  • George Takei Reveals Battle with Skin Cancer

    George Takei, best known for his role as Star Trek’s Hikaru Sulu in the classic television series and known to younger audiences for his funny Internet presence that draws attention to current events, is reportedly battling skin cancer.

    77-year old George Takei recently showed up to an event sporting a large bandage across his cheek. Rather than a plastic surgery facelift, the bandage was placed closer to his cheek and George revealed that he had recently paid a visit to his dermatologist, who had removed a portion of his skin after detecting early signs of skin cancer there.

    According to The UK Sun newspaper, George said: “I went to my doctor for my physical last week and he detected an early skin cancer here.”

     

    “He cut it out and that’s why I’m wearing this.”

     

    With his typical wit, George added that the bandage was for medical reasons, not for treating domestic violence.

     

    “Let me assure you, my husband did not knock me out.”

     

    Wearing the bandage in public makes George amongst the latest celebrities to draw attention to the dangers of skin cancer and the importance of early detection. In the past, other celebrities such as Eric Dane, Bruce Jenner, Ewan McGregor, Sarah Paulson and Anderson Cooper have all been spotted with bandaged faces.

     

    Earlier this year, 75-year old country legend Kenny Rogers posted a photo of himself on social media wearing bandages and the humorous caption, “… but you should see the other guy!”

     

    Apparently the “other guy” in this instance was none other than skin cancer, as he followed the post with a poignant reminder and a promise for the future, “Had a bit of skin cancer removed today—I recommend everyone go get checked, especially since May is National Skin Cancer Detection & Prevention Month. Don’t worry though, I’m gonna look great in Knoxville this weekend!”

     

    And before Kenny, Aussie actor Hugh Jackman started the trend of showcasing bandages after skin cancer removal on social media.

     

    Hugh Jackman has twice posted to Instagram after a visit to his dermatologist—a trip his wife recommended he take.

     

    The first time Hugh had a cancerous spot taken off his nose, he acknowledged his wife for making him go to the dermatologist for a check up, writing, “Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a [basal] cell carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!” He also accompanied that important comment with a photo of himself sporting a bandage.

     

    With his second posting and photo, Hugh wrote, “Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!” the 45-year-old actor wrote.

     

    In addition to the importance of wearing sunscreen, it is also important to visit a dermatologist to have any new spots or moles checked out.

     

    And of course, when stars known for plastic surgery are spotted with bandaged faces, a new face is the public’s first thought—not health concerns.

    Michelle Obama Planning Plastic Surgery After Family Leaves the White House?

    Michelle Obama has breathed new life into the White House during her husband’s two terms. From getting the nation moving to showing that First Ladies can have a sense of style, Michelle has changed the perception of stuffy politicians. Now, as the family prepares to exit the White House in a couple of years, it seems that Michelle is also preparing for another makeover, which may or may not include plastic surgery.

    50-year old Michelle Obama has bared her arms, cut bangs and grown them out and appeared on a variety of media channels. As she prepares to retire back into private life, the National Enquirer reports that she is planning yet another change—a $100,000 makeover.

    Michelle already looks great, thanks to the active lifestyle and health eating habits she encourages all Americans to adopt. But it seems that Michelle is also looking forward to relinquishing her First Lady duties in favor of some needed personal time—including a plastic surgery assisted makeover to eliminate the signs of stress and aging that time in the White House incurs.

     

    According the National Enquirer tabloid, “Michelle has secretly enlisted high-profile experts for advice on her wardrobe and planned to spend $50,000 on designer dresses, pants, blouses, blazers, skirts, shoes, accessories and more!”

     

    “She’ll spend another $50,000 on more cosmetic work,” her pal revealed.

     

    If Michelle is planning to go under the knife, then plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn has some suggestions as to how FLOTUS can look her best, including getting a chin implant and Botox injections.

     

    “Her chin is a bit small and causes wrinkles when her mouth is closed. A reasonable-sized silicone chin implant would create better harmony in her face and make her even prettier.”

