Great Cleavage Without Surgery

Attractive Cleavage without Going Under the Knife

If you are not happy with your bust and feel you are simply not well-endowed, join the club. There are many women like yourself, not to mention men as well, who are striving to have the ideal body image and the breasts are definitely an area of major concern. You can have the chest that you have dreamed of and you don’t have to turn to plastic surgery to get it.

Enhancing Your Breasts Without Any Pain

Thanks to companies like glamourboutique.com, you can take advantage of products such as silicone breast enhancers. Unlike so many individuals who choose the more drastic option, laying out major dollars and undergoing painful procedures, you don’t have to go through actual physical changes to your body. You can choose to wear an enhancer that is applied to your skin or that will supplement your under garments. The best part about going this route, besides the fact that you do not have to suffer, is the fact that it isn’t a permanent change. Many individuals go the route of plastic surgery and regret their choice later on down the line. Choose breast enhancers and cleavage enhancers for a temporary fix that allows you more flexibility.

Choose to be a Different Size Any Time

Plastic surgery is a more restrictive solution when it comes to cosmetic alterations. When you have a procedure performed, you are stuck with those results. If you’re not happy and want to be smaller or larger, you’ll have to go under the knife again. It’s time consuming and extremely expensive, not to mention you have to wait for full recovery before you can really enjoy your results. When you opt for breast enhancers, you can change your cup size according to your mood. When there’s a special occasion, get a cleavage enhancer that will really show off that new dress or make your date extra special. It’s your choice and only involves wearing a different product.

Avoid the Risks Involved with Surgery

When you opt for breast enhancers and cleavage enhancers, you have no risks involved. You’re saving your budget and you won’t be enduring a painful procedure that could put your life at risk. Infection and complications are always possible, not to mention a botched procedure.

Interview With Dr. Matlock, The Vagina Surgeon

Last week I caught up with world-famous cosmetic surgeon David Matlock and asked him a couple of questions about how he became the world’s premiere vagina surgeon. I also gave Dr. Matlock the opportunity to poke fun at his business partner, Dr. Simopoulos.  

Headshot of Dr. Matlock.

Q: What made you want to specialize in cosmetic surgery when you were in medical school?

A: [laughs] Alright. Well. Look. Basically, as far as cosmetic surgery goes, that didn’t come about until long after I finished medical school.

Q: How did you get started with cosmetic surgery then?

A: I’m a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist. And I’ve done liposuction for the past 25 years.

The cosmetic part of it came about 14 years ago when I took an interest in lasers and aesthetic surgery.

I turned that interest into a laser procedure for the enhancement of sexual gratification for women and called it “vaginal rejuvenation.” Then I put out an ad saying that’s what we offered at my practice. We had to pull the ad because we were so inundated with calls, requests, appointments, and surgeries. The procedure sold itself. But the women who came in would say “You know what? I don’t like my labia minora. Is that something you do?” And there wasn’t a textbook or a paper I could go to because this stuff wasn’t being done at the time.

Q: So you had to develop more procedures?

I then developed a laser surgical procedure for the laser reduction of the labia minora. And then people would ask for various different things, “I want this” and “I want that.” So we developed more procedures and created the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute in 1996.

Q: How did you get the word out about that?

A: We didn’t have to run an ad for it [laughs]. The media came all on their own. We were inundated with media requests. The bottom line is sex sells.

So that’s basically how this whole thing with female genital plastic surgery got started. And all of it has been based on what women requested when they came in.

Q: So you were one of the first surgeons in the world to do this kind of work?

A: I was the first, yes. I’m the pioneer of laser vaginal rejuvenation and designer laser vaginoplasty. Dr. Simopoulos and I co-authored a handful of academic papers. We’re actually working on a couple of chapters for a major book on female genital plastic surgery right now.

Q: And when’s that book due out?

A: We’re in the beginning phases of writing the first textbook on female genital plastic surgery. A group of us doctors is working on it, so it could take years [laughs].

Q: So it’s going to be a scholarly release, a textbook, and not a general consumer release?

A: Yeah, it’s a scholarly release. You won’t see it at Barnes & Noble or anything.

Q: You were the pioneer, but what about other doctors?

A: Another thing that happened after I started doing these procedures is doctors started calling in wanting training. I’ve trained over 350 doctors, including gynecologists, plastic surgeons, and urologists in over 46 countries. I’ve treated patients from all 50 states and over 63 countries.

Q: Many people think vaginal rejuvenation makes sex better mostly for the male partner. Can you take a minute to dispel this myth?

