Word on the street, South Korea has some awesome plastic surgeons! In fact women that live in China, Japan, and other close regions are traveling to South Korea to completely change their appearance. So much so that on the way back home they are facing a big conflict of identity. Customs officials don’t even believe these women’s passport photos, and many are having troubles being granted access back into their home country. While in 2011, 2,545 people traveled to South Korea from China to have surgery, a whopping 25,176 people came to the country for surgery in 2013.
Since customs officials are confused, some docs are now offering a “plastic surgery certificate” for their patients to carry back home with them, this way if ones’ identity is doubted, they can prove they have just undergone plastic surgery to change their appearance.
Women come to South Korea for the good surgeons and high-class facilities, but there is also serious distrust in Chinese doctors. In China plastic surgery clinics are owned and operated by businessmen who then hire out doctors, this has created a system laden with shady business. Unfortunately, they are not enough good doctors to combat the bad businessmen. It’s a game of luck trying to find a doctor you can trust in China, some are so hell-bent on making money that they have made monsters out of people, destroying their natural appearance for profit and greed. Some women are so fearful of Chinese doctors they even leave the country to give birth. The Korea Times has addressed this issue, also citing the death of the young singer Wang Bei after going under the knife with a Chinese surgeon.
Not all South Korean surgeries turn out well. People are wondering why the Chinese reporter above went to South Korea for surgery, this botch job could have been done by anyone! She appears to love it though; to each their own!
Now that South Korea is boosting such nice plastic surgery facilities, it seems only natural that people will flock there–sounds better than ending up dead or maimed. Seems only ‘natural’ that women would rather go the same route as Angelababy, a popular celebrity in China known for her “goddess” status. Her look dramatically changed after a trip to South Korea, which subsequently skyrocketed her to fame—perhaps prompting many fans to travel to South Korea for some life changing facial tweaks of their own.

Why is it that every time Hilary Duff has some sort of relationship trouble, she shows up with over-inflated lips? The 26-year old singer split from her husband Mike Comrie earlier this year and immediately went out and got some serious lip injections to plump up her pout.
Is she just pouting because of her relationship whoas, or has Hilary had a lip augmentation? The fact that she can hardly control her newly inflated lips makes that answer pretty obvious: Yes, Hilary Duff loves her some lip injections.
Back in January 2013, the “Our Lips Are Sealed” singer was photographed again with a rather plumped-up pout, and it was photographed for all to see. Rumors started circulating that she had work done, likely in the form of fillers, while others said it was just the way the paparazzi captured her expression in the moment. We’ll let you judge for yourself…
There’s also been talk over the years that she had a nose job as well as breast augmentation. And while she’s neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, the before and after photos seem to point to Hilary’s love of plastic surgery.
Hilary and her husband have since patched things up and her lip injections have settled into a more manageable size, but we think she looks better without the lip fillers. What do you think?
We are used to seeing Alessandra Ambrosio in her Victoria’s Secret pushup bras, which give the illusion of cleavage, but never did we think that we would see the day when gorgeous Alessandra would fold and actually have plastic surgery in order to boost her cup size…
Alessandra is an incredibly successful supermodel and is regaled as one of the most beautiful women in the world, but apparently that is not enough in this day and age, as the supermodel recently decided to go under the knife and increase her bust size with breast implants.
Alessandra is Brazilian, and Brazil is where she decided to debut her breast implants when she attended Carnival this year. Wearing an extremely low-cut pink gown and a crown of flowers, the 33-year old supermodel seemed very pleased to show off her newly enlarged breasts. Plastic surgery among Brazilians is extremely popular and is even thought of as a socioeconomic status symbol, so we are not a bit surprised that Alessandra felt completely comfortable showing off her obviously augmented breasts while partying at Carnival in Sao Paulo.
Not more than a few months ago, Alessandra claimed to be too afraid to have plastic surgery, after a botched otoplasty when she was 11-years old. Clearly, she has gotten over that fear, because shortly after that interview was published, she went and had a breast augmentation!
