Cameron Diaz has been in the public eye since the 1990s when she hit movie screens in The Mask. Since then, she has become as well-known for her appearance as she has for her acting career. As the actress has continued to age, her looks have come under scrutiny as many celebrity watchers feel her appearance might have been altered over the years through plastic surgery. Has this romantic comedy superstar had plastic surgery to enhance her bright smile and youthful appearance? Let’s try and answer that question in the article below.
Back in 2009, the native of Long Beach, California, told a magazine reporter that she had come to accept the figure of her body, but she did wish that her body had more curves. Diaz said, “I’d love a bigger butt, more meat on my bones. I’d love to be more voluptuous. It’s just not my body type.”
In a 2014 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cameron Diaz admitted to having injections in her face in the past. However, she was not a fan of the results of her Botox injections. “I’ve tried Botox before, where it was like [a] little tiny touch of something. It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to [be] like [that]’” She went on to add, “I’d rather see my face aging than a face that doesn’t belong to me at all.”
Botox is able to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face and give the treated area a smooth look. A medical professional will inject Botox into a muscle that is located near a wrinkle so neuromuscular blockers are able to limit the amount of muscle contractions that occur in the treated area. The limiting of muscle contractions allows the muscles to relax so the skin is able to smooth out and reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is often injected into the corners of the eyes, the forehead, and above the nose as these areas are often subject to excessive frowning and squinting. The relaxing of these muscles means the skin is not continuously pulled.
The movie superstar also told the TV show that she made the decision to embrace the formation of laugh lines on her face. “I love it, I don’t mind. It’s like, ‘Guess what this means, I’ve smiled my whole life.’ I love life. I’m happy I don’t have a problem with that.”
For the past decade, Diaz has been less focused on acting and more focused on becoming an author of books that share how to maintain good health. She has also been focused on her personal life including marriage and a daughter.
When it comes to the use of Botox or other cosmetic procedures, Cameron Diaz told a reporter that she does not pass judgement “on how people feel good.” The actress feels that plastic surgery and injectables are able to help people have a better self-image.
“They’re to help people feel a little bit better about themselves. If they do feel better about themselves, then those procedures have worked. I have no problem with that. And [in] a lot of instances, it does make you look like you’ve taken a nap…or that you might be a little younger than you looked maybe the day before.”
She went on to explain how the “five pillars of well-being” AKA nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress release and meaningful relationships – are all vital components of a healthy aging process. “Those are the things that truly impact aging and help you age better. Those are the things that you really have to know and incorporate – along with the Botox, if that makes you happy.”
In addition to Botox procedures, Cameron Diaz has also admitted to having multiple rhinoplasty surgeries in the past. According to the actress, the rhinoplasty procedures were performed in order to help her address breathing problems and not for any type of aesthetic changes that were driven by vanity. Rhinoplasty, AKA a nose job, is able to alter the size, look, and shape of the nose by making changes to the skin, bone, or cartilage of the nose. In addition to helping a patient breathe easier, rhinoplasty is also able to provide an improved balance to the nose and the other features of the face. Some of the changes patients want to make to the nose include giving a crooked nose a straighter look, narrowing the bridge of the nose, and altering the angle that is located between the upper lip and the nose. In general, rhinoplasty can be performed as open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty and the decision about which technique to use is determined by the professional opinion of the surgeon and the extent of the work that needs to be performed on the nose.
As she continues to age, it remains to be seen if Cameron Diaz will embrace more celebrity plastic surgery or simply go for a natural look as she gets older.
