Resting is not a luxury it is a necessity. According to recent NBC Today news story last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention proclaimed lack of sleep as a public health epidemic. And an American Psychological Association survey showed a significant gap between the level of stress people stated that they experience and what they believed was a healthy level. But another survey discovered that when women are tired, 80 percent are at minimum somewhat likely to push right on through. We live in a culture in which people accept lagging energy as a fact of life, confirms integrative medicine specialist Frank Lipman, M.D., author of Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Start Living Again.It’s a mindset that starts early. We’re now primed to be fatigued from the get-go, says anesthesiologist Bradley Carpentier, M.D., who has studied causes of exhaustion. We not only feel the effects of exhaustion they also show in our appearance. For women, reenergizing can be a critical strategy for maintaining both mental and physical health. Many patients seek consultation with Dr. Kim because they have decided to re-energize their overall appearance. For some patients, that means pursuing a more proportionate figure with breast augmentation, liposuction, or abdominoplasty. For other patients this could mean addressing areas of the face that have begun to show the signs of aging. Dr. Kim may recommend noninvasive cosmetic procedures like Botox or surgical procedures including facelift, brow lift, and blepharoplasty. Reducing stress and caring for our health including our appearance is one of the best ways to ensure a fulfilling and satisfied life.
