Lots of women are avoiding going under the knife because they can now easily manipulate their pictures by using photo filter apps on their mobile phone.
In today’s technological age, who needs a plastic surgeon to look great? Not on the screen anyway…
That’s right! Many females have found the tricks to “short” lasting beauty and they can easily show the whole world how pretty they look with a little help from their handset device.
According to the BAAPS (British Association Of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons), the ladies prefer to digitally enhance their physical appearance using photo manipulating applications or pre-installed filters that comes with their favorite social media apps such as Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat.
These photo filtering software allows the user to touch up or even alter their appearance by simply tapping on a few buttons. They can soften their face tones, remove pimples, scars and can even perform a virtual nose job by literally photoshopping the nose to make it smaller.
The result is smooth radiant skin, sharper jawline, skinnier cheeks, thinner nose and you can even say goodbye to that double chin if you waned to!
Plastic Surgeon Raijv Grover told the mail,
People can now improve looks without surgery. We call this new technique the “filter job”.
This trend is apparently affecting the female cosmetic surgery industry with figures showing:
- Brow-Lift Down by 31%
- Eyelid Surgery Down by 1/5
- Facelift Down by a staggering 44%
However, there is one procedure that has defied the latest fall and grown by 7%.
Which procedure is it?
Well..let’s just say you wouldn’t post this on your feed.
You guessed it…it’s boob job!
Abdominal Etching: Get 6 Pack Abs Without Workout!
Forget hitting the gym or doing painful situps, there is an easier way to get those perfect looking 6 pack abs without any effort. The plastic surgery procedure, known as abdominal etching, was developed by the University of Miami’s Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine and promises to reshape the most stubborn belly fat.
A recent study published in the PRSJournal (Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons) provided a more comprehensive study of this relatively new surgical technique.
The research consisted of 24 females and 26 males, and it involves using targeted liposuction to remove fat from the patient’s abdomen, ultimately revealing their most natural abdominal muscle lines. Generally, men will have 6 ab lines (vertical and horizontal) and women will have 3 vertical ab lines.
The best part about this procedure is that the patient can opt for different sculpting preferences resulting from a soft looking stomach and hip line to a more defined six pack muscular look.
The results from these before and after photos have been very natural looking.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any surgeries, there is always a level of risk. If things do go wrong, the abdominal etching procedure can leave a patient with muscle and nerve damage. There are also cases where some patients have been left with infections.
To minimize these risks and to achieve the best outcomes, the patients are required to wear the sculpted foam dressings for a couple of weeks during the healing. They are also required to visit a doctor regularly to check for complications.
What is the cost?
According to the DocShop, an abdominal etching surgery can cost between US$3,000 to US$10,000 depending on a number of factors such as:
- The country and area taking place
- The amount of fat to be removed
- The liposuction technique – e.g tumescent, ultrasonic, etc
- The surgeon’s expertise
- The cost of anesthesiologist and surgery facility
Is this the right procedure for me?
There is no right or wrong answer and will largely depend on your own needs. If you ask me, natural is always the best way to go, but sometimes life just doesn’t permit it.
For example, a fitness fanatic may have been training 4 hours a day to get the abs he deserves, but for some reasons, the stubborn fat just won’t go away. Then, ab etching may be an option he can look at.
Or you simply don’t have the time or will power to do the exercises required, and would rather pay someone to help you achieve a similar result.
The important thing to remember is while this surgery may offer a shortcut to help you achieve the beach body you’ve always wanted, you will eventually need to work out if you want to maintain the physique.
Ozzy Osbourne Revealed When Sharon First Got Her Breast Implants
The Prince of Darkness has seen it all.
So it wouldn’t surprise him if his wife Sharon wanted to get a new pair of bosom.
This was back in 2005 and the hard rocker was pretty cool about it.
“She’s great. She just had some new t*ts. They’ve only just been done. I’ve gotta wait to see what happens. I hope they’ve only put two there because there’s not enough room (in the house) with the dogs already.”
I think this husband has been pretty supportive given the number of procedures Sharon has undergone. Or maybe it’s just a no-go zone.
Remember, Sharon is a tough cookie too.
Sure, you may be thinking; who wouldn’t want a prettier wife?
The truth is, a lot of men don’t like fake boobs (At least my man don’t).
But then, when I read about the stress, pain and suffering Ozzy and his family has been under during the era of his reality TV show, something began to click.
“At first when I started doing ‘The Osbournes’, it was a lot of fun. And then things started to happen, like my kids couldn’t handle it, I couldn’t handle it, my wife got sick with cancer.”
Of course, this is old news.
But perhaps some men can learn a thing or two from Ozzy about appreciating, being supportive, and just being there for your wife no matter what.
Now, this is the kind of love to be envy about.
Bebe Rexha FAT Shamed By Designers, But NOT All Fans Are Convinced
The Grammy is just a few weeks away and with 2 nominations up her sleeve, Bebe Rexha was dying to find the best outfit for the event.
So, she got her team to reach out to some of the top designers hoping for a custom made gown that’ll allow her to shine in the evening. Unfortunately, most didn’t want to dress her because she was too big.
Bebe took it up to Instagram and her response had many clapping.
If size 6/8 is too big, then I don’t know what to tell you. Then I don’t want to wear your f**king dresses coz that’s crazy.
Without naming any names, she then said…
All you’re saying is that all the women in the world who are size 8 and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dresses.
We can obviously see where this was going and she did not disappoint.
So to all the people who said I’m thick and I can’t wear your dresses. F**k You! I don’t want to wear your F**king dresses!
In the caption, she wrote:
Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY
As expected, the singer’s account was flooded with support messages from fans.
But a couple really caught our attention.
Let’s just say they weren’t totally convinced suggesting this could be a publicity stunt or something to do with Bebe’s status as an artist.
“Love her for this but what I don’t get is how other artists thicker do get those fashions. Artists like Nicki, Adele, Etc… not sure if it’s fully just about the weight. Either way, still wrong.”
“I find this weird since artist like nicki, cardi, Beyoncé, and Rihanna that are actually bigger (in size) than her, and designers won’t dress her🤔. Pick more inclusive designers I guess, stop supporting brands that are not diverse!”
“That f**kin bullshittt smfh when will it end!! You are beautiful just the way you are! My question is….they cant design a dress for your ass but they can dress Kim’s big o’ fat ass?? Come on man!! I smell bull 💩💩💩”
“Size 8 ass? Are you kidding? 😂 Listen: If you feel good about yourself, just relax. I can tell you one thing though: There will be a time when you are going to have health issues and you are going to regret that you didn’t take better care of your body. If you are happy with yourself, what does it matter what designers think? The truth is: Your feelings were hurt for a reason and deep down there, you know why you’re upset.”
“Any proofs? Sorry I don’t believe you. They dress even bigger women than you(Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Rihanna). It looks like you just look for attention 😉 @beberexha”
One particular user even suggested that her butt was fake.
“love your body? You didn’t love your original butt. Besides, it’s your track record that isn’t big enough for the big designers, not your shape. Just find a designer who is as semi-known as you are”
Of course, our team has covered that already since Bebe is someone who we considered to be totally gorgeous.
We just couldn’t let her go.
Not like these stupid designers.