A: The most important thing to remember is my practice is dedicated to women, not their male partners. We won’t do the procedure if a man is pushing a woman or has coerced a woman to come in for it. What we do is for the woman. We want our patients to come in on their own volition. Our interest, our purpose is for the woman. We want to empower women with knowledge, choice, and alternatives. That’s what we do. Obviously if I enhance sexual gratification for the woman I enhance sexual gratification for the man.

But our goal is and always will be for the woman.

Q: This is kind of a light question. Do you listen to music in the operating room?

A: Yeah, we listen to music. We listen to all types of music. We listen to contemporary music. Basically that. We listen to 102.7 here in L.A. if you’re familiar with that station. We try our best to stay current with the music and keep things light in the operating room. [laughs]

Q: Earlier you described yourself as an aesthetic enthusiast. That you’re really focused on aesthetics.

A: Correct. Our whole practice is based on aesthetic surgery.

Q: What do you like about aesthetics as it has to do with the human body?

A: We like to create beauty. It’s all about beauty. It’s all about youth. We also, with our vaginal procedures, want to restore things to the patient’s idea of normalcy. We’re all about the woman. We want to help her create the best sexual experience possible for herself. That’s the whole purpose of laser vaginal rejuvenation. Our designer laser vaginoplasty is for the aesthetic enhancement of the vulvar structures. If a patient has an issue with her labia minora, labia majora, or mons pubis we can enhance those structures for her, too.

Q: Do you have any favorite books, fiction or non-fiction, where cosmetic surgery plays a central role?

A: Wow [laughs].

Q: There’s a few out there.

A: Where cosmetic surgery plays a central role?

Q: Forget books. We’ll open the question up to include any kind of media. TV, films?

A: I can’t think of anything other than scientific textbooks and presentations…

Q: So you weren’t a fan of Nip/Tuck?

A: I was a big fan of Nip/Tuck! Big huge fan of Nip/Tuck! I watched every episode. As a matter of fact, they called us for information. There was an episode about the G-Shot™. I pioneered that whole thing. G-Shot™, the g-spot amplification procedure, is my trademark. There was an episode about that. They called to find out more about it. There was an episode about labiaplasty where one patient came in and one of the nurses had had the procedure, and they were like come on back and see. So, yeah. I was a big fan of that show.

Q: What do you really think of Dr. Simopoulos?

A: I think he’s a brilliant guy, very, very smart. He’s from Johns Hopkins, one of the top universities in the nation for medicine. Very smart guy, very articulate. I like him. It’s a smooth, easy partnership we have. We’ll be together forever.

Q: What did you think of his Millionaire Matchmaker episode when it came out?

(See part of the episode for yourself: http://www.bravotv.com/the-millionaire-matchmaker/season-6/videos/not-impressed-by-ass-cake)

A: Well, you know, I encouraged him to do it. It was something [laughs]. I think the way he came across on the show was based on his experience with women and the legal system’s approach to divorce. I saw what he went through. I’ve been through it before, too. I think that’s what he’s going through in the episode. I recommended he have the young lady to do the cake and all that stuff. As a matter of fact, I said “Hey, use my house!

Q: That was at your house? He’s actually at your house in the episode?

A: Yeah, that was my house. I think my wife and I were out of the country. I think we were in Dubai or something. I know how these shows go. The producers plan the stories and make them go how they want them to go. I was on Dr. 90120 for 6 years. I know how it is [laughs].

Q: Did anyone ever come in and mention the show as a source for how they heard about you?

A: I don’t know. I bet he had some patients come in. I don’t remember what happened after Simopoulos went on Millionaire Matchmaker. It seems like the practice has been busy for as long as I can remember.

Q: So there wasn’t a flood at the door like with the first vaginal rejuvenation ad?

A: What happened was there were a lot of women calling him, sending email to the info account saying “Hey, I think I’m the girl for you!” They’d send pictures, too. A lot of that stuff went on. We all got a good kick out of that, but [Alex] is still single.

Celebrities With The Most Natural Looking Plastic Surgery

Victoria-Beckham-Vogue-China2

Actually one can hardly find a purely natural face or body on the red carpet. Almost every Hollywood celebrity seems to have had “a little work done”. But the result of plastic surgery is rather controversial. It is a common practice to discuss celebrities’ photos before and after unhappy plastic surgery. But an excellent plastic surgery is a true way to a swift career, violent popularity, world-wide fame, as well as exorbitant honoraria. Today LifeToStar.com suggests you have a glance at the best plastic surgeries (before-and-after photos) of the beautiful, glorious, and wealthy Hollywood celebrities.

A plastic surgery is considered best when it results in little altering of the “natural beauty”.

