Young David seems to have it all – He’s got a Playmate wife and he is acting his socks off in Bones (We’re told). His gorgeous wife, Jaime, has had the traditional Playmate makeover – breast implants, a nose job, and most probably some botox in the forehead and between the brows – in addition to possible lip fillers such as restylane or juvederm. Her work is not overdone, leaving her looking sweetly sexy. (more…)
Few would deny that Kate Winslet is a beauty. Luscious red locks, pearlescent white skin and a coveted hourglass figure, but how long will it last? This gorgeous national treasure is firmly anti-surgery. She’s frequently commented on Hollywood’s obsession with body image, and now joins together with a troupe of organic Oscar winners to promote the ‘British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League.’
Sounds like a movie in itself, doesn’t it? Cue Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz in costume, zimmering along with their prune-like faces, as the rest of the cast look on in dismay. A little harsh perhaps, but the truth is that undergoing cosmetic surgery is a choice. It’s all well and good to say ‘I don’t want to freeze the expressions of my face’ but my God don’t start knocking on people’s doors like a Jehovah’s Witness, freezing their expression of opinion full stop.
Winslet told The Telegraph only weeks ago, ‘I will never give in,’ because cosmetic surgery ‘goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty.’ (more…)
With Carla Bruni having recently given birth to Sarkozy spawn, the watchful eye of the media is focused on her. Will she return to a pre-pregnancy state? How will she lose that extra baby weight? Is the baby actually the president’s? OK, so that last one isn’t relevant, but many of the photographs show Carla Bruni looking fresh-faced and unscathed by the tolls of pregnancy. Remarkable, considering she’s had her bundle of joy a little late at 42.
Last year however, the Daily Mail asked medical consultants to gauge exactly what they believed the beautiful Bruni to have had: among the treatments suggested were Botox and fillers, creating an entirely different picture to the one we usually see in the media. A rather unflattering close-up shot seemed to back up the consultants’ assumptions; so why the false portrayal of a natural beauty past her prime?
The fact is, ‘Mummy makeovers’ are all the rage. In Hollywood it’s an established routine, but back here in the UK it’s still somewhat controversial. Pregnancy definitely takes its toll on the body, and changes in metabolism can contribute to more permanent weight gain; much more difficult to lose than a couple of post-Christmas pounds. Breast-feeding is another aspect which contributes to body change, changing the size, shape and even sagginess of the breast tissue. (more…)
Oh Lindsay Lohan, will you ever actually learn? Committing a crime, receiving community service and not seeing the punishment through is one thing; but please would you look after your teeth?Linday’s recent red carpet appearance has been the talk of the blogosphere and gossip mags. Not because she’s fallen over drunk again or haphazardly flashed her pants to the paps, no; it’s because her smile can best be described as ‘disturbing’. Decayed, yellowed and chipped, her not-so pearly whites spoke volumes about the goings on in her private life, making the troubled actress appear much older than 25.
Her publicist was less than forthcoming when pressed by the media as to the state of the star’s grill: ‘With everything going on – from deteriorating public education to rampant homelessness to international unrest – there is no way I’m going to comment on Lindsay’s teeth.’ Quite right too, but when the whole world thinks she looks like a rampant vagrant, surely something needs to be done to recover the actress’s former glory.

THOUSANDS of Welsh hospital patients are getting free plastic surgery on the NHS, we can reveal today.
Welsh surgeons are performing the ops on patients’ noses, ears, breasts and stomachs with the costs now spiralling to more than £3m a year, figures obtained by Wales on Sunday show.
Last year alone, more than 2,000 patients unhappy with their looks went under the knife for everything from tummy tucks and nose jobs to facelifts and ear-pinning. Welsh hospitals insist very few of the procedures would be done only for cosmetic reasons and patients get the green light on clinical grounds. (more…)
Dr Christiaan Botha committed suicide last weekend, a month before he was to appear before the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) on more charges relating to performing outside the scope of his qualifications.
Botha, who studied medicine at the University of Pretoria, was not a qualified plastic surgeon. He started performing cosmetic surgery after 10 years of “self-study” and helping qualified surgeons. (more…)
I don’t mind flying. But the delays absolutely make me crazy.
I usually try to arrive the night before when I have to lecture at meetings. That gives me a chance to unwind. Recently, I arrived at Las Vegas at 5 a.m. for a talk that started at 7 a.m. If I had been performing a procedure, there would be no way that I could, or would, have done it.
Actually, most of my travel involves medical meetings, lecturing or teaching. It’s important to keep up with things and to help train other doctors. So I don’t mind taking time away from the practice.
In the US People in their 80s and even 90s are going under the knife for better bodies. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2010 there were 84,685 surgical procedures among patients age 65 and older.
They included 26,635 facelifts; 24,783 cosmetic eyelid operations; 6,469 liposuctions; 5,874 breast reductions; 3,875 forehead lifts; 3,339 breast lifts and 2,414 breast augmentations. Except for a brief turndown during the recession, those numbers have been rising for years.
At age 83, Marie Kolstad has a rich life. She works full time as a property manager and keeps an active social calendar, busying herself with 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. But one thing needed improvement, she decided: her figure. At her age, she said, “your breasts go in one direction, and your brain goes in another.” So on July 22, Kolstad, a widow who lives in Orange County, Calif., underwent a three-hour breast lift with implants, at a cost of about $8,000.

There has been a recent wave of plastic and cosmetic surgery from Muslim females demanding an Islamic female plastic surgeon to perform either reconstructive or cosmetic surgery procedures and Secret Surgery has a dedicated package designed to meet their needs.
In several cultures such as North Africa, women have traditionally used tattoos between their eyes, on their hands or beneath their lips as a sign of beauty, until just a few years ago only artists and singers had cosmetic surgery, but these days the rapid development several Islamic societies has led to a demand for cosmetic surgery from ordinary women wanting to look good.
