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.

Trailblazing Women e

One hundred years ago, the 19th Amendment was passed, giving American women the right to vote. Celebrate this milestone of democracy during Women’s History Month, marking the anniversary of women’s suffrage as well as the 10-year anniversary of the first Women in the World Summit. The organization was founded by Tina Brown, former editor of The New Yorker and Vanity Fair magazines, to showcase live journalism events and present the work of women leaders and trailblazers. Past speakers and first-person storytellers have included Oprah Winfrey, Ronan Farrow, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and more notables from around the globe. The forum takes place on Thursday and Friday, April 2 and 3, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. both days at David H. Koch Theater, 20 Lincoln Center Plaza in Manhattan. See this year’s lineup of speakers and purchase tickets ($75-$450) for the event at womenintheworld.com.

Sensational Seeds Last summer, my 4-year-old granddaughter reminded me what the season was all about as she plucked a sun-warmed, ruby-ripe tomato from the towering vine in her Suffolk backyard and bit into the juicy sweetness with gusto. The tomatoes in her yard tasted vastly better than any supermarket variety. Although it’s still cold outside, March is the perfect time to plant seeds indoors on Long Island. Start windowsill tomatoes, fruits, or other vegetables by March 20, about six weeks before the last outdoor frost, when the seedlings can be put in the thawed ground. Among the best are the heirloom tomatoes originally grown before World War II, based on organic, pesticide-free gardening methods. Try the four-star Mortgage Lifter ($4.95 for one packet/125 seeds), an immense, tasty beauty developed by a 1930s gardener who cross-pollinated tomatoes for six seasons; he sold them for $1 apiece and paid off his $6,000 mortgage in six years. More fascinating slices of history to get you thinking about spring— plus a planting calendar and more heirloom and other plant seeds — can be found at Burpee Seeds and Plants, at burpee. com or local nurseries.

wedding themselves because of financial and career issues, as The New York Times recently reported: “The percentage of women who work in Japan is higher than ever, yet … Japanese wives and mothers are still typically expected to bear the brunt of the housework, child care, and help for their aging relatives.” Sensing a trend, In 2014, Cerca Travel in Kyoto began offering bridal ceremonies for single women. In the U.S., life coach-author Sasha Cagen told Vogue magazine that a month before turning 40 she wanted to do something symbolic and big by marrying especially those parts of herself she tried to deny or disown “… even the parts that don’t look pretty, such as jealousy or occasional depressions.” Actress Emma Watson told British Vogue magazine that she is “self-partnered.” The practice of solo marriage (sologamy) is not new; it dates back to American Linda Barker’s self-marriage in 1993. Although some women reject the traditional bride and groom scenario, they are still choosing full-on wedding ceremonies complete with the white bridal gown, the large audience of family and friends, and the tiered cake — before embarking on a solo honeymoon.

Describe the work you do and how you became involved in this work. Last year, I wrote my first book, titled Me, Again: How Postpartum Depression and Anxiety Transformed My Life. As a two-time survivor of postpartum depression and anxiety, after sharing my story I was encouraged by several people to write my own book—so I did! Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are very common: 1 in 5 moms (and 1 in 10 dads) will suffer from this. My goal is to help moms, dads, and families feel like they aren’t alone. I held the title of Mrs. Suffolk County from 2015 to 2019, and I now use my pageant title representing New York State as Mrs. New York USA Ambassador to promote my platform. I am a very active volunteer with the Postpartum Resource Center of New York, which helps families in New York every day. What was your most important break? My most important break was hearing another mom’s experience with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and seeing that she was now doing very well and helping other moms. While listening to her, for the first time I felt hope about my future, and I made a promise to myself to give back when I was well again. What has failure taught you? Failure has taught me to be kind to myself and that a failure isn’t the end of the world. I learned that you can always try again, make adjustments to plans, or even choose a new goal to reach. Based on your area of specialty, what advice would you give to other women? You are not alone. It is okay to ask for help of any kind when you need it. You must also take care of yourself: You cannot care for others if you are running on empty.

