The golden globes were a few weeks ago now and coming up this weekend will be the 61st Grammys which means celebrities have been in the media a lot lately and it’s got me thinking, are all of them really that flawless and perfect looking? The answer: plastic surgery.
Growing up, I was taught that plastic surgery had a lot of negative repercussions and that it could seriously mess with your health, and then knowing just how many celebrities who have had work done is insane.
Don’t get me wrong, some musicians, actors and models are naturally beautiful and have very nice features but many of them enhance those features. Whether it be lip fillers, eyebrow lifts, breast implants, tummy tucks or complete face lifts, there is so much one can get done to their bodies, it makes you question what is real and what is false.
Let’s look at some examples
These are just a few examples, if you look up some of your favorite celebs, you’d be surprised at how many have gone under the knife. And this begs the question, could it really be that unsafe? I’ve done some research.
All surgery comes with risks. Regardless of whether you’re going under for a routine medical procedure or doing something cosmetic, the risks are about the same. There can be infections, swelling, blood clots and very rarely death. This is normal for medical procedures and expected even but would you willingly go under the knife with all of these risks. Plastic surgery is a choice. Some medical procedures are necessary for survival and ensure that you can go on living healthy but all of those lip fillers and face lifts you hear about are by choice. I don’t know if I could bring myself to out myself through that willingly with the chance for complications, no matter how much I hated a certain feature.
Another thing I think about is that these celebrities have the funds to change whatever they want to. And the funds to fix any surgeries gone wrong if they do end up botched. So all of you naturally beautiful human beings, you’re lucky, be proud of your features because all of the people you see on your screen are beautiful but with some help.