Megan Fox

A modern American actress MEGAN FOX gives the example of a miraculous transformation of a plain pretty girl into a languishing, charming lady. Thus many people consider her beauty artificial completely, but if you have a close look at the star’s photos, you’ll find a minute difference between those of today and those of the past. Most likely Megan resorted to lip correction and nose job. Plastic surgery at breast augmentation gives no rise to doubt. But a rare celebrity can resist the temptation!

Jennifer Aniston

The “Friends” star JENNIFER ANISTON when a youngster was a real “ugly duck”. Even now she hardly keeps in touch with her mother who thought of her daughter’s Hollywood career an utter folly “with such appearance”.

But by the “Friends” shooting Jennifer had lost weight. By the end of the TV project she had got rid of her peculiar Greek nose (her father was a Greek). In 2008 the actress resorted to the second rhinoplastics. Allegedly she had to correct her nasal septum because of labored breathing. Under the surgeon’s knife Jennifer’s nose gained a slimmer shape and now it looks quite natural.

Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt’s wife ANGELINA JOLIE used to lie on a patient plate. Sure, the celebrity is reluctant to discuss this topic with journalists and she usually denies any plastic surgery. But nevertheless Angelina once underwent rhinoplasty at narrowing her nose. After the excellent surgery she spared much time for fitness. The result surpassed all expectations as the actress’s beauty, charm, and sex appeal leaves no man indifferent!

Demi Moore

Another Hollywood celebrity DEMI MOORE persuades that she has resorted to the help of plastic surgeons, but it had nothing to do with her face. At the same time experts catch her in archness. They say, the movie star HAS undergone rhinoplasty and corrected her squint. In addition, she’s enlarged her breast and made liposuction of belly, buttocks, and thighs. As a result, today Demi Moore looks admirable at her age!

Victoria Beckham

An outstanding singer and a prosperous business lady VICTORIA BECKHAM must have corrected her appearance for several times. The recognized woman of fashion can obviously boast of nose job, change of eyebrow shape and lip contour. Besides Victoria enhanced her body by means of liposuction and breast augmentation.

You see, almost every Hollywood celebrity is the result of plastic surgeons’ job. You are not supposed to notice it. And that is the key to a GOOD plastic surgery.

What Is Vagina Sculpting And How Is It Done?

labia

One form of plastic surgery which has become very popular in recent years is labia sculpting. Also known as labia reduction surgery or labiaplasty, this procedure entails reducing the sign of a woman’s labia. These are the lips that cover the clitoris and vaginal opening, and many females are born with excess skin. Although a number of people choose plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes, it should be noted that a large number of labiaplasty patients do so for medical reasons. Large labia can be discomforting and many women have reported symptoms of pain as well as increased urinary tract infections and other problems as a result. Fortunately, advancements in technology and an increased number of trained physicians in this specific field have made labia sculpting a possibility for women who suffer from anatomical misfortune.

It is important to note that while plastic surgery can indeed have its benefits, it is not for everyone. As such, physicians who perform labiaplasties will not offer the procedure to just anyone. According to Grant Stevens, founder of Marina Plastic Surgery, “If I hear the word pain or chafing or tenderness, it’s an entirely different consult than if I get the ‘I’m embarrassed, I think it looks funny.’ But ‘I’m embarrassed’ doesn’t automatically disqualify somebody”. Thus, a doctor’s decision to perform the operation is wholly dependent on the patient’s individual circumstances. To be clear, if a woman is experiencing pain or severe discomfort due to their oversized labia, seeking medical help is highly recommended. Here is some helpful information regarding labia sculpting and how the procedure is performed.

All about labia sculpting

  • Labiaplasty surgery is just one of many procedures that are performed on female genitals. Its purpose is to reduce the size and/or make the skin more aesthetically pleasing. Vaginoplasty is an operation that is used to tighten and/or rejuvenate the vagina, and is popular among women who have had children. Lastly, a hoodectomy is used to uncover or expose a woman’s clitoral hood.
  • The procedure entails removing excess skin on both labia minora and majora. These are the inner and outer folds respectively, and their size and shape vary considerably from person to person.
  • A recent study has found that most women opt to have the surgery for one of three reasons, which are to correct a functional impairment (causing discomfort and/or pain) for both functional and aesthetic reasons, and for aesthetics reasons on their own. If you are a woman are thinking about having a labiaplasty, just know that the issue does not have to be strictly medical. No one should have to feel ashamed or embarrassed about their body; help is available.
  • Advancements in surgical procedures have resulted in quicker recovery time and less pain and scarring for patients who have labiaplasties.

