Free Flu Shots in Central Florida!

Centra Care Flu Fighters

Flu Season is upon us again, and for the 12th year in a row, Centra Care, Florida Hospital Urgent Care and Get Healthy Florida are making sure you and your family are protected. This year, Centra Care is offering six different opportunities to get your flu shot, fast and free!

Everyone 6-months and older can get a free flu shot at any one of the scheduled Fast & Free Flu Shot clinics. Because last year’s flu season impacted younger adults in particular, Centra Care physicians want to remind Central Floridians that the single best protection against the flu is the flu shot, even for healthy children and adults. And since the flu virus changes every year, you need a new vaccination each year.

Florida Hospital Breaks Ground on New Winter Garden Campus

With Horizon West waking back up and Winter Garden becoming one of Central Florida’s most popular hot spots the area was in desperate need for a new medical facility.  Florida Hospital broke ground on its new $65 million Winter Garden facility on in September.  The new three-story, 75,000 sq ft facility is slated to open Winter 2014, well the first floor of it.  That floor will feature an emergency department and outpatient imaging.  The two additional floors, which are slated to open in 2015, will feature an outpatient surgery centers, for medical emergencies, although if you’re looking more of a cosmetic surgery as a body liposuctions there are several quality options online. You can also get in touch with an expert rhinoplasty specialist in Miami.

Many people today are fed up with the way their bodies look and want to do something about it. Dieting and exercise are great ways to change the look of their bodies but often times fatty areas remain after all their hard work! Plastic surgery lipo (liposuction) is a way to get rid of this resistant fat and give their bodies a smoother and more fit appearance. If you are one of these people, liposuction may be the answer to your prayers. It removes all of those unsightly fatty deposits in areas where there is a minimal amount of excess skin. It can be performed on your stomach, buttocks, thighs, calves, hips, breasts and just about anywhere else on your body. Of course, as with any surgery there are risks involved. However, even with the risks, you will be overjoyed by the results you see in just a few months after your surgery is completed. The results you get will last a long time but can be affected by such things as the aging process, weight gain and other components of your lifestyle. Here you can read about lipo procedure in my area. Seeing a qualified plastic surgeon is your first step on your liposuction journey. He or she will meet with you to find out just exactly what your expectations are. You may have photos taken that can be used for comparison purposes later on. Your surgeon will evaluate your medical condition, especially the elasticity of your skin. He or she will also check your blood pressure, heart rate and so on. You will be informed of all the risks that are involved with liposuction and what you can do to decrease the chance of any problems occurring.

Liposuction is done by a plastic surgeon who inserts a hollow metal tube called a cannula through the fatty tissue. The tube is attached to a pump and excess fat is vacuumed out. The cannula may fluctuate back and forth during the process by the use of a small motor that is sometimes attached to it. The surgery itself may take 2 – 4 hours. Once your plastic surgery lipo is finished, you will be taken to the recovery room. In a few hours you will be sent home to rest for a few days. You will be given advice on the medications you can take and what to do about swelling and bruising. Within ten days or so you should be able to back to your regular routine – fat free and happier than ever!

If you have stubborn fat pockets which refuse to leave and resist all your efforts at dieting and exercising, those pockets of fat cannot stand in the way of Smart Lipo, or liposuction. Now popularly done at Smart Lipo in London and Harley Street clinics, Smart Lipo has become a household word for satisfied patients who have regained their social lives and self confidence after treatment.

Smart Lipo or laser liposuction can be done in various parts of your body, particularly those areas you want to show off by wearing sexy clothes such as upper and lower abdomen, chest for men, inner and outer thighs, neck and jaw line, back of the arms and the lower back, also known as love handles. You do not need to stay overnight at the hospital for this procedure. It only requires local anesthesia, and within one or two days, you can return to work and resume your normal life. The procedure includes having a skilled botonic doctor insert a fibre optic under the skin. The optic fibre delivers energy, melts and breaks down your fat cells. Only the fat cells will be destroyed but all your healthy cells will be left intact.

Compared to traditional liposuction, laser liposuction is superior in safety, recovery time, level of discomfort, bruising, scarring and in cost. Because Smart lipo does not require a general anesthesia, you will have to pay lesser since you can go home immediately, unlike traditional procedure where you will have to stay at the hospital and pay for the room and other charges. With this treatment, no scars are seen because the fibre optic used is only 1mm in diameter as compared to the 3mm cannula used when you undergo traditional liposuction procedures. The introduction of laser liposuction has made it possible for a patient to see detailed results and faster recovery time.

“We are very excited to be a part of this rapidly growing community of Winter Garden,” said Florida Hospital President and CEO Lars Houmann.  “We want to strengthen our presence in this community as a trusted healthcare partner that brings greater access to care close to home.” Aside from healthcare, plastic surgery clinics are also available. One of it is by Andres Bustillo, a well known Miami facial plastic surgeon.

This building is just the first phase of the new west Orange medical campus, located across the street from Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves.  The next phase will feature a 200-bed, seven-story community hospital, though no timeline for that phase has been set.

“We are so pleased that Florida Hospital has chosen Winter Garden as the site for their newest facility,” said Winter Garden Mayor John Rees.  “This health campus will bring superior, high-paying jobs to our community and will make Winter Garden more attractive as a place that others will want to live, work and play.”

Amanda Maggard, assistant vice president of west Orange development for Florida Hospital, was also announced as the new head for Winter Garden health campus.
