Cosmetic surgery doesn’t always go smoothly. Just ask Bruce Jenner, who found that operations he had in the ’80s eventually began to make his face look not quite the way he had hoped it would.
Recently, the former Olympian and step-dad to Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian decided to put the botched job right, and turned to surgeon and skin-care specialist, Dr. Garth Fisher for help.
Not only is Dr. Fisher a family friend, but the all the Kardashian girls — including their mom, Kris — already swear by his CellCeuticals Biomedical Skin Treatments, of which Kim says: “I am in love with how these products have changed my skin!"
Here — with Bruce’s blessing — he tells OK! how they gave Bruce his looks back.
OK!: What made Bruce finally decide to fix the previous surgery and come to you?
Well, I guess he talked with his family; you know and decided that he wanted to remove a few wrinkles and move forward.
What did you do to fix the previous surgery?
He had some older techniques used and maybe done at too early of an age. I just wanted to tighten up his jaw line, his neck, move the tissues back up to the cheek area, because he’s got great cheeks and try to improve the quality of his skin.
We didn’t operate on his nose, eyes or lips.
What was wrong with the first surgery that he did?
What happens a lot of times is that people take their face lifts and surgeons will pull them back, instead of back and up. And sometimes they pull them too hard.
How do you fix that?
With facelifts, what you really want to do is have everything in harmony where it looks like it goes together. And if you just operate on one part of the face a lot of times it’s like walking in a room and painting one wall and the rest of them stand out.
Was it difficult trying to fix a botched surgery and pervious work?
It’s always difficult to do secondary surgeries; it takes a lot of time.
How do you think the look turned out?
You know what I was really happy about it and he’s really happy about it too.
What does his family think of the new look?
They loved it. They really thought it looked great.
