Beverly Hills plastic surgeons offer thanksgiving healthy eating tips for staying thin.Thanksgiving is almost here, a time where we are encouraged to be thankful for the many different people, opportunities, challenges, friends, family, and other positive aspects in our lives.

We wanted to personally thank our patients, readers, and followers for their sincere loyalty to use over the years. It is an honor knowing that you all have entrusted us in supporting you with your decision to improve certain areas of your life – allowing you to feel young, thin, and beautiful.

Staying Thin During Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is meant to be about giving thanks, but many of us absolutely cannot wait to indulge in all the appetizing food. As tempting as it is, here are a few tips to keep in mind if you’re concerned about staying thin or if you simply do not want to feel guilty.

Don’t Skip Meals
– some people enjoy sleeping in and skipping out on breakfast knowing that they will be loading up during Thanksgiving dinner. We advise that you stick to your normal routine of eating so that you aren’t “going off of the deep end” come dinnertime.

Eat Healthy Options – Thanksgiving is not full of unhealthy options – in fact; many traditional options can be healthy for you. Lean turkey, yams, customized salads, we’re sure you’ll have healthy options available. Just go easy on the gravy and try pacing yourself.

Alcohol
– alcohol consumption typically leads to worse decisions – especially around food. For some, simple moderation on the alcohol front is enough to help them stay smart and thing throughout the day.

Workout
– working out the day after Thanksgiving is a great way to tackle the regret if you overdosed on dinner. It doesn’t take much either – a simple walk around the block is enough, but brownie points for you if you take it a step further (maybe brownie points are a great option in this scenario?).

All in all, whether you decide to indulge or not, make sure you enjoy your time with your families – and be thankful for the positive things in your life!

Happy Thanksgiving from the team here at Rexford Surgical Institute!

Just how popular is breast augmentation in AmericaBreast augmentation is a wildly popular cosmetic procedure; so popular that is happens to be the #1 cosmetic procedure performed on women. For curiosity sake, ever wonder just how popular breast augmentation is in America?

Based on data provided by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery since 1997, a specific user was able to come up with this interesting percentage.

1 in 26 women have undergone breast augmentation in America.

This amounts to around 4% of the total population of women in America. Depending on how you look at the situation, this may or may not seem like a large number. Most would likely see this as an astonishingly high number.

However, there are certain considerations to be aware of to account for the possibility of overestimating this statistic that was generated by a writer at DataLab. The considerations can be found here.

Main Takeaway from the Numbers

Regardless of whether you believe this number to be large or small, one thing is for sure: breast augmentation is indeed popular. Why is it so popular? Well, you can speculate many reasons as to why it’s a popular procedure, but it comes down to one important factor: society cares about the way you look. From job searching to your friends and family, people are quick to judge.

Cosmetic surgery is not necessarily a bad thing either. In fact, for many women it helps them restore their confidence because of a heightened self-esteem. Confidence goes a long way in our society, too. And with the advanced techniques and tools in the field offered today – breast augmentation becomes much more affordable as well as more convenient.

Dr. Golshani is a breast augmentation surgeon located in Beverly Hills and has performed a countless number of breast augmentations to many of his satisfied patients. He offers comfortable, private consultations in his office at Rexford Surgical Institute.

Removing Saline from Breast Implants to Reduce Size?

removing saline from breast implants to reduce sizeThose with breast implants are familiar with saline and how much of it was used to generate appropriate-sized breasts that catered to their needs. However, some patients receive breast implants that end up being too large for their tastes – often depressing these individuals. Many women wonder if it’s possible to remove saline from their existing breast implants in order to avoid replacing them. Is this even possible?

RSI Breast Surgeon’s Feedback

Dr. Golshani of Rexford Surgical Institute provides his very own feedback on removing saline from breast implants in order to reduce their size. The full answer is provided on realself.com where he has also answered many other thought-provoking questions related to cosmetic surgery procedures.

In short, Dr. Golshani first mentions that you should always wait at least 6 months before going back for a revision. Often times, patients quickly jump to the conclusion that they need their implants tweaked or fixed because of something they noticed early on. Make sure you follow your surgeon’s directions on post-op procedures – including healing times.

To answer the initial question… Yes, removing saline from a breast implant is possible but Dr. Golshani warns those who are considering it: “Removing saline from an implant may damage the port at the time of tubing insertion into the hub, but this is a rare event.”

Schedule a Consultation

Over-filling an under-filling implants also result in unwanted scenarios, so it’s important to discuss these matters in person with your surgeon. If you’re concerned, then schedule a consultation with a board-certified breast implant surgeon in order to discuss the matter in more detail, despite what you are able to find on the Internet. There are various factors that must be considered before deciding to remove saline from a breast implant. Surgeons cannot suggest the best plan of action unless you are physically examined in person.
