The Fountain of Youth at Your Fingertips By ANNA JANE GROSSMAN ON a recent flight from New York to Los Angeles, Chris Salgardo noticed an attractive woman sitting a few rows ahead of him. “She looked like she was in her 40′s,” he said. “She was beautiful with great skin. She had an overall very supple complexion.” This is a significant compliment coming from Mr. Salgardo, the president of Kiehl’s U.S.A., a skin- and hair-care company. But then he looked down and saw the woman’s hands hammering away on her laptop. “They were veiny, crepey and had brown spots all over them,” Mr. Salgardo said. Suddenly, his estimation of her age jumped at least a decade. “The hands were a dead giveaway,” he said. Once upon a time, people became older and it showed. Thanks to dermatologists and plastic surgeons who made it their mission to tackle visible age, future generations – at least those who will be able to afford it – may never have to endure sagging jowls or droopy eyelids. But the war being waged against dark spots, ropey veins and the various other symptoms of the no-longer-youthful hand is a relatively recent battle, one that can be more challenging than combating facial wrinkles. The skin on the hands is generally thinner than facial skin. It has the consistency of an eyelid and may be more sensitive to the indignities of time. For some people, the battle is being fought at night, with moisturizing gloves and thick coats of specially formulated hand creams – a skin care sector that has grown more than 60 percent globally in the last four years, according to a July report from the Nielsen Company, a marketing research company in Illinois.

These Stars Look Over-inflated! Have these celebrities been plumping up with fillers to stay young and beautiful? Their makeovers have left them looking like they’re ready to pop IN TOUCH MARCH 22, 2010 The latest beauty treatments have turned back time for some women – but unfortunately, they also seem to have turned some Hollywood stars into alien creatures! “Fillers like Juvederm XC, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse add volume so you can look young again,” explains Dr. Gerald D. Ginsberg, medical director at TriBeCa MedSpa in NYC. But it’s easy to get carried away, resulting in fish lips and chipmunk cheeks – and that’s in addition to melon-sized boobs. “Women start to believe, ‘If a little is good, more must be better.’” says Dr. Michael Salzhauer of The Real Dr. Miami in Miami. And when it conies to filling up, it appears that these celebs forgot to say when! SHE CAN’T HIDE IT While Madonna has said, “I’m not going to have a press conference if I have plastic surgery,” Dr. Salzhauer thinks the Material Girl, 51, has packed 4 cc of filler into each cheek. SHE KNOWS IT’S BAD Lisa Rinna told In Touch she “went too far” with Juvederm injections in her cheeks. “I don’t want to look weird,” admits the star, who also has permanent silicone implants in her lips. KIM HAS A NEW FACE Lil’ Kim loves being the center of attention, but now it’s her face that has everyone shocked – she looks like a different person! “It looks like she injected apples into her cheeks!” notes Dr. Ginsberg. LINDSAY’S FULLY LOADED Lindsay Lohan says, “It’s sad and disgusting that anybody would have work done at my age.” But Dr. Salzhauer thinks the 23-year-old got “way too much filler.” […]
EVEN AFTER 10 EXTREME PROCEDURES, HEIDI STILL ISN’T SATISFIED! When Heidi Montag stepped out at the opening of Liquid Pool Lounge in Las Vegas, the sounds of partying were nearly drowned out by gasps of horror. “People were in shock at how huge her boobs look,” says a witness “She looked ridiculous” Adds a second onlooker. “She looked like she was going to fall over. her boobs were so big!” In fact, five months after her infamous 10-hour. 10-procedure plastic surgery marathon, the only person who doesn’t seem to think Heidi made a massive mistake is Heidi herself. “I love the way my plastic surgery looks,” she gushed at the April 10 event. “and I would definitely get it again.” ANOTHER BOOB JOB Alarmingly, the procedure Heidi. 23. longs for most is a third breast augmentation! “I definitely want another boob job down the line.” she recently told Life & Style.” I didn’t get them as big as I’d originally wanted.” It’s hard to imagine her boobs, which she says are between an E- and an F- cup, getting bigger! She’s already had to make drastic changes to her life to accommodate them.” I do less running now.” the fitness freak tells Ltfe&Style. Unable to fit into her old wardrobe, she says she’s resorted to designing her own outfits “so they fit perfectly.” She even told Ryan Seacrest she’s scared to hug people “because I’ve had so much done… Im very fragile” But there’s no stopping Heidi, who got her surgery despite husband Spencer Pratt’s objections. On the upcoming season premiere of The Hills, moments after Heidi unveils her surgery to her horrified mom, Darlere, she confesses, “I actually wanted bigger ones, but they couldn’t fit in.” ADDICTED TO SURGERY Heidi shows […]
