Would a torsoplasty give me a smoother shape than a lower body lift? My abdomen, thighs and hips all have loose, sagging skin, and I have very little muscle tone in my stomach area. I've recently lost over 100 pounds, and exercise isn't tightening everyth
Wonderful: Wonderful that you have been able to lose so much weight. Your question is difficult to answer without an exam or at least photos. A lower body lift generally will improve the buttocks and upper and inner thighs and less so the abdomen. I find that the abdominal area will usually be best approached with a circumferential abdominoplasty that will also help the buttocks and upper outer thighs to some degree. Most massive weight loss patients need several operations over time to achieve the very best results. ...Read more

I massaged my SMC muscle not for very long a half a minute but read that if touched the cartiod artieries it can cause a stroke? Is that true?
Carotid arteries: Two adverse reactions can occur if you significantly compress a carotid artery. One is stimulating the vagus nerve which can slow the heart rate and cause low blood pressure and fainting. The other is interfering with blood flow to the brain, but this usually also requires a plaque buildup in the artery. It's not a good idea to mess with the carotid artery, but your very gentle massage did no harm ...Read more
