Since she was little, Joanna Ng-Glazier, MD, FACS — plastic surgeon at Emerson Health Plastic Surgery — has enjoyed Halloween. She loves turning pumpkins into delicious seeds, pies, and especially creative jack-o'-lanterns. Here are some of her best tips to stay safe while carving a pumpkin.

  • Be very careful with the tools — even blunt tips can cause injury.

  • Use electric candles to prevent fire hazards.
