Practice Overview

Factors such as aging, facial expressions, and genetics can lead to thin lips or loss of volume. While makeup can temporarily enhance appearance, lip injections provide longer-lasting volume and definition for a fuller, more youthful look.
To help you achieve the best results, Dr. Ali will consider your unique physical proportions, aesthetic goals, and lifestyle in determining the right implant size and profile for you. During your consultation with Dr. Ali, you will have the opportunity to try on implants of varying sizes to help you visualize and choose the look you desire.
While breast augmentation increases the volume and projection of breasts, it does not significantly lift breasts that are sagging. For that reason, many women who desire added volume and correction of drooping breasts choose to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift procedure.

Surgical Technique

During the 1-hour augmentation procedure, which is performed under general anesthesia, Dr. Ali places the breast implants either above or below the chest muscle through approximately 3/4 inch incisions that are made in the breast crease or the areola edge. Silicone implants are pre-filled with a silicone material that is similar in texture to breast tissue, while the saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater to the size you desire after they have been placed in the breast. The incisions will be closed with dissolvable sutures that do not have to be removed because of their placement under the skin, and the incision is covered with a steri-strip for 2 weeks.

Silicone Implants?

Breast augmentation creates fuller breasts through the placement of either silicone or saline-filled implants. Each type of implant has distinct advantages to consider when making your choice. Many women and physicians prefer silicone implants because the silicone gel inside their solid silicone rubber outer shell closely mimics the texture of natural breast tissue, leading to a more natural feel and appearance. The FDA recommends that women with silicone implants undergo an MRI every other year after the third year to detect any potential leaks.

This site provides details about implant options, frequently asked questions, and information on safety, risks, and benefits.

Saline Implants?

Saline implants also have a solid silicone rubber shell, but they are filled with sterile saline water after being implanted into the breast. If a saline implant leaks, it is usually immediately noticeable because the implant deflates. In contrast, silicone ruptures are less apparent, as the silicone gel leaks slowly into surrounding tissues, causing minimal changes in the breast's appearance.

Percutaneous Implant Deflation

Percutaneous implant deflation involves extracting the saline solution from the implants, allowing the skin tissue to shrink and the breast pocket to strengthen over approximately four weeks. During this period, you and Dr. Ali will review your aesthetic goals and prepare for the removal of the saline bag and the placement of new implants. This technique benefits patients seeking to achieve one or more of the following: changing implant size, switching to silicone, correcting lateral displacement of the breasts when lying down, or addressing borderline lift requirements.
Deflation is performed comfortably in our office. A small amount of lidocaine is injected at the breast crease for numbing, followed by the insertion of a small catheter to remove the saline from the implant. Afterward, a Band-Aid is applied, and you will need to wear a sports bra for the next few weeks to aid in tissue tightening. Patients can go home immediately after the procedure and resume normal activities the same day.

Why Dr. Ali

As a pioneer in the field of plastic surgery with triple board certification, Dr. Ali is renowned nationwide for his groundbreaking advancements in breast enhancement, facial rejuvenation, and body contouring techniques. His training under the inventors of breast implants equipped him with unique insights into managing the complexities of breast augmentation surgery.

Working alongside his colleagues at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Montreal, Quebec, Dr. Ali spearheaded the development of an innovative technique to enhance the outcomes and safety of combining breast augmentation with breast lift surgery.
To address shoulder grooves caused by tight bra straps, a common concern among women with larger breasts, Dr. Ali introduced a fat grafting technique to smooth out these indentations, allowing for more confident wearing of strapless dresses, tops, and swimsuits. The Ideal Breast Implant is currently undergoing clinical trials to seek approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration. This innovative implant combines the best features of saline and silicone implants, featuring nested implant shells filled with saline to achieve a natural look and feel similar to silicone implants. Dr. Ali was selected as one of a prestigious group of surgeons to participate in these trials due to his extensive experience and surgical expertise.

