Thirty-two year old realtor Krista Stryland went in for some post-baby lipo at the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic on September 20, 2007, and never got to enjoy her new waistline. She died a few hours later after being found unresponsive in the recovery room; at issue is the fact that 911 wasn’t called for 40 minutes. The coroner said that the delay in treatment likely made the difference between life and death for the young mother...
Britney Campell, now famous as the 8-year-old who gets Botox injected by her mom for "wrinkles," was removed from her home over the weekend.
Breast cancer awareness month isn’t until October, but with so much attention being paid to the lovely Pippa Middleton’s bikini top malfunction we figured there’s no time like the present to create a little mid-year awareness for a worthy cause.
Since breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in women aged 20-49, advertisers occasionally decide to lighten up in order to capture the attention of a younger audience.
Here are 5 of our favorite breast cancer awareness ads:
Oh, oh, OH! It's just a day for stuff you can't possibly make up in the world of cosmetic surgery
Move over Sheyla Hershey, move over Maxi Mounds! Exotic dancer Chelsea Charms apparently has a 164XXX size bust. She was a guest on a British daytime talk show today. Wonder when she'll be making a play for the record book...
Would you pay $22 for a nightcap that claims to rejuvenate your skin? That's what NYC nightclub Provocateur asks for one of their spa-inspired cocktails -- each crafted with special ingredients to combat common skin complaints...
Back in March the Internet went crazy with the news of 8 year-old Britney Campbell being injected with Botox by her mother. For wrinkles. Did I mention she is EIGHT?
Well now the Campbell Clan is getting their 15 minutes of fame on this Good Morning America exclusive. Be prepared to want to punch your screen...
Fey is well known for her trademark glasses, but the 30 Rock star has another distinctive facial feature: a scar on her left cheek...
For those who’ve had or even considered having an aesthetic procedure – from the seemingly innocent Botox to a full on Mommy Makeover – you probably spent some time reflecting on how you would feel afterward. Most likely you also thought about why you were doing it to begin with, and came up with “to feel better about myself” or “to be the best version of me.”
Psychologist Dr. Vivian Diller studies beauty and self-image psychology, and she suggests that those are easy answers that may be based in truth, but cover more significant motivations.
We all know childhood obesity rates are skyrocketing in the United States. Reality star/chef Jamie Oliver, Michelle Obama, Oprah and many other celebrities whose names don’t start with “O” have all raised their voices in the name of awareness. It's common knowledge that obesity can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease and of course, a low self-esteem...
The consensus last week was that Bristol Palin must have had a cosmetic procedure -- most likely chin liposuction.
But now Palin tells US Weekly that her change was medically necessary. Apparently she had corrective jaw surgery to properly align her jaw and teeth. She says her dentist warned she may eventually need this from a young age.
Dallas Wiens made headlines in March for receiving the first full facial transplant in America. Yesterday, ABC News showed an exclusive first look at the results:
When you hear the name Kim Cattral you likely think of Samantha Jones and a banana, or something equally over-the-top from the Sex and The City franchise. Thanks to syndication, Samantha Jones will always be boastful of her lust for Botox, hormones or anything that will keep a woman feeling young and beautiful.
These days, 54 year-old Cattrall is promoting Meet Monica Velour, her newest film in which she plays a wrinkled, aging porn star. Let’s just say that it’s not all smoke and mirrors; it’s Kim -- warts and all (figuratively speaking).
We can't say this is the "latest" or even the "greatest" non-surgical facelift. We can't even say it will work. But it is outrageously funny!
Imagine going to the dentist to improve your smile with Invisalign or teeth whitening and coming home with a tad more than you bargained for – a foreign accent. That’s exactly what has happened as many as 60 times since the first case came to the surface in 1941.
How long do you have to wait to have sex after surgery?
It’s a taboo topic. There’s lots of anxiety about the surgery, especially the procedure and healing…but what about after the stitches, tucks and pulls? When can you jump back on the sex saddle? Since it may be uncomfortable to ask your doctor in person, this is a popular question on RealSelf.
May is Older Americans Month, as President John F. Kennedy proclaimed in 1963 (then Senior Citizens Month).
So let's recognize some celebrities whose stars continue to shine well past their natural hair color:
Happy 50th Birthday, ______ _______!
