It s absolutely amazing how powerful books are. Walking around Hogwarts village today at Universal Studios made me think of J. K. Rowling and what she has created by reading, believing, and writing. She lived in poverty before finishing her first Harry Potter book that turned into a world wide success selling over 400 million copies. It s so inspirational and made me think of this quote: "I don t believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book." - J.K. Rowling #harrypotter

Big city girl. I grew up in Delaware (you can say I m almost a country girl), lived in Boston throughout my Harvard college days and finally Los Angeles captured my heart. I moved here full of dreams and ambition. I absolutely loved it from the very start. Most people were from somewhere else and drawn to LA by their dreams. Many times, I have felt like an outsider when I wasn t in school or in the hospital. I remember that one time I rushed into a coffee shop during my 3rd year medical school rotation wearing my white coat and someone told me, it s not Halloween yet (granted - it was October). When I explained that it wasn t a costume, they actually argued with and questioned me because they couldn t imagine I was actually in medical school or doctor in training. I went to the same coffee shop just a few weeks ago, got a coffee, sat down and smiled, remembering the journey, hard work, sacrifice, and all the people who tried to discourage me but also the people who helped me in my quest to becoming a surgeon. 20 years later, all my dreams have come true and being a surgeon is better and more rewarding than I ever imagined it would be. Dreams do come true! I love LA ❀ #dreambig #plasticsurgeon

The New Year often brings a desire for change and for action. Often that desire is related to transforming one s appearance. The decision to undergo plastic surgery is usually not taken lightly and for many this is one of the biggest life decisions. Therefore it is very very important to choose your surgeon wisely, to educate and inform yourself, and to also be clear and understand what your reasons are for seeking plastic surgery procedures. There are many reasons why people consider plastic surgery. Contrary to what many people think, patients don t always seek plastic and cosmetic surgery for the aesthetic purposes and benefits. Many plastic surgery procedures can improve your physical and mental health as well as your looks. For example, the breast reduction surgery that is shown in this video improves the body s shape and proportions, but it may also relieve physical discomfort like neck and back pain and skin irritation from disproportionately large breasts. Many patients feel more comfortable and less self conscious due to the new feelings of self-confidence their new look inspires. It is not unusual to feel greater control over your life, become more willing to take on new challenges, or take charge of your life in a whole new way. I have performed many tummy tucks and labiaplasties (vaginal rejuvenation and cosmetic surgery) and almost every patient has reported a tremendous increase their quality of life, dating, and their relationships. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports of the 1.7 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2015, the top 5 were: Breast augmentation (279,143 procedures) Liposuction (222,051 procedures) Nose reshaping (217,979 procedures) Eyelid surgery (203,934 procedures) Tummy tuck (127,967 procedures) The procedures in this video are some of my latest before and after photos of patients I saw last week. Note that some of them are taken only a few weeks post surgery which is why there is still some swelling or steristrips. Make sure to follow me on Snapchat for daily live videos and Q&As.

When it comes to skincare, consistency is key. I never skip a day cleansing my skin and applying my night moisturizer. I never skip a day applying my day moisturizer and sunsceeen and I exfoliate consistently twice a week with my scrub. Just like you brush your teeth every day, take a shower, caring for your skin with consistent maintenance is just as important! That is why I have created a complete and easy to follow essentials kit that every woman can use. There is a DAY and NIGHT moisturizer, daily cleanser, and scrub for extra exfoliation. I also know that if products are sticky, greasy, or smelly it s hard to force yourself to use them. That is why MD GLAM @mdglam products absorb quickly, are non greasy, smell fresh, and feel amazing! You will look forward to applying them and really feel like you are pampering yourself. Some of you have asked me if I use my own MD GLAM skincare line. Of course!! That s primarily why I created it. I was tired of trying different products that didn t work or that I didn t like. Also, patients and friends always asked me what products they should use and I could never recommend anything because I needed to believe in them 100% and know that they were effective. Since I am a scientist with a background in molecular biology, I care about the actual scientific data. I always wanted to know the exact ingredients since little details like the pH, ingredients stability, chemical formula, and ingredient particle size matter. I m sure by know you know how picky and OCD I am about all the details!! I m absolutely obsessed and in love with my products and I want to thank all of you who have expressed the same enthusiasm in your reviews and positive feedback! @mdglam #mdglam

Thank you everyone for all your DM s. I really appreciate all the comments and questions I receive! I thought it might be helpful to provide some general guidelines for everyone so you can get the information you need. 1. For pricing and quotes the best thing is to set up a consultation. Every patient s anatomy is different and often patients need a different surgery than what they think. For example sometimes patients are interested in liposuction but actually need a tummy tuck, or they want breast implants but actually need a lift. The OR time also varies based on each person s anatomy. My office can give rough estimates for each particular so please call or email the office for one. 2. Scheduling. For any scheduling questions please call or email the office. Also, please plan ahead. My next available appointment is end of March/April and I book surgeries several months in advance after that initial visit. If you do have a special occasion like a wedding or reunion or if you are traveling, we always try to accommodate patients - please let us know if this is the case - the sooner you can schedule the better. We also have a waiting list so if you want to be put on the waiting list let us know. The consultation fee is $350 and it is applied to any procedure you schedule. The consultation fee is required to schedule an appointment. This ensures a commitment for patients to show up to their consultations and also that they are serious about having a procedure. We cannot do free consults because I do all consultations myself and there are limited appointment slots since I m in surgery 3-4 days a week, so patients who are serious about having a procedure have to be prioritized. Otherwise patients would have to wait forever to get an appointment! 3. If you have had surgery with another surgeon and are having post op issues or concerns - please contact your own doctor. 4. For general questions and Q&A suggestions- I love these! I will try to answer as many questions as I can. I hope that helps!!! Thanks again for all your questions, comments and support! #plasticsurgery #plasticsurgeon #mdglam #beverlyhills

Never let other people s negativity and manners affect your mood or who you are. It s very rare we can change people but we can always adjust our reactions to what they say or do. That s too much power to give away. Many times life and karma will take care of them. Don t let them dull your sparkle. ❀ #keepsmiling #keepshining #md

Many people ask me what it feels like to make the first cut of one of my surgeries. Every time I start a surgery and make that first incision, I am filled with immense gratitude that someone has put their trust in my hands and I feel blessed and privileged to do something to change their life. I love operating, I look forward to every surgery and enjoy the process of transformation. Today was my first surgery after the holiday and I was really looking forward to being back in the operating room. I performed a tummy tuck on a very thin and fit woman who had a lot of excess skin and also loosening of the abdominal muscles after 4 pregnancies. She already looks amazing and I am so excited for her. You can watch the surgery on my Snapchat πŸ‘»beautybydrcat and also some clips on Instagram stories. #plasticsurgery #tummytuck
