The Beauty Bulletin Striving to Meet Needs and Expectations AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2022 THROUGH INTEGRITY AND GENUINE CARE

Though plastic surgery isn’t a new trend by any means, the number of people getting cosmetic procedures has risen steadily over the past several years. Body positivity is a major part of the cultural lexicon, and for some people — and I’ve witnessed it firsthand — that boost of confidence that comes from surgery can translate into other areas of their lives. Unfortunately, not every single person who receives plastic surgery loves the results. Even worse, some procedures can leave them with more problems than they had to begin with. But, if you do your research and choose a board-certified plastic surgeon, the results can be extraordinary. I have built a reputation as an honest, informative practitioner with not only the skills and background to perform the highest quality of surgical and non-surgical procedures, but also the approachability and empathy of a trusted adviser to every patient that walks through our door. I constantly strive to develop a candid, instructive, and supportive rapport with each patient. I feel as though they choose me because of how I genuinely care for them and how I apply the best approach to meet their needs and expectations. With such a high volume of revisionary surgeries, I like to outline all the advantages and disadvantages of each possible option to allow my patients to make the most informed decision they can for themselves. Together, we can determine the best course of action based on clear communication. I do like to take a principled, artistic approach to surgery and employ the latest and best technologies, but I always take the extra time with patients to answer any questions regarding those technologies. I was recently awarded the Best of Bay Area and Friendswood Reader’s Choice Award for the best Breast Specialist from Living Magazine! So, I must be doing something right! Most of our clientele comes to us via word of mouth, and I sincerely appreciate our patient’s tendency to refer friends and family members to our practice. There are a variety of reasons someone may choose to have plastic surgery, and whatever reason it may be, speaking with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help you better understand your options. Plastic surgery

complications are rare, but you can reduce the risk of unwanted side effects by fully vetting your doctor and their credentials. An unsatisfactory result does not necessarily mean the surgeon did anything wrong. We’ve all heard a horror story or two, and most of the time they resulted from procedures done by unqualified surgeons.

The incidence of complications is

much higher when the procedures are performed in salons

and spas and by untrained persons. When surgery really goes wrong, the results can be permanent pain, disfigurement due to severe scarring or asymmetry, paralysis, or even death. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I consistently meet the high standards of safety, results, and ethics. My dedication to my patients’ safety is part of the reason I was invited to serve on the patient safety committee for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). It can be tricky choosing between all the plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons in our area, but I hope we can welcome you to our facility and you can see for yourself what makes us so unique. –Dr. Sam Sukkar

These exercises help with balance.

Though we may not always think about it, balance is essential to just about everything we do in our daily routines. From simply getting out of bed, leaning over to tie our shoes, or even walking to the mailbox, we need good balance to keep ourselves steady while performing normal tasks. Know why balance is important. Balance is the ability to control your body’s position, whether stationary or moving. It is a key component of fitness that many people neglect while developing their fitness regimen. Balance training is a great way to help your body recognize where it is and control movements in a given space. When the body knows where its limbs are in space — known as proprioception — it is able to produce smooth, controlled movements with fewer risks of injuries. Reaction time and agility are also improved with balance training. The body learns how to quickly correct itself but not overcompensate and has the ability to quickly change direction effectively and efficiently. Though balance training is important for everyone, it is especially important for those who have problems due to illness, weakness, or dizziness. It allows them to overcome stiffness or unsteadiness and to develop an awareness of body segments and how to align them.

Balance training involves exercises to strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright and improve stability. These types of exercises can be done as often as you like or even every day.

Consider trying the following exercises:

• Standing with your weight on one leg and raising the other leg to the side or behind you. • Putting one heel right in front of the other foot, as if you were walking a tightrope. • Standing up and sitting down from a chair without using your hands. • Walking while alternating knee lifts with each step. • Stretching and gentle movement as part of yoga or tai chi. Balance is essential to living a healthy, functional life. It’s important to incorporate balance training into your fitness regimen. That way you can decrease the risk of injuries and help move freely and confidently.

Improving and Inspiring Confidence

There are plenty of valid reasons why women pursue breast enhancement surgery — for the aftermath of breastfeeding, for reconstruction after breast cancer, or simply to change the way they look cosmetically. Read on to learn more about a few of the services here at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery. Breast Lift This surgical procedure aims to raise and uplift sagging or deflated breasts. It is referred to as mastopexy by those in the medical community. During a consultation, your doctor will go over which type of lift is appropriate and any preliminary steps you should take before. The types of breast lifts include: • Crescent lift, for minimal sagging • Periareolar lift, for mild sagging • Lollipop lift, for moderate to severe sagging • Full mastopexy, for extreme sagging

After general anesthesia, your doctor will make incisions around the areola, making sure to remove any excess skin and tighten the area. Once the incisions are closed with sutures, you will be sent home to recover! You may experience some mild pain, but it should disappear within a few days. Bruising and swelling are normal in the treatment area, but be sure to limit your activities for about a week. After three weeks, you can return to your normal routine without any restrictions. Breast Augmentation This procedure is used to restore breasts that have been lost due to cancer or physical trauma. It recreates a perky, natural-looking breast and dramatically improves the patient’s quality of life both physically and emotionally.

to expand your skin over a period of a few weeks. Once the expansion is complete, incisions will be made to insert the implants. It’s less invasive and ideal for slender women who don’t have enough excess fat. • Flap Reconstruction: First, the skin, fat, and muscle are removed from the buttocks, back, and abdominal areas. Then the tissues

are transferred over to the chest area to create brand-new breasts that are more natural looking.

You may feel weak and unable to perform daily tasks the first 10 days after the procedure. There will be some swelling and bruising, but it will subside on its own as your progress. You can resume most activities within the first week, with a full return to your normal lifestyle within three weeks. For more information and other options for breast surgeries, check out DrSukkar.com or call us at 281-940-1535 to set up a consultation!

Fall Color Wheel The best way to explore autumn’s colors is by creating a fall color wheel hunt! Since the leaves are the surest signs of fall, kids can compare and contrast the different colors of each leaf they find, making this a fun hands-on activity. You can either download a color wheel template from the internet or make one yourself! All you need is a piece of paper that’s big enough for kids to tape the leaves onto and different areas for the colors red, yellow, orange, and brown. This will help kids see the different kinds of leaves as well as their visual changes during the season. The weather is getting colder, but it doesn’t mean you have to hibernate too! Bundle up with a cozy sweater and beanie, and encourage the family to get outside to explore all of the wonderful changes autumn has to offer.

As the leaves begin to fall and the air becomes cooler, it is a sure sign that summer is slowly coming to an end. Though we will miss the pool parties and backyard barbecues, there is still lots to look forward to during fall. Autumn is known as the season of change, and getting the kids outside allows them to understand and explore the changes going on in the world around them. Creating a fall scavenger hunt is a great way for kids to practice their reading and observation skills, all while still enjoying the outdoors. Signs of Fall Creating a specific scavenger hunt for signs of autumn is a great way to enhance your child’s observation skills.

Consider the following for your signs of fall hunt:

1. Leaves that have changed colors 2. Tree seeds or pine cones that have fallen to the ground

3. Items from a fall harvest (like pumpkins, sunflowers, or hay bales) 4. Changes among people’s apparel (such as jackets, hats, and scarves) 5. Animals hibernating or migrating
