Doctor Spotlight Dr. Matthew Schulman
is making his mark!
Dr. Schulman, a leading board-certified Plastic Surgeon in New York, has made a splash in recent months on the medical aesthetics scene. Not only has he been included in one of the most prestigious group of healthcare providers – Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctor” 2011, but he has been awarded Most Compassionate Doctor in 2011, as well as being a recipient, several years running, of America's Top Surgeon and America's Top Plastic Surgeon.
Known as an empathetic doctor who listens closely to his patients’ needs and requests, he has also earned the respect of his colleagues with his professionalism and innovation in the field of plastic surgery. Committed to education and patient safety, Dr. Schulman also wears the hat of Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine teaching future plastic surgeons.
Viora congratulates Dr. Schulman on his most recent successes and we look forward to hearing more from him in the future!
Did You Know? Cosmetic surgery increasingly popular with men
This July we found ourselves in Singapore at the IMCAS Asia conference, giving us the opportunity to display all of our leading medical devices to leading dermatologists and plastic surgeons in the region. In addition, Dr. Nicholas Ngui, a medical practitioner at one of Singapore’s leading aesthetic medicine clinics, the DRx Clinic, presented a live demonstration using Reaction™
to show facial contouring & skin tightening techniques. Dr. Ngui is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and received his medical degree and post graduate diploma in dermatology from the National University of Singapore.
Men increasingly desire to improve their appearance with the help of cosmetic surgery. A survey recently published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) states a rising number of cosmetic procedures in men.
Compared with the previous year, the increase in procedures was 2 percent. While this number may not appear high, the growing numbers of specific procedures show the trend more clearly. A considerable increase was recorded for face lifts, ear surgery and botox treatments.
The number of procedures for skin tightening (face) has risen by 14 percent. This was followed by cosmetic ear corrections with an increase of 11 percent and liposuction with an increase of 7 percent compared to the previous year.
According to statistics, the list of minimally-invasive treatments is headed by botox (337,000 injections) for smoothing wrinkles.
90 percent of the total 13.1 million aesthetic and cosmetic surgery procedures carried out in the USA during the year 2010 were performed on women.
In comparison, the 1.1 million procedures performed on men constitute only a small portion of the total amount of procedures (approx. 9 percent), but as the numbers show, with potential for growth.

Does your skin mysteriously break out in the summer? You may be experiencing an allergic reaction to the sun. Many times common drugs or perfumes contain compounds that cause a rash when your skin is exposed to UVA rays (those same rays linked to melanoma and premature aging of the skin).
Two of the best ways to deal with this is to avoid the origin of the problem by ensuring that your sunscreen blocks UVA rays and to wear sun-blocking garments. To read the full story Sun’s Rays May Leave Mysterious Marks
