I’m 31 years old with three kids and I live in the Virginia Beach area…

Q) I’m 31 years old with three kids and I live in the Virginia Beach area. I’m interested in getting a tummy tuck because I have bad stretch marks and loose belly skin. I’m worried about finding a great doctor and the cost. Do you recommend any great doctors in my area who offer the tummy tuck procedure?

A) I recommend that you find a qualified board certified plastic surgeon on the ASPS website (American Board of Plastic Surgeons) or on the ASAPS Web site (American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). Each physician needs to have at least six years of experience and training, with three of those years specific to plastic surgery, to be an ASPS member. They also have to be certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery and follow a strict code of ethics. They are required to take continuing education courses that include techniques on patient safety and they work with you, as your partner, to achieve your desired goals.

I’m 55 years old and I’m having a tummy tuck with some liposuction done next month…

Q) I’m 55 years old and I’m having a tummy tuck with some liposuction done next month. I was told that I should move around after surgery as soon as I can get out of bed and that moving around encourages healing and assists in a shorter recovery time. I would think rest after surgery would be more beneficial. Why does moving around help?

A) There are a few reasons why I also encourage my patients to move around and walk after surgery. During surgery, massage boots are used to help blood circulate from the legs. The best way to help blood circulate after surgery is by simply walking because the muscles in your legs contract, sending blood back to your heart. This decreases the chance of blood clots that can break off and go to the lungs. We often encourage our patients to drink clear liquids the night after surgery to get them up and walking to and from the bathroom. The sooner you get back to performing your normal activities, the less sick you will feel.

I encourage my patients to walk for about five minutes, or for as long as they can, every two to three hours the night after surgery. Then the next day, I encourage my patients to get dressed in comfortable clothes and to walk around the house and even outside. It decreases the chance of pneumonia, blood clots, and other symptoms when patients are as active after a tummy tuck as they were before. Most of my patients also do not simply have the time to lie around; they have responsibilities or work that requires their attention. I also recommend that you use as little pain medication as possible due to the associated side effects.

Three years ago I got a doctor recommendation to get a breast reduction…

Q) Three years ago I got a doctor recommendation to get a breast reduction. I lived in South Carolina, was on Medicaid, and I was told to lose weight in order to receive approval for the breast reduction. I now live in Georgia where I am experiencing the same back problems and dealing with extra breast tissue under my right arm. I’d like to know if my insurance would approve my reduction now that I’ve been at my job for over a year. I am on Aetna PPO insurance and my breast size is 42 DD.

A) Whether or not your insurance covers your breast reduction will depend on certain factors. First, is your physician in network or out of network? Not all physicians participate in insurance plans, especially plastic surgeons. If you’d like to stay in network, meaning that you will have no payments or a limited number of payments, you should find which plastic surgeons participate in your plan. Second, does you health insurance plan cover breast reduction surgery? Not all plans cover all surgeries. It is up to your employer providing you with your health plan to decide if the plan covers all procedures. Unfortunately, you may not be able to find out unless a code is created after being examined by a physician. The insurance company uses this code to decide whether or not the procedure is covered. If you go to a network provider then you just need to bring your insurance information with you to the examination. All of my patients who have undergone a breast reduction tell me it has improved their lives drastically. Good luck!

I’m looking into getting a rhinoplasty here in Brooklyn, where I live, or in California…

Q) I’m looking into getting a rhinoplasty here in Brooklyn, where I live, or in California. I’d like a surgeon who is also a great listener and who understands that I want a unique nose. What doctors would you recommend?

A) I recommend that you find a board certified plastic surgeon in New York because you live there. After a rhinoplasty surgery you will have frequent follow-up visits for at least a year. It is easier to follow up where you live than having to travel to a faraway surgeon. Also, I always encourage that my patients come and see me post-op when they have any questions.

I also recommend that you go to a surgeon who is a member of the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgery). A physician needs at least six years of surgery experience and training, with three of those years specific to plastic surgery, in order to be an active ASPS member. They follow a strict code of ethics and are required to take continuing education courses that include techniques on patient safety. Your surgeon should be able to work with you, as your partner, to achieve your desired goals.
