Josie Gibson flaunts the results of her tummy tuck

Josie_Gibson_2015 Tummy tuckBig Brother winner Josie Gibson has been flaunting the results of her tummy tuck.

The starlet – famed for winning the reality show in 2010 – is a notorious yo-yo dieter who has battled the bulge for many years. Now in the best shape of her life, the 32-year-old underwent the surgical procedure back in November to remove the excess skin from her body. This week she’s let the world see a glimpse of her transformation by sharing a revealing picture on social media. Along with the image, she wrote: “So happy with the results of my abdominoplasty in September. Scar is amazing and healing nicely.”

Last year, Josie freely spoke about her decision to go under the knife, revealing that she had actually been considering the procedure for three years. The reality star told New magazine: “I lost a lot of weight and had all this loose skin. I’ve been debating a tummy tuck since 2013, but I’ve always been too scared. Then there was a big debate about me having children.”

The tummy tuck isn’t the first cosmetic surgery that Josie has undergone since she shot to stardom seven years ago. Just a few years after being named the winner of Big Brother, she had a boob job to go from a size B to a DD. Discussing the breast enlargement, Josie gushed: “I feel so sexy. They just make me look a bit more like a woman instead of a Neanderthal. I was umming and ahhing about the size of them. I was going to go to a C, then a D, then a DD, but I think for my height and my frame, a C wouldn’t have made a difference. I didn’t want them too big because I still want to train hard. Now they’re not too big and they’re not too little – they’re perfect.”

Do you want to look amazing?

Josie isn’t the only one who has the ability to transform their body. Instead, anyone can alter their appearance with the help of the Belvedere Clinic. For more information on choosing a procedure that’s right for you, get in touch today.

Want bigger boobs – what are your options?

If you’ve always longed for bigger boobs, you might be considering undergoing a breast augmentation procedure. So, what are your options?

Want bigger boobs - what are your options?

Breast augmentation surgery

The traditional surgical enhancement of your breasts involves having a saline or silicone implant inserted beneath your existing breast tissue. The results are immediate and you can choose the size and shape of the end result.

The procedure will be carried out under a general anaesthetic in hospital or in a properly equipped cosmetic surgery clinic. You’ll need a few weeks to recover from the surgery and there will be some discomfort, swelling and bruising that will vanish quickly to leave you with beautiful new boobs.

Fat grafting

An alternative to implants is fat grafting. Fat is removed from areas of your body where it is plentiful and it’s then implanted into your breasts. This procedure is generally used to improve the appearance of the breasts, rather than just to make them bigger.

Stem cell implants

Stem cell implantation is a relatively new procedure and was originally used for reconstructive surgery in women who had undergone mastectomy following cancer treatment. The procedure is now widely used as an alternative to traditional implants.

The stem cells are taken from the fat of the thighs or stomach. The stem cells are then grown in a lab and injected into the breast tissue where they rapidly multiply and eventually grow to form new breast tissue. The result is a natural-looking and feeling breast.

Recovery is pretty much instantaneous as the procedure is only minimally invasive. However, it’s only possible to increase breast size by one cup size and no uplift or firming effect can be achieved. In addition, it can take a few months before any results are seen and the procedure itself is usually around twice as expensive as a traditional boob job.

Get the look you’ve always wanted

If you’ve always longed for bigger breasts, there are a few alternatives available to the traditional boob job. For more information on how you could achieve the celebrity figure you’ve always dreamed of, why not have a chat with the cosmetic surgery experts at Belvedere Clinic today.

Baywatch and Plastic Surgery

Baywatch is set to be the hottest film of the summer.

Baywatch-and-Plastic-Surgery

The upcoming movie – based on the hit television show that ran from 1989 to 1999 – will hit cinemas later this month with the lead roles taken up by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron.

The film has many fans of the franchise wondering what happened to the original cast – and whether they have managed to maintain those drop dead gorgeous bodies that made them famous in the first place.

Well, it turns out that Donna D’Errico – famed for playing Donna Marcoon on the show – has undergone quite a transformation over the past few months. Once again under the gaze of the public, the 49-year-old has improved her body with a number of cosmetic procedures. Among the treatments that she underwent include an arm lift, liposuction to her stomach, back and arms, a bum enhancement and a tummy tuck.

Donna’s been happy to document the results – even going as far as to go under the knife in front of the cameras. Speaking of the intimate pictures that have been released online, Donna explained: “I went to see Dr. Obeng because I had excess skin on my upper arms from having gained and lost weight. ‘I also had quite a bit of excess skin on my stomach from having had two children.”

Of course, Donna isn’t the only former cast member from the original series to have gone under the knife. The long list of stars includes the likes of Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra, both of whom had a boob job to enhance the size of their chests. Somewhat ironically, actress Charlotte McKinney – who stars as a lifeguard in the upcoming movie – is actually considering having a breast reduction because she believes her boobs are naturally too big. The 23-year-old recently revealed: “If that’s what makes you feel better, then got for it.”

Fancy becoming a beach babe?

The world of cosmetic surgery extends well beyond the cast of Baywatch. In fact, you could find a procedure that’s perfect for you. For more information, get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic today.

Ex on the Beach stars lead the way with cosmetic surgery

The cast of Ex on the Beach have many doors opened for them – including the opportunity for cosmetic surgery to perfect their appearance.

ex-on-the-beach-cosmetic-surgery

Ex on the Beach is currently one of the biggest reality shows on television. In fact, it’s so popular that anyone who takes part is quickly destined for a career in front of the cameras and on the red carpet.

