Header: Credit: Shutterstock Cosmetic surgery is a staple topic of celebrity gossip columns and social media pages, which is not surprising as we all look to celebs for inspiration. Celebrities can have the same insecurities or self-confidence issues that we all have but they are in the public eye 24/7 so suffer from more scrutiny than the rest of us. Below we’ve selected our favourite celeb quotes about surgery, perky breasts and onscreen transformations. We praise you for being open and honest and we encourage more to do so!

“I hate when models say, 'Oh, plastic surgery is just a wrong thing.’ What are you talking about? You won the genetic lottery… You look like this specimen that's making people everywhere feel insecure and you're going to ridicule someone for getting plastic surgery?"

“If I want to put my tits on my back, it's nobody's business but my own.” We think this quote says it all: surgery should be for you and no one else.

We asked Vicky in an exclusive interview why she wanted cosmetic surgery. “After losing weight my boobs were like lack lustre bags of piss, for my own confidence I had lost loads of weight and worked hard in the gym and was starting to feel really good about my body. But I had this constant reminder of a time in my life when I wasn’t very happy I was slightly overweight and a bit miserable. So the final piece of the puzzle was to get my boobs done and lift my confidence”.

Iggy Azalea

Iggy, recently underwent a breast enlargement and admitted, “I got bigger boobs.” She revealed she was hesitant to come out wondering how it would affect her younger fans but thought being honest was the best thing to do stating “it’s something I have wanted for years.” Just this week she spoke about her rumoured nose job “I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame,” she tells Seventeen magazine’s September 2015 issue. “I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I’ve spoken about the changes I’ve made, like with my breasts.”

Patricia Heaton

The mother of four shared with People magazine that she underwent a breast reduction and tummy tuck for “vanity” - like many mothers she wanted her old body back. "I had four C-sections and my stomach looked like the map of the world. My breasts were hanging down to here from breastfeeding those babies, and my nipples were like platters. I wanted to fit into the gowns that I finally got to wear."

Caitlyn Jenner

Formerly known as the Olympian Bruce Jenner, she was thrust into the spotlight for being the father of Kendall and Kyle Jenner and step father to the Kardashians. Caitlyn has been very open with her transgender journey and the cosmetic surgery procedures she has undergone to achieve her feminine features. Caitlyn has undergone procedures such as a breast enlargement to facial feminisation surgery. All of which she discusses throughout her new series on her E! I am Cait. “You did a great job!” Caitlyn Jenner expresses deep gratitude as she gifts plastic surgeon with personalized copy of Vanity Fair cover

"To me, Botox is no more unusual than toothpaste. It works; you do it once a year, who cares?" Well done Simon for being one of the few celebrities of that status to admit to having the treatment.

Kris Jenner

Kris has always been happy to openly discuss cosmetic procedures, even going as far as having some on camera while filming Keeping up with the Kardashian. The procedures Kris has admitted to are a breast augmentation and a face lift. "I did have a little freshening up," Kris revealed. "Well after Kim called me 'gobble, gobble' at Thanksgiving. Kim thought my chin was down to my waist."

Kourtney Kardashian

“I have had breast implants, but it's so funny 'cause it's not a secret; I could care less.” Blunt and open as always, Kourtney has admitted to having the procedure when she was away at college.
