Hollywood’s Pillow Face is a Problem

Published on August 27, 2012 by

Hollywood’s Pillow Face is a Problem As many of you know, I love facial volumization in which lost soft tissue of the face from aging is restored using fat grafting and/or injectable fillers.  The word that has dominated the media is a “pillow face” to describe this facial fullness.  I am very adverse to this […]

Heidi Montag Plastic Surgery: What Are My Thoughts

Published on April 21, 2012 by

Heidi Montag Plastic Surgery:  What Are My Thoughts Obviously, when a famous celebrity gets plastic surgery, there is a thunderstorm of opinions that surround that event.  Mostly these opinions originate from the lay press, and at other times these opinions appear as sound bites from a media-hungry or media-savvy plastic surgeon.  My goal in this […]

Joan Rivers Plastic Surgery: From Overlifted to Overfilled

Published on January 28, 2012 by

Joan Rivers Plastic Surgery: From Overlifted to Overfilled Joan Rivers has been the poster child of bad plastic surgery for quite some time now.  She was one of the most overlifted individuals that anyone has ever witnessed, but I believe that she may have gone overboard in the other direction, which is overfilling. The LA […]

Kenny Rogers and Bad Blepharoplasty and Browlift Surgery

Published on January 8, 2012 by

Kenny Rogers and Bad Blepharoplasty and Browlift Surgery Obviously, there is quite a bit of brouhaha about Kenny Rogers’ facial work. His alien appearance has clearly become the poster child for bad facial plastic surgery. If you are wondering what I see as far as his bad work is concerned, I can break it down […]

Priscilla Presley and Bad Silicone

Published on December 5, 2011 by

Unfortunately, celebrities seem to be victims of shysters and crooks.  As far as what I have heard, Priscilla Presley had silicone injected into her face by an unlicensed individual leaving her permanently scarred.  As you can see in this photo, her cheeks were made way too large, whereas her upper and lower face was left […]

Wayne Newton’s Browlift

Published on November 19, 2011 by

Wayne Newton’s Browlift Wayne Newton has obviously had quite a bit of face work that has left him looking plastic, which is not the intended outcome of plastic surgery.   Most of you know that the plastic in plastic surgery comes from the Greek word, plastikos, meaning to change the shape.  In this case, the shape […]

Nicole Kidman’s Lips: The Non-Disappearing Lip

Published on October 30, 2011 by

Nicole Kidman’s Lips: The Non-Disappearing Lip Celebrities all are subject to bad plastic surgery like the rest of us. They just so happen to have their mugs plastered across magazines and television appearances, making their mistakes ever so more glaring. Nicole Kidman’s lips are no exception to this problem. The overly enlarged upper lip and […]

Robert Downey, Jr.: A Double Standard for Attractiveness

Published on August 28, 2011 by

Robert Downey, Jr.:  A Double Standard for Attractiveness I am always looking to understand what makes someone attractive.  I find Robert Downey Jr. better looking now in his 40s than when he was in his twenties. Same thing goes for George Clooney.  The gray hair and some wrinkles are not necessarily a bad thing in […]

Adrian Brody versus Tom Cruise’s Nose: Should They Have Rhinoplasty?

Published on July 29, 2011 by

Adrian Brody versus Tom Cruise’s Nose:  Should They Have Rhinoplasty? Adrian Brody and Tom Cruise both have pretty big noses, the former winning by a stadium length.  Would you perform rhinoplasty on either one of their noses to make them less big?  That is a matter of artistic understanding.  Some would argue that very large […]

Suzanne Somer’s Facial Injections: Oh My God!

Published on July 11, 2011 by

Suzanne Somer’s Facial Injections:  Oh My God! Recently, I performed a fat transfer on a lady from Houston who showed me a photograph of Suzanne Somer’s during our preoperative visit the day before the procedure.  She had already sent me an email terribly worried about the procedure, asking whether I would make her look like […]

Madonna’s Cheek Implants

Published on July 1, 2011 by

Madonna’s Cheek Implants Madonna has had some amazing work done and also some very bad work done as well.  The one thing that gained my attention was her cheek augmentation she had a couple of years ago. I believe she underwent cheek implants to make her look younger but the opposite effect occurred, she looked […]

Megan Fox Lip Surgery

Published on June 2, 2011 by

Megan Fox’s Lips In general, I am not opposed to a more aggressive policy with lip augmentation for women in their late teenage to early twenties.  A full set of lips can actually look natural in this narrow window of time.  However, even by the late twenties when the face is slimmer, very full lips […]

Bruce Jenner and Thoughts About Bad Facelifts

Published on May 20, 2011 by

Bruce Jenner and Thoughts About Bad Facelifts Unfortunately, the time that plastic surgery gets publicized is when it looks bad.  I too often hear, “Well, I can always spot out plastic surgery.”  Two things.  First, if facial plastic surgery is done well you should not be able to tell.  Second, even if you cannot tell, […]
