Brooke Shields, famed eyebrow specialist Anastasia Soare, and Allergan (makers of eyelash enhancer Latisse) have teamed up to help the Make a Wish Foundation. The Latisse Wishes campaign was begun to help raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation, on the idea that people make a wish when they blow on an eyelash. The company has donated an initial amount of $500,000 to Make a Wish, and plan to donate another $5 for each person who signs up on www.Latisse.com up to a total of $1 million.
So far we are seeing very good results from Latisse. I am currently in the middle of filming a local TV segment where we follow a woman who’s using it. So far, five weeks into her treatment, she’s noticing a nice enhancement of her eyelashes.
I’ve never been one to make a wish on an eyelash that falls out. I just hate it when one falls out and sticks to my cheek for several hours.

Brooke Shields has recently commented that she would not have plastic surgery due to her “claustrophobia.” She stated, “I tried, like, Botox in my forehead… I got so claustrophobic. I would get claustrophobia if I had breast implants. I’d be like, ‘Get them out, get them out.’ My husband’s very upset about that though. “It’s a very foreign, man-made object in your body… I’m also attached to my face. It’s been around in the public eye for so long.”
Now, I get claustrophobic myself when lying in the bottom bunk of a bunkbed or trying to sleep in “couchettes” when riding the trains in Europe, but I’ve never had a patient complain about claustrophobia with plastic surgery.
