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.

Plog and Pluck The craze started, as many environmentally aware practices do, in Sweden. Erik Ahlstrom noticed that there was a lot of trash littering his cycling route in Stockholm, so in 2016, he started organizing groups to pick up discarded litter while jogging, reports PBS News Hour. The practice was dubbed “plogging,” a combination of the English words for plogga (jogging) and plocka upp (pick up). All you need are running sneakers, a glove (preferably cloth, not plastic), and a garbage bag, plus sharp eyesight for spotting plastic garbage. Ahlstrom describes the activity that boosts feel-good endorphins in ploggers as becoming “like a treasure hunt.” The popularity of the sport has spread around the world, including India, where government officials have advised municipalities to organize plogging sessions as a way of combatting pollution. Now Saucony, the running shoe, apparel, and accessories company, is hosting plogs in nearly every state in the U.S. in partnership with the nonprofit Keep America Beautiful.

Sharing Your Story If you’re an aspiring writer, how would you describe yourself? You’ve never written a word but you’ve got something to say. Perhaps your completed novel is languishing in a desk drawer. Maybe you’ve lost your 6 • Long Island Woman • october 2019

unique writer’s voice after going through a major life event. Add to that the fact that although you’re a Long Islander who wants feedback, you dread the thought of traveling to Manhattan to connect with other writers. No matter which category you fit into, you can jumpstart your written-word creativity with help from The International Women’s Writer’s Guild. The organization is based in Manhattan but connects writers at all levels with others who live nearby in local writers circles, in addition to holding conferences and a wide range of literary events. On October 26 and 27 the IWWG will present The Writer’s Arc: From Page to Publication, a Big Apple weekend of workshops, panels, and networking, from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at The Cornell Club, 6 East 44th Street, New York. Literary agents, publishers, editors and publicists who work in all genres will be in attendance. Priced from $99 to $349. Learn more about conferences and local writers circles at iwwg.org.

Functional Fashion Many clothing items are designed to be pulled over the head, fastened behind the back, or zipped up the side, tasks that require the dexterity of two hands working together. But how do you get dressed if you have decreased mobility in your hands, arms, or legs? The concept of “one style fits all” has been changing for the better, so that fash-

ionable adaptive clothing has become a reality. It started in 2014 when Open Style Lab at Parsons School of Design at The New School in Manhattan first assembled designers, engineers, and occupational therapists in a nonprofit training program. Their aim was to create functional yet fashionable clothing for the one in five differently-abled people in the United States. In 2018, New York Fashion Week took notice and presented Runway of Dreams, a show featuring models representing the world’s largest minority population modeling adaptive clothing. The show featured designs sold at Nike, Kohl’s, Target, and Tommy Hilfiger USA. As an example, Hilfiger’s Tommy Adaptive Women line Adaptive offers easy-back openWomen clothing by ings, extended zipper Tommy Hilfiger pulls, magnetic buttons, wide leg openings, and more. Find Hilfiger fashions at Macy’s locations throughout Long Island, or visit usa.tommy.com. If you’d like to submit something for FYI, send it to fyi@liwomanonline.com for consideration.

Describe the work you do and how you became involved in this work. I’ve written three children’s books, with a fourth on the way, about topics important to families, including food allergies and bully prevention. I donate a portion of proceeds to charities such as F.A.R.E, Soles4Souls, and The PACER Center. I was excited to combine my love of writing and fundraising in projects. What’s the best life advice you’ve been given? My grandmother gave me amazing advice. One of nine children, she became successful when it was uncommon to see women working outside the home. She said the harder you work, the more luck you will have. It became my mantra. Success was not going to knock on my door. I had to work hard and opportunities would present themselves What has failure taught you? There’s a proverb that says, “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” Failure taught me to keep moving, as sitting still gets you nowhere. There’s a lot of rejection in the writing industry, and I was not ready for it. After some time, I focused more on yeses than nos. It didn’t matter how many of each I got; what mattered was that I was moving in a positive direction and making progress. What’s the best business advice you’ve been given? An author at a writers expo told me to treat writing as a business, more than putting words on paper. I created books to entertain children, however, I also needed to focus on selling the books, creating a marketable brand, which was more work than the writing itself. Most importantly, I needed to “think outside the bookstore,” as a majority of my books are sold in places where you would not necessarily go to buy a book. I needed to be creative — in writing and marketing as well.

