Answers with Dr. Randal Haworth?

You've been quoted saying, "My philosophy is that in plastic surgery there are doctors who have become artists and artists who have become doctors. I count myself among the latter." Why do you consider yourself an artist first?

Both visual artists and surgeons have superb hand-eye coordination with the vision - both literally in the sense of seeing and figuratively in the sense of envisioning an end result - providing the navigation. Even with my extensive experience and knowledge of anatomy as guides, my first concern is to deliver an aesthetically pleasing, natural looking result. Sometimes, achieving this is a matter of instinct rather than any hard and fast rules. I have been drawing and painting since I was a child and self-identified as an artist early on; I didn't commit myself to being a physician until I was 20 years old with the final goal of becoming a plastic surgeon in the end.

What is the fastest and easiest way to get a big butt?

How to Get a Big ButtSo, here's what's worked for millions that I've seen: sit on it a lot and eat a whole bunch of fattening food. You will certainly have a big behind before you know it! This is terrible advice when it comes to your health, but it is a fast and easy way to get what you are looking for.

Here are more opinions and answers from other contributors:

  • Don't eat a bunch of junk because it's not healthy and depending on whether you're male or female you could end up with cellulite. I strongly recommend taking cycling classes and setting the resistance to high (about an 8.) while standing and pedalling. Do this at least twice a week and you're booty will be to die for (awesome muscle definition)! If that's too hard use the butt blaster machine, do 3 sets, 30 reps of 30 lbs or more (whatever you can handle).
  • The people with the best butts are volleyball players, soccer players, and some are just born with natural booty. Just do high energy leg working sports- your body automatically puts energy where you need it. Fat goes to that area to feed the growing muscle therefore your butt will be larger.
  • You are either born with one or you're not.
  • Whoever told you that eating a lot of foods will help get you thick is WRONG. Eating junk foods and candy will only help in putting on sloppy weight. It will make you FAT, NOT THICK. Remember that. The types of foods you should be eating if your trying to gain the right weight is proteins, so make an effort to put more proteins in your diet. You can eat good carbs (like wheat bread, brown rice) and not the bad stuff (potatoes, white rice). Also, eat more calories than you normally burn and keep cardio excercise to like 2 times weekly. A bigger butt can only be gained through exercise if you were not born with one to begin with. Weight traning/lifting is the most IMPORTANT step. To gain a bigger backside, you need to lift weights. And not light weights, I'm talking about heavy. In order to make muscles grow you must lift heavy. I suggest starting with light weights at first though so you won't stress or pull a muscle. Get accustomed to light weights before working with a heavier set. If your lifting weights and you don't feel a good burn in your butt after 15 or so repetitions than it's time to use heavier weights. Lifting heavier weights will shock the muscles and make them grow bigger. If you use light weights, it will only shape and tone and not make the muscles bigger. Also, after sometime you'll need to get heavier weights so that the muscles can continue to grow. If your using the same weight your muscle will adjust to it and therefore not allowing it to grow any bigger.
A list of researched and tried possible ways

The NO NO NO ------

HORMONES You can end up with a full hormonal imbalance which will shorten your life and may destroy your shape forever. Dangerous stuff.

CHICKEN PILLS What fattens a chicken will most certainly don't give you shape. Secondary effects can be desvastating in the bowels and liver.

WEIGHT GAIN PILLS (Ectoplan, etc) Weight (fat) goes to where is used to go and not to where you need it,it is how the body works. You may end up with flaccidity or celullites that will be one problem more instead of a solution. Many reports confirm the negative results.

STRONG PHYTOESTROGENS Pueraria and so, are HORMONES in spite of what they want to make you believe. In the body they fight for the receptors of estrogens as much as the animal hormones do. If taken without careful supervision may produce you hormonal imbalance, shorten your life and destroy your shape forever. If taken under supervision may seem to help at the beginning but soon your body enters in imbalance. People raised in Asia can manage better these phytoestrogens because they grow up with phytoestrogens in their diet, but for all other people are a risky business. Even in Japan or Thailand, the strong phytoestrogens are taken under careful supervision and their secondary effects controlled with other herbs for balance.

