Exercise?: Although many individuals do promote the use of facial exercises to achieve a younger fuller face, I do not understand the purpose of these. Unlike the rest of your body, facial muscles do not generally achieve greater fullness with exercise. In fact, as a plastic surgeon, our goal is to weaken muscles with botox, rather than to strengthen them. ...Read more

Can I have a list of foods that will help me to raise my calcium levels, also can I take exercise with hampering my calcium levels.
Tums (calcium carbonate): The average person needs about 1 gram of calcium per day and two Tums (calcium carbonate) per day will provide this amount. The body usually readily absorbs calcium and specific types of food are inconsequential. Of course dairy products are full of calcium. The kidneys closely control calcium levels, and exercise will not interfere with this control. ...Read more

Low impact cardio: Aquatics, body weight, or resistance bands/ tubing biking, and/or elliptical. Aquatics allow you to perform body weight exercises, but being in water actually reduces the stress on your body due to buoyancy.

Can you please list the most common home exercises to lose weight on my stomach and flatten my chest down?
Cardio Mix: You can not target specific areas for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more

No joint movement: Iso is from the greek word meaning "same" and metric refers to length. So an isometric exercise is one in which there is a muscle contraction without a change in its length, ie the joint does not move. Flexing the biceps, for example, is an isometric exercise. Pinching & holding your shoulder blades together is a great example of a functional isometric exercise used to treat shoulder problems. ...Read more
