Demi Moore - $3 Million of Plastic Surgery?

In a recent interview, actress Demi Moore addressed the rumors that she's had $3 million worth of plastic surgery:

Do you get irritated by all the rumours suggesting you paid $3 million for surgical procedures on your face and body?
“Yes, it’s irritating - and it’s also not true. But to fight it feels futile because it just perpetuates the myth. The truth is I have no problem with enhancing one’s looks or fixing something that’s changed. It’s always an option, but I can’t see me ever getting something like that done.”

Now, in my opinion she looks fantastic. While I do think she is a natural beauty, I also believe she's likely had some work done. Three million dollars worth though? That's ludicrous.

A successful plastic surgery practice grosses about a million dollars a year. That means that Demi would have to have undergone three years worth of plastic surgery by a single plastic surgeon to cover the three million dollars worth she's rumored to have had. If each procedure roughly costs ten grand, then that would mean she would have had 300 surgeries! Not even Jocelyn Wildenstein can claim that!


Thanks for reading.

She's been very odd looking in my eye in the past year.
While I think she was beautiful for a while, I truly am worried about what she will look like 10 years from now.
But honestly, you can say that about most older celebrities.

Dr. Youn-

You say, "if each procedure roughly costs ten grand". My beautiful showgirl friend had a consultation with Lifestyle Lift in Beverly Hills and they quoted her $22,000 for a face lift.

Perhaps Michigan should be my destination when I'm ready to reinvent myself.

I don't even think Jenny Lee had $3 million in procedures! Demi is beautiful and I think the work she had done was well done. Good for her!

Dr. Youn, I love reading your blog. I am a medical student, I just finished my first semester of MS-I.

I love your acerbic posts. I wish you Happy Holidays!

Demi's got good natural bone structure which is probably the envy of many women.

Why she needs to have anything done is beyond me - maybe just a little help with age lines but no need for much more

Demi Moore had a lot of plastic surgery years ago--now gravity is taking it's course--she still looks good

If she did have plastic surgery she damn sure don't look like she did. I see nothing in her face that says even alittle bit of work has been done, other then probably some minor botox stuff. She look very, very natural and an extreme amount of work, would definitely "tell on her". She might have used a lot of that money on her body as oppose to her face. In any event, I think she looks great!

I thought the original figure was closer to 300,000 worth of work done.
