Can cosmetic surgery change facial bone shape?

I am a little ugly and am planning to get a plastic surgery,

I think there is a problem with my jaw's bone structure

I have heard of cosmetic jaw surgery but it doesn't change the basic shape of single jaw.

so, are there any surgeries available that can alter my jaw bone's basic shape?


please don't tell me to be happy with what I am as I don't compromise that easy.Can cosmetic surgery change facial bone shape?
yea, there r things like bone implants, then maxillo facial surgeries done hwich could really change the way ur face wud look,

there r orthos, as well as maxillo facial surgeons who do tht, all these come under the broad head plastic surgery, so consulting a plastic surgeon wud really help.Can cosmetic surgery change facial bone shape?
The usual procedures are implants or fillers. Also lipo. I doubt they will shave your jaw (mandible) bone.

Dramatic changes can occur just by having a chin implant and the fat suctioned out or by having saline implants over the cheek bone area.

DO NOT accept silicone in your face and always research any Doctor's qualifications before you go under the knife. Some procedures are even available from an aesthetic practitioner! Much cheaper and safer.
Yes and no. They can add an implant to the jaw, but they can't remove anything, so they could make it bigger, but not smaller, if that makes any sense. Make sure you really thoroughly check out your surgeon, getting a good reputable one is very important.

What do you think of ladies who spend lots of money at the cosmetic counters at fancy stores?

When I go to the Mall I walk through the fancy stores and see all kinds of real pretty women buying cosmetics in the high end counters. I suspect this money would be better spent on more reasonably prices beauty goods at Target or Walmart, especially during a recession.

Why would a women spend so much money on overpriced cosmetics at a store like Macy's Nordstroms, Saks and Bloomingdales in today's economy?What do you think of ladies who spend lots of money at the cosmetic counters at fancy stores?
First of all your question is posted out of the class envy to the rich. It is people like yourself that are buying into the Obama liberal crap. First of all those rich people have worked hours and hours etc. to build their career or business and if they want to buy expensive it is THEIR RIGHT we live in a free country. Remeber this instead of hating them for buying high end cosemtics work hard and strive to be able to buy it yourself not be lazy and force communism on others to buy cheap products just because you cannot afford them.

And lastly I want to add as a note to open everyone's eyes

When Obama says he will not tax the poor and only tax the rich WAKE UP TO THE LIE first of all the poor are not taxed at all as is they get everything back when they file their taxes and all the rich business owners will move the jobs out of this country and never pay taxes and guess what its the middle class that will suffer they will pay for it and finally to teach you about economics my dear if you raise taxes to zing it to ';THE MAN'; its people like you that will pay for that tax increase because the cost of goods will increase so your Target brand covergirl istead of being 5.00 will cost you 10.00

Care about you, yourself stop envying those that have something you don't have and work harder so you can have it! I write this having escaped a communist country!

Also I want to answer NIK

Mineral makeup is not good for you when it contains BISMUTH this is a kin to arsenic and clogs pores etc. No matter what the makeup you SHOULD NEVER SLEEP IN IT that will destroy little by little your complexion and spin you off into a dull texture. Finally about yourname you are mistaken its not 10cents and you have to buy thousands and thousands of pieces and still pay min.10.00 dollars on average they actually manufacture for companies like Jane Iredale and L'oreal etc... Just wanted to make that point clear as your are mis informing the people asking questions.What do you think of ladies who spend lots of money at the cosmetic counters at fancy stores?
There is a big difference between drug store products and brand name products when it comes to quality. I typically use drug store products since I don't have a lot of money to spend on makeup. But for Christmas I got a gift set of Estee Lauder makeup and it is the best makeup I have ever used. So if you can afford it, especially when it comes to concealer and powder it is worth splurging on.
I guess that I'm one of those women. Makeup is my one of my guilty pleasures and I think that alot-not all-of the more high end products do have better benefits then the cheaper products. There are some in the cheaper brands that do have wonderful color payoff or work wonderful for your skin. I work and sometimes I love to splurge like that and buy cool makeup products.
I am 23 and I have no kids, I work my *** off ( I went to school and got a degree) to have nice things. I make double what some of the people I work with make. That doesn't make me better than them, I just knew that I wanted to have a certain kind of lifestyle and did something to have it. I am one of those people who go to the makeup counter and buy nice makeup. I love Dillards, Macy's, Sephora, and Ulta. I usually buy MAC, Bare Minerals, Stila, Clinique, Perscriptives, Hard Candy and Urban Decay. I love the eyeshadows, eyeliners, blushes, bronzers...etc.

