Cosmetic surgery in Hollywood is rife.
Pretty much everyone is getting it done. There are many celebrities who have clearly had procedures, yet still deny the fact they’ve had work done. They often pretend and attribute their flawless complexion and wrinkle-free appearance to taking care of their aging skin. We didn’t come down in the last shower and it’s pretty easy these days to spot those who’ve had cosmetic surgery. But, considering we’ve all seen the surgery fails, is there anyone in Hollywood who actually looks better for having gone under the knife? Well, I think so.
Now that I’m getting older, I look at my skin each morning wishing away the crow’s feet and permanent frown lines in the middle of my forehead. I wonder if in fact having some kind of skin rejuvenation treatment is actually worth it. Upon further investigation, I believe that maybe it is something to consider, especially if you’d like to improve the overall freshness of your face or you just down right refuse to age gracefully. Here’s a few comparisons between both the best and the worst of Hollywood’s cosmetic surgery obsession.
Post children, my breasts look similar to empty bags of skin attached to my chest. When I lay on my back, they slide underneath my armpits rendering me boobless. I just want to be able to wear a strapless dress and have my norks stay closer to my neck instead of my belly button for a change, or enjoy a good amount of cleavage in a low cut top without my nipples pointing toward the floor. Sadly, unless I get a breast augmentation, this will never be the case, but I’d certainly prefer one of the below as opposed to the other. Not every procedure will achieve the look you’re actually after.
1. Boob Job
Best: Salma Hayek
On my search for the best boob job, I couldn’t go past Salma Hayek. This woman was already the epitome of stunning in my eyes. But, her increased breast size certainly did add a little spice to her already gorgeously infamous curves. If you haven’t watched ‘From Dusk to Dawn’, I strongly suggest you do. This woman can dance with a python in ways that evoke some serious sexual tension making even the most heterosexual woman question her sexuality.
Worst: Tori Spelling
Worst on my list of breast implants would have to be Tori Spelling. I’ve never found her an attractive woman and was my least favourite ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ actress. She’s gone on to star in her own reality TV series which wasn’t overly interesting. That didn’t stop her however, from getting a breast augmentation procedure of epic fail proportions. Her bizarre looking cleavage and oversized breasts actually look painfully attached to her tiny frame. She seems nearly alien-like and it certainly doesn’t scream natural.
2. Lip Filler
Best: Kylie Jenner
Celebrities tend to go OTT on cosmetic surgery and quite often, it results in an unnatural expression. It’s most noticeable when celebs have lip fillers resulting in a permanent duck face pout. It looks more like they’ve been stung by a wasp instead of the stunning fuller luscious lip enhancement they were going for. There are a few exceptions to the rule and I believe Kylie Jenner is one of them.
Although famous for literally no reason, Kylie Jenner as part of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has made her way through reality TV star ranks. She’s been in the spotlight for all of her awkward teenage years and endured puberty in the public eye. However, she went from your average looking adolescent to a striking young woman; enhanced lips and all. Apparently, Kylie Jenner decided to get fillers at 15 after being teased by a boy for having small lips. Although I certainly don’t condone teenagers undergoing cosmetic surgery, I do think the result Kylie was after was achieved. See for yourself.
Worst: Nikki Cox
Best: Nicole Kidman
My best botox pick would have to be our very own Nicole Kidman. A stunning example of Australia’s tall and gorgeous, she’s always achieved fairly natural Botox enhancement. We all know she indulges in botox to keep her looking younger and fresher and I certainly don’t mind at all. The woman is timeless in her flawless elegance and I absolutely love the fact the as she ages, she continues to always look her best.
Worst: Renee Zellweger
In comparison, you have Renee Zellweger. Although I love the Bridgette Jones series of movies, I’m actually not a huge fan. To me her botox use is totally OTT, and instead of appearing ageless, it’s in fact made her look older. To achieve a natural look with botox, you still need to be able to move your face. This to me, is botox abuse and wouldn’t be inclined to engage her surgeon for any further procedures.
