65-year old Gary Busey’s personal life has made him nearly as famous as his on-screen antics. From arrests to motorcycle accidents, Gary’s active lifestyle has taken a toll on his face that plastic surgery did very little to correct.
While some have speculated that Gary’s uneven eyes are the result of a botched facelift or eyelid surgery, Make Me Heal believes it is more likely that they are a consequence of the motorcycle accident Gary experienced.
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn explains:
“I understand that Gary Busey was in a terrible motorcycle accident some time ago, which caused significant brain damage and possibly also facial bone fractures. The head injury could explain his extra-friendly behavior to Jennifer Garner on the red carpet of the Oscars, and an orbit fracture can explain the asymmetry in his eyes. He may have a condition of his left eye called orbital dystopia, which occurs when the floor of the eye socket is fractured, causing the eyeball to migrate downward. It is frequently combined with enopthalmos, where the eyeball becomes sunken in due to similar factors. It can be improved via facial recontruction surgery, often using bone from his skull or a titanium plate to remake the floor of his eye socket.”
While Gary’s eyes certainly give him a jarring appearance, part of his plasticized look come from his apparent dental veneers.
Plastic surgeon Dr Sherrell J Aston says, “It does appear that Mr. Busey has had dental veneers. They may be a little bit large in some people’s judgment.”
Ocbody.com Surgeon John Di Saia MD says, “I think he had them a while ago. They seem too large. Maybe he had them redone.”
While straight, white teeth are often taken as a sign of youth, when they are too perfect they can end up looking like false teeth and actually age a person, as in the case of young Ali Lohan(See Make Me Heal’s story on Ali Lohan’s dental veneers).
New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “It certainly looks like Gary Busey has dental veneers. Veneers can often look strange if they are too perfect.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “It is likely that Gary Busey had veneers. Veneers can look like perfect teeth, which are evident on Gary.”
His odd looks and behavior problems aside; Gary is still a talented actor. You can see the Oscar-nominated actor next in Brian DePalma’s upcoming film Down and Distance.
