Cleveland Plastic Surgery -Case of the Week-Breast Augmentation and Mini Abdominoplasty

October 22, 2009

This patient from Beechwood, Ohio came to Dr. Medalie desiring breast and body contouring. She had two children and wanted to regain the fullness of her breasts during pregnancy as well as reduce the appearance of her breast stretch marks. She also wanted to reduce some of the fatty tissue of the abdomen and tighten the lower abdominal skin. During surgery it was decided to augment her with 330 cc saline "Natrelle" implants inflated to 360 cc. Liposuction was performed on the upper and lower abdomen and sides, and a limited lower abdominoplasty was performed to tighten the lower abdominal musculature and skin and help reduce some of the abdominal stretch marks. She was pleased with her post operative breast and body contour.


Cleveland Plastic Surgery -Case of the week-Blepharoplasty

October 14, 2009

This pleasant young patient from Akron, Ohio complained of excessive puffiness under her eyelids (especially her right lower eyelid). Though she was in her twenties, she had a genetic excess of fatty tissue in the lower lids. A limited blepharoplasty with fat removal was performed. Post-operatively her lower lids had an even contour, and no puffiness could be seen. The scar was imperceptable.
