(Newser) – “When all else fails and you long to be / Something better than you are today.” Sound familiar, Madonna? The Queen of Pop seems to be looking better these days, notes ABC News. Has she had work done? Nothing surgical, say experts, but just about everything else. “It looks like she had a sapphire abrasion or a vibra facial,” says one doctor. That, plus a heap of Botox for her eyebrows and nose.

And that’s enough, one expert says. “Hopefully, she’ll maintain at this point and not do more,” says Suzan Obazi of the University of Pittsburgh’s Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Health Center. “That’s what happened with Priscilla Presley—she kept putting more and more volume in her face and now has some severe side effects. Madonna should stop here.”

She's had Botox, which gives her that nice, flared eyebrow. In the older photo, her eyebrows are almost horizontal. In the new one, they're arching up. That's a tell-tale sign. - Dr. Bruce Katz, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine's Juva Skin and Laser Clinic
