Good Advice

Breast Surgery Combined with Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction by Charlotte Rhee, MD, F.A.C.S., P.C. Many of my patients come to me seeking help with the changes that can occur after childbirth. Following childbirth, a woman’s breast can grow to uncomfortable proportions or just the opposite can happen. A woman’s breast can actually lose volume and shrink, resulting in the breast appearing “deflated.” Additionally, a large number of women come to me seeking help with the post partum changes of their abdomen. During pregnancy the skin and abdominal wall muscles are stretched. Following childbirth, the abdomen can protrude and the skin can be loose or sag. In some cases, the abdominal muscles can be so weakened that the individual may look like she is still pregnant. Despite daily workouts including sit ups and crunches, a tummy tuck may be needed to restore these muscles.

ing breast reduction. Both groups of women want to have breasts that are proportional to their body size with the most natural result possible. In certain situations, a breast lift is also needed to tighten lax skin. The laxity can be the result of pregnancy or weight loss. When a breast lift is needed, I utilize the lollipop scar technique. A breast lift procedure is very similar to a breast reduction. The only difference is that with a breast reduction, breast tissue is removed.

Combined Breast/Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Procedures. Many of my patients who have breast surgery also have other procedures performed at the same time. This allows for one surgery and one recovery. The most common combined procedures performed by Dr. Rhee are breast surgery, whether it is a breast reduction or augmentation, combined with tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. For those patients Breast Reduction Many of my patients who desire breast augmentation together with a tummy tuck, I am able to place Women with very large pendulous breasts may experience varied medical the breast implants through the tummy tuck incision, leaving the breasts without who have breast problems including back and neck pain.

What better way to get a jump on autumn than on a daylong escorted North Fork country farm tour—by train? Board at select Long Island Rail Road stations between Penn Station and Babylon in the morning, arrive at Wickham’s Fruit Farm in Cutchogue, and hop on a tractor to ride through the orchards, pick fruit in season, and purchase farm-fresh pies or cider donuts. N ​ ext stop: Tasting time at Riverhead Ciderhouse, to sample naturally harvested apple ciders, local beer and wine, and other appleinfused treats. End the day taking in Port Jefferson Village’s harbor views and visiting quaint shops and restaurants. Tickets cost $67.75 (adults) and $41.25 (children) and include escort voucher, round-trip rail and bus transport, tractor ride, fruit picking, and beer or cider tastings.

Challenging Pain The pain has been described as a burning or pins-andneedles sensation, as if someone were squeezing the affected limb, and it can spread to the entire arm or leg even though the injury involved only a finger or toe. The discomfort is prolonged and constant, occurring more often in women, but it can strike anyone following an injury or trauma. The debilitating symptoms of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) include drastic temperature fluctuations and skin alterations. Affecting nearly 200,000 people across the country, it has no cure and its cause is not well understood by doctors or researchers. The Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA), the national not-for-profit that supports individuals with CRPS, aims to bring attention to CRPS while uniting individuals with the condition. Three Long Island moms — event co-chairs Stacy Udell, Beth Seickel, and Debbie ONeal—launched the annual fundraiser, now in its fourth year. The Annual RSDSA Long Island Awareness Walk & Expo is set for Saturday, September 7. The fundraiser will include chil6 • Long Island Woman • august 2019

The average expenses of smoking are approximately $3,391 per smoker per year, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — but for women, tobacco addiction carries other types of costs. Female smokers are prone to early menopause, and those who smoke heavily have a higher likelihood of having abnormal vaginal bleeding than nonsmokers, according to the National Cancer Institute. The Suffolk County Department of Health Services’ Smoking Cessation program for medically eligible residents aims to break the addiction, at no cost. Classes are supervised by a nurse practitioner and provide behavior modification and supportive pharmaceuticals.