Therese Anne Fowler’s A Good Neighborhood

T

herese Anne Fowler, best known for her breakout historical fiction bestseller, Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, has delivered a powerful work of contemporary fiction in A Good Neighborhood. This ambitious, issue-driven novel takes an unflinching look at some of the most troubling issues around race and class in America. Delving deep into characters that are relatable even at their most flawed, the book explores the clash of two families in an otherwise idyllic North Carolina neighborhood. At the center of the story are the teenaged children of the families, as star-crossed as Romeo and Juliet. Xavier, the biracial son of Valerie, a widowed African-American professor of forestry and ecology, is a high school senior with a pending college scholarship and a talent for classical guitar. Though he doesn’t have much time for girls, there’s something about the new nextdoor neighbor that captivates him. Photo: John Kessel Juniper Whitman is a year younger than Xavier and, on the face of it, they have little in common. She’s the white daughter of a nouveau riche family that barreled into the neighborhood, illegally clearing the land and dredging into the earth to build a backyard pool and sprawling McMansion. Juniper, who has been overprotected her whole life, took a purity pledge with her stepfather at age fourteen, and is still forbidden to date. The reader senses something just a bit offbeat strumming beneath the surface of that father-daughter relationship, and this mystery is just one of the questions that propels this fascinating story forward. When Valerie’s beloved oak tree shows signs of impending death, she knows who to blame—the Whitmans next door. But she doesn’t know about the A powerful and secret relationship between her son and their daughter. Juniper’s parents are also in the dark. As Valerie’s quest compelling for justice advances, a more sinister and malignant injustice comes to a boil, and the result is a story that novel that’s leaves readers with profound questions about how we sure to ignite can fix what’s broken in our neighborhoods and our nation. It’s a powerful and compelling novel that’s sure impassioned to ignite impassioned discussions and captivate book discussions clubs everywhere. Therese Anne Fowler answered questions about this and captivate richly layered story for Long Island Woman. book clubs “A Good Neighborhood” deals head-on with racism in America. What made you decide to tackle everywhere. this ambitious topic? 10 • Long Island Woman • march 2020

The news is rife with accounts of the ways people of color are treated unjustly by both the criminal justice system and by white people who feel increasingly empowered to bully, threaten, and abuse them. I find this dismaying and wrong, and I needed to do something to address the situation. Toni Morrison once asked herself, “What can I do where I am?” Her response—and mine, in asking myself that question—was to write fiction that takes the problem as its premise. I was fascinated by the storytelling style. Can you talk a little about your choice of narrator for the tale? The novel is told in what’s called the collective voice, or first-person-plural point of view. This means that instead of the reader getting the story from one individual (first-person) or from a nonspecific narrator (third-person), the story comes to us from the people who live in the neighborhood—as a group, like a Greek chorus that sees all. The technique is not often used anymore, but comes out of early classic literature and is especially effective for cautionary tales like A Good Neighborhood. The relationship between the teenagers at the heart of this story is so endearing. What drew Juniper and Xavier together? I like to think it was more than physical desire. Yes, as we all know, teenage romance is often more about hormones than it is about substance! In this case, though, there is more going on: these two are kindred spirits. They’re both a little bit introverted, they’re both tender-hearted, and although they’ve had traumas in their pasts, they tend to be optimistic about what’s ahead. The two adult women in the book, Valerie and Julia, are intriguing in their differences. In other circumstances, could they have been friends? Yes, I absolutely think they could’ve been. As different as they are, they share plenty of common ground—as mothers, as women, as people who have had to overcome difficult personal histories and are trying to forge happiness for themselves and their families. I found Brad a chilling antagonist, especially since he saw himself as a stand-up guy. Can you talk about why it was important to let readers understand his mindset? I think this is about the adage, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” People like Brad are hidden in plain sight, but in showing what motivates him and those like him, I’m arming readers so that they can recognize his type—and maybe head off trouble before it can happen. What one question do you hope book club readers will discuss? I think the essential question to consider is how we can do better— individually, and as a community, a country. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could all behave with empathy and mutual respect? l To advertise: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise

According to Emily Ortman, Communications Director for the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR), this hinders the medical community’s understanding of the differences in how women and men experience pain conditions and respond to treatments. “Not only do doctors sometimes dismiss women’s pain, but women may also ignore their own pain, thinking that it’s normal,’ shared Ortman, “Women may hear from friends and family members that their pain is a normal part of being a woman, when in fact it is abnormal and impacting their quality of life.” Presently, SWHR is working to identify research gaps and address unmet health needs for diseases that disproportionately or differently affect women, including for pain conditions like migraine, endometriosis, and osteoarthritis. “We need more funding for research on women’s pain conditions, better training for health care providers in the evaluation and management of pain, and continued efforts to educate and inform women so they can better advocate for their own health needs,” said Ortman. In other words, women need to learn to be their own best advocates and stand up for themselves when they feel something isn’t right, or they disagree with their treatment. SWHR’s Migraine Patient Toolkit is an excellent example of how people with chronic pain conditions like migraines can work with their health care providers to best manage their care. Additionally, the 21st Century Cures Act emphasizes the critical importance of women’s participation in medical research and the study of sex and gender-based differences in disease said Ortman. “Efforts like the Cures Act that work to ensure greater inclusion of women in all levels of research and health care will help us overcome longtime biases and “Women may move the field of women’s health hear from forward,” shared Ortman, “SWHR wants to see women’s health on equal friends and footing with men’s health. We want to make family members women’s health mainstream.”

that their pain is a normal part of being a woman, when in fact it is abnormal and impacting their quality of life.”

