In a trend that is expected to carry into spring, plunging necklines and oblique-baring silhouettes are dominating the red carpet this award season.
You’d be naïve to think today’s celebrities would hit the red carpet without some touch-ups in their plastic surgeon’s office, whether that means BOTOX® Cosmetic, liposuction, or breast enhancement. But today’s technology has made having a little “work done” less work. Celebs can opt for nonsurgical enhancement and still claim to be free of plastic surgery. And thanks to their lower cost and convenience, people who aren’t celebrities can benefit from these treatments, too.
If wearing a crop top or cutout style this spring would make you feel like The Martian or The Big Short rather than a leading lady, don’t worry. Here are 3 nonsurgical ways to attain a sleeker look without drastic measures:
- Ultherapy®: Celebrity skin is tighter than some Hollywood circles thanks to treatments such as Ultherapy. Think of it as way to keep your skin tight as you age and maybe even delay a facelift. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to promote the rejuvenation of the most delicate areas of the face, including the chin, neck, and brows. Results are subtle and gradual. In other words, you can keep them guessing.
- CoolSculpting®: It’s no longer one of Tinsel Town’s best-kept secrets. Several celebrities have admitted to favoring CoolSculpting for nonsurgical fat reduction, including Molly Sims and Khloe Kardashian. This FDA-cleared, noninvasive alternative to liposuction requires little-to-no downtime, making it perfect for a busy schedule. Patients from Syracuse and the greater Capital Region receive CoolSculpting treatments at our Albany, NY practice to target stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Be sure to check out our before-and-after gallery.
- KYBELLA®: KYBELLA is currently one of our most popular nonsurgical treatments. When injected into the area beneath the chin, KYBELLA works to eliminate fat that contributes to a so-called “double chin.” Whether you dare to wear a plunging neckline or just want to feel better in your T-shirt and jeans, KYBELLA can give you that extra boost of confidence.
Another trend we’ve seen recently, both in entertainment headlines and here in Albany, is the increase in body-positive messages. As a plastic surgeon, I have always understood that confidence must come from within, and no procedure, surgical or nonsurgical, is a cure-all for insecurity. I salute celebrities such as Ariel Winter, who made headlines when she bared her breast reduction scars on the red carpet. It’s not my goal to turn you into a celebrity, but to help you feel like a rising star in your own life.
