What do you think of all these celebrity women (and some of the men) getting all kinds of cosmetic procedures done on their faces? To name just a few, Cher, Meg Ryan, Joan Rivers, Pricilla Presley, Suzanne Somers, Rachel Welch, and so many more..... Do you think they honestly look good? In my opinion they look absolutely scarey! I'm not trying to be mean. But I just don't understand how anyone can do that to themselves. Once beautiful women and now that they get older they just brutilize their faces. I don't like getting older either, believe me, but I think they go way over board. And the lip injections I can't even describe how I feel about those. Ridiculous is one word. We all know they do it because they want to look younger. But the out-come is the opposite. They look older and they just don't look human. I kind of worry if this is how all women will look in the future. I would like to hear how some of you all feel about this.

"scarey" as in not a "natural human being looking person"

So sad. Jocelyn Wildenstein -
Before: (sorry so big)

After:


It's one thing to get 'refreshed' but they sure do go overboard. It must be a psychological affliction - they think they look better. I guess they just don't see how disfigured they've actually become.

Not everyone is like the Catwoman (Wildenstein.)
My honest opinion is that if someone wants to do it, fine, it's their business.
I know people who have had "work done" on their eyes who look okay, certainly not like the Catwoman or any other overly surgically enhanced person.
But even with those ladies, you look at them an automatically register that they have had the work done. They don't look unattractive at all, they just look kinda artificial...I don't know how to describe it, you just look--and know.
But that's fine for them, at least they look human, unlike some of the celebrities with their pouty collegen lips, squinty eyes and stretched back foreheads.
Burt Reynolds looks downright scary these days.

Some look absolutely crazy. Pricilla Presley, Kenny Rogers, Wayne Newton, Joan Rivers, Pamela Anderson, Michael and LaToya Jackson look pretty bad imo.

When I look at this picture, I just feel so bad for this woman that her self-esteem was so low that she had to disfigure herself. As far others that have a little corrective surgery and feel better about themselves, so be it.

Moderation. I think some people have plastic surgery and look nice. However, some seem to just continue to do procedure after procedure and then it seems "less is more" if you know what I mean.

Shame on me, but she looks like a Jim Henson muppet.

And my honest opinion is when this is done is excess it is weird. I do not think that a doctor should let someone go this far. I mean, she obviously looks worse, not better, right?!
I think that if a person has a feature problem that needs to be fixed, then so be it. Like someone else said, moderation.

Once if fine, twice is 'pushing it,' & three times is just too much.
