1. Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States.  Silicone or saline breast implants can recontour breasts, add volume and provide a more youthful appearance. Breast augmentation is also performed to reduce breast size, balance the size of breasts, and for reconstructive purposes after surgical procedures like Mastectomy. Nicole Kidman, Christina Aguilera and Paris Hilton are some celebrities who had breast augmentation.

2. Botox Injections

It is no surprise that botox tops the list as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, not just among women, but men as well.  Botox helps smooth out wrinkles in areas such as crows feet, frown lines, forehead lines, creases or dimples in chin, and horizontal neck lines. Botox is also useful in treating migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.  Simon Cowell, Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, and First Lady, Michelle Obama all admit to using botox!

3. Face Lift/Neck Lift

Celebrities are under constant pressure to look their best- whether it’s from being in spotlight or competing for roles in Hollywood.  Facelift Surgery is designed to reverse the visible signs of facial aging, including the formation of jowls, which obscure the jaw line, the occurrence of a double chin and the appearance of vertical bands of the skin and muscle in the front of the neck.

4. Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery is one of the most sought after procedures, not just in Hollywood. With social media usage on the rise, everyone, not just celebrities, seeks to change the appearance of their nose. Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nasal surgery, improves the shape and size of the nose. The procedure can remove a hump, change the shape of the nasal tip, and straighten the nose. The size and shape of the nostrils can be changed. The goal of rhinoplasty is often to achieve better harmony between the nose and the other facial features. Dr. Kassir is a triple board certified surgeon who has performed thousands of rhinoplasty surgeries for his patients and is considered to be one of the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in New Jersey and NYC. Celebrities who have had rhinoplasty surgery include Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus, Megan Fox, and Kim Kardashian.

5. Lip Augmentation

Full sensuous lips are a sign of youth and vitality. The aging process often results in excess thinning of the red portion of the upper lip along with a visible lengthening of the distance from the base of the nose to the lip border. Downturned corners of the mouth impart a frowning appearance, which usually does not reflect the individual's underlying emotional state. Options for enhancement of the lips and mouth include a variety of injectable "fillers": Restylane®, Radiesse™ and fat transfer to lips. Angelina Jolie’s lips are the most sought-after lips.

6. Chin/Cheek Implants

Mentoplasty, commonly known as chin augmentation can improve the profile by creating a better balance between the chin and other facial features. Chin augmentation usually desired by the patient or suggested by Dr. Kassir when there is a small or recessive chin that disrupts facial harmony. A chin augmentation surgery can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Cheek implants and cheek augmentation are another popular procedure among celebrities as they desire a more defined jawline. For more defined cheeks, dermal fillers or implants can be used.  Angelina Jolie, Madonna and Megan Fox are some stars who had cheek augmentation, and Marilyn Monroe had chin augmentation back in the 1950s.

7. Liposuction

Exercise, personal trainers and detox diets all contribute to helping celebrities look their best, but when it comes to stubborn fat, it is no secret that liposuction surgery is the go to procedure! Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around the world. Liposuction surgery removes excess fat deposits and contours your body, and many celebrities have liposuction surgery to achieve the body their fans demand. In order to achieve the best results, it is imperative to find an experienced and a reputable plastic surgeon to perform the procedure to prevent what happened to Tara Reid. Great examples of celebrity liposuction include Jessica Alba, The Rock, and Demi Moore.
