Most Coveted Celebrity Body Parts

 

According to statistics, 17.1 million cosmetic procedures were performed back in 2016. From breast augmentation, through liposuction, nose reshaping and eyelid surgery, to facelifts and tummy tucks, people are turning to plastic surgery more often every year, when they don’t feel happy with their body. However, they don’t just look for a random nose reshaping or breast augmentation, but for specific body parts of actors, singers, or starlets. From Matthew McConaughey’s abs to Madonna’s cheekbones, people hope to look like their favourite celebrity more and more each day.

Nose

The nose is one of the most prominent facial features, and it makes a lot of difference to a person’s looks. A big nose isn’t flattering, while a small one can make some other features of face anatomy more noticeable and put the entire face in disproportion. On the other hand, the size doesn’t have to be an issue every time. Aside from being too big or too small, someone might have a crooked nose, and surgery can be the only way to make it straight and proportional. Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Nicole Kidman are just some of the celebrities whose noses seem to be the most wanted among the patients, because they’re perfectly proportional.

Lips

The facial anatomy can appear entirely different with thin lips than it can with a full pout. Thin lips give out an impression of a less sexy appearance, which happens to be the main reason for people all over the world to undergo a lip injection procedure. Angelina Jolie’s lips are definitely the most wanted among patients, since they are perfectly full and balanced with the plump bottom lip and a slightly thinner upper lip, that shape the flawless pout.

Buttocks

Many women yearn for a nicely rounded and well-shaped backside, since most of them didn’t have the luck to be born with one. While some of them have tried working out and didn’t reach their goal, others skipped that step and turned immediately to a professional to request a procedure that will give them the perfectly shaped buttocks. Beyoncé’s gluteus has been the synonym for a well-shaped bootie, and lately, Kim Kardashian’s has been a real competition, with more women wanting precisely the backside of this controversial starlet.

Abs

Nicely shaped abs are one of the most attractive features of the human anatomy. This is especially true for men, who are eager to show off a good-looking six-pack. Matthew McConaughey’s and Channing Tatum’s abs are the most wanted among men, according to plastic surgeons. Thanks to a non-invasive body sculpting procedure, the patients can quickly reach their goal. After the fat cells are frozen and eliminated with the cooling procedure, they’re forever gone from their tummy, offering a perfect figure, that will need only a little bit of exercise to look as good as Matthew’s or Channing’s.

Cheekbones

Years certainly can’t do a thing to this megastar, because as the time goes by, people don’t cease to strive for having exactly the same cheekbones as Madonna. They’re perfectly high, which can make a person look regal, while they add a dose of youthfulness as well.

From cheekbones, through abs and buttocks, to a symmetrical nose and perfect lips, people try to look more like celebrities every day, by wanting some of their body features. However, sometimes, it takes more than just a visit to the plastic surgeon to reach the goal. Remember that recoveries from some surgeries take a lot of time, so make sure you always consult with the doctor before you decide to go under the knife.

5 Indicators Why You Might Need Rhinoplasty Revision

5 Indicators Why You Might Need Rhinoplasty Revision

Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most complicated procedures performed in the cosmetic arena. As a result, it is one of the procedures where we see the highest percentage of revisionary surgery. Some surgeons even specialize exclusively in revisionary rhinoplasty surgery alone. Thus, it is very important to do your homework and choose your surgeon wisely to reduce the risk of needing a second operation.

  1. Too much or too little was removed from your nose. Most patients requesting a rhinoplasty surgery want a smaller and more refined nose. In years past, surgeons over aggressively removed cartilage and bone from the nose leaving a pinched appearance with a constricted airway. The situation frequently led to the need for revisionary surgery. Some surgeons who were too conservative also have left too much tissue behind. This is an easier situation to remedy, but still requires a secondary operation. The goal of a successful rhinoplasty is to remove just enough to enhance the appearance of the nose while still providing sufficient support to maintain an open airway. Every patient is different and an experienced surgeon is required to assess the situation and choose the most effective treatment.
  2. Rhinoplasty is a surgery of millimeters – literally. Every millimeter makes a difference in rhinoplasty, and thus even the smallest discrepancy can be evident after surgery. If the nose does not appear perfect on the operating table, or as close to perfect as one can make it, it is likely to become an issue after surgery. Thus, you want to choose a physician who appreciates the intricacy of rhinoplasty surgery.
  3. Scar tissue is frequently the enemy in rhinoplasty. Once a surgeon has finished his/her surgery, they lose control of the operation. What this means is that the presence of scar tissue can distort or pull on the underlying bone and cartilage framework after the surgery is complete. Thus, there can be warping or movement of the tissues as a result of scar tissue contraction. This is normally evident several months after the conclusion of your surgery, and is not normally a result of an improperly performed surgery. If this does occur, frequently a revisionary surgery is required.
  4. You are a perfectionist. We frequently see patients who are requesting a rhinoplasty to be very detailed in their assessment of what is wrong with their nose before surgery. As a result, they frequently will search out any abnormalities, no matter how slight, after surgery. No surgeon can get a perfect result, and almost certainly there will become imperfections in the nose after the conclusion of even the best rhinoplasty. The goal in rhinoplasty is a significant improvement in one’s appearance, better balance and refinement and achieving the patient’s aesthetic goals – not perfection. Thus, it is important to accept this fact prior to undergoing any surgical procedure as we as surgeons do not have magic wands.
  5. You may have chosen the wrong doctor. It is important to make sure that your doctor has significant experience in rhinoplasty surgery. Many doctors, even well trained plastic and facial plastic surgeons, do not get enough experience with rhinoplasty, and as a result, have a higher revision rate. Additionally, your doctor could be either not be Board Certified or Certified in the wrong specialty. In most states, ANYONE who is licensed to perform ANY surgical procedures can legally perform cosmetic surgery – as long as they went to a weekend course, pay a fee and have a couple procedures supervised. Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and Facial Plastic Surgeons rigorously train for 5-7 years to learn the intricacies of these procedures, detailed anatomy, the proper finesse, and the management of any complications.

Do your homework before you decide to have any cosmetic surgical procedure.
