Celebrities Who Have Opened Up About Plastic Surgery

Admitting to getting work done is not the norm in Hollywood. However, those that choose full disclosure often speak enthusiastically.

Sometimes, when you look and feel great, you just want to share the reasons why. These celebrities aren’t afraid to show off their new looks with confidence.

Plastic surgery is a personal choice. Celebrities that open up about it, though, help others to feel comfortable and understood.

No one is alone in wanting to achieve personal body acceptance. The candor of these famous women can be inspiring to those facing the same body challenges.

Find out who has spoken openly:

Most recently, Iggy Azalea spoke candidly about getting breast implants. She admitted it was something she’d “thought about my entire life.”


She underwent the surgery because she wanted to stop using pads and underwire in many of her tops to fill them out.

A common issue for many women is not being able to wear the clothes they want because they don’t have the natural proportions for them.

It can be a frustrating dilemma or even cause insecurity.

In another interview, Azalea spoke about how common the breast enhancement procedure is and that her new figure is something she wants to be proud of and speak openly about.

There are many women and girls who use the procedure to feel more confident about their bodies. Underdeveloped breasts or lopsided proportions are main reasons for insecurity.

A doctor will be able to review options for creating natural and proportional breasts. The decision should always be an informed one.

Azalea did not make a hasty choice and there are other celebrities who took the decision very seriously.

Kelly Rowland has been open about her breast surgery and her journey to going through with it.


When she first started considering it she was 18, but then waited ten years to actually go through with the procedure.

Her mother and Beyonce’s mother advised her to wait to see if her body matured or if she learned to love her small frame.

Breast tissue is still developing until about age 22 for most girls.

Wearing padded bras helped Rowland to imagine what she would look like and she ultimately decided the surgery would make her happier.

Wanting a fuller, perkier set can happen at any age.

There were 300,000 implant procedures in the U.S. in 2013 (up 37% since 2000 and still rising). The breakdown by age, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is this:

The largest number falls in the 30 to 39 age range.


Most women have children or finish with pregnancy during those ages. Jane Seymore underwent breast enhancements after having children because as she said she wanted to replace “what the kids ate.”


It is no secret that having children changes a woman’s body. Carrying life and caring for life are amazing feats, but it can cause a difference in weight distribution and breast size and shape.

Moms can want makeovers too. Getting a breast lift or breast augmentation is one way moms can regain confidence, feel sexy again, or just spend a little time on themselves for a change.

If you’re a mom looking to get some work done, the Mommy Makeover might be an option.

This makeover is specific to all the areas that change when having children. Another area that women can often feel insecure about is their nose.

Tabloids will often discuss whether or not celebrities underwent rhinoplasty or if they are just contouring wizards. It can be a difficult thing to discuss because of the scrutiny.

Jillian Michaels, personal trainer/fitness guru, has been open about her nose job for a while, though.


“I had my nose done when I was 16 years old,” she said in a People Magazine interview. “And I’ll be honest, it did change my life.”

Her whole career has been built around sharing workouts and advice on improving body fitness. She is an avid supporter of improving what you can to feel more confident about yourself. It makes sense that she would be open about plastic surgery that made her feel happier about her appearance.

“Not to say you should let your physicality define you, but there are some things that can make people feel really insecure,” she says at the end of the interview. “So, if there is something you want to fix that allows you to feel a little bit more confident, I support it.”

“I think it’s about [doing it for] the right reasons.”

Whatever specific reason someone has for undergoing plastic surgery, the most important thing to remember is that it is a personal choice. So long as the decision is informed, the doctor is an experienced specialist, and the patient has realistic expectations then the experience should be a positive one.


Lisa Kudrow, best known as Phoebe on Friends, also opted to undergo rhinoplasty in high school.

When asked about it, she said the surgery was “life altering.”

You don’t have to let the world know you’ve gotten work done or are considering the work, but hopefully the new-found confidence achieved through the procedure will leave others in awe – no matter what they suspect.

With more options becoming available in the field daily and with more public figures spreading acceptance of cosmetic procedures, every woman should feel like she has a choice.
