February 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #101: Celebrity Plastic Surgeons

Tip of the Week

"No, really," says the famous cosmetic plastic surgery expert on the talk-show circuit, "I enjoy working on ordinary people." You know you're in for twenty minutes of name-dropping. Many doctors who perform celebrity plastic surgery have photo testimonials from their famous clients in their clinic (though you should "Beat It" if one is from Michael Jackson). Testmonials are the only way you can see results for yourself--just be sure that the celebrities are ones whose looks you admire.

If you want to find out if the surgeon you're considering has performed plastic surgery on your favorite luminary, be warned: There is such a thing as patient confidentiality still. Many facial plastic surgery experts distance themselves from celebrity, to avoid compromising patient care. You may be stonewalled if you pry. Also, plastic surgeons may be concerned that you're starstruck and not objective. You can try showing the surgeon a photo of the particular celebrity.

If the surgeon recommends against changing your chin to look like Candice Bergen's, don't just dismiss the advice--even if the surgeon just happens to have a photo testimonial from Candice Bergen. But if you see your surgeon on the celebrity talk-show circuit, think twice about your choice. If the surgeon cares about you, your concerns and your health, that's real star power.
