From breast implants to extreme weight loss: Inside The Voice Australia coaches’ very glamorous cosmetic transformations

It takes more than just talent to become a celebrity coach on The Voice Australia.  

While Delta Goodrem, Kelly Rowland, Guy Sebastian and Boy George are all very different performers, they have all undergone some physical changes to become the stars they are today. 

Here, we take a look at the dramatic cosmetic transformations of The Voice Australia’s glamorous coaching panel.

Delta has come a long way since her days playing Nina Tucker on Neighbours.

While the 35-year-old’s fashion and hair cuts have changed over the years, many fans have speculated that the Born To Try singer has also tweaked her look with cosmetic procedures.

While Delta has refused to comment on plastic surgery rumours over the years, top plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth believes she may have had a nose job and fillers. 

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in 2018, Dr Haworth said he had a ‘strong hunch’ that Delta may have undergone a rhinoplasty, and may have also had filler injected into her cheeks and lips.  

‘Certain angles may be more revealing than others, but I have a strong hunch she has undergone a rhinoplasty because the shape of her tip is more demarcated from the rest of her nose while her bridge is noticeably narrowed,’ he said at the time.

‘These are the types of characteristics that would make any plastic surgeon suspicious,’ he added.

Guess who! She’s a tabloid figure who has made millions from Instagram – but would you recognise her as a teenager in this rare throwback photo?

She’s a self-made millionaire who proudly calls the Gold Coast home.

And thanks to her fitness journey and risqué selfies, this 25-year-old mother-of-two now boasts more than 10 million followers on Instagram.

But would you recognise her in this rare, unfiltered picture from her teenage years?

The smiling teenager in the throwback photo is none other than Tammy Hembrow. 

In the resurfaced snap, which was shared to the Lipstick Alley gossip forum, Tammy looks almost like a completely different person. 

The selfie was taken around 10 years ago, before Tammy transformed her look and embraced a more ‘Kardashian’ aesthetic.

Earlier this year, rare footage emerged of Tammy partying in the music video for hip hop group Mr Hill & Rahjconkas’ 2014 single, Non Stop. 

She displayed a more natural appearance in the video, with her lips, nose and cheeks looking noticeably different. 

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in August 2018, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr Randal Haworth claimed that Tammy may have undergone a nose job, liposuction and dermal fillers to achieve her bombshell look.

‘Based on what I presume to be filtered photos, she has undergone a striking transformation of not only her facial features but also of her facial shape,’ Dr Haworth said at the time.

‘Specifically, her jawline is more defined into a “V-line”. I would even venture to say her chin has been shortened and narrowed compared to her teenage years.’

This may have been achieved through ‘liposuction or bony chin modification’.

Iggy Azalea shows off her plastic surgery transformation in the artwork for her new single Lola… and she looks like a completely different person compared to throwback photos

Iggy Azalea has released the artwork for her new single, Lola. 

The cover art shows a sleek-looking Iggy pouting in a plunging green dress with pop star Alice Chater resting in her lap.

With her plump lips and slender nose, the 29-year-old rapper is almost unrecognisable compared to when she first arrived on the celebrity scene in 2012.

In photos taken when the Australian-born star was just 23, she sports noticeably thinner lips, a larger nose and a flatter chest.

Iggy has admitted to undergoing some procedures, including rhinoplasty and a breast augmentation. 

However, she has always maintained that her famous derrière is all natural.

What a transformation! The 29-year-old rapper has completely changed her appearance between 2012 (left) and 2019 (right)

Last year, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth told Daily Mail Australia that he believes the rapper may have made additional changes to her facial shape.

According to Dr. Haworth, who has not treated Iggy himself, she appears to have invested in some ‘subtle’ and ‘beautiful’ refinements.

‘Iggy is what I would describe as an excellent “canvas” on which a plastic surgeon can reveal his work,’ he observed.

‘When done right, results can be sublime and indiscernible to a layman’s eye.’

In addition to Iggy’s rhinoplasty, which ‘straightened and narrowed her nose’, Dr. Haworth believes she may have undergone ‘a chin augmentation as well as mandibular angle enhancement to give her a more refined, “modelesque” jawline.’

‘This can be done either with solid silicone implants or off-the-shelf injectable fillers, but either way, her results are spectacularly non-obvious,’ he said.

