London, November 30, 2016: Most of the tweets about plastic surgery are about celebrities while only a few of those are posted by credentialed plastic surgeons that offer evidence-based information, a study has revealed.
NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.
“Twitter provides a great opportunity to engage with and educate patients and the public about plastic surgery, but all too often, the conversation is dominated by celebrity gossip and marketing by practitioners who are not Board-certified plastic surgeons,” said lead researcher Olivier Alexandre Branford from The Royal Marsden Hospital, London.
The researchers analysed 2,900 tweets — including the words “plastic surgery” — and found that only six per cent of tweets about plastic surgery were actually made by plastic surgeons while 70 per cent were posted by the public.
While the researchers believe that Twitter “may be the best-suited platform to fulfil the role of public education and engagement,” the study reveals that a high percentage — 37 per cent — of tweets with hashtag “PlasticSurgery” by plastic surgeons were self-promotional.

It also noted that only five per cent of tweets included the “PlasticSurgery” hashtag.
The report, published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, found that 50 per cent of the tweets were about celebrity plastic surgery while 44 per cent were about aesthetic surgery.
Only a few posts provided information about the basic science of plastic surgery, patient safety issues or topics related to reconstructive surgery.

The researchers suggested plastic surgeons to reclaim plastic surgery from the tabloid press, celebrity gossip and cosmetic quackery in the interests of public safety and quality outcomes. (IANS)
Mumbai, October 19, 2017: My Instagram feed is perpetually filled with pictures and videos of cute animals.
A baby goat sipping milk for a bottle with a feeder. A small puppy wearing a bow-tie. And a tiger who jumps into his trainer’s arms for a hug. For a lot of us, a major part of our time online is spent looking at pictures of baby goats, puppies, elephants and almost all other animals. Their cute antics warm our hearts and bring a smile on our face.
Saying that we all religiously follow our favorite stars on Instagram will be an understatement. Correct me if I am wrong, but fans know when was the last time Priyanka Chopra left her comfy Mumbai apartment for a coffee stroll, or what did Sushant Singh Rajput wear for his meeting.
Now, what happens when these two combine?
Our favorite celebrities and their pets? Sounds like heaven to me!
If you are a regular Instagram user, you would know of the hashtag – Dogs of Instagram.
As much as we would like to know about our favorite celebrities, it is their four-legged best friends that equally catch our attention! Many celebrity pets have their own Instagram accounts that you must follow if you aren’t already. Check out our list!

Tia is a super cute Shih Tzu puppy living the diva life in Mumbai with her darling ‘mummy’ actor Sophie Choudry and ‘granny’ Yasmin.
One look at this little one’s Instagram account and you are sure to start judging your own profile.
Tia can be seen accompanying mama Sophie to the groomer’s, at the airport, for pilates, and almost everywhere else!
Oh, did we tell you that Tia has also featured as the cover girl on one of India’s leading dog magazines?
This self-proclaimed ‘mama’s girl’ has swanky birthday parties, car rides and is a favorite with the paparazzi!
Complete with her cute shoes and bows in almost all colors, Tia makes for our favorite celebrity pets!
2. Batuk Nath Rai
Instagram handle: batuknathrai
Don’t go by that name; Batuk, as he is fondly called by his over 31 thousand Instagram followers is a naughty beagle and a spoilt kid.
Living the thug life with his parents, television-actors Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai, Batuk Nath has the most beautiful pictures!
The four-legged pooch is frequently visited by actors from the Indian television industry and the chap has a picture with almost all of them on his social media.
Batuk scan be seen sleeping with dear mumma Kishwer on the bed and nibbling on her hair ties and even headphones! But one look at his innocent eyes, and you wouldn’t even think of scolding him for his naughty errands.
Not to miss, Batuks’s small house made of white wood!
3. Diana Chopra
Instagram handle: diariesofdiana
Who doesn’t know the heartwarming story of Priyanka Chopra and her little baby Diana, living (when together) in a swanky New York apartment?
While our desi girl is winning hearts globally, Diana does not seem very desi herself.
On her Instagram account, Diana can be seen chilling in a comfortable shark-shaped bed with food and water and a pink towel surround her sides.
There is also a video of a gruesome fight between Diana and a chew toy. Of course, our not-do-desi Diana won!
Diana, like her name suggest, lives a royal life with the cameras giving her equal attention, every time she accompanies mom Priyanka Chopra.
With her pink collar and cute antics, Diana is on top of our cutest celebrity pets’ list!
4. Monster Kundra
Instagram handle: monsterkundra
Monsty, as he is fondly called, is a fluff-ball in white and hints of brown!
This cute little ball of cotton is not much into pictures, but boy, his videos! Monster’s Instagram account has a lot of videos that will be hard to put down!
Moster is a spoilt son to dad Karan Kundra and mom Anusha Dandekar and features on their Instagram and Snapchat accounts too!
Cute Monster doesn’t look much of a brat to us, however his dad Karan thinks otherwise. Either way, Monster makes it to our best celebrity pets’ list for his adorable, hard to ignore self!
Instagram handle: sakpataudi
Masti is Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu’s Beagle. While the little star does not have an Instagram account of her own, she blesses mom Soha’s Instagram account quite frequently.
Contrary to all other celebrity pets, Masti seems a calm and composed star child.
You will find her sitting comfortable on Soha’s lap, looking into her eyes with true love and nothing else.
Did we tell you that Masti seems like a very smart and avid reader? You will find multiple images of one of our favorite celebrity pets sitting with a newspaper, lost in thoughts.
Our personal favorite, and the one picture that broke the internet has Masti sitting with mom Soha and little Taimur Ali Khan! Ah, so much cuteness in one frame!
Masti resembles her mother Soha and her royal demeanor; she is composed, very well behaved and royalty-like! All these trains make her one of our favorite celebrity pets!
Though Big B didn’t give the reason, his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father Krishnaraj Rai passed away in March after several days of illness.
“India thrash Australia in T20, Pink Panthers’ extraordinary convincing win, thunderstorm cancels shoot, 30 million on Twitter, and just for your information… no Diwali celebration this year,” Amitabh tweeted on Saturday night.
