Is plastic surgery responsible for people quitting smoking?

It’s now estimated that around 15% of people smoke in the UK. This figure, of course, has fallen rapidly over the years thanks to measures such as the smoking ban and the increased taxation on cigarettes. But could it be that there’s another reason why more and more people are choosing to quit?

plastic-surgery-responsible for quitting smoking

A new study has found that cosmetic surgery is one of the driving forces behind people giving up cigarettes.

The research – carried out by the University of British Columbia in Vancouver – found that 40% of patients who had undergone cosmetic surgery no longer smoked on a daily basis following the procedure. Meanwhile, 70% of those surveyed admitted to cutting down on smoking following pre and post-surgery consultations with their doctor.

It’s not unusual for patients to be asked to refrain from smoking both before and after undergoing cosmetic surgery. This is because the use of cigarettes can slow down a person’s immune system and restrict the flow of blood in their blood vessels – both of which can lead to delayed or compromised recovery following an operation. In particular, continuing smoking can be extremely detrimental for those who have tummy tucks, facelifts or breast lifts (amongst other procedures).

Dr Aaron Van Slyke – a lead author in the study – was personally unsurprised by the results of the research. Instead, he felt the survey just further outlined how much people are interested in improving their lifestyle when they decide to go under the knife.

Reflecting on the results, he commented: “This is consistent with previous research showing patients who seek to obtain cosmetic surgery are more motivated to sustain positive lifestyle changes.” He added: “The dialogue between plastic surgeon and patient during the cosmetic surgery consultation serves as a unique moment to provide targeted smoking cessation counselling that may persist well beyond the surgical interaction.”

Plastic surgery can change your life

While it’s promising that research shows plastic surgery can help patients quit smoking, there are numerous other benefits associated with going under the knife and improving your appearance – such as increased self-confidence.

Rebekah Vardy reveals boob job plans during I’m A Celeb

Rebekah Vardy was watched by millions of people on a nightly basis after her appearance on this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.


Between Bushtucker Trials and scantily-clad showers, the WAG has been telling her fellow campmates how she plans to go under the knife when the show is over and done with. In particular, she’s set her sights on a second boob job. During a recent episode on ITV, Rebekah told her fellow campmates: “I am going to get them redone in January next year. Amazing.”

The public revelation shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to those who know a bit about Rebekah. After all, the 35-year-old has previously admitted to having a breast enhancement as well as Botox. When quizzed about having cosmetic surgery during an interview with Mail Online in 2016, the footballer’s wife said: “I’ve had a boob job, too. I can’t bear it when women lie about this stuff. I go in the sun and I’ve hardly got any wrinkles. It’s not nature, it’s Botox.”

Rebekah won’t be the first person to have cosmetic surgery after leaving the Jungle. Last year’s winner Scarlett Moffatt has previously had lip fillers and Botox. Scarlett has also refused to rule out a breast reduction should she decide one is necessary in the future. Earlier this year, she told Heat magazine: “They’re a G-cup now, and I’d love them to be a D-cup. I definitely think I’ll do it in the next couple of years, but I would like to try to lose a bit of weight first, to see if they go down naturally.”

Meanwhile, 2015’s victor Vicky Pattison also had a boob job just like Rebekah. Speaking about the decision before joining the show, Geordie Shore star Vicky told Now! magazine: “I thought about the boobs for 10 months.” She added: “It was the only option for me to be body confident, and I’m pleased I did it.”

Are you inspired?

Although Rebekah won’t be this year’s Queen of the Jungle after her elimination from the show, it seems a foregone conclusion that she’ll be treating herself to a boob job. If you’re inspired to follow in her footsteps – or if you fancy any other procedure – get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic for information.

Strictly sensation Anton Du Beke ‘feels 25 again’ after hair transplant

Strictly Come Dancing routinely pulls in more than 10million viewers an episode on BBC One – and many of those people who tune in do so to watch Anton Du Beke.

The professional dancer has been a staple of the show since it began in 2014 and over the years he’s been teamed with the likes of Nancy Dell’Olio, Patsy Palmer and most recently Ruth Langsford. Now a household name in his own right, the 51-year-old has turned to cosmetic surgery to ensure that he’s got a faultless appearance when on television.

anton-hair-before-and-afterIn a recent interview with the Mirror, Anton confessed that he’s just spent £10,000 on a hair transplant. This procedure, he’s happy to tell the world, has made him feel like a man half his age. He told the paper: “I think the one big thing for men is their hair. Women have all their things… But men have hair. I was looking at photos and images of myself on television and saw it was going a bit thin at the front. I’d cover it with make-up and make sure I didn’t stand under certain lights. Basically, I didn’t like it very much.” He added: “I feel 25 again. It’s given me so much more confidence when appearing on television or having my picture taken.”

Anton isn’t the only famous face to overhaul their appearance since the beginning of Strictly Come Dancing. Instead, it seems almost everyone – from judges and presenters to contestants and professionals – have previously gone under the knife or have said that they are considering it. For instance, long time judge Craig Revel Horwood has been very open about having previously had a nose job, while Bruno Tonioli has said he would have plastic surgery if the circumstances were right. In 2015, he told Mail Online: “I probably would, if and when the time comes.”

Cosmetic surgery is for everyone

You don’t need to have millions of viewers hanging on your every dance move to undergo plastic surgery. In fact, you don’t even need to be on television! Cosmetic surgery is for everyone and you can start your journey to perfection by getting in touch with Belvedere.

Why do people get plastic surgery? The answer has been revealed

Plastic surgery appeals to different people for a whole variety of reasons.


This can be anything – from wanting to improve their career prospects to simply wanting to try something new. However, a new survey has pinpointed the main reason why patients decide to undergo a cosmetic procedure.

The answer? One word: confidence. According to research carried out by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery – who offer everything from liposuction to hair transplants – patients are most interested in boosting their self-esteem when they go under the knife.

While the majority of those quizzed revealed that they first considered a form of cosmetic treatment to ‘feel more confident’, others also confessed that they were urged to improve their appearance to ‘feel more attractive’ and to ‘look as young as I feel or better for my age’. Mirroring similar surveys carried out around the globe, the research also confirmed that more people than ever before are open to the idea of cosmetic surgery in 2017. In fact, seven out of 10 people are now interested in a procedure – twice as many as in 2013.