Iggy, who hails from Mullumbimby, NSW and moved to the U.S. aged 16, has never concealed the fact she has undergone a breast enlargement.

Before and after: Iggy’s face has completely transformed over the years. Pictured left: in September 2012, and right: in September 2019

‘Four months ago, I got bigger boobs! I’d thought about it my entire life,’ she told fashion bible Vogue in 2015.

She later spoke about her new look with E! and explained why she decided to go public with the news.

‘I love them so much I had to talk about them,’ she revealed. ‘Everybody did say, “I don’t think you need to say it because no one will ever know because they’re so small”. I said, “I know but I’m just going to say it [because] I’m a blabber mouth!”

Quite the difference! Iggy’s face looked remarkably different in this photo taken in late 2014

‘I’d feel better not to have some secret. It’s much freer to say it and then you don’t have to worry someone will dig it up,’ she added. 

However, despite her candid attitude to surgery, bootylicious Iggy steadfastly denies rumours she has undergone ‘butt implants’.

She told Australian radio program Stav, Abby & Matt in 2017: ‘No, I don’t have bum implants! They’re not my real boobs, but it is my real butt.’

“I have breast implants and I have pain Doc.”

As a  plastic surgeon treating breast implant associated deformities and illnesses for over 25 years, I have seen many patients such as Dolly Parton who now complain of pain associated with the breast augmentation. For example, I treated award winning actress Sally Kirkland back in the late 90s for breast implant related pain. I removed her implants and their associated encasing collagen capsules and corrected her resultant “empty breast” via a mastopexy or breast lift in common parlance.

Actual breast pain tends to be more frequent in patients with very large (i.e. heavy) implants. especially in conjunction with thin, stretched-out overlying breast tissue. Indeed, the implant itself becomes the main culprit responsible for the thinning;  essentially, a vicious cycle  develops taking the patient down a one-way street of pain.

Heavy implants especially in delicately framed women can also contribute to cervical, deltoid and upper back pain. Again, this could simply be represent the long term effects of heavy implants upon the upper body. The only way to alleviate this painful ball-and-chain effect is to either reduce the implant size or just remove them completely. A breast lift is often done in conjunction with implant removal to tighten the excess loose skin left behind.

Capsular contracture is another reason for breast pain extending to the shoulder like a vice, limiting one’s range of motion . When implants are placed in a pocket under the breast  a capsule composed of your body‘s natural collagen develops to line the pocket. This capsule can have a mind of its own and decide to shrink down tightly around the implant causing distortion and in some cases significant pain. This can be torturous and removal of the scar tissue is the only way to effectively treat the problem.

Finally,  many patients suffering from breast implant-related pain have attributed their problems to auto immune disease caused by the very implants  themselves. Often times, these patients may complain of other systemic painful symptoms including fibromyalgia and fatigue. Though few doctors question their pain, there has been little  scientific proof that there’s a link between painful auto immune disease such as fibromyalgia and breast implants.

Most women end up loving their breast augmentation  and even accept mild discomfort in order to maintain their new cleavage. However, for the unfortunate minority  who experience severe pain, parting ways with their breast implants may be their only solution. 

Michelle Bridges creates a stir with ‘no filter’ photo of her face

The ex Biggest Loser icon reveals her secrets Fitness guru and former Biggest Loser star Michelle Bridges has posted a photo with her mum, proudly labelled ‘no filter’ – eliciting a strong reaction from her legion of followers.
The star took to Instagram to share an outing with her mother Maureen, captioning it, ‘Out with my mum! No filter but plenty of Love ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #gratitude.’

Michelle’s fans took to the comment section to rave about the photo, with one gushing, ‘I hope you know how beautiful you are without any photoshopping etc.

‘So many people look up to you – you’re naturally beautiful and we love the real you!’

Another raved, ‘You look so pretty 😊’, while yet another wrote, ‘I have unfollowed many with filters. Fake. Thanks for keeping it real.’

A fourth added, ‘Your skin looks incredible.’

Out with my mum! No filter but plenty of Love ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #gratitude

Indeed, the star’s seemingly completely line-free visage was a sight to behold. .

