Top Doc Warns Courteney Cox: “Stop The Drastic Plastic!”

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

The blog title is the funny headline from a recent National Enquirer article where I was asked what I thought about Courteney Cox’s lips.  Although I don’t recall ever yelling for her to “Stop The Drastic Plastic!” I do think her lips look quite overdone.  In fact, they are bordering on trout pout levels.  She’s such a natural beauty and would look even better with smaller, natural lips.

The photo here is from 2012, but there is a more recent photo on the National Enquirer article HERE.

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.

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.

Miley Cyrus – Has She Plumped Up Her Lips?

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Miley Cyrus has recently posted a picture on her Twitter account, prompting many to speculate that she’s undergone lip enhancement.  What do I think?

Before-and-after photos are consistent with lip injections using a filler like Juvederm or Restylane.  Her current appearance on this photo definitely resembles patients who’ve recently had their lips enhanced and are still a bit swollen.  I suspect that we’ll see it settle down with time, and look just fine.

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.


Lady Gaga – Lip Plumping Plastic Surgery?

Friday, July 6th, 2012

The internet has been all abuzz about Lady Gaga’s lips.  She tweeted a photo recently, causing many to speculate that the pop singer has had injections to plump up her lips!  This, after declaring that she is against plastic surgery but a proponent of body modification procedures (see my previous post on this HERE).  So does this photo show that she’s had her lips injected?

It’s definitely possible.  Her lips look much plumper now than they did when she was younger.  Check out a video of a young, brunette Lady Gaga HERE.  If she’s had them enhanced, I suspect she’s used an injectable filler like Juvederm.

I’m a huge Lady Gaga fan.  She’s an immense talent with an incredible voice.  Even more than her music, I admire that she uses her platform to support anti-bullying programs and provide an inspiration for gay youth who are teased, picked on, and looked down upon.  I like that she uses her power for good.


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…

Melissa Gilbert – Plastic Surgery?

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Is this really Melissa Gilbert?  She looks nothing like the young actress from Little House on the Prairie.  I suspect that she’s had a little work done.  Click HERE to visit RadarOnline.com to read my thoughts.

Freak Friday indeed.  Lindsay Lohan’s lips continue to look trout-like.  Check out the opinions of three top plastic surgeons at Hollywood Life HERE.  Yes, I’m one of them!


Does Jennifer Lopez Have A Trout Pout?

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

It appears that J. Lo may have had her lips plumped in advance of the live American Idol shows.  Check out a photo from Radar Online.  I suspect that her lips have been injected with a filler like Restylane or Juvederm.  Let’s see how she looks once the live American Idol shows start up.  Probably pretty darn good.

Melanie Griffith Is Looking Better With Her Plastic Surgery!

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011


Melanie Griffith has recently resurfaced… looking much better!  Radar Online.com has recently published my analysis of the plasticized star:

“Melanie looks great!” marveled celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.  “The Working Girl appears to have been working on looking more natural for her role in
Desperate Housewives,” he quipped.  “Her face, although likely smoothed with injectable fillers like Restylane
and laser treatments, looks less puffy than before,” explained the surgeon.  “I think overall Melanie looks better than she has in years!” said Dr. Youn, adding that the next move for her should be to take out the implants from her lips.

For the rest of the RadarOnline article on Melanie Griffith, click HERE.

“I suspect she’s had some Botox to her forehead and had an upper eyelid lift,
both of which have contributed to a refreshed, youthful appearance.



What Happened To Marie Osmond’s Face?

Friday, December 9th, 2011

Radar Online recently printed my comments on Marie Osmond’s recent startling transformation.  My thoughts:

“Her eyebrows are excessively arched, likely from Botox injections. Her lips
resemble the classic ‘trout pout’ where the upper lip is excessively plumped in
comparison to the lower lip,” he explained, adding that it may be from Juviderm

Has Sandra Bullock Plumped Up Her Lips?

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

The Daily Mail and CeleBitchy are reporting that Sandra Bullock may have undergone some minor plastic surgery recently.  The Daily Mail claims she may have had her lips plumped with an injectable filler, while Celebitchy speculates about a possible previous browlift and Botox injections.

