What your doctor does the night before your surgery!

second stage of surgery

It’s the day of your big surgery. You’re nervous but you figure you’re in good hands, right? Did you ever consider how your doctor’s personal life may affect your surgery?

The secret hiding place of fat: thighs

Every time I perform a Brazilian Butt Lift, I’m always surprised that even in the thinnest of patients, they still have fat hiding in their inner thighs! I’m not suggesting everyone needs liposuction to their inner thighs. However, if you’re considering buttock augmentation but worried you may not have enough fat, you actually might.   […]

Considering Botox or fillers to treat those facial lines? Aside from deciding what area to treat, you should also consider who will treat you – nurse injectors or physician injectors.   While some of the legalities vary from state to state, it is totally legal for nurse injectors to treat your facial wrinkles with Botox, […]

Botox treatment for your headache

I just had a patient tell me she usually doesn’t get headaches, until recently. She realized that the last time she got a headache coincided with her neurotoxin (Botox) wearing off. She thought it was just a coincidence that her stress headache came on a few months after her previous Botox treatment. Based on that […]

Youthanizing of the hands…or anti-aging of the hands!