Last year, Hollywood cosmetic surgeon Dr Randal Haworth claimed that Michelle could be an ‘enthusiastic user’ of both ‘fillers and Botox’, Daily Mail Australia reported.

Dr Haworth speculated the Aussie fitness star has plumped her lips and filled her under-eye area with Juvéderm.

‘A tell-tale sign that filler was used to treat under-eye hollows is bulging below her lower eyes next to the nose. I can see Michelle has those when she is smiling in recent photographs,’ the surgeon told the publication.

These photos were taken by my gorgeous, talented friend for @escapesouthernhighlands magazine Spring 2019 edition 📸🙏🏻 Would you just LOOK at me and my little man (with his long hair out of the bun too 😉) In the article I talk all about my home in the Highlands away from the rat-race city, a few of my favourite things (no spoilers 😘) and why my @12wbt is still going strong after 10 whole years 🎉🙌🏻 Nica, this photoshoot has to be one of my faves EVER! And to the Escape team, thank you for the feature 💛 #escapesouthernhighlands #nicaphotography

On the subject of Botox, Michelle has said: ‘I am a fan of anything that makes a person feel good about themselves and more confident’.

Michelle is mum to three-year-old son Axel, who she welcomed in December 2015 with former partner and Biggest Loser co-star Steve ‘Commando’ Willis.

‘We’re just like any other family who have full-time jobs and children; we’re not special!’ she says.

‘We didn’t plan to be so busy but that’s often the way it is – you have to figure it out as you go!’

But in June, Michelle admitted during WHO’s Raw Talks podcast that she struggles with the constant rumours about her and Steve’s relationship.

‘Sometimes I don’t deal with it well. Sometimes it really, really hurts me,’ she explained.

Michelle and Steve first got together in 2013 after meeting while working together on The Biggest Loser.

Plastic Surgery-The Male Factor

Man running
Exercise is hard work

For the last eight years or so, I, as one of the foremost cosmetic injection experts in Beverly Hills, have noticed an increasing number of men seeking aesthetic improvement outside of diet and exercise. However, I see this growth as less a trend and more of a real shift in the industry.

This growth is spurred on by society’s reliance on visual rather than written communication and its unabashed obsession with youth and beauty over old-fashioned wisdom and experience. The eruption of social media, including Instagram and the like, has only heightened the problem. It has awakened our once dormant  narcissism into the self-perpetuating collective contagion that it is today. 

Consequently, there is less social stigma for men to seek out ways to better their appearance in this highly competitive world. In 2018, more aesthetic technologies are finally delivering on their promises to reduce wrinkles, firm faces, reverse atrophy and sculpt bodies without hair. The armamentarium used includes Botox, Jeuveau( or #Newtox), Juvederm, Vollure, Restylane, Radiesse,Voluma, Bellafill, IP, laser hair removal and other lasers to treat brown discoloration, and red patches. Men are not only seeking out ways to keep themselves looking young and competitive but also non-surgical ways to actually enhance their features; these include filler/liquid nosejobs (rhinoplasties), cheek and chin augmentations and jawline defining and even laser induced fat burning with SculpSure..

All done with the expert hands of a board certified plastic surgeon or his personally trained expert nurse injectors (such as Katherine Braun, R.N. helming The Haworth Institute’s own medispa, Self-Centered Aesthetics™), results which are both significant and, most importantly, natural.  This is ideal for men wanting their appearance to be on point in order to compliment their skill set at work.

No cutting, no stitches, less recovery, less expense- what’s there not to like for those men who simply want to look good with minimal expense and time? 

Get the London Goheen look! American model, 21, reveals how she keeps her derrière toned

American model London Goheen, 21, didn’t achieve her pert derrière and perfectly toned legs overnight. 

And on Saturday, the brunette beauty went extra hard at the gym after eating an epic cheat meal the night before.

Taking to Instagram, London shared an intense workout video of herself in a barely-there gym outfit that revealed her exercise secrets.

The model wore skin-tight pink exercise shorts and a skimpy bralette that could barely hold her assets. 

Lunge enthusiast: London performed two lunge exercises, curtsy lunges (left) and normal lunges (right), saying she always uses a 10-pound weight, which is roughly 4.5 kilograms

For the third exercise, London did weighted curtsy lunges with a 10-pound weight, which is roughly 4.5 kilograms. 

