Facelift

TYWKIWDBI tries to avoid promoting celebrities and "personalities," so as much as we enjoy the movies of this  world-famous actress, we will ignore her identity and will focus instead only on the medical/surgical aspects of the photo, one of several taken this week in Venice that show an unusual appearance at the angle of her jaw, apparently as a result of having undergone a "thread lift."
Thread lifts emerged because many people — perhaps you — would like a facelift, but can't afford it or don't want the long recovery time of the standard facelift... It is perhaps better considered as a lesser, or preliminary procedure. Thread lifts cost less and require less downtime for many people. Some plastic surgeons promote the thread lift as a "lunchtime lift" or "weekend facelift." Usually it can be performed in about one hour.

Ideal candidates for thread lifts include people with minimal signs of aging who need just a small lift. Most people who undergo thread lifts are women between 35 and 45. They choose a thread lift because they have begun to see more prominence of the jaw, a relaxed (or minimally sagging) midfacial appearance or slight bags under the eyes or on the neck.
Movie buffs will be excused if they are immediately reminded of Sam Lowry's mother in Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

  1. Just as I thought, she is an alien and her synthetic skin mask was coming unglued. Those alien lips are not normal. The transfer of blood with Billy Bob Thorton was proof positive that she does not come from this world.

  2. Kind of looks like it could be Jennifer Garner too.

  3. Thank you for posting this. I am a big fan of this actress, and have always thought she is naturally gorgeous. However, this stands as a good reminder to women (such as myself) that even the beauty standards we look up to are typically artifical to some extent.
