The Limits of Products Promising an “At-Home Facelift”


When I use the term “facelift” at my Naples/Fort Myers practice, I do so only in the context of the surgical procedure. Facelift is a powerful word that evokes a certain, dramatic expectation.

What’s Really Making Your Belly Bulge?

What’s Really Making Your Belly Bulge

One of the most popular and gratifying cosmetic procedures I perform is the Mommy Makeover (a combination procedure usually consisting of a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast enhancement procedure such as breast augmentation).
