If you hadn’t read the title and were just looking at the photo above, would you even know that was Marie Osmond? I wouldn’t. She looks like a totally different person. This is sad to me because Marie has gone through so much after her 18 year-old son committing suicide in early 2010. She did remarry her first husband in the spring of this year and seems to have some happiness in her life lately. She probably just wanted to freshen up her face a little bit and ended up looking like this.
For comparison, here’s what Marie looked like in June. She’s still totally fake and plastic-looking, but she hadn’t quite stepped over the line to freakish territory at that point. I think it’s the new lips (above) that put her over the edge.
Radar points out how different Marie looks now, and they interviewed a plastic surgeon speculating on what she’s had done. They also dug up some laughable quotes from her in which she’ll only cop to having skin resurfacing and using sunscreen. She’s had a whole facelift probably and it’s clear she’s injecting too much crap into her face now.
Marie Osmond’s ever-changing face has repeatedly sparked speculation that the entertainer has had plastic surgery, and her new super-tight look is adding fuel to the rumors.
When the 52-year-old former Dancing with the Stars contestant appeared at the 80th Anniversary of the Hollywood Christmas Parade on Sunday, she appeared more doll-like than the toys being donated for the holidays by the ‘Marine Toys For Tots’ charity she was supporting.
“Marie appears to have undergone a startling transformation,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn (who has not treated the star) told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.
“Her eyebrows are excessively arched, likely from Botox injections. Her lips resemble the classic ‘trout pout’ where the upper lip is excessively plumped in comparison to the lower lip,” he explained, adding that it may be from Juviderm injections.
When recently asked by Prevention magazine how she felt about plastic surgery, Marie coyly answered: “We cherish youth more than we do wisdom. Will I do it? I’m sure. Nobody wants to have a saggy jowl. Is it bad to do? I don’t think anything is bad if it makes you feel better.”
“I’ve had a HydraFacial, which is a non-laser skin resurfacing. I had a second procedure, which was done with infrared light; it tightens the skin and stimulates collagen to make your face look more toned. And I use a lot of sunscreen.”
However, our plastic surgery expert thinks her transformation is caused by something more aggressive than lasers, facials and sunscreen.
“The skin of her lower eyelids is smooth and wrinkle-free, possibly due to a lower eyelid lift, and her nasolabial folds (wrinkles from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth) are blunted, likely due to injections of Restylane,” revealed Dr. Youn.
“Finally, the skin of her face is pristine – it’s as smooth as a marble counter-top! I suspect she’s undergone laser treatments, such as the new Syneron eTwo laser,” he concluded.
I’ve said it countless times: there’s nothing wrong with getting some light work done. Just know when to stop! Don’t keep getting injections and don’t keep fixing stuff that doesn’t need to be fixed. I’m 38 and I’m thinking of doing a few things. It’s hard to accept that you’re getting older and you no longer look like the image of yourself that you have in your head. It’s just creepy and tragic when people end up looking like cartoon characters instead of humans, though. I hope that this settles for Marie and that she realizes it’s time to stop.
