When headlines recently alleged that celebrity Kylie Jenner may be pregnant, many wondered if the reality star would continue to get her signature lip fillers during pregnancy. In recent years, Jenner has become equally as well known for her allegedly cosmetically enhanced physique as she has for her reality show. But what many people may not realize is that cosmetic treatments like lip fillers and Botox aren’t safe for pregnant women - and no reputable doctor will perform them on a pregnant patient.
Why? Because there have been no studies proving the effects of Botox or fillers on an unborn child. While there have been cases of women getting these procedures without knowing they are pregnant and going on to deliver healthy babies, there is no guarantee that this will be true for every patient, and it's simply not worth the risk.
She’s beautiful, she’s polished and she’s becoming one of the most requested faces in plastic surgery today. Following in the footsteps of her fashion-mogul stepdaughter Ivanka, Melania Trump’s face is rising in popularity among patients looking for plastic surgery procedures.
It used to be that when people thought about plastic surgery, they considered it a luxury reserved for those in the very top tiers of society, such as celebrities and socialites. Today, thanks to lower prices and more surgeons, plastic surgery has become more accessible to the middle class, and though it is still often thought of as a luxury, an increasing number of Americans have undergone plastic surgery procedures.
If you think back to 30, 20 or even 10 years ago, plastic surgery used to be a very taboo topic. Tabloid magazine covers hinted, suggested and outright accused celebrities of "having work done," and whether they did or not, most of these suggestions were met with denial. Today, while much has changed to make plastic surgery more accessible and more acceptable, many celebrities still will not admit to having surgical procedures or fillers - and many tabloid magazines still publish what they believe to be "before and after" shots to back up their theories.
Breast augmentation is the No. 1 plastic surgery procedure in America, increasing in popularity by 31 percent since the year 2000, and up 4 percent just since 2015. However, for as much attention that has been paid to the breast, very little has been paid to the nipple. But that may be changing, as an increasing number of women are turning to plastic surgeons for nipple augmentation procedures.
When you think about undergoing a plastic surgery procedure, you’re probably only thinking about the physical outcome of your surgery. A breast augmentation will give you fuller breasts with less sagging, while a rhinoplasty may straighten a crooked nose or remove a bump. But what you may not consider is the positive effect that procedure might have on the rest of your life!
A Xinhua, China, woman was recently apprehended after fleeing from her home in Xinhua to the city of Shenzen in an attempt to evade payment of $3.7 million in personal credit card debt. But when police located 59-year-old Zhu Najuan, they received quite a surprise.
"According to news reports, Ms. Najuan had undergone so much plastic surgery, she was nearly unrecognizable," says Henderson, Nevada, plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Mitchell.
Researchers at the Osaka Medical College in Osaka, Japan, have recently developed an augmented reality (AR) program that could assist plastic surgeons during surgical procedures. The program works by creating a 3D simulation of the patient’s desired results and then using AR to project those results over the patient’s face during the procedure.
Researchers Koichi Ueda, Ph.D., and Daisuke Mitsuno, M.D., believe the AR program could assist with eight current common surgical procedures, with more possible as the technology further develops.
