Do Non-surgical Treatments Help Maintain Megan Gale’s Youthful Complexion?

Megan GaleMegan Gale, has long been an advocate for aging gracefully, speaking openly about her views on plastic surgery and why she has chosen not to go under the knife. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth has weighed in on Megan’s age-defying appearance. ‘I understand Megan has denied “going under the knife” and, based solely on her photographs, I tend to believe her,’ Dr. Haworth told Daily Mail Australia this week.

Dr. Haworth, who has not treated Megan himself, described several small, non-surgical procedures she may have undergone to maintain her supermodel look. Haworth also believes that Megan may have had some Botox ‘here and there’ to subtly smooth out her crow’s feet. Megan has spoken candidly about her attitudes toward cosmetic work in the past. In 2016 she told New Idea in 2016 that she would never consider surgery as her former AFL star partner Shaun Hampson, 30, would ‘kill her’.

Megan, who previously dated radio personality Andy Lee, is one of Australia’s most successful fashion exports. Throughout her career, she has graced the covers of countless magazines, including Marie Claire, InStyle, and GQ Australia.

Alex Perry’s ‘excessive’ use of Botox and fillers

Alex Perry, whose celebrity fans include Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, told Yahoo in 2013 that he is not ashamed of using fillers and Botox. In 2016, the Australia’s Next Top Model judge was criticized for his appearance by one of the show’s contestants, 21-year-old Kassidy Ure. After Alex criticized her photos, she sniped back: ‘At least my lips are real!’

Alex PerryBeverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth accused the Australian fashion designer of ‘excessive’ use of anti-wrinkle injections. Haworth observed how Alex, 55, looks remarkably different in before and after photos and may have taken things too far. The Beverly Hills surgeon-to-the-stars claimed Alex’s face now looks ‘crowded’ as a result of ‘too much’ filler.

Dr. Haworth stated that ‘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.’

Has Former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins Gone Under The Knife?

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth offers his expert opinion on whether Jennifer Hawkins has gone under the knife. She has been the subject of ongoing surgery speculation due to her changing appearance over the years. Dr. Haworth told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday: ‘I often see pretty girls like Jennifer wanting to fine-tune their features to enter “supermodel” territory.’

Jennifer Hawkins Despite being a household name for 15 years, Jennifer does not appear to have aged a day and is arguably more beautiful now than she was in her early twenties. Dr. Haworth, who has not treated Jennifer himself, stated that the Australian model appears to have invested in some minor improvements to ‘improve facial balance as a whole’. In 2010, Jennifer attributed her drastic change in appearance to healthy eating, exercise and makeup during an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

While old photos of Jennifer reveal a noticeably thinner pout and fuller face, she has previously brushed off surgery speculation. Jennifer once told The Australian Women’s Weekly that it’s the nature of the fashion industry to be accused of undergoing cosmetic surgery. ‘When someone says “under the knife” I don’t have a reaction,’ she told the magazine.

Celebrity Buttocks Augmentation Rumors Confirmed

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr Randal Haworth weighs in on these celebrity lifts in this article featured on Zwivel.

In terms of Hollywood beauty standards, the butt holds a hallowed place. Look no further than the pages of your favorite gossip mags to find butt augmentation examples.

Big-bootied ladies who are pioneers in the posterior procedure include Kim K. and Heidi Montag. While some of these augmentations are impressive feats of cosmetic surgery, others have fallen flat. In this piece, we weigh in on different celebrity cases and tell you if they got it right.

The Rise of the Butt Augmentation

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), buttock augmentations are on the rise. In 2016, buttock fat grafting rose in popularity by 26% from the year before while the number of butt implants grew by some 18% in the same time span.

Whether it’s the Brazilian butt lift, implants, or illegal filler injections, celebrity cases can teach us a valuable lesson on the importance of choosing a good plastic surgeon.

“Whereas years ago buttock augmentation was uncommonly performed, it has become a popular, ‘mainstream’ cosmetic surgery procedure in the past half-decade,” notes Layton, UT plastic surgeon Dr. York Yates. “Although a good result in plastic surgery always starts with the achievement of the patient’s goals, there are some concerns with the long-term effects of extreme volume enhancement on the stability of the skin and soft tissue,” he warns.

In addition, fads change and in this plastic surgeon’s opinion it is only a matter of time before the extremely large buttock is again viewed as ‘overweight’ rather than curvy.

The Pull to Plump the Derriere

Novel procedures often translate into hot trends and butt augmentations are no exception. Surgeons are honing their skills to create plumper backsides that are more natural-looking every day.

Fat grafting procedures are probably the reason why Kim Kardashian’s behind appeared natural when visualized using an X-ray. With results like that, it’s no wonder this procedure is on the rise. To sweeten the deal with grafting, the fat inserted into the butt is usually taken from the tummy. Data shows that these procedures are gaining popularity with patients who want a two-for-one lipo and augmentation procedure.

Recipe for Success

According to the plastic surgeons we talked to, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to the perfect butt lift — it’s all about meeting patients’ expectations.