FEMIMORE or MEDI-COSMETICALS FROM INDIVIDUAL OR SELLERS OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL LABORATORY Lots of reports on useless refills of original packages and plain fake pills. Some reported the original boxes refilled with something that produced bad secondary effects similar to estrogen excess. DON'T BUY FROM PRIVATE OR NON AUTHORIZED SELLERS you may be risking your health.

FLUID SILICONE OR OILS Injectable fillers are sold in Mexico and underground in USA as approved fillers in other countries. Many are just fluid silicone or oils. The least you will get is scammed, all "gains" will disappear soon enough and depending on the substance you may get CANCER. Ask yourself, is it worth the risk?

The NOT YET ACERTAIN -----------

FISH OIL As any oil, its fat nutrients may increase size a bit until reabsorbed by the body (could take from two weeks to six months) This when applied externally. - Internally has no proven effects more than weight gain. Risks: can steal Vit E from the body.

COLLAGEN CREAMS Can amke the area more supple and because of betyter irrigation, elasticity and circulation, the area will develope better. These creams will work as allies to other methods, on its own collagen will not bring large changes (but minor yeas)

FEMINISSIMA - This spanish pill is not yet in the market but promises the same effects than Femimore only that in smaller scale with a price much smaller.(Kind of small sister to Femimore it seems)

GLUTEUS MAXIMUS A good ebook with good exercises but not enough on its own

OTHER E-BOOKS Many e-books under different names are sold in the Net, most have just the same information contained in the e-book Gluteus Maximus combined with the information on the e-book that comes with Femimore as a free gift.

CONCHEVITA Southamerican pill that was sold but no longer exists. Could not find anyone who bought it or any traces of it in the Net.

RELACOR Just weight change, no shape. Many reported flaccidity as result. Many reported insomnia and other problems.

FILLERS Not yet enough developed for injecting in large areas. Are currently offered in some clinics but the general opinion of the best surgeons is that we must wait for having a filler that can be successfully injected in large areas without risks.

NEGATIVE BIOTENSION ENHANCER (NBE) Sold in Asia and some countries in EU. It is a kind of cup which adapts to the glute and "sucks" it with negative pressure producing what is called negative biotension in the muscles and fat tissues. It is proven that negative biotension stimulates tissue growth. Not enough reports on results yet but seems very promissing. Note: Some cheap copies are beginning to be sold with a hand pump, these are useless. Negative Biotension needs a computarized unit for feedback from the treated area.

The YES YES YES -----

EXERCISE 1- Advantages Cheap - Available everywhere - Can be targeted at selected areas

2- Disadvantages MUST be well planned by a pro or at least deep self-research. Otherwise we end up too muscular or disproportionate. Provides ONLY muscle and could burn fats that are needed for curves

3- Recommendations Get a personal trainer or pro advise and tell exactly what you want to achieve. Don't just ask the guy at the gym unless he is professionally graduated. If you plan it yourself, get the following books:

- Women's Strength Training Anatomy (Frederic Delavier) - Fit for your shape (Matt Roberts) - The body sculting bible for women (James Villepigue)

Do not overdue it, more than 45 minutes exercise continuosly can be negative, producing excess Cortisol, a hormone with great importance in how we assimilate fats. Do not train every day, the muscle only developes with alternate periods of exercise-rest.

Weight training sculpts you, Pilates gives position, dance (best are latin dances) put your body to burn the necessary excesses and work the curves, skating principally iceskatting shape glutes and hips best.

DIET

1- Advantages Simple

2- Disadvantages By itself is not great help (However can be a very powerful ally of other methods multiplying their results)

3- Recommendations Do not follow a "made for all" diet. You are unique and your diet for shaping must be specifically designed for you. Low GI is a must Small snacks each 3 hours work better than three or two large meals. (Keep the body building the good fats and muscles and burning the bad fats) Supplements as Vit C, Magnesium, Lecithin and B complex are a must. Protein from nuts and cheese are far better in shaping than from animal flesh. Animal flesh counteracts shaping because of its limited value. The book 'The hourglass effect' (very difficult to find) is the best there is (do not mistake with some e-book called the hourglass figure or something similar that has been reported at many forums as useless and has nothing to do with the real book). Was published in a short edition and sold out fast. You can backorder and reserve a copy at orders@logos-est.net.

