What happens in rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is surgery that is undertaken to improve the shape or function of the nose; it’s commonly known as a nose job.

What happens in rhinoplasty?

Sometimes rhinoplasty is carried out for medical reasons, to correct someone’s breathing, or to realign defects caused during an accident, or at birth. Our noses always keep growing on our bodies, so surgery may need to be carried out later in life as the shape of the nose changes. Rhinoplasty can also be carried out for cosmetic reasons, with people who undergo the procedure claiming the surgery has a hugely positive impact on their lives, helping to improve their self-confidence.

The surgery

Usually with rhinoplasty you’re considered an outpatient, so you won’t have to stay in hospital overnight. You’ll either be given a local anaesthetic to numb the pain or a general anaesthetic to put you to sleep throughout the procedure. During surgery, the surgeon make cuts within the nostrils, usually inside of the nose to minimise scars after surgery. The inner bone and cartilage will be realigned to produce an appearance that the individual feels is more pleasing and in line with their expectations. In more complicated cases, the surgeon can also opt to make cuts along the base of the nose.

The recovery

For the first week after surgery, patients usually wear a nose splint to ensure the changes made to the nose are maintained. There is often swelling and bruising which occurs around the nose and the eyes in the days immediately after surrey, which is nothing to worry about about. Usually after the third day, this begins to improve, but depending on the surgery, it can take up to two weeks for this bruising to disappear.

Your nose will continue to decrease in swelling over the next 6 months, by which point you’ll be able to clearly assess the changes that have been made and see the full results of your surgery.

Interesting facts you didn’t know about rhinoplasty

Most people have heard of a rhinoplasty (nose reshaping),

Interesting facts you didn't know about rhinoplasty

and it is a procedure that is associated with many celebrities who are looking to improve their appearance.

However, here are a few things that you may not know about the procedure.

Ancient cosmetic surgery

It’s thought that the first rhinoplasty was carried out in India about 2,500 years ago! In the 18th century, a book was discovered that explained how a similar technique to those used today was used to repair noses that were cut off or damaged in battle. As a result of the discovery, the rhinoplasty was brought to England and has been carried out ever since.

Most popular

Rhinoplasty is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery of the millions of procedures carried out worldwide. Other cosmetic treatments in the top five include breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, and eyelid surgery.

It’s not ‘plastic’

A nose reshaping procedure is often referred to as ‘plastic’ surgery; however, skin and cartilage from other parts of the patient’s body are commonly used in order to carry out reconstructive work. Skin is usually taken from the forehead, whilst cartilage is removed from the rib area.

The term ‘plastic’ is actually derived from the Latin, ‘plasticus’ and the Greek, ‘plastikos’, meaning to shape or mould. The term was in use long before plastic was even invented!

Rhinoplasty – not just for cosmetic reasons

Although rhinoplasty is most commonly used for cosmetic reasons, it is also a technique that is employed to repair noses that have sustained damage due to accidents, birth defects or cancer. Medical issues, such as deviated septum, which can cause breathing difficulties, can also be corrected by rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is also used to help in cases of low self-esteem and depression where someone’s body image is crucial to their mental health and wellbeing.

Most people have rhinoplasty to correct the appearance of their nose, for example, cosmetic surgery can be used to make a short nose longer, to straighten a crooked one, or to flatten a pronounced Roman nose. However, the ancient procedure can also be used to treat some medical problems and to repair noses damaged as a result of disease or trauma.

Big Brother star has cosmetic surgery before the show

It’s become a common occurrence for housemates to treat themselves to cosmetic surgery after leaving Big Brother.

Big-Brother-star-has-surgery before the show

After all, many have to adjust to their newfound fame and life in the tabloids. However, this year one contestant has jumped the gun. The name Chanelle McCleary might sound familiar because she’s previously taken part in Ex on the Beach on MTV. While that experience didn’t quite catapult her to stardom, it did convince the 24-year-old that she should make some changes to her appearance.

The brunette has only been living with the other housemates for a matter of days but already she’s told them – as well as the rest of the nation – all about her history of going under the knife. During a recent episode on Channel 5, she didn’t mince her words as she spoke freely about splashing out £10,000 on her transformation.

She explained: “I had an operation only two months ago. My bum, I had that Brazilian bum lift. They took fat out my double chin, my back, my tummy and put it in my bum.” In addition to her Kardashian-esque bottom, Chanelle has treated herself to a pumped up pout and a wrinkle-free face. She added: “I’ve got filler in my lips. I had to get it dissolved it were too much. I tried Botox in my forehead. I liked it. I don’t really need it.”

