Nicole Kidman was spotted at the Cannes Film Festival on May 14 to promote her new film ‘Grace Of Monaco,’ however’ she surprised us all with her puffy yet frozen face. We have the inside scoop from doctors that told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what they think actually happened! Read more about Nicole’s new look below.
It looks like 46-year-old Nicole Kidman has gotten some work done on her face — and not the best work, either. She appeared at the Cannes Film Festival with a puffy face and some swelling. We spoke to six doctors, who revealed their thoughts on Nicole’s face, saying that she has gone overboard with Botox and fillers. See what they said below.
Nicole Kidman’s Plastic Surgery — Doctors Speak About Puffy Face At Cannes Film Festival
Aging can hit people very hard. Some people don’t want to let go of their youth and options such as Botox and fillers can help fix those problems, however, it looks like things can go wrong very easily, as we see with Nicole’s recent appearance at the Cannes Film Festival on May 14.
DailyMail revealed that in 2013, Nicole actually announced that she was “completely natural, saying she only once dabbled in Botox,” however that doesn’t seem right, as she was seen at the Film Festival with a puffy face and some facial swelling. Her face looked very tense and her eyes were different sizes.
Doctors EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com that they all believe that Nicole has undergone a lot of Botox and fillers. Note: none of these doctors have treated Nicole Kidman.
Dr. Yael Halaas, M.D., F.A.C.S., Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, who practices in New York City, revealed that, “Nicole’s smooth brow could be due to overuse of Botox. The puffiness in her face could be caused by filler such as Restylane or Juvederm to her smile lines, as well as cheeks. These fillers could also be used for the lips, but it may be the red lipstick that is making her lips look fuller.”
Dr. Marcelo Ghersi, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Florida, said that: “These recent pictures are a huge departure, giving her face that “chipmunk cheek” look that we have seen with far too many celebrities. Most likely Nicole has had Juvaderm injected into her cheeks to achieve this look. The reason celebrities (and other woman) do this at a certain age is that they fear hollowing of their face. However, when they go too far with injectables to “pump it up,” instead of looking youthful, they look heavy and unnatural in the face.”
Nicole Kidman’s Face — Smaller Eyes & Bigger Cheeks
If you see, Nicole’s eyes look way smaller and her cheeks look bigger.
Dr. Lee Ann M. Klausner, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, actually said that: “Facial filler can be used to add volume and lift to the cheeks and add volume to the temples but, if too much is placed, it can also make the eyes appear smaller, less open and less attractive. Some facial fillers absorb more water than others and can contribute to a puffier unnatural appearance to the face.”
Dr. Jason Altman, who is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Miami, said, “It appears as though Nicole has had facial fillers placed in the cheek area” and added: “If you look just above and behind the fullness in the cheek you will notice a deep hollow. This hollow or depression is exaggerating the overfilled look of the cheek area and contributing to the “unnatural appearance.” There is also a hollow just below the eyelid in what we call the tear trough area — a difficult area to treat, but the lack of fill here is also contributing to the exaggerated appearance of the cheeks.”
Nicole Kidman’s ‘Work’ — Her Doctor Went Too Far
They all explain that Nicole definitely went through a lot of work and it didn’t come out the way it should’ve.
Dr. Payman Simoni, who is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills, Calif. told HollywoodLife.com, “It seems that her physician went overboard with fillers. By adding too much fillers to the cheeks and under the eyes, her eyes got smaller. Nicole’s eyes seem to be more slanted as result of too much filler, which is not attractive.”
Dr. Bruce Katz, of Juva Skin & Laser Center in New York, agreed: “The filler makes it looks like her cheeks are falling. There is a slight indent under her right eyelid, that’s where the filler should be and it makes her look older. There is also an indentation on right laugh line — clearly the Botox is done poorly because her left eye and upper eyebrow is drooping and her eye is almost closing.”
The Price Of Botox & Fillers
It’s not cheap to get work done on your face! Although we know Nicole definitely has the money for it, it didn’t come out great.
Dr. Halaas revealed that, “The cost varies, but on average a syringe of filler is about $800 and an area of Botox could cost around $375. Of course, the more a person has the more the cost would be.”
Dr. Simono said, “Her Botox probably probably costs something around $1,000 and fillers would be something around $3,000. But the real cost is smaller eyes, droopy eyelids, and over blown cheeks.”
Dr. Altman also said, “Fillers are usually performed in the office setting, with prices ranging from $750 – $1,250 per syringe, depending on the product. It appears that Nicole has had more than a single syringe.”
Wow. It’s a lot of money to achieve all of this work and we definitely think Nicole didn’t get her money’s worth.
Again: these are expert opinions from doctors who have not treated Nicole.
