The Barbie craze is all around us. Which has female plastic surgeon, Dr Shruti Tannan asking, “What makes us love Barbie so much?”
The combination of weight loss, gravity and loss of elasticity as we mature in age can cause excess skin of the legs and thighs. This can be uncomfortable and bothersome.
