Description:

Tonight, my guest was Dr. Robert Grant, chief of plastic surgery at both Columbia and Cornell. We spoke about a new study that documented just how easy it is to cause blindness when wrinkle filler is injected in the upper portion of the face.  This is particularly important since States are now allowing non physicians such as dentists and nurses, to inject filler. Let the buyer beware.

We also spoke about the latest developments in facelift surgery - short scar lifts were proven to be as good as traditional long scar lifts, and perhaps tissue glue may decrease the rate of bleeding.  Tune in!
