Cosmetic Surgeon versus Plastic Surgeon

Some people call these days we are living in the Information Age. But a better term could be the Disinformation Age.

The Aftermath of Dramatic Weight Loss

Losing weight and finally achieving your dream body must be a victorious moment, but when the weight loss has been too dramatic, you may experience loose, saggy skin.

Don’t Forget Your Neck

This can leave a person with a younger looking face, but immediately below on full display is sagging skin and neck banding. Considering the weather we love here in Coastal Carolina, there […]


Why Does the Face Show Time?

While gaining life experience has its pluses, the rest of aging stinks. It’s been said, “Time conquers all.” This is certainly true of our skin, particularly on our face.

Getting the Nose You Want

Some things about our appearance that we don’t like we can’t do much about. If you’re shorter than you’d like to be, higher heels are about all you can do. Of, if you think your feet are too big. Not much to do about that, either. But you don’t have to live with a nose […]


When to Tuck a Tuck Into Your Schedule

Some people don’t understand the difference between a tummy and liposuction.  They wonder why anyone would opt for the more involved procedure and recovery of a tummy tuck when they could get the same results with liposuction.
