When you first see a celebrity after they have a plastic surgery procedure, ever wonder how they got their work done without us being none the wiser? When we saw all of Kylie Jenner's many physical changes, it made us think: what is the best way to be discrete about a major makeover? We asked plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Miller for his expert advice.
Dr. Miller, is there an ideal time of year to undergo a plastic surgery procedure?
Body surgery is typically busiest during the spring because everyone wants to get better before summertime. Facial surgery is busiest when people have more time off from work, like during the summer or holidays. However, we stay busy all year long.
What are some of the dead giveaways that someone just had work done?
For the face, there may be some bruising or swelling still present. There are special types of makeup, one being Dermablend, that can disguise things like redness. It can be difficult to tell for body surgery because clothes cover a lot up.
What kinds of planning do the stars do to strategically have their plastic surgery stay under the radar?
They will do it when they don't have to go out for a while or make any public appearances. This gives time for swelling and bruising to go down.
Why do you think no one knew about Kylie Jenner's suspected breast augmentation and her admitted lip injections while she recovered?
If she stayed inside and didn't talk to the press, then it would be easy to hide. Also, if you avoid sending out Instagram photos of yourself recovering, it will be much easier to conceal it.
