  • Dr. Anthony Youn, Plastic SurgeonPlastic surgeon Anthony Youn has a keen eye for figuring out what plastic surgeries different celebrities had done. A series regular on Dr. 90210, Dr. Youn’s expert opinions on celebrity plastic surgery are often quoted in national magazines, including In Touch Weekly, US Weekly, Life & Style, The National Enquirer, and others. We caught up with Dr. Youn and gabbed about everyone from Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Catherine Zeta Jones, to Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Paris Hilton, Hilary Swank, Barbara Walters, and other stars. With Dr. Youn, you’re always in for some surprises.

    MMH: What is your main specialty in your practice?

    Dr. Youn: Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. I also perform a small amount of reconstructive plastic surgery.

    MMH: What are the main innovations that you see in the techniques and procedures that you specialize in?

    Dr. Youn: The top plastic surgeons are always trying to get better, more natural results with less downtime and less scarring. In many cases we can rejuvenate the entire face with all hidden or invisible scars using techniques like endoscopic browlifts, transconjunctival blepharoplasty, and facial fat grafting.

    MMH: One of the hottest rumors making way is whether or not Jennifer Anniston had a breast augmentation. Recent photos of her at the People’s Choice Awards on January 9, 2007 revealed a more buxom looking version of Jen. What do you think about this rumor and can you speculate about any previous rumors that she had a rhinoplasty or chin augmentation?

    Dr. Youn: I have seen no evidence that Jennifer Aniston has had a breast augmentation. It is simply amazing what push-up bras can do these days. It does appear that she has had a rhinoplasty in the past, before her time as a star on “Friends.” There doesn’t appear to be any evidence that she’s had a chin augmentation, however. There is a very recent report in US Magazine that Jennifer had a rhinoplasty performed in Beverly Hills on January 20th of this year. My blog: www.celebritysurgeryblog.com, has a post on this.

    MMH: What do you think about Nicole Kidman’s look? What procedures did she have done?

    Dr. Youn: Nicole Kidman has undergone some minor changes over the years. Foremost among this is that she appears to show the classic “Botox brow.” Her eyebrows have become more arched with time, almost giving her an angry look. This could be the result of Botox injections to decrease the wrinkles in the forehead.

    MMH: Speaking of Nicole, what do you think Tom Cruise had done in recently besides his well-publicized nose job years ago and braces for his teeth?

    Dr. Youn: I don’t think that Tom Cruise has had plastic surgery, although like most metrosexuals I expect that he grooms himself well, takes good care of his skin, and may have had some minor chemical peels and laser treatments. He appears to be aging very gracefully.

    MMH: Do you think his wife Katie Holmes had anything done yet?

    Dr. Youn: Recent photos reveal that Katie may have had a rhinoplasty sometime at the beginning of this year or the end of last year. I was interviewed by the National Enquirer about this recently, and these photos are scheduled to be printed in an upcoming issue.

    MMH: Do you think Britney Spears had a tummy tuck? If she didn’t have a tummy tuck, do you think she would benefit from one? Is it safe to say that Britney Spears had a boob job? Is there anything else that you speculate she had done?

    Dr. Youn: The belief that Britney Spears had a tummy tuck at the same time of her C-Section is ludricrous. The best time for a tummy tuck is at least 6 months after the birth of a child, since it is important to let the uterus contract down in size (as well as the tummy) to allow as much extra skin as possible to be removed. I have never seen any plastic surgeon perform an abdominoplasty on a patient at the same time they gave birth. In addition, the infamous upskirt photos that have popped up all over the internet show what appears to be a C-section scar and nothing more.

    There is a possibility that she may have had breast augmentation back in 1999 or 2000. Her bust size appears to have changed a lot over the years, but this may be mostly due to having two children and the breast changes that go along with that. Millions of women around the world can attest to this!

    MMH: Name actress(es) that you think have the best breast jobs in Hollywood?

    Dr. Youn: Scarlett Johanssen was recently voted “best breasts” in a poll by In Touch magazine. It’s difficult to determine if she has implants, but I doubt it. Second in the poll was Jessica Simpson, and third was Salma Hayek. All appear to be naturally well-endowed.

    MMH: What actress(es) do you think had poor breast augmentations?

    Dr. Youn: A lot of the adult film actresses have had breast augmentations where the implants don’t match their body frame. Unfortunately, implants that are too large can lead to complications including ‘bottoming out.’ The bigger the implants, the more unnatural they can often look.

    MMH: What actor(s) do you think had great facelifts and what actor(s) do you think had poor facelifts?

    Dr. Youn: I think Barbara Walters looks very good. She is in her 70s but looks like she’s in her 50s. It’s not the most drastic of results, but looks very natural. Most people probably have never realized that she may have had a facelift!

    It is very important to address volume changes that occur as a face ages. This was something that I learned from my mentor, Dr. Richard Ellenbogen. Facelifts which do not address lost volume can make a person look tight, pulled, or done. An example of this is Joan Rivers. Addition of volume to her face using fat grafting can make her look softer, fuller, and more natural.

