When a tan became the sign of health and vitality in the 1920’s, we did not know much about the dangers of UV radiation, just as we knew nothing about the dangers of smoking. Now we know more, but much of the society still believes that a tan is the ultimate sign of good health, while in reality tan is simply a response to injury whether it is obtained indoors or outdoors.
Anyone who has ever tanned indoors is much more likely to develop melanoma, and for those who do it frequently, the risk of skin cancer is much higher. Melanoma cells, unlike other skin cancer types, can invade deep into tissues and spread to other parts of the body and this is the second most common cancer among people ages 15-29, and on the rise overall. High-speed and high-pressure machines are even more dangerous as they use higher amounts of UVB and UVA light. Teens are at a special risk because their bodies are undergoing accelerated growth rate and are more prone to the damage of the UV radiation. They need to know there is no such thing as a safe tan from a tanning bed.
You cannot avoid spending time outside, so make sure your skin gets the protection it needs. Avoid prolonged exposure between 10 A.M. and 3 P.M. or wear protective clothing: wide-brim hats, long pants, shirts with sleeves. Apply sunscreen that protects from both UVA and UVB rays and don’t forget your scalp- mineral powder sunscreen is not messy and will do the job.
In addition to the risk of skin cancer, exposure to UV rays causes your skin to age prematurely. Over time the skin will become thick, wrinkled, and leathery. Since it occurs gradually, often manifesting itself many years after the majority of a person’s sun exposure, premature aging is often regarded as an unavoidable, normal part of growing older. However, many visible skin changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by UV rays and with proper protection can be avoided.
Dr. Khattab is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with years of experience in skin cancer treatments.

We’ll be able to give you more information and schedule you for a consultation or recommend skin care products for you and your family.

An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic procedure performed to achieve a slimmer youthful contour and the flatter abdomen we all desire. There are different types of this procedure and the one that is right for you depends on your personal circumstances.
Take a look at this video from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery which demonstrates real patients’ results after the tummy tuck and can help you determine what you might be able to achieve with this procedure. Tummy tuck is often the best procedure for removal of stretch marks, scarring and excess skin from weight fluctuation or child birth.