Modern marvel: Free iSurgeon app lets you imagine results of cosmetic operation Modern marvel: Free iSurgeon app lets you imagine results of cosmetic operation By Claire Coleman Last updated at 12:01 PM on 26th April 2010 The iPhone application is the brainchild of plastic surgeon Dr Michael Salzhauer Choosing to have plastic surgery is a huge commitment, and until now patients could only imagine what the results might look like. But a revolutionary new iPhone application is about to change that. Called iSurgeon, it’s easy to use – simply take a photograph of the body part you wish to change then glide your fingers over the screen to increase or decrease its dimensions. The app is the brainchild of plastic surgeon Dr Michael Salzhauer – who invented it in an attempt to cut down on the time he spent in consultations. Now, potential patients can take a picture, alter it as desired with iSurgeon, then email it to Dr Salzhauer at his Miami clinic – and he can advise whether the changes are feasible and how much they’d cost. ‘A lot of people wonder what they would look like if they could change themselves’ says Dr Salzhauer. ‘This will help them find out if they are actually interested and, if so, they can seek out a certified plastic surgeon to follow it up.’ The app has already been a huge hit in the U.S. – Dr Salzhauer has received more than 100,000 images from potential patients – and it’s now set to sweep Britain. And the best bit? Far from being over-inflated, it’s completely free to download.
iSurgeon: App Lets You Shop for Cosmetic Doctors on Phone June 26, 2010 iSurgeon: App Lets You Shop for Cosmetic Doctors on Phone That smart phone isn’t just for Sudoku and weather forecasts anymore… Check your e-mail, Facebook account and text messages? Duh. Get the play-by-play of your favorite MLB team? Sure. Find a decent Mexican restaurant in your neighborhood before your date tonight? Easy.

It seems that—for anywhere from free to $1.99—you can submit questions to board-certified plastic surgeons, search for qualified doctors by zip code, view video commentary by doctors and play games that allow you to see what you’d look like with, say, a nose job—all with the tap of a screen. For example, the free Plastic Surgery Channel app let’s you read surgeon profiles, map doctors’ office locations, and view recent Q&A sessions between other plastic surgery inquirers and board-certified surgeons. If you’re willing to fork up $1.99, you can see what you would look like with plastic surgery, and be the doctor too with iSurgeon, created by Dr. Michael Salzhauer, who is also the author of a children’s book about cosmetic surgery called “My Beautiful Mommy.” The “game mode” replicates common procedures like tummy tucks and butt lifts, and the “advanced surgery mode” allows you to snap photos of yourself (or your friends) and upload them to the “operating room,” where you can try your hand at a makeover. Then, if you’re brave enough, you can e-mail your friends or post the pictures on your social […]
The Doctor Can See You Now NEW YORK. THURSDAY. JANUARY 21.2010 PLASTIC surgeons used to dispense advice primarily in private, face-to-face consultations, during which they would address a patient’s concerns and weigh the merits of surgery. These days, plastic surgeons offer their opinions on the Web, sometimes for all to see. One platform is RealSelf.com, where plastic surgeons answer queries and introduce themselves to patients. PostYourFace.com, which made its debut in December, allows the brave to ask Dr. Robert Freund, a plastic surgeon with an office in Manhattan, to evaluate photographs they post publicly. Viewers vote on whether Jane Doe needs a “smaller nose” or “more voluptuous lips.” If this kind of crowd-sourcing lacks appeal, Dr. Michael A. Salzhauer hopes iSurgeon, his iPhone application, will draw you in. Users can tweak a picture of themselves while listening to a chain saw roar. In a phone interview, Dr. Salzhauer said, iSurgeon “is a great party game,” allowing strangers to snap pictures of each other and then augment a small chest or shrink a big nose. He added that iSurgeon was also “a useful tool for people seriously thinking about plastic surgery” or “patients who want privacy.” I toyed around, making modest changes to my nose and stomach, and found the results worthy of a fun-house mirror.
