Back in 2012 we shared the story of ex-stripper Renee Talley, the woman with butt implants gone totally wrong. After having her butt implants surgically inserted, Talley faced a major issue, her implant flipped all the way around inside of her butt. Leaving a very awkward looking outer appearance because the flat backside of the implant was showing through. The last thing any woman paying for butt implants wants is a flat butt, although that’s exactly what Talley got.
Any woman willing to go under the knife to alter her physical appearance wants to look good, and feels insecure when they don’t look their best. For all these reasons and more, the entire experience was rather traumatic for Renee. Despite her own feelings, she decided to share a video with the world highlighting what can happen if you get butt implants. Turns out, this isn’t that uncommon of a problem in regards to this procedure.
The effects of her butt implants extended well past the exterior, due to the surgery to have her butt implants removed, Renee was bedridden for 6 months, and could not work out or do any physical activity throughout that time. During this period her body lost all muscle definition and her legs were further manipulated by cellulite.
Despite all of this, Renee decided to post a picture of what her butt looks like today for everyone that has been wondering what happened to her, and if she ever had her butt fixed. At this point she is active and mobile, and feeling a lot more like her old self. So even though she has not had her butt fixed with more cosmetic alterations, Renee is feeling better about her body than ever before.
Renee has had her butt implants removed, but she has not undergone reconstructive surgery on her booty. The damage from the first round taught Renee that trying too hard to be perfect can often turn around and teach you a lesson in appreciating what you have, because it can always be worse.
Renee also learned there is no such thing as perfect; even the models in fashion magazines do not look so 5-star in real life. Photoshop can do wonders, as Renee proved by photoshopping her own image. Without a doubt, the results could be in a biker babe magazine. While this might not be what she looks like today, the image itself gave her the confidence she needed to love herself as is.
Just like any popular, good-looking model, Renee only needs one good Photoshop expert to look perfect! Renee’s message is a good one for women to see, helping us realize that the unrealistic images shown in the media do way more harm than good, simply because they are not real. In the real world, women come in all different shapes and sizes, each just as perfect as the next—so shake what your momma gave ya, no matter how big or small it may be.
Along with her before and after photoshop photos, Renee included this heartfelt Facebook message:
Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, Kim Zolciak loves to show off her body on Facebook and Instagram. But after having 4 kids in the last 3-years Kim found herself less in love with her figure. After going under the knife, the mom started to get a lot of feedback—about how she got plastic surgery instead of working out to improve her post ‘babies’ body.
Kim had a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, which she proudly shows off online as well as on her reality TV show. Self-obsessed Kim Zolciak doesn’t want people thinking she is lazy though. She is on a mission to prove she has worked for her body almost as much as she paid for it. In one of her attempts, she took to Facebook, posting the above before and after photos to show that she was in good shape before her tummy tuck. And, just so we know how much Kim loves herself, along with the photo, she commented, “Just so you guys are aware of how fabulous I was before my tummy tuck”. If you ask us, her tummy looks about the same in both photos, but it’s always hard to tell looking at grainy phone pictures.
In her defense, and to praise her plastic surgeon’s work, Kim also wrote on social media: “I had a hernia I needed repaired as well as my muscles so don’t get it twisted for you lazy asses that sit on the couch And think I look this good from surgery you are now set straight!! Enjoy!! Take a look at the placement of my belly button before and after! I gotta give it to @drhochstein he gave me a cute belly button.”

Pictures of Kim (below) show her post-baby figure off before she had a tummy-tuck and second breast augmentation.
Instead of raising her 4 little kids, the 36-year old appears to be busy getting ready
to work out to take pictures of herself in the gym, in hopes she can prove to her followers she worked out for her new body. She posts plenty of pictures hitting the gym, with not a drip of sweat in sight—hopefully these images are taken at the start of her workout, or else she isn’t working out too hard at all. Really want to prove something Kim? Take a sweaty pic next time!
I find it a little funny that even though she has admittedly had a lot of work done and works out, people still think photos (below) posted on September 17 were photo shopped by Kim before being shared.
