Botox is a toxic botulinum that interferes with nerve impulses. In small doses Botox, is completely safe as it temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause frown lines in the face. As the muscle is paralyzed, the skin is smoothed and the wrinkles disappear. Many of the physicians using Botox are reporting that their patients are seeing dramatic results. Some patients feel that they are able to postpone planned cosmetic surgery.
Botox has been used safely and effectively now for many years to treat a variety of disorders. Now, finally, it has become one of the most popular treatments today for reversing the visible signs of aging. If those expression lines and lines derived from squinting as a result of sun glare are making you look older than your years, or are giving you the appearance of a frown or scowl, then discover Botox and put on a happy face!
Our eyes project an image of who we are, as they say the eyes are the windows of the soul. Therefore it is very important to make the most of one of our most striking and attractive features. If our eyes look well rested, youthful and enthusiastic, most people will assume that is how we are feeling. If our eyes project a tired, depressed and uninterested look, people will assume the worst.
When wrinkles, lines, and puffiness develop (sometimes at all too early an age), the eyes give an inaccurate reflection of our emotional state or energy level. It is bad enough when we see this reflected in our own mirror, but even worse when we are constantly asked if we have had enough sleep. No one wants to look older or more tired than they really are, so if your eyes are giving a false impression it’s time to take action.
It is important for people to realize that the more you maintain your skin, especially when you are in your 20s and 30s, the less you will have to overhaul when you get older. So it is important to get on a skin care program, with special eye cream products in your 20s and then you will be able to hold off on the cosmetic procedures until much later. There are many beauty tips and skin care programs that can help to keep the skin moist and supple, and many of these will also help to keep the eyes looking their best.
It is also very important to get enough sleep, as not enough of it leads to puffy and baggy eyes... Eat healthy as well. It is not just a cliché. To a great extent you are what you eat, and it is necessary to have a diet that is rich with foods containing Vitamin A to provide nutrients for your eyes and enhance vision

A Breast lift operation is desired when breasts sag after multiple pregnancies or significant weight loss. For many women, the size, shape, or contour of their breasts do not fit their self-image. This remarkable procedure is designed to elevate and reshape the breast providing a youthful appearance. A breast lift is sometimes performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.
How are these procedures performed
The procedure is performed in an operating theatre, almost always under general anaesthetic. You may require in hospital stay, although for some patients, day case surgery is possible. The operation takes between two and four hours depending on what needs to be done. Prior to the operation, the incision lines and the new nipple and areolar position will be marked on your skin. Once asleep, the nipples and areolae will be moved to their new location, the excess breast tissue excised and the breasts shaped. The wounds are closed using dissolving stitches and a dressing applied. A small rubber drain may be used to remove any blood or fluid which may accumulate.
What are the possible complications?
Temporary side effects that may occur with both reductions and lifts include bruising, swelling, tightness or tenderness of the breasts, some degree of numbness and itching as the wounds heal. Complications which can occur might be bleeding, infection, skin loss or poor healing, Some degree of asymmetry is almost invariably present afterwards, but in the vast majority of cases this is mild and perfectly acceptable. Most complications, if they occur, are usually minor and do not necessitate a return to the operating theatre.
There will be a inverted T shape scar which gradually becomes less noticable over six to twelve months after surgery.
Loss of sensation due to nerve damage, difficulty with milk production later on maybe encountered in one out of four patients undergoing breast reduction but are unusual with breast lifts.
The recovery period is about two to three weeks at which stage you can return to work. The breasts may be tender or numb for a few months after surgery. The effect of breast reduction and lifts are permanent and dramatic, but the breasts will continue to be subjected to the laws of gravity over many years to come.
