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.
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.
THIS IS A CLASSIC CASE WHERE THE INMATES RUN THE ASYLUM
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.
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.
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
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.
Spin king Shane Warne, 49, has lost a whopping 15 kilograms by following a number of unorthodox methods.
Woman’s Day magazine reported on the father-of-three’s impressive achievement on Monday, breaking down the cricket legend’s keys to success.
According to the publication, Shane credits alternative wellness products, fasting, and even Channel Nine personality Eddie McGuire, for his slim-down.
Slim Spin king! Shane Warne, 49, has lost a whopping 15 kilograms by following a number of unorthodox methods
The retired icon reportedly underwent a dramatic fasting diet inspired by friend Eddie McGuire’s ‘101 Wellbeing’ Program.
He has also been indulging in detoxifying Chinese green tea and a ‘liquid herbal supplement,’ the magazine reports.
Shane’s weight has fluctuated dramatically over the years, with a significant weight gain back in 2017 the last to be widely reported on.
Alternative wellness! According to a new report, Shane is using detoxifying Chinese green tea and a ‘liquid herbal supplement’ to shed the kilos. (L) In 2017. (R) Last week
Shane openly joked about his weight at the time – notably during an idyllic vacation with his children in Spain.
‘Auditioning for the Baywatch with big bellies movie hahah,’ part of his post read.
But weight loss isn’t the only well documented cosmetic struggle the retiree has encountered over the years.
It’s long been speculated that Shane dabbled in cosmetic surgery, including injectibles such as Botox and filler.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in July last year, Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth suspected he had enlisted a little help.
‘I suspect that he has dabbled with Botox and perhaps some fillers here and there,’ he exclusively told Daily Mail Australia.
‘While women’s faces tend to look younger and softer with the right amount of fat, men’s faces tend to look better with weight loss,’ he said.
‘Shane’s is no exception – his face has become more chiseled, defined and handsome,’ he added.
Shane has always denied all allegations of cosmetic surgery, with one such denial airing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016.
‘Everyone says, “look what Warne’s done to his face. What’s he done to his head? Lay off the Botox. Get rid of the facelifts. He’s had fillers” and I’m like if I wanted to have some, I would have no issue and if someone asked, I’d say, ‘Yep, I’ve had some. But until then…”‘
Fashion designer Alex Perry has made no secret of the fact he relies on fillers and Botox to achieve his unique appearance.
And during an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, the 56-year-old raised eyebrows when he displayed a noticeably puffy visage.
After in-studio footage was shared to Instagram, KIIS FM listeners soon began accusing Alex of overdoing the cosmetic work and having one too many ‘facelifts’.
‘How many facelifts has he had?’ Fans have accused Alex Perry of having more plastic surgery, after he looked noticeably puffy during a radio interview on Monday (right). Left: Alex in 2018
‘How many facelifts has he had?’ one fan asked, prompting another to comment: ‘He looks like an old sock.’
It comes after a leading plastic surgeon accused the fashionista of ‘excessive’ use of anti-wrinkle injections last year.
Dr. Randal Haworth observed that Alex looks remarkably different in before and after photos and may have taken things too far.
The Beverly Hills-based surgeon also claimed that Alex’s face now looks rather ‘crowded’ as a result of ‘too much’ filler.
‘There is no denying that Mr. Perry has undergone significant change to his countenance,’ Dr. Haworth said at the time.
‘Compared to his younger self, his face is now “crowded”, making his eyes appear smaller and closer set.
‘Most likely, a generous recipe of injected filler and more than a drizzle of Botox in and around his forehead, brows and temples contributed to this look.’
‘Compared to his younger self, his face is now crowded’: Last year, plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth criticised Alex’s ‘excessive’ use of Botox and fillers. Pictured left: Alex in March 2002, and right:in September 2017
‘Additionally, his mid-face (the area between his lower eyes and upper lip) has been amply plumped to attain the “apple cheek”, a feature I feel is best left flatter in men,’ he added.
Dr. Haworth went on to say that it’s hard to determine whether Alex’s cosmetic work is permanent or temporary.
‘Hopefully the fillers used to obtain Mr. Perry’s current look are absorbable and therefore temporary,’ he said. ‘However, if fat was used (which is a permanent, living filler) his options, unfortunately, will be more limited.
Alex, whose celebrity fans include Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, told Yahoo Lifestyle in 2013 that he is not ashamed of using fillers and Botox.
‘There is nothing not real, there are a few fillers and there is a bit of Botox but that’s that. That’s normal, right?… It’s all real. It’s all real,’ he said.
In 2016, the Australia’s Next Top Model judge was criticised for his appearance by one of the show’s contestants, Kassidy Ure.
After Alex criticised one of her photos, she sniped back: ‘At least my lips are real!’
She has refused to comment on plastic surgery speculation over the years.
But Delta Goodrem came under scrutiny yet again on Sunday, when viewers accused The Voice coach of undergoing ‘cosmetic work’ after seeing her on launch night.
Fans flocked to Twitter to claim that the 34-year-old singer has had ‘too much work’ done to her face, with one person observing she has a fuller top lip.
‘What’s happened to her face?’ The Voice fans have accused Delta Goodrem, 34, of getting cosmetic work after she displayed a very polish appearance on launch night. Pictured left: on The Voice, and right: in 2007
‘Delta has had more work done. Can’t work it out… she doesn’t need to do anything she’s beautiful!’ another added.
‘Top lip? Was thinking that,’ wrote a third eagle-eyed fan, before somebody else asked: ‘What happened to Delta’s face? #toomuchworknow.’

