Plastic Fantastic: Celebrities and Surgery

The growing trend of young women undergoing cosmetic surgery to be 'more beautiful' is explored in our Australians Exposed documentary, Plastic Fantastic.

Nowhere is the pressure to look good more intense than under the the bright lights of Hollywood. Open any gossip mag and you’ll find plenty of celebrities that are clearly enjoying a little nip or tuck here, and a lift or suck there. There’s even an online ‘Plasticopedia’ - a database of celebrities who’ve had cosmetic surgery – both rumoured and confirmed!

While some celebs choose to deny they’ve been under the knife or had less invasive procedures like botox, a quick glance at photographic evidence leaves little doubt these starlets have made a vist or two to the surgeon. You be the judge!

Heidi Montag

By the ripe age of 21, the reality TV star already had a nose job, lip implants and a boob job. However, it was two years later when Heidi infamously made headline news after undergoing a staggering total of 10 procedures in one sitting. At the time she told People magazine, “I’m beyond obsessed.” More recently, Heidi has admitted she regrets the dramatic transformation, “When I look in the mirror today, I don’t really know who I see.”

Sophie Monk

The Aussie singer started dabbling with her appearance after moving to LA to pursue an acting career - and even dated a plastic surgeon. Sophie recently admitted to having collagen injections in her lips and Botox around her eyes and forehead, and there’s also a rumoured boob job. She told Who magazine, "I should have said no, but I trusted the doctor."

Megan Fox

While the young actress has been under a lot of scrutiny about having cosmetic surgery as well as her dramatic weight loss, the rumour mill went into overdrive after her Jonah Hex movie premiere in 2010. Megan looked ‘plastic’ and ‘unnatural’ with experts in the field citing procedures such as cheek and lip augmentation and rhinoplasty on her nose – which appeared finer at the bottom and completely bump-free.

Donatella Versace

Since taking the business over from brother Gianni, the 55-year-old Italian fashhion mogul has undergone some dramatic changes to her face – in particular to her lips. While she always had a pronounced pout, after years of augementation combined with she’s started to look more freaky than fab.
