Big Bang Theory actress admits to boob job

The Big Bang Theory star, Kaley Cuoco, had previously brushed off the rumours that she had undergone breast surgery but now the star has confirmed they are true after all. The actress told Cosmopolitan Magazine that she had breast implants when she was 18 years old and claims it was the “best decision” she ever made.

When speaking on the red carpet of her new movie Authors Anonymous inLos Angelesthe 28 year old joked that she thought it was already public knowledge that she’d had a boob job.

“Well it’s weird, I was just telling them, in my head I think I thought it was knowledge and then when I said it I’m like maybe it’s not knowledge. I thought the whole world knew. I told everybody I don’t care.

“It’s one of the best things that I’ve ever done and I love them. I’m super happy. I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

Kaley also went on to speak about her marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting;

“It’s been three months. I am a total wife. Oh my god. I am a cooker, I won’t say I clean, but I cook and I love every second of it.”

A breast enlargement simply adds volume to breasts, making them larger and rounder with the addition of implants. If you are considering breast surgery then contact The Hospital Group for a free, no obligation consultation with a GMC registered surgeon.

Woman loses 17 stone after weight loss surgery

The Daily Mail has published an article earlier this week highlighting problems and difficulties that obese or overweight women come across when pregnant.

 NHS Choices give the following facts for obesity and pregnancy:

  • About 15 to 20 percent of pregnant women in theUKare now overweight or obese.
  • Most manage to have a successful pregnancy however; being overweight increases the risk of miscarriage, high blood pressure, blood clots and infections. It can also cause problems with breastfeeding and having a baby with an abnormally high birth weight.
  • Obese pregnant women are more likely to need an induction, an instrumental delivery – using forceps or ventouse – or a caesarean.
  • Their babies are more likely to have health problems later in life or have birth defects.

Daily Mail told the story of Michelle, 35, who had been trying for a child since 1999 but suffered from miscarriages right up until 2007. The emotional heartbreak from this and also three failed marriages caused her to turn to comfort eating.

In 2007, the doctor warned Michelle that it was her weight that was making it harder to have a successful pregnancy and that her obesity was putting strain on her heart and endangering her life. It was then that Michelle decided to change her life and undergo gastric bypass surgery.

Michelle then went on to lose an astonishing 17 stone – over half of her weight – and at a healthy 13 stone she finally gave birth to a daughter in January last year.

Twins have cosmetic surgery together to remain alike

Twins, Kerry and Jo, were born alike and grew up looking alike. They’ve always enjoyed being identical twins, but also like the odd cosmetic enhancement. They appeared on This Morning to discuss how they have cosmetic surgery procedures together to remain alike.

They told Ruth and Eamonn on the ITV show that when they decided to have their first cosmetic surgery procedure, they wanted to make sure they still looked the same. This means they must always agree on what procedures they have, and have them together, even by the same surgeon and one after the other.

The first procedure they had was back in 1997, when they were modelling aged 21; they had their noses done – together. Since then the twins have both had breast augmentations, eyelid surgery and also had their eyebrows tattooed.

There are only two small differences between them; one has slightly thicker eyebrows than the other because her pain threshold was higher than her sisters and also one twin is slightly taller.

So far the twins have spent £70,000 on cosmetic surgery. Have they got more procedures planned?

“We’d never rule it out completely but we’d obviously have to agree on what we have done.”

Former Eastenders star admits she will probably have a facelift in the future

Nadia Sawalha, former Eastenders and Loose Women panellist, revealed she has given plenty of thought to going under the knife.

“Every single week I say, ‘If only I could have my neck lifted and dragged back and stuck with gaffer tape.’

“I think one day I probably will have a face lift.”

Nadia, who will turn 50 this year, has recently teamed up with Splenda for their ‘Small Steps’ healthy living campaign. In the past Nadia has been a ‘yo-yo’ dieter and lost two stone a few years ago but now she is more than happy with her figure and she thinks that women should have realistic goals for weight loss.

“Every year that’s gone on, I’ve learnt so much and realised that actually I’ve got a great figure. When I was in my teens, twenties and early thirties it was all about what I’m not and what I couldn’t be and I think a lot of women use that reason not to go for things they want to do in life.”

Does cosmetic surgery procedures affect married couples when the husbands undergo surgery?

Over the recent years we have seen a rise in men undergoing cosmetic procedures. This was confirmed again in a survey carried out last month by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons where it has been seen that the average age of men opting for surgery has risen to 42 years old.

With high-profile celebrities such as David Beckham and Shane Warne said to be inspiring a new generation of the metro sexual man, this had “put pressure on other men to look a certain way,” says psychologist Amanda Hill.

“There are also increasing numbers of middle-aged men re-entering the dating scene who are swayed by the promises of surgery. But mostly I think men see women who have had surgery looking flawless and feel compelled to match them.”

This week the Daily Mail looked into how cosmetic surgery procedures affect married couples when the husbands have surgery.

Kennie from Crawley underwent an Otoplasty procedure to correct his protruding ears, which he had been self-conscious about for years. As his wedding day approached he decided that he didn’t want his protruding ears to be in his wedding pictures.

Kennie’s wife, Susan, recalled the instant change in him after his surgery.

“He smiled more, and he had the confidence to hold more conversations. Everyone complimented him, and our wedding day was undoubtedly better for it.”

Another married man from Basildon, David, decided to undergo liposuction to the stomach, chest and back. During his operation they took three and a half litres of fat which also caused David to lose 7lbs. David is that happy with the results that he is even trying to persuade his wife to follow in his lead.

