However, todays face-</p><p>lift surgery has come a long way in subtlety and </p><p>customization. the procedure can be performed </p><p>with iv sedation instead of general anesthesia.</p><p>at an average age of 52, many patients </p><p>have received a minor procedure such as BotoX </p><p>or fillers in the past and are ready to move up to </p><p>the next level. Because they have maintained a </p><p>youthful appearance, the change after a facelift </p><p>is much less dramatic. friends often comment </p><p>that they look more rested, but cant identify </p><p>what is different.</p><p>fully accredited surgery centers, such as dr. </p><p>Joe niamtus, meet the same standards of a hos-</p><p>pital, but with added privacy and convenience. </p><p>the procedure only takes about two hours, al-</p><p>lowing the patient to return home the same </p><p>day. depending on the patient and procedure, </p><p>the recovery time can be as fast as two weeks. </p><p>Many make use of the downtime and undergo </p><p>multiple treatments at the same surgical ap-</p><p>pointmentsuch as a facelift, eyelid tuck, brow </p><p>lift, and laser skin resurfacing.</p><p>When choosing a facelift surgeon, experi-</p><p>ence is critical. dr. Joe niamtu has performed </p><p>nearly 1,000 facelifts and treated patients from </p><p>around the globe. even after performing this </p><p>many procedures, says dr. niamtu, seeing </p><p>the happiness and renewed confidence that is </p><p>brought to the patient never gets old. nJoe Niamtu, iii, D.M.D., Cosmetic facial surgeon</p><p>934-faCe (3223) | lovethatface.com</p><p>s P o n s o r e d M e s s a g e</p><p>a New eraof Cosmetic surgery</p><p>Actual patient of Dr. Niamtu</p><p>WithAngela CarpenterThursdays6:00 PM</p><p>At Studio D Yoga1811 Huguenot Rdwww.ShapeShifterscva.com804-814-7099</p><p>RichmondnavigatoR.com | January / February 2013 9January / February 2013 | RichmondnavigatoR.com</p></li><li><p>happy new Year, chesterfield county Resident!Lets Stay in touch in 2013</p><p>Don J. Kappel, Director of Public Affairs, Chesterfield County, Virginia</p><p>First Choice is a bi-monthly information column provided for the citizens of Chesterfield County</p><p>Youve resolved to diet and exercise more. thats good, be-cause nothing is more important than taking care of your health and your familys health. thats why this year you should make one more resolutionto stay in touch with your </p><p>county government in 2013.</p><p>Why? on a day-to-day basis, local government impacts your </p><p>life more than does the federal or state government. things like po-</p><p>lice, fire and emergency medical services, building code and zon-</p><p>ing enforcement, animal control, restaurant inspections, libraries, </p><p>parks and recreation, economic development and more affect your </p><p>personal safety, health, employment opportunities, emotional and </p><p>financial well being and overall quality of life. these all are county </p><p>programs and services.</p><p>staying in touch is easy to do. you can stay aware of whats </p><p>happening where you live by visiting the countys website at http://</p><p>www.chesterfield.gov, by listening to the countys public-informa-</p><p>tion radio network at 1630 aM in your vehicle, or by visiting us at </p><p>www.facebook.com/Chesterfieldva</p><p> you also can subscribe to Currents, the countys quarterly e-</p><p>newsletter, at www.chesterfield.gov/currents.</p><p> youll receive regular updates on road projects, new commer-</p><p>cial and residential development, scheduled public meetings and </p><p>much more.</p><p>all public meetings of the Board of supervisors, Planning Com-</p><p>mission and other county bodies are advertised by local media out-</p><p>lets. We hope to see you if your schedule permits. otherwise, you </p><p>can watch Board of supervisors or Planning Commission meetings </p><p>live, or see the archived meetings, by visiting the chesterfield.gov </p><p>website and clicking on the CCtv tab. Comcast and verizon also </p><p>broadcast the meetings. the county also sends information to the </p><p>media almost daily about events, programs and services.</p><p>We know that communications need to be two-way to be ef-</p><p>fective, and your feedback is crucial to the countys decision-mak-</p><p>ing process. you can provide your input by contacting any county </p><p>department, or the countys elected leaders or administration. all of </p><p>the contact information is on the chesterfield.gov website, or you </p><p>can call the county switchboard at (804) 748-1000 to be connected </p><p>with any department or elected official.</p><p>Parents: visit this Positive Parenting link for april 11, 2013, re-</p><p>gional kindergarten registration details, and for information about </p><p>the virginia star Quality initiative which you should know about in </p><p>this new year regarding early care and education programs (www.</p><p>chesterfield.gov/parenting).</p><p>remember, lets stay in touch! and good luck with the diet and </p><p>exercise! n</p><p>Women as investors are You Ready?</p><p>I have had the pleasure of guiding many families toward achieving financial freedom, and while working with them i have observed something of a female financial paradox: an overwhelming per-centage of women identify themselves as the chief bill-payer and shop-</p><p>per for the household, yet lag behind the men in actions crucial to man-</p><p>aging wealth and gaining financial independence.</p><p>in years past it wasnt uncommon for the husband to be totally in </p><p>charge of investing for retirement. in fact, many times only the husband </p><p>came for our initial interview, saying my wife isnt interested. Consider, </p><p>however, some facts reported in Newsweek: 27% of women out-earn </p><p>their husbands, own 89% of all us bank accounts, control 48% of es-</p><p>tates worth more than $5 million, and will inherit 70% of the $41 trillion </p><p>in wealth transfers expected over the next 40 years. </p><p>according to Newsmax Magazine, 50% of all marriages end in di-</p><p>vorce and women outlive men by 5-7 years. in fact, the average age at </p><p>which women become widowed is 56. all things considered, 90% of </p><p>women will be solely responsible for their own finances at some point </p><p>in their lives. so it makes much more sense to get involved early in the </p><p>process rather than being thrust into it suddenly by death or divorce.</p><p>thats why weve made it mandatory for wives to accompany their </p><p>husbands at every stage of an engagement with us. additionally, i have </p><p>a very bright and talented woman partner who works hand-in-hand </p><p>with me taking care of all our clients needs. </p><p>in my opinion, women are more amenable to outsourcing financial </p><p>planning and investment management, but they want to be educated </p><p>and to trust their advisor. education helps us make better informed de-</p><p>cisions. it empowers us. Weve also learned that women make better </p><p>investment decisions than men. Women tend to research more and are </p><p>infinitely more patient. the job at hand is more daunting than ever, but </p><p>together we can plan for your future. n</p><p>keeP tHe faitH. faitH is tHe sPirit.Written by g.