FEMIMORE

1.- Advantages The only pills proven to work (All the doubts and fuzz in many forums are created by those who sell other alternatives or those who have not the money for affording it) You can combine these products to suit your specific needed areas Count with the experience of a Medical Division Many have reported that to take intensive (double dosage) increases results and that combining with other of their treatments also enhances results.

2.- Disadvantages Price You must commit one year to it (However is very much worth it) Are not magic pills, you must follow at least basical diet advice and basic exercise advice

3.- Recommendations Choose one or two products but as soon as you receive the first parcel, consult their Med division what is the best for you. (they give good advice) Keep it steady Order each month supply in good time, sometimes they run slow in deliveries Read well their information, has many pearls of knowledge - Do not combine with herbs or supplements, you can counteract the effects

HERBS and supplements

1.- Advantages Cheap Infinite combinations Available widely

2.- Disadvantages You must know what you are doing, herbs are not without secondary effects and must also be compatible Changes are very small and may take years

3.- Recommendations Do not trust what is said in the places they sell the herbs, STUDY, research in good books. See for compatibility with your diet

MENTAL imaginery

1.- Advantages Cheapest of all It is unbelievable the changes we can obtain if we believ it (not wanting to believe, really believing it) It also works as anti-stress method Is the most intimate of all, no one will know you are doing it It is perfect for adding to other methods

2.- Disadvantages You must know what you are doing. You can help or destroy your goals with the right or wrong way of mental imaging, don't try without learning first.

3.- Recommendations Study the books: - Keep it Off (Brian Allman) This book is for loosing weight, but the principles can be applied with success to any reshaping - The power of Alfa-thinking (Jess Stearn) Probably you get it only used but is the best on this subject

SURGERY

1.- Advantages Almost immediate results (two weeks to three months) Precision of results Counts with the professional experience of qualified doctors

2.- Disadvantages Price Risks (even minor cosmetic surgeries have life threatening risks) If the results are wrong are very expensive and complicated to correct As the body ages, implants don't and may create strange shapes Implants must be changed each ten years Fat micrografting or liposculpturing fade slowly in 80% of cases

3.- Recommendations Never go by price, go by quality and experience Don't go far to have the surgery, any later complication or correction will mean a new trip. Don't expect a change of life, it will only change your body, YOU must change your mind Speak in person with patients that had your same expected surgery before you go ahead.

How much does a tummy tuck cost?

The average tummy tuck performed by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will cost between $5,000 and $10,000. The price ranges due to the variations in patients and surgical techniques involved. To simplify, some people merely have a protuberant belly and require what plastic surgeons call a mini-abdominoplast. Other patients require extensive work, like those patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery and now have excessive loose skin. Others still may have moderate to severe abdominal muscle laxity and when the surgery involves the muscles, the price will increase.

I got a quote for a tummy tuck for 2,500 USD. Bulgaria seems to have good "cost friendly" options for cosmetic surgery. I am a plastic surgeon in Utah and my fee for a full abdominoplasty is variable depending on what needs be done, usually about $5500.

The prices for Tummy Tuck surgery can vary and it depends on the size of your case and the travel package which our patients would prefer.

The exact cost can be determined by a detailed consultation and examination with considering your expectations.

In my practice, prices for Tummy Tuck surgery reaches from 3750 Euro up to 5750 Euro range, and it also includes the travel package such as accommodation, local transfers, and language assistance.

How do you lessen a bump on the forehead if a child falls?

