The last post reminded me of this viral photo on the internet.

Interesting photo.  Most of the women have the same eyes, nose, cheeks and chin.  Since plastic surgery can't change the distance between the eyes and vertical distances between the eyes, nose and mouth, those seem to be the main differences between them.  The women who have distinctive eyes or noses, probably did not have plastic surgery in those areas.

I just read an article in the Chinese newspaper (World Journal) about Dr. James Miser, a pediatric oncologist who adopted 10 children. Many of his children had congenital problems which required many surgeries.

I Googled this old article about Dr. Miser lecturing about the health system. He discusses how hospital systems need to have a "no blame" culture where you accept that errors can occur in order to improve the hospital system.

It is very common in Asia for women to walk around carrying umbrellas to block the sun. In fact, they seem to avoid the sun as if it were rain. The beauty ideals in Asia are different.  

It is coveted to have very pale or white skin, as opposed to the tan look in western cultures. Interestingly these ideals come from the past. The “common” people had to work in the fields and subsequently were much more tan and had sun damage. The rich would stay indoors or be able to carefully avoid the sun and their skin would be of much better quality even into their 50-60’s. In western culture, office workers tend to stay indoors and not have much time for vacation. The rich tend to go on vacations in sunny destinations and return home with nice tans.

It seems that in both cultures the original reason for coveting pale skin or tan skin is associated with social status.

Our patients love their obagi products. We hope this doesn't affect their pricing and distribution.
