The Human Barbie Diet

No Comments

Valeria Lukyanova, also known on the internet as the Human Barbie, has gained fame by looking like the famous doll through “plastic surgery, makeup and Photoshop techniques.” She has many followers on Instagram and over 994,000 Facebook fans. She has recently revealed that in order to keep her Barbie-like figure, she has followed a diet called Breatharianism. This is the belief that humans can live off of light and air.

Achieving a Barbie Body

Lukyanova did not start her Breatharianism right away. She had to train “herself to require smaller and smaller amounts of food, with the goal of giving up sustenance entirely.” Breatharians believe that they get their nutrition through light and air alone just like plants, but plants also need water and Breatharians seem to also believe that humans do not need that much. But, of course, doctors do not recommend taking this course of diet (or lack thereof) and it has been reported that Breatharianism has “been linked to several deaths as adherents actually starved themselves to death.” Plus, humans and plants are not the same. A physician has said that “plants have what are called chloroplasts that contain chlorophyll and they have the ability to capture energy from the sunlight,” but “humans don’t have chlorophyll or chloroplasts.” What humans need to do is “derive energy from external sources, that can be either fat or protein or carbohydrates, but it can’t be sunlight.”

When Proper Diet and Exercise Alone Are Not Enough

It is common sense that in order to get a desired body shape, a proper healthy diet and exercise is the way to go. But, for some that is not enough. At Dr. Angelchik’s practice, he offers body contouring and liposuction procedures that are sure to help a potential patient get the body he/she wants. If diet and exercise is not enough for you and need extra help, contact Dr. Angelchik’s office to set up an appointment for a consultation.

Celebrity Face Swap

No Comments

With news and social media inundating the masses with celebrity gossip and fashions, it is inevitable that those who catch up with a certain celebrity might want to emulate what the celebrity has. There are those who admire a celebrity so much that he or she would resort to plastic surgery to get the admired celebrity features.

Resorting to Plastic Surgery

Back then, those who got celebrity inspired plastic surgery only took physical attributes to consideration. Now, some take personality and charisma of a celebrity as inspiration. A woman named Kitty recently underwent six plastic surgeries to look like Jennifer Lawrence. Kitty not only thinks the actress is beautiful, she is also drawn to her “spunky and fun” personality. The six procedures that Kitty went through were liposuction for her face and body, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and fat grafts to her buttocks and cheeks. These days it takes more than just a star’s physical attributes to inspire a plastic surgery change; it is a combination of “personality, good looks and self-empowerment.” But, wanting certain features of a celebrity is not always a guarantee. The plastic surgeon who has worked on Kitty has said that he has evaluated “14 to 15,000 new consultants” and he could “tell very quickly within a matter of a minute if the patient is well adjusted or not well adjusted for whatever the procedure they might present.” Kitty was able to qualify getting the Plastic Surgery Procedures since she resembles the actress in a less refined way and has a logical standpoint on getting the procedures.

Using Cosmetic Surgery as Refinement

While it is understandable to want a feature(s) like a favorite celebrity, there are things to take into consideration like how realistic are the expectations and can the end result be achieved with Cosmetic Procedures? At Dr. Angelchik’s practice, he offers free in-person consultations that allow a potential patient an opportunity to asks questions and learn about the risks. Also, as a reminder, his practice is offering a Spring Specials deal of 10% off surgeon’s fee for a cosmetic surgery/procedure until April 30, 2014.

Skin Care Must Be A Habit

No Comments

healthy skinSkin care that leads to healthy beautiful skin must be made a lifestyle. Skin care is the main focus for Jana Dreebin, medical aesthetician for the Claro Clinic. Jana educates her clients concerning the best ways to maintain  effective skin care methods for optimal results. Skin care is not only comprised of in office treatments, but also at home treatments. Jana educates her clients on both  treatments, which is the basis for the relationships that she has developed with her clients.  Jana shares important lifestyle tips with her clients that will improve their skin care program.

Healthy Skin  Care Tips

Healthy skin care tips for every client include first and foremost- quitting smoking. Smoking is likely the worst thing you can do for your body, including your skin, — yet 20 percent of Americans are still lighting up. Nicotine and different chemicals found in cigarettes crush the skin’s elastin and collagen, prompting wrinkles. Smoking additionally takes a toll on the skin’s veins, choking the oxygen stream and making your skin seem dull and colorless. Periodic smoking can likewise prompt those pucker lines around the mouth, known as smokers lip. Healthy skin is also compromised by wine, sweets and espresso . Liquor and stimulants … act like a diuretic and keep you from clutching water, so your skin looks kind of prune-like. It can look dry and look washed out. Sweets and empty nourishment hold a great deal of additives and that will also dehydrate. These type of poor eating habits make healthy skin difficult to attain. Jana recommends about six to eight glasses of water for every day; however, in the event that you’re drinking a ton of lattes to get past the day, you’ll have to drink much more water to keep your skin looking pretty.

