Orlando Plastic Surgery Center Launches Orlando Weight Loss Program

(EMAILWIRE.COM, January 26, 2012 ) Orlando, FL -- Shockingly, a total of 68.3% of the U.S. adult population over the age of 20 has significant issues with weight! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 33.9% of all U.S. adults over the age of 20 are obese, while 34.4% are overweight!

Also, in 2010, usage of fat tissue fillers rose 14% compared to 2009 (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).

Recognizing these startling facts, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center has launched its new Orlando Weight Loss Program.

But, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center does not advocate for individuals to lose as much weight as possible just to look good. Rather, it encourages individuals to lose weight at a healthy pace.

The Orlando Weight Loss Program helps individuals by creating a weight loss plan customized specifically to their unique needs, medically supervises the entire process, and helps individuals look and feel their best from the inside out. And best of all, this is done in a healthy and medically safe way.

“They trust our expertise and opinions, and we take that very seriously as cosmetic and plastic surgery professionals,” said lead surgeon and owner Dr. George Pope.

Orlando Plastic Surgery Center continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping people look and feel their best. It has already helped many patients improve their satisfaction with their lives. Adding a monitored and medically safe weight loss program to its repertoire of services is just one more way it is looking to help the general public.

25 Aug 2016 at 2:30am

By Steve Scherer and Gabriele Pileri AMATRICE, Italy (Reuters) - The death toll from a devastating earthquake in central Italy rose to at least 247 people early on Thursday after rescue teams worked through the night to try to find survivors under the rubble of flattened towns. The provisional death toll has jumped to 247, from the 159 listed on Wednesday night, the Civil Protection department said.

Being overweight linked to eight more kinds of cancer
25 Aug 2016 at 12:50am

Being overweight can raise the likelihood of being diagnosed with cancers of the stomach and digestive tract, as well as certain brain and reproductive tumors, international researchers said Wednesday. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine adds eight more kinds of cancer to the list of those already known to be more likely among overweight people. In 2002, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Cancer on Research (IARC), based in France, said excess pounds could raise the risk of colon, esophagus, kidney, breast and uterine cancer.



Without aid, 49,000 children will die this year in northeast Nigeria - UN
25 Aug 2016 at 12:40am

Nearly half a million children around Lake Chad face "severe acute malnutrition" due to drought and a seven-year insurgency by Islamist militant group Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria, UNICEF said on Thursday. Of the 475,000 deemed at risk, 49,000 in Nigeria's Borno state, Boko Haram's heartland, will die this year if they do not receive treatment, according to the United Nations' child agency, which is appealing for $308 million to cope with the crisis. At the start of 2015, Boko Haram occupied an area the size of Belgium but has since been pushed back over the last 18 months by military assaults by the four countries.

25 Aug 2016 at 12:13am

Veteran South African anti-apartheid campaigner Desmond Tutu checked into a Cape Town hospital for a recurring infection, his daughter said on Wednesday, a bug that put the former cleric hospital for a week last year. "He is expected to remain in hospital for a week or two.The Archbishop underwent similar treatment last year," Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe said in a statement. It is unclear what infection Tutu, 84, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, is suffering from but his family has said it is not related to the prostate cancer he has been living with for nearly 20 years.

24 Aug 2016 at 10:32pm

Novartis AG said a late-stage study showed its oral, once-daily BAF312, or siponimod, reduced the risk of disability progression in a severe form of multiple sclerosis. The Phase III EXPAND study, the largest randomized, controlled study in secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) to date, met its primary endpoint, compared with placebo, the Swiss drugmaker said in a statement on Thursday. "SPMS is a particularly disabling form of MS, and there is a need for effective treatment options to help delay disability progression in those living with the condition," Vasant Narasimhan, global head of drug development and chief medical Officer for Novartis, said in the statement.



Florida governor complains U.S. not doing enough to fight Zika
24 Aug 2016 at 7:44pm

CHICAGO/MIAMI (Reuters) - Florida Governor Rick Scott said on Wednesday the federal government had so far not delivered all the Zika antibody tests and laboratory support he had requested as the state battles the spread of the virus. On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Health reported a second non-travel related case of Zika in Palm Beach County, bringing the state's total to 43. Health officials warned pregnant women last week not to travel to Miami Beach after Florida confirmed the mosquito-borne Zika virus was active there, becoming the second area in Miami to be affected after Wynwood.

Clinton calls for lower price on allergy drug EpiPen
24 Aug 2016 at 4:40pm

By Ginger Gibson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called on pharmaceutical company Mylan NV to voluntarily drop the price of its severe allergy treatment drug EpiPen, which has increased in price by more than 400 percent in the past decade. "That's outrageous - and it's just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers," Clinton said in a statement. "It's wrong when drug companies put profits ahead of patients, raising prices without justifying the value behind them." Clinton frequently said during the primary that she would fight pharmaceutical companies - part of an attempt to counter criticism that she was too closely tied to the insurance industry.

24 Aug 2016 at 4:26pm

Costa Rica has registered its first case of a baby born with microcephaly linked to the mosquito-borne Zika virus, the country's health ministry said on Wednesday. The health ministry described the case as "imported" in a statement, as the mother of the child is Nicaraguan and was thought to have contracted the virus in the neighboring Central American country. The Zika virus was first detected in Brazil last year and has since spread across the Americas.



Post Arab Spring, lifespan drops across region: study
24 Aug 2016 at 4:06pm

The conflict and civil strife that has erupted across the eastern Mediterranean region since the Arab Spring began in 2010 has shortened lifespans and damaged health, according to a study released Thursday. Yemen, Tunisia and Egypt all lost about three months in life expectancy between 2010 and 2013, with deteriorating conditions threatening health gains made over the previous two decades, researchers said. In Syria -- ravaged by a civil war that has left more than 290,000 people dead and displaced millions since March 2011 -- average life expectancy has been cut by six years, they reported in the journal The Lancet Global Health.
