We try to keep you all up to date with the latest news and gossip about celebrities and their cosmetic surgeries, but sometimes the woman-centric gossip columns can be misleading; actually, a lot of men have cosmetic surgery, too – and celebrity circles aren’t an exception to this rule.
Plenty of our favourite male celebs have gone under the knife in the past few years. We all know that Michael Jackson had his fair share of surgeries, including a couple of nose jobs and some chin work, and everyone’s top pop hunk Enrique Iglesias had a mole removed at the height of his stardom.
Mickey Rourke is probably one of Tinseltown’s most famously worked-on celebs, and we won’t even try to count the number of surgeries he’s had.
So there: there really are plenty of top hunks to choose from when it comes to success stories from Hollywood’s hottest men going under the knife. It just goes to show that all of us care about how we look – men AND women.
Everyone knows Nicki Minaj – she’s one of the most famous faces on TV and one of the most famous voices on the radio today. She’s known for her vibrant appearance, often wearing wigs and outlandish – but always utterly gorgeous – fashions. However, Nicki may be a trendsetter in more ways than one – some surgeons believe that she’s indulged in a little nose surgery and/or breast implants to help those natural good looks along.
Nicki denies having had surgery on her face, but doesn’t say anything about the rest of her body. She says that instead of surgery, she uses special make-up and application techniques.
”I’ve never had surgery on my face. They’ll see contour and they’ll think you had surgery on your nose. No, no, no, look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want. When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup.”
Share the secret, Nicki! Whatever she’s doing, it seems to be working.
Ozzy Osbourne has previously told the press that he has indulged in a nose job and a facelift, which probably explains why he really doesn’t look his age at 64. He might not be the cosmetic surgery industry’s first choice when it comes to adverts for surgery, but you’ve got to give it to him – after a long life of partying, he’s looking better than most of us will at 64.
Most recently, there’s been speculation about whether Ozzy has been following in his wife, Sharon’s, footsteps, and saying goodbye to plastic surgery. Sharon has told the public that she won’t be undergoing any surgery after the double mastectomy she had to combat breast cancer.
Ozzy, too, has told Glamour magazine that ‘My philosophy is that if, when you look in the mirror, all you can see is the double chin or the big nose, and it makes your life easier to have them cut off, do it. But like tattoos, once you have one, you have two, you have three…’
All in all, we agree; but then, maybe Ozzy’s been going to the wrong surgeries! It’s true that some people can get a little addicted to cosmetic surgery, but good clinics won’t grant you those extra operations that you don’t really need. All of our patients are those people who fall into the first category – those who are a little unhappy with what they’ve got, and think they deserve better. And why not? Ozzy’s right – do what makes your life easier.
We’ve got another exclusive patient story today, this time coming from gorgeous Helen! A lovely lady, Helen is here to tell us about her experience with Secret Surgery, having returned home to the UK post-surgery in December.
What did you get done? “I had a breast lift and also my nose was reshaped.”
And what do you think of the results? “I have to say, I couldn’t be happier with the results – the mirror is now my best friend!”
Did you feel good about the hospital when you arrived? “I knew I was in safe hands with Dr. Waclowowicz, who made sure he understood exactly what results I wanted to achieve, and actually surpassed my expectations with my nose.”
And was the level of support you received good? “The help and advice I received from Secret Surgery before and after my procedures has been second to none, making the whole experience, from my initial booking to arriving back in Liverpool, so easy and stress-free!”
A lot of us see new years as symbolic of new starts: we’ve got a whole twelve months ahead of us, and what better way to spend them than totally revamping ourselves? The thought that next Christmas you could be three sizes slimmer and twice as fit is a tempting one, and that’s why resolutions, diets and gym memberships are flying around like crazy at this time of the year.
Rarely, however, do we ask ourselves the truly important questions first: am I ready for this change? Sometimes, diets fail with our motivations levels, but sometimes we just simply aren’t ready to take them on. Undergoing major cosmetic surgery is similar – some people just aren’t ready for it. How can you tell if 2013 is your year?
Well, first off – are you sure you’re doing this for you? It sounds silly - of course I want to be slimmer, you might think – but sometimes, our hearts just aren’t in it. If you’re unhappy with your nose or your bum or your boobs because your boyfriend or your friends seem to think they’re lacking, but you like them… well, you’re not really unhappy with them, are you?
And then, even if you do want it, are you sure you have the time, energy and commitment for it? Many procedures entail taking a little time off work, and you may have to be patient before experiencing the results. You certainly can’t expect to have your surgery in the first week of February and be ready and healed up by Valentine’s Day!
If you’ve really thought about it and decide that yes – 2013 is your year – then don’t hesitate! We’re here to help everyone through the process of cosmetic surgery, and we make sure everyone is ready before they have surgery with us!
Vanessa Hudgens has been a star since a very tender age, which naturally means that the world has watched her grow up and mature. However, many celeb-spotters think that Hudgens’ nose has ‘matured’ a little more than the rest of her – could this be down to cosmetic surgery?
Speculators say that the young star’s nose has become smaller over the years, which isn’t something that usually happens as we age. Of course, she’s been gorgeous ever since she came onto our screens – but she has certainly grown into a real beauty! Whether she’s done this with a little plastic surgery or not, we don’t really care – whoever’s work it is, Vanessa Hudgens has certainly been lucky with her gorgeous nose.
For years, the world has been speculating that Gwyneth Paltrow may have had nose surgery back when she was just a teen, despite the actress never having confirmed this in public. The 39-year-old recently told the world her thoughts on plastic surgery.
“Everyone is asking me about my thoughts on plastic surgery. Do I look old or something? I’m not opposed to it but I want to move my face because I’m supposed to convey emotion in my job. But I have wrinkles so I don’t know – I’m not going to say that I’ll never do anything, but I would always want to look like myself.”
Gwyn doesn’t sound like she has any immediate plans for cosmetic work in the near future, though we’re happy to hear she’s open-minded about the possibility. I don’t think she needs any, but it’s always better be feel confident and happy, celeb or not.
Will you be looking out for any sign of Gwyneth Paltrow having a quick nip here or a little tuck there? We certainly will!
Small ones, big ones, fat ones, thin ones, arched ones, hooked ones and broken ones; noses come in all shapes and sizes! Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that plenty of us don’t find our noses to be letting down the rest of our faces.
What’s important to people isn’t necessarily having a smaller one or a rounder one; the weird thing is, we all want different ones. Society doesn’t have anything to say about the ‘perfect’ nose, and it seems like we all have different ideas of perfection when it comes to our olfactory conks.
The nose is what pulls a face together, and sometimes we’re just born with noses that don’t suit our faces. I’m betting Serge Gainsbourg found his nose to be quite an asset, but on a dainty damsel like his one-time love Brigitte Bardot, it probably would have proved less popular.
Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd. says that “Nose jobs have become the new boob jobs. Women and men aren’t getting their noses done to fit into some idealised media image; they’re doing it to fit in with their own image of themselves. Nose jobs are all about looking the way you want to look, however that is.”
