Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Releases Collection of Educational Plastic Surgery Articles
October 07, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsWith reality shows, news reports, and celebrities undergoing procedures, plastic surgery has never been more popular. Its hold on the public's imagination is also at an all-time high. But clear and accurate information on plastic surgery can be hard to come by. One Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon is seeking to change this, by releasing a series of educational articles written for the general public.
Dr. Lloyd Krieger, medical director of Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, located on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, has the goal of providing essential background for people considering plastic surgery. "I always find that the most informed patients are my happiest patients. My goal with these articles is to create more informed patients."
Dr. Krieger has long held a second career as a freelance essayist and writer, with his articles appearing in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Barron's, and many other publications. But until recently he had not written articles geared toward plastic surgery patients. So why launch this large-scale project now? Dr. Krieger notes that the times call for it: "We are having more and more patients come in for plastic surgery. We even have about 30% of our patients fly in to see us from out of state. With all of this interest, it just seems appropriate to provide people with as much information and plastic surgery facts as possible."
Some of the topics covered by Dr. Krieger's articles include preparing for cosmetic surgery, recovery from breast augmentation, trends in ethnic plastic surgery, the current state of plastic surgery for men, and the history of liposuction or liposculpture. Some of the articles provide general background information, such as the article "Ten Questions to Ask Your Cosmetic Surgeon." Others provide details about specific procedures, such as the piece penned by Dr. Krieger called, "Seven Tummy Tuck Facts." Dr. Krieger's goal is to provide a healthy mix: "I wanted to have some pieces for people early in the process of investigating plastic surgery, and others for those who are more advanced and are deciding about a specific procedure."
Dr. Krieger notes that the articles will be helpful for people seeking large procedures such as Los Angeles tummy tuck and smaller procedures such as Los Angeles Botox. More information can be found by accessing the web site on plastic surgery articles.
