ASK ROBIN HERTZ: EXPLANTING THE BOOBS UPDATE!

It’s been 8 weeks since I had surgery to explant my breast implants.

Thought I’d share what’s been going on.

There are so many levels and areas that are effected.

Physically I have smiley face incisions under my breasts where Dr Feng went in and skillfully removed the implant along with the capsule in one piece. Not as easy as youde think because the capsule adheres to ribs and chest wall when under the muscle. They had ad to be scraped off the ribs. Ouch.Continue reading

She’s Your New Breast Friend

Surgeon for Breast Reconstruction at the Quatela Center – Dr. Emese Kalnoki

I managed to live without my hair because I knew it would grow back. But I couldn’t cling to the same kind of hope after my double mastectomy. Unlike hair, breasts weren’t going to grow back. I thought it was going to be fine. They were only breasts; just because they were gone didn’t mean I was any less of a woman.Continue reading

The History of Women: From BRAWN to BUFF

Women have always been the soft beauty of the sexes; made of sugar and spice and everything nice. . . OK, let’s be real! Women are the care takers, the bag holders, the house cleaners, and the glue that holds families and life together. Let’s not forget we still continue to create life! Yes, we are sugar and spice, but we are all strong and BRAWN wrapped up in what used to only be viewed as a smooth, curvy, soft body. All of the macho “pick things up and put them down”, jacked muscles and fun activities were predominantly geared towards men. Our BRAWN was always there, but we needed to bring out the BUFF! Like the Hulk exploding out of his clothes when you made him mad!

HEALTH & WELLNESS, IN HER DEFENSE

What Can I Do?

You watch the news, you see random, everyday, people being victimized by criminals. You think: “She is just like me, all she was doing was walking to her car” or “I jog there as well and she was attacked.” Pretty scary when you think about how a random crime can affect you. How a seemingly innocent night out, trip to the park to run, or a drive in your car can become a life changing event.

“I need to do something,” you say to yourself, but what CAN you do?

Healthy Snacks for the Mindless Eaters

For most of my life, I didn’t have weight issues. I was always active in sports, I watched what I ate and was a healthy individual. I never had eating disorders or anything aggressive like that, I was just constantly active, on the move and definitely health conscious.  In high school, I never was one to hang out with the kids who were experimenting in drugs or alcohol and I drank maybe once or twice, so that was never really part of my life until college.

Spa Cheers to Health!

Spa cheers to health!

Mention  the  spa and you can almost hear a chorus sighing: wouldn’t that be nice? Let’s face it, most of us dream of a visit to the spa.   Whether we have ever visited one or never have set a foot in one, spas never fail to evoke the ultimate, ever-elusive feeling of relaxation and pampering we usually reserve for the elite and glamorous.  And yes, isn’t it nice to feel like a celebrity and indulge yourself in a world all your own, even if only for a few hours?
