Plastic Surgery Wins at the Academy Awards

Last night’s Academy Awards went pretty much as predicted.  Kudos to The Artist.  But there was one winner that really got my attention: Best Short Documentary: Saving Face.  This is a great story and one in which plastic surgery plays a leading role.

New “Bridalplasty” Show: Bad TV. Even Worse Medicine.

As if there were not enough tasteless and questionably ethical TV shows involving plastic surgery, there is one more to top the list. And it is, most unfortunately, being done by a Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Terry Dubrow from Newport Beach California.
