Louisiana Talk

Only since 1916 has English been promoted as the official language of Louisiana. For the previous 200 years, French was spoken in much of the southern half of the state. Today, English is spoken by nearly all; however, it is not uncommon to hear conversations in French in the southern and rural parts of the state.

LA facelift - News update:
Some nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) that were previously licensed in the UK for abrupt quitting from smoking have recently been granted a new licensed indication called 'cut down to stop' or 'cut down to quit' (CDTQ). This is aimed at smokers who are unwilling or unable to stop smoking in the short term by allowing them to gradually cut down their smoking over an extended period while supported by NRT so that they may eventually be able and willing to try to quit altogether. This systematic review examines the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of NRT for CDTQ. No RCTs specifically addressing CDTQ were identified. Seven randomised placebo-controlled trials satisfied the inclusion criteria; six of these were industry sponsored. The review concluded from a meta-analysis of the findings of these studies that “NRT is an effective intervention in achieving sustained smoking abstinence for smokers who declare unwillingness or inability to attempt an abrupt quit.” The authors note that the 12-month sustained abstinence success rate in this population (approximately 5.3% NRT vs approx 2.6% placebo) was considerably less than that documented for an abrupt quit NRT regime in smokers willing to attempt an abrupt quit with NRT (approx 16% NRT vs. 10% placebo). They add that as most of the evidence of effectiveness of CDTQ in this report came from trials that required considerable patient–investigator contact, a similar mode of delivery in a real-world setting would probably be needed for CDTQ with NRT to generate similar abstinence rates for this population. Furthermore, CDTQ was considered highly cost-effective compared with a no quit attempt. More...

As we become older the gravity, sun exposure and everyday stress leave their marks on our faces. Wrinkles appear between the nose and the mouse, the skin becomes lose and drop below the jaw line and extra fat and skin accumulates around the neck. Facelift cannot stop the aging process but it can "turn back time" by removing extra skin and fat and straitening the muscles.

The ideal candidates for the procedure are patients with skin of the face and neck that started to drop but still has its elasticity.

The operation last from 3-7 hours (it can be longer if additional procedures are done). Some surgeons prefer to work on each side at a time and some do both sides simultaneously. The placement of the cuts and the magnitude of the operation depend on face structure and the correction required. The cut usually starts on the forehead goes in front of the ear and behind the ear lobe, additional cut below the chin is made to repair the neck. The surgeon separates the skin from the fat, removes the extra fat, strengthens the muscles and returns the fat pockets where they use to be. Afterwards he stretches the skin, cuts the extra and closes with sutures. A drainage tube usually left from both sides to draine secretions and blood and the face is bandaged for the first 24 hours.

Every operation has its risks although not common those include, bleeding, infection, damage to facial nerves (usually temporal), face asymmetry and delayed healing. Patients who smoke have higher rates of delayed healing.

There may be pain or uncomfortable felling after the recovery that can be treated with painkillers. A sensation of ants crawling usually disappears after weeks or a month after the surgery. Bandages are removed after a day or two and your face may look swollen. Red or pale with bleeding spots, you must remember that those will disappear after few days or weeks.

You can get out of bed after 24 hours but you should avoid any efforts for at least a week to help the healing process. You should avoid alcohol, hot tubs and saunas for at least a month. Most of the patients feel disappointed at first, their face look and feel strange but after a few weeks the scars will heal and you`ll be able to see the final results. Many patients return to work after 3 weeks. Sometimes you may need to use make up to blur the hemorrhage spots.
