June 2005 – “Plastic Surgery Products – The Power of Two”
S. Randolph Waldman, MD has rounded out his practice by bringing in partner Stephen A.

Now he is, although Waldman is still a specialist. The difference is that he has taken on a partner whose expertise is in the body below the neck. The result is a well-rounded, multi-specialty practice that’s generating impressive case volume and providing both physicians an equally impressive livelihood.
May 14, 2001 – “First for Women – Should you have surgery?”
“There’s no correct age to begin surgery, it all depends on personal preference,” says leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. S. Randolph Waldman of Lexington, Kentucky. “When a patient tells me what she wants, I ask myself two questions: Can I achieve it, and can I do it in a safe fashion. If the answer to either question is no, I won’t operate.” says Dr. Waldman. “A good plastic surgeon will always take time when discussing a patient’s options, a good consultation should last at least 45 minutes, and there should be a second one before surgery.” he explains. “Another sign of a responsible surgeon is someone who will say no to you. Agood surgeon won’t perform unnecessary procedures.”

While caution should be exercised with any laser procedure, plastic surgeon Randolph Waldman, spokesman for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, says that “we are now at a point in medical research and clinical use that we can safely laser the neck. The new second generation CO2 Lasers and erbium lasers do not penetrate as deeply and move more quickly over the skin, emitting just enough heat to revitalize the neck without causing excessive redness or a difficult recovery.”
March 6, 1998 – “Lexington Herald Leader – Lifestyle Section, Saving Face”
Today, men and women, young and old, rich and middle class, are striving through surgery to be the best they can be. Women, have a stronghold on cosmetic surgery, but the number of male patients is rising. In 1986, 35 percent of all patients having cosmetic surgery were men, according to national figures from the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. Today there are improved anethesia (using local anesthesia instead of a general); improved monitoring devices; and improved medications. Much of the surgery is done on an outpatient basis. Dr. S. Randolph Waldman of Lexington, Kentucky said he hadn’t hospitalized a patient for cosmetic surgery in at least four years.
October 1998 – “THE LANE REPORT – Regarding Hair Transplantation…”
After only two weeks, Jack Pattie (local radio personality) is pleased as punch with his new hair transplant. “My head still looks like a road map.” he laughs, “but, you know, that’s what ball caps were made for!” Dr. Randolph Waldman, Pattie’s plastic surgeon, gave the deejay the most common hair transplant procedure. The hair-bearing scalp was divided into several hundred smaller grafts (745 for Pattie), then inserting these into tiny slits in the scalp, placing them in the direction of the hairs natural growth. The days of transplanting pencil eraser size plugs of hair are gone. Single-strand grafts give the front hairline a more natural appearance, progressing on the back of the head to two-strand and multiple-strand grafts. It takes three to six months for hair to begin to grow naturally, but then it’s permanent. Pattie took Waldman’sadvice, choosing a fairly high hairline, one appropriate to his age. “Some men my age want the hairline of a 25 year-old,” said Pattie. “I just want to look like a 46 year-old who didn’t go bald.” After having the same procedure repeated in six months, he’ll be finished.
July 1998 – “SKIN & ALLERGY NEWS – Regarding Lesion Removal…”

Radiosurgery offers a cosmetic advantage over eliptical excision in the removal of benign superficial skin lesions, Dr. S. Randolph Waldman said at the annual meeting of the Florida Society of Dermatologic Surgeons. “Although radiosurgery is a simple procedure, there are a few tricks to it. After the technique is perfected through practice, there should be no scarring.” said Dr. Waldman, director of the Waldman Schantz Plastic Surgery Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
