Best Summer Beach Towel Hack - DIY
This is probably going to be the BEST DIY HACK I have seen/done all Summer! Look at this easy-to-sew project that you are definitely going to want to make before Friday! You know the drill by now... Supplies Needed: 2 beach towels (that are the same) Polyester fiberfill Fabric Velcro Tools Needed: Scissors Sewing machine Pins Instructions: 1. Lay out one towel, and then place the second one perpendicular to the first, lining up one edge. 2. Cut the second towel, making a rectangle that, folded over, will form your pillow. 3. Fold this rectangle in half, sew three sides and part of the fourth, leaving a hole to fill with pillow stuffing. 4. Add polyester fiberfill to the pillow, then sew the open edge. 5. Cut two strips of fabric for your straps. Adjust the size to the length you prefer, just remember you will lose about an inch on each end where it attaches to the towel. 6. Fold your strips in half lengthwise with the right side facing in, and sew along the long edge. 7. Flip the strap right-side out so the pattern is on the outside. 8. Pin the pillow to the unaltered towel, and sew it in place. 9. Roll the towel around the pillow. If it’s long, fold it in half. 10. Pin the straps and Velcro on the appropriate parts of the towel (so that it functions like a bag). 11. Cut out a rectangle of fabric to create a pocket on the side of the “bag,” making sure to iron down the edges to create a hem. 12. Sew the side that will be the top of the pocket. 13. Pin your pocket to the towel while it’s still wrapped up and in its bag form. 14. Now that everything is pinned in place, unroll the towel and sew all of the pieces to secure them to the towel. Fold the rectangle you just created in half, sew three sides and a little bit of the fourth, leaving a hole to fill with pillow stuffing. Add polyester fiberfill to the pillow, and then sew the open edge. Pillow complete! Next, cut two strips of fabric for your straps. Adjust the size to the length you prefer by laying them over your shoulder. Remember you will lose about an inch on each end where it attaches to the towel. Now fold your strips in half lengthwise with the right side facing in, and sew along the long edge. Flip the straps right-side out so the pattern is on the outside. You might want to iron your straps at this point. Flipping them right side out can create some wrinkles. Now it’s time to construct your towel. Attach the pillow to your unaltered towel with pins, and then sew it in place. Next, we’ll add all of the pieces to make it a functional bag. Roll the towel around the pillow. If it’s long like ours, fold it in half. Pin the straps and Velcro on the appropriate parts of the towel. All great bags have pockets, so we’re making one to carry sunscreen, sunnies and poolside beverages. Cut out a rectangle of fabric to create your pocket on the side of the “bag,” making sure to iron down the edges to create a hem. Sew the side that will be the top of the pocket. Pin your pocket to the towel while it’s still wrapped up and in its bag form. Now that everything is pinned in place, unroll the towel and sew all of the pieces to secure them to the towel. You are FINISHED! Now all you need is a place to go, like a lake or a beach or a water park or even your backyard! Click here to see more summer tips and tricks and projects!
Dimpleplasty - Get Dimples With A Quick And Easy Procedure
Cher, Mario Lopez, and Jennifer Garner are all famous for their dimpled smiles. They recently inspired fans to get their own dimples. “Everyone in Hollywood has them, and everyone wants them,” say plastic surgeons. Men who want the “Mario Lopez” look are also interested in the procedure. So, what is Dimpleplasty? Natural dimples are caused by skin adhering to underlying tissue. If someone smiles, a dimple appears. While some dimples last into adulthood, many disappear as a child grows and the cheek muscle matures. The latest cosmetic surgery trend is Dimpleplasty in Mumbai. Cosmetic surgeons now create four times as many dimples as they did a few years ago. What is Dimpleplasty? A tiny incision inside the patient's cheek creates dimples. No cuts on the outside of the face. The remaining cheek muscle is sutured to the skin's underside with dissolvable suture. An incision on the inside of the cheek creates a dimple. One local anaesthetic is used for the entire outpatient procedure. The dimples will be deeper at first, but will look natural after a few months. Initially visible whenever the patient smiles, the dimples gradually fade away. What is the Dolly Dimple? Dr. Siddharth Prakash, one of the few cosmetic surgeons who offers the service, says the “Dolly Dimple” is an updated version of the original dimple creation surgery in Mumbai that is more predictable. "Dimples can be more personalised," said Dr. Siddharth. “Patients can design their own dimples, long, short, deep, shallow, etc.” The patient can also choose the location of the dimples on their cheeks. Dimples are cute and brighten a person's smile. They are even lucky in some cultures.
