It’s no secret that a lot of Hollywood beauty isn’t exactly all-natural. Many celebrities have talked about the cosmetic procedures they’ve had done, including Kaley Cuoco, Courteney Cox, and Dolly Parton, who said “if something is bagging, sagging, or dragging, I’ll tuck it, suck it, or pluck it,” but not every celebrity is that open about their procedures…and that’s a problem.

There’s nothing wrong with getting plastic surgery, but according to USA Todaythere’s a difference between not disclosing it and flat-out lying about it. Daniel Barrett, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, says that many celebrities look good naturally, but the ones that have had work done have a responsibility.

“I think they’re being unethical because they’re in the spotlight,” Barrett says. “They’re benefitting from being a celebrity and have a moral obligation to be transparent about anything they’ve had done that helps them achieve a certain look.”

So why spill it? Not telling their fans can lead the young and impressionable to believe they can get the same look as their favorite stars without having work done, and that can cause problems. Naomi Torres-Mackie, head of research at the Mental Health Coalition, calls unrealistic beauty standards “a rigged race that’s unwinnable.”
