The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Recent statistics released by The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery show that in 2011 the 3 most commonly performed facial procedures were rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and Botox Cosmetic. And it is no surprise to me that this should be the case.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most transformational procedures that I do. It can make someone who has been unattractive their whole life more appealing, and it can even make a person look younger by elevating their tip. Eyelid surgery is relatively easy to perform with minimal downtime and does wonders for making someone look more relaxed, less “burned-out” and even younger. Finally, Botox Cosmetic is one of the “lunchtime” procedures, which is easy and quick to perform, relatively inexpensive and produces dramatic results in the right patient. In addition to smoothing out wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, it can raise downturned corners of the mouth and lessen the prominence of early neck bands.

Facial Surgery Article in Genlux Magazine

I was pleased to see an article by me, that appears on page 120, of the recently published Fall Fashion 2011 issue of Genlux magazine.  It is somewhat brief, but I discuss why nasal surgery is different and more technically challenging than other types of facial surgery. I will be posting this article in the near future.

Celebrity Plastic Surgery

This entry to my blog is more of a public service or “wake-up call” than informational, in an academic sense. I hear so many patients refer to doctors, who have operated on entertainers, as being the ultimate surgeons for that particular procedure. One has only to look at some of the celebrity plastic surgery websites or rating sites, such as RATEMDS.COM, to see that this is pure folly. While most of us, especially in Beverly Hills, have operated on TV, movie, musical and sports personalities, it has always been my understanding and hope that they found me by doing their “due diligence”. Having said that, it is unfortunate that many in the public don’t, but follow in lockstep like lemmings to an unfavorable result.