So, in order to know whether or not you are eligible for the surgery, consult an expert plastic surgeon. Discuss all the concerns with him. The surgeon will customize the surgery to get you the best result!

Why Guys Are Attracted To Large Breasts

jessica-rabbit-09

It’s a fact that no one can deny most men idolize large breasts. Each and every year women end up spending millions of cash on breast implants plus so many other cosmetic procedures that improves their breast size. Such procedures include breast enlargement pills, creams and pumps. A woman with larger breasts looks more attractive in her own eyes and in men’s eyes. So what is it about big breasts that attract guys towards females? Well, below are some of the reasons why men are very interested in gazing below the neck.

# A sign of fertility
Fuller breasts can be considered as a sign of increased fertility, and that’s why guys think a bigger bust is better. Research has shown that men are always looking for a mother figure and adequate big breasts as a sign of increased fertility. The fat that accumulates in a woman’s chest, bottom, hips and thighs is due to the influence of oestrogen, a hormone that affects a woman’s ability to conceive.

# Large breasts are a sign of good health

In their eyes, men see and thinks larger breasts advertise age, health and good genes. This makes the woman an ideal sexual partner.

# Arousal
Many men prefer a lady with some large-shapely breasts since this turns them on. Not that those women with small breasts can’t be any turn-on, but with most men, it’s in the blood to like a women with full-figure and especially on top.

# Touchable
Small breasts are just okay, but it boils down to most guys being able to touch something big and firm. During a sexual intercourse, or just when playing around and having some fun, men appreciate a lady with a little more on top. This is not only very pleasing to look and touch, which make the arousal even more intense, but big breasts are also there for men to fondle.

# Fantasy and play things
Fantasy is a big thing especially with guys and large breasts. Big breasts are simply more noticeable; this gives men so many ideas about what to do with them. Large breasts are also like toys. Men love playing with them.

# Guy thing
When men are around their boys, they have to love big breasts. Just like discussing their favorite football team, men talk about breast size and shape when they are all together. And in most cases, all of them agree that a lady with larger breasts is much more attractive than one with smaller breasts.

# Marketing
Movies, TV and even ads give men ideas from a very young age that big breasts are very synonymous with intimacy. This is what most men are programmed to think as sexy and also attractive. Such a woman is the full package or maybe their dream lady.

There are so many reasons why most men prefer women with larger breasts and from what we have seen, big breasts play a very big role in the culture and society today. It’s now clear that the amount of energy, time, money and emotion directed to breast enlargement is justified.

The 10 Worst Reasons To Have Plastic Surgery

plastic surgery

Most plastic surgeons will tell you that they are very busy all the time, as cosmetic procedures are increasingly common. In fact, according to reports from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2011 there were over 9 million cosmetic procedures in the United States, and surgical procedures accounted for 18 percent of that total. Clearly Americans have embraced cosmetic procedures, and with good reason. Plastic surgery can deliver benefits like a younger appearance or a flat tummy.

As desirable as that flat tummy or higher bust line might be, sometimes people choose plastic surgery for the wrong reasons. Sometimes people are unsatisfied with their results if they elect to have plastic surgery for the wrong reasons. Before making an appointment with a plastic surgeon, review this list of top 10 reasons not to have plastic surgery, to make sure you won’t be one of those unhappy patients.

  1. Never have plastic surgery to please someone else. It’s your body, and only you can decide what’s right for you. You should only undergo a procedure if the potential benefit is something you want.
  2. Don’t have a cosmetic procedure to save a marriage or relationship.It doesn’t work. Plastic surgery won’t change the dynamics of your relationship. If the relationship is going to end, it will end even if you have a procedure done.
  3. Don’t try to look like a celebrity (or anyone else.) Only in soap operas can plastic surgery make you look exactly like someone else.
  4. Don’t assume liposuction or a tummy tuck will help you to control your weight. It won’t. Although you may enjoy a temporary smaller size, it still takes proper nutrition and regular exercise to maintain that slim body.
  5. You have health issues. If you’re overweight, have high blood pressure, diabetes or another serious health condition, don’t compound your risk with an unnecessary operation.
  6. Don’t have plastic surgery to boost your career. Even if you work in media where good looks or a young face are prerequisites for the job, your career isn’t worth it if you have to undergo a surgical procedure to keep that job.
  7. Don’t have surgery because you think everybody does it. There are always some risks with any surgical procedure, and you should only agree to take that risk for a result that you truly want. Your friends will still be your friends even if you don’t have cosmetic work done.
  8. Don’t assume cosmetic surgery will solve your problems. Cosmetic procedures won’t solve anything. When you’re done, you’ll still have bills and you’ll still hate your boss. Surgery is not the solution to problems in your life.
  9. Never get cosmetic surgery if you are depressed. Wait until you have resolved your depression before undergoing a cosmetic procedure. That way you can be certain the procedure is something you really want.
  10. You’ve had several procedures done already. If you find yourself asking for one procedure after another, you may be looking for something that a cosmetic surgery can’t fix. You should examine your life to find out what it is that you are really after before opting for another operation.

