On May 8, 1964, Melissa Ellen Gilbert was born in Los Angeles, California. She is an American actress, writer, and producer, primarily in film and television. Gilbert is best known as a child actress who starred as Laura Ingalls Wilder, on the NBC series Little House on the Prairie (1974–1984).
As an adult, she has a long list of acting, voicework, writing, producing, and directing credits. Gilbert also served two terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild. On June 9, 2009 her autobiography, Prairie Tale: A Memoir, was released. She is also known for providing the original voice of Batgirl in Batman: The Animated Series.
Melissa Gilbert looks great for her age which causes some speculations that she underwent several plastic surgery procedures to maintain her image. The rumors are mentioning various procedures from breast augmentation to Botox injections.
She certainly wanted to look her best for her debut on the premiere of Dancing With The Stars this week so she ran out a bought a new face! Yes, Melissa made a quiet visit to her favorite plastic surgeon. Her face is mysteriously wrinkle free and according to Dr. Anthony Youn Melissa ‘looks like a combination of aging and some plastic surgery.’
“Her face is surprisingly wrinkle-free for a woman her age. I suspect that she’s had some Botox to her forehead and crows feet, effectively smoothing them out,” he exclusively told Radar.
“She may also have had some filler injections like Restylane to the deep creases of her lower face as well. Overall her face looks longer than before, a likely combination of aging and some plastic surgery.” Having divorced from husband Bruce Boxleitner last August after 16 years of marriage, it is understandable that Melissa would want a nip, tuck and needle-prick to feel young again now that she’s back on the market, but Dr. Youn warns that the injectables are only a temporary fix.
“Unless her face gets a Botox recharge, I bet we will see more wrinkles return over the next several months as it wears off,” he told Radar.
When her breasts are concerned it is hard to say whether there was an augmentation procedure with the images we found, since the round and upper projected look that her breast have can sometimes be achieved with the use of wonder bra, but her breasts look bigger than before, which can be caused by some weight gain or breast implants. Her breasts do not look too big, but quite fitting and proportional for her body frame.
