The Pencil Test

The internet has a lot of confusing and conflicting information and for those of you reading my blogs (and I hope you do) I try to clarify concept and give my personal experience. The pencil test is one of those topics. Somewhere, sometime, someone on the internet declared that if you could hold a pencil under the fold of your breast your breast was too droopy, your implant too saggy or your breast lift was not good enough. If you can’t hold a pencil under the fold then you have what I call “gravity defying breasts”. There are two groups of… Read More

Men, Liposuction, and the Military

Men tend to be more shy when it comes to cosmetic plastic surgery. While my practice is about 80% women here in the Washington D.C area the U.S. Military unknowingly sends me a steady stream of male patients. Military doctors have decided that one way to evaluate “fitness for duty” is to have a specific ratio of neck diameter to waist diameter. If this ratio is off a discharge could ensue. While I can’t really change the diameter of the neck, I have liposuctioned liters of abdominal and flank fat from servicemen (and women) at bases all over the Maryland,… Read More

Correction of Inverted Nipples through Breast Surgery

Congenital inverted nipples are more common than people realize. However, this problem can easily be corrected under local anesthesia and can also be treated during breast surgery whether undergoing breast augmentation, reduction and or breast lift. To release the nipples, a minor incision is made at the bottom of the nipple and the breast ducts which bind the inverted nipple are released. Release of the nipple which requires the release of the underlying ducts may affected breastfeeding and sensation. If an inverted nipple is a new finding it must be evaluated prior to correction to make sure that there is… Read More

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. Hereditary, unpredictable, and often unfair, pregnancy is a body-altering experience. The body is incredibly intelligent and throughout pregnancy has the ability to change dramatically in response to the hormones associated with it. The breast become fuller, skin stretches and abdominal wall and pelvic muscles loosen, among other things. Unfortunately, the body does not always do as good of a job restoring itself. Following child-birth skin loses elasticity and… Read More

Plastic Surgery after Dramatic Weight Loss in Maryland

Weight loss is not easy as most of us know. If done through diet and exercise healthy weight loss can take months to years. Because of improved techniques for gastric bypass and the lap band procedure, we are seeing more and more patients after dramatic weight loss hoping to look normal again. Tightening all the areas of concern in the weight loss patient covers almost every aspect of cosmetic plastic surgery. Rather than going over every option, I hope to give some guiding principles. It is best to consider cosmetic surgery for weight loss when you achieve your goal weight… Read More

Maryland Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tattelbaum on Facebook, Twitter and Social Media:

I was an early adopter of AOL when my wife and I lived in Boston and she had to telecommute with her office in New York. Maryland, D.C., and Baltimore Maryland became exponentially better when high speed cable came to my home and now FIOS—which I love. I was an early adopter of the web page to promote my practice and educate prospective patients. Now plastic surgery websites are a dime a dozen. I still like to write my own content because I hope that a personal perspective is more interesting than the canned lingo I see so often. The… Read More

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian butt lift became all the rage a number of years ago when the show Extreme Makeover became popular. I’ve always been a little bit dismayed by that show because they tend to show their postoperative results even just a few weeks after surgery. In the field of cosmetic surgery the most important results come at least a year if not more after the surgery. The operation is just a small part of the entire recovery. If we inject fat in a buttocks it is sure to look full and round about six weeks after plastic surgery, not just… Read More

Botox or Dysport…. a Year Later:

So a little over a year ago Dysport® came on the market as a competitor for Botox®. We have now had vast experience with both. So which one is better? My opinion… both and neither. If you ask each manufacturer they will certainly tell you why theirs is better. While there may be subtle differences in onset and longevity both do the job and do it well. They both have made my patients very happy in Maryland and Baltimore Maryland. I think that the greatest advantage is to the patient, because there is now competition. While we really haven’t seen… 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 a breast cancer. In the past 25 years only 34 cases have been reported in the world among an estimated 10 million+ implanted devices. The American society of plastic surgeons and the American society of Aesthetic plastic surgery are working with the… Read More