What do you think of Alessandra’s new breast implants? Do you think she was pressured into it in order to keep her Victoria’s Secret contract? Or perhaps the mom to two young children decided to get a little “mommy makeover”? Whatever her reasoning behind having a breast augmentation, all in all we think she looks fabulous, and for going up at least two cup sizes, her implants almost look like they could be natural.Tags: models, over 30, super models, victorias secret
It’s no secret that there are many who go under the knife in order to have a body part that resembles that of a specific celeb. They go in asking for anything from their chin to their cheekbones, all in an effort to look like their favorite star.
Who are the top female celebrities with the most requested body parts? Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis, and Megan Fox top the list for eyes, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, and Christina Aguilera for lips, Kiera Knightly, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Lopes for chin/jawline, and Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, and Nicole Kidman for nose. For cheeks, it’s January Jones, Jennifer Garner, and Beyonce, and for body it’s Jennifer Aniston, Giselle Bundchen, and Penelope Cruz.
Missing from that long list is Jennifer Lawrence, but that didn’t stop one fan from getting $25,000 worth of plastic surgery to look like her. Kitty, a 30-year-old mom and dog trainer from Texas, got six surgeries in six hours to look like the starlet. The procedures included a breast augmentation, liposuction to her body and face, fat grafts to her cheeks and butt, and rhinoplasty. She also got a discount since her story aired on TV although it’s not been revealed how much.
Regarding why she had the surgery, she said, “The reason why I decided to get surgery is because post having my daughter, I wasn’t quite as comfortable with my body.” Her husband didn’t really think she needed the surgery, stating, “Jennifer Lawrence isn’t a celebrity that I have particularly strong feelings about one way or another. It’s totally her choice.”
So what does Kitty think of her results? She explained, “Of course I look like Jennifer Lawrence. I thought I had a resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence before my surgery and now I think after, my features are more refined to where they resemble her more.”

We all have something about our appearance we would like to change, for Cher Lloyd, it was her teeth; “I hate my teeth. I hate them, I look like a complete and utter rabbit.” She told More magazine last year before her dramatic smile transformation. It’s not just Cher’s teeth that are changing, after hitting it big on the UK version of X Factor Cher started spending the majority of her time in Hollywood, where body image and appearance has clearly rubbed off on the star and her ever-changing appearance.
2013 was a big year for Cher, she was married and released an album, singing some of her tracks alongside famous names such as Ne-Yo. It seems all of her dreams are coming true, and with or without rabbit teeth Cher Lloyd has become a household name. Although the public’s acceptance over her gap-tooth smile, which is often compared to Madonna’s, wasn’t enough to keep Cher’s own hatred for her teeth at bay. Cher has undergone cosmetic dentistry; recent photos reveal the pretty, petite songstress sporting a different smile, one without any sign of a gap between her two front teeth.
In her song titled “I Wish,” Cher has a line that goes, “I wish I woke up with a butt and a rack,” and although the singer claims she really does want these body parts, she claims she won’t be getting any plastic surgery to obtain them. Sighting her petite figure as reason enough to skip out on the Kim Kardashian booty. In her own words, “You’d see the arse before you see me and I’m not down with that.” For now she’s just fine wearing her padded bras, which Cher sites as much cheaper, although we doubt she’s really worried about money these days.Tags: singers, veneers
Steve Erhardt has spent $300,000 trying to look perfect, but he still hates taking pictures. Despite the 45+ surgeries he has undergone to perfect his image, he expects there will be more and plans to have a large celebration for his 50th cosmetic surgery. “I don’t like lines, I don’t like wrinkles.” He told Dr. Phil in an interview. Although he also admits that he doesn’t like a lot of attention, yet he uses his surgeries to score a lot of gawking! In fact, as a successful businessman, Steve worries that without all his surgeries his career would have ended twenty years ago.
Looking unnatural is not an insult to Steve who wants to look fake, prompting him to go after every surgery he can think of, including: solid silicon muscle implants throughout his body, liposuction under his check bones, coronal lift, feather lift, lower and upper eyelid reconstruction, 10 lip injections, facial tattoos (aka permanent makeup), Botox, and the list goes on. The doctor responsible for 42 of Mr. Erhardt’s surgeries is none other than Dr. Steven Hoefflin. When you think of Hollywood’s plastic surgery legends some of Dr. Hoefflin’s best patients come to mind, such as Joan Rivers and Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson’s string of surgeries began in 1984 after a bad burn on the set of a Pepsi commercial required skin grafting. Many cosmetic surgeries would follow, although Steve Erhardt says that his first cosmetic procedure with Dr. Hoefflin set the stage for Michael Jackson’s notorious cleft chin. Steve Erhardt says that he was the “guinea pig” for the procedure Jackson would later obtain.
