Are you happy with your appearance? If the answer is no, you are hardly alone.

The rise in gym memberships and cosmetic surgeries in recent years indicates as much, and surveys further underscore Americans’ insecurity with their looks. A study conducted at Chapman University and published in the journal Body Image found that women and men were about equally unimpressed with their own appearance. Out of 12,176 respondents, only 26 percent of women were “extremely satisfied” with their looks, and just 28 percent of men were.

Dr. Dennis Schimpf Interview – Finding Beauty

“Plastic surgery has the potential to change virtually everything about a person on some level,” Dr. Schimpf says. “Few things can single-handedly alter a person in such a way.”

“However, for some people, beauty is only about physical attributes. For others, beauty is about who that person is within, and how that person makes others feel. That’s what any person considering cosmetic plastic surgery must understand: Where is true beauty found?”

Don’t Set Foot at the Beach or Pool This Summer if You’re Using These Skincare Products

You’re all set for a fun day in the sun with your wide-brimmed hat to shield you from the UV rays, and you have given your waterproof SPF 30 or higher plenty of time to absorb into your skin. To play it safe, you have brought more suntan lotion to reapply after swimming or sweating. You are a dermatologist’s dream – or so you think! Have you given any thought to what you applied to your skin the night before or that morning before your set out for your day? The answer is you probably have not if you have concocted a skincare regimen that works for your skin type. The problem: What is effective for Winter, Spring and Fall, can cause significant photo-sensitivity (read burning) and other skin complications come Summer. We turned to Dr. Manish Shah, a Board- Certified Denver, Colorado plastic surgeon to reveal what types of products/ingredients sun worshippers should avoid and what can serve as safe substitutes.

Dr. Shah explains that “Certain ingredients in products make people photosensitive. Photosensitivity (or sun sensitivity) is inflammation of the skin induced by the combination of sunlight and certain medications or substances. This causes skin redness and may look similar to a sunburn. Both the photosensitizing medication or chemical and light source have to be present in order for a photosensitive reaction to occur. Consumers should understand that it is not brands of skincare that can make one photosensitive but rather the ingredients in those brands.”

Plastic surgery in the past was an option most often associated with adults, especially older adults, who desired to improve their appearance. But the number of teenagers undergoing plastic surgery is trending upward.

Nearly 230,000 cosmetic procedures were performed on patients from the ages of 13 to 19 in 2017, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Doctors say part of the reason is due to the social media explosion, but they add that it’s also to fix a feature that makes teens a target of bullying, or to address a health need.

Turn back the clock and look younger

CHARLESTON, S.C. – It’s human nature that as people grow older, they want to look younger. The tendencies of aging can make that desire an uphill climb for many people. Even if they feel energetic and healthy, they may look old and tired.

“Women and men ages 45 to 65 really start to notice a difference in their skin when they look in the mirror,” Dr. Dennis Schimpf, author of “Finding Beauty: Think, See and Feel Beautiful” and founder of Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery, said. “Healthy living makes them feel great on the inside, but on the outside, the years can take a toll.
