Kate Gosselin...the dancing queen?


Can you believe this picture is the same person?  Kate Gosselin is almost unrecognizable (especially after shedding that awful hairdo), but I will say she does look quite gorgeous in my opinion.  Although after spending a reported $35,000 on plastic surgery she should look amazing!  That money was spent on a mommy makeover which consisted of tummy tuck, breast surgery, veneers, Botox, hair extensions, etc.

All of these things are very apparant while watching her on Dancing with the Stars twice a week which she was FINALLY voted off of last night.  Let's be honest....her dancing skills were certainly not keeping her safe from elimination but her fans supported her so much that she made it through the first few weeks.

I've got to be honest when I say I never was a follower of the Gosselins, until the episode of Jon and Kate plus 8 when they announced their divorce.  That was riveting television.  Everyone had speculated, but it seemed no one believed it until the Gosselins themselves confirmed it.  Somehow, even after the cancellation of Jon and Kate plus 8, Kate Gosselin has managed to keep herself in the limelight.  Kate has written a couple of books which led to book tours across the country.  She also has visited many talk shows and even served as co-host for quite some time on The View while Elizabeth Hasselback was on maternity leave.    Next stop:  Dancing with the Stars.

I don't think anyone ever imagined Kate Gosselin would be that bad at dancing.  Once again, I was also not a follower of Dancing with the Stars but came across the show one evening this year while flipping through the channels only to stop long enough to catch the dancing trainwreck that was Kate Gosselin.  It was painful.  I mean absolutely painful to watch, but for some reason I tuned in week after week just to watch Kate Gosselin dance.

For some strange reason I have a feeling this will not be the last we see of Kate Gosselin.  So my question is: What will Kate's next step be to keep herself in the Hollywood limelight?


Mommy Makeovers

Many plastic surgeons, including Dr. Conkright, are performing "Mommy Makeovers".  A Mommy Makeover is a combination of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or lift and frequently liposuction that are all performed in one session.  One particular woman who has not been shy discussing her mommy makeover is Hollywood actress Patricia Heaton, pictured above.  So for all you mommies out there, listen up!  You may find yourself having the same complaints about your body as listed below.

1) "I have flat, saggy breasts that are smaller now than before I was pregnant."  Pregnancy causes the breasts to grow very rapidly.  But after giving birth, breasts return to their pre-pregnancy size and sometimes even  smaller.  Also, the stretched skin may be unable to bounce back.  There are 3 solutions:

-Breast Lift:  If you are happy with your current breast size, but would like them to be perky again, this     may be the solution for you!

-Breast Augmentation:  If you are happy with the position of your breast, but would like them a little fuller, this may be the solution for you!

-Breast Lift with Implants:  If you are unhappy with both the size and position of your breast, you may consider a breast lift with Implants.

2)  "My stomach isn't as flat as it was before baby." A soft, flabby belly can be due to overstretched abdominal muscles.  It takes a lot of hard work to get your pre-pregnancy stomach back, but sometimes even after hundreds of crunches and hours of cardio at the gym many women still have stretched out skin and a post-pregnancy pooch.  The solution?

-Tummy Tuck:  A tummy tuck will take care of all the abdominal issues experienced post-pregnancy like stretch marks, excess skin and stretched abdominal wall.

3)  "I've been dieting and exercising for months, but I still have saddlebags."  As the body changes during pregnancy and weight accumulates, some areas, such as the inner and outer thighs, are harder to get back into shape than others.  The solution?

-Liposuction:  The lower body is one of the most popular areas treated through lipsosuction because it can be the most resistant to change.  If after diet and exercise, you are still experiencing unruly saddlebags and love handles, liposuction may be for you!

Ladies, if you have any of the same concerns as above, now is as good as time as ever to call Dr. Conkright and set up a complimentary consult.  It is time for you to do something for yourself and to be comfortable with your body once again!
