As we round out the summer, those barbeques and beach beers can really bombard our busting bellies. We devote this month’s blog to the unsung heroes of economic vitality: The Suburban Dad.
Most of us live fairly busy lives: education, chiseling away at our career and devoting the needed time for wives and families. But somehow between the trips to soccer practice and the scattered dinner or Monday Night Football game, we (myself included) have missed a few opportunities to keep in shape and try to hold on to the youthful physique that we once had.
I have a soft spot for the 1980’s. This decade defined my childhood. Tunes such as this Billy Idol song really take me back to a great place. Let’s face it, which other time in history could mix peg-leg pants, neon pink tee-shirts and super-mullet haircuts? Ahh…those were the days.
Over the last several years, I have seen many patients who share my same age. A common request they have is rejuvenation of the eyes and face. Many patients have said: “I look so tired all of the time…and I can’t stand these bags under my eyes.” As a plastic surgeon in San Diego (and a guy in his 40s), I share similar concerns. I woke up the other day (after a not so restful night with my infant daughter) and looked in the mirror. I didn’t quite recognize the guy staring back at me: puffy lower eyelids, dark circles and a scruffy beard (ok…maybe the beard isn’t so bad?)
