As a denizen of the Jersey Shore, I have to make a confession. Sacrilegious as it may be to admit, I am a huge fan of Jersey Shore. I feel bad saying that, since I grew up close to where they shot the first season and it really did create a world of chaos for all the locals involved. (By the way, we’re not all spray tanned. I, for one, am ghostly white year-round.)
Fairly recently, I watched the reunion of the classic fist-pumping crew. It was a huge deal for a lot of us folks who low-key enjoyed the show. It was everything that we expected it be, and more!
I got to admit, they still looked good after all these years. The Situation looked like himself. Pauly D still kept his same hairstyle, and of course, Jwoww brought her killer sense of style to the shore. Vinny, once typically considered to be the slender one, now looked smoking hot and beefy. (GTL, much?!)
My favorite star, Snooki, looked better than before. That being said, I noticed something a bit different about her. Was it her boobs? Nope. I’m pretty sure they always looked that way since the show. Her skin tone remained just as heavily tanned as ever. Her hair remained a pouf…
Her lips. It was her lips.
When she was recently filmed during the reunion, it became clear that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi had fuller lips—and honestly, she looked glamorous. It suited her very well. Her figure was also a bit different, and she later admitted that she had a “mommy makeover” after having her two kids.
The work that she had done was subtle, and honestly, I wouldn’t have been able to figure it out if I wasn’t an avid fan of the Living Sage Plastic Surgery App. They have videos and posts that allow you to see before and after photos of people who have undergone cosmetic procedure. Watching enough of that stuff will allow you to tell the difference—and also figure out whether or not you’d want to do the same.
I don’t know who was Snooki’s plastic surgeon. Maybe it was a celebrity plastic surgeon. Maybe she had it done while she was in Florida. Wherever she had it done, she had it done well. Kudos, Snooki. You done good!
The foul mouthed and all too intimidating British chef, Gordon Ramsay has been growing in popularity as the spotlight brings him closer into the limelight. The TV personality had finally surrendered to the vicious world of Hollywood after they had made extreme remarks about his physical appearance. Ramsay’s constant facial expression conveys an all too frightening demeanor as we know just how short of a fuse the celebrity chef really has.
Ramsay had never been the type to worry about how he looks to other people, especially on screen. His talent and personality did all of the work for him. However, it wasn’t until the people closest to him spoke up about how his appearance was a direct reflection of how the public perceived him and how the media was representing him.
We get it, Ramsay doesn’t seem like the type who would succumb to trivial things such as looking good or changing his appearance to please the public eye. However, Hollywood and the media can be very cruel when it comes to a person’s image. Appearance is everything, especially in the world of stardom.
Ramsay expresses how he would read the vicious things written about him in the tabloids, describing him as “craggy-face, map of Wales, ugly, deflated rugby ball”, as the list goes on and on. His own children have even asked him why he has so many wrinkles on his face, while his daughter has even tried to squeeze coins into the deep creases on his face.
According to the Daily Mail, a fellow Brit and Hollywood veteran also has given Ramsay a push to go under the knife. Simon Cowell who is no stranger to the world of Botox and fillers had advised Ramsay that getting minor work done will help his likability and will appear more pleasing to the eyeballs watching him on television. His overall persona is intimidating in itself, so softening his look will increase his charismatic star power and clean up his rugged, harsh features.
One uncomfortable incident that Ramsay had experienced was when a professional makeup artist asked him if he had been involved in a car accident as a child and if he had went through the windshield. These negative responses to his skin, specifically around his chin, mouth and forehead, really began to take a toll.
Ramsay has openly admitted that he too has grown uncomfortable with the deep lines and wrinkles on his forehead and the diagonal creases on his chin. He has even gone as far as comparing himself to Scarface. The restaurateur hasn’t always felt this way about his appearance, however his children are who had driven him to become more paranoid with how bad his skin looked.
Unlike many of the Hollywood stars that go under the knife, Ramsay did not go out of his way to hide the truth of the scenario. Although, his stance on the matter is quite comical as he told Mirror, “No one noticed until I mentioned it. When you don’t say anything, you’re classified as a liar, so you can’t win. It’s got me more s**t in the past 6 months.”
He has claimed to have gotten laser, not Botox, although there have been other news outlets quoting him for speaking on Botox which seems accurate since his face looks more plump and youthful than it normally does. In an uncomfortable four minute procedure, he had a few pricks on each side of his face. However in an all too strange way, Ramsay had claimed that the brilliant man that worked on him refused to touch his forehead (and we can’t seem to figure out why). We’ve never taken the in-your-face hard-a** as a fibber, but then again who really knows?
