Neb. hospital adds plastic surgery services
Nebraska's Columbus Community Hospital has added a plastic surgery clinic led by plastic surgeon Sanjay Mukerji, who will offer both cosmetic surgery and post-trauma reconstruction. Mukerji says he was drawn to plastic surgery because he "liked the idea of combining technical surgical abilities and an eye for aesthetics to create changes that match what each patient wants."

Plastic surgeon discusses fat-reducing technologies
Nonsurgical approaches to reducing extra fat are based on cryolipolysis, radiofrequency, lasers, ultrasound or injectable materials, says plastic surgeon Brooke French. Liposuction is invasive, with abdominoplasty still more invasive, and French says anyone considering any of these procedures should ensure that their plastic surgeon is board certified and experienced.

The US Preventive Services Task Force reiterated its support for chemoprevention with tamoxifen and raloxifene and added aromatase inhibitors to the list for women who have a higher risk for breast cancer, based on clinical trials demonstrating that chemoprevention lowers invasive breast cancer incidence. However, the risks of chemoprevention likely outweigh the benefits in women at low risk for breast cancer, the task force said.
