Rank #1: The Reality of Mommy Makeovers

Podcast cover
Read more
A typical Mommy Makeovers is a combination of Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck and sometimes Liposuction.

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Gerald Minniti discusses the various aspects of a mommy makeover, as well as answers  listener's questions about tummy tuck swelling and how to prevent infection after a breast augmentation.  

Dr. Minniti's philosophy about plastic surgery is that's it is important to bring your husband to the consultation so he can hear directly from him. Or bring a friend or family member.

If you are thinking about a Mommy Makeover, both a breast augmentation and tummy tuck, keep in mind your recovery will be longer but your surgery price will be less.

Having a mommy makeover a lengthy procedure and a longer recovery.

There are many things to think about when considering these surgeries; technique, skill, cost, complications.  Dr. Minniti addresses some of these issues in this episode, including why women in California have more complications from Breast Augmentation, the new drain-less tummy tuck, mini vs full tummy tuck  and answers some questions  from our listeners.

There will be more show notes on niptuckcoach.com

Podcast cover
Read more

New Series: Boob Talk Episode #1

Do I really need a lift with my breast augmentation?

Part 1: Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marc Mani shares his expertise about breast augmentations and discusses the question of having a lift with your implants or not.

Sometimes there are complications to breast augmentation. A double bubble is a post surgery complication. Healing takes 3-6 months before you can have revision surgery. 

Implants make a breast bigger; they really don't lift a breast. However, there are times that an implant can create lift on some patients. But implants don't really lift the breast as a whole.  Larger implants will be more above the nipple and have a higher complication rate. Dr. Mani prefers smaller implants especially in mature patients. 

If you feel you need a lift after your implant its best to wait 6-12 months before you have a lift.

"Having a plastic surgery procedure has an impact psychologically and emotionally. 

It's important that doctors make the time to treat people with dignity and respect

Podcast cover

Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Diamond shares his expertise on celebrity facelifts. What is the trend for 2015? We also discuss the misconceptions of removing fat under the chin. 

Plastic Surgery is main stream and many people are getting facelifts younger and younger. But not all facelifts are alike and not one technique works on all patients. 

Patients have many misconceptions today about plastic surgery procedures, it is an easy sell. What's most important is that they have an understanding of the procedure what it can and cannot accomplish.

Celebrities and models  earn a living with their looks, there is no room for error, yet we all have seen some disastrous plastic surgery results. Dr. Diamond talks about his different facelift techniques and what is the new 2015 lift. 

We also discuss misconceptions about fat and some of the common problems people have after procedures such Kybella, Thermage and other skin tightening devices used in the neck area.

Eliminating fat will make you have a facelift sooner, according to Dr Diamond. The area under the chin and neck is a misunderstood area.  A common problem he sees after liposuction,Thermage or Ulthera is that the patient's necks is more wrinkled and creppy.  Most people with aging faces do not have any excess fat. Consumers need to be very careful about these treatments.

Dr. Diamond is dual Board Certified by the Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery.  Dr. Diamond was recognized at the 2008 Aesthetics Show as “Best Facial Plastic Surgeon” and honored with “The Best Facial Plastic Surgeon Award” by his peers and colleagues. Dr. Diamond has been the featured facial plastic surgeon on E! Entertainment’s “Dr. 90210” for the last seven consecutive years and is used as a plastic surgery resource for such media as the Discovery Health Channel and Entertainment Tonight and publications such as Harper’s Bazaar Magazine, Life & Style Magazine, and People Magazine.

Rank #11: Episode 2 Choosing Breast Implants

Podcast cover
Read more

There are so many Breast Implant materials to choose from. What is the right implant for you?

New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Brian Cohen shares his expertise about choosing the right breast implants with host Michele Garber, The NipTuck Coach.

 The trend in breast implants today is smaller and natural.  According Dr. Cohen larger implants are prone to more complications. 

Breast Implants are safe devices. Patients should be well informed before choosing implants and pick the right Board Certified Plastic Surgeon whose expertise is in breast augmentation. 

