Do I need to stay overnight in the hospital after an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)?

Many of our patients are able to have an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, on an out-patient basis. This allows them to recover in the comfort of their own home. Patients can elect to have Exparel which is a 72-hour anesthetic agent that helps reduce the level of discomfort and results in the need for less pain medication. Patients often find that they receive better attention, help, and care when they can designate a significant other, family member or friend to take...

Am I a candidate for an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck?)

The ideal candidate for an abdominoplasty is a person who is within 10-15 pounds of their ideal weight, has a BMI of 28 or below, has excess skin, stretchmarks and/or muscle laxity following weight loss or pregnancy. The abdominoplasty procedure removes excess skin, can remove all or some of the stretchmarks on the lower abdomen and repairs the muscles that can stretch with pregnancy. Women often find the abdomen protrudes out regardless of how many sit-ups they do or how thin...

Do I need to replace my breast implants every 10 years?

It is a common belief that breast implants need to be replaced every 10 years. The need to replace breast implants occurs when an implant ruptures and/ or the implants become firm, known as capsular contracture. The rupture rate is higher with Saline implants than with Silicone Cohesive Gel implants. The most common reason for capsular contracture is bleeding around the implant. This could be surgical bleeding at the time of surgery, trauma to the breast at any time after surgery...

Breast Lift without the incision: Dual-Plane Technique

Dr. Leverett has extensive experience with Breast Augmentation using the Dual Plane technique. With a Dual Plane Breast Augmentation the implants are placed under the muscle in the upper portion of the breast, and over the muscle in the lower portion. In many cases this allows patients experiencing minor droop, known as ptosis, to achieve a lifted appearance without the standard external breast lift incision. Patients are able to maintain a smooth transition with the muscle coverage...

HOW TO CHOOSE A BREAST IMPLANT: A to Z

Breast implants are produced in many sizes and several shapes. They are primarily saline (salt water) filled or silicone (cohesive gel) filled with similar shells (silicone based outer covering). Saline implants are less costly. In some patients, they provide excellent enhancement. However, if there is insufficient breast tissue coverage, saline implants have the highest incidence of visual and palpable ripples. They also have a higher incidence of lateralization and bottoming...
