Are you someone who suffers from spring time allergies? Regardless of the type of plant it is, what causes the allergies is pollen. Spring allergies can often start as early as February, or whenever cedar and ash trees release pollen – they happen to be the first trees that do so. If you’re wondering what to do for your pesky spring allergies, then read Dr. Nilesh Shah’s recommendations on how to survive the Northwest allergy season.

Have you looked in a mirror and wondered what you would look like with fuller breasts? What might your figure look like augmented by 1,2, or even 3 bra sizes?
I have introduced a major advance in helping you make better choices for breast augmentation. The new sizing system from Mentor now allows us to be far more accurate in helping you best visualize the change you would most desire.
One of the most difficult problems with aesthetic augmentation is trying to be certain that one achieves the desired look and figure. For years we have utilized a number of techniques including placing actual implants in a brassiere, baggies filled with water, and nylon socks filled with rice. This is helpful but limited in its overall accuracy.
Nationwide, the most significant reason for dissatisfaction from augmentation surgery is in fact size choice- both smaller and larger than anticipated. We feel that it is essential that we strive for the very best size choice before the procedure.
The new sizing system allows for a much better contouring of the sizr to the natural breast tissue, thus better simulating the actual outcome. Our patients can now better assess their figures and see how they appear in different dress choices. We are also able to change the size by as little as 25cc.
Of course I will also address virtually all other aesthetic breast issues such as lifting, reduction, treatment of old or poorly placed implants and hybrid type problems. This sizing system is now available at our Carillon Point office facility.

Would a chin implant restore a great profile and youthful appearance? According to national surveys, the answer is a resounding yes!
This procedure, simply performed, often with just local anesthesia and little recovery can be highly rewarding. A stronger chin helps with the profile and is also important in giving the face a youthful and more confident appearance.

Strange findings in a study done on mice. First feed mice a high fat diet then give them an abdominal lipectomy (surgically remove the fat on the belly) then expose them to UV for months.
These mice got 75% fewer skin cancers than mice who were fed a low fat diet and also got an abdominal lipectomy with the same UV exposure. I have no idea what to make of these findings, very curious- could it be possible that we should eat badly, get belly liposuction in order to reduce our risks of skin cancer?