Shortly after more rumors had begun to surface, fans and onlookers had speculated that he had gotten way more done than just a laser treatment or fillers. The gossip suggests that he has gotten Botox, facial fillers, veneers, a hair transplant and a facelift. We aren’t sure just how accurate these accusations are, but judging by his current appearance, we don’t think he went that far.
Until of course, a weird case of a snowball effect had spun the media and sent us all through a whirlwind. Strangely enough, shortly after his procedure, Ramsay was spotted leaving a hair clinic with a cap covering his scalp. Then, shortly following his exit route from the Beverly Hills clinic, he was spotted looking extremely puffy and swollen. His response to all the rising gossip surrounding his appearance? He was out shooting in Costa Rica where a group of bandits poured gasoline all over him. Following this odd-sounding story, things just started to sound even weirder. Not too long after this mishap, Ramsay and his family were vacationing for holiday where they spent two weeks in Napa. When the family had gone horseback riding, the vulgar chef explains how he had a terrible allergic reaction to the horse on top of his recent scalp problem, he refers to the long stint of unfortunate events as a “hair nightmare”.
The strange reality of Ramsay’s situation is not the act itself of getting work done as men’s plastic surgery is no longer considered a taboo, rather his all too extreme “story” explaining his puffy faced appearance. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, a Manhattan-based plastic surgeon who specializes in male plastic surgery told Business Insider, “Over the last three to five years, there’s been a huge boom in men’s aesthetic surgery. Out practice has seven websites, one exclusively for men, and many of our patients now are male. It’s a very big misconception that all patients are women.”
The rising trend in the realm of male plastic surgery has grown in popularity and now more than ever men are seeking treatments to help return their youth to their appearance. Botox or not, the dirty mouthed chef is still whipping up delicious meals and serving up a huge slice of sarcasm, Scarface or not, we’ve gotta love him!
A beautiful body can be enough to launch a career beyond your wildest dreams. Don’t believe me? Look at Kim Kardashian-West. Regardless of what your personal opinion may be of her, there is no denying she is a beautiful woman. From her curves to her luminous smooth skin, she makes being gorgeous look totally effortless, and that’s something everyone is looking to achieve.
Whether you’re gracing the cover of Vogue or just trying to kill it on the streets, looking good is on the top of everyone’s list, including Kim K.’s. Her knock out transformation had a lot to do with her hair removal, and she has not kept quiet about it.
One of her major concerns was her hairline. Although it my appear to be flawless now, her Armenian roots made it difficult to have that chic and polished look she was going for. Baby hairs were no small problem for Kardashian-West and that’s evident in her before and after photos.
She even posted on her own website about the procedure; “I lasered my baby hairs off years ago, because my forehead had all these little baby hairs, and I would always break out because of them,” –kimkardashianwest.com
She didn’t just stop at her hairline. It’s hard not to noticed that her eyebrows are always on fleek. Waxing is painful, threading is even worse, and tweezing? Don’t even go there. If you’re one of the, “hairy ethnicities”, you also know that those options don’t work for more than a day before your hairy scary madness starts creeping back.
Let’s move a little lower. Although some of us may be wary about sharing our goods with the world, Kardashian-West has no reservations with it at all. Her body is her income. It’s how she started her career and it’s a big part of how she’s maintained her success for this long. After all, not just anyone can break the internet on multiple occasions.
Kim K. has gotten rid of any trace of hair you could possibly find on her body- which it not only amazing for her, but it’s pretty damn convenient for the world.
Real talk; no one wants to look at a woman’s body covered in hair- especially the women themselves. In addition to her brows, hairline and Va- Va- Voom body, Kim has had her neck, face and even parts of her body lasered. Clearly, all of these procedures are doing wonders for the pop culture queen.
A woman’s life is busy enough today between her career, relationships and family. It’s been said time and time again that most women who are mother’s barely even have time to shower more than twice a week, let alone groom themselves correctly. We as women have a lot to maintain and not a lot of time to do it.
The Smooth System to the rescue! The Smooth System is effective from the neck up, which is more than we can say about laser hair removal of the past. Kim understood the importance of a clean hairline and how it could work wonders for her aesthetic appearance. Although we have no confirmation Kim underwent a procedure, the proof is in the photos that some type of expert and advanced technique was performed. With treatments like this all women no longer need to worry about brow maintaining. They will forever be beautiful thanks to a little zapping.
