Actress Mackenzie Phillips recently regained her place in the spotlight thanks to her new memoir filled with sex, drugs, rock n’ roll, and incest. While in the spotlight, she has also taken the opportunity to debut her new plastic surgery look.
50 year old Mackenzie Phillips is best know for her famous parentage, John Phillips, lead singer of The Mamas & the Papas and his first wife Susan Adams. After working as an actress, most notably in the film American Graffiti, Mackenzie has popped up here and there on various television shows since her days on the soap opera One Day at a Time. Since the release of her book, High on Arrival, in which she alleges an incestuous affair with her father, Mackenzie has once again been in front of the camera on various talk and morning programs.
On her most recent appearance, on Good Morning America, Mackenzie revealed her new appearance, which she says cost $50,000 on Botox, Restylane, laser treatments on her face, dental veneers, and hair extensions. Mackenzie says her cosmetic surgery overhaul was part of her effort to “love herself from the inside out.”
Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, ” Any work Mackenzie Philips had was done conservatively. Her look has improved, and she does not appear overdone. She would not benefit from any other work at this time. ”
Indeed, Mackenzie doesn’t look all that different from her before pictures, which means the results of her procedures are subtle and well done. However, she could have gotten a little more bang for her buck with some more invasive procedures, including a facelift.
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “That’s a lot of money to spend on a temporary solution. She could have gotten a facelift for half of that, had much better results, and her results would last several years longer. The Botox, fillers and laser treatments did make an improvement; however there comes a point when they can only improve so much. When there is extra loose skin, none of those treatments can fix that.”
Mackenzie clearly has a lot of issues to work through after her drug filled life, but you’d never know it to look at her, thanks to her recent plastic surgery.
