Allyson Donovan, the 32-year-old victor of the E! network’s controversial series “Bridalplasty,” may be the only winner of a reality-television competition to celebrate by getting cut.
Yet Donovan, an unemployed graphic designer and mother of 3-year-old Mason, did exactly that, having plastic surgery on her arms, chin, jowls and flanks (she calls them “woman handles”) and a breast lift before walking down the aisle to greet longtime love John for a dream wedding paid for by the production.
For Donovan, who beat nine competitors — including conniving runner-up Janessa Wainwright — her post-surgical suffering was nothing compared with the celebrity-style wedding the show bankrolled. She was also treated to a total smile makeover. “It was well worth it!” she tells us. Read more… Keep reading »
Heidi Montag is really trying to elicit sympathy for the scars she says 10 plastic surgeries caused. She has a scar below her chin from a chin reduction, a scar in her hairline, scars on her breast, one below her butt cheek, two bald spots, and lumps from liposuction on her legs, butt, and lower back. Heidi says she regrets having all this elective surgery in an interview with Life & Style. [PopEater] Keep reading »
When we first covered the topic of ethnic rhinoplasty, the tale of Los Angeles high school senior and Persian princess Dornaz Maraghehchi, who received a nose job as a gift for the Persian New Year, stirred much controversy.
Now an increase in the number of Asian patients seeking nose reshaping is bringing the hot topic back into the spotlight. Read more … Keep reading »
I first heard the word “labiaplasty” three years ago. Immediately, my interest was piqued. My unruly butterfly wings — otherwise known as my labia — interfered with my sexual activities. Riding a bike for more than 15 minutes? Painful. Camel toe? Obvious. Intercourse? Lube did little to relieve all that smooshing, pulling, stretching, especially when condoms were involved.
And then there were the unsolicited anatomical editorials that I’d received over the years, ranging from the respectfully observant, “You’re very floral,” to the horrifying, “Damn, girl. You got a fat p***y!,” to the complimentary, “Actually, I like it full and lippy … That’s my thing.” Keep reading »
I step into the doctor’s office for a simple checkup and want the highest drugs possible to knock me out. But some women are getting breast implants and staying wide awake during the invasive surgery. Yowza! Said Kelly McCoy of Plano, Texas, a 23-year-old who had her B-cup breasts enlarged to C-cups, “Just the fact that I don’t have to undergo general anesthesia and the fact that I get to have a hand in seeing what the end result is going to be was like a huge selling point to me.” Apparently, not getting anesthesia is worth being able to give “final approval” to your plastic surgeon while you’re under the knife. So, how painful is undergoing plastic surgery while wide awake? Keep reading »
“Bridalplasty,” the only reality show where the “winner gets cut.” Ha … ha? The trailer for “Bridalplasty,” the new reality TV show hosted by Shanna Moakler in which brides-to-be compete in wedding-related contests for plastic surgery prizes, doesn’t actually show us any of the brides-to-be. Or cosmetic surgery before-and-afters. Or crippling self-esteem issues that would lead one to radically change her boobs, lips and nose before walking down the aisle. Guess we’ll have to wait for this brilliant piece of television programming to arrive on the air. [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
