Is something wrong with Janice Dickinson?

The Drunken Stepfather blog (NSFW) showed this photo of Janice Dickinson with a crooked mouth. While this is most likely just the expression she was making, it also resembles the appearance of a person who suffered a nerve injury during a facelift or liposuction of the jawline. In these situations, the nerve that causes the lip to pull down can become damaged, creating a crooked smile or frown. In 99% of cases this spontaneously resolves, usually within a few months, but can be permanent in extremely rare cases. This type of nerve injury is one of the most dreaded complications of a facelift. (Knock on wood) I've never seen one that was permanent, and am always vigilant to do everything I can to avoid it.

Hopefully, for Janice's and her surgeon's sake she's just looking silly for the paparazzi...

Thanks to the CosmeticSurgeryTruth blog for the link.

Thanks for reading.

I hope so, but Janice's expression is really difficult to imitate without a damaged nerve... The entire low left side in the photo looks paralyzed, not just the mouth.

Any opinions on the recent Madonna photos?

That really looks like paralysis; one side of her face is completely slack. This woman should have stopped with the surgery a while back.. said...

"Is something wrong with Janice Dickinson?"

Yes, but there's only so much time in a day - can we talk about what ISN'T wrong with Janice Dickinson?
