These days plastic surgery is everywhere. Not many celebrities will admit they've had work done, but we're fans of full disclosure (why present an unrealistic ideal?). Some women look downright scary after turning to the knife, while others are able to walk away looking fresher and renewed, making everyone wonder what their secret is. We spoke to Dr. Edward Miranda, a San Francisco-based plastic surgeon, about the tell-tale signs of face lifts and injections. While he wouldnt comment on any celebrities in particular, we used his information to make our own educated guesses about who's had what done.
As far as injectable fillers go, some of the most telling signs a patient has been treated are visible bruising and swelling of the treated area, says Dr. Miranda. Possible injection points are the lips, around the mouth and nasolabial folds. Lindsay Lohan has been sporting puffier lips for a while now, but when she showed up to an event with a much fuller face, we couldn't help but wonder if too many fillers were the culprit.

When looking for signs of a boob job, Dr. Miranda says cleavage without a bra and visible ripples of the side of the breast are clear indicators. We like the fact that Kourtney freely admits shes had implants put in. It makes looking at her perfectly enhanced bosom a little easier to deal with. 10 Celebrities Who Tried Showing Side Boob
