Destroying wrinkles with the CO2 laser

10/20/2018
More
The carbon dioxide laser has been used to improve appearance for two decades. Today, we use this laser in a very sophisticated way - instead of vaporizing tissue and creating a big wound, we drill little holes in the skin and allow healing between the holes. This makes the entire procedure and the recovery less painful. Tonight, I discussed new techniques in lasering. We also discussed how to prevent the complication of bleeding after facelifting, Finally, a breast surgeon from RJW Barnabus...

Fixing deformed earlobes

9/29/2018
More
Have you seen those "gauges" that are stretching teen's earlobes? I had a mother bring her daughter in "by the ear" to have hers fixed. These are difficult problems because the gauges stretch the lobes and destroy tissue. I grew more earlobe skin by injecting wrinkle filler. After 3 months, I was able to repair the earlobe. Listen in to this story, as well as my approach to wrinkle filler in the face. I also had Dr. Baione from the University Orthopedic Group in Somerset, NJ discuss a new...

There's a new Botox headed your way

9/22/2018
More
Botox is the most popular procedure in all of plastic surgery. The Botox company (Allergan) has purchased another company that makes a short acting Botox. Their strategy is to use this drug as a "starter Botox" for people who are unsure whether they want a 4 month product. I'm not sure if this is a good medical strategy, but I defer to Allergan for the business plan. We also discussed

How gummy bear implants and galaflex make complex breast augmentations simpler

8/11/2018
More
Breast augmentations are the most common cosmetic surgical procedure. The new gummy bear (form stable) implants have revolutionized these operations. But sometimes implants droop below the breast crease and sometimes they drift over to the side of the chest wall. These reoperative cases can be very difficult. But with the textured form stable implant and the new galaflex mesh, these can be readily handled. Tonight we discussed this, as well as the choice of implant and why MRIs are important...

The FDA warns against vaginal rejuvenation

8/4/2018
More
I hate to say "I told you so" but...I told you so. Over a year ago, I discussed how plastic surgeons were being enticed to perform vaginal rejuvenative procedures with lasers or radiofrequency devices. I stated publicly that the average plastic surgeon had no business performing these procedures. This should be the province of the gynecologist. It turns out that NO ONE should be doing these procedures because the FDA has not approved any device for this purpose. And this week, the FDA warned...

Breasts - Little, Big, and Droopy

7/28/2018
More
I rarely meet a woman who is happy with their breasts. Most women think their breasts are either too small, too large, or droopy. Fortunately, we have outpatient procedures that can correct each of these issues. Tonight we discussed these. We also discussed why I created a bar soap, as opposed to a liquid soap. We also discussed rhinoplasty surgery to reshape noses, blepharoplasty for eyelid rejuvenation, and chemical peels and lasers. What a show!

Why the Brazilian Butt Lift is the deadliest procedure in plastic surgery

7/14/2018
More
Plastic surgeons have sent out a warning that the chance of dying with the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is 1 in 3000. You may not think that is high, but it is the most dangerous procedure in plastic surgery. In the BBL, many ounces of fat are injected into the buttocks to create a chubby buttock. (Interestingly, even 10 years ago, I was asked to REMOVE fat from the buttocks via liposuction....) Fat can enter the veins and travel through the heart into the lungs. The advisory did not tell...

The no pignose rhinoplasty

7/7/2018
More
Nasal reshaping surgery is my favorite surgical procedure. That's because it is both the most difficult cosmetic procedure and also the most creative procedure. No two noses are alike and no two procedures are identical. On tonight's show we discussed rhinoplasty. We also spoke about some 20 something called for making cosmetic surgery ILLEGAL. Not kidding, she proposed fines for having cosmetic surgery, because she believes we should age gracefully. You can only imagine what I had to say...

Aging skin can be rejuvenated with Botox, Fillers, Ulthera, surgery, Peels, and lasers. Tonight, we discussed how Intense Pulsed Light, and the Erbium and CO2 lasers can be used to improve your appearance. And, I found the dumbest procedure of 2018 - cutting the nerves to the leg muscles to make the calf slimmer! So what if you won't be able to run or dance - your legs will look better! This procedure is not one that I recommend!

We discuss this and other new Ulthera studies that demonstrate superior results when Ulthera is combined with wrinkles fillers.

Professionalism in the OR - the case of the twerking doctor

6/9/2018
More
The Atlanta dermatologist who danced and sang in the OR before she lost her license illustrates how some doctors simply do not understand the gravity of what we are doing. Surgeons are snapchatting int he OR, they are YouTubing, and they are simply not taking our profession seriously. It is a testimony to the resilience of human physiology that more people are not seriously injured by these doctors. Georgia finally took a stand against her. We discuss this case. We also discussed the utility...

We also spoke about lasers for port wine stains and facial capillaries. We also discussed the new craze of charcoal in skin care. Turns out that it does nothing for your skin.

Lasers Make You Prettier

Lasers are not new - I've been using them since 1981 - when I was an intern at Harvard Medical School. They keep getting better, faster, and smaller. I now use lasers to rejuvenate faces, reduce wrinkles, remove hair, erase tattoos, control acne, and reduce the visibility of red marks. On tonight's show, we discussed how I use lasers in my practice.
