Celeb Cosmetic Surgery - Who Has Had What Done?

Plastic surgeon Roy Kim, MD is a specialist in aesthetic plastic surgery, including breast and body sculpting.

You be the judge: Are the hateful judgers growing armpit hair and skipping the makeup, or just kidding themselves about the definition of “natural”?

From where I’m standing the most confident, honest, authentic women in Hollywood get a little work done, own it, and proceed with the real joys in life.

Ever notice how only the most beautiful of Hollywood stars denounce cosmetic surgery? 

There’s no denying that in beauty (as in height and foot size), some people hit the jackpot. Others, candidly, are average, ugly and everything in between. 

Before you skewer me for insensitivity, know that I am in no way assigning human value based upon looks. I leave that to pop culture.  I’m not even defining who is in which category. (I happen to love the way large distinctive noses lend personality to a face, and that some women have a frame beautifully suited to small breasts.) I’m merely observing that we all look unique, visually appreciate different characteristics, and have been dazzled for thousands of years by certain rare and prized features.

In the past, the lucky winners of nature’s lottery, enjoyed a life of special treatment. 

But now that many beauty standards are attainable by the formerly average, it’s getting a bit catty up there on Mt. Olympus. 

The beautiful don’t take kindly to sharing the spotlight.

Celebrity aesthetic treatment

Let’s examine why it matters, to begin with, whether someone’s smooth skin is the result of youth, nature, creams, injections or surgery. 

If a woman looks lovely, why not just enjoy the loveliness and skip the judgment? Why must the media characterize celebrities as crazy, in proportion to how much surgery they’ve admitted to?

This dishonest moral superiority and fake outrage over cosmetic procedures do nothing to keep Hollywood ageing naturally, and the unnecessary pressure and fixation actually lead to closeted vanity obsessions.

Again, why is it important to the consumer whether a star’s good looks are the result of sunscreen, genetics, or a facelift? Answer: Our society wants to live in a dream world.

We (and I use that term loosely, as I reject this view) are a group of raving lunatics, irrationally soothed by the fairy tale that our on-screen heroes are naturally ageless.

Plus, it’s fun to cut down on those who make different personal choices than you. It feels so good to be superior.

Yet, despite each famous beauty claiming ignorance of Botox (“BoTEX? BoTAX? Nope, never heard of it.”) cosmetic surgery is not a growing industry because everyone hates it, and only the emotionally unstable choose it. 

Nay; cosmetic surgery flourishes because, for many, it’s awesome. 

Nobody who has made the choice to undergo cosmetic surgery will tell you it solved all their problems. 

But more often than not, a patient will tell you how it has been a boost to their self-image, confidence, and possibly their marriage. Very often will patients who suffered severe burns, scars or deformities tell you that cosmetic surgery was a life-changing event. But don’t tell that to the masses, the last thing we need is widespread understanding and respect for others.
