Linda Robson makes plastic surgery u-turn as she eyes up neck lift

It was only last year when Linda Robson vowed she’d never have plastic surgery.

Fast-forward less than 12 months and the actress is already having second thoughts. The television star – famed for her role in Birds of a Feather – has revealed that she’s now seriously considering undergoing a neck lift. In fact, Linda has already been in touch with a surgeon to discuss the ins and outs of the procedure.

The 59-year-old revealed all during a recent episode of Loose Women. She told her fellow panellists that she’d been driven to take action after years of feeling self-conscious about her neck. Linda explained: “I’ve always had a thing about my neck. My mum gave it to me. She’d say ‘you looked lovely on telly but shame about your neck’.”

Linda then joked that she had a ‘turkey neck’ – and was looking to get rid of it by going under the knife. She added: “If I look at a picture of me I can’t see my face, I can only see my neck. It’s a turkey neck. I’ve started wearing scarves.”

Last year Linda said that she’d weighed up the pros and cons of having work done on her ‘drooping eyes’ during an interview with the Sunday Mirror. However, she was ultimately put off the idea because of her husband and son.

She did, however, see the benefits of plastic surgery first-hand when she accompanied Linda Nolan for her facelift on Loose Women in 2017. She asked Nolan why she was going through with the procedure, only to receive an honest and heartfelt answer. Nolan told her: “I look into the mirror and I see sadness looking back at me and that’s no longer how I feel inside.”

Nolan added: “My face has been through a lot with me and I can see that. I look so old, worn and drained and just so, so sad.

“Ten years ago I was happy and I looked happy and I want to look like that Linda again. I want to look the way I feel and I’m really excited to see the results.”

Have you changed your mind?

It seems more and more people are coming round to the idea of plastic surgery – even those who have previously been against it. If you’ve changed your mind and think that it might be for you, don’t hesitate to find out more about the procedures available to you at the Belvedere Private hospital.



Recent study claims that cosmetic surgery can make you more likeable.

There are many reasons to go under the knife. This includes the hope that it will lead to a boost to your self-confidence or that it will land you your dream job.

Want to be more likeable? Plastic surgery could be the answer
It now turns out that there’s another great reason to try cosmetic surgery – and that’s the fact that it can make you more likeable.

According to research carried out at Georgetown University School of Medicine, men and women are often deemed to appear more likeable, trustworthy and social after undergoing work. The study – published in the JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery – was conducted with the portraits of 30 women who’d had surgery. A total of 130 people were asked to respond to the images in a survey – seeing shots from both before and after the procedures.

Discussing the findings, professor Michael Reill said: “Our animal instinct tells us to avoid those who are ill-willed and we know from previous research that personality traits are drawn from an individual’s neutral expressions.”

The study found that eye lifts made the biggest difference to the perception of a person’s personality. In particular, this was put down to the fact that people generally look others in the eyes to determine their initial opinion on them.

Professor Reilly added: “This may explain why the patients who had a lower eyelift were found to be significantly more attractive and feminine, and experienced improved trustworthiness scores.”

It seems celebrities have long clocked on to the fact that cosmetic surgery can leave them in better standing with the public. This is certainly true for glamour model Danielle Lloyd, who recently had dermal fillers after being targeted by online trolls.

A statement by Danielle’s rep said: “Danielle has made no secret of the fact that she’s been the target of extreme online trolling and bullying. As a result of which, she has been left feeling very self-conscious about her looks.”

Is it for you?

The prospect of becoming more likeable is just one of the many reasons to undergo plastic surgery. Get in touch with Belvedere to discuss your options and find a procedure that’s right for you.

As Jane Seymour poses for Playboy, what surgery has she had done?

As Jane Seymour poses for Playboy, what surgery has she had done?Hollywood legend Jane Seymour has just made history.

The actress – famed for being one of the most recognisable ‘Bond Girls’ ever – has just become the oldest woman to grace the pages of Playboy.

It’s a remarkable feat that’s got the whole world talking. The question is: how does Jane still manage to look so perfect at the tender age of 67. Well, it just so happens that the starlet has a history of going under the knife.

It was back in 2011 when Jane first lifted the lid on having plastic surgery. The leading lady confessed that she’d had a boob job after becoming a mother. In an interview with Mail Online, she revealed: “It was 20 years ago. I’d breastfed my first two children and things weren’t what they had been. I’d never had a big bust — I always say they had to make smaller implants just for me, but I wanted the shape back. Clothes fit and look better. It was a good move.”

