Show me someone who says he or she hasn't dreamed, at least once, of looking like a movie star, and I'll show you someone who has been living under a rock for decades. Women mostly dream about looking as hot as Salma Hayek , having Jennifer Connelly's lovely breasts or getting Jessica Alba's all-too-perfect body, while we guys sometimes wish we could look like Cary Grant, George Clooney, or Brad Pitt.
Most of us are just content with whatever face or body we were born with, that fantasizing about looking like some celebrity is just that: a fantasy. But there are some who are willing to do whatever it takes just to fulfill his or her dream of being a facsimile of his or her favorite celebrity. And only cosmetic surgery can help them get what they want.
To look like a star with celebrity surgery is one of the more recent trends in the field of cosmetic surgery nowadays. The article at the WCBS-TV New York website cites a recent survey that 9 out of 10 cosmetic surgery patients hope the results of their procedure would make them look something like their favorite actors or actresses.
According to the article, among the most requested celebrity looks are those of Angelina Jolie, Jessica Simpson, Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Aniston.
It is a no-brainer, however, that there's no way even the most skillful of cosmetic surgeons could make any patient look exactly like the particular celebrity they've requested. And patients should realize that what may look good on a certain star, say, those seemingly bee-stinged lips of Angelina Jolie's, may look ridiculous on another human being.
The point is, patients who want to pay the ultimate tribute to their favorite stars by mimicking their physical attributes should have realistic expectations. And they should remember that cosmetic surgery isn't like going to the salon for a new hairstyle. Changing a bad hairstyle is easy. Reversing or revising a cosmetic surgical procedure that doesn't produce the desired results is not.
