As more consumers have become interested in neck liposuction, plastic surgeons have identified the best type of candidates and methods to improve results. People have become interested in neck liposuction for the following reasons.
Improve neck profile
Reduce the appearance of a double chin
Improve the appearance of neck lines and rolls
In the 1970’s, liposuction was used for neck enhancement in Europe. Later, lasers were used to leverage neck liposuction results. Simultaneously, the concern about skin elasticity arose. Today, the best candidates for neck liposuction today are those that have minimal loose skin and localized fat deposits. When such is not the case, a neck lift or combination neck lift and liposuction may be the optimal approach to treatment. Liposuction treatment itself does offer some skin retraction. The use of laser may also offer skin retraction. Skin retraction helps to provide skin firmness and prevent the appearance of loose skin. The combination may be the best approach for loose skin, but a neck lift may omit the need for laser.
During neck liposuction, small inconspicuous incisions will be made so that a cannula with vacuum suction apparatus may be inserted under the skin to break up and remove excess fat. A laser may be applied over specific treatment areas to leverage skin tightening. Yet, when both methods are expected to limit adequate skin tightening, the neck lift may be appropriate. Often times, instead of using a laser, the neck lift is performed.
The neck lift may involve small incisions at the base of the ears, extending behind the ears and possibly under the chin. The procedure is often performed in conjunction with a face lift procedure. However, it may be performed alone. During the neck lift procedure, underlying tissue and skin is tightened, possibly trimmed and sutured into a tightened position.
The advantages in both neck liposuction and neck lift procedures are that they are relatively simple plastic surgery procedures that do not require much time. Both the neck liposuction and neck lift may be performed at the same time. There is little discomfort associated with the procedures and …Read More
It’s been a full 14 months since I wrote the following:
I didn’t peel my cards off the table again, preferring instead to eat her face with my eyes. Her cheeks pulled in as she drew in on the cigar. She pulled her cards off the felt one more time. I couldn’t read her as well as I wanted. Remember, her beauty put me on tilt the moment she’d climbed out of the H2-Hummer. When she lit the cigar and bathed the table in a sbobet sexual wash of smoke and casual good humor, I decided there was no way I could play the game of poker ever again.
Since that time, the Cigar Girl has become a familar face and friend. We’ve played against each other several times, and her husband, now known as The Mark, has warned me more than once to not ever again consider eating his wife’s face.
Tonight, the subject of that game long ago came up again during a $40 buy-in single table freeze-out. And wouldn’t you know it, Cigar Girl went to the freezer and brought back a popsicle.
I don’t think it was intentional, but I’m not sure. For some reason, I’ve become a bit of a target at The Mark. And for some reason, I think Cigar Popsicle Girl knew she could put me on tilt.
When she hit the table with the striped, frozen phallic symbol, I couldn’t help but comment on my inability to watch a girl eat a popsicle. I folded my big blind to a raise and tried to concentrate on how nice the new table The Mark was.
When my small blind came up, Popsicle Girl and a few others limped in. I looked down to find AK suited in clubs. I put out a bet that was around the size of the pot. Popsicle Girl was taking her own sweet time, her concentration focused on the frozen goodness in her hands.
I callled her by name and, in my best table captain voice, tried to sound commanding.
“If you keep focusing on the popsicle, …Read More
26 players in a hotel conference room.
$50 buy-in with no rebuy.
Four tables covered in Green table cloths.
A couple cases of beer
$100T in chips
50 minute levels beginning at $1/$2 with a ten minute break at each increase
Top five finishers get paid.
The room was largely full of unknowns to me. I knew Teddy “Tight” Ballgame, the Rankster, Emerald City Derrick, Greenwood Phil, Tatwood, G-Rob, and slot hoki . The other 18 players were wild cards. I sized them up one by one, judging each card-holding book by its cover.
I got set the Diamond Table with this motley crew:
Seat One: Brad A-hat (not short for asshat, by the way)
Seat Two: David the Mute
Seat Three: Danny C-Gar
Seat Four: Otis (Otis LOVES drawing this seat by the way)
Seat Five: G-Rob
Seat Six: Mr. I’m going to get creamed by BadBlood’s quads so soon that I didn’t have time to properly introduce myself.
