Cosmetic surgery is the Wild West of Medicine.
It seems every day I read a new story about popular cosmetic procedures that we used to believe were safe and effective, only to realize that they have complications we hadn’t known about. There are also cosmetic treatments being touted as the newest, best thing, but in reality, just don’t work.
So, for this podcast, I’ve compiled a list of seven popular cosmetic treatments that I highly recommend you avoid. These seven are part of my Holistic Beauty Blacklist. They are among the most popular cosmetic treatments today, but I do not recommend them due to their risks of death, disfigurement, or the fact that they just don’t work.
Yet, shockingly, they are being performed every day all over the country, often by inexperienced hands. This is a scary episode, but one that should be listened to by anyone considering going under the knife or needle. Please join me as I reveal The Holistic Beauty Blacklist – Popular Cosmetic Treatments to Avoid.
Did you know that you can reshape your nose without having surgery? Or that you can get rid of a banana roll of the thighs using simple injections? Or have you heard that Sculptra injections are a reasonable alternative to fat transfer to the buttocks?

On this episode, I’m joined by one the leaders of the minimally-invasive trend in cosmetic medicine. We will discuss these procedures and a whole lot more, including which injectable fillers she and I recommend, and those which we warn you to stay away from.

It’s estimated that over 20 million American women suffer from some form of thinning hair or hair loss. It’s especially common in women over 65, with a whopping 50% affected by this condition. We all know that there are a plethora of interventions to treat the symptoms of hair loss, but these treatments don’t necessarily get to the root cause, which is often hormonal.
On this episode of The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show, I’m joined by a naturopathic physician and hormone expert. We reveal the most common causes of hair loss in women, from androgen excess to insulin resistance to nutritional deficiencies, and how to treat them naturally. We’ll reveal what blood tests your doctor should be getting, what supplements you should consider taking, and what natural topical options can take the place of pharmaceuticals like Rogaine.

Breast Implant Illness (BII) is a controversial and hot topic in plastic surgery today.
Although the FDA lifted the moratorium on silicone breast implants in 2006, declaring them safe, there is a rapidly growing movement of women who believe their breast implants are making them sick. Headaches, brain fog, muscle aches, arthritis, hair loss – the list of symptoms attributed to breast implants is long. For some women, these symptoms can be life-altering and debilitating. And some of them are undergoing drastic operations to treat it.