Equality Pick

Media Message Describe the work you do and how you became involved in this work. For over 20 years, I was the president and producer of Videowave Productions, a New York City video/film production company; I commuted from Syosset. Clients were mostly fashion and cosmetic companies hoping to train employees or market to stores and consumers. I wrote scripts, produced, and co-edited. What’s the best life advice you’ve been given? Be true to myself when taking on challenging projects. Also, work really hard at something I loved so the results would make me proud. What’s the biggest challenge facing women? Though the #MeToo movement has made a difference in how women are treated in the workplace, there’s a long way to go. Women must work harder to prove their capabilities, often without the kudos a man gets for the same achievement. What was your most important break? Beginning graduate school at age 60, specifically at Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA program. At year’s end I was awarded the Deborah Hecht Memorial Prize in Fiction. This opened many doors for publishing. What’s the best business advice you’ve been given? Remember that people I dealt with for jobs I completed were not family, and they were paying for a service I provided which had nothing to do with love. It sounded strange, but because I am a crowd-pleaser by nature, it was good to remember. What advice would you give to other women? Don’t be afraid to change what they are doing to follow their dream. I walked through many doors before I sat down at my desk and wrote my first novel.

Although Britain is older than the United States, its attitudes are newer. It recently banned ads depicting harmful gender stereotypes in commercials, social media campaigns, or online advertising, reports The Washington Post. Examples: ads showing a man who doesn’t know how to change his baby’s diaper, a chore stereotyped as “female.” Guy Parker, chief executive of the Advertising Standards Authority, said gender stereotypes “can contribute to inequality in society, with costs for all of us.”

Woman’s Health Update Are Sleeping Pills Safe? Here’s What Research Says According to the latest numbers, roughly 9 million Americans—4% of U.S. adults—use prescription sleep aids or medications that can help with insomnia and other sleep issues. And now, some of the most popular prescription sleep drugs must carry stronger safety warnings. In April, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandated black-box warnings—which the agency uses to “call attention to serious or life-threatening risks”—on three sedative-hypnotic sleep aids: eszopiclone (often sold under the brand name Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata) and zolpidem (Ambien). Hypnotic drugs, which are used to prompt or maintain sleep, have been connected to 20 reported deaths and 46 non-fatal but serious injuries, according to the FDA. Injuries included accidental overdoses, falls and neardrownings, deaths by carbon monoxide poisoning, hypothermia, car accidents, apparent suicide and more. The side effects of sleeping pills vary by medication, but they can include dizziness, headache, gastrointestinal issues, prolonged drowsiness, allergic reactions, memory problems and performing daily activities while partially asleep. Patients taking sleep aids should learn the possible side effects and medication interactions before starting a new drug, in order to prevent serious injury to themselves and others. Patients should also, follow their doctor’s instructions when taking sleep aids. The Mayo Clinic also recommends not mixing alcohol with sleep drugs and only taking them just before a full night of sleep to reduce the risk of side effects and Patients taking dangerous behavior.

sleep aids should learn the possible side effects and medication interactions before starting a new drug, in order to prevent serious injury to themselves and others.

Vitamin D Could Lower the Risk of Diabetes The benefits of vitamin D in promoting bone health are already well known. A new study out of Brazil suggests that vitamin D also may promote greater insulin sensitivity, thus lowering glucose levels and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The results are published in the January issue of Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS). Other recent studies have shown a clear relationship between vitamin D and glycemic control, suggesting that vitamin D increases insulin sensitivity and improves pancreatic beta-cell function. In this cross-sectional study involving 680 Brazilian women aged 35 to 74 years, the goal was to evaluate the possible association between vitamin D deficiency and increased glycemia. Of the women interviewed, 24 (3.5%) reported using vitamin D supplements.

Vitamin D supplementation was found to be negatively associated with high glucose levels. Habitual exposure to the sun also provided the same association, demonstrating that vitamin D deficiencies are associated with high blood glucose levels. Study results show higher serum levels of vitamin D are associated with lower blood glucose levels. Although a causal relationship has not been proven, low levels of vitamin D may play a significant role in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Vitamin D supplementation may help improve blood sugar control, but intervention studies are still needed.

