The most requested Cosmetic Procedure according to a UK based study is the Duchess of Cambridges nose.

Recently a group of American Plastic Surgeons disclosed all the weird and wonderful procedures that patients had requested over the years. In most cases the Surgeons declined to carry out the extreme surgeries however it is common for patients to share images of celebrities or features that they’d like their surgeon to re-create.
We often have to explain to patients that whilst the Duchess of Cambridges nose looks good on her, her nose may not necessarily look the same on someone else. The Duchess of Cambridge has whats’ often referred to as ‘a mathematically perfect nose’, it suits her bone structure and is balanced against her other facial features whereas a person with a different bone structure may suit a smaller, larger, wider or thinner nose.

The same applies with most procedures, a patient may ask for a 280cc Breast Implant at consultation because that’s what their friend has. Again their friends’ height, body shape and original breast size is likely to be different therefore in order to achieve a similar result a larger, smaller or different placement of implant maybe required.

They key to achieving a good result with Plastic Surgery or an Aesthetic Treatment such as Dermal Fillers is creating a feature or shape that enhances the individuals appearance. It is important to attend your consultation with an open mind, of course take along the photo you have in mind and discuss what you’d like to achieve but be guided by your Surgeon or Aesthetic Practitioner as to what is a realistic result. It is their responsibility to be honest, if your expectation is unrealistic he or she will usually say so and advice will be given as to what result could be achieved. It works both ways whilst you as a patient want a certain result your Surgeon or Injector wants to achieve a result to be proud of and one that he or she knows you will be happy with too.

The part that Social Media has played in the increase in the Cosmetic Surgery industry.

The part that Social Media has played in the increase in the Cosmetic Surgery industry.

The rise in Social Media over recent years has certainly played a huge factor in the rise in the cosmetic surgery industry. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram not only allow us access to celebrities, some of whom have undergone procedures themselves but non celebrities whose network like and share users images too. The ‘selfie’ unfortunately encourages people to be more critical of their own self image, a selfie taken at a certain angle or in bad lighting can make a user judge themselves inaccurately sometimes to the point where they seek further advice to change that feature. Prospective patients will often bring along an image of a nose they have seen on the internet or a breast shape that they’d like to achieve. I believe we should be thankful to the launch of the internet for that engine for finding useful information, allowing us to network and the opportunity to market our businesses, social media plays a huge part of this and like with any model comes with its own pros and cons that should be viewed in a balanced way.

Geordie Shore Beauty – Charlotte Crosby confirms she will undergoing Rhinoplasty procedure…/charlotte-crosby-definitely-havin…

Charlotte Crosby MTV celebrity from Geordie Shore has confirmed that after speaking with several surgeons she will undergo Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) surgery. Charlotte says that she has disliked the bump in her nose for a long time, although if she had not been in the public eye it may not have bothered her so much.

I am pleased to hear that Charlotte has thought long and hard and also done her research on which surgeon she feels comfortable with before making the final decision to go ahead with surgery.

What is a rhinoplasty (nose job)?

A Rhinoplasty (nose job) involves correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose by resolving nasal trauma (blunt, penetrating, blast), congenital defect, respiratory impediment, or a failed primary Rhinoplasty. In the surgeries known as Closed Rhinoplasty and Open Rhinoplasty—the surgery creates a functional, aesthetic, and facially proportionate nose by separating the nasal skin and the soft tissues from the Osseo-Cartilaginous nasal framework, correcting them as required for form and function, suturing the incisions, and applying either a package or a stent, or both, to immobilise the corrected nose to ensure the proper healing of the surgical incision.

If you have are thinking of undergoing a Rhinoplasty, like with any Cosmetic Surgery procedure you should research your surgeon, the hospital, your procedure will be carried out at and ensure you have an aftercare policy that you are comfortable with.
