You can probably remember a horror story or two of a certain celebrity who got botox injected in their face and were never able to make facial expressions again, or of Michael Jackson, who got his nose surgically massacred until it fell off his face every time he sneezed.

Plastic surgery is available for everyone nowadays -- including men.

The skill level of plastic surgeons is currently so high that you wouldn’t even...

One thing we are often asked about is the difference between traditional round breast implants and anatomically shaped breast implants. We are always happy to hear this question because it shows that the patient has done their research, but we know that many who have not yet consulted a plastic surgeon have the same question.
