In periodic health examinations in 2008, the famous actress Christina Applegate, who won the Golden Globe award, in the age of 36, received a bad new from the doctors. Christina Applegate had a breast cancer and her mother also suffered from the disease. Although detection early, but she is still be treated immediately. Initially, Applegate kept it, but then, she has become an active propaganda person. People should have a periodic health examination. Many Hollywood celebs, including Christina Applegate have breasts removed and reconstructed their breast when facing new risk of dying from breast cancer. Christina Applegate is also one of those people. Besides breast implant, Christina Applegate also a facelift and a nose job.
First, let me preface this by saying I am a Christina Applegate fan. Truly, I think she is beautiful and smart and hilarious. How many actresses have been working steadily (with A-list name recognition) since the 1980s?? The sitcom Married With Children started in 1987, when she was just 16 years old. She's 42 now, so she's been famous for nearly three decades—the majority of her life!
I also think it's tremendously admirable that Christina both survived and went public with her battle with breast cancer and her double mastectomy, in 2008. I can't even imagine how hard that would be.
And so if injecting stuff into her lips makes her feel better, then by all means, she should go for it.
I just wish she wouldn't. Let's examine her beauty evolution and see...
First, here's her claim to fame, Kelly Bundy circa sometime in the late '80s or early '90s.
Methods of breast implant that Christina will use the expander implant method and it is also the most common method. First, all of the breast tissue is removed, then the doctor will put a division into the expander to stretch the skin to cover the breast implant trace will occur. Then the doctors started the tip parts of her breast reconstructed both breasts. However, instead of using silicone to put on the chest like the others, they would pull the breast tissue and fat cells from the body of Christina to pump into her chest. It is convenient both ways when having new boobs and liposuction to lose weight.
Many people believe that, Christina Applegate also used Botox on her face when appearing on the red carpet recently with a taut face. A light smile, puffed lips, stretching skin and rigid cheeks are still higher than normal in a weird way.
Not only that, it also pointed out that Christina had a facelift when comparing two pictures of her eyebrows. Previously, it was very natural, somewhat a little bit chubby face. But after this, her eyebrows were deformed from a line slanted to turn into a characteristic curve like the faces of the other famous faces. Obviously, she had to use cutlery to lift the face so it looks slimmer than before.
Her nose is also changed, from a big rough nose and turned into a short and high nose, but the nose is longer and straighter with smaller nostrils. This is a pretty big change that everyone can recognize.
Christina Applegate’s Reconstructive Plastic Surgery
Christina Applegate is no stranger to going under the knife, as Make Me Heal has previously reported on Christina’s plastic surgery. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Christina Applegate’s plastic surgery). But when the actress was diagnosed with breast cancer, Christina joined the ranks of women who opt for double mastectomies as their preferred treatment. Now, Christina has said she will spend the next several months undergoing reconstructive plastic surgery to help repair her breasts. Make Me Heal speculates on Christina’s surgery as well as other celebrities who have survived breast cancer.
It is difficult to speculate on what kind of reconstruction surgery Christina may be in the process of undergoing, as recent images aren’t revealing as Christina is, understandably, not wearing especially revealing clothing. As a young woman, recently diagnosed and treated, Christina is likely undergoing the most advanced techniques in reconstructive surgery, which spares as much skin as possible in order to later place implants.
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia tells Make Me Heal, “This one is hard as the possibilities in breast cancer surgery and reconstruction are many and the number of useful images we have to examine are few. Christina Applegate may have had contemporary skin-sparing mastectomies and may have started reconstruction with expanders as she seems up and around pretty early and is young. She has also admitted to her double mastectomy and again looks pretty good (in clothing at least) pretty soon afterward.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden further explains Christina’s likely treatment and reconstruction process: Christina Applegate: She underwent a bilateral mastectomy given her diagnosis of breast cancer and being BRCA-1 positive, which means after the mastectomies she has with very little tissue (equally) on both sides. For this reason, and the fact that she’s young and slender, she’s an ideal candidate for placement of tissue expanders which may have even been placed at the time of her mastectomy surgery. In any case, expanders are placed under the pectoralis major muscle and inflated with sterile saline over time to stretch out the breast skin, and ultimately silicone breast implants are replaced some 6 to 8 months later. Further down the road the nipples are reconstructed and even pigmented by a medical tattoo artist. Some lucky women who get double mastectomies which have been skin-sparing in nature have supple enough tissues that they don’t even need the expanders placed, and go straight to placement of the submuscular breast implants.”
Over the years, many other female celebrities have come out about their battles with breast cancer and how they dealt with the aftermath, either opting for some form of reconstructive surgery or not. These survivors include pop-singers Kylie Minogue, Sheryl Crow, Olivia Newton-John and Anastacia, as well as actresses Edie Falco and Lynn Redgrave to name a few.
Dr. John Di Saia explains, “Some women decide upon partial mastectomies and radiation therapy. Not too long ago the options were not as many and skin-sparing mastectomies were not yet popular. This left many not-so-great-looking breasts with more problems. Some of the ladies operated for breast cancer and/or reconstruction in the not-too-distant past will probably be unlikely to appear in images that we could use to determine what had happened, as they may be self-conscious.
