Lisa Rinna's Lip Injection Confession
We always speculate which celebs have gotten some work done and which haven't, but it's very rare when a celeb admits to getting surgery and then fesses up to getting surgery to reduce the original work they had done.
That's exactly what Lisa Rinna did last week when she and hubby Harry Hamlin went on the TODAY Show to promote their books and new reality show, Harry Loves Lisa.
Rinna admitted to getting lip injections last spring after she was criticized for a comment she made about Heidi Montag's plastic surgery adventures. Now, she's speaking out again on her latest surgery to reduce her lip size.
"My lips started to define who I am. That bothered me," she told Meredith Vieira. We give serious kudos to Rinna for speaking out about the pink elephant (with pleasantly plumped lips) in the room and wonder if talking about plastic surgery will become a new celeb trend. More importantly, we wonder how many celebs who have gone through surgery are really truly happy with the results.
We asked Real Beauty expert, Robert M. Schwarcz, M.D., a leading facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon in New York City what to do if you or someone you know goes under the knife and is less than thrilled with the results. "Patients go through a tremendous amount of guilt and remorse for having undergone the procedure," says Schwarcz. "Many obsess on fixing it immediately to get back to the way they were. It is important to take a step back and let the body and mind heal with time. Once that happens, see a doctor who specializes in that particular area of the body (e.g., eyes, breast) and one who can deal with the complications. It is best to find a surgeon who does not only do reconstruction on a regular basis, but also does cosmetic procedures. Seek multiple opinions and make an educated decision."
What do you think about Rinna's decision to talk about getting lip injections? Does it need to happen more often or is it none of our business to begin with? Plus, watch the interview below.