“A good butt lift or augmentation can mean different things to different people,” explains Murrieta, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Eichenberg. “There are some common themes. Big, round, full and healthy looking are almost always good, but too big can draw too much attention because at some point it will not look natural. Of course, for some women, looking augmented or extra-large is the idea.”

Massachusetts-based plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph A. Russo agrees. “I think celebrities with the most well-done augmentations are the ones that are not blatantly obvious or oversized,” he said. “Celebs with great shape and proportions… Basically, the ones you may not realize have had it done but simply look great.”

Kailyn Lowry

“Teen Mom 2” reality star and mother of three Kailyn Lowry went under the knife in 2016 at the hands of the famed Dr. Miami (Dr. Michael Salzhauer of Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery in Miami). Lowry documented her Brazilian butt lift on social media, noting that she has long struggled with body image issues and that the procedure helped her be at peace with her body.

Dr. Randal Haworth cites Lowry’s case as a good example of a lift gone right. “A Brazilian butt lift or butt augmentation with good results will make the waist and thighs look smaller, which in turn also brings the torso into more harmonious proportions. It also can make the buttocks appear rounder and more toned or reduce any drooping or sagging,” he says.

Jenna Jameson

The world’s best-known adult entertainer does not shy away from discussing taboo plastic surgery procedures. The Queen of Porn has had plenty of surgical hiccups that include implant removals and a botched vaginoplasty. She admitted to her castmates on “Celebrity Big Brother” that she had “a little somethin’-somethin’” done to her butt, but we don’t have details on the procedure. Dr. Haworth points to Jameson’s case as an example of not-so-great surgical handiwork, along with Blac Chyna and former Playboy Playmates Kristina and Karissa Shannon.

“When the results of a buttock augmentation, whether via fat or implants, are so exaggerated as to result in disharmony with the surrounding torso, the net visual effect can be downright bizarre,” Haworth cautions. “For example, if your bottom is overly round and big, you can actually look shorter than you really are. Additionally, we as plastic surgeons do not have long-term data as to how these comically large buttocks may age and sag over time.”

Gloria (Croatia) 2017

Dr. HAWORTH is interviewed by Gloria magazine about his life in being a top Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and catering to the aesthetic whims and desires of the rich and famous as well as his charity work. He has heard about Gloria magazine from his ex wife who was Serbian Actress Ana Alexander (Stojanovic).

Building the optimal in-office OR

By Lisette Hilton

1. Flow and Freedom of Movement

Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon, Randal Haworth, M.D., says he needs to be comfortable and free to move in order to perform facial and body plastic surgery.

But space can be somewhat limited in an OR inside a boutique plastic surgery practice, he says.

“… so careful planning of the envisioned flow between patient, surgeon, scrub tech, circulating nurse and anesthesia provider must be done,” Dr. Haworth says. “In my case, I had to work with a rectangular operating room, in which case I first had to decide where the anesthesia machine would be situated, since its range of movement would be limited by the oxygen and vacuum hoses tethering it to the ceiling. Consequently, it was important for me to have a 180-degree turning radius for the operating table, so I could position it according to whether I am performing facial or body surgery. Of course, OR lights have to follow suit and must be very mobile and bright. My Trumpf LED [Trumpf Medical] system fits the bill nicely.”

2. A Quality Monitor and Sound System

Having a big monitor with a good sound system for music is not only a luxury but a necessity for the modern plastic surgeon. Having the monitor in constant view is a must, according to Dr. Haworth.

3. Intelligently Designed Cabinetry

Proper cabinetry, design to maximize space and efficiency, is essential, according to Dr. Haworth.

“You can never have too many cabinets from the get-go, since these promote organization and obviate the need for vulgar retrofits in the future,” he says. “When it comes to designing my clinic or the operating room, I think that creating and maximizing the feeling of unrestricted space is important for both the patient’s sense of security and the staffs’ sense of clarity.”

4. Don’t Cut Corners

Don’t cut expenses, when it comes to safety, according to Dr. Cohen.

5. Seek Expertise

Dr. Cohen says cosmetic surgeons should tap experts in designing operating rooms.

“Reach out to architects with experience in both the design and credentialing processes,” Dr. Cohen says. “Ultimately, certain third-party inspections may be required, and you don’t want to be caught off guard.”

Dos and Don’ts for the In-office OR

Erin Metelka, an interior designer with Studio Four Design, offers these design dos and don’ts.

OR Dos:

  • Use a sheet flooring, with heat welded seams and sanitary cove base.
  • Use bleach cleanable/non-porous products.
  • Use clean/calming colors.
  • Provide a variety of adjustable ambient lighting options.
  • Utilize floor patterns to designate the extents of the sterile zone and care-provider zones.
  • With the wide variety of procedures that occur in an operating room, often times, the table is moved in order to accommodate the most efficient workflow with the other equipment in the suite. The floor patterns can also be used to dimension the proper location of the table for these various scenarios.
  • When creating several operating rooms, utilize an identical layout (not mirrored). Often, physicians are moving into adjacent operating rooms for a procedure, while a room is being turned over and sterilized. Having identical layouts increases efficiency and reduces error.

