Forever Young—Celebs Face Turning 70

One day we'll all be 70, right? I'm hoping it won't be a land of puppets...

No one is young forever but try telling that to Hollywood.

Celebrities facing 70 have two choices, and most of them are choosing to fight nature.

The outcome of that path is usually the same: A puppet-like face that hints at who you used to be, but mostly looks a little (or a lot) desperate.

Jaclyn Smith has just turned 70 but you would be hard-pressed to pin an age on her. She doesn't look young but she doesn't look her age. Keeping a girlish shag hairdo doesn't help.

According to Santa Monica dermatologist Dr. Ben Benham, founder of DermaDash, Smith clearly has had cheek fillers, to resemble her looks when younger.

Ray Liotta plastic surgery rumor mill has been in overdrive recently—what's the 61-year-old actor's changing look down to? Father time, or plastic surgeon?

The Ray Liotta plastic surgery rumor mill has been in overdrive recently.

The 61-year-old was displaying a distinctly different visage when he walked the red carpet at the SAG Awards back in January.

His face was decidedly tight and taut, his mouth Joker-like and his eyebrows were….. well….. a little Spock-ish?

So, what's Liotta's changing look down to?

Just good old fashioned Father Time, or over-zealous plastic surgeon?

Popdust spoke to Dr. Anthony Youn to get his expert opinion on the subject.

Ray Liotta plastic surgery or au natural?

Here's what the doc says:

Ray appears to have had at least a few trips to the plastic surgeon over the past decade or so. His upper eyelids are more open than they used to be, possibly signifying an upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty.
His jawline is tighter than it should be at his age, a possible sign of a previous face and neck lift.
And his mouth and smile lines appear to have been altered.
The corners of his mouth are elevated, almost with a 'joker-type' smile, and his smile lines appear blunted and almost nonexistent.
I suspect the appearance of his mouth and smile lines could be due to aggressive injections of a filler like Restylane.
Overall he looks very different than I would have expected him to look at this age!

If you would like to look better as you age—without any need for surgery or injections—check out Dr. Youn's book, The Age Fix.

Because, when a plastic surgeon tells you how to look younger without surgery, you know you've got to pay attention!

No Plastic Surgery For Me, Fibs Jennifer Connelly!

While his days on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are long gone, Paul Nassif is still a reality TV figure with his current success on E!’s Botched.

Jacked-up tummy tucks and lipo from third-world countries help make a Beverly Hills millionaire even richer, and we get to watch the transformations right from our living rooms!

Sure, Paul’s marriage to ex-wife Adrienne Maloof went down the tubes, but when you’re the ruler of rhinoplasty, what’s a failed marriage in the scheme of things? Money can buy this fella happiness, especially when you get to spend your days with the ever-charming Dr. Terry Dubrow looking at uniboobs.

Money Monday—How Much is Brody Jenner Really Worth?

So yes, Paul is raking it in, and here’s how.

First and foremost, Paul is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, and in a town like Beverly Hills, where the last time a brow furrowed, pigs flew to get their fat sucked out, a doc like Paul can earn hundreds of thousands daily.

Before his success on Botched, The Richest reminds us of Paul’s TV fame on the popular Dr. 90210. Along with that program, Celebrity Net Worth tells us of his other TV money-making appearances on NBC Nightly News, Inside Edition, Entertainment Tonight, the Today Show, and many more. A little advice from a well-respected nose job gent goes a long way… right to Paul’s bank account!

Money Monday—How Much Is Kris Jenner Really Worth?

While it’s chump change compared to the cost for one cosmetic procedure, Paul also made some loot from his time on RHOBH alongside his then-wife, Adrienne. But his Botched series is sure to last longer, considering the rise in plastic surgery and the thirst for 15 minutes of fame for those who sell their souls to appear on the train wreck of a show.

Celebrity Net Worth claims Paul Nassif is worth a respectable $14 mil! Nose jobs, nips, and snips sure fill a wallet with plenty of plastic… in the form of credit cards, that is.

 

charla nash's body rejecting face transplant —the bravery of this woman is absolutely awe inspiring

Chimp attack victim, Charla Nash’s body is rejecting the face transplant she was given back in 2011.

Nash underwent the groundbreaking surgery after she was viciously attacked in 2009 by Travis, a 200Lb chimpanzee that was owned by her employee.

As a result of the horrific attack, Nash lost both her hands, her nose, eyelids and lips.

The majority of the bones in her face were broken, and she a large portion of her scalp was ripped off.

She later had to have both her eyes removed too, due to a disease that was transmitted by Travis during the mauling.

Charla and Travis before the horrific attack

Nash’s reconstruction surgery was paid for by The Pentagon through its hand and face transplantation program.

She was given new facial features, taken from a deceased donor, and also underwent a double hand transplant.

Sadly, the hand transplant failed after her body rejected the tissue.

And now, Nash is back in hospital once again as her body has begun rejecting the face transplant too.

The 62-year-old had been taking an experimental drug treatment in hopes of weaning her off of the anti-rejection drugs she had been taking since her operation five years ago.

The anti-rejection drugs carry the risk of serious side effects—and their long term use has been linked to kidney damage, viral infections and cancer.

Nash says that doctors have now put her back on the original medication in hopes of reversing the rejection.

A spokesman for Brigham and Women's Hospital, where Nash is undergoing treatment, released a statement via their website yesterday:

The viability of Charla's face transplant is not in jeopardy. Overall, she is doing well.

Charla is currently experiencing a moderate rejection episode, which face transplant patients experience on occasion ...

