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!

Why a cheek lift is the new full facelift

It’s the surgical treatment responsible for reversing hundreds of long, tired faces. Replumping cheeks, reducing jowls and redefining cheekbones; here’s the lowdown on why patients are loving the cheek lift and how to know if it’s the right ‘fake facelift’ for you.

Why have a cheek lift?

You are a great candidate for a cheek lift if as well as being in good health you have one or more of the following concerns:

-Sagging of the cheeks and the surrounding area – one of the earliest signs of aging

-Nasolabial folds and loss of volume or definition in the cheeks

-Sagging eyebrows and eyelids and a hollowing underneath the eyes, giving you a weary appearance

-Loose skin and displacement of fat and tissues around the neck and jawline, resulting in jowls

-Drooping corners of the mouth or “marionette” lines on the chin

-Desire to appear more youthful and increase self-confidence

What are the benefits of a cheek lift?

​1. Quick & easy – you can be in and out during your lunch break as the treatment takes less than one hour. The typical full recovery time after a cheek lift is two to three weeks post-surgery.
2. Minimal swelling – you experience minimal swelling because percutaneous suspension means there is much less tissue trauma than regular surgery.
3. Comfort – Local anesthetic is used at specific points to reduce any discomfort.

How does the cheek lift work?

The cheek lift, or mid-facelift, by percutaneous suspension, is a minimally invasive procedure which can dramatically improve the appearance of the cheek and midface regions.

Dr Bhar’s procedure reverses the telltale signs of aging, restoring fullness to the cheekbones and refreshing the area under the eyes for a rejuvenated appearance.
