It never surprises me when a new ingredient is introduced that supposedly is the "best thing ever" for aging skin.  This year it's snail mucous.  I'm not trying to slime you - this thing is real.  But does it do anything?  You'll have to listen to find out.  And we also spoke about removing all of those "things" that grow on your skin.  Listen here!
The RWJUH Foundation asked me to record a podcast about giving to the hospital. Listen in.  
Tonight, we completed our discussion of the most common plastic surgery procedures.  Breast augmentations, liposuction, eyelid lifts, rhinoplasties, and others are discussed tonight.We also discussed the new botulinum toxin which will be sold by the Revance company.  A new study showed that this new "Botox-like" drug works for 6, as opposed to 4 months.  
On tonight's show, I have Dr. Ed Zuckerberg as my guest.  As a dentist, he was instrumental in stimulating his son Mark to start Facebook, but Dr. Z is a brilliant practitioner in his own right.  Dr. Zuckerberg discussed the safety of dentistry during the COVID epidemic.  You won't want to miss this show! 
2020 has been a year to remember.  The COVID-19 virus vaccine is finally ready to be administered.  I had Dr. Ronald Nahass, infectious disease expert from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, as my guest talking about the new vaccine.  We also spoke about blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) surgery - the risks, the benefits, and how I do the procedure.  Finally, we discussed how tummy tucks have now been proven to improve back pain.  Listen in.
This was my 16th anniversary show!  Who would've thought!  On tonight's show, we discussed eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) - how I do the procedure.  Who is a good candidate, and when a belt tightening procedure (canthopexy) is needed.  I also discussed the dangers of injecting lower eyelid grooves.. Tune in to hear why I no longer perform this procedure...
Liposuction has been one of the two most popular cosmetic procedures each year since 1985.  On tonight's show, I discuss this incredibly wonderful procedure that can remove up to 10 pounds of fat safely in one morning.  We talk about the risks and benefits of selective removal of fat through liposuction.  
Dr. Michael Roizen joined me for a full half hour - discussing his new diet book, COVID, and many other topics.  Tune in for the best show we've ever done!
You are what you eat, my mother always told me.  And if you listen to Dr. Michael Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer Emeritus of the Cleveland Clinic, you'll be great.  On tonight's show, I spend the whole first half of the show with my ex co-host, Mike Roizen, discussing topics from diet to longevity, to his take on the Covid pandemic.  When you listen to Mike, you'll wonder why we are still in this mess - he has the answers!  We also discuss my favorite topics - rhinoplasty and other cosmetic surgery.  Great show - don't miss it!
The decision to have cosmetic surgery is a big one.  Choose your plastic surgeon wisely, and then prepare for your consultation.  The consultation is an hour long "interview" - you interview your doctor and he/she interviews you.  You decide which procedure is best for you and whether that doctor is the right person to do the procedure.  On tonight's show, we discuss what should be discussed in a consultation.And my special guest was Dr. Ira Jacobson, the chief of hepatology at NYU.  Dr. Jacobson performed a colonoscopy on ME and, although the procedure was a pain in the ..., all went well.  Tonight, Ira discussed how he was part of the team that cured hepatitis C.
Tonight we discussed one of my favorite procedures - eyelid lifting surgery, called blepharoplasty surgery.  In this local anesthesia procedures, upper and lower lid skin is removed, along with a small amount of fat, to improve the appearance of the eyelids.  A great procedure that really rejuvenates the face.We also had a special guest, Beverly Hills Dermatologist Dr. Vicki Rapaport, spoke about a new problem called "maskne" - acne under the mask that is used during the COVID19 epidemic. She also gave practical tips on how to use masks.  
Ulthera uses high intensity sound energy to rejuvenate the skin.  It does that by literally burning the tissues under the skin.  This shrinks the tissue and generates new collagen.  It can raise the brow and jowls and tighten the skin of the neck.  We discuss who is the right candidate for Ulthera.  We also discussed the nonsurgical rhinoplasty- what it can and can not do.  
COVID19 is a terrible scourge.  But it has allowed many people to have cosmetic surgery because so many people are telecommuting - performing their jobs from home.  And so many procedures now can be performed with just a day or two lost from work - as long as no one sees you.  And with masks, even procedures that cause bruising of the face can be hidden.  Those are some of the reasons cosmetic surgery is so popular now.  We also discussed the chemical in hair dye and henna dye - it's not as safe as you would like.  And tonight, my special guest was Dr. Robert Grant, Chief of Plastic Surgery at both Columbia and Cornell.  Dr. Grant discussed the management of plastic surgery patients during this epidemic.  We also discussed breast reconstruction with smooth implants.  
