Despite looking “fabulous” right after giving birth, Kim Zolciak recently revealed her tummy tuck. The reality star is open about her plastic surgery and showcased her latest procedure on social media.
36-year old Kim Zolciak has had four babies in the past three years and has still managed to remain an enviable size 4 figure. According to Kim, working out is mainly responsible for her fit physique, as she enjoys the occasional bacon-enhanced Bloody Mary.
“Just so you guys are aware of how fabulous I was before my tummy tuck!” she captioned a before-and-after photo on Facebook. “This picture on the left was taken a few months after I had the twins and before surgery! A plastic surgeon is NOT the cure all!”
Still, although she was slim and had a flat stomach, Kim still opted for a tummy tuck as part of a necessary hernia repair—a fact she shared with fans who may have doubted her reasons for going under the knife.
“I had a hernia I needed repaired as well as my muscles so don’t get it twisted for you lazy asses that sit on the couch And think I look this good from a surgeon you are now set straight! enjoy!!” she continued. “Take a look at the placement of my Belly button before and after! I gotta give it to @drhochstein he gave me a cute belly button.”
Kim works hard to stay looking good, a fact that she frequently reminds fans of when she posts revealing photos of herself.
“it’s me alllll F—KIN ME haters ..every last bit is ME!! Zoom in real f—kin close too… I dare you… no photoshopping!!” was the caption she used when she shared a teeny tiny bikini photo.
The mother of six is no stranger to working out or plastic surgery. Shortly after her twins were born, she was seen working out with her professional athlete husband.
“I’ve been working out with my husband, he kicks my butt,” 35-year old Kim told ABC News. “The mind of an athlete is like no other. This man is incredible. We have everything you could dream of to workout, he pushes me and when it starts to burn, I wont quit and he won’t let me.”
“I was back in my jeans pretty quickly. I don’t know how much I weigh, but I know I’m back in my clothes,” she added to ABC News. “I still have a bit of muffin top when I wear my jeans, but nothing too bad.”
When she debuted her post baby body initially, Kim was adamant that she hadn’t had a tummy tuck in the delivery room.
“I don’t know what doc wud do major surgery the day u deliver but I have NOT had a tummy tuck!”
And the wig loving Atlanta socialite is no stranger to plastic surgery either, openly admitting to getting breast augmentation. Now it seems that Kim has finally followed through on her plans to have a tummy tuck—so maybe she is also done having kids?
Since becoming a mom, Kim Kardashian seems to be obsessed with dropping the pounds that she gained during pregnancy. Although she may still have a ways to go until she reaches her goal weight, Kim’s initial weight loss happened so quickly that some experts believe she had some plastic surgery help by way of a liposuction procedure.
Kim Kardashian West is well known for her love of visiting the plastic surgeon’s office to help her get the look she wants. And according to experts, she may have taken her desire to look good too far this time, dropping 30 pounds in just two weeks, according to The National Enquirer via Radar Online. Apparently, such a sudden drop in weight could mean that the newlywed is suffering from malnutrition.
“This amount of weight loss in such a short time is extremely dangerous,” said weight loss expert Dr. Aaron Tabor, who estimated the reality star’s weight loss based on recent photos.
Dropping that amount of weight in such a short time period is very difficult to do on one’s own. Which is why the expert thinks that Kim may have used liposuction to help her out.
Not that Kim would ever cop to plastic surgery of course. Instead, she might show off her newly svelte figure and attribute the weight loss to a new diet or fitness routine.
Dr. Tabor tells The Enquirer, ““Patients could have liposuction to achieve that much weight loss this quickly, and claim to have a very low-calorie diet as a cover story, so I wouldn’t rule that out.”
Not that losing weight really fast is a good idea that should be emulated.
Tara Gidus, RD, who is the team dietitian for the Orlando Magic tells The ENQUIRER, “Losing so much weight so quickly puts [Kim] at risk of losing muscle mass and dehydration. Crash dieting suppresses the immune system and increases her risk of illness. In other words, she’s suffering from malnutrition.”