During the same interview, Jane refused to rule out the possibility of one day having a face lift. Instead, she said ‘never say never’ when asked about if she would one day undergo the procedure. If Jane were to commit to the operation, it would be the second time that she’s had work done on her face – the first being when she had an eyelift.

Jane discussed the procedure on television when she spoke with Lorraine Kelly in 2016. She explained that she’d come to feel that the work would have benefits for her career and make things easier for other people who she works with. She elaborated: “[The eye lift] was more than a decade ago. Genetically, I had baggy eyes and photographers said they didn’t want to spend money endlessly having to eradicate them.”

Make history like Jane!

Jane is still doing some remarkable things at the age of 67 – and it’s partly down to plastic surgery. If you fancy following in her footsteps, you could also benefit from going under the knife too. Just get in touch with Belvedere to discuss any of the procedures that you might fancy.

Kaley Cuoco praises cosmetic surgery

But a lesser known fact is that her sexy looks are far from natural. Getting plastic surgery has opened up so many opportunities for Kaley, both in her career as an actress and in her love life too.

It’s these surgery created looks that have gotten her the roles that helped her win the Satellite, Critics’ Choice, and People’s Choice Awards. She knows that in Hollywood you have to look great to get the part.

Luckily for her she had the foresight to get a little help along the way. She has called getting plastic surgery “the best thing I ever did.” She goes on to say: “As much as you want to love your inner self… I’m sorry, you also want to look good.” It’s this desire to look her best that first sparked her decision to get a nose jobbreast augmentation and a round of lip fillers. She has never looked back.

For over a decade Kaley has made audiences laugh around the world playing her iconic character Penny on the Chuck Lorre-created comedy, The Big Bang Theory. She has become so successful from this role that she now earns $200,000 per episode.

She showed off her new look during her steamy modelling shoot for Maxim, which got international attention. With her improved face and body she clearly has a lot more confidence in herself. She’s sexy and she knows it. The procedure has done wonders for her love life too. She was recently filmed cuddling up with her new fiancé, Karl Cook during an awards show. Cuoco got engaged to her handsome horse rider boyfriend on her 32nd birthday and has not looked so happy in years.

Kaley has clearly reaped the rewards that plastic surgery has given her and encourages other women to enhance themselves too. As she says: “If it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.” This advice is something that all women who want to feel great about themselves should listen to.

People are using plastic surgery to get them through a divorce

The end of a marriage can be make or break for some people.

People are using plastic surgery to get them through a divorce
Luckily, many men and women have begun to clock on to the fact that the single life isn’t so scary if you first enjoy a spot of plastic surgery. Cosmetic procedures are therefore very popular amongst individuals going through the divorce courts.

According to the Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group, the act of going under the knife can help rebuild a person’s self-esteem. Spokesperson Shami Thomas said: “Many divorcees look to cosmetic surgery as a fresh start in a newly-single world and want to regain the confidence they had in their appearance when they were younger.” She added: “When divorcees come into money following a separation, they are financially independent and are able to invest in themselves.”

Meanwhile, JMW Solicitors in Manchester have confirmed that a number of their clients are skilled at juggling the joys of cosmetic surgery with the lows of legal proceedings. Partner Sam Hall told the Telegraph: “Over the last few years, we have noticed that cosmetic surgery has become a particular, recurrent factor in divorce.”
He added: “The incidence could be even larger because we might not be told of every case of this kind. Generally, women who have acknowledged treatments, including liposuction, rhinoplasty and breast enlargements, say that have had them as their marriages or divorces were drawing to a close.”

Brad Pitt is a fine example of a celebrity who began to consider cosmetic surgery after his marriage began to fall apart. The actor – who wed Angelina Jolie in 2014 – is reported to have started weighing up his options after the relationship broke down. In September 2017, a source told In Touch: “Brad’s upset about how his eyelids are sagging. He’s ready to go under the knife because he says the divorce to Angie has taken a toll on his looks.”

Are you newly-single?

If your relationship has hit the rocks and you’re looking for a fresh start then you could possibly benefit from plastic surgery. Whether you have your heart set on a procedure or are still deciding what’s best for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Belvedere.

Will newly-single Jennifer Aniston now get plastic surgery?

