Cleveland Plastic Surgery - Case of the Week - Face Lift

February 23, 2010

These three snow patients came from Shaker Heights, Ohio and were just lying on the ground wondering what to do with themselves. Dr. Medalie happened to live in the house right behind them and recommended immediate face lifting to give them that exciting three dimensional look that is often missing from regular snow patients. They looked at all of their options and decided against the conventional three ball approach. Instead they chose the Picassoid cubist look to set themselves apart from the rest of the snow patient community. Being very good friends, they opted to have the face lift procedure performed simultaneously and also chose to share the recovery period in the same location. After the 2.5 hour surgery they were very pleased with the result and were told by Dr. Medalie to keep out of the sun and expose themselves only to cold weather in order to prolong the results.


Cleveland Plastic Surgery-Case of the Week-Breast Augmentation

February 8, 2010

This pleasant 25 year old patient of Dr. Medalie came from the Akron area with a request for breast enhancement. The surgery took place at MetroHealth's West 150th street outpatient surgery center and took approximately 1.5 hours. During the breast augmentation procedure, she had 330-360 cc saline breast implants from Allergan (Inamed) placed and then filled to 360 ccs bilaterally. Post operatively she was very pleased with her new breast contour, having gone from an "A" cup to a full "C".
