Kim Basinger may no longer be a Hollywood staple, but that hasn’t stopped her from turning to Hollywood plastic surgeons on a search for eternal youth.
57-year old Kim Basinger has turned to plastic surgery in the past to maintain her Hollywood hottie status, undergoing a possible facelift and fillers to keep up her signature high cheekbones (See Make Me Heal’s story on Kim Basinger’s plastic surgery).
It looks like the paparazzi Kim caught with too many fillers or just after an injection and undergoing plastic surgery recovery, as her face was so swollen and full as to render Kim nearly unrecognizable.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn tells RadarOnline, “She doesn’t look anything like her usual self! I would say that she’s been overly plumped!”
The doctor, who has never treated Basinger continued, “She looks quite swollen, consistent with having had plastic surgery like an upper and lower eyelid life and/or facial plumping using fat injections. Her right eyelid also appears to be drooping, such as what can happen with overdone Botox.”
Dr. David Shafer, celebrity plastic surgeon in New York City says, ” Often after skin treatments and fillers, the patient can have temporary swelling for a day or two. In most cases, the swelling resolves quickly. However, if the patient demands too much product or the doctor in not conservative, then unnatural results can occur.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Kim Basinger’s swollen face appears to be a sign that she may have very recently had dermal fillers injected into her face- specifically her cheek areas. Slight swelling is normal and goes away after 1-2 days. If she had recently undergone a face lift she would most likely have some visible bruising as well.”
Once Kim’s swelling subsides, she will likely look much better and may learn her lesson that too many fillers at once is never good.
