Bruce Jenner Revisited
You win some you lose some....well, for Bruce Jenner that statement couldn't be more true. The Olympic athlete became famous after winning multiple gold medals in the 70's and 80's and was quickly recognized for not just his medals. Mr. Jenner became an instant heart throb to woman world wide. At some point in the 80's he decided to have rhinoplasty and a partial face lift. He will be the first to admit that it was a huge mistake. It has never been publicly discussed from his camp, but many members of his immediate family have spoken about how disappointed he was with the results. Jenner has been the butt of many plastic surgery jokes over the years. With the success of the reality show "Keeping up with the Kardashians", Jenner has been thrust into the spotlight again. With the support and encouragement of his family, Jenner went under the knife again to revise some of the effects of the first surgery. According to Life and Style magazine, he and his wife Kris could not be happier with the results. After looking at the very few "after" pictures I could find on the net, it seems like he underwent a neck lift to match the facelift that had been done earlier. It also looks as if the facelift skin flaps were re-elevated and re-draped to give his face a bit more natural and less tight, stretched look. It does look like they streamlined his face a bit (especially along the jaw line). As far as the nose....well, it looks the same to me. With any aesthetic surgery the most important thing is that the patient is happy with the results. After all it is HIS face and he has to looks at it everyday. I would say on a whole it is just another triumph for Bruce Jenner!!
