Why do celebrities want to look like a beachball? We talk to celebrity dermatologist Dr. Ilya Reyter about the skincare and cosmetic procedures that people are using and why they end up not being such a good look after all. We look at Nicki Minaj
, Lil' Kim and the housewives of Beverly Hills and see what is underneath the surface on this episode of Media Mayhem.
Dr. Ilya Reyter is a leader in his field of dermatology and dermatologic surgery. A pioneer in facial volume restoration using fat transfer and fillers, Dr. Reyter has received acclaim for his work at the University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine. In his private practice, Dr. Reyter specializes in all aspects of dermatology and cosmetic surgery, laser surgery, liposuction, Mohs surgery/skin cancer surgery and reconstruction, and the evaluation and treatment of sun damage and photoaging using resurfacing lasers, fat transfer, Botox, and soft tissue fillers.
Dr. Reyter is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Dermatology at USC. As part of his faculty work, Dr. Reyter developed a pioneering lipodystrophy program to help patients fight the disfiguring side-effects of facial fat and volume loss. In this program, Dr. Reyter trains physicians to effectively treat facial fat loss, which often occurs in aging, but can be accelerated by certain diseases, such as HIV. Using advanced techniques to harvest and transfer a patient's own fat, Dr. Reyter can reverse the sunken, atrophied facial features that are so difficult to treat by any other means.
