And the 2011 plastic surgery Best Male Actor Oscar nominees are…
Javier Bardem (Biutiful)
41-year old Javier Bardem used to have a reputation as nothing more than a pretty face, but his strong acting skills and Oscar win has changed that. Now Javier’s rugged good looks have him on the line for another Oscar, and while he may have had some Botox or fillers to smooth out his skin, what her really could use is an upper eyelid lift to open up his face.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Javier Bardem does not appear to have had any work performed to his face. There is a possibility of Botox and facial fillers but that is all. Overall he has a natural look, and it is up to him if he chooses to have any procedures performed.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “I do not believe that Javier Bardem has done any cosmetic enhancements. He has a natural rugged look. He would benefit from an upper eyelid lift or Blepharoplasty, and some Botox to lift his eyebrows and smooth out his forehead.”
Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network)
27-year old Jesse Eisenberg is best known for being the sweet dork in comedies before shocking the world with his performance in The Social Network. The slightly goofy-looking actor comes by his looks naturally, but if he ever wanted to try to be a more traditional-looking leading man, he might benefit from a nose job and to balance out his prominent chin.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Jesse Eisenberg does not appear to have had any work performed to his face. He is still young and has a natural look, and would not benefit from any procedures at this time.”
Dr. Salzhauer says, “Jesse Eisenberg does not appear to have had any cosmetic surgery. He has an exceptional chin and jaw structure. I would recommend that in the future he has a Nose Job, or Rhinoplasty, to bring more balance and proportion to his face. With a defined and proportionate nose to that strong chin and jaw, his look will be incredible.”
Colin Firth (The King’s Speech)
50-year old Colin Firth has been a favorite actor in England, but his international profile has blossomed in recent years, thanks to roles in rom-coms. His nomination for Best Leading Actor last year has cemented his talents and he has become a Hollywood staple. Colin appears to be natural, although his prominent cheeks could be benefiting from facial fillers like Sculptra. Before the big event, Colin may want to try some Botox injections to smooth out his brow and the space between his brows.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Colin Firth does not appear to have had any work performed to his face. He may benefit from Botox and facial filers, but any work he chooses to have performed is a personal decision.”
Dr. Salzhauer says, ” Colin Firth has very full cheeks which may be from dermal fillers injections such as Sculptra. I would not enhance his cheeks any more as they have become a very prominent feature on his face, but he could benefit from some Botox to his upper face.”
James Franco (127 Hours)
32-year old James Franco may be one of the most successful actors his age, easily switching between intense dramas and slapstick comedies, with seemingly little effort. This year, James is not only a contender for the Best Actor Oscar, but also co-hosting the awards show, so he may want to get a little Botox for his dual role.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “James Franco does not appear to have had any surgical procedures performed to his face. He has a young and natural appearance, and would not benefit from any surgical or non-surgical procedures prior to his red carpet appearance.”
Dr. Salzhauer says, ” Maybe a little Botox to his forehead, but outside of that I do not think James Franco has had any cosmetic work done. He could use some Botox to treat those crow’s feet, which are the wrinkles on the lateral eyes which is most apparent when you smile or squint.”
61-year old Jeff Bridges has had a busy year since winning last year’s Best Male Actor Oscar. Although he’s starred in more than one movie, it doesn’t look like he’s taken time to have a little plastic surgery, as Makemeheal.com suggested (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jeff Bridges’ plastic surgery). If Jeff wanted to take a break from the big screen and take time for himself, he could benefit from a browlift and eyelid surgery as well as a possible facelift and necklift in addition to a round of Botox and facial fillers to make him look a little more like he did in the original Tron. With or without fixing his sagging eyelids, Jeff is doing a great job.
Sarasota , Florida Plastic Surgeon J. David Holcomb, MD has never treated Jeff Bridges as a patient but did tell Make Me Heal, “Agree that likely has not had plastic surgery. Could benefit from a brow lift and eyelid surgery as well as Botox and possibly a neck lift.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Jeff Bridges does not appear to have had any plastic surgery performed to his face at this time. He may benefit from a blepharoplasty, facelift, necklift, Botox, and facial fillers. Any work Jeff chooses to have performed in the future is a personal decision.”
Dr. Salzhauer says, “Jeff Bridges’ natural rugged look seemed perfect for his character in the movie True Grit. He was true to his character in his raw and untreated appearance. Although he could certainly use some Botox and fillers to smooth out some of those lines, I don’t think it fits his persona.”
Makemeheal.com looks forward to seeing how all the Best Actor nominees turn out on the red carpet.
