Megan Fox is up in arms against claims that she gets Botox and has had plastic surgery!
In an effort to “prove” that she doesn’t get Botox, Megan posted a photo of herself on Facebook wrinkling her forehead. Does this prove that Megan doesn’t get Botox? Or does it just prove that Megan is as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment?
Keep Reading to find why Megan’s photo is nothing more than a Photoshop folly!
What’s wrong with this picture?
There are two sets of muscles in the forehead and brow. One set of muscles pull the brows down and in making you look angry, frustrated, and tired. The other set pull the brows upward making you look surprised. Each of these muscles creates it’s own unique pattern of wrinkles on the forehead.
The muscles that pull the brows down create vertical wrinkles between the eyes, while the muscles that pull the brows up create horizontal wrinkles across the forehead. Since it’s impossible for you to make an angry face and a surprised face at the same time, it’s also impossible to make the vertical wrinkles and the horizontal wrinkles appear at the same time (like Megan appears to be doing in her photo).
The most concerning detail about her photo is not only that she appears to be showing us the horizontal and vertical wrinkles at the same time, but also that she is showing us something that is anatomically impossible… a set of curved wrinkles!
“The wrinkles that start horizontally in the middle of her forehead and curve down towards her eyebrows don’t exist in anyone”, says New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. “The muscles in the forehead and brow simply don’t create curved wrinkles like that. The wrinkles Megan is showing us don’t coincide with brow anatomy, nor do they match the facial expression she is making.”
So, do curved wrinkles like this exist in the real world? The short answer is probably not. Welcome to the wonderful world of Photoshop!
What’s wrong with Megan?
In her rants against Botox and plastic surgery, Megan says that anyone who would consider such procedures should “see a therapist first”. We’re really not sure why Megan is so defensive about cosmetic procedures… so much so that she went through the time and effort to photoshop fake wrinkles onto her own forehead.
We’ve all seen the Before & After pictures in the media showing the various procedures she’s had (lip augmentation, cheekbone augmentation, breast implants, etc), and for the most part, the work looks like it was very well done and certainly nothing to be embarrassed about. No one denies that Megan is stunningly beautiful, but her outright defensiveness against cosmetic surgery makes us wonder if she believes that she’s as beautiful as everyone else thinks she is?? Hmmm…
