Liposuction is my least favorite procedure. It’s boring. I hate it. As long as you don’t do something catastrophically bad, like perforate the colon, it’s totally mindless. It’s also totally oversold. It’s not a cure for obesity, even though a lot of people think it is. It’s an operation for thin people who have pockets of fat that are stubborn and don’t go away. If you’re actually overweight, it doesn’t work. You cannot remove enough fat, and if you do, then they have extra skin. Fifty percent of people who come in for lipo, I tell them they don’t need it. But you have a lot of practitioners who do lipo who aren’t plastic-trained surgeonsand if they’re overaggressive in how they liposuct, they can get all that rippling where the skin has this sort of waviness to it. And that’s very, very hard to correct. Then there are variants to liposuction like smart lipo and laser lipo. Supposedly they break up the fat cells better to increase your yield. Mind you, none of them have actually been proven to be better. The only thing that’s been proven is it can shorten operating time.

Botox takes minutes. That’s why people love doing it. The amount of money you can make and the amount of time you spend is unparalleled. You can make as much money Botoxing someone’s face in ten minutes as you can do in a two- or three-hour operation. The majority of women who come in for that are exceptionally savvy. They’ve had it done before. Some of them will tell you how much of it they want. And that is when you are completely a technician. You’re just like a cog.

Rhinoplasty is my favorite. It’s like you’re a sculptor. It’s a very difficult operation to do wella millimeter or two millimeters more or less is a vast, vast difference. But rhinoplasty is one procedure that if people were to see it, they would not have it done. The whole skeleton of the nose has to be manipulated. It’s bloody, because the nose is supervascular. You fracture the nose with your hand, and you’ll hear it when you’re in the ORI mean, it cracks, just like if you punch someone in the face. Then you set those bones back to the position that you want. Then you do more intricate work like trimming the cartilagesand if you over-trim, then the nose is very hard to recover. You use all the primitive tools: like a hammer, a chisel, a rasp, which is like a file. And you can completely botch it. If you over-reset any of the elements, you can get collapse of the nose. There are people who specialize in just doing secondary and tertiary rhinoplasties because lots of rhinoplasties go bad.
