Different patients request different options, and a solution which is desired by one patient may not be so good for another patient. This does not only apply to breast augmentation, but also to all other types of cosmetic surgery. There is no precut “one-size-fits-all” recipe which applies to all patients, therefore we suggest to take sufficient time to discuss in depth all options between surgeon and patient.

Breast enlargement – Autologous fat transplantation
The one of the dreams of Plastic surgery, and like most surgeons (at least the ones that I talk to) is the future of Plastic surgery. Take the patient´s own (autologous) fat from somewhere else and inject it for breast enlargement (or buttocks or face). In the past, this has been a very troublesome procedure since it was very time consuming suctioned fat for transfer, and the survival rates where somewhat unpredictable.

The idea sound appealing, because the concept is to use the cesarean incision to perform the abdominoplasty in one go. Nevertheless, our experience with combining a ceasarean with abdominoplasty in the same session is slightly controversial. It may be done, but the rates of certain complications are , although not uniformly confirmed in scientific literature, slightly raised. Read more “Combine cesarean section with abdominoplasty ?”
Can abdominoplasty and hernia repair be done in one operation ?
They can and they normally should. A lot depends on the extent of the hernia, and BMI guidelines for repairing larger hernias together with a tummy tuck are normally somewhat stricter. Read more “Abdominoplasty and Hernia Repair”
If patients approach a nose correction after having had an accident, the procedure can be a lot more complicated. Depending on the nature of nasal trauma, in case of multi fragmented fractures the osteotomies (which is the correction of the position of the bones) may be less stable than in a primary rhinoplasty.

Is not normally a problem after straightforward breast enlargement, since the majority of techniques does not interfere with the breast tissue itself, but works underneath the breast muscle or the breast gland.
Scientific data shows that 25% of women having had breast augmentation surgery cannot breastfeed. The number of patients who cannot breastfeed although not having had any breast augmentation surgery is also 25% …this means identical. Read more “Breastfeeding after breast augmentation?”
The decision depends also on the preference of the individual surgeon; it is not absolute necessary. In our Cirumed Clinic specialist group, we solved the question in the way that a highly qualified gynecologist furnishes patients before breast enlargement, breast uplift or a breast reduction with a so-called 4-D- ultrasound.

Laser Liposuction case study
When performing liposuction with laser, the laser does selectively break down fat cells. The advantages for the patient are faster recovery, less irregularities, less pain and overall a better result. Read more “Laser Liposuction versus Tumescent Liposuction – the difference”
Possibly yes, however, aesthetic medicine is a widespread field where different treatments are applied for different symptoms. Aesthetic medicine can definitely not replace facelift surgery on a wider range , but we do observe the average “entrance” facelift age for being slightly on the rise.
