It seems that former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner and stepdad to Kim Kardashian and her sisters has gotten tired of making the list of worst celebrity plastic surgery and has decided to go under the knife again.
59-year old Bruce is the stepfather of the the Kim Kardashian clan and is probably the family member that Kim had hinted would be going under the knife soon (See Make Me Heal’s story on the Kardashian family Gets More Plastic Surgery).
Just as she had teased that “Someone in the Kardashian family will soon have plastic surgery,” Kim was also the Kardashian who spilled the beans on which family member she was talking about: step-father Bruce.
Bruce Jenner was formerly part of Make Me Heal’s lineup on male celebrities with bad plastic surgery for the overly tight facelift and over-aggressive rhinoplasty, which gave him a feminine appearance (See Make Me Heal’s story on Bad Male Plastic Surgery).
On her blog, Kim said, “”Twenty five years ago, Bruce was ill-advised by a doctor to have a partial facelift and a nose job. Unfortunately, the result wasn’t what Bruce had hoped for and for years since then he has been the victim of cruel taunts from the media. Since he’s turning 60 in October, Bruce felt it was time to correct the mistakes made by the previous doctor so he went to a new doctor for a second facelift. The results are amazing! Bruce looks better than ever and he is extremely happy with the result.”
To correct Bruce’s awful plastic surgery, New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Based on the photos, Bruce would benefit from a facelift and neck lift. He has redundant submental skin distorting his jaw and neck line.”
Because Bruce’s previous plastic surgery was so aggressive, his surgeon would have to tread carefully this time to keep his appearance youthful, but not overdone.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston says, ” Bruce Jenner is a perfect example of what can happen with a partial facelift. The cheeks are tight and the neck is sagging. This can only be corrected with a full facelift and neck lift. The platysma muscle in the neck is sagging; there is some fat and excess skin. He can get an excellent result by a master facelift surgeon. His brows are a little low but I would just do the Face/Neck lift procedure so as to not make him look done. His previous rhinoplasty can also be improved significantly.”
Photos of Bruce’s new look are out, and the results are much improved. His “new” face doesn’t appear nearly as tightly pulled as it did formerly.
Facial plastic surgery expert Dr. Paul S. Nassif says, “I know the surgeon who did Bruce Jenner’s revision facelift. He did a great job making it look more natural and less pulled. To revise a facelift, you have to change the direction of pull, make it a more vertical lift and not as tightly pulled. Cheers to his new facelift!”
While Bruce may never be restored to his former glory, it’s gratifying to see that he is finally happy with the results of his plastic surgery and hopefully, this will be it for his time under the knife.
