Four interesting facts about breast implants

Many women considering breast implant surgery are often surprised at realising how little they know about it.

Four interesting facts about breast implants

There is so much conflicting information swirling around that separating fact from fiction can be difficult, and lots of ladies are put off exploring their options further simply because they lack the proper facts to help them make an informed decision.

That’s why we’ve created this post, to help clarify some of the most common myths and misconceptions.

1: Breast augmentation is the most common kind of cosmetic surgery

Is this something you already knew or not? If the answer is the latter, you might be surprised to learn that far more women have breast augmentation surgery than many of us realise. In 2015 alone, almost 280,000 women and teenagers put themselves through procedures to have their breasts enlarged with either saline or silicone implants, whilst a further 106,000 breast cancer patients underwent reconstructions.

2: The surgery has been available for over 50 years

You might also be surprised to discover how long breast augmentation procedures have existed for. First made available in the 1960s, they only really gained popularity in the 1980s, but by 1990, almost one million women had undergone surgery.

3: Most women can still breastfeed

There is a common misconception surrounding breast augmentation, which is that it makes it impossible for women to breastfeed. This is not the case at all. Although women are three times more likely to have an inadequate milk supply following the procedure, many can and do continue to be able to feed their children naturally even after surgery. To find out whether this is something you ought to be worried about, we recommend consulting your doctor.

4: Breast implant surgery lasts seven to 12 years

Another myth is that breast implants will only last for a very short period before needing to be replaced, but this is not true. Typically fine for between seven to 12 years, replacement surgeries are few and far between, and the cost of these will often be included in your original medical bill, meaning that no extra outlay is involved.

Which Love Island stars have had surgery?

ITV’s reality TV show hit, Love Island, is famed for its glamorous contestants, gorgeous setting, and romantic intrigues,

Love-Island-Who's-had-surgery

so it’s little surprise that a lot of the lovely ladies it features have gone under the knife to achieve their dazzling looks.

Tanned, toned, and naturally pretty many of them might be, but it still hasn’t stopped them from turning to cosmetic surgery to make themselves even more fabulously flawless than they were to begin with.

Let’s take a look at who’s gone under the knife…

Chloe Crowhurst

Blonde bombshell Chloe Crowhurst might be a head turner, but she’s had plenty of help to improve her appearance, with experts suggesting that she’s modelling lip fillers, Botox in her forehead, around her eyes and along her frown line, a nose job, and breast implants.

Tyne-Lexy Clarson

Breath-taking brunette Tyne-Lexy boasted that she’d once turned down £40,000 for a date, but her gorgeous appearance is not all natural; the quickly dumped Islander looks suspiciously like she’s had both a boob job and veneers.

Olivia Atwood

Olivia is another of the show’s stars to have gone under the knife, with surgeons suggesting that she’s had a breast augmentation, as well as non-surgical treatments such as lip fillers, the giveaway being her larger upper lip, which is often a result of overfilling beyond the mouth’s natural proportions.

Jessica Shears

Beautiful Jessica has had a little bit of help as well. Having admitted having a boob job, some believe that she has had surgery on her nose too, accounting for its incredibly slim, feminine shape and gentle slope. Although this could equally be down to good genetics, her high cheekbones are not, instead being the result of fillers. She has also openly stated that she intends to have a second boob job, as she is unhappy with her current FF breasts, believing that they’ve become ‘lopsided and saggy’ since initially going under the knife aged 19.

Natural or otherwise, the Love Island contestants are undoubtedly beautiful, to both the viewers at home and their show love interests, and they’re certainly doing a fantastic job of keeping us all entertained.

Jodie Marsh reveals plans for boob reduction

Jodie Marsh has revealed that she has set her sights on a breast reduction

Jodie Marsh reveals plans for boob reduction

The glamour model – who has built a career on the back of her 32GG boobs – has explained that she wouldn’t mind making her chest smaller when she gets older,

but admitted that she doesn’t see the procedure as ‘an urgent thing’ just yet. Speaking about the plans for plastic surgery, the 38-year-old told Mail Online: “I think it’s an age thing. The older you get, the more you just want to look elegant and ladylike. I love my boobs, don’t get me wrong. That’s why it’s not an urgent thing. I think they’re brilliant and lots of fun, big and bouncy and juicy, but I don’t want to see boobs hanging out every time.”

Jodie has never been afraid to go under the knife. In fact, the star has undergone numerous cosmetic procedures over the years to achieve her remarkable appearance. Back in 2009, she went so far as to describe Botox as ‘the best thing ever’ during an interview with New! magazine. She said: “I’ve had Botox on my forehead and around my eyes, and fillers in my nose-to-mouth laughter lines. I can’t imagine not having Botox – it’s the best thing ever. My face looks better now than when I was 23.” During the same interview, she also revealed that she had her lips plumped up six times in the space of just one year.

Jodie’s transformation hasn’t just been about landing magazine covers and television shows. Instead, she’s previously said that some procedures – in particular her rhinoplasty – was to build her self-confidence after years of bullying. Jodie once wrote in the Guardian: “I look in the mirror and I do feel beautiful. I’m not trying to promote plastic surgery, but the two procedures I have had changed my life. Because of the bullying I had a nose job, and afterwards I felt stronger.”

Of course, if you are unhappy with any aspect of your appearance then you can follow in Jodie’s footsteps. There are many cosmetic procedures available to you if you get in touch with Belvedere today.

Modern Family: Who’s had cosmetic surgery from TV’s most popular show?

Modern Family burst onto screens almost eight years ago and quickly became one of television’s most popular shows. With season nine just around the corner, the cast is now world-famous after some episodes have racked up nearly 15 million viewers.

The question everyone wants to know now is this: are the stars all natural?

