TREND ALERT: NOT YOUR MOTHER’S NOSE JOB!

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

rhino-artRhinoplasty from twenty years ago is very different from what is being done today.  “Patients today are educated and seek extremely natural-looking results,” says world-renowned, board-certified, plastic surgeon, Dr. Barry M. Weintraub.  The founder of 5th Avenue Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Manhattan recently participated in the 36th Annual Cutting Edge Aesthetic Symposium held in New York City, which focused entirely on Rhinoplasty Surgery.  Dr. Weintraub shares with Beauty Undercover some of the newest techniques for getting that perfect, yet natural-looking, nose.

  • TIP GRAFTING – There is new attention being paid to the all-important tip of the nose, which determines so much of the “character” of the nose.  According to Dr. Weintraub, “Finesse in tip grafting by means of support up the center of the nose, and with nostril-arch grafts, helps produce a most natural-looking nose, and can correct the plunging tip upon smiling that often makes people look older than they are.”  The focus on the nose’s profile is gaining attention since people are increasingly aware of how they look from every angle due to the popularity of photographs.
  • NEW CARTILAGE SUTURING TECHNIQUES – In the past, the cartilage of the nose (the lower part of the nose) was simply trimmed and discarded to reduce the bulbousness, but just trimming is no longer enough. “If you think of the cartilage as being too big for the skin,” says Dr. Weintraub, “you can understand that after trimming the obvious part, the remaining cartilage of the tip and nostril rim must be sutured in order to make it proportionate. This brings definition to the tip and decreases width.”  The result is a nose that is in harmony with the rest of the face.

return-to-romance

At Chanel’s Métiers d’Art runway show in Paris, models returned to an era of romance, civility, and grace.  Hairstylist, Sam McKnight, accessorized loose ponytails with brightly-colored silk flowers, complimenting feminine, rose-kissed lips; yet, the unexpected appearance of stark, white-rimmed eyes, by Tom Pecheux (who created sultry looks at last week’s Victoria’s Secret show) may be Spring’s boldest statement.  Karl Lagerfeld muse, Cara Delevingne, led the procession, followed by a trio of famous offspring:  Georgia May Jagger, Lily-Rose Depp, and Sofia Richie.

In October we revisited the über-chic international skincare line, Erno Laszlo.  With its revered Hollywood legacy and tony European lineage, the brand has perfected some of the world’s most coveted complexions.  Following Dr. Laszlo’s belief that beautiful skin begins the moment you cleanse your face, the brand has introduced four travel-friendly, double-cleansing duos to address multiple global skin concerns.  Laszlo’s new Bespoke Double Cleanse Collection Duos were created with a mix-and-match approach to individual skincare concerns.  Each of the Cleansing Oils soothe and soften the complexion by gently breaking up dirt, makeup, and  impurities without stripping the skin’s moisture.  Soap inherently combats oil on contact, and these Cleansing Bars boast game-changing antioxidants and botanicals.  Exfoliate & Detox treats enlarged, clogged pores, dull and flaky skin, and pollutant build-up; Soothe & Calm focuses on sensitive skin, redness, tightness, and irritation; Hydrate & Nourish replenishes dry, dehydrated skin that is tight and lackluster; Firm & Lift rejuvenates lax skin which shows a marked decline in elasticity.

Erno Laszlo is offering a limited number of Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its Bespoke Double Cleanse Collection Duos (retail $28) simply by following them on Instagram (or Facebook if you don’t have) and entering  here.  Product selection will be at Sponsor’s election.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks from notification.
