Plastic Surgery to Look Like Jennifer Lawrence? Meet Women Who Went Under the Knife to Look Like Celebrities


"Jennifer Lawrence isn't a celebrity that I have particularly strong feelings about one way or another," he said. "It's totally her choice."

Kitty is part of a younger generation of women who are happy to pay the costs and take on the risks of plastic surgery to channel their inner-favorite celebrity.

Another woman named Rosie, a 43-year-old marketing executive from Las Vegas, wanted to look more like Michelle Rodriguez, the tough but sexy actress famous for her "Fast and Furious" persona.

"I've always been told that I look like Michelle Rodriguez and I love Michelle Rodriguez, she's bad, she's beautiful," Rosie said.

"I'm not a freak," she continued. "I'm obsessed with trying to look like Michelle Rodriguez. I'm just in love with … the feminity that she has. She is this bad a-- person that loves fast cars, she has muscles, she's like, you know, a really cool chick and the fact that I'm told I look like her, I would, why not?"

But aside from working out regularly and trying to get her body into shape to emulate the actress, like Kitty, Rosie also had another motivation for the surgery.

"I have a very harsh face," she said. "That's my reality. If I don't smile it looks like I'm upset so I would like the enhancements to correct that."

After months of research, she elected to have a fat-grafting procedure. She selected surgeon Dr. Samuel Lam of Lam Facial Plastics, who wrote the book on facial fat-grafting. In February, Rosie flew with her boyfriend Carmen to Dallas for a $8,000 fat-grafting surgery with Lam.

While in the Dr.'s waiting room, Carmen, who all along had been supportive of the procedure, expressed some concerns.

"I feel like she doesn't need it," he said. "I like what I see. I like what I enjoy. I like what I kiss, and what I get to experience. So I feel that she doesn't need any more enhancements, but if this is what you choose, adelante." Rosie chose to move forward with the procedure, "I am doing this for me, I'm not doing it for him."

The next day, during her procedure, Rosie's fat was harvested from her body -- also known as liposuction -- to be used as a filler in her eyelids, nose, undereyes, cheeks and chin to add volume and sculpt her face. The whole procedure took two hours.

Six weeks after her surgery, Rosie was very pleased with the results, though ironically, she thinks she looks less like Michelle Rodriguez. She said she no longer had the "harsh face" that had motivated her to get surgery and looked younger and refreshed.

"I don't think I look like Michelle Rodriguez at all, I'm not disappointed by it. I kind of like this is Rosie, this is me, I don't have to look like her. So, not disappointed," she said.

Kitty's was ecstatic with the results.

"Of course I look like Jennifer Lawrence," she said. "I thought I had a resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence before my surgery and now I think after, my features are more refined to where they resemble her more."
