Amanda Bynes, former Nikelodeon child star, revealed this week in a published interview with US Magazine that she’s had cosmetic surgery on her nose so that she’d look “much prettier” in photos.
The 27-year-old Bynes said that she had a nose job or rhinoplasty to remove “webbed skin” that she said was growing between her nose and her eyes. Since having the surgery she says it has done amazing things for her confidence.
Bynes has looked noticeably different in new photos compared to old photos taken when she was still acting, and fans have been wondering if she had plastic surgery. Bynes finally opened up about her new appearance on her Twitter account Sunday and had this to say about old photos, "I'm so sick of magazines and blogs using old photos! When will they stop? I will never look like that again!"
The interview and recent openness on Twitter has many loved ones concerned for the retired actress. Bynes also recently has started posting nearly naked photos of herself on Twitter, saying she has an eating disorder and wants to lose 35 pounds, which would bring the "Amanda Show" star down to an unhealthy 100 pounds.
Amanda's parents have been genuinely concerned about their daughter's recent bizarre behavior, but haven't been in touch with her since Amanda cut off all communication with them months ago. According to a source, though, Amanda misses them and finally called them up.
Did you notice Amanda Bynes’ new look? What do you think about her nose job?
Celebrity Chef and reality television personality Paula Deen may consider plastic surgery after losing over 14 stones (200 pounds) and leaving her with excess skin and sagging appearance.
Paula, 66, is most famous for her loud personality and butter-bacon-laden U.S. southern-style food featured the popular Food Network. Nearly four years ago, she was diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes but kept it a secret until early last year.
Since announcing her condition she has changed her eating and cooking style to that of a healthier one, and she even became a spokesperson for a diabetes drug called Victoza – which caused her to lose her publicist and anger many in the industry.
But that doesn’t stop her for continuing to smile and churn out – not butter – but recipes for a new Paula Deen.
It is still unknown whether she’ll go through with the surgeries to remove the excess skin, but speculation seems to point that she has not definitively ruled it out either.
In a recent interview she said: “"At 66 you'll find your chin in your lap, you know, if you lose too much, because that loose skin has to go somewhere doesn't it?" joked Paula, who still wants to loose 15 more pounds. "I don't want to be cut on," Paula added, referring to excess skin removal.”

Cosmetic surgery and celebrity stardom, particularly in the U.S. seem to go hand-in-hand these days. Everyone from Reality TV stars, mega million-dollar actors to singers and performs, us lay normal people love to speculate that perhaps these people MUST have had some work done to get that fabulous look. Our latest cosmetic surgery culture victim is rapper and performer Nicki Minaj.
Recently in an interview with Hollywood Life, the 30-year-old rapper and American Idol judge once again fights back and claims she has never had cosmetic surgery to change the appearance of her face. She goes on to say that the secret to her look is the makeup. (Read the full story here) It’s a technique called make-up contouring, which another glam celebrity by the name of Kim Kardasian seems to love as well.
She may not have had (or want to admit) to cosmetic surgery, but what about those teeth? Is it possible to be born with such perfect teeth? LOL – What do you think?
Koreon pop-star sensation, PSY, best known for his now world-wide famous song and video ‘Gangnam Style’ revealed recently that his label initially demanded he undergo a drastic image overhaul, insisting he get plastic surgery to help improve his appearance.
“The agency heard my raps and were picturing a six-foot tall, sharp-looking, trendy guy. But the CEO opened our meeting with the statement, ‘What are we going to do with this? ‘How about we make him wear a cool mask?” PSY said in a recent media interview.
“Everyone was coming up with solutions to my ‘looks problem’. They said, ‘How about a bit of plastic surgery here and there?’
“The CEO’s response to that was, ‘Just a bit?’ In the end they reached no conclusions and just walked out of the room.”
PSY has since found success around the globe – his video for Gangnam Style has been viewed over 353 million times on YouTube making it one of the most watched clips of 2012. He is the first South Korean star to top the U.K. charts.
The matriarch of the highly popular American reality television show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has a message for women with breast implants.
This week, Kris Jenner, 52 and the mother of Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, appeared on a popular American morning television show to discuss the importance of replacing breast implants. This comes on the heels of their latest episode where she was filmed discussing her breast surgery and taking a trip to the hospital to have the procedure.
“You know, take them out and change them after 10 years,” she said on the morning television show. “That was a big message and important for me to sort of put out there in a comical way. But it was so important, health-wise, to remind women to check [their] expiration date because it’s a health risk.”
While entertainment critics may view this as a last attempt to boost ratings for the final season of the Kardashians, Jenner went on to say that the decision to air her pre-surgery footage is more of a PSA.
Whether a PSA or not, Jenner does have a point. It is important for any woman with breast implants to have regular check-ups with their cosmetic surgeon or medical professional. If you need to find a new breast surgeon, find many qualified professionals here on The Good Surgeon Guide.
American television personality and socialite, Kris Jenner, denies having lip injections despite being open about past plastic surgery work. Still, in a recent episode of ‘Keep Up with the Kardasians’ - - an American reality TV show that follows the lives of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and immediate family – Kris visibly has a puffy upper lip typical of a lip injection gone awry. Instead, it is reported she blames the enlarged upper lip to an allergic reaction to food. We’re no expert medical professionals, but we’ve had some allergic reactions in our time and this does not look like one!

