Skin Care Tip

Does Your Skin Hate Winter?

Do you love winter? Does your skin?

Does everybody love winter? Well, I certainly do here in Chicago. I’ll admit I get kind of sick of it by the end of February but overall I love the snow and I love winter. The problem though is that it causes dry, flaky skin because of the drop in temperature and humidity so your skin may appear really dry and undernourished.

What does that mean? That means skin moisturizing is super critical. Whatever skin care program you’re using, please make sure that you use an all natural healthy moisturizer especially in the winter. I like the summer you can use it once a day or even up to four times a day. Your skin will thank you.  And don't forget to drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin hydrated all day long. Remember that moisturized skin equals a hydrated body!.

Anti-Aging Tip

Go to Sleep

One of the easiest ways to get better sleep habits is to prioritize your sleep over your phone or devices!

You’re gonna feel so much better if you get into a routine.

Shut off all electronics at least 1 hour before sleep. Did you know that almost two-thirds of people aged 18–64 have within reach while they’re in bed. I was one of those people. A few years ago I decided to start putting my phone at the other end of my bedroom. I can’t have it out of my bedroom Completely because I’m on call every single night and I have to know if a patient, The emergency room or the hospital is trying to get a hold of me. But I feel so much better not being close to it. Give it a try. What have you got to lose?

Plastic Surgery Tip

Did You Know That Smaller Breasts Are Big Again?

One of the hottest aesthetic trends in 2023 is preferred breast implant sizes are shrinking. Why? Well there’s a few reasons.

Maybe She’s Born With It

Most patients have typically requested a natural look over the course of my practice. Common sense will tell you the more normal or proportional your breasts are to your body, the more natural you will look. A lot of people have cotton tired of that “pornorrific" look at the beach as well as on screen. This way you leave people guessing, maybe they're not fake? Maybe they're real? It's easier for people to think your breasts are natural and not augmented with implants when the size fits your body. This is also another reason for the uptick in breast reductions.

Rich People

People that live in the upper tax brackets are usually historically conservative with their aesthetic preferences. On average, east coast implant choices are a size smaller than on the west coast but overall rich people tend to prefer smaller implants and fly more under the radar.

Changing With Age

We do still see younger patients who might opt for a larger size but then as they become middle-aged and older, they usually desire a switch to smaller implants. After having kids and as they grow older, most people just prefer to better fit into their bodies

Celebrities And Social Media

This one seems kind of obvious and intuitive. Yes there's a lot of pressure the world places on people, none bigger than what they see trending every day.

What Does Your Doctor Say?

Most surgeons are changing their opinions and are also preferring more natural looking breast implants on their patients. Of course, there are some surgeons that still prefer doing larger breast implants out there so please make sure you don't let your surgeon talk you into something you don't want. You should have an honest conversation during your consultation and always choose what you're looking for not the other way around. Don't let your surgeon bully you or talk you into something drastically different than what you're looking for.
