Landmark Worldwide Survey of Leading Plastic Surgeons
Jolie, Kidman, Anderson, Loren, Bundchen, Pitt, and Clooney Favored
NEW YORK, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- We hear it every day, "Oh, I wish I could look like Angelina." Or, "Oh, to have Brad's abs -- I'd do anything." With increasing availability of aesthetic plastic surgery, ongoing improvement and refinements in procedures, and numerous payment plans available, some of these wishes are coming true. But do the celebrity images that overwhelm popular media have any influence on the decisions people make about their plastic surgery?
The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS - http://www.isaps.org), the world's leading authority in the field, recently asked surgeons: What Influences Do Celebrities Have on the Decisions Patients Make?
The survey was sent to over 20,000 plastic surgeons in 84 countries. Surgeons were asked to connect celebrity names with eleven popular procedures for both men and women. The findings of this non-scientific, anecdotal questionnaire revealed fascinating trends. As the Society's President, Dr. Bryan Mendelson of Melbourne, Australia observed in a recent interview, "What we learned from this survey underscores the Society's on-going international efforts in continuing public education about how to choose the right plastic surgeon. People need to research a surgeon's training, experience and affiliations so they can make informed decisions and know what to reasonably expect from plastic surgery as well as non-invasive procedures."
If there was any doubt that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are the
world's number one celebrity couple, the ISAPS Survey puts those doubts to
rest. Jolie and Pitt's names came up more often and for more body areas
than virtually any other individuals. There were also numerous local
celebrities who influenced some choices and a number of references to
