Hunter Tylo’s Bold and Not So Beautiful Plastic Surgery Transformation
If you’ve ever seen the dramatic daytime soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, you may recognize actress Hunter Tylo, who has played Dr. Taylor Hayes since the 90s. Or, you may not recognize her, as a series of cosmetic surgery procedures gone bad have distorted her looks almost beyond recognition.
After undergoing what appears to have been excessive lip injections, Botox, a facelift, nose job and cheek implants, Tylo has gone from natural beauty to plastic surgery nightmare in recent years. Her overly-inflated lips, frozen smile and unnaturally smooth skin are so obvious in fact, that the actress’ radical transformation has prompted even well-known plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Youn, to recommend Tylo “leave her face alone for a while.” You know it’s bad when a cosmetic surgeon urges you to stay away.
The 49-year-old actress recently stepped out on the red carpet at the 52nd Monte Carlo TV festival, and, while most actresses draw gasps for their stunning red-carpet attire, Hunter Tylo’s new face was the topic of conversation for the evening. If anyone had wanted to interview the former Melrose Place actress, it probably would have been difficult for her to answer, being the skin on her face has been pulled so tight her face features a permanent look of surprise. Or maybe that was genuine surprise that she could actually arrange her face in a smile to pose for The Bold and the Beautiful cast photos.
We get it. Undergoing plastic surgery is as normal as applying makeup for most Hollywood stars today, and Hunter Tylo didn’t want to fall behind on the cosmetic surgery merry-go-round. Unfortunately, while Tylo probably thought her cosmetic surgery procedures would preserve her youth and make her more beautiful, the botched jobs have only made her look unnatural and unattractive. Even though it’s not surprising that yet another actress has fallen victim to excessive cosmetic surgery, it’s almost frightening to see how a nip here and a tuck there has so dramatically altered Hunter Tylo’s once-famous face. As The Bold and the Beautiful celebrates 25 years, you have to admit, Hunter’s plastic surgery transformation certainly is bold. But beautiful? Not so much.
