When you think of plastic surgery, you think of celebrities, right? We all do. And, for the most part, it’s much-deserved. Celebs have been getting nose jobs and tummy tucks for as long as the procedures have existed. But, what you might not know is that normal, everyday, people get plastic surgery too.
Here are some celeb success stories and how you can benefit from them.
Actress Megan Fox doesn’t speak about it publicly, but she looks to have had a nose job, and some fillers in her lips and face. According to KRPlasticSurgery.com, this is routine plastic surgery, and one that many people get.
A nose job basically consists of the doctor mapping out a new nose and then making precise cuts to reduce, shape, or fill out the tip of the nose or other areas that are not bone or structural.
Most doctors will do a nose surgery (rhinoplasty) to change the size of the nose in relation to facial balance, reduce or eliminate bumps or ridges in the nose, and fix nasal asymmetry.
You probably know her from the hit series Everybody Loves Raymond. But, what you may not know is that Heaton has had a tummy tuck and a breast reduction and reshaping. After 4-boys, the actress decided it was time.
Many women do this sort of thing after a pregnancy. In fact, breast reduction (not enlargement) is one of the most common procedures.
A tummy tuck removes loose skin around the abdomen, and is particularly effective on the lower abdomen where rapid fat loss can cause stretching and stretch marks that are otherwise irreparable.
A breast reduction doesn’t always mean a flat reduction in the size of the breasts. While women do often choose to get rid of some size, many women opt for a reshaping of the breasts themselves. This is particularly helpful after pregnancy when the breasts may sag or become misshapen after breastfeeding.
Her brief stint on Dancing With The Stars wasn’t the end of her career. She made headlines again when she decided to have her teeth straightened. And, it wasn’t merely cosmetic. Her plastic surgery included a jaw adjustment to realign her teeth.
This is not as well-known of a surgery as breast augmentation, but it is a common type of surgery that people undergo when they have lived with less-than-perfect molars for their whole life. While braces can correct a lot of problems, sometimes the issue is with the jaw itself.
People who have misaligned jaws often suffer chronic headaches and migraines, pain in the jaw and mouth area, and have an underbite.
Getting this surgery can cost several thousand dollars, but is often done for more reasons than just cosmetic. It can help restore a sense of normalcy to one’s life.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Before he was a famous actor, he was a wrestler. And, as he made the transition from wrestling to acting, he had a decision to make – keep or lose the massive wrestling pecs. He chose the latter. Losing the massive chest earned him a place in a few leading roles and the rest is history.
Most people are surprised that men have surgery to reduce the size of their chest. But, many men suffer from a condition called “Gynecomastia,” which is an accumulation of fatty tissue in the male breast that eventually grows to look like female breasts.
