  • As the Academy Award ceremony draws near, Make Me Heal is taking a look at the only two women of color nominated, both in the Best Supporting Actress category. Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson have both been nominated without the benefit of previous plastic surgery, but that doesn’t mean that their appearances can’t be improved in the future.

    43-year old Viola Davis has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Supporting actress category for her as Mrs. Miller in the film Doubt. Viola’s natural beauty was played down in the dramatic film, but Viola’s nearly flawless skin sparkles naturally off-screen, most likely without the aid of much plastic surgery.

    Viola Davis, Plastic Surgery

    Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden reports, “Viola Davis does not look like she has had any cosmetic procedure done. From the different array of pictures, the only physical attribute changing is her hairstyle. She may have used a medicated cream called hydroquinone to lighten her skin tone around her eyes just a bit, and give it that glowing look. Or this could simply be due to makeup shade around her eyes and cheeks, and the difference in lighting from photo to photo.”

    While Dr. Walden felt Viola’s look is natural, some of the other doctors Make Me Heal consulted thought they spotted conservative signs of plastic surgery on the actress, including a potential rhinoplasty and careful Botox injections to aid her smile.

    Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “I think Viola Davis might have had a conservative ethnic rhinoplasty. It almost looks like she has an implant in her dorsum and her tip looks thinner. Her nostrils are still too wide. It could be revised to give her a better-looking nose.”

    Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says, “She may have had a repair of her gummy smile.  This is commonly performed by using Botox or by dividing the elevators of her upper lip. By doing this, less of her upper gums are allowed to show.”

    38-year old Taraji P. Henson has been nominated for her role as Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The gorgeous actress has made it to the top without the aid of plastic surgery, although she could benefit from a little surface treatments to help her sparkle on the red carpet.

    Taraji Henson, Plastic Surgery

    Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston tells Make Me Heal that although Taraji is beautiful, she could benefit from a conservative nose job.

    Dr. Aston says, “Taraji P. Henson is a beautiful woman.  Although her nose is a little wide, it works for her face and it is not unattractive. However a carefully performed rhinoplasty could make it a little more elegant, I don’t think she has had any facial cosmetic surgery and she really doesn’t need it.  Some photos suggest a bit of breast fullness suggesting implants but I think she is all-natural from what I can see.”

    Dr. Nassif says that although Taraji likely hasn’t had any work in the past, she could benefit from a few minor procedures in time for the upcoming Oscar ceremony.

    He tells Make Me Heal, “I don’t think Taraji P. Henson has had anything done. Her eyebrows are naturally high, but she may want to think about adding a little filler in her smile lines. Also, a gentle IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment, or microdermabrasion can always help to refine and refresh her skin before she walks the red carpet.”

    Make Me Heal wishes both women of color the best of luck and looks forward to seeing them at the Academy Awards in a few weeks.

      This post was just silly. Viola Davis is speculation (look at the middle of her forehead- it’s the lighting). Taraji looks refined enough. Additionally not everyone is supposed to have a “refined” nose tip. Sometimes it just makes you look silly ESPECIALLY as an African American.

      You people are idiots and a discredit to the human race!!! The whole world doesn’t revolve around “refined” noses and keen or tiny features. Get over your damn selves. The majority of the globe do not naturally have these ridiculous features. Stop trying to pass your standards on the rest of the world. These beautiful women are refined enough in their God given natural beauty! And the stupid doctor’s comment borders on ignorance and racist.

      Many people of color of the world from Africa to Asia share the same beautiful “wide nose” and “full features.” Obviously America the melting pot has not convince you so do the rest of the world a favor, get a passport travel the world and educate yourself. Can’t believe 2009 and these comments are still made as if this is normal.

      Ms.Viola Davis & Ms. Taraji P Henson please don’t listen to these ignorant fools and don’t change. We sane people love you just the way you are….. and oh yeah congrats to both of you!

      How dare these stupid doctors use the term “refined” when describing narrow noses. This borders on racism. Most people of African and other ethnic backgrounds do not have these narrow-tipped noses, and there are many beauties represented in these ethnic groups. Shame on you!

      dr.aston SHUT UP!!!!!! she’s got no plastic surgery and you’re complaining and when she goes on to get one you’ll start to form ‘trained eye’. oh please and for Christ’s sake since when did nubians start to have a refined nose? its supposed to be broad you moron and if anyone has problem with it then they should take a spaceship to heaven and give God a serious tutorial on how to creat humans….. bunchof psychos!

      Taraji P. Henson has had a ton of surgery. you must be freakin blind if you think not. watch her appearance on “sister, sister” in 97 then see her in “baby boy” then in common’s video and then now. just put her name in google and see the first group of pics that come up, clearly she does not look the same at all and a woman of 27 doesnt just naturally change her appearance that much, puberty is long over with. just saw her on some talk show today, i think it was ellen and i didnt even recognize her, which is weird because ive always thought she was hot, i should have instantly recognized her.

      UNBELIEVEABLE. These two women are gorgeous, how dare you EVEN suggest they need refining or filling. This is one of the many reason why little brown and black girls think they are not attractive because people LIKE YOU want to consistently refine what is already PERFECT. God does not make mistakes!! You want them to look like the plastic faced masks of Hollywood. I question your judgement as medical doctors. I hope you never progress in this business!
