If you’re over 35 or 40, just about everyone has at least some degree of a stomach pooch. If you’re a mom and have had a couple children, it’s almost a certainty. Same is true if you’ve gained and then lost a good deal of weight. The skin and underlying muscles have been stretched to […]

Who Says Smile Lines are Funny?

The holidays are coming up faster than a Percy Harvin end around from the Gator past.

Sagging Breasts Can Make for Sagging Spirits

As we age, everything sags; it’s just a part of normal aging. But for a woman, one especially unwelcome area where sagging occurs is her breasts.
