Episode Description

Having a breast augmentation, liposuction or a face lift can be very exciting. But as much some people are excited about their new look, having a cosmetic procedure can be stressful. Sometimes the recovery process can be challenging and not everyone is fully prepared for the experience. This week we will discuss the psychological aspects of having cosmetic procedure. We have a great panel starting with David Sarwer, PhD., An expert in the psychology of appearance with a special interest in weight loss. In addition we will have James Claiborn, PhD., An expert in body dysmorphic syndrome. And rounding out the panel will be Jack Fisher, MD, President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, who will provide decades of expertise in caring for aesthetic patients. Listen in to a terrific discussion of this fascinating topic. As always you can call the show at 866-472-5792 to have your question ns answered on the air.
