Breast augmentation and breast lifts may be among the most popular procedures in the field of cosmetic surgery, but cosmetic procedures for the nipples and areolas can also deliver significant aesthetic enhancements. This is because the nipple and surrounding areola—the pigmented skin around the nipples—serve as a central focal point for each breast. Their look, shape and placement help define the overall appearance and symmetry of the breasts.
Anyone contemplating a facelift generally has numerous questions about the specific procedure and how it will work with their facial structure and skin type. While there are various rejuvenating facial procedures, a range of individual characteristics determines in part the effectiveness and outcomes of each. And while the age of the patient plays a role, age itself should not be the determining factor about making the decision about when to have a facelift.
No matter what reason spurred the decision to pursue breast augmentation, deciding on which implant type presents one of the more difficult choices women have to make, once they embark on the surgical route to breast vitalization. While all breast implants are made out of an inert polymer named silicone, deciding on the contents within—silicone gel or saline solution—has long stirred up the most internal debate. But there is a newer, third option women should be considering as well. That is, Ideal Implant® Structured Breast Implants that maneuver the flow of saline to better mimic the natural feel and look of breast tissue.
Hair loss is a fact of life, as everyone naturally loses hair every day, from dozens of strands to a hundred and sometimes even more. While hair loss in men is almost considered a given, public awareness about the issue of female hair loss and female pattern baldness seems to be limited to those who might be experiencing it. And yet, the numbers of women experiencing hair loss or pattern balding has been significantly increasing in recent years.
