new year's resolution

Given the holiday months are often about vacation, rest, and relaxation, most people find it hard to keep up with the workout routine. Having two holidays back to back that result in people eating a lot of eating and sweets it is no wonder why losing weight is always on top of the resolution list year after year. The fact of the matter is that if we don’t see results quickly with diet and exercise we tend to give up and wait till next year. The year passes, and all of a sudden it’s a new decade with no discernable weight loss… Read More

Popular Cosmetic Procedures During Summer While I perform a wide… Read More

Why Butt Lifts and Augmentations are Rapidly Growing

Why Butt Lifts and Augmentations are Rapidly Growing

Now, more than ever, women are undergoing surgery to give their buttocks a lift. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has released statistics clearly revealing that butt enhancement surgery is on the rise. Yet, while many patients are opting for butt implants, doctors are now steering their patients toward butt augmentation, involving fat grafting surgery. Either way, changing the shape or look of buttocks has become the new trend, and here are some reasons why: Evolving Beauty Ideals The standards of beauty have been constantly changing and its evolution is somewhat surprising. Going back to the 90s, Kate Moss… Read More

It’s been a long time since cosmetic surgery procedures were considered strictly a woman thing. Men want, and need, to look good. It’s about looking young and fit to stay competitive in the job market and social situations. They are turning to cosmetic surgeons for help.

Here is a look at the top 5 procedures requested by men. #1. Liposuction More than 50,000 men had… Read More

Tummy Tuck Philosophy

As many of you know, I do a lot of tummy tucks. It is one of my favorite surgeries because the goal is simple– try to make your patient feel normal again. While you may think repetition could get boring  it is actually good for you, the patient.  It has allowed an efficiency that translates into shorter operative times and consistent results.  It has also allowed me to hone my tummy tuck thinking and improve upon it over the past two decades. Some of the themes of how I approach my patients are listed below. I hope they are helpful as you consider this… Read More

Maryland Plastic Surgeon Dr. Adam Tattelbaum is considered one of the top plastic surgeons in Maryland offering body contouring procedures.  The new and latest craze in body contouring is the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure according to Dr. Tattelbaum. Dr. Tattelbaum says, “the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is by far one of the fastest growing procedures in plastic surgery, the procedure allows a patient to extract fat from one area of the body like the stomach, hips and thighs and have the fat inserted into the buttock area creating a more attractive figure”.  This procedure uses some of the most advanced… Read More

How many drains? One, Two or none?

Drains are tubes that are left under the skin during an operation. They are used to remove pockets of fluid that can accumulate. After any surgery, the tissues ooze fluid to a certain degree as they heal. Fluid collections during healing can sometimes lead to infection. Despite this some areas are more prone to collections than others and not all surgeries need drains. Usually drains are removed within a week or so when there is little fluid coming out. The fluid enters a small clear bulb that looks like a grenade. The idea of removing a drain scares patients, but it is more… Read More

A recurring problem with liposuction.

Over the past few years I have seen an increasingly common pattern in patients coming in for abdominal enhancement. I am writing about it now in this blog, hoping you will read it and be able to avoid the same problem. The scenario: a woman will come in concerned about a liposuction that was done elsewhere. When I examine the patient I find a wavy irregular lower abdomen over liposuctioned, and a full under suctioned upper abdomen. Bulgy top, wavy Bottom. The conversation goes something like this: So you had liposuction? Yes, it looked like a good deal. You had your liposuction… Read More

Arm liposuction 50/50?

Arm liposuction 50/50? A patient saw me in the office yesterday. She is having a tummy tuck and breast reduction this fall. She came in again to discuss adding liposuction of the arms at the same time. She was confused though. She had done her usual research on the internet; technologies guide to cosmetic surgery, and found that only about half of the people who had the procedure in the U.S. were happy with their results. Why? She asked. I explained….the key to arm liposuction is not the fat, but the skin. We can suck fat out of almost anywhere,… Read More

Ultrasonolaserliposuction with Power Boost!

Ok, I made up this name. There is no such thing as “Ultrasonolaserliposuction with Power Boost”, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw it advertised somewhere. I really just wanted to capture your attention. I have found that anything associated with the word laser, ultra or the like tends to attract attention. So why am I talking about this? Because a cool device name doesn’t always translate into the right tool for the job. Laser liposuction, Ultrasonic liposuction, Power Assisted liposuction and even good old regular liposuction are all excellent tools. They all remove fat well, but they all shrink up skin poorly, despite… Read More

Men and plastic surgery

Check out the headline for this recent study: Dallas — Certain types of wound complications are more frequent in men than in women who undergo body contouring procedures after weight loss surgeries, according to new research results. The researchers go on to explain that men have about a four-fold risk of hematoma (blood collection under the skin) and about a twofold risk of seroma formation (fluid trapped under the skin). The authors conclude that they will need more study to understand why men have these increased risks. Now, I wasn’t a part of the study, but after 18 years in… Read More

Wear your Bikini to the Mommy Makeover?

When I plan my mommy makeovers I like my patients to bring in their favorite underwear or even bathing suit with them. No string bikinis please, no lacy panties and no granny panties. Something about an inch or two wide around the hips for a tummy tuck or similar width for a bra under the arms, something not too valuable, in case I get some marker on it. I draw the outline of your garment on your body before plastic surgery and I use the outline as a target in which to hide scars. My incisions are individualized. For example, for… Read More

Herbal supplements and bleeding in Plastic Surgery

If you’ve ever had a cosmetic surgery consult with me, and I hope you have or will, you will see that I walk my patients through what I call “a pretend day of surgery.” Each of my procedure-related talks starts out with telling patients to be sure to avoid aspirin, Ibuprofen and herbal supplements at least 2-3 weeks before their surgery. Well, the aspirin and the Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) are pretty easy to remember, but many people forget about the herbal supplements, some of which are regular food products. Many are sold in health food stores and many are potent… Read More

Tattoo Removal – Your Options & What the Future Holds

As I am fond of telling my kids, the key to tattoo removal is prevention. Unfortunately, most of the people I see, at my cosmetic surgery practices in Maryland and Baltimore Maryland, who want tattoos off never got that advice. But here I’ll provide some options each with pros and cons. Laser Tattoo Removal: Lasers can remove certain tattoos. The best results are when the tattoo has dark ink. Lasers target black best. Reds and greens are much more difficult to eradicate. Professionally applied tattoos often come off more easily because the pigment is at a more uniform level. The… Read More

Sorry I Kept You Waiting ….

I find myself running behind in the office and sometimes doing what I hate the most… keeping someone waiting for their cosmetic surgery consultation. I am on your side here. I don’t like waiting in the doctor’s office either. So first and foremost if you are reading this and I have kept you waiting, or will keep you waiting, I offer you my sincere apologies. There is more to this blog however. I thought you might find it interesting to know how and why we can get backed up. —–The cascading arrival time: While we have a good scheduling program… Read More

Labiaplasty- reducing the size of the Labia

When I started performing Labiaplasty a number of years ago I had no idea how popular it would become. A patient once told me that she regretted not having had it done when she had her breast augmentation; she just didn’t know that I did it. Because of her I added a “while you’re at it” section to my D.C. breast webpage to point out surgeries that are commonly combined. Labial tissue comes in all shapes and sizes. Some have more, others less. Common concerns patients share with me include self-consciousness during sexual activity, difficulty wearing certain clothing or swimwear… Read More
