Great Article in Huffington Post on Fat Transfer

Fat Injections More Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedure Than Liposuction

 

PA | Posted: 28/01/2013 07:56 GMT | Updated: 28/01/2013 09:37 GMT

Fat injections have become more popular than liposuction, new figures show.

The number of women who are transferring fat from one part of the body, such as the hips or thighs, to areas that have lost plumpness through age, including the face or hands, has increased by 13% in just one year.

Meanwhile, the number of women who had lipo has reduced by 14%, according to data from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps).

A total of 2,641 women underwent a "fat transfer" procedure last year, making it the seventh most popular cosmetic surgery conducted by Baaps members.

Meanwhile, liposuction has dropped to eighth place.

Even though anti-ageing procedures are becoming increasingly popular, boob jobs still top the charts for the most common cosmetic surgeries - almost 10,000 women had breast augmentation in 2012.

Of the 43,172 surgical procedures carried out by Baaps members last year, one in 10 were conducted on men.

The most popular procedures for men were nose jobs, eyelid surgery and breast reduction.

Rajiv Grover, consultant plastic surgeon and Baaps president, said: "The growth rates for surgical facelifting and other anti-ageing procedures showed a double-digit rise, despite a double-dip recession.

"Interestingly, for the first time we see a greater number of women having procedures to re-insert fat - known as fat transfer, to add volume to the face - than to remove it, in the form of liposuction."

PRP and Dermaroller- facial rejuvenation

Forever Young, Inc. and Dr. A. David Rahimi are proud to offer:

 

PRP and Dermaroller Facial Rejuvenation.

 

 

PRP and Dermaroller for facial rejuvenation and removal of fine lines:

 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used in Medicine for many years. More recently it has gained widespread applications in facial and body rejuvenation. The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone, and color with minimal or no significant recovery time.

 

This novel process uses the body’s own healing power and offers incredible skin rejuvenation. Platelets and various growth factors in your blood are harvested and concentrated. The freshly prepared concentrate is applied to the skin followed by the application of 0.5mm Dermarollers. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and is performed by Dr. David Rahimi.

 

The applied growth factors and platelets stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes, which produce collagen and keratin. PDGF have a significant role in blood vessel formation, the cellular division of fibroblasts (the most common cells in connective tissue), and in synthesizing collagen and the extracellular matrix, including hyaluronic acid.

 

Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase skin tone and volume providing a more youthful appearance.

 

Consultation: Free

 

Procedure last about 30 minutes

 

Cost: $750

 

2 to 3 sessions over 3 months are recommended

 

Also ask Dr. David Rahimi about PRP and Stem Cell Fat Transfer for volume repletion and filling of the nasolabial folds and lips.

Age Bias and Cosmetic Surgery- I see it every week!

Special Report: Silicon Valley's dirty secret - age bias

SAN FRANCISCO | Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:27am EST

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - When Randy Adams, 60, was looking for a chief-executive officer job in Silicon Valley last year, he got turned down from position after position that he thought he was going to nail — only to see much younger, less-experienced men win out.

Finally, before heading into his next interview, he shaved off his gray hair and traded in his loafers for a pair of Converse sneakers. The board hired him.

"I don't think I would have been able to get this CEO job if I hadn't shaved my head," says Adams, who has founded eight venture-backed companies. He is now chairman of the company that hired him, mobile conference-call service Socialdial, and is fundraising for a new business. Adams has supplemented his makeover by trading in his button-down shirts for T-shirts, making sure he owns the latest gadgets, and getting an eyelid lift.

Such are the pressures in Silicon Valley, where the start-up ethos extols fresh ideas and young programmers willing to toil through the night. Chief executives in their 20s, led by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, are lionized, in part because of their youth. Many investors state bluntly that they prefer to see people under 40 in charge.

Yet the youth worship undercuts another of Silicon Valley's cherished ideals: that anyone smart and driven can get ahead in what the industry likes to think of as an egalitarian culture. To many, it looks like simple age discrimination - and it's affecting people who wouldn't fit any normal definition of old.

"I don't think in the outside world, outside tech, anyone in their 40s would think age discrimination was happening to them," says Cliff Palefsky, a San Francisco employment attorney who has fielded age-discrimination inquiries from people in their early 40s. But they feel it in the Bay Area, he said, and it's "100 percent due to the new, young, tech start-up mindset."

Regional data on age discrimination are hard to come by, making it hard to establish precisely how Silicon Valley stacks up against other parts of the United States.

Of the 18,335 employment cases filed in 2010 with California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing, one-fifth cited age. That puts age below retaliation as a discrimination claim, but above racial discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual orientation.