The Importance of Depression Screenings During Perimenopause A recent survey sent of 500 practicing obstetrician-gynecologists aimed to help the medical community better understand the rates of screening practices and management of depression in perimenopause. According to the results, almost 40 percent of women experience symptoms of depres-

sion during perimenopause, but it often goes undetected and untreated. About a third of those surveyed, 34.1 percent, did not regularly screen their perimenopausal patients for depression. But 85.7 percent of respondents claimed they would be able to recognize depression in perimenopausal women. “Given the prevalence of depressive symptoms in perimenopausal women, the recent publication of guidelines for the diagnosis and management of depression in this population, and the availability of safe and effective therapies, all healthcare providers should be screening their female patients for depression. Improving training for healthcare providers in the evaluation and treatment of depression is important to optimizing patient outcomes,” said Stephanie Faubion, M.D., medical director of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS.)

Concerns About Today’s Most Popular Dieting Trend Dieting trends are nothing new. A quick online search lists dozens of new fads aimed at losing the pounds and keeping them off. And most of them promise quick, natural results. But how effective and safe are these diets du jour? One of the biggest to come to the forefront in the past year was intermittent fasting, where the dieter limits their eating to certain hours of the day. “Intermittent Fasting is about WHEN you eat vs. WHAT you eat,” shared Maria Sorbara Mora, MS, CEDRD, CDN, C-IAYT-S, “It does not ask individuals to eat in any specific way, omit any food groups or follow any type of diet plan – so you can eat what you want as long as you limit the hours you are eating.” While the idea of structure and quick results may appeal to many, dieters should be wary of the dangers of intermittent fasting. Metabolism slows down: Mora said, “Any style of eating that slows the rate at which the body uses vital energy is not in line with health and wellbeing. Lowered metabolism triggers the body to store calories as fat and can lead to fatigue.” Fasting promotes overeating: Cutting calories by fasting for periods of the day can disrupt blood sugar levels leading the body to experience intense hunger, cravings, urges to overeat, and binge eating. Dangerous to those with pre-existing conditions: Those with diabetes, stomach ulcers, eating disorders, heart or blood pressure issues are told to stay away from intermittent fasting because it may exacerbate these conditions. Pregnant or nursing women are told the same. May cause sleep and mood problems: “Without glucose, the brain cannot function well. When individuals fast our stress, hormones increase,” said Mora, “This can lead to sleep problems, irritability, fatigue, weakness, anxiety, and depression.” l To advertise: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise

The Long Island Woman Interview

Jane Fonda

Opening Up and Speaking Out

“I try to be helpful; I think being honest is being helpful. I mean, why talk about yourself if you’re not gonna open up and be real.” Photo: Danielle St. Laurent

D

oes Jane Fonda contradict herself? Very well, she contradicts herself. After all, this is an actress who began her career with a Tony-winning turn on Broadway but then gained stardom playing hookers and babes in such films as Walk on the Wild Side, Circle of Love, and Barbarella. This is also a woman who bought into her famous dad’s patriotic values and yet committed diplomatic acts that bordered on treason. A woman who became a feminist symbol but was frequently and willingly caught in the spell of powerful men. Oh, and a woman who renounced the trappings of L.A. and materialism only to marry billionaire mogul Ted Turner. She is also a woman who has made a career—in the notoriously amnesic entertainment industry— last six full decades and counting. If you didn’t know Jane Fonda as the vivacious newlywed smooching Robert Redford in Barefoot in the Park, you knew her as the scarified prostitute in Klute. You cried when she interacted with papa Henry in On Golden Pond and laughed watching her gain office empowerment in 9 to 5. And if you missed her arc on The Newsroom,

