How can an underweight 21 year old trying to gain weight and get in shape lose excess chin and neck fat, and define the jawline?

How can an underweight 21 year old trying to gain weight and get in shape lose excess chin and neck fat, and define the jawline?

Fat distribution: Nobody really understands why different people lay down fat in different places or what we can do about it. This would be a great time for you to continue working out hard in the gym; as you pound your body into shape with resistance and aerobic training, your jawline may normalize but you'll surely look great. No body is perfect but you'll have a big plus. ...Read more

My head feels constantly thick, its been going on for 2 months. Also feels lame at the back of my head and neck but then moves arond?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity at tolerated.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I weigh 170, but the feeling of fat around my jaw, chin, neck is bad. Even through exercise I cannot get rid of the feeling. Is this a normal feeling?

No, it's not: You really need to talk these things through w/ a therapist and try to understand how much they can damage your quality of life. It's not a simple statement - you need to consider a few different things. Only an expert diagnostician can figure out the nature of such mistaken ideas in each case - you might have a thought disorder of some sort. Have an evaluation and follow treatment recommendations ...Read more

Can tumescent liposuction be done in conjunction with a face lift? I want to have a face lift, but I also have a lot of fat under my chin. Can I have tumescent liposuction for the neck fat at the same time as the face lift? .

Can tumescent liposuction be done in conjunction with a face lift? I want to have a face lift, but I also have a lot of fat under my chin. Can I have tumescent liposuction for the neck fat at the same time as the face lift? .

Yes.: Tumescent liposuction is commonly done in conjunction with a face lift, especially if your neck only has fatty prominence and lacks droopy skin and muscle. With good skin elasticity female neck skin can tighten and lift a surprising amount without a neck lift be performed. The image is of a patient who underwent tumescent liposuction and placement of a chin implant to improve her contour. ...Read more

My head is itchy lots! I found 1 dead bug combing through my thick curly long hair. It was long and skinny. I have a rash on the neck. What bug?

Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www. Ridlice. Com/lice-killing-shampoo. Php), AND you need to properly wash and/or dispose of linens, stuffed animals, blankets, etc. ...Read more

I: I suggest you make an appointment with the doctor who ordered the pet scan to review the images and adults with him or her. Ctac stands for "attenuation correction ct". This is ct, or computed tomography part of the combined pet/ct scan. It is what show the anatomy meaning all the organs and structures in the body. The 3.75 just means how thick the cat scan slices are. Unless a special kind of pet/ct dcan was done specifically to evaluate for a brain tumor, it is actually quite rare for brain tumors to show up on regular pet scans and they are usually not easily seen on the ct component of the scan alone, especially if no IV contrast dye aw given in addition to the pet scan sugar tracer. ...Read more