Jemma Lucy is the latest star to have turned to cosmetic surgery after her stint in front of the cameras on MTV. The brunette beauty has treated herself to a Brazilian bum lift, the same procedure that Kim Kardashian is rumoured to have undergone. Jemma officially revealed the news with a video to her followers on Snapchat. She joyously announced: “I’m excited because I’m going to have a big bum and I’m going to shake it all the time, and it’s going to be a bubble butt.”

Meanwhile, Chanelle McCleary has overhauled her image after appearing on the reality series earlier this year. The starlet is reported to have signed up for the upcoming season of Celebrity Big Brother and is taking no chances when it comes to her looks. A friend told The Sun: “Chanelle has gone all out and had liposuction on her chin, stomach, waist, thighs and back. She loves the idea of having a peachy bum bottom so she also had a Brazilian bum lift while she was there. Chanelle’s also had fillers and Botox to help define her cheekbones and smooth out any lines.”

Of course, Jemma and Chanelle aren’t the first Ex on the Beach stars to undergo cosmetic surgery – and they probably won’t be the last. In 2015, Laura Alicia Summers started the trend by treating herself to a number of treatments. She later defended her decision, writing: “I love the way I look and I love the way my life is, it’s made me a stronger person and I have no regrets.”

It’s easy to follow their lead

Ex on the Beach stars aren’t the only ones worthy of cosmetic surgery. In fact, you can get in on the action just as easily if you’re not 100 per cent happy with your appearance. For more information on the options available to you, contact The Belvedere today.

Chrissy Teigen admits ‘everything is fake’

Hollywood hottie Chrissy Teigen has come clean about undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Chrissy Teigen admits ‘everything is fake’

The presenter – who is married to singer John Legend – has been rumoured to have had cheek implants for several years. But now she’s insisted that she hasn’t had that work done – but has instead gone under the knife for pretty much everything else. The mum-of-one told Byrdie: “Everything about me is fake except my cheeks.”

It’s currently unclear whether Chrissy was exaggerating or not, but she’s since revealed that she once had liposuction on her armpit. Chrissy told Refinery29: “I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so.”

The 31-year-old also explained that she was happy with the results of the procedure. The star continued: “It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident.” She added: “I’m not shy talking about that sort of thing. I have no regrets.”

Chrissy has been running in star-studded circles ever since she married husband John in 2013. In particular, she’s known to be close friends with Kim Kardashian. Coincidentally, reality star Kim is yet to speak out about her own cosmetic treatment despite recent pictures of her bum sending the rumour mill into overdrive.

While Kim has previously admitted to having Botox, she’s always insisted that the rest of her appearance – including her behind – is completely natural. However, surgeon Dr. Tijion Esho recently speculated that Mrs Kanye West has gone under the knife a lot more than she lets on. He told The Mirror: “I suspect she has had a Brazilian butt lift where fat is taken from areas such as the abdomen and then thigh and then transferred to the bum. This would give a large bottom to waist ratio and would not show up on a X-ray as it’s normal fat.”

Be like Chrissy or Kim

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, you can either shout about it from the rooftops like Chrissy or keep it a secret like Kim. For more information about improving your appearance, contact The Belvedere Clinic today.

Three celebrities who are openly considering cosmetic surgery

It’s clear that undergoing cosmetic work no longer needs to be a secret, nor does the act of thinking about it.

Three celebrities who are openly considering cosmetic surgery

It would be wrong to think that celebrities jump in feet first when it comes to plastic surgery. Instead, it’s usually a long thought out process for them – much like it would be for any ordinary person.

That’s why there’s a growing list of women who have openly told the world that they could soon be going under the knife. It’s clear that undergoing cosmetic work no longer needs to be a secret, nor does the act of thinking about it. With this in mind, here are three women who are considering getting some treatment.

Celine Dion

Singing sensation Celine Dion has given some serious thought to having cosmetic work done. In fact, the songstress – who turns 50 next year – is just weighing up which procedure would suit her best. Speaking to The Sun, the French-Canadian recently revealed: “I’m still looking through the magazines to find the miracle things I can inject in myself. Not to be different, but just for maintenance.”

She added: “I’m still very open to what the future in the aesthetic world can bring to us that’s reversible, for example. I would love to do things. I’m going to be extremely careful if I do.”

Carol McGiffin

Unlike Celine, Carol McGiffin has already tried Botox. However, the Loose Woman is now looking ahead to the possibility of more permanent work. The 57-year-old recently told Bella Magazine: “I’ve had [Botox] done because I still really want to have a facelift.” She continued: “I just want to try and look my best. I don’t make enough effort. I look like an old tramp.”

Kate Garraway

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway has refused to rule out going under the knife in the future. In March, she told The Daily Record: “I wanted a facelift quite obsessively for ages. But everyone said it wouldn’t make any difference at all.” She added: “I’m not saying I’d never have a facelift long-term. Never say never.”

Are you also on the fence?

Cosmetic surgery – whether it’s a breast enlargement or liposuction – is a big decision. If like these women you’re still making your mind up, you can contact Belvedere today for expert advice and information that might help.

The lowdown on recovery from breast enlargement surgery

Making the decision to enhance your natural breast size is a huge step for many women.

recovery from breast enlargement surgery

However, often even when an breast enlargement may bring benefits in terms of increased self-esteem, confidence and self-image, many potential patients are deterred by the thought of having to undergo extensive healing following the operation.

