While some celebrities like Ashely Tinsdale have agreed that they have undergone plastic surgery for better noses, some such as Ashlee Simpson prefer to keep this information private despite much public speculation. However, no matter what the celebrities say, or don’t say, about their new noses there are many photos that are available for comparison of their before and after looks. Some of the nose jobs have turned out great and make the celebrities look stunning while others have had the opposite effect.

While many celebrities have gone under the knife to get the nose of their dreams, many of them have claimed to have different reasons for undergoing the procedure:

To boost self-esteem – some celebrities have admitted to having their nose surgeries to make themselves feel better. One such celebrity is Rebeca Adlington, a retired Olympic swimmer. Over the years, Rebeca has continuously been taunted on air by different media personalities and on social media with many people telling her she looked like a dolphin. This messed with her esteem but she finally got a nose job that gave her more confidence with her looks. Similarly, Kaley Cuoco announced that it was her best decision to go under the knife. You can see the photos of her before and after surgery here –

For health reasons –this is the exact reason that made Jenifer Aniston undergo a nose surgery, or so she claims. The celebrity says that if she had a choice she would not have gone under the knife, preferring to age naturally.

However, the celebrity had to undertake a nose job to allow her to breathe better.  Of course, it helped that the new nose improved her otherwise good looks. Cameron Diaz also went through a nose procedure for the same reason.

For the sake of it – there are some celebrities that are always on the lookout for procedures that will enhance their looks, or help them age gracefully. Such celebrities do not necessarily need the surgery as they already look great but do it for the sake, maybe to satisfy some deep sated need that they may have, or to cheat age as many may put it. One such celebrity is Priscilla Presley. Though Priscilla Presley has severally denied nose job rumours, and did not need the nose job, the difference in her photos clearly indicates a rhinoplasty.

Availability of money and the need to always look good will drive such celebrities to great lengths to obtain the look they need.

No matter the reasons behind their nose jobs, celebrities take seriously to the final product of their surgeries. Some few factors that help in getting good results after a nose job such as that of Ashlee Simpsons include getting a certified plastic surgeon that has great client feedback, taking all precautions to avoid unnecessary risks, being of proper mental and emotional health and ensuring you can afford all the costs associated with the surgery including the post-operative expenses. All in all, good judgement and the right reason for a nose job will ensure that you get good results and are satisfied with the final product.

A nose job is scientifically known as rhinoplasty and defined as the procedure that aims to reshape, resize or correct a person’s nose. There are different types of rhinoplasty procedures available today mainly due to advances in science and technology: non-surgical, open and closed rhinoplasty procedures. In the recent past, there has been an increase in nose job procedures demand with celebrities such as Helle Berry and Patrick Dempsey opting for nose jobs.

What is the actual cost of a nose job?

The actual cost of a nose job greatly varies from person to person; it is dependent on the kind of procedure you want and the experience that your surgeon have. However, the simplest non-surgical procedure can cost from as little as 300 dollars. Most procedures will cost more with the average procure costing about 4,000 dollars. More complex procedures will require more time to carry out and more expertise from the surgeon, this means that they will cost much more with some of the procedures costing as much as 10,000 dollars.

Is it covered by insurance?

If you are having a medically advised nose job, maybe to correct your breathing, your insurance will cover the costs. However, this kind of procedure requires a prior go ahead from the insurance company. On the other hand, aesthetic procedures are not covered by most insurance companies. This means you will have to dig deep into your pocket to achieve your dream look.

Hidden costs of a nose job

As much as many clinics will give a round figure for most procedures, there are other hidden or indirect costs that you will incur during or after the surgery. These costs are not usually part of the actual surgery. These could include:

Follow-up costs – you will need to go in for check-ups once in a while for the next 12 or so months after the surgery. Put in the fuel cost, consultation and medications that the doctor will suggest. This could run to a few hundreds of dollars.

Physical costs – these include the actual costs that you will incur during the surgery and during the post-operative recovery time. Intense nose jobs will require you to have someone around to take care of you and carry out chores around the house. This could mean hiring someone to do that. If your sister or friend comes to help you recover, you still need to foot their bills for the time of their stay highly increasing your overhead costs.

Emotional cost – One major thing that is not monetary and you need during and after a nose job is a strong emotional support system. It can come from family or friends.

All in all Helle Berry and Patrick Dempsey did not get their perfect nose jobs by going to cheap plastic surgeons. To achieve the most desired effect, look a plastic surgeon with a certified surgeon with a wealth of experience, a licenced facility and is registered with a major hospital. This will definitely cost you more but it is totally worth it.

Aside from his successes in Hollywood, Clint Eastwood will be remembered for having had numerous affairs and fathering many children with different women. From models, actresses to flight attendants, Clint Eastwood had/has a penchant for the finer women in life. He has even hooked up with a woman half his age!

At the young age of 23, Eastwood got hitched to Maggie Johnson; and this was just six months after meeting her on a blind date. The marriage did not last because in Eastwood’s own mind, he had married too young.

Clint Eastwood

During a trial separation with Johnson ten years later, an affair sprung up with Roxanne Tunis and the result was Kimber Eastwood. The baby’s presence, however, was kept secret from the public till July of 1969.

Clint and Johnson managed to patch up things between them and they had two children as result. It is said that Eastwood was not present at either birth and the marriage soon hit the rocks again. Johnson filed for separation in 1978 but the divorce would only come in the 80′s after she received plum, cash settlement. (More on:

Sandra Locke would become Eastwood’s next big catch, though for the 14 years that she lived with him, she too remained married to her gay husband, Gordon Anderson. Things would get somewhat creepy between them when Eastwood became a buddy of Anderson, even proceeding to buy him a house to share with his companion. Things would end badly between them after a tubal ligation and two abortions. Eastwood had new locks put to their Bel-Air home and had her things stashed away. A palimony suit followed in 1996 which saw Sandra smile all the way to the bank.

