Plastic surgery is nothing new, but the trend has been on the rise again in the last few years. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery13 percent of facial plastic surgeons surveyed saw an increase in requests for celebrity look-a-like procedures in 2014.

 Nearly 16 million people went under the knife last year alone, up three percent from the year before.

 To ask for a Rob Lowe-like nose of his own, guest host David Lazarus (left) paid a visit to Dr. Lloyd Krieger, a plastic surgeon on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

He sat for a consultation in Dr. Krieger's exam room, exploring the big picture trend, but also seeing what can be done to improve his own looks.