Seat Seven: BadBlood
Seat Eight: Stevie Broomcorn
I already knew BadBlood was the table favorite. I knew G-Rob would be loose, even though I told him to play tight. I figured Brad A-Hat and David the Mute for solid players and the rest of the guys to be middle of the road to poor. My pre-game predictions had BadBloood, Brad A-Hat, and me leaving the table alive.
I was wrong.
Memorable Hand #1–
During the first level, I’d done my best to establish myself as a tight player. I’d done everything I could, including proclaiming “TIGHT!” every time I raised (times that were very few and far between). I was within seconds of breaking out the old “tight as a 16-year old cheerleader” line when I looked down and saw pocket jacks.
I barely had the words out of my mouth when G-Rob announced, “Raise.”
Maybe he hadn’t heard me. See, I had said, “Raise.” By that I meant, “Get the hell out of my way, because I’m tight, see, and when I raise I have a hand that will make yours look like a kid who …Read More
Facial rejuvenation is the term used to encompass all forms of restoring a youthful appearance to the face. It includes the broad categories of:
Injectables (Botox® & fillers) (See our Botox site for additional uses of Botox®);
Resurfacing procedures (laser treatment, microdermabrasion & chemical peels);
Surgical rejuvenation (brow lifts, eyelid surgery; facelifts, nose jobs, face and chin augmentation, and neck lifts);
Topical tretinoin and tazarotene, which reverse sun damage and enhance collagen production. (Learn about these acne treatments at our Acne site)
The normal changes associated with facial aging are the result of both:
intrinsic (age related fat and bone loss known as atrophy, and skin laxity for example) and
extrinsic factors (like ultraviolet light / sunlight, chemicals, and smoking).
These factors contribute to biological changes associated with age and create predictable patterns of facial change. An over-simplistic analogy is mimicked by the changes in the helium balloon your child wouldn’t let you throw away. With time there is loss of internal volume (gas in this example) and as a result the covering loses its taught shape, luster, and becomes wrinkled. Moreover, there is a marked change in shape of the entire structure. Naturally, similar changes on your face can be highly distressing especially since many available treatments are being promoted.

Physicians can treat facial aging three ways: through reduction (making the skin “fit”), augmentation (“stretching” the skin back to normal) or a combination of the two.
When it comes to choosing a rejuvenation procedure; the severity of the facial aging must be considered. Here’s a review:
Wrinkles (individual fine or deep rhytids) are managed well by Botox® or injectable fillers. Although other agents are touted to produce similar results, Botox® is currently unsurpassed in its ability to soften or eliminate wrinkles caused directly by the action of underlying muscles of facial animation.
For wrinkles that may not be contributed to directly by facial movement or for depressed scars; superficial or deep fillers (ranging from collagen, hyaluronic acid and poly-L-lactic acid to silicone particles and bone cement and even your own …Read More
Event #30 of this years bumper WCOOP was one for the Omaha purists. Although there has been a healthy selection throughout the series, this was the first Omaha event that came with no added extras. Merely a simple Pot Limit tournament that was sure to separate the fish from the sharks in the Omaha ocean.
The entry fee came in at the higher end of the WCOOP’s price range, outside of the marquee events, at $1000 + $50. While that may have put some players off the promise of $500,000 added to the prize pool may have soon changed their minds; a field of 742 runners seems to suggest that it did. The players bumping the prize pool up to a total of $742,000.
Of all the Team PokerStars pros who sat down at their computers for event #30, the one who drew the most focus was former World Champion Greg Raymer. Already the proud owner of a WCOOP Omaha bracelet, from last years event #6, he was on the lookout for more silverware. His day may have started well, but alas it was not to be. His two pair all-in against an opponents set meant that he was eliminated in 118th place – a meagre 10 spots from the money.
Joining him at the virtual felt were a host of other Team toto hk members including: Barry Greenstein, Vanessa Rousso Steve Paul-Ambrose, Andre Akkari, Vicky Coren, Isabelle Mercier and Marcin Horecki. Of this troupe four would break the money bubble (Akkari, Paul-Ambrose, Horecki and Mercier), with Isabelle the highest professional finisher. Mercier, who has 6 WSOP cashes to her name as well as a victory in the 2004 WPT Ladies’ Night tournament, ended her night in 42nd place.
