Meg Ryan

Meg Ryan turned 50 in 2011 and she is definitely among the candidates of worst plastic surgery in Hollywood.

When she gained fame in 1980, Meg Ryan was certainly among the most beautiful ladies ever to set foot on the big stage.  Her innocent and charming looks were often compared to Madonna.

Born on November 19, 1961, Meg had a passion for acting, which made her popular in minor roles in CBS Soap Operas of the 1980s.

The talent radiated in the 1989 romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally, which led to Meg Ryan‘s nomination for the Golden Globe award.

Meg Before Plastic Surgery

Until 1996, Meg prevailed over Hollywood screens for almost a decade before she made a supposedly horrible decision to enter into the gloomy world of celebrity plastic surgery.

Here’s a video showing what she used to look like in her younger days. (image hosted by

In fact, critics of Meg claim that bad plastic surgery is the sole reason for the rapid decline of the actress.

Some critics are even bold enough to suggest that the only role that Meg will ever find is of a Joker in a Batman series.

Before & After Comparison…

Followers of Meg Ryan may shun these remarks as baseless but a comparison of before and after pictures of the actress reveals a massive difference between her present features and the beauty that once Meg was.

The obvious change is lip implants that most experts think are due to GoreTex technique that enhances lip muscles. Another cheeky feature is the modified cheeks that seem to have undergone volumetric facelift (see facelift without cosmetic surgery) as a result of fat grafting.

Despite her age, it is also noticeable that Meg has no sagging skin making her susceptible of undergoing neck-lift and forehead procedures. It will not be an overstatement to suggest that Meg has not been able to hide anything at all.

Don’t Miss This Video Morph

The following video morph raises some interesting questions too.  Signs of a plastic surgery disaster perhaps?

Critics point out to slanted and stretched back eyes that are seemingly pulled up.

Also, Meg was never famous for exposing her upper body but there are plenty of rumors of breast implantation. So far, Meg has not publicly claimed that she ever had a plastic surgery but there seem to be few media moguls willing to interview her.

Despite her amazing transformation, there are plenty of Meg fans who still love the actress for what she was. (image hosted by

Honestly, it appears that Meg has been under the knife so many times that few will take her word on plastic surgery.

Whatever the debate, it seems that Meg Ryan’s plastic surgery is a gloomy chapter out of Hollywood books marking the end of a career for another Hollywood great.

So it appears that Meg Ryan may have had plastic surgery.

But what do you think?

    I have had my fair share of plastics over the years. Meg Ryan has not had a lot of work done. However she keeps herself emaciated, and thi may look good in front of a camera, but in real life it looks tired on anyone (think long distance runners). The larger issue is her look. She has been a charming gamine, but now is facing middle age. She needs an update, and we need to stop thinking 15 years ago.

  2. Meg Ryan certainly has had a lot of plastic surgery. It has detracted from her appearance, as is usually the case. Few women truly look better when they attempt to use surgery to look like they are decades younger. Those who use plastic surgery to enhance their appearance by removing sags and bags but avoid the extremes of implants and drastic lifts may indeed improve their looks. But women who think they are fooling anyone into thinking they are 25 when they are 50 are only fooling themselves.

  3. Its ridiculous to compare a woman at age 50 to where she was in her twenties. I am soon approaching my own 49th birthday and I WISH I could look as similar to my older photos as Meg Ryan does!!!

    Be kind about what you say to one another.. eventually the bell tolls for all.

    The last I saw of Meg Ryan, on the small screen, had me arguing with my husband that it was in fact Meg Ryan we were looking at. That is a sad statement because a little bit of help from the “guys” who wield the knife may help, but her surgeon should be in court for obscuring the face of a very good actress. I would have thought she could afford better, and if she was the one who pushed a “plastics guy” into making a mess of her looks, I feel sorry for both of them.

    Having had an invasive cancer on my nose that required removal of a quarter sized chunk of nose and more than two years of slow, reconstructive surgeries, I know what it’s like to only wish there was a way to make your face look like, well, YOUR face. Thought my surgeon was amazing, three or four years of aging after my surgeries, my face was clearly drooping asymmetrically. Though it was a result of my cancer, my insurance provider would not cover a facelift to correct the asymmetry. So I paid for it. It was worth it and now I will age in a more symmetrical manner. That is Okey-Dokey with me.

    I am not an actress, but I thoroughly understand the emotional impact of looking at yourself, in my case in the mirror, in an actor’s case, on the stage or screen, and seeing a face that does not look like what you expect.

    It is unfortunate that Meg Ryan had such an overwhelming need and her doctor’s caved-in to her insecurities. I really would have liked to see her be an older, and just as beautiful and talented an actress as she was 15 years ago while continuing to be recognizable. A little help I think is OK. Too much just makes it worse. I understand, but I feel bad for her none the less.
