Giving a Hoot in Enhancing Your Glutes

butt augmentation AtlantaButt augmentation in Atlanta is an option that individuals have when they want to enhance and reshape the gluteal area. There are a number of reasons why people would want to do this such as:

Buttocks which are too tiny for a particular body frame.Size or shapes of butts that make a person feel unattractive and self conscious.Clothes that do not fit well with the body figure. Weight loss that leaves a person’s buttocks, sagging, flat or loose.

For the entire process to happen successful, patients have to spend some time looking for experts in the field to carry out the procedure.

Once you have found the ideal surgeon, you will first have to hold consultations where you will explain the type of buttock shape that you would like to have. This will help the professional to understand your expectations and address them in a sober way to let you know if they can be realistically achieved. You should also be prepared to discuss your medical history with the surgeon so he/she can come up with the ideal treatment method. Some of the options that you have when it comes to butt augmentation in Atlanta include:

Autologous fat transfer

This is one of the methods that has been tried and tested to offer incredible results for enhancement of gluteal contours. This is where fat is transferred from one body part to the buttocks. Most popular donor sites include thighs, hips, back and abdomen. Liposuction is used to remove the fat cells and then it is injected into the buttock area in layers.

Gluteal implants

This is a process that involves inserting solid silicon implants on a fold that is made by making an incision on the butt cheeks. This is done on the area above the pelvic bone and below the gluteus muscle. It can also be done at the bottom of the gluteal crease and outer corners of the upper butt. The surgeon will provide detailed information on the location of the incisions as it usually depends on a patients unique circumstances. The periphery on the chicks is taped when the surgery is done as this helps the implants to stay in position allowing the tissues to heal. This is the ideal mode of treatment when heredity or congenital deformity is the cause of poorly defined or flat buttocks.

Butt augmentation in Atlanta can be performed at an office based surgical suite, a free standing ambulatory facility or in a hospital (http://www.atlantamedispas.org/#!gluteal-augmentation/c131e). There are some preoperative measures that are supposed to be taken before the big day like stopping smoking and taking some drugs. This is usually an outpatient procedure thus you need to make arrangements on how to go back home. General anaesthesia is normally administered for the patients comfort but there are cases where you might get intravenous sedation or local anaesthesia. Your surgeon will give you a list of instructions that you need to follow after the procedure that you are supposed to follow to the latter. In most cases, you can resume normal activities after about 10- 14 days.


The Pretty Ugly

beautyBeauty isn’t all that. In television as well as in real life, physical attractiveness does not necessarily mean attractiveness. Sometimes it can even be misleading, camouflaging some deep seated ugliness that gives every person who sees it an awful glimpse of an inferno that no Calgary winter can ever ease, that no skin care regimen, no plastic surgery can ever alleviate.

Take for example, Cersei Lannister. She is beautiful, and elegant, and has such a low soothing voice with the right amount of huskiness. But she is such a mean, selfish, venomous bitch. Watching her for a couple of episodes, one would find that her beauty and elegance seem to fade and disappear until only wickedness is left at the fore. In short, she becomes ugly in our eyes. She is only outdone in malevolence by her King Joffrey Baratheon, who is very good-looking, the type of good-looking in the tradition of Justin Bieber and those members of 90’s boybands, which would send many a young girl swooning for days on end. But one ceases to find him cute after some time. Because he is simply evil incarnate, the spawn of Satan himself, if Satan existed in Westeros.

Conversely, Tyrion initially comes off as an obnoxious little malformed imp. But once his inner goodness shows through, he mysteriously becomes, insanely appealing. He has intelligence, wit, cunning, charisma, and quite a bit of charm and compassion. One melts into a puddle of “awww” every time he shows his softer side. He became so easy to fall in love with, and one ends up really rooting for him.

Meanwhile, in another show, there’s Mister Barrow, the second butler from Downton Abbey. He is quite a handsome chap, very clean-cut and well-groomed. One could even assume that he smells good. But his evil conniving gets in the way of him becoming truly a beautiful man. In the course of the show’s 3 seasons, he has shown himself to be a liar, conniver, double-crosser, and coward. He’s such a snake, he can make the audience’s skin crawl with but a stare. Apart from Mrs. O’Brien, he is the show’s only villain.