Jennifer Aniston is once again back on the market.

Will newly-single Jennifer Aniston now get plastic surgery?

The actress – famed for playing Rachel in Friends – has split from her husband Justin Theroux after just two-and-a-half years. Now the big question is whether she’ll finally bite the bullet and treat herself to plastic surgery.

Jen has never been one to shoot down the possibility of going under the knife. In fact, she’s previously said ‘never say never’ – before insisting that her soon-to-be ex-husband was the reason that she hadn’t already moved ahead with a procedure. In 2014, she frankly told Yahoo beauty editor-in-chief Bobbi Brown: “I also have a fiancé who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”

The actress later reiterated the same sentiments during an interview with E! News. She told the media outlet: “I’m never saying I would not do anything.” She then added: “[Justin] is not a fan of it, no.”

Jen seemingly stopped taking Justin’s opinion on board as early as last month. After all, she was reported to have been eyeing up a boob job just a few short weeks after Christmas. According to reports, she’d begun to feel ‘self-conscious’ about her breasts when wearing swimwear.

A source close to the star told OK!: “Jen’s been upset about her sagging boobs for a while.” The insider added: “Jen felt really self-conscious in her bikinis. She’s always prided herself on having a tight body, but now she thinks she could use a surgical pick-me-up.”

Any upcoming surgical procedures wouldn’t be the first time the world has seen a noticeable difference in Jen’s appearance. In 2007 she admitted to having a nose job after suffering from a deviated septum. She told People: “It’s funny. I had [a deviated septum] fixed – best thing I ever did. I slept like a baby for the first time in years.”

Time will tell

Newly-single Jennifer is now free to do whatever she likes when it comes to plastic surgery. If you fancy following in her footsteps and want to discuss a possible procedure, get in touch with the Belvedere.

Kerry Katona is now eyeing up a breast Lift

Kerry Katona has revealed that she’s eyeing up a Breast Lift.


The singer – famed for her time in Atomic Kitten admitted that she’s considering the operation after losing three stone. According to Kerry, the weight loss has made her breasts ‘sag’ and she’s now up for going under the knife to sort it out. She recently told Closer magazine: “I would love a boob uplift because my boobs sag a bit due to my weight loss, so why not?”.

Of course, Kerry is no stranger to plastic surgery and she famously overhauled her image with the help of Belvedere in 2016. Beforehand, the reality star told the world just why she undergoing a tummy tuck and liposuction. She revealed to OK! Magazine: “I just want to feel good and happy. I’m having some liposuction at the Belvedere Clinic in Kent very soon.” She added: “I’ll probably get criticised for not being a good role model but it’s something that I want to do!”

Following the procedures, Kerry was adamant that they were not as invasive as some people might imagine. Instead, she compared the surgery to going for an eye test. She wrote on her social media channels: “It’s like going for an eye test these days! How very showbiz.”

Cosmetic surgery is rather common in Kerry’s circles. For instance, ex-husband Brian McFadden recently had a hair transplant. Meanwhile, former bandmate Natasha Hamilton spoke freely about having lip fillers and a boob job back in 2016. She told Closer magazine: “I’m at an age where I feel it’ll help – and I want to feel good about myself.” The redhead also refused to rule out the possibility of going under the knife once again in future. She added: “I’d never say never to more surgery but I don’t have anything planned.”

Will you follow in Kerry’s footsteps?

Kerry is happy to sing the praises of plastic surgery. If you’re keen to see what all the fuss is about for yourself, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Belvedere.  You’ll be able to discuss the range of procedures as you decide on the right one for you.


TOWIE’s James Lock treats himself to two cosmetic procedures in just one month

TOWIE’s James Lock has shown the world that it can be a case of ‘the more the merrier’ when it comes to cosmetic surgery.


That’s because the reality star has treated himself to not one but TWO cosmetic procedures in the space of a month. In both cases, he’s been proud to tell the world exactly what he’s had done in his bid to boost his self-esteem.

James-lock-hair-transplantIn January, the 31-year-old underwent a hair transplant to restore his luscious locks. He was barely out of recovery when he shared the pictures with his huge fan base on social media. Alongside one image, James admitted he had no regrets about the procedure.

He wrote: “I went and had hair reconstruction surgery as this is something I have always wanted to do for myself as I have always been a bit self-conscious of my hairline. I am currently in the healing process so cannot see my results yet but can already tell it’s going to look how I’ve always wanted.”

