“Cosmetic procedures should only be done if one is happy.” Says Dr. Alexis Kardis, one of the UK’s leading cosmetic surgeons. In recent times, we have borne witness to many celebrities who do some cosmetic makeovers. Some have become simply stunning while others have gone horribly wrong with their looks. Given there is a some level of risk and a lot of money involved in cosmetic procedures, the pursuit of the perfect look has not relented as far as the A-listers are concerned.
However, it is essential to question why some celebrities would opt to be more desirable than ever and to look like anyone but themselves. No one wants to be a old hag, and feel left out. When you examine the underlying reasons for the pursuit of perfection by visage-shifting there is often one recurring theme involved: pressure. Most celebs who have gone under the knife have cited a desire to look better because they feel the intense scrutiny of being under the limelight. Some have cited harsh criticism of their person as one of the main reason.
Cosmetic procedures in a way help alleviate the pressure somewhat. It is one way of making people feel comfortable in their own skin and boost self-esteem in some cases. Below are some of the widely talked about celebrities who get help to stay forever young and look really good.
This Australian rapper let the cat out of the bag that she had some cosmetic tweakery in an interview with Vogue April this year. Although cosmetic procedures are kept hush hush by celebrities, Iggy broke her silence amidst months of speculation that she had gone under the knife to enhance her boobs and derrière. She admitted to having breast augmentation surgery but vehemently denied to having work done on her behind.
Iggy came out and addressed the white elephant in the room saying that she did not like keeping secrets about those procedures.
However, this revelation has not had an adverse effect on her legion of followers who congratulated her on being open about her cosmetic procedure.
After gaining critical acclaim for her role in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction’, Uma Thurman continues to dazzle on and off camera.
At a screen party for NBC new series, The Slap, Uma Thurman astounded the public with a new look that they had not really seen before. She had smooth skin that had the reddest shade of lipstick. This new look further fuelled speculation that she had had some work done on her.
Regardless of whether it is true or not, this seasoned 44-year-old actress will continue to wow us with her performances on the big screen.
At only 17, Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner tribe has caught everyone by surprise by unveiling her new look, after cosmetic surgery of course, to the world.
She had a brow lift, upper eyelid surgery, chin implant, jaw reshaping surgery, breast augmentation surgery and butt enhancement surgery.
Her main reason for having all these procedures at such a young age was that she needed to look as hot as her siblings with whom she was juxtaposed and harshly critiqued with. After many years of feeling left out, she said that she felt that for the first time she belonged.
