    Simone has always believed that anything is possible and desired to inspire people to choose everything they could, thus creating one of her business’s Good Vibes For You – which was about inspiring people to choose, change and be different, which drew her to Access Consciousness.

    Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Judith August discuss the following:

    • How did you start your company, and why did you choose corrective cosmetics over color cosmetics?

    As a former model, make-up artist, and lecturer, she spent years guiding individuals in the Art of Camouflage Make-up. It was through her work as a consultant to plastic surgeons and their patients, that THE EVERYTHING PENCIL™ was born. Today, she designs cosmetics that cover and conceal just about anything, from simple flaws to serious discolorations.

    This year, she published her book, Gotcha Covered -The Compact Guide To Camouflage Makeup.  The perfect “go to” guide  to learning the art of camouflage makeup.

    Links:, letting consumers search for plastic surgery pricing information and local doctors

    November 18, 2013

    Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of, a website that lets consumers search for plastic surgery pricing information and local doctors joins eHealth Radio and the Plastic Surgery Information Channel.


    Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Jonathan Kaplan discuss the following:

    • Tell us about your company called Build My Bod.
    • Why is this important? 
    • Who searches for plastic surgery information?
    • Tell us about the physicians on – what are their qualifications?
    • There is a BuildMyBod app as well?
    • You write a blog as well – what are some of the typical topics our listeners would find of interest, and how do they subscribe?
    • Is there a health tip about you would like to give our listeners?

    Duration: 12:55

    Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board certified plastic surgeon originally from Alexandria, LA, is now proud to call San Francisco home. After completing his plastic surgery fellowship at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic where he was trained by the same team that performed the first US face transplant, he practiced in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for six years before acquiring Pacific Heights Plastic Surgery in San Francisco.

    While in Baton Rouge during his first six years in practice, Dr. Kaplan built a busy cosmetic practice. His area of focus ranged from facial to body cosmetic surgery, as well as cosmetic medicine, including injectibles such as BOTOX for wrinkles and fillers for smile lines. Dr. Kaplan’s brother-in-law Dr. Mark Hausmann is a weight loss surgeon in Baton Rouge, and this resulted in Dr. Kaplan gaining a great deal of experience in body contouring after massive weight loss.

    Dr. Kaplan noticed that patients were coming to consultations without an appreciation for the different costs associated with plastic surgery. He found that most patients couldn’t find an estimate for plastic surgery on the internet and when they would call the doctor’s office, they would hear the same explanation. “The doctor can’t give estimates over the phone since surgical needs are different for everyone.” While it is true that everyone has unique needs, there’s nothing wrong with giving an estimate online so the patient can know if surgery is out of their budget.

    From that realization, was born. BuildMyBod is a website and iPhone/iPad app that Dr. Kaplan developed.  It allows patients to find plastic surgeons in their area, peruse the various procedures the doctor offers and get itemized estimates on those procedures. In the process, Dr. Kaplan and the patient are connected through an email “wish list” that the patient submits.  If the price is within the patient’s budget, this could lead to a consultation that is now more-informed and without the typical “sticker shock” that so many patients experience with their plastic surgeon.
