Marie Claire - November 2002
Before Fred became my husband, he was my plastic surgeon. When I moved to Beverly Hills 10 years ago, I became acquainted with him through a friend of mine, a Playboy playmate who'd been his patient. After I told her how unsatisfied I was with the breast augmentation I'd gotten at 25 which left me with asymmetrical breasts she suggested I have Fred correct them.
After my surgery, Fred and I continued to see each other at parties; in Beverly Hills, it's common for patients to socialize with their plastic surgeons. Eventually, we started dating, and on Valentine's Day l998, we got married.
Because Fred's hours were so long, I rarely saw him. So we agreed that I should work in his office. But he had one condition: Gently, he asked me if he could redo the nose job I'd gotten five years earlier. He didn't want patients to think it was his work. Truthfully, I knew my nose looked overdone, but I hadn't felt the need to revise it, especially since my first rhinoplasty had been excessively uncomfortable. His request was quite a blow; I was hurt.
For two weeks, neither of us brought it up again. Finally, I reluctantly asked him how he would reshape my nose. We sat down at the computer, and he showed me what my new nose would look like. I had to admit, it was an improvement. I decided to go for it.
After the surgery, I felt my new nose made me look like a different person and I wasn't sure if I liked that. Compared with my old nose, which was bony and long, my new one is actually bigger. But I soon realized that it's also more in proportion with my face.
In the end, the procedure has brought us closer together. Allowing someone to permanently alter your face requires a lot of trust! Since then, Fred hasn't suggested any more procedures, though I've requested that he remove fat from under my eyes to reduce my bags, give me collagen injections in my lips, and inject Botox to eliminate my crow's-feet.
Last spring, after six months of pressure, he agreed to perform liposuction on my stomach. But he called it off right before the surgery. He said, "You don't need it. You're supposed to have a little curve there. It's sexy." I was furious. Sometimes, I wish he'd hold me up to the same standards as any patient. I had more plastic surgery done before I married a plastic surgeon! But lately, I've i come to see Fred's refusals as compliments. After all, he completely redid some of his previous girlfriends, who were much younger than me.
Breaplastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin has been helping correct
birth defects of children and adults in Third World countries for 15 years.
For those in Third World countries who lack even the most basic
medical care, there is often no choice but to live, however painfully, with
the birth defect.
Every few years, Corbin spends two weeks traveling to foreign
countries at his own expense to perform corrective surgeries at his own expense.
Burn victims, car accident victims and people with congenial
birth defects such as cleft lip and palate deformities are just a few of the
types of defects Corbin commonly treats. Children and adults, he said, walk
miles just to be seen by the doctors.
On the last mission he went on to Ecuador, Corbin treated about
10-15 patients per day - a load normally carried by two doctors.
Twelve years ago, Corbin came to Brea to help out a colleague's
under-staffed practice and decided to stay.
In between residencies and fellowships, he served as a staff
surgeon in the Army.
The leg was saved by a method in which Corbin transfers tissue
from one part of the body to another, including the tissue, artery, vein and
Louie Mendoza had sustained a severe dog bit to his left leg
and was refused treatment at a few emergency rooms, because he didn't have insurance.
He phoned a friend who advised him to call Corbin. After calling Corbin's office,
he was told to come in at once. He was immediately operated on and the surgery
prevented scarring and infection.
A car accident victim whose face had been severely smashed had his whole face wired shut. The patient used a fake insurance card, and never paid for the service. Corbin never saw him again.
"I travel to foreign countries at my own expense, and
perform bizarre procedures," Corbin says. "And I come back to the
U.S. and what are you going to do? Not treat them? I be a hypocrite."

For Immediate Release:
New Breast Procedure That gives patients the look of an implant using their own breast tissue.
Finally, a surgery that produces better shaped breasts, less scarring and no implant. With over 20 years experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Corbin is," The breast expert".
Frederic H.Corbin, M.D.,who has been featured in such media as People Magazine, The Learning Channel, Lifetime and MSNBC, is offering women a unique option, which gives them youthful perkier breasts, and less scarring. Dr. Corbin's goal is to give each patient the prettiest looking breast with as little scarring as possible.
Dr. Corbin bids Farwell to "The Anchor Scar:" Perfecting a Breast Procedure that Very Few Surgeons in the World Are Even Aware of
Formally breast reductions and most breast lifts were done with what has been called an inverted-T or anchor scar. The inverted-T surgery, which is still performed by the vast majority of cosmetic surgeons in the world, leaves patients with a long scar along the lower contour of the breast as well as up the breast that often shows when wearing a bathing suit, lingerie, and low cut tops. In an effort to offer his patients the state-of-the-art in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Corbin uses what is known as the SPAIR technique, a new procedure that very few surgeons in the United States have adopted or are even aware of. With the new surgery technique, the incision under the breast has now been done away with and the anchor scar is a thing of the past. The patient ends up with a better-shaped breast and with a limited amount of scarring. In most cases the scar can be either limited to around the nipple-areola complex, or for larger breasts, a short vertical scar going down from the areola. The results are patients with less scarring, quicker recovery and patients who are happier with the new size and shape of their breasts.
Expert Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
Although Dr. Corbin finds the new breast surgery technique vastly superior to the old inverted-T, which most surgeons continue to use, it is still true that what makes for a successful cosmetic surgery is not a particular technique but the expertise, experience and talent of the physician performing the surgery. Dr. Corbin, who is noted for his work on celebrities, as well as centerfolds, is fully certified by the American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. A graduate of Brown University, Dr. Corbin received his Medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine. He completed his surgical internship at the University Hospital of San Diego County, his surgical residency at the prestigious Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston and his Plastic surgery training at Columbia University, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. He is currently an assistant clinical instructor at USC, teaching plastic and reconstructive surgery students. Dr. Corbin also lectures to osteopathic medical students at Western University. With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Corbin has successfully performed thousands of procedures. An expert in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Corbin's writings have been published in several medical journals including an article on "Breast Reconstruction."
