Topping the list of most requested celebrity features is Kate Middleton’s nose. Plastic surgeons in the UK say that rhinoplasty patients requesting the delicate nose of the “Duchess of Cambridge” have tripled in recent years, according to the Daily Mail.

In the states, women want the nose of Scarlett Johannson, Jessica Alba and Natalie Portman, which isn’t unexpected since nose reshaping has consistently been the second most popular cosmetic procedure for the past three years.

Rhinoplasty, which is most commonly known as a nose job, allows a person to reshape an unflattering bridge, contour the nostrils and nasal tip in a way that compliments other facial features.

As for the nose most men want theirs to look like Jude Law. And finally men ask for the sculpted cheek bones of Ashton Kutcher.

Alterations to all of the major features are possible. But an experienced doctor will be frank and tell you whether modifying your face in this manner is actually appropriate. They want you to look your very best, and sometimes that means what works on another person’s face may not look right on yours.

You want to choose a surgeon who carefully evaluate your features and recommend the facial alterations that will suit your bone structure and works in harmony with all of your features.

Brow Lift Patients Delighted With Results

Dallas, TX- There are many areas on the face that can quickly give away our ages, but no area displays the signs of aging more than the forehead on many people. The forehead expresses a range of emotions so it should be no surprise that as we age we begin to develop permanent vertical lines across the forehead, making us look older on the outside than we feel on the inside.

For this reason many people seek out skilled plastic surgeons for a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift. With this procedure, a facial cosmetic surgeon typically makes tiny incisions at the hairline and repositions, alters or removes excess muscle in skin on the forehead to eliminate those vertical lines and frown lines between the eyebrows. A brow lift can also bring up a low or sagging brow line.

But before a person has any cosmetic surgery they want to know if other patients who previously had the procedure are happy with the end results year later. A team of German researchers recently conducted a survey to ask brow lift patients, whose average age was 60 at the time of the procedure, if they were happy with the end results of their surgery years later. They found that a majority of patients were pleased with the results of their brow lift, and not only would they consider having the procedure again they would even recommend it to their friends, according to Healthday.

The German researchers surveyed 93 brow lift patients who underwent the procedure between 1994 and 2007. Of those surveyed, 63 percent said they were delighted with their appearance following the procedure. Only a small percentage was unhappy with the procedure, about 18 percent. An additional 18 percent said they were unsure.

While their non-surgical alternatives to a brow lift, such as Botox injections, the results are much more dramatic and longer-lasting with the surgical procedure. So the German researchers emphasized the importance of being aware of how the amount of time a patient needs to recover from a brow lift.

 As with any surgical procedure recovery from a brow lift takes significantly longer than with an injectable, so it is something that should be taken into consideration before making a final decision. A patient should expect their recovery period to last three to four weeks.

The key to having a positive experience with a brow lift and obtaining optimal results depends on choosing the right facial plastic surgeon. When you meet with a facial aesthetic surgeon ask to for before and after photos of previous brow lift patients so you can see for yourself how dramatically this procedure will transform and improve your face.

In the Dallas area, Dr. John Freeman has helped many men and women combat the signs of aging through a variety of cosmetic enhancements. A consultation with Dr. Freeman can help you determine if this procedure is the right choice for you.

Chin Implants Popular Among Men and Women

Houston, TX- Looks are important and people place a great deal of value on having an attractive face and body. Since the face is the one of the first things people notice about each other, facial plastic surgeries repeatedly rank within the top ten most popular plastic surgeries. It’s no secret that Botox, nose jobs and eyelifts are among the most common cosmetic procedures, but you may be surprised to know that chin implants are the fastest growing surgeries among men and women.

Facial beauty and attractiveness are achieved when the eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks and chin are in proportion to each other. Lacking a strong jawline or having a disproportionately large chin can lessen the attractiveness and harmonious balance of a person’s face. Not only can a jawline affect a person’s profile, but it is also one of the facial areas that can show the signs of aging along with a double-chin. This is why so many people in the past couple of years have increasingly sought out a chin implant of lift.

According to an April study by the ASPS, chin implants among men skyrocketed 76 percent and rose overall by 71 percent in 2011. The 55 and above demographic was the biggest driver in the popularity of the chin implant with 8,459 of 20,000 chin procedures performed on this age group.

ASPS’ president Dr. Malcolm Z. Roth explained, “The chin and jawline are among the first areas to show the signs of aging. People are considering chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift or eyelid surgery.”

If you have a weak jawline, a cosmetic surgeon will make a pocket in the chin area under the muscles, leaving room to place an implant make of silicone or other material in that space. The procedure takes between two to three hours to preform and once the patient has healed the results can be dramatic.

While some people have almost no chin, others have the reverse problem; they can have a chin that protrudes from the face. This can be caused by a prominent jaw bone or too much soft tissue, and can be determined by a simple dental x-ray, and easily corrected by doctor through a chin reduction surgery.

Facial plastic surgery has a twofold benefit, the patient after a short period of recovery will see a marked improvement in their appearance, but the biggest benefit may be apparent in their self-confidence. When we feel better about how we look we can experience a significant boost in our self-esteem which is apparent in our personal and professional lives.

Once you’ve decided that facial plastic surgery is the right thing for you, the first step is finding the right plastic surgeon. If you live in the Houston-area, Dr. John P. Freeman is the right doctor for you. He has devoted his practice to enhancing and beautifying the human face.

Face Lift Patients Retain Youthful Appearance

Dallas, TX- Our face is the first thing others notice about us, it can give away our ages and if we have features that we are unhappy about it can cause deep-seated insecurities. Fortunately we don’t have to just live with these flaws and the low self-esteem; instead we can choose between a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures to correct nature’s mistakes. When a person decides they want to have plastic surgery, they want assurance that the results will not only make them more attractive but the results will be long lasting.

A recently published study appearing in the December issue of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, showed that people who have undergone a face lift retain their youthful appearance at least 5 ½ years after having the procedure.

Researchers from the study evaluated photographs of 50 patients who had a face lift. Using a strict set of criteria to evaluate the patient’s appearance five years post-surgery, the researchers found remarkable improvement in the patient’s appearance.

Signs of facial aging, lines that run from the nose to the mouth, and the mouth to the jaw, showed the most significant improvement and proved to be long-lasting.

One of the biggest challenges a plastic surgeon faces is meeting the expectations of their patients. For patients considering a face-lift, the most frequently asked question is “How long will the results last?” And this study was conducted to answer that question.

“Scoring suggested that 76 percent of patients will still look younger 5 ½ year after a facelift than they did prior to facelift,” the researchers said.  That is an excellent rate of success and should give patients the assurances they need if they are in doubt about the procedure.

Facial cosmetic procedures which include facelifts, eye lid surgeries and nose reshaping all ranked within the top five procedures in 2011. Rhinoplasty or a “nose job” was the number two most popular plastic surgery overall, with eyelid surgery at number four and the facelift in the number five position.

While some cosmetic procedures experienced a decline, facelifts were on the rise. In the U.S. surgeons preformed 119,000 facelifts, a 5 percent increase over 2010. Now that your Dallas cosmetic surgeon can assure you that facelifts can make you look younger for years afterward the popularity of facelifts are likely to increase.

Though women made up the majority of preformed facelifts, men are becoming more accepting of plastic surgery. Three percent more men had a facelift last year than in previous years as they face an increasingly competitive and younger workforce.

Regaining a youthful appearance with a facelift is possible, and now that researchers have shown the results are long-lasting there is no reason to delay.
