The average man or woman considering plastic surgery might want to take into consideration a recent major event – the Academy Awards! What people don’t often realize is a lot of the magic that the celebrities are presenting is what new surgical technologies can do to create a dazzling impression. Many famous individuals rush off to the doctor for a new face before they have to present themselves to the masses, so Oscar time is a good time for cosmetic surgeons. The most popular procedures among celebrities touching up for the big time include BOTOX® injections, facelifts, and everyone’s favorite – breast augmentation. Joan Rivers, a comedian and known advocate for cosmetic surgery, led the academy awards this year. When asked on her opinion on the reputation of cosmetic surgeons, Rivers declaired the incredible booking of surgeons and seamstresses months in advance of the ceremony as admirable. “Otherwise your Aunt Sadie could star in ‘Pride and Prejudice’,” says Rivers.
Many red carpet events have served as observation points on new cosmetic procedures for the public, advertising both good and bad results. While rumors of Janet Jackson and Angelina Jolie’s procedures seem to have gone beautifully, the controversial Michael Jackson facelift and Tara Reid’s exposure of a bad breast augmentation are images to fear. To avoid such complications, be sure to enlist a board certified plastic surgeon.
