Celebrities influencing cosmetic surgeries

Lady Gaga's hit song "Born This Way" may be landing on deaf ears. Many cosmetic surgeons say that popular celebrities, such as the pop sensation, are causing admirers to seek out surgeries to look as similar as possible to their favorite stars.

According to the Toronto Sun, cosmetic plastic surgeons say that commonly-mentioned celebrities include Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and reality TV stars Kim Kardashian and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

While those who like the way Lady Gaga's face is contoured may request facial implants to achieve a similar look, other well-known celebrity features require different procedures.

Those who want fuller lips, like Angelina Jolie's, often opt for lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers.

Other popular requests are Brad Pitt’s nose through rhinoplasty, liposuction to get Jennifer Aniston’s abs, and a lower body lift with gluteal implants to get Kim Kardashians back side.

Men who like the way The Jersey Shore’s “The Situation's” chest and abdomen look may receive liposuction or breast reduction surgery (gynecomastia) to achieve a similar appearance.

While the phenomenon of wanting to look like a celebrity isn't anything new, experts say that individuals should remember that not all features are achievable or natural-looking on everyone.

In addition, those seeking cosmetic surgeries are encouraged to discuss their options and determine a realistic result with their board-certified plastic surgeon.
