Courteney Cox has come under fire in recent years for being overly friendly with her plastic surgeon, getting filled with Botox and other injectables. In light of her recent divorce filing, Makemeheal.com thinks she may want to break up with plastic surgey as well.
47-year old Courteney Cox has openly admitted to using Botox and fillers like Juvederm (See Make Me Heal’s story on Courteney Cox’s plastic surgery), but the Cougar Town star looks like she has over indulged in the anti-aging procedures, giving her a very odd appearance, with an excessively wide mouth and strange facial expressions.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. Elliot Jacobs says, “Ms. Cox has unnatural, overly large lips, which seem to have lost any natural contours. In addition, she has had Botox to the lower forehead, which is smooth while the upper half of her forehead is naturally wrinkled when she raises her brows — it looks quite odd. Also, there is an unnatural spread of the inner portions of the brows, which is indicative of too much Botox to treat the natural vertical lines between the brows.”
London plastic surgeon Dr. Julian de Silva specializes in facial plastic surgery says, “The appearance of a joker face is usually caused by an excessive volume of a filler placed into the lips and face. Why does excessive filler in the face may a person look like a joker? There is a normal harmony in the lips, the upper lip is usually smaller that the lower lip. There are some natural lines in the face that lie between the lower lids and the lips, an absence of these lines results in a loss of character to the face, in other words can make a person look different. Why has this happened? The commonest reason is too much volume of filler has been placed in the lips and surrounding soft tissues. An increased volume of filler injected into the lips, will smooth out the wrinkles and lines that surround the lips. However the increased volume of filler disrupts the normal shape and curvature of the lips, the top of the upper lid is usually defined by the presence of a sharp Cupid’s bow and precise border with the surrounding skin. The other reason is the type of filler used; some types of hyaluronic acid attract water into the lips resulting in swelling and enlarged lips. What can be done about it? An antidote can be used to reverse the enlargement however is dependent on what has been used to enlarge the lips. Most commonly a hyaluronic acid is used as the filler, in which case the antidote can be injected into the lip that will caused the filler to disperse into water.”
Breaking up is hard to do and Makemeheal.com wishes Courteney the best of luck. We also hope she does what many recent divorcees do and changes her look a little. In her case, laying off some of her plastic surgery treatments.
