Everyone getting a breast lift wants to have the shortest scar, the best quality scar, and the best breast shape possible. Sometimes, all three goals are achievable with one lift type, but more often there is some give and take. For instance, in most situations a scar that is just around the areola results in the shortest scar, but it is often the widest scar as well with the least ability to project the breast. (Even still, it also sometimes gives the best result in some situations.) Since Dr. Teitelbaum performs all the different types of mastopexy procedures in conjunction with a breast augmentation, he can help you sort through your options to find what will give you the result you want based on the shape of your breasts.
Dr. Teitelbaum was a member of the national plastic surgery task force that developed the Covid-19 protocols for plastic surgery offices. He is therefore well-versed in all of the recommendations and his office meets or exceeds all of them. By now you are familiar with all the obvious measures such as reminding patients and staff not to come to the office if they have any symptoms, taking temperatures, maintaining social distancing, having everyone wear masks, placing hand sanitizers everywhere, reducing the number of patients in the office at one time, testing all surgical patients, etc. One unique feature is that Dr. Teitelbaum’s operating room has "laminar flow" – a very advanced system that directs the flow of air from a large diffuser on the ceiling to exhausts near the floor, ensuring that the fresh air flows in one direction. This not only reduces the chance of COVID infections for the patients and staff, but it also reduces the risk of surgical infections.
