Last year she spoke to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper admitting that she has been thinking about visiting a plastic surgeon in an attempt to fight the biological clock. “I think about it, like everybody, and I don't rule it out. ’But I am not going to hold a press conference if I have plastic surgery.”
If she did, who cares? For goodness sakes, she is almost 50 and looks great! She has always been on the forefront of fashion, beauty and style. Our personal opinion is that she didn’t have a facelift; it’s possible that she might have had eyelid surgery or maybe a chemical peel around the eyes but not a face lift. But we aren’t holding a press conference about it and neither should she! You look awesome, Madonna!

She attempted to soften the redness from some type of chemical peel or laser resurfacing with make up but instead emphasized it more by heavy make-up which exacerbated her painted on eye makeup and (in our opinion) highly-plumped lips. We think it is pretty ironic that Van Ark has recently filmed a guest appearance on the plastic surgery based drama FX series, "Nip/Tuck.” Love you Joan! We are here for you if you ever want to discuss how to regain your Hollywood’s Hottest Looks!

"I’ve had lots of work done. I’ll have some more done when I need it. I always said, 'If I see something sagging, bagging and dragging, I’m going to nip it, tuck it, and suck it.' Whatever needs to be done.”
Dolly, we love your outlook and zest for life. Your song is the perfect anthem to live your life to the fullest!

Men who in the past symbolized The Well Dressed Man were Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Gregory Peck and now the return of the The Well Dressed Man is one of our Hollywood’s Hottest Looks, George Clooney. These men have a strong jaw and cool style so it’s no wonder our patients continue to ask us to help them replicate their look. Thank goodness The Well Dressed Man has returned to Hollywood!

The celebrities will not compete for a job in Donald Trump’s empire, but will have to compete, forming two teams, in several tasks around New York, in their attempt to raise money and awareness for their respective causes, using personal business skills, charm and fame, according to NBC. The contestant that will win at the end of the show will become the first “Celebrity Apprentice” and will receive the prize of $250,000 to be donated to charity of their choice. They have given Nely odds of 12/1 but we think they are underestimating her.

Other men on the "Sexiest" list include Patrick Dempsey, Ryan Reynolds, Brad Pitt, James Macavoy, Johnny Depp, Dave Annable, Will Smith, Javier Bardem, Shemar Moore, Ben Affleck, Adrian Grenier, Will Yun Lee and Justin Timberlake.
Interestingly enough, the other men on the list also happen to be either from our current or past Hollywood’s Hottest Looks list. Odd coincidence or did PEOPLE magazine use our Hollywood’s Hottest List as a resource? We don’t know about that but congratulations to all the “Sexiest Men.”

"I don't want my own child to have to wait thirty years like I did. We've seen sonogram pictures that show she's likely to have a sizeable schnoz, too. Why should she suffer from it when the science and technology now exists to make kids still more perfect little human beings, ready to take on the world the moment they emerge, and not predisposed to all the insecurities that result from something like that. If it makes just one kid more confident, it'll all be worthwhile."
Turns out that Lalatimes.com, where we found this article, is about left coast humor and all that is absurd in California, haha we get it! In Beverly Hills some people can be sooo superficial that they may even do plastic surgery in the womb. We agree that if rhinoplasty improves self confidence, then it is completely worth it. But even if the science and technology was possible, we don’t know anyone that would perform this surgery.

While we don’t think that Santa should undergo liposuction to lose the weight, it wouldn’t hurt to lose some pounds. We all know that sit-ups aren’t always enough. More than 1 million US men had cosmetic plastic surgery in 2006, and liposuction has become the most popular form of cosmetic surgery among men. “Oh by Golly,” can you still be jolly and have a wash board stomach?

"To be honest, I am completely natural," Kidman tells Marie Claire magazine. "I have nothing in my face or anything," she says. Kidman, 40, says she does not judge people who have had plastic surgery. "Anybody can do anything to themselves and their bodies," she says.
We are not suggesting that Kidman has ever done Botox®, but to never see a Botox® needle? You can easily close your eyes, and imagine.

