 Cando Cornejo was a beautiful 19-year-old beauty queen who won the "Queen of Duran" beauty pageant in Ecuador in October, 2014. On January 10, 2015 she died of complications related to abdominal liposuction in Guayaquil, Ecuador, the New York Post reports. In today's NY Post, Andrea Peyser writes in her column about another well-known (among plastic surgeons) tragedy. Ms. Peyser's take: "If cosmetic surgery disappeared today, we'd all get used to smaller boobs and imperfect noses.  That's fine with me." My take: Ms. Peyser is lobbing a cheap shot at an industry that has become an integral part of American life. Rather than decrying plastic surgery, she ought to champion better training and certification for surgeons,  and better patient education, worldwide.

Trauma to your child is often more traumatic for you, the parent, than for the child. During my 20 years as a facial plastic surgeon, I

I have seen pit bull attacks by the family dog that crush entire cheeks. I have seen jaws fractured and cheek bones mangled. In every case, the parent has been traumatized as much and often more than the child

Who says you can't put a bump back after a nose job?

I have a strange and unique practice. Patients who have had previous rhinoplasty and don't like their results come to me to have their noses fixed. This is challenging work. One of the most common things I hear from my patients is, "Doctor, I wish I could just go back to what I had before surgery!"

There is growing scientific evidence that Botox (botulinum toxin type A) helps patients who are clinically depressed. This does not mean the down-in-the-dumps, bummed out depression from missing the cyber Monday sale at Best Buy. It’s the kind of depression that requires potent psychotropic medications like Zoloft, Prozac and Celexa. It’s the kind of depression that can lead to feelings of extreme self-worthlessness and suicide.
