The holiday season is underway and a new year is quickly approaching. For most of us, the natural inclination is to want to start fresh as soon as the ball drops. Who hasn’t made a New Year’s resolution or two (or 100)? According to a variety of studies and surveys, the most popular resolution last year was to get healthy and not surprisingly, the majority of these health goals were related to fitness and diet, both habits that improve your appearance. While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to boost your health and wellbeing to look and feel your best, resolutions, in general, aren’t very effective and resolve fades fast. In fact, Gold’s Gym analyzed four years of check-in data and found February 18 was the day with the largest drop-off in gym attendance.
A large portion of Dr. Jung’s patients at Premiere Surgical Arts are moms. That’s probably not surprising, considering Houston Mommy Makeover procedures are one of his specialties. From the initial consultation through the final appointment, he gets the opportunity to develop relationships with his patients and learn more about their lives. It’s become abundantly clear just how rewarding but also challenging motherhood can be. That’s why it’s so important to have a support system that includes women who are in the same boat. We’re here to help with our guide on how to meet other Houston moms.
I’m heartbroken by the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and the catastrophic flooding and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected. I don’t just work as a Houston cosmetic surgeon, I’ve also set down roots here and call the area home, so I’ve seen the destruction firsthand. While the storm may be over, a staggering number of people have been displaced and have lost everything. It’s going to take months for Texas to recover from the damage and even longer for many people to rebuild their lives. The acts of heroism, Texans banding together to help one another and the response from around the country has been astounding and touching. Yet, there’s still so much more that needs to be done. If you’re wondering how to help after Harvey, I’ve compiled some ways you can get involved. This list is by no means exhaustive and a search of local or national organizations will turn up an endless array of opportunities but these might give you some ideas.
It’s no wonder that rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is an extremely popular procedure, considering our noses are one of our most prominent facial features. When you don’t like how it looks, it can make you feel extremely self-conscious and hiding it really isn’t an option. Sometimes people are born with a nose shape or size they’re not thrilled about and other times, aging or injury causes unwanted changes to its appearance. Nose jobs will produce lasting results that are as subtle or dramatic as you want. The procedure can bring your features into balance by changing the size, shape or position of your nose. Plus, by fixing structural issues, you’ll be able to breathe better and sleep more soundly. That’s not even to mention the huge confidence boost that comes with loving what you see in the mirror. We know the idea of surgery can be intimidating and some people don’t know where to start. To help, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 most common questions we receive from our Houston rhinoplasty patients to give you some important nose surgery facts.
Our Houston, Texas liposculpture patients almost always ask Dr. Jung what the difference between liposculpture and liposuction is at their initial consultation. There’s a lot of confusion surrounding the terms. The short explanation is that liposuction is part of the overall procedure of liposculpture. They may be essentially the same thing with varying levels of involvement, however, liposculpture is a more advanced and precise alternative to liposuction for men and women.
