Dr. Tattelbaum Discussion on Breast Implant Techniques

An Overview of Breast Implant Techniques For this article, I would like to go beyond the basic facts that are posted all over the internet and give a personal opinion based on almost two decades of experience performing thousands of breast implant procedures.

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.

Postpartum Restoration A.K.A. The Mommy Makeover

As the proud father of two beautiful children and a plastic surgeon, I have had the first hand opportunity to see how such a magnificent miracle can dramatically alter the female body.

Following child-birth skin loses elasticity and… Read More

What is ALCL?

On January 26, 2011, the FDA released an advisory notice regarding the association of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) in women with breast implants. While ALCL is technically a type of lymphoma, it appears to have a very benign course, and the condition has been completely resolved by simply removing the breast implant and capsule. It is not breast cancer. In the past 25 years, only 34 cases have been reported worldwide among an estimated 10 million+ implanted devices. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is working with the FDA to follow… Read More
