Hollywood Stars Are Looking More Natural and Taking a New Approach to Cosmetic Surgery

So Long, Extreme Cosmetic Surgery: Hollywood's Gone Natural

In a land where excessive beauty looks and cosmetic procedures have dominated for decades, it seems like things are toning down in Tinseltown. Hollywood's "new natural," for example, encompasses looks that are not just fresh and laid-back, but relatable. Think: Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, Paula Patton, and Blake Lively.

"There is a greater acceptance of women and aging, and a feeling that women can be beautiful without doing all of that," casting director Sarah Finn told WWD. This doesn't mean women of Hollywood aren't working with their teams of derms, dentists, aestheticians, or beauty entourage any less, it just means it appears the focus is moving more toward highlighting one's individuality, steering away from a traditional cookie cutter look. To find out how, just keep reading.

Hollywood's "New Natural":

  • Botox treatments: Instead of trying to eliminate wrinkles, it's more about subtly softening them. Thanks to refinements in injectable procedures, this also means less frozen faces.
  • Facelifts: Oh, they still happen, but the focus is on pulling skin up as opposed to diagonally, resulting in more natural-looking mugs.
  • Boob jobs: The days of women walking around with disproportionate breast sizes are limited.
  • Perfectly imperfect teeth: Chiclet smiles are becoming a thing of the past.
  • Rhinoplasty: Instead of overly dainty, unnatural-looking noses, surgeons are choosing to keep the character of their clients' schnozes intact.
  • Fillers in the face: Doctors are looking at other options, like NaturalFill, which results in "a more contoured, softer look as opposed to a more elevated, arched, extreme look," plastic surgeon Robert Guida explained.

Yes, some of them have definitely had stuff done, just in a more subtle not so in-your-face kind of way.

i dont know about Paula (never heard of her) but Kate hudson recently got an obvious boob job. not tacky or porny but obvious since that kind of boob growth cannot be natural. maybe she's had other things tweaked on her face too? this article implies that those celebs have had things done without becoming cookie cutter faces or frozen faces

Paula Patton hasn't had plastic surgery. I was unaware Kate Hudson did either.

You guys aren't understanding what the post says. Title: So Long, Extreme Cosmetic Surgery: Hollywood's Gone Natural Line in question: Think: Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, Paula Patton, and Blake Lively. They have all had cosmetic surgery but without looking cookie cutter or porn star or frozen. That's the point of this post.

Blake lively also got a boob job on top of her nose job. Aniston also had a nose job :/ There is nothing really "natural" in the celebs. listed above.

Those big fake bright white teeth don't look so natural.

My best friend had a nose job. I think if you do it for the right reasons you'll be okay. If you expect plastic surgery to transform your life dramatically or make you happy you'll be disappointed. If you're simply unhappy about a bump in your nose or something its not really a big deal. Who are we to judge what a person does with their face. I wear makeup, I pluck my brows. Can't judge.

I think some of you are missing the point of the article. They are talking about subtle, "natural" looking plastic surgery not 100% natural beauty.

Now if young stars could forget about plastic surgery altogether...

I'm fairly certain Blake has had rhinoplasty, though what she had done was subtle and fits her face.
