4 Your Health: The popularity of plastic surgery and how migraines weigh on people

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Weighing too much or not enough may increase the risk of migraine.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins looked at 12 studies of more than 280,000 adults. They found obese people were 27 percent more likely to have migraines than those who were at a normal weigh and being under-weight was linked to a 13 percent higher risk of migraines.

Experts speculate that molecules secreted by fatty tissue may play a role in triggering the headaches.

Plastic surgery up

Americans spent $16 billion last year on cosmetic plastic surgery which is more than ever before. 

That's according to a new report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. 

Among the most popular surgical procedures, a tummy tuck was the most expensive, averaging $5,700, followed by nose reshaping at $5,000 and buttock augmentation at $4,300 dollars.

As for popular non-surgical procedures, a chemical peel was the most costly, topping $670.
