Mesotherapy is a form of cosmetic surgery that aims to reduce subcutaneous fat cells as well as cellulite and thus competes with other methods such as liposuction, lifts and tucks. Of course the idea of being able to reduce fat in ‘spots’ and identify specific areas for reduction is one that is highly appealing to those unhappy with their current body shape, and the method is...

Facelift Recovery Tips

If you’ve bitten the bullet and gone for a facelift then you will have sacrificed a lot of money and comfort in order to change the way you look. You will likely have to deal with people’s altered perception of you, and generally this is a huge commitment to change.

Breast Enhancement Basics

B

Breast enhancement is of course the act of having your breasts augmented in order to appear larger and firmer. This means having them filled with some substance other than the fat that would normally be there naturally in order to both pad them and make them more buoyant and stretch the skin around them more tightly.

How to Prepare for Liposuction Surgery

H

Liposuction has become a popular way to get back the body that has been lost over the years. It is not suitable for people who have a lot of weight to lose and it would not normally be recommended that the whole body is treated. It is most effective on small areas that are proving difficult to improve by diet and exercise alone. It is unlikely that any two doctors will give you exactly the same...

Cosmetic Surgery – Pros, Cons and Techniques

Cankle Surgery Before and After

C

A ‘cankle’ is an unfortunate term used to describe those whose ankles have become hidden by a role of fat. The term is derived from the words ‘ankle’ and ‘calf’ with the two running into each other just as the calf and ankle seem to. This is often considered as an ‘unofficial’ measure of obesity, with people often deciding whether they or others are overweight based on the existence or absence of...

Chin Liposuction – Get Rid of Double Chin

C

Having a double chin is something that instantly makes you look overweight. While having an extra tire around your waist will be just as clear a sign of extra weight, it will still be easy to hide that under a baggy shirt or a coat. Fat on your face however is much harder to hide as people will look at your face (and in particular your mouth area) when you talk to them. At the same time, the face...
