There’s finally a bit of good news for kids getting bullied in school: they may be eligible for free plastic surgery! In one of the stranger and more deplorable practices in our society today, an organization called “Little Baby Faces” is offering cosmetic procedures for bullied kids, free of charge. While this may seem like an honorable move at first glance, parents should note that the service isn’t aimed only at correcting disfigurements caused by bullies. In one story, a young girl teased because of her “big ears” scores a plastic surgery consultation through Little Baby Faces and leaves with a long list of her physical imperfections.
At the age of 10, Nadia Ilse finally asked her mom if she could get plastic surgery to have her ears pinned back, after enduring years of bullying by kids who called her “Dumbo” and “elephant ears.” Through the Little Baby Faces program, Nadia was able to correct the minor problem that had been plaguing her for more than seven years. However, the plastic surgeon in Nadia’s consultation encouraged the 14-year-old to get not only surgery to pin her ears back, but surgery on other imperfect facial features as well. As the surgeon said to Nadia, “I love thin chins, but I don’t want them as pointy as that chin.” And he didn’t stop there. He also recommended surgery on her nose, in order to repair the asymmetrical features that he said would become more pronounced once her ears were pinned back, even though Nadia never noticed or mentioned these “imperfections.” What gives?
While offering the 14-year-old an all-expense paid trip to New York for a free otoplasty surgery is commendable, you have to wonder, what are the implications of putting self-conscious kids under the knife? And why did the plastic surgeon have to talk Nadia into a rhinoplasty and mentoplasty, in addition to the procedure she was planning on having? More importantly, what happens when Nadia gets a little older and decides that she doesn’t like her stomach or thinks that her breasts are too small? How much more likely is she to opt for plastic surgery now that she’s already undergone three procedures before the age of 18? The whole situation just seems like a plastic surgery nightmare waiting to happen. After all, what is Little Baby Faces marketing, minor surgical procedures or little perfect faces? I’m sure that Nadia is loving all of the attention that her free plastic surgery has garnered, but in the long run this is a hugely negative thing to do to a teenage girl.Tags: free, Nadia Ilse, teens
Kyle Richards recently tweeted a family photo, which included her sister Kim after she had plastic surgery. It has been widely reported that Kim Richards had a nose job in June, but what the hell happened to the rest of her face?
The 47-year old reality star, who completed treatment for an alcohol addiction this year, decided to get a nose job because her nose was something that always bothered her. Shortly after Kim had the surgery on her nose, she attended a family event, and her sister Kyle posted a candid family photo, in which Kim looked very different…But not in a good way! Kim’s nose definitely looked different, but her entire face looked swollen and puffy. So did Kim Richards get more work done then she’s fessing up to? Or, was the picture that Kyle posted taken before all of the swelling had gone down from the nose job?
More recently, Kim Richards attended the grand opening of her sister’s new boutique, “Kyle by Alene Too”, and she posed for the cameras looking much more like her normal self. It looks like Kim’s nose is still swollen from the surgery, but it appears that she has also recently had filler injections in her cheeks and a modest helping of Botox, most notably around her eyes.
Kim’s result after plastic surgery is far from dramatic, but you have to wonder if a woman with an addictive personality, fresh out of rehab, should really be getting plastic surgery? Sounds like a recipe for disaster! Hopefully Kim Richards won’t trade her alcohol addiction for plastic surgery addiction.Tags: nose, over 40, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, reality stars, rehab
Gwen Stefani attended the Teen Choice awards last weekend, and walked the pink carpet looking her usual: gorgeous and stylish. But what’s up with her lips? Her top lip has suddenly swollen to twice the size of her bottom lip! Uh oh, has glamorous Gwen finally gone overboard with the plastic surgery?
We love us some Gwen Stefani, so don’t get us wrong, we think she looks amazing, but Gwen has definately had her fair share of cosmetic procedures. With that said, we think that the 42-year old singer/fashion designer/mother has had some of the best plastic surgery in the business. The only problem is that you can’t look 29 forever. Plastic surgery can only hold back time for so long and Gwen is nearing that magic age where good plastic surgery can start to go bad. Mid-40′s seem to be when the plastic surgery illusion starts to fall apart for some of our favorite celebrities (Courtney Cox, Madonna, Janet Jackson, etc), so is Gwen going to fall into the same fate? Or will she ween herself off of the Botox and filler before it’s too late?
Currently Gwen is getting regular Botox and filler injections, and while she usually looks perfectly natural, her plastic surgeon went a little over the top when he pumped up her top lip prior to her appearance at the Teen Choice Awards. Oops!
Here is video of Gwen and No Doubt performing “Settle Down” at the Teen Choice Awards (the first time that No Doubt has performed together in over 10 years!):
Over the weekend, Zooey Deschanel attended the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, and she looked, well…unusual? Zooey, who was a nominee for “Choice Female Fashion Icon”, was dressed is a drab blue Monique Lhuillier dress, which she paired with boring black pumps. But, even worse than her outfit, was her face! It’s pretty obvious that the 32-year old actress has recently had a little plastic surgery, and the results aren’t that flattering, if you ask us.
Zooey’s lips have recently been injected with filler and she’s sporting a much puffier pout than she used to have. In addition to the new lips, Zooey looks like she’s also had filler injections in her cheeks and what appears to be a botched Botox job. Her normally adorable face seems awkward and her usually pretty smile looks forced and unnatural.
Looks like Zooey may have been feeling a little insecure about looking her age at the Teen Choice awards and went a bit overboard with the plastic surgery, a little too soon before the event! In addition to the Botox and filler, Zooey has also had rhinoplasty surgery, but that was a couple of years back, and it actually looks quite well done! (She should’ve quit while she was ahead…)
After seeing Zooey Deschanel’s latest result after dabbling with plastic surgery, I think she needs to swear off of the Botox and filler. She’s starting to remind me of plastic surgery disaster Rose McGowan…

