Movie Medical Advice
The way characters handle medical situations in movies may be entertaining … but it’s not always right. The Doctors re-enact popular movie scenes, and demonstrate what the actor should have done, and explain how their actions could put their health at risk.
Banish Cellulite for Good
Are you cursed by cellulite? Approximately 85 percent of women over the age of 20 have some form of cellulite.
Marie, who has tried everything from altering her diet and exercise routine to using creams and lotions, just can’t seem to rid herself of the unwanted lumps. Until now. Marie visits plastic surgeon Dr. Christine Petti to undergo Cellulaze, the world’s first FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment for women with cellulite. It is designed to target the root causes of cellulite in just one treatment!
Marie and Dr. Petti join The Doctors just six days after the procedure to reveal Marie’s amazing results and explain how the procedure is performed.
“What’s so unique about Cellulaze is that it actually attacks the anatomy of cellulite,” Dr. Petti says. “This is one-of-a-kind.”

High Heel Dangers
While many women, including Dr. Lisa, love sporting fashionable high heels, sporting stilettos does not come without risks. In addition to sore feet and legs after a long day in heels, women who wear them can also suffer from corns, calluses, sprained ankles, hammertoes and even pinched nerves in their feet.
New “heel-less” high heels are now becoming trendy among celebrities, with designers attempting to move pressure from the heels to the toe pad. But are they safe? Dr. Lisa tests them out.
“I think you could hurt yourself in [these],” Dr. Lisa says. “It’s like you’re walking on [your] tip-toes. If you start to put any pressure on the back of your heel, you go backwards. Medically, I would not recommend these at all.
“If you want a healthier heel, you want an open-toe [one]. Something that has a wide heel base so that all the pressure is evenly distributed,” Dr. Lisa explains. “It gives you more cushion at the heel pad.”
