Until recently, hair loss was something that was generally perceived as a male problem.
More and more women are coming out of the hair loss closet like Cheryl Brewster, whose struggle with hair loss is featured in a Costa Contra Times.com report.
It is not something that would give you a migraine, but it is indeed quite a problem when tattoos start to lose their appeal. In fact, if those hearts, flowers, snakes or whatever marks you had your tattoo artist painted on your body start to annoy rather than amuse, you might as well start thinking of ways on how to get rid of them.
After enduring the painful process of getting those now regrettable marks from a licensed tattoo artist, you are now finding ways to get rid of these body marks and hope that you don't have to go through a painful (again?) solution to address the dilemma.
Good thing there is indeed a painless way to tattoo removal. Rank My Tattoos provides an article that talks about a wonder cream that can successfully remove tattoos within a couple of weeks. Here is what the article has to say:
One of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood is considering cosmetic surgery.
Michelle Pfeiffer, who mesmerized audiences with her sexy turn in The Fabulous Baker Boys and made our collective jaws drop as Catwoman in Batman Returns, has confessed to InStyle Magazine that she's thinking about going under a cosmetic surgeon's knife, but believes that appointment, if ever she decides to make it, is still a few more years down the road.
Now here's a piece of disturbing news.
According to this report from News-Record.com, doctors across the United States who are non-plastic surgeons are now offering cosmetic surgery services for their patients who have just popped in either to have their eyes checked, their teeth capped or their pregnancies confirmed.
Patients can pop in for a checkup or to have some wrinkles removed or even liposuction.
Doctors' offices across the nation increasingly are becoming one-stop shops for both medical and cosmetic services, offering procedures generally done by plastic-surgery specialists.
Doctors say they offer cosmetic services so they can better meet the needs of their patients.
Cosmetic surgery nowadays has become more socially acceptable than it had been 10 years ago. Information about the different kinds of cosmetic surgery procedures are becoming more and more accessible, effectively demystifying this branch of surgery. And the popularity of plastic surgery reality TV shows such as Extreme Makeover doesn't hurt either.
The rising trend in the popularity of cosmetic surgery can be seen in the United Kingdom too. Bloomberg reports that a survey conducted by British market research company Mintel concludes that by the year 2009, Britons will be spending close to one billion pounds on makeovers.

Almost everything in the world right now seems to be getting smaller. As the world itself gets smaller through the Internet, manufacturers of cellular phones, DVD players, and what-have-you are also churning out tinier models of their products faster than you can say "Lilliputian".
Apparently, men's suits are following suit.
According to a The Boston Globe report, designers are now doing slimmed-down, and therefore tighter, men's suits.
The decision to undergo cosmetic surgery should always be a carefully weighed one.
And for more satisfactory results, it would help if patients would go through a procedure with full faith in their cosmetic surgeon and without any doubts or pressure from anyone or anything else.
Which is why this piece of news from the United Kingdom is a bit disconcerting.
Judging by the way she looked in that striptease scene in the 90's blockbuster True Lies, you never would have thought that Jamie Lee Curtis would need any cosmetic surgery work done. She just looked oh so naturally sexy in that one.
As it turns out, the 47-year old actress had to turn, by her own admission, to liposuction, eyelid surgery and Botox injections to keep her looking like that.
And now she's decided that she'll have no more plastic surgery.
In any school in any part of the globe, there will always be bullies. They treat other kids like crap, beating them up, taking their lunch money, or humiliating them in every possible way. Many bullied kids often implore their parents to transfer them to another school, or do just about anything to avoid bullying. Some take it to the extreme, like those crazy Columbine kids.
And as far as extreme ways of dealing with bullying goes, Scotsman.com has reported over the weekend that more and more Scottish teenagers go under the knife to beat bullies.
Generally, tattoos are pretty cool and all that. But since getting a tattoo involves, well, breaking the skin, it is in your best interest to get your tattoos from licensed sources, since they usually follow standard hygiene practices.
Get them from basically fly-by-night tattoo "artists" and there's a possibility you'll end up like the people in this Reuters report:
Working out to great music helps pump us up, and is undeniably fun too. Walking or pumping iron have become a much more pleasant experience because of music, which is probably why people doing their exercises without headphones stuck into their ears have become a rare sight these days.
The problem is, exercise brings on sweat, which in turn can damage your headphones. This is probably what headphone maker Sennheiser had in mind when it launched a whole new line of headphones that are resistant to water-and of course, to sweat. According to a recent feature in The New York Times:
Sharon Osbourne has been known to be pretty up-front about things. She is more profane than most sailors, is a whole lot nastier than her X-Factor co-judge Simon Cowell, and has been very straightforward about her battle with cancer.
But just when you think she doesn't back down from anything, here comes an ExtraTV.com report saying the Osbourne matriarch is actually considering giving up cosmetic surgery, something she admitted to just late last year.
Somewhere in this blog is a post about the rising popularity of cosmetic surgery in the unlikeliest of countries-Saudi Arabia, a strictly Islamic country.
Now, another Middle Eastern country is on its way to joining the cosmetic surgery boom in the region-Pakistan, another conservative Islamic nation.
According to this Gulf Times report, the cheap cost of cosmetic surgery in Pakistan has made it a rapidly expanding business in the country. And its biggest customers, the report says, are expatriate Pakistanis who embark on the journey home just to have a nip here and a tuck there.
Say goodbye to dentures.
Scientists from the University of Alberta in Canada have claimed to have created a device capable of regrowing teeth and bones. According to an AFP report, the inventors have already filed patents for the device, which is based on low-intensity pulsed ultrasound or LIPUS technology.
Remember that TV series from the 1980s called Knight Rider? You know, the show that featured KITT, a super car that could talk, cruise at 300 mph, leap dozens of feet through the air, repel bullets, was loaded with all sorts of armaments, and was able to drive itself?
Well, Volkswagen has recently unveiled a car that brings KITT to mind. No, it's not bulletproof, couldn't do crazy speeds, and definitely doesn't talk. Still, it's no small feat for the German car manufacturer to come up with a self-driving fully automatic car, as featured in a Daily Mail news article.
