This month featured our very first Reader's Choice Awards. After reviewing all of our procedures and the number of times they were researched, our Top 5 Overall are:
Thermage was the number one procedure for this month as people geared up for the holidays. Our readers were also interested in SmartLipo for spot fat reduction, permanent makeup to shave time off their busy mornings, and Botox to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Danny Cahill, the winner of The Biggest Loser, was also the winner on AHB this month. The information posted about his win was the most read article by far, beating out second place by more than twice the numbers. He made history when it was revealed that he'd lost 239 pounds, a full 55.58% from his original weight, the most lost in Biggest Loser history.
The season of eating is upon us and many are looking for ways to trim down in the new year. Medical weight loss is an option for those who have tried and perhaps failed at previous weight loss attempts. Your physician can tailor a diet just for you that will help you shed those extra pounds in the new year.
Former Miss Argentina Solange Magnano died earlier this month following a buttock augmentation using injections of a substance known as PMMA. Her tragic loss highlights the need to research any aesthetic procedure thoroughly before going through with it. While all cosmetic surgery carries risks, it is important to know your physician and the methods used and ensure they are safe.
This month saw the "Botax" removed from the proposed health care bill and the "Tantax" added in its place. There was to be a 5% tax placed on all elective cosmetic procedures to help fund the hefty price tag of the bill but there was an uprising of support to stop the Botax. It was called discriminatory and invasive and was replaced by a 10% tax on indoor tanning.
"Real Housewife of Orange County" cast member Lynne Curtin was hot again this month as everyone is interested in the results of her facelift procedure. Lynne and daughter Raquel both visited cosmetic surgeon Dr. Milind Ambe for a consultation. Raquel had a rhinoplasty performed while Lynne wanted to be rid of a few wrinkles and some droopiness.
The Tria Personal Laser system was huge this month as people researched holiday gifts. Tria is a personal laser hair removal system you can use in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It helps save both time and money on shaving and waxing and makes a great gift. Tria was named one of America's Hottest Brands in a report put forth by Advertising Age.
Lip augmentation is a great way to plump up those lips, and now there's a permanent option. Cupid's Bow Surgery is a simple, permanent procedure to improve your lips without fillers or implants.
Another "Real Housewife" cast member, Gretchen Rossi, discussed her VelaShape treatment for cellulite with Access Hollywood. She talked about how cellulite affects a large number of women, even her, and that VelaShape is a great way to even out the skin.
