Post-baby boob job surgery – would you go under the knife?

Kate Middleton mums tumThe UK is buzzing with the news that the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, the as-yet-unnamed future king, on Monday this week.

Kate was praised by mums everywhere for stepping out of hospital to the waiting press with her “mum tum” proudly on show in a beautiful polka dot Jenny Packham dress that gave a subtle nod to Diana, who wore a similar dress after giving birth to Wills.

First-time mum Kate now faces the decision whether or not to breastfeed her baby son, like women all over the world.

Lots of women who do choose to breastfeed their babies turn to cosmetic surgery later to give their confidence a boost as their body changes and adapts to motherhood.

She said: “I think that having cosmetic surgery is a very personal thing. Some people have it because they have huge insecurities about their looks and they want to feel better. Personally, I had a boob job surgery because I had a baby and they went down and I wanted to put them back.

And she’s not alone – Melanie Griffith has talked about having a breast augmentation procedure after her second child in 1991, while Everybody Loves Raymond star and mother-of-four Patricia Heaton has been open about having a tummy tuck and breast lift.

She said: “I had four C-sections and my stomach looked like a map of the world. My breasts were hanging down to here from breastfeeding those babies. I wanted to fit into the gowns that I finally got to wear.”

And Hollywood actress Denise Richards certainly agrees – she said: “When I was 19, a doctor put in bigger implants than what I asked for. I was in such a hurry to get them I didn’t research my doctor. You have to be your advocate for your own body and ask 100 questions.”

Has Lady Gaga had a nose job?

Lady Gaga has been rumoured to have undergone rhinoplasty/nose reshaping

Rumours that Lady Gaga has had a nose job are spreading like wildfire thanks to The Sun newspaper and the celebrity blogosphere.

The New York-born singer had surgery in February this year for severe joint inflammation and was spotted using a wheelchair for weeks after her operation.

According to The Sun, Gaga has denied having cosmetic surgery, but gossips are suggesting her joint op wasn’t the only procedure the 27-year-old star underwent.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed across the world as millions of people are unhappy with the size, shape or position of their nose.

And if Lady Gaga has made the decision to go through with the procedure she’s not alone –celebrities who have admitted to having had their noses re-shaped include singer Ashlee Simpson, Glee actress Dianna Agron and High School Musical Star Ashley Tisdale.

Just this week, in fact, actress Helen Flanagan and Saturdays’ singer Rochelle Humes were rumoured to have gone under the knife too.

Feeling self-conscious about such a central feature can cripple your confidence – and that’s not to mention the burden of associated health problems like sleep apnoea and breathing issues.

Desire Cosmetic Surgery will sit down with you and talk you through all of your options to make sure you’re totally comfortable with the decision you come to, ensuring it’s 100% the right one for you.

Our friendly and reassuring surgeons are highly skilled and experienced in rhinoplasty so you’ll be completely safe in their hands if you do decide to go through with the procedure.

How will Alan Sugar’s Apprentice impact the cosmetic surgery industry?

This week saw 24-year-old Leah Totton scoop the top spot in The Apprentice.

Alan Sugar chose the Derry doctor after she fought off competition from budding businessmen and women from across the UK and impressed him with her business plan – to open a chain of high street Botox clinics.

Botox has become fairly commonplace these days so Leah’s idea is a natural way for the industry to progress – but it has caused controversy in the industry as many surgeons believe her plans “trivialise” cosmetic surgery.

The BBC has been criticised by surgeons for backing A&E doctor Leah’s business plan – which is set to be funded by an investment of £250,000 from Alan Sugar – as she has had no specialist training.

James McDiarmid, a consultant plastic surgeon and spokesman for the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) told the Independent newspaper:

“Having Leah Totton running Botox clinics is like saying that someone, aged 17, who has just passed their driving test can be a Formula One driver”.

The £750m industry already suffers from a lack of regulation – but Leah has announced plans to use her experience in the medical world to help raise standards and campaign for proper regulations.

Leah’s clinics will offer facial fillings, anti-wrinkle injections and skin peels. But if BAAPS and the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) have their way, procedures like Botox will only be available on prescription.

Mark Henley, Bapras chair of independent practice and a consultant plastic surgeon, told the Independent newspaper: “It is a concern that a very junior doctor can make claims to be an authority in this field and provide the direction and clinical judgment that only comes with experience.”
