Dr. Nicholas Nikolov - Inside Edition
Women everywhere are clamoring to get arms just like First Lady Michelle Obama.
Rita Badawe loves to shop, but the flabby skin under her arms makes her uncomfortable when trying on clothes. We went to Debra C in Beverly Hills where the 30-year-old administrative assistant tried on sleeveless clothes.
She said, "When I look at Michelle Obama's arms I feel like, 'Wow, I wish I could get that look, how could I get it?' I feel like I have ham hocks. It's sad."
She is getting married in a few months and wants to have taut arms like Michelle Obama for her wedding day. So she went to board certified plastic surgeon Nicholas Nikolov to have liposuction on her upper arms.
He said, "What we want to take away is some of this fat here, and also make sure it's not hanging. And get a little bit of a tighter look."
An excited Rita was wheeled into the operating room. The doctor makes a small incision, then sucks out the excess fat from her arms. After the fat is removed, a laser is inserted. A laser is used to firm up the skin. The entire procedure took one hour.
Now, Rita is on her way to having arms exactly like the first lady.
Jill Miller - Monsters & Critics
The first time you meet fitness guru Jill Miller, you feel the energy radiating off her fit and toned frame. Her always full-to-capacity classes at the Equinox clubs across the country are one of the best investments you can make.
Miller uses medical terms in familiar context to explain what you are doing in class, and by the end of a session, you feel smarter, immersed in a great educational experience and certainly more aware of what you're doing with your body at any given moment. She teaches you to respect your spine, health and precious mobility.
Jill Miller's tutelage in the art of pain management and core strength (her coined term "core-so" will work its way into your vocabulary) will readjust how you approach your fitness routine. Miller will have you preaching her Gospel of Proprioception, the body's ability to sense movement within joints and joint position, mastering your body's blind spots, to your Yoga and Pilates instructors who may not be aware and pushing too hard to do the "pose" instead of understanding the inherent dangers of an aggressive workout.
She believes you don't have to beat yourself up to get fit, and her new DVD, 'Coregeous,' is one exercise tutorial that every Yoga, Pilates and fitness trainer should have in their arsenal of continuing education.
It's revelatory, and done in the classic Jill Miller style of taking big, complicated subjects with hard to pronounce words, breaking them down in completely easy to follow instructions.
