Dr. Copeland is part of a maintenance program for your skin.

by Alex Kuczynski

I was 28 when I met Dr. Michelle Copeland, a plastic surgeon, at a party on Long Island. A lawyer friend introduced us. "She's fantastic," he said, pulling me aside. "Look at my skin and see how great it is. She's the reason." I began seeing Copeland every two or three months, not for anything major, just some dermatological treatments. And if someone as serious as this lawyer was doing it—he had argued cases before the Supreme Court of the United States!—I should be, too. This was just a part of physical maintenance, like going to the doctor for a checkup or having your car tuned.

I have nothing but respect for Dr. Michelle, who counsels restraint and caution.