surely you’ve seen her camaraderie with Lily Tomlin on Grace and Frankie, now airing its sixth season (and shooting its seventh) on Netflix. Shapeshifting plus longevity equals an endlessly fascinating personality, one that Fonda herself delved into in her 2005 memoir, My Life So Far and that HBO recounted in its recent documentary, Jane Fonda: A Life in Five Acts. Having reached the age of 82, the actress is readier than ever to offer frank assessments of her life choices, career cul-de-sacs, and political stances. She even tours occasionally, doing live Q&A/ life-overview concerts (though a December 2019 stint at the NYCB Westbury Theatre was canceled without explanation). Fonda has taken hits, sometimes deservedly, for thoughtless public gestures, but her recent arrests for protesting climate change attest to a decades-long yearning to make her celebrity voice count for something. To be sure, she knows well the double standard often placed on women who speak their minds versus men who do the same. As she notes in her book, when husband Turner opined, the press would call him passionate. When she’d do it, she was branded as “strident and shrill”—as evidenced by a Life Magazine article about her that was titled “Non-Stop Activist: Nag, Nag Nag.” Of course, to modern eyes, that sounds more like a badge of honor than a knock. “I’m an open-upper,” she told Long Island Woman. “I’ve done a lot of the public speaking by now, and it tends to be a lot of fun—often revelatory. I think it’s fair to say the audiences always

leave having had a very good time and maybe have learned a few things. I try to be helpful; I think being honest is being helpful. I mean, why talk about yourself if you’re not gonna open up and be real? All of us women have had the same struggle, the same challenges—and many men, as well. So you have to tell the truth.” Even those who question Fonda’s actions—be it promoting peace by riding a North Vietnamese antiaircraft gun or having work done despite being the icon of video exercise—will likely be disarmed by her frankness and confessional style. She has long apologized for the horrid optics of the Hanoi Jane photo, and in 2018 she told Vanity Fair that, like it or not, plastic surgery gave her “a decade more to survive in the business” of Hollywood. To this, she added, “I have a fake hip and a fake knee and a fake thumb. Just call me the Bionic Woman!” Asked by Long Island Woman what she has learned about herself by doing the documentary and speaking tours, Fonda deadpans, “Nothing. When I wrote my memoirs, that was where I really uncovered things about myself that I hadn’t realized. I had turned 60 and was looking at my last act, so I spent time studying the past.” In directing her film about Fonda, Susan Lacy chose to partition the actress’s life into five acts—four of them marked by her being under the sway of a powerful man, be it father Henry Fonda or ex-husbands Roger Vadim, Tom Haden, and mogul Ted Turner. But now that she’s in her most independent era, Fonda chafes at the movie’s structure. “Personally, I divide my life into three acts: The first 30 years, the second 30 years, and the last 30 years. I couldn’t know how to live my last 30 years if I hadn’t known what I had done in the first 30 years. So I spent five years researching my life, my parents, my grandparents. And that process taught me a great deal. So when it came time to do the documentary or the speaking, no, I’m not learning during that time. I’m teaching.”

As the documentary makes clear, for all her manning of political and feminist barricades, Fonda often defined herself in terms of powerful men: pleasing an unreachable dad, fitting into Vadim’s hedonistic lifestyle, pouring her time and money into Hayden’s campaigning, and being swept off her feet by Turner’s bonhomie. Yet whether by Lacy’s conception or Fonda’s

own, the last segment is about the actress alone. “Because of the work I did to write my book,” Fonda says, “I certainly understand myself better at this age. I have had two other important relationships (since her divorce from Turner), but I realize that’s no longer for me. I have a whole lot more time to devote to other things now that I’m not in a relationship and know that I never will be in a relationship again with a man. I have lots of relationships but they’re not romantic, they’re friendships.” No question, Fonda is entitled to have complicated feelings about the male-female dynamic. Her mother, a victim of sexual abuse, committed suicide when Fonda was 12, and the actress herself experienced both childhood sexual trauma and rape as an adult. For her, the “Woke” era is long overdue, and she offers a snarky laugh when I suggest that the era has become so sensitive to harassment, men must be super-careful in their interactions with women. “Super-careful?,” she chortles, “No, men just have to behave like decent human beings. If that means being super-careful, that’s very interesting because it says a lot about men. Hopefully, the `Time’s Up’/`Me Too’ movement will help men regain their humanity and realize that they’re not entitled to treat women however they want. More women are speaking up—which helps other people to realize how pervasive sexism— including violent sexual assault—is, and that’s all to the good. We are human beings together on this planet, and we have to respect each other. The movements are a good, important step forward in the journey to that goal.” It is this idea of looking backward and inward, of figuring out how you arrived where you are and how best to get wherever you might be going, that seems to be most crucial to Fonda’s psyche these days. As she told NPR, “You don’t become wise by having a lot of experience; you become wise by reflecting deeply on the experiences that you’ve had.” Put another way, having newly embraced Christianity and her own efficacy as a woman, Fonda ends her 2005 autobiography by owning and appreciating, “Every earned line on my skin and scar on my heart . . . I can affirm every imperfection as my share of our mutual, flawed, fragile humanity.” Those who have seen the HBO documentary know that the actress is not above giving herself the occasional pep talk, addressing herself by her last name and dispensing no-nonsense self-recommendations. It is what she does when I ask what she would tell her 20-year-old self if given the opportunity to go back and advise young Jane. “It’s gonna be a tough road, Fonda!” comes the reply. “Keep your head up and your eyes open, and know that if you are intentional about getting better and braver and stronger, then you can. So don’t give up.” ▲ David Lefkowitz hosts the Dave’s Gone By show Saturday mornings live on Facebook (facebook.com/radiodavelefkowitz). TO ADVERTISE: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise

