Forget what Jenny McCarthy says. There’s absolutely no link between vaccines given during infancy and rates of autism later on in life. But the lack of scientific evidence hasn’t stopped plenty of Americans from casting aside the better judgment of their pediatric physicians and foregoing vaccines in favor of “taking their chances.”
That’s led to a significant resurgence in childhood deaths from preventable diseases, with 122 children succumbing to influenza in 2011 alone. And worldwide, UNICEF reports that one child dies nearly every 20 seconds from a disease that could have been prevented in the first place with a vaccine. So, vaccines are important. But when is the right time to bring in your ch
Surgical breast augmentation has provided millions of women with natural looking breasts, often restoring confidence to women who have had mastectomies because of breast cancer. Both silicone and saline implants, which have been approved by the FDA, help to either reconstruct breasts or augment them to increase breast size. While surgical breast augmentation might seem like the miracle cure to a mastectomy or sagging breasts, there are some risks that might deter patients from having breast implants put in.

In a world where appearance matters more than we might like it to, it is no surprise that more than 290,000 breast implant surgeries were performed in 2013. For varying reasons, such as ptosis (sagging breasts), mastectomy, and self-confidence issues, women continue to seek the help of cosmetic surgeons to enhance and restore more youthful looking breasts, either through breast lift procedures, or more popularly, breast implants.
Over the years, two particular type of breast implants have become the staple — silicone and saline. Breast augmentation doctors use silicone when patients want an implant that feels more like natural human breast tissue.

Are you concerned about the appearance of your skin? If so, you may want to consider the benefits of botox and other cosmetic procedures offered by dermatologists.
For example, have you noticed the adverse effects of wrinkles starting to show in your face? It may be that a botox procedure may help to alleviate the issue. Perhaps there are unsightly hairs growing on your face. Laser hair removal, as administered by an experienced professional, may be the option you’d like to pursue.

Nearly half of all working Americans suffer from back pain every year, and it’s not just due to heavy lifting. Office workers can face back problems at the same rate, mostly due to inactivity and slouching in office chairs for long periods of time.

In cases like that, you may become a candidate for spinal surgery — but make no mistake, that’s not a light diagnosis by any means. Modern surgeons today have two procedures they rely on to correct spinal issues and alleviate back pain: spinal fusion and artificial disc re
A new study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is showing that more women are turning to breast lift procedures, mastopexy, rather than investing in breast implants. The ASPS study also confirms that lifts have outpaced implants two to one, and that since 2000, breast lift surgery has grown by 70%.
There are still plenty of women that cite reasons to get breast augmentation, such as aging, and post-breast feeding sagging, and implants are still considered the most popular cosmetic surgery in America. But women are increasingly electing to have breast lifts over implants because mastopexy utilizes their existing natural tissue to aid the lift, ti
Half of Americans believe that medical conspiracies are true, NPR reports. Up to 20% believe that the government asks us to vaccinate children knowing it will cause autism, and another 20% think they’re likely to get cancer from their cellphones.
