Episode Description

Alan Bienstock, MD, MPH, is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon who views cosmetic procedures as opportunities to augment, rather than substitute for wellness practices. Dr. Bienstock recommends health-supporting steps in both invasive and noninvasive treatment plans to optimize outcomes. While some may seek plastic surgery to address issues such as excess weight, depression, and aging, Dr. B. suggests that surgical results, including recovery and sustained benefits, can be compromised without adequate self-care. Self-care is an important criterion in his assessment of candidates for cosmetic procedures. If you're considering plastic surgery, tune in to hear Dr. B.'s suggestions and scenarios from his own practice that demonstrate the interaction between wellness and results.
