Television, movie, and music stars have to look great on camera, so some of the best surgeons in the world are based in California beautifying today's hottest celebrities. So, what are some of the most popular plastic surgery procedures amongst celebrities?

1. Botox

Botox injections work to smooth out wrinkles, forehead lines, frown lines, and other visible signs of aging in the patient's face. Men and women in Hollywood such as Jennifer Aniston, Simon Cowell, and Gwyneth Paltrow have all publicly admitted to using Botox.

2. Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures amongst women throughout the United States. Saline or silicone implants can work to reshape and add volume to the breasts. Well known celebrities who have been rumored to have gotten a breast augmentation procedure include Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, and Nicole Kidman.

3. Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, or nose job procedure is very popular for all kinds of people. This procedure works to reshape the nose, which can completely transform the appearance of the patient's face. This procedure can reshape the nasal tip, remove a hump, or straighten the nose. Celebrities who have had this procedure include Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox.

4. Liposuction

Another very popular plastic surgery procedure, liposuction can remove pockets of fat from stubborn areas of the body. While diets and exercise are the best way for celebrities and everyone else to get into shape, sometimes some areas of the body can be more problematic when it comes to losing weight and staying trim. Liposuction removes fat deposits in the body, allowing the patient to contour his or her body to achieve the desired look. Celebrities who have gotten liposuction include Jessica Alba, Beyoncé, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Demi Moore.
