Gastric Band

Gastric band surgery is a form of weight loss surgery.  It can provide a solution to people who have not been able to lose weight through diet and exercise.  By making you feel full quicker, a gastric band encourages you to eat less.  Over time this leads to weight loss.

A gastric band is a band that is placed around the stomach, dividing it into two sections.  The first section fills quickly with food and makes you feel full.  Gradually, the food passes through into the second section of the stomach and is processed by the body as normal.

The band is fitted during keyhole surgery, which is far less invasive and does not result in the scarring associated with traditional surgery.  The band stays fitted for life, providing a long term weight loss solution.

Cosmetic Surgery

Liposuction and tummy tuck are both types of cosmetic surgery which are often confused with weight loss surgery, although neither should be considered to be a method of weight loss.  In order to get the best results from any kind of cosmetic surgery, you should already be at your ideal weight.

Liposuction involves removing fat through small holes in the skin, producing a slimmer look.  It can be used when you are at your ideal weight but still have stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise.  Liposuction can be combined with laser treatment in order to provide a more effective, less invasive procedure by liquefying the fat, making it easier to remove.

A tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure designed to tackle loose skin around the abdomen.  Often a result of weight loss, either through diet and exercise, gastric band surgery or after pregnancy, loose skin can be cut away in order to provide a smooth, taught look.  Tummy tuck surgery is often combined with liposuction when loose skin is accompanied by stubborn fat.

With every new year comes new year’s resolutions, and the number one resolution this year is to lose weight, of the prime reasons that people choose to seek plastic surgery.

The majority of people choosing to lose weight will first try altering their diet and exercise habits, and with persistence this can help reduce excess fat.  For a variety of reasons however, 95% of diets fail, and for those who are obese, exercising can be dangerous.  For people with a BMI of over 35 who find themselves in these circumstances, a gastric band may provide a solution.

Those who have managed to lose weight, either through diet and exercise or having a gastric band fitted, can find that although they are pleased with the results of their weight loss, they find themselves with aspects they wish to improve, such as saggy skin, stubborn areas of fat, drooping breasts and wrinkles.  There are cosmetic surgery procedures intended to combat each of these problems, referred to under the umbrella term of ‘body contouring’ surgery. Liposuction, tummy tuck and breast uplift can all be considered as ‘body contouring’ procedures.

It is important to understand that cosmetic surgery such as liposuction and tummy tuck are not weight loss solutions, and will only provide optimum results if carried out on someone already at their ideal weight.

‘Body contouring’ is an increasingly popular phrase, but what does it mean?

‘Body contouring’ refers to a group of cosmetic surgery procedures including liposuction, tummy tuck, breast reduction and various types of lifts such as thigh and arm lifts.  These plastic surgery procedures are employed in ‘contouring’ the body to achieve a pleasing, toned appearance.

Body contouring surgery is often sought after weight loss such as after pregnancy or weight loss, either through dieting and exercise or bariatric surgery such as a gastric band or gastric bypass.  People who lose weight through surgery such as a gastric band are more likely to seek ‘body contouring’ liposuction or tummy tuck as they are more likely to have been much larger before losing weight; Diet and exercise can be dangerous for people who are morbidly obese.  Gastric band surgery helps obese people lose weight by making them feel full sooner than they would otherwise.  It does this by reducing the capacity of the stomach.

Massive weight loss can lead to loose or saggy skin which had previously been stretched or stubborn areas of fat.  This is when body contouring liposuction, tummy tuck and other cosmetic surgery procedures can help.

The UK government recently revealed plans to impose 20% VAT on cosmetic surgery such as breast enlargement, liposuction and tummy tuck.  Some within the UK cosmetic surgery industry are concerned that this could lead to an increase in people travelling abroad for plastic surgery.

Many people from the UK already travel to mainland Europe in search of lower tummy tuck, liposuction and other plastic surgery and gastric band prices, which have been reported as being as much as 80% cheaper in some cases, although the average saving is around 20%.  Due to the medical nature of gastric band surgery, this will remain unaffected by the change in tax law.

As well as offering lower prices, medical regulations in many European countries are actually tighter than here in the UK and Europe offers some world class facilities.  The lower cost of living means that high quality services can be found at a fraction of the cost of those on offer closer to home.

The UK government claims that it is simply clarifying the fact that VAT should be paid on non-essential medical plastic surgery.

There is quite a bit of confusion about weight loss surgery, plastic surgery and the difference between the two.

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery such as a gastric band helps you to lose weight by changing your eating habits.  In the case of a gastric band, this is achieved by placing a band around the stomach through keyhole surgery.  This restricts food intake and creates a feeling of fullness, discouraging any further eating.  Gastric band and other weight loss surgery does not provide an instant result but enables a change in eating behaviour, resulting in a long term solution to excess weight.

Cosmetic Surgery

Plastic surgery such as liposuction and tummy tuck procedures are often confused with true weight loss surgery such as a gastric band.  Both tummy tuck and liposuction are in fact, cosmetic surgery procedures, which means they provide an aesthetic improvement rather than reduce weight.  In order to get the best results from any cosmetic surgery the subject should be at their ideal weight.  If a tummy tuck is performed on someone who then goes on to lose weight, the tightness of skin achieved through having a tummy tuck will be lessened.  Cosmetic surgery such as liposuction and tummy tuck provide instant results.

The recent inquest into the tragic death of a little boy in Ireland as reported in the Irish Times is a sharp reminder of the responsibility of both blind manufacturers and retailers.

