Knowing More About Liposuction with Dr. Fardad

fardad.jpg


Beverly Hills based Board-Certified Surgeon & one of the country’s top cosmetic surgeons Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour “Dr. Fardad” joins the show.


Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode!


Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour (“Dr. Fardad”) is a world-renowned physician whose work speaks for itself.  Founder of the Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group, Dr. Fardad currently does double duties overseeing his own medical practice and running a Surgical Fellowship training plastic and cosmetic surgeons from all over the world.

Dr. Fardad’s passion for medicine developed early in life. Inspired by the work of his father, a Jewish doctor who regularly donated medical services to the poor, Dr. Fardad set out to become a local physician in his native Iran.

The political and religious climates in Iran interfered.  Revolution was everywhere, and anti-Semitism was rampant. After finding bullet holes in the door of his medical office, Dr. Fardad’s father made the courageous decision to move his young family to America.

In less than two years, Dr. Fardad was accepted into UCLA’s prestigious Pre-Med Program. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

Dr. Fardad attended medical school at Midwestern University in Chicago. He initially studied pediatrics, but fell in love with surgery and aesthetics and its ability to dramatically improve people’s lives.

Dr. Fardad performed five years of Surgical Residencies in General Surgery and Trauma Surgery at Chicago’s top hospitals including Edgwater, Thorak, and Cook County Hospital. He also served as Chief Surgical Resident at Columbia Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital, Trauma and Medical Center.

Dr. Fardad completed his first Fellowship in Facial and Body Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery under former President of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr Richard Caleel.  He then returned to Southern California to perform a second Fellowship, with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Bernard Koire.

In 1998, Dr. Fardad founded his own shingle, The Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group. The full-service surgery center offers non-invasive procedures along with breast augmentations, lifts & reductions, eyelash transfers, rhinoplasties, liposuctions/liposculpture, abdominoplasties, and vaginoplasties, among others.

Dr. Fardad has set the standard for excellence in cosmetic surgery. Boarded in General Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Fardad is one of only three physicians in Southern California authorized by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery to operate a Fellowship Program.  He trains plastic and cosmetic surgeons from all across the globe.

Dr. Fardad is also the inventor of the Umbilical Locator, a surgical device he designed to help surgeons locate the belly button during abdominoplasties.  A common challenge for cosmetic and plastic surgeons, the Umbilical Locator has resolved a medical problem for which plastic surgeons had often found themselves being sued.

Following in his late father’s footsteps, Dr. Fardad regularly donates his medical services to those in need.  He works with the Los Angeles based domestic violence charity, Safe Passage, providing free surgical makeovers to abuse victims to help restore their self-confidence.

Dr. Fardad is a member of the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery, the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons Society, the California Medical Association, the Osteopathic Physician and Surgeons of California, the American Osteopathic Association, the Los Angeles County Medical Association and is a Diplomat of the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners.

BIGGEST mistakes patients make with plastic surgery with Dr. Mauro Romita

mauro.jpg


Dr. Mauro C. Romita, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with over twenty years' experience in the field of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery joins the show.


Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode!


Mauro C. Romita, MD is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with over twenty years' experience in the field of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery of the face, breast and body, micro and cranio-facial surgery. Dr. Romita is known for the technical skill, training, and integrity that he brings to his patients and in his surgical practice.

Following graduation from the University of Miami School of Medicine, Dr. Romita began his residency training at New York University Medical Center. He completed a comprehensive eight-year program in June of 1981, which included postgraduate fellowships in microsurgery and crainiofacial surgery. Dr. Romita is certifed by the American Boards of General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. Dr. Romita is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and numerous professional societies. He is also an Assistant Professor of Surgery at New York Medical College.

Conveniently located on New York's exclusive Fifth Avenue, Dr. Romita's state-of-the-art surgical suite is a safe alternative to a hospital setting for most aesthetic procedures. More extensive surgery may also be performed at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, St. Vincent's Hospital and Medical Center and New York Medical Center in Queens.

Dr. Romita has helped pioneer a unique approach to reversing the aging process through keen appreciation of the synergy among medical disciplines. The guiding force of his approach is a concept called "sequential intervention," whereby the early signs of aging are corrected with less invasive techniques for as long as possible. Progressively more complex surgical enhancements are introduced only when they are necessary and when the benefits can be maximized. According to Dr. Romita, "The goal of modern plastic surgery is to preserve a youthful appearance when possible and restore only when necessary to achieve a natural-looking, harmonious result."

Dr. Romita has published numerous papers in the field of Reconstructive Microsurgery and Trauma. He has been named one of New York Magazine's "Best Doctors in New York" and is listed in Castle Connolly Medical's 1999 edition of "How to Find the Best Doctors In the New York Metro Area".

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Dr. Rebecca Smith


Eric Michaels: We're in the middle of a very rough winter and it seems that a lot of people are complaining about unusually dry, cracked skin.  What do you think is causing this dry skin?


Dr. Smith: There are different levels of dryness and potential skin conditions.  In general, the red, itchy and dry skin that people experience is called eczema.  Eczema can range from basic dry skin all the way to skin conditions like atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.   In the winter months skin may get very dehydrated and chapped, so people may see red, rough, itchy patches that have the potential to crack and bleed.  As dermatologists, the most important step we initiate with these people is the restoration of their skin's outermost barrier.


Eric Michaels: What is this skin barrier that you mentioned?
Dr. Smith: Explains barrier and barrier components.


