Model turned actress Paulina Porizkova has certainly had a very interesting life, from difficulty leaving her Czech homeland as a child to being fired as a judge on America’s Top Model. Now she has turned to blogging to voice her opinions, including those on plastic surgery.
45-year old Paulina Porizkova became an international sensation after posing for the famed swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated numerous times in the early 1980s.
On her blog at the Huffington Post, Paulina writes, “Let me state once and for all that I am not against plastic surgery. In many cases, it is something that can so vastly improve the quality of life it actually saves it. And even in the more frivolous cases, I do not have a problem with a woman who chooses a teensy bit of this or that to make herself feel better, as long as she admits to it. Nothing galls me as much as age-defying celebrities who achieve their looks by ‘healthy food and yoga.’ I know this is bullshit. You may not. But I can guarantee we will both feel bad about the way we look, the way we have let ourselves go, when Michelle Pfeiffer and Demi Moore look not a day over 30.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “I definitely agree with Supermodel Paulina Porizkova in that cosmetic surgery can improve quality of life. Looking great leads to feeling great which can positively impact your whole life. I’m sure Paulina maintains her beautiful supermodel looks with great skincare and botox and dermal fillers to fight off the wrinkles. She may have also had a Rhinoplasty giving her a defined tip to her nose.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Paulina Porizkova appears to have had Botox and facial fillers. It is possible she had rhinoplasty performed at one point in her life as well. Overall, her look is natural, and she would not benefit from any additional work at this time.”
Makemeheal.com admires Paulina’s outspokenness and hopes she helps to encourage more celebrities admit to having plastic surgery, even if it’s just a little Botox.
