Almost every day, you’ll hear about a celebrity’s shocking face or body transformation. Netizens flood social media with #plastic surgery. When was the last time you didn’t wake up to some scandalous news on the internet? Sometimes the changes are subtler. Only years later, when the before and after images get juxtaposed, you see the difference. And sometimes, it’s the most glaring change. Cosmetic dentistry did wonders for Tom Cruise. No one can forget his teeth in The Outsiders, where the front one is chipped and yellowing.
The looks are a part of the brand of celebrities. So, everything needs to be immaculate. After all, how would the audience fawn over them? When your face is constantly blasting the big and small screens, you are bound to feel a little self-conscious if something’s not right. Therefore, it’s no surprise that celebrities choose to go under the knife. Plastic surgery and Hollywood go hand in hand.
Not everyone is open to admitting their plastic surgery. However, some proudly do so. Let us begin with the elephant in the room…the Kardashians. The way they look has drastically changed over the years. Botox, fillers, BBL, rhinoplasty, facelift, breast augmentation, fox eye, whatever it is, you name it, and the Kardashians would probably be familiar with it. They have practically become the poster girls for plastic surgery.
It can’t exactly be said how much they’ve spent. But think of all the maintenance costs in tens of thousands of dollars and the surgeries included, you’d have a figure beyond your wildest imaginations.
However, they’re not all. Iggy Azalea has reportedly spent a fortune on her boobs and nose. Next up, Dolly Parton has got work done on her face and body through fillers, Botox, liposuction, and breast augmentation. Then we have the beloved Cher, who had a facelift, neck lift, rhinoplasty, and boob job.
When in Hollywood, you’ve got to have the Hollywood smile. That means no gaps between the teeth. Nothing should be chipped, broken, black, or yellow. Moreover, having a gummy smile may also be irking to some. Many don’t like Candice Swanepoel’s gummy smile. She’s Victoria’s Secret model, though so, let people say what they want to say!
Of the most popular stars who had work done to their teeth for a dazzling smile, there’s Tom Cruise, Zac Effron, Ben Affleck, Emma Watson, Hilary Duff, George Clooney, and Miley Cyrus. Come award season, and almost everyone gets their teeth whitened for that red carpet look. So, that makes for a very long list!
That’s what frames your face, and it can make or break your overall look. And if you are losing patches of hair or going bald, the camera will shine a light on it. Not just that, but your peers might also end up making fun of you. It’s not fair, but when has anything been in Hollywood? Jimmy Carr, Gordon Ramsay, Rob Brydon, Bobby Norris, and Simon Cowell all had a hair transplant. Some had them done for tens of thousands of pounds.
It’s just the way of the stars. Everything has to be in the right place for them not to get any flak for their looks. And there’s the pressure to stay ever-young and beautiful, especially on women. That may explain the popularity of plastic surgery among celebs.
