Cate Blanchett and Mila Kunis Chat Injectables; Dog Gets a Tummy Tuck [Weekly Round-Up]

Celebs were quite chatty about their opinions regarding anti-aging injectables this week. 

First, Cate Blanchett gave her opinion on why younger women should stop:  “I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do. I just know what works for me. I’d just be too frightened about what it means long-term.  Looking at women in their 20s doing this stuff [injectable fillers], in the end all you see is the work." 

Next, Mila Kunis chatted about whether she would try it.  "I will not put a needle in my body unless I have a medical reason," she says, "but ask me in 10 years. Right now, I'm like, 'I'm going to embrace it,' but ... I'm probably going to want to have something done. I have no doubt." 

In other news...

  • A Huffington Post writer seemed to agree with Cate and Mila about the age thing: "I can’t even stand it that girls/women in their 20′s, 30′s and 40′s are getting cosmetic plastic surgery and Botox injections these days. There’s no reasonable explanation." She went on to poo-poo cosmetic surgery at any age, spurring a passionate retort from plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia who said "The only thing that you write that rings true to me is that you shouldn’t have plastic surgery. That’s because you don’t want it. And that is fine.” [In Your Face

  • A recent study led by doctors from the University of Toronto showed that patients that receive some form of plastic surgery can appear up to 10 years younger when compared to previous photo shots of their appearance before procedure. [Daily Mail]
  • Because of the recent PIP implant scare in Europe, manufacturers are attempting to make medical devices more trackable.  One way is by using microchips to trace devices - the same kind used to track lost pets.  They are already using the technology for vascular catheters. [Fox News]

Would you feel safer knowing your implants or the like could be scanned?
