Botox for Teens - Part 2/2 Dr. Lisa Masterson: Well, I have a question for you. How many plastic surgeries have you had? Sarah Burge: For me, it’s 150. Dr. Lisa Masterson: So, might you be a little bias about plastic surgery because as a mother, if my daughter came to me and said, “Mother, I’m getting frown lines at 16”. I would turn around and say to her, “You are 16. You are young and you are beautiful. And there’s no need to you know, inject your face with something well you could damage in so many different ways”. Sarah Burge: Well, excuse me. That’s quite rich coming from you, a lot of Americans. Because I though you’re all, all actually in favor of plastic surgery. I mean that’s what we all here out in the UK about plastic surgery in the American way. Dr. Drew Ordon: The reality is that if you would gone to a reputable plastic surgeon there in Britain, they would have turn your daughter away. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Right. Where she is going to you and you already have issues and biases with plastic surgery. And you are imposing them on her. Sarah Burge: I think this is getting really grossly out of proportion. This is Botox; it’s not barbitious for goodness sake so I mean let’s get a grip here. Dr. Travis Stork: Your image first of all of America is probably a little bit off, based on maybe magazines that you read but we would never promote. I hate to say imposing your will on a 16 year old but you have essentially done that because she is not even old enough to consent. We feel like, you are addicted to plastic surgery and we do not want your daughter to become addicted to plastic surgery. And we’ve got a plastic surgeon here. That’s what he does for living. Dr. Drew Ordon: I would never inject Botox. Sarah Burge: at least now I’m healthy. Dr. Drew Ordon: for wrinkles, somebody that young. Dr. Travis Stork: You are implying best to your daughter that she is not pretty enough at the age of 16 and you really pushing her into that. Sarah Burge: I never said that, now she is good. I never said that. You’re putting words in my mouth. Excuse me. Dr. Travis Stork: No. I said that. I’m the one. I will stand up and say I’m the one saying it. I’m the one who is saying that you are taking a very young woman who is your daughter in pushing or down a path where is she going to feel like every moment of her life. She is not good enough unless she has something done, because you started it at the age 15. Dr. Jim Sears: I’m still curious why you are doing this and not taking her to a plastic surgeon? Dr. Travis Stork: Because they would not do it. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yeah. Dr. Travis Stork: Yeah. Dr. Drew Ordon: So, they going to turn away and that’s why -- okay. Now, okay, my question answered. I understand now. I mean… Sarah Burge: Well, excuse me. I think you’ve got the story slightly disproportionate here because actually she had the procedure firstly done in Marbella and it actually was carried out by a plastic surgeon and then she came to the UK, and we had it taught up by me. So, that’s why you’ve got things slightly wrong. Dr. Jim Sears: If this is what she going to do, you going to do this, what every six months or so. I mean now you going to keep doing it or you going to find the doctor, a doctor that do it. Sarah Burge: Now, that’s entirely up to her. If she wants it done in three months or six months and its fine, if she does not, she doesn’t. Dr. Drew Ordon: You know that you can kill your daughter with Botox. You tell me right now, what is the lethal doze in units of Botox. I want to here it from your mouth. Sarah Burge: How many people if you kill then? Dr. Drew Ordon: I haven’t killed any because I know the dosage you use. I know the legal dosage and unit of Botox is. I want to hear it from your mouth that you know what it is. This is serious. You could cause great injury to your daughter. And I’m not… Sarah Burge: Well I have it. Because obviously I know what I’m doing and I’m not
