I have developed hard breasts after 15 years of wearing quality implants. I must have developed capsular contracture with outhinning of the tissues. Is it more expensive to operate me like others? What may I expect. What operation do you think must be performed on me, based on the pictures I sent.
Thank you, Kate

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.

Dear Dr. Pataki,
I am a 25 year-old lady. In the course of the past 1.5 years I've lost a lot of weight and the shape of my breasts changed. They don't look too bad, still their appearance really bother me. My question would be whether it is possible to have a breast-lift procedure without general anaeshetics and perform it with local anaesthetics? I am scared of general anaesthesia and therefore would also like to know the side-effects please.
Thank you in advance.

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!

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 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,

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.