That being said, I STILL go to Target and buy my face wash and stuff.

So. Why exactly should I take ALL my money and spend it at Target or Walgreens? Doesn't it all end up in the same place eventually? I still make sure my bills are paid and there will always be food on our table. The cost of my make up isn't going to send us to the poor house.

If some one chooses to buy a car during a recession and they can afford to buy a Jaguar, should they spend it some where more reasonable like a Chevy dealership and buy an Aveo? Same concept.
Its funny because most of those places get their makeup from a place called yourname which charges very low prices like 10 cents for an eyeshadow and then they just jack up the prices. there are some advantages to buying more expensive stuff, like a mineral makeup. 100% pure mineral makeup can work wonders for your face. You could wear it to bed and it wouldn't clog your pores, (unless you wore it all day and now have all of the daily toxins mixed in). It truly is amazing, but a cheaper brand might not be authentic. Jane Iredale is great, not too expensive, 100% mineral, and works wonders!
Some people are make-up addicts and want to look their best and some people are just very rich or have a good job and can afford nice things.

But i don't really care as all make-up is made up with the same ingredients and doesn't look any different on you when you used the same kind, like eyeliner, expensive or very cheap will just look the same.

I don't buy expensive stuff either because being able to afford food and other important needs is more important then looks.
Well this is just one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard!

If people don't buy these goods then others will lose their jobs. What do you think THAT does to the economy. Besides, if I can afford to buy it. What business is it of yours?
Try just thinking of it as their money and their right to spend it however they want. We all like to splurge and treat ourselves from time to time. If that's what makes them happy I'm all for it. It's basically harmless.
I don't have a problem with it, it's what they want to spend their money on. And in this today's economy we need people to buy more things not stop alltogether, otherwise there will be no money coming in!
By and large, the very rich aren't affected by the failing economy.

At least not enough to stop buying luxury goods.
What they do does not concern me. I am happy that I don't spend much on cosmetics, especially at upscale stores, but Walgreen's usually has what I want at a good price, and Target as well.
their money their problem. yep.

get over it.

what do you think of people asking questions about stuff that has nothing to do with them?
That is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!! Who do you think you are ragging on people, just because they can buy something you can't. Get a JOB!
I don't think anything of them because it's none fo my business what they spend their money on.
Because they have rich husbands or daddies
some of it really is better made and better for your skin!

ART - Anyone use cosmetics as art materials?


My wife died - and she had all this cosmetic stuff, and my artistic mind was thinking about using this stuff as art materials - like paint or whatever.. like the lipstick, the blush, the foundation, pencils, or whatever. I know that sounds nuts.. but I'm curious if anyone else thought of this and has done this, and what can be used and what can't be used. I don't know what to do with her things yet. It's still too painful to deal with, but I'm slowly starting to deal with it some.

open to ideas.

thanksART - Anyone use cosmetics as art materials?
I had the idea of a portrait spring to mind, perhaps using lipstick would be really nice. Just the outline of a person face though.

Check Egon Schiele. He did some great portraits, in a very unique style.ART - Anyone use cosmetics as art materials?
This guy does many drawings and paintings with very unusual sutff, in this video he does a portrait of someone using mascara. Check out his profile you might get some ideas.鈥?/a>
Everything under the sun has been used for artwork including food stuff. When you're up to it I think a portrait of your wife with her materials might be an idea worth considering?
I am so very sorry for your loss and will be praying for you.

Nail polish is used some times for art. My friend's aunt does it. I am sure lipstick and blush could posibly be used. Eye shadow would be cool and liners for the lines of the drawing/painting
It's a nice idea on using your wife's items onto making a painting. I usee to use eyeliners and lipsticks to draw random stuff, but i stopped... I think it's a great way to express your feelings (especially on what happened), and although you may think these items are... precious and you don't want to use them, I think it'd be great. :D
i did that once. it turned out good. liquid liner works good. so does other eyeliner and almost everything will work. just start experimenting. maybe you could even do a portrait of your wife to remember her and you'll be using something that will make it even more special because it was hers. I hope this helps.

What should I major if I want to go into pharmaceutical research or cosmetic research company?

