Sex and The City and Plastic Surgery: Dr. Wigoda on Kim Cattrall

Last Thursday, three members of Hollywood’s most famous foursome gathered to at the New York Public Library to launch Sex in The City on DVD. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and the lovely Kim Cattrall gathered to celebrate and sip their signature cosmos.

Kim Cattrall’s “Samantha” is Sex and The City’s most bawdy and honest character. We can’t help but wonder… would she be honest about having cosmetic surgery? Kim is beautiful to be sure and will continue to be at any age.

Nevertheless, we asked Dr. Wigoda to give us his thoughts on the legendary Ms. Cattrall’s possible enhancements.

“Kim Cattrall is another actress who is not only very attractive but who also looks good for her age. However, she is showing signs of aging. In looking at this photo I can see that her forehead, glabella, and crows feet areas are fairly smooth for her age. This is a sign that she probably gets Botox in those areas. The areas that give away her true age are her lower eyelids, where the skin is somewhat thin and wrinkled, as well as her lower cheek areas where there is some skin laxity. Additionally, her nasolabial folds are fairly deep with full cheeks. This shows that she may have had a filler like Radiesse to fill the cheek area.

If she were to come to me for my opinion on what she needs to look even better, I would suggest the following: a face and neck lift to tighten the cheek and neck skin, a filler such as Radiesse to fill in the nasolabial folds, and possible surgery on her eyelids. I would continue the Botox as it seems to be working well for the upper face.“

Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgery Centers: How to Spot The Red Flags

With the increasing popularity of plastic surgery in the US, new “surgery centers” are appearing across South Florida with surprisingly low rates on popular procedures. Getting extremely affordable plastic surgery in Fort Lauderdale with an outpatient setting sounds like a dream right? Wrong.

These plastic surgery centers advertise “board certified” physicians and “exceptional facilities.” Often, neither is present on the premises. Typically, when encountering a discount “ cosmetic surgery center” patients experience something like this:

“These local plastic surgery centers advertise board certified physicians on staff; however, this it is not always the case. One surgeon out of the group may be certified and he or she usually performs the evaluation,” said The Aesthetics Institute owner, Dr. Paul Wigoda. “On surgery day however, the surgeon is not the same physician the patient met with and is usually not board certified.”

As far as South Florida plastic surgery centers are concerned, Dr. Wigoda stresses that they often have the bare minimum of equipment, poor sanitation, and lack proper credentials from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).

So, how can you spot the red flags?

•    Ask about your Doctor’s credentials and if he or she is board certified. If on the day of your surgery the doctor is not who you originally were evaluated by, leave and contact the Florida Board of Medicine to file a complaint.
•    Surgery consultations should never be done over the phone. Physicians need to evaluate you in person to determine how to treat you.
•    Proper hygiene and sanitation should always be employed. If the facilities seem dirty or dated, get out!
•    In general, excessive and overt advertising is always a red flag. Good surgeons rely on more traditional methods of patient recruitment including word-of-mouth referrals.

Most importantly, if you decide to have cosmetic surgery, do your research. Quality surgeons will be more than happy to answer questions and address concerns. Get referrals from past patients and be sure to evaluate your surgeon’s credentials.

Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgeon Reports on Botox Cosmetics

Dr. Wigoda Featured as Expert Source on Botox

Pharmawire, the nation’s largest news wire service devoted to news and trends in the pharmaceutical industry, has turned to Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Wigoda to provide them with expert insight on Botox and it’s newest competitor Reloxin.

Dr. Wigoda discussed the competition between the two brands and the growth in the market that has occurred despite recent economic troubles in the US. However, Dr. Wigoda predicted that if Reloxin works as well as Botox, Allergan would need to drop the prices on Botox to remain competitive.

Dr. Wigoda went on to explain that the decisions of which product doctors will use come down to three things: what it does, how long it lasts, and how much it costs.

“When a competitor comes in, doctors will try it,” he said.
