Kim Basinger: Just How Graceful is Her Aging?
Kim Basinger plastic surgery rumors and speculations have been around almost as long as she’s been one of Hollywood’s most recognizable sex symbols.
The American actress famous for roles in movies such as Batman, 9 1/2 Weeks, and even 8th Mile has been in Hollywood for quite some time, and so have the rumors that her enduring beauty might have had a little bit of outside help.
The main rumor that seems to plague Basinger is that she’s had a facelift, but there’s still a lot of debate over whether or not she’s had something that extreme done.
Has Kim Basinger Had Plastic Surgery?
While Hollywood is plagued with bad plastic surgery stories, if Kim Basinger has had plastic surgery then hers is certainly not a tale on that list.
In fact Kim Basinger’s procedures, if she has had any, would be more reminiscent of Jane Fonda’s cosmetic surgery than Heidi Montag’s surgical disaster.
Kim Basinger herself has neither confirmed nor denied a facelift, playing it smart, but Dr. Paul Nassif has an opinion of his own on the subject.
“The after photo may be indicative of a facelift,” Nassif said. “Her jaw line looks too youthful.”
However, the key phrase to remember here is “may be.” Even professional surgeons can only be so sure, especially given that they aren’t the surgeons that were on staff and performing the procedure.
So unless Kim Basinger decides to break her silence on the subject, all fans have to go on is speculation and the oldest form of celebrity plastic surgery detector, the before and after picture.
Before and After Surgery Pictures
Pictures of Kim Basinger have shown that she’s remained beautiful and elegant, making her one of the most prominent examples of celebrities that are aging gracefully.
And photos of her do show that she’s changed over the many years of her career, but those changes are so gradual that it’s hard to say exactly what’s causing them.
Basinger’s love of collagen therapy, a high protein cream that’s supposed to keep skin young and beautiful as well as healthy, is well known and it might play into how she’s managed to look so good for so long.
That, combined with Basinger’s natural beauty, good genes and a healthy lifestyle seems to be standing her in very good stead.
Of course it is still possible that she has had a facelift. A good plastic surgeon with a talent for keeping the procedure subtle and natural looking can fool even dedicated viewers with how his patient’s looks change.
Of course it is equally possible that Basinger’s naturally strong cheeks, graceful aging and lifestyle have allowed her to naturally hold onto what is hers longer, especially when combined with all of the care creams and collagen that she’s used over the years.
It’s nearly impossible to say which side is the right side despite all of the speculation about Kim Basinger’s potential plastic surgery, but that hasn’t stopped the debate over the question.
In case you have missed it, Kim Basinger was almost unrecognizable as she had arrived to a Beverly Hills office building and medical center in 2011, exiting the building with a blanket covering her face.
Kim Basinger , 57 then, who has always remained mum on the subject of plastic surgery, looked drastically different with her plumper looking cheeks.
The question is: "What plastic surgeons think of Kim Basinger's plastic surgery?"
Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn gave his expert opinion on whether Kim went under the knife.
"She doesn’t look anything like her usual self!" exclaimed Youn. "I would say that she’s been overly plumped!"
The doctor, who has never treated Basinger continued: "She looks quite swollen, consistent with having had plastic surgery like an upper and lower eyelid life and/or facial plumping using fat injections. Her right eyelid also appears to be drooping, such as what can happen with overdone Botox."
According to celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer: " