Meg Ryan’s drastic change in her appearance raised many eyebrows

Meg Ryan’s Hollywood career not only encompasses various accolades, but the actress’ life has been perfectly balanced with a certain amount of controversy. Ryan once garnered media attention as rumors swirled that she had undergone plastic surgery. The media left no chance to call out the actress by various names; some outlets called her ‘Misshapen Meg’, and raised questions like “What Has Happened to Meg Ryan’s Face?”

Though the actress didn’t bother to acknowledge these claims, a plastic surgeon picked up the topic and blatantly talked about it in the media. The surgeon claimed,

“The most obvious thing that she’s had done is some sort of filler or fat transfer to her cheek. It’s definitely too much because the apple of her cheek is too full and too large.”

The expert also speculated that As the World Turns actress may have had a botox, rhinoplasty, and facelift. Another plastic surgeon, Dr. Otto Placik, said that Ryan’s process hasn’t worked in her favor, as after surgery she appears to be a completely different person.
