New Year New Resolutions

It’s that time to think about your goals for the new year and set your resolutions. The staff at Parkway Plastic Surgery wants to offer these tips to help you achieve success when working to keep your resolutions for a healthier lifestyle:

Make your resolution something reasonable to achieve on a daily or weekly basis.

Rather than make the statement “I am going to lose weight,” resolve to change a habit that will ultimately help you lose weight, such as “I am going to exercise three times per week” or “I am going to drink 6-8 glasses of water each day.” These resolutions are easier to keep track of, accomplish and notice results from, which will heighten the chances you will be able to continue them beyond the first few weeks of the year.

Avoid choosing a resolution you have previously failed to stick to.

Though you may still wish to make those changes in your lifestyle, the knowledge that you have already faced periods in which you were unable to succeed with resolution is likely to weigh heavily on your mind as you begin this new year. Choose a fresh resolution with which you have no previous history.

Do your research prior to making any resolution.

It may be satisfying to make a statement on January 1 that you want to stick with, but give it thought before declaring a poorly thought-out resolution that is unlikely to be successful. Whether it is starting a new skincare routine, a different workout or an altered eating style, don’t let the pressure of declaring a resolution lead you to make hasty decisions that don’t provide positive benefits in the long-run.

Have fun!

New Year’s is a time for fresh starts, but also reflection for all the good health choices you are currently making. Make a list of things you already do to boost your health, happiness and confidence, and let the beginning of 2013 be a period of figuring out how to make an even healthy, happier you.

From the entire staff at Parkway Plastic Surgery “Happy New Year”!!!!!!

Parkway Plastic Surgery News

Dear Friends:

Many of you have been informed that Dr. Rebecca Glasser has resigned from Parkway Plastic Surgery. She has decided to move out of state. We wish her nothing but the best. In the interim, I have been taking over care for all of her patients.

I am pleased and excited to announce that Dr. Jaime Ranieri will join my practice in January, 2013. Dr. Ranieri grew up in upstate New York. She completed her undergraduate education at the University of Buffalo. She earned her medical degree at the State University of New York Health Science Center in Syracuse. She then spent the next eight years at Indiana University in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she completed both her residency in General Surgery and her Fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.  She has been employed with Shands/UF since 2007 starting as Assistant Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. She became Chief of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2010.

Dr. Ranieri is currently board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Ranieri enjoys all aspects of plastic surgery. She has a particularly strong interest in breast surgery, including breast reduction and breast reconstruction, as well as complex breast revisions after both breast reconstruction and cosmetic breast surgery. She also enjoys body contouring procedures, including liposuction and breast lift.

We are now taking appointments for Dr. Ranieri. She is credentialed with almost all insurance plans and offers free consultation on cosmetic procedures.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Jamie Ranieri to our practice. We trust that her addition will allow us to not only meet, but exceed your expectations. Should you have any questions regarding this announcement, please do not hesitate to contact any of my staff at Parkway Plastic Surgery.

Thank you,

On October 5th, we will be having our third annual charity fashion show benefiting The Donna Foundation.

Every day in our community, a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend learn they have breast cancer.  Their thoughts become about surviving the journey they will now travel to heal physically and emotionally.  Unfortunately for some women, their focus becomes “how will I survive financially”?  This was what inspired First Coast news anchor and three time breast cancer survivor, Donna Deegan, who so graciously shared her own personal struggle publicly.  Donna has brought such awareness in our community to this disease and celebrated many accomplishments with The Donna Foundation.  All the money raised stays right here in our local community to assist those women with breast cancer with their most critical needs. .  Now in our 9th year, the Foundation has assisted over 5,000 women and raised over $2,000,000.00.   

The Donna Foundation has partnered again this year with Parkway Plastic Surgery  to host the 3rd annual “An Evening on the Pink Carpet” to be held at the Florida Theatre on Friday evening October 5, 2012.  Dr. Rebecca Glasser of Parkway Plastic Surgery has once again invited her patients who have undergone breast reconstruction after mastectomy to model fashions from various local stores and boutiques.  Donna Deegan will also be on stage and modeling at the event.  If you have not attended the fashion show event in past years, you missed a great event!  This was a very emotional and uplifting event as it gave a group of women a chance to express themselves onstage and redefine themselves as someone other than a breast cancer survivor.  The past shows have been such a tremendous success with both men and women attending.   

The success of this year’s event will be credited largely to our sponsors and contributors.  By participating as a sponsor, your organization will lend its name and financial support to the event and so appropriately in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We have several levels of sponsorship packages as outlined. You can select the level of participation that best meets your needs, and be secure in the knowledge that your sponsorship fee will be used to help The Donna Foundation continue its mission of “Caring for Women Living with Breast Cancer”.    

We’re counting on your support!  PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS TODAY AT PARKWAY PLASTIC SURGERY!!!!!
