Why everyone's rushing to fix the 'too-far face' | Publication: The Telegraph

31/10/2016 | Cosmetic surgeons are increasingly spending their time deflating 'pillow faces' and fixing overly Botoxed eyes. So what's behind the rise of the reverse nip/tuck? We’ve all seen a ‘too-far face’. The one with the waxy sheen, plumped-up cheeks or eyes that just don’t look quite right. As reported in The Telegraph earlier this year, the ‘too-far face’ is a term used to describe somebody who has gone past the tipping point of cosmetic work – when smooth becomes frozen and when nicely plump becomes pillow-like. There are several reasons people look overdone, says cosmetic doctor David Eccleston, who has been injecting fillers and Botox for 22 years, and travels worldwide to train other practitioners.

Sit-ups can give you a saggy stomach | Publication: Mail Online

04/02/2016 | Dr David Eccleston, of Birmingham’s MediZen Clinic, says that, over time, repeated sit-ups can ruin your appearance, giving you a craggy-looking turkey neck. He says: ‘The platysma is a broad, thin sheet of muscles stretching from the jaw to the upper chest. As the skin ages and thins, the muscles look like bands. ‘There are usually between two and four on each side of the neck. The more sit-ups you do, where the abdominal muscles are not fully engaged, the more you force these muscles to contract to help lift your head off the floor. Over time, they become more defined and noticeable.’ With women not getting clear advice on exercise, and blithely hitting the gym mat week after week, many like Becky are finding out too late the cost of over-doing sit-ups.

By the time I started school, I was only too aware that I was different. On hot days, sweat would trickle down my sides and soak the waistband of my skirt. Desperate to hide the dinner plate-sized wet patches, I kept my arms virtually superglued to my side. If I needed to reach something, I’d move my whole body rather than stretch out an arm. Back at home, I’d peel off my clammy clothes, but within seconds of showering I’d be drenched again. The washing machine was forever whirring and my tops would fall apart after just a few wears.

It is estimated that anything between 0.5 and 3 per cent of patients doesn't respond at all to the neurotoxin, which works by blocking messages in the nerve endings and weakening facial muscles for around four months at a time.
