For all the denial and the conflicting reports, Hollywood certainly looks a lot different from the rest of the planet. I imagine that Botox and filler technicians working in Los Angeles are making better livings than most A-list celebrities.
Personally, I see nothing wrong with a little plastic surgery. I’ve never had anything done but I haven’t ruled it out either. I’m sure at some point I’ll look in the mirror and want to do something about my frown lines and my crow’s feet— it just hasn’t happened yet. When that time comes, if I have the disposable income (my daughter can pay her own way through college, right?) or if I can convince my insurance company that I need it for medical purposes (my sagging eyelids are blocking my peripheral vision!), I’ll lay down on that table and let the good doctor go to work.
One thing, I’ve noticed, is that the best plastic surgeries are the ones that don’t veer to far from what God intended. A shave from the nose, a small lift around the eyes, a slight breast augmentation. The things that make you think— wow, Gwyneth Paltrow looks awesome! But you can’t quite put your finger on why.
I also suspect (because I know someone whose doctor convinced her to do this), that many celebrities get face lifts way before the general public thinks they need one. That way, as the person ages, the skin remains a lot tighter than it would naturally and nobody is the wiser. (If you’re curious, that person did this about ten years ago and while I thought she had been sold a bill of goods at the time, she now looks fantastic for her age without any telltale signs of surgery.)
Below are some examples of celebrities who must have excellent plastic surgeons:
