After 43 years of sharing their lives and growing old together, Fred and Cynthia decided it was time to become young together. They represent a growing trend of couples having cosmetic surgery.


The couple decided it was important for Fred to have his procedure first to assist his wife with the healing process.  “I am glad that, at age 68, I finally went ahead and got a neck left, face lift, temple lift, lower eyelid surgery, and fat transplant from Dr. Cruise. I was unsure if Dr. Cruise would take a man my age to perform this level of cosmetic surgery on, but after reviewing my medical clearances, and being in good health as a non-smoker and physically fit, he readily agreed. I am 30 days “post-op” and feeling and looking great. “


Fred had always believed that plastic surgery was not for him. Now he has discovered that his younger appearance is benefiting those around him and improving all areas of his life.  “The surgery not only makes me feel great, with a more optimistic outlook on life, but it has resulted in happier interactions with others. I have more of a tendency to look people in the eye, I find I am smiling more often, and when you smile more often around people, they can’t help be happier as well.”


“My wife, age 67, got the same surgical procedures 10 days ago that I did and she is recovering nicely as well,” shares Fred.  “After 43 years of marriage, the cosmetic surgery was sort of a present we gave each other, and we would do it all over again.”

The most common question asked by patients considering a facelift is "how long does it last?" Good news was released in a recent issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® stating that the majority of patients will continue to look younger years after surgery. 


The study was conducted by Drs. Barry M. Jones of King Edward VII Hospital, London, and Steven J. Lo of Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit, Glasgow. They write, "The longevity of facelift surgery is a key question that has not been adequately addressed by previous studies." The research studied 50 patients that had undergone facelift surgery an average of five and a half years previously. 


"This study provides strong evidence that facelift surgery can provide significant long-term aesthetic gains," Drs. Jones and Lo write. "Furthermore," they add, "this study also supports facelift surgery as the only rejuvenation technique to have objective and subjective evidence for long term efficacy, emphasizing the current lack of evidence of other interventions."  Read article

A failed marriage gets "ugly" in China after a man sues his wife for delivering an unattractive baby.   "I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues," he reportedly said. "Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me."

Fengs initial response was that his wife must have cheated on him because he was confident that he could never father an ugly child. After a DNA test proved paternity, his wife came forward with a huge secret. She admitted to going to South Korea and undergoing over $100,000 of cosmetic surgery before they had met.

Feng divorced his wife after feeling that his wife duped him into believing she was beautiful. He filed a lawsuit on the grounds of false pretense and was recently awarded $120,000.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of silicone breast implants! To commemorate it the NY Daily News interviewed 80 year old Great- grandma Timmie Jean Lindsey who was the first recipient of Silicone Breast Implants in the US.

The first breast implant procedure was performed by Dr. Thomas Cronin and Dr. Frank Gerow in Houston Texas in 1962. Initially, she wasn't seeking breast augmentation she had visited the surgeon to have some rose tattoos removed from her chest. She was told she was a great candidate for this innovative procedure. The implants never leaked or ruptured. The surrounding breast tissue held them in place until they started to sag when she turned 70.

Tyra Banks, host and creator of America's Top Model, is all for plastic surgery and in fact thinks it is "absolutely fantastic!”

“I hate when models say ‘Oh, plastic surgery is just a wrong thing," the former supermodel says in an interview with Yahoo! Singapore.  “What're you talking about? You won the genetic lottery," she went on. "You look like this specimen that’s making people everywhere feel insecure and you're going to ridicule someone for getting plastic surgery?"

Banks, who started modeling at 15, used to be teased for her looks. "I was very much teased as a kid for my forehead and even on the internet.”

It was her modeling career that made her feel good about her appearance. "My agency told me that if I had a smaller forehead, I would be too commercial." Now she calls herself “flawsome with a big forehead and cellulite.”

Tyra is 38 and still gorgeous but would she have plastic surgery at some point? "Sure!" She said but is indecisive when she will actually do it. “I’m very lucky,” she admitted. “But if one day I have wrinkles and I don’t like it, I don't know if I will cut myself but maybe… a little Botox, fillers?”

Chin augmentation is the fastest growing cosmetic  surgery procedure according to new statistics released by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The rise in popularity is partly attributed to the utilization of cameras, with programs like Skype and Facetime, socially and in the workplace.
The ASPS states that chin augmentation procedures in 2011 grew more that breast augmentation, Botox, and liposuctions combined. There was a 71% increase in procedures from 2010. The procedure skyrocketed in both women and men, as well as in all patients over the age of 20. The largest increases were with men and patients over 40.

For the past 15 years Richard Lee Norris has lived as a recluse, his face covered by a mask after being shattered in a gun accident. By day he hid from the public, shopping only at night to avoid the curious stares of children and adults.
