What celebrities have the most influence over the nation’s looks?

We recently commissioned a study of 2,000 adults to find out which celebrities have the most influence over the nation’s looks.

Angelina Jolie’s eyes, JLO’s bottom and Michelle Keegan’s lips are among the most sought-after features for British women.

For British men it’s Brad Pitt’s hair, Cristiano Ronaldo’s legs and David Beckham’s derrière.

Speaking about the results, Pall Mall Patient Experience Manager, Cheryl Cooper said: “It’s interesting and fun to see who the British public would love to look like and who inspires cosmetic surgery.

“The same names appeared in a lot of the lists, showing the people we’re most inspired by – mostly Kate Middleton and Cristiano Ronaldo, suggesting men want muscles and sporting ability while women wish for classic and timeless looks.

“It’s not unusual for cosmetic surgery patients to have been inspired by other people they’ve seen and images of famous people to help them articulate the end goal they’re after.”

The study also found one in eight adults have had cosmetic surgery, with the most popular procedures being breast enlargement, hair transplants and abdominal etching. More than a quarter of them have also had dermal fillers, scar removal or correction and liposuction.

Of the 12 per cent who have had work done, 42 per cent were inspired by a famous person’s looks. And four in five of those who have had surgery are open about the fact they’ve had cosmetic surgery while 60 per cent would have more done.

Mr. Raghavan continued: “The main reasons behind having procedures included improving confidence (69 per cent) and to feel more attractive (55 per cent).

“But many had surgery following a lifechanging experience such as childbirth (50 per cent), an accident or illness (48 per cent) and weight loss (43 per cent).”

Prior to going under the knife people thought about it for an average of four years.

Of those who haven’t yet taken the plunge, 23 per cent would consider getting cosmetic surgery, with a face or neck lift, tummy tuck and liposuction the top things they’d want done.

It’s clear to see that social media, celebrity photos and reality TV shows are among the top inspirations for people to consider getting surgery.

Pall Mall facial plastic surgeon Mr. Raghavan said: “Although pictures of celebrities and influencers are a good way for patients to articulate what they’re looking to achieve from

surgery, ultimately our job is to make sure that the patient has realistic expectations and understands what is achievable.

“Most patients we see want to improve a part of their body that’s holding them back from enjoying everyday life – they have typically been considering surgery for between 4-6 years and understand that it’s not something to be taken lightly.

“When this is the case, cosmetic surgery can be truly lifechanging.”
