The Craze for Ratajkowski's Naval

Ratajkowski is a model with unique bodily features. As a result, her 'oval like' naval alone has had a different fan base.

As reported by Daily Mail in 2018, there was a massive surge of men and women who reportedly spent around $16 billion for plastic surgery in 2016 alone to give their naval a 'Ratajkowski' look.

While people were crazy to give their naval some likeness to that of the supermodel, a few others demanded a Jessica Simpson type which bears a similarity in looks with Ratajkowski's belly button. 

Further in the article, Daily Mail quoted Dr. Thomas Sterry, a board-certified plastic surgeon, who called the belly button to be "an important part of your anatomy from a cosmetic perspective."

He further stressed that if someone at the beach had a "bad belly button, it's hard to look sexy."

How Did Ratajkowski Perceive Her Instagram Image? 

Back in 2019, Ratajkowski urged her followers to understand that whatever they see on Instagram is not necessarily how it is in real life.

She wanted them to understand the difference between taking a picture for social media and taking a picture while doing something social.  

Talking to Amanda Montell of Byrdie, she explained that her Instagram image is manufactured and did not necessarily reflect her real life. 

What I always say to people is [my Instagram] is a curated version of a character. It’s not my real life. Hopefully, young people understand that.

She labeled her Instagram posts as "making my own magazine." Ratajkowski justified her claims by putting together a real-life example.

In her illustration, the 'Blurred Lines' model said that people had not seen her "when I woke up this morning with a fever, sweaty, with my mascara underneath my eyes."

"No, I’m not posting that.", she concluded. 

Has Emily Ratajkowski Undergone Plastic Surgery On Her Lips?

"No Way," Ratajkowski shut the rumors down with a string of two-word answers when asked if she had undergone a lip job. Back in January, she played down the claims of her getting lip injections during her pregnancy.

At the time, it was widely perceived that the actress had undergone plastic surgery to make her lips look a bit puffier. On January 22, 2021, she dismissed the allegation with her Instagram story, citing her pregnancy as a strong reason for not getting the job done.

In the story, she explained, “You can’t even get injections when you’re pregnant." 

She had further written how any "woman’s blood volume increases 50%" during pregnancy which is why "ladies can get a little puffy in the face and lips.”

Per Insider, who consulted plastic surgeon Dr. Alan Matarasso and OB-GYN Dr. Sheryl Ross regarding the matter, the doctors "wouldn't recommend the use of Juvederm, a popular lip-filler brand" or any other similar medications during pregnancy. 

They based their suggestion on the lack of studies to suggest their effects on the fetus and breastfeeding.
