In Hollywood it seems that everything comes around again. The most recent Hollywood redo is Melrose Place, the popular nighttime drama of the 1990s. With many of the original stars rumored to be appearing on the new version of the show, Make Me Heal wondered what plastic surgery the stars have had over the years to compete with their younger counterparts.
Since the original Melrose Place ended, 41-year old Laura Leighton has been filling her time by making appearances on various television shows and having her family. But the mother of two may also have had some Botox injections to keep her camera-ready.
New York plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “In comparing then and now pictures, Laura Leighton appears to have aged well. She has lost a little weight and retained her good looks. Her skin is smooth and as it was previously. However, she may have some Botox effect as well.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Laura Leighton looks just as great now as she did then. Part of this is due to her natural beauty, and it could partially be due to a few minor procedures. Her nose looks a bit narrower than it once was, and she may have had a tiny bit of Botox in the forehead as it looks quite smooth. Other than that I do not see anything that had work. “
Heather Locklear may be the most famous Melrose Place alum. But how far would the 48-year old have come without some plastic surgery?
In the past, Make Me Heal has reported that Heather has had various plastic surgeries over the years to help her stay young and relevant under Hollywood’s harsh lights. Heather is rumored to have had a breast augmentation as well as facial procedures including facial fillers and Botox injections. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Heather Locklear’s plastic surgery).
Dr Shafer says, “Heather Lockler is still beautiful. She appears to have slightly fuller lips and cheeks, which may be due to fillers. Her forehead appears higher than previously and eyebrows have changed shape. She may have the Botox effect or, possibly, a brow lift causing these changes.”
In addition, Heather may have also had more invasive work, like a facelift and/or necklift as well as lip augmentation.
OcBody.com plastic surgeon Dr John Di Saia says, “Heather Locklear has had facial work including probably a facelift , eyes, forehead lift and mid-face lift plus or minus cheek implants. A bit heavy on the lip filler but this is so common.”
Dr. Nassif says, “Heather’s lips appear a bit more puffy, she may have had a filler such as Restylane injected. She may have had some Botox around her face as well, as her smile almost looks like it is being stopped in its tracks. Other than that, I do not see any other work evident. Heather is always naturally beautiful and not necessarily in need of any intervention. “
50-year old Thomas Calabro is also returning to his character on the new Melrose Place, reprising his role as Dr. Michael Mancini. It seems the “doctor” may have paid a visit to one of his real-life counterparts for some Botox injections to make him look as young as handsome as his first time playing the character.
Dr Shafer says, “Thomas Calabro appears to have Botox effect on his forehead and between his brows. He also has a “comb forward” hair style which appears to be masking a receding hairline.”
Dr. Nassif says, “Thomas looks great, and I do not see the possibility of any work done. There is a chance he may have had some Botox, but it is unlikely. “
39-year old Josie Bissett looks as though she may be aging gracefully, without injections or invasive cosmetic surgery, although there have been rumors of a breast augmentation in her past.
Dr Shafer says, “Josie Bissett is aging gracefully. She does not appear to have any invasive plastic surgery. However, she looks just as beautiful now as she did back then.”
On the other hand, Josie may have had some upper face work as some photos seem to reveal a well-done forehead lift and possible eyelift and nose job as well.
Dr Di Saia says, “Josie Bisset may have had just her eyes and forehead lifted. Face is a bit wider. Nice.”
Dr. Nassif says, “Josie Bissett appears to have a narrower nose than she used to, almost appearing too narrow on the lower part of her bridge. She appears to have had some Botox in her face as well, possibly around the eyes and forehead. “
On the eve of turning 47, Daphne Zuniga is also rumored to be making an appearance on the new Melrose Place. Unlike her peers, she appears to be in need of a little help from plastic surgery, rather than havehttp:
Dr Shafer says, “Compared to many of the other celebrities, Daphne does not have a Botox effect. However, she would benefit from some targeted Botox Cosmetic in her forehead and around her eyes.”
Dr. Nassif says, “Daphne Zuniga appears to be aging beautifully. It is not apparent to me she has had anything done, possibly some Botox in the forehead but that is about it. “
Dr Di Saia says, “Daphne Zuniga has had little if any work. She could use a little skin care as she looks like the sun has been inflicting damage on her for years.”
It’s been a while since the old gang has been together and Make Me Heal hopes the plastic surgery makes all the drama as good as the first time around.
