Purified Fat Could Be an Alternative to Breast Implants
There has been intense discussion lately about the risks associated with breast implants. France has gone so far as to ban the use of textured breast implants – an act that occurred earlier this month. Solana Beach, CA-based Puregraft has developed an option other than an implant - a technology that would use a patient’s own fat, for breast augmentation, or restructuring. “Fat transfer, believe it or not, is the most popular procedure that you’ve never heard of,” Brad Conlan, Puregraft CEO, told MD+DI. “The first fat...

Book Review: Eating Disorders: The Journey to Recovery Workbook, 2nd Ed.
There is no such thing as a life free of distress. And yet in the distress — by learning to move through it, find strengths that help us cope, and most importantly, not avoid it — we often find the path to growth. This path, from finding escape from the distress of life to finding growth in it, is also the journey that underlies the recovery from an eating disorder. “People with eating disorders, like all people, flourish when they feel a sense of agency,” write authors Laura J.

Getting Rid of Cellulite Is Tough. But Here ’s What Works Best
It was of course the French—the keenest observers and arbiters of aesthetics—who first studied, named and attempted to develop treatments for cellulite. The term “cellulite” initially appeared in a French medical dictionary back in the 1870s, and the condition was described as an inflammation of cellular tissue. Fast forward 150 years, and dermatologists today know better—though they still don’t know everything. For example, they know that cellulite is not a sign of inflammation or any other type of medical concern. It’s a completely harmless and purely cosmetic condition that affe...
