Around this time last year rumors about Dean McDermott, Tori Spelling’s husband, hit the news wires, as well as Tori’s heart. In 2013, Dean reportedly had a one-night stand with a woman named Emily Goodhand. Clearly, this news came as a big blow to Tori, who has already dealt with a lot of let downs in her life.
As a result, Tori might finally be ready to fix her botched implants, as well as undergo a number of other plastic surgeries.
One insider reveals that Tori “doesn’t feel good about herself” and worries that her appearance caused Dean’s infidelity. As a result, Tori is now considering getting plastic surgery on her breasts and face.
Despite the rumors, Tori and Dean seem to be patching up their marriage, at least for the cameras. Tori told Extra TV that her and Dean are “doing really well.” Yet, Tori’s own reality show reveals a world of doubt behind the brave face and positivity. Plus, insiders close to Tori say her self-confidence remains rather shaky.
To bring some truth to these insider revelations, on her reality show, True Tori, Tori visits Dr. Ashkan Ghavami to see if some nip and tuck procedures can get her feeling better about herself.
For years rumors have circulated over Tori’s botched implants. On the Lifetime reality show, Tori admits, “Me going to the doctor is a big step.” In the past Tori has had a nose job, and two boob jobs, but her breast implants are now 15-years old. Tori originally got her breasts done when she was in her twenties, and now, at 41, she thinks it’s time to have them fixed.

One source close to Tori told US magazine, “She hit a rough patch with her self-esteem due to Dean’s cheating. She doesn’t feel good about herself and wants to do something.”
Still, another source says that Tori is still plenty “confident” and instead wants to have her breast implants fixed due to health concerns, which are addressed in her televised consultation with Dr. Ghavami.
Dr. Ghavami told Tori, “Your scar tissue is like, ‘I don’t want this thing, I want to squeeze this thing out.” He goes on to add, “I wouldn’t be surprised if you had a little micro-rupture.”
While reports say the mother of four worries about being put out under anesthesia, if she does go through with getting a new boob job other procedures might follow. According to reports from an insider that spoke to US, Tori is also considering Botox and a face-lift to help with her “crisis of confidence.”
You can’t hide from the truth with cameras following you around all day. In the final episode of True Tori, Dean is seen storming out of a therapist’s office after Tori starts attacking him for finding a new babysitter without her approval. During the same session Dean calls Tori out for her trust issues regarding him, and Tori tells her therapist that she does not think her husband will ever change.
It doesn’t sound so good for these two, and I doubt new breasts and a face lift will do the trick, but we will just have to wait and see.Tags: over 40, reality stars
Barry Manilow has been releasing catchy hit songs since the seventies. Over the years he has also written a number of commercial jingles for big name brands such as, Band-aids, Dr. Pepper, McDonalds, and more. The successful singer, songwriter, and producer looks very good for his age, and according to him it has nothing to do with plastic surgery.
Despite his objections to plastic surgery rumors, the gossip continues to surround Manilow’s wrinkle-free face. Manilow finds it all rather annoying and has criticized rumors that he has had work done, saying that he is adamant about aging naturally.
Just last month Manilow was once again asked about his impossibly flawless face. In response he told UK talk show host Jonathan Ross, “It’s infuriating. This is me at 70. I swear. Really, this is what I look like. I don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.”
Manilow, who is actually 71, has been facing speculation related to plastic surgery for many years and he isn’t the only one. It’s practically a natural part of being a celebrity, to be accused at some point or other for going under the knife. Ageing celebrities, like Donatella Versace, and youthful younglings, like Kylie Jenner, have all been recent victims of the plastic surgery blame-game.
Despite all of the rumors and seemingly clear proof, many celebrities love to deny going under the knife. But is Manilow telling the truth? Is his flawless face just a product of great genes?
Many disagree. For one, it is often argued that Manilow’s cheeks are too puffy to be natural. Manilow, who seems to have a logical rebuttal for everything, says his plump cheeks are related to his steroid injections used to control chronic hip issues due to an injury back in 2006 when he tore the cartilage in both hips—ouch!
Still, you can’t forget about those rumors back in 2003, sparked after Manilow was seen leaving a plastic surgeon’s office in Beverly Hills, California with surgical wrap secured beneath his chin. It was said that he underwent an upper and lower facelift at this time.
Looking at before and after photos of Manilow over the years it’s clear he may have had something done. And who in Hollywood hasn’t at least tried Botox injections? After all, the pressure to remain beautiful and youthful is incredibly strong and ever present among celebrities of all ages.