The results, while eye-opening, might not come as that much of a surprise to those people who closely follow pop culture. After all, numerous celebrities have previously admitted to going under the knife with the intention of experiencing a new level of confidence. Just take Kaley Cuoco as an example. The Big Bang Theory star has gone under the knife on multiple occasions – having had everything from a boob job to lines removed from her neck.

Just last year the actress stood up for herself and declared the work had done wonders for her self-esteem. In a candid interview, she proudly told Women’s Health: “I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.”

It’s time to boost your confidence!

You can expect to feel much better about yourself after undergoing plastic surgery. This newfound confidence will hopefully improve both your personal and professional life. For more information on a procedure that will boost your self-esteem, get in touch with the Belvedere and explore your options.

Botox fan Elaine Paige won’t rule out more cosmetic surgery

There aren’t many people as revered in their industry as Elaine Paige.

Elaine Paige Annie Skates

The singer has seemingly done it all in her career – from topping the charts to performing on Broadway and the West End. While Elaine’s voice is music to people’s ears, it must be said that her face is still rather easy on people’s eyes, even at the age of 68. This, she will proudly admit, is partly due to the results of Botox.

Elaine has said she relies on the wrinkle-removing procedure in the past, and she has recently confirmed once again that it’s been the solution to eliminating the lines around her eyes and has shaved the years off her appearance. In a new interview with the Daily Post, she said: “Have I had any work done? Well, that’s a very personal question! But, no, I get a few lines around my eyes so the closest thing to work I get is Botox once in a while.”

While Elaine’s not previously gone under the knife, she certainly won’t rule out the possibility. In fact, she’s explained that she can foresee a time when plastic surgery will be the solution to maintaining her youth. She added: “There will come a time when I’ll notice enough to decide whether I’m going to need to get something more drastic done. But I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.”

The West End star has previously made similar comments, even going so far as to pinpoint a necklift as a procedure that she’s been eyeing up. Earlier this year, she told the Mirror: “I’m tempted as it’s all falling down. I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat, so I’m not sure if I’ll go through with it, but if I suddenly look 10 years younger, you’ll know I have.”

You have options, too

It would seem that Elaine is moving closer and closer to undergoing a cosmetic procedure. Meanwhile, there’s no need to put off your choice of procedure if you’ve already made up your mind about which one is for you. For more information about cosmetic surgery, get in touch with the Belvedere today.

It’s a fact – plastic surgeons undergo cosmetic work too!

It would seem that nobody can accuse plastic surgeons of not practising what they preach.

It's a fact - plastic surgeons undergo cosmetic work too!

After all, the medical professionals – many of whom advise on and conduct hundreds of cosmetic procedures throughout the year – are no strangers to going under the knife themselves.

In fact, a rather large percentage of surgeons have enhanced their own appearance as well as that of their many patients. This is great news for those people who are considering cosmetic work but are worried that they won’t be in safe hands, because, as it turns out, their surgeon has probably been in their very shoes!

The American College of Healthcare Executives has carried out a rather interesting piece of research into plastic surgeons. It found that out of the 276 plastic surgeons involved in the survey, one-third of them had previously enjoyed at least one type of cosmetic procedure during their career. Much like many of their patients, they have been particularly interested in cutting down on extra weight. As a result, liposuction is the most common operation they’ve opted for with 18.6% trying it at some point. This will no doubt come as a relief to patients who are looking at having a similar operation to achieve their dream body.

Meanwhile, a higher percentage of surgeons have undergone less invasive procedures to improve their appearance. The research concluded that a hefty 62% have been the recipient of ‘minimally invasive work’. The most common was Botox, in an effort to shave a few years off their face to remain looking youthful.

There’s a growing trend where more and more men are deciding to improve their appearance with cosmetic procedures. This research also found that male surgeons are a firm part of this movement because 57% have enjoyed the benefits of minimally invasive surgery. This includes work such as lip fillers and hyperhidrosis.

You’re in safe hands!

You can rest assured that plastic surgeons don’t just conduct cosmetic procedures – they count on them too! Therefore, you’re clearly in safe hands when it comes to going under the knife. For more information on finding the right procedure for you, get in touch with us at the Belvedere.

Can cosmetic surgery improve your job prospects? Brits think so!

There are many amazing benefits linked to undergoing plastic surgery.

For instance, there’s the likelihood that a procedure – such as liposuction or a nose job – can boost a person’s self-esteem and help them achieve new levels of confidence. However, it would seem that a lot of people now believe that the advantages stretch much further than someone’s personal life.

Can cosmetic surgery improve your job prospects? Brits think so!

Beauty bias in the workplace

According to a survey conducted by the Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, 20% of people who consider going under the knife believe that it will improve their job prospects. The research found that a massive 72% think that there is ‘beauty bias’ in the workplace, while 28% of those surveyed feel that their good looks play a factor in them being treated more positively at work.

The 2017 report echoes similar findings from the past decade. In 2011 – just a few short years after the global financial crisis – Sky television aired a show called My Face My Body. This broadcast determined that 57% of men had begun to turn to procedures such as lip fillers and Botox in order to gain an advantage over others in the job market. At the time, presenter Stephen Handisides interviewed Dr Bob Khanna, who said: “Men are even happy talking about it. In this difficult economic climate people will look to get that extra edge on colleagues and a cosmetic treatment can give you that.”

Cosmetic surgery is becoming more widely accepted

This trend towards people desiring to look young and beautiful for work isn’t actually anything new. While it’s clearly becoming more widely accepted in the general public, actors and actresses have actually been having work done for years in order to gain roles and maintain their standing in Hollywood. In fact, in 2015, soap star Claire King admitted that she had a facelift to stay in favour with casting directors. After the operation, she told Closer magazine: “I’ve been working pretty much non-stop ever since.”

Will cosmetic surgery help you?

People undergo cosmetic work for numerous reasons – and you don’t need to explain your reasons to anyone else should you not want to. Once you’ve got an idea of what procedure you want, you can get all the information you need by getting in touch with the Belvedere Clinic.

‘Menjections’ How lip plumping for men is on the rise

It appears that it may not be just women looking for a fuller pout, as cosmetic surgeons reveal that more and more men are opting for lip filler procedures. And the trend is increasing.

'Menjections' How lip plumping surgery for men is on the rise

While lip injections are no doubt predominantly requested by women, a huge rise has been noticed in the number of men choosing restoration surgery in order to appear more like their favourite celebrities, such as Harry Styles, Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt.

