Shannen Doherty Plastic Surgery

American actress, producer, author and television director Shannen Doherty, best known for her roles in "Little House on the Prairie", "Heathers", "Our House", "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Charmed", is rumored to have gotten plastic surgery in order to conform to Hollywood's rigid standards of beauty.

Doherty, now 42, is speculated to have had a nose job, botox injections, fillers like Restylane, cheek implants, mid-facelift and a breast augmentation.

Shannen has changed noticeably little since her time on the first round of "Beverly Hills 90210", which is likely a sign of some subtle surgical work, like botox injections to stay away from any wrinkles. She may also have used fillers like Restylane to maintain her signature big and full lips.

Some plastic surgeons believe that Shannen has also had more invasive work in the form of cheek implants and a mid-facelift, claiming that her cheeks are puffed out like balloons and she has almost no wrinkles, which is impossible at her age. Even when she was younger her cheeks had no near the volume they have now. Also, her cheeks are way too indicating to the fact that she had facial fillers and botox injections. As a result, she has a pretty hard time smiling.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. John Di Saia was quoted as saying: "Shannen has had facial work. At least a mid-face lift and/or cheek implant. More likely would be a mid-facelift with eyes and a forehead lift between 2000 and now. Maybe she has ruled any out any more surgery for a while which would be a good choice if I am close."

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden considers that Shannen's operations have been less invasive, revealing: "In my opinion, these days Shannon Doherty doesn't look much older, just different. One can see this in various photos taken at different angles and lighting at different points in time. 

This leads one to wonder if either 1) some photos have been retouched or possibly distorted (the Star Magazine cover), as we all know is possible with the photoshop techniques available on most computers today, or 2) she may have undergone some non-permanent, minimally invasive procedures.  For example, in some pics her crow's feet appear much more prominent than in other more recent ones even though her face is animating (smiling) the same. 

This could be due to botox, which selectively and temporarily paralyzes the muscle called the orbicularis oculi that squeezes the eye shut and also causes those stubborn wrinkles emanating from the corner of the eye. Also, nonpermanent fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane that are made of hyaluronic acid may have been injected to plump up her lips, nasolabial folds, and cheeks

I have neither examined nor treated her, but I seriously doubt she has had any major plastic surgery done. We don't really consider Botox or fillers "plastic surgery" in the sense of a true operation in the operating room with anesthesia - these are minimally invasive injections involving a syringe filled with the product and a needle that registered nurses and doctors can deliver with proper training and certification (that being said - pick your provider wisely!). 

In Manhattan, some of these things are just as much a part of maintenance as teeth whitening, brow waxing, and hair highlights".

"Some of the unique features of Shannon Doherty's face that make her memorable include the gap between her two central incisors (front teeth), and the asymmetry between the two halves of her face. Pretty much everyone's face is asymmetric when the right side is compared to the left; this is one of Shannon's most distinct, and in my opinion, attractive features. It makes her who she is," Dr. Walden added.

In the past, Shannen may also have had a nose job to give her nose a smaller shape. She has also probably had a boob job, a subtle one.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. John Di Saia explained: "She has probably had breast implants in and out over the years although I can't be sure."

Doherty has dismissed all the plastic surgery rumors, claiming: "These are my looks, whether you like them or not. They work for me. I have a gap in the middle of my teeth. You know how many people wanted to cover that gap?"

"My parents are like: "Don't ever do that! That's what makes you different!" I was raised to have a lot of confidence and believe in myself," Shannen noted.

In the past, Shannen has filed a lawsuit against publications for reporting that she has had work done. At the time, she was quoted as saying: "I'm actually willing to go so far as to go sit down with whatever plastic surgeon they want to put in front of me who can inspect my face. I went to work and my lovely hairdresser David came to me and said: "Oh my God, did you see the cover of Star?" and I went: "No, why?"

"He told me and then he pulled it up online…Production got halted for about an hour and a half because I was sobbing uncontrollably. If you didn't have it and they're saying that you did, then it's embarrassing, it's humiliating. I don't know if anybody's noticed, but I've pretty much been hiding out as much as humanly possible. I've been trying to stay out of the press because I just don't want it in my life anymore. I hired a litigator and I'm willing to put as much money behind a lawsuit as humanly possible, just to sort of teach them a lesson," Shannen added.

On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn also hints that he suspects Shannen of going under the plastic surgeon's knife, but he declines to say what for fear of legal action.

Conclusion: With or without plastic surgery, Shannen Doherty looks entirely natural.
