A Brief History of Butts (and how to get a more shapely one)

Posted by Dr Ash Dutta on 17 November 2015

Rounder and more voluptuous buttocks have been celebrated as a symbol of womanly beauty and fertility since time immemorial. The Greeks and Romans depicted voluptuous bottoms in their art, Rubens loved to paint them, Victorian women wore bustles to accentuate theirs, Sir Mix-a-Lot wrote a song about them, and Kim Kardashian broke the internet with hers.  But it wasn’t until the 1990s, when Jennifer Lopez sashayed into the cultural mainstream, that a gl...

How to look years younger without going under the knife

Posted by Dr Ash Dutta on 17 November 2015

The ever so glamorous Bette Davis famously said ‘getting older is not for sissies’. Clearly this wasn't a woman in need of much cosmetic assistance but none of us is immune to the effects of getting older. The ageing process causes our skin to lose its firmness, fullness and elasticity. Our cells lose their regenerative power and the advancing years cause the face’s natural lines to become deeper and more pronounced. Until somebody discovers the myth... Read more

Laser Skin Resurfacing Gives Hope to Vietnam’s ‘napalm girl’ More Than 40 Years on

Posted by Dr Ash Dutta on 30 October 2015

Advanced laser technology is to thank for one of this year’s most inspiring news stories. Kim Phúc became a tragic symbol of the Vietnam war when, in June 1972, she was photographed as she ran naked, screaming, and terribly burned from a napalm strike on her village in the south of the country. The photograph, taken by AP photojournalist Nick Ut, would later win the Pulitzer Prize and be regarded as one of the most haunting images to emerge from the con... Read more

Living With A Secret Soul

Posted by on 7 July 2015

I wouldn’t class myself as a Vanity Fair reader but I couldn't wait to go out and buy the July issue, which looked at the challenging subject of gender reassignment surgery, something relevant to us here at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre. Transgender has always been a touchy subject, with most people unsure how to even have a conversation about it let alone live with the issue. Caitlyn Jenner appeared on July's front cover of Vanity Fair, in my opinion look... Read more

Smoking Through The Ages to Cosmetic Surgery

Posted by Sophia Wright on 30 June 2015

Smoking and everything that it represents has come a very long way. The first rolling cigarette machine was introduced by James Bonsack in 1883, during a contest sponsored by a tobacco company named Allen and Ginter. The company promised 75,000 dollars to the first person that invented a fast cigarette rolling machine. Smoking has always been known to be a health risk since the 1800s, however for reasons of financial gain, the health risks were muted until... Read more

Has She or Hasn’t She?

Posted by Sophia Wright on 19 June 2015

The term breast augmentation has unfairly taken the stereotype of over the top or large breasts, which in most cases are not in proportion to the patient's natural frame. The Daily Mail, Pinterest and Instagram are full of “perfect” female forms and why wouldn’t you want that for yourself? I know only too well the feeling of putting on a dress that doesn't hang properly and padding my bra every day because there’s nothing to fill it. Understandably... Read more

Through Her Eyes

Posted by Sophia Wright on 5 June 2015

At 54 years old, working full time with three children and three grandchildren, I don't have much time to myself. Every day that I looked in the mirror I could see the signs of a busy life. Age was creeping up on me. I had heard of Dr Dutta at Aesthetic Beauty Centre in Sunderland, so decided to pay him a visit. After a very friendly honest consultation, Dr Dutta advised me what procedure would be best. He took my eyelids and raised them with his fingers w... Read more