Prior to her most recent surgeries, a consultation with plastic surgeon Lenny Hochstein was aired on the reality series. During the consultation Kim pointed out the areas that were bothering her most. Including the excess skin that she had around her breasts. Zolciak also said she wanted her double D tatas (fake of course), to be ‘perkier’ and have more of a ‘tear drop shape.’ During the same surgery, she had a hernia that occurred during her fourth pregnancy taken care of, as well as excess skin on her stomach removed. Dr. Hochestein guaranteed Kim could wear the smallest bikini after her surgery with no sign of a scar thanks to the super low placement of his scar. In one of her many social media posts, Kim praises Dr. Hochstein for her new belly button he crafted– but don’t get it “twisted” she earned this body. Really, Kim?Tags: mommy makeover, over 30, Real Housewives of Atlanta, reality stars
Top LA Surgeon Reveals Why Clooney Looks So Good and Renee Zellweger Looks So Bad After Cosmetic Surgery
There are certain celebs with obvious boob jobs, face-lifts, and brow lifts that the whole world talks about. Then, there are celebrities that look perfect but we are not really sure what they have had done to achieve that look, take George Clooney or Catherine Zeta-Jones for instance. Thanks to one top Los Angeles plastic surgeon, we now have some answers.
Dr. Michael Groth works out of Beverly Hills and specializes in eyelid and eyebrow surgery. The top surgeon knows a thing or two about identifying plastic surgery work, and he has a few secrets to share about the biggest names in Hollywood in regards to the work they have had done to maintain their youthful appearances.
The first celebrity he identifies as cosmetically altered is George Clooney.
Dr. Groth says about Clooney, “He looks great and it’s my understanding that he may have had his upper lids done in a conservative sense.” While Dr. Groth is a fan of the work Clooney has had done, he does not think that Bruce Jenner or Kenny Rogers had the same success with their eyelids. He says that both of them have what appears to be the “old-style surgery” where a lot of volume is lost from the upper lids. Today it is all about keeping a full upper lid, like Clooney’s.
Next on the radar is Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Dr. Groth believes Jones has gotten her upper lids done as well. Although he says that just like Clooney, Zeta-Jones has a wonderful job that helps maintain her youthful appearance without taking away too much fullness from up top.
Not all of big name celebrities have the best looking work done, according to Dr. Groth some are very overdone. The overdone names on his list include:
Dr. Groth says that Renee Zellweger has recently had too much surgery, which has taken away the, “charm of her full upper lid.” While a very plump upper lid is an attractive quality it doesn’t always age well and can start to appear squinty. When this happens patients often come in to have work done, but when surgeons take away too much tissue, the results are not as good as they could be.
While Dr. Groth works on a number of big name celebrities, he isn’t about to say which ones. Dr. Groth has no problem throwing celebs under the bus, but not if they are his actual client—well that’s one reason to visit Dr. Groth if you’re a celebrity.
Wondering how much eyelid surgery costs? Dr. Groth says it can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000, which is a pretty big spread. Celebrities depend on their faces to make money, and so according to Dr. Groth cosmetic surgery is a tax right off in some cases.
What do Scarlett Johansson, Megan Fox, Kate Middleton and Katy Perry all have in common? They all have scientifically perfect breasts according to one study conducted by a top plastic surgeon.
The most coveted breast shape shared by these celebrities is being called the “Beckoning Breast”. Considering all 4 of these popular ladies have very different sized breasts, perfection has more to do with shape than anything else.
The most perfect breast proportions can be calculated based on the location of the nipple, with 45% of breast tissue above the nipple meridian and 55% below. In other words, the ideal nipples point skywards at 20 degrees. When breasts meet these criteria they are being called “beckoning breasts.”
Dr. Patrick Malluci from the University College London Hospitals, is the researcher behind this study, as well the man behind the term, beckoning breasts.
To come up with his final results, Malluci asked over 1,300 people to rate their favorite breasts out of 4 different options. The results showed 87% of respondents preferred the 45:55 ratio. Regardless of gender, culture, race, or age people prefer this natural looking shape.
One of the main things women want when getting implants are fuller breasts, but while fullness is important it often leads to surgeons creating what looks like large, hard balls that are anything but natural. Dr. Mallucci says that because of this tendency, plastic surgery has gotten its bad rep for producing fake or unrealistic breasts. While incredibly full breasts look good in clothing, Dr. Malluci says they don’t necessarily look good, or natural, on a naked body.
