Top 8 Most Coveted Celebrity Body Parts

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, how can I look like the fairest starlet of them all?"

Apparently that's the question many Americans ask themselves prior to waltzing into their local plastic surgeon's office.

The same names sprawled across tabloid headlines come up often in consultations, where patients ask doctors to re-sculpt their facades to resemble the god- and goddess-like ones featured on TV and movie screens, according to a newly released survey of about 900 plastic surgeons.

Surgeons warn, however, that while they can wield a syringe and scalpel, they can't work magic.

"It's very hard to look like someone else," New York City-based surgeon Dr. John Bonanno said. "And the trend in cosmetic surgery can be summed up in one word: natural. Trying to look like someone else when your nose and cheekbones and chin are not like them will make you look very artificial in the end."

Frankly, people dead set on attaining Cameron Diaz's gams when their own legs more closely resemble Oompa-Loompas' ought to skip the surgeon and head straight to the psychiatrist, according to another specialist.

"It is an appropriate thought to admire a celebrity's nose, or eyes, etc., as an ideal or desirable look," said Michael McGuire, MD, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgery. While some of the ASPS' members participated in the 2008 study, which was conducted by an outside organization, the ASPS as a whole does not condone the practice of getting plastic surgery to look like a celebrity.

"It is usually unrealistic to want that nose or eyes without having the basic shape or size," McGuire added. "And, it may suggest some psychological issue to want a feature to make you look like that celebrity."

What follows are eight of the most coveted celebrity body parts, according to the survey. Note: Angie, zip your lips; Brad, watch your back.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie: Women's Most Wanted Lips

Angelina Jolie's sensuous pout helped make her an international sex symbol, and it's no wonder women across the county want to mimic her mouth with collagen implants and the like. Scarlett Johansson's lips lie within kissing distance of Jolie's, with patients increasingly requesting the pout of the rising starlet.

Matt McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey: Men's Most Wanted Abs

Whether on set of a movie or bumming around in Malibu, Matthew McConaughey rarely wears a shirt. If he ever owned an iron, it probably got tossed in the ocean long ago. When it comes time to throw on a suit for a premiere, he probably needs a refresher course in buttons, 101. Fine, enough; point is, with abs like that, of course, McConaughey's the envy of every man. And it's hardly a surprise they come to plastic surgeons enamored with his six pack but not the sit-ups and cardio required to get them au naturale.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian: Women's Most Wanted Butt

Kim Kardashian made waves when she broke onto the Hollywood scene as Paris Hilton's party hanger-on, making photogs and fans wonder if all that junk in her trunk was God-given. She has insisted that her booty's as real as it gets, flaunting it in bikinis, spandex and, in the case of her Playboy spread, nothing at all. Another highly coveted, classic backside: the rear belonging to Jennifer Lopez, aka Jenny from the Block.
