With twins toddlers and a full-time gig on the TV series Desperate Housewives, you’d expect Marcia Cross to look tired, not preternaturally relaxed. But her relaxed expression may not be a result of thinking zen, but rather a result of plastic surgery.
Marcia looks great for a woman of 47, and clearly practices great skincare and stays clear of the sun to maintain her perfect complexion. But for a while Make Me Heal has suspected Marcia of going under the needle at the very least, and possibly even the knife, to stay looking fresh and young. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Marcia Cross’ plastic surgery).
The new season of Desperate Housewives just began and Marcia as perfect housewife Bree Hodge is looking more perfect than ever, likely a result of injectables like Botox around her eyes and forehead and possible fillers like Juvederm or Restylane around her mouth and in her lips.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Marcia Cross looks great. It appears she may have had some Botox as her face is completely line free. I do not see evidence of other work. She is a naturally beautiful woman and I would not change a thing. ”
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Marcia Cross is the poster child for Botox. She is a beautiful woman, but at times she can look somewhat “frozen”, especially in her forehead and glabella areas. It is apparent that skin care is extremely important to the television star. Anytime she is photographed outdoors she always covers her skin in long sleeves and large hats. Ms. Cross has said in interviews that she keeps her skin young and flawless by staying out of the sun’s harmful rays. I would agree with that, but think injectables, Botox, and a good skin care regimen also help her achieve the “flawless” look.”
Marcia’s Botoxed look isn’t bad, even if it is a bit frozen and while her lips may be plumped, she is not nearing the dreaded “trout pout” status of some of her peers.
New York plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Marcia Cross definitely looks Botoxed. She also appears to have a lip plumper. Neither one is bad – she looks nice.”
Make Me Heal looks forward to the new Desperate Housewives season and what mischief the women of Wisteria Lane get into this year.