OR Don’ts:

  • Do not have extraneous items of décor within the suite, such as artwork.
  • Do not utilize fabric of any kind such as curtains/draperies. If there are windows, create privacy with natural light by using integrated frosted glass. If an upholstery is required for a physician stool or other items, a bleach cleanable vinyl is a suitable alternative, ideally with a Crypton or nano-technology finish applied (these finishes work to prevent moisture penetration to the cushion and function as an antimicrobial).
  • Do not place any direct down-lighting, with the exception of the surgical boom, directly over the table.

“The Lifestyle Lift”-LSL . Does that really stand for the long scar lift?

  The myths and realities of the Lifestyle Lift

As with any service industry, there are convenience stop businesses and destination businesses. You see that with restaurants (think of McDonald’s or Chili’s versus French Laundry, one of the best restaurants in the United States) and you see this concept applicable to the plastic surgery business. I stress the term business  and not medical field for a reason in this essay. I can safely say that most people that pursue higher education in any country do so to seek a better life, better pay and have more opportunities come their way. Of course, most scrupulous doctors experience immense satisfaction from treating their patients as well and, cynically speaking, are not simply in it for the financial award.

Like all professionals, doctors do seek out (and deserve) a certain financial reward for all the years of dedication, study, stress and life sacrifice they undergo in order to carry out their profession and deliver the best care they can to their patients. However, in this day and age of increasing competition and commoditization in all aspects of health care including plastic surgery, surgeons are forced to perform more surgeries at lower costs and possibly increased medical risk to patients. This alarming trend can especially be seen in plastic surgery where the end results of a hastily performed surgery are not hidden within a body cavity but are plainly visible on the face. Some of my colleagues brag about the speed at which they perform a surgery citing the many corners that they “cut” during an operation as unnecessary steps (no pun intended). I suppose they feel more akin to a Usain Bolt than that of a gifted watchmaker.

This brings me to the title of this blog post-The Lifestyle Lift. To the unsuspecting public this facelift is heavily marketed as a viable, simpler, safer, faster quality facelift at a fraction of the price. In fact, this facelift is an overly simplified distillation of pre-existing ideas wrapped in a new packaging as something brand-new and revolutionary. The one aspect that is revolutionary about this facelift is that it is one of the first surgeries that has been rebranded and marketed directly to the “consumer”. The company then refers the “consumer’ to one of their participating surgeons in the network to become a patient. Unfortunately, as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon board-certified by the American Board of plastic surgery, I have seen many results of this “Lifestyle Lift” that reek “cookie-cutter surgery” in which performance is measured in terms of speed and not quality.

I have seen many unacceptable, hideously widened scars most probably stemming from the fact that the surgeon did not perform a wide enough dissection to allow a tension-free closure (which is tantamount to a good scar). I have also consulted with many patients who were dismayed by how the “Lifestyle Lift” failed to meet their expected goals with incomplete treatment of their jowls, neck and midface.

While it is true that all surgeons have their small subset of unhappy patients either because of unrealistic expectations, sub-optimal results or unexpected complications, the large percentage of unhappy patients complaining of their “Lifestyle Lift” is too hard to ignore. For a good article on the subject that appeared in Plastic Surgery Practice.

The Injectable Nosejob

In the era of Twitter, Facebook, texting, rapid- fire music video editing, etc. everyone (including those not diagnosed with ADD) wants instant results. So what is unusual with wanting an instant nose job or rhinoplasty? Absolutely nothing. An instant nosejob is performed by strategically injecting a pre-chosen filler just below the nasal skin in an aesthetically sensitive manner. Temporary fillers such as Hyaluronic acids (Restylane™, Perlane™, Juvederm™, etc.) and calcium hydroxyappatite (Radiesse™) may be used as a “dress rehearsal” to confirm if the patients like their result. If so, many will then opt for a more permanent filler, either in the form of fat, Artefil ™ or Aquamid ™ (which is not yet FDA approved).

The appeal is obvious: less bruising, less prolonged swelling, less initial expense, less scary for the wary and more predictable (in the proper hands) with less risks. However, the injectable technique cannot be used to correct all types of cosmetic nasal problems and deformities. This is especially true for noses that need to be reduced in size and refined in shape. One does not need to be a genius to realize that fillers may do little to make a nose smaller by removing humps, refining tips and narrowing bones, no matter how well injected they are. The ideal candidate for an injectable rhinoplasty is the nose that needs to be augmented, either via it’s bridge (or dorsum) or it’s tip or both. A drooping tip can be elevated only to a subtle degree with filler.

Filler is also a great solution to those noses that have minor irregularities stemming from prior rhinoplasties. Filler will generally not help breathing problems. To learn more about this elegant solution to a rather common problem, check out these videos:
