Meg Ryan Plastic Surgery Rumors Wind Up Center Stage
Meg Ryan was a presenter at the Tony Awards this week, and her “new look” upset many viewers. The 54-year-old Ryan introduced a performance by the cast of “She Loves Me.” Twitter immediately exploded with criticism over her appearance and speculation about what kind of work she’d had done.
As a woman, I understand the social pressure to remain beautiful despite the aging process. But as a plastic surgeon, I did notice the dramatic and slightly overdone work that actually made Meg Ryan look older. Her cheeks and lips appeared to be overly filled, creating a stiff and heavy appearance, and her forehead was overly frozen, likely from Botox.
Injectable fillers like Juvederm and Botox can help maintain a youthful appearance, but I believe that the best plastic surgery procedure is the one that makes people look like a better, refreshed version of themselves, not like a different person. Especially for my actor and celebrity clients, I am extremely careful to make them natural-looking.
