While each patient’s plastic surgery needs are unique, many look to their favorite celebrities to help set their own cosmetic goals. In fact, a recent report from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) lists some commonly sought-after celebrity looks, citing a group of British plastic surgeons. According to the article, “Among patients who want body-transforming surgeries such as liposuction, body contouring and tummy tucks, the most sought-after celebrity looks include actress Jennifer Aniston and supermodel Gisele Bundchen. When it comes to nose jobs, doctors say many patients want theirs to resemble Natalie Portman’s or Emma Stone’s.”
Women aren’t the only ones who are turning to Hollywood to find the looks they want. The ASAPS article reports that, “Men often want their nose to look like Jude Law’s, their lips like Ashton Kutcher’s, their skin like Neil Patrick Harris’ and their body like Mark Wahlberg’s…” It’s clear now that celebrities influence the way we think about plastic surgery, but how much can we rely on the looks of others to establish our own goals? Read on to find out.
Keeping Realistic and Exploring Your Options
Although celebrity looks can be a starting point for establishing cosmetic goals, it’s important to keep your expectations realistic. We can’t all look like Jude Law or Jennifer Aniston, but for many, plastic surgery can make a world of difference. The most important thing to do is to learn what you can realistically expect from a cosmetic procedure. The way to do that is to schedule a consultation.
During your consultation, we will sit down to discuss your cosmetic goals and whether or not you’re a good candidate for plastic surgery. Together, we can determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. Also, we will be able to discuss any risks associated with plastic surgery as well as what you can expect on the day of your procedure. We’re here to guide you through the entire process, but you have to take the first step: schedule an appointment.