When asked about his work on Steve Erhardt, Dr. Hoefflin claims that Steve demands so much plastic surgery because he has narcissistic tendencies, while this sounds like a direct insult to Erhardt, Dr. Hoefflin goes on to explain that, in his opinion, most people in our modern society are narcissistic and so this is normal and nothing to be concerned about. Although he doubts there is any surgery left to do on Erhardt, although Erhardt is already banking on the maintenance procedures he will require. It sounds like someone might be addicted to going under the knife; others argue Erhardt only wants attention. To these claims Steve simply says: “I’m not an attention whore, I’m very low profile”
Somehow, in between all of these surgeries, Steve has kept up with his Hollywood Secrets Haircare business, which must bring in enough cash flow to pay for his extensive list of surgeries, including breast implants…I mean pecs!
If you watch the show Pawn Stars you definitely know who Chumlee is. Formally known as Austin Russell, Chum stars on the hit TRUTV series playing himself, a slow sort of guy that keeps everyone around the pawnshop laughing (or yelling) over his never ending stupid antics and lazy ‘fat man’ personality. Instead of another dumb move, everyone is now talking about Chumlee’s recent weight loss.
In the beginning of Pawn Stars Season 1 the whole crew was fat, father (Rick Harrison), son (Corey Harrison), and friend Chumlee. Yet at as the show scores more seasons and the crew collects their riches, they all seem to be getting slimmer and slimmer…
Just last weekend Chum showed off his sexy new curves at the Hard Rock pool in Las Vegas. Now listen ladies, it’s not like the guy is packing a six pack or any sort of ‘figure’ but it’s a grand improvement from the 100+ pounds heavier he used to be! None of the ladies at Hard Rock seemed to mind, coming from all over to flirt with the reality star—and while his weight loss helps, we doubt these girls would have cared either way.
Chum probably knows this and might not even care, according to him he’s becoming concerned with his own health because he doesn’t want to end up short-changed like his own father, who died at only 54 from pancreatic cancer. Although rumors surfaced recently that Chumlee was dead at only 31 from a heart attack, thankfully shortly after Chum took to his Twitter account to dispel these rumors, tweeting: “May we live long, Rich forever.”
In order to continute living his new rich life, Chumlee has lost over 100 pounds by eating well and going to the gym 6 times a week. “I drink a juice smoothie every morning.” He adds, causing any Pawn Star fan to cock their head, remembering a once fatter Chumlee that couldn’t diet for more than one day.
Chumlee has been tight with the Pawn Stars family for a long time. Rick Harrison, part owner of the shop, even hired Chum and his son Corey to run a Quizno’s sub shop franchise for a while. I can actually see Chumlee making sandwiches in one of those black aprons! He won’t be caught making sandwiches now though, Chumlee is shedding pounds and getting fresh with the ladies, catching up on all of those years he never got laid.
Roseanne Barr recently walked the red carpet at the NBC Universal Summer Press Day in Pasadena, California, on April 8 and stunned fans who were shocked by her dramatic weight loss!
The former sitcom star, who was decked out in a black top and pants, leopard print gloves, and silver heels, looked quite svelte. When asked what her secret was, she joked, “Crack!! I’m doing crack!” before following up with, “I’m just doing the things you’re supposed to do…you know, moving more, and eating less.”
Fans have obviously been showing her the love as she tweeted out, “Hey, thank you guys so much for all of the nice words about my weight loss! I’m inspired 2 keep going!”
The 61-year-old has been the brunt of many jokes about her weight over the years, especially since she became a public figure from her Roseanne sitcom days as well as her marriage to former co-star and now ex-husband, Tom Arnold, who himself has faced numerous comments about his weight. However, since last year, he’s lost around 100 pounds as well.
Barr once weighed more than 350 pounds, but initially lost quite a bit of weight in the late 90s thanks to gastric bypass surgery. She reportedly gained some of the weight back, but appears to be back on track to slimming down even more, this time going the more natural route of using diet and exercise rather then relying on weight loss surgeries.