Of course, you don’t have to be a celebrity – or on the verge of becoming famous – to undergo plastic surgery. This is a growing trend that is being seen, especially when it comes to Big Brother. For example, last year contestant Lateysha Grace had already undergone a bum lift before she stepped through the doors of the reality show house. Upon leaving the show, she set her sights on a catalogue of surgeries, including a boob job and a nose job.

Is cosmetic surgery for you?

These Big Brother girls are evidence that anyone and everyone is entitled to plastic surgery. So if you want to boost your self-esteem, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Belvedere for more information about the treatment you’re interested in.

Kylie Jenner’s plastic surgeries

Kylie Jenner is one of the most famous women on the planet and has transformed her look a number of times in her 19 years.

Kylie Jenner's plastic surgeriesKylie has often downplayed the procedures she’s had, mainly referencing her lips as the only piece of her body she’s touched, but by looking back at photos from the past few years and taking on board the comments of expert plastic surgeons, it seems she may have had a lot more cosmetic surgery than we originally thought!

Hips don’t lie

Between 2013 and 2015, Kylie’s hips appear to have grown significantly, and in such a way that is unlikely to be due to natural body growth. The widening of her hips accentuates her hourglass figure, nipping in her waist and adding extra curves to her body.

Inspired by?

It comes as no surprise that Kylie like her older famous sisters has invested in butt implants, to give her that famous Kardashian booty. The shape of her bum just couldn’t be sculpted by squats in the gym and looks to have been surgically enhanced to give her the enviable shape of her older sister Kim.

Luscious lips

One area of her body Kylie has openly said she has enhanced through cosmetic procedures is her lips. Whilst she initially tried to deny it by saying she simply used lip liner over her natural lip shape, she eventually decided to admit her extra-plump lips were down to collagen fillers. Now arguably her most famous asset, she has built a lip gloss and lipstick empire to show off her fabulously full lips.

Chest to impress

Kylie has denied ever having breast enhancement surgery, claiming a Victoria Secret push up bra is her secret for larger-looking breasts. The outfits and swimwear she wears, however, would add to disputes of this claim, as her breasts still keep their enhanced size when the miracle bra is nowhere to be seen. Like older sister Kourtney, it seems quite likely that Kylie has also invested in breast enlargement surgery.

If you love some of Kylie’s enhanced looks and want to make 2017 the year you transform yourself, why not contact The Belvedere today.

Famous male celebrities who have turned to cosmetic surgery

The list of famous men that have received plastic surgery is not a short one. As the pressure to stay eternally young intensifies, more men will have procedures carried out.

When showbiz journalists talk about celebrities that have received cosmetic surgery, more often than not their first port of call is to reference a woman.

This, unfortunately, is just part of the running theme in modern society, especially when it comes to scrutinising people in the public eye. Put simply, famous women are under more pressure than their male counterparts to have a nip and a tuck every so often.

That said, the list of famous men that have received plastic surgery is not a short one. As the pressure to stay eternally young intensifies, more men will have procedures carried out.

Famous male celebrities who have turned to cosmetic surgeryHere’s a taste of just a few famous men and the work they have had done.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

The former pro wrestler-turned-movie star has gone under the knife for the opposite procedure to what most women would consider — a breast reduction.

As is the case with so many men of Samoan heritage, Johnson was particularly heavy-chested in his younger years. These days, his chest is way more defined, and evidence of Breast reduction surgery ( gynecomastia ) is visible to the naked eye.

Alan Sugar

The star of The Apprentice UK has had eyelid surgery to add a touch of youth to his ageing complexion. Sugar, who formerly owned Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, had the treatment carried out in the United States ten years ago.

The London-born billionaire even admits to using the infamous “do you know who I am?” line. That’s right, Sugar used his fame to skip his way to the top of the surgeon’s six-month waiting list.

Sylvester Stallone

Now 70 years of age, ‘Sly’ has been able to remain a Hollywood A-lister by staying in great physical condition. However, he appears to have had a considerable amount of help from the plastic surgeon as well.

The star of the Rocky, Rambo and Expendables movies has a noticeably more square jawline than in his younger years, while there is strong speculation of facelifts and an eyebrow lift. Stallone has never admitted to any surgery but the speculation never ends — and the before-and-after pics certainly don’t lie!

