As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in NYC, my job is to help my patients achieve a certain look they desire. I encourage my patients to be as specific as possible with me about the type of look that they are trying to achieve.
It follows, therefore, that my patients often use celebrity body types as examples. No one says to me, “I want to look like X”. Rather, they say “I want lips like X, and breasts like Y.” Patients now dissect celebrities into specific body parts.
It reminds of that scene from Weird Science where they input data into the computer and out pops a beautiful figure of Kelly LeBrock. What are the most common celebrity body shapes on people’s wish list?
Face Procedures Most Wanted
• Lips – Angeline Jolie and Scarlett Johansson
Both actresses sport full lips. Scarlett seems to have upper and lower lips that are equally full, while Angelina has a more “pouty” look with a fuller lower lip as compared to the top. These looks can be achieved temporarily with injectable fillers such as Restylane or Juvaderm. For a permanent solution, I insert a soft solid silicone permanent lip implant.
• Nose – Jessica Alba and Nicole Kidman
These noses as slim, have thin skin, and typically have a well-defined nasal tip. Achieving this look may require a rhinoplasty that breaks bones to narrow the nose, and trimming of tip cartilage to give a non-bulbous tip.
Celebrity Body Shapes Most Wanted
• Breasts – Halle Berry and Jennifer Aniston
Both women sport full breasts without any drooping. Most women seem to point to that mystical “Full C” as the desired cup or bust size. In small breasted women, this would require breast implants and large breasted women will require a breast reduction. Women who have good volume, but whose breasts are now sagging, will require a breast lift.
• Buttocks – Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez
Big backsides are back! Remember those days when everyone wanted that small petite butt? Now women want volume to the backside. This can be achieved with fat transfer. What I do is meticulous liposuction from the areas around the buttock – the hips, thighs, and lower back. Then I process this fat, isolating the individual fat cells, and then inject this fat into the buttock. The result – a fuller, firmer, and lifted backside.
• Legs – Jennifer Aniston
Long, smooth, defined and slim legs. While most of this is genetic, meticulous liposuction can remove fat from the arms and thighs and externally applied radiofrequency systems such as Reaction from Viora can tighten skin and reduce visible cellulite.
• Abs – Fergie and Gwen Stephanie
It is hard to not want a firm six pack abdomen or toned waist. While diet and exercise are key, careful liposuction can remove extra abdominal fat and help bring the underlying muscles to the surface to give a more defined waist.
So, with the latest in surgical and non-surgical procedures, it may now be possible to get that similar body shapes as celebrities.
How to Achieve a Body Shapes like the Stars JLo, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce
In the world of cosmetic surgery, it is common for patients to specifically request the body shapes of a Hollywood Star – not the actual body shape in a Dexter sort of way, but that their body part be altered to resemble someone else’s.
When it comes to buttocks, leading the list of most requested are Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce. While genetics probably has the most to do with it, a good combination of liposuction and fat transfer can help my patients of plastic surgery at my office in New York City.
A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to improve the backside. The term is a slight misnomer because little is done to actually “lift” the buttock. What actually accounts for the improved appearance is a careful balance of liposuction and fat transfer.
By making some parts of the buttock smaller and other parts larger, the result is an improved shape and the appearance of a lift. Simply adding volume to the buttock will make the buttock larger but will do nothing to improve the overall appearance.
This procedure has been gaining popularity in my practice of cosmetic surgery in New York City. My preferred technique involves carefully removing fat from the lower back. This creates a “scooped” appearance to the lower back and helps to make even the flattest backside pop.
Next, liposuction is performed on the hips, outer thighs, and back of the legs. By sculpting these areas around the buttock, the buttock is given a pleasing shape that makes it stand out from the rest of the body.
Additionally, that small little inverted triangle up on the top of the buttock (think about the shape of a thong) is sculpted with liposuction. This is very powerful at creating shape.
