Make Me Heal reported when Sylvester Stallone’s ex-wife Brigitte Nielsen planned to go under the knife on German TV (See Make Me Heal’s story on Brigitte Nielsen’s plastic surgery). Now she’s out of the operating room and back on the street, looking better than ever.
On the show, Brigitte received multiple cosmetic procedures, which according to her report at the time included, “a complete renewal: facelift, eyelift, fat injections in my face, liposuction, a breast lift and I need new teeth.”
During a facelift procedure, the surgeon will place tiny incisions within the hair line and within the natural contours of the ear, then pull the skin up and back and remove any excess skin for a younger, tighter appearance. An eyelift, or blepharoplasty, corrects drooping upper eyelids and/or puffy bags under the eyes and may or may not be performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make tiny incisions in the natural creases of the eyes and then remove excess skin, muscle, and fat to produce the desired effect. Fat injections help fill in deep hollows and creases for a more full and youthful appearance. Although Brigitte doesn’t say what areas of the body she is having liposuction performed on, in some reports it was on her thighs, where it is often used, as well as the stomach, to improve the body’s contour by removing fat from between the skin and muscle. A breast lift raises and firms the breasts through the removal of excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue with an incision made around the areola and going straight down, lifting the areola to a more youthful position. Make Me Heal hopes that Brigitte is exaggerating her need for new teeth and is only getting veneers placed on her existing teeth, rather than actually getting new teeth through means of implants, which can be a lengthy process.
Brigitte was very open in her wish to break the mystique of Hollywood, saying:
“I know I am the first female celebrity in the world who has allowed herself to be filmed like that in an operating theater. I know I will be breaking a taboo. But I’m sure that it will provoke a new discussion. It’s time things change. I feel 30 and want to look that way again. The secrecy in Hollywood is annoying. You can see that the stars do not age naturally. It’s not right that the fans, the normal women, are lied to.”
Now that 44-year old surgery has met her goal of showing the world what it takes to look good, the world will have to wait and see if she also gets to show off her new body in Playboy magazine, twenty years after she first appeared on the cover.
While Make Me Heal thinks that Brigitte’s plastic surgery was more successful than her ex-husband’s Sly (Read Make Me Heal’s story on Sylvester Stallone’s plastic surgery); we’re not sure that she looks 30 again.