James has now been spotted with bandages around his head. Quick to set people straight, he’s explained that it’s the result of long-desired ear correction surgery. James has said that this operation – along with the hair transplant – are the cause of ‘childhood insecurities’ that have followed him into his adult life.

He told the Sun: “Some people think I’m having an early midlife crisis, but I’m not. I have had a couple of insecurities since I was a kid about my ears and my hairline.” He added: “I’m a believer if something bothers you then fix it. So this is the price I have paid to make me feel good about myself, and for my body confidence.”


The only way is surgery?

For James Lock, the only way to achieve happiness was to undergo cosmetic surgery. It’s clear that he has no regrets about his decision and is feeling more confident than ever. If you’re thinking that you could benefit from a similar procedure then get in touch with Belvedere. Much like James, you could finally get rid of the insecurities that have been plaguing you for your whole life.


Cosmetic surgery: give yourself a lift

It’s something we are all concerned about and even if you are someone that is lucky enough to be told, ‘you’re gorgeous’ and don’t need to improve your looks, you may still secretly want or feel that you need some help to change an aspect or two about how you look, for it could give you that extra bit of confidence.


You are not alone

Whether it is a cosmetic surgery procedure like a breast augmentation or having a facial filler to ease out some troublesome wrinkles, you are not alone. The beauty industry and, in particular the cosmetic surgery industry, are booming and the numbers are increasing all the time, especially as people have more disposable income and there is not the stigma of admitting you’ve had some work done like there used to be.

Many celebrities now openly talk about their latest cosmetic surgeries, such as Kerry Katona about her liposuction, or James ‘Arg’ Argent on his rhinoplasty (nose job), and how it has made them feel better about themselves. Why shouldn’t you have that too?

Making the investment

You may not be a celebrity, but if having a tummy tuck or having breast implants improves your confidence and makes you view yourself in a far more beautiful way then make the investment. The chances are that with the boost it gives you, you may do better in your work and life, giving you better choices and opportunities in the future.

However, you should do your research, have a full consultation about what you want doing, and acknowledge all the pros and cons involved because some of these procedures can be very life-changing, so you need to be able to deal with that. But once the work is done and you check yourself out in the mirror you are bound to like what you see. It is very much a case of beauty is in the eye of the beholder, in this case you, but also you know that beauty has come from within you too, as you had the strength and purpose to make that change for the better.

For the first steps to becoming a new you, contact our friendly team here at the Belvedere Clinic, for expert advice and assistance in becoming who you want to be.

Brian McFadden feels ‘amazing’ after having hair transplant

Brian McFadden feels ‘amazing’ after having hair transplant

Brian McFadden has confessed that he feels ‘amazing’ after undergoing a hair transplant.

The Westlife star – once married to plastic surgery fan Kerry Katona – went through with the hair restoration procedure over the weekend. The singer clearly had no problems letting the world know afterwards because he shared pictures and videos of himself on social media as he recovered. One joy-filled tweet simply read: “So glad I finally done something about it. Feel amazing today!”

The 37-year-old also elaborated on his reason for undergoing the cosmetic procedure – citing that he had begun to feel ‘self-conscious’ as a result of his receding hairline. Sharing an image of himself with his followers on Instagram, he captioned it: “The last few years my hair line has been thinning and receding due to my lifestyle and the general stresses we go through in life. It’s been really making me self conscious and uncomfortable so I decided to do something about it.”

Brian certainly isn’t the first famous face to take action when it came to his hair. In fact, a number of celebrity men have undergone the same procedure in the last 12 months alone. The list includes Love Island star Alex Beattie and Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson – just to name a few!

Last year, X Factor star turned actor Jake Quickenden seemingly paved the way for Brian. Not only did he have a hair transplant, he also shared his explanation for doing so with his fans on Instagram. Much like Brian, 29-year-old Jake confessed he was driven to act because of his growing ‘insecurities’. He wrote: “I’ve sorted my hairline out after years of insecurities, people might say your hair was fine and didn’t need it, but after years of being really worried about losing my hair, I took the dive and did something about it!”

Can you benefit?

Hair transplants are clearly becoming more popular and more acceptable amongst men of all ages. Whether you have noticed things thinning up top or whether you’ve been balding for while, you could benefit from the same procedure. For more information, get in touch with Belvedere.
