‘I’d like it to look as natural as possible’ – the most common request our patients make to our doctors and surgeons – now with an added pinch of celebrity resemblance!
There has recently been a growing number of celebrity body-part look-alike requests, and with recent industry updates, men are proving to be just as celeb-aware as women. Instead of asking for the most suitable natural results, patients are increasingly walking into consultations knowing that they want ‘Kate Middleton’s nose’ or ‘Zac Effron’s hair’.
Patients are turning to the natural beauty of their famous idols, with Kate Middleton’s nose, Cheryl Cole’s dimples, Zac Effron’s hair and eyes, Robert Pattinson’s jaw line and Ashton Kutcher’s chiselled cheeks at the top of the Plastic Surgery wish list.
Cosmetic surgery has existed for hundreds of years and celebrity inspiration has surely seen its trends over the past decade. According to UK statistical data published by BAAPs (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons), breast augmentations in women increased by 10.3%, while blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) procedures rose by 7% over the past 3 years. Men wanting eyelid correction surgery increased by 6%, while rhinoplasty procedures increased by 13% and Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) increased by 28%.
While liposuction, breast augmentation, blepharoplasty and face-lifts have been the most popular plastic surgery procedures over the past 10 years, the demand for minimally invasive cosmetic treatment has also increased dramatically, with more patients turning to Botox and Fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, to stay looking as young, rejuvenated and as natural as possible.
So with trends proving that more of the general public are after celebrity body-parts, who’s celebrity idol-worthy body parts will be on the most wanted list for 2013?
