Listen to interview [audio player below] with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Adam D. Schaffner discuss the following:

  • Plastic surgery is certainly popular among women.  It appears that more men are getting plastic surgery and having cosmetic procedures such as BROTOX.  Is this true?
  • What is the latest in chin implants?  Why is everyone wanting a strong jawline?
  • I hear rapid recovery breast augmentation allows you to enlarge breasts and go back to work the next day.  How can this be?
  • It seems fat can not only be taken out but can be put back in to help improve one's appearance.  How exactly does this work and how can liposuction be good for your health?
  • Nowadays, it appears a lot of doctors and some people who aren't even doctors are performing cosmetic procedures.  What advice would you give to someone who is considering plastic surgery?

Conclusion Tip - If you are interested in plastic surgery, be sure to do your homework.  Make sure your plastic surgeon is a plastic surgeon.
