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.

Australian court rules detention of Sri Lankan asylum seekers on high seas la...
27 Jan 2015 at 7:55pm
Australia's highest court ruled on Wednesday that the government's detention of Tamil asylum seekers on the high seas outside its territorial waters was lawful, a win for the government's controversial immigration policies. The High Court ruling means the group of 157 refugees, including 50 children, are not entitled to seek compensation after they were held on an Australian customs ship for almost a month last June. The decision comes after the government introduced revisions to its immigration laws in December that give it almost unchecked powers to deal with asylum seekers, a move that has concerned human rights advocates.

Georgia executes convict despite claims he was mentally disabled
27 Jan 2015 at 6:11pm
Warren Lee Hill, 54, was pronounced dead by lethal injection at 7:55 p.m. (0055 GMT Wednesday), after the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request to put his execution on hold, Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens said in a statement. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles refused on Tuesday to stop the execution, as did the state Supreme Court last week. Hill was condemned for beating fellow inmate Joseph Handspike to death in August 1990. Hill's supporters included former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, the American Bar Association, the American Civil Liberties Union, the European Union and the Georgia chapter of the NAACP, according to his attorneys.

27 Jan 2015 at 4:30pm
(Reuters) - Medical device maker Abiomed Inc raised its full-year revenue forecast and said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had approved its heart pump, sending its stock up about 30 percent in extended trading.

Vouchers and cyber-friends: new keys to good health?
27 Jan 2015 at 4:21pm

Shopping vouchers and online social networks may be powerful, modern tools to help people quit smoking and lose weight, two unusual experiments suggested Wednesday. In the Scottish study, published in The BMJ, researchers offered 612 pregnant smokers in Glasgow free nicotine replacement therapy and professional quitting aid. Half the volunteers were also promised 400 pounds (534 euros or $607) in shopping vouchers. A first voucher of 50 pounds was earned for showing up for a meeting with a professional and setting a quit date, another 50 pounds for not smoking for four weeks, another 100 pounds for 12 weeks and 200 pounds at 34-38 weeks.



Probe links sugary drinks with earlier menstruation
27 Jan 2015 at 4:17pm

Girls who consume lots of sugary drinks start menstruating at a younger age, a study said Wednesday. The findings are important because early onset of menstruation is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer in later life, the paper said, although other experts saw flaws in the probe. Writing in the journal Human Reproduction, researchers said they had monitored the health of more than 5,500 American girls between 1996 and 2001. During the five-year study, those who drank between one-and-a-half servings of sweetened drinks per day had their first period 2.7 months earlier than those who had two or fewer sweet drinks a week, the investigators found.

University of California on-campus doctors stage rare strike
27 Jan 2015 at 3:51pm
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Doctors for student health centers at 10 University of California campuses staged a rare one-day strike on Tuesday, upset that administrators have failed to give their union information the physicians said they needed to negotiate their first contract. The Union of American Physicians and Dentists, their collective bargaining organization, said it marked the first time in 25 years that licensed medical doctors had gone on strike in the United States. Physicians for the student health centers formed a union in November 2013 and have been in talks since then aimed at reaching their first contract. Dr. Charles McDaniel, a psychiatrist at the UCLA center and a spokesman for the group, said the UC administration has dragged its feet in furnishing basic information needed for the talks such as details on discretionary budgets of the university chancellors and a breakdown of how student fees are spent.

World Bank: world 'dangerously unprepared' for pandemics
27 Jan 2015 at 3:21pm

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim warned Tuesday that the world remains "dangerously unprepared" for deadly pandemics like the Ebola outbreak that has killed thousands in West Africa. "The Ebola outbreak has been devastating in terms of lives lost and the loss of economic growth in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone," Kim said in a speech at Georgetown University in Washington. "We need to make sure that we get to zero cases in this Ebola outbreak. "At the same time, we need to prepare for future pandemics that could become far more deadly and infectious than what we have seen so far with Ebola," he said, according to excerpts from his speech.


A Sense of Belonging

Exploring new cities, towns, countries, sightseeing, observing how other people live and simply getting out of the daily routine to view what else the world has to offer.

Trouble falling asleep may signal high blood pressure
27 Jan 2015 at 2:52pm
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) ? Trouble sleeping, especially trouble falling asleep, may be associated with high blood pressure, according to a new study from China. This is the first study to show that certain people with insomnia are at risk for high blood pressure, said coauthors Dr. Xiangdong Tang of Sichuan University in China and Dr. Alexandros N. Vgontzas of Penn State University College of Medicine, in a statement to Reuters Health. Insomnia with increased alertness during the day, or hyperarousal, is associated with increased chronic secretion of stress hormones like cortisol, which may lead to hypertension, they wrote. The authors studied about 300 adults, including more than 200 chronic insomniacs who?d had trouble sleeping for at least six months.

Start worrying about cholesterol in your 30s, study suggests
27 Jan 2015 at 2:50pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) ? People with even moderately high cholesterol levels in their 30s and 40s are more likely to have heart disease later in life, according to a new study. ?What we found is that people with prolonged exposure to high cholesterol levels are at a much higher risk of cardiovascular events than people without that exposure,? said Michael Pencina, the study?s senior author from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. ?Many of these people would not be candidates for treatment using the new guidelines,? he said. ?They may fall through the cracks.? In 2013, the AHA and ACC issued new guidelines that said exercise and a healthy diet are the most important steps for preventing high cholesterol.

School-wide prevention program lowers teen suicide risk
27 Jan 2015 at 2:49pm
(This version of the Jan. 23rd story corrects name of the University of South Florida in paragraph 16) By Madeline Kennedy (Reuters Health) ? After a school-based prevention program, European teenagers were about half as likely to attempt suicide or to feel suicidal, a new study shows. Danuta Wasserman, a professor of psychiatry at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, said the program was likely successful because students ?felt that the power of mastering their feelings, coping with stress and choosing solutions was in their hands and not decided or forced by adults.? Suicide is the third leading cause of death between the ages of 10 and 24, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Suicide attempts are even more common, with some research suggesting that 4 to 8 percent of high school students try to kill themselves each year, the CDC says.


19 Eggs and Counting: My First IVF Treatment
27 Jan 2015 at 2:43pm

Making the decision to pump my body full of hormones in order to facilitate mass egg production in order to have a baby was not really in my five-year-plan, but it certainly took center stage a few weeks ago. My wife dutifully primed the needle both morning and night at (almost) exactly the same time 12 hours apart, and then inserted the needle...
