They were the perfect couple: He composed and she sang his songs. British ex-couple Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Sara Brightman may no longer love each other, but they share the same love for plastic surgery.
Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber is currently appearing on American Idol where he is helping to mentor the remaining contestants. The British composer has never been the most attractive man, but in recent years, he has taken on a downright peculiar appearance. Some parts of his face look unusually tight and some look like they really do belong on the 60-year old man. Sir Andrew is beginning to look like the facially deformed hero of his famous work The Phantom of the Opera, with his wide-open eyes, the work of a possible blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and browlift (forehead lift), but an aging, drooping double chin.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn agrees, saying, “A person can look unusual if one part of his or her face is rejuvenated and younger-looking, while the rest of the face continues to look older” attributing to the half young/half old look to an “upper blepharoplasty, where the excess skin of his upper eyelids was removed. They look much more open now. This may have been combined with a browlift as well.”
This is the risk of plastic surgery when someone decides to address only one area of their face, as this can result in asymmetry in the overall appearance and lead one to look older in one area but younger in another. This is common in poorly executed plastic surgeries that leave the recipient of the surgery looking unnaturally young and old at the same time. A better approach for Sir Andrew would have been to focus on all the facial structures and address them all together.
Sir Andrew’s influence on his ex-wife, British singer Sara Brightman, doesn’t seem to have ended with their marriage and musical collaborations, as the 47-year old beauty also looks to have gone under the knife.
Sara Brightman is best known for her collaborations with Sir Andrew, but has also found success in a solo career, focusing on combining her classically trained voice with elements of pop music. When Sara was married to the much older Sir Andrew, she had a nearly middle-aged appearance, with frizzy hair and wore loose fitting matronly clothes. Now, the singer has a younger boyfriend and looks much younger herself, with glowing skin and wearing snug-fitting clothes. The singer has admitted to having undergone liposuction in her twenties, as well as having a crown on a chipped tooth. It appears, though, that she also underwent a nose job in her younger years.
Sara attributes her youthful appearance to her move from Britain to Germany at the beginning of the 1990s. She has also said, “I was quite middle-aged when I was younger. I always felt older than my years, maybe because I was married to someone older.”
Geographic moves aside, Make Me Heal thinks that Sara may be leaving out some cosmetic procedures along the way to Germany. We suspect some form of laser skin resurfacing, like ActiveFX and possible dermal injections, like Botox, as the soprano seems to have remarkably smooth skin and only a few fine lines and crow’s feet around her middle-aged eyes. Moreover, Sara’s nose may have withstood a second nose job, as her tip appears more upturned than before.
Since their split in 1990, Sara seems to have undergone successful plastic surgery procedures, restoring her youthful appearance, and while Sir Andrew appears to have had some work done, it does not seem to have been especially successful in giving him an entirely natural appearance.