I'm a paramedic, the best way to lessen a bump is to hold a cold cloth/compress on it for as long as the child will let you. watch for drowsiness and vomiting signs of a concussion. The quicker you put a cold compress on the bump, the better. As a childcare provider, I find the quickest thing is to grab a bag of frozen peas or the like from the freezer, wrap in a small towel and apply to bump as long as possible. Anyone with kids should carry a first aid "quick ice pac". It's a poly-plastic bag that when shaken, the crystals inside mix and create an instant ice pack. Never apply directly to skin; wrap in a towel, or paper towels, then apply to the little ones Boo Boo!

How can you make your lips look bigger?

Here are some suggestions:

  • Use a Lip Enlargement device - the results are incredible if you use the device properly.
  • For a cheaper lip plumper, try Sally Hansen Lip Inflation-dermatologist tested, $8
  • Line your bottom lip with a liner 2 shades darker than the color of your lip gloss. Put lip gloss over your lip line slightly.
  • Lip-gloss makes them stand out so they look plumper, or you can buy plumping lip-gloss, they work but usually around $10.
  • Well if you outline your lip in a shade of lip liner that matches your lips than color that in and put really shiny lip gloss over it will help then if you take sparkly gloss in the center of your lips it will make them look even bigger
  • Trans formulas lip volumizer works, also use color plump from benefit, or try removing you lip hairs and then apply a shade slightly darker than your lip color of lip liner and use lipstick same shade to color, add gloss if you want.
  • To make your lips look bigger, only pencil in the arch on your upper lip then blend that in with your lipstick or your lip gloss.
  • Apply your lipstick just a little outside your natural lip line. If you use lip liner don't use a shade darker than your lipstick. Also clear lip gloss always makes them look fuller and a little pouty.
  • To give your lips a plump pouty look try this method: Apply a little powder foundation to your lips, this will help to keep the color in place and make it last longer. Using a lip liner of whatever color you prefer (I like a using a reddish-brown or medium brown color) line your lips from the inside. If you have thin lips and you want them to look bigger, try going over your natural lip line by a little bit. Don't overdo it because it might look too unnatural. Add a healthy shine with a colorless, nude, or neutral colored gloss to the lips.
  • For added sheen and definition, use a loose shimmery white eyeshadow by dabbing a little to the middle of the bottom lip and a little to the two arches of the upper lip.
  • Put clove oil on your lips.
  • Treat yourself to a good cosmetic studio and have them teach you how to do it. Most of the stars in Hollywood rely on the make-up artist to get the best shape out of lips. Most often young women (even some older women) will look like clowns by either putting lipstick over the line of their lip or using a lipstick pencil that is either too dark or too bright. The cosmeticians have all sorts of tricks up their sleeve. While you're at it learn from them how to apply eyeliner, shadow, etc., to get the best out of your eyes. Eyes and lips are two parts of the face most people look at. Two products I use (older woman) is Cover Girl with a great liquid lipstick and gloss all in one tube and Loreal has come out with a new one as well.
  • You can always get lip implants. They only cost around $1500-2000. They are placed under your lips so that you will have a natural look as opposed to collagen or restylane injections, which make your lips look fake. The implants come in various sizes and now they make them soft just like your own lips, so you can get that natural look and feel. They are permanent unless you decide to take them out.
  • One way to enlarge your lips, or at least, to make it seem as if they are enlarged, is to use a dark shade of lipstick. The common color red works pretty well, however you should not use black or brown. This makes the skin look lighter, and it doesn't suit most people. You should also use a darker lip-liner and a skin tightener on your chin and upper lip around your lips. This will tighten the skin and slightly lift up the lips. Refrain from biting your lips or sucking on them, as this is a relatively common problem that results not only in a bad habit, but medical problems, and relatively "tiny lips".
  • Take lip gloss, and put just a dot in the middle of the top and bottom lip. Smack your lips together and they will look plumper. DONT put the lip gloss all over your lips though, its more dramatic if you only put a dot in the middle.
  • You can have the full, kissable lips you've always wanted. It's as easy as putting on your makeup. In fact it's all about makeup. A few tricks of gloss and pencil, and walla !!! that plump, pouty look is all yours. Gather together some light reflecting concealer, a lip pencil, clear lip gloss and sparkle lip gloss. Begin by applying the light reflecting concealor around the outside of your lip line. Blend it in with your finger. Reflecting the light will create shading, making your lips look bigger. Next use your lip pencil to line your lips. Since you have already applied the concealer you can go just outside your lip line with the pencil. Use the pencil to fill in your lips, creating a solid base. Use a lip brush to apply clear lip gloss. If you prefer colored gloss or even lipstick that's fine too. Finally dab some of the sparkle gloss on the center of your bottom lip. This focuses the light giving the appearance of fullness. You can dab a bit of the sparkle just above the center of your top lip in the "cupids bow" too.
  • TIP - Plump your lips naturally with cinnamon leaf oil. Commercial plumpers are expensive and unnecessary. Most topical plumpers are mild irritants that work by causing the lips to swell slightly. You can get the same effect from cinnamon leaf oil. Apply a small amount to the corner of your lip first as it may sting. Once you're sure the sting isn't too much for you go ahead and apply the oil lightly to both lips.

