Art of Sculpting

By: Lisette Hilton
Date: December 2010

Liposuction removes the fat, but the right surgeon sculpts your body beautiful While fashion trends come and go, one thing that’s always in demand? Curves—when they’re in all the right places, of course. But diet and exercise alone don’t always deliver the shapely silhouette you want. Sound familiar? In the right hands, a simple tool and the right technique can create your custom contours.

At age 50, Pat Rodgers of Tampa, Fla., looks in the mirror and likes what she sees. But it wasn’t always that way. And it didn’t come easy. (Surprise, surprise.)

Just like so many of us, Pat woke up one morning and realized she’d gone from hourglass to bell-shaped and had some work to do. Good old-fashioned exercise gave her a start, but for the diet and exercise-resistant parts of her body, she turned to Thomas Y. Su, MD, a cosmetic surgeon in Tampa, who specializes in liposuction.

“He made my body look beautiful,” Pat says. “I still have weight to lose on my own. [But liposuction] gave me a boost and addressed areas that are the tough areas.”

Luisa Porrata, RN, MPH, CCAT, QTTT, comes from a family of healers. Her relatives’ use of herbs and massage were part of the culture in their native Puerto Rico.
“My aunt, a midwife in the hills of her small town, would do massages after births and administer herbal teas to calm the mother into a gentle sleep,” she says. “As a nurse, I planned early in my education to incorporate holistic healing modalities as part of my plan of care for clients.”
Porrata, an adjunct professor at Hostos Community College in New York City, is among a growing number of nurses who are using holistic healing methods, says Elizabeth Ann Manhart Barrett, RN-BC, LMHC, QTTP, PhD, FAAN, who is in private practice in New York City and professor emerita at Hunter College of the City University of New York. More people are accepting of holistic healing practices today because there is a growing body of literature, as well as more educational offerings on the topic, she says.

For nurses in New York state, Nov. 1 represented a victory for on-the-job safety. It was the day that the Violence Against Nurses law took effect, making it a felony to assault an on-duty RN or LPN.

For many nurses, including those in home health, dealing with violent or abusive patients and caregivers was considered part of their plight. The New York State Senate passed the legislation in January, noting that, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, nearly 500,000 nurses each year become victims of violent crimes in the workplace. Most commonly reported acts of violence include spitting, biting, hitting and shoving.
