Implants That Settle

The friendly foe to all of us, gravity, enables us to live on this planet, but unfortunately to show our age with skin sag. Another victim of this force is the breast implant which over time can settle downward. When this process proceeds to an undesirable degree, we refer to the condition with the unmedical-sounding […]

Otoplasty – Ear Pinning

Ears as appendages are extraordinarily useful as we seek to survive and to enjoy our world.

“Muffin Top” – with or without “The Pooch”

“Muffin top” enjoys a post in Wikipedia (plus photos) defined as tummy tissue which runneth over the waistlines of clothing which either is too tight or is trying to corral excess fat, suggesting a muffin overflowing the edge of its paper casing. Any elastic band will create at least a “mini-me muffin” even among the […]