Eric Michaels: Is there anything new that people should know about in terms of treatment?
Dr. Smith: A new class of products has emerged from recent research into eczema and atopic dermatitis. These products have been designed to specifically help with skin barrier restoration. The most well-known product in this class is EpiCeram Skin Barrier Emulsion. EpiCeram Emulsion was designed specifically to address a defective skin barrier by replenishing ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids in an optimal ratio.  Based on a significant amount of research at the University of California, EpiCeram Emulsion was formulated in an optimal manner to supply the skin barrier with the proper building blocks to restore its healthy function.


Eric Michaels: Do children experience eczema too? How can parents tell if their child is having a problem?  Is it all visual or are there other signs?
Dr. Smith: Children often experience a form of eczema called atopic dermatitis. The red, rough, itchy dry patches are present, but a child, especially a very young infant, may also cry and lose sleep. The best way to determine if a child has atopic dermatitis is to visit a local dermatologist when the rash is present. A quick visual check by a trained physician is all that is usually required to diagnosis and properly treat the child.


Eric Michaels: Besides treatment with topical products like EpiCeram Emulsion, what can people do for themselves or their children?
Dr. Smith: There are several daily skin care changes that can dramatically improve the signs and symptoms of eczema.  These include using non-irritating soaps and cleansers, only bathing once a day, limiting the amount of rubbing and touching of the irritated areas and avoiding common irritants around the house.  Try to use a moisturizer once a day as well.

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Dr. Jessica Krant


Eric Michaels: There's so much talk these days about wrinkles and skin aging. What's in a wrinkle?


Dr. Krant: Wrinkles form as a combination of a few factors. On the face, there are two type of wrinkles - dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form over areas that are creased by the use of facial muscles of expression like the crows feet on the side of the eyes or the horizontal lines of the forehead. Static wrinkles form over areas that don't have specific underlying muscle movement like the middle of the cheek or on the lower eye lids - we don't start out with either one of these kinds of wrinkles but as we get older all three layers of our skin age...


Eric Michaels: How can we avoid creating wrinkles?


Dr. Krant: Of course the best way to minimize wrinkles is to prevent them. The wrinkles you see now are a result of when you went out in the sun when you were a kid so mom's, find a sun screen that you are most comfortable with and put it in your kids and teach them to wear sun protective clothing and to avoid sunburns. Grown ups, it's not true that all the damage is done in your teens which I hear all the time again and skin cancer are caused by accumulative damage over time - so all additional sun exposure does increase your risk...


Eric Michaels: But if someone wants to be tan, isn't it true that indoor tanning is much safer?


Dr. Krant: No! Indoor tanning beds are not safe - period! In fact the indoor tanning industry was recently chastised for false safety claims and Congress and the FDA are requiring stronger and more definitive warning labels posted more on all tanning machines. In many states it has been made illegal for minors to tan without written consent signed and in person by the parents...

Edited Transcript of Interview with Bill D’Alessandro & Clay Iman

Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode.


Eric Michaels: So I've seen a ton of people with tiny red bumps on their arms and thighs - what causes them?
Bill D'Alessandro: Those little red bumps are clogged hair folicles, and they're casued by a skin condition called keratosis pilaris (KP). KP is a skin condition that affects 50% of all adults and 80% of teens. It means that your body produces too much of a protein called keratin, which is the basic building block of hair, skin, and nails. That extra keratin builds up on the skin and plugs the hair follicles, which irritates them and causes those raised, red bumps. Typically people with KP have between 10 and 100 bumps scattered in and area, most commonly the upper arms and thighs. KP is not acne, so you can't treat it with acne medicine. You'll also hear keratosis pilaris referred to as "chicken skin".


Eric Michaels: What can people do to clear up their keratosis pilaris?
Clay Iman: Well you need something that is going to moisturize the skin, break down those keratin plugs in the follicles, and encourage the skin to turn over and produce new, healthy skin cells. You can find a lot of old wives tales on the internet about how to treat KP, but the best way is to use an all-in-one product specifically designed to treat keratosis pilaris. I'll take the opportunity here to throw in a shamless plug for our product, KP Elements, which is all natural and specifically designed to clear up keratosis pilaris.


Eric Michaels: So can KP be cured?
Clay Iman: Since KP is a genetic condition, it can’t be permanently cured. However, it can be very easily treated and cleared up indefinitely by keeping your skin moisturized and supplied with specific vitamins and omega 3 acids that help suppress KP. KP Elements includes everything you need to banish KP forever with just a single daily application.


Eric Michaels: So tell me more about your company - what made you want to create this product?
Bill D'Alessandro: Well, I actually have KP myself, and have my whole life. I'd tried everything, and nothing was working. So I did a ton of research - what was working for people? I scoured the internet and found a bunch of people using foot creams, face creams, stuff from their pantries, stuff from their gardens - tons of things they claimed cleared up KP. There wasn't anything out there designed to treat keratosis pilaris, so people were trying all kinds of things. So I gathered all of these remedies and said to myself - what do they have in common? In consultation with some chemists and dermatologists, I was able to create KP Elements, which combines 11 of the most effective natural treatments for KP with a powerful moisturizer and exfoliant. It's absolutely the best treatment out there for keratosis pilaris - a combination of science and nature.


Eric Michaels: What are some of the challenges you’ve encountered creating a product and bringing it to market?
Clay Iman: Well the first thing we learned is that everything takes longer than you think. We had to go through several revisions of our formula to make sure we had the ingredients absolutely right and perfectly balanced. We also took great pains to make sure that our product was gentle and natural – we had to exclude several ingredients that are common in other skincare products but can cause skin irritation. The biggest takeaway for us was to keep plugging – each day you get a little bit closer, and eventually you’ve got a great product you can be proud of.
