Plastic Surgery Trending: Kate’s nose!
The “Kate Effect” of Kate Middleton has extended past clothes and jewelry and has now peaked at people copying her face! Sources say that the amount of people asking for a “cute nose like Kate” has tripled since 2011. They cite the reason behind her “perfect” nose as the angle: It is slightly upturned with just the right degree of slope. Although we are not sure her nose is the “perfect” one (everyone is different!) it definitely is VERY cute!
The Genetics of a “Gummy Smile”
When you smile, do you see just your teeth, your teeth and a little gum, or mostly gum? If it is the latter, you can thank your genetics! Many people find themselves bothered by a “gummy smile.” Often due to small teeth, a short upper lip, or excessive gum tissue, there is a way to correct the proportions.
Surgery, called a gingivectomy, used to be the most common corrective treatment. Although effective, it can be costly and painful. Now, many plastic surgeons use Botox! By injecting Botox into the upper lip to paralyze the muscles — and prevent them from rising so high — gummy smiles become just smiles.