Modern_Family_who's had cosmetic-surgery

While many of the actors have stayed hush on this matter, several of the actresses have spilt the beans about their history of cosmetic surgery.

So let’s look at who’s had what done.

Ariel Winter

Ariel – who plays Alex Dunphy – underwent a breast reduction in 2015. Prior to the operation, the teen was unhappy with her size 32F boobs and instructed surgeons to make her a 34D. The 19-year-old later revealed that she was motivated to undergo the procedure so she could wear what she wanted on the red carpet. She told Glamour: “It’s hard when you’re a teenage girl and you already have a lot of ridicule and then you pile on more, and it’s kind of… it just gets too much.”

Julie Bowen

Julie – who plays Claire Dunphy – has spent years ignoring rumours that she’s had fillers and Botox. However, she did reveal to having some sort of laser treatment during an interview with Health magazine in 2012. She explained: “I’ve had lasers levelled at my face and I would like to do Fraxel.”

Sofia Vergara

Sofia – who plays Gloria Pritchett – is the breakout star of Modern Family. Even though she’s never admitted to going under the knife, the actress has openly stated that she’s got a shopping list of procedures in mind for the future. When asked about her willingness to have cosmetic surgery, she once told Redbook: “Why not? I mean, not yet, but maybe [I’ll do] my under-eye bags in my 50s. We’ll see what I need, but I’m not saying no!” The starlet later said she was planning a boob job during an episode of Watch What Happens Live in 2015.

A ‘modern’ way of doing things

It’s 2017 and everyone is entitled to cosmetic surgery if that’s what they desire. If you fancy improving your appearance much like the stars of Modern Family, get in touch with Belvedere Clinic today.

Lip Fillers

Melania Trump’s £12,000 plastic surgery makeover

As the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump is arguably one of the most influential women in the world.

Melania Trump's £12,000 plastic surgery makeover

Needless to say, she has taken every step to make sure that her looks are pristine and can hold up to the harsh scrutiny that often comes along with the spotlight.

Celebrity cosmetic surgery experts have analysed Melania’s smooth skin and perfect features and estimated that she has likely had cosmetic surgery procedures to the tune of £12,000 in order to prepare for her role on the world stage.

Of course, Melania was a striking natural beauty when she started out as a model in the late eighties, but along the way she has refined her features as well as stopping the clock on the ageing process. Stunningly, the Slovenian beauty is forty-seven years old, but – thanks to her Botox treatments – she could easily pass for ten years younger. These muscle-relaxing procedures were most likely carried out on the star’s forehead and eye area, providing a lift to the eyebrows as well as the baby soft skin on her brow. Melania has also chosen lip fillers in order to fight an age-related decline in the fullness of her pout. In fact, her lips are more luscious and full now than they were even in her youth.

In addition to these non-surgical treatments, Mrs Trump has undergone rhinoplasty surgery in order to refine and shape her nose. This ‘nasal reshaping’ is the key to her entire facial transformation and pulls together the rest of her look by perfectly balancing her features. The result of the First Lady’s nose job is a more chiselled, feminine and delicate look, with the thinner bridge and tip perfectly complimenting her naturally high and prominent cheekbones.

Focussing lastly on Melania’s figure, it has been widely observed that she has opted for a breast enlargement, as her breasts are high, full and very regular in shape, especially considering that the FLOTUS is almost fifty years old. Interestingly, it has been noted that at some point over the years Melania has chosen to trade her large, round breast implants for some more understated teardrop shaped implants. Perhaps this was when she realised that she might become the First Lady, and decided that a more minimal and less sexualised appearance might suit the role better.

If, like Melania, you’re interested in refreshing your look and reshaping your life, contact the Belvedere Clinic today for all the information you need to start your journey.

5 reasons why women choose liposuction

It can be very soul destroying when a woman eats a healthy diet and exercises but is still left with unsightly pockets of fat.

5 reasons why women choose liposuction

Liposuction is a form of cosmetic surgery that can remove these unsightly fat deposits. Below we share with you 5 reasons why women choose liposuction.

1. Confidence boost

Liposuction can dramatically boost a woman’s confidence. It is so disheartening when a woman has managed to lose weight, only to find those stubborn areas of fat that simply won’t go away. Liposuction allows a woman to once again feel body confident, sexy and proud of her appearance.

2. Targets specific pockets of unwanted fat

Although liposuction is not a procedure to help with weight loss, it can get rid of those troublesome areas of fat, especially on the stomach, upper arms, thighs and buttocks. The beauty of liposuction is that it can target a specific area, or multiple areas, on a woman’s body, after dramatic weight loss.

3. Alters body shape safely

A woman can dramatically reshape her body and create a more toned and sculpted figure. If you are already at your ideal weight, then liposuction allows you to get rid of this unwanted fat in a safe manner. Many women choose to have liposuction on the tummy area, especially for the long summer months and bikini wearing weather.

4. Health is improved

It is proven that liposuction can improve a woman’s health. This is due to the reduction of triglycerides (fat cells) that circulate in the blood. An increase in these fat cells can lead to stroke and heart disease. A woman’s mental health is also improved as they feel more confident about their body, resulting in increased well-being and positive mental health.

5. Increase in collagen

Liposuction can stimulate the production of collagen, which is responsible for making the skin appear firm while reducing wrinkles. Natural collagen production slows down as we age. This is the reason why skin becomes saggy, with the formation of wrinkles and fine lines appearing on the skin. Sadly, collagen production is only stimulated via laser liposuction.

IF YOU’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT UNDERGOING LIPOSUCTION AND WANT TO SPEAK TO AN EXPERT ABOUT GETTING RID OF STUBBORN THROUGH SURGERY, THEN CONTACT THE BELVEDERE CLINIC TODAY.
