    In the last year, the number of 75 to 80- year-old individuals who have come to my office for cosmetic procedures has increased significantly.

Each one has said they don’t feel their age and they want their appearance to reflect how they feel. 

  • Breaking Down Cosmetic Procedures for Your Kids

    This summer, I had Botox and fillers done so subtly that my daughter noticed from a mile away. Fine, it wasn’t an actual mile, but it was about the length of a baseball field.

    The decision to undergo any sort of cosmetic procedure, especially a facelift, is very personal and not to be taken lightly. You've got to make sure you're in the right hands and then consider the financial commitment, your expectations, any potential pain or discomfort and of course recovery/downtime.

    Have you ever had the not-so-pleasant experience of a co-worker, a decade your senior, assuming you were their peer based on your appearance and sadly, not your wisdom?  

  • Should You Let Your Teen Undergo Plastic Surgery?

    At 41 years-old, I have learned that beauty is truly skin deep, and yet just when I think I've finally allowed that statement to fully integrate into my overall consciousness, an off-hand comment hurled my way can revert me back to that 16 year-old insecure teen who desperately wanted a nose job.

  • Get the 411 on the Expiration Dates of Cosmetic Surgery Results

    I have a tendency to get nervous during virtually any medical procedure, and one of the ways I calm myself down is by talking… a lot. So, when I was recently getting my annual mammogram, I was yammering away with the technician, who was squashing my breast like a pancake in a vise-like contraption to get a decent picture of what was going on in there. Somehow, talking makes me feel less uncomfortable – or at least mentally anyway.