That doesn’t mean breast implants HAVE to look unnatural, instead if surgeons focused on making the nipple only point up at a 20 degree angle, breast implants would appear more natural and aesthetically pleasing with or without clothes.
Kim Kardashian got women all over the world to imitate her big round booty, but according to Dr. Mallcucci’s study her “top heavy chest” is only the third most popular breast shape.
Britney Spears’ 50:50 breast ratios is ranked as number one by 9% of respondents
Lindsey Lohan’s 55:45 top-heavy breast ratio ranks favorite among 2% of respondents.
And even though Rihanna appears to have nice natural looking breasts, she gets a ratio of 35:65, which ranks favorite among only 2%.
Interestingly, women are more prone to liking unnatural looking breasts, while men prefer a more natural pair.
It’s becoming so common for women to have fake breasts that it’s easy to forget what real breasts even look like. In 2013, 2 million women had a breast augmentation. Yet, thanks to research like this, surgeons may be rethinking the bloated and unnaturally upturned implants that have prevailed for years.
Dr. Malluci is now using the 45:55 model template for his patients’ implants, and he hopes other surgeons do the same.Tags: perfect breasts, plastic surgeons
As fall approaches, the latest boot styles hit the stores, tempting all fashion lovers to come take a look. And who doesn’t love boots? For starters, they come in all different styles and heights, there are dressy boots with heels, casual flat boots, above the knee, calf height… and as an equestrian, I must say there are horseback riding boots too!
But have you ever tried on a pair of killer boots only to end up disappointed when they wouldn’t zip up over your calves? If so you are not alone, turns out many ladies find their favorite boot styles are made too small to fit over their calves. Instead of having boots stretched out, re-sized, or specially made, some women are combating the issue by tailoring their legs with plastic surgery.
High end fashion demands legs be so thin women are undergoing liposuction on their calves in order to wear the most coveted boots of the season.
Dr. Matthew Schulman is a board certified plastic surgeon practicing in the Upper East Side of New York. In an interview with ABC News, he detailed seeing many patients seeking liposuction on their calf to reduce “boot bulge.”
If you run, bike or regularly work your calf muscles, there’s a chance you won’t have enough fat to undergo the procedure, Dr. Shulman explains there must be enough fat in the calf to remove anything. The procedure itself is detailed and a bit tricky, because you only want to take out very small amounts of fat. Patients are put under anesthesia and the total procedure takes around an hour and a half.
Surgery might sound extreme, but what would you do if you couldn’t wear boots like those found in Kim Kardashian’s amazing collection of knee-highs!
Some people might be shouting at their screen, “WORK OUT!” But according to Sabrina, a New York resident that underwent the surgery last year, “I’m a fairly fit person, I always exercise. It wasn’t an area I could fix on my own. I assumed that if you could have liposuction on your stomach, why not on your calves?”
Dyan is a New Yorker still planning for her procedure. She is so excited about her future results she has already purchased several pairs of Stuart Weitzman stretch boots in anticipation.
Women have been running for calf-surgery in South Korea for several years, and today the procedure is gaining popularity in the US. The rise in calf-surgery can be linked to the fact more micro-surgeries are available due to advanced medical procedures and surgical tools. Back rolls, calves, ankles, and even kneecaps are other micro-areas experiecing a rise in liposuction requests.
If you decide to get calf surgery you won’t be squeezing into any tight boots soon. Recovery time can take up to 10 months! Most women are 85% healed within 4-5 months. Still, that’s a long recovery, and especially for a part of your body you count on to get you around everyday.
Would you consider having liposuction on your calves?
After stepping out of the limelight for a few years, 80’s sweetheart Valerie Bertenelli packed on a few pounds. Thanks to a stint as a Jenny Craig Ambassador in 2009, Valerie shed the extra weight and surprised everyone by happily slipping into a 2-piece bikini for the first time in 30 years. Thanks to her successful weight loss, you couldn’t turn on the TV without seeing one of her commercials for Jenny Craig, just a few years ago. But, as time went on, and the Jenny Craig checks stopped coming in, Valerie slowly went back to her old ways and she blew up again. It’s not exactly surprising since Valerie once said that breaking her addiction to food was even harder than breaking her addiction to cocaine!
