repair and reconstruction of toenail bed

General Reconstruction

I am looking for someone to repair my damaged toenail bed & matrix. I am a R.N. and worked through the Covid Pandemic even though nails/ nail beds were painful/pressure. I didn't miss one day of work. My toenails hurt all the time; but I'm told my nails are not ingrown but that my nail matrix/bed/scars need repair. I'm willing to pay on my own. I just need to find a doctor who specializes in this

Chin Surgery

Hi, I have been in a touch with a couple of surgeons to enhance my lower third. Some recommend an orthognathic surgery. Others think it's too invasive and instead advise on a genioplasty with additional jaw implants to widen the jaw. I'm very confused at the moment and asking for a second opinion. Thanks

Wound Care

I had my tummy tuck on the 23rd of September so I am 1 month post op today and my incision has been dealing with some separation issues. I am just looking for a second opinion and any ideas or things I should know to help promote healing, my surgeon is on the opposite side of the country and I cannot afford to fly down right now so just looking for some immediate ideas and support. Thanks

General Reconstruction

I would be very willing to share every bit of my story , if I were able to find a surgeon to help me. At this point, I have been turned down by every doctor I have ever reached out to. Trying to keep my hopes and spirits up. I belong to a support group for this and there are so many people who have the same request as I do. I thank the dr that has recently tried to help me find someone.

Life saving plastic surgery (bilateral masectomy + nipple graft)

Body Masculinization

I received top surgery from Dr. Samuel Lien in WA and am so thankful I did. Dr. Lien is a kind, skilled surgeon with an eye for anatomy and understanding of diverse body shapes. His bedside manor made me feel respected, safe and comfortable; he was good with my pronouns and is LGBTQ+ friendly too. I feel confident, thrilled with the results and love my chest now!!

How Facial Recognition Technology Is Improving Your Plastic Surgery

Facial recognition technology can quantify how effectively your procedure has refreshed your appearance. It may also help a surgeon assess a patient's pain level during surgery. Ask your plastic surgeon how your procedure may impact life in the digital world.


Why a Breast Reduction Includes a Lift

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

DYK a breast reduction includes a breast lift? It's true. Taking away tissue helps, but the lift aspect can provide tremendous relief to neck, back and should pain. Also, the areola will get smaller. How's that? It's all in the video.


The Miseducation of Plastic Surgery

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Watch Drs. Karen Horton and Jamie Moenster debunk the myths. Plastic surgery isn't always scarless (but we know where to hide and treat them). It isn't vain (taking care of yourself never is). It isn't fake (you'll look like yourself, just refreshed).

Kevin J. Cross, MD | Las Vegas, NV Friday, October 21, 2022

Since the nose occupies such a central and important part of the entire face, it's only natural that people would want to address aspects of it they don't like. And a rhinoplasty can do just that.
