DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - April 28, 2014) - In the US alone, more than 11 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed in 2013, totaling more than 12 billion dollars. Knowing what questions to ask your plastic surgeon can mean the difference between becoming a 'surgery gone bad' statistic, and achieving a safe and successful outcome. In their new book Navigate Your Beauty: Smart and Safe Plastic Surgery Solutions (available on amazon.com April 28, 2014), co-authors Rod J. Rohrich, M.D. and Mary Crosland reveal the Three Magic Questions to ask so you can find the right surgeon and maximize your opportunity for a safe and successful outcome.
What makes these questions so magical? According to Dr. Rohrich, "Patients who ask these Three Magic Questions will quickly discern whether or not they are in the right hands. The answers to the questions reveal in an instant whether you are dealing with a trustworthy professional or someone who could do you far more harm than good." While most of the best plastic surgeons don't advertise, some of the ones who do may not even be plastic surgeons. "One's appearance and health are far too valuable to entrust to someone who may have acquired a certificate in a weekend course and is not qualified to perform plastic surgery," says Dr. Rohrich.
Written from the unique perspective of one of the world's top plastic surgeons and his patient, this book fills a void in the patient education and empowerment areas. This dual perspective is vital because as Crosland states, "The consumer needs to be fully informed and educated to stay out of harm's way. Today, there's a lack of empowering sources of education around plastic surgery procedures and results. That's why we wanted to create an indispensable guide to optimal outcomes in cosmetic procedures, whether surgical or non-surgical."
Navigate Your Beauty covers all aspects of procedures from skincare, fillers, facial plastic surgery, and tummy tucks to mommy makeovers, breast augmentations, liposuction, revision, and reconstructive plastic surgery. Choosing the right doctor for any of these procedures is vital. "Remember, just because a doctor is board certified doesn't mean you will get the best, or the right doctor, for what you need," says Dr. Rohrich. "Additionally, different doctors are trained in different areas. Patients should choose a top professional in the specific surgical procedure being considered."
The shared goal of Dr. Rohrich and Crosland is to help the consumer become smarter and reveal how to become a true self-navigator to your best health long term. The authors also present before and after photos showing the positive results of a good surgeon: www.navigateyourbeauty.com.
Rod J. Rohrich, M.D. is internationally renowned as one of most respected and top plastic surgeons in the world. He is Professor and Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Dr. Rohrich is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has clinical practices at UT Southwestern and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.

Mary Crosland is a talented businesswoman and an advocate for women's health and safety. She received a BBA from Southern Methodist University in Dallas. As a patient and informed consumer, Crosland felt the need for a guide to educate women on how to make safe and effective plastic surgery decisions, and she helped develop the Three Magic Questions to lead the consumer to safety.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
