Adams Jr. MD, chief medical officer for The Plastic Surgery Channel interviews expert Board Certified PSC members Dr Steve Teitelbaum, Dr . William Rosenblatt, and Dr. James Namnoum on awake breast augmentation and discusses several issues patients should know about on the newest show on The Plastic Surgery Channel called PSC Hot Bytes.
