As a new judge on the hit reality competition television show American Idol Steven Tyler didn’t seem a likely replacement for the sour-faced Simon Cowell. But the rock god may have something in common with the judge everyone loved to hate: plastic surgery.
Through his run on American Idol, Simon Cowell (See Make Me Heal’s story on Simon Cowell’s Botox) admitted to getting regular injections of Botox, as well as dental veneers and fake tans. Now rumor has it that is replacement, Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler, may be following in his footsteps.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Steven Tyler may have had a facelift performed at one point in his life. In addition, he may have had Botox and facial fillers. Overall, any work was not overdone.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says, ” Have you watched American Idol lately? Is it me, or does Steven Tyler look like he’s had work done? I reviewed some before-and-after photos for the National Enquirer (printed in this week’s issue) and it appears to me that his face is plumped up and filled out. I bet he’s done more than listen to music to prepare for being an American Idol judge. It appears to me that he’s had substantial fillers injected under his eyes, in his cheeks, and in his frown lines. If I had to choose, I’d bet on Juvederm. It’s a soft, long-lasting filler that would be perfect for volumizing his face. And if it’s not overdone, then Dude Should Not Look Like A Lady.”
On the other hand, Steven’s wrinkles could look better now that he’s on camera with makeup, rather that on stage, sweating it off.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “I don’t think Steven Tyler has done anything cosmetically to his face. He has always had big full lips. They do not seem any larger than in the past.”
With or without plastic surgery, Steven Tyler’s appearance on American Idol doesn’t seem to be bothering fans.
