Have you heard the news? Plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancements aren’t so taboo anymore. Just last week, Kaley Cuoco spoke candidly about her nose and boob jobs. This week, Kylie Jenner’s dermatologist, Dr. Simon Ourian, has revealed the two most popular procedures requested at his Beverly Hills practice.
(Oh, and did we mention he treats Lady Gaga, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Kim Kardashian, too?!)
Dr. Ourian – recently spoke to Popsugar about the most on-trend procedures. And they are - drumroll please - the Brazilian Butt Lift and permanent facial contouring.
So what is this ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’ business, exactly? "When done properly, we can offer the appearance of a lift,” he said. “The BBL we offer is non-surgical; there is no cutting, no implants, and no general anaesthesia." Apparently, the whole thing is usually over in 30 minutes or less. (Meaning you could have THREE butt lifts in the time it takes to watch an episode of Pretty Little Liars!)
Here it is in action:
It does cost between $15 000 and $40 000, so the price tag doesn’t exactly match the time frame.
On the other hand, permanent facial contouring involves using dermal filler to enhance a person’s chin, cheeks and jawline. It’s like a contouring palette, without the, ah, palette.
While he did play it down, the recovery for permanent facial contouring doesn’t sound like a walk in the park. Dr. Ourian said, “Though there may be some social downtime, like bruising, there is no practical downtime, and clients can return to their normal activities immediately.”
No word on how much the contouring will set you back, but we expect it to be in the thousands.
Does this all sounds a bit exxy to you? We agree. Do you know what’s really, really cheap? (As in, doesn’t cost any money at all…) Not getting a cosmetic procedure.
