Let’s look at a few answers from 

Dr. Finger is considered an expert in his field of plastic surgery and has been practicing in Savannah since 1973.

Patient Question:

“My large hanging abdomen has me really depressed and I have been researching procedures but am curious to know what you guys suggest. Liposuction? Skin Removal? I am 32 in perfect health, 4 c-sections.”

Expert Answer:

If you have a ton of extra skin from losing and gaining weight and multiple pregnancies, you  are probably a much better candidate for a complete tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty. A liposuction would leave you with too much excess. However, it would be best to have a liposuction of your flanks at the same time as the tummy tuck. Thank you for your question.

Patient Question:

“I have lost fat in my forehead. I don’t have wrinkles as of yet. I’d like to add fat so there is no longer a dent, but also a bit more roundness and fullness. I see that they do this a lot in Korea to create a round forehead. Is this a good option?”

Expert Answer: Yes, fat can be transferred to your forehead and brow to replace lost volume. Fat transfer to the face can be done with a facelift or independently.  Thank you for your question.

“Is forty-eight hours an absolute period for everyone not to drink prior to plastic surgery? Typically, I drink approximately 16 ounces of Moscato per night. I also drink several bottles of water per day. I have had several prior cosmetic procedures without abiding by the forty-eight hour rule. Just luck?”

Expert Answer: Alcohol is a diuretic and causes some dehydration. This is not good during surgery. In addition, alcohol tends to inhibit your clotting mechanism, which causes additional bleeding and bruising. You should discuss this with your surgeon, but forty-eight hours sounds very reasonable to me.”  Thank you for your question.
