With an upcoming role on Desperate Housewives, it looks like Melanie Griffith is returning to a more natural look, without the plastic surgery that has ostracized her from acting over the past few years.
54-year old Melanie Griffith has become more famous for being a victim of too much plastic surgery rather than being a Working Girl after undergoing numerous procedures including a rumored breast augmentation, liposuction, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), repeated lip augmentation and Botox injections, and a possible forehead lift and facelift (See Make Me Heal’s story on Melanie Griffith’s plastic surgery). Whether it was due to plastic surgery recovery after breast augmentation or a lack of roles, Melanie hasn’t been in many films the past few years.
Now as she prepares to hit the small screen, Melanie is looking better (more natural) than ever.
“Melanie looks great!” marveled celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.
“The Working Girl appears to have been working on looking more natural for her role in Desperate Housewives,” he quipped.
“Her face, although likely smoothed with injectable fillers like Restylane and laser treatments, looks less puffy than before,” explained the surgeon.
“I suspect she’s had some Botox to her forehead and had an upper eyelid lift, both of which have contributed to a refreshed, youthful appearance.”
“I think overall Melanie looks better than she has in years!” said Dr. Youn, adding that the next move for her should be to take out the implants from her lips.
Dr. David Shafer, celebrity plastic surgeon in New York City says, “Melanie Griffith looks great. She does not appear to need fillers. If her lips have an HA product in them, I would suggest melting it down a bit. Overall, continued skin care and maintenance therapy should serve her well.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Melanie Griffith does have a much more natural appearance these days. Her lips are not as full most likely the result of more conservative dermal filler treatments. For Melanie to continue her new natural look, less is more- less fillers, less Botox and fewer chemical peels.”
