Teen has jaw rebuilt from his own leg bone

Fri

Sixteen-year-old, Adam McCalmont, has undergone a nineteen-hour reconstructive surgery after discovering that the ache in his jaw was in fact Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. A tumour had developed on the side of his face that grew to around the size of an orange.

The surgery was so risky that his family were told there was a significant chance Adam could be left paralysed, or worse, that he might not even survive it. In order to give Adam the best chance of a positive outcome, the tumour was subjected to two intensive rounds of chemotherapy until it had shrunk enough to avoid his major artery in surgery. The operation consisted of removing half the boy’s jaw along with glands, and then transplanting bone and arteries from his leg into his face.

Following the surgery complications meant that he now has a large hole behind his ear due to infection, which is being closely monitored. Despite this Adam is currently recovering well, and is being fed a liquid diet to build his strength. Adam’s family are optimistic about the success of the surgery and are keen to raise awareness of the disease on behalf of the Boom Foundation.

 

 

Nicole Scherzinger shows off seemingly fuller lips

Sat

 

Speculation has grown as to whether the X Factor judge and former Pussy Cat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger, has undergone lip filler treatment. Her latest dramatic Instagram selfie showed her pouting her very full lips, in a close up shot. Fans became suspicious after her lips looked sizably bigger than in previous posts.

Nicole took to Instagram whilst in London to celebrate the sun shining in the winter months, however fans were more interested in her growing pout. There was no question in fans’ minds that the star looked great, however they were divided in opinion as to whether they approved of her possible lip fillers. One fan wrote, “Why? You’re a stunning woman, Stop with the lips already… It cheapens your natural beauty,” yet another felt that her lips looked ‘beautiful.’

Nicole has been asked in the past if she has ever had fillers, Botox, or plastic surgery, to which she answered no. Nicole attributed her great complexion to a healthy diet, exercise and plenty of water, however it is likely that this new selfie will raise more questions that she’ll undoubtedly be asked to answer. Her fans will be interested to hear whether she denies the rumours, given that her lips seem obviously bigger than before.

 

 

 

Khloe Kardashian addicted to Botox and fillers

Thu

Khloe Kardashian’s strict exercise and diet regime is only part of the star’s transformation over the years. A friend told Now Magazine that the ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star has spent a small fortune on cosmetic surgery, stating that the bill currently stands at around £1.5 million before adding that Khloe is obsessed with fillers and Botox

 

Khloe has stacked up quite a hefty surgery bill over the years, with a large proportion of the work being done on her face and neck. Some of the work Khloe Kardashian is said to have had so far includes, having facial fat moved from under her eyes to her cheekbones, Botox in her Jaw, temples and eye area, ear reshaping, jaw bone shaving along with laser treatments and acid peels.  It has been revealed that Khloe undergoes cosmetic laser treatments on her face and neck on a weekly basis and Botox every few weeks. In addition to the listed cosmetic works, Khloe has also had two nose jobs with a third planned in the future.

 

A good indicator of how much Khloe has changed could be seen last month when she went to visit her grandmother MJ, and was completely unrecognisable to the 82-year-old.

Dr Zoe Williams provides info on Botox treatment in This Morning appearance

Fri

This Morning hosts Ruth and Eamonn were joined by doctors Zoe Williams and Dr Raj Singh, who offered their advice about how to get the best from cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers. The two procedures are extremely popular but viewers of the show said they were still unsure about how to organise the treatment and where to go.

One caller said that she had lost a lot of weight following gastric bypass surgery but the reduced fat in her face had left her with wrinkles; Dr Zoe Williams advised her that Botox could be helpful but it depends what she is ‘trying to achieve’ after her weight loss. With many of the wrinkles gathering around her eyes, Zoe suggested that she tries fillers instead, as Botox may not be successful in this area of the face. She recommended a consultation with a surgeon to see what would work best considering the condition of her skin.

The doctors also advised strongly against ‘DIY Botox’ products that can be purchased from other countries, as well as recommending other ways to avoid getting wrinkles in the first place, including avoiding sunlight, quitting smoking, and maintaining a healthy diet.

 

Rylan Clark Neal asks This Morning host whether he has had Botox

Sat

 

Rylan Clark Neal is becoming a firm fixture on the This Morning sofa and it seems he is becoming more and more comfortable with his role on the ITV breakfast show, even to the point where he doesn’t mind asking probing questions to the show’s hosts, Eamonn and Ruth.

Rylan was presenting his usual segment on the world of show business when he decided to complement This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes on how well he looked by questioning him about whether or not he has had Botox injections. Shocked by the line of questioning, Eamonn immediately responded that he had just eaten a lot on holiday. Rylan said that Eamonn looked ‘really well’ before adding ‘I know you’ve had a haircut, but you look younger.’

Eamonn’s wife and co-presenter Ruth Langsford was immediately suspicious of the flattery, although Rylan claimed indignantly that he was only giving a compliment ‘where a compliment was due.’

Eamonn replied that he would be going on a diet with wife Ruth after the show aired, but she retorted ‘Speak for yourself, I’m all right!’

 

Study shows that citizens of ancient Pompeii had perfect teeth due to diet

Fri

Ancient Romans had perfect teeth because of a low sugar diet, according to studies that have involved scanning the remains of those killed in the city of Pompeii in AD79. Scientists appointed by the Archaeological Superintendence of Pompeii carried out CAT scans on the preserved remains of people who died after Mt Vesuvius erupted and destroyed much of the ancient city.