Of course, these musings may just be a testament to the acting chops exhibited by these performers, but the characters they portray demonstrate so well how beauty is exuded and perceived by the mind and heart as well as the eyes.

What Goes On During a Facial?

Visiting the dermatology clinic for a facial can be just as relaxing and rejuvenating as a visit to the spa for some deep tissue massage. Lying in a cot for an hour or so with somebody’s gentle hands flitting about your face is manna for anybody who is starved for human contact.

So what’s the basic facial like?

First you are prepared for the procedure. The attendant will usually use a head band or a shower cap type thing to hold your hair away from your face. Then it’s the cleansing portions. A damp sponge will be smoothed all over the face, followed by a facial cleanser applied and massaged in by soft fingers. Then it is all wiped off with a sponge. Then it repeats, this time with an exfoliant, which is massaged in and sponged off as well.

More exfoliation follows, but this time using a mechanical implement that rotates a sponge or brush attachment. Usually there are three attachments used, one after the other, which is starting from the softest and widest to the rougher and smaller.

Then comes the steaming. The cosmetologist leaves you for a while with a stream of slightly cooled steam directed on your face. This opens up the pores which loosens up any blackheads you may have. This is the most peaceful, most pleasant part of the whole process. After this, a series of suction instruments will passed all over your face to pull out excess oils, blackheads and whiteheads.

And now the torture segment commences. The cosmetologist arms him- or herself with some pain wielding implements and proceeds to push, prick, and squeeze the more stubborn blackheads and whiteheads. This can be excruciating, and will go on for at least a few minutes, but it will feel like days and weeks.

Then an antiseptic will be applied to your face, which will sting just a bit. Or more. Then some kind of a photo emitting instrument is held over the face which serves to close up and tighten those now clean pores. And a moisturizer and sunblock is then applied to finish off the procedure.

There’s nothing much to fear from facials, apart from a few minutes of pain. If you’re in Baton Rouge, you may consult with Dr. Zedlitz and book your first facial.


Easy Italian Cooking

Nothing hits the spot like Italian food. They are just so comforting! Red wine risotto is such a great pick-me-up after a long, difficult day at work. And after a lifeless dead-end relationship has finally breathed its last, a hefty helping of pasta alfredo.

I haven’t met an Italian dish I didn’t like. They’ve got wonderful, rich and bold flavors, with such liberal use of those awesome formaggi. And don’t you just love the fragrance of basil and oregano and marjoram? And hunger has a way of going bye-bye with Italy’s gorgeous dishes. Who cares if they’re loaded with carbs? Tagliatelle ala puttanesca just makes the looming inconvenience of abdominoplasty in Fairfield in the near future so totally worth it.

When I tire of restaurant dining, I like to get my Italian fix at home. You can do so too, with not a lot of effort, using some store bought ingredients that eliminate some time-consuming steps. Want to make a quickie lasagna? Get some ready made béchamel and meat sauce and heat both in separate saucepans. Cheesify that white sauce with a handful of grated parmigiano. Adjust seasoning and add herbs, if desired. Grab a pack of frozen spinach and thaw, and a pack of dry, uncooked lasagna.

Layer a rectangular oven-proof glass casserole with your goodies. A layer of watered down meat sauce in the bottom, then pasta. This will prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom, as well as create the steam that will cook the dry lasagna noodles. Spread spinach on top of that, then cheese sauce. Then meat sauce on top of that. Then another layer of pasta, and go on piling layers on top of that until you reach near the top of the dish. Be generous with your sauces. Finish with a final layer of pasta and cheese sauce. Cover tightly with foil and bake in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Then take out the dish. You’ll see it bubbling inside. Remove the foil and watch out for a blast of steam. Top with more grated cheese and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the top has browned. Take it out of the oven, let rest for a few minutes, then enjoy.