If you have been considering breast enlargement, but are not sure what to expect in the days and weeks following the procedure, the guide below will give you all the basic information which you may need, to support you in making a decision for or against.

Timescales for recovery

Following on from your surgery, you can expect to have a few weeks of mild discomfort before the site is completely healed. Most women tend to take two full weeks off following the procedure, to give themselves plenty of time to recover without having to return to work too quickly.

We advise against driving and other more physical tasks for the first week, so if you have children, it’s probably a good idea to engage support from partners or relatives to help out with more physical elements of parenting, such as lifting and bathing your children. Having someone on hand to help with housework, groceries and other tasks which need a little more physical exertion is also a good idea in your first seven days of recovery.

In most cases, the stitches from the surgery will be removed at around one to two weeks following. If you have had dissolvable stitches, these will gradually break down by themselves.

How to expedite the recovery process

By taking it easy for the first two weeks, you’ll give yourself the best possible chance of a speedy recovery. Many surgeons recommend that you wear a comfortable sports bra for 24 hours, in the first three months following the procedure. This assists in supporting your new breasts and reducing stress on the surgical site.

If possible, it’s important to avoid all strenuous exercise such as using the treadmill at the gym or lifting heavy items for up to three months, to give your body the opportunity to heal completely without placing any strain on the area.

To reduce any chance of scarring, it’s important to keep your breasts out of direct sunlight for approximately twelve months following the operation. Massaging the scar site with oil can improve the area by providing moisture and keeping the skin smooth and elastic.

The average full recovery time for breast enlargement is around the six-week mark. In just a few months, your new breasts will be fully healed, look natural, and you will be able to ditch the sports bra and start to show off your new cleavage with lingerie. Contact us at Belvedere today for more information and advice.

The Only Way is cosmetic surgery

A significant number of the cast members on the hit reality TV show ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ have had cosmetic procedures.

the-ONLY-WAY-is-cosmetic-surgery

The cast members of The Only Way Is Essex are famous for their glitzy and glamorous lives: fast cars, designer clothes and accessories, fake tan and exclusive access to the best parties and events.

Let’s take a look at some of the TOWIE stars – past and present – who are no strangers to a bit of nip and tuck.

Chloe Sims

If there is anyone who has undergone a significant transformation since appearing on the show, it’s Chloe Sims. The beauty bar owner has been very open about cosmetic procedures, claiming that they make her feel much more confident. She’s had lip fillers, teeth veneers, botox and breast implants. Most famously, she has a Brazillian bum lift to make sure her rear end looks perky and bootylicious.

Megan McKenna

Having appeared on MTV’s Ex On The Beach and Celebrity Big Brother in January 2016, 24-year-old Megan McKenna made her TOWIE debut over a year ago. Since then her look has changed dramatically, with press sources suggesting that she’s had botox, cheek filler and lip fillers.

Amy Childs

Amy Childs starred in TOWIE in seasons one and two, as an 18-year-old beautician from Brentwood, best pal to Sam Faiers and cousin to Harry Derbridge – who both starred in the show. She had already had a boob job before she came on the show, and since quitting the show she has gone on to have botox and lip fillers.

Ferne McCann

After leaving TOWIE and after taking part in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2015, Ferne McCann underwent a nose job, and she showed off her new nose live on TV on This Morning. The television presenter claims that she had the nose job “for herself” and not to further her career, as some had speculated.

Mario Falcone

Like Ferne McCann, TOWIE hunk Mario Falcone went under the knife last year and showed off the result of his nose job live on This Morning, seemingly happy with his new look.

Other TOWIE stars who have undergone cosmetic procedures include Lauren Pope, Maria Fowler, Kirk Norcross, Gemma Collins, Jessica Wright and Billi Mucklow.

If you are interested in getting plastic surgery, then feel free to get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic and we will provide you with the best support.

How long should it take to heal from cosmetic surgery ?

Before you undergo any cosmetic surgery procedure, it’s well worth looking into the expected recovery time.

How long should it take to heal from surgery, and what should I do?

This will of course differ from person to person, as well as depend on the nature of the surgery – but it’s still essential to gaze at the estimates, just so you know what you might be in for.

Breast enlargement surgery can take only a matter of weeks, but it’s recommended that you take at least 2 of those weeks off work to properly recuperate.

– A tummy tuck shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks before your sutures can be removed.

Rhinoplasty surgery will also take around 2 weeks before the bruising, swelling and other unpleasant side effects subside.

– With liposuction, a lot of people can resume most activities after a few days and proceed as normal in as little as 2 weeks.

As mentioned, these times will change according to the nature of the surgeries and an array of other factors. All of which a good surgeon will go over with you before you decide to say yes or no.

But it’s not just the aftercare you should think about. Mentally preparing yourself ahead of it all could change the experience drastically. Simply sitting down with the information that your surgeon will have provided you with, as well as reading about pre and post-surgery experiences, will help you get an idea of what you’re in for.

By knowing what will happen to you, how you may feel and what you will be limited to doing, will likely save yourself a lot of stress and worry. You will no doubt be a little woozy once you’ve come out of the operating room, but any thoughts of panic about sensations and potential side effects will quickly pass once you’ve accepted them.

Talking to your surgeon and paying real attention to them is an invaluable thing. There’s no reason for them to hold back on some of the less desirable details, and they should know the ins and outs like the back of their own hand.

