49-year-old Melanie Griffith was photographed on a shopping trip looking rather freakish. The actress does not turn 50 until August, but is showing signs of aging beyond her years. Melanie has admitted to having several cosmetic procedures completed, including a facelift. It has been reported that Melanie has avoide surgery concerning her knees under the advisement of her husband, Antonio Banderas.
Harley Street plastic surgeon Apostolos Gaitanis explains the difficulty of knee surgeries:
"The knees are a huge problem area for women because the skin is thin and so ages badly. Factors like weight loss can also take their toll on the area.
"But a knee lift is a complicated procedure with a high level of scarring and so lots of women are reluctant to go under the knife."
