When A Plain Nose On Your Face Is Not What You Desire

byAlma Abell

People in the West are often referred to as the ‘big noses’ by those in the Orient. It’s simply a part of the Occidental appearance that noses are often prominent with a high bridge. Unfortunately, the common accepted idea of beauty is for a well-formed but delicate nose. Men obviously tend to have larger noses than women, and one of the worst things that a girl can be told is that ‘you unfortunately inherited your father’s nose’.


A nose is not something you can ignore – it’s right there in the middle of your face and if it’s particularly large and unattractive, it could be something that causes you to lose confidence and feel insecure. It might not only be birth and genetics that have caused a problem with your nose as accidents that break the nose can also cause unsightly lumps or kinks. If this is true for you, you should investigate the possible of having cosmetic surgery known as rhinoplasty.

Factors to consider before having your nose altered

Your nose should always complement your face. Thus, even though you might want a tiny, delicate nose of minute proportions, if you have a wide face with large features, this might actually call even more attention to your nose. If you consult with experts in this field, you will find that they consider rhinoplasty an art as much as a science. Their aim is to give you an excellent ‘nose job’ that will increase your esteem and will make your face much more attractive. This will take time and consultation, and most surgeons will be able to give you graphic illustrations of different procedures and how these will look on your face. Should you find a surgeon who wants to operate immediately without taking this time to discuss all the various suggested changes and how the outcome will look, the chances are that you should look for a different doctor.

Finding a good rhinoplasty surgeon in Chicago

It’s essential that you find a board-certified surgeon with an excellent track record of satisfied clients. Unless you want to end up on a television show for a procedure that has gone horribly wrong, don’t consider working with anyone who offers a cut-rate or who has anything less than state-of-the-art training and equipment. A practice such as Chicagoland Aesthetics has the most modern techniques and highly trained, extremely competent surgeons. When you consider that rhinoplasty is a complicated procedure that has the potential to give you the appearance that you’ve always dreamed of, this is a time to work with only the most skilled of surgeons.

Stationary Bike Workouts 4 Tips For Faster Progress

By Alan Bullington

Many kinds of exercise produce good results if you wish to lose fat and get in shape. If you just look at an exercise machine as a tool, then the bikes offer advantages. For one, a home machine sits right there ready to go at any time. That means there is no trip required to a gym or club before you see results. A bike at home lets you spend more time exercising and less time in travelling or other wastes of time and energy. A recumbent or a dual action exercise bike makes especially good sense as a home exercise machine. Read on to find out more.

Mix It Up Or Else

What stops many stationary bike programs. This is just a guess but likely a good one. It’s boredom, pure and simple. Nothing quite matches the boredom of pedaling a bike at a steady pace for long periods of time. That’s why you need help to break the boring monotony. Many bikes now do just that with quiet magnetic drives and powerful computers.

That produces simulated rides that feel much like a real road trip. By varying resistance automatically the best bikes ride like a real trip. That keeps the pedaling more interesting and less boring. That’s one way to keep you pedaling and that’s key to progress.


More Bike Time Means More Results

Interesting rides keeps you going but so does comfort. That’s why many exercise bike riders favor recumbent exercise bikes. The bikes that put you in a reclining position make back pain less common and also make it easier to get on and off the machine even if the rider is injured and in rehab. Whatever makes it more comfortable to ride as well as more convenient adds to more time in the saddle and faster fitness progress. That’s why the premium is on bike comfort. It’s not so much to avoid pain as it is to permit more and better workouts.

Cross Training From A Bike

Riding a stationary bike produces results partly because it works many muscles and particularly the larger muscles. That’s key to good progress both with losing weight and with getting more fit. But there’s more. Consider stepping off the bike at intervals and performing another exercise. For example, do weight training moves at intervals during a workout and make even faster progress. You can step off the bike and perform a lift and your heart will still remain at the fitness level even though you aren’t still pedaling.