Reasons to Laser an Ex’s Name Off Your Shoulder

We all do regrettable things while in a haze of passion, sentimentality or at while in the depths of an alcohol binge – especially while in the vicinity of a tattoo parlor.

There have been numerous warnings, and countless horror stories about having one’s current flame immortalized in one some part of one’s body – arm, thigh, chest, back – you name it, somebody’s probably done it. But all those deterrents are no match for pheromones and giddy love, and months or years down the line, there are still so many women (and men) who find themselves sporting some stranger’s name on their person and seriously wanting to kick themselves in the butt. Are you one of them?

But all is not lost. Thank goodness for advances in dermatology and laser technology that made tattoos only as permanent as one wants them to be. Many laser skin centers offer tattoo removal now. Granted, there will be some pain in removing a tattoo, possibly more pain than what was experienced while getting it, but consider it punishment for being colossally stupid. That should make anyone think twice, and even thrice, about tattooing any letters on any body part, and perhaps proofread for any spelling or grammatical errors.

The person being an ex is definitely reason enough to laser his or her name off of you. But, if you need more reasons…

1. You are now involved with someone else. You don’t want your ex to make your current relationship a threesome, would you? But that’s exactly what you’re doing as long as his or her name is anywhere your current lover can see and read.

2. It was relationship hell. Perhaps you got beaten up or cheated on, or were given some VD, or maybe you just had a bad experience over all and would like nothing better than to close that chapter of your life and not open it again. Closure is not complete until you’ve erased the offending name from your skin.

3. The tat’s ugly. There may be a cool factor to have something to remember a past love by, but if the tattoo artist was a bumbling or sloppy idiot, you’d certainly want to mop up that mess.

4. You wised up. Perhaps you learned your lesson to not broadcast your mistakes. Or maybe you just learned to be more discreet and tasteful. Either way, a clean slate is in order.

There, that should be enough. Go hit Ctrl+backspace on your tattoo mistakes. If you’re in Long Island, make an appointment with Dr. Lisa Makrides.


Dieting is B*tch

liposuction pittsburghSo today I’ve come to a realization… I’ll never be a skinny girl. I think I’ve known this for a while, it’s just that it was particularly hard to accept, given that I’ve been dieting and busting my butt at the gym, trying to drop those last 5 (more like 10) pounds. I could totally relate to Julia Roberts’s character in Notting Hill, when she said, “I’ve been on a diet every day since I was nineteen, which basically means I’ve been hungry for a decade. “

So now all that effort, all that hard work, those awful lemon and water breakfasts, and equally awful salad lunches, those curls and lunges and squats – they’re all for nothing, I fear. And I’ve friggin’ had enough. It’s time for me to enjoy life and all the pleasures it offers.

Yes, I’m wallowing, and I am drowning my sorrows right now with my buddies Ben and Jerry, and their yummy Cherry Garcia ice cream. And later on I’ll be going out for some honest-to-goodness margarita with a couple of girlfriends. I refuse to count calories anymore.

So how am I going to fit in that bridesmaid’s dress for this wedding in Pittsburgh a couple of months from now? I don’t know. I could just have them take out the seams. I mean, what’s the point of getting myself measured anyway, if the seamstress and the bride just bullied me into fitting into pre-set proportions. Grrr. The should cut the dress to fit the girl and not the other way around.

In any case, maybe I should just take the shortcut and set up a liposuction procedure for myself like that of the Advanced Liposuction Center. I think I can afford it. Thinking of all that money I saved on food. Although I am quite terrified. I’ve never gone under the knife before. I mean, what if I don’t wake up? What if I die, or worse, become a vegetable?? Maybe I should check out one of those non-invasive options, something that doesn’t require a general anesthesia. Yeah, that should work.

Disclaimer: Please note that I’m not myself right now. Maybe after I’ve gorged on more ice cream I could be guilted into hitting the treadmill again. Maybe.


Woe to Spider Veins!

spider veinsUgh… look out! Rant-fest incoming!

