77005633A scrap has begun between the media and actress Megan Fox following rumours that she had undergone Botox treatments and had lip fillers. The 25-year-old hit back at journalists who suggested she looked as though she had had Botox and that her lips looked suspiciously plump, by posting an album of images on Facebook featuring her frowning and raising her eyebrows. Fox entitled the album Things You Cant Do When Youve Had Botox and clearly thought this stunt would put the rumours to bed once and for all, but sceptics have hit back asking whether the apparent wrinkles were in fact computer-generated.Other views from cosmetic surgeons and doctors include the suggestion that her face shows signs of Botox that is beginning to wear off, rather than one that has never been treated with the substance. Plastic surgeon and blogger Dr Nicholas Vendemia, wrote: Looks like Megan is just as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment. Those lines on her forehead are totally fake. Muscles in the forehead and brow simply dont create curved wrinkles like that. The wrinkles Megan is showing us dont coincide with brow anatomy, nor do they match the facial expression she is making. Dr Vince Afsahi, a dermatologist based in America, agrees: The photo looks altered. The muscles in the forehead do not usually create an arc-like pattern seen in the photo. Anatomically [it] does not make sense. And dermatologic surgeon Dr. David Sire of Fullerton is also sceptical. He said: I have never seen the frontalis [forehead] muscle do this unless the muscle was surgically cut. It appears as if she is frowning and elevating her brow at the same time. Quite a feat!
