Weight Loss Surgery and Cardiovascular Disease, New Wrinkle Improver, Jeuveau (as well as our old friend, Botox)
Jeuveau/Newtox is the latest in injectable treatments. It works in a similar fashion as Botox but with a “surprising onset and promising duration”. For a limited time we will be offering this at $10/unit or $150 for our typical syringe of 15 units.
Mused after staff and I went to the final “Cheers to Art” session before they closed in Madiera. Talented staff painted scarecrows. Cheers to Art will continue to do private parties.
Weight Loss Surgery and Cardiovascular Disease
A recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that patients who have undergone weight loss surgery have a significantly lower risk of heart attacks, strokes and other forms of cardiovascular disease. The Cleveland Clinic analyzed over 13,000 obese patients and found that 39% were less likely to experience one of above events. This surgery has also been found to lower or eliminate patients’ diabetes.
(Did You Know? The authors caution that this is an association but not that the surgery caused the effects.)
Bariatric surgery is generally recommended for patients who are 100 pounds or more over their ideal body weight, have a body-mass index of 40, or a BMI of 35 along with diabetes, high blood pressure or other related conditions. AND haven’t been able to lose weight by other means. There were an estimated 228,000 bariatric surgeries performed in 2017.
