5 Signs your Face looks Fake
Look at the transformation of Joan Rivers or Donatella Versace and you will realise that there’s some truth to plastic surgery being addictive. While we can all benefit from some beauty enhancements to look refreshed and a better version of ourselves, avoid these 5 telltale signs of plastic surgery so instead of looking fake, you stay on top of the ‘au naturel’ trend in vogue now.

1. A face that Looks too Tight
You won’t need to spot scars behind or in front of the ears that’s indicative of a facelift when it is obvious from facial skin that is pulled too taut. According to Dr. Low Chai Ling, Founder of SW1 Clinic, the face can appear artificial when only the skin is tightened without engaging the fat muscles and tissues. A mouth that seems too wide or elongated earlobes (think pixie ears) are also dead giveaways that a trip has been made to the skin doctor.

2. An Expressionless Face
This is another sure sign your face looks fake; a frozen look where the face looks too smooth to be real, has clearly been subjected to an overdose of Botox. When done poorly, injections of this muscle relaxant to the forehead can also give the impression of a person who’s about to flare-up at any moment with ominous-looking brows.

3. Unnatural Looking Eyes
(Jocelyn Wildenstein’s obsession with looking like a cat drove her to get narrow and elevated eyes.)
Eyes don’t lie. A hallowed pair may recount a fat (eyebag) removal that has “exceeded” expectations. Similarly, eyelid creases as deep as the Mariana Trench, creating peepers as big as a deer’s tell of an eyelid surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty) that failed to take into account the proportion of the face.
4. A Sharper-than-Usual Nose
(Dead giveaway. Paris Hilton has a nose with a manufactured tip.)
Again, before you start looking underneath someone’s nose for a scar typical of a Rhinoplasty, ask yourself if the person in question has an extremely small nose with a high bridge that seems out of place with relation to the rest of the face. There’s a high chance he/she has had a nose job especially if he/she is an Asian.
5. Trout Pout
(Lauren Goodger makes the common mistake of having excessive lip fillers.)
Thick lips that raise concern of an allergic reaction (or known as a trout pout) is a lip trap many consciously or unconsciously fall into. Going overboard with lip fillers may result in puckers deviating from the norm of having the lower lip about 50% larger than the upper one, says Dr. Hui. This creates an unnatural result that instantly screams you have had lip injections. And mind you, not in a way that increases sensuality, appeal and youth.
