Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Podcast Celebrates 100th Episode

by Surgical Times

Inside of a year and nine months, the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Podcast has gone from airing its first episode to becoming the fourth most popular plastic surgery podcast in America.

Doctors Jay Calvert and Millicent Rovelo aired their premiere episode on September 30, 2019.

On August 24, 2021, the board-certified Beverly Hills duo aired and celebrated their 100th episode.

“Patients and professionals in the industry of aesthetic surgery have helped us build this show into something that we love doing and are glad it helps patients everywhere.”

100 Episodes at a Glance

Host Dr. Jay Calvert and co-host Dr. Millicent Rovelo have dedicated the bulk of their airtime to discussing aspects and intricacies of the most popular plastic surgery procedures of the year.

Breast surgeries, from augmentation to implant removal, have been discussed in 22 episodes. 

Rhinoplasty has been the focus of 20 episodes.

These procedures are also what the doctors are best at.

Dr. Calvert is one of Beverly Hills’ best plastic surgeons for rhinoplasty, as voted by peers nationally.

Dr. Rovelo is double-board-certified and focuses on breast surgeries above all others.

In their 100th episode, Calvert and Rovelo, who currently host, produce, book guests for, and manage the whole podcasting process, invited help with the show going forward and asked interested listeners to reach out.

“It’s our goal to make the practice of plastic surgery more accessible to everyone—prospective patients, other practitioners and surgeons, and curious listeners across the world,” they said.

Jump In Doc, It’s Podcast Season

The 100-episode milestone for them comes amid “prime time” for plastic surgery podcasts.

Dr. Sheila Nazarian announced Thursday that she is starting a podcast, likely as soon as September.

The Emmy nominated, board-certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon is one of America’s most famous and currently reaches more than a half-million people through Instagram and YouTube.

“It is the end of summer and I am taking a life inventory… kids heading back to school soon, starting a podcast, planning a bar mitzvah, making home improvements. The fall season is its own beginning. What is one change you are going to make in September?”

Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, America’s top rhinoplasty surgeon, aired the first episode of his new podcast on August 9.

Rohrich Nose” is two parts lifestyle and inspiration, and one part cosmetic surgery.

“Given the increasing popularity of podcasting in medicine, including learner favorability in listening to podcasts as a way to receive information, there is significant room in most specialties to expand content with specialty-specific podcasts.”

NPR’s Definitive & Timely Podcast Guide


For plastic surgeons looking at launching podcasts, a definitive guide has come just in time.

Published June 29, 2021, “NPR’s Podcast Start Up Guide,” from Arts Desk Editor Glen Weldon, is 295 pages of professional advice on how to conceive, create, produce, and grow a podcast.

NPR currently has more top podcasts than any other show producer.

The book’s closing page illustrates the type of proven advice found throughout that any podcaster would do well to heed:

“5. Edit. Edit ruthlessly. With no discernable ruth. At all. None.”

“This is it, the most important rule. The One True Answer to Everything. Yes, podcasts need to feel natural—but that’s just it. They need to feel natural. Not be. Feel. That means editing. Using your aural scalpel to cut digressions, dead ends, jokes that don’t land, and—if you’re willing (and, oh, be willing)—the ums, aahs, and lip smacks. When in doubt, take it out. It’s not dishonest. It isn’t slick. It’s a service to your listeners. It’s a way of focusing your discussion, a precious opportunity to identify and delineate what makes your podcast unique. Do not shirk this. Don’t fail your podcast—or your audience. Violate rules 1 through 4 if you must, but never, ever flake on rule 5.”


Good luck.