5 Things To Know Before Your Tummy Liposuction For 6 Pack Abs
There are two types of fat to consider when doing tummy liposuction: subcutaneous and visceral. Subcutaneous fat is the jiggly, pinchable fat found just beneath the skin. It's generally harmless, but not always appealing. Visceral fat is fat stored in the abdomen. "Skinny-fat" is a term used to describe people with a lot of visceral fat. Not only is it unhealthy, but it's also dangerous. Because visceral fat is stored near your organs, it is more likely to disrupt organ functions, leading to increased insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes), blood pressure, bad cholesterol (LDL), and heart disease and stroke risk. Tummy liposuction removes subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is insoluble in water and cannot be suctioned out. Diet and exercise can safely reduce visceral fat. Visceral fat does not prevent you from having liposuction, but it does affect the results. The patient had liposuction of the abdomen, waist, and hips. The patient was pleased with the visible results. However, visceral fat remains in the tummy , which liposuction cannot remove. Without an MRI or CAT scan, you can't tell how much visceral fat you have. Visceral fat makes up about 10% of total body fat. Your visceral fat may start to affect your health if your waist circumference is 40 inches or 35 inches for a man and 35 inches for a woman. Tummy liposuction does not always require general anaesthesia. It's true for all body parts, but not always! In fact, some surgeons still prefer general anaesthesia, especially for abdominal surgery. Your plastic surgeon will almost certainly use the tumescent method, which has long been the gold standard for safe and effective liposuction. Tummy fat is removed by injecting tumescent fluid (saline and epinephrine with sodium bicarbonate as a buffer) into the skin-to-abdominal cavity area. The saline solution fills the fatty layer beneath the skin, making it easier to sculpt (hence the name Liposculpture). Epinephrine is a vasoconstrictor, reducing bruising and blood loss. For tummy liposuction under local anaesthesia, your surgeon will add lidocaine (a numbing agent) to the tumescent fluid. In addition to avoiding the risks associated with general anaesthesia, this allows your cosmetic surgeon to perform lipo without putting patients to sleep. Watch for Loose Skin and Belly Hang. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, causing our skin to lose elasticity and bounce back. Now anyone can have liposuction! Remember that skin laxity is more likely to be an issue with tummy lipo as you age. Loose skin can occur after extreme weight loss, as well as after liposuction. With SmartLipo, laser-assisted liposuction in Mumbai tightens skin better than liposuction alone. In some cases, due to the size of the abdomen or lack of skin elasticity, a tummy tuck may be required. You can gain weight even if fat doesn't move. Liposuction is an investment in your body that requires maintenance. Tummy liposuction will not prevent you from gaining weight. Even if you gain weight, your tummy will still be slimmer! Liposuction is not a weight loss solution and should not be used as such. Tummy liposuction permanently removes abdominal fat. Those cells don't regenerate, move, or change where they store fat. After tummy liposuction, your body has fewer fat cells in the abdomen (about 70 percent less). If you gain weight after tummy liposuction, your body will store fat in the same places. Because we removed so much fat from your tummy , other areas may appear larger. That you can eat whatever you want and never gain weight just because your tummy is smaller after lipo means nothing. Again, liposuction is not a quick fix and should not be used as such. 6 pack abs are made in the gym and the kitchen. "Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym," you've probably heard. That's a lot of truth. Subcutaneous fat hides abdominal muscles, no matter how big and strong they are. Or does it remove subcutaneous fat? So why don't all lipo patients have six-pack abs? The answer is simple: abs come from the kitchen and the gym. There's the gym and the operating room for tummy lipo. You've probably seen a flat tummy . They don't have much belly fat and have good muscle definition, but no six-pack. As previously shown, having a lot of visceral fat can prevent you from getting a flat tummy from lipo. You won't get abs from liposuction in Mumbai unless you first build strong ab muscles through exercise and weight training.