By mixing up the exercise a bit you can fight boredom and progress faster as well.

Stationary bike workouts can produce fast results. To make the best progress, plan to spend more time on the bike. Choose a bike that’s fun to ride and not a pain and a boring trial. That means look for comfort and especially consider the seat design and construction. Also consider mixing in some other exercise to break up the pedaling and make fast gains even while you take pedaling breaks. Exercise bike workouts work perfectly as part of a circuit training routine for faster fitness and fat loss.

All About Laser Hair Removal

By David Riewe

Are you tired of constantly shaving and dealing with unwanted hair on your body? If so, laser hair removal just might be the thing for you! Of course, there might be a better option for you. Some of those options might be shaving, bleaching, tweezing or waxing. Each of these has their ups and downs but might be better for you.

Laser hair removals work by the beams of light they produce. They apply the laser device to your skin causing it to get hot. This heat damages the follicle and keeps it from growing in the future.

One of the requirements for laser hair removal is that your hair is darker than your skin. Laser hair removal is also not recommended for naturally dark people because too much laser energy is absorbed into their skin. If you tan it also recommended you do not have laser hair removal done. You can wait until your tan is gone and then proceed.

If you have light skin you can expect an easier laser hair removal procedure as well as fewer treatments with quicker results. If you are darker skinned it could take longer for results to show and you will have more treatments. Each person is different when being treated for something just the same as being treated for laser hair removal.

Most areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal. The most popular areas:


– Back

– Neck

– Legs

– Chest

– Bikini Line

– Face

– Underarms

– Upper Lip

– Abdomen

If you have a specific area you want done, talk to your local laser hair removal expert. If you are seriously considering laser hair removal you do not want to tan prior to having it done. The treatment will be less effective this way.

Laser hair removal is for women and men of all ages. Children can have it done granted they are old enough to cooperate. Laser hair removal is becoming more popular with men today. They are having their chests and backs done as well as their abdomen and sometimes face.

While laser hair removal is proven to be quite safe, there are still some cons to having the procedure. The main worry being who is giving you the treatment. If this person is not entirely qualified to perform this procedure, they could damage your skin. Be sure you know all about your professional performing this.

The cost of laser hair removal can be pricey but it really depends on your location. Every clinic is different so you want to contact a local clinic. Find out what their rates are and maybe even meet with a consultant to see if laser hair removal is right for you. You might think so just because you are tired of shaving. This may not be true though so it is better to consult a professional first.

As with any major procedure you might have done, do all your research on laser hair removal before making a final decision. If you do not get all the facts before committing to it, you might be disappointed in the end. You might not even be eligible for laser hair removal.

Make Breathing Fun Again With Playful Child &Amp; Pediatric Nebulizers

By Gary Gordon

Lung ailments do not discriminate for or against the young. Even children can suffer from asthma severe enough to warrant the use of child nebulizers. If you are a parent, you will want to find a product that is easy to use and one that will not frighten your child, and if you are a pediatrician you will need an effective child nebulizer to allow your patient to get the fullest benefit possible from the medications.

Nebulizers work by forcing air through a liquid medicine. This then is turned into a breathable vapor, which is inhaled through either a mouthpiece or a mask. Inhalation is the best method of taking these drugs since they target the lungs, and if taken in a pill form, they would have adverse effects on the body. A child nebulizer must be used according to the pediatrician’s instructions. If all of the medicine is not taken, the benefits of the drug are lessened or lost.


Most young patients are scared to use nebulizers for children. For the medication to work properly, though, it must be actively inhaled. This means that the parent cannot just blow the medicated vapors past a sleeping child. The patient himself must use either the mouthpiece or the mask that came with the child nebulizer. After taking the treatment, it is important that the parent rinses out the child’s mouth and the mouthpiece or mask. This helps to wash away any remnants of the drugs in the mouth and the bad aftertaste that can occur with many breathing treatments. Especially if the child nebulizer dispenses steroids, the mouth has to be washed since left over steroids can lead to thrush, which is a yeast infection of the mouth. If symptoms such as white patches or areas inside the mouth appear inflamed, contact your pediatrician. He can recommend the best treatment, but do not stop using the child nebulizer unless specifically instructed to do so. Thrush is common in most infants even if they at not using steroids and it often cause no pain for the child.

