Inferior after-sales service by Globe Broadband

The series of email exchanges below show that I have been complaining to Globe Broadband to restore my Internet connection, by telephone and by email from an Internet Cafe. However, for five days, despite repeated promises, no one has come to fix it. A leading telecom company such as Globe Broadband should attend to the needs of their clients. The most recent email is on top.

Tummy Tuck and breast enlargement procedure

The video below shows Tummy Tuck surgical operation. Also, known as abdominoplasty, this major surgical procedure flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. 

A tummy tuck is suitable for both men and women who are in good general health overall. It should not be confused with a liposuction (the cosmetic surgery used to remove fat deposits), although the surgeon may elect to perform liposuction as part of a tummy tuck. Women who have muscles and skin stretched by multiple pregnancies may find the procedure useful to tighten those muscles and reduce that skin. 

A tummy tuck is also an alternative for men or women who were obese at one point in their lives and still have excessive fat deposits or loose skin in the abdominal area. 

For women who would like larger breasts for cosmetic reasons, there is breast augmentation surgery, which places implants under the breast tissue or chest muscle to increase the breast size. Women who have small breasts, or whose breasts have lost their fullness after pregnancy or weight loss, may be candidates for breast implants.
