    By Dr. Anthony Youn Five years ago I set out to write the definitive book about becoming a plastic surgeon – true, unadulterated, unfiltered, behind the scenes, warts and all.  I’m gratified by what readers and reviewers have said so far.  They’ve called it “disarming,” “fast-paced,” “hilarious,” and “touching.”  According to Publisher’s Weekly: Youn’s description of [...]

    by Dr. August Acetta If you are one of those women who wish they could have a smaller butt, bigger boobs and more cleavage, you just got lucky! While breast augmentation continues to top the list of most desirable cosmetic surgery procedures, it doesn’t always give women what they really want – more cleavage! A [...]

    It’s only natural that some women should want bigger breasts – even if the way to get bigger breasts is usually unnatural. The good news is that unnatural is still safe and affordable for most women. Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in North America, with nearly 300,000 operations performed in 2010. [...]

    Vampires are hot right now. Well, technically, they’re always cold, since they’re dead and they never go out in the sun, but in the sense that ‘hot’ means ‘popular,’ vampires are it. What does that have to do with plastic surgery? It depends. If you’re really REALLY into vampires, maybe you’ve stopped exposing your skin [...]

    Bullying has been in the news a lot lately because of some tragic consequences and the relatively new dimension of cyber-bullying. But the truth is, there have always been bullies, and the persecuted have always sought refuge by trying to change their appearance. Buying clothes from more expensive retailers, showering more often, dyeing your hair, [...]

    You’ve probably heard the painfully joyous laughter of a Tickle Me Elmo doll in action. Yes, even when he’s not being tickled, Elmo is really, really relentlessly happy, and that’s great. But you know what’s not great? That thigh weight you just can’t seem to shake since you had your second Elmo-loving baby. But that’s [...]

    I’m pretty much broke. Yeah, it’s kind of because of the economy, and it’s kind of because I’m a writer and we’re traditionally some of the brokest people in the world. I recently had someone tell me that I could make more money panhandling. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m not ruling it out [...]

    Hot moms are in these days. Okay, maybe hot moms have always been in.

    Everyone has seen a photo at some point: a botched facelift, uneven breast implants, lips the size and shape of bratwurst. Plastic surgery can certainly go awry if done improperly, but thank goodness, it’s trending towards a more natural look. That’s why new fillers like NOVABEL and Macrolane are gaining popularity in Europe and the [...]

    Cankle is an ugly word. There’s no denying. So it makes sense that it refers to one of the most unfortunate characteristics a woman’s leg can possess: fat ankles. There’s nothing less sexy than a leg that, instead of tapering into a slender ankle, abruptly ends at a foot, with no definition whatsoever. But here’s [...]

    Computer face. The name sounds like some high-tech, futuristic robot visage. Or a stupid taunt bullies throw at gaming nerds. But in fact, the term refers to a relatively new phenomenon among women (and men) who spend long hours every day at their computers.  Because of the downward angle of the jawline and the squinting [...]

    In what has become a billion dollar industry, balding, receding or highly placed hairlines in women are making them desperately search for a “miracle cure” to reduce their high hairlines.

    Does that older lady who lives down the street suddenly show up at a party with a face that looks too good (or too bad) to be true? Did your cousin go from straight A’s to C’s (we’re talking cup size, here) without gaining any weight? There are plenty of signs that someone you know [...]

    There’s no denying that big boobs are a big thing. And when women aren’t naturally endowed, it’s only natural that they seek surgical assistance. Sometimes, a boob job is the only way for women to achieve the bosom they desire. The bosom that will make them feel more desired. So it’s no surprise that breast [...]

    What can you say about man-boobs? On one hand, you’ve got boobs. Everybody likes boobs, right? And big ones are especially popular. But when you add ‘man’ to the boob equation, your mental image suddenly changes from sensual to, “Um, ew.” How strange that one of the most coveted features of the female form is [...]

    Miley Cyrus is definitely proving to the world that she’s growing up. And she says she’s doing it without plastic surgery.

    You’ve heard “The Thong Song.” You’ve gotten your groove on to “Baby Got Back.” And maybe, looking back, you’ve considered that your own derriere is less luscious than you’d like.

    It’s hard to come by a respectable solution for hair loss. Toupees and hair transplants alike are often obvious, and this puts balding people in a tough spot. Going bald prematurely is considered a social disadvantage, but so is wearing a ‘piece’ or having a bad hair transplant. From George’s terrible toupee in Seinfeld to [...]

    If you’ve been too shy to wear shorts for the summer weather because of unsightly varicose veins, you may have better luck next year.

    Maybe you’re not overweight. You eat healthy, you’re in shape, and you don’t have love handles spilling out over your size 2 jeans. So why would you dread getting dressed? Because when you snap on your bra, all of a sudden there are two unsightly rolls of flab above and below that blasted elastic band. [...]

    A puffy pout is a symbol of female sensuality, and the quest for long-lasting full lips is ongoing. Fillers are usually a temporary solution, and a potential new lip augmentation alternative with more permanent results has emerged. The plastic surgery procedure uses grafts of the sterrnocleidomastoid, or SCM, neck muscles and the overlying skin and [...]

    If someone told you that your own blood could heal and rejuvenate your aging skin, you might think it sounded like something out of X-Men.

    By: Shervin Naderi, MD, FACS Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Undergoing elective plastic surgery can be a physically and mentally challenging ordeal.

    Liposuction can be a scary word, even for veterans of cosmetic improvement through plastic surgery. Traditional liposuction comes with a number of negative connotations, including painful bruising, scars, ripping and tearing, and folds of loose skin post-op. New breakthroughs in the world of lipo are revolutionizing the procedure. One of these innovative technologies is Body [...]

    Everyone is familiar with certain female body stereotypes: the classic hourglass figure, the bottom-heavy pear, the stick-thin runway model, the built-but-butch athletic girl. Men (and other women) have a tendency to mass-classify the female figure into categories that don’t necessarily exclusively apply to any individual woman. Take the female athlete, for instance. Just because a [...]

    By Dr. David Shafer The new uses for facial fillers continue to expand as does their popularity as an alternative to surgical facelifts as well as a way to maintain the results of surgery.

    By Lois W. Stern, Editor-at-Large MakeMeHeal.com A 5% excise tax on plastic surgery included in the Senate’s health care reform bill? You must be kidding!