Danniella Westbrook’s cosmetic surgery plans

Former Eastenders actress Danniella Westbrook has opened up on Twitter about her plans to invest in some cosmetic procedures this year.

Danniella-Westbrook's-Cosmetic Surgery PlansThe 43 year old tweeted last week, saying: “Can’t wait to go to Poland on the 6th of June. Face lift, boobs and teeth being sorted! About time after a year of hell.”

It has indeed been a tough year for the actress, who split from her partner, George Arnold, suffered a tragic miscarriage and relapsed in her battles with addiction – but overhauling her image is the next step for this feisty Essex girl to reclaim her life.

Most recently, she’s spent time in a rehab facility in Spain, where she’s been fighting to get her addiction under control once and for all. She claims that her drug habit has made her look older than her years, and first mentioned undergoing cosmetic surgery back in 2015. She says that having rebuilt herself on the inside, it’s time for her to rebuild herself on the outside with procedures on her face, teeth and breasts to improve her self-confidence and to help her feel as good as she has in the past about her appearance.

It’s one of the most common reasons for people to undergo plastic surgery; a lack of confidence about external features which can be internalised and damage self esteem. It’s brave of actresses like Danniella who are in the public eye to speak out about celebrity cosmetic surgery, as it helps to normalise procedures for other people. By talking openly about past and future procedures, Danniella is helping others to see the truth that many celebrities look the way they do not only because they eat well and exercise lots, but also because they have a little help from their favourite surgeon, reducing the pressures we all feel about body image.

Whether you’ve got a few extra pounds you’d like to shed with a tummy tuck, or you’ve always been self-conscious about your breasts, plastic surgery can help to reveal a new and more confident version of yourself. Get in touch to find out more about the procedures we offer at The Belvedere Clinic.

Josie Gibson flaunts the results of her tummy tuck

Josie_Gibson_2015 Tummy tuckBig Brother winner Josie Gibson has been flaunting the results of her tummy tuck.

The starlet – famed for winning the reality show in 2010 – is a notorious yo-yo dieter who has battled the bulge for many years. Now in the best shape of her life, the 32-year-old underwent the surgical procedure back in November to remove the excess skin from her body. This week she’s let the world see a glimpse of her transformation by sharing a revealing picture on social media. Along with the image, she wrote: “So happy with the results of my abdominoplasty in September. Scar is amazing and healing nicely.”

Last year, Josie freely spoke about her decision to go under the knife, revealing that she had actually been considering the procedure for three years. The reality star told New magazine: “I lost a lot of weight and had all this loose skin. I’ve been debating a tummy tuck since 2013, but I’ve always been too scared. Then there was a big debate about me having children.”

The tummy tuck isn’t the first cosmetic surgery that Josie has undergone since she shot to stardom seven years ago. Just a few years after being named the winner of Big Brother, she had a boob job to go from a size B to a DD. Discussing the breast enlargement, Josie gushed: “I feel so sexy. They just make me look a bit more like a woman instead of a Neanderthal. I was umming and ahhing about the size of them. I was going to go to a C, then a D, then a DD, but I think for my height and my frame, a C wouldn’t have made a difference. I didn’t want them too big because I still want to train hard. Now they’re not too big and they’re not too little – they’re perfect.”

Do you want to look amazing?

Josie isn’t the only one who has the ability to transform their body. Instead, anyone can alter their appearance with the help of the Belvedere Clinic. For more information on choosing a procedure that’s right for you, get in touch today.

Want bigger boobs – what are your options?

If you’ve always longed for bigger boobs, you might be considering undergoing a breast augmentation procedure. So, what are your options?

Want bigger boobs - what are your options?

Breast augmentation surgery

The traditional surgical enhancement of your breasts involves having a saline or silicone implant inserted beneath your existing breast tissue. The results are immediate and you can choose the size and shape of the end result.

The procedure will be carried out under a general anaesthetic in hospital or in a properly equipped cosmetic surgery clinic. You’ll need a few weeks to recover from the surgery and there will be some discomfort, swelling and bruising that will vanish quickly to leave you with beautiful new boobs.

Fat grafting

An alternative to implants is fat grafting. Fat is removed from areas of your body where it is plentiful and it’s then implanted into your breasts. This procedure is generally used to improve the appearance of the breasts, rather than just to make them bigger.

Stem cell implants

Stem cell implantation is a relatively new procedure and was originally used for reconstructive surgery in women who had undergone mastectomy following cancer treatment. The procedure is now widely used as an alternative to traditional implants.

