The Premiere Site For Celebrity Plastic Surgery By A Real Plastic Surgeon
I'm a Michigan-based Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been featured on Dr. 90210. The info here is my opinion alone and should not be taken as fact or as medical advice. I've not treated any of the celebrities presented here.

Mariah Carey is eating only purple foods in order to "keep a facelift away." According to the Sun online, Mariah is reportedly eating only purple-colored foods three days a week because of their anti-aging benefits. Apparently her nutritionist (wouldn't we all like to have our own nutritionist and chef?) believes that purple foods are nature's best weapons in the battle against aging, due to the large amounts of vitamins and antioxidents.
I am not one of those "anti-aging" gurus, who focus their attention on hormone manipulation, vitamins, and organic dietary supplements. There is a Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, but it is not one of the boards which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, which means it is still a bit on the fringe. I encourage my patients to eat a balanced diet and avoid bad habits such as smoking, tanning, and overeating. I believe that it is important to live a life of moderation, which means that it is ok to enjoy eating out and some bad food every once in a while. Not everyone is meant to be 5'6" and weigh 120 lbs.
On the lighter side of things, I guess that the 2 liter jug of Purple Passion that's been in my fridge since college isn't so bad afterall!
