Screen icon Marilyn Monroe has long been celebrated for her legendary looks and sex appeal but was it natural? Medical files proving that international film star Marilyn Monroe underwent cosmetic surgery including on her nose and chin are to be sold at auction to the highest bidder.
Next month, in November, the famous auction house Julien’s (based out of Beverly Hills) will be selling off the late actress’s medical records. The records will entail details of Monroe’s medical reports and concerns from 1950 to 1962, key years in the life of the troubled celebrity and actress. Reuters reports that the transaction is expected to receive big business with monetary estimates being between 15,000 to 30,000 dollars.
The medical bills package will comprise of X-rays of Marilyn Monroe’s nasal bones and frontal facial bones that were taken after the actress sustained a late night-fall in June of 1962, a mere two months before her premature death at the age of 36. At the time of the X-ray, a radiologist purportedly noted that there was no physical damage to her nose but, according to recent Reuters reports, a new medical evaluation solicited by the Beverly Hills Julien’s auction house shows that a small fracture was present in the tip of the nose. This would corroborate with noted Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Norman Leaf who described in his memoir that Marilyn Monroe had, in his words, “a slight rhinoplasty.”
While most of the details on Marilyn Monre still have not been disclosed, new revelations are being brought into light. Records from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Michael Gurdin give credence and confirm that the icon had a chin implant, which has previously only been speculated about. According to a recent article in Vanity Fair, Dr. “Gurdin referred to a 1950 cartilage implant in Monroe’s chin, which he wrote had begun to dissolve—a discovery he apparently made after the actress complained of ‘a chin deformity.’”
The seller of these culturally priceless records, who has incidentally chosen to remain anonymous, obtained the reports as a presents from Dr. Gurdin, who passed away in 1994. The X-rays indicate that doctors employed an alias for Marilyn–Joan Newman. The records also put to rest Monroe’s contested height and weight. According to them, Monroe was 5 foot six inches and 115 pounds.