Dr. Jennifer Ashton’s Life After Suicide

A

BC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton’s life was forever changed after her ex-husband’s suicide in 2017, when she had to learn to navigate grief and guilt while parenting (their) two children as a now single mother. Because of her family’s struggles and pain, Dr. Ashton, following the advice of her children, chose to share their experiences and those of others impacted by the suicide of a loved one in her book Life After Suicide. The book is a vehicle to help those who have been affected by suicide learn they are not alone and that others have found pathways to healing. Long Island Woman spoke with Dr. Ashton about her personal journey.

What influenced your decision to write this book? When this happened to my family we weren’t the first people we knew that had been affected by suicide, but there’s a combination of feeling like, ‘Oh, yet another person’ and also feeling very solitary and alone. It certainly wasn’t right away that they said, ‘yeah, let’s talk about this publicly.’ But because our experience was a national headline, my children felt really strongly that I needed to use my platform and my voice to bring awareness to something that can feel really solitary. How did you decide which other people’s stories to include in the book? After Rob’s death, I got hundreds of emails and comments on Instagram and Facebook. When my children and I decided that we were going to do this book, I started looking through the people who had contacted me. There could have been hundreds, “I needed to unfortunately, of people that I included, but the ones use my platform selected were ready and willing to talk about their story, and my voice to which, a lot of people aren’t. And I thought they were each different and representative of different groups. bring awareness You comment on the reactions of people around you after Rob’s death. Can you talk about what you to something discovered? that can feel You learn who your friends are, and people’s true colors come out. I have a friend that is no longer really solitary.” a friend, because about a year after Rob’s death 10 • Long Island Woman • october 2019

we had something happen that would normally have been pretty trivial, but my reaction was heavily predicated on the trauma I had been through, and he failed to acknowledge that, so we are no longer friends. It becomes very clear what a person’s true character is when they have the opportunity to either help someone through their feeling stages, or not. So the people that are in our lives, showed their character to be extraordinary, but a couple of people did the opposite. Do you think that had Rob died from another cause those people might have been more supportive? I think that what people don’t realize is that losing a loved one to suicide is a highly traumatizing event. It’s a different type of grief and loss from any other way. I learned that from experts in suicide. That’s not to say that losing someone in a car accident, or by homicide, or from cancer, or whatever, is not upsetting, traumatizing... Just that losing someone to suicide is unique and different. You interviewed various people of various faiths in the book. Can you comment on the shift you see in their perspective and treatment of suicide? I think that there’s been a big evolution... We need to grow and grow, and a lot of progress still needs to be made. The belief that suicide is a sin punishes the people who are left behind, not the person who already died, and so, that makes no sense, obviously. A lot of religious and faith-based communities are starting to see that, and so, they’re evolving to consider it really no different than if you die of heart disease or cancer, and I think that’s a good thing. How do you now navigate difficult moments? My children and I are the trio that is always there for each other. And so, when we are having a bad day we reach out to one or the other, and we’re very fortunate to have an amazing therapist; we all also utilize exercise as a big stress reliever. In closing, will you talk a little about your podcast? After the book, or right around the time the book came out, ABC News and I launched a podcast that was an eight-part series with the same name, Life After Suicide, and it just got amazing reviews. It’s free on Apple iTunes and it’s been submitted for a Columbia duPont award. It speaks to the fact that people are hurting and they want to find community, they want to find comfort, and they are really searching for places to learn more, and hear, more, and see and hear different inspiring stories, and understand that what they’re going through is very common. l To advertise: 516-505-0555 x1 • liwomanonline.com/advertise

Breast Cancer Patient Support: Do’s and Don’ts

H

igh diagnosis rates also mean it’s highly likely that most American women know someone who has received or will receive a cancer diagnosis. “A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, and often patients can feel scared, anxious, and alone,” says Jennifer Kolton, LCSW Oncology Social Worker, Plainview NY, “My best advice on how to support someone you love is to say something like; I am here to listen if you want to talk.” But with the different stages of breast cancer – diagnosis, treatment, and recovery – how can friends and family be there for someone without being obtrusive or annoying. “The breast cancer journey can be long and sometimes seem never-ending,” says Geri Barish, three-time breast cancer survivor and Executive Director of Hewlett House, “Education is so essential and being with those that have or are going through it makes you stronger and helps to face reality.” Asking the right questions at the time of diagnosis is critical. “When first diagnosed, you want to make sure that you let that person tell you and you don’t question or try to make someone talk,” shares Barish. Erin Nau, LCSW, Counseling, and Education Coordinator at Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program also adds, “It is important to remember the person who is diagnosed is probably feeling a mix of emotions including feeling overwhelmed.

