dear Dr. Pataki, i contacted you some months back, i would like some minor lipo on the face, plus fat injections to the face area.

secondly. i had some lipo on my stomach area done a few years back by a discount service in poland. boy that was a mistake. they did something called "high definition" on my abs, and they not only did not complete the entire abs area, they didn't take even HALF the fat out, and now 2 years later, its still just looks worse, uneven and quite an odd shape it has given. plus i should have done my low back as well, maybe Dr. Pataki would help me with these areas.

1. what KIND of lipo do you use?
2. can you do micro lipo on the face for the jowl and under the neck areas?
3. for fat reinjection, i was thinking cheekbone increase, a small amount in the cheeks themselves, to fill gaps from ache and aging, as well as some under the eyebrows to lift the brows up a little, and some in the chin to help my profile. i don't expect MAJOR changes. it just needs a little here and there.
4. ive also considered a rhynoplasty, so if you want to give me a plan for that too, i will consider it (depending on the downtime)

attached are some photos as you had requested.

i won't be back in budapest until late october or early november. And, i might only be there for a few weeks, so we would need to schedule things around that time period.

please give me an idea on appointment availabilities.

thank you, Nadine

Dear Doctor Pataki,

I had three breast surgeries by now, done by different plastic surgeons and was never satisfied with the result. I had a breast implant exchange 8 month ago, the severely contracted implant was changed to a polyurethan covered one. The pocket was modified to a submuscular. I didnt want the implant size the surgeon told me, becouse I thought that it will be too large. I am still smoking, have been doing so for 10 years. I was also given an internal breast lift, as I did not want external scars. I was first happy with results. It was such a surprise a few months after later for one on my breasts to drop so dramatically leaving me so lopsided. I still have pain sometimes in the breast.
My doctor suggests me an external lift, he says that could solve the problem. He does not give more explanation.
I dont know what to do. Could you explain me the situation, I am sending some pictures attached.

Could you do the operation? I could stay for 5 days in Hungary. I am very low with my budget, could you discount your price?

Thank you very Much

Dear Dr. Pataki,

My girlfriens wants an implant exchange to an oversized one.

Ok I will include some photos in this email and ask some more questions if I may?
My girlfriend wants extra high profile if you do them and anatomical shape, she would also like to know what brand you use as there is a new type of silicone gel implant that is 30% lighter than all the others, very useful when going extra large. The brand name is B-Lite, they were developed in Israel but are manufactured in Germany. Please see enclosed video; http://youtu.be/HwmCVp7lecI also could you tell me how long once we go ahead will it take to supply the custom implants as my girlfriend needs to apply for a visa from Thailand. As you can see her last Thai surgeon did a poor job and made the pockets at different heights also her nipples riding high on her breast, can this be corrected?

I am waiting to your answer

Hello dr. Pataki,

I have heard back form Manka, my friend and she is curious about what the Premium plastic surgery clinic suggested, the fat grafting. Please find her questions below:

Is it the same than fat injections ? How is that procedure? What area they take it from? What is the suggested recovery time?

I have notice that my upper lip is going downward. Could injecting a little bit of fat in my cheeks lift my smile?

Could I have this done this summer on it's own?

I thought to fill the lines on my forehead also, perhaps the same method would work?

And, could she have an appointment for the last week of July for a consultation?

Hello Dr. Pataki,

I will include some background information about myself. I'm a 25 year old female in good health. I don't smoke and I don't have any illnesses. I lost over 45kg and I'm currently 63kg and 176cm tall. I have been at a stable weight for more than a year now. There is loose skin on my arms, stomach, thighs, breasts and lower back. I believe I will need a 360 lower body lift, thigh lift, breast lift and arm lift. Perhaps some liposuction for body sculpting but I don't know. I'm free this summer between July-October and I would like to have the surgery(ies) as early as possible in July.

If you could please answer the following questions:

1) your estimated quote for all the procedures combined. Will I get a discount as they will be several procedures all together?
2)How long will I stay in the clinic? Can you give me any deals on accommodation?
3) how many procedures can I have performed at the same time? Is it possible to do all at the same time? If not, how long will I have to wait to complete the other surgeries? Like I mentioned, I'm free for three months July-October and I would like very much to have it all completed within this time.

Many thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hello,

Concerning my combined surgery circumferential abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, arm and thigh plasty I will attach some photos as I would like a specific plan. Please could you explain the costs of the next few things. How much is the anaesthesia? I don't understand why there is an extra payment for anaesthesia for combined? What is the reason for this? How much is it for liposuction? If it is per area then how many areas are you suggesting? Both arms, both thighs, waist, lower back are 7 areas. I don't think I will require lipo on my bum. Could you explain to me the total costs and areas please?
How do you charge for hospital stay. This is the first clinic I've encountered that is charging for the usual 1 or 2 night stay? My boyfriend will be coming with me and I would like to not pay for both of us. Why is the second night stay not included in the procedure?