The stem cells are taken from the fat of the thighs or stomach. The stem cells are then grown in a lab and injected into the breast tissue where they rapidly multiply and eventually grow to form new breast tissue. The result is a natural-looking and feeling breast.

Recovery is pretty much instantaneous as the procedure is only minimally invasive. However, it’s only possible to increase breast size by one cup size and no uplift or firming effect can be achieved. In addition, it can take a few months before any results are seen and the procedure itself is usually around twice as expensive as a traditional boob job.

Get the look you’ve always wanted

If you’ve always longed for bigger breasts, there are a few alternatives available to the traditional boob job. For more information on how you could achieve the celebrity figure you’ve always dreamed of, why not have a chat with the cosmetic surgery experts at Belvedere Clinic today.

Baywatch and Plastic Surgery

Baywatch is set to be the hottest film of the summer.

Baywatch-and-Plastic-Surgery

The upcoming movie – based on the hit television show that ran from 1989 to 1999 – will hit cinemas later this month with the lead roles taken up by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron.

The film has many fans of the franchise wondering what happened to the original cast – and whether they have managed to maintain those drop dead gorgeous bodies that made them famous in the first place.

Well, it turns out that Donna D’Errico – famed for playing Donna Marcoon on the show – has undergone quite a transformation over the past few months. Once again under the gaze of the public, the 49-year-old has improved her body with a number of cosmetic procedures. Among the treatments that she underwent include an arm lift, liposuction to her stomach, back and arms, a bum enhancement and a tummy tuck.

Donna’s been happy to document the results – even going as far as to go under the knife in front of the cameras. Speaking of the intimate pictures that have been released online, Donna explained: “I went to see Dr. Obeng because I had excess skin on my upper arms from having gained and lost weight. ‘I also had quite a bit of excess skin on my stomach from having had two children.”

Of course, Donna isn’t the only former cast member from the original series to have gone under the knife. The long list of stars includes the likes of Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra, both of whom had a boob job to enhance the size of their chests. Somewhat ironically, actress Charlotte McKinney – who stars as a lifeguard in the upcoming movie – is actually considering having a breast reduction because she believes her boobs are naturally too big. The 23-year-old recently revealed: “If that’s what makes you feel better, then got for it.”

Fancy becoming a beach babe?

The world of cosmetic surgery extends well beyond the cast of Baywatch. In fact, you could find a procedure that’s perfect for you. For more information, get in touch with the Belvedere Clinic today.

Ex on the Beach stars lead the way with cosmetic surgery

The cast of Ex on the Beach have many doors opened for them – including the opportunity for cosmetic surgery to perfect their appearance.

ex-on-the-beach-cosmetic-surgery

Ex on the Beach is currently one of the biggest reality shows on television. In fact, it’s so popular that anyone who takes part is quickly destined for a career in front of the cameras and on the red carpet.

Jemma Lucy is the latest star to have turned to cosmetic surgery after her stint in front of the cameras on MTV. The brunette beauty has treated herself to a Brazilian bum lift, the same procedure that Kim Kardashian is rumoured to have undergone. Jemma officially revealed the news with a video to her followers on Snapchat. She joyously announced: “I’m excited because I’m going to have a big bum and I’m going to shake it all the time, and it’s going to be a bubble butt.”

Meanwhile, Chanelle McCleary has overhauled her image after appearing on the reality series earlier this year. The starlet is reported to have signed up for the upcoming season of Celebrity Big Brother and is taking no chances when it comes to her looks. A friend told The Sun: “Chanelle has gone all out and had liposuction on her chin, stomach, waist, thighs and back. She loves the idea of having a peachy bum bottom so she also had a Brazilian bum lift while she was there. Chanelle’s also had fillers and Botox to help define her cheekbones and smooth out any lines.”

Of course, Jemma and Chanelle aren’t the first Ex on the Beach stars to undergo cosmetic surgery – and they probably won’t be the last. In 2015, Laura Alicia Summers started the trend by treating herself to a number of treatments. She later defended her decision, writing: “I love the way I look and I love the way my life is, it’s made me a stronger person and I have no regrets.”

It’s easy to follow their lead

Ex on the Beach stars aren’t the only ones worthy of cosmetic surgery. In fact, you can get in on the action just as easily if you’re not 100 per cent happy with your appearance. For more information on the options available to you, contact The Belvedere today.
