Joan Rivers Plastic Surgery: From Overlifted to Overfilled

Joan Rivers Bad Plastic Surgery
Joan Rivers, From Overlifted to Overfilled

Joan Rivers has been the poster child of bad plastic surgery for quite some time now.  She was one of the most overlifted individuals that anyone has ever witnessed, but I believe that she may have gone overboard in the other direction, which is overfilling. The LA Times recently stated that Joan Rivers, now 78 years old, had her 734th cosmetic procedure.

Like anything in cosmetic surgery, taste and discretion using artistic judgment are paramount when working on the sensitive nature of the face.  Just because fat grafting maybe a good thing, it certainly can be a bad thing in the wrong hands making people look overbloated, unbalanced, and unnatural.