Great show tonight!  So many of my patients are confused - should they have a peel or a laser?  And which level of peel is right for them? We hammer through the pros and cons of lasers and peels on tonight's show.  And, my special guest today was Dr. George Fielding, Professor of Surgery and Director of Surgical Weight Loss at NYU.  Great day for Dr. Fielding to be on because one of his well known lap band patients, Chris Christie, was released from the hospital today after a week of COVID.  And today, the CDC issued a warning that overweight people, not just obese people, do worse with COVID.  Makes you want to get that gastric sleeve right now, doesn't it?  Then see me for your tummy tuck.  Listen in..
Most of plastic surgery is wonderful.  Procedures have been developed that help people look normal.  NORMAL.  That's the goal in both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.  But every now and then a real wacky procedure comes around - like muscle stripping for big calves, or adding implants to make breasts larger during the same procedure where they are being made smaller (yes, I said that correctly).  Or placing the eyebrows half way up the forehead...or making lips that look like sausages.  On tonight's show, we tackle the strange and wacky and dubious, and plain stupid procedures in plastic surgery. I also talk about my appearance on the Oprah TV Show.   I have to say, this was one of the best shows I've done in my 16 years on the radio.
Skin care companies are constantly searching or ingredients that will motivate you to purchase something new...and expensive.  So, have you heard about Red deer antler stem cells in skin care?  Listen to tonight's show as I blow this one out of the water.  It's the poster child for why you need to be careful with skin care....
You're wearing a mask anyway, so why not take advantage of it.  Procedures that normally would keep you in hiding can be performed now and you'll not lose any time.  Wrinkle filler, lasers, peels and dermabrasion, lip augmentations and rhinoplasties are all procedures that cause bruising or wounding and require at least a few days in hiding.  Not any more!  On tonight's show, we discussed the procedures that are well suited for this unusual (and hopefully temporary) era.
Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the largest plastic surgery organization in the world, asks its members the number of procedures they did last year.  The list is out, and once again, breast augmentation leads the surgical procedures, but Botox dwarfs every surgical procedure with over 7 million injections last year.  Tune in to hear the full list...and more....
Most cosmetic surgical procedures are performed solely for cosmetic benefit.  But there are two procedures that also have medical benefit.  On tonight's show, we discussed breast reductions and tummy tucks.  Breast reductions relieve back and neck pain and decrease yeast infections. Tummy tucks strengthen the abdominal muscles and decrease back pain and improve posture.  Listen to tonight's show where we discuss these two procedures.  And as a bonus, the world famous Jeffra Bogart called in to discuss liposuction.  You won't want to miss this show.  
Some plastic surgeons do strange things.  Like the one who is doing "drive through Botox" in his own garage.  Makes no sense - from an infectious disease, epidemiological, medical, social, or economic standpoint.  So why would he do this?  Could it be to get publicity?  Is your car an appropriate place for a medical procedure?  Is the lighting optimal?  Is it clean?  On tonight's show we discussed this ridiculous procedure, as well as why you should be wearing a mask during the coronavirus pandemic.  We also discussed my facelift and wrinkle filler techniques.
PRP - or platelet rich plasma is one of those mythological procedures in cosmetic surgery.  Sometimes called the Vampire facial, this procedure takes your own blood, removes cells, and reinjects it into your face or scalp. It's supposed to grow hair, but a recent study showed that dirt cheap minoxidil was actually better than this multithousand dollar procedure in growing hair.  Listen to tonight's show as I discuss this and other procedures in cosmetic surgery.
When I perform cosmetic rhinoplasties (nasal reshaping surgery), I rarely touch the septum. Most patients have a slightly deviated septum (the cartilage between the nostrils) but unless the septum is obstructing the nose or tilting it significantly to the side, it should not be operated on.  That's because the septum is the structural support of the nose and it can collapse if it is operated on.  So many septums are operated on just to get the patient insurance coverage.  That's wrong at so many levels  - medically and socioeconomically.  Tonight, we discuss the merits of operations on the nasal septum.
Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure amongst the 25 to 65 year old population.  268,000 people had it last year.  The procedure is very safe and very effective - as long as you are healthy and your surgeon knows what he or she is doing...  Today, we talk all about this wonderful body altering procedure.  We also discussed celiac disease and the myths of gluten with my guest from RWJBarnabus Health.  Tune in.  
Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are the three common botulinum drugs - they paralyze muscles and reduce wrinkles.  But on average they last only 4 months.  So my patients usually come in every 4 months for Botox.  But there's a new drug on the horizon.  This drug has great data that shows it lasts 6 months.   Justlast week, the FDA began its 10 month review process.  All indications are that this new one, as yet unnamed, will be sold before the end of this year.  Tune in to hear about the next generation Botox.
Botox is the most popular procedure in all of plastic surgery.  With over 6 and a half million people having Botox last year, it is incredibly safe and incredibly effective.  On today's show, we discuss everything about Botox, from the injection technique, to its benefits, and its excellent safety profile.  Tune in!
