French actress Emmanuelle Beart is using her own botched plastic surgery as a warning to anyone considering a procedure.
The proof is in the pictures.
Take a look at Beart’s before and after in these photos — from gorgeous to almost unrecognizable with those overplumped lips.
Beart, best known to American Audiences for her role in Mission Impossible, is doing her part to campaign against plastic surgery, raising awareness about what can go wrong.
She shares with Le Monde, “I had my mouth done when I was 27. It was a botched job. Obviously, if I had liked my mouth I wouldn’t have had it re-done.”
She added, “If a man or woman has something redone it is because he or she can no longer live with that part of their body, it is no longer bearable. Either they get help and find the strength to fight [the need to have plastic surgery] or they proceed with the act.”
Wow, it’s amazing to think that so many people can be that bothered by an imperfection that they can barely fight the need for plastic surgery.
Beart, who is 47, finally confirmed that she had work done, despite speculation for some time.
Given her surgery mishap, Beart says she was “profoundly affected” by it and wouldn’t do it again, adding, “It is a grave act in which you don’t necessarily foresee all the consequences.”
She sounds pretty bothered by the fact that she won’t endure further procedures, noting, “Just the idea of an injection these days devastates me. So I don’t know how I will get through these stages [of middle and old age).”
Actresses can be so dramatic. Emmanuelle Beart apparently had a negative experience with lip injections. Now because she had a bad experience she is on a crusade against the dangers of plastic surgery. Go figure.
We have discussed the ups and downs of lip injections before. It is all in the doctor’s experience and the choice of filler. The safer fillers do not last very long. Silicone gel injections can be a nightmare. Perhaps Ms Beart had silicone injections. This would put her behind the “silicone eight ball” so to speak. Just ask Lisa Rinna.
That is not to say that lip injections or plastic surgery in general must always go down a negative path. The problem with some celebrities is they cannot seem to realize this fact. If her experience was negative, then maybe she sees herself as the proverbial heroine warning the public. Another possibility is that this is just a re-run of “quick and dirty PR.” Plastic surgery stories in pretty celebrities are pretty readily picked up in the media.
I hope Ms Beart did not have silicone injected, but doubt she would be so disfigured over the long term if she stuck with safer hyaluronic acid based materials. We have warned here ad nauseum that informed patients should stay away from silicone injections. They have a much higher risk potential than is acceptable.
If Ms Beart had a moderate amount of a hyaluronic acid based filler injected and didn’t like it, it would have long sense dissolved never to be seen again unless she returned for re-treatment. Then again she was treated twenty years ago. The choices then were limited and silicone problems were less well known. Silicone gel injections tend to rear their ugly heads like B movie monsters that just never seem to perish despite the heroic attempts of the cast. Maybe Emmanuelle has seen some of this which is indeed a shame.
