I love watching television. I am currently hooked on a handful of shows including Dexter, The Office, LOST (sad to see the show end but still watch reruns) and Nip/Tuck. I spend many nights sitting on the couch pretending that these shows are real and wondering how the next episode will end. I love the character development, the way producers tell a story, and the serial format that gives the feel of a drawn-out movie. The one aspect I hate is the commercials, so I watch most of my TV online or wait to order a DVD from Netflix.
Shows like Dexter and The Office are obviously not real, but they are entertaining. For that matter, shows like LOST and Nip/Tuck are not all that realistic either. But you never know what will come next, which is what keeps me coming back to watch every week.
Out of that list, I would venture to say that Nip/Tuck is my favorite show. The medical drama appears on the cable network FX. The show actually started back in 2003, and features two south Florida doctors named McNamara and Troy. They run their own office, ever so creatively named McNamara-Troy, and spend their nights living the American dream. McNamara is a family man while Troy cannot seem to hold down a relationship, and the related tension plays into the drama of each episode.
They perform surgery after surgery and have worked some incredible cases including breast augmentations to complete facial transplants. As a matter of fact, the episode that featured the facial transplant actually had an ulterior motive. But nevertheless, the show features these two highly trained and specialized plastic surgeons. Considering that they live on the east coast, but spend a season each year in Hollywood, you sometimes wonder if these types of doctors, with this level of proficiency and glamour, exist here in the Midwest.
Now, before I introduce you to Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons, please note that Nip/Tuck is not real. The tools they use, the surgeries they perform, and the medical drama that they experience is, but the fearless, R-rated lifestyle on TV is not how these doctors behave. The two doctors at Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons are highly trained and skilled professionals and take their job very seriously. These doctors perform similar surgeries that you see on TV and do so right here in Carmel, Indiana.
Who is Dr. Elizabeth A. Grasse?
Please allow me to introduce you to Dr. Elizabeth A. Grasse. Dr. Grasse is a graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin, where she completed a residency in general surgery at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, and a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Indiana University Medical Center. Dr. Grasse is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She also sits on the American Board of Surgery and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Outside of the office, Dr. Grasse stays busy working in and staying educated in the medical field. She is young, ambitious, and an extremely skilled physician.
But for Dr. Grasse, it doesn’t stop there. She is also involved in the Indiana State Medical Society and the Indianapolis Medical Society. Does it stop there for her? No, of course not. She stays involved in the Ohio Valley Society of Plastic Surgeons too. And, she is recipient of the Janet M. Glasgow Memorial Achievement Citation presented by the American Medical Women’s Association. It goes without saying that Dr. Grasse is more than qualified for your cosmetic and plastic surgery needs.
Who is Dr. Debra C. Bergman?
Dr. Grasse works side by side with an equally skilled surgeon named Debra Bergman. Dr. Bergman is a graduate of Indiana University School of Medicine located in Bloomington, Indiana. She completed a residency in general surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine, and a fellowship in plastic surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine. It goes without saying that she is a true Hoosier.
Dr. Bergman seems to be just as enthusiastically involved as Dr. Grasse. Dr. Bergman is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons as well as the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She also sits on the American Board of Surgery, and is an Associate Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. It doesn’t stop there for Dr. Bergman either. She also belongs to the Indiana State Medical Association, the Indianapolis Medical Society, and the Ohio Valley Society of Plastic Surgeons. She is a recipient of the Walther Cancer Institute Award, the Catherine Cox Hoover Award, and the Roy Rheinhardt Memorial Award. As you can see, both these doctors are not only educated and skilled, but also stay extremely active in their fields.
When you think about cosmetic or plastic surgery, it’s likely that you automatically think about liposuction and tummy tucks. But there are tons of other procedures that fall under these doctors’ areas of expertise. As a matter of fact, do know the medical term for a tummy tuck? While walking around the office you might hear the doctors mention an abdominoplasty. Sounds so much better than tummy tuck, doesn’t it?
These doctors also focus on abdominal liposuction, blepharoplasty, BOTOX injections, chemical peels, facials, and even offer a line of skin care products to maintain once you’re beautified. There is really no limit to the services that these two offer. The best part is that they are affordable, local, and are quick to answer any of your questions or concerns. They take seriously their mission to help you get the surgery desire and, and make sure you have an incredible experience while going through the process.
I am not going in for surgery any time soon, but if I ever need some work done, I know where to go. I’ve met these ladies, so I know they are genuine and truly care about their patients. They do everything in their power to make you comfortable from the moment you fill out your new patient request form to the time you peel off that last bandage to be completely satisfied with your results. Their goal is to help you enhance your own unique beauty.
