Italo screen goddess SOPHIA LOREN is still enjoying LA DOLCE VITA – thanks to $50K worth of surgery, claims top doc.
"Sophia Loren looks amazing!" plastic surgery guru Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the tawny thesp, told RadarOnline.com. "I've never seen a 80-year-old woman look like her. Is it good genes that keep her looking so young? I strongly doubt that! I believe that she's had at least $50,000 worth of plastic surgery to keep her looking so good.
"Her jaw-line is unnaturally sharp for a near-octogenarian. This is the possible result of a well-performed facelift or two. Although her lips are plump, she doesn't sport a trout pout like some of her contemporaries. I suspect that she's had injections of a filler like Juvederm.
"It also appears that she might have undergone an upper and lower eyelid lift, to keep her eyelids refreshed-looking. Fat injections to her cheeks may have prevented her from getting the sunken look of many women her age. Laser treatments and chemical peels may also play a part in her smooth skin, in addition to some possible Botox in her forehead.
"And it's not just her face that I believe has had some work. I also think she may sport a pair of breast implants to help keep her ample-chested as she nears the twilight of her years. Because they last approximately 20 years, it's possible that she's had more than one pair.
"Overall, the film legend is keeping up really well. She certainly doesn't look like my Grandma!"
To quote film director Vittorio DeSica, Ms. Loren will remain a goddess, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow!
