Blindness with Wrinkle Filler - a warning.

1/13/2019
More
Tonight, my guest was Dr. Robert Grant, chief of plastic surgery at both Columbia and Cornell. We spoke about a new study that documented just how easy it is to cause blindness when wrinkle filler is injected in the upper portion of the face. This is particularly important since States are now allowing non physicians such as dentists and nurses, to inject filler. Let the buyer beware. We also spoke about the latest developments in facelift surgery - short scar lifts were proven to be as...

How I do a tummy tuck

130,000 people a year have tummy tucks in the USA. The procedure returns tummies to the pre-pregnancy appearance. The rectus muscles are brought together, strengthening them. Excess skin and fat are removed, improving both the appearance and function of the belly. Tummy tucks are now performed as outpatient procedures and are often combined with liposuction of the flanks. On tonight's show, we discussed the procedure and the risks and benefits of tummy tucks.

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

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

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

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

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...
