When Celebrity Botox Goes Wrong, Stars Are Scary Looking!

Facelift San FranciscoCosmetic surgeon San Francisco says that plastic surgery is not just the preserve of the rich and famous celebrities these days. With the lower costs of cosmetic procedures, people are taking advantage of cheap operations abroad or cut price procedures, botox Bay Area, nose jobs, facelift San Francisco, breast augmentation, liposuction and etc are now options for all of us. Sometimes though, we still need our peers to remind us of what can go wrong if we over do it, says tummy tuck Bay Area patient.

There are many well publicized instances of celebrity plastic surgery which has gone wrong such Melanie Griffith, Heidi Montag, Tara Reid, Madonna and Kate Gosselin with her recent Botox procedure.

Of course, for celebrities who wish to remain in the public eye for as long as they are able, the option of botox and plastic surgery is really a necessity and there are many instances of successful interventions.

Kate Gosselin, 35, the former star of “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” denies that she has started using Botox, despite signs to the contrary.

A ” source close to Gosselin” told People Magazine that “Kate thinks it’s hilarious that one photo of her with her eyebrows raised has caused such a stir. It’s ridiculous–she hasn’t done anything.” In fact, more than one photo shows her with the typical arched eyebrows of a woman with imbalanced Botox injections.

Whilst everybody hopes to grow old gracefully, it is amazing how much effort is taken now to erase the appearance of ageing. Thirty years ago, many women, and indeed men, would make regular hair coloring their only concession to the onset of middle age.

Today's image conscious generation make many more concessions to ageing. The prevalence of Botox and arrival of cheaper plastic surgery have prompted many to consider cosmetic surgery as the only viable way of growing old gracefully. Certainly, the perfection of our Hollywood inspired plastic society requires as much attention to appearance as possible, to achieve an outward semblance of beauty for as long as possible.



Is a Browlift Right for You?

San Francisco Plastic SurgeonDo you ever wonder how celebrities like Demi Moore, Halle Berry or Jennifer Anniston manage to look so young? Do you also wonder what their bizarre secrets are in keeping their skin from looking saggy or stretched out?

These ladies are over their forties and to many of us still look like they are in their early to mid thirties. It seems rare that these women could look so young for their age and many of us may be inclined to believe it’s genetics that make them look so good says San Francisco cosmetic surgeon.

These ladies spend a lot of time to looking fantastic with a combination of eating a healthy diet, exercising and also by going through cosmetic treatments to improve their skin to look youthful naturally. While you cannot stop or even reverse the aging process with current medical technology you can improve frown lines and burrows of the forehead with a browlift or forehead lift say San Francisco facelift specialist.

A browlift or forehead lift provides a more youthful look to the eyebrows and upper eyelids by correcting drooping of the eyebrows. According to Bay Area eyelid surgery expert, this procedure can often provide a solution for patients who constantly look tired or sad. The appearance is primarily due to sagging of the outer one-third of the eyebrow and results in crow’s feet and redundancy of tissue just outside the corner of the eye in the temple area ultimately creating a tired look. Treating this area by lifting the temple and outer third of the eyebrow can produce a rested energetic appearance. You can simulate the affect of a browlift by placing your palms at the outer edge of your eyes above your eyebrows and gently raise the skin upward while looking in a mirror. Along with raising the brow, various muscles that contribute to frowning can be treated to soften the vertical frown lines above the nose. These are the same lines that temporarily respond very well to botox says San Francisco botox expert.

There are many techniques that can be used to perform a browlift. In traditional or “open” techniques, a larger incision is used that is placed all the way across the scalp from ear to ear, either behind the hairline or just in front of the hairline. This incision allows the forehead tissues to be lifted and the muscles to be treated, all giving a smoother, more youthful appearance. The technique works very well but results in a large scar and some scalp numbness. Newer techniques focus on several small incisions that are hidden very well in the scalp. Along with the improved scar, numbness is usually not a problem and results can be equally as good. The newer techniques may or may not use an endoscope which is a camera that can assist with visualization through these smaller incisions. The muscles can also be treated as in the “open” technique. There are many variations of these less invasive techniques but as a whole, these techniques are more popular today than the traditional open browlift.
