From Clay Aiken to Tara Reid
Most celebrities are quite secretive about their personal experience with liposuction. Many are afraid of harsh criticism about their decision to undergo liposculpture, while others want the public to believe that everything about them is natural (though most of the time they’re not fooling anyone!). A few stars, however, are more realistic, and openly discuss their past liposuction –both good and bad.
The Good: Clay Aiken
Clay Aiken may not be telling the whole truth about his cosmetic surgery, but he has admitted to getting chin liposuction while having corrective jaw surgery: “I was like, ‘You know what, while I’m already down (anesthetized), go ahead and take the vacuum in there and suck the fat out of my chin.'”
The rumor mill speculates he may also have gotten jaw implants to accentuate his slimmer chin. Whether or not these claims are true, the liposuction itself has been a definitive success. This video discusses Aiken’s transformation.
The Bad: Tara Reid
In 2004, Tara Reid got liposuction. Why? In her words to US magazine: “I got lipo because even though I was skinny, I wanted, I’m not going to lie – a six-pack.” That plan backfired dramatically. She suffered from extremely saggy and puckered stomach skin after liposuction which made her belly look like that of a woman in her sixties, rather than her twenties: “I had body contouring, but it all went wrong. My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing.”
In 2006, she had a revision procedure to correct the mistake. Whether she went to an unskilled surgeon the first time, or something just went wrong, one thing is clear from her before and after liposuction photos: she didn’t need the procedure in the first place. She also had unrealistic expectations about surgery–together a recipe for disaster.
