No one can deny that big butts are trendy nowadays, and it all started innocently enough with fans wanting to be curvy like JLo. But now, thanks to plastic surgery, media and marketing, absurdly unnatural curves have become the new thing and women are literally dying trying to achieve these unreal curves. There are three ways that women are currently altering their butts to achieve this look and those are: butt implants, fat transfer and black market “butt shots”.
Apryl Michelle Brown lost not only the butt that she so desperately wanted to enlarge, but also her arms and legs, which all had to be amputated following two sessions of “butt shots” where she was injected with liquid silicon. Following years of intense pain and trying to find a doctor that could help her remove the toxic substance that was injected into her, Apryl finally had her butt, legs and arms amputated in order to save her life. As a quadriplegic, Apryl is considered lucky, as many women in her position have died trying to remove the toxic substances that were injected into them during back-alley procedures and “pumping parties”.
But don’t be mislead…Pumping parties and industrial grade fillers injected by unlicensed individuals is not the only way you will run into problems trying to achieve that Kim Kardashian booty. There are risks and compilation associated with any cosmetic surgery, even when performed by a licensed and board certified cosmetic surgeon. With the popular fat transfer procedure, or Brazilian Butt Lift, fat is harvested via liposuction, then injected into the butt. Risk with this surgery include, fat necrosis (as seen to the left), puncture of organs, fat emboli, infection and more, including death.
Many women that have had cheap, back-alley butt shots, are now dealing with the pain, deformation and complication that can occur immediately or over time, after having industrial grade silicon and other cheap “fillers” injected into their bodies. Doctors are still trying to figure out how to deal with this problem, but the general consensus is that it’s impossible to remove all of the silicon (or other matter) that is floating around in these women’s bodies. Attempts to remove this junk, in order to relieve the pain and suffering that these women are going through, usually results in amputations, disfiguring and/or death.
For many people with a healthy immune system, eventually your body will try to expel foreign matter that had been introduced into the body. Since your body can not metabolize and process plastics like silicon, as a last resort your body will try to push out substances that it feels are toxic in any way possible. This can mean that your body may choose to force these foreign substances out by pushing it through your muscles and skin, causing gaping, oozing sores that can be life-threatening, debilitating and disgusting, at best. Is that extra curvy butt really worth it?
In 2012, a video of a women with a flipped butt implant went viral after she posted it to Youtube. In the video, she appears with one of her over-sized implants that had flipped backwards, leaving her with one round cheek and one with a bizarre flat edge. She then reaches under the implants and manually twists it back around, commenting, “I don’t think an implant’s supposed to do that…”. The woman, who goes by Renee, had the implants removed, but wants to warn other women to simply “Love the skin you’re in. Please don’t go and do this stuff to yourself. If more people would come out and tell their stories then less women would go and do this.”Tags: butt shots
Well, who would have thought that Rumer Willis would so quickly be following in her mom’s footsteps?! Rumer’s mom, Demi Moore, is best known for two things: acting and having a boatload of plastic surgery. Wanna take a stab at which path Rumer is heading down?
Rumer has recently popped up in a spoof video of Ariana Grande’s hit song “Problems”, where she tries really hard to be sexy while flapping around her new huge fake lips. And while the 25-year old
actress model trustfund kid has been getting lip injection and plastic surgery for years now, her new lips are ridiculously swollen.
Rumor started getting lip injections in 2012, and while she obviously likes her new pouty look, I think it’s safe to say that she has gone too far with the lip injections. Her lips are literally 5 times the size of her natural lips, and that is just too much!
Don’t forget kids, YOLO, BYPSMLF (You Only Live Once, But Your Plastic Surgery Mistakes Last Forever)! We’ll expect to see Rumer Willis on “Botched” in 5 years from now…
Remember when Lindsay Lohan’s little sister, Ali Lohan, decided that she was going to be a “model” and starved herself into a stick figure? Well, thank goodness poor Ali came to her senses and has gained a healthy amount of weight back!
In 2011, Ali shocked the media with her extreme weight loss (and plastic surgery) and announcement that she was now pursuing a modeling career. Although Ali claimed that she was naturally thin, thanks to a high metabolism, clearly she was also dieting or suffering from an eating disorder, in order to achieve the waif-ish look that she was sporting in 2011 – 2012.
Thankfully, 20-year old Ali has come to her senses and has gained a healthy amount of weight, which she showed off in a black and white bikini in Italy over the weekend. If you ask us, Ali Lohan looks fantastic after gaining weight and looks better than she ever has!
More pictures of Ali Lohan showing off her weight gain in Italy:
Ali Lohan and her sister Lindsay are currently partying in Italy and hitting up some film festivals while Lindsay prepares for her
15th shot at a comeback in “Speed-The-Plow”, which is a play that will debut later this year. Ali, who didn’t seem to find much success in the modeling world, has switched gears and is currently working on a country music album.
Dove Cameron is the newest Disney princess, who’s career in Hollywood is quickly taking off. Dove’s real name is Chloe Hosterman, and her name isn’t the only thing that she changed when she moved from Seattle to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in acting…
Dove clearly stopped off at a plastic surgery center, on her way to Hollywood, and man oh man, did she get one heck of a nose job!
