This is probably going to come as a complete surprise, but some people are now suggesting that Madonna may have actually had a little work in the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards last Sunday. Shocking, isn't it? Next thing you know she's going to start running around town with a 22-year-old Brazilian model or something!

Unfortunately, the great medical experts ABC News consulted to get to the bottom of this perplexing mystery had some trouble figuring out what Madge did to her face exactly. One dude says it could be "sapphire abrasion" or a "vibra facial." But another says it could be "fractional resurfacing," or plain old Botox injections and microdermabrasion. Of course, Madonna's notoriously unreliable flack, Liz Rosenberg, isn't clearing things up much. "Madonna has always had gorgeous skin," she says. "It didn't just develop on Oscar night." Was someone suggesting she slipped into the bathroom at the Vanity Fair party at the Sunset Tower hotel for a little touch-up? Nicely played, Liz.