What do most patients want? Silicone. Silicone breast implants have come a long way and are safe. They are softer and look more natural than Saline.  Today Silicone Implants come in different shapes such as round, smooth or textured, and anatomic. Are you looking for more upper pole fullness, or more a tear drop shape? 

Not all surgeons are comfortable with anatomic  implants, there is a steeper learning curve for the surgeon and if they rotate they will look strange.  

Anatomic breast implants should be "as snug as a buy in the rug," says Dr. Cohen.

Gummy Bear Implants are firmer but soft and more expensive than other implants. Gummy Bear implants are excellent for breast reconstructive patients. Sometimes the choice of implants really comes down to the dugeon’s 

 Saline implants are made up of salt water and if they rupture you will know right away. However, they feel firmer, can ripple and don't look as natural as Silicone. Th newest Saline Implant is called The Ideal Implant. Is it really ideal?? 

Do you know that Botox is being used in the breasts as well as fillers and fat transfer?

We'll also touch on the subject of risks, capsular contracture and the risks of ALCL.

Rank #12: Boob Talk: Episode #3 State of Art Breast Augmentation 2018 with Dr. Steve Teitelbaum

Podcast cover
Read more

Are You Demanding Enough From Your Plastic Surgeon?

Teitelbaum is guided by principles of proportion and restraint, and he produces astonishingly natural looking results.

- Allure Magazine 2013

Santa Monica Board certified plastic surgeon Steven Teitelbaum, MD talks with Host, Michele Garber sharing his expertise and wisdom about why patients should be demanding more from their plastic surgeons when seeking breast augmentation.

According to Dr. Teitelbaum there have been many advances over the past 15-20 years in breast augmentation surgery that plastic surgeons are still not following. Why?  Breast augmentation could be a lot safer, less revisions, less downtime and less pain. 

Too many plastic surgeons don't care about how a woman will look with her implants in 4-5 years.

Dr. Teitelbaum is currently using nerve blocks for pain which gives the patient a much better recovery with significantly less pain. 

Patients should be asking a lot more questions when thinking about any plastic surgery procedure. 

We also talk about cup size in relationship to implant size and a patient's body. Everyone is different and when considering implants its important to have the proper measurements. 

Although you may be thinking about big implants, think twice and consider that big implants can permanently cause damage to your breasts, sometimes this is irreversible. Women should be educated to understand that having 600-650cc and more is really not a wise choice. Not only does it look fake, it's unhealthy. However, there are expectations based on a woman's body type and height. Our national breast tissue was not meant to be stretched that much. Something to really think about when you are considering breast implants.

Ask your surgeon if he or she is comfortable with all types of breast implants including tear-drop shape which takes more skill.

Patient should look at evidence based literature to learn about breast augmentation not opinion based. 

And we talk about a lot more...

Who do you go to for Botox and Fillers?  You have choices.

A Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, (CANS) An Aesthetic Nurse injector, Nurse Practitioner or a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon. There are different approaches to patient  care and injecting techniques.

How to you find someone who is good?

The world of Aesthetics changes very fast. It's important for practitioners to  stay up-to-date with changes and injection techniques for new fillers on the market. Weekend course in injectables is not going to make an expert. There are risks such as adverse reactions and remember bad things can happen to even the best MD or RN. Your injector must know how to treat any filler related emergency. 

MK Maloney, shares her  expertise on how to use Fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, costs and advice on how to choose the best injector.

Rank #15: Boob Talk Episode #4 The Laser Bra Lift with Dr. Grant Stevens

Podcast cover
Read more

The Laser Bra Lift

Are you a good candidate for an internal bra lift instead of a traditional breast lift? LA Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Grant Stevens discusses the advantages of the Laser Bra Lift and who is the best candidate with Host, Michele Garber.

The Laser Bra is not new. Dr. Stevens has been preforming this lift since the 1990's. However, there are surgeons who believe it is nonsense. Dr. Stevens has preformed thousands of these lifts seeing excellent results lasting longer than traditional breast lifts. It is effective and safe. This is still a surgical procedure. 

