Even though this article is about Hollywood stars I thought it would be a good reference thread in the Beauty sub-forum. Can You Keep A Secret? Most celebrities will deny they've had work done, but their doctors know the truth--and have the secret back entrances in their offices to prove it. "They're very paranoid," says Dr. Renato Calabria, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. Calabria, who says his celebrity clients sometimes have a hard time saying hello to him in public, pioneered the new one-stitch face lift. For about $5,000, the procedure lifts loose facial skin and anchors it via one stitch under the hairline on each side of the face. The effect is more subtle than full face lifts and popular among clients in their late 30s, Calabria says. Recovery time is around four days, perfect for the kind of person who doesn't want to stay out of the limelight for too long. Botox Cost: $250 per area or $10 to $12 per syringe When to have it done: A few days in advance Botox is a non-surgical injection used to temporarily paralyze muscles that cause wrinkles, primarily around the eyes and forehead. It also can be used to prevent stains on a designer gown by stopping glands from producing sweat. Each injection lasts three to four months. Fillers Cost: Ranges from $300 to $800 per syringe When to have it done: A few days in advance Soft-tissue fillers such as Restalyne, Juvederm and collagen are injected into the face to fill out a depressed area, such as the folds between the nose and lips. Many, including a patient's own fat, can be injected into the lips, plumping them Angelina Jolie-style for up to a year. Volumetric Face Lift Cost: Starting at $15,000 When to have it done: Four to six weeks in advance Instead of tethering loose skin, in this procedure, fat is taken from the abdomen and injected into the face, creating high cheekbones, for instance, where there were none. For some, it is permanent, but others need to repeat it in five years. Skin may also be tightened via small incisions around the ears. One-Stitch Face Lift Cost: $5,000 to $7,000 When to have it done: At least four days in advance A lunchtime procedure, the one-stitch lift is done under local anesthesia and doesn't use external threads to hold tissue in place. Instead, loose skin is tightened and stitched once on each side of the face under the hairline. There is no bruising, and the effect can make patients look five years younger. Power Bleaching Cost: $500 to $1,000 When to have it done: Two and a half weeks in advance Dentists practiced in power bleaching apply whitening gel to a patients teeth then places them for an hour in front of a light that promotes absorption. Sensitivity may be a problem for a day afterward. Teeth-whitening trays and solution for at-home use is also available.
