Older men ‘are increasingly having Botox’


Middle-aged men have Botox too.Older men are increasingly looking towards Botox to keep them looking young, according to one expert.

Plastic surgeon Taimur Shoaib told the Express that a few years ago, it was only women and gay men who chose to have the treatment.

However, he now said he sees "middle-aged husbands and fathers" too as they attempt to compete with their younger counterparts at work.

He explained that having fewer wrinkles gives them more confidence.

Botox expert Shami Thomas told the newspaper that she thinks there is much less stigma attached to treatments such as Botox now that 'manly' men in the public eye are known to have them.

"There has been a major change in attitudes and the male grooming market has risen," she commented.

Dr Allan Parungao recently said in a piece for the San Francisco Chronicle that Botox is popular with men because it noticeably improves their looks but does not have a lengthy recovery time.

BBC presenter ‘was advised to have Botox to further career’


Miriam O'Reilly from Countryfile has claimed her producers suggested she got Botox.A former presenter of BBC One's Countryfile has said she was advised to get Botox in order to further her career.

Miriam O'Reilly, 53, said she was advised by a programme director on her way to shoot scenes outdoors that she would "have to be careful about those wrinkles when high definition comes in".

She also claimed a director commented: "It's time for Botox."

Ms O'Reilly is pursuing a claim against the BBC at an employment tribunal for ageism and sexism after she was removed from Countryfile in 2009.

She had previously spent 25 years with the broadcasting corporation.

Last month, cosmetic surgery expert Dr Allan Parungao said in an article for the San Francisco Chronicle that he expects more 'baby boomer' men to get Botox in the coming years.

Botox patient: I’m thrilled with the results


Botox has helped a stylist get rid of his deep smile lines.A patient who recently had Botox has said he is really pleased with the results.

Stylist Adrien Fields of the Huffington Post said he was bothered by his "unusually deep" nasolabial fold lines (the smile lines running from the nose to the outer corner of the lips) and decided to have a non-invasive procedure to correct them.

He reported being pleasantly surprised that the Botox injections did not hurt much at all and pointed out that a little work now could prevent him from needing a facelift in future.

"A few days later, my small bruise fading, I'm thrilled with the results. I don't look older or young, just slightly better. You'd never know that I'd had anything done," Mr Fields remarked.

Earlier this month, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons reported that men had 14.5 per cent more Botox last year than in 2008, according to figures cited by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Texan arrested for carrying out emergency dentistry without licence


Anyone in need of emergency dentistry should seek a qualified practitioner, a recent case has highlighted.  The importance of seeking an accredited professional when in need of emergency dentistry or other oral healthcare has been highlighted following a case in the US.

Julio de la Fuente, 54 and from Texas, was arrested over the weekend for practising dentistry without a licence.

His patients had complained about the poor dental work they had received and police were called to visit his surgery.

Although he told officers he had a degree in dentistry from the University of Michigan, calls to the institution revealed he had no such qualification.

He was also not registered by the State Board of Dental Examiners and had already been ordered to cease practising last year.

Mr de la Fuente has since been banned from carrying out dental work and has been released on bail.

Earlier this month, an unlicensed dentist from San Francisco was also prosecuted after carrying out dental implants and emergency dentistry unlawfully.

Mario Alfredo Pacheco had caused infections in some cases due to his shoddy work, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Unlicensed US dentist prosecuted


A US dentist who worked without a licence has been prosecuted.An unlicensed dentist from San Francisco has been prosecuted after working for three years and injuring his patients, according to a local newspaper.

Dental implants and emergency dentistry were both administered by Mario Alfredo Pacheco, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Some people paid thousands of dollars for unwanted treatment, including fillings, extractions and root canals, but have been unable to get their money back.

He caused infections by installing dental implants into one victim and was also said to have not sterilised his equipment properly.

The man, who worked in Oakland, was accused of inflicting great bodily injury, practising dentistry when he was unlicensed, risking harm to his patients and administering an anaesthetic to help commit a crime.

A spokeswoman for the district attorney, Nancy O’Malley, described Mr Pacheco’s work as “poorly done”.

Meanwhile, across the pond, the General Dental Council has prosecuted nine illegally-practising dentists in the UK so far this year.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800012792-ADNFCR
