Megan Fox Tries To Debunk Botox Rumors
Doctors say the bizarre photos cast further suspicion that the actress gets work done
In an attempt to prove that she has not had work done, Megan Fox, 25, posted a series of photos on her Facebook fan page under the heading, "Things You Can't Do With Your Face When You Have Botox." The photos show Fox frowning, puckering and appearing surprised. Her effort to clear her name, though, may have had the very opposite effect.
“Looks like Megan is just as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment,” New York plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia wrote on his blog. “Those lines on her forehead are totally fake.… Muscles in the forehead and brow simply don’t create curved wrinkles like that. The wrinkles Megan is showing us don’t coincide with brow anatomy, nor do they match the facial expression she is making.”
Even if the photos are real, they do not necessarily prove the actress is free of Botox or plastic surgery, other doctors have said. “This photo is totally consistent with the wrinkle pattern you will see in someone whose Botox has begun wearing off,” plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow of Newport Beach told The OC Register. “When you have Botox to the entire face, different parts wear off at different rates and can give you a strangish-looking pattern of wrinkles until it all wears off. I bet this photo was taken the day before her Botox appointment."
Suspicion that Fox was getting plastic surgery and Botox injections arose when the actress starting appearing on the red carpet and in interviews with markedly enhanced features, including fuller lips, a more defined face and what some have suggested are breast implants. She will next appear in the Kristen Wiig comedy, Friends with Kids, to be released in theaters later this year.
