Neck Liposculpture, Fat Transfer & Platelet Rich Plasma

I noted an article in one of those international airline magazines recently about people paying mega-bucks for “new” sensational non-invasive procedures like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) fortified fat transfer graft associated with suture face lifts.

"A Wallet-Ectomy" The 11 most Overrated Cosmetic Procedures.

“A Wallet-Ectomy.” As cosmetic doctors we do get rather excited about promising advances in our field.Sadly however quite a significant number of such advances prove to be in the nature of ‘vendre un canard à moitié’ (to half-sell a duck)!

Interviewed in the June edition of Women’s Health & Fitness Magazine:

I had the pleasure of participating as one of  four trainers at the…

Hold the Muscle Relaxants!

Hold the Muscle Relaxants- (at least a little)! The gorgeously curvy, feminine and mega-talented Italian Mezzo Soprano Cecilia Bartoli could not achieve her exquisite & expressive musical heights if she was injudiciously injected with Muscle Relaxants.