Think about never having to worry again if you forgot to shave; or having to change your outfit because when it comes to shaving and waxing, the struggle is so real and we just rather wear pants. It may to time to actually take a cue from Kimmy and take to the laser ourselves.
If your find yourself hanging in the Big Apple and decide to shed that winter coat permanently, drop in to Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center. No one does hairless, better than Lucy.
Most of us will never see the money or fame that the Kardashian’s have, but does not mean we can’t be as flawless. Go hairless, Go flawless. Treat Yo’ Self.
Ariel Winter once hated what she got talked about for. “Ariel Winter Bra Size” was a trending topic on the Internet while most Ariel Winter pictures in the media focused on her ample cleavage. It was as if her work on Modern Family was inconsequential. What hurt the young actress most was that people failed to realize the physical pain she had to endure to go about her daily life and keep up with a busy acting schedule with a 32 F cup size. Ariel has recently opened up about her breast reduction surgery, why she was compelled to go under the knife at a young age of 17 and what is her life like now.
Ariel Winter: Her Life Before Breast Reduction
Ariel Winter, Modern Family star and rising teen sensation, had always been a curvy girl with an ample derrière. But it was the boobs which got people talking and had the star in pain and seemingly sprouted almost overnight after a period of awkward growth spurt. Ariel remembers hating her flat-chested figure and craving for boobs when she was younger. Then suddenly, they began to grow. They grew and grew and before she knew it, she was a 32F at 15.
While people were curious about Ariel Winter’s bra size, the star herself was not much shocked. She came from a family of large-breasted women and some of them had already gone through breast reduction surgery. But the woes of living a life with a set of large boobs had only begun for the young star.
Finding clothes and bras that fit properly was a challenge. Sometimes she didn’t even find what she was looking for. But what hurt more was the sheer physical pain of carrying around and balancing her breasts. Ariel found it difficult to stand straight for long hours, an obvious liability in her profession. What didn’t help was that her Modern Family character could not sport a full figure of a mature woman. So Ariel was strapped down and made to wear over-sized jackets and sweaters to appear closer to the age of her character. She had neck and back pain and developed a hunched posture trying to balance her large assets on a petite 5’1” frame.
Equally painful were her emotional battles. The Ariel Winter pictures in the media had people commenting more on her figure than her work. And then there were the snide “fat” comments on the social media. It seemed as if the topic of Ariel Winter bra size invited nothing but sarcasm from people.
Why Did Ariel Winter Go In for Breast Reduction?
It is hard being a teenager. It is harder being a teenage celebrity and especially one in an industry that is obsessed with beauty and the perfection of the female form. Ariel Winter had enough of living in shame and trying to hide her figure behind her dresses. She had enough of people criticizing her looks while commenting on the Ariel Winter pictures on the Internet. She wanted to be able to wear the dresses she loved and be active and playful like the average teenager. She certainly didn’t want to live through all the physical pain.
She could live her dream only with a breast reduction surgery. She underwent the surgery to reduce from a voluptuous and painful 32F to a more realistic, attractive and comfortable 34D.
Women with large, heavy and sagging breasts undergo breast reduction to improve the quality of their lives, be more active without experiencing pain, sport more proportionate figures and youthful–looking breasts and be done with living in shame. A breast reduction surgery not only offers relief from physical pain and discomfort but also improves one’s emotional state of being.
Breast reduction recovery periods are minimal. Ariel Winter was back to living an active life within a week of undergoing the surgery. The bruising and swelling go away within a few weeks while the scars fade over time. It is an absolutely safe procedure that even new mommies battling post-pregnancy flab can undergo.
Ariel Winter has certainly put to rest those hateful remarks about Ariel Winter bra size with her brave decision. She is now leading an active and pain-free life doing all that she loves and dressing up the way she likes. She sports a more proportionate figure and certainly looks her age. In fact, undergoing the breast reduction surgery is likely to amp up her career prospects; she will now be offered more roles that are closer to her age.
Coco Austin and her rapper husband, Ice-T, have been partners in many joint ventures. They have starred in the hugely popular reality show, Ice Loves Coco, which was aired on E! from 2011 to 2013. They have recently launched their own talk show, Ice & Coco. But probably their most exciting venture till date is going to be their first child together; Ice-T and wife Coco are expecting their bundle of joy, a girl, in just a few months from now. In their latest talk show, they will reveal all about the pregnancy, and one wonders, if Coco will have something to say about the breast augmentation job that she has admitted to getting done.