33-year old Kim has been detailing her weight loss journey to fans and Radar Online has shown the reality star’s efforts through boot camp classes, swimming lessons and butt crunches.
In the past, Kim has shown off her crazy attempts to lose weight, including sporting a corset like device. Via her continual Twitter updates, Kim showed off what looked to be a thinner waist in a Whats A Waist waist training device earlier in the summer.
Then too, experts feared for Kim’s health saying that the device could crush Kim’s organs and rearrange her ribs.
Kim has never admitted to plastic surgery in the past and she’s unlikely to now, with the new weight loss rumors. Instead, Kim claims to rely on makeup and contouring techniques to change her appearance, although on her family reality show she does occasionally visit a skincare clinic to use laser treatments to get rid of stretchmarks or cellulite.
Although Kim looks slimmer and very different from before her relationship with her current husband, she likely won’t be revealing why anytime soon.none
Since openly undergoing a plastic surgery procedure on her family’s original reality show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, reality star Kate Gosselin has been fighting rumors of plastic surgery. The rumors have once again reignited as Kate’s face has once again changed, becoming even tighter and younger looking, despite her hectic schedule of media appearances and being a single mom.
39-year old Kate Gosselin seems to constantly be trying to reinvent herself and get back her 5 minutes of fame that ended when her reality series did.
Kate has lost her famous skunky-looking hairdo in favor of more youthful hair extensions and has also been working out like mad if photos are to be believed. But some feel that she has gone even further in retaining her youthful looks, and may have had a facelift despite being on the young side for the invasive procedure.
New Jersey-based plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Fallek – who has not treated Kate – tells The National Enquirer via Radar Online, “I think her face looks tighter and that she’s had a facelift.”
“Injectables alone would not create that smooth and contoured jaw line and chin.”
“It appears that her skin has been lifted along the sides of her face very skillfully without creating an overly pulled look.”
“It’s an excellent facelift!”
Whether or not Kate has had a facelift seems questionable, given her age. Most facelift don’t happen until the mid 40s at the youngest, when the skin has become quite lax, especially around the jawline.
However, it does seem likely that Kate has used Botox and fillers at the very least to help fill in pockets caused by having such a large brood to handle as well as Botox to get rid of perpetual frown lines.
Likely noting her dramatic hair extensions that resemble another star, Michigan-based plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn said Kate looks like a “young Jessica Simpson,” and said she also appears to have gotten Botox and other fillers to smooth out her wrinkles. “I suspect she had Botox injected into her forehead to smooth frown lines,” said Youn. “And a filler called Juvederm [was] injected into her nasolabial folds, which are the lines running from her nose to the corners of her mouth.”
Of course this isn’t the first time that Kate has faced rumors of a facelift after looking especially good.
Back in 2011, Kate blogged her response in a post that has since been removed. Although she denied having a facelift, she did thank fans for thinking she looked refreshed.
“With all the buzz about me having had a facelift, I will confirm that I have not had one.”
“But I will take all of the talk about how rested and young I look as a compliment! So thanks!”
Since leaving reality television, Kate has been through a messy divorce with her ex, Jon Gosselin, with crazy accusations being publicly made on both sides.
Whether or not Kate has been under the knife, it seems pretty agreed upon that she is looking good these days.none
EJ Johnson, son of basketball legend Magic Johnson, announced that he would be undergoing gastric bypass surgery on the season 2 finale of E!’s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. Now it has been a few months since the procedure and EJ is proudly showing off the results.
22-year old EJ Johnson is a busy guy as an NYU student, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star and noted fashion blogger. And now he’s busy losing weight, inspired by other stars that have taken the same steps.
EJ told Entertainment Tonight that he reached out to Star Jones for advice about the procedure. Star famously underwent the procedure back in 2003 after tipping the scales at 307 pounds.
“She told me that it was definitely a tool for a whole new life,” EJ says. “It was not something that was the easy way out by any means. This is not something that you do and then all of a sudden everything is gone and you’re skinny and you’re a new person. It’s definitely a tool and something that you have to work at.”
