Botox Injections in the Stomach Don’t Help Weight Loss

I was reading a few months ago about some interesting work that had been done to help patient lose weight by injecting Botox into their stomachs.  The logic was that the stomach muscles would relax and therefore not empty the gastric contents very quickly, thereby causing early satiety and eventually weight loss.  Seems like a plan, right?  Too bad the latest studies contest the conclusions.

Gummy Bear Implants…They are Finally here, and We’ve Got Them!!!

Because in the old days the way a facelift was performed was to simply pull the skin back. But today, our understanding is that a youthful face is one that is full and has contours that an older face does not – and certainly that a pulled … Continue reading  

Arm Lift Surgery Options

I do a lot of body contouring. In my earlier years I was very possibly the most experienced plastic surgeon in New York City when it comes to post bariatric body contouring for loose skin. Times have changed, but I’m still glad that I have these skills, and I still do a fair number of arm lift cases…just not quite as many as I used to. Yesterday, I had yet another patient come in asking about her loose arm skin. She is a young woman and is still in the process of losing weight, so I suggested that she complete … Continue reading