I will forward pictures by email of breast with capsular . I believe they are smooth coated and about 575 cc.

This would be my 4th surgery. I do not want my bra size bigger , just replacement as shape and look is very bad as they are projecting outward due to squeeze capsular and need to lye flat .

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I am interested to know about the conditions for having a rhinoplasty and may be a endoscopic cheek lift (incision around temple inside the hair line) for improvement of lateral brow, minor sagging of cheek area and nasolabial fold.

I am 49 years old male, This would be my first rhinoplasty, non-smoker, never been in a hospital, no mental disorder, not on medication, occasionally a beer or two, not allergic to certain substances and don't drink herbal tea.

I used Photoshop and have modified my images to visually express what my wishes are. Pictures are attached. The image marked "1" is my current nose; the image marked "2" is the one I would like to have; and the image marked "3" is both before and after in one so you could see how much change is applied. Or maybe you have a better suggestion.

So, as you can see, my main objectives regarding the nose are as follows:

1. Correction of retracted alar, do you use cartilage graft for this? From my ear?
2. Removed hump, this is routine I guess?
3. Lowered radix (nasoforntal), is it possible to lower the Radix?
4. Deprojection
5. Finer tip contour (sharper tip, smaller radius) and more triangle and not so much boxy.

Other general questions:
- Is it possible for you to send me a two before and after picture from cases similar to mine especially with retracted ala?
- What is your error figure and how it is handled if the result didn't go according to the plan?
- Do you use graphic like Photoshop or Vectra to discuss and agree detail? Or what method do you use to visualize the plan and agreement?
- How many days before the surgery do you need me to be there?
- What is the name of the hospital where the surgery will take place?
- Could you please help me to find a good and affordable hotel close to your practice?
- Do I need to fill any form or something? Or in general, what is the procedure and what steps I shall go through?

Thanks in advance.

I would like to undergo breast implant surgery with the best available implant. I have breast asymmetry.
I have a few questions about the implant, incision and costs.
I note that you use high quality implants. It is the Hydrogel prosthesis that interests me as the safety aspect is exceptional.
Does your clinic use Hydrogel implants?
The transaxillial route is my preferred incision. Do you use an endoscope procedure for this or does he use another technique?

The quote you have provided fits my expectations. Does this amount include the 27% government tax or does this need to added?

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I have one child at present, and we are planning to have another with my husband. The pregnancy has worn down my body. I was toxaemic, I put on 30 kg, from which I have lost 34 kg during the lactation (I have nursed my child for one year and I had a Caesarian section). My breasts have become soft and a little sagging, my tummy looks like ugly and some fat has remained there. I would like to know whether there is any method for transfering the adipose tissues from my belly to my breasts, while making the tummy tighter and the breast harder?

Dear Doctor,

I would like to know if I could have an abdominoplasty and a breast augmentation surgery supported via national insurance. This was recommended by my radiologist during my pregnancy due to change in appearance. I had 30 kg extra weight, my skin got very loose, my breasts are really small, I have really low self esteem and even my husband left me. I would like to move on and meet others but this is impossible with the current state of my body. I feel frustrated even when I see the doctor. Once I used to be admired and now I have absolutely none of this. All I want is a decent relationship and a pleasant appearance even if I have a baby boy. Currently I am unemployed but before I go back to working in health care, I would like to have these corrective surgeries done (hopefully for an acceptable price). I am a 33-year old mum from Budapest. I would be most grateful if somebody could get in touch with regards of the process of applying for a procedure.

Dear Doctor,

I am already 30 years old and I have always been ashamed of my breasts, which I have been concealing in my entire life. There is such a great difference between my breasts as if they were two women’s breasts. Their shape and even the aerolas are radically different. It is really shocking! Is it necessary to carry out several corrective surgeries in such cases, or is it possible to put them right in the frame of one complex operation? What outcome can I count on?

I have three beautiful sons, whom I have nursed for 6 years in all, each for 2 years. My breasts are are really sagging. Although I am happy with the size of them, but they are hanging down in an ugly way. I would like to ask whether there is anything to do with the issue, because it truly disturbs me.

Thank you for your answer in advance!