I am deciding what to major, since I want to have a career in a science research company or cosmetic research company? Which one suits better, chemistry or biology?What should I major if I want to go into pharmaceutical research or cosmetic research company?
Definitely chemistry or chemical engineering. I am an intern at a pharmaceutical company now. It really helps to get a doctorate in chemistry as well. Otherwise with a bachelors or master's you will just be doing experiments in the lab while the PhD chemist does all the ';brain'; work.What should I major if I want to go into pharmaceutical research or cosmetic research company?
For cosmetics, chemistry. You aren't making skin--you're making stuff to put on skin.

For science research, either one or even ecology, physics or computer science. If geothermal power gets going, geology could be an up-and-comer.

I have kind of long, oval nostrils and a bulbous tip on my nose.

Homemade Cosmetics-Does anyone have recipes to make homemade eye cream, cosmetics, lotions, cleaners etc.?

Honey Mask Recipe

The best facial mask is honey. Place a cloth in warm water and apply to your face to open the pores. Smear on honey, and leave on for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, then use cold water to close the pores. Use once a week.

Miracle Whip Exfoliator

';Yes, I am talking about the same Miracle Whip your Aunt Mable uses in her macaroni salad. Apparently, women all over the US are using this salad dressing ingredient on their faces to remove dead flaky skin.

I have not tried it myself, but supposedly, KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Exfoliating Facial makes an amazing treatment for normalizing over-oily skin.

Here is how you apply this ';miracle cream';:

Make sure all your hair is pulled back from your face. Apply a thin layer of the KMW all over your face, up to the eyelashes and make sure to also put some on your neck. The ';fumes'; from the vinegar may bother you so walk around the house to try to escape them. LOL!

Leave on for 10 minutes, then massage gently. The dead skin cells on your face will roll off in rubbery little balls. Rinse your skin with tepid water, then cleanse as usual following your regular beauty regime. If you apply the KMW every day, in 6-8 weeks your skin should be completely renewed.

I cannot help but wonder if this Miracle Whip eats away at the dead skin cells on your face, what does it do to the inside of the body when someone eats it?? Pretty scary!!! One person believes that the vinegar in the Miracle Whip is what causes the exfoliation and rejuvenation. If that is true, why not try a mixture of organic apple cider vinegar with some olive oil, apply that and see what happens? One could whip together the olive oil and apple cider vinegar, apply it to their face and then use the leftovers on their salad!

I think I will start experimenting with some ingredients and try to come up with a facial recipe to rival the KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP!';

Avocado is a naturally rich moisturizer. Mash the meat of the avocado into a creamy texture. Massage into the face and neck . Leave on for 15 minutes and gently rinse off.

  • How far would you go to have cosmetic surgery?

    I read there are females in Asia who go for more than 15 operations, and western females who do upper and lower body parts as well. And they become so beautiful as to be almost unrecognizable, esp facial features. Are there serious or negative effects to their health, soul-mates, children,etc?

    Thanks for responding! :-))How far would you go to have cosmetic surgery?
    I think the risks to their health shouldn't be too severe, especially since medical technology is so advanced these days- there's even non-invasive liposuction nowadays!

    But the thing is, in places like South Korea where the number of people who had done plastic surgery is ridiculously high, the people start to scarily look alike. Just check out Korean female stars and after awhile, you will find difficulty distinguishing them apart. The huge eyes- check. the double eyelids- check. The straight nose- check. The high cheekbones- check. The pouty lips- check. Suddenly, Korean actresses start to look like clones of each other.

    I have absolutely nothing against plastic surgery. Most people use it for aesthetic purposes, rather than reconstructive ones, and it is a societal norm (though hypocritically, some people still frown upon it behind others' backs). But such ';work'; leads on to wonder: How will their children end up looking like? Their children will end up looking like their original selves, which couldn't have been too good-looking for them to want to have plastic surgery. Then how will the children feel if they realise that they don't look like mummy/daddy at all?

    Such implications are not thought of when someone goes for MAJOR plastic surgery to aesthetically enhance one's looks. But still, this trend is young. Wait another 10 years or so, when the children of aesthetically enhanced parents have grown up.How far would you go to have cosmetic surgery?
    thats pretty discusting, for me im never ever going to get cosmetic surgery. every wrinkle on someones face tells a story of their life, and i personally think thats REAL beauty.

    i think its absouletely ridiculous how the world is today, expecting everyone to look good withought actually seem to care about personalitys anymore.

    if someones unhappy with their body then why not go to the gym?

    thats what i do!

    and you are welcome :)
    I wouldn't even CONSIDER cosmetic surgery.
    I wouldn't do it. As much as I hate my flaws, at the end of the day, I forget about them.
