Plastic surgery for celebrity look-alike

Deborah Davenport spent thousands of dollars to look ‘almost’ like Kate Winslet

Davenport who owns a real estate technology consulting firm says that she lusted after Kate’s round face that she used to see in several magazines and also her movies. According to her, she was unhappy with the way she looked for decades. Many people likened her to Cameron Diaz, which upset her. This was the tirning point in deciding to change the shape of her nose. ‘[It] just seemed to get fatter and fatter every year, I [would] look at photos and [be] like, “Oh my God, what’s happening to me?” Deborah also added that it is ironic she had work done to ‘look like someone I think hasn’t had surgery.’

Expert says that there is blooming trend of wanting to look like someone else, especially Hollywood celebrities. Plastic surgeons confirm that they receive many patients who want another face which look like one of the stars. ‘I had a patient who went from doctor to doctor trying to get surgery to look like Brad Pitt,’ says Dr Amy Wechsler, a dermatologist and psychiatrist in New York.

So who do you want to look like?