You only have to look as far as the numbers. During 2016, men who had requested cosmetic surgery had risen by three per cent compared to the previous year. Since 2005 there has been a staggering rise of 28 per cent.

That’s not including minimally-invasive procedures such as lip ‘menjections’ – this has shot up 74 per cent from 2015 to 2016. But what could be the reason behind these unprecedented rises?

A natural smirk

In a Daily Mail report, Miami plastic surgeon Dr Rian Maercks offered his two cents on these surprising statistics, going on to state that men may be flocking to get this type of surgery in order to get a natural smirk and a ‘proud’ lower lip.

A selfie culture

According to Dr Maercks, a narcissistic selfie culture may also be to blame for this dramatic rise: “Social media, dating apps, selfie culture… that culture has a big part of it. Even our politicians embody and celebrate narcissism – we have never been more encouraged to analyse our facial features.”

Within just a few months, ‘menjections’ became one of the most sought-after procedures in his clinic, going from just a handful of men a week to approximately five per day.

The procedure typically involves a plumping of the lower lip and a tweak of the base of a man’s nose, utilising fillers such as collagen or Juvederm, and requiring around four shots per customer.

In the age of social media and the selfie, it’s easy to see why more and more men are opting for the surgery. Time will tell whether it will become a common trend or a passing fad.

Sharon Osbourne’s attitude towards cosmetic surgery is infectious

Sharon Osbourne's attitude towards cosmetic surgery is infectiousSharon Osbourne has never been one to keep hush when it comes to her history of plastic surgery.

Now, the X Factor judge – who’s undergone numerous cosmetic procedures during her career – has insisted that every one of the operations was done to benefit herself and herself only. When quizzed about whether she was urged to alter her appearance to attract male attention, she told Event magazine: “I do this for myself. I spent years looking like an Oompa Loompa. I am not doing it to get a man.”

In the past, Sharon has confessed to undergoing a facelift, a breast reduction and a tummy tuck – amongst many other procedures. In fact, she once jokingly told The Sun: “There’s not much I haven’t had tweaked, stretched, peeled, lasered, veneered, enhanced or removed altogether.”

It would seem that Sharon’s attitude towards cosmetic surgery is infectious. After all, husband Ozzy Osbourne has also been under the knife because he was unhappy with his face. In 2005, he told Reveal: “It boosted my confidence no end. I’ve had a face job and a new nose.”

The rocker later promoted cosmetic surgery during an interview with Glamour magazine. He explained: “My philosophy is that if, when you look in the mirror, all you can see is the double chin or the big nose, and it makes your life easier to have them cut off, do it.”

Now, Grace Davies – one of Sharon’s acts on X Factor – looks to have taken inspiration from her mentor. Nearing closer and closer to a record deal, the talent show star is already weighing up the positives of pumping up her pout and mending some damage caused by anaemia. Last month, Grace told OK! magazine:“I would get lip fillers and I would definitely get a hair transplant. I had anemia and was really stressed at college and lost my eyebrows, eyelashes and some of my hair, which hasn’t grown back in places.”

Have Sharon’s words hit home?

If like Sharon you’re ready to make a change, then there’s no better person to do it for than yourself. For information on finding a procedure that’s perfect for you, get in touch with Belvedere Clinic .

Kim Kardashian’s cosmetic surgeries

Kim Kardashian's cosmetic surgeriesKnown as one of the world’s most beautiful women and a hugely successful business woman – Kim Kardashian

has been open throughout her career in the spotlight about her plastic surgeries and the cosmetic procedures she’s undergone to enhance her look. With a life lived constantly in the spotlight, it’s no surprise she’s spent so much time and money investing in her physical appearance, with stunning results.

Below we’ve looked at her cosmetic surgeries from the last decade.

That bum

Kim Kardashian’s bum is the stuff of legend, inspiring people the world over to take to the gym, squatting huge weights, or opting for cosmetic procedures to achieve an incredible curve to their buttocks. In Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kim went as far as having an x ray to prove she’d never had a butt implants, but with other cosmetic procedures, including fat transfer deposits or just a simple thigh and buttock lift, available, the chances are she enhanced her natural figure using other cosmetic enhancements. The shape and size of her buttocks have grown considerably throughout her career and been a constant source of fascination from the media, suggesting it’s been well worth her investment.


Whilst Kim puts her new nose shape down to expert contouring, it’s hughly likely she’s undergone a rhinoplasty. Looking at it with an expert opinion, it appears she’s had the bridge of her nose straightened out and slimmed down – a procedure known as a septo rhinoplasty. She’s also had an alar base reduction, which defines the tip of her nose. Whilst she works with some of the best make up artists in the world, the overall structure appears to have changed more dramatically than anything that could be achieved from make up, giving Kim a more symmetrical appearance to her face.


Kim’s dramatic weight gain and then loss with daughter North suggests she’s undergone liposuction to slim down and increase the tiny appearance of her waist. Usually, patients spend up to six weeks after the procedure avoiding physical exertion and wearing a compression garment, which would’ve been perfect timing for Kim whilst resting post birth.

If you’re interested in any of the cosmetic procedures mentioned above, contact Belvedere Clinic today.

How does tummy tuck surgery work?

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, as it’s also known, is a popular cosmetic procedure for people who carry weight that they’re unable to shift through exercise or by following a healthy diet. Often weight in these instances is generated by genetics, and surgery can be an effective method of removing fat to smooth and define the body’s contours. The surgery removes fat or loose skin and works to tighten the abdominal muscles to give the stomach a more toned look.

How-does-tummy-tuck-surgery WORK?

If you’re considering surgery or want to know more about how the tummy tuck procedure works, read on below.


Who is the tummy tuck suitable for?

The tummy tuck procedure is suitable for both men and women and is popular with women who have been left with loose, sagging skin after pregnancy, as well as people who’ve lost a lot of weight but have their loose skin remaining. If you’re planning on future pregnancies a tummy tuck is not advisable as the surgery can affect your abdominal muscles, which could cause complications for you during your pregnancy and labour.

The procedure

The surgery can take between one and five hours depending on the type of tummy tuck you’re having, from a complete abdominoplasty to a partial abdominoplasty. You will be under general anaesthetic, or ‘asleep’, for the full procedure.

