Poor Madonna. The 53-year-old star once made headlines for her raunchy dance routines and high-fashion outfits. But she – and a growing number of women like her – was at the centre of a rather different and more serious debate last week. Or rather, her face was.

At this year’s British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) Annual Scientific Meeting, medics from all over the world met to discuss the problem she appears to have in common with other celebrities, from Kylie to Lulu – “pillow face”. And top of the agenda were the latest cosmetic surgery techniques being used to avoid it.