Many of child nebulizer customers are patient’s parents, or they are from clinics or small medical facilities. Often for these people, budgets are often extremely tight, but needs are very high.

A child with asthma or other breathing problems must have their drugs administered in the proper manner. There are several options for giving respiratory medications to children such as child nebulizers, metered dose inhalers (MDI), breath actuated inhalers, and dry powder inhalers (DPI). In many cases, the maintenance of their symptoms is accomplished through the use of daily administration of asthma drugs such as corticosteroids. Most children older than five can give themselves these drugs through one of the inhalers, but for the very young, or should a child not be able to properly use an inhaler, he will likely need a pediatric nebulizers to deliver the medication.

Child nebulizers turn the respiratory medicine into a mist, which the child then breaths for at least five to ten minutes. It might be difficult for parents to keep their child still for the entire length of treatment. This is why many nebulizers designed for children have some sort of interactive component to engage the child and keep his interest while he is doing the breathing treatment. Many models will have a pacifier attachment to soothe the infant, but if the nebulizer is being used by an older child who is unable to wield an inhaler, a pacifier is not an option. For these children, there are now child and pediatric nebulizers that come with a set of building blocks with the machine itself serving as the base for the interlocking blocks. This has a two fold benefit in that the child is engaged, and he will not simply take the blocks to the other side of the room since he must build on top of the block base on the nebulizer. As hard as it is to keep the child near the nebulizer, he must do so to receive the entire dose of his medicine on a daily basis.

Pediatric nebulizers are one of the most effective methods of giving very young children and infants their inhaled medications. Since the drug is turned into a mist, the amount of the drug required is higher than with an inhaler. This is to ensure that the child receives the full dosage to help treat and maintain his asthma symptoms. A child nebulizer should only be used if the child is too young for an inhaler. This is because of the higher concentration of the drug, and thus higher risk of side effects, as opposed to the inhaler. Nebulizers should never be shunned for this reason, though, since by taking asthma treatment drugs is the only way to control symptoms and potentially save the life of the child. The need for medication must always come first, no matter how it is administered.

Breast Augmentation Its Not About Vanity}

Breast Augmentation Its Not about Vanity


Mark Larson

This year some 364,000 women will voluntarily lie on a Plastic Surgeons table in order to undergo Breast Augmentation Surgery. Their reasons for doing so may seem obvious, but in truth, there might well be 364,000 distinct arguments as to why theyve opted to have the Breast Augmentation procedure done. For one woman its because she has never been satisfied with the size of her breasts. For another, its because her clothes have never fit her well. For yet another, one breast is clearly larger than the other and she is self-conscious about them.

Whatever their motivation, Breast Augmentation surgery has become one of the fastest growing and most popular procedures in the world of Plastic Surgery.

It would be easy to dismiss Breast Augmentation Surgery as vanity. After all, in todays beauty-obsessed world, youth, perfection and Plastic Surgery seem to go hand-in-hand. Younger and younger women are opting to change their bodies through Plastic Surgery. But to blame vanity would be over-simplifying things. The vast majority of women who go in for Breast Augmentation Surgery are not going to be walking any red carpets. Most patients find their way to a Plastic Surgeons office after years of feeling unhappy about that their breasts. Many, if not most, feel incomplete about their looks, as though the reality of their shape does not match the inner them. When this kind of disconnect happens between our emotional selves and our physical selves, Breast Augmentation Surgery can be the bridge that ties the two halves of us together.

