Plastic Surgery Trends: 2014

Plastic surgery amongst celebrities is more common than a McDonald’s building! In Hollywood if you don’t have it, surgically enhance it so you can flaunt it.

Marilyn MonroeA top trend predicted is chin implants, this is to achieve the Hollywood glamour look after it was reported Marilyn Monroe herself had this surgery, the procedure leaves the client with a more defined chin. Since 2010 the amount of procedures has doubled and is set to continue throughout 2014.

Another trend for the year is the intimate surgery known as the labiaplasty or vaginoplasty, in the quest for women to have a ‘designer vagina’ this is know to be one of the UK’s fastest growing surgery treatment. The labiaplasty is designed to reshape or reduce the size of the labia minora (inner lips) of course this procedure isn’t just for medical reasons and can be purely for aesthetic purposes. The vaginoplasty is a treatment that tightens the area, a popular treatment for those that have given birth.

If 2014 has such a demand for plastic and cosmetic surgery then will 2015 be any different? Growing old naturally seems to be taboo, with such a high celebrity influence natural beauty is becoming a myth. In 2014 even your vagina has to be designer so there’s little hope that natural beauty will make a comeback.

Niccole Sisters: Walking Advertisements For Dad’s Surgery

Brittani and Charm Niccole adopted daughters of plastic surgeon Dr Michael Niccole have both had procedures done by their dad, the girls in their twenty’s have both had boob jobs and regular have Botox jabs and chemical peels in order to keep their skin looking youthful. At such a young age would they really need all these skin smoothing procedures? or is it just a case of using a short cut because their dad will happily operate on them? 

Charm’s first surgery came at a shocking age of 10, her belly button was re-shaped from an outie to an innie, at age 10 should it really matter what your belly button looks like? Personally I wasn’t aware that such a procedure existed but does 10 sound like a safe age to have it done? I personally don’t think so.  She also has Botox jabs to stop her sweating, this is fair enough if she has a condition that causes excess sweating but it cant be determined if this is the case.

Sister Brittani had her boob job at the legal age of 18 and claims it was the best day of her life, at 21 she also had a nose job, shouldn’t her parents have told her when she was growing up to be comfortable in her own skin? Penny her mother has always been against the procedures but has always backed down after constant begging.

It’s understandable that in the USA  body image seems a top priority but more should have been done to prevent the girls from wanting so much surgery, plastic surgery addiction isn’t uncommon and with all their ‘youthful’ treatments it seems they aren’t far off addiction.  When questioned about his work on the girls he simply defines it as ‘maintenance’ it hardly seems surprising then that he is happy enough to continue working on them.

Are the girls just a walking advertisement for their fathers work? In some ways yes, yes they are but it’s a choice they’ve made and if they decide one day to stop having surgery then I hope their dad will be fine with it rather than potentially using them as a way to showcase his work and gain more clients.