Beautiful Skin for Life

Beautiful skin starts with a healthy life style. When you don’t rest, anxiety causes the arrival of the hormone cortisol, (which) makes your skin irritated (and) causes pimple inflammation, which makes your skin look less magnetic. Treating skin gently when it is inflamed is the best way to achieve beautiful skin.  When your skin breaks out, don’t clean your face excessively and rough.  When you have pimple inflammation do not attempt to clean away your skin inflammation; this can lead to chafed faces as an aftereffect of cleaning or over washing. Beautiful skin is also created and maintained by using the proper amount of sun screen. ”Sunscreen is the way to energetic skin” says Dreebin. Jana offers complimentary skin care consultations.

No Comments

Liposuction Liposuction is often the first thing people think of when they think of quick ways to get thin.  Do you wish you could get thin quickly? Our society’s fixation on slenderness may not be at fault. A study finds that heredity impacts the huge number of ladies who get tied up with the thought that thin is the equivalent to beautiful. Liposuction or a tummy tuck, even though they are surgical procedures with risk would be welcomed by many women if the result would net a thin figure. A recent study showed heredity or nature, may be to blame for who is thin and who is not. The study distributed online Oct. 3 in the Worldwide Diary of Dietary problems  found genes to be a determining factor in thinness.  Liposuction is never a quick fix. Plastic surgeons explain that liposuction is a procedure designed to remove small amounts of fat not to make someone thin.

Plastic Surgery and the Desire for Thinness

Plastic surgery media and magazines have taken the rap for much of American ladies’ physique disappointment. A long rundown of studies have found that illusion of the Hollywood excellence has fueled dietary problems, for example, anorexia, bulimia and less-extreme sustenance issues, for example, purposely abstaining from food. Plastic surgery often shares the blame for these social ills although it may be unwarranted.  In studies of twins scientist found that the more comparative the genes, the more comparable the propensity to gain weight . Scientist also found that women respond differently to advertisements promoting thin models and evern plastic surgery. For some women the advertisements have little to know effect  on their thoughts.

Tummy Tuck a Path To A Skinny Waist

Tummy tuck has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgery  procedures. Most patients choose the procedure because they believe that it will provide a skinny waist. Dr Angelchik explains to patients that the tummy tuck will provide an enhanced look for their waist.  A tummy tuck is not a guarantee that a patient will be skinny.  Tummy tuck is a surgery and should never be taken lightly.  Tummy tuck can be an excellent recommendation for women who have had children and have excess skin as a result. Patients should prepare for tummy tuck surgery by being well within their ideal body weight prior to having surgery. Liposuction can be combined with tummy tuck under controlled and expert hands. Dr Angelchik encourages patients to call  602-375-8888 for a complimentary consultation  to determine which procedures are right for each patient.


Plastic Surgery Pushed by the Popular ” Selfies “

No Comments

woman talking on cell phonePlastic Surgery is on the rise and fueled by many different trends. According to a recent study by the American Institute of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the ubiquity of “selfies” is having an enormous effect on facial plastic surgery.  The study found that one out of three plastic surgeons participating in the study saw an expansion in request for facial plastic surgery  procedures because of patients being more mindful of looks with online networking.

Social apps like Instagram, Snapchat and the iphone application, which are singularly picture based, are centered around patients holding a magnifying lens up to their picture and regularly taking an up close and more discriminating look  toward oneself than at any other time in recent memory summarized by  Edward Farrior, MD, President of the American Institute of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in a press discharge.

Face lift, Rhinoplasty, Sought After Pocedures

Face lift, rhinoplasty and other procedures are magnified in online photos and are bound to increase in number. More youthful individuals are getting these  plastic surgery procedures. The study found that 58 percent of surgeons saw an increment in surgery from individuals under 30. Face lift procedures are sought after typically by men and women over 30. Most concerns are for wrinkles on the neck and a classic face lift will provide a more youthful appearance.  Rhinoplasty tends to be a selection for the patients who are less than 30 and are concerned with their facial appearance. Rhinoplasty  is a procedure that can have a significant impact on the overall contour and profile of the most patients.

