Sports fans everywhere have been puzzling about the altered appearance of sports writer Bob Ryan. Although mainly known for his column, Bob occasionally appears on television to lend his expertise. It seems that he got carried away trying to look good for the camera and ended up with some bad plastic surgery.
Never a looker, 63-year old Bob has recently taken on a very odd appearance, with his swollen-looking lips and overly arched brows. His entire face has a preternaturally pulled appearance, indicating a possible over-zealous facelift, browlift and either an allergic reaction or lip fillers, which are unusual for a man.
New York City plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Comparing the most recent photo of Bob Ryan to previous images, Bob’s eyebrows appear elevated and peaked in their center. Due to the lack of evidence of incisions one may suspect an endoscopic brow lift. However the unnatural kink in the center of each brow leads to the suspicion of a thread brow lift. I don’t know what’s going on with his lips. It is either a bad allergic reaction or some overzealous injections. Hopefully they will look better when the swelling goes down.”
Bob’s new appearance draws comparisons to clowns, with his over-inflated lips, and other victims of bad plastic surgery.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., says, “It looks as though he’s had a brow lift, facelift, lips injected with a filler. He looks pulled, unnatural and absolutely fake. Like Burt Reynolds.”
Male plastic surgery, especially around the eyes, can leave men with a somewhat feminine appearance like Kenny Rogers. Men usually don’t use lip fillers because they too can look somewhat feminine.
Some sources have attributed Bob’s new appearance to a dermatological procedure to prevent cancer, although it is unclear how that would affect his appearance so drastically.
Make Me Heal thinks that until his plastic surgery settles in, or his allergic reaction dissipates, it is best if Bob sticks to writing his commentary rather than going live.