Breast issues are tied inherently to a womans sense of femininity. After all, a womans breasts are not mere decoration. They serve a purpose. They feed our babies, and are admittedly useful when it comes to attracting the opposite sex. When a woman feels lacking in breast size or shape, or she finds herself avoiding mirrors; she often feels a lack of confidence about her femininity. Deciding to undergo Breast Augmentation Surgery is an extremely personal decision. Any Plastic Surgeon worth his or her salt will warn patients about both unrealistic expectations and about doing Breast Augmentation for someone besides themselves. In the end, you are the one going through surgery. You are the one taking risks. It must be for you that you do it.


Lets assume youve decided that Breast Augmentation is for you. There are a few things you should consider:

First, do your homework. Who will your Plastic Surgeon be? An experienced, board certified Plastic Surgeon with plenty of Breast Augmentation operations under his belt and great recommendations is the first order of business. Breast Augmentation surgery is not the place to choose the cheapest deal in town. This is serious surgery with possible complications. You want only the best working on you.

Second, what type of Breast Augmentation implant do you want? There are several choices. Saline implants are less controversial than silicone implants, which have been long suspected (but never proved) to have connection to autoimmune disorders. But despite the risks, silicone implants which are safe and approved by the FDA, beat the saline ones as the choice for Breast Augmentation almost 9 to 1. This is mostly because silicone tends to feel more natural and doesnt make any sloshing sounds. There is also a new kind of implant being tested in Breast Augmentation surgery called a cohesive gel implant, or The Gummy Bear implant. This implant is made of silicone but a solid type that feels like a Gummy Bear and doesnt leak if punctured.

The size and shape of your Breast Augmentation implants will be decided after a thorough conversation with your Plastic Surgeon, and you are clear with him exactly what you want to look like afterward. There are 20 different sizes of implants available, so you will definitely find one that suits you.

Third, if your breasts are sagging and need a lift, a Breast Augmentation surgery will not fix that. That may be a separate surgery or can be included when the Plastic Surgeon inserts the implants. Women who have lost weight, or finished nursing a child and have found their breasts have lost the shape they used to have should discuss with their doctor what the best Breast Augmentation procedure would be for them.

You and your doctor can discuss the three choices you have on where to place the incision to insert the implant during your Breast Augmentation surgery. A periarealor incision is made at the edge of the nipple or areola and is, perhaps the most common type of incision with no visible scarring while clothed. Likewise, an inframammory incision just under the fold of the breast is common and will not show a scar while clothed. A transaxillary incision, through the armpit will leave an imperceptible scar under the arm and the site cannot be used for subsequent surgeries like the others can. There are risks and scarring associated with all of these incisions and its important that you understand that up front. Your doctor can help you decide which one is right for you.

Perfection is not the goal of Breast Augmentation surgery. For most women, it is about feeling better about themselves. Ask to look at before and after pictures in your Plastic surgeons office to prepare yourself for whats coming. While it is a Plastic Surgeons job is to make the scars as unnoticeable as possible, there will be scars. Be realistic about your expectations. Your doctor will do his best to make your breasts look great. It will be up to you to begin feeling great about yourself again.

A facial massager is a straightforward device that works by applying a vibrating head to your face. Run it over your cheeks, around your eyes, along your chin – wherever you want a tone up. Known as facial acupressure, this method has long been integral to beauty routines in Asia.

A facial massager works by providing a natural facelift. You just run one of these battery-operated appliances over your face once a day to tone up your skin and facial muscles. The result is you get a firm face, blemishes fade and your skin reclaims its soft and smooth appearance.


These face massage routines work their magic in many ways.

They give a work out to your facial muscles helping them retain and regain their tone. Just run the device over your face to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, tighten and tone sagging skin, and help keep and get back that youthful bloom.

One of their most important effects of a face massaage is that of boosting blood circulation. This causes a surge in rejuvenating oxygen and nutrients flowing into your tissues. The result is a soft, glowing face.

