Skin Care Tip

Sun Damage is a Real Thing.

Sunburn is the most immediate threat of too much sun. Did you know that the cells and blood vessels in burnt skin have been destroyed? This may be seen under a powerful microscope. Sun damage causes the skin to become dry, wrinkled, discolored, and leathery. Although the skin looks to be thicker, it has really been thinned, making it more prone to bruises. The sun, on the other hand, poses the greatest danger since it is the leading cause of skin cancer, which is now the most frequent of all malignancies. Most skin cancers, according to doctors, may be prevented by avoiding sun exposure. The best approach to avoid UV damage is to stay out of the sun, yet most of us walk outside on a regular basis without sunscreen. When you are going to be outside for any amount of time, remember to take the following precautions: Wear sunscreen at all times. Every day, apply it to your skin. Make it a routine, just like cleaning your teeth. Put on some protection gear, including sunglasses that block UV rays. Long sleeved shirts and slacks, as well as a wide-brimmed hat, can assist shield your skin from the sun's damaging rays.

Plastic Surgery Tip

Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as tummy tuck, is a surgical surgery that tightens and tones your stomach.  Tummy tucks are popular among men and women of all ages who want flatter, thinner tummies.  This body reshaping procedure may be a viable option for you if you have one of the five concerns listed below.

  • Has pregnancy changed your stomach?  Our stomach expands throughout pregnancy to accommodate your growing child.  While some women regain their normal form after giving birth, others are left with strained abdominal muscles and extra skin.  
  • Have you lost weight?  Drooping skin in the midsection might result with significant and quick weight loss. You shouldn't have to hide drooping belly skin beneath baggy apparel after working so hard to acquire a smaller body.  The process can then be utilized to tone and sculpt your waist, ensuring that your entire body is a reflection of your efforts.
  • Has your body changed as you got older?  The older you become, the more difficult it is to reduce and keep off belly fat.  Your muscle mass gradually reduces as you get older, making your body more susceptible to weight gain.  Weight gain in the midriff can also be caused by menopause and other age-related hormonal changes.  A tummy tuck can make your stomach look slimmer and younger.
  • Have you noticed your abdominal muscles weakened?  While many men and women opt for a belly tuck for cosmetic reasons, the treatment also has medical advantages.  A stomach tuck tightens weak abdominal wall muscles as well as removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen.  This may include the following of improving your posture, back pain relief, and may prevent hernias.
  • Does your belly fat make you feel self-conscious?  In any situation a protruding stomach might make you feel self-conscious.  If you live a healthy, active lifestyle, having belly fat that refuses to go away despite diet and exercise might be irritating.  Many of our patients find that a belly tuck improves their body image.