You would think that Disney would be able to find a fresh-faced actress, that was actually a naturally fresh-faced teenager, but apparently that is not how the business works anymore? It seems like whomever gets the most plastic surgery, at the youngest age, automatically gets their foot in the door of the highly competitive acting industry.
Dove Cameron is barely 18-years old, but she started her plastic surgery transformation in her mid-teens. Before making her way to Hollywood, Dove had a drastic nose job. So drastic, in fact, that the bridge of her nose has almost completely disappeared! While her new button nose may be cute now, having plastic surgery in your teens can be risky because your body has not finished growing and is still changing. This fact, mixed with the aggressive nature of Dove’s nose job, could lead to problems down the road that will require additional surgery. Several celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Carmen Campuzano and Lil Kim have attempted to have their noses rebuilt after botched nose jobs, but this difficult surgery is often unsuccessful and can make the problem even worse.
In addition to the rhinoplasty surgery, Dove has also had work done on her lips. Judging by the fluctuating lip size, it appears that Dove Cameron also gets filler injections in her lips, which needs to be re-done every 6 – 12 months to keep up that pillowy pout.
What’s next for Dove Cameron? She’s currently starring on Disney’s “Liv and Maddie”, has a starring role in the movie “Cloud 9” and is working on her singing career with her boyfriend Ryan McCartan. Hopefully Hollywood doesn’t chew Dove up and spit her out and we hope that she stays away from having more plastic surgery!Tags: Disney, Liv and Maddie, teenagers, under 20
When we think of the Bravo series “The Real Housewives”, we can’t help but conjure up images of middle-aged housewives with immobile faces and over-the-top plastic surgery. So, you can imagine our surprise when Heather Dubrow, of “The Real Housewives of Orange County”, mentioned that she hasn’t actually ever had any plastic surgery…especially because she is also married to a celebrity plastic surgeon!
According to Heather’s husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, 44-year old Heather is perfect the way she is and doesn’t need plastic surgery. When asked about it, Dr. Dubrow said:
“We have talked about it. I don’t want my wife to have any plastic surgery – look at her, what would you do? My wife’s body is unbelievable, my wife is rarefied air!“.
And while Dr. Dubrow thinks that his wife’s body is unbelievable, he does mention that their 4 children literally sucked the life out of her breasts, but that Heather’s all-natural boobs are “still good” and “equally attractive“, even though “they are slightly deflated“. Uhhhh…TMI Dr. Dubrow? At one point, Heather and her husband talked about breast implants, but he said that since they looked good and she was not bothered by them, there was no point in Heather having a breast augmentation surgery. You’ve got to wonder if Dr. Dubrow is so quick to talk potential clients out of getting breast implants? Judging by the fact that his networth is in the 10’s of millions, we’re going to guess that he’s slinging breast implants to anyone that’s buying…
Clearly Dr. Dubrow loves his wife and is still attracted to her after 15 years of marriage, but just because she hasn’t gone under the knife for the sake of beauty, doesn’t mean that she forgoes other popular cosmetic procedures. Like the other “Housewives” Heather is a fan of Botox and injectable fillers. At age 27, Dr. Dubrow started injecting Heather with Botox and she has been getting Botox injections once a year since than. Although Dr. Dubrow insists that Heather is a natural beauty, she admits to regularly using Botox, cheek fillers and Sculptra to fill the lines around her mouth.
Would you consider Heather Dubrow to be a natural beauty, even though she admittedly has a face full of fillers and is a regular user of Botox?Tags: Sculptra, The Real Housewives of Orange County
How much money would you be willing to pay to look like your favorite celebrity? Claire Leeson has spent over $30,000 trying to look like her celeb-idol—who just happens to be Kim Kardashian. The 24-year old London resident says that after being bullied throughout school she wanted to do something about it—and apparently that something is literally, “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
Leeson says growing up kids told her she was the “ugliest thing alive.” When she saw the Kardashian show on TV she felt a connection—she came from a family with the same number of siblings, all which argued about the same sorts of things. She thought Kim was so beautiful and she immediately decided that she wanted to look just like her, no matter what the cost.
Unfortunately, Leeson is now up to her heavily smokey eyeballs in debt. All of the surgeries, make-up and other expenses to look like Kim have cost her so much money she can’t even afford to pay off her credit cards now. But when she finally does come into some money, Leeson already has plans for it. She wants to get butt implants—well, duh! You can’t be Kim without the booty, after all. For now, Leeson makes do with padded panties.
At least Kim Kardashian is human (at least somewhat). It gets a little scarier when people start trying to look like non-humans. While every little girl is told that Barbie is the most beautiful and perfect girl on the planet, woman that actually look like Barbie come off a little scary.
Despite the shock value, many women are spending thousands of dollars on plastic surgery, all in hopes of looking like a Barbie doll. Two well-known human-Barbie’s are close friends, Dominika Oleynik and Valeria Lukyanova. They are both from the Ukraine where they spend their days pretending to be like Barbie and teaching at the School of Out-of-Body-Travel. If you’re wondering, they charge $100 per session. In order to look like Barbie the pair has undergone many surgeries, they also follow strict diets, work out religiously, and use makeup and contact lenses (and photo shop) to enhance their real-life Barbie doll faces.
