Battery Assisted Bike

Battery assisted Bike Review

A few months ago, Graham Hill  asked me for some help in choosing an battery assisted bike. I wanted to help, but I knew that my knowledge was limited – there are so many models, with progress being made all the time in battery tech and power electronics – so I pointed him to someone who I knew was a real expert: Court Rye, the e-bike demigod behind ElectricBikeReview.com. But Graham’s question also made me realize that he certainly wasn’t the only one trying to figure out if an electric bicycle was right for him, what were the pros and cons, and if it did make sense, where to begin and which models to have a look at first.

This led to the interview below, where Court generously shares the e-bike wisdom that comes from having reviewed 300+ models since he started covering the space in 2012 (prolific guy!). My questions are in bold:

Why would anyone want an battery bike?

Well, battery bicycles offer the same great benefits as traditional bicycles including cost savings (no licensing or insurance required), improved health and connection with community.

The real advantage to ebikes in my view is efficiency in climbing hills or fighting the wind combined with better range. If you experience knee pain or exercise induced asthma for example, electric bikes can breath new life into the sport of cycling. They might convince your friend or significant other to join you on the trails more often or they might enable you to commute to work in extreme heat without perspiring so much. I’ve owned cars and mopeds before and neither felt as safe or refreshing as cycling along community paths, away from traffic.

battery assisted bikes remove many of the roadblocks and challenges that people face with traditional pedal-powered cycles but they aren’t perfect. They can be expensive, complex and heavy which is a real pain if the battery runs out half way.

What types of riding are e-bikes best for? What are they bad for?

Since the early days of electric bikes in the United States (starting in 1999 with the EV Global Motors Ebike from Lee Iacocca) frame styles and drive characteristics have really proliferated.

In addition to simple DIY kits there are also systems like the Ridekick Power Trailer now which add ebike performance in addition to storage utility! This system in particular is even easier than installing a kit and can be easily shared between family members and friends using regular bikes or recumbents as a platform.

Today it is possible to dive head first into electric bikes or dip your toe in for a little taste. In some towns you can even rent electric bike to get a better feel for them… Rocket Electrics in Austin Texas for example, offers foodie tours and also has a multi-day SXSW and F1 race week package for people who want to dodge traffic and get an up close view of the city. For the purest experience, purpose built ebikes are the way to go (bikes that were designed and sold as being electric, not converted later). They are lighter, tougher and more capable than ever. Whether you need a folding bike to stow in your loft or take on a plane, a tandem to rent and ride with your friend on vacation or a downhill bomber for free riding on mountain trails (no need for a chairlift!) there is definitely an ebike out there that’s fully capable.

blepharoplasty Upper and Lower

Upper and Lower blepharoplasty eyelid lift

What is eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)?

An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove skin and to add or remove fat from the upper and lower eyelids. The term “eyelid lift” is a misnomer because the eyelid is not truly lifted during surgery.

Upper blepharoplasty surgery uses incisions to allow for removal of skin and fat. A thin stitch is then used to bring the skin together to allow for a creation of an eyelid crease.

upper-and-lower-blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery can involve skin incisions directly below the lash line or an incision on the inside of the eyelid, called a transconjunctival approach. The transconjunctival approach allows for access to the eyelid without visible incisions, making this technique perfect for patients who need fat removed or added. This approach can be combined with laser resurfacing of the eyelid skin to reduce lines and wrinkles.
Why is eyelid surgery performed?

Upper eyelid excess skin and fat can create a heavy looking eyelid, aged appearance, puffiness, and sometimes block the upper field of vision. Upper blepharoplasty is performed to remove excess skin and fat and can improve the field of vision.

Double eyelid surgery, also called Asian eyelid surgery, is performed to create or enhance an upper eyelid crease. This type of surgery is performed on Asian people to “westernize” the appearance of the eyelid.

Lower blepharoplasty can be performed to remove excess skin and improve the contour of the eyelid by adding or removing fat. Sometimes tightening the eyelid is needed to correct sagging, while laser skin resurfacing can be used to improve wrinkles and skin texture.

blepharoplasty

How does one prepare for eyelid surgery?

Prior to eyelid surgery, the patient should have a detailed examination and discussion about blepharoplasty and potential risks and benefits associated with the procedure. The patient should follow the doctor’s preoperative instructions carefully and thoroughly review the postoperative instructions before the day of surgery. This will allow the patient to have any medications for pain relief or necessary items such a gel packs, artificial tears, and gauze at home prior to their return from surgery.

A physical may be required to have your medical doctor “clear” you for surgery if intravenous sedation or general anesthesia is used.
How long is the recovery time for eyelid surgery?

Patients usually have a short recovery time after blepharoplasty. Although bruising and swelling is usually worse on the day after surgery, they quickly begin to disappear. During the first 48 hours, the use of cool compresses can greatly reduce bruising and swelling around the eyes and face. Light activity such as walking will also help speed healing. Thin bandages are usually placed over the incision sites and removed in several days, while the stitches can remain in the skin for about a week. Sometimes self-absorbing stitches are used that do not require removal.

Most people return to normal activities after seven to 10 days following blepharoplasty. By two weeks after eyelid surgery, the majority of the bruising and swelling will resolve.

Rhinoplasty runs the gamut in what it can correct for the nose: options available include rebuilding or reshaping the nose to new innovative non-surgical techniques that offer a temporary new bridge.

A prominent feature on the face, the nose plays an integral part in bringing balance and form to the profile. As such, when patients are unhappy with their nose, it is something that cannot be easily dismissed. One of the first to make a splash in the plastic surgery sphere,Rhinoplasty continues to top the charts as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed. And while technique and technology has changed, ranging from complete reconstruction to non-surgical nose jobs, one thing is true – changing your nose has never been easier.

As seen on The Doctors, Publisher of Renew Magazine James Moorhead visited the set to have his nose reconstructed. After years of cocaine abuse, Moorhead’s nose had collapsed and needed to be rebuilt entirely. In an innovative new procedure, Dr. Jay Calvert uses bone from the 8th and 9th rib to create large dorsal reconstruction grafts to act as the bridge and support for the new nose. Dr. Calvert also uses cartilage grafts to form nostrils and when diced and combined with facsia, he uses it as “spackle for the bridge of the nose” to smooth out the newly reconstructed nose.

In less severe cases of rhinoplasty, in which patients may just be unhappy with the shape of their nose, they can expect a much less traumatic procedure that still yields big changes. “A lot of factors affect which surgical approach I’ll take and what kind of results the patient can expect,” describes
Los Angeles rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens, “This kind of variation is part of what makes rhinoplasties so complex, but a surgeon who takes a multifaceted approach to nose surgery can get results that look extremely natural.”

Specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery at his practice Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, one of the key trends that Dr. Stevens has seen is the rise in rhinoplasty that retains ethnic traits, instead of just one ideal nose. “With ethnic surgeries it’s particularly important to work with the patient’s natural beauty instead of against it; otherwise the results can look very contrived,” states Dr. Stevens.

Another option that is available to patients who are seeking modification to their noses is a non-surgical nose job in which facial fillers are used to temporarily change the shape of the nose. A pioneer in the field of non surgical nose jobs,Dr. Alexander Rivkin uses dermal fillers such as Radiesse or Restylane to smooth out angles, bumps or change the angle of the nose in approximately 15 minutes. While temporary, this option is good for patients who are not quite ready for surgery.
