The Secret for Golden Globes-Caliber Beauty

Cosmetic Surgery for Real, by Richard Buckley, MD, Milford, PA

Many of us watched the 2014 Golden Globes, anticipating not only the winners but also the Red Carpet fashion. As a cosmetic surgeon, I study beauty. I look for trends and what defines beauty in society.

The stand-out women on the Red Carpet Sunday night had one thing in common: A beautiful smile.

Sure, the dresses made statements. But stars of all ages, from Cate Blanchett to Jennifer Lawrence, Robin Wright and Julia Roberts, captivated photographic images with their stunning smiles.

The same is true off the Red Carpet. Women who have beautiful smiles stand out. They look young, vibrant, active, healthy and, of course, content.

And, as a cosmetic surgeon, I can tell you there’s much more to a beautiful smile than nice teeth. Teeth are ideally framed by youthful, attractive lips. Lips are as important as those teeth in creating a glowing smile.

Aging or genetics doesn’t have to rob a woman of her youthful, vibrant smile. Today’s filler options include filler types that help to plump and shape thin or misshapen lips. (And by plumping, I mean carefully sculpting beautifully shaped lips—not injecting filler, so they look like awkward balloons or have a trout-pout.) We also use fillers to address the vertical lines that can take away from a youthful smile. All this often can be done in minutes during one’s lunch hour. Patients can go right back to work or play.

We also use a patient’s own fat (fat transfer), for patients who prefer not to use fillers.

Once you have achieved the look you want, it’s a matter of simple maintenance and skin care to continue looking great, year after year.
