Loss of skin suppleness, glow, and elasticity is a part of aging. However, the age at which it may occur varies from person to person.

Abdominoplasty: The Stomach is Often Considered a "Problem Area" for Many People

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....

Rejuvenation and Re-contouring of the Bust

Aging doesn’t just occur in the face. The breasts are often an area of concern for women as they start growing older. Normal aging can wreak havoc on the breasts, causing them to droop, sag, and lose firmness and lift. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also take a toll on the breasts, exacerbating the signs of aging, and can make the breasts lose volume and lift. This often results in women being unhappy with how their breasts look outside of a bra. In these cases, a breast lift (also known as a mastopexy) can be the perfect solution. Some women may not be interested in gaining more volume,...

The Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons to remove fat from certain areas of the body. The procedure is performed for cosmetic purposes and not for weight loss or other health reasons. In the early years of liposuction surgeries, the procedure was performed using a curettage scoop.