And how does his famous father feel about his son’s decision?
“He was 100 percent supportive of course,” EJ said when asked his dad’s thoughts. “He supports me in everything that I do. He’s been one of my biggest cheerleaders.”
But what really matters is how EJ feels now that he has lost weight.
So far, EJ says he feels “amazing” and explained that doctors removed about 80% of his stomach, making it the size of a banana.
EJ isn’t the first male reality star to open up about his decision to live a healthier lifestyle beginning with plastic surgery. Pawn Stars’ Corey Harrison recently showed off his weight loss with the help of surgery, inspiring his costar Chumlee to also lose weight. And bespectacled celebrity chef Graham Elliot also lost a great deal of weight via surgical means.
After drastic weight loss, many stars go under the knife for plastic surgery in order to help improve their appearance even further. Star Jones lost so much weight that is suspected that she had a tummy tuck to help flatten her stomach and also had a breast augmentation in order to replace lost volume in her bust.
EJ likely won’t be opting for a breast augmentation, but he may consider some plastic surgery, such as a tummy tuck to flatten his stomach or a brachioplasty (arm lift) to get rid of excess skin on his arms. He may even need some further reduction on his chest, which will require gynecomastia, liposuction to get rid of any man boobs that remain after his weight loss is complete. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson famously underwent the procedure after he had retired from wrestling the first time in hopes of acting without such a large chest.
If EJ does go under the knife on the next season of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, he will be in good company with other cast members. Brendan Fitzpatrick underwent a hair transplant and is waiting to show off the results, while his girlfriend Morgan Stewart is said to be contemplating a nose job.
UsWeekly has announced that four years after leaving reality television for her own spinoff and series, Bethenny Frankel is going back to her roots. The healthy living diva will appear on the seventh season of The Real Housewives of New York.
Despite leaving the show for her own self-titled cancelled daytime talk show, producers are reportedly hoping that Bethenny Frankel is able to boost the ratings, which dropped considerably the last season, by bringing back her fans.
The benefits are mutual however, as by appearing on the show Bethenny will have yet another way to promote her growing empire of Skinnygirl products, including a cocktail line, shapewear, and several books, including a new children’s book, Cookie Meets Peanut. The new foray into children’s literature was inspired by Bethenny’s own daughter and dog duo.
Bethenny had originally left RHONY shortly after her daughter was born, saying that she didn’t see “any reason to go back.” Bethenny then went on to have her spinoff series as well as a daytime talk show and has been in a bitter divorce battle, which was only recently rectified.
When Bethenny first left the show, it was reportedly over some drama with her then-costars. Since then, the cast of RHONY has changed a lot, with the original ladies only making occasional appearances.
What hasn’t changed is the cast’s devotion to plastic surgery, including Bethenny herself.
During her stint as a talk show host, Bethenny used her program to talk about celebrity plastic surgery whenever possible, including her own experiences under the knife.
The 43-year old native New Yorker admitted to having a breast augmentation in order to improve her saggy 35-year old breasts, but that the procedure didn’t help and actually made the situation worse.
“He told me there would be big lollipop scars if I got a lift. Being single at the time, I wasn’t comfortable with that idea. He told me he could instead put in a small implant that would give me a lift – not as much as a real lift would but at least a little bit of a lift. So I did it.”
But with the implants, Bethenny explains, “They were still saggy – only now they were bigger! They were saggy and gigantic. I was so uncomfortable. I don’t think your breasts should be the first thing people notice when you enter a room.” Bethenny wanted another surgery to remove the implants – but as a struggling chef, she didn’t have the funds. That all changed in 2008, when she appeared on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City. “The minute I had the money, I was like, ‘Let’s do it.’”
Now, Bethenny is happy with her breasts but she still protests against other rumors of plastic surgery. Bethenny is prone to being very thin, which somehow makes her forehead a very prominent feature and very smooth, similar to the appearance that one gets after Botox injections.
According to Bethenny, the rumors are false because she rarely uses Botox but might consider the injectable in the future.