“It was the best money I ever spent. It spurred me on to do more exercise. Looking good gives me a buzz , which hasn’t done our sex life any harm.

Until his early 20s, Alex from Chelmsford, was 19st, then he found the motivation to lose 5st through regular exercise and healthy eating, but unfortunately Alex was left with folds of skin around his stomach which frustrated him because he still hadn’t achieved the look he wanted.

When Alex, 30, met Charlotte, also 30, at the PA firm where he works he worried she wouldn’t find his body attractive so he looked into cosmetic surgery and decided to take a loan out to pay for tummy tuck surgery.

“I’m much more confident.Charlotte says I look amazing, and I think the operation will make our marriage happier.”

If you feel cosmetic surgery may be something you would like to consider, then The Hospital Group offers a range of surgical procedures, which are tailored for male patients. Contact us now for a free, no obligation consultation with a GMC registered cosmetic surgeon.

Has the Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney had Botox injections?

Wayne Rooney, who has just signed a new contract with Manchester United worth £300,000 a week, has allegedly undergone a course of Botox injections to smooth out the lines on his forehead.

Talking to the press after United’s 1-0 win at home in November, Wayne’s forehead seems wrinkle free compared to only weeks before when his team won 2-0 at crystal palace.

A leading surgeon told the Daily Mail that the dramatic change in Mr Rooney’s appearance between the images in October and his appearance now is ‘consistent’ with using the anti-wrinkle injection treatment.

Wayne, 28, has already spent £30,000 on two hair transplants in the last 3 years. His first procedure was carried out in 2011. Days after this operation he tweeted to confirm.

“Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25, why not? I’m delighted with the results.”

In a recent article by the Daily Mail it was found that the number of men having Botox has increased by 25% last year and tripled since 2011. If the claims turn out to be true for Wayne then he would join male celebrities including music mogul Simon Cowell and Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan Clark in championing the skin-smoothing product.

Dr Leah wins the Apprentice and reached out to women having BOTOX

She’s hired! Following on from last night’s finale of The Apprentice 2013 where Irish doctor, Leah Totton was crowned the winner we are pleased that this will encourage patients having non-surgical treatments to visit a reputable clinic instead of hair and beauty salons offering procedures such as BOTOX and fillers.
Leah’s triumph means that she has now earned £250,000 to inject into her cosmetic and aesthetic treatment business. However she has already felt the resounding influence of Lord Sugar after he decided to abolish the name ‘NIKS Medical’ in favour of his own suggestion ‘Dr Leah’.
In the beginning Lord Sugar did have some concerns around Leah’s business plan, however she did try and relieve these worries by saying: “I want to ensure these treatments are carried out in a medical environment by properly trained medical professionals.
“I’m a woman and I’m interested in appearance. It worried me to see these procedures done by people who are not medically trained.
“We need to be clear I’m not going into this to encourage women to have these treatments, the market is already there.”
The Hospital Group echo Leah’s concerns on the industry and wants to reach out to those women who are choosing to go to the wrong clinic or injector for their non-surgical treatments. BOTOX is a prescription only medicine which a lot of patients do tend to forget, we therefore recognise that it is extremely important that the treatment is administered by a doctor or nurse practitioner.

Tina Malone – Pregnant at 50 following her gastric band!

Tina Malone is living proof that women can become pregnant whilst still have a gastric band. Tina, aged 50, decided to have IVF treatment to help her get pregnant after losing 11 stone with the gastric band which she had with The Hospital Group 3 years ago

Tina has slowly completed a number of goals, first she found true love in Paul, who although 19 years her junior, idolises her unconditionally. Then came her weight loss; after various health risks and the diagnosis of numerous co-morbidities Tina decided to seek help with combatting her obesity and opted for the gastric band.
To date she has lost 11 stone and now calls the band “her new best friend”. It has given her a new lease of life and been able to give her the confidence to move forward in her career and home life.
Last year, Tina and husband Paul began IVF treatment and this has since been successful which really is the finishing touch to have a baby which they can both raise and love as much as they love each other.
She is a positive role model to women out there who feel that their weight is preventing them to become pregnant, and dispels myths that you can not get pregnant with a gastric band.
When asked by the Sunday Mirror’s Carole Malone if she would consider having her gastric band removed whilst pregnant, she replied, “You’d have to kill me to get this out. I’ve lost 11 stones in 26 months and it’s staying inside me ­because I can’t stay thin without it. Some people can… I can’t because I would eat my own body weight in chocolate and crisps.”

Rise in American women banishing ‘bingo wings’ with cosmetic surgery

Women in the USA have become more conscious of their bingo wings than ever before with arm lift procedures rising in recent years.

They have soared by more than 4,000 per cent in the last 10 years, with 15,000 operations performed last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

In Britain we do see a demand for this type of procedure but we do not carry out as many, however this could change. When trends occur in the USA we often see a pattern emerging in the UK, particularly with summer looming, people tend to want to feel better about their bodies.

In the USA, people undergoing arm lift surgery have increased from 300 in the year 2000 to over 15,000 in 2012, 98% of whom were women.

ASPS conducted a recent poll on which celebrity had the most favoured toned arms and results showed that women most admired Michelle Obama, followed by Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Biel and Demi Moore.

An arm lift procedure entails removing excess skin from beneath the arm. Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat if required and can also streamline the shape of the arms. It is commonly performed following weight loss surgery to correct loose skin.

If you are interested in arm lift surgery or any other forms of cosmetic surgery then The Hospital Group can help you.
