CNN recently aired an Oprah.com interview with a successful CEO woman who claims to have had 12 cosmetic procedures while becoming a successful investment banker on Wall Street. The Orange County Register highlighted the news story focusing on the specific procedures which ranged from rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, blepharoplasty, brow lift among other procedures. While this story makes great water cooler talk the reality is this woman’s story is not that unusual. The fact that she had two rhinoplasty surgeries is not that unusual when nationally rhinoplasty has the highest reoperation rate of all cosmetic surgeries. The facial rejuvenation procedures that she had performed are typically performed within one operation. She enjoyed a successful career with her most youthful appearance going for her. So, it’s difficult to see why this story is considered news. Dr. Kim treats many patients who over the years have had multiple procedures. They are not freaks, or outcast, only patients who as they age desire to maintain their best appearance. Most patients do not regret their decision to invest in cosmetic plastic surgery. It is doubtful that this particular woman deep down inside would trade the much improved appearance for her natural aging appearance. Dr. Kim performs his procedures with patient safety, health, and results as the main goals.