I’m not seeing much, but maybe I’m just naive.  My brother once met her while working as an extra on While You Were Sleeping.  He said she was a real doll, extremely friendly and gracious.  That’s nice to hear.


FDA Approves Restylane For Lip Enhancement

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The FDA has approved Restylane (Medicis, hyaluronic acid) to cosmetically enhance the lips.  The studies performed under FDA guidance found Restylane injections to the lips to be well-tolerated and with minimal risks and side effects for up to six months.  The new indication is for submucosal injection in people over the age of 21.

We’ve been using Restylane for lip enhancement off-label for several years.  Although I really like the product, I’m partial to Juvederm in the lips.  Juvederm is a bit softer and less gritty.  Restylane is great for the nasolabial (frown) lines, though.

For more information on the FDA approval of Restylane for the lips, click HERE.

JWoww in Plastic Surgery War of Words With Kim Kardashian?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Apparently Jersey Shore’s JWoww doesn’t believe Kim Kardashian’s claim that the recent photos of her plumped up lips are due to the flu.  She recently tweeted,  “Funny how stars don’t man up to there plastic surgery… I did… Blaming it on colds etc.. Is just hysterical.. ”

This appears to be in response to a recent statement by Kim Kardashian:

“Trust me, I’ve tried Botox on the show,” she told Extra. “I’m the first one to talk about anything that I do. It really pisses me off that all of these plastic surgery rumors are always linked to me… I have the flu. I’m puffy and swollen and I have no makeup on. Why would I just do my bottom lip?” she questioned.

Whom do you believe?  Although I believe Kim’s had her lips done as evidenced by the photo in this blog’s prior post here, I must side with Kim against JWoww.  But only because I hate it when people mispell “their!”

Kim Kardashian’s Lips Are Plumped Up

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

What’s happened to Kim Kardashian’s lips?  She either had them plumped up by a plastic surgeon with some Juvederm or she was stung by a hive of bees.  Give it a couple days and they should settle down.  I’m surprised she went out in public looking like this.    She looks like Mick Jagger with long hair.

Lisa Rinna Debuts Her New, Smaller Lips

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Lisa Rinna has debuted her new, smaller lips.  As you may know, Lisa recently revealed that she underwent a lip reduction surgery in August.  Her lips now look pretty good!

Typically the lower lip should be 50% larger than the upper lip.  The reason why her lips looked so abnormal before was because her lower lip was actually smaller than her upper lip.  This photo shows that her lips are now the ‘normal’ proportions.  Her plastic surgeon did a nice job.

Kudos to Lisa Rinna for being so up front and honest.  It’s too bad not all celebs are so honest about their plastic surgery!

Lisa Rinna Gets The Silicone Taken Out of Her Lips

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Actress Lisa Rinna has had her lips reduced.  In an interview with People Magazine, the trout-pouted star stated that she was happy with the results of her lip reduction:

“My lip has no lumps! It’s smooth,” she said. “It doesn’t matter what other people think. I did it for myself.”

In previous interviews she admitted to undergoing silicone injections to her lips several years ago, leaving her with a decidedly unnatural-looking appearance.  Basically her upper lip was too big for her lower lip.

My comments on this are printed in the latest New York Daily News (click here for the article).  If she truly had silicone injected into her lips, then the procedure to remove it could be lengthy, bloody, and painstaking.  Solid silicone implants would be a lot easier to remove, since they call be pulled out intact.  Liquid silicone must be cut out, possibly piece by piece or droplet by droplet.  That’s no fun for either the plastic surgeon or the patient!  Bravo to Lisa for being up front and honest about her plastic surgery experience.

Bad News for Lindsay Lohan: Jail, Lawsuit Problems, Trout Pout

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Poor Lindsay Lohan. First she gets sentenced to three months in jail, then she suffers a setback to her $100 million E-Trade lawsuit. And to cap it all off, some plastic surgeon gave her a trout pout!

There is definitely too much filler in her upper lip, causing it to be larger than her lower lip and violating the natural 1:1.5 ratio (the lower lip should be 1.5 times the width of the upper lip). At least while she sits in the clink her upper lip will settle down, so hopefully by the time she walks free her lips will look normal once again.
