When it comes to plastic surgery, some patients simply describe the look that they're hoping to achieve to their doctors. Maybe they want a smoother nose or a rounder backside, and following a consultation, their doctors have a strong understanding of their expectations. The majority of patients, however, come into their consultations with a celebrity-inspired ideal in mind. In fact, for many of these patients, it was the hope that they could emulate a certain celebrity that inspired them to pursue cosmetic enhancement in the first place.
As you can imagine, doctors hear the same celebrity comparisons come up for certain body parts time and time again. So what are the most requested celebrity body parts?
Over the last few years, there has been a trend of women looking to increase the size of their backsides. When it comes to butts, the celebrity ideals are Kim Khardashian, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce. And not surprisingly, Beyonce has more than one enviable body part. Her cheekbones are some of the most requested as well, along with Jennifer Garner’s and January Jones’s. When it comes to noses, the celebrity ideals are Kate Middleton, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Aniston. And for lips, one of the most requested cosmetic procedures, the most popular references are Scarlett Johansson and Kylie Jenner.
Women aren't the only ones going under the knife to replicate a certain celebrity look. In fact, as plastic surgery has become more popular, an increasing number of men are turning to cosmetic enhancement to improve their looks.
For men, one of the most common requests is Will Smith's cheeks, which are big and full and play a large part in Mr. Smith's room-illuminating smile. When it comes to the body, more and more men want to look like Channing Tatum, whose impressive pecs and abs have been on full display in the Magic Mike movies and plastered across magazine covers. And for overall appearance, a lot of men turn to Hugh Jackman for inspiration. Not only does Mr. Jackman have an enviable body, but his cheekbones and jawline are also highly coveted.
When it comes to plastic surgery, it's a good idea to have celebrity ideals to use as reference points, but most plastic surgeons are quick to caution that not every look is easily achievable. If you're thinking about undergoing plastic surgery, make sure you have an open conversation with your doctor about keeping your expectations grounded and reasonable.
