Extreme Plastic Surgery Celebrity Copycats

south-koreas-growing-obsession-cosmetic-surgeryAthletes, movie stars, and musicians are appearance and style role models for people trying to refine their identity says Jason Hope http://www.healthgrades.com/physician/dr-jason-hope-blasz. Cosmetic surgery patients may provide the doctor with a few photographs of a celebrity body part that they want. However, in extreme cases, people go through multiple surgeries to completely transform into a copycat of their favorite famous figure.

A Diehard, Obsessive Belieber
Toby Sheldon is aspiring musician has no regrets about spending over $100,000 to look closely like the YouTube sensation turned overnight heartthrob. Although he is older than the real Justin Bieber, his fascination with maintaining his youthfulness started as a simple hairline correcting procedure. The list has grown with an upper eyelid lift, a Perma-smile, and chin liposuction to name a few. He is gaining plenty of publicity for his outrageous transformation on television shows Botched and My Strange Addiction. Critics do not see much resemblance between Sheldon and Bieber, but the important part is that he is happy with the results so far.

Multiple Human Barbies
Jenny Lee came out on national television in 2004 to show off the results of 26 surgeries to look like a Barbie doll. Since then the total has climbed past 50. A diagnosis of Fibromyalgia changed her body so drastically that she is now a larger size and still struggling with her image. A few younger women have taken over the spotlight for their remarkable Barbie appearance. One of the most notable, Valeria Lukyanova, is a Ukrainian model known for her shocking likeness to the iconic Mattel plastic doll. The only surgery she admits to is breast implants, but it is difficult to deny the unnatural look of her physique. Lukyanova faced major scrutiny after publicly making strange and racist remarks, driving a lot of her supportive fans away from her side.

Real Life Ken Doll
On the other side of the toy spectrum is Justin Jedlica, the shocking human Ken doll. He proudly admits that he loves cosmetic surgery, and has undergone over 150 procedures to dramatically remodel his entire body. The long list of augmentations includes a nose job, a brow lift, brow bone shaving, bicep implants, pectoral implants, shoulder surgeries, and tricep implants. Future plans extend to the calves, abdominals, and quads with no sign of stopping anytime soon. Luckily for Justin, he loves the publicity and attention that he has received for his outrageous transformation.

Statistically, a large number of surgeries increases the likelihood of a botched procedure requiring at least one revision. Regular people decide to undergo a large amount of surgeries to look like celebrities that they admire. Celebrity or plastic surgery obsession can destroy the unique identity and relationships of any person. Cosmetic surgery is a way to make permanent improvements to body parts to make a person feel more comfortable being themselves, rather than transform into someone else. Although most of the patients feel happy with the results, a doctor must consider the mental health of anyone that wants to be like someone else.

How To Hide Blemishes, or Worse With Makeup

Blemishes and other skin irritations can really ruin your day. Especially if you have a big event to attend or a date to go on. There are a couple makeup tricks you need to know in order to not feel held back by your imperfections, and take control of them.

1. Wash your Hands

Before touching your face, make sure you thoroughly wash your hands. Dirt and oil will only make the blemish worse and help it hang around on your face a lot longer.

2. Choose a Concealer

When choosing a concealer to cover your blemish, make sure you test it on your wrist first to be sure it matches your skin tone. Concealer is a creamier foundation makeup with added pigments intended for specific parts of your face. Pick a yellow tinted concealer to hide redness from the blemish. If you are trying to cover a dark spot on your skin, choosing a lighter concealer is ideal. If you are hiding dark circles under your eyes, a green concealer works best.

3. Choose a Masking Concealer

A masking concealer is a thicker, creamier concealer with added pigment to help cover larger problem areas like scars, large pimples and skin irregularities.

4. Apply

Apply concealer over your blemish using your finger tip, eye shadow brush or sponge. Rub gently and be extra careful not to apply to much pressure if you are trying to conceal a pimple. Applying to much pressure may cause the pimple to pop, and spreading the oil from the blemish around on your face will cause you to break out. Once you have carefully covered all of your blemishes, http://www.refinery29.com/acne-makeup-tips you can apply the masking concealer to your whole face and neck. Blend the edges by moving your fingers in a circular motion on the skin. Set your masking concealer by applying an oil- free foundation over top. Again, apply this in a circular motion over your entire face. When you are finished, apply a powder foundation to finish the look.

5. Removal and Skin Maintenance

This is the most important part of your skin care routine, especially if the blemishes you are covering are acne pimples. Use a gentle cleanser to remove all the dirt and oil from your skin before going to bed and apply a thick moisturizer. To help with dark circles under your eyes, apply a wet tea bag on your eyes for about 10 minutes. You can also put two spoons in the freezer and apply those to your eyes for 5 minutes.

This seems like a lot of work to hide your blemishes and imperfections but once you have the beauty routine down pat, you will be able to complete it quickly before you leave the house. It may take a bit of practice to get the blending right, but once you have perfected the process you will not have to worry about how your skin looks before any big event or day to day activities.