The 21-year-old then finishes of the workout with normal weighted lunges and leg extensions on a workout machine. 

With a focused look on her face, London appeared to get extra hard at the gym on Saturday morning after a huge cheat meal on Friday night. 

Taking to Instagram, the model revealed she ate a pepperoni pizza, chicken wings and three ice-cream sandwiches with the caption: ‘Yes, this is all for me and me only.’

Treat yourself! The night before her morning workout, London ate a pepperoni pizza, chicken wings and three ice-cream sandwiches with the caption: ‘Yes, this is all for me and me only.’

Last year, photos emerged of the stunner showing the extent of the extraordinary transformation she’s managed to achieve since her days as an ordinary high school student in the US. 

‘Specifically, her slightly bulbous tip has been narrowed to form a perfect streamline with her thin nasal bridge. All in all, it’s good work,’ he added.

Dr. Haworth further speculated that London has augmented her lips with filler to create a more ‘sensual’ look.

‘Her lips have been obviously augmented, most likely with a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvéderm, Volbella or Restylane,’ he said.

Refinements: Dr Randal Haworth told Daily Mail Australia in December that he believes the Texan has undergone rhinoplasty in addition to having non-surgical lip fillers. Pictured left: In her teenage years, and right: in 2018

In January, an eagle-eyed fan noticed London had previously admitted to breast implants on her Instagram account.

‘Where did you get your breast augmentation you look amazing,’ one fan asked, to which London replied, ‘Houston’.

London first made headlines in September when Reece Hawkins, 24, publicly confirmed they were dating.

Are they engaged? In June, London sent fans into a frenzy with a not-so-subtle set of emojis on a loved-up Instagram post with her beau. It was captioned with a ring, love-heart and baby icon

The new relationship, which began just a few months after Reece ended his engagement to fitness model Tammy Hembrow, left millions of fans devastated.  

In June, London sent fans into a frenzy with a not-so-subtle set of emojis on a loved-up Instagram post with her beau.

Captioning a photo with a ring, love-heart and baby icon, the 21-year-old’s social media upload was flooded with comments congratulating the couple.

Plastic Surgeon and the Anesthetist

How do I chose local, regional, sedation or general?

General generally means endotracheal tubes

Essentially there are three types of anesthesia:

1. Local anesthesia-the type a dentist gives you while you’re totally awake

2. IV sedation or “twilight sleep“. A sedative is administered intravenously to induce a deep state of sedation. 

3. General anesthesia-Sedative agents are administered both intravenously as well as through endotracheal breathing tube into the lungs.

Though the most consider IV anesthesia as being safer, ironically it can be more dangerous. Unlike general anesthesia, IV sedation does not use a breathing tube to prevent a patient’s airway from closing if sedation gets too deep. Actually, this can happen many times during an operation and that is why the anesthesia provider must stay hypervigilant to deliver enough sedation to maintain a patient’s unconscious state but not enough to stop them breathing on their own.

There are two types of patients when it comes to anesthesia-those who are very wary of any anesthesia, let alone general and those who want full general anesthesia without hesitation. Obviously, the choice as to what type of anesthesia is used during plastic surgery is a collaboration between the patient and the surgeon. 

As a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, creating human artwork involves deep concentration, precise technique, a painstaking attention to detail and unlimited patience. Therefore I want my patient to be perfectly still, comfortable and safe so I can do my very best without being distracted,  even if the surgery is only “skin deep”. This is why I, as a facelift expert in Beverly Hills, perform my facelifts and detailed hyperaesthetic facial surgery under general anesthesia. I feel I can deliver the best results I can while the patient is comfortable and safe.

I utilize general anesthesia for most of my high-definition body-sculpting, abdominoplasties and breast enhancements to enable me to go that “extra mile”. It’s all too often I hear patients complain about their underwhelming results from surgery performed under IV twilight sleep. This is because surgeons are constrained in what they can fully achieve by a moving, uncomfortable patient. In Beverly Hills, standards are high and patients expect the best and this is why they come to my clinic from across the world for their results and not for the type of anesthesia they receive.

