Meetings in Denver
Susan and I recently returned from the American Society of Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgery Nurses meetings in Denver, Colorado. I was asked to give a presentation on the Peri-operative nursing care of a Mommy Makeover patient. I spoke directly to the nurses and shared the success our office has had in taking care of our Mommy Makeovers. As you well know, a Mommy Makeover is a very popular procedure and it sparked a lot of interest.
We had a great time and I met some wonderful people who I will look forward to seeing again in the future. The weather in Denver was fabulous, which I hear is typical. Everyday had brilliant sunshine with temperatures in the mid 70s and low 80s. The food was great. If you are in Denver anytime soon and like Mediterranean food I would heartily recommend Rioja, which is a wonderful restaurant with a Spanish flavor in downtown Denver.
Aside from the food and weather, the meeting was great. One of the concerns that face plastic surgery nurses and plastic surgeons alike, is the proliferation of highly discounted skin care services that are largely unsupervised and provided by personnel with marginal training. In our practice we strongly believe in integrated care which provides the patient with both aesthetic and medically based care. We also try to provide our patients with the greatest value for their skincare dollar. That is not to say we are are least expensive, but we do feel that we offer you the greatest return on your investment in terms of results and service. There are many great medically based spas and skin care centers throughout the country who share this philosophy. I know it is hard to resist bargain-basement Botox when you’re on a budget. However, skincare, like medical care, is a service. The value of which depends on how the service is provided and not solely on the cost of the products that are used. A result the is less than satisfactory is not a good deal.

Fall Shopping Day!
Back to School
I can’t believe July is almost over. School will start in a few weeks and many moms are engaged in the war of wills otherwise known as The Summer Reading Assignment. There those whose kids need no prompting and do everything when they are supposed to. There are the rest of us whose kids deny the existence of summer homework or “have it under control” (translation: will wait until the last minute and then panic). For all the moms with teenagers, whose orderly lives will become a series of adolescent crisis interventions, this blog is for you. We have felt your pain and have a plan. Treat yourself to a massage or facial. Let us pamper you. Let us fill those hard earned wrinkles and Botox those frowns away.
Summer is still here, but remember, when you feel the need for a little TLC this fall, give us a call- we’ve got you covered.
Happy Independence Day!
For those who will spend time outside this weekend, be mindful about hydration! Did you know that men need about 3 Quarts of water a day and women need about 2 Quarts? Caffeine and alcohol are diuretics and significantly increase our need for water. Beverages with high concentrations of sugar can slow down absorption of water and may interfere with rehydration. Thirst does not let us know when we need water it just tells us when we are running on empty. As you may already know, you can function on less but not nearly as well. Your skin and other tissues are more easily damaged. You will tire easily and are slower to recover. We want you to feel good and feel good about yourself, so don’t forget that water bottle!
Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day Weekend 2010 is going to be great! The weather looks like it will finally be warm and sunny. The recent rainfall that we’ve had in the Bluegrass region has transpired into brilliant green trees and lawns, and flowers in full bloom. It is beautiful. I hope everyone takes the time to appreciate the beautiful weather and the extra day at home. For those of you who will be outside most of the weekend it is extremely important to wear a good sun block and reapply it every two hours. It surprised me to read that the most effective detterent to un-protected UV exposure was not the threat of cancer, but the threat of developing wrinkles. Whatever fate you wish to avoid- looking old or putting yourself at the risk of cancer, please use your sublock wisely this weekend and have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
Mothers Day is a great reminder of how wonderful mom is. Mom is a title that is earned with a lot of work and sacrifice. Today’s woman is a leader in the workplace and in the public. Sagging breasts and bulging tummies are no longer a necessary part of motherhood. Restoring your figure may take more than exercise and a healthy diet. The “Mommy Makeover” can bring you back better than ever. Contact our office to find out what we can do for you.
When you look good you feel good about yourself. Confidence is empowering. Talk to us about how we can help you be your best once again.
