Q. Can I breastfeed after a breast lift, augmentation or reduction?

What our experts say:

Patients that have had a breast augmentation with implants or fat typically can breast feed without a problem. Likewise patients that have had a breast lift or breast reduction can breast feed without difficulty. We have had many patients in our practice that have become pregnant a year to years after having these procedures and have enjoyed breast feeding without any issues at all.

Q. Who is a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck?

What our experts say:

The best candidate is someone with skin redundancy with or without fat of the lower abdomen. Often women have skin overhanging a C-section scar and a mini tummy tuck is an excellent choice to take care of this problem. The procedure can be combined with liposuction of the abdomen if necessary without adding risk or recovery time to the procedure. The mini tummy tuck with or without liposuction can be done in our licensed ambulatory suite under a twilight anesthetic avoiding a general anesthetic but also assuring the patient a painless experience. There is less scarring with a mini tummy tuck when compared to a "full tummy tuck."
