Actress Courtney Thorne-Smith rose to fame on the 90s evening soap Melrose Place. Now that Melrose Place is getting a makeover, Make Me Heal wonders if the original stars are getting redone as well.
42-year old Courtney has largely dropped out of the limelight since Melrose Place ended in the late 90s. But when she resurfaced on the semi-popular sitcom According to Jim a few years later, many wondered if she had had some refreshment.
Always pretty, Courtney has been looking even more youthful and refreshed as of late. While she is looking as though Botox is clearly a part of her beauty regime, smoothing out fine lines across her forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes, it is somewhat uncertain as to whether Courtney has taken more drastic measures.
New York plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “She looks refreshed and awake. If she did have some Botox whoever administered it did so conservatively, therefore she has good results.”
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Courtney Thorne-Smith looks great. She seems to have Botox on board, since her glabella (between her eyebrows) is smooth and her forehead is free from wrinkles. There is nothing wrong with smooth skin.”
Some photos indicate that if Courtney has had more invasive plastic surgery, the procedures include a blepharoplasty and possible browlift.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J Aston says, “Courtney Thorne-Smith looks great and I think it may be from a combination of weight loss, Blepharoplasty and Botox. Also, her new fresh hairstyle frames her face nicely and gives her a very young look. In my opinion her surgeon did a great job with giving her a natural result.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California, says, “It’s a little unfair to compare the photos since Courtney is squinting in the sun in one and the other’s at night, but she may have had a browlift that pulls up her nose a bit. Looks like she has had some Botox to her masseter muscle to soften her jawline and her jaw looks great.”
While Courtney hasn’t admitted to making an appearance on the new version of Melrose Place yet, it seems likely that she’ll show up sometime, to boost her own ratings if nothing else.