Ultimate T-Shirt Revamp

You should totally do the same thing and then share your pics on here! It's all part of Vingle My Summer Collection, which you can follow here. Use a TOO-BIG-FOR-YOU t-shirt and put it on inside-out. This allows you to mark where your shoulders begin with chalk. Just make a mark. Make a straight line from the shoulder mark to the armpit on the sleeve. Cut along the line you just made. Trim off the excess of the part you cut off to make the sleeve smaller and more comfortable your your arm. Pin and stitch to the shirt. Don't freak out because of the gaping hole at the bottom of the armpit and shirt. Stitch up the hole below the armpit. You can leave the sleeves alone at this point OR you can add some elastic to ruche them. Using your zig-zag stitch, sew the strip of elastic on the inside of the sleeve. This should go from the bottom of the sleeve to the shoulder. Don't make it too tight or it will look awful! Using a longer piece of elastic, measure the length and tightness you want to achieve with your dress. Again, don't make it too tight, it's supposed to be gently ruched. Sew it into the shirt to create the waistline you want--as high or low as you like. All that's left is to add any detailing you want such as lace or beads. I prefer simplicity and plan to throw on a cute necklace and some flats for summer. What are you going to do? For more cute t-shirt ideas, click here.

Make A Tulle Circle Skirt
Note to self, when making this and shooting a selfie, HOLD A DOZEN GOLDEN YELLOW ROSES! This is such a fun and elegant way to wear a tulle skirt! Using black fabric tulle keeps it classy without looking like a tutu or a costume. This project requires a sewing machine but that doesn't mean that it's a hard project. It's actually quite easy, as you'll see... What You Need: Tulle Lining (same color of tulle) craft paper scissors elastic (1"-1.5" thick) straight pins marking chalk Step 1 Use craft paper to cut a large square. Then measure your hip measurement out from one corner (just keep pivoting the ruler to make lots of marks and connect the dots at the end to get your rounded edge). Repeat the process from the same corner to find the bottom of your skirt line, but add the waist measurement to your total skirt length for that number (so if your length is 22" and your waist measurement is 6.5", then measure out 28.5"). Cut out your pattern paper. Cut squares of tulle that are big enough to fit your paper pattern when the the square is folded in half, and then folded in half again to make a smaller square that is 1/4 the original size. Using the example numbers above, you would need a square that was 57" wide (28.5 x 28.5 = 57) when unfolded. The number of squares you have determines the number of layers your skirt will contain, so buy your fabric yardage accordingly. If you can't find a tulle wide enough to get a square as big as you need, you'll have to sew two pieces side by side first before cutting your square down to size. Fold your large square in half, and then in half again, and place the pattern so that the corner with the middle of the square is near the waistline of the pattern. Use fabric scissors to cut along the waistline and bottom hemline. Unfold the tulle, and you should have a giant tulle donut! Step 2 Cut out as many layers as you want for the tulle. Cut out an extra piece for your lining. Either hem the lining so it's shorter than the tulle, which is what you want, or serge it on a serger or baby lock machine. Completely up to you. Don't over think it. Step 3 To make your waistband, pin the elastic around your natural waist so that it feels snug but not too tight. Wiggle out of the elastic and sew it together at that point. Trim the ends to 1/2" long, fold the ends down, pin in place, and sew those down to flatten them. Step 4 Use marking chalk to mark 4 equal sections on the waistline of your tulle circle. Do the same with the inside edge of your waistband. Use the marks to line up your waistband with your fabric and pin with 4 straight pins at each mark (you'll pin the bottom inside edge of the waistband onto the top of the fabric layers. Step 5 Since your elastic waistline is probably smaller than your fabric opening (that's measured to the widest part of your hips), you'll notice that there is some gapping where the sections of tulle are longer than the elastic. In that case, just pin the middle of each gap to the middle of the elastic section so you now have 8 pins total holding your layers together. Step 6 To sew your layers together, turn your skirt inside out and sew a few stitches near where a pin is holding the layers together. While the needle is in the down position, pull your elastic towards you until the fabric gap straightens out and sew along the waistband with a 1/2" seam allowance on the fabric layers. Continue this process of pulling the elastic and the fabric straight and sewing until you get all the way around the waistband. Not bad, right? More like FANTASTIC! Enjoy your brand new tulle circle skirt. Where it out in style. Grab some flowers too for that selfie! If you love these kinds of projects, please click here for even more to do!