After the procedure

Your post care should involve ideally an overnight stay in the facility you have the procedure, or at least arrange for someone to drive you home after your operation. You might be asked to wear a compression bandage to complete the results of your surgery. You will have pain and some swelling after the operation, but your surgeon can advise on pain relief. You will also have some scarring after the procedure, which will never completely disappear but can dissolve over time with oils and ointments.

Celebrities including Kerry Katona have undergone successful tummy tuck procedures at the Belvedere Clinic. If you want to find out more about having a tummy tuck, then contact the Belvedere today on 0208 311 4464

Facts about laser tattoo removal

For many people, laser tattoo removal is a great solution to inking that is no longer considered desirable or attractive.

As we go through different phases in our lives it’s understandable that things that were once important enough to be inked onto our bodies, no longer carry the same weight or relevance for us anymore. Laser tattoo removal is a great way to clear unwanted ink from your body, giving your skin a clear appearance once more. With almost 40 years’ experience in conducting laser tattoo removal treatments, we understand the pre and post-care treatments required to ensure you achieve your desired results.

Facts about laser tattoo removal

Below we’ve highlighted some facts about laser tattoo removal that you might not already know!

The treatment is non-invasive

Much like getting your tattoo, laser removal of your ink is a surface level, non-invasive treatment which requires no anaesthetic. For most tattoos, you need between 6-10 treatments depending on whether an amateur or professional tattoo artist completed your tattoo, and how deep into the skin the ink sits. The treatments take place over 3-6 months and are completed with fantastic results, using our cutting-edge technology.

Minimal pain and recovery

Having had a tattoo, you’ll be aware of a similar sensation on your skin which feels a little like hot fat pricking your skin. The pain is fleeting but can be sharp, hence part of the reason the treatments are spread over a series of months. You’ll be able to return to normal activity the same day as your treatment and the skin will return to normal within a couple of days.

Your skin is protected

The lasers used in the procedure emit short flashes of light which work to break down the ink in your skin. Because the lasers are so focused, you don’t need to worry about the rest of your skin being damaged, as the beams will only reach the areas of your skin which are tattooed.

If you want more information about having your tattoos removed by our laser technology, then contact the Belvedere clinic today on 0208 311 4464 or email We also offer a range of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures which could help you achieve your goals and feel your best.

Celebrities strive for the perfect pout

Celebrities strive for the perfect poutBeing a celebrity involves a lot of scrutiny under the media’s eye. Celebrities often see themselves plastered over the television, newspapers and Internet on a daily basis. For some celebrities, being constantly in the media prompts them to take the opportunity to enhance their looks.

Lip fillers are growing dramatically popular in the UK; after all, who doesn’t crave that perfect pout?

Twenty-four-year-old Megan McKenna recently had lip fillers done live on Snapchat and frequently shows off her plump pout to her Instagram followers. She has made herself a household name starring in many reality TV shows and prides herself on her immaculate appearance.

Another celebrity who has enhanced their lips to boost their self-esteem is Lateysha Grace. The MTV personality is extremely open about her surgery. She states, “I’m constantly looking at myself in the mirror and thinking, oh I want this bigger.” Lateysha is now able to flaunt her body and be confident in her own skin, regularly posting fearless body-positive photos online.

Charlotte Crosby is no stranger to getting lip fillers, and frequently jokes, “I was getting mine done way before Kylie Jenner!” Charlotte’s frequent selfies show her voluminous lips, and you can just see how confident she is in herself after being plumped up. Before, she states that she “had the thinnest top lip” but that she now “feels so much more confident.”

Another stunning starlet who praises lip fillers is Katie Price. She tells fans that she “loves them!”. Sharing the video of herself receiving injections into her pout on Loose Women, it’s clear to see that Katie hasn’t shied away from her love of surgery and regularly receives praise from fans on her attitude to enhancing herself physically.

If you’re having thoughts about getting your lips plumped up, take the opportunity to research how lip fillers will enhance your confidence and self-esteem, and get in touch with the team at the Belvedere. Lip fillers have the possibility to change your life for the better – some individuals are self-conscious about their image and require an enhanced appearance or just natural fullness in their lips. Take the plunge and get yourself a perfect pout!

So, what plastic surgery has Jane Fonda had done?

Hollywood legend Jane Fonda isn’t one to shy away from the subject of cosmetic surgery.

So, what plastic surgery has Jane Fonda had done?

However, the whole world is once again wondering exactly what the actress has had done following her recent appearance on NBC’s Today. During an interview alongside Robert Redford, Jane was quizzed by host Megyn Kelly about her history of plastic surgery.

Megyn asked: “You’ve been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully, and with strength. You’ve admitted you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit.”

To which Jane responded: “We really want to talk about that right now?”

It seemed like Jane was sending the message that she was embarrassed about her history of going under the knife. In reality, the 79-year-old doesn’t tend to shy away from discussing the work she’s had done.

Talking about the awkward interview, Jane later told Entertainment Tonight: “I have had cosmetic surgery and I’ve talked about it. But it just seemed like the wrong time and place to raise that question.”

Back in 2011, Jane revealed that she was urged to undergo work after she began to dread looking in the mirror. She told Good Housekeeping: “I didn’t think that I would want to have anything done but it actually got to the point where I would startle myself when I saw my reflection in the mirror.” She added: “I felt so great after a good night’s sleep, and suddenly I’d look at a reflection of myself and didn’t look like I felt.”

In 2015, the actress would add that all the work had ‘bought her a decade’ during an interview with The Guardian.

Jane is believed to have undergone a variety of plastic surgery during her storied movie career. In particular, many surgeons – including Miami-based Dr. Michael Salzhauer – have said it’s likely that she’s undergone multiple facelifts. Jane is also thought to have had a neck lift, a brow lift, a nose job and Botox.

Follow Jane’s lead

Whether you choose to keep hush or shout it from the rooftops, everyone is welcome to follow Jane’s lead and try plastic surgery should they fancy. For more information on which procedure might be for you, get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic.

Reality TV and the rise of plastic surgery

Reality TV and the rise of plastic surgeryReality TV and the rise of plastic surgery

Katie Price well known for plastic surgery

Getting a nose job in society these days is becoming as normal as eating a cooked dinner. Stars everywhere are striving for perfection and undergoing procedures to enhance their looks. Reality TV stars in particular, such as Charlotte Crosby, Vicky Pattinson and Ferne McCann, have all undergone rhinoplasty, breast enlargements, liposuction and body reshaping.

