It seems that each new season of Real Housewives of Orange County introduces a new case of bad plastic surgery. Last season’s award goes to the newest housewife, Lynne Curtin.
Although Lynne was vague about her age on the show, just saying she wanted to be young all the time, Internet searches have shown her to be 52. To stay young, Lynne openly admitted to using some fillers and was clearly a fitness freak, as her toned arms and body showed. She evaded openly stating her age, but was proud to share her wardrobe of revealing clothing with her two teenage daughters.
Lynne’s most obvious plastic surgery was her large bolted-on looking breasts. Although implants are practically required to be a Housewife, Lynne’s seemed extra fake looking, on top of her otherwise slim physique. Weight loss after implant placement can create the fake look, as can being placed on top of the muscle and not having enough breast tissue to cover the implants. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Lauri Waring’s plastic surgery).
Above the neck, Lynne also looks somewhat odd. Her neck shows her age, with its wrinkles and lines, but her face is almost preternaturally smooth, despite being tan. Lynne’s forehead wrinkles, and she has deep nasolabial folds (parentheses around the mouth), but her brow is uncreased, as is the area around her eyes that are subject to crow’s feet. Lynne may have had Botox used by someone not licensed to perform that procedure, or it may have had uneven results, giving her an uneven appearance. Her lips are also rather full, likely the result of fillers and their full shape contrasts sharply with her angular jaw.
When asked about Lynne’s plastic surgery procedures, Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Where do you start? As opposed to most people who look natural with plastic surgery, Lynn looks plastic with plastic surgery. From the pictures that I can find, her lips are too full, her Botox is uneven and her facial structure is too chiseled.”
On the other hand, Lynne may not have had anything done, other than some Botox and breast implants. Her odd appearance may just be the result of too much tanning, which ages the skin faster, contrary to Lynne’s belief that tanning keeps you looking young.
Facial plastic suregon Dr. Paul Nassif says, “She hasn’t had anything, except for too much sun. She looks sun-beaten.”
Fans of the show will recall Lynne spending a lot of time participating in outdoor activities as well as spray-tanning with her daughters, none of which is a healthy skincare regimen.
Lynne provided some great comic relief moments, possibly unintentionally, but it seems she needs to take care of her skin and face the way she takes care of her body if she really wants to look younger than she is.
