A few days after she was shot, the first lady wore her own face-lift, the second after she received a facial transplant.
She also added an extra cheekbone.
“I’m not just doing the same thing every day,” Mrs. Clinton told ABC News.
“It’s important to get your face right, because people can see through it.”
The new look has been praised by experts and a growing number of women are embracing it.
The new face lift is a popular and sometimes overlooked facial enhancement.
The surgeon who performed Mrs. Bush’s transplant was a renowned face-replacement surgeon in Boston who has performed more than 10,000 face transplants.
The procedure, which takes about an hour, is also called a bioprosthetic facial reconstruction.
It’s also sometimes called a “coggery” because it involves attaching a metal rod to the patient’s face.
“People have been doing this for years, and it’s a pretty popular procedure,” Dr. Stephen Mathers, director of the University of California, San Francisco, Center for Plastic Surgery, told ABCNews.
“But we’ve seen so much improvement in the last two years that it’s becoming a more common surgery.”
Dr. Matherss said the new procedure also improves facial hair.
“The scalp needs to be groomed to look like the skin that it was created with,” he said.
“And you get a better look at the facial hair and it looks more natural.”
Another recent study from Boston University found that the average American woman has more than three years of hair left in her face after her facial surgery, and that it can take as long as 15 years to fully restore her facial appearance.
The study, which included more than 5,000 women, said women with facial reconstructive surgery were more likely to have facial hair regrown, and to be more likely than women without facial reconstructions to have a more defined nose and more prominent cheekbones.
The National Association of Facial Plastic Surgeons has said that the new facial lift and the more pronounced facial shape is a sign of recovery.
“You can see that her face is more natural, and she’s more able to see through the implants,” Dr, Michael Capp, the association’s medical director, told CBS News.
A more pronounced nose and cheekbones are seen as a sign that a person is recovering after an operation.
“In this instance, that was the biggest difference,” Dr Capp said.
In recent years, the number of face transplanted procedures has increased, particularly in the past few years, according to a 2016 report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeon.
About 25,000 to 35,000 people a year are now on the waiting list for face transplant surgery, which usually requires a three- to four-week process that includes the surgery and other physical and psychological procedures.
It usually involves the removal of the donor’s facial hair, and then the patient has the surgery done to remove their own facial hair from their face, typically to improve their appearance.
Dr. Capp says the new procedures are a good start for patients who are ready to go home to their families and begin to recover.
“As a cosmetic surgeon, I think that this is the first time that we have seen a large percentage of the people who are in that waiting list,” he told ABCNEWS.
“A lot of people have to wait until they’re in their late 20s to have the procedure done.
So I think this is a really good first step.”
Dr Matherson said he believes there is more work to be done to improve the cosmetic face lift and improve facial hair to create a more natural look.
“There are people out there who are really looking for that first, and a good first, step is to start looking for it,” he added.
