Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

Dude, when you get off the bike, put on your fig leaf.

Seattle Plastic Surgeon and mother of a 14 year old daughter implores the naked cyclist at the Fremont Summer Solstice Fair to put a fig leaf on it. 

blog fremont fairI have been attending the Fremont Summer Solstice Fair for many years.  I live just a few  blocks away from Fremont, the self designated “Center of the Universe”.  The fair is a fun and funky and freaky celebration of Seattle’s short but wonderful summer and just about anything goes.  But this year, either I’m getting old and cranky or maybe the anything goes has gone too far.

Saturday’s parade has for years included a posse of nude cyclists who seem to appear from nowhere, weave through the parade and crowds and then disappear.  And we all cheer for their naughtiness.   But this year, after the parade, many of the cyclists just hung out, really hung out with nary a loin cloth.  I felt like I was in a urology clinic.  My daughter was having a hard time knowing where to look because everywhere she looked, there was another one.

So dudes, next year make sure you look for me.  I will be the middle aged lady handing out free fig leaves for those of you who forgot yours.

Thanks for reading!  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
