Miss Plastic Surgery Beauty Pageant To Be Held in Hungary

beauty pageantA “Miss  Plastic Surgery” beauty pageant celebrating cosmetic surgery is being held on Qctober 9, 2009 in Budapest, Hungary.

Contestants can be now judged on cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, facelifts and liposuction.

Women competing in the “Miss Plastic Surgery” pageant,  must submit their medical records along with their vital statistics.

The contest is open to women between 18 and 30 years old who have undergone at least one cosmetic procedure that involved general or local anaesthesia.

The contest was started to boost the plastic surgery industry in Hungary, where cosmetic procedures still carry a stigma of artificiality. Pageant officials said the beauty of the contestants would demonstrate how the industry had advanced in recent years.

The judges are chosen from the best plastic surgeons in the country. There will be five judges choosing 24 finalists from a narrowed field of 50 women who have received cosmetic surgery. Internet users and media representatives get to choose one of the 24  heading to the finals as well.

The contest includes separate categories for:

  • Contestants between 18 and 30
  • Entrants over 30
  • The Joan Rivers category

The winner receives a new apartment. The first runner up gets a new car and the second runner up wins a vacation in Kenya.

Actress Daryl Hannah, age 48, looks like she has lost weight and has had recent plastic surgery.

She may have undergone liposuction as well as had various cosmetic surgery procedures to the face.

The latest photo from August 2009 shows a thinner and more youthful face. The difference is dramatic from the earlier before pictures!  This is some of the best work I have seen.  She looks good!

Plastic Surgery Allowed for Miss Universe Contestants

It has been estimated that 30 percent of Miss Universe contestants have had some sort of cosmetic work or plastic surgery done prior to the competition.

I would say that breast augmentation may be the most obvious.  We can’t say for certain which contestants have had actual cosmetic work done, but the women are beautiful.

According to a Fox News article: “A source close to the Donald Trump-owned Miss Universe Organization [says] that not only is elective [plastic] surgery allowed, but it is quietly encouraged.”

Did Paula Abdul Have Plastic Surgery?

Several plastic surgeons have speculated that Paula Abdul has had plastic surgery.

If  true, then she had absolutely flawless work done. So good job to the surgeons if it is true.

The following are comments that are strictly professional opinions.

Plastic surgeon Anthony Youn writes in his blog, “I see two major plastic surgery possibilities. First, her nose looks thinner and shorter, possibly due to a rhinoplasty. Second, her eyebrows appear to have that arched ‘Botox Brow’ look.”

Dr. Sherrell Aston in a feature article on stated, “I agree Paula Abdul appears to have had a rhinoplasty, upper and lower lid blepharoplasty, and breast augmentation. Her jaw line contour is very good for [her] age so it is possible she has had a short incision facelift…. She is pretty smooth between the eyebrows so I suspect a little Botox and she may have had subtle fillers.”

Their is still no word as to whether Paula Abdul will return to American Idol for season 9, but the season doesn’t air until January 2010. She has entertained multiple offers such as Dancing with the Stars and Australian Idol but has not accepted any new offers.

My bet is that there will be last minute negotiations and she will return to American Idol.

Marcus Davis New Plastic Surgery Stops Bleeding (Video)

Marcus Davis Martial Arts Fighter

Marcus Davis Martial Arts Fighter

When I read this story about Martial Arts fighter, Marcus Davis, on Plastic Surgery News, I went OMG! Now there is a new plastic surgery procedure that can minimize bleeding during a violent fight.

It’s amazing what one will subject themselves to in the name of their career, sport, etc. in  regards to one’s body and health. I thought I heard it all, but apparently not.

Plastic Surgery News reports that Marcus Davis, a mixed martial arts fighter and previous contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 2, is using an innovative plastic surgery technique to minimize bleeding from injuries sustained in the ring.

According to Plastic Surgery news a new kind of elective plastic surgery is being used as a way of minimizing bleeding that occurs during violent professional fights. Instead of simply managing scar tissue, some fighters claim, surgery could replace it and renew stability in facial areas that have been badly lacerated. This could give many professional fighters not just a way to bleed less when they do get hit – but also more confidence when they enter the ring.

Watch innovative plastic surgery video.

Marcus-Davis-240209A new surgical technique, still in development, could be just the thing for professional fighters who want to reduce how much they bleed in the ring.

Boxer and mixed martial arts fighter Marcus Davis is just one of many contact-sport athletes who recently have undergone elective plastic surgery to make their skin – especially skin on the face and around the eyes – less prone to bleeding when they get cut during a fight.

In Davis’ case, this involved slightly reducing the size of the bones around his eye sockets and then replacing scar tissue in that same area with collagen that had come from the skin of cadavers. Davis said the results made all the difference in his future fights.

This method is still pending analysis from medical researchers, and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has nothing to say about it until further testing is done.

