The Brits Call It Pillow Face But We Call It Fillers And Celebs Are Doing It


If you really take a good look at Hollywood these days, you will definitely see that famous faces are looking much fuller, with chipmunk cheeks, as some call this cosmetic beauty trend.

What is it?

The Brits call it 'Pillow Face.'

And who's doing it? Or allegedly doing it? Take a look at our photos from the top:
Daryl Hannah. Madonna. Pamela Anderson. Courtney Love. And gossip tongues are wagging that many other beauties are on the filler bandwagon......Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta Jones. Kylie Minogue. Elizabeth Hurley. And the over-40 list goes on....

And these Hollywood celebs can get away with saying they haven't undergone plastic surgery, because fillers or injectables like Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, and Sculptra are not considered invasive procedures. All this cosmetic procedure involves are some painful shots into the skin with a tiny needle. And a new rounder, more youthful appearance is created.


Of course, a skilled plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist can make all the difference.

And we read in the British DailyMail.com that a little filler goes a long way, according to injectables specialist Dr. Michael Prager:

"The main problem arises," says Dr. Prager, "when celebrities don't just try to restore lost volume, but create a wholly new and artificial face. When I use filler, I'm not aiming to create something that wasn't there before. This is one of the biggest mistakes that can be made. Nor am I trying to create carbon copy or cookie cutter faces that all look the same."

British consultant Rajiv Grover asks patients to bring in photographs of themselves in their 20s and 30s to avoid this problem.

"The key to natural enhancement is to use their younger faces as a roadmap for treatment. I don't want to give my patients huge round cheeks they never had because that would look ridiculous,' he says."



We think a little filler can look natural and youthful, but some plastic surgeons believe a facelift is the only way to go, and that too much filler can look odd, and doesn't actually reduce sagging found in faces over 40.


What do you think? Does these celebrities look better with 'Pillow Face?'

Madonna's cheeks look pretty at some camera angles, and other times just plain weird. Not sure these pros can make faces look naturally full. Maybe best to stay away from 'pillow face.'