Nationally, retaliation is also the most frequently cited discrimination claim, according to the federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission. But age comes much lower down on the national list, below race, sex, and disability.

The federal agency says age is cited in 26 percent of total complaints in California, compared to 22 percent in New York and 21 percent in Texas. Among large states, Illinois had the highest ratio of age-related complaints, at 37 percent.

WUNDERKIND WANTED

Some technology recruiters say unequivocally they see bias at work. Marta Fuentealba, a principal at start-up specialist Talent Farm, says she's encountered it many times.

She recalls a meeting at a software company a few years ago, when the human-resources executive told her he would like to find somebody "around age 26 or so" to fill a job. An age requirement along those lines would violate both state and federal laws on discrimination, California labor lawyers say.

"You mean, somebody less jaded?" Fuentealba recalls asking, hoping to jolt the executive back into legal territory. "And he said, ‘No, I mean somebody young, probably no older than 26.'" Back at the office, she sent the executive resumes from a variety of candidates.

Jeff Spirer, a 61-year-old technology marketing and strategy veteran, landed a new job in October after a stint doing part-time consulting. It was a tough search. He recalls the follow-up after a long phone interview at a small online-surveys company last year.

The hiring manager asked Spirer to come in for an interview with the chief executive, who was in his 20s. When Spirer walked into the room, the CEO looked at him, said something had come up unexpectedly, and left.

The interview never got rescheduled, and a younger candidate eventually got the job. Spirer cannot say for sure, but he thinks the CEO was taken aback to see somebody with wrinkles. "What other conclusion can I draw?" asks Spirer.

Age discrimination is notoriously difficult to prove. Lawyers say they typically do not have smoking guns such as emails saying the candidate or employee is too old, and need to be able to show through other methods such as statistics that the company is making employment decisions based on age.

In some cases, there are reasons other than bias for preferring younger workers in a startup setting. People with young children can be strapped for time and less able to work long, late hours. Younger workers are more likely to be expert in the newest software programming protocols. Young entrepreneurs, like many others, often move instinctively in hiring from the cohort of those they know.

Yet there are some indications that age bias is now part of the culture in Silicon Valley -especially visible in what Adams of Socialdial calls the "cachet of the young entrepreneur."

When young executives like Zuckerberg are successful, their age often gets a lot of attention. Successful older entrepreneurs, on the other hand, take pride in every aspect of their accomplishments - except their age.

When the software company Workday went public last month and raised $637 million, little attention was paid to the fact that co-founder and co-CEO David Duffield is 72.

Sandy Kurtzig founded Ask Computer Systems and its manufacturing software program, Manman, and saw the company through a stock-market listing in 1981. Now, she has raised $10.5 million from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and others for her new software company, Kenandy. She says she is in her 60s and leaves it at that, explaining, "I don't want to advertise it."

'ENTHUSIASTIC FAN'

Investors, in contrast to employers, are not subject to discrimination laws when deciding whom to fund. And they are among the most outspoken in declaring their age preferences.

"I am just an incredibly enthusiastic fan of very talented 20-somethings starting companies," Sequoia Capital's Mike Moritz, 58 years old and a top VC, once said at a conference, echoing similar comments he has made over the years. "They have great passion. They don't have distractions like families and children and other things that get in the way of business." He was 49 at the time.

"Unfortunately, I don't think the quote you have selected is very representative of what I think," Moritz said in an email. He declined to elaborate.

Khosla Ventures' Vinod Khosla, 57, told conference goers last year that "people over 45 basically die in terms of new ideas."

Khosla says the line came in the context of a talk where he was discussing the fear many older people have of failure, contrasted with many younger people's experimental bent. "I was encouraging people to try new things that go against conventional wisdom," he says.

Khosla Ventures invests in several companies with over-45 leaders, including Nu-Tek Salt LLC and its CEO, Tom Manuel.

Some venture capitalists extend their appreciation of youth to their own partnerships. In June, Benchmark Capital's Peter Fenton, 40, told a group of journalists that Benchmark strives to keep the average age of its most-active partners under 40 to better relate to young entrepreneurs.

Fenton says he is not ageist, arguing that there is a well-documented relationship between youth and creativity. As for partners such as himself who hit 40, "we have a discipline to try and stay young," he says. "Young at mind."

Mark Zuckerberg himself once told a class at startup-funding firm Y Combinator that hiring only young people with technical expertise was the best way to found a successful company. "Young people are just smarter," he said. Zuckerberg was 22 at the time. Through a spokeswoman, he declined to comment.

Yet there is little evidence to support the idea that young people are intrinsically more likely to thrive as entrepreneurs.

