Around the mouth skin is adherent… Read the rest

Loose, hanging, or folding skin on or around the neck is caused by repeatedly moving the head, left, right, up, or down.

What is a reverse tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)? Is it plastic surgery for someone who had second thoughts after their tummy tuck?

With the current wave of “Alice in Wonderland” mania, a recent email from a friend reminded me of a scene in that classic book. In that scene, Alice is talking to the caterpillar and he keeps asking her, “who are you?” This reminder, in my mind, led to my impressions of a current phenomenon I’ve been seeing and reading about lately regarding the business of plastic surgery. It occurred to me that it seemed apropos to ask any… Read the rest
There seems to be a trend of late, judging by what is out on the Web and in advertising, to promote plastic surgery procedures under local anesthesia… only… nothing else… stone cold sober.

A frequent problem area for many women is the inner thigh. This is because the inner thigh area is a common place for fat accumulation or a tendency for excessive loose skin, especially for women who naturally carry more weight in the hips, buttocks and thigh areas.
