Face or Body
As our lives have been turned upside down, increasing the emphasis on communication via screens it’s hard not to notice what our faces look like, sometimes multiple times a day. Now that our state has begun to reopen and we pop out of the ground like little groundhogs, we realize that all of a sudden it’s nearly summer (Memorial Day is behind us). Spring passed us by while we were grumbling about Zoom meetings or having to rely on FaceTime to talk to family and friends. Our grooming and “maintenance” took a back seat while many of us watched the scale go up as we socially distanced.
Now we get to decide, what do we tend to first, the face or the body? On-screen communication isn’t going anywhere and we still have to look at our faces in the mirror. On the other hand, as the temperatures go up and we shed layers we become more motivated to reverse the effect of hibernation on our waistlines. We are happy to offer specials for the face, body, and that most basic of ingredients for any skin care routine: sunscreen.

On an unrelated note, the pandemic may have pushed the summer Olympics to next year, but before you know it we’ll be “enjoying” the distinctive sound of cicadas as this is their season to emerge from the ground in a 17-year life cycle and no virus will make them postpone! Chirp.
Lisa had been thinking about getting an upper blepharoplasty for several years but didn’t go through with it until this past year. Like many fifty-somethings, she is in a career she loves, finding it very rewarding and educational, but is working with a group of talented people that are younger than her. Although she eats right, exercises regularly and has always been told she looks younger than she actually is, she felt she looked “tired” at work and needed that fixed.
Are you dissatisfied with the external appearance of your genitalia? Has sex become painful or your sexual desire dipped? Or, do you experience some level of stress incontinence after having children? Many women have struggled with these issues and are now looking for a nonsurgical option to improve their quality of life.
Stacy, a woman in her forties, was unhappy with her breast size and shape. During her regular workout routine, she would constantly say to herself, “Breasts, stay put!”, but her breasts had other ideas. She saw herself as a “sloppy 36/38C” and sought to get them tightened up. A surgeon in Fairfield County provided a solution, and in 2006 she underwent a breast reduction and lift. He had warned her that in ten or so years she might want implants to counteract the effects of age and gravity.
Loving your appearance has become easier and more appealing to both men and women, as reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in their latest findings.
