Have age and stress launched a shocking attack on Madonna's face?

Dressed up to the nines and wearing plenty of make-up, Madonna still manages to look pretty sensational for a woman rapidly approaching her half century.


But bare-faced and in short sleeves, she reveals some of the gruelling health and beauty regime behind the glamour.


Madonna, seen holding hands with her daughter Lourdes as they left a Kabbalah centre in New York, wore a T-shirt which exposed the veins standing out on arms subjected to endless workouts.

Her swollen face renewed speculation that she is relying on more than yoga, the gym and a macrobiotic diet to ward off the effects of ageing.


She has remained enigmatic on the subject of cosmetic surgery, saying: 'I am certainly not against plastic surgery; however, I am absolutely against having to discuss it.'


Harley Street plastic surgeon Angelica Kavouni said: 'In my opinion, it is likely she has had filler in her cheeks because they are so full. There is no loose skin at the jawline which is also extremely unusual for someone her age. Typically, that is something we achieve through a lower facelift.

Nor does she have any loose skin around her eyes, which again is unusual.


'She always had nice eyes and high cheekbones, so if anything has been done I think she's trying to enhance her existing good parts and had some areas tightened.'


Madonna is 50 on August 16. Earlier this year a member of her circle told the Daily Mail: 'She's been having work done since her 30s, but in the past year she's really stepped it up, which is worrying.'