    MMH: Do you think there is any truth to the rumor that Catherine Zeta Jones had a breast augmentation recently? What else do you think did she have done?

    Dr. Youn: The photos of Catherine Zeta Jones do appear to show a possible breast augmentation. Her weight has fluctuated, however, and these changes in weight can fool people. I do not think she has had any other plastic surgery done. She is aging very well.

    MMH: What’s real about Paris Hilton and what’s fake (besides her brain)?

    Dr. Youn: Some people think Paris has had a breast augmentation. It seems that every time she wears a push-up bra some website is proclaiming that she’s had implants placed. There are no obvious signs of plastic surgery to me, although there are rumors that she may have had some corrective eyelid surgery. It’s difficult to tell, however. While some have issues with how she carries herself, she is a naturally pretty woman.

    MMH: Is there any truth to the rumor that Hilary Swank had a breast augmentation?

    Dr. Youn: The photos that I’ve seen do appear to show a breast augmentation in the recent past.

    MMH: Do you think Angelina Jolie had a nose job? What about any other procedures?

    Dr. Youn: The photos that I have seen make me believe that she has had a rhinoplasty quite some time ago. Her nose looks great. Her lips appear to be naturally full, to the chagrin of millions of women around the country. She may get some injections to them to aid in plumping them up, but there are no obvious signs of this.

    MMH: Do you think Harrison Ford, Jack Nicholson, and Robert De Niro had any work done? If so what do you think they did?

    Dr. Youn: I see no sign that any of these three classic actors have had plastic surgery. They appear to be aging gracefully. Like many, I am eagerly awaiting Indiana Jones 4.

    MMH: Do you think actresses such as Julianne Moore, Selma Ward, and Rene Russo are aging naturally and managing to stay beautiful with no cosmetic intervention? If any have had any work done, please specify about each actress.

    Dr. Youn: These actresses, like the actors above, appear to be aging gracefully and without plastic surgery. I would assume that they are taking care of their skin and using the right products and creams, but I doubt that plastic surgery is a significant part of their anti-aging regimen.

    MMH: What do you think of Tara Reid’s breast and liposuction re-do following her botched procedures?

    Dr. Youn: I commend her for coming forth and revealing her plastic surgery struggles with the media. She has found an outstanding plastic surgeon to fix her unsatisfactory work, and has done the public a great service in coming forward with her story. She has encouraged many women to do their research in order to find a reputable plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

    MMH: Do you think plastic surgery queens Demi Moore, Cher, Sharon Osbourne, and Joan Rivers can stay looking good for many more years or will they hit a point soon and start getting diminishing or negative returns from their cosmetic upkeep?

    Dr. Youn: The question with anti-aging plastic surgery is when to stop. This is up to the surgeon to determine what he or she can do to make a person look better naturally. If there is nothing more that the surgeon can do then the surgeries must end. Some of the celebs above appear to have gone overboard with their work (Cher and Joan Rivers), while other look fantastic (Sharon Osbourne and Demi Moore). All of them should think about not having any more surgery for a long, long time.

    MMH: Do you think Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt had any work done?

    Dr. Youn: I read a report on one website that Johnny Depp may have had a threadlift performed. That procedure has very limited results, so whether or not it was actually done we’ll probably never know for sure. Brad Pitt is aging gracefully like Tom Cruise.

    MMH: Can you share any celebrity plastic surgery secrets that the media has yet to pick up on?

    Dr. Youn: The media is very savvy to celebrities having plastic surgery. A lot of the best work is done on stars before they make it big. This is when the surgery usually stays secret. There will always be something new and better on the horizon, and the stars will likely be the first ones to try it out.

    MMH: What is the most requested celebrity look that you get from your patients as far as breasts, nose, lips, abdomen, legs (i.e. I want Angelina Jolie’s lips, etc.)?

    Dr. Youn:

    • Breasts : Jessica Simpson, Halle Berry
    • Lips: Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johannsen
    • Nose: Halle Berry (I’ve even had some ask for Michael Jackson! I turned them down for surgery)
    • Buttocks: Jennifer Lopez and Vida Guerra

    MMH: Given the universal interest in celebrities, why do you personally enjoy speculating about celebrities and what they had done? Why do you think the public is so interested in knowing these celebrity secrets?

    Dr. Youn: Celebrity plastic surgery speculation is an interest of mine ever since I was in one of the most prominent practices in Beverly Hills. Since I am now in Michigan, it gives me an opportunity to stay in touch with what many of my colleagues back in Hollywood are doing. Because some of the top cosmetic plastic surgeons are in Beverly Hills, assessing the quality of their results helps me to focus on achieving that same outstanding level of plastic surgery in my own patients.

    The public has always been interested in everything about celebrities, whether it is what they are wearing, who they are dating, or what surgery they’ve had. It’s a way for the public to focus on people who may be different that they are.