Yahoo said that this image of actress Halle Berry attending the premiere of Things We Lost In The Fire in London on Wednesday Oct. 24, 2007, is one of the most viewed and emailed pictures of the day. One website even called her “cleavage-tastic” in her blue dress. We cannot disagree with that but we also know that Halle is naturally cleavage inclined and is even more so due to her pregnancy. Congratulations on the baby, Halle!

“I went the liposuction route a couple of years ago,” said Schneider. “I would do 1000 sit-ups a day and nothing was happening.”
At BHI, we think liposuction is perfect for people who, despite all the dieting and exercise they do, still can’t lose those last few pounds. Lately, John has been known for playing Clark Kent’s father on Smallville and in the recent Amanda Byne movie, Sydney White. If he doesn’t sound familiar, we are sure you will remember him as wild Bo Duke on Dukes of Hazzard. This season on Nip/Tuck, John plays a porn star and we can’t wait to see how wild he is on this show!

Come on, that is simply reading too much into a song! We would rather discuss Jennifer’s recent comment to BBC Radio 1, “I don’t judge anybody who has had work done [referring to plastic surgery]. You don’t know how you will feel when you reach a certain age.”
AwfulPlasticSurgery.com said in 2004 that Jennifer had a lip reduction, two rhinoplasty surgeries, and possibly cheek implants. If she had those surgeries, why would anyone think they are awful? She has one of our most requested Hollywood Hottest Looks!

We saw the new Wendy's commercial this morning and we thought it was hilarious! It’s a mock presidential debate and the Wendy's candidate stands up in the middle of the debate and says, "What? So I can choose what celebrity's nose I want, but I have to have fries with my meal?" The commercial is about Wendy’s offering more sides with their meals, not just fries. We love that Wendy's mentions celebrity noses, exactly like we do! Hollywood’s Hottest Looks all the way!

This is not the most flattering photo of Britney, so we can’t even begin to comment if she had a cosmetic procedure or not, but we do know that getting lip augmentation is no big deal. With so many choices in lip augmentation at BHI, we make sure that our patients obtain lips that not only complement their individual facial features, but looks natural and gives them the most fantastic “kissers” in Beverly Hills.

We were driving down Hollywood and Highland the other day and saw TV’s favorite plastic surgeons in hologram at the Hollywood and Highland Center. No it’s not us, but the skirt-chasing, morality-challenged Christian Troy, and the straitlaced, idealistic Sean McNamara of the hit cable show, Nip/Tuck.
This season they are diving into the Beverly Hills lifestyle, with publicist played by Lauren Hutton at their side to bring in celebrity clientele as they try to rebuild their plastic surgery practice. Good thing this is a TV show or we would have to show them who is the best in Beverly Hills, us of course! Now that would be drama.

Rumors are rampant that Ashlee Simpson is using Botox. We don’t think she is, but insiders are speculating that Ashlee is using Botox injections as frequently as once a month to achieve her “wide-eyed”, wrinkle-free look. She is 23-years old. Of course, she is wrinkle free! Also, why would she deny using Botox? Her sister, Jessica, was open about using Restylane for her lips and Ashley has admitted to plastic surgery earlier this year when she had rhinoplasty. Even though we don’t think Ashley had Botox, if she did, there is nothing wrong with doing a little preventative work!

"Yes, I have had a facelift, but who hasn't? … I asked my 90-year-old grandmother what she wanted for her 90th birthday and she wanted collagen in her lips!” said Cher back in September to Let Life In Magazine.
We love it but we think that she meant her mother. It turns out that Cher is not alone. With her fellow baby boomers, facelifts are the second most popular cosmetic surgical procedure for men and women over age 55. At BHI, we love doing facelifts because there is a wide range of different types of facelifts and procedures that can be performed depending on the individual patient and the aspects of the aging face that apply to them. Rumor has it that Cher might be having rejuvenation in anticipation of her new Vegas show. Thanks Cher, for reminding us that we don’t have to look our physical age, but the age we feel, and still get our social security!

We don’t think that Janice is old by any means, but many people are turning to plastic surgeons to eliminate the saggy neck skin under the chin that says, "I'm old." Though it used to be part of a face-rejuvenation procedure, tightening the skin in the neck in an hour-long visit is becoming a popular procedure unto itself.
The reality TV regular, 52, has made no effort to hide her love of plastic surgery and has undergone numerous operations, including a facelift and a boob job, to preserve her youthful looks. If she did just get a necklift, congratulations on taking care of business.

