Face The Facts – An Inside Look at Plastic Surgery by Dr. Barry Eppley

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Cosmetic surgery of the face is more popular than ever. People are interested in looking more refreshed, less tired, and sometimes changing how their face looks regardless of their age. And people are doing it at a younger age than ever before. With the popularity of this type of facial surgery, comes the expected marketing promotions and hype particularly prevalent on the internet, magazines, and newspaper ads. But what is real and what will work for you?

Learn that a facelift does nothing much for most of the face. Eyelid tucks are the best value of all cosmetic facial surgeries. There are different ways to do browlifts, some which may lengthen or shorten your forehead. Nosejobs are done ‘open’ because the results are so much better. Cheek and chin implants are simple operations that can make a big difference. Thin lips may not always be made bigger by injectable fillers. Botox sometimes is better than surgery. Ear pinning doesn’t involve any pins and it is easy to do. And much more….

These insights are given in greater depth and on many more facial cosmetic surgery procedures in the ebook entitled ‘Face The Facts – An Inside Look At Plastic Surgery’ available at Amazon. This is my perspective being a plastic surgeon who has been doing these facial procedures for years. You will learn what works, what doesn’t, and how to spend your hard earned dollars wisely. While hope may live eternal, happy patients come from being provided with realistic expectations and feeling that they have gotten a good return on their investment of time, money, and discomfort.

Injecting Youth – Insights From Behind The Needle by Dr. Barry Eppley

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

The recent phenomenon and popularity of Botox and injectable fillers for quick temporary fixes of cosmetic facial concerns has led many to consider or have these treatments. Because of their prevalence throughout our society and the resultant marketing behind them, many patients are confused and have inaccurate information as to what these cosmetic treatments can and cannot due.

Because of their popularity and knowing the many questions interested patients have, I have written a new ebook entitled ‘Injecting Youth – Changing The Face Of Plastic Surgery’ available at Amazon. This book answers all of the known science and facts about Botox and injectable fillers and gives my personal insights and thoughts on these treatments that I have done for years. This ‘behind the needle’ perspective gives you insights that you may not get from many doctors that performs these treatments. I encourage all patients considering these treatments, and particularly those that have done so already, to read this book. I guarantee you will get a new perspective on these ‘youth injections’ that will help you make more informed decisions.

Before and After Plastic Surgery Photo Results of Dr. Barry Eppley

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

It is a common request that patients seek to review before and after photographs from many different plastic surgery procedures. Photographs not only provide an awareness of what results can be achieved but also provide evidence that their prospective plastic surgeon has experience in the procedure that they are interested in. I think one of the best reasons that a patient should look at before and after pictures is that it provides a visual stimulus that often leads to good questions, particularly about the realistic benefits of what palstic surgery can…and cannot do.

In my plastic surgery practice, I have set up many different easily-accessible sites for my patients to review procedure results. All of these are on the internet at various websites. They are as follows:

EPPLEY PLASTIC SURGERY  My practice website has results from 24 of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. Within each category are dozens of examples.

LOCATE A DOC This is the #1 physician referral photo website in the United States. Search my name and city and you will have access to an extensive office tour as well as over one hundred before and after photographs from various face and body procedures.

LOVE YOUR LOOK  This is the patient website for the Johnson & Johnson/Mentor Corporation, the largest breast implant manufacturer in the United States. By searching under my name and city, you will find over one hundred before and after photographs of breast augmentation, breast augmentation revisions, breast lifts, liposuction and rhinoplasty results. This is a great resource for all potential breast surgery patients.

Between these three websites, you will close to a thousand before and after plastic surgery results performed by me. It is the generosity of these patients that makes it possible to create such a photo archive for new patients.

Face The Facts – An Inside Look At Plastic Surgery by Dr Barry Eppley

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Dr. Barry Eppley, board-certified plastic surgeon of Indianapolis, has just published a consumer ebook entitled ‘Face The Facts – An Inside Look At Plastic Surgery’. The book provides understandable information on available cosmetic facial surgeries for anyone considering a change of face. The book is available online at Amazon and will soon be distributed through all major booksellers as well. 

The desire to feel beautifully confident at any age has led to the current popularity of cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery. Through many different mediums including the internet, a tremendous amount of information is available on every conceivable procedure available for facial improvement. Yet much of this information is hype and marketing-driven,  leaving many people confused and misinformed about the options. Dr. Eppley writes from his own extensive plastic surgery experience of the face, and provides insights into what many cosmetic procedures actually are,  and what they can really do.  As he would counsel his own patients, Dr. Eppley speaks from the heart,  educating people to be able to  make the right decision for themselves. Written in an easy to comprehend, no-nonsense, non-medical-jargon style, this book is a must read for anyone considering the personal choice to change their face through plastic surgery – whatever the reason.

The Subspecialty of Bariatric Plastic Surgery

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

Dr. Barry Eppley of Indianapolis joins The American Society of Bariatric Plastic Surgeons


As the number of bariatric surgeries performed in the United States continues to increase, so has the number of patients that have been left with large amounts of loose skin after massive weight loss. The success of bariatric surgery has led to a completely new subspecialty of plastic surgery, Bariatric Plastic Surgery. While many of the face and body contouring procedures are not necessarily new, how and when they are performed in the bariatric patient with large amounts of skin are different from the non-bariatric patient. The extent of the lifting procedures, how different procedures are done together or staged, and before and after surgery management and considerations are different in this new generation of potential plastic surgery patients.

The recognition of the unique needs of the bariatric patient can be seen in plastic surgery by the numerous courses dedicated to the topic over the past five years, presentations at national meetings, and textbooks devoted to the topic. It is very appropriate, therefore, that the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has recognized this growing subspecialty and has sanctioned a special organization for it, The American Society of Bariatric Plastic Surgeons,. The society provides a comprehensive resource and a central poinjt for both patients and plastic surgeons alike to research the topic and find qualified and experienced plastic surgeons in this field. I am happy to become a member as my patients, both present and in the future, will benefit.
