The Pros and Cons of Body Contouring

by , in
Body Contouring

Have you ever wanted to remove shapeless skin and firm your body? If so, you may be a candidate for body contouring. You may be wondering, "What is body contouring?" Well, body contouring, also known as body shaping, is an alternative way to annihilate stubborn fat and tighten the body's skin when dieting and exercise just won't work.

There are several types of contouring and those are: an arm lift, buttock lift, liposuction and tummy tuck. An arm lift is called a brachioplasty. This procedure is intended to rid a person of saggy skin and is an outpatient surgery. A butt lift is a technique that is designed to add synchronization to a person's overall body and can make a person's derriere rounder, firm and fuller. Liposuction is one of the most renowned forms of Nu Cosmetic body contouring. Liposuction removes the lumps and bumps of fat that are directly underneath a person's skin and can help a person achieve their ideal body type. A tummy tuck removes fat and skin from the abdomen and rids a person of unwanted love handles, revealing a more svelte appearance.

Ideal candidates for most types of body contouring are those whom have had major weight loss surgery, women who have been pregnant and lost elasticity and for those whom want to make their aging body look more youthful.

Pros: Getting a body contouring procedure done can give a person a better self-esteem and feeling of self-confidence. Another benefit of having a body shaping procedure is a better, more fit looking physique.

Cons: Since most health insurance companies do not cover this kind of procedure, cost is one of the few cons. Some procedures may start as low as $4,000 while other body shaping surgeries can be well over $30,000. Since body contouring is considered an elective surgery it is usually not covered by most health insurance companies. Another con are complications that may happen during or after a surgical body contouring procedure. Some of the complications of the surgery can be puckering of the skin, infection, loss of skin sensitivity and tissue necrosis. Recovery time is also a con; it can take 4-6 weeks, or even longer, to fully recover after a body contouring procedure.

There are several benefits and a few cons that need to be taken into consideration when deciding to have a body shaping procedure. Discuss with your health care provider whether body contouring may be right for you.

Ina, Ama, Anak (The Latest Updates on Gabby, KC and Sharon)

by , in


After Sharon jumped to the Kapatid network (TV5), much has been heard and also seen about her. Shows popped up one after the other and the latest of which was Sharon, Kasamo Mo Kapatid. The show aired its last episode last January 13, 2013.

Rumors spread after Sharon’s talk show ended. It was said that Sharon wants to go back to the Kapamilya network but Perci Intalan, vice president for TV5’s Creative and Entertainment Production strongly expressed his opposition to such rumor. He further elaborated that it is unfair to Sharon if we just let the rumors spread that she is showing some signs that she wants to go back to her previous network. Also, he added that any network would love to work with Sharon because she is Sharon Cuneta.

Sharon still has a contract at TV5 up to 2016 as she has signed a five-year contract. Intalan then adds that as soon as Sharon arrives from abroad, the management will be talking to her formally to discuss some upcoming projects.

I love to shop online.

But what I usually buy are services such domain renewals, hosting, spa treatment, dental care, hair and nails treatments and the like.

I like to see the product personally to check if there are defects or anything. But if you are given coupon to shop online I will not surely miss that chance to have my first shopping experience of buying a product. Thanks to Lazada for this.

My experience of buying their product is hassle free. After choosing an item to buy, I just entered the coupon code and proceed to the check-out. See image below (click to enlarge)

UPDATED: Make Money Online from LoudLaunch

by , in
LoudLaunch is another website where you can make money from blogging. I've been a member of this site since 2008 but I just ignore their emails that time because I've been receiving a lot of opportunities from other Get Paid to Blog sites. 

But last week, when an email came in for a new task - I thought to myself to why not give LoudLaunch a try.   Just one blog post to verify if they are legit or not. 

And so I did. 

Their process is kinda different because you will need to submit your article (not live post) to them first for review. Once you received an approval that's the time that you are going to publish it on your blog. They will only give you 2 days to finish the task. But the good thing is, it only took 1 day for me to be paid. Unlike other sites, you will need to wait for 2 weeks to be paid or accumulate certain amount to be paid.

Safety as Premier Feature for Technology-Advanced Cars

by , in
Technology is evolving and it only proves that the “only thing constant in this world is change.” Like computers, phones, home appliances and now cars are being innovated and improved into something which may be impossible or just a fruit of human imagination in the past. Through technological advancements, everything has been made easy for man.

Mass production future car models would still depend on the market or the customers. But if what technology brings would be more beneficial and will help people get away from accidents then, this would make way to its high demand in the future.


Safety while riding a car is every family’s priority. Before any travel, you would surely check if the engine and the whole unit is in good condition especially when you are up for a long drive.

Related to innovations, cars would soon have built-in camera and computer systems which could read and detect highway markings then, it would warn the driver through a sound if the vehicle is somewhat drifting. This could help drowsy drivers from meeting an accident. It is a known fact that drowsy driving is one of the main causes of road accidents the world over.

The process involves a power steering which could be controlled by the earlier mentioned built-in camera and computer system. If the system has detected that the car is drifting outside the normal parameters, it would automatically take control.

Cars: The New Generation Fashion Outlets

Priority 1 Cars, Priority 1 Automotive

The history of cars, fashion and culture is somewhat interweaved because all of these point out to someone who is primarily involved with it – man. Along with man’s development is the change of his taste, style and way of life. Also, they have different reasons in owning a car.

In the present society, cars are being used as status symbols. In fact, some people would say that if you have a car, you have achieved much and is financially stable. The connotation may be wrong but it is the way the people of today are thinking. Luxury cars are but profound examples of this connotation that people associate with cars nowadays.

On the other hand, some people do not consider cars as forms of luxury but a means from which they could express their sense of style. Like dresses and accessories, this would in a way become a new form of self-expression made through cars. This could be another way people also can see the owner’s characteristics and aspirations as a person. Even the simplest model of a car, though not the latest, can be made into a something which best represents the person who owns it.

Engraved Compact Mirrors as Personalised Gifts for Valentines

by , in
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us! The day to express our love and affection is nigh. I remember when I used to have mixed emotions when it came to Valentine’s Day. I love the occasion when everyone tends to get all mushy and cheesy and love is expressed beyond hugs and “I love yous”. Valentine’s Day is the day when love gets “transformed” somehow from gushy sentiments to little tokens or expressive mementoes…gifts.

Engraved Compact Mirrors, Valentines Day Gifts, Personalized Gifts

Valentine’s Day is pleasant enough but if you are anything like me, it’s the thinking-what-to-give part that really drives me nuts. I used to have annual debates with myself on whether I should get the convenient and usual flower and chocolate tandem; or if I should send fruit-flower baskets. The thing is, gifts like these are impersonal and cold. I felt like sending flowers and chocolates are too predictable and easy. I also felt horrible sending my loved ones fruit, flower or wine baskets – it would feel like company giveaways rather than my Valentine present.

This is where I stumbled upon the coolest Valentine gift ever: engraved compact mirrors. Engraved compact mirrors are unique, one of a kind gifts you can give instead of the usual, boring, run – of - the mill flowers or chocolates. They are practical, handy and useful gifts for anyone. They’re not gender specific, so they make perfect gifts for mom or dad, sis or bro or even for that special someone! Best of all, engraved compact mirrors can be personalised. You can set your message on the compact mirror of your choice to make your gift extra special. The engraved message will surely let your loved ones know that the gift was meant just for them and no one else.
