LipoSite provides readers with a quick guide to body types, including a list of body contouring procedures appropriate for each type and fashion tips to help women play up the positives of each type.

A statistic published in “How Do Women Really Feel About How They Look?” by "O, The Oprah Magazine" shows that 45.5% of teens have considered plastic surgery.

The article also reports that half of all teen girls polled were self-conscious about their appearance and nearly 60 percent use software to enhance photographs of themselves.

“Body obsession is nothing new,” says Shawn Miele for LipoSite. “But, even though LipoSite is a portal to a whole range of body contouring procedures and professionals... plastic surgery isn’t intended to resolve issues related to a negative self image.”

Women face body image issues at any age, from young girls and pre-teens to teenagers and adults. In response to the information gleaned from the "O Magazine" poll, LipoSite has published a free, online article containing tips designed to determine body type to help women feel better about what they see reflected back in their mirrors.

“Whether a woman thinks her body is perfect or not,” explains Miele, “understanding her body type and knowing how to play up what she’s already got can make her happier.”

Miele says, “Yes, cosmetic plastic surgery boosts self confidence by reshaping bodies. But, as any experienced plastic surgeon will tell you, women who don’t accept their bodies ‘as is’ are poor candidates for surgery and may be asked to reconcile those emotions prior to [surgery].”

LipoSite provides readers with a quick guide to body types, including a list of body contouring procedures appropriate for each type and fashion tips to help women play up the positives of each type.

The body-type model appears in the book "The Look: A Guide to Dressing from the Inside Out" by Designer Randolph Duke who has dressed Hollywood’s hottest bodies – including Angelina Jolie’s and Hillary Swank’s.

Duke’s model identifies the five distinct body types of linear, hourglass, lower figured, upper figured, and middle figured. On LipoSite, women can identify their body type, and learn more about liposuction, body contouring, and body sculpting procedures. Additionally, they can search the database of board certified plastic surgeons.