First, choose a cursive handwritten font and print your phrase the size you want it to appear on your garment. Step 2. Use scissors or an X-Acto knife to cut out your letters to make a template for your sequins. Place it where you want your phrase to be and use a marker to trace the middle of your phrase. Step 3. Place some fabric glue on the left side of the marker outline and set your sequin trim on top of the glue (you want the whole phrase to be outlined with one row of sequins when you're done). Step 4. Once you have one row of sequins completed, use your fabric glue to place another line of glue on the right side of your marker line. Take your sequin trim, make a U-turn at the end of your phrase, and trace your phrase backwards by placing the trim on the glue (you'll want the rows to overlap a bit). When you get back to the beginning, trim your excess and fold your end sequin under the second-to-last sequin (on both the beginning and end of your strand) and glue in place. Step 5. Once the glue is dry, use a needle and thread to secure your phrase to the sweatshirt by sewing every third or fourth sequin to the actual sweatshirt.

12 Questions About Breast Lift Surgery Answered By A Plastic Surgeon
Are you experiencing sagging or loose skin in your breasts as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss? Are you prone to irritation of the skin as a result of sagging breasts? Are you concerned about the appearance of your breasts (as a result of volume loss associated with ageing)? If this is the case, a breast lift procedure may be beneficial. This procedure repositions your skin, nipple, and areola to restore your youthful breasts. Apart from cosmetic concerns, a substantial body of clinical evidence suggests that a breast lift may benefit a variety of health problems. What Exactly Is a Breast Lift? A breast lift, alternatively referred to as a "mastopexy," is a surgical procedure that raises the nipple and areola. Additionally, it corrects breast sagging and drooping by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining breast tissues. If your areola is not proportionate to the size of your breasts, the procedure may reduce its size. How long do the effects of a Breast Lift last? The outcome of the procedure may vary from patient to patient. This will depend on a variety of variables, including the following: How you care for your newly formed breasts The surgical procedure that was performed Your age The anticipated outcome Your eating habits Elasticity of your skin In most cases, the effects of a breast lift last up to two years. However, because the procedure cannot reverse the effects of ageing on the breasts, you may require additional surgery to maintain the results. Prior to the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will conduct an examination of your overall health to ensure long-term results. Does a breast lift result in an increase in cup size? The procedure does not alter the shape of the breasts; rather, it realigns the skin, nipple, and areola. As a result, the breast contour appears younger and more defined. If you want to increase the size of your breasts, you may benefit from a surgical procedure called breast augmentation or breast lift with implants. This procedure enhances the appearance and size of your breasts by using implants or your own body fat. Can I discontinue wearing a bra following a breast lift? No, your surgeon will instruct you to wear a special bra or compression garments following surgery to help reduce swelling and support your breasts as they heal. Indeed, your surgeon will likely advise you to wear a support bra following surgery. This also allows time for your breasts to adjust to their new shape. How is a lollipop breast lift performed? The lollipop lift is a surgical procedure reserved for patients with breasts of average size. This is accomplished by cutting around the areola, which runs down the centre of the lower breast and resembles a lollipop on a stick. These incisions will be used by your plastic surgeon to elevate the breast and reposition the nipple and areola into the desired position. After repositioning the skin, your surgeon will tighten and secure it with sutures. With this surgical technique, scarring is minimal. However, because your surgeon will be working with a small incision, it will be challenging to perform. What is ananchor breast lift? An anchor lift, also known as a standard breast lift, entails creating an inverted anchor-shaped cut around the perimeter of your areola that runs down to the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease. This procedure is recommended for patients who require extensive skin