You may have seen Jill Zarin on the hit reality televison show, “The Real Housewife of New York City” as being one of the more outspoken and attention seeking housewife. A week after she stepping onto the red carpet for a event she attendend, Zarin received alot of attention from the press, soaking in all the attention and joking about her plastic surgery speculation on twitter, the New York housewife came clean with admitting she had a “liquid face lift.” she mentioned to People magazine: “I have a liquid facelift every six months. It really works. No knives!”
A liquid facelift is the injection of cosmetic fillers to make the face appear to be fuller. Rather than using a filler to tackle individual smile lines, Zarin’s face was injected with Restylane along the jaw line and up along the sides of her face to “fill and lift”. But, does it make her look younger?
Dr. Payman Simoni, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon of Simoni Plastic Surgery located in Beverly Hills, California says: “That using the word ‘face lift’ with this procedure is deceiving, a face lift is a lift of the loose and fallen muscles obtained over time and with aging. Jill Zarin’s new look doesn’t look natural or youthful but instead somewhat distorted. Injectables should be done by a specialist who understands the facial anatomy and the certain area’s that should and should not be injected. If not done correctly it can distort the face changing the way you look.” Dr. Simoni also explains, ”Cosmetic injectables are used to restore and rejuvinate wrinkles and skin, turning back the clock making you look the way you did 5-10 years ago, not like a different person.”
