The Hollywood Makeover? Celebrity Plastic Surgery Procedures

Celebrities who reach the ‘most beautiful people’ list each year have specific features that make them more attractive than most of us; high cheekbones, strong facial contours and perfect body proportions come together to create the Hollywood ideal.   

While our media-driven society sets some of the beauty rules, true beauty really is based on science. Psychologists and scientists have published countless studies that suggest certain features of the face elicit a more positive response in most people, highlighting the role of symmetrical, balanced features in gauging physical attractiveness in another person. For centuries, science has been telling us that some characteristics and features are preferred over others (Source:

Still, most people aren’t born with the ideal figure and the youthful features that separate the good looking from the exceptionally beautiful; plastic and cosmetic surgeons can help many achieve near-perfect looks with the right procedure. From facial liposuction to rhinoplasty, here are the top five procedures that may help you achieve a Hollywood-inspired look:  

Facial Liposuction to Improve Facial Contours

Extra fat around the chin, neck and lower cheeks can add years to your appearance, and even make you look overweight in pictures. Facial liposuction treatments can get rid of excess tissue under the chin and improve facial contours for a more chiseled look; liposuction of the face can also emphasize cheekbones and create more balance for the neck and facial areas.   

Rhinoplasty for the Perfect Nose

The ideal nose doesn’t really exist, but is ‘is in harmony with other favorable features of your face’ say experts at The nose must be balanced with the size of the forehead, the upper lip, and have the right angle and length from the side profile. Rhinoplasty procedures can remove lumps or asymmetrical nose shapes, and even reduce the size of the nostrils if needed.  

Chin Implants for the Chiseled Jaw

A flat and wide chin can be a tell-tale sign of aging, especially for women.  A well-defined chin and jawline are essential for looking  young, and chin implants can help restructure the lower face for a more attractive look. Chin implants and chin surgery can also correct an asymmetrical chin to provide a more sculpted and balanced look.  

Dermal Fillers to Smooth Out Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can easily add years to your appearance, but injectable fillers such as BOTOX, Restylane, Juvederm and Artefill can help fill out grooves and lines on the face for a more youthful appearance. Injectables can be used to plump up lips, fill out hollowed cheeks and create a more supple, sculpted look. Dermal fillers can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments to further enhance their effects, and most provide instant results.  

Eyelid Surgery for Youthful-Looking Eyes

Droopy eyelids and sagging skin under the eyes can make you look tired, sad or much older than your real age. Eyelid lift surgery can help get rid of excess skin and wrinkles above and below the eyes, creating a rejuvenating effect for the upper face.
