Renée: It’s a hairdo, a tan and an eyelift, local surgeon opines

2014-10-24 00:00

PEOPLE around the world are still wondering whether the Bridget Jones’s Diary actress Renée Zellweger has had work done to her face.

We asked expert plastic surgeon Dr Willem Erasmus what he thought of Zellweger’s new look and if he thought she had any procedures done to her face.

Erasmus said after taking a critical look at Zellweger, he thought the knee-jerk reaction to her look may be “a bit over the top”.

“Hairstyle, as you know, makes a difference and it’s totally different

“Her hair is out of her face completely, and what woman hasn’t gone through a fringe phase and doesn’t know how much it can change the way you look?”

Erasmus noted that it looked like she had had a tan and added that this was “a sin to any surgeon”.

“Her nose is unchanged, her cheeks are similar, her brow in the same position and her lips are similar. The most striking difference are her eyes. If I were to put money on a procedure that she has done, that would be it.”

Erasmus added that this procedure is the most popular one done among both men and women.
