Dr. Bashioum’s Award-winning TV Commercials

June 5th, 2013

Click above to watch our unique television commercials that were nominated for advertising’s highest award, the Clio. They are a modern and somewhat outrageous twist on the work of Art Masters,  titled “Picasso” and “Rubens.” If you watch, you’ll soon see why.  

Creating an ad campaign was a fascinating process and we had an amazing creative team at Pixel Farm to work with.  It was great fun to see an idea transform into a pair of really unusual and quirky short films.  They caused quite a stir at the time of their debut in Minneapolis, with our local news coverage making it into USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.

Self-Esteem and Cosmetic Surgery

April 25th, 2013

In response to “The Dove Experiment”  posted on Mashable, I have definite opinions about the conclusions reached by many people commenting on the video.  After more than 30 years of being in practice as a cosmetic surgeon, I’ve talked with thousands of patients about how they look.  Here are my thoughts on the experiment, as a comment that I posted via my Nipntuck Twitter.

During consultation, patients sometimes report feelings of diminished self-esteem, often related to their perceptions of their own attractiveness.   Cosmetic surgery is effective in correcting physical problems. When realistic expectations in making outward changes are present, patients often reflect a positive change in their attitude toward their self-image.   This attitude shift is common with both my female and male patients alike.   While cosmetic surgery is certainly not the answer in every case of low self-esteem, I am pleased that many of my patients express feeling better about themselves following surgery.
