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 Robert Rey (from "Dr 90210)
Dr Stuart Linder (from MTV's "I Want a Famous Face")
Spalding Plastic Surgery Center (Dr Paul Nassif & Dr David Amron) Doctors
