At 57-years old, Christie Brinkley looks amazing with the help of some great plastic surgery. Brinkley has admitted to having plastic surgery in the form of a facelift and a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to get rid of the sagging eyes, and a mini necklift to get rid of the sagging jowls. In addition to the surgical procedures, it is likely that this former supermodel uses fillers to keep her cheeks looking firm and plump. While this gorgeous face has landed Christie Brinkley many roles on Broadway, it is her hands that tell the true story.
In order for Brinkley to conceal her true age it is suggested that she use laser treatments or even chemical peels to get rid of the age spots and wrinkles that are extremely visible on the backs of her hands. Her focus now should be to create a smoother appearance on her hands to go along with the soft appearance of her face.
The hands are easily forgotten when it comes to fighting the aging process but as evident by the photo of Christie Brinkley it is just as important to take care of our hands as it is the rest of our body. After all, the appearance of the hands is a true sign of age.
Some people are just not blessed with perfectly perky and beautifully shaped breasts and actress, Anna Faris, is all too familiar with having small breasts. Faris admits that after having starred in the film House Bunny, she realized when the filming concluded she was missing her fuller, sexier, and curvier look; that is when she decided to have breast augmentation surgery. The 34-year old actress explains “It was so fun to feel over-the-top ridiculous and sexy” and now she can feel that way permanently. Faris also goes on to describe that her desire for breast augmentation “wasn’t a career thing – it was a divorce thing.” Just as the actress sought a physical enhancement during this particular transitional period in her life, many people express the desire for a new look when going through a divorce.
Unlike many celebrities, Anna Faris embraces her new look and we love that she doesn’t mind sharing it with the world. Thanks to a little Plastic Surgery she feels beautiful and it shows!
Lady Gaga is well known for her appearance, which ranges from beyond avant-garde style choices to prosthetics glued on to her body. Still with all her playing with the idea of body modifications, Lady Gaga insists that she’s never been under the knife for plastic surgery.
25-year old pop performer Lady Gaga opened up her views on plastic surgery, despite rumors of having had rhinoplasty and liposuction and breast augmentation in the past (See Make Me Heal’s story on Lady Gaga’s plastic surgery).
In the May issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed, “I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have.”
“I think promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.”
“And how many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery?”
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia writes, “Lady Gaga plays the media like a violin so her motivations are not always easy to understand. Images of her before her fame are hard to come by and she modifies her appearance constantly via numerous elaborate outfits. In few words, that makes her hard to figure on the question of plastic surgery. How she justifies significant modification via non surgical means and denounces anything surgical is kinda arbitrary as well.”
“On her vow to never have plastic surgery, she is only 25. Give her time.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, “So strange. I would bet on makeup, since body modification like this (implanting metal rods), especially if performed by a non-plastic surgeon, is extremely painful and fraught with complications. Her music is pretty darn catchy though!”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It looks like Lady Gaga may not have been born that way. She appears to have had a very conservative Rhinoplasty and clearly uses Botox to give her that perfectly smooth forehead.”
Lady Gaga certainly knows how to create controversy, both with her songs and public statements, but mostly with her outlandish appearances.
Celebrities are always on the cover of the hottest magazines, newspapers, and billboards thus their constant battle for perfection. Being in the spotlight forces many people, including the ever-so-beautiful Uma Thurman, to constantly re-evaluate their appearance.
The over 40 year-old mother of two looked more radiant than ever at the recent Cannes Film Festival. It is assumed that plastic surgery is likely one of the reasons for her flawless beauty. It has been rumored that Uma Thurman had a Rhinoplasty (nose job) earlier in her career but even more recently there is speculation that she is visiting a Plastic Surgeon for assistance with her fine lines and wrinkles.
Uma Thurman appears to be getting a little Botox in her forehead and possibly even a small amount of Filler such as Restylane or Juvederm to fill the deeper creases around her mouth. Such injections help to maintain a youthful appearance when a person may not be a candidate for a face-lift. Although Injectables and Fillers do not replace the results of a surgical procedure they do assist in minimizing the aging process. A New York based Plastic Surgeon writes, “It looks like she has had some Botox in her forehead and filler in her smile lines. Everything is so well done and looks so natural.”
Ultimately, Celebrities are not the only ones seeking to maintain their beauty and slow down the aging process but thankfully with the skills of an experienced Plastic Surgeon everyone has the ability to look just as radiant as Uma Thurman!