GQ magazine just released its first ever Age-issue and who better to front the cover than Tom Selleck? The Magnum P.I. star looks almost the same as he did when he rose to fame back in the 1980s, and in the accompanying interview, he talks about how he stays so darn good looking.
69-year old Tom Selleck was chosen as one of five “modern gentlemen” to discuss how live well. In the interview, Tom talks about everything from his famous mustache to his thoughts on Homer Simpson, with some good advice and plastic surgery opinion in between.
Speaking about his mustache, Tom says that for men looking to grow one, you either got it, or you don’t. And in case you were wondering, he doesn’t have a name for it, but he doesn’t mind being dubbed the “godfather” of the mustache as the facial seems to be making a comeback these days.
“Go through puberty. Very important,” Tom joked. And if you still can’t grow one after that, you may be out of luck. “Ashton Kutcher told me…’I can’t grow one,’” the actor recalled. “Part of that’s genetic. You either got it or you don’t.”
And although he is known for his natural rugged good looks, Tom says that while he hasn’t spent any time under the knife so far, he isn’t opposed to getting a little “help” in the future. As long as the results are good and don’t interfere with his ability to work.
“I’ve never done it. That’s not to say I won’t,” the Jesse Stone star told the mag of plastic surgery. “I don’t have a problem with it as long as it’s not just vanity…I don’t have anything really against it, if I can look at it as a tool and not a kind of narcissistic manifestation of vanity, which it probably is anyway; but I do think there’s a difference between that kind of vanity and your work,” he said. “If it allows you to do your job and be accepted in a larger variety of things, I think it’s okay.”
Tom may be more familiar with plastic surgery than he lets on, even if it is not personally. Commentators have noted that although Tom has remained natural, his wife of 27 years looks to have spent time under the knife and looks almost as young as the couple’s daughter—who may have also had some plastic surgery.
Jillie, his wife looks to get Botox injections and may have also had a nose job during the course of the marriage. His daughter, a professional horse jumper, may have gotten lip fillers, which seem to be popular in younger celebrities.
As Tom isn’t opposed to men going under the knife, despite many fearing it can feminize the appearance of even the manliest dudes, it is likely that he takes care of his skin by using an exfoliating device that can penetrate his skin and clear his pores to help prevent signs of aging. And he probably wears sunscreen on a daily basis on his avocado ranch.
If photos don’t lie, then it looks like Kylie Jenner may be following family tradition and heading to the plastic surgeon’s office. A recent selfie posted by the aspiring model seems to showcase some newly plump lips, likely courtesy of lip fillers.
Kylie Jenner is becoming known for changing up her look—whether its chopping off her hair or coloring it a bold color, the youngest cast member of Keeping up with the Kardashians looks like she is trying to stand out from the rest of her family, even while she follows in their footsteps. Kylie’s latest look appears to be plumping her pout to look more like big sister Kim’s.
Although lipstick and lip plumpers can do wonders to create a fuller-looking mouth in the right hands, Kylie’s bigger lips have been around enough that experts agree that the young lady has likely been spending time dabbling with temporary lip fillers to make her mouth a little larger. And this may not be a healthy decision, according to children’s mental health experts.
HollywoodLife spoke to Couple’s Therapy host Dr. Jenn Berman who says, “I think she is growing up in a family where plastic surgery is the norm, so it makes a lot of sense that this is something that she is participating in.”
“I think that all the Kardashians have got to feel a lot of pressure to look a certain way in terms of their fans and being photographed all of the time, and their family culture.”
Other experts also believe that Kylie’s family and upbringing is a likely reason for her newly enlarged lips, likening her new look to a form of sibling rivalry.
Psychologist and relationship expert Dr. Gilda Carie explains, “Sibling rivalry is in every family so it would be understandable that she would want to put herself as a Kim look-a-like. Kim is now a married woman with a child and in her mind, her life is just starting to take off.”