If you’re fed up with the cruel marks that time etches on your face – the bags under your eyes, wrinkles, jowls, crow’s feet, turkey neck – you’ve perhaps considered botox or even cosmetic surgery. But before you take that serious decision look into face massage.

Just a few minutes a day in the comfort of your own home is all you need for a super facial workout. No need to pay a lot of money for risky cosmetic surgery.

And remember how much money you can save. As your own beautician, there’s no need to pay for those costly creams or beauty treatments.

You don’t need any equipment or chemicals. It’s an all-natural routine that works quickly. See results in under a week. Remember, the results of a facelift last for 7-10 years but a facial massag gives results without limits.

You’ll get a major boost to your self-confidence that results from knowing you look great again as well as from the admiring looks and requests for the name of your beautician.

So if your chin is multiplying alarmingly, or your frown lines are causing you great worry, or unsightly [url=]bags under your eyes[/url] are giving you a tired look, check out the easy, natural and low cost [url=]facial massager[/url].

Answers To Common Cosmetic Surgery Questions

Submitted by: Lloyd Krieger

As you explore your options for cosmetic surgery, you will likely have questions and concerns similar to other cosmetic surgery candidates. Before going forward with a cosmetic surgery procedure, you will have many issues to consider. Developing your understanding of cosmetic surgery is essential to making a well-informed decision about your body.

Five Common Questions About Cosmetic SurgeryWhat makes someone a good candidate for cosmetic surgery?

The answer to this question has several elements. Most importantly, you need to be in reasonably good health without any medical conditions that preclude you from undergoing an elective surgery. Next, you need to have realistic expectations about how cosmetic surgery will improve your appearance. You need to accept that your cosmetic surgery will change a feature of your body not change your body into someone else’s body. You need to approach cosmetic surgery with the goal of making yourself happier with your body and not expect other people to see or treat you differently.

How painful is cosmetic surgery?

Pain is limited or entirely avoided during a cosmetic surgery procedure with local or general anesthesia. During your recovery, however, you would typically experience a range of feelings from mild discomfort to some pain, which would be managed with pain medication. The extent of the cosmetic surgery will determine the potential for pain and the time it will take you to recover.

A tummy tuck, for example, is a cosmetic surgery that affects a larger portion of the body than a brow lift. You should also note that pain is typically controlled immediately after surgery with long lasting anesthetics at the surgery site. This process will ease you into recovery. Because of long-lasting local anesthetic commonly used during the procedure and pain medicines taken after the surgery, most people complain of very little pain.


What age should people be to get cosmetic surgery?

Although some procedures are only applicable to individuals approaching or experiencing middle age, such as a facelift, this does not mean that younger people never get cosmetic surgery. Younger people often get rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, or other procedures to change a body feature as opposed to alleviating the effects of aging. As long as you are over age 18, you can freely pursue cosmetic surgery, but it would be important for you to seriously consider your motivations and not change something about your body lightly.

What anesthesia is used during cosmetic surgery?

The type of cosmetic surgery you have generally determines the type of anesthesia used, but you can discuss your preferences with your cosmetic surgeon. For less-invasive procedures, a local anesthetic that blocks nerve impulses at the site of the surgery combined with a sedative to calm you would be used. General anesthesia, in which you are made completely unconscious and oblivious to pain, is necessary for more extensive surgeries.

Does insurance cover cosmetic surgery?

Usually medical insurance policies do not cover cosmetic surgery. It is an almost universal exemption from insurance coverage.

However, select policies may pay for plastic surgery costs if the surgery corrects a birth defect that interferes with healthy functioning or to repair the damage left by an injury. For example, there are nasal breathing difficulties that can be corrected with nose surgery, and your insurance policy may cover it. Examining your policy and checking with your insurance company are advised because you can never assume that insurance will cover a cosmetic procedure.

During a consultation for Los Angeles cosmetic surgery, it is important that you ask whatever questions you like and have all your concerns addressed. You will be investing time and expense into the process, and you need to make sure that you are comfortable with what will be happening.
