Exfoliating your skin can be a healthy way to remove dead skin cells and reveal healthy skin. However, as with most things in life, too much of a good thing can become unhealthy.

Tummy Tuck Surgery
A Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, as a procedure that removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened or separated muscles creating a rejuvenated abdominal profile. Due to causes such as aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgery, or weight fluctuation some people with normal body weight and proportion may develop sagging, loose or bulging abdomens. In some cases, despite an individual’s best efforts, diet and exercise alone will not result in the abdomen they strive to have.
A tummy tuck involves tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall with removal of excess skin and fat from the mid and lower abdominal area. There are multiple types of tummy tucks such as complete, partial, extended, high lateral tension, floating, circumferential, and also many combinations.
