“It’s a free country, it’s a free life, do what you want. But get a good doctor! For crying out loud, pay the money to have a good doctor!”

“LA is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they’re fooling? It doesn’t make them look young. You end up looking like a freak.”
“It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they’ll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I’ll look like before I start cleaning the slates. I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy, and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story… and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.”
– Julia Roberts, “Eat, Pray, Love” actress and “practicing Hindu,” on Botox and plastic surgery in the new issue of Elle. There’s also this really sweet quote about having three children with her husband, Danny Moder. She says: “The children became the shooting stars of him, of that thing we have. How lucky we are that we love each other so much that we burst into three pieces.” I’m sorry, I can’t help but “aww” at that. [Elle via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Will it ever end!? As if being able to surgically alter your breasts, hips, nose, cheeks, lips, butt, thighs and stomach wasn’t enough, women are now getting cosmetic procedures on their feet so they can fit into tiny heels and look absolutely perfect in a pair of sandals. The Beverly Hills Aesthetic Foot Surgery in Studio City in Los Angeles is fueling this awful trend with their trademark “Cinderella Procedure” which gives clients narrower feet. Others go for the “Perfect 10! Aesthetic Toe Shortening,” which is just what it sounds like. Women can get their toes shortened and even straightened because buying shoes that actually fit just makes too much sense. For gals who can’t spend a single day in flats or sneakers, docs at the clinic will provide extra cushioning by injecting fat from their butts into the bottoms of their feet, supposedly to make stilettos more comfortable. If the worst thing about your tootsies is that they sweat, docs will inject them with Botox which stops glands from working properly, thus eliminating sweat.
Jessica Alba is not the only woman in the world with a fan desperate to get plastic surgery to look like her. This weekend, Kim Kardashian instructed a fan over Twitter not to get “head to toe plastic surgery.” Like Alba’s fan who was trying to win back an ex-boyfriend, the woman (who has since deleted her account, @brisajohnson) claimed her husband “worships” Kardashian and said she was getting plastic surgery “so my husband won’t leave me.” Keep reading »
Later this month, Filipino singer and actress Charice Pempengco will begin filming for “Glee” and she’s not just prepping for her role by memorizing lines. The 18-year-old admits she had Botox to make her “naturally round face” appear more narrow on TV. “All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry? So of course there is tremendous pressure,” she told an interviewer. Somebody needs to tell Charice that “Glee” is a singing show, not a beauty contest. Unfortunately, it doesn’t surprise me that an 18-year-old thinks she needs Botox. Sometimes I think women use plastic surgery and injectables like Botox as a crutch even if they don’t “need” it, just because it makes them feel better. [AP] Keep reading »