It was to be later revealed that as Locke warmed his bed during the period that they stayed together, he secretly fathered two children with Jacelyn Reeves, a flight attendant. The father was not acknowledged in either of the two children’s birth certificates.

In 1990, Eastwood would move in with Frances Fisher, after meeting her on the set of Pink Cadillac.They would their relationship in 1995 after having a baby girl in 1993. This was done amicably, though, and they still remain friends.

Seemingly, age is not a factor in his selection of mates. In 1993, he was interviewed by Dina Ruiz, an anchor 35 years younger than him. They would marry in 1996 after he threw her a surprise wedding and they had one daughter later. In 2013, she would announce that they had been living separately and soon after, filed for divorce. By the time that this was happening, Eastwood was 83 and already dating 41-year old Erica Fisher.

He has spread his seed far and wide but retains the tag of non-smoker. Much as he has been portrayed as a smoker in most of his films, he has stayed away from puffing in real life. Despite all these allegations, Clint Eastwood managed to acquire a huge net worth of $375 million. That’s truly amazing! See his Golf Club below:

Hopefully, his expansive gene pool will give rise to a prolific actor and director as he is; without the womanising tag though (pun intended)!

Nose JobIn the recent past, plastic surgery has become very popular all over the world. This could be attributed to development and growth of social media, and to some extent celebrities. While some celebrities go big changes through plastic surgery for example breast enhancement, some prefer small almost unnoticeable changes such as rhinoplasty or a nose job. Some such celebrities are Jenifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie whose nose jobs turned out perfect. To achieve such spectacular results there are several things you must consider before heading to surgery.

Get a certified plastic surgeon – with an increase in demand for plastic surgeries, the number of quack doctors in the market has increased. There are doctors or surgeons that have not been properly certified but they continue to practice plastic surgery. This means that they are working on a trial and error basis. This will automatically increase your chances of getting a horrible nose job done. Carry research and know what the surgeon you have selected can do. Looking at previous nose jobs from friends and other clients can help.

Understand the risks – every surgery, however minor it is, comes together with the possibility of risks that could need escalation to a bigger hospital. Some common risks include excessive bleeding, necrosis and tissue death. It is also important to use a surgeon who is registered with a major hospital where you can be referred to in case things go wrong. Also weigh the ratio of benefits to risks of your nose job.

Ensure you are the right candidate – apparently there are people who do not qualify for any plastic surgery. These include clients with a mental illness, those who are difficult to please, anyone undergoing a crisis such loss of a loved one, and those with impossible expectations. If you fit into any of this category, you need to wait for a while before you go in for a nose job or any other plastic surgery for that matter. You need to understand that plastic surgery will not solve your problems but might only give you the confidence you need to cope. Either way, ensure that you are at your optimal emotional and physical state for plastic surgery.

Calculate the cost of your surgery – plastic surgery is an expensive affair. Moreover, most insurance covers do not count it as a medical expense so it is not covered. This means you have to pay your way through not only the surgery but also the follow-up visit, medicine and any post-operative care that you will need. Remember that your surgeon might suggest a bed rest for a few days; make sure you can afford this before surgery. It could also be important to look for someone to carry out tasks that you will not be able to during and after the surgery as you recover, this will cost you. When you have covered all bases, you are more likely to have a less stressful time during your nose plastic surgery. Moreover, careful research will leave with a nose you can be proud of such as that of Jenifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. Who would not want such noses?

Obesity and pregnantWhen you are obese, it simply implies that you have more weight than is necessary for your age, height and body build. Excessive weight caused by the problem of being over-fat predisposes you to several health problems. Obesity is also a hindrance to one’s enjoyment of social life and as such, should therefore be prevented or at best, cured if this is possible. During pregnancy, it is easy to become obese because a woman usually is expected to add a bit of weight.

There are a number of health risks that are associated with obesity during a woman’s pregnancy. These risks do not only affect the mother but the child as well. It is in this regard that at the first prenatal visit, the weight and height of a woman are recorded to get their BMI. When this has been done, the next step is to determine the amount of weight that is safe for a woman to put on during pregnancy.

For a woman who is obese or otherwise overweight, it is important to have a thorough nutritional consultation. This means that a healthcare provider should guide them on the foods they ought to eat to be healthy and if possible, avoid the addition of more weight. Obese women who have succeeded in losing a bit of weight during their pregnancies have gone ahead to have safer deliveries. Safe exercises should also be encouraged in a woman who is overweight. Such include swimming and walking.

Of course, every pregnant woman should avoid physical exertion during exercises as this can pose a considerable risk to both mother and fetus. However, the need to shed weight should never be given precedence over the health of mother and child. This underscores the need for nutritional guidance for the obese, pregnant woman.

The healthiest thing for a woman to do is to lose excessive weight before conception. This greatly increases the chances of a safe conception and more normal birth. Of course, after you lose the weight and succeed in conceiving, it will be crucial to maintain a healthy weight limit during the pregnancy. Eating right and engaging in the right exercises are very important.

Does garcinia cambogia have any side effects? Generally no but the use of Garcinia Cambogia during pregnancy should not be considered. Weight loss supplements have the ability to rob you of the sufficient nutrients that you need during such times. Remember that your baby relies on you to provide it with the nutrients it needs to develop in a healthy manner.

As an obese, pregnant woman, you need to go for all your prenatal appointments, eat right and be active to stay healthy.