The Laser Bra uses a patients own skin to lift the breasts, creating an internal bra lifting your breast to give you upper pole fullness. This skin is traditionally thrown away. Imagine placing your hand under your breasts and pushing up. However, this surgery is not for everyone. You have to have enough skin in order for this technique to be effective. If example you have ptotic breasts and your nipples points down, you are a perfect candidate. Or maybe you want a lift without implants or are having your implants removed and only want a lift. You must have enough skin for this lift. 

According to Dr. Stevens his laser bra lifts have a longer longevity than the traditional breast lifts. Patient's need to be aware that this lift is not scarless as some website say it is . There is a scar. Recovery time is the same as a traditional breast lift. Why don't more surgeons offer this procedure? One reason is that surgeons need a very expensive CO2 Laser in order to preform this surgery. 

We talked a little about the current trend in aesthetic medicine for a more natural look across the board.  Women want to look natural and more women are exchanging their large implants for smaller ones. In fact Dr. Stevens see a 60/40 split. More woman are wanting a lift without implants. These statistics use to be reversed. 

What's on the horizon for plastic surgery? Maybe a scarless breast lift in the near future. Stay tuned....

Special Episode In Memory of Dr. Vic Narurkar Fillers, Botox and Complications

Podcast cover

In Memory of Dr. Vic Narurkar

Last week the world of Dermatology and Aesthetic medicine lost a super star.

We are all greatly shocked and saddened by the unexpected passing of San Francisco Dermatologist, Dr. Vic Narurkar.  He was a thought leader, visionary  friend, colleague, educator, mentor and my dermatologist.

Dr. Narurkar touched many people. He was a bright shinning light with a vibrant personality and  great passion for aesthetic medicine. He loved his work and loved his patients. 

Dr. Narurkar also loved teaching and being on the cutting edge of the world of aesthetics. He was involved with many clinical trials and lectured frequently at medical meetings.  

Patient safety and spreading the word about the importance of going to a Board Certified Dermatologist whose core specialty is aesthetic medicine was one of his passions. 

Dr. Narurkar's favorite social media hashtag was #noposers

This podcast episode is curated from 2 live podcast interviews in 2014 and 2015.

In Part 1 we discuss Botox, the newest FDA fillers and some of latest trends in aesthetic medicine.

Dr. Narurkar shares his expertise about  Botox and how it is not the same as other neurotoxins. We discuss Voluma and longer lasting fillers.

The duration of fillers in clinical trials are different from what people may experience. It's important to understand this.  We talk about the different kinds of filler injections. We discuss the 3 types of fillers.  HA fillers which are temporary, longer lasting fillers that cannot be dissolved  and permanent fillers. *Note: Artefill is now called Bellafill.

Dr. Narurkar shares his expertise  and  insights about  some of latest energy devices like Clear and Brilliant and the Pico Laser for brown spots. 

Part 2 covers the subject of filler injection complications, treatments and rare Biofilm reactions. If you are considering fillers or have them- this episode is full of important information not to be missed. 

Biofilm is an inflammatory response to fillers that are injected deeper in the skin. There is lots of confusion online and people get alarmed.  Many times its non-FDA fillers injected by non-certified dermatologists or other people who do not have a medical license to practice. Allergic reactions to fillers are different from Biofilm.  

Fillers are very safe but sometimes reactions can happen. What are some signs you may have an adverse filler reaction and what are the treatment options.

Dr. Vic Narurkar- you will always be in my heart!

Special Bonus Episodes in honor of Healthy Skin Month NOVEMBER IS HEALTHY SKIN MONTH. Just in time for the winter months.

From a previously released episode.

Derm Diva, New York Board Certified Dermatologist  Dr. Hedi Waldorf discusses how beauty and healthy skin is a lifestyle. 

