William P. Adams, Jr., M.D.
I’m 21 years old and have very dark under-eye circles. I’m olive-complexioned and I know the circles are hereditary. Is there any procedure that will significantly reduce or rid me of these circles?
The best thing I have found for dark circles under the eyes is a cream called Teamine. It is a prescription product that you can get through a plastic surgeon’s office. It takes about 2 weeks before results start to become apparent, but my patients have had much success with it.
I am a 37-year-old female and have always had large breasts. My pre-pregnancy size was 38D. Since my pregnancy, my breasts are very saggy and are getting more so as I lose weight. Right now I am a size 38DD. I was wondering whether a breast lift or a breast reduction would be more appropriate in my situation. I have 11 month-old twins at home, so I would like to minimize recovery time if possible.
There are several types of breast lifts or small reductions that would work well for you. During the consultation with your surgeon, a discussion of which technique would work best for you will take place. My personal preference is to use a new minimal scar lift that produces superb results in properly selected patients.
How long after having breast augmentation can you pick up children? I run a small at home daycare operation and would like to have an idea as to how long I will have to be out of work?
Unfortunately this question needs to be answered by the surgeon who the patient is contemplating seeing as it will vary greatly.
