Roger Ebert: Before and After Plastic Sugery Pics

by at . Comments

During his battle with thyroid cancer, Roger Ebert says he "studiously avoided looking in a mirror."

That's because the movie critic lost the bottom half of jaw his jaw to the disease.

But a two-year process has now resulted in a silicone prosthesis that Ebert debuted this week, one that he'll wear during upcoming TV appearances. Below, right, the veteran reporter shows off his new look:

"I will wear the prosthesis on the new television show – that's not to fool anyone, because my appearance is widely known," he says. "It will be a pleasant reminder of the person I was for 64 years."

Ebert Presents at the Movies debuts tonight on PBS. It will feature Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky reviewing films and Roger discussing new films and classics.
