Sophia Loren: Plastic Surgeon Weighs In On Star At 78

Sophia Loren still looks great at 78, and now a prominent plastic surgeon has weighed in on how the star may have battled aging — with a bit of help.

Sophia Loren has been in the limelight for more than fifty years — and in a culture where age spells the end of fame for many women, that’s a big deal.

But while Loren still looks fab, a cosmetic surgeon speculates that she may have had a little help along the way — about $50,000 worth of it, in his professional opinion.

RadarOnline consulted surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who hasn’t treated Sophia Loren — because otherwise, he’d be unable to dish. However, as the actress is not a patient, Youn can make some educated guesses, and he thinks that she may have had some work done.

According to the surgeon, Sophia Loren’s well-preserved countenance may be down to a few nips, tucks and fillers, and he explains:

“I believe that she’s had at least $50,000 worth of plastic surgery to keep her looking so good … Her jaw-line is unnaturally sharp for a near-octogenarian. This is the possible result of a well-performed facelift or two. Although her lips are plump, she doesn’t sport a trout pout like some of her contemporaries. I suspect that she’s had injections of a filler like Juvederm.”

Youn adds:

“It also appears that she might have undergone an upper and lower eyelid lift, to keep her eyelids refreshed-looking. Fat injections to her cheeks may have prevented her from getting the sunken look of many women her age. Laser treatments and chemical peels may also play a part in her smooth skin, in addition to some possible Botox in her forehead … I also think she may sport a pair of breast implants to help keep her ample-chested as she nears the twilight of her years. Because they last approximately 20 years, it’s possible that she’s had more than one pair.”
