Make sure to call before we run out of availability for my next Chicago visit. I have some openings for injectable treatments/surgery consults only on Friday, May 11th and Saturday, May 12th. If you’re considering surgery, there is only limited availability left on Tuesday, May 8th. Surgery on that day still leaves plenty of time for recovery before summer hits in full force...but IF YOU WANT SURGERY ON THAT DATE, you would have to FIRST SET UP A CYBER CONSULT. Call 310-858-8930 to get scheduled before it’s too late! Also be on the lookout for injectable specials exclusive to my midwest peeps!
I’ll be presenting a video soon introducing a skincare line that we really believe in and which is currently available in my office (free shipping available to the continental US). In the meantime, here are some important skin care basics covering the essentials:
1- VITAMIN C has antioxidant power which means it protects cells from damage, has anti-aging benefits in diminishing/delaying wrinkles and fine lines, boosts collagen production, provides firmer and younger skin, improves skin's elasticity, texture and tone, reduces pore size, reverses damage caused by the sun, lightens dark spots, decreases skin redness, and reduces skin pigmentation.
2- RETINOIC ACID improves skin thickness by promoting cell turnover, promotes skin firmness by slowing collagen breakdown, improves skin elasticity, and lightens brown spots caused by sun exposure
4- MOISTURIZER prevents and treats dry skin which is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles, protects sensitive skin, improves skin tone and texture, masks imperfections, acts as a temporary barrier for your skin by holding water in the outermost layer of the skin, and protects the outer layer of the skin from harmful effects of sun, wind and other environmental factors.

A large portion of my practice is dedicated to revision breast surgery. These cases are best served by a provider experienced in both aesthetic AND reconstructive surgery.
This patient presented to me with an overly dissected right breast pocket and improper implant selection. The result was a right breast that was falling into her armpit. She was hoping to improve the right breast position, overall breast aesthetic and symmetry, and increase her size. At her 3 month check-in, we couldn’t be happier with her result.
Aesthetic breast surgery demands precision planning and execution. Poorly done primary augmentation can lead to expensive secondary surgeries.
If you are interested in either primary or revision aesthetic breast surgery, it’s always best to see a specialist 🙋🏻♂️ Call ☎️ 3108588930 to set up a consultation!
To my peoples driving back from Coachella through the desert....☀️+😊(+/-🚙)=👴🏻
This image is from an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2012. The man pictured was a truck driver for 28 years. Glass can shield you from the sun’s UVB radiation - long known to be linked with skin cancer as well as premature skin aging. On the other hand, as exemplified in this image, glass does NOT shield you from UVA radiation - which also causes premature aging of the face (think leathery, wrinkled, and sagging skin) and contributes to your risk of skin cancer. This picture offers a stunning example of the importance of daily SPF use. And I’m not just talking about when you’re sitting on the beach and I’m not just talking about my friends in warm-weather states. So make sure to include an SPF - that protects against both UVA and UVB rays - in your daily regimen!
So even though the first day of summer technically isn’t until mid June, I’ve sorta always looked at Memorial Day weekend as the summer season kickoff. That’s around 7 weeks from now. The patient’s bathing suit pics above are 6 weeks postop. At this point, she can get in the water and is completed unrestricted in terms of physical activity. In other words, if you have a breast augmentation in the next few weeks, you’ll be good to go for bathing suit time in the summer. Just sayin....(see what I did there?)

Came across this story in my newsfeed yesterday. Gonna dip my toe in the waters of controversy here but I am interested to hear what you guys think...
For those who can’t find the story, a 17 year old Florida girl went to school wearing the T shirt pictured above without a bra (her mother took the photo). She was called to the dean's office and told to put Band-Aids over her nipples because she was "distracting" other students. The administrators allegedly told Lizzy "a boy was laughing at her" and therefore asked her to cover up. In addition, according to Lizzy, “They had me put on a second shirt and then stand up and, like, move and jump around to see how much my breasts moved," she told BuzzFeed. "I was mortified.” ______________________________________________________
This story initially caught my eye since Instagram requires that female nipples be covered in all before and after posts, educational videos, etc. On a broader scale, it highlights a problematic double standard young women face growing up — instead of holding boys' level of respect to a higher standard, are we shaming young women for their bodies? Now I am not supporting flagrant disregard for human decency, respect, or taste, but it is interesting if not unfortunate how these things may at times appear to be gender-specific and seemingly inconsistent targets...
Curious to hear thoughts below 👇 ALL opinions are welcome. Let’s keep it civil and constructive. ✌🏻😊
Can you tell which is the “before” and which is the “after”? When volume deficient in the area beneath the eyes, light casts a shadow leading to a tired, “dark-circles” look. Meticulously placed filler can address this. In the right hands, you are 15 minutes away from a refreshed, natural-looking result with no downtime.
For a consultation, please call ☎️ 3108588930 and let’s get you sorted out!
Can you believe this transformation? Tummy tuck surgery really is a life-changer. My beautiful patient shared this postop bikini picture while on vacation with her husband and children. She had a tummy tuck as well as flank and arm liposuction. Her excitement over her new look pretty much made my day, week, month, and life.

She’s not just my right hand. She’s my both hands and feet. God prays to her for forgiveness of His sins. She can speak 47 languages in 48 languages (do the math). She never misses a green light. She’s never checked to see how many “likes” she got. The grass is equally green on both sides of her hill. For her, a penny saved inexplicably becomes a hundred dollars earned. Happy birthday @ewilkinson No words can possibly capture my gratitude for having you on my team. Thank you for being the awesome coordinator and friend that you are. I promise not to try to embarrass you as much on our Insta stories this year*

More like a sick joke. What’s wrong with people?
Benefits of caffeine: * Obliterates my frown muscles
* May help boost memory * Makes me happy
* May stimulate hair growth * May protect against Parkinson’s disease
* No, like, weirdly happy * Increases stamina during exercise * May have positive effects on liver health * Makes people concerned and perplexed over why I’m so happy * Decreases risk of kidney stones * Improves reaction time and logical reasoning * What is this “sadness” thing people keep talking about?
* May reduce chronic inflamation
We are now working with 5th generation silicone gel implants. These implants have become the gold standard in breast augmentation surgery. They have an excellent safety profile and as the gel is highly cohesive (aka “gummy bear”), even in cases of rupture, the implant maintains its overall shape. With this implant technology, I am able to deliver beautiful results that can fit any goal.

Fun useless fact: Pablo Picasso frequently used common house paint for his pieces. We all know he is widely considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and it’s interesting to me that Picasso is one of those rare artists who was famous in his own lifetime. But what’s really impressive was how unbelievably prolific he was. The total number of artworks he produced before his death has been estimated to be around 50,000 - 1,885 paintings; 1,228 sculptures; 2,880 ceramics, roughly 12,000 drawings, many thousands of prints, and numerous tapestries and rugs. As a plastic surgeon, I am inspired by his example of combining hard work with artistic passion.
