A Child's Ears Are Not a Laughing Matter

Often we think of childhood as an idyllic time of our lives, when we had little to worry about and before the onslaught of peer pressure during adolescent. But children whose appearance makes them look “different” – for example, children with ears that protrude noticeably or are abnormally large in proportion to their other features — sometimes do not experience childhood as a particularly happy time. Teasing and taunts from their classmates at school, and even from friends who don’t fully realize the pain they are inflicting, can produce deep and long-lasting psychological scars. Although parents may initially be reluctant … Continue reading  

Creating a Beautiful Neck

The neck is often one of the “give-aways” of a person’s age. Over time, loose skin, wrinkles and excess fatty tissue may make your neck less smooth and attractive than it used to be. Both women and men, as they age, often focus on the neck as an area that bothers them. Women most often will elect to undergo a facelift and neck lift as a single procedure. Men, on the other hand, sometimes will inquire about treating the neck alone. Facelift incisions are designed to smooth and tighten not only the lower face but also the neck area. The … Continue reading

Implants and breast cancer risk

Silicone Breast Implants Are Not Linked to Breast Cancer Risk In one of the largest studies on the long-term health effects of silicone breast implants, researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Bethesda, Md., found no association between breast implants and the subsequent risk of breast cancer. In 1992, because of the lack of sufficient evidence on the long-term safety of implants, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) restricted the use of silicone breast implants to women seeking breast reconstruction in controlled clinical trials, and Congress directed the National Institutes of Health to undertake a large follow-up study to … Continue reading

The best sunscreens

Recently, scientists have proven that ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation is a major culprit in photoaging and skin cancers. Unfortunately, most sunscreens don’t protect against long-wave UVA. In addition, legally valid, but scientifically misleading sunscreen labels-including the “broad-spectrum” and sun protection factor (SPF) designations-may provide users with a false sense of protection. Until federal guidelines and regulations catch up with new sunscreen research and technologies, physicians and consumers need to know how best to achieve daily photoprotection and what to look for when choosing sunscreen and daily wear products. Ultraviolet Radiation and the Need for Daily UV Protection Ultraviolet radiation that … Continue reading  

Size does matter!

Breast augmentation-Finding your ideal size One of the most frequent questions asked during a consultation is about your new size. Some request just a small increase others want more dramatic changes. Does implant size matter? Yes! Sizes can range from small~150cc (a small orange size) to medium ~300cc (grapefruit size) to large ~500cc (a small cantaloupe). These implants change your bra size from a little to quite a bit. Does it matter how much breast I have to start out with? Yes! A large implant behind a small breast may have the same impact as a small implant behind a … Continue reading  

Breast Rejuvenation Part I

Breast rejuvenation As you age many common changes occur that are detrimental to optimum breast shape. Not only does the volume decrease but also the overall shape is adversely affected by weight gain and loosening of the breast supportive structures. Many women notice this as “the breasts getting longer-droopier” and “ loss of volume” particularly in the upper pole. The overall effects of these aging changes are a loss of definition of the chest and trunk area. With a little weight gain there seems to be a lack of waist definition and an overall effect of ageing. Proper exercise will … Continue reading  

Breast rejuvenation part II

One of the more common reasons for premature breast aging and droopiness is excessive breast weight. The breast will rapidly loose its shape if the sheer size and heaviness put excessive strain on the skin and ligaments. Especially if the patient is of normal bodyweight a disharmony develops between the bra size and the rest of the body. Often these girls become the target of ridicule and inappropriate stares during their teenage years. The large size hinders in sport activities, clothing choices, and emotional development in these young teens. Early in their twenties the weight will take its toll an … Continue reading
