UV rays are powerful. Without them, there is no life. Without protection from them, however, they can be damaging to the skin. This makes daily use of a full-spectrum sunscreen very important. Even in the winter. Even when you aren’t spending much time outdoors. It is always a good idea to wear sunscreen.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Sunscreen reduces the risk of developing certain skin cancers by 40 to 50%. Even so, it is best to seek shade during peak sun hours (between 10 am and 4 pm) and to wear protective clothing like long sleeves and sunhats when going outside.

During tummy tuck surgery, excess skin is removed from the midsection of the body, separated abdominal muscles are reattached, and the waist is drawn in to help enhance the appearance of the belly. As a result, clothing options may be improved, range of motion may be more complete, and self-esteem may be enhanced, making it an incredibly beneficial procedure for women and men with loose and sagging skin, stretch marks, and other issues related to aging and weight fluctuations.

Your initial consultation is your opportunity to discuss your concerns and ask questions about the treatments that may help you reach your goals.

In fact, many times they are the same thing. It is, however, the ethical duty of the surgeon to choose honesty in every...

In the process, breast reduction surgery can relieve the pain that overly heavy breasts may cause to the neck, back, and shoulders.

Newer options, such as form-stable implants, may retain their shape and feel even longer, but no breast implant is meant to last forever.

Signs Your Breast Implants Need to be Replaced

If you have saline breast implants, one of the biggest signs indicating a need for replacement is deflation. Silicone implants do not lose volume as rapidly as saline when ruptured. Slow leaks may need to be detected through...
