Are There Any Exercises That Can Tighten Extra Skin
I wish...: ...That any of the myriad of creams advertised for treatment of stretch marks actually worked, but they don't. There is some anecdotal evidence that Retin-A cream might work for some people. Keep in mind that collagen grows very slowly, so any treatment will take a year or more to see measurable improvement. One type of laser may work on purple stretch marks, but that gets expensive. ...Read more

Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more
Lip reduction: For patients with lips that are too full, a lip reduction can be performed. This is a procedure that can even be done in the office with no external scars.
