Celebrity Do’s anD Don’ts
A common misconception in today’s world of plastic surgery is that artificial fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Evolence are the best way to immediately rejuvenate the face without going under the knife. While this may be true in smaller doses, overtime the results create a plastic, plumped, and overdone look.While celebrities and Hollywood starlets have abused and over-used artificial fillers, American icon Madonna took all the right anti-aging steps and looks fantastic. Though she doesn’t admit it, her high cheekbones and plump lips are probably the result of an under-appreciated but cutting-edge procedure called Adipose Accentuation. At age 50, the untrained eye would never detect her youthful appearance is the result of plastic surgery. Adipose Accentuation can be best described as an anti-aging filler that shifts fullness from one area to another using the patient’s own organic and natural fat. Commonly practiced in the face or buttock region, This is the ideal filler and the latest trend in organic anti-aging procedures. For plastic surgery to be transcendent, three things must occur: the result must be less plastic and more natural, the intervention must be minimal with fewer incisions, and the result must be long lasting. During Adipose Accentuation, a portion of the fat removed from one part of the body is reintroduced to a different site. Amazingly, advances in modern science have shown that this also transfers stem cells into those areas, which mimic cells they come into contact with and actually create new fat, bone, and skin cells. As a result, the fullness of the cheeks, lips, or buttock region is brought back to its youthful appearance naturally. The fat transfer results not only in fullness, but rejuvenation of the skin on a cellular and microscopic level.
