Celebrities are a special breed of people, for many reasons. There is who they are and who they want us to believe they are. One of those aspects that bring out their interesting nature is plastic surgery. Today, we feature the most blatant Botox cases. There are those who have no problem admitting Botox implants, Botox improvements, Botox gone wrong and non-surgical Botox. There is also the other breed that would want to deny, but Botox before and after celebrity photos tell a different story.
While for others you may need to take a closer look and have a keener eye to tell whether they have had botox implants. There are others who did not stop at one injection, they kept at it.
A peak into Botox and what it entails
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there are slightly over 14 Million cosmetic surgeries performed in 2016. This amounted to $10.1bn. Out of these, the most common procedures were nose jobs, buttock lifts and Botox implants.
When you go for a Botox injection procedure, the surgeon injects a compound known as botulinum toxin. This is done using a syringe. Botox injections are mostly done on the face. The compound works by blocking the nerves to that particular area. This in turn eliminates or reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
While it may be considered extreme, many of the celebrities go for botox injections regularly. For them, the cost of botox injection is no issue. Most of the plastic surgery clinics receive more celebrity traffic just before major awards such as the Academy awards and other red carpet events.
Celebrities such as Simon Cowell, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Jennie Garth are few of those who have openly admitted to getting botox injections to keep them youthful as they age. There are also those celebrities who are addicted to Botox and other types of cosmetic surgeries. Classic examples are Bruce Jenner, Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffin, Janice Dickinson among others. These celebrities have had multiple procedures and body modifications including Botox implants.
How can you identify Botox use?
While it may not be obvious to the naked eye, there are several tell signs. Again, if the injection is done by a professional it may be very hard to tell. One of the surest signs is when one is over 40 years and they do not have wrinkles. Another sign is frozen features. A high shine area on the face is another indicator that someone has been under a needle. This can be evident to the naked eye or even by looking at a photo. There are also those who tend to sweat more around the injected area.
Whether they blatantly agree to botox injections or not, there are those celebrities that actually look better with injections. Again, image is everything when you have a huge following.
