…is the most popular request that flood cosmetic surgeons. And there are more who inspire such extreme measures among their fans.
Last year, Bollywood was abuzz with reports about actor Katrina Kaif going under the knife to get fuller lips, making hers one of the many speculated plastic surgery stories afloat in the industry.
While the actor may have kissed the rumours away with her no comments stance, there’s no denying that her luscious lips have caught the fancy of not only men, but also the women here.
Cosmetic surgeons across the city reveal that the actor has left Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson far behind when it comes to women wanting hot lips. Not only that, Shahid Kapoor’s abs score over Gerard Butler’s torso and Shilpa Shetty’s waistline beats that of Keira Knightley.
When it comes to aping celebs, it’s looking desi all the way for the narcissist.
Renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr Lakshyajit Dhami, who sees an increasing number of women wanting to go in for lip augmentation procedures, says, “Angelina has a sexy pout, but it’s too in the face for women here. So, unless you are a celebrity, women are not too keen on it. But I do see a lot of women hoping to get lips like that of Katrina Kaif.”
Even though well-known cosmetic surgeon Dr Mohan Thomas discourages cosmetic surgery aspirants who demand to look like their favourite celebrity, he does admit that he sees several of them.
“What they don’t realise is that such procedures can repair, not create something new altogether,” he says.
Cosmetic surgeons reveal that there’s a demand also for John Abraham’s derriere, Preity Zinta’s dimples, and Shilpa Shetty’s waistline.
As for the abs, people give a thumbs up to Shahid Kapoor’s lean muscled look and choose that over Aamir Khan’s beefy six-pack abs.
“Since Dostana has released, John’s butt has been a hit with the men. Priyanka Chopra’s pout too is a regular request,” informs Dr Dhami.
