Praise for In Stitches by Dr. 90210 Robert Rey!

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

My friend Dr. Robert Rey, the star of E!’s Dr. 90210, has graciously offered this review of In Stitches:

“Dr. Tony Youn’s book In Stitches is well written, very readable and appropriately witty. I had the pleasure and opportunity of meeting and working with Dr Youn. I find him not only to be extremely capable and a great surgeon, but also a kind and generous man. In this book, I actually see a lot of myself in him. At times I was in tears and at others was laughing out loud. I highly recommend it!”

Thanks Robert! See you on TV!

 

Extreme Dr. 90210

Monday, June 7th, 2010

If you get a chance, check out the new Extreme Dr. 90210 special airing at selected times on E!. This is not a continuation of the previous Dr. 90210 series, but a one hour special following three women who undergo ‘extreme’ plastic surgeries. It also marks the return of Dr. Robert Rey, who begins his quest to open a plastic surgery clinic in Honduras, of all places!

I found the results of the eyelid reconstruction amazing, and the antics of Dr. Rey especially entertaining. That guy cracks me up! If you TiVo it, I all but guarantee you will not be disappointed.

And no, I do not make my return to Dr. 90210 on this special. I’ve not been involved with the program since 2004! Hopefully someday soon…

The New Season of Dr. 90210

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

The sixth season of E! Television’s Dr. 90210 is premiering Monday, Sept 8th at 10/9c. Check out the preview clip on eonline.com here. Dr. 90210 is now the only plastic surgery television series that airs new episodes. I’ve got it TiVo’d. Dr. Gary Motykie is a friend of mine, and a good guy. He actually took my spot in L.A. when I left to return to Michigan. It’s good to see he’s doing well for himself.

Eonline.com has a Dr. 90210 Celebrity Facelift Game, where you can take the various features of celebrities and combine them into “the perfect face.” It’s pretty silly, but hey, it’s a slow plastic surgery news week.

Christopher Knight – Laser Hair Removal

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

On the latest episode of Dr. 90210, the Brady Bunch’s Christopher Knight underwent laser hair removal on his neck, between his eyes, inside his ears, and even inside his nose! While my practice offers laser hair removal, I’ve never seen it done to some of these weird areas. I’m not the one who normally does it though, since most of my time is spent in surgery.

Come to think of it, maybe I can have my aesthetician Otilia zap the inside of my nose…

This Season on Dr. 90210

Saturday, October 20th, 2007

I have really been enjoying this season’s Dr. 90210. It’s been nice seeing my friend Dr. Gary Motykie get a good deal of airtime, and for some reason I find Dr. Will Kirby fun to watch. Maybe it’s because he does such simple things (Botox, lip injections, chemical peels, laser tattoo removal) that I am astounded the show is spending so much time on procedures so basic and less interesting (at least to me).

This past week’s episode left me in stitches (sorry about the pun) with Dr. Robert Rey and his family’s terrifying camping trip. If you catch any episode this year, see this one or the one where Dr. Rey goes back to Brazil to meet his dad. You’ll see that there is much more to the good doctor than you’ve seen on TV so far.

Overall, I think this season may be the best one since the first season 3 years ago. It only seems to be missing one thing…hmmm….me! jk

Jai Rodriguez Gets ‘Toxed

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

The latest episode of Dr. 90210 has Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’s Jai Rodriguez getting some Botox, collagen (or so it looked), and a mild chemical peel from dermatologist Will Kirby. He looked good afterwards, and the segment was an entertaining, funny diversion. It was nice to see Dr. Kirby perform a procedure on someone other than a good friend or his mom, too.

How Do Plastic Surgery Reality Television Shows Influence Patients?

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

A recent study published in the leading plastic surgery journal has examined how reality plastic surgery television shows like Dr. 90210 can affect the decision making of prospective patients. Some highlights of the study:

a. Researchers studied the behavior of 42 cosmetic plastic surgery patients.
b. Out of these patients, 57% were high-intensity viewers of plastic surgery shows.
c. These patients were greatly influenced by television and the media to opt for cosmetic plastic surgery.
d. They felt they knew more about general plastic surgery.
e. They also believed that the reality shows on plastic surgery reflected real life situations.
f. Four out of five participants said that the reality shows influenced their decision to go in for plastic surgery.
g. One-third said that they were “very much” or “moderately” influenced.

Is this a good or bad thing? I must admit that I am a bit biased, since my appearances on Dr. 90210 a few years ago helped get my practice going. For the most part, I have great respect for many of the plastic surgeons on the various reality shows, and believe they present the specialty well. I would count these “television” surgeons as my friends or acquaintances (among others): Dr. Richard Ellenbogen, Dr. Gary Motykie, Dr. Steve Svehlak, Dr. Dan Yamini, Dr. John Diaz, Dr. Robert Rey, and Dr. Gary Alter.

Nothing, however, takes the place of a patient undergoing a real face-to-face consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. This is where the truth should be separated from some of the exaggerations which are seen on television.

p.s. Don’t forget to catch the season premiere of Dr. 90210 on E! July 30th.

Dr. 90210

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

The new season of the E! Dr. 90210 television show began this week…and I have no part in it! While they were only in my old L.A. office for the first season, they have returned to my former office this season to focus on two young guys who took my place: Dr. Gary Motykie and Dr. John Diaz. Dr. Motykie is the one who actually filled my spot when I decided to leave L.A. to return to my home state of Michigan two years ago. Both are good guys who have a great mentor in Dr. Richard Ellenbogen, one of the top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons over the last twenty-five years. I have a feeling that Dr. Diaz and Dr. Motykie’s single, footloose-and-fancy-free lifestyles will showcase better than my current married with a small child lifestyle. Ah.. life goes on…

Dr. Robert Rey

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

Is Dr. Robert Rey a hero? It appears the star of Dr. 90210 recently helped during a skirmish on a plane we was flying on.

Now I don’t know Dr. Rey too well, but I have met him on a few occasions during my time as a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. Some of you may remember my all-too-brief time on the show as well. My office was located in the same building that he operated in, and he was kind enough to show me his technique for breast augmentation through the belly button. My impression of him was much like you see on TV. He is a good guy, does a lot of good work for people, and was very gracious with me. He gave me some good advice during the time I spent with him, and I think has done very well for himself.

Dr. Rey completed a breast and cosmetic plastic surgery fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. He has also attended such prestigious universities as the U.C.L.A. School of Medicine, Tufts University School of Medicine and Harvard University. I think very highly of him.

I’ve also met Dr. Linda Li and her husband Bill. They also were very gracious people, and I think very highly of them as well.

Thread Lifts and Dr. 90210

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Do the thread-based brow lifts work? Yesterday I watched a TiVo’d Dr. 90210 episode from 2 weeks back where Dr. Jason Diamond performed a browlift on a woman using threads. In the television show, the facial cosmetic surgeon described how these sutures work to lift the brow to a nicer position and are the newest, best thing going today. These threads can perform a brow lift without REAL surgery! Sounds too good to be true, right?

Unfortunately, it is. He subsequently wrote an article in this month’s Plastic Surgery Products magazine describing how these thread-based lifts do not work. He’s performed over a dozen of them, virtually all with zero visible results. He concluded his article by stating that these suture brow lifts do not work. In addition, he included the photos of the very same patient on Dr. 90210 whom he recently used to show the entire viewing public how great this procedure is! Now I suppose that this must show truth in advertising, as ONE of the two claims must be true. Either it is the best new procedure going today, or a complete sham. I would bet on the latter. It just shows that while you can’t necessarily believe everything you see on TV, you CAN necessarily believe everything you read…