Should you be considering any surgeries and live in the London area, feel free to contact the Belvedere Clinic or take a read of our blogs for all manner of facts.

Celebrity Stars you never knew had lipo

The weight loss procedures that prove most popular among celebrities are the tummy tuck and liposuction.

Celebrity Stars you never knew had lipoOut of the two though, liposuction offers the most versatility as it can be carried out on not just the stomach but also the arms, hips, chest, back, buttocks, thighs, chin, neck and face.

Celebrities are always on the lookout for things that can make them look younger, svelter and more gorgeous. This includes eating well and exercising, both of which have seen the careers of wellness and fitness vloggers sky-rocket. However, the most tried and tested method that stars, both Hollywood and homegrown, use for rejuvenation is cosmetic surgery.

This amazing breadth of treatment options gives celebrities every reason to address their problem areas with liposuction or Vaser Lipo, and many do. There are of course plenty of famous faces who are well known for having had liposuction, such as Kerry Katona, Katy Price and Sharon Osbourne. These ladies shout from the rooftops about the amazing benefits that celebrity cosmetic surgery has had for them. Yet are there others who you don’t know about yet? The following stars have all taken advantage of the ever-innovating world of liposuction to maintain their picture-perfect physiques.

Britney Spears

Remember Britney’s rock hard abs from the I’m A Slave 4 U video? Well, after childbirth she wanted them back. The pop star had already plumped for a breast augmentation and a rumoured tummy tuck, and so she complemented her look with liposuction before her ongoing residency in Las Vegas began.

Kim Kardashian

Kim’s first husband Damon Thomas has shed light on the social butterfly’s surgery choices, explaining that she has had both liposuction and a breast enlargement. Well, she wouldn’t be the only one in her family, as both she, Kourtney and Kylie have chosen rhinoplasty surgery to sculpt their noses and their mother Kris Jenner has been very open about having had a boob job.

Demi Moore

For her role as Angel Madison in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Demi needed to be every inch the sultry seductress. Despite constant workouts Demi, who was 39 at the time, decided to undergo liposuction on her abs, thighs and knees in order to confidently steal scenes from the Angels.

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the biggest action stars in the world and is in amazing physical shape. The movie star obviously doesn’t need any help in the fitness department, but in 2005 he opted for liposuction on his famously massive chest, as he says it was getting a little too large.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba chose cosmetic surgery to restore her flawless form after she gave birth to two beautiful daughters. It is said that the star opted for liposuction on many different areas of her body so that she could address stubborn fat cells and snap back to her pre-pregnancy shape. The stunning actress certainly shows that a person of any weight might choose liposuction in order to remove fat that is not respondent to changes in diet or exercise.

There is Celebrity Stars that SHOUT about their Cosmetic Surgery

The Belvedere Clinic have carried out recently Tummy Tuck Surgery and Liposuction to our one and only Kerry Katona, who has spoken on social media many times and is quite happy to flaunt her new looks to the rest of world through national press

Did Bella Hadid get a nose job?

Bella Hadid and her sister Gigi are among the biggest top models of the moment, but the youngest Hadid has not resisted the temptations of cosmetic surgery.

Did Bella Hadid get a nose job?

Being Bella Hadid means having a steady army of fans that cover you in compliments every day. But that doesn’t mean losing all insecurity about your looks, and so the American top model has surprised everyone with her old photos, in which she appeared with decidedly different physical traits from the ones she has today. So did she get a rhinoplasty?  We don’t have confirmation from the model herself, but it’s clear that a few years ago Isabella, better known as Bella, had a very different nose and lips. Some sources have even pointed to her personal insecurity compared with her sister Gigi, who is currently more famous. This explains why Bella, at the young age of 20, has felt the need for cosmetic surgery.

Her nose before and after the rhinoplasty

Her dream was to become an Olympic horse riding champion, but Bella Hadid could not fulfil it because of Lyme’s illness, which she was diagnosed with in 2013. After this traumatic moment, her modelling career started, despite her introverted and insecure personality, and brought her to become an icon of sensuality.

Her shyness got worse when her sister Gigi made her debut on international runways, reaching heights of success unheard of before. And so rumour has it that the youngest Hadid followed the trend of celebrity plastic surgery. She went into town with her father’s credit card and returned with completely different facial features.

We do not know if these speculations are true, but old photos of the top model show a different nose, lip and cheek bone shape.

In the before pictures, her nose was long and had a slight hump on its back, whereas now it’s well-proportioned and has a finer tip. The same thing happened to her lips: before they were thin and not very well-defined, whereas now they’re much fuller. Finally, her cheek-bones are now more defined, possibly because of fillers and botox.

Whether or not Bella underwent surgery, you might be considering a similar procedure. Contact the Belvedere Clinic today to discuss further.

Is the rise in cosmetic surgery procedures influenced by social media?

According to plastic surgeons, fat infusion and facial surgery is on the rise due to the influence stemming from social media sites.

Is the rise in cosmetic surgery procedures influenced by social media?

 

Although in previous years, celebrities aimed to reinforce natural beauty, the popularity of cosmetic procedures is higher than ever. The slight drop in face-lifts in 2015 has since seen a 4% increase and continues to escalate.

The amount of selfies posted on social media sites has seemed to make individuals question their appearance, with the aim to improve their looks.

Although editing software and applications have often been used to alter photographs, it seems that individuals are now craving a real-life confidence boost to get the face and body of their dreams.

