Cosmetic Surgery 2010 Year in Review
With the end of the year nearly here, we thought it would be fun to reflect back on the best and, yes, the worst cosmetic surgery stories of 2010. No doubt, the year was filled with lots of interesting news – in fact, far more than what we could cover in a blog post. But, we wanted to recap some of our favorites that piqued our curiosity, made us laugh, and even made us want to cry.
Jane Fonda Gets A Little Work Done…And a Haircut
Jane proudly announced on her blog that she had some work done on her chin, neck, and lower eyelids. On the blog, she also said, ““I decided to get a new haircut so people would think it’s my new hair.” Well, we love the refreshed Jane and her new do!
Lisa Rinna Undergoes a Lip Reduction
Finally, Lisa Rinna decided to smooth out her “bumpy and uneven” pucker by undergoing a lip reduction. We say kudos to her for being honest in the media and finally reducing the size of her abnormally inflated upper lip. You look even more beautiful than before!
Kate Hudson’s Goes from an AA to a B
To celebrate her 31st birthday, Kate Hudson gave herself the gift of new breasts. And, we like the fact that she didn’t go the route of many of her peers. Instead of choosing implants too big for her slight frame, she went from a size AA to a B and looks great! The result is a natural, fuller look that enhances her beauty instead of detracting from it.
NeNe Leakes Gets a Nose Job but Stays True to Herself
Atlanta Real Housewife was open about the procedures she underwent – a nose job, a breast implant reduction/lift, and liposuction around her waist. Nene’s transformation was subtle, yet impactful. We especially love her quote to People Magazine – “I still wanted to look like NeNe, the black woman that I am, but a better version.”
Pamela Anderson Doesn’t Want to Chase Youth
Former Bay Watch star Pamela Anderson announced that she will not be having any more plastic surgery and is going to let nature take its course from now on. As she said to a reporter, “I’m not against plastic surgery, what I’ve had done will stay with me and that’s fine, but I don’t want anything else. I’ll do facials. I’ve always had that Playboy vibe. I don’t want to chase youth, and anyway, I find it chases me!” At 43, Pamela looks great, and has long since dispelled the myth that she’s a “dumb blonde”.
Lil’ Kim Gets Pressure from Her Fans
Having never admitted that she had any plastic surgery, Lil Kim’s physical transformation is all the more shocking. From what we gather, she’s had breast augmentation, multiple nose jobs, skin bleaching, and cheek implants. Unfortunately, she doesn’t even resemble her former self. Members of her online fan club even staged a “virtual invention” threatening not to support her if she continues to transform herself cosmetically. We say, “Good for them!”
Heidi Montag Regrets Her Surgery
Heidi’s ongoing saga from last year’s surgery continues. Now, she admits to having regrets and says, “Parts of my body definitely look worse than they did pre-surgery.” She publicly complained about her 2-inch long raised scar under her chin from her chin reduction, the two bald spots in her hairline from a brow lift, and a scar behind her ears from having her ears pinned back. She also claims to be unhappy about the outcome of her liposuction and breast augmentation. And as she puts it, “I would love to not be ‘plastic girl’ or whatever they call me.” We can only hope that Heidi starts working on her inner beauty as much as she seems to obsess about her outer appearance.
Bridalplasty Hits the Airwaves
E!’s series Bridalplasty has taken reality TV to a whole new level. With brides-to-be competing for an all-expenses paid dream wedding AND a bevy of plastic surgery procedures with the hopes that they will become the “perfect bride,” we think this show is portraying women in a poor light and sending out some mixed messages about love and beauty that just aren’t very positive.
Miss Plastic 2010 Announces a “Winner”
Perhaps this was inevitable, but yes, there is now a contest for women who have had their bodies enhanced by cosmetic surgery. Deemed ‘Miss Plastic 2010’ and held in Budapest, Hungary, contestants had to bring their medical records to qualify for entry. An “expert” medical panel gave extra points to contestants for the quality of their plastic surgery. Do you think this contest would be a hit in the U.S.? Hmmm.
Well, that’s our list for the year. No doubt, 2011 will bring new stories and news items worth reporting on. Stay tuned for all that’s new on the Shapiro Plastic Surgery Blog.