Coco Austin and Her Breast Augmentation Surgery
Ice-T’s wife Coco is more famous for her assets than all her modeling assignments, Playboy photo spreads, the imminently forgettable film roles, and TV shows.
Coco Austin, 37, has admitted to going under the knife for breast augmentation but after decades spent denying it. She had her breasts enlarged to a curvy 39DD when she was 18 years old. But her announcement didn’t come as a surprise. Her breast augmentationbefore-and-after photos are all over the Internet; Coco merely confirmed what everybody else knew all along.
According to Coco Austin, she felt compelled to undergo breast augmentation to balance out her larger-than-life derrière, which she maintains is au natural. Coco had been modeling for lingerie since she was 14 years old. Back then, the J-Lo curvy backside was not in vogue, and Coco was often told that she was “fat.” She felt insecure and feared her modeling assignments would dry up. So she got a boob job done, and her career perked up. Clearly, the breast augmentation cost and staying cooped in during the breast augmentation recovery period were worthwhile.
Coco Austin looks stunning in her breast augmentation photos. Not only do her enhanced assets balance out her large hips but they also add dollops of earthy voluptuousness to her figure. What helps is that Coco has fabulously toned and firm muscles, thanks to hours of sweating out at the gym. She admits to being a fan of the plank, an exercise that she claims gives a full-body workout.
Breast Augmentation and Other Surgeries by Coco
Coco Austin may have admitted to a breast augmentation surgery, but she continues to deny any other corrective procedures done on her. But her breast augmentation before-and-after photos also point to a nose job. And although Coco has appeared on a TV show where a doctor proclaimed her ample derrière to be real, some people continue to be doubtful.
If Coco Austin has been under the knife for anything other than breast augmentation, you have to admit that the procedures were pulled off marvelously. Ice-T’s wife is only 5’2” but her assets make her attractive. Breast augmentation is not just about inserting implants; there is a touch of creativity and aesthetics involved in the procedure. Take a look at the breast augmentation photos that do the rounds on the Internet, both the botched-up jobs and the successes, and you will get the idea.
As Coco announced her now upcoming role as Mommy To Be…We wonder if she will take the next radical steps to reclaim her famous moneymaking post-baby bod with NY Mommy Makeover…

It seems like public figures are joining in on the infamous Kylie Jenner plump lip frenzy too! Former Jersey Shore reality star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi started off pumping her fists to pumping her lips. Snooki took to Instagram on Monday night to show off her new pout to the world.
Snooki sought the help of Dr. Kassir Ramtin to help her get her new set of smoochers. Dr. Kassir is a world-renowned cosmetic surgeon noted for his great work on other celebs, so who better for Snooks to go to other than him? Snooki posed with Dr. Kassir in the office after her lip injections and posted it to Instagram, captioning it with “Welp I did it kids! Tried my first lip plumping and so doing more. #noshame thanks @drkassir.”
Celebrities in the public eye oftentimes try to hide the fact that they had any work done at all. Snooki is definitely different from all the rest and plunged right in to the media, openly sharing her procedure and results with the world.
You don’t need to be a celeb like Snooki to know that haters lurk in every corner on the web, so it comes as no surprise that many of her 7.4 million followers had a nasty thing or two to say about her recent procedure. With hate comments regarding her new pout being spilled out, Snooki posted a close-up pic on Instagram explaining why she got her lip injections in the first place.
“I’ve always hated my thin lips and never thought I had the balls to get needles in my lip to perfect them but I did,” she wrote to her followers. We all know that Snooki has always felt insecure and struggled with her thin unimpressive lips. She has even posted pictures in the past of her making intense kissy duck faces hoping her followers would agree she looked like the reigning lip queen Kylie Jenner.
Snooki’s new kissers look fabulous, and it makes her even more fabulous that she got them done for no one else but her own self. Getting cosmetic procedures done doesn’t always have to be about jumping on the bandwagon and going with the current trend, rather feeling self-confident and beautiful in your own skin. Being in the spotlight, people are always going to have something negative to say, so why not do it anyway if it’s going to make you genuinely happy. Snooks finished her Instagram caption with “I love my natural beauty, but being able to enhance my lips to make me feel better about myself is life.”
