Marc Summers Has Reconstructive Cosmetic Surgery After Accident
Food Network star Marc Summers underwent four hours of plastic surgery last month, but the 60-year-old wasn’t getting a facelift or nose job. The host of ‘Unwrapped’ was actually involved in a serious car accident after filming an episode of ‘Restaurant Impossible’ in Philadelphia, when his taxi hydroplaned during a torrential downpour and the driver lost control of the vehicle. As a result, Summers was slammed into the plastic partition between the front and back of the cab. Summers was on the phone with his supervising producer before the accident occurred, but he has no recollection of the moment of impact.
According to Summers, everything on the left side of his face from his eye socket down was “wiped out” in the accident, and he is still having trouble seeing out of his left eye. “There’s lots of titanium and screws in my face,” the talk show host said. “I was pretty lucky that I didn’t have brain damage.” Also lucky for Summers, a plastic surgeon got to work on his face right away and afterwards told the TV personality that he was able to piece him together properly.
Summers’ face apparently suffered significant damage in the accident, and he is still in pain, but he expects to look the same as he did before the accident, once the swelling goes down. “In a few weeks, the swelling will go down and no one will ever know…I’ll be a new guy.” Who knows, maybe the plastic surgeon snuck in a couple subtle nips and tucks here and there during Summers’ procedure, just to give his face a little sprucing up. We’ll find out once the swelling goes down!
