With the rise of celebrity culture and affordable cosmetic procedures, demand for botox and lip fillers has seen a huge increase in Ireland over the past few years.

In fact, interest in the procedure is so high that surgeons at Cork University Hospital have discovered that Ireland comes out on top when it comes to the global number of online searches for lip fillers.

According to The Sunday Independent, the increased demand has led to a need for more cosmetic surgeons in Ireland.

The research also found a direct correlation between the number of people who searched for cosmetic procedures and the number of people who eventually got work done – meaning not only are we Irish thinking about lip fillers more than any other nation, but many of us are choosing to go ahead with the temporary enhancement.

If you do decide to get lip fillers, it is important to go to a licensed clinician, as cheap alternatives can lead to potentially dangerous results.

According to The Sun, Dublin-based cosmetic physician, Dr Patrick Treacy, said: “Young people are trying to copy these celebrities and I’ve even had a mother ask me to do the procedure on her 13-year-old daughter, obviously I said no.”

“They go to someone who has cheap fillers, or they order it off the internet which can be dangerous. They watch YouTube videos on how to do it and this can cause complications.”



There has been a LOT of buzz around Tulisa Contostavlos’s appearance lately, and whether or not she’s had any cosmetic work done to her face.

And now the former X Factor judge has opened up about the rumours, admitting that she DID have work done.

Tulisa says that she never denied that she had work done, because she'd not given an interview in the last year to do so.

She then went on to admit she has had cosmetic enhancement.

“Yes, I’ve had my lips done, and I’m happy with my lips. And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks,” she said. “Pictures of me where my face was swelling. I had water retention – where you have filler your face draws up a load of water. So my face began to swell like a balloon.”

“It really bugs me when people say I’ve had a nose job. That’s just makeup,” she said.

The singer said she made the decision to get the work done after losing a “load of weight”.

"So losing a stone, filler in my cheeks, my lips done and the contouring – and people do think, oh gosh, you so different,” she says.

But Tulisa says that she’s “happy with it”.

Asked if her Female Boss was still an accurate tattoo, she said, “More than ever. I've surprised myself. I feel stronger, wiser – enlightened. I feel I've had 10 years worth of my life lessons in one year, and money can’t buy that.”

We’re really glad you’re feeling more like yourself Tulisa!




Up until now, the cosmetic procedures used to remove wrinkles have had temporary side effects. However, new research shows that cosmetic fillers can now cause irreversible damage.

U.S scientist found that injections of fat and collagen into the forehead can lead to permanent blindness when fillers get into the blood vessels.

According to Dr. Michelle Carle from Los Angeles, complication during a procedure like this is very rare, but also ‘very significant’.

Dr Carle and her team studied three cases of patients who were left with impaired vision after treatment.In these cases, the injections interfered with the blood supply to the patients’ eye artery.

“We recommend that blindness or significant visual loss be added as a risk when discussing these procedures with patients, because these are devastating consequences,” she said.

There are also reports of patience suffering a stroke and even dying after cosmetic procedures.
