Celebrities and Plastic Surgery
Celebrities and plastic surgery have long gone hand-in-hand. This is because celebrities are expected to maintain a beautiful, youthful appearance despite their age, as a part of keeping up their celebrity status. It is also most likely due to the fact that celebrities are so sharply critiqued by the media and the public about their appearances. Whatever the reason, many celebrities have undergone some type of plastic surgery. However, some are more likely to admit it than others. Joan Rivers was the first to admit that she had undergone many plastic surgery procedures and was a big proponent of plastic surgery. Other celebrities like Demi Moore, Madonna and Renée Zellweger continue to deny that they have had plastic surgery, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
The bottom line is that plastic surgery is a very personal and private issue. Most people would rather keep this information to themselves and are not seeking plastic surgery to dramatically alter their appearances. In contrast, most individuals who seek plastic surgery are simply seeking a more youthful and rested version of themselves. For this reason, many plastic surgery practices around the United States are marketing “natural results.” The goal of this type of treatment is for people to notice a marked improvement in your appearance without being able to pinpoint exactly what has changed. Achieving this goal requires a tremendous amount of skill and experience on the part of the plastic surgeon.
If you are looking for “natural results,” it is vitally important to pick the right plastic surgeon. You can start by looking for a board-certified plastic surgeon. You will also want to find a plastic surgeon with a significant amount of experience performing the particular procedure or procedures you are seeking. Viewing before-and-after pictures of actual patients who have undergone the same procedure or procedures is vital in the selection process. You will also want to schedule a consultation with that surgeon, prior to scheduling surgery. During your consultation, you can get a feel for the surgeon and his or her bedside manner and overall philosophy on plastic surgery. Lastly, if possible, talk to an actual patient who has worked with this particular plastic surgeon to find out about his or her experience.
Advances in plastic surgery now make it possible for virtually everyone to achieve a more attractive and youthful appearance. However, plastic surgery is not for everyone. It should be reserved for individuals who have generally good self-esteem and realistic expectations about their results.
