Burton Leon “Burt” Reynolds, popularly known as Burt Reynolds, is an American producer, director and actor. During his hey days, he was the young, burly and handsome man loved by all. However, Burt Reynolds plastic surgery rumors haven’t escaped his celebrity life. So confident was he with his body that he even posed nude for The Cosmopolitan Man in April 1972. Burt was associated with a number of women in his early career, the most notable one being Sally Field. Recently, he has admitted that she is ‘the one that got away’ and his true love. He has been in two marriages: with Judy Carne (1963-1965) and Loni Anderson (1988-1993). Anderson and Reynolds have an adopted son. Just like most celebrities, Reynolds went under the knife so as to make his looks better as he was aging. Nonetheless, as seen in the before and after plastic surgery photos, he would have done much better without the cosmetic surgery.
For someone who has graced the screens for centuries, Burt Reynolds still has a youthful look. His first audition was for the film ‘Angel Baby’ in 1961. Later on in 1997, he also acted in ‘Boogie Nights’. This can tell you how he has managed to stay relevant over the years. In February 2005, Reynolds had a major change in his appearance. There was the major weight loss as well as other changes attributed plastic surgery.
He was very defiant as to whether he had a facelift. He was quoted attributing his good looks and smooth skin to the good genes he got from his father. He also claimed that the change in his appearance was caused by a fight scene in one of his movies. However, later on, he could not openly deny the evident change in his looks. He has been famously quoted as saying “You can only hold your stomach in for so many years”. This means that he is open to having plastic surgery as it can help one achieve what they cannot do naturally. At his age, he is wrinkle-free and has the looks of someone half his age. This makes him look unnatural. The change is clearly visible in the photos of Reynolds facelift as seen below:
Blepharoplasty Plastic Surgery and eyelid surgery
It is usually said that the eyes are the window to one’s soul. Also, the eyes can tell if one is a young soul or an old soul. It is highly likely that Burt had the Blepharoplasty surgical procedure, which removes the fat of the eyes. His eyes are so full of life and do not give away any hint of the age that was once catching up with him real fast. The skin around Reynold’s forehead and eyes is visibly smoother in his later years, which is unexpected as one ages. Burt’s eye surgery is evidenced by how his once dull eyes are now so bright and very alert.
Reynold’s nose job
It is likely that he had rhinoplasty as before plastic surgery, his nose was wide. In his later years, his nose seems to be more refined and thinner, giving away Reynolds nose job.
Does Burt deny of undergoing any procedure?
The celebrity may have denied it but he has taken additional procedures so as to keep his look fresh and relevant. This is essential for his career and celebrity lifestyle. It is likely that he worked on his cheeks. They were once round and at some point sagging due to old age. However, as seen in photos of after surgery, his cheeks are uplifted and very firm. This is not how most of the people his age usually look like. His smile is almost the same over the years and his lips give away that something was done so as to maintain his trademark smile. Therefore, it is likely that Reynolds had fillers on both his lips and cheeks.
Reynold’s plastic surgery may have changed him but that does not change the fact that we still love this man. He should have known what would have worked well for him so as to give him a natural look. Yes, we agree that he is old but the signs of aging are not visible. However, his plastic surgery was a botched one as it gave him a plastic look. In his attempt to ‘keep it all together’, he lost the good looks he once had and that we loved.
