A company advertising liposuction is using the Duchess of Cambridge as a come-on, with an ad appearing in England urging women to “Get a waist like Kate.”
“the Duchess of Cambridge’s tiny waist and waspish shape has become the envy of many women across the UK,” the ad states, according to the Daily Mail.
“Kate, 29, has said in the past that a healthy and balanced diet and sensible exercise regime is behind her slim and athletic figure,” the ad goes on to say. “however, even these traditional methods of keeping your body in shape don’t work for all women.”
The paper notes that L.K. Bennett nude Sledge heels are selling like crazy because of they’re a favorite of the Duchess.
So why not a plastic surgery procedure?
Several reasons, plastic surgeons say. for starters, Kate Middleton hasn’t had lipo and never needed it.
Here’s what some Orange County plastic surgeons are saying .
Dr. John Di Saia of San Clemente and Orange calls this type of ad campaign ”ridiculous.” He writes in his blog that genetics has handed Middleton “the gem of thinness,” with her ectomorphic body frame, and typically, women with that body type don’t need to get fat suctioned out of them.
“Inferring that liposuction is the solution for women who want to look like Kate Middleton is an empty promise to say the least. Then again having any cosmetic procedure with the goal of looking like someone else is an equation that is likely to lead to disappointment.
“Liposuction like any operation has risks and benefits. A frequent risk of any cosmetic procedure (at least in the hands of an honest and competent surgeon) is that of unrealistic expectations. the expectation that the ‘medical company’ is hinting at here is pretty ridiculous.
“A woman can expect liposuction to reduce fatty tissues when they are present in average or greater quantities. A woman with anything but an ectomorphic body frame could not reasonably use Kate Middleton as a target for anything within plastic surgery.”
Dr. Terry Dubrow, a plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, calls the ad “a classic example of over-promising and under-delivering that leads to dissatisfied cosmetic surgery patients.”
“A person’s waist can be significantly reduced by liposuction sometimes, but a narrow waist is primarily a function of the width of the pelvic bones and the height of the mid torso, variables not affected by fat removal.”
Dr. Edward Jonas Domanskis, also a plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, says, ”unfortunately, it is unrealistic for most women to end up with Kate’s waist. She either has good genes or is starving herself!”
“Liposuction’s results in the waist are really dependent on what structure the person begins with-the bones, muscles, even the thickness of the skin. only the thickness of the fat is addressed and can be modified with liposuction, liposculpting, no matter what type you use-Smart Lipo, Zeltiq,Water Jet, Vaser, etc. If the fatty component of the person is larger, i.e. the belly, and the lower back, then, the waist can be reduced quite dramatically. If the fatty layer is not that thick, then the improvement will not be that great.
“the other component is the intrabdominal fat, for that is not reachable with liposuction. Also, a tummy tuck will further ‘cinch’ the waist in by tightening the abdominal muscles and putting them closer together.”
Though the ad referred to Middleton, the one shown in the Daily Mail did not include her picture. the photos above are by Getty Images. .
