How Do Celebrities Influence Our View Of Cosmetic Surgery
In the world today, people are influenced by what they see and hear. Specifically, dress and appearance have become a major emphasis and concern in society today. Thus, when celebrities decide either for or against having liposuction or plastic surgery, their decisions can impact others. This article will discuss some celebrities who have had the procedure and how that affects everyone else.
Britney Spears, after having her second child received an abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck. This procedure makes the abdomen more firm. Those who generally choose this surgery have either just been through a pregnancy or have extra sagging skin from weight loss. Rather than resorting to healthy eating and exercise, this procedure can be a quick and efficient way to shed a few extra pounds.
Especially after pregnancy, women are often extremely self conscious about their appearance. If Britney Spears needs extra help to look her best after being pregnant, naturally more woman are apt to feel the same. In recent years the term “mommy-makeover” has become more common. This is a double procedure of breast augmentation and a tummy tuck after having given birth.
Many other celebrities are rumored to have undergone liposuction including Kelly Osbourne, Debbie Gibson, Jessica Simpson and Gene Simmons. Some celebrities undergo liposuction multiple times and put their health at risk. They want fast, effective results to have the perfect appearance for the big screen or record album cover.
Celebrity magazines can be harmful and misleading. Because of digital image manipulation, the images can be altered to be far from the truth. Thus, misrepresentations of celebrity’s liposuction procedures can be displayed. As a result, this can affect people’s view of the procedure–whether for better or worse. This could happen in the line at the grocery store or at the beauty salon.
Get the facts straight before making conclusions. Learn to be comfortable with the person you are, rather than going to the celebrities for every move you make. Be independent and be smart.
Because of the tabloids, people may be more inclined to have the surgery simply if they see a celebrity has had it done. However, thoughtful care should be placed into the idea of having liposuction. Be sure you have done all you can: eating healthy and exercising diligently. It is important not to let your views or actions be swayed by those who supposedly hold the “social power” in society–the celebrities.
