Since having my first child 8 years ago I have had a bulge that appears when I contract my abs at the top of my stomach near my ribs, very painful and random at first! Is this Rectus Diastasis? I always thought it was from the c-section, but after seeing and asking so many doctors, even getting a…

Possibly, so consult a board-certified plastic surgeon for an in-person evaluation. Based upon your description, bulging weakness of the upper abdominal wall mid-line, is probably diastasis rectus. This is unlikely to improve with exercises, and abdominoplasty / tummy tuck is an excellent way to restore mid-line support. Tummy tuck also provides enhanced muscle tone and contour, reduced tummy fat and tighter skin. I would recommend looking at other causes for your pain, since diastasis is usually painless.

I am 38 years old and experiencing descent of the cheek pad area which has in turn resulted in a droop of the Nasolabial region, giving a tired and older look. I have tried fillers multiple times but not quite solved the problem . I am wondering if a mini lift would help address the issue. I have…

You may be correct that Mini Facelift is the solution since it addresses cheek descent (skin, fat and fibrous support), jowling, mouth commissure changes, and the jawline. Hyaluronic acid fillers are often used in conjunction with that procedure, and fat grafting can be worthwhile. Consult a board certified plastic surgeon who performs both standart facelift and modified lifts, such as the mini facelift for an in-person evaluation.

I am 5'8" and 230 lbs and a size M. I am actively trying to lose weight, but now have a herniated disc in c5/c6. I think the weight of my breasts are causing this. Is it more important to lose weight before or after the surgery? It is extremely hard for me to exercise at this point, but I am…

Breast reduction could help. Weight loss is a great idea. Herniated disc problems will likely continue. Those are the most simple answers, but a consultation with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon would give you better information. There are two sides of the coin with reduction and weight loss. Lose the weight first and your surgeon can give you the best job of lifting and matching body proportions. Have the reduction first and exercise should become more comfortable, allowing easier weight loss. The large breasts probably didn't cause your cervical disc disease, but may aggravate it's symptoms. Reducing the breasts will not likely eliminate the symptoms. Improvement is possible. Weight loss will give you life-long benefits, so a moderate weight or BMI should be your goal for many reasons, other than breast related symptoms and appearance. Best wishes.

I have size K breasts. I weigh 170 lbs and am 5'3". Even losing weight I generally only go down 1-2 cups. I would love to have them reduced but my insurance company outlines a path of physical therapy, massage, chiropractic consultation , and weight loss prior to their approval of the procedure. I…

You are correct that breast reduction will likely help you in many ways, and your plastic surgeon is in an excellent position to perform the surgery and post op care. The surgeon is not very capable of making your insurance company change their restrictions. The plan restrictions are a product of contract negotiations between your employer and the insurance company. They frustrate reconstructive surgeons on a daily basis. You should contact the insurance company for their recommendation about the proposed path to meet their requirements. If you eventually find that the requirements are unrealistic for you, you may consider affordable care through your plastic surgeon, outside of the insurance plan. In many cases surgery, anesthesia, facility fees, lab work, etc. can be purchased as a package well below hospital / insurance prices, if your have to pay out-of-pocket. Best wishes.