Can you get injections to make your butt bigger?

you can travel to argentina and get this done, along with a 2 week hotel stay for less than USD 9000. Those injections are illegal in the US and in many countries because are not proven safe. After a while the filler injected can migrate and deform you. Fillers are not yet suitable for large areas, only for small areas. Of course there is always someone willing to inject and someone willing to get it but you risk permanent deformity and asymetry of the glutes.

No problem if medications are used on healthy horses at the correct dosage for their route Vet schools and "books" will recommend against using "ace" stating it can cause "priapism" in males. Never seen it in 40 years of practice, nor have I heard of any other vet who's had it be a problem It's a good combination, especially if you can't afford detomidine and need a sedative to act longer than the xylazine alone

Breast Reduction

How do you reduce breast size without cosmetic surgery?

== == * If a person is over weight and goes on a healthy diet then yes, this can certainly reduce breast size. If the person in question is not over weight and has large breasts then breast reduction surgery is the only option. This problem should be discussed with your doctor. Large breasts can cause many problems such as: *# Upper back pain *# Neck pain *# Shoulder pain *# Breast pain *# Rashes under the breasts *# Shoulder grooving due to bra straps *# Arm pain Other problems related to excessive breast size may also improve with reduction surgery: * *# Restrictions in physical activities, such as exercise, due to your breast size *# Self-consciousness about your breast size *# Breast size that varies significantly from side to side *# Emotional stress, teasing, and feelings of embarrassment *# Difficulty finding bras or clothing which fit * There is only one way to decrease the actual volume of breast tissue, and that is through weight loss. If you are overweight, this is your best option. If not (or if you are one of those lucky people who loses weight everywhere BUT the chest), you can try a minimizing bra. Literally, called a minimizer. You can find them in any dept store. My favorite is made by a brand called Lillyette. These are made to make your breast appear smaller (and as a welcomed side-effect, they give a nice boost). == == * Diet? If you lose weight your breast size will also reduce. If you are carrying excess weight everywhere it will also be in your breasts too, but there are many "skinny" girls with large breasts so that blows that theory. Further it depends on the age of the person asking the question. If you are in menopause, it is natural for your breast to develop, to get larger. The only thing I can suggest, is exercise to sculpt and shape the breast, and perhaps reduce their size or, watch your diet; try to watch things with synthetic hormones added; like meats and dairy products. Try to stick to a vegetarian more pure diet. That should help. good luck and remember we are all beautiful in a variety of shapes sizes and colors... someone else with small boobs might wish they had larger etc... just love yourself! peace : ) * No there isn't. If a woman has extremely large breasts AND ONLY IF it's bothering her back from the strain then surgery for reduction of breasts can be recommended by your doctor. Wear a bra all night, but wear it tight, There are natural products on the market for breast reduction, but there is no independent evidence available on whether or not they are effective. It depends when are you left hand.

