David Cassidy was every girl’s dream back in the 70s when he played the sexy lead singer of the Partridge Family. But now plastic surgery may be turning David into more of nightmare.
The Partridge Family sitcom of the 70s featured a family rock band. Now David is reliving his past on the new ABC Family show Ruby and the Rockits, alongside tween star Alexa Vega. While David’s rock and roll style may be the same as way back when, his face is decidedly different looking.
At 59, many fans have noticed that David’s cute looks that made him a favorite of teenage girls have all but disappeared, along with his long, shaggy locks. While aging affects us all, David appears to have fought nature with some plastic surgery that has left him looking very “plastic.”
In the past, when questioned about plastic surgery, David has said, “No, no facelift. I don’t smoke. I hardly drink. And I take regular exercise.”
David’s skin is preternaturally smooth, which could be indicative of a facelift, but is more likely the result of more non-invasive procedures, like facial injectables like Botox and skin resurfacing treatments, like laser treatments or chemical peels.
Also, while David has always had full “apple” cheeks, they look even higher and fuller now than they did on the Partridge Family. As cheeks tend to lose fullness and droop as people age, it is likely that David has been rejuvenating his face with fillers or fat grafting.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “I agree, David Cassidy does look very plastic lately. He appears to have Botox in the glabella, leading to wide set eyebrows and in the forehead, leading to low-set and peaked brows. He would benefit from less Botox in the forehead and little more in the crow’s feet area. He also appears to have full cheeks, which may be the result of fillers or fat grafting. He skin is smooth, which is likely the result of laser, chemical peels or IPL.”
David may also have had a browlift and blepharoplasty to help elevate his brows to their current level, and may have also had hair transplants as well, as his hairline is strikingly perfect.
Plastic surgeon Dr Sherrell J Aston says, “I believe that David Cassidy has always had a youthful appearance. However, after reviewing his latest photographs I think he may have had some surgery to enhance his looks. He appears to be very tight around his eyes and his forehead looks elevated. It is likely that Mr. Cassidy had a Brow Lift and a Blepharoplasty to achieve this look. In addition to these surgical procedures it is also possible that he has had hair transplants and had Botox injections.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “David Cassidy looks great and has that rejuvenated look, mostly in his upper and midface. Looking at the lack of wrinkles in his forehead, it looks like he’s had a browlift, in addition to a facelift and fat grafting to keep his cheeks plump and rejuvenated. His chin looks a little broader than it did when he was in his teens so a chin implant is also a possibility.”
Make Me Heal is glad to see the Grammy-nominated entertainer’s return to TV in such a family-friendly capacity and looks forward to seeing what plastic surgery David undergoes next.
