Michael Jackson A 'Nasal Cripple' [Feb. 9th, 2005|09:39 pm]
Although Michael Jackson says in a new documentary that he has had only two operations on his nose, a leading plastic surgeon believes he has had so much work done that he is now a "nasal cripple."

Dr. Pamela Lipkin, a prominent plastic surgeon in New York City who has studied photographs taken of Jackson at a California court appearance in November — in which his apparently scarred nose was covered by a small transparent bandage — believes something went wrong.

"What I think happened recently is that something in his nose — a graft, an implant, something — has now come out through the skin," said Lipkin, a nasal specialist who is not Jackson's doctor and has never examined him in person. "He's really got a hole in his skin."

"Michael Jackson has what we call an end-stage nose, a crippled nose, a crucified nose — one that's beyond the point of no return," she said.

People who have had so many surgeries on their nose that it becomes hard to breathe through are called "nasal cripples," Lipkin said.

Although Jackson's face has been splashed across the tabloids in recent months, Brittan Stone, photo editor at the celebrity magazine Us, says the singer's face is not being seen on magazines.

"The one thing you can't do with Michael is a beauty shot, because that shot simply just doesn't exist anymore," Stone said. "I don't think you can put Michael Jackson's face on the full-page of a magazine…. I think the flaws in his face become a little too evident, a little too frightening. It becomes like a medical study."

Do you think he can get one of those handicap placards for that?

people's faces don't just morph like that over time. he can't possibly look like that if he has only had two nose jobs.

I saw a talk show once about people who had had too many nose jobs, and there was some pretty wierd, funky-looking stuff on there. He's surely had more than two.

Rumors suggest that he has been trying to look more and more like Diana Ross, who was his big musical influence at the hight of Motown popularity.

Going from a black guy with a fro to... well... Diana Ross... takes a lot of work.

Be the judge of it yourself.
