breast implants turn 50

Breast implants have been around for 50 years. While originally made popular by Las Vegas dancers, now the typical patient is a mother whose breasts have changed after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The most popular implant currently is gel implants (which look and feel more natural than the saline version).

Small-breasted personalities like Kate Hudson and Nichole Richie have opted for an implant that reflects a more natural look. However, the important part of the equation in breast augmentation is to see a plastic surgeon like Dr. Jack Peterson in Topeka, that listens to what the patient is looking for and custom fits the implant to their body size and desired size results.

is botox the one for my 1's?

Botox can give you noticeable improvement whether you have one frown line between the brows (1's) or two (11's) or even three (111's).

Years of squinting, concentrating, frowning (or scowling at your children!) cause your skin to crease.  As time passes, the skin becomes less elastic and those frown lines remain, even when your muscles are not contracting.

Botox relaxes muscle activity that causes those lines to form.  Click here to read more about Botox with Dr. Jack Peterson.
