Recent banter about Susan Lucci's facial renovations gave me the idea to start one of my beloved plastic surgery and dermatology threads!

Let's dish on who looks great, who looks awful and how they go there!

What about Jess Walton? I figure she looks really nice and I can't tell if she's done anything... perhaps Botox? Or is it all natural?

I hate plastic surgery. smile.gif

For me, it's kind of scary... DaytimeFan was explaining all the eye cutting on the other thread and I was like ohmy.gif I don't think I would ever be able to do something like this.

She is truly a mystery to me. She has excellent, thick, trouble free skin...but damn is that jawline still taught or what? She has aged, but beautifully. Certainly, she's had some Botox in her forehead and I'm willing to bet a chemical peel here and there. Damn does she look good.

Ha Ha. Well then I hate to break it to you, but you must hate everyone you see on television or on the screen because they've all had something done and most of them look fabulous.

It's just awful, terrible! I am kind of pro stuff like lasers (Pearl skin rejuvenation, texture and pigmentation, sun damage removal; IPL can, for example, reduce pore size, treat scars, diminish wrinkles [i don't know in what amount]; there is Pulsed Dye, which removes birthmarks, treats acne and stretchmarks; YAG reduces spider veins; then there's TITAN... They can also remove excessive body hair, tattoos...) but very much against any cutting, injecting, implanting... Anything invasive. :)

I know.

In 50 years people will become a mixture between humans and some kind of surgery-genetic-whatever-modified organisms.

Horrifying.

Deidre Hall and Lauren Koslow always fascinated me. They both defy age.

I guess any discussion of plastic surgery must inevitably turn to Jackie Zeman and Leslie Charleson from GH. What did they do to themselves to look so bad?

Yep, she has aged great.... I guess she's one of "those" people :lol:

Is there a difference in how you will cope with or look after plastic surgery if you are a heavy smoker, or drinker, versus not doing a lot of either of those?

Smoking is a big no-no before and after surgery. Smoking shrinks capillaries which slows healing and can cause complications during surgery. I remember catching an episode of Dr. 90210 where he told one of his patients that she'd have to quit a couple of weeks before he operated on her. Well, she didn't, and as she was coming out of anesthesia she was wheezing like a furnace and damn near coughed up a lung. He reprimanded her.

And in general, it can make the skin look dull and papery. This is pure speculation on my part, but when I saw pictures of Donna Karan (who incidentally was in a ltr with her plastic surgeon, Dr. Baker) my first thought was that she must be a smoker. It's just sonthing about the way her skin draped on her face after surgery. Again, pure speculation, but just a gut reaction, like she was surgically rejuvinated yet she still looked weathered.

I was just wondering because I think Jess Walton is or was a heavy smoker. I also wonder if that might have caused some of the unsuccessful plastic surgeries in some actresses.

I don't know if she still is (remember the talk of a health scare last year? I know DF remembers), but she once was. I've read interviews where the interviewer mentions her lighting up, and with a voice like that... I'd also guess that Jeanne Cooper quit smoking years ago, her voice healed a la Bea Arthur's.

Jeanne had her first surgeries around '84, didn't she? Or the first she talked about, anyway. I wonder if she'd quit by then.

What about Lauren Koslow? She butchered her face royally in the last few years.

And which ones are we thinking have veneers?