If you’ve gone through the list and none of these reasons apply to you, then pick up your phone and make an appointment with the best plastic surgeon you can find.

Why Do Celebrities Cover Up Cosmetic Surgery?

face_marked_up_for_surgery

by Dani Porter

Celebrities, Hollywood A-listers in particular, are often reticent about owning up to any cosmetic work they have have done to their face or body – when in reality they are proportionately the largest demographic who undertake such procedures.

There are some who openly talk of their plastic surgery, but these are the exception rather than the norm. Is this natural and mirrored in ‘real life’ plastic surgery patients too, or is it a peculiarly celeb thing to hide it? And if celebrities or indeed others do hide it, is there anything inherently wrong in that? Should there be an obligation to disclose such surgery, especially if you are in the public eye?

An Impossible Pressure?

The problem with celebrities is that they are revered for how they look and many are also put on a pedestal and heralded as examples that people should follow. This puts pressure on them in multiple ways.

The first is that they need to look their best all the time, possibly even achieving aesthetic perfection. As a result there is more pressure to look at their optimum, but also a pressure to reinforce the myth that they are naturally perfect – creating more distance between them and ordinary folk. On top of this there is sometimes an (unrealistic perhaps) expectation for stars to act as role models.

When you combine all of these factors it’s easy to see why celebrities may opt for cosmetic surgery in the first place, and then go about hiding it – it all helps to present a shiny veneer, that they are somehow aesthetically ‘better’ than the rest of us.

Let’s not forget too that they have a job to do; in many cases (particularly female) it is safe to assume that the pressure comes from within their industry, too. For actors, for instance, it may better for their career to opt for nips and tucks – and possibly detrimental if they don’t. Hollywood in particular is notoriously obsessed with beauty and youth.

The Plastic Surgery Taboo

This attitude of ‘undergo but keep quiet’ about plastic surgery has trickled down to the mainstream, where currently many of the techniques used set out to achieve natural or subtle results. Why, then, do the non-famous also cover up? Perhaps there is something in our psychology that makes us want to keep up the pretense of looking good naturally; this may boil down to the basic human trait of competition, which is, according to Darwin, essentially what keeps us alive.

This is evidenced by trends in plastic surgery, where a tummy tuck may follow childbirth so as not to appear obvious, masked as it is by natural change. Or breast implant patients who opt for more naturally shaped implants and results.

Plastic surgeon Adrian Richards has noticed this in his clinic:

“It’s not uncommon for patients to request an operation, say breast augmentation or rhinoplasty – procedures that are typically quite noticeable, to yield subtle results. They specifically request that people may observe an improvement but can’t pinpoint what, or necessarily detect surgery.”

Damned If You Admit It, Damned If You Don’t

In the case of non-famous patients covering up their surgery, they are hurting no-one and that is their personal decision. Perhaps, though, if celebrities insist that their looks are all ‘natural’ when they are not, it is less innocuous. That said, by forcing stars to admit to it, it’s simply putting further expectations on them rather than valuing their personal choices as a human being.

Also, stars will attract criticism whether they admit to it (in the form of ridicule – see Heidi Montag), or for denying it (see constant before and after shots peddled in the media). They simply can’t win, so refusing to talk on the subject is perhaps just a pragmatic response to limit public interest.

The Dangers of Butt Implants

buttimplant20n-2-web

Like any kind of surgical procedure, getting butt implants have some risk for the patient. Risks are typically very low for cosmetic procedures such as this, but it is still important to be informed of all dangers should the worst happen.

Implant Breaks – While it is very rare for this to occur, implants are capable of breaking. If this happens they need to be replaced. The good news is since the procedure was already done, the insertions have already been made, so it should go smoothly and quickly.

Fluid Collections – At times a clear fluid called seroma develops around the implant. When this occurs, a simple office visit to drain it out will fix it.

More Surgery – Some patients forget that a foreign object is being inserted into their body. Like other surgeries that do this, revisions may need to be made. This can happen if the implants are too large, too small or they need to be adjusted to suit the patient’s wishes.

Skin Damage – After the procedure, it is possible for skin to scar or stretch. At times this is only temporary, but it can be permanent.