Cosmetic Surgery is a  Part of Social Media

The main five things most patients are most concerned with are outcomes, costs, recuperation, torment and scars. If  they are determined to stay aggressive in the workforce, remain magnetic to their mate or essentially to look as youthful and energetic as they feel, cosmetic surgery is going to be the option chosen most often. As recuperation times are diminished and effects are more inconspicuous, cosmetic surgery becomes a more practical choice for youthful men and ladies.”

Ladies are as of now getting more plastic surgery than men. In 2013, 81 percent of ladies represented all plastic surgery procedures.

Men and ladies choose different cosmetic surgery procedures. For men, the most frequently chosen cosmetic surgery procedures were BOTOX , fillers, hair transplants, and rhinoplasties. For ladies, the most frequently sought after cosmetic surgery procedrues were facelifts and rhinoplasties.

BOTOX was still the most well known non-surgical treatment among  ladies accompanied  with fillers, mico- peels/microdermabrasion, and non-ablative restoration.

The study found that spouses and wives were both likely to have cosmetic surgery. Over 30 percent of the surgeons said they saw an expansion in wedded couples getting it.

beautiful skin careSkin care as a priority is a commitment that many of us rarely make unless we begin to see things we do not like.

These products and services are a multi-billion dollar industry mostly due to our desire to have healthier, more clear and  youthful looking skin.

PMS Diet

No Comments

Ladies, you know what it is like to get PMS or pre-menstrual syndrome. The mood swings, the bloating, outbursts, and weird food cravings just goes with the territory. But, those food cravings are sure to ruin whatever hard work you put for your body. Instead of accepting it, there are foods that actually help alleviate the symptoms of PMS.

Foods That Battle PMS

  1. Have a glass of wine: Drink a glass of wine with dinner during the week before your period. That one drink per day is linked to helping with “fewer pre-period mood changes and headaches.”
  2. Eat more sweet potatoes: Eating sweet potatoes (i.e. in a mashed style) can help create new serotonin, the chemical that helps with mood swings and food cravings. Also, in order for it to work correctly, they need to be “eaten straight with no fat or protein.”
  3. Drink more skim milk: The calcium in skim milk helps reduce muscle spasms and tension. It also helps reduce “mood swings, anxiety and irritability.” Also, four or more servings of skim milk helps lower the risk of PMS problems by 46 percent.
  4. Incorporate ginko biloba: Ginko biloba can help reduce bloating. There was a study where the group that took “40-milligram ginko tablets three times a day for two months during the last half of their menstrual cycles” had PMS symptoms reduced by 20 percent as compared to the placebo takers.
  5. Load up on spinach: Spinach is full of magnesium, which helps reduce stress. Also, magnesium helps reduce the chance of migraines and fatigue.

At Dr. Angelchik’s practice, we understand that sometimes a patient seeks our help when diet and exercise fails them. We have all sorts of body contouring procedures to help you get the figure you want. Also, we still have our breast augmentation specials going on until February 28.

Young Female Smokers and Common Breast Cancer Connection

No Comments

woman holding cigaretteThere is new research that suggests that young female smokers who “currently smoke and who have smoked one pack of cigarettes a day for 10 years or more” are at higher risk for estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer – the most common form of breast cancer. This is comparison to women who have smoked for only a short period of time. The study of the connection between breast cancer and habitual smoking was recently published in the science and medicine journal Cancer.

10 Year Smoking Habit Increases Risk by 60%

The research was held at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. The researchers brought in 778 women who had estrogen receptor-positive cancer, 182 women who had triple-negative breast cancer and 938 women who were cancer-free. Estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer is when breast cancer cells “have a significant number of receptors for estrogen” and is the type of cancer that is “more likely to respond to hormonal therapies.” Triple-negative breast cancer is more aggressive and not positive receptors for estrogen, progesterone or HER2. All the women in the study were between the ages of 20 and 44 years of age. Those with breast cancer in the study were diagnosed between 2004 and 2010. Each woman in the study were asked about their smoking history and questions related to smoking. Those who smoked more than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime had an increased risk of breast cancer by 30% overall as compared to the women who never smoked. The current or recent smokers and those “who had been smoking one pack of cigarettes a day for at least a decade” had an increased risk of estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer by 60%. Also, the researchers “found no link between smoking in young women and the risk of triple-negative breast cancer.”

Importance of Looking After One’s Health and Body

The big take away from this study is there is no good reason to take up smoking; especially when it is linked to breast cancer. At Dr. Angelchik’s practice, we offer our expertise in breast augmentation, breast reconstruction and other body surgeries. Also, we still have our New Year’s specials going on for breast augmentation until February 28. If you are thinking about breast surgery or other body improvements, contact Dr. Angelchik’s office to set up an appointment for a consultation.
