“I want to look like that”: Celebrities that you didn’t know who had plastic surgery and injectables

You might be surprised to find that many of the celebrities you grew up watching or admiring on television have had a little bit of help from plastic surgery or injectables. 

More celebrities are coming forward to share their experiences of going under the needle or knife to get a more defined jawline, or perhaps add some bounce to their step. 

Many of your beloved celebrities may appear as though they were born with flawless facial features and glowing, dewy skin. But, the truth of the matter is that many celebrities have wrestled with their own insecurities, yearning to improve or change a few features with some help from plastic surgery and injectables. 

It used to be taboo to talk about getting work done, but these days, many celebrities are shattering the social norm and inspiring everyday women to consider getting a minor or drastic change. Showing pictures of their physical changes are deeply impactful and moving for everyday women who are considering getting plastic surgery. With surgical advancements and board-certified surgeons, you can be assured that you are in good hands at Aventura.

 Check out our list of five celebrities who have undergone surgery or injectables with fabulous results that have altered their lives in a positive, impactful way: 

Naya Rivera

“Glee” actress Naya Rivera chronicled getting plastic surgery done at the age of 18 in her memoir, “Sorry Not Sorry.” Rivera saved up and used the funds from her acting roles on “Family Matters,” and “The Royal Family,” to pay for $8,000 worth of breast augmentation. For Rivera, the investment for breast implants was a choice she has been happy and grateful for. “People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than ten years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have even been the best $8K I’ve ever spent,” Rivera told People Magazine. 

Kris Jenner

 

In an episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” business guru and “momager” Kris Jenner shared her experience getting a facelift. She has also shared her past surgeries and is no stranger to talking about plastic surgery. Jenner is clearly rewinding the aging process with grace and elegance. “I have not worked on Kris but it’s evident that, through the years, she’s had a facelift. Without one there would be a more noticeable occurrence of the aging process,” Dr. Tim Sayed told Radar. There are also rumors that Jenner has probably had a neck lift, bilateral upper and lower blepharoplasty, Botox, and/or fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, according to New York plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Schaffner. 

Kaley Cuoco 

 

It doesn’t hurt to look and feel good is Kaley Cuoco’s motto. In 2016, “The Big Bang Theory” actress talked to Women’s Health Magazine about the various plastic surgeries she’s gone through to feel confident and happy about her physical appearance. In addition to sticking to an intensive exercise routine, Cuoco also casually talked about getting a nose job, breast augmentation and injectable fillers around her neck. 

“Years ago, I had my nose done. And my boobs—best thing I ever did. Recently I had a filler in a line in my neck I’ve had since I was 12. As much as you want to love your inner self…I’m sorry, you also want to look good. I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing,” Cuoco told Women’s Health. 

The lesson we’ve learned from Cuoco is although beauty is skin deep, it’s okay to turn to fillers and plastic surgery to feel your absolute best. 

Lisa Kudrow

“Friends” actress Lisa Kudrow is always full of laughs. She’s that friend (no pun intended) who will always be there to cheer you up when you don’t exactly feel good about the girl staring at you in the mirror. That’s why she’s a proponent of plastic surgery and is not ashamed about having undergone plastic surgery. Kudrow dealt with many insecurities in high school and wanted to alter her physical appearance to feel better about herself. She decided to make a life-changing decision at the age of 16 by getting a nose job before transferring to another high school. “That was life-altering. I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous,” she said. “…[There were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change,” Kudrow said. 

 

Angelina Jolie 

Though it isn’t immediately noticeable, actress Angelina Jolie has undergone plastic surgery to change the appearance of her face in a subtle way. There is evidence of possible rhinoplasty as her nose has been slightly altered. And then there are rumors of her voluminous lips getting some attention from injectables for the fullness. A few years ago, Jolie also shared with the New York Times that she had a double mastectomy done due to her being at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. After the preventative surgery, Jolie later decided to get a “breast reconstruction with implants,” according to Health-inspiring women to not only take preventative measures to reduce the risk of breast cancer but to also consider a follow-up reconstruction to feel confident and beautiful post-surgery.