Dr. Waldorf is a board certified Dermatologist with a private practice in New York. She serves as an Investigator Speaker, Consultant, Advisory Board Member and trainer for medical devices and products allowing her to participate for development of treatment protocols and to offer her patients the latest treatments. She has been quoted in magazines such as Galore, Ell, Vogue, e, The Oprah, Oprah magazine, Instyle, People Style Watch, Good Housekeeping, Real Simple among others and Dr. Waldorf has a private practice in both New York at Mount Sinai Medical Center and Nanuet, New York at Waldorf Dermatology and Laser Associates. 

"People come in and they are worried about what anti-ageing products they should use and they are not cleansing properly, they are drying out their skin. You know, borrowing a few unusual circumstances, you do not need an anti-bacterial cleanser or a deodorant cleanser for your face and body. You can use something very gentle. Dove is the classic. Dove and Olay both make products that are very gentle in replenishing for the skin and strip less moisture and the minute you get out of the shower or washing, feel that skin because if you are an intact skin barrier is always going to look more useful and be more supple and soft than a non-intact barrier and you do not want to wait until your skin is chapped or itchy or irritated to start taking care of it."

Boob Talk Episode #4 The Laser Bra Lift with Dr. Grant Stevens

Podcast cover

The Laser Bra Lift

Are you a good candidate for an internal bra lift instead of a traditional breast lift? LA Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Grant Stevens discusses the advantages of the Laser Bra Lift and who is the best candidate with Host, Michele Garber.

The Laser Bra is not new. Dr. Stevens has been preforming this lift since the 1990's. However, there are surgeons who believe it is nonsense. Dr. Stevens has preformed thousands of these lifts seeing excellent results lasting longer than traditional breast lifts. It is effective and safe. This is still a surgical procedure. 

The Laser Bra uses a patients own skin to lift the breasts, creating an internal bra lifting your breast to give you upper pole fullness. This skin is traditionally thrown away. Imagine placing your hand under your breasts and pushing up. However, this surgery is not for everyone. You have to have enough skin in order for this technique to be effective. If example you have ptotic breasts and your nipples points down, you are a perfect candidate. Or maybe you want a lift without implants or are having your implants removed and only want a lift. You must have enough skin for this lift. 

According to Dr. Stevens his laser bra lifts have a longer longevity than the traditional breast lifts. Patient's need to be aware that this lift is not scarless as some website say it is . There is a scar. Recovery time is the same as a traditional breast lift. Why don't more surgeons offer this procedure? One reason is that surgeons need a very expensive CO2 Laser in order to preform this surgery. 

We talked a little about the current trend in aesthetic medicine for a more natural look across the board.  Women want to look natural and more women are exchanging their large implants for smaller ones. In fact Dr. Stevens see a 60/40 split. More woman are wanting a lift without implants. These statistics use to be reversed. 

What's on the horizon for plastic surgery? Maybe a scarless breast lift in the near future. Stay tuned....

Boob Talk: Episode #3 State of Art Breast Augmentation 2018 with Dr. Steve Teitelbaum

Podcast cover
Read more

Are You Demanding Enough From Your Plastic Surgeon?

Teitelbaum is guided by principles of proportion and restraint, and he produces astonishingly natural looking results.

- Allure Magazine 2013

Santa Monica Board certified plastic surgeon Steven Teitelbaum, MD talks with Host, Michele Garber sharing his expertise and wisdom about why patients should be demanding more from their plastic surgeons when seeking breast augmentation.

According to Dr. Teitelbaum there have been many advances over the past 15-20 years in breast augmentation surgery that plastic surgeons are still not following. Why?  Breast augmentation could be a lot safer, less revisions, less downtime and less pain. 

Too many plastic surgeons don't care about how a woman will look with her implants in 4-5 years.

Dr. Teitelbaum is currently using nerve blocks for pain which gives the patient a much better recovery with significantly less pain. 

Patients should be asking a lot more questions when thinking about any plastic surgery procedure. 

We also talk about cup size in relationship to implant size and a patient's body. Everyone is different and when considering implants its important to have the proper measurements. 

