DR. ZUBOWSKI SAYS: INVESTING IN A GOOD RHINOPLASTY PAYS DIVIDENDS

Back in my high school days, plastic surgery wasn’t as mainstreamed as now. Yet one procedure often sought by teenage girls stands out: rhinoplasty, aka nose job.

DR. ZUBOWSKI SAYS: LIPOSUCTION MAY BE THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU

Envy: not necessarily the green-eyed monster when it provides positive motivation. People admiring the trim, shapely body of another person might be inspired to improve their own.

DR. ZUBOWSKI SAYS: DOING YOUR HOMEWORK APPLIES NOT ONLY TO PATIENTS

Until recently, when patients asked me what they could do about a double chin, I would tell them a facelift was their best option—and it still is if you want a single procedure that will give you the longest lasting results.

DR. ZUBOWSKI COUNSELS THAT LONGER EYELASHES ARE ALWAYS DESIRABLE

I’ve wanted to mention this subject ever since I wrote my first blog: it’s ironic, but men possess an advantage over women with respect to eyelashes: typically they have long, thick lashes, the very attribute considered to be an emblem of beauty in women. For centuries having long, thick, dark lashes have been a quality…

FOR SOME, NON-INVASIVE PROCEDURES DEFY AGE, DR.ZUBOWSKI SAYS

Reading an article about the increasing versatility of Botox™ reminded me just how far the field of cosmetic rejuvenation has advanced.

DR. ZUBOWSKI SAYS: ADDING YOUTHFULNESS TO AN AGING FACE IS NOW A QUICK FIX

As a plastic surgeon for over 25 years, I’m accustomed to patients asking how they can keep their appearance looking younger for a longer time.

WHY BREASTS SAG

Sagging is a normal part of how the body changes.
