Q: I am 65, fit and healthy and have finally plucked up the courage to do something about my uncomfortably large boobs. But am I too old to go through this now? A: You’re not! Mr Dan Marsh, plastic surgeon at London’s Plastic Surgery Group(theplasticsurgerygroup. co.uk) says that if you’re fit (and intend to maintain a healthy lifestyle), a non-smoker, not on blood-thinners and not overweight (he won’t treat patients with a BMI over 30 as it poses a higher risk of complications such as slower wound healing), you’re a great candidate. An anonymous reader asked British beauty expert Inge van Lotringen for advice on reducing the size of her breasts (file image) In fact, he says, older patients tend to make better scars as their skin is thinner, plus the breasts are unlikely to grow again and stretch the skin.

You have to hand it to them. WAGs are the gift that so brilliantly, so reliably, keeps on giving. There couldn't be a better time for Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy to wage war. We're all desperate for a bit of escapism and this is a blockbuster. Particularly joyous is the way Coleen posted a trail of fake stories on her private Instagram account while increasingly blocking followers to finally deduce who alone would be in a position to leak them. I wonder who came up with that idea?

From dairy intolerance to gluten allergies, our dogs can get the same tummy troubles as we do ‘Different dogs require different nutrients,’ explains Dr Lucy Williamson a registered nutritionist who discovered the … [Read more...] about DOGliciously Ella!