Believe me; if I could celebrate with you in person I’d certainly do so. Alas, I shall sing your praises through the Web.
Why we love your cosmetically unenhanced face:
What do Kenny Rogers, Sylvester Stallone and Moammar Gaddafi have in common? Well, unless Gaddafi took the stage with Dolly Parton that I’ve not heard about, it’s the fact that they’ve all said yes to getting some work done in the name of job security.
All right, so I don’t actually know what cup size Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela, is most attracted to, but one thing is for sure: Chavez is waging a war against breast implants...
Thought breast implants were only for 18+? Well, that's what the FDA recommends. It's not uncommon for high schoolers with severely asymetrical or underdeveloped breasts to opt for the procedure with parental consent. But according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 47.4% of last year's implants for girls 18 and under were "Purely cosmetic bilateral breast augmentation."
With summer fast approaching, millions of hyperhidrosis sufferers aren't thinking barbecues and beaches, they are thinking extra shirts and air conditioning. For these individuals, the hot summer months are their ultimate nemesis. Recently, ABC's Good Morning America showcased a procedure using lasers to stop excessive sweating.
In the on-going saga of which celebs have had plastic surgery, today's speculation turns to former VP candidate's daughter/Dancing with the Stars contestant/Levi Johnston's baby mama, Bristol Palin...
New research out of the University of Colorado finds that fat reappearance is a common side effect in liposuction patients. Within a year of undergoing liposuction, study participants were discovered to gain the weight back in different regions of their bodies.
This study’s news probably doesn’t surprise RealSelf forum poster cavablanco who complains that after having liposuction on her butt and thighs, she gained the weight back in her waist and belly and is having trouble getting rid of it. Tinatwo finds herself in a similar situation, saying, “Now I feel as if I need lipo on the top of my body.”
The over-hyped, overcrowded skincare market in the U.S. claims everything from erasing spots to turning back time. What makes having another store any different? Giovanni Lepori, President of the Americas for Aesop skincare, tells us why his line is different. Millions of loyal customers already know.
Jennifer Lopez is clearly gorgeous, and from what I’ve seen of her personality while sitting at the judge’s desk of American Idol, she seems to have a genuinely beautiful heart as well. But is she the most beautiful woman in the world (as according to People magazine)? I’d gladly give her the title with regards to the good old US of A, but what about the aesthetic preferences of other cultures? Certainly there’s someone equally lovely elsewhere on the planet that has somehow flown under the radar of a gargantuanly successful American magazine.
It was hard to miss the Lady in Bright Blue, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last week. While she did look absolutely stunning, she got a lot of attention for--well--drawing attention away from the bride. But the socialite and former baby-sitter of Princes William and Henry was probably trying to draw the attention to her new nose...
Kim Kardashian, Meg Ryan...did she or didn't she get work done? That is the million dollar question regarding many of the celebs out there. For one RealSelf doctor, the answer is YES, and terribly, at that...
Can you tell where Miley Cyrus’ legs end and her feet begin? In her memoir Miles to Go Miley’s ghostwriter Miley writes, “When I read online that people think I have cankles, I kind of had a fit.” Apparently, Billy Ray Cyrus tried to comfort her by saying that all of the women in their family have cankles. Good job,
dad, I bet that made her feel a lot better.
The Cyrus family isn’t the only one with cankles. In fact, plenty of women of all shapes and sizes have legs where the calf and ankle blend together into one bulky body part. Many of them wish they could add more shape to this area, including one RealSelf user who wonders whether liposuction could fix her self-described “chubby ankles”...
Matthew McConaughey and Brendan Fraser have reclaimed their film careers by boosting the fullness of their thinning tresses. Longing for luscious locks on a balding crown is not new to men or women, but disappointing, over-hyped solutions come and go all the time.
NeoGraft hair transplant is no flash in the pan. Over the last three years, it has become what Botox is to surgical facelifts. A less invasive procedure than the strip hair transplants before it, NeoGraft offers more versatility, faster healing and less risk of complications, giving the millions of Americans struggling with premature baldness alternatives in hair restoration.
Pursuing personal perfection often leads people to the office of a plastic surgeon, but now people are visiting the doctor with leashes and cages in tow. The reason? They want to give their pets a more natural and comely appearance. Pets are considered part of the family, as important as children, and pet parents want their kiddos to look good.
