Back in 2008, the CSI blog reported that more young people are having cosmetic plastic surgery, often to get a leg up in the completion for jobs.
(Read our report about plastic surgery and younger people.)
In all the T.V. coverage about the royal couple committing matrimony in the near future, nobody has mentioned how much better the future Queen looks, compared to just a few short years ago.
Alas, such is the risk of dating the future King of England – for nine long years. (The British press has nick-named her “waiting Katie.”) You’re gonna get your picture taken, over and over, year in, year out. No way around it.
So back in 2006, Kate Middleton – whom you’ve doubtless heard by now — is officially engaged to Prince William. We have so many pictures of Kate, we can see she had a slightly different look to her face….. which was still lovely, even with no nip or tuck at all.
It appears she had lower blepharoplasty, a procedure that removes under eye bags. The surgeon makes an incision just under the eye lashes or sometimes through the conjunctiva, the pink area you see when you pull the lower eyelid down. The surgeon then gently takes out a small fat roll that creates the eye bags by bulging through the skin and closes with sutures that stay in for only three to five days.
For comparison, look at some more before and after blepharoplasty pictures.
But if the surgeon takes too much from under the eyes, the patient 20 or 25 “years on” (that’s British speak for “later”) may have an under eye hollow look and need facial filler like Restylane or Juvederm to flesh things out again.
Kate’s nose was more difficult and required a plastic surgeon with great skill in rhinoplasty.
If you look closely, you can see Kate in 2006 had a slightly thicker nose and a slightly thicker nasal tip. When a plastic surgeon slims and refines a nose like that, the eye is thrown to the patient’s eyes which then seem much brighter.
Look at a few more rhinoplasty before and after pictures.
But doesn’t her royal-whatever-she-is-now look entirely natural? who would guess?