According to Dr. Debra Johnson: “Patients are captivated by instant improvements to the face. It’s evident in the popularity of apps and filters that change how we shape and shade our faces. While there are more options than ever to rejuvenate the face, a face-lift done by a board-certified plastic surgeon can have a dramatic, longer-lasting result, which is why I am not surprised to see face-lifts back in the top five most popular cosmetic surgical procedures.” [http://www.healthline.com/health-news/latest-trends-in-plastic-surgery#2].

In 2016, over 17 million facial surgeries were carried out. The desire for nose reshaping and eyelid procedures has also risen by 2% in the past year; perhaps all due to the selfie trend.

Although cosmetic and plastic procedures are usually associated with getting plastic implants, this is not always the case. Individuals are now choosing to use natural fat as a replacement for plastic within surgeries. Last year, breast augmentations saw the use of natural fat used within procedures jump up to 72%. The natural fat is taken from other areas of the body. For example, the abdomen or buttock which is then used in areas such as the breast. The result of these treatments means that procedures may be more cost-effective for individuals in the hope of creating a more natural appearance.

Stephen Bear supports Charlotte Crosby’s desire for more Cosmetic Surgery

Charlotte famously underwent a nose job in 2016. However, Stephen has been urged to speak out now after his girlfriend revealed she is considering surgery on her breasts.

Stephen Bear supports Charlotte Crosby’s desire for more cosmetic surgery

Stephen Bear and Charlotte Crosby are the hottest couple in town. The reality stars – famed for their appearances on Ex on the Beach and Geordie Shore – have only been dating for a few short months but most of their relationship has played out in the public eye. They seem to be going from strength to strength, with Stephen now revealing that he’d support Charlotte even if she wanted to change her appearance again.

The Celebrity Big Brother star told OK! magazine: “If you’re unhappy with your nose and you get it done, afterwards you feel more confident and happy. Some people see a person being happy and they just want to run them down.” Charlotte famously underwent a nose job in 2016. However, Stephen has been urged to speak out now after his girlfriend revealed she is considering surgery on her breasts. In the same interview, Charlotte explained: “There is something that I feel under confident about. I don’t know whether I’d get it changed but I’ve been doing some research. It’s known as ‘the uni-boob’, but the actual term is symmastia.”

In 2015, Charlotte did toy with the idea of changing the appearance of her breasts with a boob job. However, she suggested that she’d prefer to wait until she got a little older. Since then though, she’s undergone numerous cosmetic procedures, including lip fillers, Botox and the aforementioned rhinoplasty. She famously told OK!: “I’m always getting my lips done, though. I’ll probably get them done again in about 5 months.”

The comments echo the words of co-star Chloe Ferry, who just this week revealed that she wouldn’t swap her pumped up pout for the world. Chloe told Closer: “My lips are what I love the most. I’d get lip fillers for the rest of my life! I used to have really gross lips; I basically didn’t have any as they were so thin. As soon as I could afford them I got fillers and I love them.”

Chloe Ferry receives cosmetic procedure on Snapchat

Geordie Shore’s Chloe Ferry has given her fans an in-depth look at what it’s like to undergo a cosmetic procedure after having fillers pumped into her chin while on Snapchat.

Chloe-ferry-cosmetic-surgery

The reality star – fresh off appearing on Celebrity Big Brother – streamed the footage on the app before showing off her new facial profile. While for some it might be quite an intimate moment, Chloe’s never had any qualms about letting her fan base know all about the work she’s had done.

In fact, the television personality – who joined the wild MTV show in 2015 – has previously admitted to undergoing numerous aesthetic procedures since shooting to stardom. Just some of the work she’s had done includes a nose job, a brow lift, lip fillers and Botox. She’s already set her sights on a second rhinoplasty after the first was primarily intended to remove a bump.

At the end of the day, all the treatment had led to a huge improvement in Chloe’s level of self-esteem. Sadly, before the work the starlet considered herself to be ‘ugly’. Last year she explained to Mail Online: “I feel like I look a lot better now. I don’t like natural. When I see before and after pictures I think I’ve changed so much. When I see pictures from when I first went to Geordie Shore, I think: ‘Woah. Was I that ugly?’ I wasn’t gorgeous!”

Of course, Chloe isn’t the only person to go under the knife from Geordie Shore. Marnie Simpson has previously admitted to having a boob lift and liposuction, whereas Holly Hagan’s had a breast enlargement and Botox. Meanwhile, the male cast members have also been known to get in on the action. Kyle Christie underwent a nose job in 2016, and before that Aaron Chalmers had the same operation in 2014.

Are you interested?

If you’re interested in improving your appearance, cosmetic surgery might just be the best answer. Unlike Chloe, it can of course be done in a much more private setting rather than being streamed on Snapchat. For more information about what procedure might just be for you, get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic .

Mama June transforms after multiple cosmetic procedures

American television personality Mama June has completely transformed after undergoing numerous cosmetic procedures.

mama-june-before-after-cosmetic surgery

The star – famed for her time on the hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo – faced years of criticism after becoming a household name in 2012. The 37-year-old has now said that enough is enough and has gone under the knife to overhaul her appearance.

This week she’s proudly flaunted the outcome and as a result she’s made headlines all around the world. So how’s she done it? Well, the mum-of-four has had a tummy tuck and a breast lift, as well as having skin removed from her neck and arms. Also, thanks to gastric sleeve surgery, she’s lost an enormous amount of weight to shrink from 33st to a petite size eight.

