Sounds like an advertisement to me. I'm guessing Glenn will delete it when he sees it. As he should, this isn't the place for advertising.

If it is the Dr. and he wants to advertise then he should take it a step further and be a pioneer in the field by being as transparent as possible via his website
Document every single procedure (enhancements, complications, 20/20 blurred, 20/20 crisp etc.) with every single result.
You're right though - It may get taken down since it seems to be advertising rather than asking and/or answering legitimate questions/concerns.
