Redness and Rosacea

Check out my latest segment on Studio 11 Fox discussing redness and rosacea

Women Dies after Injecting Beef Fat into Face

Want to get rid of those wrinkles without paying a lot of money? Some people take at home procedures to the next level. An Illinois woman recently died of a bacterial infection after injecting her face with hot beef fat in an apparent attempt to self-treat wrinkles, ABC news reports.

The women had appeared to a local ER complaining that her face was burning after her home injections. The women had infections and scarring due to the procedure, however a autopsy later determined she died of peritonitis.

There are many people injecting themselves at home, however I would never recommend this. Check out the video below showing a segment from Studio 11 LA where I discuss other things people inject into their own face.

A Cure for Cankles

Do you know what “cankles” are?  If not, you probably don’t have them, but if you do, you are probably pretty conscious of them, and try to hide them most of the time.  “Cankles” is a term to describe a person who has thick ankles… in other words, their calf, which is usually the widest part of the leg below the knee, doesn’t taper down towards the ankles, so the lower legs are thicker, resembling tree trunks.  I know, that’s a terrible, but very accurate description of this condition.  Many may not know that cankles can be minimized pretty simply using liposuction under local anesthesia alone!
Watch Carmen talk about her cankles on Studio11LA on Fox 11 and see how I use liposuction to help eliminate them!

Workplace Divided

Are you ready for some football? We are. At our office we are a “house divided”. Myself being an USC alumni I have plenty of cardinal and gold ready to don for the football season. Dr. Lee is an UCLA alumni and has plenty of love for her bruins. We also have this guy who is a big time Jets fan. It’s that time of year for some friendly rivalry. Here are some other football paraphernalia strewn around the office.

Does football season invade your office as well?

Petite Treats

 It’s Thursday, 3pm before a long holiday weekend. The end of the week is close, but not close enough. Everyone in the office is a bit sluggish. Then someone shows up with these awesome treats. Mini ice cream cones and ice cream sandwiches. Just enough for a little pick-me-up without the guilt.

How cute are these?

We all enjoyed one… well maybe two 🙂
