............................................................................. Today, the buttock augmentation procedure is profoundly popular. In your practice, this procedure is called the S-Curve Buttock Lift, for which you are highly lauded and sought for your expertise and excellent procedure results. Tell us about this breakthrough, and in-demand procedure, and why is it called the S-Curve? .............................................................................. At the time I created this approach and concept, very few surgeons were performing buttock enhancements, especially in the US. Many people didn’t even know this was a possibility. I always had an appreciation for the female silhouette to include a healthy and proportionate gluteal contour. Much of body contouring with liposuction and/or tummy tucks at the time ignored the buttock and full 360 degrees of the female form. At the time the term BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) was starting to be thrown around which focused on the buttock only and ascribed it to a country that does not even like the term. I patented my 360 whole body approach with the USPTO and registered the SCurve term which describes the S shape silhouette of concavity adjacent to a convexity all throughout the female silhouette. The rest is history. With Instagram and social media blowing up in the past several years, much of the starts, celebs, and “IG models” are who they are because of their posteriors, real or unreal. ............................................................................. Your practice offers a breast augmentation procedure that has a quick and rapid recovery called the “Flash Recovery”. You are among a few plastic surgeons in America who not only provides this procedure but can successfully deliver it. You have stated that “having trained under Dr. Tebbett’s, you know the techniques intimately” for this procedure. I find this to be substantially comforting. Please share a bit about what it is that you like about the “Flash Recovery” breast augmentation procedure; What this advanced procedure entails; and What are some of its benefits? .............................................................................. Dr. John Tebbetts, now retired was my breast aug mentor. He developed this less invasive, less traumatic approach to minimize all the reoperation rates that we were seeing. With almost zero bleeding or trauma to the chest tissues and rib cage, the patient doesn’t need narcotics, muscle relaxants, drain tubes, or tight uncomfortable compression wrapping. They are able to start early motion exercises on day one and have soft breasts with less capsular contracture rates. It is a win win. I actually got his blessing to name it Flash Recovery as his term for it 24 hour recovery or Out to Dinner Breast Augmentation was already patented to him. He knew I could deliver his technique.
