New York, NY (PRWEB) May 6, 2010
Dr. Howard Bellin, one of the most experienced and respected plastic surgeons in the world, was visited by an old friend recently – Sonja Morgan, one of the stars of Bravo’s hit reality television series “The Real Housewives of New York City.”
Morgan and her co-star Romana Singer visited Dr. Bellin’s 73rd street Cosmedica office and clinic recently where Morgan was given a brief consultation by Dr. Bellin. Morgan stated that she was interested in a liposuction procedure. The consultation was filmed by the show’s television crew and aired on Bravo in the April 29 episode.
Subsequently, Morgan has had a successful procedure with Dr. Bellin and has written about it in her blog at http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-york-city/blogs/sonja-morgan/forget-but-dont-forgive
“Dr. Bellin doesn't put you under anesthesia (risky for a mom), but I didn't have to recover for a week. Just two days after the surgery I was out to lunch with Ivana,” said Morgan in her blog. “ I know Dr. Bellin will make sure I get the best results, no matter what.
Dr. Bellin was honored to be chosen for the task of performing a cosmetic procedure on a high profile television star like Morgan, although this challenge is nothing new for Dr. Bellin, who has operated on some of the most high-profile and beautiful people in the world.
“Sonja Morgan is a beautiful woman, both inside and out and it was an honor to have her select me for her procedure.” said Dr. Bellin. “At my clinic, Cosmedica, we treat all of our patients like stars, regardless of whether or not they are on television. Nevertheless, I was flattered that Ms. Morgan trusted me with her cosmetic surgery needs.
Dr. Bellin has developed a unique method of liposuction that allows the patient to stand up intermittently during the procedure. Because the skin shrinks immediately after the fat is removed, an extremely accurate assessment of the results can be made that is not possible with a patient asleep.
