Can the Tummy Tuck Scars be Shorter in Morristown New Jersey?

2019-06-18T14:38:14+00:00June 18th, 2019|Categories: Body|Tags: , , |

The effort to make a scar shorter is part of every surgical decision that I make. I try to make the shortest scars in my facelifts, breast reductions, breast lifts and tummy tucks. In a TT we are challenged by the dog ears. The challenge is, how short one can make the scar and still avoid a dog ear. If the scar is too short the ends can be loose and produce a raised loose area that is called a dog ear. In many cases the loose skin extends to the sides and needs to be removed for the best [...]

Mini Tummy Tuck, Full Tommy Tuck or Just Liposuction?

2018-09-26T01:46:32+00:00September 26th, 2018|Categories: Body|

Mini Tummy Tuck, Full Tummy Tuck or Just Liposuction. Report from Morristown NJ This has to be the most common question that I get asked in Morristown NJ. I am sure that every plastic surgeon has to answer similar questions. The difference between the full and mini tummy tuck is all about the bellybutton. If you cut around that structure, lift the skin from the deep layers, stitch the muscles together to make the belly flatter, and move the skin above the BB, down to the pubic area, we would call the procedure a full TT. If you do liposuction and [...]

Breast Reduction and Augmentation or Minus, Plus procedure, Morristown NJ.

2018-02-15T18:31:26+00:00February 15th, 2018|Categories: Breast, News|

​If you have redundant and fairly large breasts with or without asymmetry, one optional procedure for you is a bilateral breast lift, but one thing to remember that no one is mentioning these days is that large breasts droop overtime. This is why I think a breast reduction and implant placement simultaneously makes a lot of sense. This concept of reduction augmentation or minus, plus is a bit strange, but because implants don’t sag as easily as the naturally large breasts, it is a good way to achieve larger and more uplifted breasts.

2017-04-19T13:53:34+00:00April 19th, 2017|Categories: Breast|

Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) Associated with Breast Implants explained, Morristown N.J. Anaplastic large cell lymphoma associated with breast implants is not a completely understood entity. It is not clear if this is a lymphoproliferative disorder or a true cancer. It occurs extremely rarely in patients with breast implants and is confined to the capsule, the tissue that surrounds the implant. Clinically it appears as swelling of the affected breast, which is caused by a liquid accumulation in the breast implant pocket called a seroma. Aspiration of this liquid and cytologic examination confirms the diagnosis of Anaplastic Large Cell [...]
