Skin Care Tip:

Healing for your skin!

Aloe Vera otherwise known as the “healing plant” has been used for many ages to treat several conditions. Aloe Vera has many nutrients and minerals that have been proven to promote skin cell regeneration when used as a topical gel on the skin. Aloe Vera gel can be used for symptomatic relief of skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, abrasions and especially burns.

Summer is right around the corner and it would be a good idea to keep a bottle of Aloe Vera gel nearby to treat those uncomfortable and painful sunburns. The gel will relieve the sunburn by soothing, healing and moisturizing your skin.

Remember, physician-strength skin care has a distinct advantage over most over-the-counter brands. The best physician-strength Aloe Vera is neaclear Liquid Oxygen Aloe Vera gel which seems to be the most popular, best tolerated and most effective.neaclear was started by a plastic surgeon.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Use Time Wisely

Daylight Savings Time begins in most of the United States at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, and around that time in about 70 countries worldwide. Yes, you’ll “lose” an hour on Sunday, but starting Monday morning and continuing into the summer, you get those extra daylight hours to be productive – make the most of them.

Time is a paradox for everyone. It's an absolute; it's perfectly equal for everyone... same days in a month, hours in a day and minutes in an hour. Yet time seems to work better for some and be more abundant for others. Those with seemingly more time have learned how to manage the allocation of their assets around time.

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Lots of people are interested in getting liposuction of the thighs. The patient is typically concerned with loose skin and fat on their inner, upper thighs. Our response to them is that liposuction of their thighs will only remove excess fat. In contrast, a thigh lift can remove excess skin and fat that may have been caused by pregnancy, weight gain weight loss and aging. The end result will be smoother, thinner and younger looking legs. We always get questions about whether or not the procedure is necessary, effectiveness and different treatment options. The thigh lift procedure (thighplasty) is a very common procedure and very safe if performed in an accredited physician’s office.

Make sure you chose a board certified plastic surgeon. A call to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or ASPS at 1-888-4-PLASTIC (ie. 1-888-475-2784) can tell you which doctors are legitimate plastic surgeons with outstanding qualifications. You can also visit the ASPS web site at www.plasticsurgery.org. The ASPS is the only one of the 24 boards approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties that certifies physicians in plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body.
