Or at least that is what Simon Cowell says. He would force surgery on any woman over forty if he had it his way.

Proud of his own groomed looks Simon believes that women of a certain age should take pride in their appearances as much as he does.

“I'd make it compulsory for every woman over 40 [to have plastic surgery],” he once said.
Regardless of his arrogant demeanor, judgmental tone and opinionated  outlook on everything and everyone, he was able to build a young following that worships the ground he walks on.  

With Fabulously40 members pictures all around me I know we don't need plastic surgery and would love to tell Simon to take his opinion and rearrange his own face.

As for his girlfriend Terri Seymour 36, of six years, I hope she starts interviewing plastic surgeons soon, she is only 4 years away from turning the big four "0".

    • I think Simon Cowell needs a lobotomy, myself. Can I force that on him? ;)

    • Don’t you need a brain to have a labotomy?

      While I was in laser school a 67-year old woman came in for an IPL treatment. She had so many plastic surgery procedures that it was sad. Fighting aging. I decided right then and there I was never going to be that way!

    • When I was watching the Academy Awards this year, I thought the actress who looked the loveliest was Helen Mirren. So elegant and stunning, and real. There are wrinkles, there are a few more pounds, to be sure. But mostly, there’s a confidence and radiance about her. She is aging utterly gracefully without plastic surgery, and I salute her for that.

    • You guys are AWESOME, your comments made me laugh.

      I actually saw Simon in real life while he was picking up his take out order at one of the trendy restaurants in Beverly Hills, and I have to tell you his face has no movement, and was painful to look at.

      I just wish I saw him today, he would of gotten an ear full from me.

    • Sillies!  I LOVE Simon Cowell.  The man makes a living out of causing reactions.  I am an American Idol addict and I find his feedback to be the most real and the most helpful.

      As for him saying women over 40 needs plastic surgery, WHATEUUUUUUUVER!

      I’m not going to get my panties all in a wad over one man’s
      opinion.

      You all just gave him more attention, exactly why he says this stuff.

      He makes me laugh...he’s just a silly vibration in the air.

    • It’s sad that comments are made about what people choose to look like.  Yes, some of our looks are inherited, but what we do from there is our own choice.  I have never seen any of the plastic surgery “nightmares” people so frequently talk about.  I’ve seen some beautiful work though.  I don’t like the idea of botox, but that’s my personal thought about it.  I know others who swear by it.  At 51, I’d like to think I’m tolerant either way.  If I consider something of a cosmetic nature it will have to be what I consider safe and likely to look good.  I know lots of women who swore they’d never have plastic surgery at 35, and then, 50 came along, and they changed their mind.  They look great and what’s more important they‘re happy about their looks.  That’s the main thing.  

      Oh, and Helen Mirren may have a few wrinkles but she doesn’t have any extra poundage.  At least not in the photos of her in that now famous red bikini that was posted all over the internet a few weeks ago.  Apparently a reporter went into the streets of London showing that picture with a sticker over the face so people couldn’t see who it was.  When asked how old they thought the lady was, the youngest age started at 25!  Helen’s obviously taken keeping fit seriously!  

      As for Simon Cowell, I’ve never been a fan of his.  And I wouldn’t let his opinion of what to do influence me one way or the other!

    • Simon does make comments for the reaction it’s true! But he can be very unforgiving in his feedback and that bothers me a lot. I watch American Idol and have for the past couple of years and I have noticed he can be sorta kind if he tries real hard. There have been a couple of times he seemed to really try....gotta wonder, is it from within or a PR person using a cattle prod?

    • Its interesting how much attention his comments receive.  As a Board Certified Surgeon specializing in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon.. I have been asked to comment on his comments! To offer my 2 cents.  I am obviously a supporter of plastic surgery.  But clearly it is not for everyone.  I also don’t believe there is anything intrinsically ugly about aging or an aged appearance.  However, I do understand why many people want to preserve there youthful appearance.  Part of it is cultural which influences our perception of beauty etc.   I cant quote the study... but an interesting observation was made in a survey study on women in there 40-50s.  They noted that in retrospect, the majority felt the best about there appearance between the ages of 28 -32. I thought that was interesting.  

       Plastic surgery serves a purpose.  Everyday, I have the pleasure of fixing problems and as a result making people happier about themselves. However,  in order for it to serve a purpose... it takes a person with a perceived problem, the right motivation, and the right expectations.  Moreover, it is important to recognize that one persons problem may not register as a problem to another person.. but in the end of the day it is what the individual perceives and whether or not that perception is affecting them emotionally.  

        For example one person can walk around with a large nose (for example) and not think twice about it... but another person with the same large nose feels insecure and avoids certain social interactions.  Interestingly, in the eyes of others both people have the same large nose and this perception my have a negative impact on an interpersonal and social level, yet one person recognizes it as a problem and seeks surgery to fix it.  The other does not.  What I am trying to get at is that it is  ultimately, a very personal decision and when it is handled appropriately and safely it can have profound positive results in an individual’s quality of life.  I get to see this side of it regularly.  On the other hand, if handle haphazardly or taken lightly, it can have a profoundly negative impact.   Unfortunately, I also get to see this side of it,  when patients come in for revisions.  

      On my first Face Place blog.. I discuss my observations about what motivates individuals seeking plastic surgery.  This is the first of many Blog topics dedicated to offering education and insight into the field of Cosmetic Facial Plastic Surgery.   My goal is to empower those who may be considering it... so that they can make good decisions that are predicated on safety and efficacy.

    • I do respect and admire anyone who has the courage to do something like plastic surgery. At this point it’s not a option for me mostly due to cost but I have to admit I have thought about myself. Sometimes its like what was said before I look in the mirror and think is that really me? All those wrinkles? And then I think....hey wait a minute.... I am not wise enough for all these marks of time....I want off this ride? lol But really I have been lucky and my crows feet do not yell to loudly yet:)

    • Will Simon pay for all women over 40 to have the plastic surgery  if he is going to require it? What about poor women over 40 who could not have plasic surgery even if they wanted it?
