Spirited Women Awards

I was so honored to host the Spirited Women awards yesterday at The Four Seasons. What inspiration the award winners provided to us, spending their valuable and limited time giving back to the community. Alice Ann Finnerty from The Turnover Shoppe in Hamden is a wonderful woman, the premier award winner, and The Caroline Center who benefitted from money raised from the event is a wonderful cause worth investigating!

Dr. Shermak Interview in Baltimore Business Journal


    What’s it like to be a plastic surgeon?
    It’s very exciting. In Judaism, there’s something called a mitzvah. It’s a good deed. I feel like I get to do at least one mitzvah per day. In other careers, you don’t get that opportunity.

    How do people react to your profession?
    When I do meet people, I do get a lot of questions. It’s always ethically tricky when someone asks you for advice at a party.

    What kind of questions?
    People ask about all types of treatments, surgical procedures. People are really interested and want good information.”

Dr. Shermak in Baltimore Jewish Times – “Unmasking Surprising Jewish Views On Plastic Surgery”


    “Overall, says Dr. Michele Shermak, also of Baltimore Plastic Surgery, she doesn’t see much difference between the desires of her Jewish patients and others. ‘If anything, they may be a bit less trendy. For example, right now there’s the Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez trend for big bottoms, and most of my Jewish clients won’t ask for that’…

    Silverman is adamant that her decision to have surgery was the right one, and she couldn’t have been happier with her surgeon, Dr. Shermak. In fact, she is very open about the procedures she has had. “I had three beautiful, healthy 9-pound babies. No matter what I did,” she says, “I could not get my body back. It’s not my fault; things happen!” A Pikesville native, Shermak says her interest in plastic surgery began with a film she watched in a social studies class at Pikesville High School.”

Dr. Shermak in MedPage Today – “Breast Reduction Riskier After 50″


    “Given those factors, hormones could be one explanation for poorer breast reduction outcomes at older ages, the researchers noted.

    ‘In the laboratory, topical estrogen has been found to optimize wound healing, a process thought to be related to estrogen’s stimulation of growth factors,’ Shermak’s group explained.

    ‘Close questioning about factors that may cause hormonal deficiency such as history of hysterectomy/oophorectomy should be addressed, and hormone replacement therapy may be worth considering in this group of patients,’ they suggested in the paper.

    Other explanations could be the effect of aging on the skin — atrophy, progressive loss of function, increased vulnerability to the environment, and decreased homeostatic capability — as well as on other processes needed for wound healing, such as cell proliferation and migration.”

Dr. Shermak in The Baltimore Sun


    “…A woman was arrested in Miami recently after allegedly injecting tire repair adhesives in a similar procedure. Earlier this year, a British woman died after an improper procedure in a Philadelphia hotel room, and a New York City woman was arrested on charges that she performed illegal breast and buttocks-enhancement procedures in her home, according to news reports.

    ‘Who would imagine someone would let someone else inject them with something from Home Depot? It’s insane,’ said Dr. Michele Shermak, a Lutherville plastic surgeon and spokeswoman for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which has launched a campaign to educate the public on the perils on plastic surgery performed by the untrained.

    ‘It’s horrible on so many levels,’ she said. ‘You’re going to have a toxic reaction.’…”
