Anti-Age Surgery Can You Really Turn Back The Clock

And if you could, would you really want to? Cindy Jackson certainly seems to think that it's possible to turn back time with cosmetic surgery. And in fact this 55 year woman who holds the worlds record (52) for having the most plastic surgeries does seem decades younger than her actual age.

Cindy who now works as a plastic surgery consultant stresses that she never set out to break a world record, instead she explains that she did it all to look better. I'll admit that when I first heard about Cindy I was expecting something along the lines of that socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein from Manhattan who has been turning herself into a double for a cat. But if you passed Cindy on the street you would probably take her for a woman in her mid-20's and never even notice that she's had work done. Just take a look at the video below and decide if you can tell that Cindy Jackson has had any work done on her face. For Cindy everything worked out well and she got exactly what she wanted, unfortunately the same can't be said for every patient who decides for whatever reason to improve on or change their looks.

Is it noticeable that Cindy Jackosn has had cosmetic surgery?

Plastic Surgery Mistakes

When you hear about someone having cosmetic work done to their face there are always a few people like Jocelyn Wildenstein who immediately come to mind.

Jocelyn Wildenstein

She apparently had all of this horrific surgery in an attempt to keep a straying husband. Unfortunately the husband left anyway leaving her looking like this for the rest of her life. Doesn't this make you wonder about the ethics of the surgeon who did the work on her in the first place?

Michael Jackson

Next on the list is of course Michael Jackson who it has been speculated may have had as many as 20-30 operations on his nose alone. And that's not even mentioning the bleached skin,cleft in his chin, his cheek implants and his thinner lips.

If you look at the photo's of Michael Jackson throughout the years it's pretty obvious that the plastic surgery became an obsession for him and if he'd just stopped after the first nose job he would have been so much better off.

Priscilla Presley

Next is Priscilla Presley who was a very beautiful woman before she became the victim of a fake surgeon who injected her face with industrial low-grade silicone instead of the commonly used fillers like Juvederm and Restylane.

It's unfortunate, but I'm told that something like what happened to Priscilla Presley may be impossible to fix. It's been said that the side effects from silicone injections can occur from 1-25 years after the injection.

Some of the side effects that can occur are cysts, sores and painful inflammation and swelling. As well as odd looking lumps and bumps, long term effects are unknown but you can imagine that it can't be good. The promise of eternal youth and beauty can be very alluring, unfortunately if something goes wrong the bad effects can last a lifetime, as many a starlet can tell you. And for every famous plastic surgery gone badly you can imagine there are thousands of others that you've never heard of.

Would you have plastic surgery?

This is such a de-motivator for plastic surgery (as a good thing). I'm never getting it unless I get in an accident or something like that! Great Hub!! Voted Up!!

When it comes to plastic surgery, less is more! There was a point where if Michael Jackson had stopped, he would have looked great. Poor Jocelyn Wildenstein...the doctors who did this to her should lose their license to practice. There comes a time when you have to tell a patient, no!

I agree, plastic surgery can be a good thing. Unfortunately it can also be taken too far.

I agree with Chasemillis that plastic surgery should be reserved for reconstruction for disfigurations due to accidents or complications of a disease or medication, and that if is necessary, the safest and least invasive procedure should be used. If I were to be scarred, I would choose microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing because it seems to be safer and less invasive than a chemical peel or dermabrasion. If I had HIV and got facial wasting from meds, I would use a temporary filler like Sculptra or Radiesse and repeat them when they wear off instead of risking longterm infection or disfiguration from a nonreversible permanent filler. If I lost a breast to cancer I would have it reconstructed with my own fat instead of getting silicone implants.
