Think about the nightly showdown you had with yourself and the mirror as a teen. I’m sure there were at least 10 things you spent hours berating. If mom and dad came in with a credit card and offered a permanent solution, would you take it? Be it a boob job, ear tuck, lipo, lip injections and hell, while we’re at it, a cortisone shot for that zit that won’t go away. Most teens would jump for the chance, and the case was no different with Nicolette Taylor. The 13-year-old from Long Island was featured on ABC News after her parents paid for her rhinoplasty.
The reason for getting plastic surgery at 13? Bullying.

This is Katie Halchishick, one of the founders of the blog Healthy Is The New Skinny. She was photographed for the November issue of O magazine covered in the dotted lines that would be made by a plastic surgeon prior to cosmetic surgery. She’s clutching a Barbie doll and the lines on her nude flesh — the first time O has featured a nude model — indicate what she would have to have cut away in order to have Barbie’s figure. Shot by famed photographer Matthew Rolston, the concept — that Barbie’s body does not at all reflect the measurements of real women — may not be especially “new,” but it’s certainly the most striking depiction that I’ve ever seen. The image is accompanied by a letter to “Every Woman” from novelist Amy Bloom, in which she writes, “You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.” [Healthy Is The New Skinny]
“I don’t have perfect teeth, I’m not stick thin. I want to be the person who feels great in her body and can say that she loves it and doesn’t want to change anything. It’s ridiculous that [loving the way you look] seems such an unrealistic goal. I think the actresses who are really successful are the ones who are comfortable in their own skin and still look human.”
— Emma Watson shared her healthy take on body image to Elle UK, which is especially refreshing because legions of little girls look up to her. Emma also told the mag “all those young people having plastic surgery” is “quite scary.” Don’t go changing, Emma! [Gurl.com] Keep reading »
Finally, something to do with all that excess fat on your stomach: redirect it to your ass for “the Pippa butt lift.”
Plastic surgery clients now want to emulate the most overrated white girl booty in the world — that of Pippa Middleton, royal maid of honor and scene stealer. “Good Morning America” talked to Miami single mom Christina Valdez, who envied Pippa’s petite waist and poppin’ booty so badly that she went under the knife.

Some folks aren’t keen on plastic surgery to begin with. (Raises hand.) Other folks need a little negative reinforcement to remind them that getting sliced up by Dr. 90210 is not a decision to be made lightly. If you are considering plastic surgery of any kind, take a long, hard look at these six botched plastic surgeries and ask yourself, “Am I willing to join this slideshow?” And that goes double for you, Human Barbie Dolls!
“Ali Lohan Has A New Face.” “A 17-year-old shouldn’t have a plastic surgeon playing Frankenstein with her face.” “Ali Lohan Gets Crazy Plastic Surgery, No Longer Looks Like A Lohan.” “R.I.P. Ali Lohan‘s old face, 1993-2011.” These are just a few of the headlines and comments being written about Lindsay Lohan’s younger sister Ali, who recently signed a contract with NEXT Model Management. Clearly Ali looks shockingly different in this recent photo (you can see others here) than she did just two years ago (inset). Her lips appear to be a bit fuller, her cheekbones are more pronounced, and her eyes seem wider; the general consensus among writers on the internet is that she’s had drastic plastic surgery. But while I wouldn’t put it past Dina Lohan to give the thumbs up to her 17-year-old putting her face under the scalpel, my first thought upon seeing these photos was, Oh my god, she must have an eating disorder.

Is no one on “Bachelor Pad” even the slightest bit authentic? I am feeling a bit naive at the moment for buying the sob story presented by Ella Nolan over the course of the show. Ever since the beginning of “Bachelor Pad,” we have been hearing her say why she ABSOLUTELY NEEDS to win the $250K grand prize so that she can give her 9-year-old son the best life possible. “I am a single mother … and I am struggling,” she said last episode, before bursting into tears because safety roses were given to Vienna and Kasey over her and Kirk. This, on top of her tragic childhood—her stepfather shot her mother on the street at point blank range in front of her—made her exceptionally sympathetic.
Which is why I was shocked to read this morning that Ella has pulled a half Heidi Montag. Yes, Ella has gone and gotten herself five plastic surgery procedures and has told the tale, and given photos, to Life & Style, as if this were something to be proud of. Keep reading »
“People are saying I got cheek implants, my chin shaved down and a nose job. If I got work done, I would be open to talking about it. I didn’t. I lost 15 pounds, and my cheeks have become more defined. I highlight my cheeks instead of putting bronzer on them.”
—Jenni “J-Woww” Farley responds to folks who are saying that she must have had some work done to her face between seasons of “Jersey Shore.” I’m inclined to believe her. She is no stranger to the knife, and has been very open about getting fake boobs. However, if ditching the bronzer can make that much of a difference—the product should be outlawed.
