I have wanted a reduction since I was a teen. It is documented in my medical record from 12 years old, with complaints of shoulder & back pain. I know I am a prime candidate for both a lift and reduction but have waited to have children first. Six months ago I had my 2nd child that I am still…

Breast Reduction Lift After Nursing - I usually recommend a minimum of 3-6 months after breast-feeding to do a breast reduction. Waiting 6 months would be better to be able to see the final result of the shape and contrast of the breast.

Flying After Tummy Tuck and Lipo - In general I do not recommend that patients fly for at least a month after any type of significant cosmetic surgery until they are completely healed. You will increase your chance for having an embolism from prolonged flights, if you are not completely recovered.

I am 22 year old woman and I am planning to reshape my nose. Does the surgery have any side effects? How much time does it takes to heal and how do I take care of my nose after the surgery?

Rhinoplasty Recovery - The recovery after Rhinoplasty is usually about 7-10 days max and one can resume normal activities after 3 weeks. I do not allow patients to wear glasses on the bridge of their nose for about 4 weeks to allow for maximum early wound healing. It does takes up to one year to see the final result, in most cases, and longer in a patient that has thicker skin or is a secondary rhinoplasty patient.

I have droopy eyelids, but also sagging jowls and loose neck skin. Does this require a complete face lift? What is the approximate cost and recovery time required for this?

Recovery Time After Eyelid Surgery - Recovery time after Blepharoplasty is usually 7-10 days. Blepharoplasty is done commonly with a lower facelift if you have facial fat atrophy and central sagging. This should be done in the hands of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with expertise in Facial Rejuvenation and has an understanding of the science of aging of the face.
