I was disappointed with Dr. Oz when I recently saw this episode:
As a cardiothoracic surgeon, I hold him to a higher standard in providing objective medical information to the public. I expect most talk shows to sensationalize new medical procedures, televise clips that lack objectivity, and propagate misinformation. I didn’t think Dr. Oz would do the same.
There is no current technology that replaces a traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Laser liposuction, radiofrequency, and ultrasonic devices all fall short in delivering the results that a traditional abdominoplasty can. The best, and most reliable, way to treat damaged excess skin is to cut it out!
I find it hilarious that they fully expose the patient’s abdomen preoperatively, yet they cover it almost completely postoperatively. The reason is because there is a large amount of unsightly excess skin tucked into that women’s undergarment.
If the procedure was really so great, why wouldn’t they expose her entire abdomen exactly the way it was preoperatively? What are they hiding?
Another media scam!