So the question remains, do you believe Manilow, or you do you think he’s definitely gone under the knife?

Donatella Versace is no stranger to plastic surgery. The 59-year old iconic fashion designer has undergone pretty much every procedure possible to enhance her looks and maintain her youth. Yet just last month while at Fashion Week Winter 2015 in Sao Paulo, Donatella looked different once again.
Above: Donatella at November Fashion Week in Sao Paula shows off a more youthful look.
Over the years Donatella’s face has been introduced to lasers, injections, and surgical knives, and it appears she has had some work done once again. At Fashion Week she was looking a bit more youthful, and I have to say it… a little less scary.
Above: Recent photos of Donatella looking less youthful prior to Fashion Week.
Hollywood Life spoke to several plastic surgeons about Donatella’s latest look. Dr. Steve Fallek dished that Donatella has, “Pretty much had it all. Botox, fillers, lasers for the skin. Minimal recovery time for those, though there can be some redness of the skin for a few weeks with laser therapy.” These are not the only procedures Dr. Fallek believes Donatella has undergone. He also thinks she has had a face, brow and eyelift.
Clearly this wouldn’t be Donatella’s first face lift. Dr. Fallek adds, “There are some risks with multiple face lifts but most involve skin loss. Anesthesia not so much a problem if she’s had success before.”
In 2000 Donatella looked much different than she does now. Of course, everyone naturally ages and as a result their appearance changes, but when you have piles of money to spend on endless plastic surgeries, appearances have a tendency to change even more than they would ordinarily.
Above: Left, Donatella in 2000. Right, Donatella in 2014.
According to plastic surgeon Dr. David Rapaport, there have been major changes in Donatella’s face since 2002. As of now he believes, “…her face seems to have more artificially defined fullness where now her lips seem to be over inflated. Most recently, it seems very clear that she has a facelift scar that I can see in front of her temple area you can see a fine linear scar.”
Dr. Rapaport believes Donatella has never had her nose worked on; instead her main go-to surgery appears to be the face lift. As a result, Dr. Rapaport says her hairline has now been lifted too high above her ears.
Perhaps having too much money to play with at the surgeon’s office is not such a good thing. Then again, maybe some people prefer Donatella’s look to a more naturally aged face. What do you think?
Aside from the visible scars that she hates, the after effects of Heidi Montag’s countless plastic surgeries reach more than just skin deep. In a candid Interview with Extra, Heidi reveals what life is like today dealing with the painful side effects, such as TMJ disorder, related to spending $30,000+ changing her body and face 5-years ago.
When Heidi Montag first made an appearance on The Hills almost everyone thought Lauren Conrad’s bubbly, petit blonde best friend was downright adorable; everyone except for Heidi herself that is.
Above: Heidi pictured back in the day when The Hills first became a popular TV show, and the innocent blonde was free of any plastic surgery.
As soon as Heidi skyrocketed to fame, and started receiving hefty-sized paychecks (she was reportedly being paid close to $100,000 per episode), she signed herself up for one plastic surgery after another.
In 2009 Heidi had 10 surgeries in one day, spending $30,000 on a second breast augmentation, liposuction, a second nose job, and having her ears pinned back. Instead of reality TV, Heidi became known as the Queen of Plastic Surgery, and not in a good way.
Based on appearances, the adorable blonde didn’t really need any work done at all. Not to mention, these days her and Spencer could really use the money she spent achieving an entirely altered look. In an interview with Extra, Heidi admits the reason she did this to herself. “I disliked myself so much. I literally chopped up my own body.”
At first it seemed like a good idea, and Heidi certainly got a lot of media attention for her surgeries—something her and Spencer were hell-set on collecting back when the couple made regular appearances on the cover of weekly magazines. But now that Heidi is living a quieter life out of the public spotlight she is stuck dealing with many negative drawbacks to her cosmetic alterations.
Above: Despite all of the drama, it appears Heidi and Spencer are still going strong and enjoying their life together, more now than back when they had wealth and fame.
Heidi says that all of the fame caused people to write, “the meanest and nastiest things” about her online. As a result she became highly insecure. Only now she says, “I wish I’d known what I was signing up for.” While Heidi is still a gorgeous girl, she will always be dealing with the repercussions related to her surgeries.
As a result she never wants to go under the knife again. Last year she did have to get a breast reduction. Heidi says, “My implants were falling through. They were three pounds each so I was really miserable. Obviously, I didn’t want to go back into surgery, but it was really necessary.”
