Kylie Jenner Made Lip Injections Hot, But What Do You Do When Your Injections Are Botched?


The Kardashian crew became the patron saints of plastic surgery. Thanks to their open patronage of top plastic surgeons, people from all walks of life gained a newfound interest in cosmetic surgery. The most popular procedure associated with the Kardashians is lip enhancement, and its demand has skyrocketed in recent years. 

Lip injections have given thousands of people the look they’ve always wanted. Having a fuller set of lips can balance out facial features, add a little flirtatiousness to your look, and generally makes someone more attractive. For the most part, people who get lip injections are thrilled with the results. 

“For the most part” is the key term to look for here. Once in a while, there will be cases where plastic surgery goes wrong. Lip injections can get botched. Sometimes, injections take hold on one side other than the other. Other times, a single lip injection can become overkill or may end up with excess swelling. A botched lip enhancement is one that can easily be traumatic to the person who has it happen to them. 

Because the rate of lip injections increased, the number of botched surgeries in this category increased too. So, what happens when you end up with botched lip injections? Clearly, living with a botched procedure isn’t ideal, right?

Finding A Solution To The Lip Injection Problem

Rhinoplasty expert Dr. Philip J. Miller has seen this issue happen at his own office, and regularly works with clients who want to know their options. Thankfully, there are ways to correct botched surgeries, and those include lip injections. 

“When it comes to lip injections, you really have just two options. Lip injections that are semi-permanent can allow patients to wait for years until the ingredients in the injections are absorbed into the skin, but most people don’t find this to be ideal,” notes Dr. Philip J. Miller. “That’s why the best option is to go to a plastic surgeon to have the injections corrected.” 

The Lip Injection Fix

Considering how pricey some plastic surgery corrections can be, it’s not surprising that many botched enhancement victims tend to feel like a better pair of lips will be unaffordable. Even when it’s not a matter of affordability, the potential of having complex procedures performed on them can be intimidating. 

Believe it or not, people who receive corrections don’t really have to worry about these concerns. The procedure is both affordable and doesn’t require any intense surgery. In fact, there isn’t even much downtime associated with it. 

As it turns out, correcting lip injections is actually fairly easy to do, as long as the injections you have included Hyaluronic Acid. A plastic surgeon can inject a specialty serum that will dissolve the injections and give you a clean slate to work with. Then, the surgeon can perform injections once more, giving you the results you initially wanted. 

Does It Really Work?

The fix seems to simple, doesn’t it? With shows like Botched describing advanced surgeries in detail, it’s easy to be skeptical about a procedure’s potential. Believe it or not, the procedure really does work and is capable of giving patients the lips they’ve always wanted.

“If you got regular filler injections with HLA, there’s absolutely no reason to feel resigned to having botched lips,” says Dr. Miller. “Tech makes it possible to improve your look and reverse problems that come with a poorly performed surgery.”

You Can Now Use Emsculpt For Arms


When it comes to a person’s physique, the way one’s arms look speaks volumes about your fitness. Arms are where people flaunt their muscle tone during the summer. Having flabby arms can make an otherwise flattering outfit turn embarrassing. It can make you look heavier than you really are, and if you’re male, can also lead women to lose interest in you.

Diet and exercise are the most common methods to use when you are trying to attain muscle mass in your arms. Unfortunately, they don’t always work well. At New Jersey Plastic Surgery, we now offer a new treatment that allows you to build muscle using technology. It’s called Emsculpt, and it will make your arms look amazing.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is the world’s first non-invasive body sculpting procedure to actually build real muscle in patients. This uses HIFEM™ (High-Intensity Focused Electromagetic) pulses to force your body’s muscles to contract rapidly. The rapid contractions are not the same as the ones you get during exercise.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt is able to deliver results by making your muscles contract quickly over the course of a small period of time. When your arm is exposed to the targeted HIFEM pulses, it will react through small contractions that ripple throughout your arm.

Contracting your muscles takes effort and acts like exercise. Because it’s a different type of muscle contraction pattern than what exercise offers, the pulses encourage your body to build muscle in areas that typically won’t respond to regular exercise.

Why Should I Choose Emsculpt For My Arms?

Most body sculpting procedures either add implants to look like muscle, or remove fat in order to make you appear more toned. Emsculpt does neither; it actually lets you grow your own muscle and gives you real, natural muscle tone!

Because it’s non-invasive, Emsculpt offers a level of safety most other procedures don’t offer. Since the muscle is your own, it also offers up extremely natural results compared to other similar procedures.

What Does An Emsculpt Procedure Behave Like?

Prior to getting Emsculpt, you will need to sit down with a staff member at New Jersey Plastic Surgery for a consultation. They will examine you to ensure that the results you want will be attainable, will explain to you how many sessions you will need, and then schedule each session with you.

When you go in for your Emsculpt procedure, a staff member will place the Emsculpt machine on your arms. No sedation or anesthesia is required, and it can be administered while you sit or lay down in the doctor’s office.

Your doctor will arrive and turn on the Emsculpt machine. The machine will then let out pulses that will make your muscles contract for the next 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes is up, you are able to go back to your daily business.

What Does Emsculpt Feel Like?

Emsculpt is not a painful procedure. Most patients describe the Emsculpt experience to be like a very intense workout. There may be a little soreness, sure, but it’s absolutely bearable. That’s why there’s no need for anesthesia or downtime with Emsculpt.

How Many Sessions Will I Need For My Arms?

Most patients will need a minimum of four Emsculpt sessions in order to see very visible results. Typically, each session will take anywhere from half an hour to an hour. They are spaced out on a weekly to biweekly basis, depending on how much toning up is needed.

When Do I Start To See Results?

