Figuring out the cost of Botox is not easy. Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. The ideal candidate for Botox is starting to see finer lines and wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. The three most common areas that are injected are the crow's feet, forehead, and in between the brows. In my practice, I charge for Botox Cosmetic by the area I typically use approximately 33 units for those [...]
Longer eyelashes prevent eyes from drying out
Researchers at Georgia Tech have studied the ideal length of eyelashes, to prevent eyes from drying out and keeping dust and dirt from blowing in. Their studies showed that the most effective length is one-third the width of the eye. This improves the airflow around the eye, and keeps the eye both moist and clean.
If short eyelashes are bothering you, we have Latisse® at our office. This is a prescription medication, which you apply to your upper eyelid, once a night. It makes eyelashes longer, thicker and darker. It takes 3 to 4 months to see the effects, but the application is easy and only uses one drop
Lucky is not how Julie Delaney would describe herself.
If the word slips out, she'll knock on wood --- nobody that has had cancer is lucky, she says.
"I feel fortunate," she corrects herself.
Delaney, 45, of Webster is now cancer-free after being diagnosed with the disease last year. And thanks to an Aberdeen plastic surgeon who performs breast reconstructions, she has emerged from the ordeal with a new breast.

The sore on Sheron Chapman’s nose just wouldn’t go away. “I had it for more than a year,” the 63-year-old Huron woman says. “It would bleed occasionally, but then it would start to heal and I thought it was going away for good.”
Hardly noticeable at about the size of a pencil eraser, Chapman dismissed the idea that the sore was anything to worry about. “I thought it was just a broken blood vessel,” she says. “It didn’t hurt.”
It's not true that only wealthy socialites have cosmetic surgery.
In fact, the clientele of Aberdeen’s lone plastic surgeon includes a number of farm wives.
Dr. Sanjay Mukerji said plastic and cosmetic surgery patients are often not people who are super wealthy. They are just people who “desire a change and wish to feel better about themselves, and that can be anyone.”
He works on people who are upper, middle class and lower-middle class, he said.
