Screen legend and Hollywood icon, Marilyn Monroe’s famous beauty may have been in part due to cosmetic surgery, according to recently revealed medical notes and X-rays.
A file of Marilyn’s unseen doctors notes were written by cosmetic surgeon Michael Gurdin and later acquired by an anonymous friend, who has now put them up for auction.
The contents of the documents are expected to end long running speculation that Monroe went under the cosmetic surgeons knife to achieve her famous Hollywood siren image. Gurdin’s notes contain references to a cartilage implant in Monroe’s chin, which he noted appeared to be dissolving.
Monroe used the alias Miss Joan Newman during her visits to Gurdin, which appears on the paperwork alongside her address in Brentwood, California.
Gurdin’s notes are thought to confirm the rumours which circulated during the star’s life that she did indeed opt for surgery on her chin and nose.
The secret haul of medical notes and X-rays will go under the hammer at Julien’s Auctions, in Beverly Hills, California, on November 9 – 10, where they are expected to fetch between £10,000 and £20,000.
Martin Nolan, Executive director of Julien’s Auctions said: “Nobody really thought about Marilyn Monroe having cosmetic surgery. It was always speculation – did she or didn’t she? “They thought she was such a natural beauty, they didn’t want to believe.”
Today, over 60 years after Marilyn underwent cosmetic surgery, the skill, experience and safety of cosmetic surgeons has improved immeasurably.
