S5 E14 The Madonna Effect: Ageism and Plastic Surgery With Dr. David Kashan

When Madonna presented at this year’s Grammy Awards she went viral. Not because of what she said, but because of how she looked. The flood of negative comments was about her very noticeable plastic surgery. Madonna said days later she was “caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny the permeates the world we live in.” And she’s right. It’s her life, her choice. But the debate continues over what did she do to her face exactly. Listen to this episode where Lauren speaks with renowned New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Kashan to get to the bottom of not only what Madonna probably had done, but how to get the results you want should you decide to go under the knife.

Join Lauren and Dr. Kashan as they discuss the procedures he likes doing the most, what he thinks Madonna had done, why everyone is freaking out about her, how she is handling the blowback, what he would have done differently, what he does if a patient won’t listen to his advice and suggestions, how he approaches facial aging, how he handles patients who might be scared of being overfilled or looking frozen, and so much more.

Note: We are in no way bashing Madonna in this episode, in fact we both love and respect her and feel people should do whatever they want when it comes to their own bodies with no repercussions. As Madonna who has never shied away from public opinion said, “I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way I look or dress and I am not going to start.”
