The Premiere Site For Celebrity Plastic Surgery By A Real Plastic Surgeon

I'm a Michigan-based Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been featured on Dr. 90210. The info here is my opinion alone and should not be taken as fact or as medical advice. I've not treated any of the celebrities presented here.

Star Jones



Star Jones has reportedly undergone a breast lift and tummy tuck recently while on break from the View. Unfortunately, sources are reporting that she had a major postoperative bleeding complication. This necessitated her being transported to St. John's Medical Center in Santa Monica for blood transfusions. This is a very unusual complication, but can happen to anyone. I am very hesitant to perform tummy tucks at the same time as breast lifts for this very reason. It is a lot of surgery for someone to undergo, and depending on the surgeon's technique, could be dangerous. Hopefully she will undergo a full recovery.

Tony,

You're spot on with your observations re. safety with these combined procedures. I have a hard time recomending procedures I expect will take in excess of 5 hours of general anesthesia. Ideally you have at least 2 surgeons working simultaneously to do these cases.

I will go up to 7 hours for a healthy patient undergoing facial surgery, but when body surgery is performed I limit myself to 6 hours max. Safety should always be the top priority for every plastic surgeon. Unfortunately, this is too often not the case!
