Kim Novak, the gorgeous star of such 1950s movie classics as "Vertigo," raised eyebrows as she presented at Sunday's Oscars. Multiple plastic surgeons have spoken out about the shocking amount of work she appears to have done.

"It's sad. Ms. Novak has apparently had silicone injections or overaggressive fat injections to her face," Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Brent Moelleken said. "Either can be disastrous and irreversible."

If the apparent fillers in Kim's face were Juvaderm, the effects could go away, Moelleken added. "Hopefully she was just overzealous with those, and didn't have fillers like silicone or ArteFill, which never go away, unfortunately."
