"Keyhole" Procedures

We've been reading more and more lately about plastic surgery procedures being done trough an incision so small, its a called "keyhole". Plastic surgeons use an endoscope to go inside the patient and perform the procedure.

One of the most popular keyhold surgery is breast augmentation throught the belly button. The same surgery that brought fame to Dr. Robert Rey, from Dr 90210. (You can read more about him here: iEnhance.com & Dr. Robert Rey)

Other doctors are starting to really pay attention to this new trend and patients are coming asking for it as well, so here's a new article written about this very interesting new technique!

The Magic of the Thread Lift

The demand for quick, “lunchtime” cosmetic procedures continues unabated; The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported almost seven million minimally invasive procedures in 2004, a 43 percent rise over 2003!!!

An F.D.A.- approved thread lift is one of the very latest developments; it’s a partial facelift done without incisions, general anesthesia, stitches or a long recovery time. The F.D.A.-approved Contour Thread Lift is currently used by about 285 U.S. surgeons, according to the manufacturer.

It's a very very interesting new procedure and tons of people are going and getting it. It's amazing how little scars are left and the results at the end!

Surgeon Operates on Himself???

Yes, it's true, kinda, at least.

Dr. Robert Ersek, from Austin, Texas, performed liposuction on himself a few months ago. I guess a reason behind this move, was his research on stem cells, on storing and studying adult stem cells.

So he went ahead, called up on some of his friends, the media and assistants and performed liposuction on himself, just a few spots here and there, nothing too dramatic, it wasn't done with the purpose of losing weight or getting a slim figure, it was him trying to get his own fat cells for the future.

Here's an interview with the doctor, who happens to be very very entertaining and a very smart and professional plastic surgeon in the country. I'm sure you'll enjoy reading about his experience with this surgery, as well as the many other tv show he's been participating on for the last few years.

National Dog Bite Prevention Week

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and other concerned groups have created National Dog Bite Prevention Week, observed from May 15th to the 21st.

It's unbelievable to see some of the images of those children's faces, but it's even more unvelievable to see how well they recover under the care of a dedicated and experienced plastic surgeon.

We all know to be careful with the family pet when children are around and what not, but it only takes a second for something bad to happen.

Here's a link to a full length article about the issue:

Facelift via Needles

Ok, so we found out about this new technique for facelifts, it's via acupuncture. At first I didn't really believe it, how could this ancient treatment help rid faces of wrinkles and horrible frown lines?

But I guess it does work. Hundreds of patients have already done it and the benefits don't just stop at wrinkle removal, I guess it also helps clearing out the skin, increasing blood flow and all kinds of other very healthy things.

Check out this link for more information on this new facial rejuvenation treatment:

Beverly Hills Breast Augmentation

What is it that makes every woman out there looking to have breast augmentation, wanting to have it done in Beverly Hills?

What is it about Beverly Hills:
Is it "Dr 90210" on the E! Channel?
Or maybe "Extreme Makeover" on ABC?
Or maybe hearing about all the Hollywood actresses and their breast augs?

I don't have the answer but I'm sure a lot of the doctors in the area do.

They perform the surgery in sooooo many ways: transumbilical, or under the armpit, or around the areola, or under the breast, anyway possible, with the less scarring and the best positioning of the breast implant.

Here are some links that might be helpful to you, in your search for that perfect Beverly Hills breast augmentation:

Dr Stuart Linder (from MTV's "I Want a Famous Face")
Spalding Plastic Surgery Center (Dr Paul Nassif & Dr David Amron)

I know all those posts have old dates, and that's when I originally wrote them but completely forgot to post them until today, May 6th.


Anyways, I promise I'll be good from now on, and try to post something once a week, k?

Surgeon's Gifts

I really want to share this article with everybody. It was a bit depressing but it was very heart-felt as well.

We started talking with some doctors about how they gave back to their communities and stuff like that, I guess their soft side. A lot of them talked about an organization called Face to Face that is helping battered women around the world gain back their self-steem, move away from their abusive partners and start a whole new live.

Some of the stories I read were just too painful, I couldn't believe somebody could actually do that, but it does happen, and it keeps happening right in our backyards.

It's as shocking and emotional as it could be, to know that cosmetic surgeons around the country are donating their time and effort ot help this women get their lives back its amazing, it makes want to go and thank them, huh?

Anyways, here's the link to the full article:

Women Plastic Surgeons


I was reading through some of the feedback e-mail from our website, and notice a lot of e-mails from women, showing concern about the lack of women plastic surgeons in their area, so I thought I would blog about that today.

More and more women are flocking to plastic surgeons' offices to have some kind of work done. But it's hard to feel comfortable in the hands of men, wondering about a breast augmentation with them, or a breast reduction and just thinking how would they know how it feels, they don't have to deal with that, right?

Well, for that group of women, (and men, I guess...) I suggested to one of our writers to gather some of those surgeons and write an article about them, what they think makes a difference and how they approach this world of surgeons, ruled by men, pretty much.

It's quiet interesting, he intereviewed Dr Mariam Awada in Michigan, and Dr Kimberly Henry in Northern California.