Following in the footsteps of your mother and older sisters is one thing, but what about when it comes to plastic surgery? Chantal Marshall and four of her daughters have already had thirteen boob jobs among them, and now the 53-year-old professional psychic is pressuring her fourteen-year-old daughter to get breast implants too. After having undergone four boob jobs of her own, Chantal is now a size 32 GG; Emma, 30, is a 32GG after three procedures; Terri, 27, is a 34HH after three; Tara, 26, is a 34F after two boob jobs; and Ripley, 21, is a 32DD after one. At 14, Britney is the only female in the family without fake boobs, but probably not for long!
“Britney’s the brainy one and does quite well at school,” says her mom. “But she already dyes her hair blonde and wears lots of make-up and tans. It’s only a matter of time before she starts saving for new boobs.” According to Chantal, Britney idolizes her older sisters and has already discussed getting a boob job with her mom, who hopes that she follows in her sisters’ footsteps. Apparently Chantal thinks that paying a plastic surgeon to give you fake boobs is something to aspire to. “I really love the fake look of my girls and I know Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older. I love the idea of us all looking similar and glamorous.” Yes, that’s 53-year-old Chantal talking, whose saggy stomach and cottage-cheese thighs are perfectly accentuated by her bikini and heels in this disturbing family photo.
Chantal, who has four sons in addition to her five daughters, had her first boob job in 1996 to repair the toll all those pregnancies took on her body. Since then, she has clearly been deluded into thinking that getting multiple boob jobs will somehow turn back the clock. “When I hit the town with the other girls I’m often mistaken for their sister. It’s a real laugh.” That is a real laugh, especially since she looks at least 100 years older than the rest of them. Although Chantal is the oldest of “the family with the most boob jobs in Britain,” Terri is the one with the biggest boobs. Watch out for that one. She looks like she’d go right ahead and eat you up.
Let’s hope that poor Britney is indeed “the brainy one” and chooses to forego the breast implants that her delusional mother is trying to push on her. If I was Britney, I would take one look at my mother and sisters and plan on doing the exact opposite of whatever they’ve had done. And it sounds like Britney may feel the same way. When interviewed by Glamour magazine, Britney said she feels like she is too young to be thinking about breast implants and would rather focus on her education and working hard so that she can be the first one in her family to attend college. “I just want to work hard at school. In the past I thought I have wanted fake boobs, but then sometimes I look at them and think they look ridiculous”. It sounds like 14-year old Britney is already smarter and more mature then her mother and sisters put together, right?

