Funny man Gary Shandling hasn’t been in the limelight lately, but Make Me Heal suspects he has been spending his time off from entertainment getting plastic surgery.
Turning 60 at the end of the month, Gary has begun to look his age and has likely turned to plastic surgery to keep him camera ready for his appearance in the Iron Man sequel, due out next year. Gary’s plastic surgery seems obvious to Make Me Heal, because his neck and face no longer match.
Gary may have had cosmetic surgery on his neck, as either liposuction or a necklift.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Obviously something is different with Gary Shandling’s neck from the before and after photos. Whether he had liposuction of the neck or a neck lift is unclear.”
The other reason his neck appears to be a different age from his face is that his face has gone through plastic surgery, but the doctor failed to make his neck match. As a result, his face appears smooth, while his neck remains wrinkled.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Ellenbogen says, “Gary Shandling looks bloated. His neck is so fat, either his plastic surgeon didn’t know how to do necks, or he simply went to some injectables-crazy dermatologist who never looked below his jawline. Plastic surgery is a balance of all parts of the face. If they all fit, nobody knows. Gary Shandling doesn’t match.”
It seems likely that Gary has used injectables in his face, likely both Botox and fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Gary Shandling may have had some Botox in his face and forehead, as lines that were once present are no longer there. Other than that, I do not believe he had anything else performed.”
Hopefully Gary’s sense of humor hasn’t changed along with his appearance and Make Me Heal looks forward to seeing what he does next.
