Q&A with Dr. Peter N. Butler, MD, FACS

My silicone implants feel different a few months post-op - What could it be? How can I fix it?
It is difficult to determine the cause of breast asymmetry without an in-person exam, however, the firmer side may be developing a capsular contracture (tightening of scar tissue surrounding the implant). I recommend following up with your original surgeon if possible or seeking out a local plastic surgeon for an exam.
Significant Breast ptosis - am I a good candidate for a Lift?
You may be a great candidate for a mastopexy to lift the breasts and create more symmetry in the areolas. In addition, a patient may be a candidate for auto-augmentation or fat transfer instead of breast implants.
Can I consider a fat transfer in my temples?
Yes, fat transfer to the temples is an option if you are happy with the result of filler. You may need to wait until the filler is mostly dissolved before having fat transfer so the surgeon can see the true volume deficit.
Am I a candidate for a facelift at 28?
You are too young/ not a candidate for a surgical facelift, but may be a candidate for lower face PDO threads and dermal filler to the chin. mental crease, and marionette areas.
Time for a lower face and neck lift (42)?
You appear to be a better non-surgical candidate based on your photos. You ideally on want two surgical facelifts in your lifetime. There are many non-surgical methods and devices used to treat your concerns. Ultherapy, RF microneedling, Botox, dermal filler, PDO threads, etc.
