A study out of the Spanish National Cancer Research Center has discovered a link between a gene generally associated with the regulation of aging and obesity. The study was performed on mice, so whether the link between this age-regulating gene and obesity pertains to humans remains to be seen, but there are major implications for the study and treatment of obesity. http://ow.ly/mlI9c

A 2002 study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that up to 85% of post-surgical staph infections come from the patient's own bacteria. In fact, DNA evidence showed that the bacteria frequently came from the patient's nose. These findings have resulted in a number of new recommended guidelines for pre- and post-op protocol in order to fight staph infections. http://ow.ly/m5aHO

In his latest blog post, Dr. Rothaus discusses how to screen your sunscreen, and why it is so important to protect yourself from the sun. "...almost 20% of Americans will develop will develop a form of skin cancer at some point... Although the public is far more aware of the importance of sunscreen than in the past, sunscreen is still underutilized and little understood by the average consumer." http://ow.ly/m7SF3

"Regenerative medicine" offers promising ways to address heretofore difficult wounds and burns. Despite the visibility of cosmetic procedures, plastic surgery began as a reconstructive specialty; the first "modern" plastic surgeons were schooled on battlefields, rebuilding the broken bodies of soldiers. These new tools will allow plastic surgeons to help so many more––soldiers and civilians alike. http://ow.ly/m55xa

Despite my usual misgivings about mixing plastic surgery and television, here the Wall Street Journal makes "the case for plastic surgery" by looking at a popular Korean TV show. http://ow.ly/lQeCY

NIH scientists have mapped out the genomes of all the species of fungi that live on healthy human skin. "Human skin surfaces are complex ecosystems for microorganisms, including fungi, bacteria and viruses, which are known collectively as the skin microbiome." This work could lead to treatments for various dermatological issues. http://ow.ly/m5a8c

Plastic and reconstructive surgery are wound care specialties. "Stitches" are probably the most recognizable example of this aspect plastic surgery, but wound care is a complex and vitally specialty. Other factors contribute to one's ability to heal properly, which further underscores the importance of a healthy lifestyle: "diabetes and obesity are the largest contributing factors for wounds." http://ow.ly/m57Sg
My hope is that over time all of those "eww gross" looks will add up to people who will be better informed if a family member or friend develops a non-healing wound.

The millions of years of trial and error that comprise evolution amount to the world's biggest and greatest scientific experiment. Modern medicine's best teacher remains the human body itself. New cytophilic wound dressings attempt to mimic scabs' ability to promote cell growth, stop bleeding and prevent infection. http://ow.ly/m599P

This Father's Day, I'm grateful for my three sons and for the memory of my own father. I'd like to wish all the fathers––biological or otherwise––a happy, safe and memorable day. If you're going spend the day outdoors with your loved ones as I plan to do, be sure to stay hydrated and to reapply your sunscreen regularly. And don't forget to have fun!

Rothaus Plastic Surgery
Dr. Rothaus discusses Angelina Jolie's Op-Ed and prophylactic mastectomies in his latest blog post. "Given the nature of this procedure, the cosmetic outcome will likely weigh heavily on the mind of most patients. Thus, in addition to consultations with medical and surgical oncologists, patients contemplating such surgery should also seek consultation with a plastic surgeon."
