Celebrity Plastic Surgery: What’s the Golden Ratio of Beauty?

Many celebrities seem to have a flawlessface and body. One example is former Teen Mom star FarrahAbraham, who revealed she enhanced her looks through plastic surgeries. Somewould argue celebrities like her have achieved the “golden ratio of beauty.”

There are also fans who pay big bucks to look like celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Brad Pitt. What is the “perfect” look and is it possible to achieve? Showbiz Cheat Sheet chatted with Orlando-based plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Trevisani about what the golden ratio of beauty means and if it’s possible to achieve.

Showbiz Cheat Sheet: What is the golden ratio of beauty?

Dr. Thomas Trevisani: The term golden ratio has its roots in ancient Greece. Another name for it is Phi, named after a Greek sculptor. It’s a way of measuring and determining aesthetic ratios that are determined to be optimal for appearance and function. The term has applicability in almost all aspects of life, including architecture, art, music, and graphic design.

CS: Which celebrities are considered aesthetically ‘perfect’?

TT: Beauty, in and of itself, is a very arbitrary determination. In the world of aesthetics, it can be applied to not only humans but many aspects of our lives in nature. Personally, I believe Hollywood has moved away from female classic beauties. For example, who can compare to Audrey Hepburn? Plus, we cannot forget Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Vivien Leigh, and my favorite, Greta Garbo. Now from the male standpoint, George Clooney, Cary Grant, and Brad Pitt come to mind quite readily.

CS: Is it possible to achieve the golden ratio of beauty through plastic surgery?

TT: Generally speaking, in-person attractiveness canbe quite different than on-camera attractiveness. There are relationships inthe face that can be improved with plastic surgery. It’s a challenge to changethe length with relationships, but in the extreme sense, it is possible.

It’s a challenge to change the length to the width versusthe forehead to the middle third, to the lower third of the face. In otherwords, it’s more anatomically feasible to alter the upper third of the face,the middle third of the face with a nose surgery, and the lower third of theface with chin augmentation, than it is to alter the length of the face to thewidth. In some instances, this may require deep bony work to both the skull andthe jaw.

CS: What are the pros and cons of trying to achieve a‘perfect’ celebrity look?

TT: I tell my patients that perfection by definitionis unattainable, but that does not preclude our committed and focused attemptto achieve it. What that means, is within the given anatomy of a particularperson we can create, in the right hands, the best-looking face possible.

Rather than strive for the perfect look, I tell my patientsto focus on being and looking the best they can within their God-given gifts.The cons of trying to be perfect can be mentally taxing. Some, although rare,become obsessed with their appearance and in so doing develop a veryunattractive appearance and personality. So just as we strive for balance andharmony in our appearance we need to strive for balance and harmony in our mindand in our behavior.
