Clint Eastwood Plastic Surgery Facelift and Eyelid Before and After

What's wrong with Clint Eastwood's face?
What’s wrong with Clint Eastwood’s face? He’s not in front of the camera anymore, so adjustments are not necessary. His eyes look red and extra squinty even though he isn’t squinting. His face looks too mask like as well. This new look of his is not an improvement. His eyes seriously look off kilter in a crazy way.
Clint Eastwood may be known for his rugged looks and badass charm, but after the 2007 Golden Globe awards, rumors milled about the "Dirty Harry" star’s possible eyelid surgery and laser skin resurfacing. Wrinkles and sun damage no doubt brought on by his extensive time outdoors while filming such classic Westerns as "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" and "Unforgiven" abruptly seemed to fade, although, as one plastic surgeon told MSNBC, “There is no obvious evidence of it.” Eastwood himself has condemned the ever-increasing use of cosmetic surgery by saying, “Plastic surgery used to be a thing where older people would try to go into this dream world of being 28 years old again. But now, in Hollywood, even people at 28 are having work done. Society has made us believe you should look like an 18-year-old model all your life. But I figure I might as well just be what I am.”

Clint Eastwood Still A Tough Guy After Plastic Surgery
Clint Eastwood’s directing career is getting better with age, as he is easily one of the best directors of our time. The former “Dirty Harry” actor, who already won the Best Directing Oscar twice is nominated again this year for Letters From Iwo Jima. Despite Eastwood’s tough guy persona and rugged image, even he is not immune to the need to keep up his looks. Recent pictures of Clint Eastwood on the Oscars campaign trail for his film have shown possible signs of plastic surgery.

Clint Eastwood, Eyelid Surgery Eastwood’s lack of excess sagging skin around his eyes is uncharacteristic of a man of 76, suggesting a potential blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Fellow Oscars coverage member plastic surgeon Anthony Youn says, “I do think that at some time in the past Clint has had his upper eyelids lifted. Notice how his brow is excessively droopy, yet he does not seem to have hooding or excessive skin of his upper eyelids. For a man his age, this is somewhat unusual.” Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia had a different postulation, thinking that Eastwood had laser skin resurfacing. “It looks like Clint Eastwood may have received some much needed skin care…probably laser re-surfacing by the looks of these images,” said Dr. Di Saia in his blog. Dr. Youn disagrees, saying “I do not think he has had laser treatments, since his face does show significant age and sun damage.”
Eastwood’s alleged makeover is so remarkably subtle that it has not changed his overall masculine and rugged look. This is a true sign of great plastic surgery artistry, as the change is undetectable and has not left Eastwood looking surprised or unnatural. “It was a nice job though, since it hasn’t left him looking unusual or effeminate. Plastic surgeons must be careful when performing procedures like this on men, since these same procedures have been usually developed about the female face. He is a good example of plastic surgery which helps someone look better but doesn’t take away the essence of who the person is (in Clint’s case, a tough guy),” says Youn.

Clint Eastwood is a veteran actor in his 80s so it’s no wonder he wants to look good. Although it’s harder to prove with him, it appears he has had a number of procedures done to make his face look a little more youthful.

He has had blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) which lifts his skin right above the eyes so they don’t look like leather. His eyebrow droops quite a lot but there isn’t a lot of excess skin above his eyelid which is unusual for a man of his age. This means he doesn’t have the “hooded eye look.”

Other procedures may have included chemical peels, chemical chemotherapy and laser skin resurfacing which all help to reduce the number of lines and wrinkles on the face. This is also helpful for bad sun damage and skin cancer.

Despite this information, there’s still speculation that he may or may not have had laser treatment. One expert says that Clint’s face shows too much signs of aging to have had laser treatment.

The positive fact about Clint Eastwood and the facial work he has had done is that it hasn’t made him look fake. It has worked remarkably well to remove specific problems while still making sure his face looks natural. To a man like him, this is a critical part of his macho image. He’s not a man who would want the world to think he has a “plastic face.” It also wouldn’t suit this ruggedly handsome man who can still give the younger actors a run for their money in the looks department
