Angelina Jolie Voices Interest in Plastic Surgery

Everyone ages, and no one really loves what it does to the surface of their skin. Celebrities experience this as well.   Angelina Jolie may still be just as beautiful as she was ten years ago, but her skin does not look as taught and fresh-faced as it once did. As a result, Angelina is thinking of having many procedures done in the future to uphold her signature Hollywood beauty, according to reports.

Apparently the 36 year old movie star wants a full face and neck lift sometime in the near future.  Movie stars that are younger tend to get the bigger roles, and sometimes aging actresses get left behind.  Angelina is determined to keep her reigning title of Hollywood Beauty and enhance her natural beauty with plastic surgery.

As Jolie raises her large brood and has a job as a  full-time actress, she wants to do something to feel better about her looks and self esteem.  Cosmetic alterations have the power to transform lines and wrinkles into smooth and ageless skin.  Corrections can be made, including smoothing out wrinkles and laugh lines that make women look older.

Acne scars or dark circles can also be corrected using plastic surgery and injectable fillers. Angelina Jolie is beginning to embrace the benefits of such treatments and procedures. She was  once quoted saying that she did not want to indulge in plastic surgery. However,  as she ages, her mind seems to have changed.

It doesn’t matter what field you work in – if maintaining a youthful look is important to you, we can help you determine which procedures that will accomplish this if you book a consultation.

Executives and Plastic Surgery

Business thrives on competition.  In order to succeed, many executives are now focusing more on their outward appearance in addition to their inner knowledge.  Young and fresh faces can sometimes become a threat to those who have been working hard for many years in their particular industry.  A new trend is on the rise for executives and highly paid professionals to receive cosmetic surgery.

Most people want to look as good as they feel; so many high paid executives are now flocking towards cosmetic procedures to give them an extra boost in competitive fields.  A fresh outlook physically gives men and women a boost in confidence, as they feel like they can look as good as their younger rivals.

Some cosmetic surgeons are surprised at the number of executives who are receiving outpatient procedures on their lunch hours! A few years back, many people would opt for plastic surgery and the recovery time would be lengthy. As procedures are becoming more and more advanced, plastic surgery outpatient recovery is conveniently speedy.

Even though there is still a recession in the United States, there has not been a real decline in plastic surgery use.  Most likely, this is due to the fact that it is now more critical than ever for executives to compete against their younger competitors and thrive in an economic downturn.  Quick outpatient procedures such as Botox and microdermabrasion are now readily available, and require little to no pain and recovery on the patient’s behalf.  People are finding the benefits to looking their best through cosmetic surgery is both painless and worth the extra money to look better.

The most commonly requested procedures from men are rhinoplasty and liposuction.

New developments in the industry may also increase the types of procedures that men are opting for. As research and technology continues to develop, plastic surgery is becoming more and more advanced.  Stem cell research has even made a breakthrough in cosmetic procedures, and may soon be able to replace Botox and fillers. Using one’s own stem cells as opposed to synthetic materials being injected into the body will become a preferred naturalistic approach to millions.  New fat burning and freezing procedures that are non surgical are also being researched, eliminating surgery altogether. As the industry continues to blossom, so do the advantages of cosmetic applications and procedures. All of these mentioned procedures can be performed by Dr. Fiorillo.
