54-year old supermodel Christie Brinkley is in the middle of a bitter divorce battle. But does the mother of three also battle aging with plastic surgery? Make Me Heal investigates.
Christie Brinkley looks so much like she did back in her modeling heydays of the late 70s and 80s that Make Me Heal suspects that Christie has gradually done plastic surgery procedures over the years in order to maintain her youthful appearance without appearing drastically different.
Christie’s eyes appear very bright and refreshed, without any of the sagging skin or wrinkles that usually accompany a woman in her fifties. In the past, Christie may have had a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) on her upper eyelids to help eliminate sagging. She may have also had a mini necklift, because some former pictures revealed the beginning of jowls and sagging skin around the jawline, which subsequently could have been pulled up and tightened to achieve Christie’s younger, more refreshed appearance.
Christie Brinkley most likely gets rid of crow’s feet around her eyes by using an injectable filler, like Restylane or Juvederm. She likely also uses these fillers to fill in the deep lines that stretch from the nose to the mouth, known as nasolabial folds. She may also plump up her cheeks with a similar filler. Models often have high cheekbones with full cheeks, which can begin to sag with age. An injectable filler like Restylane or fat grafting can help the cheeks plump up and look younger. To get rid of the fine, horizontal lines that creep up on foreheads, Chrtistie probably uses Botox to relax the frown muscles there.
As Christie maintains a sun-kissed glow, but has no sun damage on her face, she is either using tanners and bronzers or uses laser treatments to achieve the fresh youthful glow without the consequences of sun damage. This theory makes sense especially since she does have some freckling below the neck, yet none on her face. Laser treatments like CoolTouch, Active FX or Fraxel help minimize fine lines and facial blemishes and reduce the effects of sun damage.
Christie has long been an advocate of exercise and good diet, as a vegetarian who has in passed fitness equipment, like The Total Gym System. So while it is possible that Christie has managed to maintain her body without liposuction or liposculpture procedures, it is unlikely that her breasts have actually gotten bigger and perkier after having children. Christie often appears both on and off the red carpet without wearing any apparent kind of support, and she still manages to have full round breasts that ride high, which are signs of a breast augmentation. The breast implants are not overly large, making them a job well-done. It is likely that she has also gotten a breast lift to undo any sagging that has occurred over the years.
Although it seems that Christie has several plastic surgery procedures under her belt, she seems to be denying it. Christie says the idea of surgery scares her, and said after seeing plastic surgery being performed on a reality TV show, “I don’t rule it out, I’m just a chicken. I stumbled upon a (TV) channel once, where I actually saw the guy (surgeon) with his hand inside the person’s cheek. I just don’t think I would be brave enough for that.”
It seems to Make Me Heal that Christie summoned up her courage and had plastic surgery after all, looking better than ever after 50.
On the other hand, there could be a remote possibility that Christie has incredible genes and simply ages well naturally. In reaction to Christie’s comment about being scared of plastic surgery, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says on his blog, “While plastic surgery is definitely not for everybody, it’s very easy for one of the world’s most beautiful women to say something like this since she doesn’t need it anyway!”
If Christie has had plastic surgery, she joins a legion of supermodels seeking to further enhance their appearances, including Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Elle Macphearson and others. See Make Me Heal’s stories on the plastic surgery of supermodel moms, including Heidi Klum’s breast implants, and Elle Macphearson’s plastic surgery.
Regardless of whether plastic surgery is involved, Christie Brinkley is hot and whatever she’s doing is working just beautifully. Now if she can just give us her plastic surgeon’s number, it would be much appreciated.