She also recommends asking about their treatment plan.

tell them how wonderful they look unless you mean it,” shares Barish, “Ask if there is something special they would like to do. Many like to crochet or sew or paint or plant.” In other words, helping them keep some normalcy in their lives. “Patients can’t always articulate what they need so sometimes organizing with their family and community something concrete they may need, like financial support (such as setting up a GoFund me page) or a meal train, can mean a lot as well,” says Kolton. Nau agrees, adding, “Ask them how they are dealing with the treatment and how you can be helpful. Ask questions like, what do you need? Don’t make assumptions about what they need.” Treatment for breast cancer can take months, even years. For some, it’s a never-ending process. “Frequently, friends and family rush to offer help with the shock of the diagnosis,” says Sieger, “As the weeks, months, and sometimes years drag on, some don’t have the stamina to stay the course of support. Realizing that breast cancer is a marathon and not a sprint is helpful for caregivers.” But just because treatment ends, doesn’t mean the ordeal is over. “Once a person has finished their treatment, they may be looking forward to getting back to their new normal,” says Nau, “Support their needs by following their lead. It may take some time for them to get back to their previous level of physical and mental capacity, be patient.” Barish adds that it’s essential to keep a patient’s spirits up. “Make any day a celebration,” she says, “It doesn’t Resources have to be a birthday or anniversary.

It gave me something to look forward to receiving in the mail and brightened my days.” l

Still So Glad to Have This Time Together

Carol Burnett


b y by A rArie i e nNadboy a d b oy

LegeND.

Sometimes the word is used too flippantly. But in the case of Carol Burnett, it’s most appropriate and well deserved. For her multi-talented abilities (comedy, drama, singing, author...) in different mediums, but most of all for the legendary Carol Burnett Show (1967-1978), perhaps recognized as the most beloved TV variety show (remember those?) of its era and beyond. When we spoke to Carol in 2010 about the Carol Burnett Show, she said, “I remember when we all got together before the first taping, I said that no matter what happens, we’re going to have fun, and we’re all going to love each other and nobody is going to be a rotten apple in the barrel. And that was the way it was for the whole 11 years.” And that sense of good-natured fun came through our television sets and Carol’s generosity and humanity came through as well. Although she was the star of the show, she gladly shared the limelight for the sake of the sketch and let her co-stars and guests shine. But Carol doesn’t rest on her legendary status. She continues to be vibrant and active at age 86. She recently hosted A Little Help with Carol Burnett for Netflix, is collaborating with Tina Fey on a film based on her best-selling book about her late daughter, Carrie and Me, and has been touring with her popular Q&A show which she will bring to the Tilles Centre for two nights on October 22 and 23 . We last spoke in 2010 and it’s nine years later and you seem busier than ever. Well, I’m as busy, let me put it that way. I’m active and I get to do work when I want to and relax when I want to, so it’s just the best of things for me. So I guess retirement is not on the horizon? No. Not until I can’t move anymore. I just got off the road doing my Q&A shows, and I’m doing some more thru October. It’s a lot of fun for me because it keeps the old gray matter ticking. I go out there and it’s all random, and it’s 90 minutes of Q&As. I don’t want to have any preplanned questions coming in, so I’m kind of flying without a net. That’s what makes it so much fun. Many times I get the same questions over and over, then I’ll get some I’ve never heard before. What is the question that you get asked most often? There are two. ‘Why do you pull your ear?’ Then, ‘Would you do the Tarzan yell?’ Also, ‘Was Tim Conway that funny in real life?’ ‘How did you discover Vicki Lawrence and Harvey (Korman)?’ ‘What was your favorite sketch?’ Or, ‘Who was your favorite guest star?’ Things like that. What was the most interesting question you’ve been asked? Oh my! I was in Texas and a woman raised her hand and I called on her. She said, ‘Carol, if you could be a member of the opposite sex for 24 hours and then pop back into being yourself again, who would you be and what would you do?’ Huh? Right.! That’s what I said. I thought, ‘Oh my Lord.’ The audience went, ‘Ooh.’ I thought and I thought. I said kind of a little prayer to myself. I said, ‘Okay, Lord, I’m going to open my mouth and whatever comes out is going to be your fault.’ Now remember this was about seven or eight or nine years ago. I swear I didn’t know I was going to say this until it came out of my mouth. I said, ‘I’d be Osama Bin Laden and I’d kill myself.’ It was bizarre. It was surreal almost. I didn’t know I was going to say it until it just popped out. Then I said, ‘Thank you, Lord. That was a good answer.’ That was the weirdest I think I’ve ever gotten. You opened each ‘Carol Burnett Show’ with a Q&A with the audience and that established a personal connection with not just the audience in the studio, but the TV audience as well. It broke down the celebrity barrier. I appreciate that. That’s the way I felt. At first, I kind of balked at the idea of it before we started. Our executive producer, Bob Banner, said, ‘Carol, instead of having a comedian go out and warm up the studio audience, you should do it.’ I said, ‘What? I would be too scared that nobody would ask a question or if they did I wouldn’t be able to come up with a snappy answer.’ He said, ‘It’s important for you to go out and be yourself before you put on all those outfits and the crazy wigs and black out your teeth and be different characters. Let them get to know you first.’ I said, ‘Okay, I’ll do it the first four weeks of our show, and

