This 32-year-old patient from Virginia Beach came to me to discuss breast implants.  She wanted an increase in her breast size and also to fill the hollow above.  She also was very interested in a full breast lift.  It is now very well established in plastic surgery that women with heavy, sagging breasts must have breast tissue removed with the lift to give the best possible result.  This woman had 400 cc implants placed and at the same time, I removed 214 grams of breast tissue on the right and 152 grams on the left.  Prior to her procedure, we discussed that her areolas were large and when implants are placed with a lift, less skin can be removed due to greater volume.  For that reason, there is an edge of her old areola next to the vertical scar.  The scar appears wide because there is pigmented skin next to it.  This can be easily removed under local anesthesia at a later time if the patient desires. Following her surgery, we can see the small amount of remaining skin on skin which demonstrates the powerful effectiveness of this type of lift.  It is an aggressive treatment for breast sag and is just as safe as the old skin tightening techniques.  I was honored to present my technique at the International Meeting of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons in Montreal, May 2015. The "After" photos were taken 7 months following the procedure.

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