and breast tissue removal. However, this surgical technique is quite invasive and carries a higher risk of undesirable scarring. Is it possible to lose weight following a breast lift? Excess skin is removed during the procedure to firm and define your breasts. However, it does not remove a large amount of skin or tissue, resulting in noticeable weight loss. Are Breast Implants needed in a breast lift? Breast lifts are performed without the use of implants to enhance the appearance of your breasts. Rather than that, your surgeon will reposition the existing breast tissue, nipple, and areola to create the appearance of younger, more defined breasts. Breast augmentation is a procedure that involves the placement of implants in the breasts. In some instances, breast augmentation can be combined with a mastopexy in Mumbai to achieve the most optimal and long-lasting results. Does breast lift surgery reduce the size of the areola? Yes, surgery can help reduce the size of enlarged areolas caused by sagging breasts. To achieve optimal cosmetic results, the majority of patients who undergo a breast lift require areola reduction. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will determine whether areola reduction is necessary for your breast condition. How is a breast lift different from breast implant surgery? A breast lift aims to enhance the shape and symmetry of your existing breasts by reshaping and lifting them for a more youthful appearance and contour. Breast implants, on the other hand, increase the volume of your breasts to increase their size, but they do not alter the placement of your breasts. Breast lifts and breast implants are frequently used in conjunction to achieve the best and most durable results. How much does a breast lift cost? Naturally, the cost of a breast lift surgery in Mumbai is dependent on a variety of factors, including the following: Your surgery's supplies and equipment The medical facility's or clinic's cost Anesthetist's fee Assistant surgeon's fee Your breasts' condition Your desired results Additionally, the surgeon's fee. It is critical to keep in mind that each treatment plan is customised to your unique health and cosmetic needs, as well as desired outcomes. As a result, total fees may vary between patients. Additionally, you should understand that a breast lift is a cosmetic procedure. In other words, the procedure is performed to enhance the appearance of the breasts. Your health insurance will not cover this procedure. Is it possible to avoid scarring following a breast lift? The majority of patients are so pleased with the results of their breast lift that they are unconcerned about the appearance of their surgical scars. Many patients discover that the benefits of breast lift surgery in Mumbai outweigh the potential for scarring. However, it is natural for patients to be concerned about the appearance of scars following complete healing of surgical incisions. The truth is that visible signs of breast lift surgery are possible. Your scars, on the other hand, should fade and lighten in appearance over time. To achieve minimal scarring, most surgeons make small, inconspicuous breast incisions during the procedure. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the surgical technique and incision placement in detail.
Hyaluronic Acid - The Natural Skin Plumping Sugar
Despite its tough pronunciation and even more complicated spelling; hyaluronic acid is an important part of your daily skin care routine. It's widely used in serums, sheet masks, and moisturisers. This is because HA, a naturally occurring molecule in the skin, binds to water and plumps the face, giving it a dewy, glowing appearance. It's clear that word of its benefits has spread, as it's one of the most sought-after ingredients in skin-care products. Aside from increasing skin moisture levels, hyaluronic acid serves other functions. What is hyaluronic acid, exactly? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the skin that helps water bind to collagen, keeping it in place and giving the skin a plumper, dewier, and more hydrated appearance. Essentially, hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration, which helps to maintain the skin's youthful, full, and bouncy appearance. Collagen in our dermis determines the structure of our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is covalently linked to water molecules on one side and collagen on the other, providing plumpness to the skin. What is hyaluronic acid's function? As we age, our collagen and hyaluronic acid levels gradually decline, causing our skin to become increasingly dry. Furthermore, winter heaters, specific skin care products, and underlying skin disorders can cause microscopic tears in the protective skin barrier, allowing water to escape. As a result, implementing a customised skin care regimen that includes moisturising products could be extremely beneficial. Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, colloidal oatmeal, urea, propylene glycol, and sorbitol are humectants, which draw water to the skin to hydrate it. These chemicals can be found in a variety of products, such as moisturisers, eye creams, and serums. The use of HA-containing products tightens the skin around the eyes, increases moisture to reduce puffiness, and softens fine wrinkles throughout the face. Hyaluronic acid is effective when applied topically due to its ease of penetration. Our skin is the largest organ in the body, soaking up up to 60% of the nutrients applied to it. Furthermore, the lightweight, fluid nature of hyaluronic acid, as well as its ability to retain moisture from the environment and deeper dermis to completely hydrate the skin, are benefits. Who should benefit from hyaluronic acid? All skin types benefit from hyaluronic acid. It is non-irritating in general and does not aggravate acne, rosacea, or allergic skin conditions. However, there is a very small chance of experiencing any negative consequences. Individuals with dry and/or older skin will benefit the most from the application of hyaluronic acid. Because our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid as we age, people in their forties and fifties will benefit the most from applying it topically. Despite the fact that the term "acid" appears in the term of hyaluronic acid, those with sensitive skin should not be worried; it is completely safe for everyone. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in our bodies, there are no known side effects from using it. If you have an allergic reaction to it or a product that contains it, contact your dermatologist immediately; the reaction could be caused by another active or inactive ingredient. Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Injections of hyaluronic acid are also available. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance found in dermal fillers that attracts water after injection to replenish volume and restore lost structure. This helps to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also reducing the overall sunken or drooping appearance of the face. These dermal fillers can be used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek augmentation, chin augmentation, undereyes, lips, and back of the hands, among other things. Because the quality of fillers varies, it's critical to consult with your dermatologist about your options to ensure you get the best one for you. A cosmetic surgeon compares different types of hyaluronic acid fillers to different types of paintbrushes. They all contain the same component, but the density, lift-ability, and durability of the molecules vary depending on their size and arrangement. Additionally, it is reversible. Because it is injected into your face, it is not permanent. Because hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are reversible, your dermatologist can dissolve the filler quickly using the enzyme hyaluronidase if you are dissatisfied with the results or if a blood artery is blocked during the injection process. The enzyme works quickly; the substance dissolves quickly and is completely destroyed within 24 to 48 hours. Individuals who are allergic to bees, on the other hand, should proceed with caution — and consult a dermatologist — before attempting hyaluronidase-based therapy because the enzyme is found in bee venom. Hyaluronic acid fillers, on the other hand, are not for everyone. Except for pregnant women, the vast majority of people can benefit from hyaluronic acid fillers. Pregnancy and fillers have not been thoroughly studied, but dermatologists generally avoid injecting pregnant women due to uncertainty. Furthermore, if you have a current skin infection, you should avoid these fillers. First, treat the infection, and then return to your appointment once your dermatologist has given you the all-clear. If you're thinking about using hyaluronic fillers, there are a few minor risks to be aware of. Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects of any injectable treatment. The good news is that these shortfalls will only last a short time. Tenderness should subside within a few days. To reduce the risk of bruising, blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and red wine should be avoided for about a week before treatment. Furthermore, arnica and bromelain may aid in the reduction of swelling and bruising.
