Tom Cruise- Pillowface?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

I commented in this week’s Star Magazine about Tom Cruise’s new look.  His face looks quite puffy, and can be the result of swelling from plastic surgery.  Or maybe he’s on medication that has caused his face to balloon?  Check out the photos on Radar Online.com HERE, including some of my comments.

I suspect that within a couple weeks he’ll look like the old Tom that we know and like.

 

Extreme Plastic Surgery – My Strange Addiction

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

This is from today’s Bethenny show. The woman interviewed here was profiled on TLC’s My Strange Addiction and has breasts that are “one cup short of a gallon” on each side. And somehow she’s found a cosmetic or plastic surgeon who has agreed to make them even bigger! Who does that??

The biggest commercially available, non-custom breast implants are 800cc. This is compared to a gallon, which is almost 3800 cc. Reality star Heidi Montag had 700 cc implants placed. The average implant size I insert is between 350-375 cc.

I wish the show would have posted the rest of addiction specialist Dr. Mike Dow’s comments. I would have loved to hear what he had to say to her!

 

Has Olivia Newton John Gotten Physical With A Plastic Surgeon’s Needle?

Friday, September 20th, 2013

I’ve loved Olivia Newton John ever since I was eight years old.  I recorded Grease and Xanadu on VHS and watched them dozens and dozens of times.  I bought all her cassettes and listened to them until they were worn down.  I even saw her in concert once, at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids for a benefit for Devos Children’s Hospital.  She seems like such a lovely, kind, and sweet person.  So why does she look so different?

Olivia is such a natural beauty that it’s a shame she appears to be getting  treatments by a plastic surgeon.  Her face looks puffier than it should, possibly due to too many injections of filler.  I really hope she stops, because I think she would look so much better with less.

Man, she was the prettiest woman ever in the late 70′s and early 80′s!  Did you know that they had to sew her leather pants onto her in Grease‘s last scene?

Wendy Williams Vs. Lil Kim In A War Of Plastic Surgery Words

Monday, March 18th, 2013

There is no love lost between talk show host Wendy Williams and rapper Lil Kim.  From Rolling Out:

During a recent segment of Williams’ “Hot Topics,” the media maven discussed Kim’s new look, i.e., plastic surgery. Although Williams sided with Kim in saying that blogs chose unflattering photos of her, Williams still blasted Kim for continually altering her face.

“Kim, in my mind, I knew your goal was always to look like La Toya Jackson,” Williams said, adding, “You’ve out-La Toya’d La Toya in your new look. Don’t blame Photoshopping, blame your plastic surgeon, girl.”

Williams made sure that Kim saw the insult by tweeting the segment and even putting Kim’s Twitter handle in the post.

As expected, when Kim finally saw the diss, she quickly fired back with a scathing accusation that Williams once had a sexual fling with late rapper Notorious B.I.G.

“@WendyWilliams Stop hating on me because U sucked Big’s d— & he didn’t want nothing to do with yo a– after that,” wrote Kim, adding, “It’s time for the world to know the real. I’m not playing with yo a– no more. Let’s Get it!!!!”

Well, I think it’s painfully obvious that Lil Kim’s had some work done, and she does look pretty darn odd.  Her nose looks like it’s been whittled down to the width of a popsicle stick.  Still, it looks like Wendy started this fight, and I suspect that she’s gone under the scalpel, too.

FYI: I’ve done a lot of talk shows, but never Wendy Williams’ program.

Facial Plastic Surgeon’s Views On Grated’s “Ten Ugliest Celebrities”

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Dr. Michael Persky is a well-known and respected board-certified facial plastic surgeon from Encino, CA.  His blog recently put up an entertaining little post analyzing the possible plastic surgery of the people named Grated.com’s “Ten Ugliest Celebrities.”  Here is a list of Grated’s Top Ten:

10. Melanie Griffith

9. Janice Dickinson

8. Jackie Stallone

7. Mickey Rourke

6. Pete Burns (shudder)

5. Cher

4. David Gest

3. Donatella Versace

2. Jodie Marsh

1. Iggy Pop (shield your eyes!)

I don’t agree with putting Melanie Griffith, Cher, or Jodie Marsh on this list.  Donatella, I suppose I understand.  I think I’d also add Quentin Tarantino.  Amazing writer, visionary director, creative powerhouse.  But he’s no Bradley Cooper.  Oh, and Mel Gibson.  Just plain ugly (inside and out).

