Nip Tuck or Genetic Good Luck Celebrities and Plastic Surgery

  • Patricia Heaton Everybody loves . . . a woman who is honest. At 52, the sitcom star is still young enough to keep people guessing about her good looks, however she chose to reveal the secret behind her enviable physique. Heaton admitted, I had four babies and four C-sections, and my stomach looked like the map of the world. My breasts were hanging down to here from breast-feeding those babies and my nipples were like platters. I wanted to fit into the gowns that I finally got to wear. I had a breast reduction and a tummy-tuck and I feel fine about that and I feel fine about saying I did it.Even though she says shed recommend the tummy tuck to anyone, pictures reveal some adverse side effects -- like the lack of a belly button. Hey, whatever makes you happy!
  • Virginia Madsen Botox. Its probably more popular than Yoga in Hollywood, but no one wants to be the face of this trend except for 49-year-old Ms. Madsen that is. The actress became the spokesperson for Allergan (the maker of Botox and Juvderm) and admitted, I work out. I eat good foods. And I also get injectables, and I just felt like it was really important for us to discuss the safety issues. I lost the lines, but I still look like me, which is the result that I think many people want to experience."
  • Jamie Lee Curtis If millions of people were whispering that youre a hermaphrodite, youd be insecure about your looks too. Yet as the 51-year-old can attest to, plastic surgery isnt always the answer. While promoting her childrens book on self-esteem, Jamie said, "I've had a little plastic surgery. I've had a little lipo. I've had a little Botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it."
  • Sharon Osbourne The 57-year-old thinks her plastic surgeons office is a vending machine and she has endless change. The reality family matriarch seems to already have had every procedure in the book (facelift, tummy tuck, breast lift) and shes not ruling out more, all in the name of love.Always brutally honest, Sharon has said, I like to feel nice for Ozzy. God knows he stuck by me all those years when I looked like a bin-bag. Would I have another facelift? Yes. When people say women should grow old gracefully, I'm like 'Shut up!'" Aging Like Fine Wine
  • Jodie Foster The 47-year-old is an outspoken advocate for staying au naturel. Is she known for being Hollywoods glamour girl? Hardly, but thats fine with her. She once said in an interview, For me, its really a self-image thing. Like, Id rather have somebody go, Wow, that girl has a bad nose, than Wow, that girl has a bad nose job. Plus, the lines around her eyes remind us how successful she is. If youd managed to sustain a movie career for 40 years, wouldnt you want people to know it?
  • Diane Lane The 45-year-old starred in some of the hottest sex scenes of the decade (Unfaithful) and comes home every day to a sexy young husband (Josh Brolin). Apparently all it takes is an extreme fear of going under the knife. She said in 2008, I'm just too chicken to experiment with my face and have it go wrong. I'm not saying I never will. But it's like, what scares you more? Getting old or looking weird?
  • Goldie Hawn The 64-year-old has been the subject of much debate when it comes to plastic surgery. Overly-plump lips indicate shes had some experience with collagen, but the lines on her face show shes not trying to compete with Kate Hudson as the familys hot young blonde. When asked if shed consider plastic surgery she said, I don't have a problem with it. If I needed it, I would probably do it. But if you want to feel good about yourself and think that you can achieve that through plastic surgery -- then forget about it! You are who you are. Fun fact: Goldie claims even her blonde locks are all real. She told Womans Day in 2007, Even now I don't have to color my hair at all because I don't have any grey in it. It's just amazing.
  • Susan Sarandon

    Shes another one who faces plastic surgery rumors and admits shes not opposed to going under the knife. Yes, she looks her age -- but she does 64 a hell of a lot better than most.

    Her secret to looking good? Ping pong. She revealed, "I think ping pong is the most fun way to stay in shape. You really work up a sweat and its fun. It's good for your mind as well as your body.
