It’s no secret that plastic surgery costs a lot of money. Every day, people shell out thousands of dollars to go under the knife, or receive injections, all in order to try and enhance their looks. While some people get plastic surgery because it can help ease their way of life, most people get plastic surgery to achieve their version of perfection and boost their confidence. Everyone, regardless of their profession, deals with low self-esteem and confidence issues during at least one point in their life. But, between the pressure to be perfect and constant scrutiny from the media, celebrities tend to turn to plastic surgery more than others. Although many celebrities get nose jobs, lip injections, liposuction, and fillers, the most popular type of plastic surgery, among celebrities, is breast implants.
Since plastic surgery isn’t exclusive to celebrities, getting a breast augmentation is a very popular form of plastic surgery even amongst everyday people. Most people pay around $4,600 for saline implants and around $5,000 for silicone implants. But, between celebrities’ large salaries, resources to the best doctors, and desire to have the absolute perfect breasts, celebrities are willing to shell out more than a couple of grand for a pair of breast implants.
In fact, as you're about to find out, some celebrities are willing to go under the knife multiple times to achieve their desired pair of breasts, which leads to them shelling out around eight times more the amount of average saline implants. Let's hope we also don't shatter your perception when you learn that people like Salma Hayek's, may be spectacular, but they aren't real!
10 Victoria Beckham: $8,000
Number ten on our list of celebs with the most expensive breast implants is none other than Victoria Beckham. When Beckham rose to fame as Posh Spice, in the popular girl group the Spice Girls, she became self-conscious of her size 34A boobs. So, in 2006, Beckham shelled out $8,000 and went from a small 34A to a bustling 34DD. Definitely a jump that is hard to ignore! Though it was not a long-lasting relationship with the double D's and in 2013, Beckham decided to begin reducing her breast implants. At one point she almost returned to her natural cup size, making you wonder if she questioned the whole process to begin with. Since then, Beckham has maintained a medium sized cup size with 34B boobs.
9 Holly Madison: $8,800
You most likely recognize Holly Madison as a cast member of The Girls Next Door, a reality show that depicted the lives of Playboy playmates. While Madison always thought her 34A boobs were disproportionate to her body, she wasn’t self-conscious about them until she started dating Hugh Hefner in 2001. So, in 2001, Madison went to Extreme Makeover plastic surgeon, Dr. Garth Fisher, and had her small boobs transform into a bustling size 34D for $8,800. Since then, Madison has voiced that although she has a higher level of confidence since her boob job, and has no plans of taking her implants out anytime soon, she doesn’t want her daughter to get plastic surgery to fix her insecurities.
8 Tara Reid: $9,500
Celebrities never experience botched plastic surgery, right? Wrong. While most celebrities get the finest treatment from the most renowned doctors, some celebrities don’t do their research to find a suitable doctor. In 2004, actress Tara Reid finally decided to even out her size 34B boobs. Her boobs were noticeably uneven, and Reid decided to fix the problem. So, Reid went to a plastic surgeon and asked for big B cups. After surgery, Reid discovered that her breasts were big C cups, and there were bumps around her nipples. When her doctor reassured her this was normal, Reid went home relieved. But, six months later, the condition of her breasts started getting worse. Her breast augmentation became so unbearable she underwent reconstruction surgery, which made her boob job total $9,500. Since then, has no plans of doing any other plastic surgery.
7 Salma Hayek: $10,000
When Salma Hayek gained popularity in Hollywood, she became known as a small-boobed icon. Although Hayek used to state that she was confident with her smaller boobs, as her popularity gained, she slowly desired to have larger boobs. So, Hayek decided to undergo a breast augmentation for $10,000. Hayek went from a smaller size C to a perky double D that enhanced her natural curves. Regardless if Hayek has small or big boobs, she has always been a babe. But, now she’s even hotter with her larger bust. To prove Hayek’s boob job was worth it, In Touch magazine even named her number three of women with the best breasts in Hollywood.
6 Carmen Electra: $10,000
If you are asked to think about a celebrity with the best breasts, you most likely think about Carmen Electra. While Electra is well aware that she has some of the best breasts in Hollywood, she didn’t always have a killer bust. With the desire to enhance her curvy frame, Electra shelled out $10,000 and went from a 32B to a 32DD. Although $10,000 is a lot of money for a boob job, it sure worked for Electra’s favor. She rose to fame from her performance in Baywatch, as well as being a Playboy model who landed a spot on the cover four times.
5 Nicole Kidman: $15,000
4 Kate Hudson: $15,000
When Kate Hudson became famous, she made people stop fantasizing over Hollywood’s biggest breasts and started fantasizing over the smaller sized breasts in Hollywood. Hudson was known for showing off her A cup boobs in tiny bikinis and plunging tops and dresses. But, as a 31st birthday present, Hudson gave herself the gift of a boob job. Instead of significantly increasing her cup size, Hudson settled for a more subtle look, and went from a size 32A to 32B, all with the help of renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Garth Fisher for $15,000.
3 Denise Richards: $25,000
While most celebrities are often reluctant to open up about the plastic surgeries they had, Denise Richards is not one of them. From the minute she rose to fame, Richards has not been afraid to talk about her breast augmentation experience. When she was at the mere age of 19, Richards decided her small boobs weren’t cut out for Hollywood. So, she underwent plastic surgery and significantly increased her breasts. But, years later, Richards reflected on the decision she made when she was 19 and decided to reduce her implants. She regretted her augmentation so much that it took three breast reduction surgeries for her to be pleased with her boobs. Now, $25,000 later, Richards is comfortable and confident with her size 34C breasts.
2 Heidi Montag: $30,000
Like Richards, this celebrity wasn’t afraid to publicly share her plastic surgery journey. In 2009, The Hills star Heidi Montag decided that she was no longer happy with her small A cup boobs. So, with the world as her audience, Montag went from her tiny A-cup boobs to a bustling and firm triple D. Although Montag loved her triple D boobs, she began regretting the large transformation a couple of years later. She underwent two reduction surgeries,settling with D sized boobs. Overall her breast implant surgery totalled $30,000.
1 Pam Anderson: $35,000
Coming in at number one is none other than Pamela Anderson. When you think about the most popular and perfect pair of implants in Hollywood, other than Carmen Electra, you most likely think about Anderson. In fact, Anderson is so infamous for her breast implants that she is often considered as the person who kick-started the trend of getting breast implants in America. Although Anderson had already posed for Playboy twice, she decided that she needed a breast augmentation in 1990. As her boobs continued to grow, as did her fame. But, nine years later, she decided to have the implants removed. Then, in 2004, Anderson decided she needed bigger breasts, yet again, and did so. Currently, after $35,000 worth of breast implants, Anderson is content with her double D boobs. At least for now!