“In her young mind she might believe that the success was based off of the surgery that they had done,” Dr. Gilda said. “She has connected that to success and doesn’t see a downside, no one has been hurt, so why shouldn’t she? She looks so much like Kim now! Look at how successful Kim has been!”
Dr. Gilda goes on to say that starting plastic surgery at a young age may be the beginning of a plastic surgery addiction.
“When they are they see every single line and crease in their mouth and faces as being something bad and negative and so they want to change that. That’s an addiction,” she said. “Nobody is really a Barbie Doll and there is no one who doesn’t have obvious signs of living, not aging, obvious signs of living.”
According to Dr. Gilda, many people that are unhappy with themselves change their outside without looking inside, where the real problems are.
The real proof for experts that have looked at Kylie’s new lips seems to be that although lips change as you age and Kylie is definitely becoming a mature woman, lips tend to get smaller, not larger. Unless of course plastic surgery is involved.
The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Goodger may feel that her appearance has improved since going under the knife. But her mother isn’t a fan. In fact, Cheryl Goodger has reportedly gone so far as to say that her daughter has actually “lost her looks” through plastic surgery.
Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger has admitted to being insecure about her looks, despite sharing frequent selfies with fans. In a recent interview, Lauren’s mom, Cheryl, shoulders some of the blame for her daughter’s low self-esteem.
“[Her insecurities stem from] when she went to live with her dad at four. I was very depressed after I had Lauren. I didn’t get any help and I sort of rejected Lauren because of that,” she admitted.
Cheryl goes on to say that she isn’t happy about her daughter’s plastic surgery, saying that she has ruined her looks. Although she is fine with Cheryl’s nose job, she doesn’t like her other procedures, including lip augmentation.
“She was so pretty. I’m not against her having her nose done. But I don’t like the big lips. I wish she’d stop,” she added.
I’m not against her having her nose done though. But she really didn’t need a boob job.”
“People think she’s self-obsessed and she loves herself, but she doesn’t,” Cheryl said.
In the past, Lauren has admitted to yo-yo dieting because she is never happy about her weight. Her big sister Nicole acknowledged Lauren’s figure in another interview.
She told New: “It’s on her mind 24/7. Sometimes I think she doesn’t wear the right clothes for her figure but I don’t think she necessarily needs to lose weight.”
“She’s a curvaceous woman – she’s got a curvy figure but sometimes she could wear clothes to suit her figure better than she does.”
After her breast augmentation, Lauren lost no time in showing off her new bust in selfies with captions such as “is exactly what the doctor ordered ☀️”
She also explained her desire for a breast augmentation was the result of frequent weight gain and loss.
“I’ve always had big boobs and where I’ve done extreme yo-yo dieting, exercise and then not doing anything at all, I felt like my chest had lost a bit of volume on the top.”
‘They’re very similar to my old boobs but they’ve got more volume rather than them flopping down a bit.”
In the past, Lauren has also confessed to having a nose job, a procedure that is said to have totaled around $6,500, according to tabloids. Lauren had a small bump removed from her nose so that her new nose is more symmetrical and pleasing from all angles—important for somebody who loves having their picture taken.
In addition to the nose job, Lauren also gets fillers placed in her lips at local clinic, a procedure that is referred to as a “gloss and go.”
Lauren is currently part of the Celebrity Big Brother cast, a move her mother does approve of.none
Lately stories about people trying to emulate Barbie dolls through plastic surgery seem to be running rampant. But Victoria Wild’s doll inspiration isn’t nearly as wholesome. The model turned plastic surgery fan reportedly went under the knife to more closely resemble a sex doll.
30-year old model Victoria Wild has already spent almost $50,000 on a nose job, permanent lip implants, Botox and three breast implant surgeries to take her to a size 32G. And the model says she isn’t done yet. She is still planning to have a buttocks augmentation and three more breast augmentation procedures.
Victoria reportedly pays for her procedures with her own earnings and is also helped by her wealthy boyfriend, who has encouraged her bizarre pursuit.
Victoria says: “Who wouldn’t want to be treated like a bimbo doll? It’s such a sexy look. People stare at me in the street and I love the way I stand out.”
