Madonna Plastic Surgery Secrets: Sclerotherapy and Ribbon Lifts?



Madonna Plastic Surgery Update. Is sclerotherapy the same as”hand de-veining”? We ask because a 2016 story by Radar Online quotes a doctor who suggest that the music superstar had “de-veined” her hands to get rid of wrinkles. Anyhoo, here’s what some doctors are saying about the change in Madonna’s hands:

Dr. Anthony Youn: Madonna’s hands look much softer and more youthful! It is possible that she underwent injections of fillers into her hands. This a very common treatment that provides drastic results. In some cases, these results can last a year or two. [Want more female celebrity plastic surgery?]

Dr. Zara Harutyunyan: It looks like Madonna did dermal fillers, such as Sculptra, Voluma, Juvederm, or Radiesse. Madonna could have also could have done a heat laser therapy prior to the filler to help tighten any loose skin.

Dr. Michael Salzhauer: Madonna could have deveined her hands by having the veins removed surgically. Good for her!

Dr. Daniel G. Kolder: The most common way to rejuvenate the back of one’s hands is through a process called ‘redermalization mesotherapy’. This is a very safe procedure that produces excellent outcomes as it fills in the space between the vessels previously occupied by fat.

Now here are the hands in question. This one was taken from whatever Madonna plastic surgery treatment was done:

Madonna Plastic Surgery: ­Sclerotherapy? (published 06 July 2010). What is ­sclerotherapy and what does Madonna got to do with it? Well, Famewatchers, ­sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure which is used to eliminate spider and varicose veins. Madonna is reportedly using it to hide the veins in her hands.

Details from the Daily Mirror:

“Yes, the Material Girl is seeking help from her ­dermatologist Dr Fredric Brandt to combat her pop-out veiny mitts – and until then she’s doing her utmost to make sure they stay hidden from prying lenses.

“My mole in the Madonna camp tells me: “She’s managed to work wonders with her face over the past few years thanks to Dr. Brandt, but hands have always been the big age giveaway. “Madonna hates the appearance of her hands and says they are too “old lady”.

“So far Dr Brandt is talking to Madge about chemical peels, intense ­sessions of ­microdermabrasion, injectable fillers and ­scierotherapy. But according to my sources she’s already had the ­scierotherapy – when a solution is ­injected into a vein causing it to turn white and ­gradually disappear – and a round of fillers costing an estimated £2,000. And apparently she’s thrilled with the results.”

Well, we’re happy that she’s happy with the results of her sclerotherapy sessions. She is becoming a sad caricature of herself with all these plastic surgery procedures she’s doing but we gotta thank her for expanding our vocabulary because without her cosmetic adventures we would be clueless on what sclerotherapy means, right?

Madonna Plastic Surgery is Ribbon Lift? (published 3 March 2009). What is “ribbon lift”? It’s reportedly a surgical procedure which may be Madonna’s secret for her, uhm, youthful looks. What’s the procedure like and how much is a ribbon lift? Well, according to a report by the British tabloid Daily Mail, a ribbon lift costs around US$6,000 (approximately £4,300).

So how is this ribbon lift done? Apparently, they implant a ribbon around your earlobe and this will supposedly lift your neck tissues and make you look younger. The ribbon dissolves and will be absorbed in two months and its beauty effect lasts for three years.

So how does the Daily Mail know about this Madonna plastic surgery secret? Well, it is just quoting Grazia Magazine which, for its part, interviewed a plastic surgeon named Alex Karidis. According to said surgeon “Madonna was showing telltale signs of the procedure in a photograph taken days prior to the star-studded ceremony”.

Mr Karidis explains how the ribbon lift procedure works: ‘[A tube-like device] is tunnelled under the skin and has lots of tiny hooks that attach to the muscle and tissue. We then pull it upwards to lift the whole area. It doesn’t appear as if the ribbon has dissolved properly. However, she looks to have cleverly covered it with a loose hairstyle at the Oscars party.’
