Times, they are a changin’—and plastic surgery is not as taboo as it was even a decade ago. Non-surgical treatments are often considered basic maintenance, patients are sharing their personal journeys on social media, and celebrities are opening up about having a little help.
A new kind of body positivity
In the past, plastic surgery made tabloid headlines for primarily negative reasons, with famous faces being blasted for their personal choices. While this kind of sensationalism still occurs (remember the cruel attacks on Renee Zellweger and Meg Ryan?), we love that we are now seeing celebrities featured for their openness and acceptance of cosmetic enhancement.
In fact, a number of stars are speaking out about how happy they are with their decision to have plastic surgery.
Here are some of our favorite stories from this year’s headlines:
“If it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing!” Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco opens up about the best decision she’s ever made
The Big Bang Theory actress was anything but shy when she opened up to Women’s Health about her choice to get breast implants, stating it was “the best thing [she] ever did.” In addition to breast augmentation, the star has also had a nose job and, most recently, had fillers injected into her neck line.
She has no regrets and loves herself more than ever.

After years of having the uncomfortable attention and weight, she decided to have breast reduction in 2015, bring her down from a 32F to a 34D.
When Glamor Magazine asked Winter about why she chose to undergo breast surgery, she stated, “I got it for myself. I can’t even really put it into words about how amazing it feels to really feel right.”

Rapper and musician Iggy Azalea is known for being one of the more candid and honest celebrities—and she has openly and frequently discussed her choice to enhance her looks with the help of breast implants and rhinoplasty. In fact, she even wished her plastic surgeon a happy birthday on Instagram, stating, “He is the reason I have fabulously perky boobs…”
“There was nothing wrong with me. I think it’s a personal choice and anybody, man or woman, they should be able to make an informed decision. If you want to change something, then that’s up to you.”Iggy Azalea