However, there are many situations in which I feel IV sedation is better for the patient. Those requiring modest amounts of work where pain control can be easily supplemented by injected local anesthesia are best served with twilight sleep. Generally, shorter surgeries of the skin and subcutaneous tissue but above muscle fall into this category.

In the end, it all boils down to the concerns and expectations of the patient and how best the surgeon is able to fulfill them. However, most honest surgeons, whether in Beverly Hills or anywhere else for that matter, would agree that their most detailed and precise work was performed under general anesthesia

Lip Dysmorphia-It’s a Thing

Who’s Running the Asylum ?

The participants of “Married at First Sight Australia” all have one thing in common-lips preposterously out of proportion with their face. Like a loud out-of-tune instrument in an otherwise beautiful orchestra, these overinflated lips resemble baboon bottoms in heat and do no one any favours.

"Married at first sight Australia" overinflated lips so commonly seen
The characteristic overinflated lips so commonly seen nowadays in the social media age

The mistake made by the many so-called practitioners of aesthetic medicine, is to allow their own aesthetic judgment to be hijacked by the social media influencers. This encourages tunnel vision in doctors and nurse injectors alike, focusing only on  lip volume and not on shape. Instead of enhancing facial sensuality,  overly plumped lips tend to do the opposite and even age the face in a strange way. For example,  the exaggerated lips of Jessika Power only serve to distract from her natural beauty while the lips of Martha Kalfatidis just draw attention to her other churlish facial plastic surgery including her rhinoplasty.


As a renowned lip reshaping expert, I can say it is not just the  lips but also the surgically and “filter enhanced” faces and bodies that send a bad message to young people. It breeds insecurity, narcissism, depression and bland conformity whereby everyone starts to look the same.

Hot Lips, Cold Sores

 Stress, weather, chemicals and injury to the lip can all awaken the virus in your body. But needle punctures can be particularly triggering for cold sores.   As one of the Beverly Hills top lip injector of fillers, Plastic Surgeon Dr Randal Haworth does see the occasional cold sore erupt 1-2 days after a treatment. It is for that reason, Dr Haworth recommends antiviral prophylaxis is select cases.

Cold sore herpes Simplex Type I of the lips
Cold sore herpes Simplex Type I which can occur after any lip procedure.

Of course, you can be prone to cold sores, get a lip filler and have no sign of an outbreak. But it’s good practice to be precautious and minimize the risk.

Dr Haworth notes that any cosmetic procedure which causes stress to your skin has the potential to stimulate cold sore recurrence. Cold sores are a prevalent affliction and are generally due to herpes virus (HSV) type one particular (generally oral herpes), with the minority (10%) being due to HSV type 2 (usually genital).

Many main infections of HSV-1 are asymptomatic, while recurrent infections can present as fever blisters at the vermillion border. Although cold sores may well not cause any long-term skin damage, they do possess the potential to cause scarring at the contaminated area.

Roughly two-thirds of a global population under 55 are infected with HSV-1. Primary illness develops in childhood through non-sexual contact usually, for example by sharing utensils or towels, but it is regularly assumed to be solely caused by kissing. If symptoms do present with primary infection, they take place two to 20 days after direct exposure.

Aesthetic procedures such as for example lasers, injectables, microneedling and chemical peeling often require limited or deliberate, manipulated trauma to skin, which includes the potential to trigger cold sore recurrence. Dr Haworth, the world’s foremost lip reshaping expert (including upper lip and corner lip lifts) will even warn his patients that his signature lip enhancements can trigger a herpes simplex outbreak. When a fever blister shows up after an aesthetic treatment, it could be devastating for the individual due to distress, pain and potential skin damage of a cosmetically very sensitive area. You will find a particular likelihood of scarring after ablative types of procedures (lasers, peels).

Cold sore prophylaxis can be recommended in the subsequent circumstances:

-More than three spontaneous occurrences every yea
-Previous eruption at any time, as a result of a procedure
-Lip augmentation and HSV eruption regardless of date or time
-Facial resurfacing procedures; anything that breaches skin carrier, and especially medium or deep peels, facial skin lasabrasion, microneedling and microdermabrasion

Immunocompromised patients

Prophylaxis Dr Haworth recommends includes predosing with Valtrex 500mg daily for 2 days to continue for 3 after the procedure. He’ll substitute 1000 mg daily in particularly susceptible individuals.