Stars who previously haven’t been happy with their features have opted for a change and in each case they have promoted their fantastic results.

But why have they gone to such lengths to alter their appearance?

Looking and feeling great

When talking about her surgeries, Charlotte Crosby said ‘you only live once’ and she prides herself on her plump lips and chiselled nose. Alternatively, while Ferne McCann now oozes confidence being snapped by the paparazzi, this wasn’t always the case. In an interview prior to her rhinoplasty, she broke down and said: “I was teased in school about my nose and I thought it was taking over my face.”

Sallie Axl has also dramatically transformed her appearance, showing her 117k Instagram followers her journey. She was quoted saying: “I know beauty comes from within but I know this is going to make me feel great!” Sallie has been open about her cosmetic procedures, live streaming her nose job and breast uplift from a hotel room.

Chasing the perfect pout

Lip fillers have also become extremely popular in the media, and the chase to get a perfect plump pout has competition from many stars. Megan McKenna, Katie Price, Holly Hagan and Lauren Goodger have all shown their improved pouts on social media and regularly stream their procedures on Snapchat.

While some reality TV stars opt for a more softer, less dramatic outcome, others prefer to go bigger and rounder. There’s no denying these procedures have changed these reality TV stars lives, and they don’t shy away from promoting and advertising their new cosmetically enhanced looks and style.

Greater self-esteem and confidence

Cosmetic surgery has allowed these stars to gain greater self-esteem and confidence about their bodies. Not only do they feel like they have improved their physical looks, but they promote a positive self-image and inform individuals that if you want surgery you should just go for it!

Celebrities who have openly talked about their nose jobs

Rhinoplasty has hit the headlines lately, with Essex favourites Ferne McCann and James Argent both revealing the results of their nose jobs over the past year.

They’re not the only celebrities who have had rhinoplasty either. Below, we take a look at some of the famous faces that have talked openly about their nose jobs.

elebrities who have openly talked about their nose jobs

Bobby Norris – The TOWIE star is the latest celebrity to have rhinoplasty, after flying to Turkey for the procedure. He recently took to social media to post a picture of his bandaged face following the treatment.

Iggy Azalea – The popular star is well known for her catchy music and collaborations with the likes of Rita Ora and Charlie XCX. She is also known for being upfront about cosmetic surgery. She has openly discussed her nose job, as well as the jaw alteration and boob job she had at the same time.

Ashley Tisdale – The High School Musical actress is another one who cites health reasons for her cosmetic surgery. Ashley said that she was hyperventilating and struggling to breathe through her nose due to a deviated septum, and so she had a nose op in 2007.

Rebecca Adlington – The retired Olympic swimmer was openly unhappy with her appearance, after years of receiving cruel taunts about the way she looked. At the age of 27, she had her nose reduced and a bump removed.

Lauren Pope – DJ, fashionista, and TOWIE star, Lauren Pope, had his ‘n’ hers nose jobs with her then-boyfriend, Kirk Norcross, in 2011. Lauren said that she was really happy with how the surgery went.

Chloe Madeley – Chloe Madeley, the daughter of TV presenter couple Richard and Judy, is probably best known for being a fitness fanatic. However, last year she revealed that she had “finally fixed” her “wonky” nose, as she put it.

Charlotte Crosby – Last but not least, we have ex-Geordie Shore star, Charlotte Crosby. The reality TV favourite had surgery to straighten out the arch in her nose, as she never felt sexy and confident. Charlotte said that it was something she always wanted and, before the surgery, she would lock herself in her dressing room and cry while on photo-shoots. No more tears Charlotte!

Facts about arm lift surgery

Facts-on-Arm-lift-surgeryIf you have excessive skin on the underneath of your arms it can leave you feeling uncomfortable, self-conscious and affect your confidence when wearing certain items.

Many people find that even with a healthy lifestyle this loose skin can show as skin loses its elasticity through ageing. Loose underarm skin can also be caused by weight loss, leaving skin looking baggy and stretched.

The good news is there’s a simple, straightforward procedure which can be undertaken to help remove an excess of loose skin – it’s a process called brachioplasty.

Below we’ve highlighted some key facts about undergoing arm lift surgery.

What can the procedure help with?

Brachioplasty surgery helps to get rid of excess skin underneath the arm which sags, often between the elbow and the armpit. It’s used to treat both men and women who suffer from loose skin under the arms.

How does the procedure work?

During the procedure, you’ll be under anaesthetic and the surgeon will work to remove fat from the inner back area of your arm. This could also include some elliptical skin from the very top of the arm near the armpit if there is a lot of loose skin there too.


The usual recovery time for the procedure is a few days of rest before you can resume lightweight activity. The procedure itself lasts for 2-3 hours, depending on the amount of skin to be removed, and you will be given a compression bandage after your operation to minimise swelling to the area. It generally takes between 3 and 4 weeks before you’re able to resume all activity including strenuous lifting to give your arms a full chance to recover and heal.

There can be scarring left after the procedure, but it is kept to a minimum by a trained surgeon performing the operation. If you’re interested in speaking to one of our expert staff about undergoing an operation to lift the skin around your arm area, then contact us today on 020 8311 4464.

Geordie Shore stars’ cosmetic transformations

Many celebrities have undergone plastic surgery, enhancing their looks so that they always look their best wherever the paparazzi cameras follow them.

Below we take a look at some of the cosmetic procedures the show’s stars have undergone, to update their looks.

Marnie Simpson

Marnie, one of the shows newer stars, has undergone several cosmetic procedures to enhance her already stunning natural looks. She’s had two breast enlargement surgeries and multiple lip filler injections to give her pout a plumper look.

Chloe Ferry

Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry has undergone multiple updates to her look, including Botox to smooth out the lines on her forehead, lip filler injections to give a fuller pout and dermal cheek fillers to balance out the shape of her face. She’s also undergone veneer treatment to her teeth, making multiple changes to her face whilst showing off her exercise and diet plan to help her shed weight on her social media channels.

Charlotte Crosby

One of the original members of the Geordie Shore crew, Charlotte has also become famous outside of the show for her weight loss and exercise DVDs. She’s more recently undergone cosmetic procedures to smooth out the shape of her nose using rhinoplasty surgery, and has botox on her forehead and lip fillers, like the rest of her female cast mates.