Infections – This can happen with any surgical procedure, and should be dealt with as soon as possible. When this occurs in butt implants, the implants will be taken out until the infection is clear, at which time they can be put back in.

Nerve Damage – Nerves can be injured during the operation but it is very rare. What is common is numbness, but this goes away after a short time.

Bleeding – Bleeding can occur during or after any procedure. The worst case scenario will require another surgery to stop the bleeding, but this seldom occurs.

General Pain – Pain can be somewhat severe, but it is mitigated through strong pain medications. Pain can last up to a month, but the severe pain usually only lasts around a week.

Loss of Time From Work – Time is money after all. After an operation such as this patients will not be able to go to work for a predicted time based on how the procedure went.

These are some dangers of getting butt implants. They are pretty rare but can happen. As with a cosmetic procedure, it is important for potential patients to do thorough research and find the right surgeon. Checking to see whether they have official certifications is essential for both quality, and safety when having surgery done.

Top Story – Oh Yes They Did! 3 Celebrities You Never Thought Had Plastic Surgery

Celebrities are constantly under the spotlight, so they work hard to look young and beautiful. Some of them even go to extreme measures and get plastic surgery. Whether it’s breast implants or a nose job, a plastic surgery procedure can help celebrities feel better about themselves. These plastic surgery procedures can help them feel more confident and beautiful. With that being said, here are three celebrities you probably never thought went under the knife.

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres

When you think of Ellen DeGeneres, you probably do not think of her as someone who received plastic surgery. She just seems so much more relatable than other celebrities and not someone who would go under the knife to look better. Well, Ellen has actually has received a face and eyelift to make herself look more youthful. These procedures definitely made her look more fresh and beautiful. However, she does not talk about her surgeries like other celebrities do. She is very modest because they go against the image she is trying to portray.

Jennifer Aniston

jennifer_aniston-photo

Jennifer Aniston is definitely one of the more naturally beautiful celebrities out there. She eats well, works out regularly and takes good care of her skin. Many people consider her to be the girl next door because she just looks so pretty and wholesome. However, Jennifer is no stranger to plastic surgery. She has actually received a nose job to slim the bridge of her nose. The surgery was very subtle, so it is unlikely that anybody noticed she had a nose job. It just made her face look a little softer and more feminine.

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie was not born with very big breasts, so she decided to get breast implants to enhance them. However, she did not go to the extreme like a lot of celebrities tend to do. Instead of getting breast implants as big as her head, she decided to just increase her breast size by one cup. They definitely look more natural on her small frame. In fact, they are so natural looking that you can’t even tell her breasts are not real.

As you can see, not all celebrities like to flaunt their plastic surgeries. Instead of drastically altering their appearances, some of them just received plastic surgery to enhance their features a little bit. These plastic surgery procedures likely made them feel more confident without feeling fake or unnatural.

 

Peter Wendt has followed the lives of the rich and famous for several years from his home in Austin, Texas.  Over the years he’s seen his fair share of regretful nose jobs, and botched breast implants.  However, he has never met a disappointed patient of this Cosmetic Dermatologist in San Mateo.

 

Male Vanity: The Top 5 Cosmetic Surgeries For Men

male-plastic-surgery

When people think of cosmetic surgery, what first comes to mind is women having procedures done in an attempt to look more youthful. This is somewhat justified, with men only taking up a small percentage in the overall cosmetic surgery market in the past. In recent years, however, more and more men are looking into different cosmetic procedures to enhance their look or feel. There are a few procedures that seem to be more popular than others among men in the United States.

Liposuction – Liposuction is a procedure that sucks the fat off of unwanted areas in the body. Men typically use this procedure to remove fat from love handles, legs and the neck in order to lose weight and have a younger look. Those who choose to have liposuction cannot find a way to lose the weight, and they figure since there are only minute scars and little risk, it is a solid solution to their problem.

Blepharoplasty – Also known as eyelid surgery, Blepharoplasty removes unwanted wrinkles from the eyes to give patients a younger, brighter look. Men have this procedure in order to look younger and to have more success in the job market and other social functions.

Rhinoplasty – Nose reshaping is a more common name for this procedure. Those who have Rhinoplasty done do so if they feel like their nose is too large for their face or that is have other imperfections. This procedure offers a permanent solution to any potential issues men might have.

Breast Reduction – Some men suffer from medical issues, such as gynecomastia, which is the abnormal development of breast tissue within men. This procedure removes fat tissue and skin. Between 40 and 60 percent of men in the United States suffer from gynecomastia.

Otoplasty – Otoplasty, otherwise known as ear surgery, is done for those who believe they have protruding ears, large ears or oddly shaped ears. Men turn to this procedure to reshape their ears to give them a younger look. This procedure also has very little risk and leaves small scars behind the ears where few can see them.

