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.

An interesting article in Yahoo News describes a facelift being performed by acupuncture. Practitioners claim that it stimulates collagen production, lifts sagging skin, and is as effective as Botox.
But seriously, I know very little about this, although my mother has been trained in acupuncture and acupressure. She's used it on me on more than one occasion with variable results. I do believe there is real validity to some of its benefits which cannot be explained by science. That being said, I've never seen actual results from Acupuncture Facelifts, and would be interested to see some before-and-after photos. In the meantime, I will stick with actually putting something into the needles I poke a person with. If any readers have anecdotal stories about this, feel free to share.
Thanks for reading.
