Jennifer Lopez’s beauty secrets revealed!

J-Lo recently celebrated her 50th birthday, but the pop icon looks barely a day over 30. Here we take a guess at the secrets behind what’s keeping this diva looking so divine. To help you understand the behind-the-scenes beauty of achieving such a miraculously youth look, we’ve done some expert analysis for you and produced a cheat sheet for everyone looking to age so gracefully.

What’s down to simply good genes? And what can only be achieved with a nip, tuck and a tweak? Here’s our opinion, from brow to toe.  

Looking at before and after images of Jennifer Lopez, it is obvious she has certainly had a number of cosmetic treatments done. And by cosmetic treatments, we don’t necessarily mean cosmetic surgery, per se. 

Forehead – She is certainly using muscle relaxing treatments to the forehead to relax her forehead lines with botulinum toxin, and around the eyes, too, to prevent any crow feet wrinkles forming around this delicate region. 

Brows – Her eyebrows have maintained their position likely due to an eyebrow lift, which has the added effect of keeping her eyes looking more open, creating a youthful appearance. She doesn’t have the tired appearance look that one gets with the aging process. 

Eyes – Her under eyes look like they have filler in the tear trough region or usage of PDO thread. This has the added benefit of not just lifting the skin, stimulating collagen production, tightening the pores, promoting new blood vessel formation and orbital rejuvenation.

Nose  – She has almost certainly had a rhinoplasty, alarplasty and tip refinement to her nose. The nasal bridge appears narrower and straighter and her alas, (the nostril area of the nose) have been reduced in size because they are in line with her inter-canthal distance (the distance between her medial part of the eyes). Mind you, most of these outcomes can also be achieved with PDO threads in specific regions of the nose, so this also may have been used.

Cheeks – Her cheeks look filled with cheek filler. They appear well defined and contoured, enabling her to use less makeup to achieve the effect of high cheekbones.

Naso-labial area – She doesn’t appear to have deep smile lines or nasolabial folds, which might be attributed to the usage of dermal fillers or a thread lift in that area.

Lips- Her lips look augmented both in definition (around the lips) and volume (within the lips) with the help of fillers.

Jaw – Her jaw angle and jawline looks cosmetically tweaked, which may be due to using fillers to contour the jaw. The margins of the jaw are more protruded, broader, and more angular, which is the case when jawline augmentation and refinement is done. It could also be the case that she has had toxin injected into the masseters to give her a more v-shaped jawline. 

Chin – Her chin looks augmented to put it in proportion to her facial dimensions. This aides the perception of a refined jawline, as the skin is tight around that region. She also doesn’t have visible marionette lines (the lines from the angle of the mouth to the chin), which implies that they have been filled with filler or PDO threaded.

Skin – Her skin looks radiant and could be due to laser therapy to the skin. Laser therapy revitalises the skin whilst reducing discolouration of the skin and evening out of her skin tone. No doubt she has a team of Hollywood facialists and make-up artists taking great care of her skin.

Good genes – Of course, everyone’s looks are dictated by their genes; and it would seem she has a very good set of genes that make her more predisposed towards aging gracefully. It has also helped that she has physically maintained herself and kept herself healthy. However, it would be hard to fathom a 50 year old woman looking this youthful without the help of cosmetic interventions and tweakments!

5 reasons why tweakments are the biggest beauty trend of 2019 

At Harley Street Surgery, we’ve noticed the trend for tweakments; non-surgical lifts, tweaks, freezes, fluffs, fills, peels and puffs – and they are soaring in popularity with our patients. Women and men are turning to tweakments as opposed to full-blown surgical interventions in the bid to age naturally and gradually. We’re digging into the trend here with five reasons why it’s happening, and why we’ll see it continuing into 2020.

It’s the new aesthetic trend

Consumers are shifting towards the natural, individualistic beauty look over a fake, homogenised, one-size-fits-all look. Liquid facelifts, PRP & PRF, non-surgical nose jobs and PDO contouring tap into this new mindset of people wanting to look like themselves, but a little more refined. Tweakments offer a boost to our confidence, ease the effects of aging, and aren’t obvious to our friends and family. 

You don’t look like you’ve had anything ‘done’ 

Severe facelifts or noses that look like they’ve been ‘done’ a few too many times have put people off traditional plastic surgery methods. Consumers are moving  ‘beyond botox’ and ‘Extreme Makeover’ style transformations to prefer more subtle, incremental courses of high-technology treatments that offer fluffs and puffs every other month to maintain their natural beauty. Staples and bandages are out, “I woke up like this” beauty is in.  

You can be in’n’out   

Tweakments can be done on a lunchtime break. Clients love the ease of being in’n’out on a break from work and it’s a more attractive choice than lengthy, time-consuming operations.

1 – Results are highly personalisable

If done with a qualified cosmetic doctor, the incredible results achieved with tweakments can sometimes far surpass those achieved with surgical interventions. Tweakments are super effective with clients suffering from early signs of aging – outcomes can be fine-tuned to achieve individualised goals.

2 – It’s quick and easy and you’ll look amazing 

Instead of the pain and lengthy recovery time needed when going under the knife, with tweakments, you can book, attend and recover on the same day. Minimal downtime or recovery is needed and treatments can be slotted easily into your daily routine. 

3 – Which tweakments are available at Harley Street Surgery? 

Dr. Bhar’s tweakments are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic taste of every patient, producing natural, youthful and beautiful looking results.

The secret to luscious lips

Who doesn’t love a beautiful, plump pout? Whilst lip fillers are widely and readily available at many different salons and medical spas, you must be sure to see a registered aesthetic surgeon such as Dr. Bhar, with the skill and experience to administer the filler in a safe and professional way; achieving the results you desire.

Here’s the secret to luscious lips…

Why have a lip augmentation? 

Lip fillers give a natural lift and fullness to the area, restoring youth, plumpness, and collagen that may have been lost over time.

 

What are the benefits?

Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate for lip fillers if, as well as being in good health, you have any of the following requirements:

-Increased lip definition

-Increased lip volume

-Smoother lip and mouth contour

-Support the structure of your lips

-Wrinkle smoothing

-Restoration of youthful volume to the lips

-Redefine symmetry of lips

What can you expect to happen during the procedure? 

Initially, your lips will be numbed via topical anaesthetic or via a dental block. Dr. Bhar will then inject your lips with dermal filler, using a special technique to shape the cupids bow and add uniform fullness and definition to your lips.  The procedure is non-invasive and takes 45-60 minutes.

What happens in the 24 hours after the lip augmentation? 

Immediately after the procedure, you may experience redness or bruising where the injections have entered the skin. You may also experience some swelling and tenderness, so make sure you have a stress-free 24 hours planned after your treatment to relax and recover. The swelling can last up to 72 hours and then gradually decreases. Bruising can take up to 7 days to settle, or in some cases, longer.

 

How long do the effects last? 

The longevity of your lip filler is dependent on various factors, such as the brand of filler used, the amount of filler used in the initial procedure, and the quality of your skin – but can last up to 12 months, depending on how your body metabolises the filler.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?

Dr. Bhar is a highly qualified cosmetic surgeon and is an expert in lip filler, augmentations (and reductions). His procedures are always sympathetically tailored to your individual needs and aesthetic taste.
