I've just seen an advert on tv featuring Simon Cowell . I've seen many pictures of Mr Cowell in the press I do not watch X Factor mainly because of the boredom factor . Having said that his face doesn't look like it used to has he had Botox in his lips , why can't people grow old gracefully ?

It's gotten to the point where some of these celebs are no longer recognizable.
I like Dolly Partons comment " it takes a lot of money to look this cheap "
Exactly Bob , Tom Jones cannot have room for much more work surely, they must have pulled the skin up from his feet his face looks that tight . Carol Vordermans another one that is slowly becoming unrecognisable .

Does anyone know of any Birmingham men who benefitted from the pioneering surgery mentioned by Lady P in the previous post. I know that men from all over the country were treated at East Grinstead Hospital. Viv.

If Archie McIndoe could see how his pioneering work in WW2 was being used now I think he's have a fit!
Plastic surgery, in the UK was (I think), first used in WW1 but it was McIndoe who greatly improved the treatment using it at his hospital in East Grinstead.
I watched a TV series years ago on PBS here surrounding the boys and the burns, and the work of McIndoe

It does seem some modern day cosmetic surgeons make a mockery of his work, but thankfully some perform miracles in reconstructive surgery
Does anyone else recall the series typical Sunday night fare, I would love to watch it again.

The one thing that makes me smile about all this , women having their lips pumped full of this rubbish . The end product makes it look as though they took up that well known offer "Do you wanna thick lip" ?

Although not in Birmingham, Wordesley Hospital, Stourbridge was the plastic surgery hospital for the West Midlands. They began pioneering this type of surgery during the Great War and have a website:


This was another hospital I spent time in during the 1960's. The wards were all the 'huts' from the war. The huts were in a long row joined by an open veranda and the operating theatre was a hut in the middle of the row. When it was time for your operation you were wheeled out into the open air on a trolley and taken to the theatre hut. OK in the summer but not in the winter!

I used to enjoy 'Men Behaving Badly' on the box - silly, but funny. And in particular I enjoyed looking at Leslie Ash, a beautiful girl if ever there was one. And then - she had her lips 'fixed'. It was by all accounts disastrous.
Is she still seen on TV these days, would anyone know?