The Four Types of Doctors Visits You Should Make for a Long, Healthy Life Prevention is often called the best medicine but research has shown that millions of Americans are not getting the preventive care they should to live long, healthy lives. Obstacles like inadequate access to care and financial barriers can keep people away from the doctor. While a person’s exact medical needs vary depending on their age, sex, lifestyle behaviors and family health history, there are four main kinds of preventive medicine that could help every American live their best, longest life: •Screenings: Screenings are an important but complicated area of preventive care. Most adults should be screened regularly for high blood pressure, depression, sexually transmitted infections, skin cancer and substance misuse. Most other screenings are specialized depending on age, sex and individual risk factors. •Immunizations: Getting the appropriate vaccines is an effective and easy way to avoid contracting and spreading diseases. •Counseling: Any person with mental health concerns, or diagnosed conditions such as depression and anxiety, should see a professional. •Preventive medications guidance: Depending on your specific health profile, your doctor may recommend certain medications to help prevent chronic diseases. l To advertise: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise

arah McLachlan Peaceful and Clear S

arah McLachlan is one of the most celebrated singer-songwriters in entertainment with more than 40 million albums sold worldwide. Her raw and emotional brand of piano-based folk-pop ignited a movement for female-driven music in the 1990s and garnered the Nova Scotia-born artist three Grammy Awards and 12 Juno Awards (presented annually to Canadian musicians) over her long and influential career. McLachlan, who was recently inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, hasn’t released new music since 2016’s Wonderland, her ninth studio album and second Christmas album, but is having a busy 2019. In March, she served as host of the Juno Awards ceremony, and in April she finished a mini-residency at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. She also sang “O Canada” prior to Game 6 of the NBA Finals in June. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 20 years since McLachlan’s seminal and multiplatinum album Surfacing dominated radio, reaching the top position on the Canadian RPM 100 Albums chart and number two on the U.S. Billboard 200. And that it’s been just as long since she co-founded the groundbreaking Lilith Fair concert tour, a traveling music festival consisting solely of female solo artists and female-led bands. Perhaps that’s because her songs of relationships and pain and regret and yearning—sung in her thoughtful, honest, and articulate voice, sometimes a whisper, other times a tormented cry—are every bit as meaningful today. The song titles roll off the tongue: “Building a Mystery,” “Sweet Surrender,” “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy,” “Possession,” “Adia,” “I Will Remember You”… For many of her fans, McLachlan’s music and videos, then in heavy rotation on MTV and VH1, became both a soundtrack and a lifeline, connecting them and their stories in a time before social media. McLachlan not only had become pop music’s liberator for female musicians, but also for female music fans in need of a voice to represent them. Over the years, McLachlan’s musical activism has also been linked to other charitable pursuits—Lilith Fair, which was revived somewhat unsuccessfully in 2010, raised over $7 million for local and national charities. Her support of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), marked by those heartbreaking television spots featuring her song, “Angel” (which have become fodder for various memes and spoofs), reportedly raised $30 million in the first two years of its release. And, in 2002, she founded a nonprofit organization, the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides top quality music instruction at no cost, in a safe and nurturing environment, for at-risk and underserved children and youth in three cities in Canada. McLachlan, now 51, and a mother of two daughters (her 11-year marriage to drummer, Ashwin Sood, ended in 2008), continues to write and make music and follow her passions. This summer, she will be touring the U.S. and Canada with a selection of orchestras, joining the New York Pops on stage in Forest Hills, Queens, on Aug. 2. She took the time to speak with LONG ISLAND WOMAN about her life and career.

