When familiar faces turn strange

Familiar faces addicted to retouching, afraid of getting old or caught in the swelling of the first days. The images comparing the before and after of celebrities after alleged aesthetic retouching are a classic, but they become more viral when the celebrity in question appears deteriorated with respect to the image of her that we all have in our heads, as was the case with Zac Efron some days ago.

The one that in 2006 managed to get thousands of adolescent folders to line the portfolio with his stamp on High School Musical he became a mockery of many others for the obvious changes in his face. It is widely known that Efron broke his jaw in 2013, but it is not very clear if that old injury can now be due to this new appearance that has raised so much criticism. He was not spared even the criticism of his own friends, as a close friend of the actor, the radio host Kyle Sandilands, approached his new image in this way: “It’s like getting a Picasso and having a child paint it with his fingers.”

Another face that caused a scandal recently was that of actress Demi Moore. The image of the protagonist of Ghost debuting as a model at the Fendi fashion show in Paris haute couture week went around the world for showing off excessively high cheekbones. At first it was attributed to the fact that the interpreter would have undergone a bichectomy – an operation aimed at reducing the bichat balls, the fat cavities of the cheeks – but a few days later the actress reappeared on her Instagram with a much more natural face. So while her face might still produce the typical “something’s been done” coffee comment, it was attributed to a makeup mistake.

Among the nationals, one of the most notorious recent cases was that of Kiko Matamoros, who appeared at her job in front of thousands of spectators within hours of having undergone a session of injectable cosmetics at the clinic of her daughter-in-law, the doctor and Miss Spain 2015 Carla Barber. “Ah! The hyaluronic acid infiltration is also going very well. Everything is on his way ”, commented the collaborator, sharing an image on his Instagram of his already deflated face after the first days.

Another who would not have calculated the hours well before appearing before the cameras was Álvaro Muñoz Escassi. The rider looked unrecognizable on the red carpet at the 2019 Malaga Festival, he attributed it to a solar reaction but by then it had already become a mockery of attentive Internet users. “Faced with so much speech, I have only had an allergic reaction to the sun. The day I need or want to improve my physical condition, I will do it ”, he wanted to settle days later.

But without a doubt, the worst aesthetic touches that will go down in history as disastrous are those of Jocelyn Wildenstein and Mickey Rourke, since both now wear faces more like a Halloween mask than a human. The first is said to have been operated to achieve a more feline face. The second, who was one of the most desired actors of the 1980s, is the unsuccessful result of the aggressive aesthetic touch-ups that the actor made over the years. Rourke’s aesthetic changes are no longer news in Hollywood, but those last photographs of him that went viral gave food for thought before approaching a syringe or a scalpel.

Other celebrities, luckily, are more controlled or have not yet reached the point of the previous ones. This is the case, for example, of Rocío Flores. We have seen Rocío Carrasco’s estranged daughter undergo a true metamorphosis in recent years on television. She does not hide and reveal and sometimes even promotes her sessions of the equivalent of a badge and paint on a face. As the Brussels clinic showed in a publication.