Several news sources have themselves in a tizzy over Kristen Stewart and photos of her that reveal what appears to be new breast implants!
So did she or didn’t she? Did Kristen Stewart get a boob job?! Well, let’s rewind here for a sec…
Kristen Stewart attended the Comic Con convention in San Diego over the weekend, and wore a super cute outfit: high-waisted yellow pencil skirt with cut-off plain white tee (plus barely visible black bra) and high top sneakers. Of course paparazzi were shooting Kristen like crazy and of the thousands of photos that where shot of the Twilight actress, one candid photo, caught in the right light and at the right angle, appeared to show the actress with slightly larger breasts than normal…OMG SHE GOT A BOOB JOB!
Uh, or not.
After reviewing the full set of photos of Kristen at Comic Con, you would have to be an idiot to say that Kristen got a boob job. She looks exactly the same as she did before. So to answer the question: Did Kristen Stewart get a boob job?! Nope. Kristen Stewart is still au natural and looks fabulous in our opinion!

Is it just me, or are Adrianne Curry’s breast implants on upside down?
Adrianne showed up to the San Diego Comic Con, dressed as Christie Monteiro from the 90′s video game “Tekken”, and showing some serious under-boob! Adrianne, who has been booted from Comic Con for scandalous costumes before, got breast implants in 2008, and it appears that they are still one of her favorite accessories…

Contestants on the hit TV show “Biggest Loser” are left with more than just new-found confidence after losing hundreds of pounds and debuting a newer, slimmer self on national TV – they are also left with loads of excess skin. Not only are loose folds of skin left behind after dramatic weight loss unsightly, but they are also unhygienic and may even lead to health risks like rashes and chafing. What do most “Biggest Loser” contestants do to get rid of this excess skin, you ask? Plastic surgery of course! Take season 11 winner, Olivia Ward, for example. Over the course of five months, Olivia lost of total of 129 pounds and went home with the the $250,000 prize for losing the most weight of all the contestants on the show. But that wasn’t the end of her weight-loss story. Weighing in at a much slimmer 132 pounds, the 35-year-old then opted for a tummy tuck to get rid of the excess skin her drastic weight loss left behind, and she decided to get a breast lift as well.

While a healthy diet and a strict fitness regimen can improve a person’s health and help tone muscles, these positive lifestyle changes do little to shrink skin that has been stretched beyond repair by excess weight. Unfortunately, this means that many individuals who lose 100 pounds or more are left with loose skin on the back, abdomen, arms and legs. To remedy this issue, many “Biggest Loser” contestants opt for plastic surgery procedures like tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), arm lifts (brachioplasty) and breast lifts with augmentation to boost their confidence and improve their silhouette.
Even “Biggest Loser” contestants who don’t win sometimes turn to plastic surgery to improve their look. Amy Cremen of season 6, for example, lost 104 pounds, only to discover that she was more uncomfortable in her new body than she was in her overweight body. She decided to undergo numerous plastic surgery procedures to complete the transformation, including a breast lift with augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction on her inner and outer thighs. And she’s not the only one! Shannon Thomas of season 7 decided on an arm lift, tummy tuck, liposuction and breast surgery; Erik Chopin of season 3 underwent a full body lift (to the tune of $35,000!) and Danny Cahill of season 8 opted for a tummy tuck and gynecomastia surgery.
It’s not uncommon for “Biggest Loser” contestants to use part of their winnings to fund cosmetic surgery procedures, especially if their new-found weight loss leaves them with unsightly flabby skin. But will it end there? It’s not hard to imagine that some “Biggest Loser” contestants may like the effects that plastic surgery can have on their appearance just a little too much, possibly returning in the future for a nip here and a tuck there. Amy Cremen has admitted that if she decides to get more plastic surgery in the future, she will return to the same doctor who performed her previous procedures. And Helen Phillips, who lost 140 pounds and was crowned the season 7 champion on “Biggest Loser,” underwent not only plastic surgery procedures to rid herself of excess skin, but also opted for a breast lift, breast implants, a tummy tuck and rhinoplasty (nose job), because it was something she “always wanted.”
It just doesn’t seem right that individuals who not only commit to a new diet and exercise program, but ultimately adopt a new way of life in order to shed the pounds, would still need cosmetic surgery to be happy with their new image. Let’s be real – it’s not hard to get behind “Biggest Loser” contestants getting tummy tucks and arm lifts to avoid the health risks and physical appearance of loose skin…but a nose job? Seriously? Why not throw a chin and butt implant in there too, while you’re at it? Plastic surgery is a slippery slope folks, and it seems like “Biggest Loser” contestants may be the most likely to slide.Tags: Amy Cremen, Erik Chopin, Helen Phillips, reality stars, Shannon Thomas, The Biggest Loser, weight loss
