Plastic Surgery 101

After 10 years of writing column, readers still comment

Q. As I pass my 10-year anniversary writing this column, I want to thank everybody who has read it. I want to thank the people who encouraged me by writing in questions and making positive comments.

I also want to thank the people who have written me not-so-nice questions and/or comments — even that inspires me! I will continue to write this column as long as there are questions that people would like to have answered and as long as the technology that drives the aesthetic market continues to grow.

Over the years, I have recognized that many aspects of running a successful practice and writing a successful column is to be able to recognize and deal with the psychosocial aspects of plastic surgery. I will continue to explore these aspects in my future columns (don't think I've gone psycho on you).

I encourage you all to continue to write in questions and make comments, both negative and positive, as this will help me improve.

Thank you, again, and we will resume with questions during my next column.

    Online reviews are only one tool in choosing a doctor

    Q. I’m planning to have surgery with a surgeon whom I met and really liked. My friends told me he was great, and a lot of people have substantiated that. When I started to do research, I did find one or two reviews online that were not flattering. What is your suggestion with this, and should I let him operate on me?

    There’s more than one way to correct droopy brows

    Q. I went to see a doctor because I thought my brows were very droopy. I have a very big forehead and he told me the only way he could do that surgery was an endoscopic forehead lift. I'm worried because even though I told him about my concerns of my large forehead he told me that there was no other way to do it. Can you tell me if that's true and what my options are?

    Dr. Carlos Wolf: Are you ever too old for plastic surgery?

    Q. I am nearing 74 years of age and am thinking of having some plastic surgery. I know that you and probably lots of my family think I must be crazy, but I feel much younger than I look. What do you think? Quite frankly, I’m tired of all those fillers, and I’d like something more permanent!
