Art

Dr. Hidalgo is a practicing artist and believes it to be vital for sharpening aesthetic vision.

“Art enhances my perception of nuances in shape and form.  This is critical to achieving optimal results in surgery, whether it is a facelift, a breast reduction, or a rhinoplasty. There is no better method for training and refining your eye than to be continually engaged as a visual artist.”

Dr. Hidalgo works in charcoal for his large scale drawings. Each one takes over a year to complete.  Below are a few examples.

Reverse abdominoplasty is appealing but only applys to those who have all of the following:

1. Loose skin in the middle
2. A perfect lower abdomen
3. Tight muscles
4. Breasts that will hide the scars or existing surgical scars in the breast crease

 Unlike traditional abdominoplasty, done for a different purpose, there is almost no swelling, little discomfort (no muscle work), and the scars are hidden. As indicated above though, true candidates for this procedure are uncommon. 

For the surgeons: this procedure is conceptually simple but challenging to execute. Enough skin has to be removed (4 cm or so) to get the job done yet avoid midline bunching. The inframammary crease has to be re-established and this is most effectively done sitting up, a tedious process!

Breast feeding results in atrophy of the gland, often manifesting as a deflated appearance. In these cases, the most common type, breast implants alone will re-establish pre-pregnancy aesthetics by simply replacing lost volume. More complex cases, like this one, also require removal of stretched skin to provide a simultaneous lift. When skin is removed it only takes a small implant to restore upper breast fullness. 

For the surgeons: Since implant size is small in these cases it typically represents less than 40% of total breast volume. Therefore the “feel” advantage of silicone implants typically becomes moot. Saline implants in this  setting are reliably stable for 20 years or more and are therefore preferred (125cc saline implants in this case).