Unlike other procedures, the results you get from Emsculpt are going to take time to show up. After your first Emsculpt session, you may start to feel the muscle growing. This is totally normal. Patients get to see the full results about four to six weeks after their first Emsculpt session.

How Much Does Emsculpt Cost?

The cost of Emsculpt varies greatly depending on a variety of factors. Emsculpt typically costs between $750 to $1,000 per session. Since most people require a minimum of four sessions to see results, you can expect your process to cost about $4,000.

Am I A Good Candidate For Emsculpt?

Everyone wants to have beautiful, toned arms, but to get Emsculpt, you need to fit a certain profile. The ideal candidate is a person who:

  • Is in relatively good health
  • Is close to their ideal body weight
  • Has tried to tone up their arms without much luck
  • Is able to book several sessions in a series of weeks
  • Has reasonable expectations of results

The Jersey Shore Plastic Surgery Before and After


As a denizen of the Jersey Shore, I have to make a confession. Sacrilegious as it may be to admit, I am a huge fan of Jersey Shore. I feel bad saying that, since I grew up close to where they shot the first season and it really did create a world of chaos for all the locals involved. (By the way, we’re not all spray tanned. I, for one, am ghostly white year-round.)

Fairly recently, I watched the reunion of the classic fist-pumping crew. It was a huge deal for a lot of us folks who low-key enjoyed the show. It was everything that we expected it be, and more!

I got to admit, they still looked good after all these years. The Situation looked like himself. Pauly D still kept his same hairstyle, and of course, Jwoww brought her killer sense of style to the shore. Vinny, once typically considered to be the slender one, now looked smoking hot and beefy. (GTL, much?!)

My favorite star, Snooki, looked better than before. That being said, I noticed something a bit different about her. Was it her boobs? Nope. I’m pretty sure they always looked that way since the show. Her skin tone remained just as heavily tanned as ever. Her hair remained a pouf…

Her lips. It was her lips.

When she was recently filmed during the reunion, it became clear that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi had fuller lips—and honestly, she looked glamorous. It suited her very well. Her figure was also a bit different, and she later admitted that she had a “mommy makeover” after having her two kids.

The work that she had done was subtle, and honestly, I wouldn’t have been able to figure it out if I wasn’t an avid fan of the Living Sage Plastic Surgery App. They have videos and posts that allow you to see before and after photos of people who have undergone cosmetic procedure. Watching enough of that stuff will allow you to tell the difference—and also figure out whether or not you’d want to do the same.

I don’t know who was Snooki’s plastic surgeon. Maybe it was a celebrity plastic surgeon.  Maybe she had it done while she was in Florida. Wherever she had it done, she had it done well. Kudos, Snooki. You done good!

Kim Kardashian’s Hairline: Before & After

feature kim

A beautiful body can be enough to launch a career beyond your wildest dreams. Don’t believe me? Look at Kim Kardashian-West. Regardless of what your personal opinion may be of her, there is no denying she is a beautiful woman. From her curves to her luminous smooth skin, she makes being gorgeous look totally effortless, and that’s something everyone is looking to achieve.

Whether you’re gracing the cover of Vogue or just trying to kill it on the streets, looking good is on the top of everyone’s list, including Kim K.’s. Her knock out transformation had a lot to do with her hair removal, and she has not kept quiet about it.

One of her major concerns was her hairline. Although it my appear to be flawless now, her Armenian roots made it difficult to have that chic and polished look she was going for. Baby hairs were no small problem for Kardashian-West and that’s evident in her before and after photos.

She even posted on her own website about the procedure; “I lasered my baby hairs off years ago, because my forehead had all these little baby hairs, and I would always break out because of them,” –

She didn’t just stop at her hairline. It’s hard not to noticed that her eyebrows are always on fleek. Waxing is painful, threading is even worse, and tweezing? Don’t even go there. If you’re one of the, “hairy ethnicities”, you also know that those options don’t work for more than a day before your hairy scary madness starts creeping back.

Let’s move a little lower. Although some of us may be wary about sharing our goods with the world, Kardashian-West has no reservations with it at all. Her body is her income. It’s how she started her career and it’s a big part of how she’s maintained her success for this long. After all, not just anyone can break the internet on multiple occasions.

Kim K. has gotten rid of any trace of hair you could possibly find on her body- which it not only amazing for her, but it’s pretty damn convenient for the world.

Real talk; no one wants to look at a woman’s body covered in hair- especially the women themselves. In addition to her brows, hairline and Va- Va- Voom body,  Kim has had her neck, face and even parts of her body lasered. Clearly, all of these procedures are doing wonders for the pop culture queen.

A woman’s life is busy enough today between her career, relationships and family. It’s been said time and time again that most women who are mother’s barely even have time to shower more than twice a week, let alone groom themselves correctly. We as women have a lot to maintain and not a lot of time to do it.

The Smooth System to the rescue! The Smooth System is effective from the neck up, which is more than we can say about laser hair removal of the past. Kim understood the importance of a clean hairline and how it could work wonders for her aesthetic appearance. Although we have no confirmation Kim underwent a procedure, the proof is in the photos that some type of expert and advanced technique was performed. With treatments like this all women no longer need to worry about brow maintaining. They will forever be beautiful thanks to a little zapping.

Think about never having to worry again if you forgot to shave; or having to change your outfit because when it comes to shaving and waxing, the struggle is so real and we just rather wear pants. It may to time to actually take a cue from Kimmy and take to the laser ourselves.

If your find yourself hanging in the Big Apple and decide to shed that winter coat permanently, drop in to Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center. No one does hairless, better than Lucy.

Most of us will never see the money or fame that the Kardashian’s have, but does not mean we can’t be as flawless. Go hairless, Go flawless. Treat Yo’ Self.