As more men want to look and feel younger, they are turning to cosmetic surgery to fulfill their wants and needs. Many are becoming healthier, by eating better and working out, yet they do not look the way they feel. Cosmetic procedures such as these can help men accomplish their goals and give them confidence in everyday life.

Making Breast Implants Look Natural

Heidi-Klum-

The decision to get implants requires women to think carefully about the preferred look. The key to getting a natural look depends on the woman and her body type, but certain tricks can provide a smoother and natural look without making it obvious that an implant is creating the full appearance.

Select the Material Carefully:

Some breast implant materials will naturally cause a fake look because it does not move in the right way. Natural breasts have a certain look and movement that is soft and flexible. Implants can end up looking too stiff, tight or rigid when the wrong material is selected.

The best material for implants is usually silicone because it looks and feels more natural than a saline implant. The reason that saline is better to avoid is the rigidity and blown-up balloon look. Saline implants are a salt-water solution in a small balloon-like encasement. As a result, the appearance of the implant is fake and unnatural.

Talk With a Surgeon About Appropriate Sizing:

Although the general rule is to avoid increasing the cup size more than one to one and one-half the original size, the exact sizing calculation is based on body measurements the surgeon takes during a consultation. The best size will vary based on a woman’s body type and measurements, so it is important to ask the surgeon about appropriate sizing before selecting a size.

If the size increases too much, then the breasts will look unnatural and fake. The reason for the unnatural appearance is that lack of normal drop and droopiness. Natural breasts have a certain droop and fall that is not present when implants get too large.

Place the Implants Under the Muscle:

Although surgeons allow women to choose the placement of implants, it will always look more natural to place it below the muscles. The reason is the amount of natural tissue over the implant is increased. Since the tissue amount is increased, the look of implants is improved.

Use Social Media to Find Before and After Pictures:

The best way to get a natural look is by giving pictures to a surgeon showing the preferred results. Social media outlets are a great place to find information and details about different results women have when they get implants.

By looking at social media sights and seeing the advice or suggestions of other women, it is possible to get a better idea of the best solution for a personal body type. The best images to show a surgeon are the ones that look natural and have a similar body type. A great surgeon will have a good idea of the sizing, look and location that a woman prefers based on the images and the results in the after pictures.

Implants do not always look natural due to several possible factors. When the implants are improperly placed or the surgeon does not make suggestions about sizing, women can face disappointing results. Taking measures to ensure the implants look as natural as possible will provide better results and clear instructions to the surgeon.

Top 5 Most Famous Celebrity Lips

Celebs have been well-saught after for many decades due to their beautiful looks, tone bodies, and lavish lifestyles. They have some of the most enhanced features (some of them clearly not natural), and oftentimes many women and men will have cosmetic surgery to try and look more like their favorite female celeb.

Although there have been many different trends with whether lips look better thin or incredibly full and plump, there are still some celebs in Hollywood who have stood the test of time with their beautiful, natural lips — sometimes making them even more famous.

1. Angelina Jolie

When someone hears the word “lips” in Tinsletown, they immediately think of Angelina Jolie for being the poster girl for beautiful puckers. It’s one of her best features, and many women have tried enhancing them to look just as beautiful. Fortunately, these babies are real after many photos have surfaced of her as a child with the same full lips. Her feature may not be a big deal for some, but it has landed her plenty of movie rolls and been one of the factors that have made her on the most beautiful list in Hollywood.

2. Christy Turlington

Christy Turlington may have model looks, but she also has model lips to match her gorgeous face and figure. Her upper lip is just a tad larger than her lower one, and all-natural as she’s been modeling for years and having a successful career due to them. She’s even been the face for many beauty product companies to advertise their lip products.

3. Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson would still be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood without such full lips, but lucky for her she was dealt a good hand in life. Her luscious lips are soft and incredibly natural with a bit of innocence to them. It doesn’t hurt that she also knows who to pose perfectly with her lips to show them off just enough.

4. Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger may be one of the most famous singers around, but when people go to see The Rolling Stones, they still just stare at his lips. Although his overall looks are not favored by many, his lips are sought after and give him a nice, quirky look. For men, he won the jackpot on his lips and has never been shy with showing them off.

5. Julia Roberts

The girl next door in Hollywood still can have the hottest lips and look innocent at the same time. Julia Roberts has always had the most beautiful puckers in Hollywood and has made them famous in films like “Pretty Woman” or “Eat Pray Love.” Her natural good looks and lack of plastic surgery (at least to our knowledge) have kept her looking fresh and young well into her 40’s. Some say her lips are real, some say they’re fake, but we don’t care. They’re still beautiful and made her a notable leading female in Hollywood for her natural charm and easy good looks.

