  • Fla. plastic surgeon discusses shaped breast implants
    Shaped implants create a more natural-looking breast and appear less prone to wrinkling than round implants, but the tissue pocket must be created more precisely than with round implants, says plastic surgeon Andrew Rosenthal.

  • Device offers "revolutionary change" in banishing cellulite

"It's a laser fiber that was designed to split the laser beam so half of the energy fires straight ahead [and] the other half fires at a 45-degree angle," Stridde said. The heat from the laser promotes collagen growth and disconnects the bands between muscle and skin that give cellulite its appearance.
