"I had the mini-face lift," 48 year old Judy Gring tells. "I had a tummy tuck and some liposuction."
Just 10 days later, Gring says her decision to go under the knife started with uncertain times. "There's been a lot going on around the world," she tells. "And in life in general and when I get stressed--I have a tendency to go to the kitchen--I eat."
While cosmetic surgery won't solve situations outside of her home...it gives her a sense of well being, "I will definitely leave her today and the following weeks feeling like I have got better future, control."
Judy's Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. James Motlagh says the theory is a good one, " You don't have control over the world and the circumstances but you certainly have control over your own destiny."
Like recent baby booms that hit after 9-11... people reevaluate their lives, and may look to make major change--starting with themselves. That's why business is booming at Woodcreek Athletic Club. Folks are finding time for the important things in life--like family and fitness says Dianne Gordon, "Its not as easy to say, 'Hey, I'll put it off,' he says. "I think people seem to have a little bit stronger focus. They know what they should do, what they need to do."
