Some Hollywood actors and reality TV stars – hello, Real Housewives! – those who have been given the knife are proud of it and are happy to celebrate it. Others simply do not want to perpetuate the stigma of shame that can come from getting aesthetic procedures and see no sense in keeping them secret. Then, of course, in cases such as Heidi Montag’s 10 procedures in one day, the before and after photos would have made denial impossible!
Sometimes a little pinch / fold or some facial treatments can help with aging; but other celebrities have talked about getting nose jobs at a young age or breast augmentations or reductions that have helped with everything from self-confidence to pain relief. In other cases, the reason is purely aesthetic – liposuction for better abs for the best beach body possible; injections for fuller lips; chin implants for a balanced look. And in other cases, stars such as TV journalist Julie Chen were told that changing their positions would help their career.
Sometimes stars admit that they have gone too far with face lifts or have nightmares related to plastic surgery. Montag, for example, had developed health problems from her surgery and had changed her mind about beauty ideal. After she had reversed some of her improvements by another plastic surgeon, she told us in 2013 that she had even thought about not doing that. “I just didn’t want to go back under surgery because it was so traumatic and something I never – I’m so sick of being a surgical girl. It was the last thing I wanted to do: bring it all back; it’s just been such a nightmare in my life, “she said. But she realized she had to do it: “I thought,” Well, it’s not really a choice, because now it’s affecting my health. “
Jillian Michaels, on the other hand, has talked about the pleasure of getting a nose job at the age of 16. “And I’ll be honest,” she said in 2015, “it has changed my life.”

In May 2019, the Jersey Shore star revealed that he had undergone liposuction to improve his six-pack after welcoming his daughter Ariana the year before. “I’ve always been an enthusiastic workout and I’ve always been in shape, but it also takes a lot of effort to stay in shape,” he said in a video about the show The Doctors. “A year ago my life had changed completely. I had a little girl. She is just like my guardian angel, and now I can’t spend two to three hours every day in the gym like in the past.” Christopher Khorsandi described the procedure as “laser high-definition abdominal liposuction.” Result? “We will be able to fully define that area between each of his abs so that he will have a six-pack for many, many years to come,” the pro noted.
From a nose job to a chin implant to Botox, the real housewives of the Orange County star have never been shy about the many facials she has received over the years. In July 2018, Gunvalson told Us Weekly that the eyelid corpharoplasty and face lift she had just received would be her final procedures. “Put a fork in it, I’m done!” She said. The reality star also had many of her fillers removed at the same time. “I had a lot of fillers in my face and I no longer felt it was me,” she told us. “I had too many doctors, too many different times to say,” Let’s do this, let’s do that, let’s fill it in here, let’s do Voluma, let’s do Sculptra, “and by the time I finished, looked I in the mirror and looked “I don’t even look like myself.” “
She has to fill her with fillers! “You have no idea because it’s gradual until you go,” Oh, s. This doesn’t look good. ” And it’s worse on photos than in real life, “the Friends alum told New Beauty Magazine in 2017.” I’ve had all my fillers dissolved. I’m as natural as I can be. I feel better because I’m on look like myself. I think I now look more like the person I was. I hope I do it. “
In July 2016, the beauty maven finally admitted that she relied on fillers to plump her pout. Asked by her sister Kim Kardashian in an interview with Allure if she had beauty flaws, Jenner replied: “Well, I certainly made my lips a bit too big at one point.” After her big sister agreed, Jenner continued, “I was excited and felt that I had to do a lot. And then you had something like,” Kylie, you have to relax. ” And then I had to go back and have it fixed, and it was a crazy process. Thank goodness I didn’t end up on Botched. “
“I am two years older than my father when he died,” Fonda told The Guardian in 2015 about her actor father Henry, who played in the On Golden Pond in 1981. “Katharine Hepburn was three years younger than I am now when she made that movie People looked older then. I wish I was brave enough not to do plastic surgery, but I think I bought myself a decade. “
In 2015, the rapper, who had already told that she had had a breast augmentation, confirmed to Seventeen that she had received a nose job. “I don’t deny it, denying it is lame,” she told me. “I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change in yourself, that’s why I talked about the changes I made, like with my breasts.” But she also noted that choosing an operation is not easy way. “Plastic surgery is an emotional journey,” noted the Grammy winner. “It is not easy to live with your flaws and to accept yourself – and it is not an easy achievement to change yourself. Regardless, it is a difficult journey. There are things that I did not like about myself that I have changed by. There are other things that I do not like but that I have learned to accept. “
The Modern Family star received a breast reduction at the age of 17, which she says has eased back pain and increased her self-confidence. “On [red carpets] I said to myself:” You have to do your best to look confident and stand up, and make yourself look as good as possible in these photos, “because everyone is going to see them,” she told Glamor. “I seemed absolutely certain, I’m an actress, that’s what we do, but I didn’t feel so happy inside.”
The actress relies on diet and exercise rather than surgeons to maintain her eternal youthful appearance. “I tried and hated Botox once,” she told ET in 2014. “It was just the worst thing ever.” But she made it clear that she is not against all improvements, admitting that she had undergone breast augmentation surgery to “replace what the children ate.”
The journalist revealed about The Talk in 2013 that, after receiving racist feedback from a boss at the age of 25, she had to undergo surgery to make her ‘Asian eyes’ look bigger. “I worked as a local news reporter in Dayton, Ohio,” said the Sino-American television personality. “I asked my news director during the vacation:” If anchors want to take vacation, can I fill in? “And he said,” You’ll never sit on this anchor tableau because you’re Chinese. ” She continued: “He said,” Let’s be honest, Julie, how relatable are you with our community? How big is an Asian community in Dayton? “Moreover, because of your origins, because of your Asian eyes, you sometimes notice that when you sit on camera and you interview someone, you look uninterested, you get bored. “” She received similar feedback while searching for an agent, and decided to have an eye procedure. Although she was in conflict with her decision at the time, the ambitious star has no regrets. “No one is more proud of being Chinese than I am,” she said after her revelation. “Every decision I’ve made … it has taken [me] to where we are now, and I won’t look back.”
Rowland took the decision to take a breast augmentation very seriously. “I wanted to get breast implants when I was 18, but my mother and Beyoncé’s mother told me to think about it first,” Destiny’s Child magazine told Shape magazine in 2013. “I took their advice and waited ten years.” Even once she decided, she went on carefully. “When I felt ready, I tried on padded bras and walked around to see what it would feel like,” she added. “You have to know what you get, it doesn’t matter what type of operation it is.”
The Hills star underwent 10 procedures on 10 May 2009, including breast implants to take her to an F-cup, an eyebrow lift, a nose job update, lipo on her stomach and thighs and a butt-augmentation, and shared the news and photos in March 2010. Three years later she had major regrets and health problems. “I just didn’t know what I really signed up for,” the reality star told us in 2013, after part of the work was reversed. “It just sounds so unimportant if you’re a surgeon who describes so much of it, such as:” OK, well, a little bit of that, a little bit of that. “You are not told about the recovery time and the mental stress it will attract you, and the long term.”
The star has never explicitly confirmed the nose job she probably had in the spring of 2006. She more or less told Us Weekly in the following years that her bridge had indeed been trimmed surgically. “As long as people have only two eyes,” Simpson told us, “you probably know the answer.”
