EXCLUSIVE! Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dr. Alessi Weighs In On Renee Zellweger's Unrecognizable Face!

| Filed under: Beauty BuzzKnifestylesRenee ZellwegerMakeup Magic!GIFs

Beverly Hills Plastic surgeon EXCLUSIVELY weighs in on Renee Zellweger's new look!

It's the look that's got everyone buzzing!

Renee Zellweger made her return to the red carpet at Elle's annual Women In Hollywood Awards on Monday night, and she looked well, not immediately recognizable!

Despite looking extra wide-eyed, the actress also proudly showed off her fresh, dewy skin. Not to say she doesn't look good, but after comparing her looks from the past few years, we couldn't help but wonder if she had gone under the knife, or maybe just upped her own facial routine.

So we EXCLUSIVELY chatted with one of the country's top plastic surgeons, Dr. Alessi, of the Alessi Institute and Face Forward Foundation, to get his very own medical opinion on her new look. While he isn't Renee's doctor, he brings up some very interesting points!

Q: What appears to be the extent of work done on Renee?

A: "The main thing obviously is the eyes. It would appear she's had botox done because if you look [at older photos], she had that classic arch of the eyebrows, and that's gone now, and the only way to get that is a browlift.

The second thing is you can see that her face is generally red — not in her neck, just in her face — so it would seem she's had laser restructuring done (facial laser).

The other thing is she used to have a round face and now she has an oval face. So it appears that she had some of her buccal fat removed — the fat inside her cheeks. Her cheekbones are more prominent now, because she's a little more hollowed out under the cheeks. So she probably [had that removed and] she probably had botox in her masseters — the muscles inside her cheeks. When you do that, you get a more heart-shaped, more oval-shaped face."

Considering the most popular procedures for 45-year-old women, such as Renee, are Botox and fillers according to the Doc, it wouldn't be a far stretch had she gotten them done.

Especially since the last time Renee hit the red carpet was over a month ago, it would have given her enough time to heal, according to Dr. Alessi.

Do U think the nip/tuck rumors are true???

    Perez, since when does a facial routine change that way a person looks so that you don't even recognize them?????? She will only start looking more like a man as time goes on…

    Looks like she lost weight and added some color to her skin! Good for her!

    She looks way older than 45, she looks mid 50's in this new pic. Nothing about it looks fresh and dewy

    She went way too far. I understand the eye lift, her eyes were way too droopy for a 45 year old. She had beautiful porcelain skin and "youthful" full cheeks. Now she looks old and tired and haggard. She looks like Renee Zellweger's older sister. It's sad that she looks older. Didn't she learn after seeing Meg Ryan?

    …She ugly….

  11. Megan says – reply to this


    This is clearly not Renee! Laser resurfacing and Botox do not alter the appearance in this way at all !! Smh amatures

  12. anna nadine says – reply to this


    oh no it's meg ryan all over again

  13. Steven Epstein says – reply to this


    I think its Meredith Vieria

  14. Andrea says – reply to this


    She doesn't look, bad… Just not herself, and quite a bit older.

  15. M says – reply to this


    She really doesn't look any different here than she did in those photos you posted from a month ago. I don't really think she looks too different in the comparison photos here either. Just older. Actually the only thing that looks different is the nose and the plastic surgeon didn't even mention that.

    I like her smiley eyes in the before picture.
    Also is it just me, or do her eyebrows seem closer to her eyes in the After pic?

    That's not Zellweger. It is a prank!

  22. Wilna says – reply to this


    There is no way this is Renee , no way,

  23. Anon says – reply to this


    Oh for pete's sakes. Why is this being debated. She obviously had a little skin removed from her upper eyelids. That opened her eyes up more and brought down the eyebrows. Very common procedure for heavy lidded people.

    Who gives a rats ass if she looks different? She has the same face shape but you can tell she is tanner and has a lot of make up contouring face. This website, and others like it, never post a pictures of a waxy man and talk about his plastic surgery. Who really gives two shits if she had plastic surgery? Isn't her job to look put together all the time? She is getting older and wanted to change things up. I think she looks great and we should stop bashing her for decided to do what countless others have done too.

    Wow I was shocked to see the drastic change. It's like two different people. And please don't give me the BS that it's due to ageing or being happy (as Renee would say). Really now, there are a lot of celebs who had plastic surgery but they still look like themselves (albeit several years younger). For example, Jane Fonda obviously had work done but you would still recognize her as Jane Fonda. As for Renee, she had work done but we couldn't recognize her. Actually I initially thought that photo was Robin Wright!

  26. Selena says – reply to this


    Anyone who says that she looks the same is crazy. She looks very different. She had major surgery and that's why she looks unrecognizable. No, I don't think she looks fantastic. She looks like she's in her 50s. #FACT

  27. go Renee! says – reply to this


    She definitely lost some of the fullness and "babyfat" in her cheeks…That really changes her look! And I think her eyelids look a bit less hooded, maybe perhaps due to reducing the chub and square shape of her cheeks. She looks different, but best wishes to such a classy, pretty and talented actress!! Love her!-

  28. Dr. Ovan says – reply to this


    NO - I think she just stopped getting facial fillers. You LOSE fat as you age, so it would be more likely that she was getting botox and fillers prior to this. Even in her older days, she had puffiness all over which indicates overdoing it with facial fillers. So if she stopped, due to aging alone - she would naturally LOSE facial fat. I don't think most people in their 40's CHOOSE to have fat removed from their face but just the opposite actually - they put it in. I think that possibly she overdid the botox and fillers prior to this, and perhaps she has taken a long breather WITHOUT all the botox and fillers - and so this is what you get…..a 40-ish year old woman. I think she looks worse not better - so clearly the fat from her face is gone.
