(New York, NY) March 4, 2012
New York City Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Matthew Schulman, has been recognized as one of the “Top Plastic Surgeons in America” in the 2012 Castle Connolly’s guide to America’s Top Doctors. He joins an elite group of physicians who have been selected to represent “the best of the best” in the field of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.
Cosmetic Surgery is designed to either change a body feature that you do not like, or to make you look younger. In today’s economic climate, cosmetic surgery is more than just a matter of vanity. It can mean economic survival for many because it may be exactly what some people need to get that job – or keep the job they already have.
Choosing a Plastic Surgeon is an important decision. You place an enormous amount of trust in your surgeon and he/she ultimately is responsible for your cosmetic results and your safety. No matter how you first found your surgeon, there are some key questions to ask before you commit to surgery. As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon specializing in Cosmetic Surgery, here are 5 questions that I think are the most important:
Cosmetic surgery has had a reputation for being exclusive to the rich and famous, but the truth is that cosmetic surgery has become more mainstream and more common among the working middle class. I have seen this specifically in my practice. Despite my exclusive Park Avenue location in one of the richest zip codes in the nation, my waiting room is commonly filled with teachers, nurses, and secretaries sitting next to lawyers, executives, and actors. I love this diversity among my patients.
How to Achieve a Butt like the Stars JLo, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce
In the world of cosmetic surgery, it is common for patients to specifically request the body part of a Hollywood Star – not the actual body part in a Dexter sort of way, but that their body part be altered to resemble someone else’s. When it comes to buttocks, leading the list of most requested are Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce. While genetics probably has the most to do with it, a good combination of liposuction and fat transfer can help my patients of plastic surgery at my office in New York City.
My New York City practice has grown considerably over the past several years. While the majority of my patients originally came for New York and the outer boroughs, an increasing number of people are now coming from greater distances. At first I began to draw patients from the greater Tri-State area as patients came to New York City for the latest innovative procedures. Recently, my patients have been coming even greater distances. In fact, I now routinely see patients that come from as far away as California, Florida, Bermuda, and Europe.
If you traveled by airplane over the holidays you might have seen or experienced the latest security measures, x-ray scanners. The Transportation Security Administration has implemented a new advanced body imaging device that can basically see through clothing to detect any form of foreign object in or on the body.
It is common for my patients to request specific body parts of celebrities. Topping this list is Angelina Jolie’s lips, Kim Kardasian’s butt, and Jennifer Aniston’s breasts. This is common in plastic surgery, and plastic surgeons have come to expect (and accept) this because many of these body parts represent what we consider the aesthetic ideal.
Just as frequently though, patients request not to look like well known celebrities. This list of celebrity “don’t-wanna-be” changes a few times a year, but here is a list of the most common celebrity no-nos and tips to avoid looking like them.
