The Survey was included in the electronic version of the Society's newsletter, ISAPS News, published three times a year in partnership with Quality Medical Publishing (http://www.qmp.com), the world's leading publisher of plastic surgery books, media and online education.
Breasts and lips were the leading categories for celebrity choices by women followed by buttocks, nose and abdomen. The categories are listed in order of popularity.
Breasts - The clear choice for breast look-alikes was Pamela Anderson, followed by Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen, American pop princess Britney Spears and Xuxa, a popular Brazilian entertainer. Interestingly, this question elicited negative comments from surgeons expressing their patients' opinions. A significant percentage of responding doctors reported that women often mentioned celebrities they did not want to look like. Pamela Anderson also led this group, followed by Dolly Parton and Victoria Beckham.
Lips - Angelina Jolie was the overwhelming leader as the lips of choice for women undergoing this procedure. The alternate reference for lips was Julia Roberts.
Buttocks - The leading choice was Jennifer Lopez - by a huge percentage. Other choices included Juliana Paes of Brazil, and Americans Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock.
Nose - There was no doubt that Nicole Kidman's nose was a clear favorite for women around the world. Secondary choices included Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Xuxa, and in a nod to classicism, Grace Kelly and Tasmanian born Princess Mary of Denmark.
Abdomen - In some cultures, revealing midriffs is a fashion statement. The favorite choice among women around the world is Giselle Bundchen, followed closely by Shakira, Demi Moore, Britney Spears (early in her career), and Thalia (Mexico).
