EVEN SMALL AND MINOR CORRECTIONS OR “TWEAKMENTS” COULD BE LARGE
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), nearly 18 million people had surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States last year. At Celebrities Choice Cosmetic Surgery we often concentrate on major surgical procedures to improve our patients. We’ve established the fact very conclusively, and looking your best often creates a sense of confidence and well-being. Sometimes though even minimally invasive “tweakments” can boost your confidence. Although it’s generally acknowledged that the essence of our being is internal and more spiritual than physical. However, when we look our best we often feel our best and our performance is best.
SELFIES & TWEAKMENTS
The creation of a culture of human beings around the world who are now constantly in front of a camera, and with our phones having ever improved cameras we must try to look our best before the camera. This concept of constant selfies creates a population of many celebrities who understand it is best if they look their best on camera.
LOOK LIKE YOUR FILTERED BEST
It’s impossible to Photoshop completely selfies and other photos to eliminate imperfections. The biggest request I see is for a better nose. There’s nothing more annoying than appearing in photos always having to focus on your best side. A good rhinoplasty should create your best side from any side, at any angle. Also, non-surgically – if a patient has minor indentation it can be addressed with placing HA filler to temporarily smooth and fill in the area of concern.
Other requests I get are for removing hairy moles on the face for head and cheeks. Also, torn earlobes detract from facial close-ups and even informal head shots. Eyebrow scars, lip and chin scars can often be improved with scar revision or fillers. The benefit of Botox is well-established to reduce frown lines between the eyebrows the forehead and the so-called crow’s feet. Although it’s technically not a plastic surgical procedure but eyelash composition and eyebrow composition have distinct treatments that can improve the glamour look of the female face.
SPLIT EARLOBES, BIFID NIPPLES, LARGE NIPPLES
Also in this category, as mentioned split earlobes from earring trauma can detract from one’s appearance, and this can be repaired to look very normal. Also some women are born with split or bifid nipples. In some instances and in some opinions this may not be optimally attractive. This can be repaired as well by a qualified plastic surgeon. Large nipples can also be annoying to some women and there are very specific and successful ways to shorten those excessively long nipples. Usually, with nipple reduction techniques the sensation can be preserved.
Remember, persistence and common sense are more important than intelligence.
