The Duchess of Cambridge has been forced to deny rumours she has had ‘baby botox’ after a prominent plastic surgeon posted about her complexion.
A prominent British plastic surgeon has posted before and after photos claiming that The Duchess of Cambridge has used baby botox to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Munir Somji’s post, which has since been deleted, prompted rare action from the palace who denied the claims and said they were ‘categorically untrue’.
The post in question featured two photos of the duchess alongside a caption which read “our Kate loves a bit of baby botox”.
“Note the reduction of lines on the forehead,” Dr. Somji said. “Also notice the depression of the medial brow but elevation of the lateral tail of the brow.”
‘Baby botox’ refers to the process of injecting multiple amounts of the product into the face in smaller amounts to reduce fine lines and wrinkles without creating the ‘frozen’ look often associated with the cosmetic treatment.
“It prevents wrinkles but you’ll still have movement,” specialist Pamela Benito told Byrdie. “(It will) lift and tighten.”
Secrets And Lies
Marketing manager for Dr Somji’s clinic, Sammy Curry, said she could not confirm or deny whether The Duchess of Cambridge was in fact one of their clients and that the post was merely a way of showing the possible transformation.
The palace, however, says that members of the royal family never endorse commercial activity, with the rumours dismissed. Their statement, however, has done little to silence the gossip with many saying that the camera never lies.
Whatever the truth is, we can’t help but feel sorry for Kate. To have your appearance constantly analysed and debated over must be incredibly frustrating. If she has indeed visited the clinic, we doubt she will make a return visit after this drama!
