Celebrities Weigh In on Manhattan Plastic Surgery

Andrew | April 17, 2013 | Posted in Body, Skin Care

When it comes to Manhattan plastic surgery, few know the ropes like celebrities who depend on their appearance for successful careers. Many Hollywood stars bring their experiences to a recent Marie Claire report and other news publications, to share their highs and lows of cosmetic procedures. If you are considering Botox injections in NYC or a procedure that promises more dramatic results, listening to what the celebrities have to say may help you determine which cosmetic procedure might be the best option for you.

Those in favor of cosmetic surgery

Numerous stars have admitted to plastic surgery, many boasting excellent results. Australian superstar Kylie Minogue told Marie Claire that she doesn’t begrudge anyone the ability to “look their best,” even if that means cosmetic procedures. Minogue said, “I’ve tried Botox, I’ve tried them all. I’m definitely one of those people who say, ‘You shouldn’t do this.’ Everyone can individually do what they want.”

Vanessa Williams agrees that cosmetic procedures are a personal decision that is becoming more widely accepted among those who make a living putting their faces in the public eye. She was reported telling the New York Daily News, “I certainly do Botox, which I definitely think that almost every woman that I know has imbibed.” Now reaching the age of 50, Williams is a shining example of how cosmetic procedures can effectively turn back the clock on one’s appearance.

Patricia Heaton is another celebrity who has admitted to “going under the knife” with positive results. Heaton has admitted to undergoing the classic “mommy makeover,” which includes a tummy tuck, breast implants and a breast lift. Heaton explained that after having four children, she wanted the chance to “fit into the gowns that I finally got to wear.” It does appear that Heaton might have removed the implants since that time, but she still flaunts the terrific results of her plastic surgery with a trimmer, younger physique.

Concerns about Manhattan plastic surgery

While many stars have voiced satisfaction with their cosmetic surgery results, not all have been as enthusiastic about the process. Courtney Cox, while admitting she does use Botox “sparingly,” recalls a time when she overdid the procedure. Cox told Marie Claire she felt “weird,” and “trapped in her own skin.” Cindy Crawford also admits to using Botox, but says the experience “scared” her. Jessica Simpson told the publication she had Restylane to plump up her lips, but she didn’t like the fact that the results looked “fake.”

Although some celebrities have gone public with their dissatisfaction over cosmetic procedures, in many situations, the less-than-stellar results could have more to do with the lack of professional guidance prior to their procedure of choice. Patients that seek the wisdom and advice of experienced plastic surgeons often find their expectations and actual results of their procedure are much more in line than those who choose a procedure based on what is popular at the time.

Choosing a qualified plastic surgeon

For men and women considering Manhattan plastic surgery, it is important to enlist the services of a surgeon who provides accurate information and sets appropriate expectations about the results one might expect.