Lilith Fair obviously was groundbreaking, and you’ve said in the past that it happened at a point in time when it was really needed. When it was brought back briefly in 2010 and didn’t meet expectations, you said that it was kind of done, that women had changed, and their expectations had changed. In what ways would you say that women have changed? We were trying to do the same thing that we did however many years before without recognizing the fact that most of the women who had come to Lilith in their twenties were now working mothers with two to three kids and mortgages and weren’t so apt to want to stand out in a hot field all day for $150 and deal with childcare on top of it. And it was sort of a perfect storm. We came into the market in a summer where concert tours, in general, were just doing terribly. It was very sad for me because I felt like the integrity of it got a little lost, and the real reason and the desire to have it be out in the world was to create change and create awareness and a community. It still did that, but it did it on a much smaller scale. I think there was just a pall around it—sort of a negative spin because people said, ‘Oh, it wasn’t successful, and it didn’t do very well,’ and it didn’t. It was a disaster, which is sad for me because I care very, very much about it. I was very frustrated by the fact that we, as an organization, hadn’t done our due diligence. There are lots of reasons that I think it didn’t do as well as it did, but I don’t think that women have advanced enough to think that there’s no need for it. There’s always a need for celebrating people, celebrating women, in particular, and coming together as a group and being inclusive and welcoming. Music is such a great catalyst for creating change, for creating community, and that, to me, was one of the greatest successes of Lilith. Have things changed for women in music? You created Lilith Fair, in part, because concert promoters and radio stations were refusing to feature two female musicians in a row. Yeah, absolutely. I think it definitely shifted some of those old-school attitudes, and I think it’s great to see so many women doing so well in music now. I think perhaps the music industry is one of the only industries where you see a little more of an equal footing of women having a good amount of power. There’s still a long, long way to go… It’s a slow process to change hundreds of thousands of years of patriarchy in a very short period of time, but I feel like we’re continuing to make progress, and I think the music industry really has made a lot of progress and the film industry’s made a lot of progress. Certainly, they have the ability to make a lot of noise because there’s the celebrity element to it, so it gains more traction in the media. Ultimately, it’s all about moving forward, bringing people’s stories forward, and slowly changing attitudes and educating—educating young boys—about what’s acceptable, what’s not acceptable. It’s a slow shift, but it is happening.


TH E L O NG IS LAN D WOMAN INT ER VIEW Would you say that being a musician at age 51 is much different from being a musician at age 21? Oh, God, yes. I couldn’t give a shit what people think anymore, which is incredibly freeing. I used to edit myself way more based on concerns that it might offend or that it wasn’t clear enough…I really, really was eager to please back then. I suppose I still am a little bit, but I just find there’s a general feeling of liberation and freedom the older one gets, to just not caring about the small stuff because it isn’t important. Does that freedom allow you to put less pressure on yourself? I put way less pressure on myself. That’s what I mean by liberated, you know? It’s like, ‘Oh, I haven’t put out a record in six years. Eh, it’s all right, I’ll get there.’ Whereas, in my 20s, there was always the pressure to prove myself. I wanted to be taken seriously. I cared a lot about that, partially because some music industry people kind of pat you on your head and go, ‘Oh, yeah, well, you’re a pretty girl and you write pretty songs, and you know, you let us take care of everything else.’ Please don’t patronize me. But I felt it, and I knew I needed to work really hard to be taken seriously. As the years went on I stopped caring about that, which was, again, very liberating. Why do you think you stopped caring? Was it because you had the body of work behind you? Or were you just sort of older and wiser in a sense? Maybe a bit of both. I sort of was able to look back on what I’d done, what I’d achieved, and it helps shape one’s values. It’s like, ‘I’ve done some good things, I’ve been part of some really cool things, I do have a voice.’ But it’s taken me a long time to get to that place where I feel like I can stand up and say exactly what I need. I could do that in my music all the time, but in my personal life and my business life I tend not to always speak my mind unless I’m really pushed to do so. I feel like I’m in the place now where I’m not the least bit afraid to say exactly how I feel anymore. I would think, as a writer of music and lyrics, that aging and experiencing the different stages of life just makes songwriting that much more interesting. Oh, it’s so, so rich, for sure. In a way, it’s challenging because the things I want to write about these days are way more spiritual based, and that’s tough stuff to write about without sounding, you know, super woo-woo… But I reflect a lot more now than I used to on the past, and what’s brought me here, and I think that is really great fodder for writing. It’s just that I’m not quite sure how to put it down, so that’s kind of been my struggle with finishing this next record, which is why I’m still writing. I’m just trying to figure out what the story is I want to tell about where I am now and how I got here. But it’s fun! It’s all amazing stuff. The other thing is, I’m really bloody happy, and it’s kind of hard to write when you’re really happy. I just feel so peaceful and clear, and everything’s easy right now. And if I start picking it apart or waiting for the shoe to drop...., I really don’t want to do that. I’m just going to live in this moment of bliss and enjoy it. What makes you happy right now? Today? Well, the sun is shining, my kids are healthy and happy. They’re so much fun right now. I have a music school that I’ve been running for 17 years–a free music school in Vancouver–and we’ve got two more schools, and I’m super heavily involved in tha. We’re helping change the lives of a lot of kids through music in the same way that I feel like it helped me. I just have a lot of things in my life that bring me joy. I’ve just really been able to embrace them all and recognize how incredibly lucky I am and how grateful I am, which just feels really good. So many times, when cost-cutting measures are necessary, the music programs are the first to go in schools, as opposed to, say, sports programs. People don’t value it in the way they should. I don’t think the importance of it is recognized enough. A big part of what we’re trying to do is advocacy and education on how all these studies have come out talking about how with at least two years of music education you’ve got kids four times likely to graduate high school. They do twice as good on their SATs. There are all these studies proving how valuable music is outside of a music education. Music helps kids in their math skills, their social skills, their social-emotional worlds. It creates a sense of community, which I would attest that we so desperately need, 16 • Long IsLand Woman • AuGuST 2019