Since her long-winded Jenny Craig campaign, Valerie has lost weight, gained weight, and lost weight again. Back in March she gained attention for an obvious increase in her weight, which the star blames on breaking her foot. When the pounds started to pack on, she admits she panicked and even felt ashamed. Finally, she felt empowered after realizing she had to stop beating herself up, after all her foot was broken!
At a recent women’s conference on September 16th, a slimmer Bertenelli gave a speech that touched upon women empowerment, drugs, weight loss, The Real Housewives, and plastic surgery too.
After slimming down from 172-pounds to 125-pounds, 5-foot-4 Bertenelli was on top of the world, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t challenging for her to lose the weight. As a recovered drug addict, she admits it was harder to quit her addiction to food than it was to stop doing cocaine years ago.
Along with drugs and dieting, the 54-year old bashed the Real Housewives during her speech, saying, “I think more women need to be nice to each other. We have bad examples on television of the ‘Real Housewives’ of whatever town they’re in.” Bertenelli went on to explain how she doesn’t want friends that are like those women, she wants friends that love and support her.
Apparently though, she doesn’t mind the fact the Housewives all have plastic surgery. In fact, while the star says she has not yet had plastic surgery, she doesn’t discount the fact she may need it someday. In her own words, “Needles in the face and cutting is scary. Never say never, but not yet.”
Meet Jasmine Tridevil, the worlds first woman with three boobs.
Jasmine is a 21-year old Florida native, who desperately wants to be famous. The massage therapist scrimped and saved in order to afford the $20,000 surgery to construct a third breast, which she feels is her ticket to fame and fortune.
Jasmine’s third breast is constructed of skin grafts taken from her hip area, and two silicon implants. One implant was used to simulate the breast tissue and a smaller implant on top simulates the areola and nipple. Jasmine also had a “nipple” tattooed on for a more realistic effect. Finding a plastic surgeon that was willing to perform such a bizarre, and what some say is unethical, procedure, was no easy task and Jasmine was turned down by dozens of plastic surgeons before she was able to find one that was willing to perform the surgery to give her a third breast. Not surprisingly, the surgeon does not want their identity revealed and made Jasmine sign a non-disclosure agreement.
So why does someone go through with a bizarre body modification like getting a third breast? To become famous of course! Jasmine has been filming herself in hopes that MTV will pick her up for a reality show. Although she also explains that she got a third breast in hopes of turning off guys, because she never wants to date again. (So says the girl that dresses provocatively, and happily poses with the guys from The Thunder Downunder for her 21st birthday…)
Do you think Jasmine will succeed in her quest to become a reality star? Judging by her pretty crappy Youtube videos, where she appears to be completely devoid of a personality, we are going to guess that no, we will not be seeing her on television anytime soon, and we can file her away with one-hit wonders like Octomom, Courtney Stodden and Sydney Leathers.
Oh, I remember it like yesterday: When Courtney Stodden said she was done with plastic surgery until “gravity begins to take place”, at least…But, wait, it was almost yesterday that she said that! Yet gravity has clearly already set in on the GIGANTIC breast implants that she got barely a year ago.
Yes, it’s true, Courtney Stodden traded in her perky 19-year old B-cups for these sloppy, pendulous E-cups that would look more at home on a 50-year old stripper, or retired pornstar, than a 20-year old “Christian”.
Courtney claims that not only is she thrilled with her E-cup breast implants, but her parents and her husband are also very happy with her plastic surgery transformation.
But, is she really happy with the results of her gigantic breast implants, which have already begun their downward plummet? I know that Courtney isn’t the sharpest crayon in the box, but I’m pretty sure that she has eyes, and I don’t know anyone (with eyes) that thinks those monstrosities implanted in her chest are attractive (except maybe Bill?). Perhaps Courtney’s recent reunion with her creeper husband has an ulterior motive…
We would love to see Courtney get her breasts fixed. We are all for it, if women want to look over-the-top sexy, but those E-cups are just too big for someone as tiny as Courtney Stodden. Trade those puppies in for a D-cup and a breast lift, Courtney!
