Is surgery the only way to get rid of a cyst?

As far as I know there is no way to surgically remove strech marks, and if tried you would most likely end up with surgical scars instead.

How do u get rid of a mans apron after losing weight other than surgery?

It won't "tighten back up". If the weight loss was intentional, though, then he is to be commended of losing it. ...Read more
