Last week Megan Fox posted photos to her Facebook titled "Things You Can’t Do with Your Face When You Have Botox," likely to combat claims the 25-year-old is using the injectable to maintain her china-doll visage.
Now doctors are disputing the legitimacy of said photos, and say the wrinkles she has are as "natural" as her pout. To me, they look pretty realistic, but there is that weird arc shape...
UK surgeons recently noted a visible rise in corrective surgery for cankles.
Now it seems surgeon-shy folks are finding cankle-fixing success with Nip + Fab's Tummy Fix. Darn you, Cheryl Cole, for having your fellow citizens so concerned over their ankle size.

Maybe it needs to be taken with the "ONE Mushroom."
Everybody's got something they want to change about themselves -- they're probably lying if they say they don't! This RealSelf member asked our docs if the indent in his forehead could be fixed with Botox.

Can you be too fat for plastic surgery? While those extra pounds won’t generally make you ineligible for surgery, they will put you at a greater risk. According to new research, obese patients are 12 times more likely to contend with plastic surgery-related complications.
With intense workouts and a regimented lifestyle, soldiers are arguably some of the fittest people in America. As any medical professional can tell you, however, being healthy doesn’t always mean being rail thin. Unfortunately, the U.S. military doesn’t seem to agree, imposing strict size requirements on its enlistees. As a result, soldiers for whom these size expectations are unnatural are turning to plastic surgery in order to maintain their jobs.
With over 2 million procedures performed in 2010, Botox certainly seems like America's "quick fix" for wrinkles. But although it is less invasive than a surgical procedure, one of the well-noted drawbacks is that you must continue to get injections every 3-4 months to maintain results. New research shows this frequency may drop with time.
While Kim Jong-il is still the Supreme Leader of North Korea, his youngest son, Kim Jong-un, is being groomed to become his successor. And I mean “groomed” in the most extreme way: Kim Jong-un is said to have undergone plastic surgery six times in order to better resemble his father and late grandfather, Kim Il-sung.
If there were a cheap and easy way to enlarge the "male organ," wouldn't there be a stampede of eager men to get it done?
The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) recently issued an alert about a new trend where men are deciding to ignore safety, and undergo penile injections of silicone. “No reputable plastic surgeon would offer silicone injections...."
The Fourth of July is quickly approaching, which means fireworks, barbeques, and lots of celebration in the sun, but before you bust out the tanning oil to soak up those rays there are a few facts that you should know:

With an Academy Award, one of Hollywood’s largest paychecks, and a hunky husband, who wouldn’t want to be Angelina Jolie? Moreover, now that she’s topped nearly every publication’s sexiest women alive list, who wouldn’t want to look like Angelina? Therefore, it’s hardly surprising that Angelina is the #1 celebrity who people seeking cosmetic enhancement procedures want to look like according to a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon.

It's common in the RealSelf Q&A to see questions about using Botox for hyperhidrosis -- aka excess sweating. And doctors suggest that it can be a great solution for the right patient. But apparently, Botox for the hands put a wrinkle in the texting abilities of one 17-year-old girl.
What possesses people to leave their own country, visit a foreign land and go under the knife? With the economy at a turtle-paced recovery, many Americans are doing just that. But, the growth of medical tourism is not just in the US. It seems medical tourism is good for many countries' bottom line - that includes nose jobs, new breasts and the like.
If you've ever considered breast implants, or known someone who has, it's likely you've heard the discouraging "fact" that implants must be replaced every 10 years. But according to many board-certified plastic surgeons, this is not the case.
It's a rumor that's spread wider than a D-cup: recreational pot smoking may lead to enlarged male breast tissue. But is it true? Do doobies really increase men's boobies?
Poor Cheryl Cole. The UK popstar and on/off/on/off judge of the US X Factor has had a terrible month. On top off losing her dream job and being ridiculed for her unfortunate fashion choices, she now has a new title: UK Cankle Queen. Brit doctors blame her for a rise in awareness and wanting to correct it. Ouch.
According to the Huffington Post and UK's Daily Mail, surgeons there have seen a rise in inquiries for cankle corrective surgery. They blame Cheryl Cole's US X Factor stint and the abundance of pictures taken that shed her ankles in unflattering light.

But, a growing number of thin women are getting the procedure done. We're talking the size 0/2 set. Are these women out of their mind? One RealSelf doctor says "no."
Recently on the Today Show, Beverly Hills dermatologic surgeon Dr. David Amron, Matt Lauer and co. discussed the growing trend of mini liposuction.
We want to look younger. Whether it's dying your hair or even wearing a micro-mini, disguising your age is the primary goal. Yet, if you ignore your hands, all that work would be for nothing.
Andrew Petrou, a Skin Doctors skincare specialist, points out that as women approach menopause, when estrogen levels are lower, the skin loses it's shape and is not as "plump." Veins will appear more visible and skin becomes thinner. Celebs such as Madonna and Sarah Jessica Parker are clearcut victims to this condition. While both ladies have impeccable bodies in their 40's and 50's respectively, their hands scream "older woman." What's a woman to do?
In the category of "you can't make this stuff up," a recent story has hit the news regarding a mom who gifted a boob job - TO HER 7-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER!
