PITTSBURGH, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Dennis Hurwitz F.A.C.S., founder of the Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery, and Clinical Professor of Surgery (Plastic) at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School was featured today on the hit medical show "The Doctors". Dr. Hurwitz discussed the first few stages of an extreme patient makeover he performed on a local Pittsburgh resident.
The extreme makeover started five years ago on a now 53-year old woman who was looking to refine her overall appearance after severe weight fluctuations. It consisted of a total body lift of the arms, breasts and upper body, followed by a face and brow lift and liposuction of the neck.
Dr. Hurwitz commented, "The lifts were able to correct many of this woman's main concerns including her excess skin following gastric bypass surgery and lack of neck definition. However, there are a few other enhancements we recommend she make to finalize the makeover. She has deep nasolabial folds between her nose and mouth and we believe is an excellent candidate for Artefill, a long-lasting dermal filler we use extensively on our patients who want to remove these wrinkles for good. We also believe she could benefit from life style coaching, therapy with Neil Griebling and cosmetic dentistry, which is being provided by Dr. S. Rand Werrin."
Christine, who is now going by Tina, said, "It has been just a few weeks since my face and brow lifts but I already feel and look amazing. I spent years always feeling like the most unattractive person in the room and look forward to buying some new make-up and clothes to show off the new me."
