demi mooreDemi Moore may be one of the hottest 48-year-olds on the planet, but those looks come with one hefty price tag. Though she repeatedly denies having undergone plastic surgery (she does own up to her obvious boob job), new reports have emerged detailing the extensive surgical and non-surgical treatments Moore has received over the years. Prepare to have your mind blown. After turning 40, the mother of three allegedly spent around $311,000 on a head-to-toe overhaul, Heidi Montag style. She spent $25,000 on liposuction, $15,000 on breast implants, and $31,000 on facial work. She also became obsessed with the skin above her knees sagging, so she had them fixed. More recently are Moore’s Thermage skin-tightening treatments, which run around $3,000 a pop. This technique uses radio frequency to heat the deeper layers of the skin while cooling the skin’s surface. This tightens collagen and stimulates growth, which makes your epidermis appear tighter and smoother. Apparently she likes the results, because she’s been known to go in for treatments weekly. Surely when you’re a big celebrity maintaining your looks is a big part of the job, but the sheer amount of work Demi Moore has had done is unbelievable. Yes, her transformation may not have been as dramatic as Heidi Montag’s and the overall results may look better, but she’s still totally fake and that makes us sad. We love being able to look up to sexy, well-maintained women like Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep, so it’s disheartening when we learn that gorgeous women like Moore have not aged naturally or far from it.

What upsets me about Demi as well as some other celebrities is their denial regarding the work they’ve had done. I know they want to protect their image and perhaps it comes down to pride, but they are creating a problem that is much bigger than them. By saying their not-so-natural results are natural, they are setting a ridiculous standard that is unachievable. It messes with the expectations that others have of us, and it messes with our perception and expectation of ourselves. No one wins – except maybe Demi. I wish that more people could look outside of themselves and see the bigger picture.
