Have these celebrities been plumping up with fillers to stay young and beautiful? Their makeovers have left them looking like they’re ready to pop
IN TOUCH MARCH 22, 2010
The latest beauty treatments have turned back time for some women – but unfortunately, they also seem to have turned some Hollywood stars into alien creatures! “Fillers like Juvederm XC, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse add volume so you can look young again,” explains Dr. Gerald D. Ginsberg, medical director at TriBeCa MedSpa in NYC. But it’s easy to get carried away, resulting in fish lips and chipmunk cheeks – and that’s in addition to melon-sized boobs. “Women start to believe, ‘If a little is good, more must be better.’” says Dr. Michael Salzhauer of The Real Dr. Miami in Miami. And when it conies to filling up, it appears that these celebs forgot to say when!
SHE CAN’T HIDE IT
While Madonna has said, “I’m not going to have a press conference if I have plastic surgery,” Dr. Salzhauer thinks the Material Girl, 51, has packed 4 cc of filler into each cheek.
SHE KNOWS IT’S BAD
Lisa Rinna told In Touch she “went too far” with Juvederm injections in her cheeks. “I don’t want to look weird,” admits the star, who also has permanent silicone implants in her lips.
KIM HAS A NEW FACE
Lil’ Kim loves being the center of attention, but now it’s her face that has everyone shocked – she looks like a different person! “It looks like she injected apples into her cheeks!” notes Dr. Ginsberg.
LINDSAY’S FULLY LOADED
Lindsay Lohan says, “It’s sad and disgusting that anybody would have work done at my age.” But Dr. Salzhauer thinks the 23-year-old got “way too much filler.” He estimates that she has 2 cc – almost a half teaspoon – in her upper lip alone!
SHE WANTS TO BE PRETTIER
“I felt insecure next to Audrina and Heidi,” explains The Hills’ Stephanie Pratt. Spartanburg, S.C., plastic surgeon Dr. Michael believes she may have used a filler and says, “Women who go overboard with injectables have un-realistic expectations.”