Oprah & Dr. Oz Sue Acai Berry for False Claims

Dr Mehmet Oz and Oprah Winfrey

Dr Mehmet Oz and Oprah Winfrey

According to the Wall Street Journal, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Mehmet Oz are suing 30 companies, stating that these companies are selling products under false recommendations made by the talk show host and the Columbia University Medical Center doctor.

I’m sure many of you have received emails or have seen ads which state: “As seen on Oprah”.

I myself have seen products claiming weight loss, diet secrets, nutrition, anti aging, health and beauty enhancement just to name a few that use Oprah and Dr. Oz’s names to endorse their products allegedly without any permission.

One of the biggest false claims has been from Acai Berry.

Acai berry was marketed as the answer to weight loss, sexual dysfunction and even longer life. Whenever you add Oprah’s name to a product as an endorsement, it sells like wildfire. Customers are being duped because Oprah and Dr. Oz have no affiliation with these products, yet consumers are seeing Dr Oz’s face on these products.

Plaintiffs seek to stop the unauthorized and unlawful use of Dr. Oz’s and Ms. Winfrey’s names, pictures, voices and identities,” the lawsuit reads, according to The WSJ.

The lawsuit was filed in a U.S. District Court in New York City on Wednesday and claims these companies — selling dietary supplements, anti-wrinkle creams, tooth whitening and colon cleansers — were fabricating quotes from Winfrey and Dr. Oz, in addition to falsely endorsing in the voice of the TV personalities about the brands and products, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Dr. Oz was a popular guest on the Oprah show for many years and will be debuting his own program, called “The Dr. Oz Show,” on FOX, beginning on September 14.

Jessica Simpson Talks About Her Weight & Body Image

Jessica Simpson speaks out about her weight and body image plus her recent breakup with Dallas quarterback Tony Romo in a recent Glamour magazine interview.

“It’s not fair that women look in the mirror and feel disgust because of what society has made them believe about beauty. I’ve been through it myself and understand the pressures. We’re all facing the same struggles together, whether you’re a celebrity or not.”

“When I was young, I would look at magazines and feel a lot of pressure. As a child of 12, I would write things in my journal like, ‘I’m lying here and all I can think about is that my stomach is hanging over my underwear.’ That disturbs me even today!”

While she was still with Tony Romo at the time of the interview and photo shoot, Jessica had a  sense that a breakup was on the horizon. Read Full Story

Kelly Clarkson Talks About Being Overweight

It is obvious that Kelly Clarkson has gained a substantial amount of weight since her days on American Idol, but that doesn’t seem to bother Kelly.

Clarkson admits that she has never been concerned with her weight, but a recent cover photo of Kelly on the September issue of Self magazine has been retouched to make Clarkson appear thinner.

Kelly speaks out stating, “Of course celebrities have cellulite!.

“When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’,” Clarkson tells the September issue of Self.

Kelly also says, “My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more.”

As part of Clarkson’s exercise routine she plays golf (“I love it!”) as well as Crossfit workouts. “It’s like bootcamp!”, she states.

“You never work out more than 35 minutes, but it’s so intense … It makes me feel like G.I. Jane. It’s very empowering. I feel like I can whup ass!”

When Kelly exercises, it isn’t to lose weight. “I do it totally for my psyche,” she says. “I’m much better when those endorphins are going. It’s a release. And I also love food, so there’s a payoff!”

In regards to Kelly’s diet, “I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount,” she tells Self magazine.

“Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.”

“For me, it’s the times when I’m not paying attention that I end up losing weight. But I’m never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I’m just being!”

Heidi Montag Wants More Plastic Surgery

heidi-montag-breast-augmentationAccording to Fox News, Heidi Montag opened up to Playboy, in an interview conducted by her husband Spencer Pratt, about wanting more plastic surgery. She has already had breast augmentation and a nose job, but says she wants to “get a few more upgrades.”

“I think I want to go bigger on my boobs for [Spencer],” Montag said.

“When I was shopping for my boobs, I wanted the best, so I sat down and flipped through a bunch of Playboys … I’m sure as I get older I’ll need some touch-ups”

At the premiere of “G.I. Joe” last week, Heidi and Spencer posed with the September issue of Playboy, which features her on the cover in a white bikini and some strategically placed dirt. While she said it was a dream of hers to be a sex symbol, Montag did not pose nude, perhaps due to her “strict” Christian faith.

Montag addressed her critics by saying, “If women aren’t jealous of you, talking about you and cutting you down, then you’re a nerd, and I would never want to be that,” Heidi said.

Can Plastic Surgery Help Migraine Headaches?

Plastic surgeons have developed a modified version of the forehead lift to deactivate nerve triggers in this region with excellent results. In a recent study, which added more validation to this surgical approach, 75 migraine patients were assigned to two groups: 49 received the actual migraine surgery and 26 received a “placebo” surgery. None of the patients were told which group they’d been assigned to.

Those chosen for the real plastic surgery had some significant improvements: 83 percent had at least a 50 percent reduction in migraines after a year. And 57 percent reported a full elimination of migraines. Read full story
