Introducing SculpSure – the new enemy of stubborn fat

It’s an established (and depressing) fact that there are pockets of stubborn fat on our bodies that are extremely difficult to get rid of, no matter how many hours you put in at the gym. The reason for this is that while fats get broken down during exercise, they get dissipated throughout the body. In other words, you can target muscle development on whatever area you like, but you can’t target the fat in your least likable bits. What can be done about stubborn fat?

But she’s certainly the only one who’s having her appearance pulled apart and argued over on social media. As the mature woman of the team, is that surprising – or fair? The team here at Dr Joney De...

Government to ‘name and shame’ substandard cosmetic clinics

It looks like the dodgy cosmetic practices in the UK could be drinking in the Last Chance Saloon, if new British laws come into effect. The Department of Health have proposed an expansion to the ratings system that the NHS uses for hospitals, with the aim of giving the general public a rough guide to the quality of cosmetic surgeons in their area. This proposal has already been cautiously welcomed by industry authorities – although some would like them to clamp down even harder. “We welcome – and indeed, have been calling for during the last decade – as much government scrutiny as is possible of the cosmetic sector,” said Douglas McGeorge, the former president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. “This is an arena where regulation has historically been lax and many practitioners can engage in procedures they are not trained or even qualified to perform.” Grading...