Candidates for 
breast fat grafting

Women who are great candidates for breast fat grafting are those who:
  • Only want to moderately increase their breast size (one cup or less)
  • Have a slightly “scooped out” appearance to the upper breast 
  • Have enough body fat in another area to use
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are in general good health

Surgical Technique

In most cases, an incision is made near the pubic hairline, stretching from hip bone to hip bone. For optimal concealment, this incision is placed beneath the bikini line, ensuring that the resulting scar is well-hidden by swimwear and undergarments. The weakened underlying muscles are repaired and tightened with persistent sutures, and excess skin is removed. A second incision is often made around the navel to tighten loose skin above it, and the navel is then repositioned through a hole made in the newly firm skin. Incisions are closed with stitches that are removed 7-10 days later. A tummy tuck procedure generally lasts 2-5 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
Dr. Ali has pioneered two advances in the abdominoplasty procedure to make recovery both safer and more comfortable for his patients. The first is Exparel, a medication applied to the closure site while patients are under anesthesia, which provides pain control for 72 hours after surgery. Studies have shown that patients who received Exparel take fewer pain relievers and regain their range of motion sooner, leading to a quicker recovery. Patients used to compare the discomfort of tummy tuck surgery to a C-section, but this advancement in pain management makes for a much speedier recovery. As one of the pioneer users, Dr. Ali will be giving the landmark presentation on Exparel in the spring of 2013 at the ASAPS convention.
The second innovation for the tummy tuck makes recovery more convenient by eliminating the external drain typically attached to patients after surgery. Dr. Ali achieves this by using progressive tension sutures, a surgical technique that provides complete closure of internal tissue layers. This method has proven to reduce pain and recovery time. By reducing irritation and inflammation, this innovative technique eliminates fluid drainage and the need for an external drain.
  • Dr. Ali gives amazing results! This is my second procedure with him. I recently got a breast augmentation. They are absolutely perfect and I couldn’t be happier. He has truly helped me achieve the body I want . Very natural. Thank you so much Dr. Ali !

What happens during the procedure?

The breast fat grafting procedure begins with liposuction, which can be performed with the patient either under general or local anesthesia. Tiny incisions will be made near the area where fat is to be taken. Through these small incisions, the doctor will insert a cannula (a long, hollow tube) to loosen the fat and suction it out of the body so that it can be processed and used to volumize the breasts.
Once if the fat is purified, it’s placed within a syringe to be injected to the breasts, typically increasing them by one cup size. For those considering breast fat grafting, it’s important to be aware that you may need multiple sessions to achieve the results you want. This is because with any type of fat grafting, some of the fat may not survive in its new location. Usually about 50% to 70% of the fat survives.

Recovery

The majority of breast fat grafting patients only require 1 to 3 days of recovery time. You may need to wear a compression garment for approximately one week (this will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Ali). You may experience swelling and/or tenderness for a few weeks. Early results will be immediately apparent, with final results visible at 5 to 6 months.

FAQ

Tumescent Lipo?
Skin Elasticity?
Persistent Results?

Tumescent Lipo?

In tumescent liposuction, a solution infused with anesthetic and medications is injected into the targeted areas. This causes the fat to swell, facilitating easier sculpting to achieve desired contours. The solution also reduces blood flow, minimizing bleeding and bruising during the procedure. Patients benefit from the pain-relieving effects of the anesthetic in the solution, ensuring a more comfortable recovery period within the first 18-24 hours following their procedure.

Skin Elasticity?

Because liposuction solely targets fat removal, it does not address excess skin. Patients with good skin elasticity typically achieve optimal results. However, if skin laxity or sagging is present, a lift surgery may be recommended in conjunction with liposuction for optimal outcomes.

Persistent Results?

Although liposuction permanently removes fat cells from targeted areas, maintaining a healthy and stable weight through balanced diet and regular exercise is crucial post-surgery. If patients do not adhere to these lifestyle practices, remaining fat cells can enlarge, potentially leading to weight gain over time.