Due to how different she looks in such a short space of time, Mama June – real name June Shannon – has had to deny that she’s been wearing a fat suit. Speaking on iHeart Radio, she said: “I definitely did not wear a fat suit, I was fat. People don’t realise this journey has been going on since May of last year, my last surgery was in December.”

Mama June is so happy to have turned to cosmetic surgery that she insists she wouldn’t stand in the way if any of her kids wanted to undergo similar work when they are older. During an interview with Page Six, she explained: “If it would make them confident, then yes, I would recommend the surgery. You have to do your research, definitely, and that’s what got me into the gastric sleeve. That helps you lose as much weight as possible.”

Mama June seems to echo the sentiments of Shameless star Tina Malone, who famously underwent weight loss surgery herself. Discussing why she opted to go under the knife, the actress once told the Liverpool Echo: “I just wanted to be my best.”

Are you ready to transform?

There is a wide range of cosmetic procedures available for anyone who wants to improve their appearance and feel better about themselves. For more information, you can receive expert advice by contacting the Belvedere Clinic today.

Chloe Khan is happy to flaunt her nose job

Chloe Khan is happy to flaunt the results after undergoing nose surgery.

Chloe-Khan-is-happy-to-flaunt her Nose Job

The reality star – famed for appearances on shows such as X Factor and Celebrity Big Brother – confirmed reports that she had a secret rhinoplasty when she posted pictures of her bandaged nose to her followers on Instagram. Many of Chloe’s fans even commented on how great she looked, with one individual writing: “Your nose looks amaaaaazing.”

Of course, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to learn that Chloe has gone under the knife again. That’s because the 26-year-old has always been open about her fondness of cosmetic procedures. In fact, just last year she boasted about having spent £50,000 to achieve her jaw-dropping image. She told New! magazine: “I’m not addicted to surgery, but when you have something done and you love the results, it makes you want to get something else.”

The star added: “In my circles, surgery isn’t weird. It’s like going for dinner! I love looking like a Barbie and being out of proportion. I’ve spent about £20k on my boobs, £9k on my nose, £8.5k on veneers, and my lips were another £10k. So about £50k in total.”

Chloe has previously been very open about her love of celebrity culture. This admiration of other famous faces was certainly clear when it was revealed that she’d had two of her boob jobs performed by the same surgeon who operated on Katie Price.

Likewise, Chloe has probably been inspired by Simon Cowell. Long time fans will remember that it was Simon who Chloe desperately tried to impress when she first shot to stardom as a contestant on X Factor in 2010. Simon, of course, has also been open about the work he’s had done. In 2015, the talent show judge told The Daily Mirror: “Hopefully I look better now – I probably did have a little too much Botox a couple of years ago, because everyone on TV has it.”

Is cosmetic surgery for you?

Unlike Chloe, you don’t have to spend £50,000 to achieve your dream look. Instead, you can undergo affordable procedures at the Belvedere Clinic.  Get in touch for more information.

CBB and cosmetic surgery: Now it’s Kim Woodburn’s turn

Kim Woodburn has set her sights on plastic surgery after once again shooting to stardom.

CBB and cosmetic surgery Now it's Kim Woodburns turn

The television cleaner – famed for shows such as How Clean Is Your House and I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here – is fresh out of Celebrity Big Brother. Now that she’s once again in the public eye, the 74-year-old is eyeing up an image overhaul. In particular, she’s looking to have liposuction. Kim told Reveal magazine: “I would like to be younger. I have some little wrinkles on my stomach which I’d like taken off with liposuction.”

Kim, who has spent weeks living with the likes of Nicola McLean, Heidi Montag and Bianca Gascoigne – a trio who have all previously admitted to going under the knife – said that she would never judge someone for wanting to improve their appearance. She told the publication: “I’ve got no objection to people making themselves look better but please, do it nicely.”

Of course, Kim isn’t the first famous face to consider getting work done after a stint on CBB. Following the 2016 instalment, both Jeremy McConnell and Stephanie Davis underwent cosmetic procedures. Male model Jeremy treated himself to a nose job, whereas former soap star Stephanie had lip fillers.

Much like Kim, the pair were seemingly convinced that cosmetic work was a great option after spending weeks living with a number of surgically enhanced stars. The list includes David Gest, Nancy Dell’Olio, Christopher Maloney and Danniella Westbrook.

In fact, Danniella was so fond of going under the knife that she had invested in almost 40 different procedures before she turned 40-years-old in 2013. The Ex-EastEnders actress previously revealed that she’d had a number of boob jobs to help with her career and improve her appearance. She also suggested that she’d have more work done if she thought it was necessary. Danniella told the Daily Star: “I wouldn’t totally rule out the odd nip and tuck in the future.”

The stars are leading the way

Remember, you don’t have to appear on Celebrity Big Brother before having cosmetic surgery. Instead, you can start the ball rolling on improving your appearance by contacting the Belvedere today.

Has Katie Price had a ‘mini facelift?’

Katie Price has sparked rumours that she’s once again had cosmetic surgery.

Has Katie Price had a ‘mini facelift?’

The glamour model – formerly known as Jordan – got people talking when she was spotted with a mysterious scar running across her hairline after a recent television appearance. Amid all the speculation, a leading surgeon has told Mirror Online that it could be the result of a ‘mini facelift’.

Of course, Katie has never been shy about discussing the work she’s had done during her career. In fact, she’s openly admitted to undergoing numerous procedures including boob jobs, breast reductions, liposuction and Botox. She’s freely admitted to these ops during interviews, television appearances and on social media.

