Sorry to be a drag, but yes, it is January and time to make good on those resolutions. You promised yourself to do something about your skin or feel better about your reflection in the mirror, right?
Aack! It's bikini season and we're all panicked. We have Covid tummy and Zoom hips. There's no time to waste - what can we do? 'Tis the season for Liposuction. I don't know anyone who hasn't thought about it, joked about it and wished for it. But what is it exactly and what can it do for us?
Men, it's time to take charge so here's some plastic surgery advice for guys (ladies, this all applies to you too.) The face you see in the mirror, or on your ZOOM, matters when it comes to your next promotion, your clients, your love life. Successful men know this.

Ask yourself this: Do you want to look younger or more youthful? What does looking young really mean? What is the goal and what's the best way to get there?

Zoom! FaceTime! Suddenly we all need to be camera ready. We're at home, but on display. Whether you're teleconferencing for business or connecting with your grandkids I'm sure you've been noticing how unflattering a computer or cell phone is to your face. Wrinkles seem deeper. Brown spots look darker. Jowls appear even droopier.
Face it, we're all fascinated by celebrity. And nowadays, with Zoom conferencing, FaceTime, and all the other online video formats we need to be ready for our close-ups. Which is why I found myself studying Jane Fonda on TV the other day.