Golden Globes 2013 – Plastic Surgery Galore!

Monday, January 14th, 2013

So I’m watching the Golden Globe Awards tonight in HD in my living room, and I keep seeing examples of celebrity plastic surgery on my set.  So instead of an in-depth analysis, I thought I’d list the people who I believe have had work done, as I watch the show.  One note: I’m starting this about an hour in.

Jennifer Westfeldt – Actress and girlfriend of John Hamm – Her cheeks look puffy and chipmunk-like – Sculptra injections in her cheeks?

Hugh Jackman’s wife – Rhinoplasty, Botox in her forehead

Julie Bowen – Breast implants

Rosario Dawson – Breast implants

Kate Hudson – Breast implants

Jessica Lange – Browlift, Botox, Facelift

Megan Fox – Rhinoplasty, Botox

Nicole Kidman – Botox

Sylvester Stallone – Browlift, possible facelift?

Jay Leno – Chin implant

Mel Gibson – He just looks terrible.  Maybe the ugliness inside this anti-Semitic, misogynistic monster is finally showing on the outside.

Overall, I really enjoyed the show.  Love that Les Miserables won!

Has Former Adult Film Star Jenna Jameson Been Poked Too Many Times (By Needles?)

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

I don’t know why so many celebs are plumping up their lips like this.  I commented recently on Jenna Jameson for this blog (see the post with before and after photos HERE) and have also recently commented on her appearance for Radar Online (see that post HERE).

I theorize that in certain circles, jacked up lips like Jenna’s are considered attractive.  These may be true in parts of Beverly Hills, where the appearance of overdone plastic surgery could be a sign of wealth, and therefore is considered more attractive.  It’s like the paintings of Peter Paul Rubens.  My understanding is that in his time, women who were somewhat overweight were considered more beautiful, because it meant that they were wealthy, well-fed, and healthy.  This could explain why so many Real Housewives have such puffy, overdone lips.  They may think their lips look good, whereas the majority of middle America considers them strange and overdone.

Just a thought.

Joan Van Ark – Plastic Surgery?

Friday, October 5th, 2012

I’ve had some readers ask me what is going on with Joan Van Ark’s face. Hmm…maybe some plastic surgery?

She’s such a pretty woman so it’s a shame she may have altered her looks considerably with plastic surgery. In my opinion, she appears to have had a browlift and upper blepharoplasty, creating the ‘hollowed out’ appearance to her upper eyes. Her nose looks thinner and shorter, possibly from a rhinoplasty. Her lips also appear augmented, likely from Restylane. In addition, her neckline is almost impossibly sharp for a 64 year old, and can be the result of a facelift. Her cheeks are somewhat puffy, possibly due to facial fat grafting. Finally, her skin has a smooth, waxy sheen. This can be caused by a combination of Botox (forehead), Juvederm (frown lines) and chemical peels or laser treatments.

While I think that some of these (possible) procedures work for her (facelift, injectable fillers), others have not improved her appearance at all (rhinoplasty, lip augmentation). Maybe she should take some advice from her contemporary Joan Collins and not have any plastic surgery at all! (see link)

Jimmy Fallon vs. Bruce Jenner On The CBS Late Show

Monday, October 1st, 2012

Jimmy Fallon cracks me up. This is a video from the CBS Late Show, where Jimmy tells the story about how he encountered Bruce Jenner, whose plastic surgery is the subject of many of his jokes. Funny story, and something that I’m always afraid might happen to me since I comment on celebs so much. It’s a fun 5 minute diversion.

 

Jenna Jameson – Has Plastic Surgery Ruined Her Looks?