We expect this rejection episode to be resolved within the coming week.

Nash, who is expected to be released from hospital later this week, also released a statement, via the AP:

I appreciate everyone's concern. I feel perfect.

I didn't even know I was having a rejection episode.

I gave it my all and know my participation in the study will still be beneficial.

I'd do it all over again, if I could.

The men and women serving our country are the true heroes.

I'm just happy I had the chance to help.

I wish I could have done more.

I believe in the power of prayer and appreciate everyone who is praying for me.

Nash opened up about the horrific ordeal she has undergone, during an interview back in 2009.

She told Oprah:

I'd like to put across to people's minds that these exotic animals are very dangerous and they shouldn't be around.

I don't want to remember [the specifics of the day she was attacked], because I couldn't imagine what it was like.

I want to get healthy. I don't want to wake up with nightmares.

[When I first woke up in the hospital following the attack] I do remember I kept saying that, 'Well, one of these days I'm going to see.'

And then the doctors said, 'No, you're never going to see again,' and I'm like: 'Well, I don't know. They don't know what they're talking about.

But the eye doctor came in a couple weeks ago and said that it's a shame they had to remove my eyes, and that's when I really knew.

She went on to explain why she chooses to wear a veil over her face when she is outside of her home:

[I wear it] so I don't scare people.

Sometimes other people might insult you, so I figure maybe it's easier if I just walk around covered up.

During the interview, Charla made the brave decision to show her face in public for the first time.

She explained why:

People are going to say what they're going to say.

I need to move forward and get better and stronger.

To say Charla's injuries are utterly horrific, would be a complete understatement.

The level of this woman's bravery is awe inspiring.

lil kim skin bleaching speculation and controversy

Lil' Kim continues to morph into a completely different looking person more and more by the day.

The plastic surgery has been evident for years—with the 40-year-old clearly having undergone a slew of procedures.

However, recent pics of the 40-(maybe 41)-year-old really set the interweb alight with Lil Kim skin bleaching speculation.

Because, the adorable, bronze-skinned diminutive rapper from Brooklyn now looks like…a LOT lighter skinned diminutive rapper from Brooklyn.

On Sunday, the rap icon posted a series of selfies showcasing her latest extreme make over.

So, what’s the happs?

Victoria Gaumer, RN, BSN, Clinical Nurse Aesthetician and founder of Botox By Victoria tells Popdust exclusively:

Wow! It really does appear that Lil’ Kim’s skin is much lighter.

On the Fitzpatrick Scale, which is used to grade skin color (1 being the lightest and 6 being darkest) she used to be classified as a 5/6 but in this picture she appears to be a 3!

This can often be achieved through the use of a topical skin lightener such as prescription strength Hydroquinone.

Hydroquinone blocks your skins melanocytes (the cells that produce brown pigmentation) from producing melanin (the brown pigmentation).

Hydroquinone has become popular in the past few years to help remove freckles, dark sun spots, and give the face an overall lighter appearance.

It is also commonly used as an anal bleaching agent to lighten the often darker colored anal skin.

It is possible that Lil’ Kim has added this to her skin regimen.

It's is also possible that she had a series of chemical peels and had generalized hypo pigmentation as a result.

One would need multiple peels to achieve this level of lightening and there is a major risk for splotchy, uneven hypo pigmented skin.

While some may speculate that her skin lightening can be attributed to a laser I believe it is highly unlikely.

Skin lasers such as IPL (intense pulse light) are excellent for skin types 1-4, but must be used with extreme caution or not used at all in skin types 5-6.

The darker the skin the more easily it will attract heat from the laser causing very traumatic burns.

Also the combination of lighter foundation, skin highlighter, and certain lighting could also make her skin appear lighter.

If she is using more aggressive methods such as peels, lightening cream, or a laser she is definitely putting herself at risk for unpredictable, uneven results and second degree burns.

And it looks like she took a page from the Kim Kardashian handbook of contouring.

Back in 2000, Lil’ Kim candidly told Newsweek:

All my life men have told me I wasn’t pretty enough—even the men I was dating...

It’s always been men putting me down just like my dad.

To this day when someone says I’m cute, I can’t see it. I don’t see it no matter what anybody says.

I have low self-esteem and I always have.

Guys always cheated on me with women who were European-looking.

You know, the long-hair type.

Really beautiful women that left me thinking, "How I can I compete with that?' Being a regular black girl wasn't good enough."

Journalist, Victoria Anderson, echoes that sad sentiment in a great article she wrote for The Conversation, called, Lil' Kim and the Unbearable Whiteness of Being.

However, Anderson explains that she found a different solution to "whitening herself up."

Instead, she learned how to embrace black is beautiful, and to shun the lie of black ugliness, black inferiority.

Rather than use make-up and plastic surgery to reconstruct a self-identity, I threw myself into books.

Chiefly anything by or about Malcolm X, or any of the Black Panthers – aged 15 I read Roots, all 700 pages of it.

When I was 16, a copy of Frantz Fanon’s 1952 classic Black Skin, White Masks was given to me by white school friends amused by my new militant stance and whose motives, I suspect, were slightly tongue-in-cheek.

Those books did for me what no amount of reconstructive surgery could have done.

Fanon, a psychiatrist from the French West Indies, wrote about the psychology of blackness as a legacy of colonization and white supremacy.

What all those books told me was that: this internalized self-image of black ugliness, black inferiority – it’s a lie.

And one that’s taken root inside, deep; like a particularly insidious form of brain cancer.