How can you make your lips bigger without any type of surgery or makeup?

a good way for a temporary plump would be to use a old toothbrush with rustled brushes and exfoliate your lips. cover them with vaseline first and wait for the vaseline to sit before exfoliating. be careful not to do this too hard as your lips are delicate. make sure your lips are NOT CHAPPED and apply moisture thru chapstick or vaseline (not lipstick/gloss!!!)to your lips immediately after exfoliating. lipstick and gloss will dry out your lips even more so you'd have big lips but chapped ones as well. this trick will not only make your lips bigger, but it will give a more reddish and more natural color to your lips as well. (temporary tho of course)

The other alternative is to use a lip plumper. There are several on the market, some of which are better than others. A good one that appears to have a lot of good reviews is http://lusciouslips.org. You will find once it is applied that your lips start tingling, however this is supposed to happen and means the product is working on plumping your lips. With most lip plumpers the results should be immediate or at the most 5 to 10 minutes.

How do get your skin lighter?

If you have a heredity of dark skin color, then no product or tips could give you lighter skin color.

But there are some daily routines and precautions that can give you more fair, healthy and fresh skin.

Don't experiment any new product on your skin without recommendation.

Take 2 or 3 days in a week total boiled food.

Avoid total junk foods.

Reduce maximum quantity of oil and fat from your diet.

Reduce numbers of cup for tea or coffee.

Drink plenty of water.

Use more salad and fresh fruits daily.

Always have a light dinner.

Do some exercise daily in the morning.

I also recommend to use natural herbal skin care products.

Should cosmetic surgery be covered by insurance?

Some Say No
  • No. There is a reason it is called "health" insurance. The purpose of health insurance is to protect individuals' health. Cosmetic surgeries are a completely different ballpark--they have nothing to do with the person's health, and it makes no sense for health insurance to cover cosmetic procedures.
  • Although it seems unfair that only the rich can afford to buy their perfect body, I do not think that cosmetic plastic surgery should be covered by health insurance. Nearly everyone has something they would like to change about themselves, and if optional cosmetic procedures were to be covered by insurance, premiums that everyone has to pay would increase exponentially. Basic medical coverage would be unattainable for the general public at these rates, and society would be faced with a much greater problem than people being able to afford cosmetic surgery...
Some Say Yes
  • Yea, I think it should if it is truly needed. There are many things that people need help with and if they don't have the money they just have to live with it. That's not right. Everyone should have a chance to live a full life and money should not be the thing that holds them back. They won't say it but there are some people that won't give you a job because you son't look just right or you are a little too fat for them. With money you can change that, so yes, insurance should cover it.
  • I think it should, A woman breastfeeds all the children she has because its a healthier start for them and she is left with saggy boobs she is embarassed to have, it can ruin her spirit her self esteem and her marriage.
  • Plastic surgery means reconstructive surgery although now a days cosmetic surgery has overpowered this term. I feel that reconstructive surgery should be under Health insurance since it is meant for improving the deformed part of the body present either by birth or because of some accident. One must be given a chance to live a healthy and beautiful life and prevent them from any kind of disgrace in society.
Others Say It Already Is if Medically NecessaryPlastic surgery is actually covered by insurance compannies but, it has to be medically necessary. Other than that it has to come out of pocket or use a medical benefit card that reduces the cost so that you're not paying the full price.

Are there pills or injections to make the buttocks bigger and firmer?

  • There no pills to make your but bigger, but there is a procedure you can undergo, it is called fat transfer, if you have an area which has more than normal fat you can transfer that into another area, for the buttocks the cost is 5-6 thousand not including the liposuction that is included, they best way is to work out but i know someone who got the fat transfer and she has a really nice shape now her butt is really big now.
  • Ladies, I will be more than happy to give you some of mine! LOL Ask a professional at a gym what exercises are best. Our buttocks do have muscle so at least you will gain something back there. Be careful what you wish for.
  • No pills or injections will increase butt size (or boob size). You can do exercises (like squats) to work your butt muscles (glutes) enlarge the muscle. Be forewarned. Butt exercises are hard work but they are worth it! You can also buy padded underwear like Jessica Simpson wore in "Dukes."

