Hollywood is rife with rumors about who’s going under the knife, so it was only a matter of time before middle aged actress Mary Louise Parker’s plastic surgery rumors took center stage. Parker, born August 2nd 1964, is the star of the Showtime original series Weeds and she’s been an acclaimed actress long before this.
She’s also a mother, with an adopted daughter and a son from a previous relationship. Given all of that, it seems that her face is still amazingly smooth and unlined, which has prompted rumors of celebrity plastic surgery.
Has She Had Cosmetic Surgery?
Television is traditionally a place for actresses that want to age gracefully without the assistance of a surgeon’s knife. But it is hard to argue with the notion that for a mother in her 40s Mary Louise Parker does have remarkably few wrinkles. Whether it’s around her eyes, her smile or frown lines, her face is smooth and youthful looking.
Of course, if you throw out clean living and lots of personal care as the only reason that Mary Louise Parker looks so good at her age, you’re left with a lot of plastic surgery options. For instance there is laser skin rejuvination, which can help maintain a youthful look and vitality with regular treatments.
There have also been those that have claimed she must be a fan of Botox, and it does appear that her face has the smooth, difficult to emote through veneer common to those that use Botox to remain wrinkle free and youthful.
But in the end, you have to weigh the claims against any sort of evidence that we can find about whether or not there has been cosmetic surgery.
Mary Before and After Cosmetic Enhancements?
When it comes to Mary Louise Parker, she has something of a unique case when it comes to plastic surgery rumors.
Mostly it’s most of what she’s accused of lies outside the realm of “traditional” plastic surgery. There’s no knife involved, no bandages or recuperation time. Other stars are also pretty tight-lipped about the cosmetic procedures – see Scarlett Johansson and also Jwoww).
Botox injections are about as non-invasive as you can get with cosmetic surgery, and there haven’t been accusations of rhinoplasty, face lifts or any more traditional cosmetic surgery procedures. On the other hand there also haven’t been confirmations from the actress herself.
When it comes to the procedures in question, you have to ask yourself if they even qualify as plastic surgery and then look for the signs. Botox injections tend to come with a smooth face, but also a difficulty moving the muscles of the face.
Laser treatments are very hard to detect, unless something goes wrong and the patient gets burned by them. And while people have pointed out that Parker does look even mor bright eyed now than when she was young, no one’s yet stepped forward with a copy of her medical chart to confirm the Mary Louise Parker plastic surgery.
Popular television show Weeds returned this week, although without twin Mary-Kate Olsen and her perfect nose job. The show’s star, Mary Louise Parker has had more than enough work done to satisfy Make Me Heal’s plastic surgery cravings.
Mary-Louise Parker, Botox, Plastic Surgery
The 43-year old actress recently adopted a daughter; she already had a son from a previous relationship. Many Weeds fans may notice, as Make Me Heal did, that for a middle-aged woman with two young children, Mary-Louise has remarkably few wrinkles.
We suspects that Mary-Louise is a fan of popular, multi-usage dermal fillers like Botox. Mary-Louise’s forehead is entirely smooth with no signs of horizontal creases. She also doesn’t have any vertical frown lines in her brows or crow’s feet around the eyes, only the gentlest crinkles when she smiles. Her eyebrows are also very arched and her cheeks very full. Also, her nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth) are not as deep as they usually are on a middle-aged woman. All this can be made possible by using various dermal fillers to plump up and de-wrinkle the skin. Her lips are also full, indicating a possible lip augmentation. As importantly, her skin texture and complexion is remarkably youthful, suggesting that Mary Louise basks in laser skin rejuvenation treatments such as CoolTouch, Active Fx, or Fraxel that help promote collagen growth and reduce lines and wrinkles. In fact, she might even look younger than she did when she first became noticed in 1991′s Fried Green Tomatoes.
In addition, Mary-Louise Parker’s nose has a very unusual tip. It could be naturally odd, or it could the result of a nose job. The tip looks the same, but her nose seems to have grown with her popularity, so she most likely had rhinoplasty to help give her a more defined faced.
