Keller Funnels

Keller Funnels

I blogged about his topic a few days ago but I wanted to stress how much easier the keller funnel makes Louisville  breast augmentations.

The funnel looks like the bags used to apply icing to cakes. The way it works is I am able to drop the silicone implant into the funnel, place the smaller opening of the funnel thru the incision into the implant pocket. Then I just squeeze and the implant goes in. This keeps it from touching the skin and getting contaminated. Skin bacteria are thought to be one of the causes of scar capsule formation. Thus, the hope is that using the funnels will help reduce capsular contracture rates.

Laser Tattoo Removal…are you a candidate?

Louisville, KY Laser Tattoo Removal.

Not all skin types are candidates for laser tattoo removal. Darker complected patients may not be good candidates because the laser can bleach the skin. If you are considering laser tattoo removal please click this link and complete the Fitzpatrick Scale evaluation.

If you are skin type I-IV you are likely to be a good candidate for Louisville Tattoo Laser treatments.

Better but still the same Breast…

When I meet a new patient considering a Louisville Breast Augmentation, a Louisville Breast Lift or a Louisville Breast Reduction they often share a common misconception. That is, after one of the aforementioned procedures, their breast tissue will change. This isn’t the case.

After an augmentation the breast will be larger. The upper volume will be restored. Droop can be corrected. BUT…the breast tissue that sits on top of the implant is still the same breast tissue you started with. It will not become firmer. The skin will not change. Stretch marks will not go away etc…

The same is true for a reduction or lift. These are great operations because they work! But, again, the nature and consistency of the breast tissue itself is unchanged.

Lip Lines

Lip lines are a common complaint in my Louisville Plastic Surgery office.

Treatment options for lip lines include Louisville Botox, Louisville Dysport, fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, and lasers.

Botox, Dysport and fillers are office procedures that only take a few minutes to have done. Lasers, depending on their power levels, can be done in the office or sometimes in the operating room.
