Joan Van Ark Surgery

"Knots Landing" star Joan Van Ark, 69, has undeniably gone under the plastic surgeon's knife for numerous surgical procedures. The number of surgeries Joan Van Ark has underwent is unclear, but if you take a look at her face you can tell what sort of work she has had...

To be more exact, judging by the before and after pictures, which have circulated on the web, Joan has clearly gone overboard with surgery. Her leather-like skin indicates she's had multiple facelifts while her slightly smaller nose suggests a a nose job. Her lips are fuller than they were during her "Knots Landing" days, which shows she's used collagen injections. In addition, she has likely had cheek implants because her cheeks are apparently fuller. Finally, it is more than obvious she's had excessive botox injections. For her age Joan has very few wrinkles around her face.

In many interviews she was often asked if she has gone under the knife, but despite the countless questions she has received, Joan has somehow avoided the subject. Joan has not made a single statement about the surgeries she has obviously succumbed.

 The irony is that Joan Van Ark has appeared in an episode of the plastic surgery based drama "Nip/Tuck". Needless to say that many people speculated this was her way to tell the world discretly about her surgeries...  

The question is: "What plastic surgeon experts beleive about Joan Van Ark's surgery?" 

On his blog, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn claims: "I've had some readers ask me what is going on with Joan Van Ark's face. Hmm…maybe some plastic surgery?"

"She's such a pretty woman so it's a shame she may have altered her looks considerably with plastic surgery. In my opinion, she appears to have had a browlift and upper blepharoplasty, creating the "hollowed out" appearance to her upper eyes. Her nose looks thinner and shorter, possibly from a rhinoplasty. Her lips also appear augmented, likely from Restylane. In addition, her neckline is almost impossibly sharp for a 64 year old, and can be the result of a facelift. Her cheeks are somewhat puffy, possibly due to facial fat grafting. Finally, her skin has a smooth, waxy sheen. This can be caused by a combination of Botox (forehead), Juvederm (frown lines) and chemical peels or laser treatments," Dr. Youn explains.

"While I think that some of these (possible) procedures work for her (facelift, injectable fillers), others have not improved her appearance at all (rhinoplasty, lip augmentation). Maybe she should take some advice from her contemporary Joan Collins and not have any plastic surgery at all! "

Conclusion: It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that Joan Van Ark has a scary appearance because of her multiple surgeries (facelift, nose job and brow lift) and heavy makeup. In an effort to fight the hands of time, she is a tragic case of celebrity plastic surgery gone wrong.
