Meg Ryan used to be America’s sweetheart, but her transformation with plastic surgery has moved her from the top of the list. Now it seems that Meg may have learned her lessons and stopped having the lip augmentations that gave her a bizarre appearance.
48-year old Meg Ryan began getting plastic surgery in her mid 40s and began spending less time on screen. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Meg Ryan’s plastic surgery). Meg’s large lips were assumed to be the result of a permanent filler because of the stretched out shape. But recent photos reveal Meg’s lips are back to a more natural state, so she must have laid off the lip fillers.
While Meg’s lips are back to normal, she still looks somewhat odd, which may be the result of fat grafting, as in a volumetric facelift, like Madonna’s. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Madonna’s facelift), which was likely combined with some other tightening procedures, like a forehead lift or necklift, as Meg has no sagging skin.
Board certified New York dermatologist Dr Judith Hellman says, “Meg Ryan…well, she used to be America’s sweetheart and simply said, she has grown up! No lip augmentation in this picture, but she looks somehow oddly assymetrical. I couldn’t even start venturing as to what she may have had done to get that look, or is it just a really unflattering photo. I am not crazy about her dress either in the full body picture, but that is personal taste. She somehow looks stuck with this little girl image from the 70′s-80′s! She could look more chic and 21st century with a little help from a professional advisor!”
Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Meg Ryan looks great. She does have a slight Botox look to her forehead and glabella. She would benefit from some dermal filler in her glabella to reduce the appearance of her static lines.”
New York plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Meg Ryan may have backed off of injecting her lips as they seem deflated compared to past photos. At least she used temporary fillers and isn’t stuck with the distorted, enlarged lips that permanent soft tissue fillers can give.”
In addition to fillers, Meg may also have gotten a nose job, which makes the rest of her face look even bigger, thanks to its small appearance. For her very smooth skin, she may use Botox in her forehead, in addition to chemical peels and laser treatments.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Meg Ryan’s lips look more natural and more proportionate to the rest of her face since she cut back or stopped injecting her lips with fillers. What doesn’t look natural to me is her nose. She must have had a Rhinoplasty. She has a small nose but a very bulbous tip. It also looks like she may have injected some fillers around her nose possibly to fill in wrinkles or to alter the shape. Her perfectly smooth forehead is indicative of Botox and chemical peels.”
According to Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., “Meg Ryan had her nose worked on at some point, as it appears overdone. She also appears to have had a facelift, cheek implants, and a brow lift. As this point, it would be best for her to refrain from any additional procedures, as they would only create more of an artificial look.”
If Meg Ryan has given up lip fillers, she may be back on track to being one America’s favorite actresses.
