Have you ever wondered what is causing that recurring zit on your chin? Or the rash on your cheeks? You may not have to wonder any more! While Chinese medicine practitioners have diagnosed medical problems based on facial symptoms for hundreds of years, Western researchers recently confirmed what Eastern healers have long known: the condition of our skin reveals a great deal about our physical and emotional health. In fact, like parts of the foot (think reflexology), segments of the face are also linked to parts of the body. Each part of the face (cheeks, mouth, chin, forehead and between the eyebrows) can be linked to an corresponding underlying health concern.

Question: I’m 32, female, and I live in New York City. I’d like a rhinoplasty procedure but I’m somewhat of a celebrity on Broadway. Is it possible to get a nose job that looks natural but is also subtle?
Answer: As a facial plastic surgeon I take care of a number of celebrities in theater, film and radio in New York City and around the world, and I am often asked to perform subtle finesse celebrity rhinoplasty. Many times this is in combination with functional nasal plastic surgery. High-definition film and television accentuate irregularities on celebrities that are otherwise blessed physically, and that nearly imperceptible in “real life”. Accordingly, the surgical changes must be natural, and perfect on high-definition view. Recently, I performed a combined functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty on a television anchor person, and she was back “on-air” five days later. Her co-workers never suspected that she had a rhinoplasty. In fact, they guessed that she had a breast augmentation because of the new “push-up” bra she was wearing!!

Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz’s commercial for L’Oréal was banned in the UK for being misleading. They say she was photoshopped/ airbrushed so her complexion looked smoother and more even than it already is.
