Among the newer, popular cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures, ear pinning and augmentation, otherwise known as otoplasty, is gaining media attention. More people, including teens, are having ear surgery to avoid bullying and to change the appearance of ear abnormalities. In many cases surgeons alter the ear cartilage or inject dermal fillers to tighten and re-shape the tissue. This can also be a successful method to restore stretched tissue from ear gauging.
Maybe it was just a few of us who have grown up watching sports newscaster icon Bob Costas who noticed, while watching the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, how good he looks for 60. It would be hard not to acknowledge how he withstands time, or is he getting help from a cosmetic or plastic surgeon. The TV news, network industry is hard on its hosts. It can be competitive and catty for men and women, so maybe he did get some work done, like a facelift or eye lift. Regardless, he looked fantastic and his plastic surgeon should be commended for producing natural results. Thanks to the skilled hands (if in fact Costas did have surgery) Bob still looks like Bob.
It is hard to say whether Heidi Montag became more famous for her role on “The Hills” or for her plastic surgery marathon, where she went the distance and had more than 10 procedures performed in the same day in 2010. Montag had breast surgery, rhinoplasty, chin surgery, a brow lift and other procedures to change her image, but it became a life-long sentence for her. Now, she is embracing her feelings about self-image as she looks back in retrospect with some regret, and looks forward to new projects, and a life without plastic surgery in the future.
For many couples who meet in their prime, get married, have children and raise a family together, time and age can take a toll on their bodies. Heather and David Robertson recognized how life and time had changed their physical appearances, and they wanted to do something to change their images, so they decided to have cosmetic surgery procedures, together. For both, this decision made sense. They had done most everything else together for the last 18 years, like: marriage, four children, raising a family, taking vacations, and this was just a new mutual venture, to cosmetically restore features that changed shape, over time. After having four children, Heather elected to have a tummy tuck, while her husband, David, decided on chin lift surgery. Couples seeking to have cosmetic surgery together is becoming more common, according to Dr. Anthony Youn, a board certified plastic surgeon located in Michigan.
Dr. McNemar, a Board Certified, California plastic surgeon who is a co-author “Your Complete Guide to Breast Augmentation & Body Contouring” shares his concerns for women considering “lunchtime boob job: procedures. There are risks associated with the filler substance Macrolane, used in this non-surgical procedure, and he suggests that FDA approved implants offer more flexibility than other options for adding volume to the breasts. “With the wide variety of implant sizes and shapes available, we can achieve beautiful, proportional augmentation that complements a woman’s figure, no matter what her body type.”

Rhinoplasty is one of the more common facial plastic surgery procedures chosen my men, women and teens. Typically, nose surgery requires the open or closed technique to change the shape and modify the nose. However, in more recent years, many patients can opt for non-surgical rhinoplasty, which uses dermal fillers to change the shape and size of the nose by injecting the fillers into areas to enhance its appearance.
Brazilian Butt Lifts are one of the more popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed in recent years. It is interesting how women now want larger back-ends like JLO and Beyonce to gain a more curvy figure. Brazilian Butt Lifts can transfer weight from a less desirable area to a more desirable one, using liposuction and injections to remove and transfer the fat, so the procedure uses the patients own tissue from the donor area to the recipient area. When the necessary liposuction is performed around the waist or on the thighs, the effect can be even more dramatic, and really create an hourglass figure. This procedure is not for skinny gals, because it requires the patient to have excess fat to take from one area and trafer to another to get the full new rear-view.