Cosmetic Surgery For Men: How to Achieve a Body Like James Bond

If you’ve seen Daniel Craig in his famous blue swimming shorts (Casino Royale, 2006), you might be wondering how to get a body like the James Bond star? While there are many natural ways to improve your physique, there are also plenty of cosmetic procedures available – so let’s take a look at some of the most popular:

Male Chest Reduction

Do you suffer from gynaecomastia – the overgrowth of male breast tissue? If so, you might want to do something about your man boobs or ‘moobs’. Luckily, male chest reductions are available at clinics across the UK and can significantly reduce the size of your chest. During surgery, liposuction is used to remove excess fat from the body and loose skin is cut away if necessary.

Tummy Tuck

If you want abs like 007 himself, a male tummy tuck could be just what you need. Abdominoplasty surgery (as it is medically called) can help remove skin after excessive weight loss and is designed to tighten up the abdominal muscles – leaving you with a more toned torso. Typically, the tissues between the pubic area and the top of the belly button are cut away and the tummy button is repositioned as necessary.

Eye Bag Removal

You would never see Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan or Craig arriving at the bar with large bags under their eyes. They have to look awake, alert and on top of their game at all times, so if you want to follow in their footsteps it might be time to consider eye bag removal. There are three main types of blepharoplasty surgery available, but all are designed to get rid of bags and correct sagging eyelids.

Nose Job

According to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty was the most popular type of cosmetic surgery for men during 2011. A total of 1,043 males had their nose readjusted that year, with numbers up by five per cent from 2010. It’s fair to say James Bond is renowned for his attractive features, so if you’re not happy with your hooter – here’s one solution that might be worth looking at.

Hair Transplant

What would our favorite MI6 agent be without a full head of hair? A well-groomed barnet is a big part of his identity, so if you are going bald, it might be worth considering a hair transplant. During the procedure, a surgeon plucks out a few strands of hair before starting the re-implantation process. Results are natural and virtually undetectable, making it a great option for men.

Everything from tummy tucks to gynaecomastia surgery is available these days, but would you have work done?

5 Reasons Not To Have Plastic Surgery

Each time you open a magazine or newspaper you are confronted with pictures and articles on celebrities and it is not difficult to spot the ones that have had cosmetic surgery. As more clinics become established it is getting easier for people to have any of a growing range of procedures in the search for physical perfection.

There are many aspects to consider before deciding to undergo plastic surgery and there are occasions in life when it would be easy to think that surgery would be the answer. It is not something to enter into lightly and some situations that require more serious consideration than normal. There are some instances when it is better not to have plastic surgery.

Financial Considerations

Your financial position is a big consideration when you are looking at plastic surgery, as it is not covered by health insurance and will need to be privately funded. In the current economic climate it is unwise to commit yourself to more than you can comfortably afford. As with any surgery there is the potential for the unexpected to happen. On the rare occasion something adverse does happen solicitors are available to assist with any difficulties.

Health Issues

Surgery of any kind can be complicated when the patient has other health problems, such as hemophilia, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, lung conditions, allergies, if they are overweight and if they drink or smoke heavily. People considering plastic surgery who have any health concerns should speak to their GP first about their intention and be sure to inform the surgeon of underlying conditions during the initial consultation. It is easier to deal with potential problems when all the facts are known.

Decisions Influenced by Relationships

Some people may find themselves in a position where they feel that plastic surgery is the only option they have to make a situation better. Making life-changing decisions when you are going through a bad time in your life is not a wise thing. It is human nature to want to get back at an ex–partner, for instance, by trying to show him what he has given up, but it is not a good enough reason to make potentially drastic changes that cannot be reversed. Besides, there are plenty more fish in the sea!

Some people may be in a relationship where they feel that they are not attractive enough and that changing the shape of their nose or size of their breasts, for example, would make their partners fancy them more. Is having surgery what you really want or is it what your partner wants? Having surgery that will permanently alter your body for someone else is not a good idea, as things can change and you may wish that you hadn’t. It may be better to change the partner than change your body!

Emotional Decisions

If you are unhappy with your life it is not a good idea to think that changing your appearance is going to make you happy. Unhappiness is more likely to be caused by being in the wrong job than your body shape. Having plastic surgery will not change how you feel about your job, the place you live or make you less bored with your life. If things do not go well with the surgery or you don’t like the results it will only add to the situation. Find out why you feel unhappy and change that first; if you still feel that surgery will help, go for it.