Another answerBiotechnologies advance every day and yes, there are some pills that can HELP to get bigger buttocks, but don't get confused with the pills that promise magical results. To enhance the buttocks in the most reliable way, you should combine targeted workouts, a good nutrition plan and if you want faster or more extreme results, then you can use a pill for that extra boost.

Here I list a good quantity of researched and tried possible ways to enhance the buttocks, used or tried by my students, my clients, my colleagues or myself.

The least you will get is scammed, all "gains" will disappear soon enough and depending on the substance you may get CANCER. Ask yourself, is it worth the risk?

The DOUBTFULL-----------

  • FISH OIL -As any oil, its fat nutrients may increase size a bit until reabsorbed by the body (could take from two weeks to six months) This when applied externally. - Internally has no proven effects more than weight gain. Risks: can steal Vit E from the body.
  • COLLAGEN CREAMS -Can amke the area more supple and because of betyter irrigation, elasticity and circulation, the area will develope better. These creams will work as allies to other methods, on its own collagen will not bring large changes (but minor yeas)
  • GLUTEUS MAXIMUS -A good ebook with good exercises but not enough on its own
  • OTHER E-BOOKS- Many e-books under different names are sold in the Net, most have just the same information contained in the e-book Gluteus Maximus combined with the information on the e-book that comes with the Femimore Treatment as a free gift.
  • CONCHEVITA -Southamerican pill that was sold but no longer exists. Could not find anyone who bought it or any traces of it in the Net.
  • RELACOR -Just weight change, no shape. Many reported flaccidity as result. Many reported insomnia and other problems.
  • FILLERS- Not yet enough developed for injecting in large areas. Are currently offered in some clinics but the general opinion of the best surgeons is that we must wait for having a filler that can be successfully injected in large areas without risks.
  • NEGATIVE BIOTENSION ENHANCER (NBE) -Sold in Asia and some countries in EU. It is a kind of cup which adapts to the glute and "sucks" it with negative pressure producing what is called negative biotension in the muscles and fat tissues. It is proven that negative biotension stimulates tissue growth. Not enough reports on results yet but seems very promissing. Note: Some cheap copies are beginning to be sold with a hand pump, these are useless. Negative Biotension needs a computarized unit for feedback from the treated area.

The YES list-----

EXERCISE

  • 1- Advantages Cheap - Available everywhere - Can be targeted at selected areas
  • 2- Disadvantages MUST be well planned by a pro or at least deep self-research. Otherwise we end up too muscular or disproportionate. Provides ONLY muscle and could burn fats that are needed for curves
  • 3- Recommendations Get a personal trainer or pro advise and tell exactly what you want to achieve. Don't just ask the guy at the gym unless he is professionally graduated. If you plan it yourself, get the following books: - Women's Strength Training Anatomy (Frederic Delavier) - Fit for your shape (Matt Roberts) - The body sculting bible for women (James Villepigue)

Do not overdue it, more than 45 minutes exercise continuosly can be negative, producing excess Cortisol, a hormone with great importance in how we assimilate fats. Do not train every day, the muscle only developes with alternate periods of exercise-rest.

  • Weight training sculpts you, Pilates gives position, dance (best are latin dances) put your body to burn the necessary excesses and work the curves, skating principally iceskatting shape glutes and hips best.

DIET

  • 1- Advantages Simple
  • 2- Disadvantages By itself is not great help (However can be a very powerful ally of other methods multiplying their results)
  • 3- Recommendations Do not follow a "made for all" diet. You are unique and your diet for shaping must be specifically designed for you. Low GI is a must Small snacks each 3 hours work better than three or two large meals. (Keep the body building the good fats and muscles and burning the bad fats) Supplements as Vit C, Magnesium, Lecithin and B complex are a must. Protein from nuts and cheese are far better in shaping than from animal flesh. Animal flesh counteracts shaping because of its limited value. The book 'The hourglass effect' (very difficult to find) is the best there is (do not mistake with some e-book called the hourglass figure or something similar that has been reported at many forums as useless and has nothing to do with the real book). Was published in a short edition and sold out fast.

