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.

Abuse of U.S. generic-drug rules costs consumers billions, report says
23 Jul 2014 at 7:44am
U.S. rules, aimed at ensuring prescription medicines are not misused, have been manipulated by brand-name drug companies to keep cheaper competition off the market, costing consumers billions of dollars, a report said on Wednesday. Protections set up by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration called "risk evaluation and mitigation strategies" (REMS), which can curb distribution of dangerous medicines, have been used to prevent generic drugmakers from getting the drugs in order to test their own versions, which is required to win FDA approval, the report from the Generic Pharmaceutical Association said. This has delayed the arrival to market of 40 potential generic drugs, costing consumers some $5.4 billion a year, according to the report by Matrix Global Advisors and released by the generic drug trade group.

Gaza mourns, seeks justice for generations lost in Israeli strikes
23 Jul 2014 at 7:29am
By Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA (Reuters) - Sitting at home for dinner or running for their lives in dark streets, generations of the same families are dying in Israel'sbombardment of Gaza. Survivors are witnessing large numbers of relatives killed in a single strike and in their grief seek justice. Israel says it seeks to target only militants who are firing rockets from the coastal strip into its territory, but the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said on Wednesday that the killing of over 400 Gaza civilians in the last two weeks may constitute war crimes. Rights campaigners and Israel say the rocket fire aimed at Israeli cities by militants from Hamas and other Palestinian groups also breaks international law. When Israeli shells rained down nearly non-stop in the early hours of Sunday morning, the Ayyad family cowered in their hallway too scared to escape the border town of Shejaia, once home to 100,000 and now a rubble-filled war zone. At first light, they made their move.

23 Jul 2014 at 6:17am

A run of weak quarters highlights the pressure on Chief Executive Andrew Witty, whose drive to reshape Britain's biggest drugmaker has yet to deliver the hoped-for return to sustained revenue growth, following a lengthy period of patent expiries. The company is also mired in a serious corruption scandal in China, where it has been accused of paying bribes to doctors to use its medicines. Sales in China were down by a quarter compared to the same period a year ago. Witty told reporters he remained "very concerned" about the allegations in China, which have damaged its business in a fast-growing emerging market, but declined to comment any further.
