In the ever-changing world of reality TV, not much has changed on one of the genre’s most-watched shows, American Idol. That is until kooky and warm-hearted judge Paula Abdul departed from the show. While fans may be frowning, Make Me Heal thinks Paula is looking better than ever, thanks to some plastic surgery.
At 47, Paula has already worn many different hats, as a dancer, choreographer, pop star, designer and most recently America’s most beloved judge on American Idol. Now that Paul has departed AI, it seems that she as she moves on to bigger and brighter things, she has also brightened up her appearance.
Paula is likely using injections like Botox to keep her eyebrows at their peaks. She likely also uses fillers like Juvederm or Restylane in the lines to keep her face looking full of youth.
On his blog, plastic surgery Dr. Anthony Youn reveals, “Paula may have had some work done in the past. I see two major plastic surgery possibilities. First, her nose looks thinner and shorter, possibly due to a rhinoplasty. Second, her eyebrows appear to have that arched ‘Botox Brow’ look.”
New York plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “In the most recent photo of Paula Abdul, she does have low medial brows and peaked lateral brows which would make one suspect Botox Cosmetic use. However, the photo also looks airbrushed or photoshopped, so it is hard to tell what is real and what is not.”
Paula may also have had a browlift to help enhance her youthful appearance and keep her eyes from looking tired.
Plastic surgeon Dr Sherrell J Aston says, “I believe that Paula still looks great and is aging very well. I suspect that she has had regular Botox and fillers like Restylane or Juvederm to maintain her looks. It is also possible that she has recently undergone a Brow lift as her upper face looks raised and wrinkle free. Ms. Abdul also maintains a healthy weight and exercise regimen, which is beneficial to staying and looking young. I wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Paula is no stranger to plastic surgery. In the past, she has been rumored to have had a nose job and breast augmentation. (Read Make Me Heal’s story on Paula Abdul’s plastic surgery).
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “She appears to have undergone rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping), Botox, facial fillers, and breast augmentation.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery says, “Paula’s eyebrows have the arched botox brow appearance. There doesn’t seem to be any more major nose work but her cheeks are thinner and her jawline smoother. Although she may have had injectibles here, it’s more likely she’s had either a lift or lipo.”
Paula is looking better than ever and Make Me Heal looks forward to whatever she does next.