It’s not the first time Delta has sparked cosmetic surgery speculation.
Last year, a leading plastic surgeon speculated that the Born To Try hitmaker may have invested in some cosmetic tweaks over the years.
Dr. Randal Haworth told Daily Mail Australia he had a ‘strong hunch’ Delta may have undergone a rhinoplasty, as well as cheek and lip fillers.
Claims: Last year, a leading plastic surgeon claimed that Delta may have undergone a nose job in addition to cheek and lip fillers. Pictured left: on The Voice, and right: in April 2003
‘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.
Dr. Haworth also believes the songstress may have indulged in some other non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
Hmm! ‘I find it apparent that both her cheekbones and her lips have been enhanced with a temporary filler,’ Dr. Randal Haworth said. Pictured left: on The Voice, and right: in 2003
He claimed Delta’s full cheeks and plump pout could be the result of temporary filler.
‘I find it apparent that both her cheekbones and her lips have been enhanced with a temporary filler, most likely of a hyaluronic acid variety such as Juvéderm or Restylane,’ he said.
‘Celebrities with busy schedules oftentimes can’t afford the recovery time needed to undergo fat transfer for more permanent results,’ he explained.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Delta Goodrem’s management for comment.

A renowned plastic surgeon has delivered a withering assessment of this year’s Married At First Sight stars, saying they are too dependent on fillers.
Beverly Hills-based Dr. Randal Haworth says the latest crop of brides have ‘over-inflated lips’ that sit uncomfortably with their faces and ‘don’t do them any favours’.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia, the CEO of DrHaworth.com also claimed that reality TV stars more generally are sending a harmful message to young fans by excessively plumping up their features.
‘Their lips are preposterously out of proportion!’ MAFS brides Jessika Power and Ines Basic ‘are destroying their looks with facial fillers’, says a leading cosmetic surgeon. Pictured left: Jessika pre-2017, and right: in 2019
After being shown before-and-after photos of Jessika Power, Martha Kalifatidis and Ines Basic, Dr. Haworth didn’t hold back.
‘Like a loud out-of-tune instrument in an otherwise beautiful orchestra, these over-inflated lips resemble baboon bottoms in heat and do no one any favours,’ he said.
Speaking about reality stars generally, he said there is a risk they are projecting unrealistic beauty standards on to a young generation of women.
He added: ‘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 and bland conformity whereby everyone starts to look the same.’

Several MAFS contestants, including single mother Susie Bradley, have admitted to using off-the-shelf lip fillers, such as Juvéderm.
In photos taken before their cosmetic transformations, the reality stars are almost unrecognisable compared to how they look today.
But Dr. Haworth believes that facial fillers have not necessarily improved or complemented the brides’ natural features.
‘Instead of enhancing facial sensuality, overly plumped lips tend to do the opposite and even age the face in a strange way,’ he observed.

He added: ‘For example, the exaggerated lips of Jessika only serve to distract from her natural beauty, while the lips of Martha just draw attention to her other churlish facial plastic surgery, including her rhinoplasty.’
Dr. Haworth went on to say that ‘so-called practitioners’ of cosmetic enhancements are allowing ‘their own aesthetic judgment to be hijacked by social media influencers’ and reality stars like the Kardashians.
‘This [fixation] encourages tunnel vision in doctors and nurse injectors alike, focusing only on lip volume and not on shape,’ he said.

