Peter Boyles wasn't stricken by flesh-eating bacteria, but KHOW host's new face isn't pretty

A few months back, we shared photos of KHOW talk-show host Peter Boyles following a face lift, and he was very pleased with the results. Too bad that only a short time later, Boyles came down with a wicked case of cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection that made him extremely ill and caused his new mug look a lot less pretty. So... is the bacteria the flesh-eating kind? He says "no."

Moreover, Boyles insists that the plastic surgery wasn't a factor in the infection.

"I asked that question," he notes. "But I got the plastic surgery on September 8, and if I was going to get sick, it would have hit immediately. It was too long ago for that."

Instead, he suspects the ailment took root after he broke his shoulder on December 21 following a run-in with a snowboarder. He began to feel ill shortly after the procedure but tried to shrug it off for nine or ten days, until he could ignore it no longer.

"When I was a little boy, I had scarlet fever," he recalls, "and this is the sickest I've been since then. The whole side of my face swelled up, my neck swelled up, and stuff was running out of the sores -- weeping, they call it."

When Boyles returned to work late last week, he still wasn't a picture of health. His producer, Greg Hollenback, jokes that the host reminded him of the Mike Myers character Goldmember thanks to the way his face was flaking. But in the days since then, his health has improved.

"I'm on the mend," he says. "I go back for a check-up tomorrow, and if I get the green light, I'm going to start working out again."

Below, see photos of Boyles's face-lift:

A lot of of the things you assert is astonishingly legitimate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn't looked at this with this light previously. This piece truly did switch the light on for me as far as this issue goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually one particular factor I am not too comfortable with so while I try to reconcile that with the main theme of your point, permit me observe just what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Well done.

No, Peter, you've been sick your entire radio life. Say hi to Lee Atwater when you see him again someday.

Boyles now looks like he is storing food in his jowls! Amazing what vanity does!

To Eric: Maybe, but probably not incurred for the reasons you insinuate.

To Humm: If you are so concerned with the bonifides of a talk show host, it would seem you maybe slightly interested in the hidden and fabricated bonifieds of 'your' president. Until the man without a name or country releases these 'basic' documents, he is not my President. If he should show he is Constitutionally legal and it holds, then and not a moment sooner, I will accept him as an equal.

Peter: Looking good, brother. Glad you're feeling better. Buddy, you got the light of the Candle of Liberty and it shines through everything you do. Thanks, Man!

I wish Peter Boyles a speedy recovery and we want him back as our number one host for KHOW! So sorry about your illness.

Hmmmm

I think we need to get his birth certificate. He doesn't look like he's from our planet.

Make you a bet he would post his real original Certificate online. Some other guy just can't seem to do the same. I started as a skeptic, but as this drags on what the ???? is being hid?
