FROM THE BEDROOM TO THE BOARDROOM With LOIS W. STERN

From the bedroom to the boardroom, you can hear me speak candidly about my book, Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery, sharing provocative insights into the ways cosmetic surgery has impacted women’s lives. Who better would know than the one who embarked on this singular journey over ten years ago and then interviewed over one hundred patients and professionals to cull the material for this book?

A no holes barred interview with Don McCauley, host of The Authors Show – thoughtful, insightful, provocative, honest, . . . , to help women decide: “Is it for me?”, “What can I expect?”, “How do I choose?”, “Will I be happier?”

HIGH SCORES FOR LIPOSUCTION and ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCKS)

A newly published article in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reports the results of a quality of life study on patients who have undergone cosmetic liposuction and/or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedures to remove excess abdominal fat.

Three hundred sixty patients took part in this study, with 216 patients or 60 percent having only liposuction, 126 patients or 35%  undergoing a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty .

Liposuction plus abdominoplasty produced the highest patient satisfaction rate — more than 99 percent — with no increase in pain compared to abdominoplasty alone. Patients who had undergone abdominoplasty rated their outcomes at 9 out of 10, compared with the 8 out of 10 score for patients who had had liposuction only.

Overall, 86 percent of patients reported an improved sense of self-esteem after surgery, while about 70 percent reported improved quality of life.
