Submit your question below about any cosmetic procedure to be considered for posting with an answer from one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

Sorry we can't answer all questions. We try to select questions that have the widest general interest.
I was wondering what is the difference between a surgeon who is only board-certified versus one who also is a member of ASAPS?
I have very puffy bags under my eyes and very noticeable crow's-feet. I will be 45 in one month. Is there something that can be done to repair this? The bags are definitely the worst problem.
I have had a consultation for liposuction throughout my legs and stomach. I also want to have breast implants. Is it safe to have both procedures done at the same time? What are the increased risks?
I am overweight. I am 5’5 and weight about 225lbs. I would like to have some body parts liposuctioned. Can I do this now? I think it would really help me get on a diet plan and jump-start my further weight loss. The insides of my thighs are fat and bumpy. Would liposuction also help solve that problem?
Can a tummy tuck be performed on a 33-year-old woman who has not yet had children but is planning to do so? If so, will I have any problems during/after birth?
I am 54 years old and look as young as 34 years old. I have had a double chin as far back as I can remember, even in my early 20’s, and it appears to be a family trait because I see it in other family members. I have a small fat deposit in the submental area and I was told that if I had liposuction in the area that it would leave a “turkey waddle.” Is the liposculpture enough to make the skin retract or would I need more procedures? My skin is not loose in that area nor is it hanging.
I will be having breast augmentation within the next few months. Which implants are more natural looking and natural feeling – silicone or saline?
I am 32 years old and have two lines between my eyes that are driving me crazy. Is Botox the best solution for this problem?
I am currently only 17 years old. Since I was young, I have had very large breasts. Currently I wear a 40DD bra. I have had back pain and neck pain and can only assume that it is from having large breasts. I wanted to know if I have to be a certain age to be able to receive a breast reduction, or if I could do it now at 17?
