The highly anticipated return of Arrested Development brought a lot of hype and then a lot of disappointment. It also brought a lot of suspicion from fans that noticed that Portia de Rossi looks like she spent the years between seasons undergoing plastic surgery.
40-year old Portia de Rossi plays self-obsessed Lindsay Funke on the cult hit television show Arrested Development. After a hiatus of several years, the show came back for a special season on Netflix. Although the show covered what the stars had been doing over the years, it never brought Lindsay’s plastic surgery to the audience’s attention, which makes Makemeheal.com suspect that the work is actually Portia’s (See Make Me Heal’s story on Portia De Rossi’s plastic surgery).
Although some fan sites speculated that in addition to a trip to India, Lindsay had also made a trip or two to a plastic surgeon in the years between seasons, and Portia was simply wearing makeup to reflect that, it seems more like that Portia has been under the knife, not her character.
Portia looks as though she has had quite a bit of work done, possibly as part of her efforts to get back on the small screen. Possible enhancements include a brow lift, upper and lower eyelid lift, either cheek implants or copious amounts of fillers placed in her cheeks as well as lip fillers, laser treatments a facelift, and maybe even a nose surgery.
For some reason, she chose not to get fillers injected into her nasolabial folds which run from the nose to the lips, resulting in a somewhat Joker-like look. Perhaps if she had stuck to only getting fillers in her nasolabial folds, the results would not be so obvious.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Westreich says, ” I think she had the kitchen sink. Brow lift, upper eyelid lift, lower eyelid lift, cheek implants or filler, lip augmentation, and probably some laser. It’s also possible they threw in a facelift too and, potentially a Rhinoplasty. Nasolabial fold filler would have probably been enough. The eyebrows are way too arched. That may be a botox effect in addition to a brow lift. Hopefully they will settle down to a lower place!”
Whether fans loved or loathed the new season of Arrested Development, Portia certainly got people talking about it.
