Most of the time, talent is not enough to make it big in show business. Impeccable acting or singing skills are not assurance that an aspiring talent will succeed in the entertainment industry. Whether we accept it or not, good looks is still the passport to fame and fortune. Except, of course, if one is taking the comedy route, where being gorgeous can be more of a disadvantage.
Celebrities very well know that they have to have the “right” face, cup size and figure if they want to survive in the entertainment industry. Keeping their celebrity status also means keeping their youthful good looks and slim bodies, unless they are ready to accept mother roles. This is the reason why most of our current showbiz personalities have undergone or are willing to take cosmetic enhancements to continue their claim to stardom.
Advancements in technology have made “shopping” for a better-looking nose or a new set of udders quick and even painless. Getting rid of unwanted fat is safer and faster now with the help of state of the art laser machines that can pulverize blubber without undergoing surgery. Wrinkles and other facial imperfections can be easily “erased” with non-invasive means like botox and fillers. Having fairer and smoother complexion is made easier by just popping a pill or having Gluthatione injected into the bloodstream. The possibilities for cosmetic enhancements are endless and the results can be astonishing.
However popular aesthetic enhancements have become, expect our celebrities to lie to their teeth that they have undergone any cosmetic treatment, even if it is so darn obvious! We don’t see anything wrong with cosmetic enhancements per se, what we don’t understand are the denials! Oh well, that is just the way it goes but retokados are kidding no one but themselves!
Here are some of your favorite Filipino celebrities who have undergone major facial and body transformations.