Researchers were surprised to see how perfect the teeth were when the results of the scan were shown; it is believed that this is due to low sugar, high fibre diets, and the ancient Romans may have had a better diet than modern man.

Dental expert Elisa Vanacore, director of the site, said that the people of Pompeii ate a lot of fruit and vegetables but did not include much sugar in their diets; she also observed that ‘Studying their teeth could reveal a lot more about their lives.’ This suggests that the Romans ‘ate better than we did’ and this would explain why they have very healthy teeth. As well as perfect dental health, the scans revealed cranial injuries which are likely to have been the cause of death as rubble fell from the sky during the eruption of the volcano.

Actress Amanda Redman admits to Botox injections

Thu

TV actress Amanda Redman has said in an interview that she has turned to Botox and filler injections in an attempt to hold back the years; she also added that she would not rule out surgery in the future. Amanda, 58, spoke to Woman and Home about cosmetic treatment and said that all women want to look younger.

The New Tricks star said ‘There is not a woman alive who wouldn’t like to be 18 again; don’t let anyone fool you into thinking otherwise.’ She went on to say that she has tried Botox and fillers in the past but decided to stop, although she has not sworn off the treatment for good and might try it again one day.

Amanda also credits a healthy diet with her youthful appearance but added that she was not against having cosmetic surgery to get rid of the signs of aging saying ‘I never say never about anything. At the moment though, I don’t feel the need. I’m alright with myself. In a years’ time, I might not be.’

Speaking about her profession, the mother-of-one said that there is constant pressure to look young and retain a certain appearance to try and keep the job offers coming. She said ‘I’ve spent my career going up and down in weight and I’ve always gone ‘I don’t care what they think’ because real women aren’t sticks and I like playing real women.’

Scottish couple buy each other Botox as anniversary present

Thu

A couple from Scotland have decided that Botox would be the perfect gift for their first anniversary and purchased the his & hers treatments for each other to celebrate the milestone. According to the Daily Record, Tracey Alexander and Stephen Halleran visited the clinic for the Botox injections in order to give themselves a fresher, more youthful appearance; Tracey has just turned 40 and Stephen is 47 – both felt that frown lines on their foreheads made them look angry.

As well as Botox, Tracey opted for filler injections into her lips and she could not be happier with the results, she told the paper; ‘Stephen thinks my lips are brilliant – much more kissable, which has now committed me to having them done every year as I don’t want to go back to skinny lips.

Explaining their unusual choice for an anniversary present, Tracey said that they couldn’t think of anything conventional that they might want and so decided that Botox would be a good choice; she said ‘I’m always on a diet so I didn’t want chocolates. I’m not that keen on the smell of flowers. I’m probably non-traditional and awkward to get presents for anyway.’ She added that the couple feel they now have ‘a new beginning in an older body.’

Food can be used to whiten tooth enamel

Thu

It might sound like a strange way to whiten your teeth but one Harley Street dentist is suggesting that the food you eat could actually improve the appearance of your teeth; Dr Anthony Zybutz, of the TDC Implant Centre, said there are some food products that can actively whiten the enamel.

Dr Zybutz said that the public’s desire for beautiful white teeth is nothing new, with some whitening practices going back as far as ancient Egypt. He explains that ‘there were no whitening gels or bleaches during the time of the Egyptians’ so the people used to turn to diet in order to get rid of stains. Dr Zybutz said the pharaohs ‘combined ground pumice stone with vinegar to create a paste in an effort to restore the natural colour.’

Modern man might employ a whitening treatment before considering general diet, but Dr Zybutz added that there are certain foods that could scrub teeth clean and even rinse the enamel naturally while you are chewing. Crunchy fruits and vegetables, such as apples, carrots, and celery, act like a toothbrush when they are being chewed and could scrub stains away, and even cheese can prevent plaque from building up on the teeth. Avoiding products that can stain the teeth should be obvious, as Dr Zybutz advises ‘if it would stain your shirt, it will do the same to your teeth.’ 

Diet fads could be damaging to teeth

Tue

Juice cleanses and trendy diets could cause serious damage to dental health, according to a top dentist. Dr Sameer Patel, Clinical Director at a London dental practice has warned against following diet fads too closely and detailed the worst offenders for dental damage.

The juice cleanse, favoured by celebrities, is a diet that involves swapping meals for smoothies and juices; these products have a high acid content, which will wear away the enamel and lead to sensitivity in the teeth, as well as decay. Dr Patel spoke to the Daily Mail, saying ‘Fruit’s natural sugar, fructose, is a common cause of cavities as the bacteria in the mouth feed on it, so be careful when you do consume juice as part of a balanced diet.’ He advises drinking juice through a straw and waiting at least thirty minutes before brushing your teeth afterwards.

Another common problem with new diets, such as low-carb diet plans, is ketosis; this is a condition that is caused by the breakdown of fat in the body and results in bad breath. Dr Patel explains ‘Ketosis is brought on entirely by your diet and unfortunately no amount of flossing and brushing will combat the smell so think twice before cutting out carbs completely and stick to healthy ones… these will keep bad breath away whilst staying trim.’
