The hidden issues of the “dancing doctor”
Over the last month, a dermatologist practicing in Georgia known as the “dancing doctor” was suspended by the Georgia Medical Board, which said she posed a “threat to public health, safety, and welfare.” At least ten patients have sued this physician with complications including disfigurement and brain damage, and reportedly there are another 100 former patients who may pursue litigation as well. According to her social media account, this physician was performing cosmetic surgery procedures including abdominoplasty, fat grafting to the buttocks, and others that were far beyond her scope of training and in general ...

Liposuction and Tubal Reversal: Unethical and Dishonest
Most people who know me understand I am a patient advocate. I would like to speak out against a practice I find professionally distasteful. Some reversal doctors charge patients more because of body weight. Some even require patients have unnecessary liposuction during tubal reversal surgery at additional cost. Liposuction has serious risks, can increase the chance of a surgical complication, and should be considered a cosmetic procedure only. Doctors who require patients to have mandatory liposuction during reversal surgery are either medical quacks or clever cons. Continue reading for better understanding… Requir...

How a C-Section Changes Your Body
When I discovered I was pregnant with twins, my husband and I burst into tears of joy, followed by utter panic. Two of them? I soon realized that carrying multiples meant I would likely wind up having a C-section (a typical procedure for twin pregnancies). However, the idea of a potentially long and painful labor and delivery—times two—was scary, so I was relieved when my obstetrician suggested we go with a C-section. But the experience wasn’t all spinal taps and roses: In addition to a long and painful recovery, I was left with a surprising post-surgery souvenir: a brand new pooch that hovers right above my C-sectio...

Do you need a CT angiogram before DIEP flap breast reconstruction?
If you've had several previous abdominal surgeries and are considering DIEP flap breast reconstruction, a CT angiogram may be recommended by your plastic surgeon.A CT angiogram (CTA) is a special type of CT scan that examines the blood vessels in the abdomen to determine if they are intact and able to be used for DIEP flap reconstruction. It can also provide a "road map" for the surgeon and help locate the largest blood vessels ("perforators").Sometimes the vessels needed for the DIEP flap may have been damaged by previous abdominal surgery. Although the majority of previous abdominal surgeries are not a contraindication f...
