Paulina Porizkova Claps Back At A Plastic Surgeon Who Suggests Her Face Needs ‘Fixing’

August 15, 2022 / Posted by:

Paulina Porizkova, one of the most successful models of the 80s and 90s, is currently getting treated badly because of the unforgivable crime of aging. I was always under the impression that aging was the goal because the alternative is really depressing. But as Paulina has already discovered, some men can be mean and judgmental once you get past theI’d Hit That!‘ stage in life. And that’s what’s happened recently as one of her photos has come under the scrutiny of an unnamed plastic surgeon who is picking apart her face and telling everyone what’s wrong with it. But Paulina isn’t remaining silent and is using the same photo as a teachable moment about how difficult it is to be a woman aging in the fashion industry.

According to People, Paulina noticed a picture she previously posted on Instagram was being picked apart horribly by a plastic surgeon who took time out of their schedule to showcase all of the ways Paulina’s face should be fixed. Of course, once Paulina caught wind of the post she immediately took to her Instagram to school everyone on the joys of aging in a world where everyone expects you to always be perfect.

“I found this photo, which I have posted here before, (and thought I looked great in) reposted here on IG by a cosmetic surgeon, and discussing in detail what I needed done,” she began a lengthy caption on InstagramFriday.

“Those pesky hollows under my cheeks could be gotten rid of with fillers, Botox for my forehead, those wrinkles on the side of my mouth, and the chords in my neck, and a whole bunch of lasers to tighten and smooth and tighten everything,” wrote Porizkova.

“This is what an older woman in the public eye gets to deal with,” she continued. “I’m told my face needs ‘fixing’. It has somehow gone ‘wrong’ by aging. Is it any wonder that most of us who have the means will resort to some forms of fixing what we’re told is broken?”

Paulina posted the photo for context as well.

Now, don’t get it twisted. Paulina doesn’t want us to believe that she hasn’t been freshened up in the past. She’s a model and every now and then they go in for a tune-up. But Paulina admits her beauty maintenance is a hybrid of aging naturally and still having a few things done to maintain her beauty.

“I’d like to strike a balance between being proud to look my age and still get to feel pretty at times. In my job, I’m faced with my own face in almost unnatural detail – and although I have come to accept most of it, I still have a rough time accepting it all,” she wrote.

Listen, Paulina, you keep doing whatever it is you’re doing to fight off the ravages of time because it’s working. And as for that plastic surgeon I’m sure they could use a little freshening up themselves since most plastic surgeons look like colorless versions of Shrek.