“This is what 50 years of being on this planet looks like. I love myself, I love my body, I love my face and all its imperfections—it’s got me to where I am today.” especially these days. Teenagers live on their phones and in a virtual world, but we’re tribes, we’re pack animals. We need to be together with a common purpose. Being in a music program, being in a class with a bunch of other kids making music together, creates a really important, valuable sense of community, where everybody is seen, heard, valued, respected, and are allowed to be exactly who they are. We are in a society where we are constantly bombarded with images of who we should look up to and who we should aspire to be as a person. We need to be okay with who we are, our imperfect selves. I think music is kind of like a common denominator that brings us all to an equal footing, and, ultimately, I think we all need that desperately. To create something like that for kids, especially teenagers, who often come labeled, whether it’s from their parents, their teachers, their peers—rife with insecurities, as teens all are. Any opportunity to build kids up and let them see that they’re perfectly great just the way they are is so powerful. So I can’t talk enough about the value and importance of music education. It helps create good human beings. Speaking of imperfect selves…I recently read actress Justine Bateman’s “Fame “where she talks about aging and how she looks in the mirror now, at age 53, and finally feels like her face looks like it’s supposed to look. I just thought that was really refreshing. Our society is so geared toward this unrealistic version of the perfect woman.

worth around their image. Kind of impossible not to. It is hard getting older, but I certainly agree with Justine’s sentiment about looking in the mirror and going, ‘This is who I am.’ The other thing that I think now, every day, is: ‘This is as good as I’m ever going to look.‘ Because we’re getting older.

She’s just so full of joy and gratitude for being on the planet and finds the good in everything, and that’s beautiful. That’s beauty. It’s the shift in values, right?

Favorite TV Show I’m going to be so pedestrian: Game of Thrones. Favorite Book I just finished Educated by Tara Westover. I don’t know if it’s my favorite book, but it was amazing. It’s about a girl who grew up in a doomsday-ish family that lived off grid, and this is her struggle of how to escape the trappings of this crazy family and educate herself, and it’s so good. The other thing I’ve just started reading is The Coddling of the American Mind. I’m trying to smarten myself up a little bit. It’s a book about the cultural

shift in American universities, which may as well be in Canadian universities too, and talks about: what is safety, what is personal responsibility, and what is education? The face of education is changing based on people not wanting to have hard conversations anymore because it threatens them and they feel unsafe. So it’s a very interesting conversation that’s happening. Of course, I’m only at the very beginning of it, so I don’t know about any solutions yet. This is the part where everything’s falling apart right now. What would you be doing if you were not a musician? I have no idea. None whatsoever. There is no Plan B.

Better Visualization

3D makes tumors easier to see by minimizing the impact of overlapping tissue

Effective

3D finds cancers sooner and decreases the number of false positive results

Insurance

Most insurances cover 3D mammography when it is ORDERED ON THE PRESCRIPTION

Early Diagnosis

3D can detect cancers sooner by viewing images slice by slice

Less Anxiety

Less chance of a callback or unnecessary biopsy

Safe

Not much more radiation then 2D and well below the FDA’s guidelines
