Melanie Griffith

Melanie Griffith is an Oscar-nominated actress for the movie “Working Girl”, as well as a successful film producer.

She has appeared in countless films such as “Body Double”, “Something Wild”, “Mulholland Falls”, “Crazy in Alabama”, as well as the television series about (good and) bad plastic surgery, “Nip/Tuck”.

Melanie Griffith - did she get plastic surgery (image hosted by was born on August 9, 1957, in New York City. Her mother is actress Tippi Hedren, best-known as the lead actress in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”.

Her ex-husbands include actors Don Johnson and Steven Bauer. She is currently married to actor/producer, Antonio Banderas.

Always known as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, it has also been long-rumored that Melanie Griffith has been a frequent visitor to the plastic surgeon’s office.

But has Melanie Griffith actually gone under the knife and had plastic surgery?

Melanie Griffith – Multiple Plastic Surgeries?

Many people believe Melanie Griffith has had multiple plastic surgery operations since she began her acting career.

These include multiple face lifts, facial fillers, dermabrasion, breast augmentation, lip augmentation, and liposuction. Some gossip columnists routinely refer to her “trout mouth”, which is the syndrome where collagen, injected into the lips to fill out wrinkles, is overused and makes the lips stick out like fish lips.

But simply because she has overly-full lips does not necessarily mean that she paid to go the typical celeb plastic surgery route to “have them done.”

Melanie Griffith is not the only celebrity people wonder about. One of the most common internet searches lately is regarding the buttocks of Kim Kardashian!

When Did Melanie Have Cosmetic Surgery?

Everyone changes as they age, so when a celebrity’s appearance doesn’t change that’s when peoples’ antennae go up.  Melanie Griffith looks much the same as she did today as when she made “Working Girl” back in the 80’s.

For someone living on the ski slopes of Aspen, Colorado where the constant wind and sun can do heavy damage to the skin, some might argue that this is virtually impossible!

If Melanie Griffith had plastic surgery as it has long been rumored, it may be because she doesn’t find herself attractive and is driven to change her appearance and try to become more beautiful.

This might shine a light on why she feels the need to continue on with multiple procedures, if that is what is happening. She once said, “I don’t think I’m beautiful. When I look in the mirror, I just see me – and, I’m pretty used to me.”

Will She Have More Surgery?

If you speak to her current husband, Antonio Banderas, the answer may be clear.

When asked about his wife having plastic surgery, he said, “This lust for beauty is a terrible thing. I`ve forbidden her from ever going to a cosmetic surgeon again. It is something we have agreed to for the sake of our marriage.

Melanie Griffith before after photos (image hosted by Banderas is afraid his wife will eventually go down the path of awful celebrity plastic surgery with the likes of former Playmate Shannon Tweed, Mickey Rourke, or “The Cat Lady” Jocelyn Wildenstein.

Possibly Banderas was simply making a joke or poking fun of his wife’s insecurities about her appearance.

Regardless, her appearance does show striking similarities to those celebrities who have admitted to having had plastic surgery.

Either way, look at pictures of Melanie Griffith today and in the past – you be the judge!


  1. LOL……LOL………LOL

    • rachel bird says:

      when Melanie Griffith’s horse rode her through a clothes line (when she was a teenager) Melanie almost lost her life because her neck and face was caught in the line. She is lucky to be alive and knows this and she was likely forced to have plastic surgery to recover. I admire her courage and look forward to her shining future.

  2. I saw her on the 10 most ugly women of Hollywood, looks more like Jane Fonda now. Definitely looks much older than her years.

    • you would be an ugly person no matter what you looked like.

      • Mareesa says:

        That is so immature to lash out at someone who is expressing their opinion. This is not a communist country where you are attacked for expressing ones perspective. Fact is, sadly there are actors or non actors alike who choose the wrong plastic surgeon and/or go to often. Its like an addiction because they do not feel good inside. Melanie admitted to not liking her reflection. I wish she could see her inner beauty and had been able to see her outer beauty. A little bit of plastic surgery performed by a talented doctor would have helped her maintain graceful beauty as many other actors have chosen well. Hopefully she can still get corrective work done.