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I cannot grow familiar with my breasts with the silicone implants. I have them operated on the solicitation of my boyfriend, but our relationship has ended. The surgery was three months ago. I have so regretted it! The implants are really disturbing me. I had small (75B), but nice, aesthetical breasts before the augmentation. What should I count on if I would have them removed? Could I get my old breasts back? I have 280 cc implants under the glandula. Would you undertake the surgery? Wouldn’t it look like ugly?
Thank you!

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I had a breast surgery and my back is really sore. I went to see a rheumatologist the other day and he recommended BEMER magnetic therapy. My breast surgery was 4 days ago. Can I attend the therapy or would it have any negative affects? I didn’t tell the rheumatologist that I had a breast surgery. I have a 395 cc Nagor implant in dual plane position.

Yours faitfully,

Noemi

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I am planning to have a breast augmentation surgery. I have been reading a lot about it and I got a bit scared having read that many girls’ implant has ”slided down” and they needed to have 1-3 correction surgeries (one of them even had it done with a well-known surgeon!). I don’t seem to be able to find anything regarding this issue. Please help me understand why and how this can happen that there are girls whose breasts move downwards three months post-surgery. Why doesn’t they stay in their place? And would I experience more pain with the implants if I usually experience breast pain when I have my period? I had an ultrasound which showed that everything was healthy and that the increase in hormons causes the breast pain from ovulation to the start of the period.

Yours Sincerely,

Clementina

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I would like to ask you about the following question: Is it possible that the sensibility will return in that occurrence, if 4 months after my breast reduction, my nipples and also my areola are still completely insensible? Is there any way to stimulate it? If there won’t be any improvement expected, is it possible to solve the problem with a corrective surgery?

Dear Doctor,

I am desperate. I had breast surgery in 2008. I know that the utilisation of the low-grade implants is not the operating surgeon’s fault, but I should pay him for a preventive ultrasound examination. I am divorced and I am raising two young children therefore I cannot afford this.
Hospitals receive me only with referral, but where can I find an ultrasound examination which is carried out to determine the possible problems? Aren’t these issues managed like a treadmill? Where can I ask for help without a penny if there is trouble? Who or which hospital or plastic surgery could deal with such problems for nominal charge?

Thank you for your help,

Dear Dr. Pataki,
My breast surgery (augmentation) will be one year old in the near future. I would like to ask you, whether it is possible now to carry out a CT exam instead of mammography to look at the condition of breasts? I heard that this examination is painless and provides more detailed results, because it is able to examine the areas behind the prosthesis as well. They say that the exam is carried out in prone position, not like the mammography.

Dear Doctor,
I am seeking you out with a rather point of great nicety for me. I am 50 years old, but I feel far younger both internally and externally, which can be confirmed by my neighbourhood. I have a terrible problem. I am 152 cm tall and my breasts are extremely big. I can hardly buy a bra.
My breasts are so huge, they are sagging and they touch my navel. They make me several difficulties. I am full of mental inhibitions, I do not go to a swimming pool or a beach, and what is worse I have not been having any partnerships for 10 years. I am also feeling ashamed, but I do not understand when I have became like that.
I gave birth to my child 17 years ago, I have put on weight since then and my breasts have suddenly changed. Nowadays they cause me health problems, my back is always hurting and I have pain in my belly because of the stiffener. The lower part of my breasts always infalmes and hurts. Unfortunately we are living under the poverty line with my child.
I do not know whether there are any possibilities for a corrective surgery for health considerations. I am feeling that I haven’t got life, I am disgusted by myself.
Thank you for your answer in advance!
Have a nice day!

Dear Dr. Pataki,
I met your name on a forum page, dealing with breast augmentation, on the Internet, and I read really good things about you.
My problem is the following: there is a fibroadenoma in both of my breasts. My family doctor said, that if they do not cause problems (they are not growing or hurting), then there is no reason to agitate them. Is this true? If these nodes were removed from my breasts, surely they would disappear then (without a breast augmentation).
I would like to ask, whether you see any opportunities to remove the nodes (fibroadenomas) and carry out a breast augmentation surgery at the same time? If yes, then I would like you to be my operating surgeon.
Thank you for your help in advance!
Yours faithfully,

Dear Dr. Pataki,
I had breast surgery 8 months ago. I was on ultrasound examination one week ago, and fortunately everything was found in perfect shape. I do not really have any complaints, sometimes (I think because of weather changes) I feel some pinching pain. I wear the sport bra during the day and many times during the night as well, because I feel it truly comfortable.
My question would be the following: Do I have to make an appointment with my surgeon if I haven’t got any complaints? If yes, how long and how often is it recommended to visit him?
Thank you for your answer!