Fluid intelligence, which allows people to think logically and solve problems, does deteriorate with age, behavioral scientists say. But another type of intelligence known as crystallized intelligence, the ability to tap into experience and amassed knowledge, improves somewhat until about age 65.

The conventional wisdom about young people being more focused on work is itself a stereotype, older executives say.

TIRED OLD MYTHS

"I have more time than a 35-year-old with a newborn," says Spirer, the marketing veteran. "And I'm more available. Judgments are made on age-related stuff without thinking it through."

Laurie McCann, an attorney with retiree lobby AARP, says the technology sector's obsession with fresh ideas and long hours leads people to fall back on easy assumptions about age.

"That older people can't work that fast," she says. "That they can't think on their feet in order to come up with the ideas." Further assumptions include inability to change on the part of older employees, or to get along with younger people.

Other fields, such as law, education or healthcare, also value creativity and hard work, she says, but less so than a track record. "Any field where experience is valued, I think you're going to find less instance of discrimination," she says.

Silicon Valley veterans try to adapt as best they can. Adams of Socialdial ticks off a list of faux pas that he believes peg older jobseekers as outsiders. "You can't have an AOL email," he says. "That's horrible. A Gmail address is okay. What's really cool is an email with your name on it," as part of the domain.

In person, older job applicants should carry a backpack, not a briefcase, he says. Avoid Blackberries and Dell laptops in favor of Android phones and Apple products. And above all, steer clear of wristwatches, which most younger people have replaced with the clocks on their phones. "The worst would be a gold Rolex," he says. "Tacky, and old."

Some recommend dressing young. For her first interview at Facebook, 40-something market researcher Sally Sadosky headed to a boutique popular with women 20 years her junior for advice on "something to look hip" and "blend in."

She ditched her tailored pants and blouses for a dress, tights, and biker boots. She then got second and third interviews and had to come up with more hipster outfits. "I was beginning to sweat," she recalls. She eventually got the position.

Adams recommends getting rid of gray hair, either through dyes or through shaving, as he did. He also believes in treating wrinkles or other skin-related signs of age. A few years ago, he underwent an eyelid lift to reduce sagging above his eyes.

The cosmetic surgery route seems increasingly common among the men of Silicon Valley. Roy Hong, chairman of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation's plastic surgery department, says men represented 14 percent of his customers last year, up from 9 percent a decade ago.

Still, the scalpel is where some draw the line. Spirer complains that his friend Adams, buoyed by eye-surgery success, is hounding him to undergo a similar procedure for a more youthful image and enhanced job prospects.

No go. "I'm Jewish," Spirer says. "I've had bags under my eyes since I was 25."

Ultherapy seems to help deep acne scars.

Over the last few months have noticed a very interesting phenomenon. I have been treating several patients with deep acne scarring (atrophic and box-car type acne scarring) with Ultherapy. These were patients who had sun damage and actinic damage and were doing the Ultherapy to get a face and neck lift. I am hearing from all of them that their acne scars have significantly improved as well.

 

I will start an in-formal study and treat several patients who suffer from deep acne scars with Ultherapy alone and with a combination of Ultherapy and Mixto fractional CO 2 laser and report back to you.

 

This could be a promising adjunctive therapy for people suffering from extensive acne scarring.

Skin Care "Produce"!

Great article in LA Times on what topicals aid in reducing wrinkles:

Eat it, wear it? Produce in skin-care products may not help

Fruits and vegetables have beneficial antioxidant compounds, but topical products need to be formulated to ensure that ingredients remain active and penetrate the skin. Here's a look at products with green tea, curcumin/turmeric, licorice and apples.

Redheads and Melanoma Risk

Redheads may be at higher risk of melanoma even without sun

A study on mice suggests that pheomelanin pigment, which gives rise to red hair, is itself a potential trigger for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Melanoma and redheads

Doctors have long urged people with red hair, fair skin and freckles to avoid the sun and its damaging ultraviolet rays. To venture outdoors without a wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen was simply courting skin cancer, they cautioned.

Now, however, a study in mice suggests that those among us with ginger hair and fair complexions face an elevated risk of the disease even when covered up.

The study, published online Wednesday in the journal Nature, suggests that the same reddish-yellow pigment that gives rise to rusty locks and an inability to tan is itself a potential trigger in the development of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.

The findings appear to solve the riddle of why darker-skinned individuals have a significantly lower risk of melanoma than lighter-skinned people, even when the sun protection factor, or SPF, of dark skin is just two to four levels higher than that of light skin. It could also explain why red-haired individuals are more susceptible to melanoma than anyone else, even blonds.

