Nicole Kidman – Recent Breast Augmentation?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

This is a surprise, since it’s pretty uncommon for A-list actors and actresses to have fairly obvious plastic surgery.  Nicole Kidman recently resurfaced in Australia with a noticeably larger chest.  She appears to have gone from a large A to a full C.  I suspect that the surgery may been quite recent, as she looks like she may still be a bit swollen.  For more of my comments and actual photos, click HERE to go to RadarOnline.com.

 

Kardashian / Jenner Plastic Surgery?

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Are all of the Kardashian / Jenner clan having plastic surgery?  It looks like it to me!  I recently commented on surprising photos for Radar Online, showing what appears to be a nose job (rhinoplasty) for Kim and lip injections for Kendall Jenner.  You can read my comments and see the photos on Radar Online HERE and HERE.

 

Robbie Williams Admits To Hair Transplant

Monday, November 25th, 2013

This is a very common procedure in men, but few celebs have actually admitted to it.  Singer Robbie Williams has admitted to undergoing a hair transplant surgery.  From Sky News:

“I’ve lived in LA for a long time and they say, ‘If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough you’ll get a hair cut’.

“Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you’re going to get some surgery.

“I’ve had a thatch done, I’ll tell everyone now. I didn’t even need it, that’s the weirdest thing. I had like three months off and got bored so thought, I’ll go in.”

The star, who has recently been sporting a Pepe Le Pew-style streak in his hair, indicated the hair had been enhanced around the front of his hairline, rather than all over.

“I just got some at the sides and front done,” Williams revealed whilst filming the Graham Norton Show.

I don’t routinely perform hair transplant surgery, but have performed it numerous times in the past.  Today, the most up-to-date technique is follicular unit extraction (FUE) which creates the tiniest scars and is usually performed with the Neograft system.  Instead of doctors cutting a strip of scalp from the back of your head, he or she harvests the hairs one follicle at a time, leaving scars that can be virtually imperceptible.  If you are thinking about hair transplant, it’s probably a good idea to look into this method.

Has Renee Zellweger Had Botox Injections?

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Has Renee Zellweger lost her trademark look?  She always looks to me like she’s sucking on a lemon.  Recent photos, however, appear to show a completely different look, with her eyes wide open and none of the ‘lemon-sucking’ appearance.   I give my comments in an article from today’s Radar Online,  where I speculate that Botox injections may play a part in her current look.  You can read the article HERE.

Marilyn Monroe Plastic Surgery Items Up For Auction

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

A Southern California plastic surgeon is putting Marilyn Monroe’s cosmetic surgery records up for auction… with proceeds to benefit veterans who need reconstructive surgery.  These records were from Monroe’s encounters with Dr. Michael Gurdin, who reportedly inserted a bovine collagen chin implant and refined the tip of her nose.  The set also includes Monroe’s x-rays after a late-night fall, two months prior to her death.

They are estimating the items will bring in between $15,000 – $30,000.

Julie Chen Reveals She Had Asian Eyelid Plastic Surgery For TV

Friday, September 13th, 2013

I commend Julie Chen for coming forward with this. I’ve recently written an article for CNN.com about how popular Asian plastic surgery currently is. But how ethical is it for plastic surgeons to perform these procedures on young women? And are any of these women being coerced into having the surgery done? It all worked well for Julie, but what about those women who have surgeries with complications? Or girls under 18 who feel that if they don’t have eyelid and nose surgery then they will be considered ‘ugly?’

Paula Abdul Looks “Straight Up” Fantastic!

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Have you seen any photos of Paula Abdul lately?  She looks great.  Has she had a little work done to get there?  I think so.  I would speculate that she’s had some injections of Botox, filler, and some skin tightening treatments.  Check out my comments and Paula’s photos at Radar Online HERE.

 

Kelly Rowland At The Billboard Music Awards – Looking Great With Breast Implants

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Did you watch the Billboard Music Awards the other night?  I enjoyed the show, and even noticed some plastic surgery on the screen.  Some are, I believe, pretty obvious, like Wayne Newton’s face.  Others, like Kelly Rowland, just look fantastic.  This photo was taken Sunday night at the show.  Some of you may have known that she underwent a very tasteful breast augmentation a few years ago (check out this post from 2008 for before-and-after photos).  Today it looks like her breast implants have always been a part of her.  I believe she’s an example of great celeb plastic surgery.

