Some of us are aware of the fact that the celebrities we admire on the red carpet did not always look that good. Some probably looked amazing to start with, but in point of fact, all, bar none, are affected by the passage of time, gravity and unhealthy lifestyle choices and these factors cause changes in the shape and form of our bodies that may not conform to the prevailing standards of beauty. Being famous is sometimes synonymous with being a repeat client of a plastic surgeon. Nowadays it is a well-known fact that many celebrities and A-list personalities have achieved their spectacular looks with the help of plastic surgeons.
Some of the celebrities required the help of plastic surgery to correct some imperfections that were significantly impacting on their self-image, while others go to a plastic surgeon to improve certain features of their face or body through plastic surgery procedures.
Celebrities and plastic surgery
Being a celebrity today can mean long hours spent in surgery to correct physical imperfections on bodies or faces. Some celebrities went through several major changes over the years that it is difficult to even remember how they looked like before. Some viewed plastic surgery as a tool to improve their looks and made their dreams come true. On the other hand, others, who engage in a futile quest for perfection and eternal youth and beauty, end up victims of grotesquely botched surgeries. We see both types of celebrities on the pages of the glossy magazines and TV shows all the time.
Plastic surgery enhanced the appearance of some celebrities who became icons of beauty for all of us. Fuller lips, little noses, bigger breasts, buttocks with an impressive projection are the beneficial results of plastic surgery that never fail to amaze and surprise us.
Here are top 3 plastic surgery interventions preferred by celebrities:
1. Breast augmentation with implants
The breasts are one of the most important symbols of femininity and rare were the instances when we had a feminine sex symbol with small breasts. Equating women and beauty with big, voluptuous breasts began in the Renaissance age. Big was beautiful. Today, the perfect bust would make that must-have designer dress look even more amazing. It goes without saying that not all of our modern celebrities were gifted with big breasts by Mother Nature. This is probably the reason why breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular plastic surgery interventions among celebrities.
There’s also this irrepressible obsession with constructed image and addiction to beauty. It seems most, if not, all women want to be ravishingly beautiful, which leads to constant preoccupation with the appearance of their bodies. The key element that spells a perfect body is its proportions. This means that the curves of the body should be in perfect harmony to achieve that perfect image. Based on today’s predictors of what is beautiful, even if you have curvaceous buttocks but if you have flat chest, the perception will still not be flattering. Balance, harmony, symmetry are the natural metrics of beauty.
Celebrities are no different from the average Jane. Probably, they also don’t like what they see in the mirror every day. Probably, they also struggled to find that perfect bra that fits or one that creates the illusion of bigger breasts. Just like the average Jane, they probably moan over the shape of their breasts. There are women who complain about not being able to find clothes that fit their bodies and women who are self- conscious about undressing in front of a partner. There is also that tinge of envy at seeing other women flaunting a generous cleavage.
The good news is that there is a solution! Breast augmentation with silicone implants can improve the size, shape, projection and position of your breasts, just like it helped so many celebrities before you.
Achieving shapely, perky, beautifully contoured breasts was never easier and as affordable than it is today. This procedure has been performed for more than half a decade now. Great strides in technology have immensely improved the safety and durability of the silicone implants and the intervention is considered very safe.
How is the procedure performed?
It all starts with an initial consultation with the plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will assess whether you are a good candidate for the desired procedure. During this meeting, you will also choose, with the guidance of your surgeon, the type and size of implants most suitable for your particular case. The plastic surgeon will explain in detail the operative plan and the pre and post- operative indications.
The intervention is mostly performed under general anesthesia and, under normal conditions, it lasts for less than two hours. The breast implants will be placed under the mammary gland or the pectoral muscle. The incisions will be around the inframammary fold, the areolas or at the axillas to minimize visibility of scars.
You can see the impressive results achieved after the breast augmentation among many celebrities and this is probably one of the reasons why this is highly popular.
2. Buttocks augmentation with implants
It appears there are many women who want the bigger, fuller, rounder butt strutted by so many celebrities all over the magazines and reality TV shows. No wonder that there is a huge increase in demand for buttock enhancement procedures. Most of the “celebrity buttocks” we see on TV are handiworks of the experienced and highly talented hands of a plastic surgeon.
How is the intervention performed?
The butt implants are quite similar to the breast implants; only their consistency is different. The incisions for the buttock augmentation are usually made in the fold in between the butt cheeks. Even if the incisions take longer to heal when positioned there, it is preferred because the scars are perfectly hidden in the natural folds of the body and barely visible.
After the butt augmentation procedure and during the recovery process, the patient is required to wear a compression girdle for a given period of time. Sitting on the buttocks must also be avoided for a period to be specified by your plastic surgeon.
You have probably seen the dramatic changes in weight among celebrities, which appear to happen in a blink. More often than not, that’s thanks to the liposuction procedure. Liposuction is a procedure that is extremely in demand among celebrities and regular people. With the help of liposuction, we can sculpt all areas of the body, correct imperfections and get rid of the pockets of fat that are resistant to diets and exercises.
It bears pointing out that liposuction is not a substitute for healthy eating and exercising regularly. It is definitely not a weight loss method.
How is liposuction performed?
Liposuction can take about one to three hours, depending on the areas that need to be treated. When multiple areas are targeted, the procedure can take longer. To avoid unnecessary complications, there is a limit to the amount of fat that can be extracted in one liposuction session. Your plastic surgeon will also avoid performing liposuction in more than two areas in one session to avoid protracted recovery.
During liposuction, a tumescent solution is injected into the areas to be treated. After this, a cannula connected to a suctioning device will be inserted under the skin through small incisions. The plastic surgeon will perform a back and forth motion to dislodge the fat so it can be suctioned out of the body.
Liposuction delivers impressive results for all types of patients, but it has one important condition, to wit: good skin elasticity and muscle tone to prevent contour irregularities after the intervention.
Take a look at some of the modern day celebrities and it is obvious that their spectacular figure is a result of plastic surgery interventions.
The desire to correct imperfections, erase the visible signs of aging as well as improve themselves and enhance the appearance of certain areas such as the breasts and buttocks has made a number of celebrities turn to plastic surgery.
The most common plastic surgery interventions preferred by the celebrities are breast augmentation with silicone implants, buttocks augmentation with implants and liposuction.
Celebrity or not, beauty, or its absence thereof, affects a person’s self- esteem and confidence. Plastic surgery can help maintain your impeccable look and as a result, considerably boost your self- confidence.
