Let’s Help Helping Hands Together: Annual Toiletry Drive

It’s that time of year again. As the holidays rapidly approach, we’re thankful for so many things: great clients, our amazing team of specialists, and so much more. As we think about what we’re so grateful for, it’s easy to forget that not everyone around us is so fortunate. That’s why we’re ready to help give back to the community in any way possible. This year, Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery invites you to join our toiletry drive.

Throughout November, we’re collecting donations for the local organization Helping Hands. Much-needed items include soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and other hygiene-related items. Donations can be dropped off Monday thru Thursday between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm and Friday, 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.

We want to give you the opportunity to better yourself by helping those in need. Every patient who drops off donations this November will receive a $20 gift certificate good towards any service or product. All donations will be forwarded to Helping Hands. Any help you can give is appreciated.

At Accent, we’re excited to team up with Helping Hands this year. Helping Hands is a local charity organization founded by the United Methodist Church. They’re responsible for providing help to the homeless within our community. Helping Hands organizes collections for food, clothing, household, and hygiene items all year long.

Dr. Mark Craig and Dianne are involved with and have sat on multiple charity boards whenever possible. When not performing surgery, Dr. Craig regularly participates in the following civic activities and more; Boy Scout Troop 12, BancorpSouth, North MS Boys and Girls Club, and is an active member of the Tupelo United Methodist Church.

We’re committed to helping patients better themselves while also doing our part for the community around us. Aside from simply collecting items, Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery will be making a significant donation of our own. We will happily accept the smallest donations, but can also help facilitate larger contributions to the Helping Hands organization.

Ready to do your part? Please, join us in making a difference this November. Call Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery today at (662) 377-6290 if you have any questions about what else you can do for the Helping Hands Ministry.

Benefits of Nectifirm® and Nectifirm® ADVANCED

Aging doesn’t just happen to one area of our body at a time. So, why aren’t there more products designed to treat specific areas? While there are many creams, serums, and lotions aimed at providing total skin rejuvenation on the face, the neck often gets forgotten. The skin on our neck and décolletage is thinner and more susceptible to gravity’s daily pull than the skin on our face making these products less effective. Enter Nectifirm®.

Can’t Stop Sweating? Here’s Your Answer

Khrom-Blog-ImageCan’t Stop Sweating? Here’s Your Answer

Summer may almost be over – but if you can’t stop sweating no matter what time of year it might be, you might be desperate for answers.

Excessive sweating – also known as hyperhidrosis – is caused by overactive sweat glands that don’t respond normally to your body’s attempts to regulate heat via sweating.  Your body uses sweating as a way to control its internal temperature, which helps keep your organs healthy and happy.  With excessive sweating, your sweat glands are misinterpreting your body’s attempts to regulate your core temperature.

The end result could be excessive sweating in your underarms, hands, feet, and other body parts.  Those who suffer from hyperhidrosis may feel embarrassed by their condition and avoid normal social interactions.

Fortunately, there’s a treatment out there that can help put a stop to excessive sweating – and it isn’t found in a pharmacy or in the anti-perspirant aisle.

The answer can be found at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, Mississippi – and that answer is Botox.

Surprised?  Don’t be.  While Botox is often regarded as one of the most popular anti-wrinkle treatments on the market, the FDA recently approved it as a treatment for excessive sweating.  Botox blocks the abnormal messages being sent to your body’s sweat glands, which effectively turns off the glands’ ability to sweat.

The end result is dry skin that’s free from embarrassing sweat!

Botox is injected directly into the skin of the treatment area.  The procedure is done in-office, and doesn’t take very long to perform.  Your health insurance may even cover the cost of your Botox treatments; be sure to call your policy holder to ask about your coverage.

Clinical studies have shown cessation of sweating from six to seven months after treatment.  Like with any treatment, results may vary.

If you’re interested in putting an end to those embarrassing sweat stains – not to mention save on your dry cleaning bill! – it’s time to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Craig at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, MS today.

Discover Liposuction On an Outpatient Basis

Khrom-Blog-ImageWhen you think of liposuction, are you concerned you will endure a long recovery period?

Liposuction at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, MS (North Mississippi), board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Craig preforms liposuction as an outpatient surgery. That means patients can contour their trouble spots, all without being admitted to a hospital or spending a significant number of weeks in recovery.

Dr. Craig uses a tumescent fluid, which contains lidocaine and epinephrine to help with bruising and pain control. Patients can expect the same results from traditional liposuction, without encountering the same amount of swelling or bruising.

Light activities and exercise can be resumed in the first week after the operation; at your post-operative appointment, the sutures will be removed.  However, Dr. Craig usually recommends that clients refrain from heavy physical activities (such as running or aerobics) for at least two weeks. Most clients can return to work in a couple of days; those with manual labor jobs should wait at least a week before resuming work.

Patients who undergo liposuction for more than one treatment area should expect recovery to take longer.