Angelina Jolie – Prophylactic Mastectomy with Reconstruction Using Breast Implants

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

So you have probably all heard by now that Angelina Jolie was diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene and has undergone a double mastectomy with reconstruction.  The actress and director wrote a very poignant, well-written op-ed for the New York Times. Here is a segment of it:

On April 27, I finished the three months of medical procedures that the mastectomies involved. During that time I have been able to keep this private and to carry on with my work.

But I am writing about it now because I hope that other women can benefit from my experience. Cancer is still a word that strikes fear into people’s hearts, producing a deep sense of powerlessness. But today it is possible to find out through a blood test whether you are highly susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer, and then take action.

My own process began on Feb. 2 with a procedure known as a “nipple delay,” which rules out disease in the breast ducts behind the nipple and draws extra blood flow to the area. This causes some pain and a lot of bruising, but it increases the chance of saving the nipple.

Two weeks later I had the major surgery, where the breast tissue is removed and temporary fillers are put in place. The operation can take eight hours. You wake up with drain tubes and expanders in your breasts. It does feel like a scene out of a science-fiction film. But days after surgery you can be back to a normal life.

Nine weeks later, the final surgery is completed with the reconstruction of the breasts with an implant. There have been many advances in this procedure in the last few years, and the results can be beautiful.

I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope that they, too, will be able to get gene tested, and that if they have a high risk they, too, will know that they have strong options.

Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.

I applaud Angelina for coming forward and revealing her diagnosis and treatment.  Hopefully this helps to inform people not only about the potential diagnosis and treatment options for breast cancer, but also inform women about their reconstructive options.  Studies show that women who undergo immediate reconstruction after mastectomy benefit psychologically a great deal.

To read the rest of Angelina Jolie’s op-ed piece, click HERE.

If you’ve ever wondered how plastic surgeons reconstruct a woman’s breast after mastectomy, there is a very well-written article in CNN.com HERE.  I’m quoted in the article, which also describes how Angelina’s reconstruction was likely performed.

Tom Cruise- Looking Younger Than Ever

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

To honor Tom Cruise’s new hit movie, here’s a link to an analysis of how I think Tom looks so young, now into his 5th decade.  From MSNBC.com:

“I don’t think he’s found the Fountain of Youth, but I think he’s done the next best thing — found a good plastic surgeon,” says Youn,  a regular contributor to msnbc.com and TODAY.com. “He looks like someone who has had a plethora of the best cosmetic treatments available.”

Youn, who hasn’t treated Cruise, believes he’s had multiple procedures done. “To look as good as he does, it’s not possible to have had just one thing done.”

Does Hayden Panettiere Have Breast Implants? I Think So!

Friday, April 12th, 2013

I’ve liked actress Hayden Panettiere ever since she debuted as the indestructible cheerleader on “Heroes.”  The star of “Nashville” has been photographed wearing a bikini with a suspiciously larger chest.  Some photos even appear to show wrinkling that is consistent with saline breast implants.  You can see a photo of it, along with my comments on Radar Online.com HERE.

So what can Hayden do to reduce her possible implant wrinkling?  Implant wrinkling is typically improved by switching to a silicone implant, injecting fat into the breast tissue, or placing a sheet of Alloderm (acellular dermal matrix – radiated cadaver skin) over the implant.  Or she could gain weight, which would thicken the fat on her breasts.

Wrinkles or not, Hayden looks great.

Barbra Streisand – Wow! Looking Great For A 70 Year Old!

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Did you watch the Oscars last night?  I thought it was a mediocre show overall.  Loved seeing Anne Hathaway win an Oscar for her role in Les MiserablesArgo was a great movie as well.  I didn’t expect Ang Lee to win best director over Steven Spielberg.  But the biggest surprise of the night?

Barbra Streisand!