How To Pick The Best Plastic Surgeon For Your Rhinoplasty
Recent advancements in cosmetic surgery have allowed surgeons to achieve more natural, aesthetically pleasing, and elegant results. But no amount of advanced technology or surgical techniques can replace a skilled facial plastic surgeon's artistic eye and skill. Simply put, not all surgeons are equal. This is especially true of Rhinoplasty (also known as a "nose job"). The nose, along with the eyes and smile, is one of the most noticeable facial features. While you want a surgeon who will perform a safe procedure with minimal recovery time, you also want a surgeon who has the experience, artistic ability, and knowledge of nose anatomy to produce a stunning result. However, some surgeons lack the training and experience required to perform exceptional facial surgery. It is better to find out well before surgery! Before choosing a surgeon for your Rhinoplasty in Mumbai, do your homework well. Find out about the procedure and the surgeon from those who have had a successful Nose Job. Check reviews and inquire. Your experience will suffer if you are afraid to ask questions or communicate clearly. Before selecting a surgeon for your Rhinoplasty, consider asking her/ him the following: What are your qualifications? You can usually look up a surgeon's education, training, and board certifications online. A lack of a website by your plastic surgeon may be a red flag. Choose a Board certified surgeon. These surgeons have undergone extensive specialised training and are truly dedicated to facial plastic surgery. The number of rhinoplasties performed? A good surgeon will have performed hundreds, if not thousands, of these procedures over the course of his career. Like anything else, practise makes perfect. Choose a surgeon with the "numbers" to develop advanced technique and expertise. Please share your before and after photos? This is a fair and common request. Verify that your surgeon's photos are of actual patients, not stock photos. This will help you understand the surgeon's skills. Please show me some happy Rhinoplasty patients' testimonials? Reputable surgeons should be able to easily produce patient testimonials and before and after photos. If a surgeon refuses to provide these, he may simply lack them. Can you make my nose look like a famous person's? If you have a celebrity "nose crush," ask the surgeon if you can have your nose shaped like theirs. Be wary of a surgeon who claims to be able to duplicate another's nose. It may not be possible or desirable to give you an exact copy unless your nose and face share the same shape and bone structure. Responsable nose surgeons will work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs while remaining realistic. What is the procedure's cost? The cost of Rhinoplasty in Mumbai should be fairly consistent if you choose surgeons with similar levels of expertise. If a surgeon quotes you a price significantly lower than others, proceed with caution. You get what you pay for in life, and a Rhinoplasty is not something you want to skimp on. While a new, well-done nose can boost patients' confidence, a new, poorly done nose can do the opposite. Remember that paying another surgeon to fix it later isn't saving you any money.
9 Effective Skincare Tips For Teenagers With Acne
A pimple develops when the pores of the skin become clogged with sebum; a type of oil that normally lubricates the skin and hair. Acne is common during puberty, when hormones kick in and the skin produces an abnormally high amount of sebum. Because the forehead, nose, and chin contain so many oil-producing glands, this area, dubbed the T-zone, is the most prone to pimples. Here are a few pointers to help you avoid and treat breakouts quickly: Wash your face twice daily with warm water and a gentle acne-specific cleanser (no more). Massage your face gently in circular motions. No scrubbing is required. Excessive washing and scrubbing can irritate the skin. After cleansing, apply a low-strength benzoyl peroxide lotion. Never squeeze your pimples. It's tempting, but here are some reasons why you should avoid it: Pimple popping can result in the push of infected material deeper into the skin, causing swelling, redness, and acne scarring. If you notice a pimple developing prior to a significant event, such as a wedding, a dermatologist can frequently treat it with minimal scarring or infection. Don't touch your face or lean your face against objects that collect sebum and skin residue, such as your phone. By touching your face, you can spread bacteria and cause inflamed and irritated pores. Wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as your acne treatment creams or makeup, to keep bacteria at bay. Clean your pair of glasses or sunglasses to avoid clogging the pores around your eyes and nose with oil. Avoid tight fitting clothes if you have acne on your body. They obstruct the skin's ability to breathe and may irritate it. On scarves, headbands, and caps, dirt and oil can also accumulate. Remove your makeup before going to bed. When shopping for makeup, look for brands that list "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic" on the label. Remove any old makeup that has a different smell or appearance than the day you purchased it. Keep your hair clean and away from your face to avoid clogging your pores with dirt and oil. Never skip sunscreen. While a tan may appear to conceal acne, this is only temporary. A tan may aggravate your acne rather than help it. Additionally, tanning wreaks havoc on the skin, causing wrinkles and increasing your risk of developing skin cancer. Consult a dermatologist if you are concerned about acne. Dermatologists offer a variety of acne treatment options for acne scar prevention and treatment. A dermatologist can assist you in determining the most effective treatment method for you and provide you with a wealth of useful advice on how to manage acne and care for your particular skin type.
