Actress Cate Blanchett has maintained for a long time that she is against plastic surgery. She has said on numerous occasions that the thought of it scares her. She says that she has “pity” for young women who have it. She’s quoted in Fashion etc.:
““There’s been a decade or probably more of people doing interventions on their faces and their bodies, and now people are seeing that [in the] long term, it’s not so great,” she said. “I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do. I just know what works for me. I’d be too frightened about what it means long-term. Looking at women in their 20s doing this stuff, in the end all you see is the work. It doesn’t fill me with admiration; it fills me with pity.” There have been reports in the news lately concerning young women in their 20s who believe that Botox injections will somehow prevent them from getting wrinkles. Most medical experts including Allergan the makers of Botox say that there is no evidence that Botox is a preventative measure for wrinkles. Celebrities who choose not to have plastic surgery (or at least talk about it) seem to be rare and in a small way earn publicity by doing so. Cate Blanchett drew her line in the sand a long time ago against plastic surgery procedures. While that seems to have served her well, it is hard to understand why she has pity on those who choose plastic surgery. Dr. Kim reminds patients that celebrity endorsements or warnings concerning plastic surgery should always be taken with a grain of salt. It is their job to be in the spotlight and that is always the main purpose for everything they say and do. The majority of consumers embrace the idea of plastic surgery as a way to help fight the appearance of aging. The most popular surgical procedures include facelift, blepharoplasty, and brow lift. Dr. Kim is careful to help patients maintain their most natural appearance while improving the signs of facial aging by an average of 10 years. In most circles that is nothing to pity.