Holly Hagan

Holly’s also undergone a number of facial cosmetic procedures including veneers for her teeth, lip fillers and botox to give a more youthful appearance to her skin.

Five celebs who’ve shared their plastic surgery stories

Although social media is often accused of creating an unrealistic image of what life is really like, there’s also an argument to be made that it has led to increasing transparency, especially amongst celebrities, who share even the minutiae of their days with their thousands of online followers.

Perhaps this is partially responsible for the increasing wave of men and women in the public eye who have been happy to open up about the cosmetic procedures they’ve undergone.

If you’re curious, here are just a few of the celebs who’ve recently shared their surgery stories…

Five celebs who’ve shared their plastic surgery stories#1: Kylie Jenner

Following months of speculation on the topic, Kylie Jenner made her big reveal on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, when she confessed to the cameras that: “I have temporary lip fillers. It’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do.”

#2: Ashley Tisdale

High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale is another celebrity who’s been open about admitting to having surgery. Undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure in 2007, she claimed a deviated septum that affected her breathing had been primarily responsible for her decision.

#3: Kourtney Kardashian

Kylie Jenner is not the only member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan to have signed up for plastic surgery. Older sister Kourtney has also been open about undergoing cosmetic procedures to improve her appearance, after having a breast enlargement aged 21.

#4: Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea has admitted to having not just one procedure performed, but two: a rhinoplasty and a breast enlargement. Speaking of the latter, she said: “I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I’ve spoken about the changes I’ve made, like with my breasts.”

#5: Britney Spears

Famous for her enduring career in pop, Britney Spears is another big name who’s been open about having a hand from the professionals. Stating in an interview that she has trialled both lip fillers and other procedures, she singer said: “A doctor I see [reputedly Beverley Hills surgeon Dr Raji Kanodia] does fun stuff to me sometimes – I’ve had lip injections before.”

It’s clear that plastic surgery is spoken about much more among celebs. If you’re contemplating going under the knife, can find the procedure that’s right for you by getting in touch with the Belvedere Clinic or more information.

TOWIE’s James ‘Arg’ Argent shows off new nose after rhinoplasty

TOWIE favourite James ‘Arg’ Argent is happily flaunting his new nose.


The reality star – a staple of the ITV show since 2010 – recently splashed out £6,500 on a nose job because he was unhappy with his appearance.

He’s now sporting a huge smile across his face on new pictures posted to social media.

Prior to the operation, Arg revealed that the procedure was planned to remove a bump from his nose and reduce the size of his nostrils. The 29-year-old explained that he made the decision after his incredible four-stone weight loss. He said: “I’ve always known I’ve had a big nose, but where I’ve been so up and down with my weight for so many years, my nose didn’t stand out as much, but now I’ve lost four stone my features show a lot more and I’ve got this large bump and nostrils that are even more prominent.”

Arg added: “I think if I have the bump removed and the nostrils made smaller it will make me feel a lot more confident and be another step into helping me better myself since leaving rehab – and I’m not gonna lie, better looking and more attractive.”

Arg isn’t the only TOWIE star to treat himself to a nose job. In the past, both Ferne McCann and Mario Falcone have undergone the procedure and been thrilled with the results. Last month, fellow cast member Yazmin Oukhellou also had a nose job before revealing the results on Instagram.

The reality beauty wrote: “It has only been 2 weeks and I can already see the results are going to be amazing. I had a previous broken nose and deviated septum so surgery was the only option for me. I am so glad I did it as I was nervous at first but so happy that I can now breathe properly and that the small bump has gone.”

Is a nose job for you?

TOWIE stars aren’t the only ones who are allowed to have cosmetic surgery. If you want to follow in the footsteps of Arg and Yazmin with Rhinoplasty, be sure to get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic for more information about your chosen procedure.

Did you know this about rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is the cosmetic procedure involved in altering the appearance of the nose and is often referred to as a nose job.

Did-you-Know-about-Rhinoplasty ?

Depending on the results the patient is looking for from their surgery, the surgeon will generally look to alter the shape of the nose of the bridge, which may be bent or have a bump in it, the tip or the nostrils.

Because the nose is the centre point of the face, the procedure can vastly improve a patient’s confidence once the surgery and recovery are complete, as not only the shape of the nose but the appearance of the whole face will change too. Although rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures you can undergo, there are some facts about it you might not already know – read on below to find out more!

The procedure is as old as time

There are records of rhinoplasty surgery taking place from over 2,500 years ago, with techniques much like the ones used today. The reasons for the surgery have changed somewhat though, with a medical book from India discussing the surgery to help patients whose noses had been damaged in battle. The book and its procedures were then brought to England in the 18th century, and the rest, as they say – is history!

Why ‘plastic’ surgery?

One commonly asked question is why the procedures are referred to as plastic surgery when no instance of plastic is used in the surgery. The term was coined before modern plastic materials were developed and actually refers to the Greek word ‘plastikos’ and the Latin word ‘plasticus’ which when translated actually means to hold or shape, which is a perfect description of the procedures.

Why have rhinoplasty

Whilst rhinoplasty procedures are often carried out for cosmetic reasons, many people use the surgery as an opportunity to alter defects caused at birth, by accidents or illness.

A nose job, or rhinoplasty procedure, is a tried and tested cosmetic procedure that has given patients all over the world confidence-boosting results.

Fearne McCann is the latest star delighted with their new nose

As we’ve seen time and time again, cosmetic surgery has the ability to revolutionise a person’s confidence and self-esteem.


Whether it’s a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck or liposuction, there’s been no shortage of stars who’ve come out and said that their chosen nip or tuck has done them the world of good. When it comes to facial surgery, though, surely the procedure that elicits the most positive emotional responses from clients themselves is rhinoplasty.

Many people spend their lives tolerating a nose which they feel is too big and dominates their entire face or is an unflattering shape, especially in side profile, and over time this can come to define them. So, following a rhinoplasty, many stars seem to feel an overwhelming urge to share their new confidence and happiness with the world.

One such star is The Only Way is Essex cast member Fearne McCann, who revealed her new nose in August, live on This Morning. The star, who also presents segments on the morning TV show, explained during her interview that she had been teased at school about her nose and that she began to feel that it was ‘taking over her face’, stating that it was all she could see in the mirror. Despite this, Fern was adamant that she didn’t want the rhinoplasty surgery to change her entire look. This led the I’m a Celebrity star to request that her surgeon make the change to her nose subtle, and ask that they simply concentrate on removing the bump on the bridge of her nose. Nonetheless, the effect on Fern’s confidence has been massive, as she said that previously, despite appearing confident, on the inside her dislike of her nose ‘really fazed her’.