"I don't see me getting oodles of stuff done, but for some things it's a godsend. After three kids, gravity takes its toll and everything heads south, so it's an option."
We don’t know that plastic surgery is a “godsend” but we definitely think it’s a great option to people who want to look their best. And Demi, you look terrific!
Posted by The Beverly Hills Institute at 7:58 AM
We certainly agree, especially with someone as gorgeous as Michelle, that a little nip and tuck here and there is the perfect way to go for a rested and rejuvenated look. Too often people judge plastic surgery by the horror stories, but at BHI we provide happily ever afters.

In Beverly Hills and throughout Los Angeles, everyone is an actor/actress. At BHI, we are not easily impressed but we can’t help getting a little star struck. Forbes.com's first-ever analysis of top-selling famous faces placed Jennifer Aniston as the number one top face. Jennifer has been “most desired hair” on our Hollywood’s Hottest Looks survey in the past but we have a feeling that this year Jennifer’s face is going to be one of our most requested features.
Jennifer has admitted to having rhinoplasty to correct her deviated septum back in January. With a deviated septum, patients complain of difficulty breathing easily, or of sleeping disorders such as snoring or sleep apnea. Jennifer says, “Best thing I ever did. I slept like a baby for the first time in years.” A good night’s rest and a beautiful nose what more can the top-selling face ask for?

So this season, Tyra Banks has declared that America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) will be a smoke-free season. Seems to us at BHI that Tyra is going for do-gooder status this season, first ANTM goes GREEN (no more Hummer Limos driving the girls around) and now smoke free. For the first shoot, it was a composite image of each of the ANTM hopefuls made up to look glamorous as she sits smoking in front of a mirror. Then, special effects makeup will show what smoking does to the face. About time the modeling industry stops glamorizing smoking!
Yes, yes, smoking is bad for the body but we all know that what really matters is the face. Kidding aside, at the BHI we let our patients know that smoking causes premature wrinkling around the eyes and the mouth, increased facial capillaries and a pale, grayish tint to the skin. After five years of smoking, 25 year old models who smoke look much older! No wonder they have to start so young. In order to correct the premature aging from smoking, they will need regular regimens of Botox, Fillers, and Chemical Peels with a possible face lift depending on how long they have been smoking. So let that be a lesson to models, model hopefuls, and everyone else that smokes, smoking is not sexy nor is it worth your looks! Can't wait Wednesday for the next episode.

In Touch “outs” Megan Fox as having some type of cosmetic procedure to smooth out her nose. No matter if she did or didn’t, Megan’s face is gorgeous. We know patients are going to want her Hollywood’s Hottest Looks!

We just heard that Patrick Darling (Billy Baldwin) the oldest son of the Darling clan, who also happens to be a New York Attorney General who’s running for the U.S. Senate (whoa, that’s a mouthful) will be having a love affair with a… transgender character. The actress is Candis Cayne, who is a transgender herself. What a breakthrough for the Transgender community.
She is a beautiful woman and while she isn’t our client, we have been creating these natural appearing females for decades. We know that to achieve that level of feminization, it does require quite a bit of facial plastic surgery. As facial plastic surgeons here at Beverly Hills Institute, we know quite a bit about the many procedures that the women of the transgender community need in order to feel beautiful. Like we always say, whatever we can do to help a woman feel and look her best, we will do it.

“People would say, ‘You have such a big nose!’ And they’d make fun of me for being so flat, and say mean boy things, like, “If you nailed two nails in a board, they would be bigger than you are.” I was tormented…Whatever women need to do to feel sexy, they should do.”
We are so on top of celebrity news! We like a natural looking nose and agree with the current emphasis on natural results, which has been our philosophy for almost 30 years. Love the look, Heidi!

