  • The Hairy Truth About Female Hair Loss

    By: Genevieve Miller 

    While all of us lose an average of 50 to 100 hairs a day, sometimes we lose far more - to the point where it becomes painfully noticeable. To make matters worse, there is a veritable laundry list of factors that might be the cause; everything from certain over-the-counter drugs to stress to hormones to vitamin deficiencies and certain diseases and conditions. Some are easily reversed while others are not, which is why additional intervention may be necessary.  

  • You Might Be Paying More for Weekend Plastic Surgery

    Scheduling plastic surgery for the weekend may be more convenient for work schedules, family life, and even finding helpers to drive you to and from the procedure— but it may cost you a pretty penny for the added convenience. 

  • Is Getting Plastic Surgery to Disguise One’s Ethnicity Really a Thing in 2016?

    Many years ago when my maternal grandmother arrived in the United States from Israel, I imagine she experienced a myriad of issues acclimating to her new surroundings and immersing herself in a culture that was quite literally a world apart from her own. I imagine this to be true due to the persistent stories handed down in our family like great folklore; about her longing from the time she was little to transform her Semitic features. And, once she was old enough, my grandmother did undergo a rhinoplasty to correct her ethnic nose into a more aesthetically pleasing Romanesque one. 

  • Everyone is Getting Nipped, Tucked or Injected

    If more than $13.5 billion seems like a huge amount of dough for plastic surgery and the varied aesthetic procedures that are offered by plastic surgeons, good— it should, because it’s the highest number ever reported by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). 

  • New Year, New You:  Popular Cosmetic Procedures that will Refresh and Renew in 2016

    Believe it or not, I was the ripe old age of 40 when I got my very first-ever pedicure. When I told several people this fact, they looked at me incredulously as if I had spent the past 20-something years living under a rock. I mean, how could I call myself a modern woman and not be a devotee of such a popular pampering service?! Well I can assure you now that I've had a pedicure, which unlike the manicures I've gotten has lasted and not chipped for a solid month I am hooked. 

  • Breaking Down the Subliminal Beauty Theory

    Isn’t the best compliment we could give a Hollywood starlet, a friend or a relative, “I think she’s had work done, but I’m just not sure?” That’s the crux of the ‘subliminal beauty theory’, and what’s difficult about it is that it completely contradicts what plastic surgeons are taught. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Dayan says that defining beauty with preconceived dimensions and measurements thrives in the face of the formula for successful cosmetic surgery outcomes.  

  • Is There Such a Thing as Seasonal Surgery?

    Last summer, a good friend of mine underwent a medium chemical peel, also known as TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peel, and spent the majority of the season indoors. While the rest of us were enjoying the beach, swim club and tennis courts she was following her doctor's orders of strict sun avoidance and ended up spending too much time on her computer and catching up on Netflix's latest offerings. Seems like it was poor planning to me. 

  • Are Virtual Consultations The Next Big Thing in Plastic Surgery?

    Not long ago, traveling for aesthetic plastic surgery looked something like heading to Guatemala for a cheaper facelift, or, on the other extreme, traveling to New York from a small town because you had the means, but not a qualified local surgeon in close proximity to your home base.  

    Nowadays, seeking the counsel of a plastic surgeon beyond your zip code is not relegated to the rich or financially strapped. The Internet has opened up exposure to businesses in a way that the local Yellow Pages never could. We can use all things digital to seek out world-renowned experts.