As we are both a manufacturer and retailer its a regular consideration for us not only in our marketing but in the face to face interaction with customers. As a company locally in Manchester we offer all our customers the choice of having child safety locks fitted with every blind. You will be shocked to hear that only a small percentage agree to have them fitted. Considering the aesthetic and practical quality of the child safety locks its even more surprising.

Almost every blind is made with some sort of loop, sometimes two in the case of vertical blinds and with politicians becoming more vocal in their attempts to ban any type of blinds from having any sort of looped cord to operate it the major suppliers have been putting more energy into developing safety fixings for the cords that most importantly prevent the loops from hanging free but also don’t take away the design or style of the blind.

Other types of blinds such as roller blinds, venetian blinds, wooden blinds and roman blinds due to the nature of the fairly complicated cording required is solved by using cord cleats to wrap the cord up after use. Personally i don’t think re-designing blinds to have hoop-less cords is necessary. A legal requirement to ensure that every blind supplied has a child safety fixing supplied will be just as effective.

As a industry we hope and pray that these simple but effective solutions result in no more of these tragic incidents.

All our blinds are now sent out with the Child Safety fixings free of charge.

Unfortunately, many of the qualities that attract you to motorbikes are decidedly bad for you in the event of an accident. Motorbike accidents can be very severe and the rider can end up with significant and even life-threatening injuries.

Accident

accident in a car. This can lead to a long time recovery time and a fortune in lost income. You insurance will probably pay for the repairs to your bike, but it will not cover all of your losses.

Solicitors
If you receive an injury in a motorbike crash then you think about pursuing legal action against the other driver. For this, an experienced
motorcycle accident injury claim solicitors will be able to give you the top-quality legal advice that you need to make a claim.

No Win No Fee
Many
personal injury lawyers will act on your behalf in a motorcycle injury claim on a no win no fee basis. This means that they will receive a percentage of your award if your case is successful. In case you lose, they will have an insurance policy that will compensate the solicitors for their time.

Investigate
Your solicitor will often investigate your accident before taking it further. This might include speaking to witnesses and obtaining copies of any police reports. This will allow them to make the best possible claim on your behalf or advise you if your case is likely to lose.

A specialist motorbike injury claim lawyer is the best person to work on your behalf if you are unlucky enough to receive an injury in an accident. They will work hard on your behalf to get you the best possible compensation and have the specialist knowledge and experience that you need to get the result that you want.

A tummy tuck is a from of plastic surgery, or cosmetic surgery, which removes excess skin.  After losing a great deal of weight, some people find they are left with excess skin due to stretching.  This is when tummy tuck surgery is appropriate.
How A Gastric Band Works.

A gastric band works by giving you the sensation of satiety, or feeling full.  This reduction in the sensation of hunger makes it easier to eat less and reduce weight.

The biggest trends in cosmetic and plastic surgery field for 2011-2012 according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASPAS).

Like any other field, the world of cosmetic surgery, surgeons and beauty clinics offering plastic and aesthetic surgery depend on trends in the field of beauty, body treatments, and the general culture of society which it operates and in addition to this, a non-negligible, the economy. In other words, plastic surgery depends on the criteria of beauty demanded by society and the collective conscience (we discuss this later).
We present the interventions aesthetic surgical and nonsurgical those will be most in demand over next year according to a study by the ASAPS. So here are the key trends that we believe will be dominant in 2011 and 2012 in the world of plastic surgery.

So here are the key trends that we believe will be dominant in 2011 and 2012 in the world of plastic surgery.

  • According ASPAS the recovery of the economy which continues to improve will increase demands for face lift and other technique of rejuvenation without surgical procedure. Furthermore, given the flourishing economy, people who decide not to proceed with an intervention in 2010, will be tempted in 2011 to 2012.
  • Cosmetic injections have also increasingly popular. In recent years, these various products (e.g.: Botox, Dysport, Sculptra, Radiesse, Evolence, Juvederm, etc.). Have changed a lot and the results are more convincing.
  • Earlier, we mentioned that the collective consciousness of society influenced many choices and decisions of individuals. From this perspective, people are becoming more conscious of the dangers of obesity and many people will turn to plastic surgery for body contouring after significant weight loss. The demand for surgical procedures such as abdominoplasty and body lifts will be more important in 2011 and 2012 compared to previous years.
  • Our aging population has also influenced the trends in cosmetic surgery. Indeed, the women of the baby boomer generation are aging as well as their breast implants. Over the years, women with older implants will replace and the other will opt for a breast lift.
  • Liposuction (lipoplasty) is a standard in the field of fat reduction, however, non-invasive experimental techniques (freezing, zapping, lasering, etc.) are created and more and more patients try them. These techniques may become a substitute or a complement to liposuction.
  • To meet the growing demand in the field of ​​non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures, surgeons and manufacturers are working to develop new techniques and products that advance the science, produce better results and shorter recovery time.
  • You remember that we talk about standards of beauty in society earlier in this article? Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel and Fergie have a shapely rear-end that has become legendary over time. In 2011, the number of interventions related to the buttocks will increase significantly. Patients will opt for posterior body lifts, buttock lifts, etc. to augment and shape their buttocks.
  • The trend also wants that people are looking for bargains on aesthetic and plastic surgeries which will be the cause of professional errors and horror stories due to discount injections. In addition, skills will be more diffuse, there will be more people who claim to be plastic surgeon, but will not have the skills and training necessary.
