Twenty-five years have gone by in the blink of an eye since “Sex and the City” premiered in 1998.
The stars (and characters) of the hit HBO romantic comedy series — Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis — have seemingly aged gracefully in the last two decades.
But New York-based plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Westreich has claimed that some of the actors successfully preserved their visages with Botox and fillers, rather than full-on nips and tucks.
“Their fans will see that these women have aged very well over 20 years,” he told the Sun recently.
Westreich believes that the famous foursome has “probably spent up to $320,000” on Botox and fillers to help prevent wrinkles.
Parker, 58, has portrayed the main character — fashion-loving but unlucky-in-love relationship columnist Carrie Bradshaw — since the pilot episode and into the show’s sequel movies and current spinoff series, “And Just Like That.”
Westreich thought that the “Failure to Launch” star probably didn’t get any cosmetic surgery; however, he left open that she could have received a nose job.
“But [if] she has had a nose job, she should request a return,” he declared.
He also suggested that she could have undergone lip filler injections but didn’t go “very heavy on Botox,” while additionally speculating that lip filler was possible.
“I think she is aging well and does not really have a lot of skin laxity problems or a ton of deep wrinkles,” the physician noted, adding that she could have spent about $4,000 per year over the last 20 years.
Parker appeared on Howard Stern’s radio program last month and opened up about not getting plastic surgery when she was younger.
“You know, I missed out on the facelift,” she said. “Like an old-fashioned good one that you have when you’re, like, 44.”
Meanwhile, Cattrall, 66 — a k a Samantha Jones — apparently has had “progressive filler,” according to the doctor.
But the “Glamorous” and “How I Met Your Father” star did not get a full-on facial operation, he guessed.
“Kim is starting to develop a filler face, where it is starting to look swollen,” he said of the “Mannequin” actress. “She has probably had the most filler out of her co-stars.”
Cattrall defended her use of Botox and injections in a June interview with the UK Sunday Times.
“I’m in my 60s now, and I’m all about battling aging in every way I can,” she said. “There are fillers, Botox, there’s so many things that you can investigate and try and see if it’s for you.”
Westreich alleged that Cattrall could have spent around $5,000 on filler and Botox annually over two decades.
As for 57-year-old Nixon, who portrays tough lawyer Miranda Hobbes, Westreich suggested that she might have had Botox, even though “she has never really had terrible wrinkles on her forehead.”
He stated that the Emmy, Grammy and Tony winner could have done a little work in her “frown area between the eyebrows and to her crow’s feet.”
Charlotte York portrayer Davis, meanwhile, has confessed to using Botox and fillers on her forehead and other parts of her face in the past.
According to Westreich, Davis, 58, had her injections dissolved and welcomed Botox consistently throughout the decades.
“She definitely had rhinoplasty when she was younger and before she got famous,” the doctor also claimed. “Kristin is not doing as much as Kim but definitely doing more than the other two [Parker and Nixon].”
The “Couple’s Retreat” actress has dropped about $5,000 each year for two decades, he suggested.
Davis previously spoke out against the bullying she faced regarding her cosmetic procedures, recalling that she was “ridiculed relentlessly” by online trolls for using fillers and saying she has “shed tears about it. It’s very stressful.”
“It’s hard to be confronted with your younger self at all times,” Davis told the Telegraph on June 10.
“And it’s a challenge to remember that you don’t have to look like that,” she added. “The internet wants you to — but they also don’t want you to. They’re very conflicted.”
Davis went on to reveal that doing fillers has been both “good” and “bad” for her.