Just last month the mum-of-five proudly flaunted the results of her tenth bum lift when she posted a video to her fans on Instagram. Katie captioned it: “I’m so happy with my bottom #nonsurgicalbuttlift that now after 10 treatments I’m maintaining it.”

Katie originally reasoned that she was using cosmetic surgery as a stepping stone to stardom. The procedures have obviously paid off as she became one of the most in-demand models of the early 2000s. She’s now become a television personality after appearing on shows such as I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here and Celebrity Big Brother. She’s also a panelist on Loose Women.

Just last year, Katie explained that she now undergoes cosmetic work for personal reasons rather than professional. She told Mail Online: “My views on plastic surgery are the same as they have always been: Do what you feel is right for you. I wouldn’t rule out any treatment, if it felt right and I thought I needed it. I hope when I’m 90 you’ll only be able to tell my real age by my knees and feet!”

Does Katie’s honesty impress you?

You can bet that it won’t take Katie long to confirm her recent ‘mini facelift’. After all, she just loves to let the world know all her little beauty tricks. If you’re thinking of following in the footsteps of Katie, you can receive expert advice by contacting the Belvedere today.

Thigh and buttock lifts to complement weight loss

An increasing amount of people are undergoing thigh and buttock lift surgery following excessive weight loss, whether that is through diet and exercise or through bariatric surgery.

Thigh and buttock lifts to complement weight loss

Patients are turning to surgery because despite having already undergone dramatic body transformations, excess skin can leave people feeling physically and emotionally uncomfortable with their new physique. The thigh area can be a particularly troublesome area for excess skin as it tends to droop more than other areas of the body.

The physical and emotional discomfort that stems from this is linked to the appearance of loose, sagging skin. It is a result of the lack of elasticity in the skin and occurs following working incredibly hard to loose large amounts of weight. The answer for many people is a thigh and buttock lift which removes some of this skin, leaving a more sculpted appearance. Specifically, this provides tighter more toned buttocks by reducing or even eradicating cellulite on thighs and taking away excess folds. Many patients describe the feeling of having excess skin as being a final hurdle, that despite such a concerted effort, they are still not benefiting from the rewards of reducing their body weight.

Hidden benefits

A thigh and buttock lift is often not solely about appearance. Hidden benefits from this surgery include;

  • • Minimising overhanging skin which can cause painful chaffing – this can easily escalate to sores and infections.
  • • Enables clothes to fit better.
  • • Boosts your emotional health and self esteem by completing the process of body transformation after weight loss or bariatric surgery.
  • • Scars are generally hidden within the body’s natural skin folds.
  • • The results from thigh and buttock lifts are permanent.

It is a relatively short procedure, usually under two hours during which time your surgeon physically lifts the skin to give the effect of firm thighs and buttocks.

This surgery is not to be confused with a Brazilian buttock lift, which is a procedure that transfers fat to add volume to your buttocks.

Perfectly toned, sculpted legs are not always the result of diet and exercise. Thighs in particular are influenced heavily by genetics. Thigh and buttock lift surgery provide people with the option to achieve the body contours that they desire.

X Factor stars and cosmetic surgery: James Arthur Has Nose Job

X Factor has seen hundreds of hopefuls vie for the top prize since it launched in 2004.

X Factor stars and cosmetic surgery James Arthur

As well as ultimately securing a number one single, many former contestants have also gone on to overhaul their image by going under the knife. The latest star to keep this cosmetic surgery trend going is James Arthur.

 

James – who won the talent show in 2012 – revealed he recently had a nose job. The singer told fans that he was undergoing the op with a post to his followers on Twitter. He wrote: “I’m in hospital waiting to have my nose broke back into place.” James later revealed that he’d decided on the procedure after having “one too many scuffles as a teen”. In an interview with The Sun, he elaborated: “They are going to break it and put it back in place. It’s all my years of fighting – too much fighting as a young guy.” In the same interview, he also revealed that he’d had his teeth ‘done’ and would soon be getting dental veneers.

Of course, James is far from the first star to make changes to his appearance following his stint on X Factor. Former hopeful Chris Maloney had three hair transplants, two nose jobs and an eyebrow lift once he was booted off the show. In a televised interview, he revealed that he’d made the decision to have work done after being relentlessly taunted by viewers.

In 2015, Chris said: “I hated how big my nose was so I’ve had surgery twice on it – to make it smaller and change the way my profile looks. When the bandages first came off I looked in the mirror and had a complete panic attack because I was all bloody and bruised. Now I feel so much happier for it.”

Is the trend for you?

You may be wondering if this trend is for you – and it’s very possible that it is. No matter what procedure you’ve got your eye on, you can receive expert information by getting in touch with the Belvedere Clinic today. Like James and Chris, it could be just the solution to improve your life.

What You Should Know About Male Chest Reduction

 

Men afflicted with this condition are often very embarrassed about it. In addition, this condition can cause a great deal of pain. Thankfully, this condition can easily be treated.

What You Should Know About Male Chest Reduction

Most people assume that women are the only ones that would be interested in a breast reduction. However, there are some males that are also looking for a way to reduce the size of their chest. These men are afflicted with a condition known as gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia is a condition that can cause male breast glands to enlarge. Many men that are afflicted with this condition have very large chests. In some cases, the condition is caused by a hormonal imbalance. In other situations, it is caused by a condition called pseudogynecomastia, which can lead to excess fat deposits on the chest.