The dubious honor of being the final table bubble went to GRinDer444, who got his last few chips in the middle against the already pot committed salamandra24. GRinDer444 looked to be on top when the flop came, his pocket 5′s finding a match on the flop to give him a set, ahead of salamandra24′s J-T two pair. However the turn would …Read More
The world in which we live, most of the everyday tasks are done online. This means that all the data that is online is at constant risk of being stolen or exposed. This is where the need for encryption arises, although encryption is something that is not applied everywhere just because most people do not need it. The word encryption itself refers to the process through which all messages, files and other important data are encoded in such a way that all the contents are secure. No one can understand an encrypted message until and unless it is first decoded and only that person has access to the contents that has the key. This means that encryption is something that is quite important especially when you consider that there are constant online threats like hacking and identity theft.
Whole File Encrypting
Many people today use the internet today and if you are using the internet to share information with others then encrypting your data is highly recommended. When a person uses third party software in order to encrypt an entire file then it is known as whole file encryption. Such a software uses a complicated process in which the algorithm rearranges all the contents of the file in such a way that it is impossible to read. This software or program also provides the user with a key that allows him to easily decrypt the data and this access key is restricted to authorized people only.
Client Side Encrypting
Client side encrypting is nothing like whole file encrypting. This is because client side encrypting is a process which is used to protect all the data on a computer that is connected to a server through a bunch of networks. When data is being transferred between computers then there is a chance that the data is intercepted before it reaches through. When there are such threats then client side encrypting is the way to go.
Method Of Decrypting An Encrypted File
The first that everyone needs in order to decrypt an encrypted file is the original algorithm that was used in …
The basic reason why encryption is done is to protect the data and to only allow authorized people as far as viewing of the data is concerned. Of coursein case of encryption, apart from authorized people no other person can view the data. Different encryption methodologies are being applied by different people nowadays as per their requirements.
As mentioned above there are many various encryption methods available nowadays as a lot of study and development has taken place in this technology as well. In this article our topic of discussion is the PGP method encryption. The method is in most of the cases utilized by business officials and major organizations. PGP basically means “Pretty Good Privacy”. The Method was created back in the year 1991 and the name of the developer was Phil Zimmermann. Though the method remains one of the most famous encryption methods however throughout the years several changes have been made in it.
Just to give you some basics about encryption, the data which is normal and which is also readable is called as plaintext while on the other hand data which is encrypted is referred to as ciphertext.Needless to say complex algorithms are applied to convert the plaintext into ciphertext. The type and number of algorithms to be utilized differ as per the adopted encryption method.
Benefits of PGP Encryption
Explaining the whole PGP encryption methodology will be pretty complex and for a person like you who is a layman, it is also not that much important for you. The thing which is important for you are the benefits, which you can gain through PGP Encryption. These benefits are as follows
– The information which is considered valuable by you is always under protection and nobody can view or steal it from you
– The information can very easily be shared with other individuals or groups and company departments as well
– Easy to ascertain the reason and origin of the email
– The PGP encryption can work with all email applications and there are no compatibility issues
– Verification is received by …
The only place where you store your confidential data and information is your personal computer. However the issue is that if proper measures are not taken by you then all your important data can get lost or damaged. The only solution for proper protecting of your files is the encryption softwares. There are many encryption softwares which you can find provided by well-known companies. There are many types of encryptions as well hence the subject requires a lot of discussion. In this article we will discuss the encryption hard drives. We hope that the article will serve as a source of knowledge enrichment for the masses.
Encrypting of Hard drive: Windows
You should not get confused with the term “hard drive encryption on window” as the process is very similar to the encryption of folders and files of individual nature. Though there are many types of software that can be utilized for encrypting of hard drive on Windows however the one which we have taken into consideration in this article is TrueCrypt. The hardware encryption steps via TrueCrypt are as follows
• First of all begin the TrueCrypt and once it has started make the volume button
• Select the “Encrypt the System Partition or Entire System Drive” which you can easily see on the wizard’s first screen
• You have to select “Normal” as soon as the next screen opens
• The next thing which you need to do is “Encrypt the Whole Drive”. In case your drive contains other partitions and if you do not want them to get encrypted then in such a case select the first option
• The wizard will ask you regarding the encryption of host protected area. Our personal advice to you in this regard is to choose the “NO” option. You can choose the other option if you have a concrete reason for it
• “Single boot” should be chosen by you in the case where there is only one operating system in your particular computer.
• As soon as the next screen comes, you should select the algorithm for encryption. Though …Read More