Can you believe that she’s seventy years old!  She looks amazing, with soft, full cheeks, a chiseled neckline, and smooth skin without any obvious signs of plastic surgery.  Because she looks so good, I suspect that she’s had some help from a plastic surgeon.  Maybe a facelift, some fat injections to her cheeks, and Botox in her forehead.  Kudos to whoever might be her plastic surgeon (not me) for doing a great job.

Her wrinkles are just a memory!

Alexa Ray Joel Addresses Rumors That She’s Had A Breast Augmentation

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Alexa Ray Joel has recently taken to her Facebook page to refute rumors she’s had a breast augmentation.  From her Facebook:

I would like to take a moment to respond with complete and unabashed honesty to the following links below from TMZ & Daily Mail (Mail Online), as well as the Daily News [which is not linked here]: Aside from getting Rhinoplasty-Surgery a few years ago– [which I have been blatantly honest and candid about in the past]– I have not had any further work done. (Not on my face, or anywhere else- for that matter.) I fervently believe that it should be every woman’s imperative to l…ove, accept, embrace, and celebrate their exterior– BUT: the act putting your “best self” forward– in every sense of the word– involves work that’s rooted from within. I have gone back to being a vegetarian, and I only eat all-organic now– which helps. It also helps to improve your skincare regimen- as I have recently done (I highly recommend “Skinceuticals” brand for top-quality tightening/moisturizing/firming/medical-grade skincare). What helps more drastically than even the most substantiated diet or skincare regimen? Confidence and Self-Esteem. I believe in the importance and value of approaching beauty from the inside-out, as opposed to the outside-in. If you begin to nourish yourself on every level: physically, mentally, spiritually, internally, externally, psychologically [the list goes on!]– and care for yourself properly, you are going to look and [much more importantly] FEEL 100% better. This is simply what I have done. Multiple Plastic Surgeries is NOT something that I support, endorse, encourage, or even remotely participate in. As for the difference in my pictures slated in the articles below: It’s simply the stark-visual contrast between effectively-applied makeup [check out Caitlin Monahan on Facebook for a completely natural "cosmetic lift" with only makeup!] and no makeup at all [with puffy eyes- we all get them sometimes- and- hey, that's fine with me].
Although her chest looks like it definitely could have been enhanced, I’ll give her the benefit of a doubt and take her word for it.  Since her dad is Billy Joel she can do no wrong, in my humble opinion.  She looks great, implants or not!

Lee Majors – A $60,000 Man?

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Has Lee Majors become a modern-day bionic man?  He sure looks a lot better than he should at his advanced age!  I gave my opinion of whether he may have had plastic surgery to the National Enquirer.  You can check out my comments HERE.

Jennifer Lopez Claims To Be Plastic Surgery-Free

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

So do you think that Jennifer Lopez has had plastic surgery? Yes?

Well, you’re wrong!  Or at least she says you are.  In a recent interview with People Magazine, J.Lo denied having plastic surgery but wouldn’t rule it out in the future.  From the NY Post:

J.Lo just says no to Botox, and from what we can see above this turtleneck, it’s working.

The ageless former “American Idol” judge said she’s never had plastic surgery or anti-wrinkle Botox treatments — but won’t rule it out in the future.

“When I need to, maybe I will,” Lopez, 43, says in the latest People magazine. “I don’t know how I’m gonna feel. I reserve the right to not know right now. And I don’t judge anybody who does it.”

I’ve heard rumors from one source that she’s had liposuction years ago.  I suspect that she’s also had a procedure to tighten her abdomen after having twins (such as a tummy tuck).  I’ve never seen signs of obvious Botox or filler injections, though.  So is it possible she’s telling the truth about being a plastic surgery virgin?

I suppose it’s possible, but it would be pretty difficult for a normal person to look as good as she does without at least some help from a plastic surgeon!

Golden Globes 2013 – Plastic Surgery Galore!

Monday, January 14th, 2013

So I’m watching the Golden Globe Awards tonight in HD in my living room, and I keep seeing examples of celebrity plastic surgery on my set.  So instead of an in-depth analysis, I thought I’d list the people who I believe have had work done, as I watch the show.  One note: I’m starting this about an hour in.

