Just in case you have forgotten Linda Evans, Evans is an American actress, best known for her roles on television. She rose to fame portraying Audra Barkley in the 1960s Western TV series: "The Big Valley" (1965–1969). Her most prominent role was that of Krystle Carrington in the 1980s ABC prime time television soap opera "Dynasty", a role she played from 1981 to 1989.
Linda Evans, 69, may not be in the spotlight for a while, but that doesn’t mean she is not talked about. Sadly, it’s not for her drama skills as much as it is for her botched plastic surgery.
After "Dynasty" Evans spent a great deal of time in the plastic surgeon’s office, getting implants, fillers and lifts.
Linda’s face is preternaturally full for a woman at her age, which indicates the use of either an overload of facial fillers or cheek implants.
According to Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer: "Linda looks like she has had dermal fillers or cheek implants in her midface, leaving her cheeks appearing over-exaggerated."
In addition to the full appearance of her face, it is also very stretched and pulled looking - possibly facelift and eyelift. She also seems as though she’s had a nose job, leaving her nose very pinched looking.
Facial plastic surgeon expert Dr. Paul S. Nassif claims: "Ms. Evans has probably had all areas of her face worked on: a facelift, an over-aggressive rhinoplasty which makes her nose look pinched, over-elevated eyebrows and hollow eyes from an aggressive eyelid and brow surgery and finally, over-inflated lips. Subtle surgery and fillers would have kept her more natural looking."
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J. Aston is quoted as saying: "Linda Evans had classic good looks and a brilliant smile. She appears to have had in the past a rhinoplasty, facelift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, and brow lift. Recent photos show over injection of her face and lips. This is a perfect example of attempts to correct the signs of aging by using one modality."
Instead of such invasive procedures, Dr. Aston suggests: "Conservative injection to restore facial volume along with sophisticated facial surgery would have left her beautiful. She should not have any more surgery or injections."
Linda Evans was once an attractive woman, but going under the knife too often in an effort to maintain her youthful appearance it led to the opposite result...
The irony is that when Evans recently appeared on the "Oprah Winfrey Show" (where she discussed topics as aging and plastic surgery) made the following statement: "Getting older, you get wiser. That’s the great thing about aging."
"I’m happier (now) because I don’t define myself by the way people think," Evans added. "A person’s goal should be "(looking) in the mirror and...(loving) yourself no matter what you see."
Evans spoke wisely, but she would be more believable if she distanced herself from the plastic surgery...
As ET Online reports, Evans was really concerned and stressed about looking older than her boyfriend, so she went under the plastic surgeon's knife in her 50s. "I’m not sorry that I did it," Evans was quoted as saying.
"I had surgery done after "Dynasty" because I was in love with (musician Yanni), a man 12 years younger than me … And hey, I’m not sorry that I did it. I wanted to look a certain way so that I could feel better about that 12-year difference," Evans admitted.
According to PopEater reports, Evans later realized that maintaining that look would require more time and expense than she was willing to devote to it.
It has to be mentioned that Linda Evans suffered from a low self-esteem. Just to remind you that she told Oprah she has never considered herself an attrative woman.
"What you look like has nothing to do with what you think about yourself," Evans revealed to a shocked Oprah.
