What Happens To The Belly Button After A Tummy Tuck?

Patients sometimes seem confused about what happens to the belly button after a full or standard tummy tuck. The fate of the belly button depends on the type of tummy tuck performed.

How Small Can A Breast Reduction Go?

Before discussing how small a breast reduction can go, I first want to comment on breast reduction surgery itself. Breast reduction is perhaps one of the most gratifying operations that I perform for my patients. It is fascinating to me how long people wait before they choose to go ahead with it.

medical tourism

Medical tourism refers to the practice of people leaving their own country to seek medical treatment abroad. Why are so many people pursuing plastic surgery overseas? Because it’s “cheaper” there.  In the United States, insurance companies do not cover cosmetic or plastic surgery procedures, so people look for ways to cut costs.