if it doesn’t sit right with me, let’s just forget the whole idea.’ When I went out for first show I was really pretty raw and scared, and it shows if you ever see the very first show we did. After I did it for a couple weeks the audience started to come with questions. Bob Banner said, ‘We’ll just put some people in the audience that are going to ask you ... and you’ll know what the questions are.’ Then I said, ‘You know what? No! If I’m going to do it, it’s got to be honest. If I wind up having egg on my face then at least everybody will know it’s truthful.’ After about the fourth week of doing it, I started to get into the groove and it was one of my favorite parts of the show for 11 years. It was also fun because lots of times we did stuff that nobody had ever done before. Like there was this one lady who wanted to get up and sing. She was so funny. She looked like Bea Arthur when Bea did Maude. She came up and she was absolutely fearless. She was great. She belted it out and I was belting it out with her. Then, at the end, I had a different way to end the song, and she had a different way to end the song from my way. We just kind of stood and looked at each other and there was a pause, and she looked at me and she said, ‘Well, you screwed it up.’ Well, that was pure gold. I just cracked up. The audience loved it. A couple of years ago I got a message from someone who knew her and she passed away at the age of 100 and they played that clip at her memorial. You’ve amassed so many awards and honors. Is there any one award or honor in particular that means the most to you? The very first one that I ever got was at UCLA, and I was a freshman. I was in the theater arts department, and I was voted the Most Promising Newcomer. I have that and it’s on the wall in my office. There were so many for different reasons. The Mark Twain and the Kennedy Center, and then the most recent one, which I was just absolutely gobsmacked about, was the Golden Globe award that they’re going to name after me. That was pretty amazing because they never had a television award. They have the Cecil B. Demille Award in the Golden Globes for film, but they never had one for television. They created one this year and they were going to give it to me, and I said, ‘Oh, that’s so sweet. Thank you.’ Then they said, ‘And we’re going to name it after you.’ That was really quite a surprise. One award that they don’t give out in the industry is for a life well lived. I can’t recall ever hearing a negative word about you from anyone you ever worked with. If anything, it’s always been how wonderful and generous you’ve been to work with. Oh, thank you. Well, I think I’ve got that in my DNA, but it was really solidified when I was a second banana on The Garry Moore Show, way, way back in the covered wagon days when I was getting my start. Durward Kirby and I were kind of the supporting comedians to Garry Moore. I remember sitting around on a Monday reading the script for that week, because we would be taping on a Friday. Almost always, if he had a punch line or a joke, he’d look at it and say, ‘You know what? Give this to Carol, or give this to Durward. They can say it funnier than I can.’ Even though he was the star of the show, he wanted a true rep company. So when I got my show, even though my name was on it, there were several sketches that we did where I would be supporting Harvey or Harvey would be supporting Tim or Tim would be supporting Vicki or Vicki would be ... We’d all be supporting each other. It was really like Summer Stock. We had a true rep company even though my name was in the title. Tim would do stuff that he had never done in rehearsal. I let him go because it was gold. Somebody once said, ‘Why are you letting him do all of that?’ “ I said, ‘Don’t you think that he should be doing that because of the laughs that we’re getting? People are going to talk about it and tune in next week. Let him go.’ We spoke to Vicki Lawrence a few months ago, and she said: “I learned from Carol how the business of show business should be run. Just watching how she conducted herself as the head of the show is definitely a trickle down theory. She was the best teacher I had in my life, and there’s not a day that I don’t thank her and think of her.” Oh. That is so sweet. I think that puts into perspective the impact that you’ve had on the people you’ve worked with. Thank you. Well, you know, I just feel that’s the way everybody should act.

This must be a very important and emotional undertaking Well, in your industry it doesn’t seem to be that way, but for you. Can you tell us how this came about? you stand apart.

You’re going to have to be ship and steer it, where strong and let them hate you until they come through in a positive way on the other end. You’re also a very good writer and author. Are there any books in the works? the stars were the kids. I don’t know, because the only way I can write is to write about what I’ve been through They were so cute.