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Wow.  Is that really the famous adult film actress Jenna Jameson?  She looks terrible!

Jenna looked a lot better just six years ago.  Here is a photo of her from 2006:


So what happened?

After hooking up with MMA legend Tito Ortiz, she appears to have gone overboard with the plastic surgery.  Probably the worst change is the blowing up of her lips.  They look like two Kielbasa.  Her face appears to have changed shape as well, possibly from placement of cheek implants combined with overdone Botox injections.  She also appears to have undergone removal or down-sizing of her breast implants.  Although this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, her breasts look quite uneven.  This could be due to excessive scar tissue or a capsular contracture.

The last few years haven’t been kind to Jenna’s appearance.   I’ve never treated or met her, but if I did, I’d recommend that she stop any plastic surgery and let it wear off.

Bruce Jenner – Facelift Scars, Pixie Ear Deformity?

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Bruce Jenner has been pretty open and honest about his plastic surgery history, even undergoing a revision facelift on the Kardashians’ E! show a couple years ago.  Here is a good photo of Bruce, revealing the well-healed scars from his facelifts and a mild pixie ear deformity.

A pixie ear deformity describes an earlobe that is attached and looks pulled down and sometimes elongated.  It’s a frequent occurence after facelift surgery where the neckline is suspended on the skin of the ears, including the earlobe.  This tension can cause the earlobe to stretch and pull down, resembling a fairy’s ear.  This can usually be avoided by a small trick I learned while working in Beverly Hills.

Khloe Kardashian – Lip Enhancement?

Monday, August 6th, 2012

This is a photo of how Khloe Kardashian normally looks.  Photos have surfaced on the internet showing a possible lip enhancement.  In fact, she’s sporting an out-and-out trout pout now.  Most women enhance their lips with temporary fillers, like Juvederm.  These typically wear off after 6 months or so.  The lips also swell more than other parts of our body, so it’s possible that she’s just excessively swollen.  If that’s the case, then she probably looks pretty reasonable right now.

Kris Jenner: Trout Pout Cause?

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Have you seen the recent photos of Kardashian mom Kris Jenner’s trout pout?  If not, check out the latest photo from Hollywood Life HERE.  Her upper lip looks like it’s been punched by Brock Lesnar.  Jenner claims her massive lip was due to an allergic reaction to a food she ate while in the Dominican Republic.  Many plastic surgeons have come forward to disagree.

My opinion: A food allergy would likely have caused both her upper and lower lips to swell up.  In the photo you can see it’s just her upper lip that’s affected.  An allergic reaction to filler injections is a more likely cause.  Some people may react to the preservatives in anesthetics that are mixed with the fillers.  The treatment for a reaction like this is oral steroids.

The lips have a tendency to swell quickly and dramatically.  That’s why, when a person gets punched in the face, he or she gets a fat lip and not a fat chin or fat nose.  The good thing is that the lips also shrink back to normal very quickly.  I bet Kris will look pretty normal the next time we see her.

 

Octomom Nadya Suleman – Tummy Tuck Scars?

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Just when you thought she would never come back… Octomom Nadya Suleman is making news lately with a new sex tape….

YUCK!

Who wants to see that?

The one interesting part, I suppose, of an Octomom sex tape is that you might be able to make out any plastic surgery scars on it.  Recent photos revealed on this website appear to show scars from a tummy tuck.  Take a look at the zigzaggy line going up her hip.  This is a tell-tale sign of a tummy tuck.  Some people have reported seeing scars from a thigh lift on the sex tape, but you’ll have to check it out on your own.  I have no desire to research this one out!

Is Donatella Versace Laying Off Plastic Surgery?

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Is Donatella Versace laying off plastic surgery and tanning?  The usually bronzed, smooth-faced fashion icon has exhibited lighter skin and a few wrinkles as of late.  She may be an example of what happens when Botox wears off.

If she is truly staying out of the sun, I applaud her.  The two worst things you can do to your skin is get too much sun and smoke cigarettes.  It’s amazing how these two bad habits combine to age a person.