Even though Cate Blanchett is at the top of our Hollywood’s Hottest Looks list, we don‘t know that Elizabeth I would have made it. With Elizabeth: The Golden Age coming to the big screen, it brings to mind something we have been saying for years. Elizabeth I had a huge forehead!
It’s been said that if she didn’t like a particular picture she would have destroyed it, “Her Majesty commands all manner of persons to stop doing portraits of her until a clever painter has finished one which all other painters can copy.” Smart Lady, too bad nowadays people don’t have that option. We recommend patients get the Fleming/Mayer Hairline Lowering Procedure. Some unlucky women have a congenitally high hairline, giving them a masculine look resulting in a balding appearance. For those patients, the Fleming/Mayer Hairline Lowering Procedure has been developed to lower the hairline and to bring the proportions of the face and hairline into balance.

We have to admit, Kathy has guts compared to most of Hollywood - whether A list or D list. She has confessed, loud and proud, to multiple different cosmetic procedures including: nose job, brow lift, Botox®, chemical skin peel, and liposuction! Kathy, like Nicole Kidman, had a high forehead and low eyebrows. So when Kathy gleefully dishes dirt on celebrities, we are happy that she also dishes on the many attributes of cosmetic surgery!

Once asked, "What do you think of plastic surgery, and would you consider it in thirty years?" Sarah Michelle Geller said, "I can't comment now what I'm going to do ten, fifteen years from now." And even has said, "But I'm OK with nose jobs if you get up every day and look in the mirror and your nose makes you unhappy. If you think that's the answer, by all means do it."
At 31, we think she looks amazing but unfortunately, her eyebrows are low, meaning that she is someone that most likely won’t age well as her brows go down.
Typically, the mistake most people make when they want to correct the low brow is an upper eyelid Blepharoplasty when the correct procedure for her would be a Hairline Forehead Lift. We see that very often in our practice. Only a Hairline Forehead Lift will correct the brows without raising the hairline and eliminate the eyelid hooding at the same time. Let's hope, when she decides to get plastic surgery she doesn’t make the obvious mistake.

Kate Hudson, Paris Hilton and Reese Witherspoon are names not often listed together, but this year they were all voted top Hottest Hollywood Skin by our patients. Let's face it, not all skin types are created equal but the natural, low maintenance look that is popular make it necessary to have great skin. We recommend macrodermabrasion, a form of skin resurfacing with NO down time.
This treatment uses sea salt and a positive pressure machine to remove dead surface layers of the skin helping fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation as well as mild acne scarring. We think that this is the perfect treatment for people who don't want to worry about leaving the house without make up.

Kiera Knightly was recently complaining about how much airbrushing is done to her when she poses for women's magazines. We all know that magazines are notorious for retouching but no one can fake her slanting eyes, knife-edge cheekbones and that almost irritatingly perfect upper lip. No wonder for the past 3 years she had made it on to Hollywood's Hottest Looks.
While youth is on her side, we have noticed that high cheekbones for women never go out of style. As we age, many patients come in and ask to lose the "sunken-in" appearance and minimize the folds at the sides of the mouth. We often suggest a cheeklift on those patients to correct muscle sagging. This procedure allows us to lift the cheek area and return a more youthful fullness to the cheeks.

"Low browed" isn’t normally what people think of when they think of Nicole Kidman but we have to say it. Yes, Nicole is the epitome of refinement and taste but she has what is called ptosis, meaning literally having eyebrows that are very low. As we all know, age lowers the brow, in turn aging us even more... bad news for Nicole. Added to low brows, Nicole also has a high hair line.
A mistake in correcting her low brow would be an endoscopic forehead lift, which would only make the problem worse by raising her hairline even more. Thanks again to our commitment to finding the best procedures for every person’s individual face, we developed a technique that allows the hair to grow through and in front of the hairline incision, so the hairline incision is completely undetectable diminishing her low brow state at the same time.

George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Eddie Murphy... they don’t seem to have problem getting the ladies, so what is it that they all have in common? According to our annual survey, Hollywood’s Hottest Looks, its CHEEKBONES. What is it about strong cheek bones in men that make all the girls swoon? At Beverly Hills Institute, we constantly have men coming in asking to look like George, Johnny or Eddie, not knowing what they really want is prominent cheekbones.
Prominent cheek bones improve facial contour and accentuate the eyes. With 60% increase in men having cosmetic procedures, men no longer see plastic surgery as a woman issue. As men age, men lose volume in their face and cheekbones become less prominent. There are different types of implants used for the cheekbones that are customized for each patient to get them lady killer looks.
