Why the Oscars are bad for plastic surgery!

As I was watching the Oscars last week, I was appalled by what I saw. Apparently, so were some of my clients. Every year after the glamorous event, I hear these same questions: “Will my plastic surgery make me look like some of those movie stars I see at the Oscars?” “If those people have […]

New technology to treat and tighten skin

Dear Dr. Wolf, I have these wrinkles around my lips that have been driving me crazy. I went to a dermatologist who put some Restylane in the area and now I have little bumps all over. Needless to say, I’m not happy. I also had somebody tell me that laser was the only way to […]

Transfom your body with CoolSculpting procedure
