LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2014 / You might do a double take when glancing at the cover of the May issue of Iron Man Magazine Sweden. Most people would be shocked to see that the fitness cover model is a doctor; a surgeon in fact. With six pack abs, Dr. Cat Begovic is featured on the cover next to the caption "The Modern Superwoman". She is a double board certified plastic surgeon with an impressive resume that includes graduating with honors from Harvard University and medical school from UCLA. She also completed two surgical training programs at UCLA. Her photos, including those in a 12-page feature article may finally convince even the biggest skeptics that beauty and brains can co-exist.
The interview also reveals many of the challenges Dr. Begovic faced as a woman in a predominately male dominated field on her path to becoming a successful Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. Of the 8521 board-certified plastic surgeons in the country, only a little over 850 are women. She recalls early on in her life being told that she shouldn't "waste her looks by being a doctor" or that "women have no place in the operating room" by other male doctors. However, this only motivated her to strive even harder for success. As a now established Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, she feels that being a woman now helps her in many ways, especially when it comes to relating to her female patients. As a plastic surgery patient herself, a published fitness and glamour model, as well as a mom who had work hard to recover her pre-pregnancy body, Dr. Begovic understands many of the body image issues that her own patients face.
Dr. Begovic also discusses how she was able to balance her busy career with being a mom and getting in shape for her cover shoot. Dr. Begovic is also a beauty and health expert who has been on various TV shows like "The Doctors", "Entertainment Tonight," and "Spike TV." She has performed scientific research on stem cell tissue engineering and has published or presented over 40 articles in scientific journals or meetings on topics such as cancer, anti-aging, skin care and vaginal cosmetic surgery. She is also a featured writer for the magazine. In this particular edition, her article discusses how sleep affects weight loss, liposuction to create six pack abs and what happens with weight gained after liposuction. Dr. Begovic states that the "joy of her life…." is her family and "of all the things I've been able to achieve in my life so far, being a wife and a mother is my most significant success."