Of course, where there are haters, there are always more haters. Commenters began complaining on her most recent lip photo about how her new lips look unnatural and uneven. If you know anything about Snooki, she always shoots back at Internet trolls with sass and humor.
“Thank you for that observation. My lips are naturally like that. I have to go again and gradually even them,” she tweeted back to someone calling her lips asymmetrical. Another twitter user even went as far as saying she should have skipped out on the lip injections and gotten brain injections instead. Snooki of course laughed this one off as well, simply responding back with “Good one,” complete with a laughing emoji to show how she really doesn’t give a crap about what anyone thinks.
Snooki loves her new voluminous pout and won’t ever let the trolls of the internet tear her down. She claims to be scheduled for a follow up with Dr. Kassir soon for more lip injections. Hurry up Snooki, we’re all waiting!
Older fans know him as the one of the most inspiring icons defining heroism in athletic competition. Younger fans know him as the patriarch to the Kardashian/Jenner clan, leading the trends and the pop culture forefront for the last decade.
Bruce was always subject to media scrutiny over his cosmetic tweaks over the years, but I do not believe anyone saw this transformation coming or recognized his attempts as a way to feminize his overall appearance and begin his transition into Caitlyn. With the world taking notice, liberation is in order.
Jenner’s gender reveal was confirmed Monday with a Vanity Fair cover set to break records and break barriers.
Highly accredited expert, board-certified Dr. Ramtin Kassir specializes in transgender facial surgeries. In regards to transgender procedures he states, “The most requested procedure for men is a rhinoplasty because that is the first thing that softens the features and makes them more feminine.”
Dr. Kassir also concludes with insight on the emotional transition that goes along with the physical.
“It’s required at least one or two years of previous psychiatric counseling prior to even embarking on any of these surgical treatments.”- Kassir
Dr. Kassir can be seen discussing his requests for transgender plastic surgery as a medical insider in an ‘expo feature’ aired on The Insider here.
A University of Texas at Austin graduate, Ramtin Kassir, M.D. went on to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Dr. Kassir finished his Post-Doctoral training with a Residency in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery from the University of Texas Medical Branch, then anda Fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from the University of South Florida. Dr. Kassir is Triple board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology, American Board of Sleep Medicine, and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
In private practice since 1997, Dr. Kassir has extensive experience in the fields of facial plastic and cosmetic surgery, endoscopic surgery and laser surgery.
Look in almost any list or article that discusses bad plastic surgery, and you will likely find a photo of a woman who is known as “the Catwoman.” aka Jocelyn Wildenstein.
Jocelyn is one of the most well-known examples of what happens when plastic surgery goes horribly, horribly wrong. For those of you who want plastic surgery for the wrong reasons, want to go to a cheap doctor, or want to go through an extreme makeover that people are warning against, her story is a warning that you should heed.
For Jocelyn, her insane transformation started when she married the super, rich socialite Alec Wildenstein. She had everything that she wanted in her life as a New York City socialite – money, fame, great clothing, connections, and friends. However, her life with Alec soon became further and further from the perfect dream life that she had so wanted.
From what sources say, Alec was actually rather abusive to Jocelyn and made no qualms about sleeping with other women. This led Jocelyn down a very strange path. During her marriage, Jocelyn often visited Alec’s personal collection of live big cats in his enclosure as a way to reduce stress. Yep, he owned lions and tigers as pets. According to Jocelyn, he loved those animals more than anything else in the world – even her.
As the years went by, Jocelyn became more and more desperate to try to win back Alec’s affection. By the time she hit 50 years of age, she decided that the only way she could get him back is to go under the knife. The first couple of surgeries seemed to have a positive effect on her relationship with Alec, but it didn’t take too long for him to decide that she alone was still not enough for him.
This is where the story takes a turn for the nightmarish.
Jocelyn decided that plastic surgery worked, and that it was time to take drastic measures. In her clearly unstable condition, she decided that it was perfectly logical to ask the plastic surgeon to make her more like the big cats that Alec loved so much. Somehow, she managed to convince the shocked plastic surgeon to do it.
As one would expect, the plastic surgery outcome didn’t exactly go over as well as she’d hoped. Rumor has it that once she had left the plastic surgeon’s office, potential clients who were in the waiting room immediately bolted in fear that they would end up looking like her. Another rumor suggests that Alec screamed when he saw her face after the surgery. Disheartened, she decided to go back under the knife to correct the surgery. (It only made things worse.)