And so I’m going to be on top of it. That’s really the thing I am thinking about now. You’re 50th anniversary special in 2017 was wonderful. It must have been quite an just blurt it out.

There were about eighteen produce a movie of your guests and I said, ‘How can we take care of the guests and still show some funny clips?’ But we were able to work it out. I was concerned about not giving the guests enough air book, ‘Carrie and Me’ about you time. But, they were cool with it and it worked. and your late daughter. We knew we were going to do tributes to Harvey (Korman) and to Bob Mackie, who was Yes. a brilliant costume designer. And I was just thrilled at the reception. It was quite wonderful. Since Tim Conway passed recently, what could you tell us about what he brought to the mix of the show. And what will you remember him for most? First of all, he was like Jimmy Stewart. He was as nice as he was talented. He was also fearless. And it was always fun to see what he was going to come up with.

T h e L o ng Islan d Woman interview We would do two shows on Friday, in front of two different audiences and we would tape both shows. The first show was at five o’clock and Tim would do the sketches exactly the way we’d rehearse them. And then after he’d go to our director and he’d say ‘Did you get all the shots so that everything was right?’ So we knew that we had that safety net. Then he would go crazy on the second show and we never knew what he was going to do. Ninety-nine percent of the time, that’s what we would go with. He was kind enough to go to the writers and say, ‘Would you mind if I added such and such?’ He wouldn’t tell them exactly what he was going to do. And I have to give our writers credit. They said, ‘Listen, if you can make it funnier, go for it.’ There was just a sweetness about him and a fearlessness about him. His comedy was amazing. We let him go. The other shows that he had, they would sit on him. If you were to put together a cast for the show, with some of the talent available today, who would you be interested in working with? Oh my gosh! Oh wow! Steve Martin, Marty Short, Lily Tomlin. They’ve been established for years and years. Also, Jim Carrey, Bill Hader… There are just a plethora of wonderful, funny people. I’m so happy now, because when I got started it was Lucy (Lucille Ball) and that was it. And now you’ve got Amy (Poehler), Tina (Fey), Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Maya Rudolph… I don’t want to miss anybody…. Jane Lynch. And all these wonderful women who not only are funny and are stars, but they also have their own production companies. There’s still a bit of a glass ceiling I guess, but they are breaking through and I think that’s wonderful. I’m not into stand-up. I admire people who can do stand up. But the ones that interest me the most are the sketch performers. Like Sid Ceasar was, and Jackie Gleason. They didn’t stand up and tell jokes or do bits. They were with other people. That’s the way I always liked it. I just wanted to lock eyeballs with somebody rather than being out there alone. Do you have any aspirations to do something on Broadway again? No. The most recent thing I did was six weeks with Brian Dennehy where we did Love Letters, and I enjoyed that. We did my show as if we were doing a Broadway musical comedy review every week. What I loved about it was that it would change every week. We wouldn’t be doing the exact same thing week after week. Whereas Broadway, it’s eight shows a week doing the same thing, show after show after show, and you try to keep it fresh. You’ve done it a hundred times, but this is the first time that particular audience is seeing it. And you have to really be careful about your health. You can’t get a cold or a headache. It’s very tough. I prefer doing something and then going on to something else. People think, ‘Oh well, they’re only on stage two hours a night.’ It’s more than that, because you gear yourself up the whole day for that curtain. I did over a year on Broadway when I first started out in Once Upon a Mattress when I was young. And I doubled on The Garry Moore Show at the same time. Now that you’re at this point in your life and career, what can you share with us that you’ve learned. 20 • Long Island Woman • October 2019

“For every parent who’s going through something like that with their kids — you can’t be their best friend. You’re going to have to be strong and let them hate you until they come through in a positive way on the other end.” I think it is just one day at a time. And also to be grateful. I had a friend who always said, ‘I go to bed at night and I think of three gratefuls for the day that I just lived. Three gratefuls and three did-wells.’ And that’s a nice habit to get into. And another thing is to be untouched by triumph and untroubled by failure. In other words, keep an even keel. Things can change on a dime. Can you tell us something about you that might surprise us? I don’t know if it would surprise you, it’s kind of dull, but I love crosswords. My husband and I do the New York Times and the L.A. Times crosswords every morning. Good for you. I said we do them.

WHY GET A 3D MAMMOGRAM? BECAUSE YOU DESERVE THE BEST More Accurate Detection

Insurance

Better Visualization

Early Diagnosis

Effective

Less Anxiety

Standard 2D mammography hides small cancer behind dense tissue

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

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

Most insurances cover 3D mammography when it is ORDERED BY THE PHYSICIAN

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

Less chance of a callback or unnecessary biopsy

Safe

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