When you are in the celebrity spotlight as much as the Kardashian sisters, it is no surprise that you would opt for a bit of cosmetic touch-up. Over the last couple years the sisters have made no secret in letting the world know (and even watch) their love for laser hair removal treatments. The sentiment was reinforced once again this week when Kim Kardashian, arguably the more famous of the three Kardasian sisters, sat down with Oprah in a two-part sit-down chat about life and image.
Kardashian modestly says that she does not think she is beautiful, but she does think she is ‘pretty’ and that she has to work hard for her appearance.
“It’s a job. Gym every day. I’ve lasered everything,” says Kim in an interview clip featured on Daily Mail.
We can only assume that by lasering everything, Kim means everything!
Hair removal has become popular for both men and women, but especially with women who, over the last several decades have been on the mad quest to attain smooth skin from head to toe. First it was shaving, which only led to itchy stubble and sometimes ingrown hairs. Then waxing became quite popular and accessible. Now, it’s laser hair removal.
The fallacy for both waxing and laser removal is that it permanently removes your hair. Not true. In fact, the goal in laser hair removal is to permanently reduce hair and it may give a patient some level of discomfort. The practitioner uses a laser device over the area to be treated, but because individual hair follicles grow at different stages, not all hairs can be targeted at the same time. Several treatments are needed spaced apart by 4-8 weeks.
The great thing, though, is that almost any area of the face and body can be treated. The treated hairs will shed 10-14 days after treatment where after the client will be smooth for a couple of weeks until another treatment is needed. While laser hair removal is an effective treatment, it is also long term process.

Even entertainment’s beauties are not immune to picking out one’s own body image flaws (even if we, on the outside don’t see any!). The latest super star to admit that she would not rule out cosmetic surgery is Nicole Scherizinger, singer of the super sexy group Pussycat Dolls.
In a recent interview with Mirror, she confesses that she is most self-conscious about her legs, especially her thighs and what she calls her “chubby knees.” If she can help it, she would rather wear long dresses to cover up her legs than the skimpy, more form fitting outfits. Looking at the pictures from the article, I am sure any normal, everyday woman would LOVE to have her sculpted thighs.
When asked about cosmetic surgery, Scherizinger said she’s not ruling it out, though aging naturally does not bother her either. As long as the cosmetic procedure is something that instills confidence in oneself, she has no problem with having it done – whatever procedure that may be.
“Everybody’s talking about this Botox. I’ve never had it, but one day, you never know,” she said in the interview.
For now, the Pussycat Doll is focusing on her career in music, and maybe even kids before heading down the cosmetic surgery route.
What do you think Nicole Scherizinger’s body?
French actress, most known for her roles in blockbuster films “Mission Impossible” and “Date with and Angel,” Emmanuelle Beart is speaking out against the dangers of cosmetic and aesthetic surgeries or enhancements, citing her own “botched” experiences.
Female celebrities are beauty icons, and let’s face it, there’s not a woman on this earth who has not once envied the look of a starlet. (If there is, we’d like to know what rock you’ve been living under.). That’s why we are not surprised when we hear that when women go into a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon, often the first thing out of their mouths is “I want to look like [insert female celeb name here].”
According to data over the last year from leading surgeons from around the world, Australia’s Marie Claire magazine, as reported in a recent article in Daily Mail UK, decided to reconstruct that ‘perfect woman’ – or at least her face anyway.
Of the top requested cosmetic surgery enquiries include:
The light article makes no mention of skin complexion, eye-brows, teeth -- let alone the rest of the body. What this does reveal, on a deeper level, is the influential impact Hollywood, fashion and the entertainment industry have over how we view our own self-image.
In the UK, women accounted for nearly 90% of all cosmetic surgery over the last year, with a large portion focused on facial features. As long as we love our celebs, cosmetic surgery for vanity reasons will continue to be a booming business.
We’ll leave you with just one question: Is that all that bad?
