There’s nothing about this I don’t like. And not just because washing down a schadenfreude sundae with Haterade ™ fuels the bile that is my hatred for all humankind. It made me laugh because I thought the same thing upon seeing these photos of Megan Fox, that she posted to her Facebook along with the title, ‘Things you can’t do when you have botox.’ There was one photo in particular that was bizarre; her face was screwed up in an odd manner, creating that preternatural arc of wrinkles on her forehead. When I saw that, being only a few years older than her, I picked up a mirror and mimicked the expressions to find negligible lines on my face; my deduction ‘WTF IS WRONG WITH HER SKIN? Mine doesn’t do that, nor is it that loose… she should see a doctor about that.’ And, shazam! Doctors to the rescue. In this case, ‘rescue’ consists of mocking her acting and making passive-aggressive remarks about her poor Photoshop skills. Doctors were shown the photos in which Fox claimed she’d had no botox. Three doctors argued that the lines countered the very nature of the muscles/ skin of the human face. Excuse me while hunt down and sex to death these doctors.
‘Looks like Megan is just as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment,’ says plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. ‘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.’ Dermatologist Dr. Vince Afsahi says, ‘The photo looks altered. The muscles in the forehead do not usually create an arc-like pattern seen in the photo. …Anatomically [it] does not make sense.’ And dermatologic surgeon Dr. David Sire quips, ‘I have never seen the frontalis [forehead] muscle do this unless the muscle was surgically cut. It appears as if she is frowning and elevating her brow at the same time. Quite a feat!’ [OC Register, High Society Plastic Surgery via Jezebel]
