Curvy Is the New Skinny

As a plastic surgeon in Fort Myers, I see beauty trends come and go. One that I find particularly positive for women is the trend toward curvier, healthier-looking bodies. In the past, short-lived fads inspired women to drastically restrict their diets in order to achieve a glorified, and unrealistic, waifish silhouette. Thanks in part to the influence of high-profile celebrities who have embraced their full, feminine and sensual figures, women today want to look shapely rather than thin and angular. … Continue reading

After liposculpture, you’ll have a more-contoured, better-defined neck and face that can make … Continue reading

Is Size C the New Size D?

Recently, I’ve read several articles that report a downsizing trend among celebrities: They’re downsizing their breast implants. Many of my patients who are considering breast augmentation in Naples have seen similar articles, and they want my advice on whether they should choose a smaller size as well. Size matters — and I recognize that fact. What I also want women to consider, however, is that they should choose their implant size based on what they want, not on what other … Continue reading