"Even if you're good about avoiding UV rays — you know, putting on sunscreen, wearing protective clothes and being careful at the beach — it's still possible this red pigment is related to carcinogenic activity anyway," said Dr. David E. Fisher, director of the melanoma program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Charlestown and senior author of the study.

Melanoma is a from of cancer that begins in the skin's pigment-producing cells, or melanocytes, and is often associated with fair skin, excessive exposure to sunlight and tanning lamps, or a preponderance of moles. The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 76,000 people will be diagnosed with melanoma in 2012 and that more than 9,000 will die from it.

The color of human skin, hair and eyes is dictated by two types of melanin pigment: pheomelanin, which is reddish-yellow, and eumelanin, which is brownish-black. Both are produced in the upper layers of the skin, and people with a greater proportion of brown-black pigment will have a darker complexion than people who have a greater percentage of the red-yellow pigment.

Initially, Fisher and colleagues set out to examine how moles can develop into melanoma when exposed to ultraviolet light, a form of radiation that can damage DNA. The test subjects were mice bred to be susceptible to cancer. Because mouse hair is also determined by eumelanin and pheomelanin, researchers used black, albino and golden-yellow — or "red-headed" — mice to mimic a range of human pigmentation.

Yet even before researchers got a chance to expose the mice to UV rays, 50% of the redheads developed melanoma within a year. Their black and albino counterparts, however, developed melanoma at low rates and over a longer period.

"We were very surprised," Fisher said. "In fact, one of the first things we did was go back into the animal room with a UV meter just to be sure that for some inexplicable reason the lights were not actually emitting ultraviolet radiation."

Study authors surmised that since UV radiation could not have caused the cancer, the pheomelanin pigment itself was causing a damaging chemical reaction inside the animals' skin cells. This damage, called oxidative stress, occurs when cells produce an altered type of oxygen molecule as waste. Normally, cells can protect against these waste molecules, but an overabundance can damage the cell and its DNA, possibly laying the foundation for cancer.

When researchers compared skin samples of the different mice, the redheaded mice showed almost three times as much damage due to oxidative stress, leading authors to conclude that pheomelanin was the culprit.

Conversely, the brown-black pigment, eumelanin, possibly acted as an antioxidant in the black-haired mice and counteracted the red pigment's damaging behavior. The albino mice lacked either type of functioning pigment.

The idea that pheomelanin might play a role in melanoma was advanced a number of years ago by epidemiologists. However, it was only recently that chemists were able to isolate each pigment and examine them individually for such an experiment, according to Dr. Meenhard Herlyn, a microbiologist and dermatology professor at Philadelphia's Wistar Institute.

"To show this in these animals is very, very convincing," said Herlyn, who was not involved in the study but wrote a review that accompanied it. "This will be a landmark study on the importance of this pigment."

He also echoed the study authors' belief that instead of exonerating UV rays in the development of melanoma, radiation probably made the situation worse.

"The big danger here is that somebody will say, 'Oh, well if I can't do anything about it, then I can go to a suntanning salon and go tanning on the beach and just call it fate.' That's not the case," Herlyn said. "One still has to be very conscientious about not getting a sunburn and getting the damage."

The consensus among evolutionary biologists is that humans evolved fair skin as they migrated from the tropics to high northern latitudes, where light was less abundant in winter. By having more pheomelanin pigment than eumelanin, fairer-skinned humans were better able to synthesize vitamin D, a process that's activated by sunlight and is crucial to bone formation. This function is so important, especially in children, that the trait survived in the gene pool despite the increased cancer risk that comes with it.

Fisher said the study offers a silver lining for redheads: As researchers gain a better understanding of pheomelanin, they'll be likely to identify specific antioxidants that could arrest harmful cellular processes. Someday, he said, those antioxidants might be added to sunscreens.

But he discouraged people from experimenting with antioxidants on their own, since certain combinations can inflict greater oxidative stress.

Multivitamin may reduce Cancer rate in men

10:53 AM ET

Multivitamins may prevent cancer in men

Taking a multivitamin may help prevent cancer in healthy middle-aged men, according to a new study published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The study

Scientists at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School recruited nearly 15,000 male physicians, 50 years or older, and followed them for more than a decade. Half took the daily multivitamin Centrum Silver; the others took a placebo.

Men in the vitamin group had a modest 8% reduction in cancer cases compared to the others.

"This study suggests, at least for men, that there might be benefits to taking multivitamins in terms of cancer,” study author Dr. John Michael Gaziano said in a press release. He is the chief of the Division of Aging at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

"Overall the study provides the first very nice piece of evidence that well-balanced – not overdose, not mega dose – combination of vitamins and minerals seems to have an effect at preventing cancer," said Dr. Boris Pasche, director of the Division of Hematology/Oncology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. "But more research is needed to validate this."

