The recent film The Wrestler was a big hit with critics and viewers alike, earning the two big names in the big picture, Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei, Oscar nominations. Make Me Heal takes a look back at the unlikely pair’s plastic surgery and also looks ahead to see what could be done to help their looks in the future.

Before becoming an actor, 52-year old Mickey Rourke was a boxer. Since changing careers, Mickey has also changed his face, becoming a notorious example of bad plastic surgery. In the past, Mickey has had several procedures, including at least one overly tight facelift, possible chin, cheek and lower lip implants and possible multiple nose jobs, in part to correct damage from his boxing past. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Mickey Rourke’s bad plastic surgery).
Although his appearance contrasts sharply with that of most handsome leading men, Mickey managed to perform well enough in The Wrestler to win a Golden Globe and be nominated for an Oscar in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role category.
To help improve his looks for his upcoming roles, including Iron Man 2, coming next year, Make Me Heal asked plastic surgeons how Mickey could best improve his botched plastic surgeries.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston says, “Mickey Rourke did a terrific job in The Wrestler. He should use some of his best wrestling holds on anyone who comes near him for any cosmetic procedure for the foreseeable future including injectables of all kinds.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “Obviously, Mickey Rourke looks as if he is overdone and stretched. He probably had cheek implants, face lift, brow lift, upper blepharoplasty and lip fillers, possibly something permanent.”
“It is difficult to reverse any of this, except to put in smaller cheek implants or remove and revise the facelift to change the vector of pull so that it’s not so surgical. However, the eyes and lips can’t be reversed.”
Make Me Heal congratulates both Mickey and Marisa on their nominations and looks forward to seeing the beauty and the beast at the Oscars ceremony next month.