Catching Up With Carol

by Carol Silva

Just Say Yes

I

write this a month after my last show on News 12 Long Island. Since December 20th I have been asked countless times, “So what’s next?” I’m just trying to catch my breath and catch up on some sleep after 44 years of doing morning news. That’s 44 years of getting up anywhere between 4 or even a grueling 2:15 in the morning! I’m honest and explain that right now I’m only committed to growing my soul, my heart, my spirit and my mind, and then sharing what comes out of it. That’s enough for me. But I got something of a recipe when I met 29year old executive chef Allison Fasano. Allison was a keynote speaker at Long Island’s powerful 2020 Athena International Leadership Awards. Athena’s mission includes “… to develop, support and honor women leaders… to reach their full potential” and with more women leaders, create a balance in leadership around the world. That awards room was full of highly–I mean highly accomplished–women. They run health, corporate and not-forprofit businesses. Women responsible for billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of patients, lives, students, jobs and the needy. At 29, Allison wasn’t sure what she could offer them, so she served up some wisdom. Allison said after seeing the Food Network I got something for the first time when she was 11 she told her dad she was going to be a chef. 15 years later she has worked in of a recipe Michelin Star restaurants and appeared on Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay, Chopped and other shows. Now Allison when I met is the Executive Chef at the new 7 Gerard in Huntington. 29-year old That’s all in an industry where women occupy fewer than executive chef 7% of executive chef positions.

catered to male chefs. Yes–to getting her hands dirty doing the non-glamorous jobs in restaurants. Yes–to getting a real education where they’d feed her passion for Italian cuisine–studying in Calabria, Italy! Yes to going on television. And Yes–to standing up for herself in kitchens when she needs to. (Allison says she can get loud when necessary.) Suddenly I realized I was at that luncheon because I had been saying a lot of “Yeses” since December 20. Yes–to being a guest on entrepreneur George Andriopoulos’ podcast The LaunchCast, where we challenged my beliefs on life, faith, truth in journalism, leadership. That’s where I met Jennifer Muccioli, Director of Internal Communications at KPMG US. Jennifer brought me to the Athena Awards. That’s where I met at least five people I will follow up with, just to learn more about them, how they got where they are, and especially about me. Carol with Chef Allison Fasano I left the awards and drove two-and-a-half hours north for another Yes. I shared the wisdom of my spiritual mentor, my old friend, my “second Mother,” 91-year old Nana Rita. Then even though I was tired, I drove back the next day, saying Yes again to dinner with a prolific music and entertainment producer. Elizabeth was wonderful and gave me a great perspective on my journey. It’s got me thinking about how often we say No; how often we turn down the chance to try someone or something new or different; how often we say No to expanding our life. And it’s got me focused on remembering: A lot can happen if you just say Yes! l For more than 40 years Carol Silva has had the honor of telling the stories of the people of Long Island and beyond.

Rita Rudner

Special Guest: Rachael Sage.

She may speak softly, but she carries a big wit. A housefilling favorite in Las Vegas, Rudner delivers her stand-up with a wide-eyed sweetness (and in a sequined gown) that belies the acid observations this award-winning comedian is best known for. Rudner holds the title for longest-running and most successful one-person comedy show Las Vegas, and once you’ve heard her trademark clever observations and seen her icepick-sharp timing, you’ll know why.

Howard Jones Acoustic Trio is an intimate strippeddown trip through Howard’s 30-year music career. Featuring Howard on electric piano, Robin Boult (Roger Daltry, Dave Stewart, Fish) on acoustic guitar and Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo, Belinda Carlisle, John Paul Jones) on chapman stick, these shows deliver a fresh take on Howard’s best-known hits. These shows also provide the opportunity for the audience to hear first-hand about the inspiration behind Howard’s beloved material as well asstories from his touring career.
