Asia Leads the World in Hairline Restorations

Asia performs the highest number of surgical hair restoration procedures of any region, racking up 102,702 operations in 2012, according to industry data (ISHRS). That’s more than Canada, South and Central America and Europe combined.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure performed to make the abdomen firmer. In the procedure, excess fat and skin from the lower and middle abdomen is removed to give it a toned appearance. The fascia and the muscles of the abdominal wall are also tightened.

It is not the same as a liposuction, though many patients choose to undergo a liposuction along with a tummy tuck. The procedure is mainly sought out by individuals who have developed loose folds of skin after a pregnancy or those who have undergone major weight loss. Abdominoplasty is a major surgery and patients should carefully weight their options before opting for this procedure.
