Meg Ryan turned 50 in 2011 and she is definitely among the candidates of worst plastic surgery in Hollywood.
Born on November 19, 1961, Meg had a passion for acting, which made her popular in minor roles in CBS Soap Operas of the 1980s.
The talent radiated in the 1989 romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally, which led to Meg Ryan‘s nomination for the Golden Globe award.
The movie was the start of a career that will put Meg among the top performing actresses in comedy and romantic films. Such was the acclaim that Time Critic Richard Corliss called her “the current soul of romantic comedy.”
Meg Before Plastic Surgery
Until 1996, Meg prevailed over Hollywood screens for almost a decade before she made a supposedly horrible decision to enter into the gloomy world of celebrity plastic surgery.
Here’s a video showing what she used to look like in her younger days.
In fact, critics of Meg claim that bad plastic surgery is the sole reason for the rapid decline of the actress.
Some critics are even bold enough to suggest that the only role that Meg will ever find is of a Joker in a Batman series.
Before & After Comparison…
The obvious change is lip implants that most experts think are due to GoreTex technique that enhances lip muscles. Another cheeky feature is the modified cheeks that seem to have undergone volumetric facelift (see facelift without cosmetic surgery) as a result of fat grafting.
Despite her age, it is also noticeable that Meg has no sagging skin making her susceptible of undergoing neck-lift and forehead procedures. It will not be an overstatement to suggest that Meg has not been able to hide anything at all.
Don’t Miss This Video Morph
The following video morph raises some interesting questions too. Signs of a plastic surgery disaster perhaps?
Critics point out to slanted and stretched back eyes that are seemingly pulled up.
The procedure on her eyes has a direct impact on her brows that are also pulled wide enough to make the actress look permanently surprised. Actually, the entire face of Meg is stretched indicating that there may be a lot of Botox involved.
Also, Meg Ryan was never famous for exposing her upper body but there are plenty of rumors of breast implantation. So far, Meg has not publicly claimed that she ever had a plastic surgery but there seem to be few media moguls willing to interview her.
Despite her amazing transformation, there are plenty of Meg Ryan fans who still love the actress for what she was.
Honestly, it appears that Meg has been under the knife so many times that few will take her word on plastic surgery.
Whatever the debate, it seems that Meg Ryan’s cosmetic surgery is a gloomy chapter out of Hollywood books marking the end of a career for another Hollywood great.
So it appears that Meg Ryan may have had plastic surgery.
In fact, critics of Meg insist that bad plastic surgery is the sole reason for her rapid decline. Some critics even dare to claim the only role Meg will ever portray is of a Joker in a "Batman" series. (Ouch!)
Judging by the before and after photos, there is a significant difference between Meg's present and past features.
The apparent change is lip implants that most experts consider are due to GoreTex technique that enhances lip muscles. Another cheeky feature is the modified cheeks that seem to have undergone volumetric facelift as a result of fat grafting.
According to celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn: "She appears to have had lip implants placed, most evident in her upper lip. Back in the late 90′s many plastic surgeons used Gore Tex implants to "permanently" enlarge the lips. I put "permanently" in parentheses because most patients had them eventually taken out. The problem I see with Gore Tex implants (and most lip implants in general) is that they are too firm to look like normal lip tissue.
This can cause the upper lip to look unnaturally stiff. In addition, it can also make the mouth look wider because the implant doesn't allow the lip to pucker normally. This result can be exaggerated with injectables like Restylane and Collagen, which surgeons use to enhance the borders of the lips.
Her lips do appear better now, possibly a result of removal of some or all of the implant, or maybe just due to laying off the additional lip injections. I like her the best before she appears to have had anything done."
Meg Ryan has likely had the implants removed and now uses collagen or Restylane, as her lips seem less large than previously, although they don't still appear natural at all.
Despite her age, you can easily notice that Meg has no sagging skin making her susceptible of undergoing neck-lift and forehead procedures. It will not be an overstatement to suggest that Meg Ryan has not been able to conceal anything at all.
The procedure on her eyes has a direct impact on her brows that are also pulled wide enough to make Meg Ryan seem permanently surprised. Actually, the entire face of Meg is stretched, an evidence there may be a lot of Botox involved.
Also, Meg Ryan was never popular for exposing her upper body but there are plenty of rumors of breast augmentation. So far, Meg has not publicly confirmed she ever had a plastic surgery but there are few media moguls willing to interview her.
Despite her dramatic (and completely unnecessary) transformation, there are plenty of Meg fans who still love the actress for what she was. To be honest, it looks like America's sweetheart Meg Ryan has gone under the knife so many times she is now nearly unrecognizable. Meg Ryan's plastic surgery is definitely not a successful one, marking the end of her career in Hollywood.
