A Plastic Surgeon's Perspective:
New York's 'Statute of Libeauty'
DR. MICHELLE YAGODA, NYC FACIAL PLASTIC SURGEON, AND CO-FOUNDER OF BEAUTYSCOOP
Big hair may define the primping princesses of Plano in the same way that big breasts define the ladies from LA....but what defines a New York beauty? Though it may come as a surprise to some, New York beauties are no more the voluptuous vixens in Vogue than the glamorous goddesses of Glamour. Big apple beauties have adopted their own 'statute of libeauty' and look refreshingly natural!
Make no mistake, there's been much work done! There is the keratin hair straightening treatment to add shine and defrizz unruly tresses. Highlights and hair color is meticulously maintained. Body hair is lasered. Eyelashes are enhanced by lash lengthening formulas or expertly placed lash extensions. Lips are subtlely plumped and faintly glossed. A hint of blush is judiciously applied. Nails are manicured weekly and buffed. Botox brilliantly allows movement while fillers are expertly placed. Everything is perfect, yet nothing is visible.
Sure magazines show masterful makeup artistry, but you won't find that art on a true New Yorker! New York women proudly take good care of themselves. They exercise regularly and groom endlessly. But, leave the fanciful faux to the French...New York women look effortlessly natural although every New Yorker knows that it takes a lot of effort to get from au naturel to looking like a natural beauty!
|Special Interview: Giulio Gherardini, M.D., Ph.D., Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon, Rome, Italy |
1. As a
plastic surgeon you trained in Italy, the USA and Sweden. Then you worked in the UK, the UAE and Kuwait. As an international plastic surgeon who has since returned to your native country of Italy,
have you noticed any geographical differences in women's ideas of
beauty around the world?
In general, beauty is largely
influenced by western standards and delivered through the media. This
makes the standards very similar. There are some differences, however. In the UK, there is a
tendency to embrace a more "operated" or "done" look with large breast implants and a very small waist. In Italy, there is more of an emphasis on subtlety...patients want to look very natural and want to keep the surgery a secret. In fact, Italian women demand small and progressive changes rather than
drastic improvements. All Italian procedures are described as "mini" such as mini"lifts, "mini"liposuction, etc.
are the three most important topical anti-aging ingredients favored in Rome?
They are the same as in the USA - glycolic acids, retinoic acids and hyaluronic acids. The only difference is that in Italy (and in the Middle East), there is a tendency is to use
very weak, topical treatments, due to the presence of sun worshiping and the photosensitizing effects of glycolic and retinoic acids.
3. Are there any anti-aging ingredients unique to the European Union and the United Kingdom that are not available in the USA?
There are none that I know of currently, but I do know that hydroquinone for hyperpigmentation is not marketed in Europe.
role, if any, do you believe supplements like BeautyScoop play in
Supplements have been an important part of
beauty in the UK for some time, but today, there is growing interest in
supplements in Italy. Ingestible
"cosmetic" supplements are playing a growing role in today's beauty
considerations around the world.
