Summary: We’re not even totally through the month of May 2017 yet, but our celebrity plastic surgery news roundup sure has a lot of ground to cover. We don’t necessarily look to celebrities to provide gossip entertainment. Rather, we’re looking to see what we can learn from these procedures and the celebrities that get them!
What’s Going on in May 2017? Celebrity Plastic Surgery News Roundup
There’s hardly a month that goes by without a significant amount of celebrity new for us to gather—so we’re bringing you the May 2017 celebrity plastic surgery news roundup! To be fair, we’ll be covering (or perhaps debunking) some rumors as well. I know, I know—celebrity plastic surgery seems more like gossip than anything else.
But here at Plastic Surgery Articles, we work hard to ensure that we get something educational out of the experience. Whether a celebrity had a tummy tuck or not is interesting—but the discussion can teach you something about your own desire for a tummy tuck. And that’s worth talking about.
So let’s look at some of the leading celebrity plastic surgery stories from around the web in the past 15 days or so. We’re only halfway through May 2017, and there’s so much for this celebrity plastic surgery news roundup to discuss!
Chrissy Teigen’s Non Plastic Surgery Admission
As we covered right here on our own website, May saw an intriguing story from celebrity and actress Chrissy Teigen. Apparently, Teigen had made a sarcastic remark about her cheekbones. She was understandably irritated that everyone always thought her cheekbones were artificial.
So she said something to the effect of: my cheeks are real, but everything else is fake. It wasn’t long before some gossip sites were running with the news as though it were real. You can see where this is going, right? Eventually Teigen herself had to go out and clean up the mess.
Sometimes that kind of thing happens. But we spent a lot of time in our article discussing ways that you can protect yourself—that is, we talked about ways that you could think critically about these gossip stories so as to keep from falling for them. Some questions you could ask include:
- Is the rumored procedure even real (or common)?
- What position has the celebrity taken on the procedure?
- Could the results be achieved non surgically?
- Could the results be achieved with makeup?
Braina DeJesus’s Labiaplasty (Sort of)
One other story floating around the internet lately has been that of Briana DeJesus’s top to bottom “Mommy Makeover.” Now, a mommy makeover can consist of a wide variety of procedures. Usually, this procedure set refers to a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. In DeJesus’s case, her surgeon also performed a labiaplasty.
This is not entirely uncommon. And DeJesus’s sugeon—the famous “Dr. Miami”—was quite open about his patient’s reasoning. Apparently, childbirth had stretched out various areas of tissue. This is also not uncommon with patients who undergo labiaplasty.
But the author of this piece used DeJesus’s labiaplasty procedure to discuss other motivations that women often have for undergoing this procedure. Not all of those motivations are cosmetic, it should be mentioned. Indeed, many women wish to have labiaplasty in order to improve confidence and comfort.
Brad Pitt’s Plastic Surgery Rumors
Towards the end of April (technically not May, we know, but it’s close enough), there were more rumors circulating about Brad Pitt getting facial plastic surgery. The story was that, due to the stress of his divorce from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt’s face was showing an excessive amount of wear.
The story turned out to be fake (this happens a lot with unsubstantiated celebrity plastic surgery rumors). According to the website of the Minneapolis facial plastic surgeons at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, however, stress can be a cause of wrinkles and lines in the face. However, that stress takes a significant amount of time to manifest in that way.
In other words, it’s possible that heightened stress might one day give Brad Pitt a few extra wrinkles. But that’s in combination with other, normal aging factors. And, of course, if Pitt is smoking cigarettes, that’s going to do more to cause facial wrinkles than anything.
Always on the Look Out
People often look to celebrities as a way to gage what’s popular and hot in the fields of plastic surgery. But that’s not always the case that these Hollywood actors are leading the way. Indeed, we keep track of these gossip sites and news columns to see what we can learn!
Maybe you can learn something from our May 2017 plastic surgery news roundup. We certainly hope you have. If not, there will always be June. We’ll certainly be keeping our ears the ground!
