During the month of December there’s a good chance you’ll be attending a number of holiday-related occasions. From after-work cocktails and weekend brunches to gatherings with friends and family, this is the time of year when everyone wants to look their best. It’s also typically a time of overindulgence in good things to eat, alcoholic drinks and fewer hours of sleep. At times like this, taking care of yourself can fall toward the bottom of the personal to-do list.
Bumps and bruises, cuts and scrapes. These are a natural part of life. Occasionally when damage occurs this can turn into an unsightly scar. By the time we become adults, we have a number of scars that mark milestone events in our life such as having chicken pox, learning to ride a bike, and falling off playground equipment. When you’re young, these marks seem like a regular part of childhood, but later in life these scars can become something we’d like to make less visible.
Breast augmentation is something many of us may have considered at one time or another. For some, the idea occurs when breasts don’t develop as fully as we may like.

In these cases, the best option might be liposuction, which removes excess fat and offers the added bonus of reshaping and slimming the body.
