Dealing with unwanted body hair can be frustrating, particularly if you have thick, dark, coarse hair in unsightly areas. In many cases, the process of removing the hair can be difficult and time consuming, which only adds to the frustration and embarrassment.

But, what if you see these mud flinging sprints and frigid military crawls, and think: maybe this is not for me.
When it comes to getting fit, there is more than one way to skin a cat. As you know, some ways are better than others.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 10 million cosmetic surgery procedures were carried out in 2012, representing almost $11 billion dollars spent. The most popular procedures were cosmetic breast surgery, liposuction, and facial rejuvenation procedures, like eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty. Clearly, cosmetic surgery is an important part of Americans looking their best throughout their lives.
