Has Indiana Jones Returned with Plastic Surgery?

The following article is reprinted from Make Me Heal 's Celebrity Plastic Surgery News. The article, along with photos can be found at the following link: Has Indiana Jones Returned with Plastic Surgery?.

It has been almost twenty years since Indiana Jones and his crew took on the big screen. With a new movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, hitting theatres this week, Make Me Heal decided to see whether or not any of the old and new cast members had undergone plastic surgery in the meanwhile.

Harrison Ford’s adventuring archaeologist alter-ego Indiana Jones is known for his rugged good looks. Make Me Heal thinks that Harrison has preserved his rugged good looks the natural way although his skin and muscles are starting to loosen, so he might want to consider tightening up for his next movie role. Plastic surgeons, Dr. John Di Saia and Dr. Paul Nassif agree with our assessment saying that he most likely hasn’t had any plastic surgery, but is beginning to look his age and would benefit from a turn at the scalpel. Make Me Heal thinks that if 65-year old Harrison continues to date much younger actress 43-year old Calista Flockhart and her possibly augmented lips, he will continue to look old enough to be her father without some plastic surgery procedures, like a facelift for the jowls along his jawline and crepey neck, a blepharoplasty to remove the pockets of fat under his eyes and the hooding over the top of his eyes, and some Botox, Restylane or Juvederm to iron out some of the tapestry of deep furrows on his forehead, nasolabial folds, and crows feet.

Harrison Ford seems like he subscribes to the old school philosophy of fellow actors Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro whose acting chops are as youthful as ever, but who insist on aging gracefully and will likely never have plastic surgery. Harrison and the above-named celebrities are iconic actors whose unique, trademark looks could be affected by going under the knife, as if they end up looking different post-surgery despite the results being aesthetically great, this could ruin their careers. This is probably why actors like Harrison are less inclined to want to mess with their career-making faces. But even if Harrison does not want to risk altering his look with an invasive procedure, there are low-downtime laser treatments (i.e. Fraxel, Palomar’s Starluxe, CoolTouch, and Active Fx) that can improve the texture of his skin without putting him at risk of looking different. The same goes for temporary dermal fillers like Botox or Restylane, which will not change Harrison’s look in the bit, but relax some of his wrinkles.

Fans of the original Indiana Jones adventure have been looking forward to seeing actress Karen Allen reprise her role as the feisty Marion Ravenwood. Although Karen hasn’t been seen in much, she remains a legend in her own right. But Make Me Heal suspects that between movies, Allen has had plastic surgery in the form a nose job and plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif agrees, saying Allen’s “pinched nose is indicative of a bad rhinoplasty.” Make Me Heal is looking forward to Allen’s appearance in the film, but does wish she hadn’t messed with her nose as it looked fine before and now looks overdone.

The femme fatale in the new movie will be played by the 39-year old, Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett, who has repeatedly been firm on her anti-plastic surgery stance, saying that she would not undergo plastic surgery.

“I see someone’s face, someone’s body who has had children, and I think they’re the song lines of your experience, and why would you want to eradicate that?”, says Blanchett. As plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn reported at Cate’s Oscar appearance, “She has been blessed with great genes, which have caused the 37 year old actress to age very gracefully.” But don’t be fooled by Cate’s stance on plastic surgery, as she most likely has had some sort of help in looking so good, including laser treatments and peels.

“Her skin is nearly flawless, and may be aided by top-of-the-line skin care products, chemical peels, and lunchtime laser treatments,” says Youn.

Finally, it comes with no surprise that the 21-year old Shia LeBeouf has not gotten any plastic surgery, although it’s quite likely that his current girlfriend, model Lauren Hastings may have gotten a nose job or will be getting a boob job.

Along with the rest of the action adventure movie loving fans, Make Me Heal looks forward to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, hitting theaters this week and spotting old and new members of the cast.

Cate Blanchett Speaks Out Against Teen Plastic Surgery

The following article is reprinted from Make Me Heal 's Celebrity Plastic Surgery News. The article, along with photos can be found at the following link: Cate Blanchett Speaks Out Against Teen Plastic Surgery.

Cate Blanchett, Skin, Plastic Surgery
Academy Award winning actress Cate Blanchett believes that parents should not allow their young children to get plastic surgery despite the pressure these children, namely girls, may feel to change their bodies according to media standards. The Australian actress confesses her relief that she is the mother of two boys (Dashiell, 5, and Roman, 3) and will not have to worry about this body-image pressure affecting her children as much as she may if she had a daughter.

Blanchett says, “It’s a big difference women in their 60s or 70s finally deciding to get their eyes done. Who knows what you’re going to think? But when you’ve got an 18-year-old daughter who says ‘Mummy can I get a boob job?’ and you go ‘Sure honey’.”

“I mean their bodies haven’t even finished evolving. The fact that you’ve got a magazine, you know all these magazines for teenage girls about consuming and they’re so fragile. I’ve got sons. I don’t know what I’d do if I had a daughter.”


Blanchett believes that media pressure is to blame for the increase in popularity of cosmetic surgery, and for the younger age of those who seek it. Speaking about the trend of younger patients getting dermal injections to enhance lips or erase fine lines, Blanchett says “It’s not just women on film, 18-year-old girls feel the pressure to do preventative injecting.”

Blanchett joins a growing number of people who are speaking out against the trend of plastic surgery among teens. While the number of teen plastic surgery patients is small relative to the entire population of adults having cosmetic surgery, teen cosmetic surgery has been growing quickly. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 94,000 teenagers, ages 19 and under, had some kind of cosmetic surgery procedure in 2006 compared to 1996, where about 11,500 cosmetic surgeries were performed on patients 18 and under. In 2002, the number of teen plastic surgeries had surged to nearly 81,000. The most common cosmetic procedures performed by teens are nose jobs, breast implants and lift, male breast reductions (gynecomastia), and liposuction. When it comes to boys, a whopping 70 percent of the total number of male breast reductions performed in the US are done by adolescent boys.

Blanchett is not only against plastic surgery when it comes to teens, but also thinks that plastic surgery should be avoided by adults. Blanchett believes that aging gracefully is a part of life and represents the experiences a woman lives through.

She says, “I see someone’s face, someone’s body who’d had children and I think they’re the song lines of your experience, and why would you want to eradicate that?“

While Blanchett may be against plastic surgery, she likely has had some laser treatments and chemical peels to help her keep her skin youthful. “Her skin is nearly flawless, and may be aided by top-of-the-line skin care products, chemical peels, and lunchtime laser treatments,” says Youn. Nevertheless, Youn acknolwedges Cate’s natural beauty, “She has been blessed with great genes, which have caused the 37 year old actress to age very gracefully.”

Cate is a beauty that we’ll take with or without surgery.
