A Natural Beauty!

Since Vanessa Williams won her Miss America crown to her latest nomination of an Emmy Award for her work on the ABC hit series 'Ugly Betty’, we have been huge fans of her work but never more so than when she spoke to Jawn Murray of She let the world into her beauty secrets such as a healthy diet, yoga and, of course, Botox!

"I certainly do Botox, which I definitely think that almost every woman that I know has [done]," she said. "And it's a miracle drug, no cutting, nothing –– and I love it. But I also want to act too ... so I don't do it to freeze my face," she told Barbara Walters.

We are glad that she was clear that Botox doesn’t have to remove natural expressions. Unfortunately, bad examples of Botox treatments mislead people into thinking that Botox leaves you looking unnatural but that is not how we do it at BHI! We make sure that the women and men who come in for Botox leave looking like themselves, just refreshed. Thanks Vanessa!

Take It Easy On Demi!

Wow, we thought the tabloids were tough here in LA but poor Demi got burned by the Daily Mail in the UK.

“Without the cover of make-up, Demi's skin looked dull and tired, with her drooping jowls only adding to her haggard look.

Careful styling can hide a multitude of sins and she made a dramatic turnaround just days later, stepping out at a pre-Oscar party in Los Angeles looking glamorous and polished.”

We don’t think that she looks haggard and at BHI we say it never hurts to have some refresher treatments! We know people think facelifts sound pretty dramatic but “Facelift” is actually a very broad term that can offer a wide range of different procedures that are performed to rejuvenate the face and the neck. It all depends on the individual patient. And if, for example, you have “dull and tired” skin, BHI’s skin treatments are known to restore vitality! Our most popular treatments for skin “freshening” or resurfacing are “Macro”dermabrasion (not Microdermabrasion) and the Herbal Geen Peel. Marcrodermabrasion is very popular with our clientele, as there is no down time involved. Let us know if you need anything Demi, we are here for you!


Golden Rule

We were on one of our favorite sites and saw this picture of Nicole Kidman at the Tokyo premiere of “The Golden Compass”. We don’t know what she has done to her lips, or is it possibly an allergic reaction? We don’t know that she had any fillers done but one of our GOLDEN RULES is not to do any cosmetic work on a pregnant patient.

Never a Quitter

Joan Rivers was recently interviewed by Variety about her new show at the Geffen Playhouse called “Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress.” As usual, Joan is hilarious and we couldn’t help but laugh out loud when we read the three books that meant a lot to her.

Three books that mean a lot to me:

“Elephant Man”

“Cosmetic Surgery for Dummies”

“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Cosmetic Surgery”

Joan is completely unapologetic about her use of plastic surgery to enhance her looks but we can’t help but think of her as an example of what not to do. At BHI, we believe in the natural and subtle improvements. People shouldn’t be able to tell that you had plastic surgery, just that you look amazing! Good luck with the show, Joan and if you want the natural look, come see us!

Star and BHI

Another picture of Madonna looking so refreshed has surfaced and we have to say she looks amazing. We were recently interviewed by STAR Magazine on what possible procedures Madonna has had. We think that it could be some fillers such as Juvederm around the eyes, Botox on the crows feet and forehead and maybe a light chemical peel to freshen up.

43 And Counting!

Now that Carnival is over Angela is planning her 43rd trip to the surgeons table. She is looking to top Cindy Jackson’s 47 plastic surgeries in the Guinness Book of World Records. If you recall she had temporary threads to give her an Asiatic look for the centennial commemorating the Japanese immigration to Brazil. Well, she liked it so much that she had it done permanently! We guess she did like the Catwoman look. Now she is going to have hymenoplasty, so her new plastic surgeon husband will know what it feels like to be with a virgin. This is one time we won’t be making any comment except good luck!

Oh Dolly!

Back in November we talked about how Dolly Parton was working on a new album and how we loved her new song and her zest for life. Well, Dolly was due to go on tour to coincide with the release of her new album "Backwoods Barbie" later this month. Unfortunately, she has postponed her upcoming US tour due to a back injury -- and she guesses that her legendary bust size might have something to do with it.

"I know I have been breaking my neck and bending over backwards trying to get my new 'Backwoods Barbie' CD and world tour together, but I didn't mean to hurt myself doing it! But hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have back problems. Seriously though, the doctors said I will be good as new in a few weeks, and I can't wait to get back out there."

Oh Dolly, we love your sense of humor and we can’t wait to see you on tour!

Not Unusual , Not At All

Sir Tom Jones has reportedly insured his chest hair for around $7 million with Lloyd's of London! Tom's spokesperson would not confirm. A source said, “Even at the grand old age of 67, the ladies love his hip-thrusting moves and catching a sneaky peak of his famously rugged chest hair."

At BHI, the ladies love Tom Jones and what we love is that he isn’t afraid to talk about his plastic surgery!

"I've had some nips and tucks," he admits, with a laugh and is not sure that he can resist another operation or treatment of Botox. "I don't know," he muses. "It depends on what I think needs doing."