Although you may be thinking about big implants, think twice and consider that big implants can permanently cause damage to your breasts, sometimes this is irreversible. Women should be educated to understand that having 600-650cc and more is really not a wise choice. Not only does it look fake, it's unhealthy. However, there are expectations based on a woman's body type and height. Our national breast tissue was not meant to be stretched that much. Something to really think about when you are considering breast implants.

Ask your surgeon if he or she is comfortable with all types of breast implants including tear-drop shape which takes more skill.

Patient should look at evidence based literature to learn about breast augmentation not opinion based. 

And we talk about a lot more...

Episode 2 Choosing Breast Implants

Podcast cover
Read more

There are so many Breast Implant materials to choose from. What is the right implant for you?

New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Brian Cohen shares his expertise about choosing the right breast implants with host Michele Garber, The NipTuck Coach.

 The trend in breast implants today is smaller and natural.  According Dr. Cohen larger implants are prone to more complications. 

Breast Implants are safe devices. Patients should be well informed before choosing implants and pick the right Board Certified Plastic Surgeon whose expertise is in breast augmentation. 

What do most patients want? Silicone. Silicone breast implants have come a long way and are safe. They are softer and look more natural than Saline.  Today Silicone Implants come in different shapes such as round, smooth or textured, and anatomic. Are you looking for more upper pole fullness, or more a tear drop shape? 

Not all surgeons are comfortable with anatomic  implants, there is a steeper learning curve for the surgeon and if they rotate they will look strange.  

Anatomic breast implants should be "as snug as a buy in the rug," says Dr. Cohen.

Gummy Bear Implants are firmer but soft and more expensive than other implants. Gummy Bear implants are excellent for breast reconstructive patients. Sometimes the choice of implants really comes down to the dugeon’s 

 Saline implants are made up of salt water and if they rupture you will know right away. However, they feel firmer, can ripple and don't look as natural as Silicone. Th newest Saline Implant is called The Ideal Implant. Is it really ideal?? 

Do you know that Botox is being used in the breasts as well as fillers and fat transfer?

We'll also touch on the subject of risks, capsular contracture and the risks of ALCL.

New Series: Boob Talk Episode #1

Do I really need a lift with my breast augmentation?

Part 1: Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marc Mani shares his expertise about breast augmentations and discusses the question of having a lift with your implants or not.

Sometimes there are complications to breast augmentation. A double bubble is a post surgery complication. Healing takes 3-6 months before you can have revision surgery. 

Implants make a breast bigger; they really don't lift a breast. However, there are times that an implant can create lift on some patients. But implants don't really lift the breast as a whole.  Larger implants will be more above the nipple and have a higher complication rate. Dr. Mani prefers smaller implants especially in mature patients. 

If you feel you need a lift after your implant its best to wait 6-12 months before you have a lift.

Michele spoke with Canadian Chiropractor, Dr.Andrew Kerklaan who recently  launched a line of Cannabis -infused Topicals for Pain Relief, PMS, Skincare and Sleep. Cannabis extracts containing THC and CBD can deliver fast-acting long lasting relief.  "Cannabis can have a very positive effect on our health. Topicals don't get into your blood stream."

Many women opt for tummy tucks. After the surgery they are excited to show off their new bodies. However, sometimes the scar is placed to high or it does not heal well. 

Tune in to hear how one woman solved the ugly tummy tuck scar problem.

Denise O'Connell is the Founder of TuckTats, and lives in Canada. 

Denise had a tummy tuck and knew that there was a possibility that she would not heal well due to a prior surgery and her skin type.

Denise loved her new body, wanted to show it off, but ultimately her scar was placed too high on her abdomen and as expected did not heal well. She was left with an angry high scar, so she could not show off her new body in bikinis. She tried scar cream and silicone applications but her scar still looked angry. Denise did not want to spend more money on scar revision or laser. She was tired of wearing high bikinis.

Tune in to hear Denise discuss how she solved her problem. Now women everywhere can cover their abdominal scars in a sexy and fun way.
