How do you get rid of trembling hands while in surgery?

How do you get rid of trembling hands while in surgery?

Difficult: Most surgeons have very steady hands. It's like fighter pilots; can't do the job unless you meet the criteria. In surgery though, the base of the hand can be rested or steadied on the patient or one instrument steadied against another. The robot now takes out the tremor for the most part or at least makes it insignificant. ...Read more

Why do i get nail fungus problems on my feet and whats the best product to buy to get rid of it once and for all? it started after my knee surgery.

See a dermatologist: Begin with diagnosis. It might be something other than fungus. If it is fungus it may be acceptable to merely keep the nails trimmed and ventilated. By far the best treatment, about 60% effective, is terbinafine. It is a prescription taken daily for 3 months. Originally a $1200 prescription, the generic is now $10! It takes a year to grow a new, normal nail after taking the med. You have other is ...Read more

Can surgery on my tigh get rid of my stretch marks?

Can surgery on my tigh get rid of my stretch marks?

Probably not: Unless you lost a significant amount of weight and then had a skin reduction surgery that removed the area with strech marks. 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. If these strecthmarks are from a pregnancy, just wear your 'Tiger Mom Stripes' with pride, they are beautiful! ...Read more

I have a lots of stretch marks on me i dont like them on me. So what can i do to get rid of them? I dont have money for expensive  surgery stuff...

Simplest answer.: Almost all post pubescent females and some males have stretch marks. The simplest thing to do is just be OK with the fact that you don't look like a photoshopped (read:fake) made-up human being. You look the way NORMAL human beings look. Stretch marks fade over time. If you don't like the way they look either dress in a way that covers them or use body make-up. Even models on the runway use it. :) ...Read more

What is the best solution to get rid of a medium indention mark on nose...Is plastic surgery the best or only option?

What is the best solution to get rid of a medium indention mark on nose...Is plastic surgery the best or only option?

Not necessarily: Small irregularities on the nose (and face) can often be treated most effectively and efficiently with injection of a filler such as Restylane (dermal fillers) or juvederm. Though these are temporary, they will tend to last for 6-12 months in the nose, can be injected in the office with local anesthesia, and do not require an operating room. Surgery can always be an option, but i would try the fillers first. ...Read more
