Kelli Williams - Williams: 'Young Women Should Be More Careful With Plastic Surgery'

LIE TO ME star KELLI WILLIAMS has urged women to think long and hard about plastic surgery - because she knows what really goes into nips and tucks, having watched her surgeon father conduct hundreds.
The actress is the daughter of retired Beverly Hills plastic surgeon John Williams and remembers watching him work on his patients while they were sedated.
The process didn't put her off having breast implants fitted in her early 20s, but she does think too many women rush into plastic surgery without thinking of the long-term repercussions.
She tells WENN, "Growing up around that (cosmetic surgery) gave me a very nice life as a kid but certainly the idea of beauty in this town is not exactly what I enjoy. The need for a lot of women to go under the knife is hard for me to handle.
"I think you have to be very careful. It wasn't normal to be going to Beverly Hills High School and have kids come to school with various procedures done their sophomore year; I think that's a very dangerous thing to allow your children to do.
"People don't realise the long term effects of it and the upkeep and what it does to your body, particularly with implants, which I had removed when I was 22.
"I've watched every procedure my father has done in his office. There's a couple of procedures that made me squeamish, like implants and facelifts."
But Williams admits she understands why TV stars go under the knife as they get older: "HDTV (high-definition) is just awful, particularly to your face. It's very unfair, so you really have to rely that your DP (director of photography) is great and they know how to light you, because, in HD, you see lines that don't even exist in the shadows of real life!
"I'd much prefer to be lit in my horribly lit closet, because I look better there than I do in HD. It's gonna make these women run to get fillers and it's just so awful for me because you look at your face when you start to get some lines and criticize that when it's beautiful.
"The catch 22 is you want to be hire-able and desirable and then this industry tells you what you should look like. If you're not careful you could start looking like a freaky person."