FEMIMORE

  • 1.- Advantages An integrated treatment with the workouts, the nutrition and the pills for adding results. It works. (All the doubts and fuzz in many forums are created by those who sell other alternatives or those who have not the money for affording it) You can combine these products to suit your specific needed areas Count with the experience of a Medical Division Many have reported that to take intensive (double dosage) increases results and that combining with other of their treatments also enhances results.
  • 2.- Disadvantages Price You must commit one year to it (However is very much worth it) Are not magic pills, you must follow at least basical diet advice and basic exercise advice
  • 3.- Recommendations Choose one or two products but as soon as you receive the first parcel, consult their Med division what is the best for you. (they give good advice) Keep it steady Order each month supply in good time, sometimes they run slow in deliveries Read well their information, has many pearls of knowledge - Do not combine with herbs or supplements, you can counteract the effects

HERBS, herbal pills and supplements

  • 1.- Advantages Cheap Infinite combinations Available widely
  • 2.- Disadvantages You must know what you are doing, herbs are not without secondary effects and must also be compatible Changes are very small and may take years
  • 3.- Recommendations Do not trust what is said in the places they sell the herbs, STUDY, research in good books. See for compatibility with your diet

MENTAL imaginery

  • 1.- Advantages Cheapest of all It is unbelievable the changes we can obtain if we believ it (not wanting to believe, really believing it) It also works as anti-stress method Is the most intimate of all, no one will know you are doing it It is perfect for adding to other methods
  • 2.- Disadvantages You must know what you are doing. You can help or destroy your goals with the right or wrong way of mental imaging, don't try without learning first.
  • 3.- Recommendations Study the books: - Keep it Off (Brian Allman) This book is for loosing weight, but the principles can be applied with success to any reshaping - The power of Alfa-thinking (Jess Stearn) Probably you get it only used but is the best on this subject

SURGERY

  • 1.- Advantages Almost immediate results (two weeks to three months) Precision of results Counts with the professional experience of qualified doctors
  • 2.- Disadvantages Price Risks (even minor cosmetic surgeries have life threatening risks) If the results are wrong are very expensive and complicated to correct As the body ages, implants don't and may create strange shapes Implants must be changed each ten years Fat micrografting or liposculpturing fade slowly in 80% of cases
  • 3.- Recommendations Never go by price, go by quality and experience Don't go far to have the surgery, any later complication or correction will mean a new trip. Don't expect a change of life, it will only change your body, YOU must change your mind Speak in person with patients that had your same expected surgery before you go ahead.

Is Botox or a face lift better?

Botox is injected into your face with a needle to relax specific muscles on your face, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. A face lift makes incisions in your skin to gently pull and lift the wrinkles out. Face lifts require anesthesia and significant cutting/stitching. Botox is a simple procedure without anesthetic, and with good results.

But Facelift lasts longer whereas Botox should be redone every 6 months.

Can you have Botox injected into your fingers?

No, Botox has only been approved for removing wrinkles between the eyebrows, among a few other medical uses.

Did you know that Botox is the poison from the botulism bacteria?

I don't see why not... but it will not remove your fingerprints because these are caused by skin construction not muscle spasms. Only thing it can cause is loss of feeling and potentially some movement disorders. To get rid of fingerprints you will have to remove them by damaging dermis.

Can liposuction or gastric bypass surgery pose a threat to life?

All surgeries imply a risk of life, even the simplest one. The advances in surgical technologies and techniques have reduced greatly the risks but thre are still cases of fatalities caused by unexpected complications.

The death rate from complications related to liposuction is about 1 in 5,000, although the actual death risk when liposuction is performed by a good doctor is somewhat minimal.

The death rate within the first 30 days of gastric bypass is normally quoted to be at about 1 in 250. The long term risk of death is considerably less than the long term risk of severe obesity.

Why is plastic surgery becoming so popular?

As the techniques and supporting technology becomes more advanced, risks are less. The increasing public exposure of cosmetic surgery procedures is also a reason why more people turns to it.

However, some non invasive procedures are also increasing in adepts and with several less risky options available for some procedures, cosmetic surgeons are expanding their clinics and services to include the less invasive methodologies.
