2012 Wrap Up!

December 20, 2012
With the holidays quickly approaching, we are all reflecting on the past year and our growth at Blair Plastic Surgery. This year, we watched the Myelinators raise more money than ever before during the Keystone Country Bike Ride to benefit the National MS Society. The fall brought us the first annual BRA Day with our staff raising awareness of breast reconstruction options after mastectomy. The technology at Blair Plastic Surgery remained cutting edge with the additions of both the  FotoFinder and TouchMD. The Fotofinder has given our staff the ability to offer skin surveillance to our patients to aid in the detection and early intervention of solar cancers. With TouchMD, patients… Read Full Post

Discount Botox

November 05, 2012
I love coupons.  I grew up in a house where we only bought the breakfast cereals my mother had coupons for, and I swore I would never be like that – but I guess we all become our mother sometime.  However, a coupon for your favorite Kellogg’s cereal is completely different than a group discount site (think Groupon) offering deals on Botox and other injectables.  Recently, a group discount site (who shall remain nameless) had an offer for "20 Units of Botox.” For $165.00, they were offering 20 units of Botox (about enough for one site).  Our office charges $300 a site – sounds like a pretty good deal, right? Wrong…According to Dr. Robert Louton, “Plastic surgeons most… Read Full Post