Dear Doctor,
I am 20 years old and I have absolutely small tuberous breasts, but fortunately they are the same size and shape. I would not like to enlarge them at all. It would be my biggest dream to have them a little more rounded.
Is it possible to change the shape of tuberous breasts with a quite small implant? I heard, that in case of tuberous breasts corrective surgeries (like breast lift surgery and nipple reduction) are necessary in addition to insertion of the implants.
To be honest, I could bear financially the insertion of the implants, but I cannot afford more surgeries. Is it possible to get off only with the breast augmentation, and have my breasts more rounded with nothing but the implants?
Thank you very much for your answer in advance!

Dear Doctor,
I was operated because of breast cancer 10 years ago. Unfortunately my breast had to be completely excenterated. An adjustable breast implant was inserted under the muscle, but over the years it has creased. I put on some weight because I was reached by menopause therefore the difference between my breasts has become significant. I always have to stuff my bra with textile insertions to make my breasts look alike to a certain degree.
My question is: is there any way of reconstructing my breast from my own tissues?
I look forward to your answer, which I thank you in advance!

Dear Dr. Pataki,
One of my scars is 4, and the other is 5 cm long after my breast augmentation. This really annoys me. I wonder why could this happen. My breasts were alike and now the implants are the same size in both as well. Is it possible that my surgery was carried out by two surgeons, but they did not tell me this exactly?
Thank you!

Dear Doctor,
I had a breast enlargement. I am really disappointed and am crying all the time. There is a vallecula on one of my breasts. The surgeon placed the implant under the glandula even though we agreed on dual. My breasts are just hanging down. I hate that I always have to wear my bra. I can't sleep like this, I can't live like this. The size of my breasts are what they used to be when I was wearing a push-up bra. Back then it was much better because I could just take the bra off and be comfortable. Now this is impossible and my breasts are really uncomfortable, tight. I hate these, I want my old breasts back. Is there any way of re-doing this? What would my breasts look like then? I made the biggest mistake of my life, I can't live like this anymore. The surgeon is only willing to see me next year, I think he does not want to deal with my issues. I can't live with these breasts. They are strange, I want the implants out. I am thinking about suicide because I just can't cope with what I have done to my breasts. They weren’t ugly just small and they were the size of my current breasts when wearing a push-up bra. It was much better like that. It was much more comfortable – if I wanted to look like I had bigger breasts, I just put on a push-up bra. I can't even buy a decent bra now, just those silly sport bras which hide the size of my breasts anyway so no-one can actually see how big they are. I do not know what to do, I can't go on like this, I want to kill myself. I know others are happy with their new breasts but I feel like my life has ended only after 2 months of having these new breasts. My breasts are really hanging down... I know others complain about the contrary – well, good for them! I am really angry at whoever came up with the implant-idea, it drives people into this silliness. You hear it from everywhere, from the TV, magazines, etc. Like this was such a cool thing. Could I get the implants removed after 2 months? What will my breasts look like after taking the 360 cc nagor out? How do they remove them? I do not know if I will like the look of my breasts when they take the implants out, maybe the look of that will drive me to suicide. I can't take this anymore, I was such a fool and no-one warned me of the consequences. :(

Dear Dr. Pataki,
About 4 months ago I had a breast augmentation. After the implant, a piece of the skin tissue on my chest stood out a little. The surgeon said that the skin will adapt to the new size of my breasts and will smoothen. Unfortunately, this has not been my experience. Whenever I have a bra on, or I am leaning forward or I am lying on my side, when my chest and breasts are elevated, there is no line in between the breasts. The surgeon says that there is still hope that the skin will be firmer and we should wait until a year passes post surgery, but I would like to ask for a second opinion, because I haven't met anyone who had a similar skin issue after 4 months post surgery. Is there any way of helping this process? If the skin remains the same, is there any procedure that could help the situation? (I am 26 with no kids, I have an average-size implant under the glandula).
Thank you for your help in advance!

Dear Doctor,
Unfortunately there is not much that can be done with my body shape. I have tried dieting, liposuction, the skin under my bottom is still everything but firm. Unfortunately I have the same problem with my whole body. I am working out but this does not seem to help the situation. That is why I have been thinking about plastic surgery on my thighs. My bottom is hanging down like other people's breasts. If I pull up the skin on it, it looks alright. Is there any available surgical procedure for this? Would the scar be very long and visible? Are there similar procedures for this like for breasts (e.g. the stitches are inside)?
Thank you!

Dear Dr. Pataki,
Concerning breast augmentation, what does it mean to say that something depends on the projection? If it was extra high up, would that make it bigger in length? I don't really have breasts on the upper part therefore that's what I would like to get corrected. I heard that having the breasts very high up isn't very nice because it makes the breasts look like long, Brazilian ones. What does this mean? I do not understand. There is no higher option than the 'extra high' – is that correct? Would that boost the breast size at all? I've measured them as you have suggested but with 880cc it appears to be 10 cm more, which is too much, I think. But with this material, it is not perfect, maybe that is why it is only 800.

