The rumors have been flying about Valerie Bertinelli having plastic surgery on her face. This actress, now near 50 years of age, has recently lost a great deal of weight. Valerie has gone through her weight loss process with the help of Jenny Craig, and dropping the pounds has certainly changed her look. Many of her fans believe she has also decided to go under the knife to help fight the signs of aging. Could the rumors be true?
While Valerie has suspiciously few wrinkles and fine lines for a woman of her age, she also doesn’t seem to have many of the telltale signs of cosmetic surgery either. Many women who use facial filler injections like Restylane, Juvederm, and the ever-popular Botox have obvious signs such as the texture of the skin, facial features which appear frozen, and overly plump cheeks. So far, Valerie simply appears to be aging well based on the absence of these characteristics.
According to Dr. Paul S. Nassif, plastic surgeon, this actress appears to simply have great genetics. He adds that if she has used surgical procedures, or injectable fillers, that they have been done extremely well so as not to appear obvious. A great skincare routine can go a long way, and combined with her weight loss she may simply be showing a healthy glow.
If you ask Dr. Sherrell J. Aston, Valerie could benefit greatly from a blepharoplasty, or eye-lift, to keep her eyes looking wide and fresh. She might also want to consider a breast lift, which would help to boost her bust on her new, thinner frame.
What do you think, did Valerie have cosmetic work done to her face, or are her results from good old-fashioned diet, skincare, and exercise? Check out her before and after photos to decide for yourself!
