7 in 10 Young Women Would Go Under the Knife and Look Like Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and many other high-profile celebrities often serve as inspiration for many plastic surgery procedures, including liposuction, breast implants and butt implants. Hollywood stars have been criticized for portraying an unrealistic body image and for influencing many young women to become obsessed with their looks. Results of a recent survey from More! Magazine confirm that many women are obsessed enough about achieving the “perfect” body because most would go under the knife.

More! Magazine surveyed 1,150 women and found that plastic surgery is now considered pretty “normal” for most, and that young women are more comfortable with getting a procedure to fix their perceived imperfections and achieve the Hollywood ideal.

If you’ve been thinking about having plastic surgery, set up a consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your options. Take a look at some plastic surgery before and after photos to see examples of successful outcomes with today’s most popular procedures. Looking at before and after photos can help you set some realistic expectations about your results.

Young Women Likely to Have Plastic Surgery

According to the results of the More! Magazine survey, 61 percent said they had a right to cosmetic procedures if they were insecure about the way they looked, and 49 percent have already planned to have work done in the near future.

More! Magazine’s editor Chantelle Horton says, “The results show a worrying trend towards young women becoming obsessed with creating the 'perfect' body image. These findings show that celebrities like Katie Price, Heidi Montag and Chloe Sims, who have all spoken openly about going under the knife, have normalized surgery and made it seem a safe and aspirational thing to do. It is interesting to see how many young women aspire to cosmetic surgery when our most successful cover stars here at More! are girls like Jessie J, Kim Kardashian, Frankie Sandford and Katy Perry, who all have a range of different bodies - and are all natural.”

Popular Celebrity-Inspired Plastic Surgery Procedures

Kim Kardashian and Pippa Middleton are just two celebrities who have sparked a growing trend for butt implants, but there are also a number of other celebrities who serve as the “ideal” for many patients heading to the plastic surgeon’s office. Some of the most-coveted procedures and cosmetic enhancements include lip augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, rhinoplasty and butt lifts.

Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area to find out if you would be a good candidate for a tummy tuck, breast implants, liposuction or another celebrity-inspired procedure.
