In Saudi Arabia, a camel beauty pageant has made headlines for disqualifying 12 camels who reportedly received Botox to beautify their lips, noses, and jaws.
It cost a horrible amount of money. $485. It was what they call "Baby Botox." If the name was meant to alleviate concern that I’d leave the room corpse-stiff, then it worked. Just a pinch of Baby Botox, what could possibly go wrong? Nothing actually. Everything I’d panicked about pre-Botox — facial paralysis, not being able to show surprise, my friends turning on me because I looked like Stepford wife — well, none of that happened. But what I hadn’t prepared myself for was The Botox Guilt.
When patients come into the Palo Alto, CA, offices of facial plastic surgeons Drs. David M. Lieberman, MD, and Sachin S. Parikh, MD, they aren’t necessarily concerned with the authenticity of their Botox Cosmetic, Dysport or Xeomin—but it’s something the practice has a very strict protocol for handling. “Whenever someone comes in for Botox, or for any injectable for that matter, our medical assistant takes the product out of the box and fills the syringe in front of the patient,” ...
Kelly Ripa is tearing down the walls surrounding cosmetic surgery, one Instagram comment at the time.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that 7,056,255 Botox procedures were performed in 2016 alone, but make no mistake: David Beckham was not one of them. The iconic former footballer, who was photographed looking characteristically youthful while attending wife Victoria Beckham’s runway show at New York Fashion Week on Sunday, did not take kindly to a fan’s suggestion that he, like over seven million other people, may have had a little bit of botulinum toxin type A injected into his forehead area.

Linda Evangelista, one of the original iconic supermodels, isn't afraid of aging. She likes wrinkles and just wants to look good.
Sure, Botox can help get rid of your frown lines. Science is tantalizingly close, at least according to Jason S. Reichenberg, MD, director of dermatology at the University of Texas-Austin and co-author of a study about the correlation between Botox and depression that was just published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. “One of the theories about Botox treating depression is that it doesn’t make you smile, but it stops you from frowning,” Reichenberg tells Yahoo Beauty.
Social media is buzzing about how different Meg Ryan looked at the Tony Awards. But why is plastic surgery — more popular than ever — still shrouded in shame?
Talk about a job perk: Teachers in the Buffalo, N.Y., school district have a rider in their contract that includes free cosmetic surgery with no copay. But now, the Buffalo School Board is trying to surgically remove that rider.
Between countless anti-aging products crowding the counters in department stores and adverts featuring young models with impossibly flawless skin, it’s easy to get caught up in battling fine lines and age spots (and not to mention, spending a pretty penny while doing so). Rbsn has greater things to worry about and had no problem taking a rather pushy salesperson to task for using her age to market her anti aging serums and creams. As Rbsn recounted in a Facebook post, she was en route to her gate at Calgary International Airport when she was approached by a salesman from a skin care shop.
There are three things guys generally don’t talk about with each other: the last time they cried, favorite episodes of Girls, and whether they’ve had cosmetic procedures. What did you do?’“ says Dr. Seth Matarasso, a board certified surgeon and Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of California School Of Medicine in San Francisco. "Men are a little gun shy in querying about what’s available.” But, the reality is that the of number cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased 273 percent since 1997, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. But men still account for only about one in ten cosmetic procedure patients. With that dearth of personal experience, not to mention the reluctance with which guys generally talk about it, men tend to find themselves at an information deficit about cosmetic procedures.
While women in their 20s are now getting what’s called preventative Botox, I’m countering aging with a method I like to call “preventative moisture.”
“Do you see those two women sitting in the corner?” my Korean translator, a young woman in her 20s, asked me. The woman on the right more than her friend on the left.” We stared at two tall, slim, and elegantly dressed women with translucently pale skin who were quietly sipping their own lattes. “These are not natural Korean characteristics,” my translator added.
Cosmetic surgery among men is becoming an unspoken norm. From “Brotox” and injectable fillers to Board Short Tucks and CoolSculpting, men are stepping up their game when it comes to maintaining their appearance. But does the uptick in aesthetic procedures symbolize a new era of access and empowerment when it comes to men, or will it open the floodgates to the same body image concerns that women have been battling forever? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 men had Botox injections in 2014 (up 337 percent from 2000) and over 90,000 received fillers (which marks an 86 percent increase since 2000). Similarly, RealSelf.com (an online community that connects people considering aesthetic treatments to others undergoing the same procedures, and to board certified doctors) reports a 59 percent jump in male visitors over the last year. Dermatologists, who often also specialize in hair restoration/transplants as well as skin treatments, saw that number rise 87 percent.
Facialist Georgia Louise takes a “more is more” approach to skin care. “If you want to have beautiful skin, you’ve got to work at it,” Louise says. “If a client comes here and expects a 1-2-3-step program, I send them home, because that’s not my thing.” For Louise, who treats a gorgeous list of clients including Jennifer Aniston, Behati Prinsloo, Emma Stone, and Linda Evangelista, more is more when it comes to beauty.
Shouldn’t we be stimulating the muscle so it stays tight?” Dr. John Martin, MD is a cosmetic plastic surgeon practicing in Coral Gables, Florida. Dr. Debra Jaliman, MD is a Charlotte’s Book Premier Provider and a dermatologist practicing on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Dr. Jaliman is recognized as a leader in the field of Botox treatments. On Muscle Response Dr. John Martin gives some context: “When Botox or other neurotoxins are injected into the forehead, it will relax the horizontal creases.

When you see advertisements for discounted treatments, it’s understandably tempting. But before you sign up for a so-called bargain, it pays to do a little research.
