Celebrity News – Miss Piggy Abused Botox

How not to follow in the felt diva’s footsteps

In a recent appearance on Anderson Cooper’s talk show, famed Muppets starlet Miss Piggy spoke with Dr. Sanjay Gupta about her crippling Botox addiction.

“I’m 99% Botox,” Miss Piggy revealed to a stunned audience, “but that may be underestimating it.” Miss Piggy went on to disclose she is incapable of expressing herself facially, her expressions frozen as they are forever.

While Miss Piggy clearly went far more overboard than any non-felt patient is likely to, Dr. Gupta warned the audience about the risks of Botox abuse.

“If you use too much of it you can actually make your eyelids droop, you can cause headaches, you can cause other problems,” said Dr. Gupta. However, these affects are temporary (In humans. The same can’t be said for Muppets).

However, Botox isn’t all about side effects and risks. Botox is considered to be a safe, temporary treatment for frown lines, skin bands, crows feet and other skin imperfections. It’s a minimally invasive procedure, and may be more desirable than a full surgical facelift for those whose wrinkles are less severe.

Botox, or Botulinum Toxin, can be used by a trained professional to target any of the 43 muscles in your face, treating only the desired areas, while leaving your natural facial expressions intact. No anesthetic is needed, and there’s no recovery time needed. If you think Botox might be right for you, consult a certified plastic surgeon.
