Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. Practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. It’s been around for a few thousand years, but comes and goes as a trend in celebrity circles. Famous folk known to use the therapy are:
Amber Heard 2017 vs 2021
As a test let’s begin by examining Amber Heard’s beauty evolution, I assumed she probably had a little work done in order to score so high with beauty algorithms. But I never would have guessed it was so extensive!
Rhinoplasty is the most common celebrity surgery, and so I was expecting to see evidence of that here. Her nose was already straight, but I think she had some extremely subtle refinements to the tip and the area beside the nostrils for a narrower, more button-like shape. (This is even more evident when her face is angled to one side, so compare her identical pose in 2009 versus 2018.)
I also believe she may have had one of the most under-the-radar procedures that celebs (like Jennifer Lawrence) are having done: blepharoplasty. This removes some excess eyelid skin, so the eyes look more wide-open.
But the most dramatic changes were to her lips, teeth and lower face. First of all, it’s obvious that she gets filler to increase the size of her upper lip, which was significantly thinner in her younger years.
Her front teeth no longer overlap her bottom lip, so she probably used something like Invisalign, along with bleaching and porcelain veneers to perfect their colour and shape.
Since it’s common to have a recessed chin when you have an overbite, she may have put filler or an implant there to bring more balance to her face. As for her lower cheeks, remember that they went from being full at age 21 to gaunt just one year later. So I suspect she had some type of fat removal there, too.
All in all, Amber may have had multiple procedures, but the outcome was undeniably positive. When we think about plastic surgery, we don’t usually think about cosmetic dentistry—but these results show you how transformative it can be! Difficult to say if she did face cupping – but it would have produced remarkable results at a fraction of the cost of surgery.
True or False Picture? Before and after Johnny Depp beating?
Hollywood star Depp is suing Heard, his ex-wife, for $50 million in lost earnings after she wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post in 2018 where she stated that she was the survivor of domestic abuse. Despite never mentioning Depp by name, his team argues that the insinuation has extensively damaged his career.
