Christina Aguilera – Armpit Scar From Breast Augmentation?

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

This photo from The Daily Mail appears to show a scar in Christina Aguilera’s armpit.  Could this scar be from a breast augmentation?

One of the more popular ways to perform breast augmentation is through the armpit.  This is my preferred technique when the patient wants to avoid scars on her breasts.  There are two concerns with this technique, though.  First, it’s extremely difficult to put silicone implants through the armpit.  Some plastic surgeons may do this, but I prefer not to.  Second, unless the plastic surgeon has access to a fiberoptic endoscope, it may be difficult to stop bleeding or properly divide muscles that can hold the implants too high.

It’s tough to say whether this scar is from a breast augmentation.  I typically place my armpit scars along the normal armpit crease, not perpendicular to it, as appears in this photo.  Either this scar is from something else (hidradenitis anyone?) or her plastic surgeon put the scar in a funny place.

Psst… My inside sources tell me that she did have a breast augmentation performed several years ago in Westwood…


Maxim Magazine Hot 100 of 2007

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Maxim Magazine has unveiled their Hot 100 for 2007. Here are the top ten, and the “have they or haven’t they regarding plastic surgery” (my opinions, of course):

10: Fergie – Rhinoplasty and possible endoscopic browlift. See previous post.

9: Eva Longoria – People seem to either love her or hate her. I think she is gorgeous. No obvious plastic surgery that I can see. Possibly some Restylane in her lips?

8: Rihanna – Doubt it. Too young.

7: Eva Mendes – Nothing obvious. She has come out against plastic surgery. See link.

6. Ali Larter – Not obvious. She has thin lips which don’t look unnaturally augmented. Maybe some Botox in her forehead?

5. Jessica Biel – Her lips do appear to be augmented. Possibly with a permanent implant? See link.

4. Christina Aguilera – I’m a big fan of hers. She does appear to have had a breast augmentation and possible rhinoplasty, but who cares? She looks great and has a fantastic voice.

3. Scarlett Johansson – She has come out as being someone who would consider plastic surgery. See link. I like her. Her lips appear to be natural.

2. Jessica Alba – Hard to say. I think she may still be all natural.
1. Lindsay Lohan – She’s number one? Ay caramba. She appears to have had her lips augmented on more than one occasion, and a breast augmentation seems likely given her recent rapid size enlargement. I’ve posted on her a couple times. See link.

What do you all think?
