What’s one trend that is defining plastic surgery today?
“The increasing use of fat to improve the contour of the face, breasts and body. Fat has been used to add volume to certain areas for years, and its many uses continue to evolve. The whole process is performed through a few small incisions.”

Since 1936, members of lifeguard services throughout Southern California have gathered at sunset for the Judge Irving Taplin Medley Relay. Under special lights near the Hermosa Beach Pier, these friendly competitors test their endurance in a race that consists of two runners, four swimmers, four paddlers, one surf ski paddler and four two-person dories. The result: 40-minutes of pure adrenaline and sustained excitement … pushing even the fittest lifeguard to his or her physical limits. This year, a team from Victoria, Australia competed against our lifeguards. the winning team, LA County Central Section “A,” got the honor of holding the “Taplin Bell” perpetual trophy until the following year’s race.
