Many people choose to undergo plastic surgery to enhance their appearance. However, doctors say that a lot of patients come into their offices with a certain celebrity feature they want to achieve through their surgery.

A group of British plastic surgeons recently identified the celebrities that most people want to look like with the help of cosmetic surgeries.

"Patients continue to look to Hollywood to determine their standard of beauty, but they are realistic in their desires to look more energetic and youthful, as well as completely natural," one doctor told

Among patients who want body-transforming surgeries such as liposuction, body contouring and tummy tucks, the most sought-after celebrity looks include actress Jennifer Aniston and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
When it comes to nose jobs, doctors say many patients want theirs to resemble Natalie Portman's or Emma Stone's.

Those who want non-surgical procedures to appear more youthful through the use of microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser treatments and Botox injections say celebrities such as Amy Adams, Katy Perry and Gwyneth Paltrow look great.

While Angelina Jolie's lips have been popular in the past, many are now seeking treatments that will help them get lips that look more like Scarlett Johanssen's.

Women aren’t the only ones who want to resemble celebrities. Men often want their nose to look like Jude Law's, their lips like Ashton Kutcher's, their skin like Neil Patrick Harris' and their body like Mark Wahlberg's, according to

"Patients are quite discerning about their looks and agree that many of these actors qualify for various categories," another plastic surgeon told the website. "But [they] agree that Scarlett Johanssen has the best lips and Mark Wahlberg, the best body."

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 choose a licensed, board-certified plastic surgeon to help ensure safety and good results.
