Clint Eastwood – Dirty Harry Cleans Up with Plastic Surgery
The American actor Clint Eastwood is known for his long career in acting, mainly playing rough-and-tumble roles, or cowboy roles as a younger man. Today, he has kept his acting career alive, and branched into directing too, which he has been very successful with winning not one but two Academy Awards in the category of Best Director. Part of keeping his face up on the big screen has been taking care of it, and it would appear that part of his regimen involves plastic surgery!
At more than 80 years of age, Clint is doing great! Many people his age are confined to rest homes or retiree communities, and he is out and about making movies and taking on challenging acting roles. Recently, he appeared to be more refreshed than usual, which is when it became apparent that he had gone under the knife. It would seem that he had a blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, in order to remove the extra skin from around his eyes.
When an octogenarian is missing hooding and loose skin around the eyes, it’s difficult to suspect anything but plastic surgery is at play. Other parts of his face have not been touched, at least not so drastically, with knife or needle (such as the drooping skin on his forehead), making the eyes stand out even more.
According to Dr. John Di Saia, it’s possible that Eastwood has also used skin resurfacing to appear younger. With all his time spent on-set, the signs of sun damage and general aging should be much more prevalent.
Overall, the procedures have been a success as he has improved his look without taking on the feminine appearance that can sometimes come with male plastic surgery. What do you think, were his surgeries a success? Check out his before and after photos to decide for yourself!
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 Eastwood on the Oscars campaign trail for his film have shown possible signs of plastic 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.”