     

    “Botox injected into her forehead and the crow’s feet surrounding her eyes would smooth out the wrinkles. I would add Fractora skin-tightening treatments that work better than lasers in people with darker skin.”

     

    “She could also benefit from Restylane filler injections into her laugh lines,” added Dr. Youn, who’s not treated Michelle.

     

    And according to the Enquirer, even plastic surgery won’t be enough pampering for Michelle. Nothing short of the most luxury treatments will do.

     

    Including spending a few weeks at a beauty spa getting skin treatments like a “Diamond and Ruby” peel that will set her back a cool $7,000.

     

    “She also wants to take a bath in imported Evian water!” her pal added.

     

    If Michelle does opt for plastic surgery, she won’t be the first First Lady to do once exiting the White House.

     

    After her husband’s two terms in the Oval Office was up, Hillary Clinton underwent a drastic transformation from frumpy to fantastic—which many believe included some plastic surgery.

     

    Since leaving the White House, Hillary Clinton has updated her wardrobe and her style. And as she considers her own bid for White House residency, she may have also had a facelift and other nips and tucks to appear more ready for the tough job.

    Demi Moore Swears Off Plastic Surgery According to New Reports

    Demi Moore may be better known for staying forever young with plastic surgery even more than her iconic movie roles, but that is about to change. At least according to reports from the National Enquirer that Demi has vowed to stay away from plastic surgery in an effort to be a better role model for her daughters.

    The story goes that after daughter Rumer Willis posted photos of herself to social media that indicated that she may have used lip fillers to augment her lips and had her jawline shaved down, Demi began considering what influence she may have had in her daughter’s altered appearance.

    A source reveals to the National Enquirer that Demi staged a sort of intervention for Rumer and her friends, and “got a few of her daughter’s friends together and lectured them about the pitfalls of cosmetic surgery.”

     

    51-year old Demi has always insisted that she has not spent time under the knife, despite rumors that include numerous plastic surgery procedures such as breast implants, a breast reduction, a brow lift, liposuction, butt and thigh implants and collagen lip injections and even porcelain caps on her teeth.

     

    And while at least some of those rumors may have some truth, it seems that Demi has had a change of heart as to how she wants to age. “But now Demi is embracing aging,” the insider divulged. “She’s sworn off any further procedures.”

     

    It seems that Demi frequently lectures her daughters—Rumor and sisters Scout, 23, and Tallulah, 20–about what can come of plastic surgery and trying to alter their appearance as they try to follow in their famous family’s footsteps.

     

    “Demi has horror stories about unsightly lumps on her thighs that she thinks could be the result of poorly performed lipothinks all her daughters are naturally beautiful,” said

    a friend.

     

    “She also hates how surgery made her breasts look like artificial melons. But she’s worried that Rumer and her sisters feel pressure to chase an unrealistic Hollywood physical ideal.”

     

    This story is vastly different from past reports of Demi’s possible plastic surgery, which have said that the actress has spent as much as $500,000 on procedures over the years to lift this and restore that on everything from her breasts to her knees.

     

    In the past, Demi has been pretty coy about plastic surgery, saying that she has never had work done on her face, but has had procedures elsewhere on her body—which many believe to be an allusion to getting breast implants for her role in Striptease.

     

    “I have had something done but it’s not on my face,” she told Elle UK. “Maybe one day I’ll go under the knife. It just irritates me that people are constantly saying how much I’ve spent on plastic surgery. It hurts.”

     

    However, it seems that Demi may be turning over a new leaf in her approach to anti aging. Or she may be giving up Botox injections in favor of a new treatment option.

    Jodie Marsh Says She Doesn’t Understand Extreme Plastic Surgery

    Glamour model turned body builder Jodie Marsh is once again talking about her thoughts on plastic surgery. Despite her own experiences going under the knife, Jodie says she can’t relate to people who “deform their faces.”

    35-year old Jodie Marsh has been under the knife for a nose job and more than one breast augmentation but says she can’t relate to stars who spend a lot of time changing their looks.

