It’s that time of year—the season we celebrate sun and fun!  It’s also a time when our wardrobe covers less and shows more and we want to hit the beach, attend pool parties, or go boating in a great-looking swim suit. Along with this, it’s no surprise that more people than ever before are toning up their beach body with a little liposuction, lifting things that have “headed South” for longer than the winter, and enhancing their figure with breast augmentation to help fill out summer tops or a bathing suit. If you’ve been longing to rock a hotter beach body, or simply want to feel and look better in your clothes, Charles A. Wallace, MD, FACS, is here to help you. click to read more

Fewer are practicing in the relative tranquility and direct accountability of solo-practice. A board certified specialist since 1992, native Texan and avid Long Horn Fan, Dr. Chris Kuhne keeps on doing what he’s done for years – giving each patient who walks through the door his undivided attention. It’s this, along with years of experience, his ability to listen, talent for investigation and ability to process new information, along with a huge dose of empathy that keeps generations of women coming to him year after year for all of their health care needs. click to read more

The blistering hot days of north texas are almost here. Even with three-digit record-breaking heat last year, we managed to get out and enjoy our summertime hanging out poolside, playing golf, boating, fishing, riding bicycles, and more.

If you think skin cancer happens to others but not you, consider this: One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime, and over 3.5 million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed this year with some type of skin cancer, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Those of us who live in the intense, bright sun of Texas, are especially at risk. click to read more

Are you thinking about getting liposuction to contour your curves, minimize love handles, and address those stubborn exercise- and diet-resistant pockets of fat? While you may be aware of the benefits liposuction offers, now there’s one more, and perhaps the most significant of all!

As a result of liposuction, you are given a key to access an exciting new kind of personal “bio insurance” that could have a huge impact on your future health and well-being. A type of insurance that David G. Genecov, MD, FACS, a renowned craniofacial plastic surgeon who is the co-founder and medical director of Dallas-based BioLife Cell Bank, believes is “the best kind of health insurance for the future that someone can buy.” You won’t be turned down and after a reasonable initial set-up fee the monthly cost is around what you would pay for three or four cappuccinos at your favorite coffee house. click to read more
