Think today’s hot young celebs are almost too flawless?
It’s probably not just in your head.
Popular Instagrammer Dana Omari is devoted to her mission of outing stars for their subtle plastic surgery procedures. Her account IGFamousByDana, which currently has more than 200,000 followers, posts head-scratching side-by-side photos of celebrities, models and reality stars, often accompanied by references to their public claims that they’ve never had work done. But how else to explain their shrinking noses, shifting eye shapes and evolving body types?
Stars — and their rabid defenders — will say the changes can be attributed to things such as weight loss and aging. But Omari, 32 — a self-appointed nip/tuck detective who works as a consultation manager at a medical spa — isn’t buying it. “Think about the people in your life that you know, when they’ve lost weight, how they’ve aged. They don’t change like crazy and in the span of a couple of years, unless it was really intense weight loss or they went and had work done, you know?”
Same goes for the suggestion, sometimes offered up by loyal fans, that high-profile women in their 20s — such as Ariana Grande, 28; Kendall Jenner, 26; and Kylie Jenner, 24 — are still going through puberty. “If you’re still in puberty at 25, there is something very wrong, you need to go to the doctor, that’s not normal,” Omari said.
Indeed, younger and younger celebs are going under the knife, getting procedures — including facelifts — typically associated with aging clientele. Omari, a registered dietician living in Houston, Texas, believes this is due to the pressures actresses and models face in today’s hyper-connected world. “We have direct access [on social media] to criticize them, critique them, compliment them, whatever it is, and I think that it plays a major role in wanting to look perfect or Instagrammable at any moment,” she said.
Omari is quick to point out that her account isn’t about shaming anyone — with one exception.
“I do feel strongly about holding some of these celebrities accountable, [particularly] people that are very adamant that they are natural when they’re not, and/or they’re selling something,” she said. When it comes to leading ladies using their platforms, and their polished looks, to hawk products — whether multivitamins or skincare serums — she contends that it verges on “unethical” when they attribute their perfect appearances to lifestyle choices and self-care.
Instead, Omari wishes that the rich and famous would be more upfront about their relationships with their surgeons. “All of these people are very beautiful,” she said. “[But] they didn’t yoga-and-water their way there.”