    “I can’t relate to people who completely deform their face like Pete Burns,” she told Mirror Celeb.

     

    “I’m like: ‘why would you want to look like that why would you do that to yourself?’”

     

    Jodie also went on to talk about her own botched plastic surgery, which involved having an open wound after stitches on her breast failed to heal. Jodie ended up having a “gaping” hole on her left breast which required emergency attention after it didn’t heal in the months following her procedure.

     

    According to her, the wound was so embarrassing that it eventually put her off sex completely.

     

    “I couldn’t cuddle, I could be intimate with anyone, I couldn’t even have sex,” she says.

     

    “I was embarrassed and ashamed.”

     

    Jodie first revealed her bad experience in 2012, when she wanted to downsize her  breast implants, but was afraid because of the results she had with her first procedure.

     

    According to The Sun, Jodie says, “When I woke up, they were so swollen. The first dressing was taken off after a week or so – that’s when I saw that I wasn’t healing. As the stitches started popping out of my skin, there was no skin to hold the incision together. My boobs looked like they were exploding. It was so painful. There was green pus coming out of my boobs and they constantly bled.”

     

    “I had to change the dressings every day and was in such discomfort I couldn’t work – I basically sat at home depressed for a year. I wish I’d never had them done. People should realize that every boob job has the potential to become a horror story.”

     

    After her replacement procedure, Jodie was reportedly pleased with her new breast size, but blamed doctors for people that end up with breast implants larger than they want or going under the knife for numerous procedures.

     

    “It’s a generalisation to say Reality stars are to blame – we’re not the ones holding the scalpel. I’ve always said you should never take surgery lightly – think about it long and hard, because it’s not about what celebrity had what operation, it’s about you and your body,” Jodie says of the report’s findings to heatworld.com.

     

    Jodie does agree that cosmetic surgery needs to be regulated, but says that patients also need to educate themselves.

     

    “I wouldn’t tell [anyone] whether to do it or not, but I would say make sure you go for a consultation. Make sure you ask every question you can think of and make sure you they guarantee an appropriate level of aftercare.”

     

    Now it seems that Jodie is finally happy with her body and looking for a celebrity to share it with.

    Amanda Holden Under Scrutiny for More Plastic Surgery

    English host Amanda Holden is once again under scrutiny for plastic surgery as the former Britain’s Got Talent Judge has taken over as a morning television host. Amanda is the replacement for Holly Willoughby, the usual host of Britain’s This Morning show. And although Holly Tweeted Amanda good luck with her new gig as she takes pregnancy leave, other Twitter users were less kind.

    43-year old Amanda Holden has come under fire in the past for overdoing plastic surgery procedures such as Botox. Back in 2010, Amanda said she had stopped using the injectable as fans complained that she looked odd and frozen faced.

    However, despite Amanda claiming to have stopped using Botox, many suspected that she was trying other things, such as lip fillers, which led to comments about her lips appearing misshapen to revelations that she was still using Botox.

     

    Now it looks like Amanda is back to getting a backlash for Botox. On her first day of hosting duties, her predecessor on This Morning, Tweeted, “Good luck @Amanda_Holden welcome to the family…xxx”

     

    However, fans of the show were less generous in their support and rather than Tweet comments about her new gig, focused instead on Amanda’s appearance. Apparently Amanda wasn’t looking up to par and neither was her hosting ability.

     

    One fan Tweeted, “What an absolutely terrible decision to put Amanda Holden in for Holly. My mornings are RUINED  #ThisMorning”

     

    Another complained that Amanda’s performance was so bad that they couldn’t watch the whole show, “Oh well I tried to watch @itvthismorning with Amanda Holden sitting in for Holly, but sorry it’s so dire after just 10 minutes!”

     

    And still others took issue with the blonde’s laugh, “Nothing like Amanda Holden’s laugh to send chills down your spine on a Monday morning. And not the good kind.”

     

    And although Amanda has faced rumors of Botox in the past, it seems she has yet to face them down as many commentators also took issue with her appearance, which they found to be odd and frozen.

