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 Surgery, 13 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.
