Rob Kardashian: New Man, New Confidence with Brotox Injections

The Kardashian sisters are no stranger to cosmetic surgery and it is no surprise that brother Rob has been influenced. Radar Online reported an insider of the National Enquirer quoted, “Rob was complaining about his face drooping and that he’s starting to look old”. It seems his sister Kim was the push and shove he needed. “Kim told him to stop whining and put his money where his mouth is. She turned him on to her trusted plastic surgeon and convinced him to go for a Botox treatment. Rob was all for it and made an appointment right away."

It has also been reported that Rob Kardashian may have had his biggest heartbreak after discovering his girlfriend Rita Ora had been cheating on him. Some tabloids are blasting Rob for going through with the Botox injections treatment, but let’s face it people, everyone goes through some kind of emotional trauma after a break up, whether its eating a gallon of ice cream, going on a shopping spree, visiting your salon or your cosmetic surgery doctor to feel a little pampered.

Khloe Kardashian Rumored to Have Had Lip Plumping Treatment

Khloe Kardashian - Maxim Photo ShootKhloe Kardashian made headlines recently after the paparazzi caught her with the infamous “trout pout” – the result of too many injectable fillers in the lips. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister appeared to have some very swollen and lumpy lips after leaving a Beverly Hills salon last week and many are suspecting that that star had cosmetic surgery. Celebrity plastic surgery doctor Dr. Anthony Youn did not treat Khloe Kardashian but believes that the star did have some type of injectable filler. He tells RadarOnline.com, “Khloe has a trout pout! The excessively plump appearance of her lips could be due to injections of a filler like Juvederm. Her upper lip is larger than her lower lip, causing her mouth to resemble a trout’s. Most injectable fillers last about 6 months in the lips, so given enough time we may see her lips shrink to a smaller and more typical size.” Another plastic surgery doctor, Dr. Michael Fiorellio who is based in New York City, made a similar conclusion. He suspects that Khloe had some type of filler treatment because, “Her lips look swollen and bruised. The product looks lumpy as well”. Dr. Fiorellio is suggesting that this Kardashian sister had either Juvederm or Restylane injections to make her lips appear larger and fuller. Injectable fillers are among the most popular types of non-invasive cosmetic enhancements around the country, and are an attractive option for women who want to add volume to their lips, fill out hollows in their cheeks, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They’re also more affordable than having surgery and can be a convenient option for those who don’t want to deal with the long downtime and recovery process associate with a surgical procedure like lip implants or a facelift.

If you want luscious lips like Khloe Kardashian search for a cosmetic surgery doctor in your area now!

Dermal Fillers Can Delay the Need for Plastic Surgery

Dermal Fillers Can Delay the Need for Plastic Surgery If you’ve been thinking about plastic or cosmetic surgery to get rid of wrinkles and lines, you may be able to defy aging without having to go under the knife.

An unnamed plastic surgeon from Texas recently told a consultation company that Botox and other non-surgical treatments be effective for postponing the need for any type of surgery. The logic behind this is that patients who want to maintain their youthful appearance without spending a lot of money can turn to minimally-invasive procedures such as Botox injections and other dermal fillers and get the same results as surgery.
