Is it worth it?

The decision to choose any medical intervention can often be fraught with difficulty. Too little information and we might feel we don’t know enough to make a choice, too much and we are often paralysed with information overload. As a doctor I am frequently trying to give my clients the best information with which to make decisions about […]

Face facts

When considering facial rejuvenation, one of the key aspects of creating a more natural look is understanding the architecture of the face. Restoring volume without any consideration of the surrounding structures is likely to give an unusual appearance. During my recent visit to the CCR expo the recurring theme was all about understanding facial structure and assessing the […]

When our divine creator was handing out methods of keeping our bodies cool, he could not (perhaps) have foreseen the follicular fallout from bestowing sweat glands upon his human subjects.

Call me Caitlyn

The whirlwind of positive sentiment that has accompanied Bruce Jenner’s spectacular transformation into Caitlyn has been most heart warming. It reflects a society that is increasingly intolerant of the intolerant. Hand in hand with the Republic of Ireland’s “Yes” vote for gay marriage the marginalised of society are increasingly having their voices heard.

You may recently have heard about the age guessing website doing the rounds on social media – a website that doesn’t really need much explaining. Pop in your picture and then bam!