Dear Dr. Pataki,
When I gave birth to my baby I was 80 kg and beforehand I was only 47kg. Currently, I am 54 kg and my height is 159 cm. My skin has become very loose on my abdomen and I might have hernia. I am not sure if there is a way of surgical correction?. Would my skin become like it used to be? Could the loose skin and fat be removed? I have a little abdominal apron, I had a Caesarian section. Currently I look like I was 5 months pregnant. I gave birth to my baby a year ago and I discussed my abdomen with my doctor on the 6-week check up and he said that my tummy was big because it was filled with air. Unfortunately, my breasts have changed a great deal after my pregnancy; they feel like empty bags now.
With many thanks,

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I had a breast surgery eight weeks ago – a corrective surgery after breast tumour with implants. My left breast is still 1,5 – 2 cm higher than the other, the skin on it is visibly brighter, and the shape of it is rounder as well. (I hadn’t got any glandula on this side, because it had to be removed two years ago, I only had my aerola.)

I would like to know whether it is possible that all these might change two months after the surgery? Will my breasts look alike to a certain degree?

Dear Dr Pataki,

About six months ago I found a lump in my breast which was proven to be a fibroadenoma on biopsy. Recently, I have decided to get this removed and so my surgeon sent me to have an ultrasound which to my biggest surprise showed that there was nothing there! I know I should be happy but I can’t help but wonder where this lump disappeared to (it was 8 mm in size).

If it was a cyst, it might have disappeared because of the biopsy. But then how is it possible that the histology showed a fibroadenoma? If it really was that and it disappeared due to the needle sting while biopsying it - wouldn’t that cause trouble? I feel that somebody somewhere must have made a mistake. What shall I do? My surgeon is speechless, he doesn’t know either how this could have happened. This certainly doesn’t put me at ease especially as I still experience pain in my breast.

Thank you in advance!

Dear Doctor,

I have nursed three children and my problem is that my breasts have almost completely disappeared. It is true, that they weren’t big either before the lactation. I hate my body, I can’t even exist without a bra. I put at least four sponges into it to make it seem as if I had breasts. I heard that if a psychiatrist diagnoses that this problem makes me mentally ill, then the breast augmentation could be supported via national health insurance. Please give me some information about my opportunities in this issue.

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I had breast augmentation three months ago. My right breast hurts since about two weeks, when I am lying in a half-sitting or in a horizontal position for some time, or am turning to one side, or am getting out of bed. The pain disappears if I go hither and thither or do my business. It is also better when I am massaging it. The outer side of my breast is sensitive as well. Otherwise there is no visible defomations, the shape is really nice. What can be the problem?

Dear Doctor,

A 4*4 cm wide area can be found in the outer-lower part of my left breast, which is filled with fluid. It was caused by an awkward movement three weeks ago. There is a haematoma on the left side, but fortunately other abnormal tissues cannot be seen. Pathologic tissues cannot be detected in the axillas. I have implants in both of my breasts (under the muscle). My left breast has enlarged, but the implant hasn’t got hurt. I would like to ask when the haematoma will absorb? Will the tumescence be gone?

Dear Dr. Pataki,

First and foremost I would like to say thank you for your time.
I am 164 cm tall and weighed 100 kg when I started dieting. Currently I am 75kg. My goal is to reach 65kg. Would that qualify me for abdominoplasty supported via national insurance?

I delivered twins 13 years ago and another girl 6 years ago with Caesarean section. Would this be contraindicative for abdominoplasty? Could you tell me how long the waiting list is and what the application process is?

One final question; is it possible to have breast augmentation supported via national insurance? I think a breast lift would suffice but of course would need a consultation with a surgeon first. I was breastfeeding for a long time thus the change in the appearance of my breasts – this really disturbs me now.

Thank you for your answer in advance.

Dear Dr. Pataki,

I am 38 years old and the problem that I have inverted nipples has been on my mind since I had been a high school student. I am shy because of this, I really do not like to get undressed in front of people (e.g. when we are sunbathing). I was always afraid in my partnerships what my partner will say if he notices the abnormality. Usually it hasn’t disturbed them, this is me who feel truly embarrassed because of the problem. According to my gynecologyst I shouldn’t be concerned with the issue, he says that about 10% of women are living with such problem. I would like to ask whether there are any possibilities for making the nipples emerging? Do I really have to live with them?

Thank you for your help!
