Do you think today’s hot young celebrities are almost too perfect?
It’s probably not just in your head.
Popular Instagrammer Dana Omari is dedicated to her mission to stand out to the stars for her subtle plastic surgery procedures. His IGFamousByDana account, which currently has more than 200,000 followers, posts head-scratching photos of celebrities, models, and reality stars, often accompanied by references to their public claims that they have never worked. But how else can you explain her shrunken nose, changing eye shape, and evolving body types?
The stars, and their rabid advocates, will say that the changes can be attributed to things like weight loss and aging. But Omari, 32, a self-proclaimed nip / tuck detective who works as an office manager at a medical spa, doesn’t buy it. “Think about the people in your life that you know, when they have lost weight, how they have aged. They don’t change like crazy and in the span of a couple of years, unless it was a really intense weight loss or they did some work, you know? “
The same goes for the suggestion, sometimes offered by loyal fans, that high-profile women in their 20s, like 28-year-old Ariana Grande; Kendall Jenner, 26; and Kylie Jenner, 24, are still going through puberty. “If you are still in puberty at 25, there is something very wrong, you have to go to the doctor, that is not normal,” said Omari.
In fact, increasingly younger celebrities are undergoing surgery and undergoing procedures, including facelifts, generally associated with an aging clientele. Omari, a registered dietitian living in Houston, Texas, believes this is due to the pressures actresses and models face in today’s hyper-connected world. “We have direct access [on social media] criticize them, criticize them, congratulate them, whatever it is, and I think it plays an important role in wanting to look perfect or on Instagram at any time, “he said.
Omari is quick to point out that her tale is not about embarrassing anyone, with one exception.
“I feel very convinced to blame some of these celebrities, [particularly] people who are very inflexible in that they are natural when they are not, and / or they are selling something, ”he said. When it comes to leading women using their platforms and refined looks to sell products, be it multivitamins or skincare serums, she argues that it is unethical when they attribute their perfect looks to personal care and lifestyle choices. .
Instead, Omari wants the rich and famous to be more outspoken about their relationships with their surgeons. “All these people are very beautiful,” he said. “[But] they didn’t do yoga or water to get there. ”
Read on for five deceptive surgical procedures that are making their way into young Hollywood. None of the celebrities mentioned below have admitted to doing work (and some have publicly denied it).
The fox eye lift
How do today’s naive like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, 25, get that modern, optimistic look around the eyes, reminiscent of an Instagram filter? It’s not just good makeup, Omari said. Instead, actresses go for expensive “fox eye lifts,” also known as canthoplasties, in which the outer corner of the eye is surgically reshaped. “It changes the tilt of your eye, it makes your eye a little bigger, but when you pull it it makes it a little more tilted,” Omari said, adding that it costs about $ 5,000. She said it’s often paired with a surgical brow lift (priced from $ 3,000 to $ 8,000, depending on the surgeon and the face), which can also make the eyes look wider and brighter.
The ponytail facelift
Facelifts: Not just for clients of a certain age anymore! So-called ponytail facelifts, “the reason it’s called that is that it pulls very high at the temples, which can give you that lifted look,” Omari explained, are gaining ground with stars as young as 20 (she speculates that Bella Hadid and Ariana Grande have undergone this procedure, which can cost more than $ 100,000.) Unlike performing a facelift on an aging woman, Omari continued, “When you do it on someone whose tissue hasn’t moved yet because they are 20 years old, it pushes them beyond their natural starting point and gives them that look of fox eye ”, plus a strange smoothed appearance that can also be achieved, temporarily, with Botox and fillers.
When we think of celebrities undergoing hair transplants, we generally imagine a man in his 40s to 50s. But the signs of male pattern baldness can start when a man reaches his 20s, so Omari guesses that young heartthrob like 31-year-old Machine Gun Kelly have been proactive in undergoing this surgery early. “When you have a hair transplant, they are basically pulling live follicles from where you may not miss it,” said Omari, explaining that anyone who has had this done would have a well-hidden thinning on the back of their head, where the follicles were harvested. Another telltale sign? At first, the result “almost looks too good, it’s too dense in the same area,” Omari said, adding that this procedure can cost $ 10,000 or more, depending on the extent of the baldness. This unnatural thickness is due to “overplanting[ing] … it may not grow, so they transplant a little more follicles than you would have naturally had because some of them are not going to be taken. “
Small breast implants
Omari said Pamela Anderson’s Playboy bunny look is officially over, and women – stars and regular people alike – are looking for proportional increases now. “Most women, apart from perhaps during a very unfortunate period in the late 90s and early 2000s, go for a size that fits them well. That is the goal. If they are on the smaller side, or even if they are not especially thin, they usually do not go from lack of breast tissue to triple D. “Engineers like Kendall Jenner and Olivia Rodrigo, 18, who Omari believes have been made this procedure from $ 8,000 to $ 15,000, could be looking for “more projection, more roundness … and a naturalness-[looking] lift up, ”he said.
Sculptra body contour
Dermal fillers are popular for facial touch-ups, but a lesser-known application is using them to create curves. Sculptra, Omari said, “fills in by volume just like lip filler, but it also builds collagen, which can also affect size or shape and lasts about 3 years.” However, it is expensive, which is why Omari said it is more accessible to women like the Kardashians, who can afford to “spend $ 15,000 to increase their hips with Sculptra.” It is often used in conjunction with liposuction as “it can actually smooth out any dimples on your thighs, butt, hips, anywhere.” But for someone like Kendall Jenner, who is naturally quite slender, Omari speculates that her slim, hourglass look is all filler. But, added Omari, “it’s not permanent,” which is why for repeat customers the cost of maintenance can be especially prohibitive.
