Has Mena Suvari had Plastic Surgery?
From being a model to being an actress, and from being at the peak of her career to still trying to keep up in the show business, Suvari is one fierce lady. Known for her sex appeal, the actress now faces questions of plastic surgery as her physical appearance has also experienced notable changes throughout the years. During her younger years, Suvari was fresh-faced, her eyes radiant and smile captivating. It doesn’t seem to be the case in the present.
Apart from the fact that she has aged (she’s in her late 30s now), some are also considering plastic surgery to be the cause of the said transformation. Maybe the American Pie actress underwent cosmetic procedures that ended up being a regret on her part. Sure, she still looks beautiful but something about her is not the same. For one, she doesn’t have any wrinkles or any other lines on her face, which makes the possibility of Botox even higher, considering she’s also on the age where women consider such alternatives to conceal signs of aging.
