Even celebrities cannot escape the aging process! They, too, have the same struggles we have when it comes to stopping the hands of time. Some age better than others, of course. Here are a few examples of the aging process as it pertains to the faces we know and love from the big screen, and what we would recommend if they decided they needed a little additional “help”.
Meryl Streep has aged quite well, and is definitely a natural beauty, but if she came to us for a consult we might recommend a balanced Blepharoplasty.
Robert Redford has aged well but has a lighter skin type more prone to sun damage, wrinkles, and discoloration. If he wished to address his sun damage we would recommend laser skin resurfacing.
Morgan Freeman has aged well, and would likely not need any type of cosmetic procedures unless he wanted to help the lines on his forehead with Botox. Darker skin is less prone to sun damage and the resultant loss of elasticity and associated aging changes.
Raquel Welch has aged very well. Good skin, youthful fullness, soft tissues, good lid and brow position, and likely good genetics! If she has had any procedures, they have done a great job as she doesn’t look overdone.
Brigitte Bardot shows the classic signs of aging. Gravity works over time on a thinner, drier, less elastic skin. Seen are jowls, neck banding, low lid fat and laxity, skin aged by sun. If seen as a consult we would recommend a Facelift, balanced Blepharoplasty, and Laser Skin Resurfacing.
Claudia Cardinale shows loss of volume in the lower mid-face, laxity of the jowls and neck with fat accumulation in the neck. If she consulted we would recommend Liposuction or Sculpture of the neck, Facelift, and Laser Skin Resurfacing.
