Madonna's Black Eyes - Plastic Surgery?

Madonna was recently photographed with two black eyes, as shown on this photo. The current In Touch Weekly magazine has my comments on it, but I will also offer them here.

The most common cause of black eyes like this is trauma. Most people who are assaulted can get one black eye, but when the base of the skull is broken (such as in a bad car crash) then both eyes can often become black. Now, I seriously doubt she's been in a car crash or physically assaulted, so the next most likely culprit is surgery.
Lower blepharoplasty surgery is the most common cause of bruising under both eyes, as seen in this photo. While I saw this quite commonly with the traditional technique, the newer transconjunctival blepharoplasty (hidden scar) often doesn't create bruising.
Other common causes of bruising like this include rhinoplasty, facial fat grafting, and Restylane, Juvederm, or Sculptra injections under the eyes. Take your pick. I guess we'll see how she looks in the near future.

A bleph with outside incisions makes sense because she didn't have fat pads to be removed, probably just some excess skin to be tightened and that isn't achieved with the subcutaneous techniques.

I'd love to know what she had done to acheive that jawline.

Probably this look is because lower blepharoplasty surgery. I see it very often here in Spain, where use of plastic surgery is growing fast.
