Why we look at more than just BMI [video]

stage procedures

As more consumers research cosmetic surgery online and watch surgery on social media, there’s one thing they keep hearing. That their plastic surgeon won’t operate on them if their BMI (body mass index) is greater than 30. BMI refers to the “magic number” that takes into account your weight in kilograms and your height in […]

Arm Lift vs Arm Lipo

arm lift

Unhappy with the bat wings on your arms? Sure it’s a terrible description but that’s how patients describe the extra fat and skin on their upper arms. Depending on your situation, arm lipo or an arm lift is the way to go.   What’s the difference between an arm lift and arm lipo? Patients with […]

Reasonable expectations with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting has been a part of my practice for over two years now. At this point, I know it works. It works consistently and we can see a result of some sort 99.9% of the time. The tricky part for a minority of patients is not whether they will see a result…the tricky part is […]

Arm Lift: Before and After Photos and Cost

The arm lift is becoming a very popular procedure according to recent statistics.

Liposuction of the abdomen and flanks

As you can see in this photo to the left, this thin patient was unhappy with his flanks (love handles) and liposuction gave him the results he wanted. Let me emphasize, liposuction is best when it’s a thin […]

Liposuction isn’t always enough

Liposuction is a powerful tool in contouring the body. But in certain situations, it just isn’t enough. As seen in this patient to the left, she underwent liposuction to the neck. Her jawline and neck look great. However, something is missing if only liposuction was performed.   Luckily for this patient, she had a chin […]

Gaining weight after liposuction

We’ve all heard it before – if I get liposuction in one area, will all my fat start accumulating in an area that didn’t receive liposuction?! And the answer is a resounding no. Understanding why this won’t happen requires an understanding of fat and “getting fat.”   Believe it or not, all of the fat […]

The 2015 ESPN Body Issue

If you haven’t seen it yet, you gotta check out the 2015 ESPN Body Issue here. I’ll be honest, apparently I’ve been living under a rock because while I’ve heard of the ESPN Swimsuit issue for years, I’ve never heard of the Body Issue and it’s been coming out annually since 2009.   The athletes’ […]