This feeling will be familiar to Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, who after debuting her new nose last year stated that her surgeon was a miracle worker and that she was thrilled with the results. She too had been unhappy with the arch of her nose, explaining that she had never felt sexy and would often break down in tears whilst filming Geordie Shore. Yet more celebrities who’ve loved their rhinoplasty results have been Towie’s Lauren Pope and Kirk Norcross who had his ‘n’ hers nose jobs in 2012, as well as Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington, who had an overall nose reduction as well as having a bump on the bridge removed.

Which celebs have had boob jobs?

Which celebs have had boob jobs?As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available, many celebrities have undergone breast augmentation surgery

whether to enlarge, or reshape the natural shape of their breasts. The surgery is so effective, and technologies have advanced to make the results of surgery so natural looking, that there’s probably people in the list below you didn’t even know had undergone the surgery.

Read on to find out who which celebs have undergone a boob job!

Christina Aguilera

The pop superstar has never directly admitted to undergoing surgery, but throughout her career the shape of her boobs appear to have changed quite significantly. Part of this could be due to the fact her career started quite a few years ago now, but other images show what look suspiciously like breasts surgery scars under her arms.

Hayden Panettiere

The pint size actress has always had small breasts, mirroring the rest of her tiny frame, but was spotted in a bikini with a far greater curve to her chest than has previously been seen. Considering such a dramatic change in her appearance, it’s highly likely she has undergone an enlargement procedure at some point.

Sarah Jessica Parker

One celeb who’s not trying to keep her surgery a secret is Sarah Jessica Parker, who led the cast of the wildly successful TV show Sex and the city. She was very open about being born with small breasts, and embracing the opportunity to undergo breast augmentation surgery in order to increase their size.

Kelly Rowland

As one third of Destiny’s Child – Kelly is one of the most successful pop stars on the planet. She openly discussed thinking about implants from the age of 18, but waited until she was in her late twenties to finally undergo the surgery she’d wanted for so long.

Interesting facts about getting a boob job

Undergoing breast enlargement surgery or a ‘boob job’, as it’s often known, is one of the most popular and routine forms of plastic surgery.

Interesting facts about getting a boob job

Many people opt to undergo the surgery to increase the size or reshape the appearance of their breasts, with many finding the results of their surgery greatly enhance their confidence and self-esteem after.

With so many celebrities having undergone the procedure and possibly even family or friends, you might think you know everything there is to know about the procedure. Below we’ve listed some interesting – and relatively unknown – facts about getting a boob job so that you have everything you need in mind when making the decision to undergo surgery.

Your first may not be your last

Your first breast enhancement surgery very likely won’t be your last. Depending on the age you undergo the procedure and your reasons for surgery, you could be in the 25% of people who need to undergo a further surgery in 10 years. This is simply because breast implants don’t last forever, and not having the surgery redone could cause serious medical issues. You may develop scar tissue around the surgery which changes the shape of your breasts, requiring further surgery. Other factors, including weight loss, pregnancy or simply a preference change between your first surgery and your current life status, could see you looking to change your look through another procedure.

Recovery might not be as long as you think!

Usually, you can return to non-manual work within 5-7 days after your surgery, but you should always follow the lead of how you feel and your GP’s advice before you go back. If, however, you’ve chosen to opt for the implant behind the muscle instead of on top, it can take a little longer for recovery. This procedure is usually opted for as there is less chance of a situation called a ‘scar shell’ forming around the implant, which can cause complications down the line.

Try before you buy!

You can decide which size you’d like your breast implants to be by trying ‘sizers’ stuffed into your bra to see how the shape will look. These are usually a bead-filled neoprene sack, which helps to give an idea of how your chest will look after surgery. Or if you choose the Belvedere Clinic they currently have a 3D SIMULATION PLATFORM FOR OUR BREAST SURGERY CUSTOMERS — WITH IMMERSIVE VISUALISATION, this is offered as standard with your free consultation

Lauren Goodger reveals she’s considering liposuction

TOWIE babe Lauren Goodger has revealed that she is contemplating having liposuction.


The reality star – once famed for her doomed relationship with Mark Wright – has reinvented herself in recent years as a weight-loss goddess.

However, it appears that Lauren is struggling to keep the pounds off through just diet and exercise alone. So much so that the 30-year-old is now considering plastic surgery to help her slim down once and for all.

In a new interview, Lauren told Closer magazine: “I fell off the wagon and I’ve put the weight back on [after releasing my fitness DVD]. I reckon I’m a size 12 now and I’m scared I might get bigger. I don’t know what else to do. Go back to the gym, diet and hate my life? I’ve spoken to friends about liposuction or a gastric band.”

She added: “I’d do anything like that if it meant I saw results fast. I’m sick of yo-yoing. I’ve tried everything else so surgery seems like the right option.”

Of course, it wouldn’t be the first time that Lauren has gone under the knife. The starlet has previously undergone a number of procedures, including lip fillers (which she kept for five years) and a rumoured bum lift. In 2004, she also revealed that she’d had a boob job to go from a 34D to a 34E. On that occasion, she also claimed that she was inspired to undergo the operation because of her fluctuating size.

She told new! magazine: “I’ve always had big boobs and where I’ve done extreme yo-yo dieting, exercise and then not doing anything at all, I felt like my chest had lost a bit of volume on the top. They’re very similar to my old boobs but they’ve got more volume rather than them flopping down a bit.”

Are you unhappy your figure?

Lauren is proof that you don’t have to suffer in silence if you’re unhappy with your figure. Instead, you can overhaul your image with the help of cosmetic surgery. Whether you fancy an operation like liposuction or a Breast Enlargement, you should get in touch with Belvedere to explore your options.

Three things you probably didn’t know about liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market,


Even though the procedure is so popular there are several facts about liposuction you probably didn’t know. Read on below to find out what they are!

The Liposuction procedure helps people who are trying to lose weight with a quick, effective solution to their goals, giving the body a slimmer, more toned appearance using a process of ‘sucking’ fat from the body, usually from areas including the neck, chin, backs of the upper arms, stomach, buttocks and thighs.