Speaking to NW magazine on Monday, Jessika confirmed she has spent $25,000 on her cosmetic transformation so far – and has no plans to slow down.
Last month, Ines also admitted she has been getting lip fillers ‘for years’.
Furthermore, Martha has acknowledged having Botox and facial fillers in addition to undergoing a rhinoplasty and breast enlargement.

She’s rumoured to have undergone various cosmetic procedures in the past.
And Jessie Murphy (née Habermann) looked noticeably different while attending a Mother’s Day luncheon in Melbourne on Friday.
The footy WAG’s jawline looked more ‘square’ than usual, especially when compared to older photos that show her with a distinctive pointy chin.
What happened? Jessie Habermann’s jawline looked more ‘square’ than usual on Friday, sparking rumours she’s undergone cosmetic enhancements. left pic Jessie now, and right pic what she looked like in 2016
The apparent change in Jessie’s chin shape means her once heart-shaped face has taken on more oblong dimensions.
Meanwhile, the tip of her nose also seems more lifted and refined, and her complexion looks remarkably taut and wrinkle free.
It comes after leading plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth said that Jessie may have ‘stayed ahead of the game’ with the help of cosmetic procedures.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia in October 2018, Dr Haworth said he believes Jessie has undergone a breast augmentation, as well using Botox and fillers over the years.
‘I am quite confident she has neither changed her nose nor augmented her cheeks or jawline [surgically],’ said the Beverly Hills-based surgeon.
‘However, her face does seem more elegantly defined perhaps with the help of a little makeup alongside a loss of “baby fat”.’
Dr. Haworth also observed that Jessie’s eyebrows appear to have subtly heightened over the years, and her lips have increased in size.
‘Her eyebrows in certain photographs appear elevated into a more graceful arch which, at her age, was most likely attained with Botox,’ he claimed.
The celebrity doctor added: ‘A hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvéderm or Restylane was the most likely culprit behind her present, pleasingly plump lips.’
Since Jessie began dating her now-husband, Carlton captain Marc Murphy, in 2011, her changing appearance has sparked cosmetic surgery rumours.
Images from the late 2000s show her looking noticeably different compared to recent photos, sporting a smaller cup size and thinner lips.
Just makeup? Today, Jessie’s overall face shape appears thinner and her lips plumper when compared to older photos. Pictured left: in 2009, and right: in March 2019
Dr. Haworth added: ‘What is most obvious [today] is her augmented bosom. Certain dresses reveal unnaturally round breasts with clearly defined edges.
‘To me, that spells breast augmentation until proven otherwise. Despite this, I feel the size of her breasts do complement the rest of her body.’
He concluded: ‘All in all, I feel Jessie has matured into a young beautiful woman who is obviously comfortable in her own skin.’
Surgery: Dr. Haworth also believes Jessie has likely undergone a breast enlargement. Pictured left: in 2013, and right: in September 2016
She has been the subject of boob job rumours for well over a decade.
But Sophie Monk has officially denied having a breast enlargement, telling her Instagram followers on Sunday she is all natural.
After fans were left gobsmacked by footage of her on holiday in the Maldives, the former Bardot star denied she was showing off her ‘new boobs’.
‘New boobs?’ one of her followers commented, to which Sophie swiftly replied: ‘They’re 39 years old and going south.’
Sophie, who turns 40 in December, has long been accused of going under the knife
Have your boobs somewhat grown?’ After fans were left gobsmacked by footage of her on holiday in Maldives, Sophie denied on Sunday she was showing off her ‘new boobs’
She previously denied having a breast enlargement in 2014.
Speaking on 2DayFM‘s breakfast show, Sophie claimed that that if she were to have surgery on that area it would be a breast reduction.
‘I want a boob reduction. They’re a 32D and at times a DD, and they get in the way when I do sports,’ she said at the time.
‘But doctors told me to leave them alone, women die for those things!’
Last year, Sophie sparked rumours she’d undergone Botox and lip fillers after displaying noticeably fuller features during a TV appearance.
While being interviewed on the Today show in November 2018, her lips appeared much plumper compared to when she filmed Love Island earlier that year.
At the time, Beverly Hills-based cosmetic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth said Sophie had likely ‘taken full advantage of some non-surgical cosmetic options’.