Above: Left, Heidi showing off her massive breast implants poolside in Las Vegas. Right, a more recent photo of a happier looking Heidi after her breast reduction last year.
Her breasts were an easier fix than other alterations. Back in 2009, Heidi also had her chin reduced, but no one warned her just how bad the drawbacks from this surgery could be. Heidi now suffers from TMJ disorder, a condition that causes many chronic side effects including a lot of jaw pain. She says, “I was in so much pain, I actually thought I was going to die.”
Looking at old photos prior to any plastic surgery provokes a type of nostalgia that can get Pratt feeling down. “Sometimes it makes me a little sad because I see not only what I look like, but who I was.”
The experience has caused Heidi to reflect, learn, and grow. As a result she plans to age gracefully from here on out and never have any cosmetic alterations again. The real Heidi is still in there, and despite all of her plastic surgeries and related struggles, at least she still looks beautiful. Unfortunately, her reputation with the world still remains tarnished at best…
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Gee, I would love the thighs of a 250lb body builder, but without all of that bothersome and healthy working out…”? Well apparently, not only do woman in Brazil actually want this, but they are willing to risk death and debilitating side-effects by getting black market Hydrogel injections to pump up their legs.
Brazilian model, Andressa Urach, is the latest to be left fighting for her life after the massive amounts of Hydrogel that she paid to have injected into her thighs, began to spread throughout her body, causing serious health problems.
Five years ago, at age 22, Urach underwent the procedure to inject 14 ounces of hydrogel, which is essentially a liquified plastic, into each of her thighs. Last month she entered the hospital, where doctors meticulously tried to remove the Hydrogel from her legs, but this procedure is nearly impossible, since the Hydrogel easily spreads throughout the body and attaches itself to fat, tendons and muscle. Not surprisingly, complications and infection set in and the 27-year old model is now in the Intensive Care Unit, fighting for her life.
Hydrogel is legal to use in Brazil, and is typically used to fill wrinkles and for other small applications on the face, but it is to be used in very small doses. The recommended dose of Hydrogel is 2ml, so the 400ml used to inflate Urach’s thighs, exceeds the recommended dose by 20,000%! Of course, in order to get the sort of result that Urach was looking for, would not be done by a licensed professional doctor, so she turned to the popular underground market to get what she wanted: Huge thighs that would almost win her a Miss Bumbum Brazil title! In 2012, Urach was the runner up in 2012 Miss Bumbum Brazil. Close to the $20,000 prize for the Miss Bumbum title, but even if she did win, the prize money wouldn’t even repay Urach for what she has spent on plastic surgery in order to become a Brazilian “model”.
Today, Urach began to breath again on her own, but she is still in critical condition and remains in the ICU. The condition of her “model perfect” body remains to be seen, but judging by the extent of the procedures she underwent to save her life, it’s not unlikely that she will be permanently disfigured. She’s truly lucky if she simply gets to keep all of her limbs. Amputation and even death is not uncommon for someone in her position. Worth it?Tags: Brazil, Hydrogel, thighs
Sara and Emma Koponen were born identical twins 25-years ago, although for these two ‘identical’ wasn’t enough. The pair is so obsessed with remaining exactly the same they have spent somewhere around $24,000 on plastic surgery.
The pair’s surgeries include matching boob jobs to transform their A-cups to E-cups. The former small-breasted women had to upgrade their chests slowly, in fact it took 3 separate boob jobs to get their breasts this large.
Of course, the first thing any man should look at is a woman’s smile, not her breasts. And so the twins have also spent plenty of money on lip injections in order to score the same plump pout.
In an interview with Barcroft Media, Sara said, “We are both addicted with modifying our bodies – but we have to make sure we both do the same things otherwise we won’t match. We are obsessed with surgery and the pursuit of perfection — for us there’s no such thing as too much.”
But wait, it gets better. The Swedish twins, now living in Italy, also want to stay the same exact size. In order to do so they hit the gym and work out together everyday for 2-hours, and they also make sure to eat exactly the same food at exactly the same time.
Pictured above: The innocent years growing up as twins.
While the Koponen sisters share clothes and a cell phone, they do not share a boyfriend—unlike another set of identical twins we wrote about a while back, Lucy and Anna DeCinque.
The end goal for these two is to look like artificial dolls. Sara says, “The work we have done is for us — it’s not about getting men to like us, it’s about becoming our idea of perfection.”
