Surgical Options After Excessive Weight Loss

When you lose a large amount of weight, you want to show off your body and let others know that you feel great about yourself. Many people who are overweight dream about walking into their high school reunions or seeing people they haven’t see in years and seeing jaws drop. They often do not realize that losing a large amount of weight in a fast period of time can have some side effects though. Cosmetic surgery Durham NC offer procedures designed for people just like you that can help you get the rocking body you want.

Excess Skin Removal

One problem associated with weight loss is that once you lose the weight, the excess skin has nowhere to go. The same skin that held all your extra weight will now look flabby and sag down so low that you have a hard time getting undressed in front of another person. Excess skin removal surgeries allow surgeons to remove that excess skin and give you the smooth and tight look that you want without any scarring. These procedures are suitable for use anywhere on your body and work particularly well on the stomach and lower body.

Chin Tuck

Even after losing dozens of pounds, you may find that your chin still looks plump. This can occur because of age and because of genetic factors. A chin tuck can make you look years younger because it removes the excess fat from your chin and makes it look both tighter and smoother. A similar procedure works wonders on your neck. You can actually schedule an appointment to have both procedures done at the same time to transform your look and to spend less time in recovery.

Breast Lift

The size of your breasts often relates to your overall weight and size. Women who weigh more are more likely to have larger breasts than women who weigh less. After losing weight, you need to get a bra fitting done to determine if you wear a different size now. Many women who lose a large amount of weight find that their breasts begin sagging. Getting a breast lift lets you get the great breasts that you always wanted and will lift your breasts up higher. You may opt for a breast enlargement too. Any of these cosmetic procedures will help you take pride in your appearance after losing weight.

Licealiz battles head lice infestation in Mindanao with Kilusang Kontra Kuto

About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice-related problems. Head lice infestation or pediculosis can cause severe itchiness and infection of the scalp, but this could be the least of these children’s worries; the social stigma associated with having kuto can leave lasting psychological damage on both children and their parents.

A survey of communities visited by the Licealiz caravan last year found that 47% of respondents from Visayas and 76% of respondents from Mindanao said that their children were bullied and teased for having head lice, causing some of them to miss school to avoid their peers. The parents, on the other hand, feel incompetent and embarrassed for being unable to prevent head lice from infesting their children.

In response to this, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo launched Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as a part of its Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. The caravan was launched in partnership with the Department of Education, University of the Philippines Manila College of Public Health and Mommy Bloggers Philippines with the goal of traveling to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.

Lamoiyan Corporation is set to end the year with 30 public schools visited and over 8,000 children shampooed.


The Kilusang Kontra Kuto visits Ayala Central School in Zamboanga City for Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto.

“We want to remove the stigma associated with having kuto by educating communities on lice infestation issues,” said Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Bing Cavestany. “We want to drive home the message that everyone can be potentially infested by kuto, that it’s not something to be ashamed about, and definitely not something to ridicule others for. We also hope to encourage these communities to unite and take action to solve this public health problem together,” shared Cavestany.

Licealiz invites everyone to join the Kilusang Kontra Kuto in changing the public’s perception about head lice infestation and spreading correct information regarding head lice prevention and treatment.

NEVER LET LOSE A STRAND OF YOUR PATIENCE

Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.
Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.


Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.
• Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.
• Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
• Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
• Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.
Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.


Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.
Tip 1: The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.
Tip 2: Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.
Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.
Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.
NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit www.novuhair.com
