MEXICO CITY – Alejandra Guzman, a popular Mexican rock singer, reports she has been hospitalized with an infection as a result of buttocks injections she had in order to make herself “more beautiful.”

Ralph Lauren Model Filippa Fired For Being Too Fat

NEW YORK CITY, NY – After eight years working for top fashion designer, Ralph Lauren, model Filippa Hamilton was fired because her agent was informed that she could no longer fit into her employer’s clothes. If one would ask most people at random they would most likely not describe her as being “fat”, rather the word would more likely be “gorgeous.” Still, the 23 year old, 5-foot-10-inch, 120-pound Swedish model says that this was the reason why she was fired by Ralph Lauren.

Liposuction Used By Cancer Patients For Breast Reconstructive Surgery

Cancer patients are now able to have breast reconstruction after surgery with a new form of liposuction. Ten cancer patients at Singleton Hospital in Swansea located in Wales are the first to benefit from this new procedure.

Fat is taken from around the stomach or thighs and processed with a new machine, which uses stem cells to help the fat survive.

The fat is then re-injected into the body where the original tumour was removed from the breast.

The new procedure is only available at a few centers in the UK. This new liposuction procedure is less invasive than traditional breast reconstructive surgery which is a major operation involving a stay of several days in the hospital.

Samantha Ward-Jones, 39, who wanted to repair damage from the removal of a tumour from her breast two years ago, was the first of the patients at Singleton to have the treatment.

“To be able to be part of something so new and so revolutionary was just very exciting,” said Ms Ward-Jones. “I felt it was the end of a bad period in my life and something positive.”

“It was a very hard thing to have breast cancer and have the operation and have the tumour removed,” she adds.

“To feel whole again and feel back to normal like I was two years ago is incredible.”

According to consultant oncoplastic surgeon Nader Khonji, the new technique has a higher success rate because of the innovative use of stem and regenerative cells from the fat.

“The fat that’s removed is put into the machine for processing,” Mr Khonji explained.

“This machine uses a special enzyme to break down the tissue and spins it to concentrate the stem cells – the crucial cells that contain growth factors for the new growth of blood vessels.”

Those cells are then mixed back in remaining fat and re-injected into the breast a far quicker procedure than conventional breast reconstruction, which involves moving muscle tissue from the patient’s back.

Shirley Redden, who also underwent the procedure, said: “It’s about self-esteem.”

Mrs Redden, who wanted breast reconstruction following a lumpectomy two years ago, said: “I might be older, but I’ve still got pride.

“I’m hoping this will help make me feel better and get over the trauma of treatment. When it is done, I’ll feel like a woman again.”

If treatment of the first 10 patients continues to be successful, it is hoped that the new procedure can be developed in the future for patients needing whole breast reconstruction after mastectomy, instead of using conventional implants.

Mesotherapy Still the Most Popular Cellulite Treatment

Mesotherapy in the hands of a qualified specialist is a relatively safe procedure. Mesotherapy uses a combination of traditional and homeopathic medicine and vitamins which are are injected into the area being treated. Common area of treatment include the chin, buttocks, thighs, abdomen and arms. Read about mesotherapy side effects.

Mesotherapy has been featured on such television shows as 48 Hours, The View, 20/20, and in national newspapers such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, and USA Today, as well as many woman’s magazines including People Magazine, W Magazine, Allure, Elle, among others.

Mesotherapy has been used for bodysculpting as an alternative to liposuction. Mesotherapy can shrink belly fat, double chins, saddlebags and bra bulge. For some it is a reasonable alternative to surgery to shrink fat underneath the eyes. As a cellulite treatment mesotherapy has no peers. Cottage cheese and dimpling fade away. Many believe mesotherapy to be far, far superior to endermology or any laser treatment.

Facial mesotherapy using vitamins and hyaluronic acid can create glow and really rejuvenate. In many instances the Mesolift or Mesoglow can be performed two or three days BEFORE your daughter’s or grand daughter’s wedding for a healthy radiant glow. (Even the Bride can be treated!)

You will be surprised to learn that mesotherapy is not a new procedure. It has actually been performed in Europe for over 50 years. It was developed by the French physician Michel Pistor, M.D. to treat a variety of health ailments. Over the course of time, his colleagues in both Europe and South America discovered the mesotherapy was amazingly effective in handling cosmetic problems formally confined to the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery.

With the explosion in awareness about cosmetic enhancement many people are looking for a kinder, gentler way. Less is more. Mesotherapy seems to fit that bill.
