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.

Quick links

Here are some quick links to take up time while you are relaxing at home...

1. If you are on Facebook, take the True Age Test. They ask you 20 questions about yourself and determine the true age of your body from the results. According to this test I am 17 years old! Then why do I feel 50 today? (Must be the five days of surgery in the last seven days...)

2. Click here to view a television segment on the Beverly Hills radiologist who fashioned himself a liposuction guru. There is a warrant out for his arrest, and now he is somewhere in South America. After you go to the CBS site, type in "Raid" and/or "Bittner" to view the segments on Dr. Alan Bittner.

3. Are Guns N' Roses Bringing Back Plastic Surgery? Check out for their post on the Gunners (I've asked for Chinese Democracy for Christmas).

Thanks for reading.

Was the Dr. Alan Bittner board certified?

If he is, it's in radiology. Quite often that's how phony plastic surgeons try to advertise themselves to deceive the public. They'll put "Board-certified" in their ads but not state what it is they are certified in. Radiology? ER? ENT? It's not the same as a real plastic surgeon.

Why does the Plastic Surgery Board allow "just any" physician to perform cosmetic surgeries or procedures? To even open up a "cosmetic or plastics" clinic, the physician should be required to meet certain specialty standards. And why aren't there outpatient clinic surveys (such as JCAHO)? There seem to be more stringent control measures for car mechanics and Jiffy Lubes!!!

The plastic surgery board has no control over physicians who are not plastic surgeons. It's the state medical boards that do, and they have done relatively little to protect patients from phony plastic surgeons.
