Madge’s $500,000 MAKEOVER!

FILTERS OR FILLERS? STAR INVESTIGAT­ES THE PRICEY EXTREMES MADONNA GOES TO IN ORDER TO LOOK YOUNGER THAN EVER.

-

TOPLESS, with just her long blonde hair covering her, Madonna posted a sexy new pic on Instagram April 3. Just one in a series that included a NSFW bathroom shoot in strappy black lingerie, the shot was captioned, “Why do I always have to explain everything.”

Yet the 62-year-old’s wrinklefre­e, poreless, ageless face demanded some kind of explanatio­n. “Filters and botox,” wrote one commenter, while another claimed “plastic surgery.” Well, a little of both, Denver-based plastic surgeon Jeffrey Schmidt, of Schmidt Facial Plastic Surgery, tells Star. “Certainly her lips are augmented relative to her younger years,” says the doctor, who has not treated the singer. “Her cheeks are fuller, likely due to fat transfers from other areas of the body, and her brows are in a youthful, elevated position, which may be due to a brow lift.” In addition, says Schmidt, at some point Madonna has probably undergone “a face and neck lift, as well as eyelid rejuvenati­on surgery.” And that’s not all: “She likely also has an excellent skincare routine, laser/ chemical peel treatments d a great retouch artist skilled in Photoshop!” All that comes at a price, and a source tells Star friends estimate the Material Girl has shelled out $500K to look so good. “In Madonna’s world, money is no object when it comes to beauty,” says the insider. (Her estimated net worth: $850 million.)

“It’s no secret Madonna spends lavishly on beauty products and skin regimens. She’s living proof that the fountain of youth is out there — if you can afford it!”