I won’t even mention her lips…

Chyna’s Face Is Plumped Beyond Recognition

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Former Pro Wrestler Chyna (Joanie Laurer) has recently resurfaced with a completely different look.  She now has a pillow face!

Why would a plastic surgeon plump her face up so much?  If she had fat grafting, it’s possible that her face is still quite swollen and should settle down over the next few weeks.  For her sake, I hope that’s the case!  She looks unrecognizable now.

For more on Chyna’s new look, check out Radar Online.com HERE.

 

Perez Hilton – Hi Def Liposuction or Spray Painted Abs?

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

The king of poking fun at others, blogger Perez Hilton, is now the subject of rumors himself.  After revealing his new six pack, bloggers and websites have speculated that his new defined abs may not be completely natural.  Could his six pack be a due to plastic surgery?  A handful of plastic surgeons are performing Hi Def Liposuction, where the fat of the abdomen is suctioned to resemble muscles.  When performed on a good candidate, the procedure can be pretty impressive.  When performed on the wrong person, it can make him look like a Ninja Turtle.

It’s possible that his six pack is due to a combination of a lot of weight loss, working out, and some judiciously applied spray paint.   Mariah Carey tried this a few years ago, with pretty poor results.

Plastic surgery, spray paint, or not,  I commend Perez for getting himself in better shape.

Lara Flynn Boyle – Her Face Looks Like It’s Melting

Monday, April 9th, 2012

Wow.  This one is hard to explain.  Lara Flynn Boyle recently debuted her new look, and it’s a doozy.  Some people are speculating that she’s had more plastic surgery.  If anything, I think she may have had less.  It looks like her face is deflating!  Could this be the result of stopping years of overdone facial injections?  I think so.  For more of my thoughts and to see the photos, click HERE to visit Radar Online.

 

Pillow Face: The New Hollywood Fashion

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

What is going on with all the Pillow Faces in Hollywood?  There’s been a rash of them lately, each one seemingly worse than the next.  A Pillow Face is the term used when a person has overplumped cheeks, causing them to look like a Cabbage Patch Doll or as if they’re storing nuts for the winter.  Here are some Hollywood stars who appear to have exhibited Pillow Faces of late:

1. Ashley Judd - This natural beauty recently resurfaced to promote her new show Missing.  What’s really missing, though, are the wrinkles in her forehead and her previous appearance.  She and her reps have denied plastic surgery, instead blaming her puffy cheeks on a combination of steroid treatments and a sinus infection.  To read more about Ashley Judd’s face, click HERE for the MSNBC.com article and HERE for the RadarOnline.com article, both with my quotes.

2. Ellen Pompeo - Has Gray changed her facial Anatomy by getting a Pillow Face?  Looks like it!  Click HERE to see recent photos.

3. Lindsay Lohan – Not only are her cheeks overly puffy, but so is the rest of her face.  Click HERE to see what’s the scoop with LiLo.

4. Madonna – The Material Girl just might be the originator of the Pillow Face.  Click HERE for a photo.

Why are there so many stars sporting a Pillow Face and why didn’t we see it before?

Up until recently, most plastic surgeons considered facial aging to be a two-dimensional process.  They believed that aging caused the face to sag, hence the treatments all involved lifting.  This created the wind-tunnel looks of many of the older facelift and plastic surgery patients.  One of my mentors, Dr. Richard Ellenbogen, was among the first to describe facial aging as a 3-dimensional process, one that involved sagging PLUS deflation.  We described this in our 2004 article, The Volumetric Facelift.  Now all sorts of plastic (and non-plastic) surgeons have realized that proper facial rejuvenation surgery requires a combination of tightening loose skin PLUS adding volume to treat deflation.

Unfortunately, some of these doctors are going way, way overboard.  Instead of a conservative filling-in of the cheeks, they’re plumping faces as if blowing up a balloon.  Hence, the dreaded Pillow Face.

As for most things in life, moderation is the key.  A little volume is a great thing.  A lot of volume makes a person look not like a Man, but like a Muppet.
