Lip Plastic Surgery: Pros and Cons

Thursday, 25 June 2009

lip plastic surgeryAs the glamour magazines say, Victoria Backham, Scarlett Johanson, Angelina Jolie, Kylie Minogue and Keira Knightley are first among the fortunate and proud owners of plump sexy lips. There's no surprise, then, that the lips of these women are the most frequently «copied» by plastic surgeons. So, is there really a way to have «Angelina's lips» and is the result worth the effort?

Lips correction helps to restore the lost youth, enhance overall beauty of the face, get rid of hereditary and acquired defects, and radically change their shape. According to the purpose, the correction may be surgical and contour.

Surgical correction is an operative lips correction procedure providing a complete change of lips shape. Indications are manifold - a harelip, different deformities, neoplasms, lip asymmetry, and absolute turn-down of the natural shape of the lips.

This type of surgery requires great precision. It is performed with a lancet under the general anesthesia. The bandage is taken away in 10-15 days; the scar is almost invisible and is easily camouflaged with lipstick. The scar is practically absent when minimal intervention is made, however, in most cases it remains. And needless to say that surgical correction for solely esthetics reasons (reshaping the lips and making them look more sexy and attractive) is not approved by physicians.

To reshape the lips by enhancing their volume contour plastic is performed. The goal of this procedure is not only fuller lips but also the lifting of hanging corners of the mouth, the correction of age-induced wrinkles and the accentuation of lip contours. A filling material is injected into the lips under local anesthesia. The result we can see every day on TV. Swelling after the procedure heels in several weeks, there are no scars but the effect is non-durable: the procedure must be repeated in a year. There are a lot of gel types, the effect and its permanence depends upon the material chosen.

However, contour plastic has several disadvantages, the effect of rejection being first of those. It happens when gel turns out to be antagonistic to the body. Complications arise due to injections below the lips. Possibilities include infections, skin necrosis, tissue deformation, swelling or other problems. Immediate surgical intervention is needed. The problem is that neither expensive gel, nor skilled surgeon or clinic with spotless reputation can guarantee 100% positive effect.

Another disadvantage is that nowadays there are a lot of materials of doubtful quality which are used even in the well-known clinics. The deplorable consequences become known afterwards - from TV news and photos in the newspapers. Poor quality material may be very harmful to the health and deprive a woman of natural beauty she only wished to retouch.

Yet another disadvantage is that almost all «fake lips» look similar. After the procedure the lips in most cases acquire a distinguishing shape, unnatural origin of which immediately strikes the eye. That's why Jolie's lips can hardly be copied. Besides, girls rarely think plump lips would not be a good match, although, such lips look natural only when all facial features are large.

It may also be the case that the results do not meet the expectations and the treatment must be repeated. The transplantation of one's own body fat tissue, or lipofilling, may cause other complications. First, the procedure is performed under the general anesthesia, and the number of prospective patients diminishes. Second, after one session less than a half of transplanted fat cells survive, besides, they survive nonuniformly, that's why the surface of the lips becomes bruised with the formation of small bubbles. The procedure is to be repeated several times and the effect is permanent.

In short, there are a lot of possibilities to change one's appearance, but ask yourself is the game is worth the candle. Would you be happy when you pay several thousand dollars, get two-weeks swelling and possible complications but appear on the public with «new variation of celebrity lips»? After all, pay attention to the fact that supermodels who are appreciated thanks to their faces, allow no intrusions into their individuality.

Neither fashion, nor apery may be a cause of a crucial appearance change. The surgery may be undertaken only if you're really ready for change and aware that new lips would absolutely transform the face, its expression and gestures. This approach is good when one really likes this new face, only nature has made a small mistake...

Balenciaga: from the Royal Court to the Outer Space

Irrespective of the period when they were created, designs by the world-famous brand Balenciaga have been too bold and avant-garde for their time. Not explicitly provoking or overpowered by vivid colors, rich fabrics or abundant detail, they are nevertheless very complex to perceive. There is no refinement of Dior, simple and elegant lines of Chanel, or frivolous affectation of Jean-Paul Gaultier - their trademark styles which make them instantly recognizable. Balenciaga is a brand that has inspired generations of designers with its unique style which masterfully combines hardcore metallic futurism, space courreges, clean-cut geometry, and the royal splendor.

Purses: Exquisite Designer Accessories

Big handbags, such as totes, satchels and hobo bags, which have been in for several seasons now, should not be flashy or cluttered with detail, as their size is balanced by the simple design. These bags are first and foremost functional and are designed for carrying all the essentials you may need during the day - your cell phone, keys, wallet, notebook, makeup and other stuff. Purses, on the other hand, are totally different. Clutches, minaudieres, petite fancy-shaped cases where you can hardly squeeze in your phone and keys can be a playground for designer experiments, as their main purpose is to complement an outfit and draw attention to its holder.