Ken isn’t left out, many men want to look like the plastic stud and are undergoing dramatic plastic surgery measures in order to do so. Move over Justin Jedlica and meet 30-year-old Rodrigo Alves. Rodrigo is from Brazil and has paid over $170,000 to look like a Ken doll. His surgeries range to include liposuction, lip augmentation, calf shaping, nose jobs, pectoral implants, and six-pack sculpting (isn’t that what the gym is for?).
On Rodrigo’s Instagram he describes himself as “A worldwide jetseter.” He writes that he lives in London, but parties in Vegas, goes to the beach in Miami, and shops in Dubai. So how does he have so much money? We don’t think he does—he’s actually a flight attendant, which would explain all of that “jetsetting.” At least he isn’t in debt like Claire Leeson (Kim Kardashian wanna-be), he says that he pays for all of his surgeries out of savings.

When Zendaya first hit the Hollywood scene in 2009 she was a fresh faced kid, with a unique look, that could sing and dance. Her talent and experience in singing and dancing made it easy for Zendaya to transition from modeling as a child to landing gigs with Kidz Bop and then Disney, as she entered her tween years. Zendaya’s career seemed to have hit a bit of a lull there, but then she appeared on Dancing with the Stars last year, sporting a whole new look.
Last year, at age 16, Zendaya competed on Dancing with the Stars and debuted a new, very grownup look, which seemingly was a hit, because it appears that her career has been jumpstarted and she is again entertaining multiple offers to star in TV shows and movies. So was plastic surgery behind Zendaya’s transformation, or did the teen grow into her looks and hire an amazing makeup artist? We think that it was a combination of both!
Zendaya started her career in Hollywood when she was barely 12 years old, and has since grownup in the spotlight, with all the awkward teen moments documented along the way. Now, at age 17, Kendaya has adopted a new look complete with dramatic makeup and posed facial expressions, which is a stark contrast from when she would appear in public without a stitch of makeup and a genuine smile. Makeup techniques aside, her transformation seems to be a bit deeper than that and it also looks like Zendaya has visited a plastic surgeon for a little refinement of her facial features.
When compared to pictures from previous years, it does appear that Zendaya has undergone rhinoplasty surgery to slim the bridge of her nose. The result of Zendaya’s nose job is great on its own, but she is also using contouring and makeup tricks to further refine her features in pictures.
All in all, we give Zendaya’s plastic surgeon high marks for a well executed rhinoplasty, but we do wish that teenagers who don’t need plastic surgery, like Zendaya, would stop having plastic surgery so young!Tags: singers, teenagers, under 20
Tulisa Contostavlos Claims She Hasn’t Had Plastic Surgery, This Time She’s Blaming Her Makeup Artist
When MC rapper Mike GLC admitted to selling cocaine to an undercover reporter, he caused big problems for his famous friend, Tulisa Contostavlos. Tulisa has now been in out of London’s Southwark Crown Court in hopes of fighting off claims that she helped broker the drug deal.
As Tulisa fashionably made her way into court to prove that she most certainly did not, a sea of hungry photographers stood waiting. You might expect her face to be swollen from crying, or her eyes dark or bulging due to lack of sleep—hey, going to court is stressful, even for celebrities! So the fact that Tulisa’s face appeared “puffy” according to media reports might not come as a surprise. Until you see the “puffy” appearance Tulisa’s face has suddenly acquired and realize it doesn’t look to be the result of crying. Instead Tulisa looks like she just had some fresh cosmetic work done—perhaps before going to jail, after all her Botox doctor won’t be allowed to come inject her on visitor days.
The former X Factor judge rose to fame back in 2007 as a promising pop star. Since then, it looks like lip fillers and a nose job have changed Tulisa’s appearance. She has always argued that these ‘rumors’ are untrue, but it doesn’t seem many are willing to believe her. And now, after her court appearance, even more rumors are circulating about the 25-year old.
Tulisa blames her changing appearance on everything but surgery, citing makeup techniques, and weight loss. Make-up artist to the stars, Mikey Phillips, agrees that Tulisa might be telling the truth. He believes that changing up her beauty regime could be responsible for enhancing the look of her face, and could even contribute to the ‘puffy’ look she came wearing to court. Using certain contour tricks Tulisa could change her look in many ways, including enhancing her cheekbones and elongating her nose.
But before you believe everything Mikey Philips has to say, take a look at old photos of Tulisa and you will quickly notice, that like any celebrity, she looks entirely different. Her hairstyle, clothes, and yes, even her makeup is 100% different.
Annemarie Gillett from Transform Cosmetic Surgery believes that Tulisa has had some work done. She can see the signs of injectable wrinkle treatments in her shiny forehead. Gillett also mentions Tulisa’s noticeably fuller cheeks and lips, which seemingly are too drastically changed for a lip gloss and bronzer to take care of alone.