The researchers were not able to determine which types of cancers might be prevented when taking the vitamins.

They are also not sure that the results will be seen in other groups of people such as women or smokers. The men in this study were generally healthy physicians, not overweight or obese and most were non-smokers.

"It will be difficult to make generalizations to the broad public from this one study, but I was impressed by the data," said Dr. Ernest Hawk, vice president and division head for the Division of Cancer Prevention & Population Sciences at MD Anderson Center in Houston, Texas.

Vitamins: Friend or foe?

Back when the study began in 1997, most experts thought taking a vitamin would be beneficial to our health. But in the subsequent years, many scientists were alarmed by evidence suggesting potential harm from vitamin use. Newer studies found vitamin supplements didn't reduce the risk of cancer, and, in some cases, raised the risk of men and women developing cancer.

This latest study may once again lead experts to re-visit the issue. Pasche and Hawk, who did not participate in the research, said they are encouraged that after 10 years of study researchers did not see an increase in lung, colorectal, prostate and other cancers, but rather a modest decline in overall cancer cases.

Take home message

"I think this provides more data... that these sorts of supplements aren't associated with harm, so it removes the concern that many people had about the use of vitamin supplements drawing from recent data," explained Hawk.

Why might certain supplements offer protection again cancer? Experts aren't sure but said that the well-balanced formulation of nutrients in the multivitamin instead of mega doses may be part of the answer.

Pasche, who stopped taking vitamins back in the 2000s because of the cancer scare said, "This study will make me rethink this. You have a good rational to say from this study that it's not risky and could potentially help prevent a certain number of cancers."

Hawk is more cautious with his approach. He said that reducing cancer risk may not necessarily be garnered from a pill but rather by living healthy: eating right, getting plenty of exercise and not smoking.

Ultherapy on Good Morning America

Ultherapy on Good Morning America!
On Monday, Ultherapy was featured on Good Morning America (GMA)! New Jersey's Dr. William Song and his reality star patient, Jacqueline Laurita, were interviewed about the procedure in the recurring segment, "Wrinkle Rehab."
The segment did a great job touting how Ultherapy fits into Jacqueline's beauty routine that combines "old school wisdom and the cutting edge of cosmetic breakthroughs." It also hit upon some of the treatment's key benefits, including that it's non-surgical, has no downtime and offers noticeable results.
You'll notice that there weren't any mentions of pain in the segment. In advance of the air date, we were able to educate the GMA producers about the new Ultherapy Amplify treatment update to improve comfort. This may or may not have played a role in GMA's decision to not talk about how the treatment feels, but we hope the Amplify update coupled with this great media coverage will help spark even more interest in the treatment in your practice!

Watch the Segment!

The clip from the show is now available in the Customer Portal. You can also check it out on our YouTube Channel.

A simple Cellulite Solution- sort of!

Do this with coffee, say goodbye to cellulite

  • AnotherCellulite.JPG

     

It isn’t always easy being beautiful, and some women–ahem, some Women’s Health Facebook fans–go to great lengths to enhance what their mamas gave ‘me.

In fact, when we asked our fans to share their weirdest beauty tricks, they told us about putting coconut oil in their hair, witch hazel under their eyes, showering in ice-cold water, applying aspirin face masks and slathering lip balm on their bikini lines.

 

 

Not surprisingly, we thought some of these tips sounded crazy…until we asked Women’s Health natural beauty expert Renée Loux to reveal whether they actually work. This week, we cross our fingers to find out: Do coffee grinds smooth away cellulite?

Renée’s verdict: This treatment can be moderately effective.

Try using fresh ground coffee to maximize the benefits, as it has more antioxidants and caffeine than used coffee grounds.

Try this coffee-grind cocktail: Mix 1/4 cup ground coffee with 3 tablespoons hot water and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes to absorb the water and form a paste.

Then, mix in 2 tablespoons of olive oil to help bind the grinds. (This will make it easier to spread on, and offer extra moisturizing effects.) Cleanse problem areas in a warm shower, then turn off the water and apply the scrub by massaging in a circular motion for two to four minutes with your hands or a washcloth.

Rinse with warm water to remove all grounds, then pat dry and moisturize if desired.

How it works: The caffeine and antioxidants in coffee are moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term. As a stimulant, the caffeine in coffee dilates blood vessels, which temporarily tones and tightens tissue. Plus, it increases circulation and reduces water retention, both of which may also help smooth the rumpled look of cellulite. The antioxidants in coffee may help to release toxins, which is not only helpful for cellulite, but for healthy skin in general.