According to Victoria her desire to look like a blow up doll began in high school, when she was unhappy with her looks.
She says, “I had a very normal childhood, living in a small village in the countryside. I was very slim and blonde and people would call me Barbie. But I hated my small A cup boobs. I didn’t like myself or the way I looked. I had an inferiority complex. “I didn’t know about plastic surgery at that age but I would always dream about resembling a sexy bimbo doll with huge breasts and insanely big lips. “I loved the way dolls looked and how sexy they were. They are so bright and bold. It was this fantasy in my head.”
Once Victoria began modeling, she discovered plastic surgery and how it could help achieve her goals.
“I learned about boob jobs and plastic surgery. I realised it was possible to make my dreams come true. I could become the sexy, bimbo doll I had always envisioned in my head.”
A few years ago, Victoria met her boyfriend, Simon, who encouraged her to go under the knife and has also paid for some of her procedures.
“Simon is a successful businessman and he loves the bombshell, plastic look too. He offered to help me financially with the surgery and motivated me to achieve my goal.”
In 2011, Victoria embarked on her plastic surgery journey. She went to Hungary to undergo a series of three breast augmentation procedures to make her bust a 32G.
Earlier this year, Victoria had a nose job to narrow her nose into a more doll like shape and has also had lip implants placed as well as undergone Botox injections.
Victoria claims to be happy with her results, as is her boyfriend.
She says, “Now I feel happier and more confident than I’ve ever felt before. ”
“Simon loves my sex doll look. I’m a bombshell now. People look at me in the street and men absolutely adore me. Simon’s so proud of the attention I get.”
“I get more glamour model work because how I look too. I would love to become famous for being a sex doll.”none
No, it’s not a scene from Total Recall. But it’s probably the latest Internet hoax to make the rounds. A woman calling herself Jasmine Tridevil claims to have had a breast augmentation to add an extra breast to her chest.
21-year old Jasmine Tridevil drew attention to her unusual request by calling in to a radio station to say that she had spent $20,000 to have a third breast implanted. The implant reportedly includes a nipple and she says that she had the areola tattooed on. According to Jasmine, it wasn’t easy to find a plastic surgeon willing to do the unusual procedure and she had to call around to several doctors before finding one that agreed to the procedure.
Jasmine is reportedly trying to tell her story via MTV and has already appeared on some tabloid television shows and is booking late night appearances as well. However, Jasmine says that she had the procedure because she was tired of looking so darn good.
“I got it because I wanted to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore. Most guys would think [the extra breast is] weird and gross. But I can still feel pretty because if I wore makeup and cute clothes, I can still, you know… feel pretty.”
Jasmine never named the plastic surgeon that she finally found to do the work. However, she did get called out by Snopes who says that everything from her name to the procedure is fake.
Plastic surgery experts have said that the whole thing is a hoax because it would take numerous procedures to create a third breast.
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn explains, “Wow. This is crazy. In interviews, she claimed that she saw 50-60 plastic surgeons before she could find one who would create a third breast for her. Creating a third breast is possible, but difficult and would likely necessitate several surgeries. The skin of her chest would have to be slowly stretched using a tissue expander, then a permanent implant would be placed in a second surgery after the new ‘breast’ is created. A nipple / areola could then be tattooed onto her breast.”
“I doubt that any real, board-certified plastic surgeons in their right mind would perform this deforming procedure. I certainly wouldn’t. The doctor who did perform this operation on her should be ashamed of himself or herself. What a creep, indeed.”
Most likely, Jasmine is seeking fame via a viral Internet story. Snopes says that Jasmine’s real name is Alisha Hessler and she has been charged with using a fake ID in the past, when she was under the legal drinking age. Jasmine found fame when instead of pressing charges against a man that beat her, she had him stand on a street corner for 8 hours wearing a sign that read, “I Beat Women Honk If I’m A Scumbag.”
Despite admitting that Snopes got much of her story right, Jasmine claims to have video of her plastic surgery procedure.none
