Every year, Make Me Heal looks forward to the Academy Awards because at no other time does so much plastic surgery appear in one place at one time.
Hosted by Hugh Jackman, the ceremonies kicked off with the Tony-award winner performing a clever song and dance routine that was entirely free of plastic surgery, but that doesn’t mean some nips and tucks in the future wouldn’t help the Sexiest Man Alive be even sexier.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrel J. Aston says, “Hugh Jackman is 40 years old and looks great. He is People magazine’s choice as The Sexiest Man Alive and he earned this distinction all on his own.”
“His upper eyelids are a little heavy, he has prominent nasolabial folds and his nose is a little long. All these could be changed but he has no reason to do it at this point. In the future he may want to consider having these areas corrected in a very subtle way.”
Sean Penn won the Oscar for Best Actor in the biopic Milk. Although his large nose has never seen a plastic surgeon’s blade, many of the nominees in his category were more than familiar with the inside of a plastic surgeon’s office, including Brad Pitt, who recently underwent laser treatments to refresh his appearance. Dr. Jennifer Walden, said “ it appears to me that Brad may have had some sort of facial resurfacing procedure like a chemical peel or laser with minimal downtime given that his skin looks smoother and more evenly textured, and possibly even soft tissue fillers.” See Make Make Me Heal’s story on Brad Pitt’s plastic surgery.

The Oscar for Best Supporting Actor was posthumously awarded to Heath Ledger for his role in The Dark Knight. Most of the actors nominated in this category hadn’t had any plastic surgery, but could universally benefit from some careful eyework, including Josh Brolin, Robert Downey Jr. and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Kate Winslet was the Oscar winner for Best Actress in The Reader. Whether or not the British beauty has been under the knife seems to be a matter of opinion. See Make Me Heal’s story on Kate Winslet’s plastic surgery. Other actresses in her category, including Anglelina Jolie, have definitely had plastic surgery to improve their looks. Angelina notoriously had a nose job early in her career, See Make Me Heal’s story on Angelina Jolie’s plastic surgery. Other actresses in the category, like Melissa Leo (See Make Me Heal’s story on Melissa Leo’s plastic surgery) and Anne Hathaway (See Make Me Heal’s story on Anne Hathaway’s plastic surgery) don’t appear to have had cosmetic surgery.

Penelope Cruz won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The Spanish beauty has previously undergone some minor plastic surgery improvements, including lip injections, while more invasive plastic surgery procedures, including a nose job remain hard to determine. Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “Some photos that show the front of Ms. Cruz’s nose are consistent with having had a rhinoplasty. Her tip cartilage looks like it might have a parenthesis look from the way the cartilage was excised.” See Make Me Heal’s story on Penelope Cruz’ plastic surgery. Penelope’s fellow nominees in the category, including Amy Adams, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis and Marissa Tomei also had minimal procedures, see Make Me Heal’s story on the Best Supporting Actress nominees.
Best Picture went to Slumdog Millionaire, the small film that got really big. The stars are not well-known in the United States and some of the smaller roles were filled by locals living in the film’s location of Mumbai. As the careers of the star grows, so may their interest in plastic surgery and Make Me Heal intends to be the first to report on any changes in the stars’ appearances.
Although they weren’t nominated for their work, Make Me Heal spotted several plastic surgeries walking the red carpet.
Jennifer Grey and her notoriously bad nose job appeared in a curve-hugging Dolce & Gabbana gown. Since the nose job that rendered her nearly unrecognizable, the 48-year old Dirty Dancing actress seems to have been under the knife a few more times to tighten up with a facelift and facial fillers to keep her looking preternaturally young.
Another plastic surgery fan was Jessica Biel, who appeared in Prada. The 26-year old seems to have had a nose job and lip injections to keep her looking hot to trot down red carpets everywhere. See Make Me Heal’s story on Jessica Biel’s plastic surgery.
Although they didn’t win, power couple doubly nominated Brangelina appeared looking better than ever. Brad took care of the ugly mustache issue by adding more facial hair to his Juvederm-ed face, while Angelina accented her possible cheek implants and nose job with colorful dangling earrings. See Make Heal’s story on Brad Pitt’s plastic surgery and Make Me Heal’s story on Angelina Jolie’s plastic surgery.
Another favorite couple, especially among the tween set, that made an appearance on the red carpet and even presented awards, was Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron. The High School Musical stars, 20 and 21, respectively, have both been rumored to have plastic surgery: a nose job for him and a breast augmentation for her. See Make Me Heal’s story on Vanessa Hudgen’s breast augmentation and Make Me Heal’s story on Zac Efron’s nose job.
The Oscars were an elegant display of fashion and plastic surgery at their best and worst and Make Me Heal congratulates all the winners on a job well done.
