If you were a fan of Saved by the Bell back in the day, it seems you were not alone. Late Night’s new host Jimmy Fallon apparently is the show’s number 1 fan and has even put together a petition for a reunion. As the possibility of a reunion show begins to look more promising, Make Me Heal takes a look at the stars of the show and their possible plastic surgery.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar was the center of the show, and his role as Zack Morris made him a part of television history. Now 35, Mark-Paul looks eerily the same as he did when the show was at the height of popularity, leading many to believe he’s had plastic surgery, or dabbled in Botox at the very least. On the other hand, Mark-Paul could be all natural.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston says, “ I do not think that Mr. Gosselaar has had any plastic surgery procedures. He has been fortunate enough to maintain his natural good looks over the years and still looks very youthful. I believe he has maintained a good weight, diet and lifestyle to achieve this. In the future he might want to consider Botox for his forehead and crows feet.”
Mark-Paul made a recent appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show in full Zack Morris character, despite having a successful television career since Saved by the Bell ended. With his bleached blonde hair and tanned-looking skin, it seems that Mark-Paul has had Botox injections, giving him a smoothed forehead and arched eyebrows.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Mark-Paul Gosselaar has some normal signs of male facial aging such as a receding hairline and lower set brows. The possibility exists that he has had Botox to help make his forehead smooth. He also has on makeup in some of the photos which makes him look a little unnatural.”
New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Mark-Paul does not look like he has done any invasive plastic surgery. I suspect he has Botox on board since it forehead it much longer, brows are lower and the skin just as smooth as it was 15 years ago.
Zack’s long-time love interest on the show, Kelly Kapowski, played by the sexy Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, looks like she may have also gone under the knife.
At 35, Tiffani has only improved with time, and has enhanced her natural beauty with a possible breast augmentation and smoothed away the wrinkles of time with some Botox or a mini-browlift.
Dr. Walden says, “Tiffani Amber Thiessen looks like she has had breast augmentation and now has arched eyebrows and wide eyes, possibly from a mini browlift or Botox.”
Dr. Shafer says, “Tiffani likely has Botox treatments and possible cheek fillers. However, it is hard to tell if anything else has been done. “
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston says, “In my opinion Tiffani Amber Thiessen indeed had plastic surgery. Based on her photos is appears that she has undergone Breast Augmentation and Rhinoplasty. She could also be using filler such as Restylane and or Juvederm.”
Another member of the attractive cast is 36-year old Mario López. Mario is often rumored to have gone under the knife, but the muscle bound hunk who currently hosts entertainment shows and has been on Dancing with the Stars may owe his good looks to healthy living more than good plastic surgery.
Dr. David Shafer says, “Mario does not look like he has had any invasive plastic surgery. He obviously keeps in shape and it has done his body well.”
Dr. Walden says, “Mario Lopez is on DWTS. Many say he may have gone under the knife, however from comparing the before and after pictures, Mario seems to just be aging gracefully. He also may have lost some weight.”
Dr. Aston also noted Mario’s excellent physique, saying, “I think that Mario Lopez looks very good and is a fine example of what consistent good exercise and diet can lead to. His face has matured and when he lost some of his baby fat it reveled a nice high cheekbone. Mr. Lopez is a handsome man and I believe he is aging very well.”
Others members of the cast, including Showgirl Elizabeth Berkley may have also undergone plastic surgery.
After Saved by the Bell, 37-year old Elizabeth Berkley broke free of her role as feminist Jessie Spano by appearing in Showgirls, a role for which she may have undergone a breast augmentation. Elizabeth’s face has also taken on a very smooth appearance in recent years, indicating the user of dermal fillers and Botox and she has also been rumored to have had a nose job to help her break free of her Showgirls past.
Dr. Shafer says, “After viewing the pictures, I suspect that Elizabeth has had some nose work, but it is hard to tell for sure. In some views, her neck appears thinner as well, which may indicate some liposuction was performed. “
Dr. Aston says, “Elizabeth Berkley is beautiful woman and is aging very well. It is possible that she is using Botox and micro-dermabrasion to keep her face looking so good. It is also possible the she underwent Breast Augmentation Surgery based on her before and after photographs.”
Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle is now 36 and has never been quite as in the spotlight as during her Saved by the Bell days. Make Me Heal thinks the actress is aging nicely and without the benefit of plastic surgery.
Dr. Shafer says, “From the photos I have seen, it appears that Lark may have had alar base resection of her nose and has a touch of Botox. However, I would need to see more photos to tell for sure.”
According to Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., “It looks as though Lark may have had an ethnic rhinoplasty. If she did, it looks very natural.”
As for Dustin Diamond, who played the nerdy Screech on the series, he has likely not had plastic surgery, although he may have wanted to in order to prepare for his self-released sex tape. Dustin has also struggled with his weight as he is no longer the scrawny Screech, a fact he illustrated on a season of Celebrity Fit Club.
Dr. Shafer says, “Dustin does not look like he has had any invasive plastic surgery either. He also looks like he has Botox on board since his brows are low and spread laterally and his forehead is smooth. If he wants suggestions, he may benefit from a cosmetic rhinoplasty.”
Dr. Nassif says, “Most of the Saved by the Bell cast have not had any surgery or Botox.”
While Saved by the Bell wasn’t the best show ever, Make Me Heal looks forward to seeing the whole gang back together for a reunion for nostalgic reasons.
