American actress Demi Moore, best known for starring in "Ghost" and "Striptease", is rumored to have succumbed to plastic surgery to turn back the hands of time.
Moore, 52, is speculated to have gotten breast implants, breast lift, botox injections, chemical peels, liposuction, brow lift, teeth veneers, nose job and knees surgery.
Moore, whose real name is Demi Guynes, is rumored to have spent over $120,000 on plastic surgery over the years and over $330,000 on diet and fitness routines, including nutritionist, personal trainer, yoga instructor and kick-boxing champion.
It is estimated that Demi has gotten a boob job back in 1996 for the movie "Striptease", only to remove them subsequently and get a breast lift. Moore has reportedly undergone liposuction to her hips, stomach and inner and outer hips as well as countless botox injections and chemical peels. She has also been rumored to have gotten a knee liposuction surgery.
It is reported, however, that Moore had performed numerous procedures because she could't bear to find any part of her body with imperfections.
The truth is that since her rise to fame in the 1980s, Moore hasn't aged at all. In fact, she looks younger and more beautiful than ever! That's the reason many tabloids and celebrity watchers attribute plastic surgery to her youthful appearance.
On the other hand, Demi dismisses all the plastic surgery rumors, claiming she has never been under the knife. She revealed to an interviewer: "It's completely false! I've never had it done. I would never judge those who have. If it's the best thing for them, then I don't see a problem. On the other hand, I don't like the idea of having an operation to hold up the aging process: it's a way to combat your neurosis. The scalpel won't make you happy. That said, the day when I start crying when I look at myself in the mirror might be the day when I'm less adamant about not having it done. For the moment I prefer to be a beautiful woman of my age than try desperately to look 30."
Many plastic surgeon experts, though, don't believe Demi Moore's claims.
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia wrote on his blog: "Demi Moore looks great and plastic surgery has been involved. The last time she had any I don't know, but she has flirted with the knife. She denied it recently. I figure that she was misquoted."
Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn explained on his blog: "The lady doth protest too much, me think."
Moore responded to plastic surgeon experts via twitter. She stated: "All this garbage that came out today about me is nothing more than an effort to diminish not just me but all women. Diminishing us by continually measuring women based on how we look. Or don't look. Creating comparisons instead of connections Say no 2 that!"
On the other hand, Demi attributes her rejuvenated look to unnamed expensive products as well as natural therapies, including leech therapy and some nameless treatments.
A source close to the actress made the following statement to Star Magazine: "Demi is obsessed with her looks. She'll do anything to keep herself looking young."
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden claimed about Moore's plastic surgery procedures: "Demi Moore looks fantastic for her age. It seems that she has undergone breast augmentation, liposuction of the thighs possibly, Botox, a great skin care program with perhaps some resurfacing like peels or laser, and at this point maybe even a mini -facelift. She's a machine, more power to her."
After looking at photos of Moore before and after her "leech therapy," plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif agrees that the star may have been filled out a little.
Dr. Paul Nassif was quoted as saying: "Demi is smiling in the after photo, making it difficult for me to tell, but her cheeks do look a little plumper."
It has to be noted that often, after a facelift, the patient will want to keep up the refreshed look, usually by having botox as well as facial fillers injected into areas.
Moore doesn't have any signs of aging on her face, which is free from lines and wrinkles on her forehead, no jowls or slackness on her jaw, and a perfectly taut and tight neck. But we should take into account that her fresh face is attributed to a brow lift, multiple botox or Restylane/Juvederm injections, potential laser or chemical peels and likely a mini lower facelift which has helped her neck and lower face stand the test of time.
Moore has spent a fortune on cosmetic procedures and even Daily Mail has published a list of her plastic surgery expenses...

Conclusion: We have to admit that Moore's plastic surgery is really well performed, enhancing her natural appearance, without looking overdone.
