Abdominoplasty: The Stomach is Often Considered a "Problem Area" for Many People
07 January 2020
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is cosmetic surgery to improve the shape of the tummy area (abdomen). It can involve removing excess loose skin, fat and stretch marks and tightening the abdominal muscles. The aim is to remove excess skin on the tummy that cannot be removed through exercise – for example, excess skin caused by pregnancy or losing a lot of weight. It’s not a quick fix for losing weight as the procedure is usually only recommended for people with a healthy body mass index (BMI). After pregnancy or weight loss, excess skin and fat can distort the appearance of the abdomen....Read more

As you get older, your skin’s elasticity decreases, leading to sagging skin. You also develop smile and laugh lines around your nose and mouth.

Understanding sleep cycles can also point towards a more accurate diagnosis of the sleep problem. Most infants usually have no sleep pathology, but because of the context in which people are tryin...Read more
