I was recently approached by a television production company about doing a reality TV show in my office. The idea was to follow patients through the consult, surgery and recovery processes. The drama would include a profile of Yager Esthetics and interviews with me, the staff, and anesthesiologists. They offered real money to film a test of 6 episodes here in Washington Heights.
In researching the production company, they were legitimate, with several programs that are currently on television. I decided not to go through with it.
The purpose of my practice, Yager Esthetics, is to serve the Hispanic community with the highest level of safety and professionalism. To have cameras, interruptions in my schedule, and inconvenience to my patients is just not acceptable. I am blessed to be busy, and would be unable to attend to as many people that need me.
I guess stardom will have to wait. Maybe in the future, if the right offer came along in the Spanish language, I would consider it. To have a wider platform to educate my community on the does and don’ts of plastic surgery is intriguing. Until then, you will just have to come and see me in person.
