Schapelle Corby spent nearly a decade behind bars in Bali’s most notorious jail after being convicted of trafficking marijuana in 2005. But she has transformed her appearance since being released on parole four years ago, sparking rumors of cosmetic enhancements. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday that he believes Schapelle Corby may have invested in some ‘non-invasive work’ to achieve her youthful looks.
‘The most obvious changes are to her lips and cheeks,’ Dr. Haworth observed, he believes ‘her lips and cheeks have been well augmented, most likely with injectable fillers such as Juvéderm or equivalent.’ Dr. Randal Haworth claimed he had a ‘sneaking suspicion’ that she may have had ‘injections such as Botox to smooth out the lines and wrinkles around her eyes’ after studying before-and-after photos of Corby Schapelle.
‘A stint in an Indonesian prison would be a less than welcome holiday, so it’s understandable that anyone would want a fresh start after that,’ he said. ‘It seems as if Ms Corby is no exception to that rule.’
Earlier this year, Schapelle denied having Botox injections or fillers. She told Woman’s Day in March: ‘No fillers, no Botox. I just use Snapchat and Instagram filters! I look at a photo of me and think, “Gee, that’s ugly,” and then I put a filter on it and think, “Actually, it’s pretty good!” ‘With the additional aid of Snapchat filters, her appearance is certainly one for the better,’ Dr. Haworth concluded.
What is Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr Randal Haworth’s, latest tool to minimize bruising with injections?
Injection techniques to place filler into the face to correct lines, folds and wrinkles have became even more advanced with the use of blunt tip cannulae, such as Dermasculpt.
These are similar to needles except that they are not sharp and therefore are less prone to cut the tiny diameter blood vessels in and below the skin.
What does this mean for the patient?
-Markedly less bruising
-Generally significant less discomfort
-Greater safety profile
I don’t employ them to treat all areas of the face, since certain anatomical facial features require extremely precise placement of filler not afforded by blunt tip cannulae. They are ideal to inject larger areas which require generalized plumping or filling such as the temples, cheek hollows, brows and jawline.
I have injected most types of filler through them including Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, Artefill, Aquamid and Radiesse.
Be prepared to hear some minor crackling noise, however, for the first minute or so similar to lettuce being cut!
Botox may soon be used to treat psychological depression.
We know that it can help alleviate the symptoms of migraines in many.
Dr. Randal Haworth Beverly Hills is an expert specialist in facial plastic surgery including maintenance therapy through fillers and paralytic agents such as Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomen®.
Botulinum toxin A seems to do far more than just block the transmission of acetylcholine (the neurotransmitter chemical released from nerve endings to affect change in muscle, glands etc.).
There is new evidence to suggest that Botulinum toxin type A can be used to treat depression which was first reported in 2006 by two American doctors (Finzi E, Wasserman E “treatment of depression with botulinum toxin A: a case series, Dermatol Surg 2006; 32 (five): 645-649). Based on this small study, a much larger study with careful patient assessment has shown that a single treatment of the glabellar lines (the dreaded “11” frown lines) with botulinum toxin resulted in a significant and sustained benefit for depressed patients (Wollmer MA, de Boer C, Kalak N, et al. “facing depression with botulinum toxin: a randomized controlled trial,” Journal of psychiatric research May 2012; 46 (five): 574-581).
Therefore, one can conclude that Botox®, through control of facial expression, seems to have the ability to control patient mood. However, is this an effect of increased self-confidence on the patient’s part or is this a result of hormone or regulatory peptide secretion as well?
Who knows at this time, but this is intriguing nonetheless. Dr. Haworth of Beverly Hills, however, is still not offering this treatment for depression even though many do say that aesthetic plastic surgery can be surgical psychiatry when performed in properly selected patients! Is this why there are so many ostensibly happy people in Beverly Hills and and its environs? 😉