So it’s summer, right, and it’s getting hotter by the minute. I’ve busted out my summer gear and all, and I just want to have some fun in the sun. I’ve got my adorable little shorts and flip-flops, and I’ve gone shopping for cute tank tops, sundresses, and all sorts of beach wear.

Now here comes the awful part. I CAN’T WEAR THEM! At least not any of the leg-baring stuff. It’s the attack of the spider veins! No, not Spiderman — spider veins! If it were Spiderman — I don’t care if it’s Maguire or Garfield — why on earth would I not want to be attacked by a hottie superhero? Hmm, maybe I’ll even do the attacking… but I digress…

Where were we? Oh yes, spider veins. I’ve got these horrible, ugly, unsightly, messed up mesh of fine blue, purple, and red lines all over my legs! Grr, I sooo hate them! With a passion! I foresee a summer spent wearing jeans. Ak! It’s going to be so hot! And not in a good way. Maybe I’ll wear the shorts, but if I do, I’m going to be so self-conscious! Strictly no strutting. Ugh, I hate thissss!

And when Googled “spider veins” — I can’t help but feel paranoid. It said it could mean that there’s some kind of back-flow reflux kind of thing happening to my blood circulation. I know that’s not good. And worse it could be the harbinger of even worse things, like varicose veins.

How, why did I get them? I’m sure it’s all those hours I’ve spent standing in line for coffee (why can’t people decide what they want before hand instead of taking so long to make their coffee order?). Or maybe it’s too much walking around in the mall? But that can’t be it, right? It’s just walking — it’s exercise!

Any ideas on how to get rid of these? I suppose I should go see a doc in Soffer Health Care. I hope there’s someone I can see in Miami…

I went and whined to my friend Abby from Phoenix and says she has experienced the same thing, and seems very happy with the treatment she got from her doctor, sclero-something or other.


Nursing Is Just One of Many Medical Professions

By now, everyone knows that nursing can be a rewarding, flexible and lucrative career path that allows you to make a direct difference in people’s lives. However, I’m hearing more and more about another up-and-coming career path that is showing a lot of promise. Here are the basics, as summarized by forums2001.ca.


Should You Look Into a Nursing Career?

Many people are out of work across North America right now. It’s no surprise, either – the economy’s in the toilet, and Wall Street is pocketing our tax dollars. So the natural response for many people is to consider changing careers, and one of the most rapidly expanding fields in North America is (surprisingly to some people) is the field of healthcare – specifically, nursing.

Registered nurse Shauna Jackson is a vocal member of the healthcare community when it comes to advocating the role of nurses in the healthcare system, and as you can see from her website, she is an authority on a wide range of nursing and healthcare employment-related topics, from jobs in Maryland to international travel nursing companies, and everything in between.

As surprising as it may seem, registered nurses – and the more educated and experienced advanced practice registered nurses (hell, even certified nurse assistants) – command some exceptionally high salaries in North America, as well as having excellent job retention rates and employment prospects. There is a shortage of doctors across Canada and the United States, and that void is being filled by dedicated, highly educated and highly specialized nursing staff, ranging from surgical nurses to nurse practitioners and covering a wide swath of skillsets in between.

The salaries are nothing to sneeze at, either – the nurse practitioner salary can be upwards of $60,000 USD per year, and can rise much, much higher after several years of experience have been gained. Doctors make a good deal more, of course, but the education cost of getting a masters or doctor of nursing degree compared with pre-med and then medical school is much, much lower – and the competition, at least for the moment, is also a bit easier.

As for the healthcare job market, there’s one thing that’s changing the stakes: America is getting

older. The so-called ‘baby boomer’ generation is expanding the nation’s elderly population dramatically, along with the birth rate, as their grandchildren are being born. This creates a number of jobs through the life care spectrum, from nursing jobs in Florida to working as a neonatal nurse. What is a neonatal nurse, you ask? They specialize in care of mother and baby during the entire pregnancy, as well as the time afterwards, which can be both spiritually (and monetarily) rewarding.

So if you’re considering a career move, think carefully about the perks of moving into a health-care related field. The pay is good, the jobs are there, and most of all, you can spend your entire workday taking care of people and healing America.
