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.

Interestingly enough, this year we have noticed a rise in requests for sharper jaw lines for women, the most popular chin and jaw line is Eva Longoria. She has a strong jaw line but no one would suggest that she is in anyway masculine. We treat a recessed or underdeveloped chin with an implant placed through an incision [in the mouth or] in the skin crease under the chin. If the chin is too prominent, we reduce the jaw through an incision in the mouth. Giving our patients a jaw line a runway model would envy.

Thanks to HBO’s Entourage Adrian Grenier and his head of hair, the bald look of Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson is out! After the votes came in for 2007 Hollywood’s Hottest Looks, we found out that his curly shag was voted one of the top desired features in Hollywood. As a young guy, a head of hair is often taken for granted but men dealing with hair loss don’t have to worry, there are options available to them.
At the Beverly Hills Institute, we perform the most natural form of hair replacement surgery in the world, known as the Fleming/Mayer Flap. This means that a patient with frontal baldness can return to work one week after a Fleming/Mayer Flap procedure with a full head of hair. Not bad if we say so ourselves.

While it’s no surprise that Angelina Jolie has the most desired lips, it seems like Brangelina are the power couple to beat when it comes to the perfect pout. Both Brad and Angelina were voted most desired lips in the male and female category of Hollywood’s Hottest Looks this year.
We, mere mortals, don’t have to only dream of the luscious lips of Brangelina; these hottest looks can be easily done with Verafil. We can tailor Verafil to either enlarge lips, give more volume, or both. Verafil is a thin-walled, dual layered, saline filled tiny implant that is inserted into the lip and has an adjustable “fill” capacity and a self-sealing valve. After placement, we simply fill the tiny bladder with saline solution until they reach the desired size. Should the patient prefer the lips to be bigger or smaller afterwards, the implant can be easily replaced making the procedure reversible.

As with every generation, the beauty ideal changes but we have noticed in the last 10 years since The Mask of Zorro, Catherine Zeta Jones has been on everyone’s radar. Speculations of past plastic surgery hound her but who cares we say at the Beverly Hills Institute, looking good is what matters.
For the many women who want to achieve the classic beauty of Catherine, we let them know that a lot of it depends on their facial structure. But at the same time we think a sleek nose job, some tightening under the eyes with a blepharoplasty and, of course, highlighting their cheek bones with implants or fillers will bring out Catherine’s amazing features for any woman.
