For decades, there are some people that have held the perception that plastic surgery is for individuals that just don’t want to make an effort to “fix” their perceived problems. This stereotype is attached to a negative connotation about plastic surgery.
In the context of the stereotype that plastic surgery is an alternative for the lazy, the following should be considered:
The above should teach you that plastic surgery is not an “easy way out”. Plastic surgery is a big, life-changing decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Contact us if you are thinking about plastic surgery.

Hollywood is a town that’s focused on appearances, and many celebrities choose plastic surgery to ensure that they always appear young and attractive. There are some celebrities that claim that plastic surgery may not be right for them. Katie Holmes, for example, admits that her body is already changing (although she is only 32) and although plastic surgery is not right for her today, it is clear that her thoughts may change in the future. However, the starlet does mention that she won’t ever choose to have her lips done as her “sisters would kill her”.
Other celebrities like Julianne Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker claim that they will not be having plastic surgery – ever. Their reasons for this are interesting. They both claim that most people that have plastic surgery do not attain their goal of looking younger. They claim many look older after they have gone under the knife.
That can be true of those that do not choose a quality, reputable plastic surgeon. It is possible that as these women age in ways they don’t like, they will be influenced by positive examples of plastic surgery around them. It could lead to a change of heart about plastic surgery.

The Kardashian sisters are regularly making headlines – sometimes as a result of their personal lives, other times due to speculation that they have had plastic surgery. Kris Jenner, mom and manager to the Kardashian sisters makes fewer headlines, but recently, she has become a focus of major media attention. This is because Kris Jenner appears to have had plastic surgery.
It is no secret that her husband, and former Olympian, Bruce Jenner has had a facelift, and it appears as though she has followed in his footsteps. With daughter Kim’s wedding coming up this summer, Kris has allegedly had a facelift and recent photos of her seem to support that theory. The results of her surgery are very positive, as the look is subtle – Kris simply looks as though she’s a more refreshed version of herself. Undoubtedly, this is the look that Kris was hoping for as she will be extensively photographed during Kim’s wedding.
As most of the family’s life is photographed for E!, it is likely that Kris’ surgery will appear on an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Celebrity Megan Fox is not new to the plastic surgery rumor mill. Her facial appearance has changed in recent years, which has lead to extensive speculation about what she has had done. The most recent rumors about this young starlet have been questioning whether or not she has been having Botox despite her young age. Typically celebrities take to the media to deny any speculation, but Megan Fox has chosen to use social media instead.
Megan Fox took to her Facebook page and posted a series of photos showing that her face does all the things you typically can’t with Botox. Within about 24 hours, more than 65,000 people liked the album, which definitely got the point out there quickly!
Megan Fox has said in the past that she is not opposed to plastic surgery, but that she has not yet decided to alter her appearance, and she is still young.

There are many plastic surgeons across the country that have reported seeing a greater number of couples coming in together for procedures than ever before. While the upturn in the economy may be partly responsible for this trend, it may also be a testament to the modern marriage.
It used to be that women were the only ones focused on looking good for their men. Today, both partners are focused on looking attractive to each other. With this shift, those looking to keep the spark in their relationship may choose to go under the knife together. Spouses may be unable to help each other recover, but they can ask for help from friends or family and do so together!
If you are considering having plastic surgery as a couple, contact us to discuss your options.

If you have spoken to a doctor about whether or not you are a candidate for an elective plastic surgery procedure and have been told that you are not due to your weight, you may have felt discriminated against. This is not the reality. Doctors do not choose to operate on you based on appearance – any decision about candidacy is based on your overall health.
The medical profession has been careful about operating on obese individuals for years. More recently, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has provided more research that proves there is risk involved with operating on the obese.
According to the report, individuals who are obese face a risk of complications that are 12 times greater than the average plastic surgery patient. The reasons for this include:
It is important that all individuals familiarize themselves with the risks of any procedure before moving forward. If you would like to learn more about your candidacy for a plastic surgery procedure, contact us.

There has been speculation that there will not be sufficient evidence to convict Casey Anthony to serve a life-long prison sentence. This means, at some stage, the alleged murderer will be reintegrating herself into society. There are trial watchers that have been speculating that she may choose plastic surgery so that she won’t be recognized as she returns to her life, whenever that may be.
Most plastic surgeons are careful about assessing the motivations of their patients before allowing them to go under the knife. The goal is to ensure that it is being done for the right reasons, and that the patients will not have any future regrets about their decision. As a result, a plastic surgeon may unveil the true motivations of an individual like Anthony – especially if she is visually recognized by the doctor first. As a result, people should have less concern that such drastic facial surgery will take place, so Casey Anthony should not be able to just disappear.
