Baseball legend Sammy Sosa’s ever changing appearance has led to frequent rumors of plastic surgery, rumors that have followed into retirement.
43-year old Sammy Sosa has been rumored to have Vitiligo, a skin condition in which there is a loss of color in the skin ever since his skin began becoming lighter and changing his appearance. Sammy is currently lighter than ever, which he has attributed to being the result of using a cream.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Sammy denies having vitiligo, a skin condition that lightens the pigment of skin, but he did confirm the use of a face cream and he would not provide the name. That “cream” seems to have had a very strong bleaching effect.”
Sammy’s appearance is so changed that some fans have suspected the legendary ball player of having had plastic surgery, although it seems unlikely and his color change is the reason he looks different than fans remember him from his playing days.
