Lyn May has long established herself as a well-known performer in Mexico and Latin America, particularly since diving into her profession at a young age.
Keeping this in mind, it is no mystery that Lyn May flourished as an actress for several years; yet, the popularity and stardom faded with time, which ultimately invited the urge for plastic surgery.
On numerous instances, the star admitted she was scared of aging which might have led to her desire to get plastic surgery, in an effort to embrace eternal youth. Well, things didn’t go as planned as the operation triggered a dramatic change in her life, for the worse.
As her success dwindled with time, the actress decided to have her face worked on in order to revitalize herself, and to achieve this, she asked the doctor to perform the most appropriate procedure. Unfortunately, Lyn could never have imagined how her life would alter due to the deformity of her face.
The Mexican starlet was allegedly injected with baby oil during a purported cheekbone operation, which destroyed and disfigured her face, more so as time passed, due to her facial traits. When she noticed the issue, she resorted to different surgical operations to fix it, but it was to not much avail.
While Lyn May struggled to retain her previous face, she did the best she could and accepted the consequences of her eagerness to get plastic surgery. Now, she does not care for the opinions of the harsh critics.
The actress said,
I don’t turn back anymore, for nothing else I have learned that I have to live what suits me in order to be happy and positive despite adversity, because I have accepted myself for who I am.
Fair play to this legendary woman!

There is a definitely positive change, her face looks less inflamed and with slightly smaller cheekbones. I think you have to be a little more human with her and send her many blessings so that she continues to recover, even if little by little.
Others thought she didn’t look better in her face, but they agreed that she has a lovely figure.
There is not much change, but you also have to remember that the lady already had a very damaged face and apart is already old, but it is not necessary deny that he still has a great body that many already want.
