When standing in line at the grocery store or browsing news on your favorite smartphone app, you may have seen headlines about people who’ve had plastic surgery to look like their favorite celebrities. Some women have had surgery to achieve Kim Kardashian’s voluptuous curves, while others have sought injections to mirror Angelina Jolie’s full, plump lips.
Just like sharing photos of a desired hairstyle with your stylist is helpful at achieving your ideal look, sharing a celebrity’s photo with your plastic surgeon can be just as helpful. But is it acceptable to use plastic surgery to look more like your favorite celebrity in his or her entirety?
Why you should really seek plastic surgery
Plastic surgery is a specialty dedicated to the enhancement of the face and body, and is meant to improve your physical appearance based on your anatomy and desires. For instance, women with smaller breasts may choose to have breast augmentation to increase their breast size, while those who battle with loose, excess skin or pockets of stubborn fat may opt for slimming procedures such as tummy tuck surgery or liposuction.
In short, plastic surgery is intended to improve your existing physique and emphasize your best assets without completely changing your overall look and identity. Plastic surgery can also help boost your confidence and self-esteem, and make you feel better about yourself.
Discussing your ideal look with plastic surgeons
Every plastic surgery practice has its own philosophy and mission when it comes to cosmetic procedures. If you want to look more like a specific celebrity through plastic surgery, the best thing you can do is schedule a consultation with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who will listen to your story and goals, and discuss whether the look you desire can be achieved.
At Monarch Plastic Surgery, patient education is an important part of the journey. In most cases, the natural shape and physique you were born with can only be altered to a certain extent, meaning it could be difficult for some individuals to achieve the looks of a specific celebrity. However, we can answer any and all questions you have about surgery, and determine whether the outcome will help you feel better about your body, and about yourself as a person.
During your consultation, our doctors and nurses will make recommendations for plastic surgery based on your body type and desires. We also encourage you to bring along a friend or family member for support, especially if you and/or your partner have concerns about whether plastic surgery can help.
