Over the last 30 years, thousands of Pittsburgh women have sat in my office, looking for a change. As a cosmetic surgeon, I have spent countless hours talking with them, listening to their concerns about their face, their neck, their body, their skin. I know what many of you are thinking — those who seek the services of a cosmetic surgeon do so out of vanity. However, in my experience this is simply not true. It is the stereotypes of those who choose cosmetic surgery procedures that are often played out in the media, which on the one hand chronicles every perceived physical flaw or change to a celebrity’s appearance, and on the other bemoans society’s fixation with youth and beauty.

I either need to change doctors or get a thicker skin.
On a recent visit to my primary care doctor to discuss lower back pain, he told me that women my age should stick to water aerobics. Really. No offense to any readers who are into that form of exercise, but in my mind at least I am still capable of pounding it out at the gym if and when I ever actually start going again. Read more
Every so often I read a book about age, and whoever’s writing it says it’s great to be old. It’s great to be wise and sage and mellow; it’s great to be at the point where you understand just what matters in life. I can’t stand people who say things like this. What can they be thinking? Don’t they have necks?
