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.

Mosquitos spread microcephaly disease in Brazil
30 Nov 2015 at 2:26pm

Braslia (AFP) - Cases of microcephaly, which causes babies to be born with small heads, are skyrocketing in Brazil and the discovery that mosquitoes carry the disease means there are few ways to stop it, officials said Monday. Latest figures show 1,248 cases this year, compared to just 147 last year, said the health ministry. Complicating the situation is the revelation that mosquitos carrying the dengue-like Zika virus are spreading microcephaly, which also curbs mental development in the baby, Claudio Maierovitch, director of the epidemiology department at the health ministry, said.

Size matters: Stockholm clinic launches penis measuring tape
30 Nov 2015 at 1:41pm

Forget reassurances to insecure teens: a Stockholm youth health clinic is handing out special measuring tapes to young men and asking them to size up their penises, it said on Monday. The specially-designed measuring tape, which measures circumference and not length, will be handed out free of charge at the clinic as of December 1. "A common reason for a condom slipping off or breaking during sex is that you've bought the wrong size... You have to measure the circumference of the penis when erect, not the length," a male nurse at the clinic, Eddie Sandstrom, says in a podcast on its website.

30 Nov 2015 at 1:35pm

Alabama ends court fight over Planned Parenthood funding
30 Nov 2015 at 1:25pm
Alabama called off a legal battle with Planned Parenthood on Monday after a federal judge last month blocked the state from defunding the reproductive health organization's clinics amid national controversy about its handling of aborted fetal tissue. In a joint court filing, both parties said that Alabama had resumed funding of Planned Parenthood clinics in Mobile and Birmingham, and the clinics were following state regulations. The agreement followed an order by U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson to stop Alabama from terminating its agreement with a Planned Parenthood regional affiliate providing services under Medicaid, the federal and state healthcare program for the poor.

Pope admits Church finds condom use against AIDS 'complicated' issue
30 Nov 2015 at 1:22pm

Pope Francis admitted Monday the question as to whether the Church should allow the use of condoms in the fight against AIDS was a "complicated" one, but he said the world had bigger problems. Grilled on the eve of World AIDS Day about the Roman Catholic Church's controversial opposition to condoms, the Argentine pontiff admitted the issue was "morally complicated for the Church", but refused to be drawn into a debate. The Church is against all forms of contraception and instead says abstinence is the best way to avoid spreading AIDS.

Certain birth defects linked to abuse of infants and toddlers
30 Nov 2015 at 1:11pm
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Babies with certain birth defects are much more likely to be abused as infants and toddlers than other young children, a U.S. study suggests. Babies with malformations of the mouth and jaw known as cleft lip and palate were 40 percent more likely to be abused by their second birthday than those born without birth defects, the analysis of about 3 million children in Texas found. For infants born with spina bifida, a spinal cord disorder linked to lower limb paralysis and cognitive delays, the odds of maltreatment were 58 percent higher, researchers reported in the journal Pediatrics.

By Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Jury selection began on Monday in the trial of the first of six police officers charged in the April death of a black man from an injury in police custody that set off rioting in Baltimore and inflamed the U.S. debate on race and justice.