Jennifer Westfeldt – Actress and girlfriend of John Hamm – Her cheeks look puffy and chipmunk-like – Sculptra injections in her cheeks?

Hugh Jackman’s wife – Rhinoplasty, Botox in her forehead

Julie Bowen – Breast implants

Rosario Dawson – Breast implants

Kate Hudson – Breast implants

Jessica Lange – Browlift, Botox, Facelift

Megan Fox – Rhinoplasty, Botox

Nicole Kidman – Botox

Sylvester Stallone – Browlift, possible facelift?

Jay Leno – Chin implant

Mel Gibson – He just looks terrible.  Maybe the ugliness inside this anti-Semitic, misogynistic monster is finally showing on the outside.

Overall, I really enjoyed the show.  Love that Les Miserables won!

Simon Cowell – Using A Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber?!?

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Strange and interesting article from the National Enquirer:

In one of his latest bids to turn back time, Simon had his saggy “turkey neck” tightened in a noninvasive procedure by a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon in October, said the source.

The neck-lift was like­ly done with the new Fractora Firm device, said Michigan-based plastic sur­geon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated Cow­ell. The device uses radio frequency energy to create tissue-firming collagen under the skin.

After the treatment, “Si­mon brought a technician  with a portable hyperbaric cham­ber into his Beverly Hills home,” said the insider. “He spent about an hour a day in the chamber for a period of weeks. He usually fell asleep, and when he got out, he said he felt like a new man.

“Simon believes that being in the chamber helped suppress the swelling from his surgery as well as bloating from his drinking and years-long smoking habit.”

Since I’ve never treated Simon, I can’t say for sure what he had done.  I do commend him for being candid with his Botox use.  Overall, he looks like he’s aging very well.  But hyperbaric oxygen chamber?  There are no studies that prove that hyperbaric oxygen reverses aging.

Goldie Hawn – Beauty Secrets

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Can you believe Goldie Hawn is 67 years old?  She looks amazing.  Goldie gave an interview on this week’s Prevention magazine about some of her beauty secrets.  From the magazine:

“I do try to do some form of exercise 4 days a week. At home in California, I’ll bike up the mountain. Or I’ll do Pilates or Spin. And I do eat a lot of greens. I eat healthy, but I’m not a vegetarian.”

In addition to living a clean life and meditation, I also suspect that Goldie’s had a good amount of plastic surgery, too.  She does look really good for her age, although at times it looks like she may have gone a little Overboard.

 

Sophia Loren – Has She Had Major Plastic Surgery?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

I was recently interviewed by Radar Online about the legendary actress Sophia Loren.  Has she had plastic surgery?  Although she officially denies it, I think it’s very unlikely someone can look as good as she does at the age of 78 without the help of a plastic surgeon.  I suspect that she’s had quite a bit of work done, including at least one facelift, upper and lower eyelid surgery, fat injections to her cheeks, filler injections to her lips, and a breast augmentation.

It’s just my opinion, since I am not her doctor and am not privy to her medical history.  That being said, my grandma looked nothing like her when she was 78!

Sofia Vergara On Plastic Surgery And Her Boobs

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Sofia Vergara recently discussed her boobs and plastic surgery during an interview with Health Magazine.  From The Celebrity Cafe.com:

My publicist [at the time the star moved to America] told me, ‘I think you  should just reduce your boobs because nobody’s going to take you serious here,’” Sofia Vergara said in Health magazine.

In a land where 34 DD cups are typically silicone, those who are blessed with  the extra curves are lumped in with the rest of the plastic surgery crowd.

Sofia’s mother was not in agreement with the publicist about the reduction  surgery. In fact, she went as far as saying that “God is going to punish you!  You can’t cut your boobs!”

In the end, Vergara says she’s happy with the decision she made to not go  through with the surgery. She admitted that the large boobs have even become a  huge part of her character on Modern Family.

I LOVE Modern Family.  I think it’s the best show on TV.  Cam and Phil Dunphy are freakin’ hilarious.

One of my favorite Phil Dunphy quotes:

Phil: Luke, I am your father. That’s what I said to you when you were coming out  of your mom’s lady parts.
