This Blog
I started this blog in 2008 as a way to educate prospective patients about different facets of plastic surgery and make people realize there is a lot more to plastic surgery than Hollywood stars getting cosmetic surgery. In the process I hoped readers of the blog would be able to make better choices and more informed decisions when undergoing plastic surgery. Since then I have also added interesting plastic surgery in the news tidbits like snake bites breast implant and dies and blogs about new plastic surgery breakthroughs that will benefit future plastic surgery patients.
