Dr. Tony Nakhla speaks on Billy Crystal’s alleged plastic surgery with the Orange County Register

Oscars: Plastic surgery awards go to …?



Few A-listers announce they’ve had cosmetic procedures. But big awards shows and the web heighten the scrutiny. Who looked polished to a gleam at the 2012 Academy Awards? And who could’ve used work?

So, was it that obvious?

Hollywood’s Botoxed, filled, peeled, cut and/or lasered faces drew plenty of snark around the web throughout the Academy Awards show on Sunday night.

“Zombieland is on FX,” a tweet read. “Compared to the Oscars, it’s funnier, shorter, and the zombies have had less plastic surgery.”

Even Kate Walsh got in on the act, urging her fellow actresses to stop it already with all the plastic surgery (we’ve cleaned up her tweet a bit here): “dear Hollywood actresses, stop ——g up your faces, it’s looking [like] the bar scene in Star Wars.” (Uh, for the record, she gets laser treatments.)

Host Billy Crystal, looking smooth at 63, bore the brunt of the critical feedback.

“Crystal’s plastic surgery is so off-putting,” Nikki Finke wrote in Deadline Hollywood. “His face looks like it was ironed — and I swear I can still see the scorch marks.”

Dr. Tony Nakhla, medical director of OC Skin Institute, told us, “Part of what looks off in Billy’s case is his eyelid job, which appears a bit feminized. I think his surgeon took too much skin off of the upper lids and left too much fat. Also, his skin appears a bit opaque and thinned out, most likely from an overdone facelift plus or minus an overly aggressive laser resurfacing.”

But Crystal actually looked improved over 2011, in plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow’s view. “Billy looked better on TV this year than last,” the Newport Beach doctor told this blog. “Maybe some of his treatments are finally wearing off a bit.”

And eternally youthful Tom Cruise, who presented the award for best picture, also drew his share of dropped jaws and detractors.

“Tom Cruise is totally Benjamin Buttoning” @Buzzfeed tweeted, referring to the movie character who kept getting younger.

“I don’t think he’s found the Fountain of Youth, but he’s done the next best thing — found a good plastic surgeon,” celebrity-watching Dr. Anthony Youn said in Today.com. “He looks like someone who has had a plethora of the best cosmetic treatments available.”

One Today.com reader, though, saw a practical reason for that:

“He’s an actor. His looks are part of what make him bankable. As long as we want our leading men to be young and fit, stuff like this will happen. Supporting roles don’t pay as much.”

Of course, some movie stars aren’t eligible to win a plastic surgery award. Though looking quite dapper in a black bow-tie, we know this one just didn’t qualify:
