The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) announced the findings of its annual survey last month. Among the top trends in facial plastic surgery was the influence of celebrity beauty on surgical requests. More surgeons reported an increase in requests for celebrity faces. The most in-demand looks in 2014 were:
- Angelina Jolie's lips and cheekbones
- Beyone's facial structure
- Kim Kardashian's eyes and jawline
- Brad Pitt's nose
- Natalie Portman's nose
"Some people are attracted to the power, fame and attention that being a celebrity brings," says Stephen S. Park, M.D., FACS, president of the AAFPRS. "It's important to remember that simply changing your appearance will not give you the same level of recognition. Celebrity photos are so often re-touched that their images are distorted which can result in unrealistic expectations that propel consumers to seek excessive or extreme surgeries."