While these two are far from finished molding their bodies, when the time comes to have children they don’t want their kids following their lead. While Sara admits she is proud of her own body and personal decisions, she doesn’t want her future child to get into the obsession of plastic surgery. She warns, “You will never be happier – that’s the point. You will always want more. If you start, you will never stop.”
Despite their pursuit of identical perfection, you can still clearly tell these two apart.. so what do you think, who looks better?
Well, Madonna is at it again…The over-the-hill pop star is once again getting naked for a provocative photoshoot, this time for Interview magazine.
Now don’t get us wrong, we love Madonna! But at 56-years old, we would like to see something new out of her. Getting naked and being “provocative” has been her go-to pony trick since she started posing nude in 1977, when she was just 18 years old. Plus, does anyone really want to see a 56-year old woman topless and trying really hard to be sexy? Granted, Madonna’s breasts aren’t 56-years old, thanks to a nicely done set of breast implants, but, nope…I’m still not into it.
Madonna’s Interview cover, and nude photoshoot comes on the heels of the topless photoshoot that Keira Knightley just did for Interview Magazine as well. Ironically enough, Keira Knightley did her topless shoot to showcase what she looks like au natural, sans Photoshop and digital retouching. Madonna, on the other hand, has been obviously retouched, both digitally and by the hands of a plastic surgeon.
Madonna was interviewed by David Blane for the issue, where she talks about prostitution being the the most important profession in the world and recounting trying every drug out there.
Some are calling Madonna’s latest Interview Magazine spread “edgy”, but what do you think? I kind of think the Madonna topless thing has gotten a bit old (figurative and literally!)…Tags: Interview Magazine, nude, topless
Kim Kardashian’s curves have always kept us guessing—what’s real and what’s fake? Thanks to Kim’s life being displayed on TV over the last years, we know many of Kim’s cosmetic alterations but there are still a number of unanswered questions.
After Paper Magazine released nude photos of Kim K, doctors everywhere were being asked to speculate further about her unnaturally round bottom—among other assets.
On November 14th, just 3 days after Paper Magazine released Kim’s naked body to the Internet, the hosts on The Doctors spoke out about the pictures. Dr. Andrew Ordon made sure to mention her body doesn’t reflect hard work and dedication in the gym, a special diet plan, or great genes. Instead, the reconstructive plastic surgeon says Kim has undergone fat transfers and implants to achieve her level of curves. Dr. Ordon said, “That does not occur in nature like that. Not even in Brazil.”
In fact, not even a Brazilian butt lift could help a woman achieve these results. According to multiple plastic surgeons, in order to get booty this fat and a waist so thin, it takes implants, liposuction and fat injections.
Pictured above: Remember what Kim Kardashian looked like before she was famous, back when she was Paris Hilton’s pet?
Kim’s trainer, Harley Pasternak, defends his high-paying client, making sure to let the world know Kim does hit the gym. Her and Kanye West are said to work out together in order to help motivate one another. Pasternak says he spends a lot of time working with Kim to tone and tighten her whole thigh and butt area.
Plastic surgery alone isn’t going to give you a stellar body; a good figure also takes a considerable amount of drive and dedication, and not to mention gym time. So while it’s clear Kim does work out, it’s also clear that Kim wouldn’t look anything like she does today if she only went to the gym, and ate well. Her regimen is clearly enhanced with trips to the local plastic surgeon.
According to Dr. Basil Pakerman, a Manhattan surgeon who specializes in Brazilian butt lifts, “Kim has had enhancement for sure.” He says, pointing to the top portion of her larger than life butt, “That’s one of the incision points we use to inject fat during procedures.”
Kim isn’t the first star to undergo such lengths for a bigger behind. Way back in 2000, Jennifer Lopez reportedly had her booty enhanced in a similar procedure prior to performing the video for “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” Both Kim and Jennifer, among many other celebrities, have likely undergone fat injections. Fat injections start off by removing fat via liposuction from the stomach, thighs, and/or hips, and then relocating this fat to all portions of the butt.
You might be wondering if the photo editors over at Paper Magazine might have something to do with the star’s non-existent waist and super sized rear. The magazine does admit retouching parts of the photo, but they are adamant that they did not take away or add to her figure in any way. Paper Magazine editor, Mickey Boardman says that what you see is what you get, her butt is not padded or edited. Meaning photographers and editors did not give Kim her extreme hourglass figure, but instead some tight-lipped plastic surgeon did.Tags: butt shots, over 30, reality stars