     

    “Amanda Holden looks like she’s done some surgeory” while another begged her to stop tampering with her face tweeting: “please please amanda holden stop having facial surgery !!!!!.you are beautiful without it.”

     

    Years ago, Amanda openly admitted to using Botox but has maintained that her exploration of plastic surgery has gone no further.

     

    When Make Me Heal first reported on Amanda’s Botox use, she said, “Oh no, I agree with Simon Cowell It’s like cleaning your teeth – maintenance.”

     

     

    “It’s like getting your roots done. I think as long as you don’t go stupidly over the top…I can move my face.”

     

    However, once she spent time in Hollywood, she claimed to change her mind about the dermal injectable.

     

    The host was reported as saying, “I haven’t had Botox for eight or nine months and when I’m out in LA, I think about it even less.”

     

    Based on her latest look, it looks Amanda is back home in England and back to Botox as well.

    Plastic Surgery Fans Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt Head Back to Reality TV on Marriage Boot Camp

    Perpetual attention lovers Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are once more giving reality television a go, this time seeking help for their relationship on the new season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. The duo first met on The Hills and later tried to stay relevant by sending Heidi under the knife for numerous plastic surgery procedures.

    Back in 2010 Heidi went under the knife for F-sized implants to replace her original implants as well as a nose job revision, chin reduction, mini brow lift, Botox in forehead and frown area, fat injections in cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips, neck liposuction, ears pinned back, liposuction on waist, hips and inner and outer thighs and buttock augmentation. After that, she was on numerous magazine covers and television shows documenting her transition from plain Jane to glamour superstar.

    Since leaving The Hills, Heidi and Spencer’s lives have gone downhill. After blowing a lot of their money on living in the fast lane and plastic surgery and plastic surgery recovery, the couple now lives in Spencer’s parents’ house.

     

    Apparently, Heidi’s numerous procedures didn’t just take a physical and psychological toll, they also cost the couple financially as well. They admit to going through around $10 million.

     

    “A majority of it is gone. There’s agents, lawyers, managers, taxes, hair and makeup,” Heidi said.

     

    “The private jets, the million dollar wardrobe,” Spencer added.

     

    Nowadays, their life is very different.

     

    “We just live really humble lives. I cook a lot, I clean our house all the time,” she said.

     

     

    Reportedly, the couple is headed for Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars over the subject of children. According to WE tv via UsWeekly, “Heidi desperately wants them now, while Spencer is more interested in going out and having fun.”

     

     

    This isn’t the first time that Heidi and Spencer have tried making a comeback. Once they lost their fortune, the couple has gone on various reality shows, including Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother and Big Brother’s Bit on the Side. 

     

    And Heidi is willing to give interviews about her past plastic surgery to all who will listen. Earlier this year, the couple gave an interview to the former cast of The View, explaining Heidi’s willingness to go under the knife for numerous procedures before the age of 30.

     

    “I really just went back in to get my nose reset and get a little bit larger of implants because I had been elbowed by a backup dancer in a music video that I was doing and then I went in and was talking to my doctor and he just kind of diagnosed me and was like, ‘You should get a chin reduction, and an eyebrow lift,’ Heidi told then-host Barbara Walters.

     

    Heidi and Spencer will be joining other familiar faces to reality television fans, including The Real Housewives of New York City’s Aviva Drescher and her husband, Reid as well as Bad Girls Club‘s Natalie Nunn and her husband Jacob Payne, Survivor: Blood vs. Water‘s Tyson Apostol and Rachel Foulger, and R&B Divas‘ Syleena Johnson and her husband Kiwane Garris.

    Kim Zolciak Shows Off Tummy Tuck

    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?

    Did Kim Kardashian Drop Baby Weight with Lipo?

    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.

    Kate Gosselin Still Rumored to be Aging with Plastic Surgery

    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.

    Reality Star EJ Johnson Shows Off Initial Results of Gastric Bypass Surgery

    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.
