The patients and staff at Form and Face share a guilty pleasure: tabloid magazines and celebrity cosmetic surgery photos. It’s fun, as long as you remember that stories about celebrity face lifts, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation may be just that: stories.
Don’t let your eyes deceive you. Simply because you’re convinced that a celebrity looks like he/she has gone under the knife, doesn’t mean it’s true. Take the case of Brad Pitt and Life & Style magazine…
It Wasn’t Surgery, It Was Skin Care
Life & Style scooped its competitors when it broke the story that Brad Pitt was “consulting with top plastic surgeons.” Allegedly, his split from Angelina Jolie was so traumatic that he was left looking old and haggard. Haters were quick to pile on Pitt, saying that cosmetic surgery is no answer to an emotional problem. The haters were right. It was the story that was wrong.
It’s not the first time Pitt has been “outed” for plastic surgery procedures he’s never had. A decade ago, the media was speculating on whether Pitt had been nipped and tucked. He hadn’t. At that time he said,
“There’s too much emphasis on the exterior. People are too obsessed with their image. We shouldn’t be so consumed with plastic surgery, clothes, big pearly white teeth or what shampoo we use. It just sends out the wrong message.” – Brad Pitt
In both these cases, it turned out that Pitt was merely well rested and enjoying the benefits of professional skin treatments. He would be the first to admit, however, that he may consider cosmetic surgery sometime in the future.
Falsely Accused of Falsies: Celebrity Breasts
Male celebrities suffer the scrutiny of their faces and bodies. Female celebrities have the authenticity of their breasts called into question, even when they’re real:
- Halle Berry – accused of having had breast surgery, Halle was just enjoying the pleasures of a post-pregnancy bosom.
- Christina Hendricks – despite reports to the contrary, Mad Men’s buxom vixen is an all-natural 32-F.
- Miley Cyrus – the Disney good girl gone bad has often been accused of augmenting her assets. She maintains that her ample bosom is natural.
