Charlie Sheen’s hit television show Two and a Half Men has been cancelled for the rest of the season, to the disappointment of many loyal fans. But although Charlie’s weekly appearances on primetime are now officially over, it seems that fans and not fans are seeing more of Charlie than ever, thanks to his fantastic exploits and frequent interviews. Seeing how Charlie looks lately, it seems that he could use some help from plastic surgery, in addition to that of a mental health professional.
45-year old Charlie Sheen has long been touted as one of Hollywood’s baddest bad boys. For a while there, it looked like he had reformed but since destroying a New York hotel room, it seems he’s been on a long and windy downward spiral.
Charlie’s brother, actor and director Emilio Estevez, has also been under the knife, as his ex-wife actress Denise Richards.
Emilio has likely had a browlift, rhinoplasty, and may have had an injectable filler to add volume to his cheeks. Emilio has hollows under his eyes and very arches brows indicating a possible browlift. His nose appears straighter and with a more rounded tip indicating a possible rhinoplasty. The lack of furrows on his forehead and lack of crow’s feet around the eyes indicate the use of injectable fillers like Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm (See Make Me Heal’s story on Emilio Estevez’s plastic surgery).
Denise has admitted to having three breast augmentations and likely also uses fillers like Radiesse as well as Botox to stay young and fresh (See Make Me Heal’s story on Denise Richards’ breast augmentation).
Partying with his “Goddesses” and appearing on every possible broadcast medium know to man, from the Internet to traditional television and radio talk shows, looks to have taken a toll on Charlie Sheen. Instead of focusing on tiger blood and flaming fists, Charlie may want to consider some good ole plastic surgery to cure what ails his tired features.
Since leaving rehab and embarking on a media frenzy, Charlie looks to have aged considerably. Loosing volume in his face and with bags under his eyes, Charlie either needs to stop talking and start sleeping or get some fat grafts and fillers like Sculptra placed in his face, especially in the hollows of his cheeks. He could also use eyelid surgery to take care of his sags and bags under his eyes. And a little Botox would definitely help eliminate the perpetually worried look caused by the 11 between his eyebrows, as well as relax the lines across his forehead and even his neck. Most likely, he could also do with some chemical peels or laser resurfacing with a laser treatment such as Fraxel.
Dr. Alexander Rivkin, a Yale-trained facial cosmetic surgeon and UCLA faculty member, with practices in Malibu and Westwood, says, “Charlie Sheen – the face of winning, the not so winning face of Charlie Sheen. The years of abusing his body with drugs have taken their toll on Sheen. Even TV makeup cannot hide the poor quality (in his case you can clearly see that his skin has lost much of its elasticity and hangs more loosely than it should in a guy his age) of his skin and the gauntness of his face. Drugs have accelerated the natural volume loss that befalls all of us with time. It seems like he could really benefit from Sculptra re-volumizing throughout his cheeks. The advantage to Sculptra is that it will also improve the quality of his skin through collagen stimulation. He could also do with some Juvederm filling of his tear troughs. The depth of the depressions of his tear troughs gives him the circles under his eyes that make him look more tired and haggard than he would otherwise. Filling of his nasolabial folds with Juvederm would be a good idea. I would guess that laser resurfacing would be nice, although I would have to see his skin without makeup to be sure.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Charlie Sheen does look quite worn down recently. To help improve his appearance he could use some Botox to his forehead to smooth out all the wrinkles and lines and some dermal fillers to improve the hollows below his eyes and around his cheeks. Ultimately, nothing is going to make him look better until he is feeling better.”
Before embarking on plastic surgery, he should really visit a mental health professional, as many experts seem to think that Charlie’s recent rash behavior is the result of bipolar disorder.
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says, “What the heck is going on with Charlie Sheen? It seems the Charlie Sheen crash-and-burn publicity tour is exploding, with him giving the most revealing interviews seen since… well… ever! Some people are speculating that he may be manic-depressive, others that he’s on drugs, and even others believe that he is just leading the lifestyle everyone else wants (he’s just ‘winning!”). So what do I think?”
“First of all, I am not a psychiatrist, but I have some psychiatry training, mainly back in medical school where I spent several months working in a Maximum Security prison (you can read about that in my upcoming book In Stitches). Although one cannot make a diagnosis based on TV interviews alone, all signs point to me that Charlie Sheen has bipolar disorder (manic depression). This is a psychiatric condition where a person goes back and for between episodes of mania and depression, often with relatively ‘normal’ intervals in between. He currently appears to be in a manic state. What symptoms of mania does he exhibit? A LOT! Here are some:
Appearing ‘jumpy,’ agitated, and wired
Talking very fast, jumping from one idea to another
Being restless, sleeping little
Having an unrealistic belief in one’s abilities
Behaving impulsively and taking part in pleasurable, high risk behaviors.”
“One scary fact is that bipolar patients have a 60 times higher risk of suicide versus the general population. I hope someone gets through to this great actor before the Charlie Sheen Train crashes and burns.”
While it was unclear for a while whether or not Charlie would be returning to Two and a Half Men, Warner Bros. released a statement, officially relieving the trouble actor of his position on the show:
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately.”
To which Charlie has responded:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
Charlie clearly needs more help than plastic surgery can provide, and Makemeheal.com hope he gets it sooner rather than later, or how can he possible continue winning?
