Face Of American Beauty
Many people view cosmetic surgery as a new fad that only is sought by pseudo celebrities. However, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Last year, more than 14.6 million cosmetic procedures were performed, and that number is expected to increase in the coming years. According to a Parade article, the appeal of these treatments is nothing new.
The article reveals that Marilyn Monroe, an icon of American beauty, had cosmetic surgery. The news comes from an anonymous collector who is auctioning off Monroe’s medical records and x-rays. The source hid the memorabilia for more than six decades.
The medical records were written by a popular, Hollywood plastic-surgeon, named Michael Gurdin. The notes indicate that Monroe underwent a chin-implant procedure in 1950. There always has been speculation that Monroe had cosmetic surgery, but many thought that she had a rhinoplasty.
Choose An Experienced Cosmetic Surgeon For Your Chin Implant Or Facelift
As you might imagine, with 14.6 million procedures performed every year, there are quite a few cosmetic surgeons. Because cosmetic procedures are becoming more and more popular, the field likely will become more appealing to medical students. It’s important to note, however, that not all cosmetic surgeons are created equal, and you should try to find one that has extensive training.

Monroe’s X-Rays Also Show Evidence Of A Rhinoplasty
The doctor’s notes that are up for auction state that Monroe’s chin implants slowly were absorbing into her skin. That’s because in the 1950s, surgeons used carved bovine-cartilage instead of the silicone implants used today. The notes are accompanied by x-rays that were taken after she died.
Many claim that Monroe’s x-rays also show evidence of a small rhinoplasty operation. The doctor’s notes and x-rays will be auctioned together and are expected to be sold for as much as $30,000.
