Amy Winehouse’s Breasts Aren’t The Only Body Parts To Get Plumped

Amy Winehouse was spotted leaving a doctor’s office, and don’t her lips look a little fuller? I’m so happy she’s taking an interest in her appearance now, but maybe she should hold off on all the cosmetic surgery before she develops another addiction. [London, 11/5/09] Keep reading »

To Bag Or Not To Bag George Clooney

I love being a woman, but there are plenty of things I envy about the opposite sex, too. The whole standing up when they pee thing is pretty convenient (as are their short lines for public bathrooms!), but what’s especially nice for guys is how well they age. Let’s face it, appearance-wise, women tend to peak pretty early in their adulthood, but a lot of men really get better with age. They look distinguished, not haggard. Take George Clooney, for example. The guy’s nearing 50 and he’s never looked better, which is why I was pretty surprised to hear he allegedly had blepharoplasty surgery to remove the bags under his eyes. I thought he looked sexy with a little puffiness — like he spent the whole night drinking Scotch on the rocks and doing it with his younger girlfriend and couldn’t be bothered to get any sleep. Take a look at the photographic evidence and tell me what you think. Better with bags or without? Personally, I’d like to spread him on my dinner roll either way. [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Tongue Patch Makes Eating So Horrific You Get Mad Skinny

Just can’t stop yourself from eating the three solid meals a day that are totally making you F-A-T? Can’t afford costly stomach stapling and/or Courtney Love‘s favorite detox spa? Have we got a solution for you! California cosmetic surgeon Dr. Nikolas Chugay (interesting name) has developed a wildly innovative weight loss tool. He’ll sew a mesh patch over your tongue, which makes eating food so excruciatingly painful that patients are forced to stick to a liquid diet. Ten whole patients have been crazy desperate brave enough to try it and some lost “as much as 20 pounds” a month after the surgery. Kinda makes exercise and salads sound appealing, no? For patients who can’t make it out to see Dr. Chugay, we’ve got another solution: Simply imagining there is a mesh patch on your tongue is a total appetite killer! [Chicago Tribune] Keep reading »

Would You Date—Or Marry—A Plastic Surgeon?

Imagine you’re getting dressed in front of your boyfriend and you ask the cliché question: “Do I look fat?” (We hope not, but just for the sake of argument here…) And his response is, “Well actually, do you want to do something about that?”

What would it be like to date a plastic surgeon—someone who spends his life producing and considering the “ideal” in female beauty? The New York Times‘s T style magazine investigates this question in its latest issue. The answers, surprisingly, are a mixed bag. There’s what you might expect—women who are cosmetic surgery fans ask their partners to help them out (and they do so willingly). One celeb surgeon, Dr. Raj Kanodia (Jen Aniston‘s nose man) has been known to dole out freebies to the ladies. “With previous girlfriends,” he says, “I’ve always done something—a little injection, a little Botox, and several of them I’ve done noses either during the relationship or after we broke up.” Keep reading »

Should Boob Jobs Help Fund Health-Care Reform?

Obviously, money is a huge hurdle when it comes to Obama’s trillion-dollar health-care plan, but here’s one revenue source government officials may consider: tax on plastic surgery. The excise “bo-tax” (no we didn’t make that term up, but wish we could take credit) allegedly being floated around by the feds would be placed on cosmetic procedures that aren’t medical necessities, like boob jobs, teeth whitening, Botox injections, and face lifts. New Jersey already imposes such taxes, the revenue of which, we’d surmise, comes largely from the cast of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Keep reading »

British Teen Gets Eyelash Transplant

You’ve heard of cosmetic surgery procedures where fat from your butt goes into your boobs, but would you take hair from your head and put it into your eyes? Louise Thomas, a 19-year-old UK resident, was the first person in the country to undergo the process in which doctors removed hairs from the back of her neck and implanted them into cuts in her eyelid. After a few months, the hair follicles will flourish and produce thick, authentic lashes.

While Thomas opted to have the $5,000-plus surgery for medical reasons—she suffers from the hair-pulling disease trichotillomania—the procedure’s quick recovery time and lack of pain could make it an appealing option for beauty addicts looking to hop on the next craze. On the other hand, if the no-eyebrow look is all the rage, maybe an eyelash-free thing could take off. Let’s hope not. [AFP, MarieClaire.co.uk] Keep reading »