There are cosmetic surgeons that specialise in male chest reductions. A skilled surgeon can get rid of the fat deposits on the chest, and can give men a more masculine appearance.

Here’s what you should know about male chest reduction:

It’s Safe And Simple

In the past, cosmetic procedures could be very dangerous. As techniques have advanced, that has begun to change. Now, there are many surgical procedures that can be done very quickly.

Male chest reduction is one of those procedures. In most cases, the surgery itself is fairly short. In addition, the recovery time is not very long. Men can get a breast reduction and go back to leading their normal lives.

Scarring

While most men that suffer from gynecomastia are interested in having a breast reduction, some are worried about the marks that the procedure would leave behind. While there may be some scarring, it should not be significant. Many men won’t have any kind of marking at all.

When doctors perform these procedures, they take care to ensure that they don’t leave any kinds of scars. Surgeons are careful about where they make their cuts, and they take steps to ensure that those cuts heal properly.

What To Look For In A Surgeon

If you or a loved on is considering having this procedure done, you will have to find a cosmetic surgeon that is able to perform the procedure. You should work with a board certified cosmetic surgeon that has experience with this type of procedure.

The surgeon that you work with should be able to provide you with examples of the work they have done in the past. You can look at before and after pictures. See if the surgeon can help you to achieve the kind of results you are looking for.

You also need to make sure that you are fully comfortable with the cosmetic surgeon that you hire. When you work with a surgeon, you will need to be candid about your medical history. Find someone that you can open up to.

Gynecomastia is easier to treat than it was in the past. The men that suffer from this condition can have their breasts removed without an issue. The Belvedere Clinic has been a market leader in Gynecomastia and Female breast surgery for over 30 years. Call now for a free consultation with One of our surgeons specializing in Gynecomastia surgery.

Anastasia Karanikolaou insists women shouldn’t be ashamed of cosmetic surgery

Young Hollywood are all for cosmetic surgery – and they have no qualms about making this fact public.

@stassiebaby

 

This is especially true for model and social media siren Anastasia Karanikolaou. The ‘It Girl’ – who lists Kylie Jenner as one of her best friends – boasts 189,000 followers on Twitter and a whopping 2.2million fans on Instagram.

Just last month, she used these platforms to let people know that she was treating herself to a bit of work. The 19-year-old shared a picture in the midst of a surgical consultation in Beverly Hills, along with the caption: “So excited to have met with @drghavami to discuss something I’ve been thinking about for a while! Stay tuned for more.”

Anastasia has now revealed that she arranged for the consultation after becoming unhappy with her breasts. The web star told Harper’s Bazaar: “I used to have the cutest, perkiest boobs when I was young. Someone had told me that if you wear an underwire bra it makes your boobs sag. I had cute boobs so I would never wear a bra. Over time, I found out that whoever told me that was completely wrong.”

The popular teen eventually decided that she would undergo a breast lift rather than a breast enlargement and the work was carried out last month. Dr. Ashkan Ghavami performed the procedure after having previously operated on celebrities such as Iggy Azalea.

Following the cosmetic procedure, Anastasia revealed that she doesn’t think people should be ashamed of going under the knife. She explained to the publication: “I was very open to sharing – plastic surgery is nothing to be ashamed of. A lot of people think plastic surgery is only for cosmetic reasons, to change something you’re insecure about.” She added: “I wanted to show people that there’s nothing to be ashamed of – that it’s so common for girls to have this issue and you can do something to fix it.”

Is cosmetic surgery for you?

If Anastasia’s words have had an impact on you, then it’s probably time to arrange your own consultation. For more information, you can contact the Belvedere private hospital today.

5 interesting facts about tummy tucks

 

Tummy tucks are one of the most commonly undertaken procedures of cosmetic surgery.

5-interesting-facts-about-tummy-tucks

This is true with both women and men, but notably, tummy tucks are popular with women who have had children and are unable to get their stomachs back to how they were before through exercise alone. Read on for five interesting facts about tummy tucks.

1. You can choose a full or mini tummy tuck

Some women feel their need for a tummy tuck is not severe enough, e.g they have only a small ‘muffin top’ and don’t feel that it warrants the surgery of a ‘full’ tuck, yet they can’t get rid of it through exercise alone. The great news is that there is now a choice of tummy tuck available, with either a full tummy tuck (also known as a Complete Abdominoplasty) or a mini tummy tuck. Mini tummy tucks, also known as Partial Abdominoplasty, take less time, cost less money and are ideal for those who need a smaller amount of work done.

2. It’s very popular

Tummy tucks are very popular and in 2015 they were the 8th most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women in the UK. Even for men, they were they 9th most popular procedure.

3. You can get more than one procedure carried out

Tummy tucks can be carried out in conjunction with a choice of other procedures, which means you only need one general anaesthetic for two procedures, which in turns costs you less and means less recuperation time. Popular choices for complementary procedures include a breast uplift or vein removal, combinations often referred to as a ‘Mummy Makeover’.

4. Complementary procedures

As part of a tummy tuck procedure, many patients have liposuction carried out to complement the tuck itself. This can help rid you of fat that is hard to budge, which is common in the stomach area as it’s generally the last place it stays.

5. Celebs who have had tummy tucks

You may not know it but many celebs have undergone tummy tucks. Those rumoured to have had the procedure include Kerry Katona, Tara Reid, Shar Jackson and Britney Spears.

Considering a tummy tuck yourself? Contact the team at the Belvedere Clinic today to book a consultation.
