Remembering MTV’s “I Want a Famous Face”: Is It Possible?

Remembering MTV’s “I Want a Famous Face”: Is It Possible?In the early 2000’s there was a popular show on MTV called, I Want A Famous Face that followed individuals who were striving to mimic the looks of famous celebrities through plastic surgery. Unfortunately, the show typically ended with someone who was trying so hard to look like someone else, when in reality the surgeries made them look much different.

Trying to mimic the looks of someone famous can be difficult for a number of reasons.

Plastic Surgeons Can’t Perform Miracles

While some patients may want to look like Angelina Jolie or Katy Perry, the reality is that mimicking someone else’s looks is incredibly difficult. As human beings, we each have a very unique appearance and completely altering our natural look can make us appear fake or much worse than before the plastic surgery procedure was ever performed.

If you are interested in plastic surgery, it is important to sit down with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to determine the ways in which your existing looks can be accentuated. Chances are that you have certain features that, with a bit of work, can look much better. Focusing on becoming your most beautiful self is a much better approach than trying to look like someone famous – especially when there is no resemblance at all.

Part Plastic Surgeon, Part Psychologist

One of a plastic surgeon’s most difficult jobs is trying to weed out patients that are not mentally ready for plastic surgery. Patients that have dreams of looking exactly like a famous movie star may not be good candidates for plastic surgery. It is important that both the patient and the plastic surgeon agree on the goals and benefits of surgery before the surgery ever begins. Board Certified plastic surgeons are much more likely to be honest with patients and possibly even refuse to do procedures which could alter a patient’s body for the worse.

Having Plastic Surgery for the Wrong Reasons

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having plastic surgery. If you are looking to improve your appearance and/or quality of life, you may be a good candidate for plastic surgery. However, if you truly think that after plastic surgery that you will be a completely new person and any insecurities that you may have will be gone – you are likely not being realistic. Plastic surgery is meant to help with small improvements in your looks, not completely change who you are. If you are completely unhappy, plastic surgery is not the answer to your problems.