Both plastic surgeons and dermatologists perform liposuction

Your procedure is likely to be carried out by either a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist. The plastic surgeon will specialise in aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries, whilst the dermatologist will treat any skin conditions you may have prior to or post surgery.

It isn’t for obese people

There’s a common misconception that a liposuction procedure is only suitable for people who are severely overweight or obese, but this isn’t the case. The treatment does focus on fat removal, but it isn’t a treatment for obesity or weight loss. The best results from liposuction are usually achieved by people who are around 30% of their ideal body weight. The procedure will remove fat which has not responded to improved diet or exercise – but to maintain the results, these areas must be focused on post surgery. Fat that doesn’t respond to regular exercise or a healthy diet is likely to be more genetically based than as a result of your lifestyle.

Lasers are used to help break down fat

Newer methods of liposuction include the use of ultrasound or lasers which help to liquefy the fat stored in the body, making it easier to break down and remove. These techniques also help to minimise bruising and swelling caused by the treatment and can also help to speed up recovery. By using lasers during liposuction, it can also increase the amount of areas of built up fat that can be treated during a single session.

If you’re interested in undergoing a liposuction procedure and want more information, contact Belvedere Clinic today on 0208 311 4464 or click here ( to book a free consultation.

Millennial men ‘extremely likely’ to consider cosmetic surgery

A new report has found that a high percentage of millennial men are ‘extremely likely’ to consider cosmetic surgery.

Millennial men ‘extremely likely’ to consider cosmetic surgery

The research, conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, surveyed 618 men about their desire to change their appearance. In total, 31% said that they would be ‘extremely likely’ to consider a procedure in future – with the majority of these affirmative answers (92%) coming from those who fell into the category of millennials.

Of those people who confessed that they were open to going under the knife, the report also questioned their motivation for wanting to achieve the perfect appearance. It was found that the primary reasons for change stemmed from social media and a growing interest in celebrity culture.

What procedures are men considering?

The research found that the most popular procedures that men were undergoing included facelifts, nose jobs and hair transplants. In fact, 60% of non-millennials claimed that losing their hair was the number one trend that they would like to reverse. However, it would seem that the younger generation are still interested in this treatment, too.

Celeb role models

This month, X Factor star Jake Quickenden revealed that he had undergone a hair transplant. Speaking on Loose Women, the television personality, 28, said that he chose the procedure to boost his self-esteem ahead of marrying girlfriend Danielle Fogarty. Jake explained: “I didn’t want to walk down the aisle feeling less confident so one of the main reasons was so I could feel as confident as she can.”

He continued: “I think it will change how I feel. It was not an issue about saying it was done. You are always going to get someone saying something bad – I can’t care. It’s about sorting it out for myself. It is a big deal for many men and the amount of comments from guys saying thanks for being so open about – well, if it’s helped in that way it’s great.”

Are you considering having work done?

It’s clear that plastic surgery is becoming a much more popular option for men. If you’re contemplating going under the knife, can find the procedure that’s right for you by getting in touch with the Belvedere Clinic or more information.

Has John Travolta had plastic surgery?

John Travolta is one of Hollywood’s best-loved actors with a career that’s spanned many of the most famous films including Grease and Saturday Night Fever.


His changing appearance hasn’t gone unnoticed and in his more recent performance in The People vs OJ Simpson, Travolta appeared to have had a number of cosmetic procedures.

Below we take a look at the very different look the actor has been sporting recently and the likely procedures that have altered it.

Aside from his perma-tan in the show, Travolta had also clearly had a weave in his hair giving his locks a thicker, full-colour look. For 62 years old, his forehead also appeared extremely smooth, suggesting the actor had undergone a series of Botox treatments, to work out any lines caused my frowning and ageing.

The area under his eyes also appears to have been smoothed out suggesting he’s had a blepharoplasty in the last few years. Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that aims to correct defects around the eyelids, including deformities, colouration defects and lines to balance out the aesthetic of the eye region, giving a more youthful look.

During the show, the lines around his mouth also appeared to have reduced, which would suggest he’d used Dermal filler injections to smooth over the wrinkles that naturally develop with age.

It could be that the actor underwent the cosmetic procedures he did to take on the look of Robert Shapiro, the lawyer Travolta was playing in the show. The thick-set brow bone and bushy eyebrows Travolta sported during the TV show were highly reminiscent of the lawyer’s actual look and facial shape.

For someone aged 62, Travolta has maintained his youthful look exceptionally well over the years helping him retain his heartthrob status.

If you’re interested in undergoing any of the procedures mentioned above to reduce the impact of ageing on your face, contact the Belvedere clinic today. With over 30 years of expertise in the cosmetic surgery field, you will feel confident you’re being cared for by specialists who can help you achieve your goals through cosmetic procedures.

3 interesting facts about the tummy tuck

Tummy tucks are an ideal way to get rid of any excess fat that cannot be removed by dieting or exercising.

3 interesting facts about the tummy tuck

In most cases, the procedure aims to tighten the muscles and give you a toned core to give you the silhouette you have always dreamed of. If you are interested in learning more about the tummy tuck, here are three interesting facts you may never have realised about the procedure:

1. It was first developed over 100 years ago

Whilst many presume that the tummy tuck is a fairly modern procedure, it was actually first developed over 100 years ago. Despite this, the technique is still quite a contemporary procedure in comparison to other plastic surgery procedures which were first invented in Ancient Greece and Rome.

The tummy tuck was initially performed as a medical procedure to treat conditions such as an umbilical hernia, however, it was in 1890 that the French discovered it could also be used to improve body contouring, which is what we see performed today.

2. Liposuction was only introduced in the 1980s

Within the last 40 years, the methods of tummy tuck procedures have improved dramatically. During the 1960s and 1970s, scars became minimised and body contouring methods had developed. Yet, it was only as recently as 1988 that the revolutionary liposuction procedure was introduced, meaning that all body sizes and shapes could undergo the procedure to improve their silhouette with dramatic results.

3. There are various types of tummy tuck

Although tummy tucks are usually considered as a generalised term, there are a number of different types to suit a range of body types. The most minor procedure is known as the mini tummy tuck which involves the removal of loose skin on the lower abdomen. On the other hand, the full tummy tuck removes large amounts of excess skin and tightens the muscles which targets the entire torso.