    • I saw her om Hawaii 5.0 and I didn’t recognize her . she was hideous. she use to be beautiful now she looks like an older women they have her as james caan’s mother. she needs to get another good plastic surgeon and make her beautiful again. what a shame a plastic surgeon could do that to someone

  3. Jane Fonda’s plastic surgery doesn’t look anything like Melanie’s. What I don’t understand, is how these people, with soooo much money put their livelihood on the line by going to such poor plastic surgeons. They have the ability to get the best there is, and they come out looking horribly. What are they thinking?

    • I agree Susan. They have access to the best. Plastic surgery is so important and there are so many very good plastic surgeons that it is strange some get such horrible results. I think her surgeries destroyed her marriage to Antonio. Too bad, he was a great catch.

  4. She was never a beauty to begin with. It’s a real mystery as to how she landed all her good-looking husbands.

    • In her prime, Melanie was drop-dead gorgeous. By all accounts she was equally beautiful inside. I presume the inside is still lovely, but Mel has done serious damage to the exterior with this plastic surgery garbage. She should have left well enough alone and aged gracefully.

  5. You guys are all cruel. Melanie is a kind gentle and attractive soul. She looks her age and who are we all to say there would not be lots of bad pictures of us out there when we do not look or feel our best. Lighten up

    • Mareesa says:

      She truly does not look her age. Compare her to her mom and her mom looks better. Compare her to many other nordic fair skinned woman and she looks much older and very plastic. I love Melanie Griffith and always a favorite of mine. I feel so bad that she did not get a good plastic surgeon. I am sad to hear her and Antonio breaking up.

    • Thank u terry, u r right, people can be cruel, the ones who make nasty remarks on others, need to look in the mirror beauty is in the eye of the beholder…….

  6. Rivertreasure says:

    Melanie is beautiful, no matter what she does. Hopefully she will embrace the passage of time and walk through the open door to be able to go on and make more great movies as a mature woman in character roles. Hollywood has thrown her out to the curb for now. That is sad because she brought many roles to life for us, in the movies. I am a huge Melanie Griffith fan.

  7. E-Gads!!!! Now that’s scarey………such a shame……..I’m watching Hawaii five-o
    and she’s on the show and looks terrible!!!!!!!!!

  8. Lilly Grabowski says:

    I thought she looked much better before plastic surgery. I recently seen her on Hawaii Five O. She is beautiful but looks older than her years.

  9. I think she’s elegant, beautiful. & has a beautiful smile. Her eyes sparkle when she smiles. No one has the rite to judge her. I love all of her movies. As a regular women I get Botox, restlin & microbrasion. Their is nothing wrong with freshing up a bit @a plastic surgeons office. I had my breast done. I workout & take care of myself. Meline your perfect. &your Husband & you are perfect togeather. Your chemistry is remarkable. Don’t ever listen to negative comments. Only let the positive in. Be happy & keep smiling. Your perfect!

  10. She looks terrible !Has any one seen Dolly Parton lately?? She must have used the same surgeon than Kenny Rogers,they both look terrible.

  11. If the rumors are true that Antonio was always cheating no wonder she kept trying to chase perfection

  12. I have always been a fan, but was shocked at the drastic change in her appearance.
    Her surgery has made her look so unnatural and unattractive. Plastic surgery
    seems to be a game of Russian roulette. It’s not worth the risk because so
    many stars come out looking horrible.

  13. I don’t think it has anything to do with a Plastic surgeon being bad, I just think it is the luck of the draw how you adapt to the surgery.
    I feel really sorry for all these beautiful people (men & women) who want to look better than they do, and usually they look pretty good
    anyway. I think it a Hollywood thing and now creeping into society.

    Melanie for shame you look horrible. Shame to spoil what was once really pretty.
