Working Out After Surgery

Published on December 9, 2016 by
Working out after surgery

Many patients ask me when they can workout after surgery. Although the exact time frame varies slightly from surgery to surgery, there are some general guidelines.

Leave Taylor Swift alone!

Published on July 27, 2016 by

Recently, Taylor Swift has been seen sporting a larger bust-line. There’s speculation that she got breast augmentation. I think people and the media should leave Taylor Swift alone about her possible breast augmentation surgery.
