The eagerly awaited Sex & the City movie, based on the popular television series is finally hitting theaters this week. Rumor has it that the film takes place a few years after the series ended, leading Make Me Heal to wonder what the actresses have done by way of plastic surgery to maintain their good looks.
Make Me Heal has previously reported on Sarah Jessica Parker’s potential nose job (read the full story on Sarah Jessica Parker’s nose job) after we noticed that her nose doesn’t seem nearly as bulbous as it did when the 43-year old actress began her career. plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif believes “As compared to a photo where she’s a lot younger, it does appear that Sarah Jessica Parker’s nose is a lot thinner now. It appears that her nostrils have been reduced and, as well as her tip, and her complete nasal width has been narrowed. Her nose looks natural at this point, and overall her rhinoplasty appears to look very good on her.” However, as the actress has grown into her fashionista self, it is also possible that skills with flattering make-up have helped reduce the prominence of her nose through make up alone.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn was not sure about Sarah Jessica Parker’s rhinoplasty, saying “This is a tough one. It looks like she may have had a rhinoplasty to thin her nose and make it more elegant, but when I’ve seen her over the last few years, her nose is pretty prominent. It is too ‘normal’ looking to be a nice rhinoplasty result. There is a bulbous tip and a bump on the nose which would not likely be left after a good rhinoplasty.”
Mr. Big, played by 53-year old Chris Noth is the man in SJP’s Carrie Bradshaw’s life. Their off-screen lives of the actors may also be intertwined as well, as it seems that, like SJP, Chris has also had a rhinoplasty. Before his nose job, his nose was a little on the big side and it is now much narrower, from bridge to tip. His nostrils have a much more pinched look, whereas before they used to be round. Make Me Heal thinks a lower blepharoplasty should be his next move, as Chris is carrying some big bags under his eyes, which make him look old and sickly.
The other blonde female on the series, Kim Cattrall, has said she doesn’t want plastic surgery, but has openly admitted to having Botox injections to combat signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. She was quoted as saying, “I feel fortunate that those aids are out there, but go easy on it. Less is more. I don’t want to look 20, or even 30. I’m happy to look middle 40s for as long as I can.” In the past, 51-year old Kim has also said she is frightened of plastic surgery asking, “Why would anyone lower themselves to look like an alien? I’m scared of surgery because I don’t want to look in the mirror and not recognize who’s looking back. I don’t want to be in a room, and to have people turn when I leave and say, ‘What happened?’” Although Kim has said that Botox is pretty much the extent of her cosmetic surgery, Make Me Heal believes that Cattrall has probably resorted to non-invasive laser procedures such as CoolTouch, Fraxel or ActiveFx or the radio frequency facial rejuvenation procedure Thermage. Cattrall probably also sampled other injections such as Restylane and Juvederm. Considering that Kim Cattrall is dating a 28 year old man at the moment, we would not be surprised to see Kim having a mini-facelift and some minimally invasive plastic surgeries. With or without plastic surgery, Cattrall looks phenomenal and we think that her dating a younger man is a refreshing change. See Make Me Heal’s complete story on Kim Cattrall’s plastic surgery.
The only brunette of the Sex & the City foursome, Kristen Davis, has said that she will never undergo plastic surgery, fearing she will lose her unique looks by going under the knife. The 43-year old actress is quoted as saying, “If I could do it and look just like myself, I would do it. But I don’t think it works that way. You can’t go back. That’s what scares me. I don’t want to look better, but different.” Although Kristen doesn’t look her age yet, she may yet to decide to follow in the footsteps of her older costar, Kim Cattrall and get injectable fillers like Botox to combat signs of aging, which do not risk altering her unique appearance. She may also consider non-invasive laser treatments such as Fraxel or ActiveFx because they only improve the appearance of the skin, without altering one’s look in the way a poorly executed plastic surgery can.
The youngest cast member, at 42, Cynthia Nixon appears to be entirely untouched by plastic surgery. She recently admitted to have successfully battled breast cancer and looks none the worse for the wear. The most Make Me Heal can say is that the natural blonde looks a lot more stunning as the redheaded Miranda that made Cynthia famous. But Make Me Heal does suggest that she might want to start using non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments to help with the signs of aging around her eyes and mouth that she is starting to experience.
