Orlando Plastic Surgery Center Launches Orlando Weight Loss Program

(EMAILWIRE.COM, January 26, 2012 ) Orlando, FL -- Shockingly, a total of 68.3% of the U.S. adult population over the age of 20 has significant issues with weight! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 33.9% of all U.S. adults over the age of 20 are obese, while 34.4% are overweight!

Also, in 2010, usage of fat tissue fillers rose 14% compared to 2009 (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).

Recognizing these startling facts, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center has launched its new Orlando Weight Loss Program.

But, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center does not advocate for individuals to lose as much weight as possible just to look good. Rather, it encourages individuals to lose weight at a healthy pace.

The Orlando Weight Loss Program helps individuals by creating a weight loss plan customized specifically to their unique needs, medically supervises the entire process, and helps individuals look and feel their best from the inside out. And best of all, this is done in a healthy and medically safe way.

“They trust our expertise and opinions, and we take that very seriously as cosmetic and plastic surgery professionals,” said lead surgeon and owner Dr. George Pope.

Orlando Plastic Surgery Center continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping people look and feel their best. It has already helped many patients improve their satisfaction with their lives. Adding a monitored and medically safe weight loss program to its repertoire of services is just one more way it is looking to help the general public.

6 May 2016 at 3:47am

By Barbara Goldberg NORWALK, Conn. (Reuters) - Still shunning alcohol because she was breastfeeding her 7-week-old baby, Jessica Hopkins grabbed a 50-pound (23 kg) beer keg with her bare hands and hurled it over a chest-high metal bar. Women like Hopkins, a former jewelry design assistant, are the fastest-growing group of competitors in Strongman, a sport that involves chucking, dragging and hefting tremendously heavy weights. "It's almost like labor - you have to work through it even though it's hard," Hopkins said recently on her first day back at Strongman training since giving birth.

6 May 2016 at 3:27am

By Anuradha Nagaraj CHENNAI, India (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Placing their hands on the shoulders of the person in front, dozens of teenage girls excitedly form a human train and chug around the sparsely furnished community hall in India's southern city of Chennai. Aged between 12 and 17, the girls - who are drawn from urban slums across the country - chatter, laugh and sing songs as the gathering gets underway. "To enter my home, I have to negotiate drunk men, lewd language, garbage and filth," said 17-year-old Sayali Mandve, the daughter of a domestic worker, from the Jogeshwari slum area in Mumbai, India's financial capital.

5 May 2016 at 9:25pm

After decades of battling depression, former soldier Betty Ann Archer finally flew to New Delhi to complete her gender transition, one of a growing number of foreigners heading to India for budget sex-change operations. Born Dale Archer, the 64-year-old American said she felt trapped in the wrong body right from the start, recalling secretly trying on her mother's dresses as a boy -- much to the horror of her conservative military father. "I became very ill in 2011 and almost died," she said, wearing a bright blue sari and ornate Indian jewellery that she bought after her gender reassignment surgery in Delhi.

Herbalife in advanced talks to settle FTC probe, issues remain
5 May 2016 at 5:28pm

Herbalife Ltd, which has been accused by billionaire investor William Ackman of being a fraud, said it was in advanced talks with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to settle a probe into whether it runs a pyramid scheme. The company estimated that a fine could be $200 million, which helped the company's shares rise 14.5 percent in extended trading on Thursday. Injunctive relief, a spokesman said, could be "just as significant as the money obtained for consumers and even more influential on a company's future operations." Ackman unveiled a $1 billion short bet against Herbalife in 2012 accusing the company of running a pyramid scheme which pays members more for recruiting new members than for selling its products.

Sanofi ready to up offer for drugmaker Medivation, could oust board
5 May 2016 at 4:41pm

PARIS/NEW YORK (Reuters) - France's Sanofi said it could raise its proposed $9.3 billion deal to buy Medivation if the U.S. cancer drugmaker engaged in talks, threatening to go directly to shareholders to oust the board if not. Sanofi Chief Executive Olivier Brandicourt wrote in a letter to the board of Medivation published on Thursday that the transaction was a priority for the French drugmaker and it was committed to seeing it through. San Francisco-based Medivation said on Thursday it had received a letter from Sanofi that "simply restates an inadequate proposal that... substantially undervalues the Company, its leading oncology franchise, and innovative late-stage pipeline".

Sanofi, Amgen cholesterol drugs win UK backing after price cuts
5 May 2016 at 4:03pm

Two rival cholesterol-lowering injections from Sanofi and Amgen have been recommended by Britain's healthcare cost watchdog after the manufacturers offered special discounts to the country's state-run health service. Sanofi's Praluent, which was developed with Regeneron, and Amgen's Repatha are both so-called PCSK9 medicines that work in a different way to existing cholesterol fighters such as statins. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) said in draft guidance on Friday that both drugs could be considered for use by people whose cholesterol is still not under control despite trying other treatments. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
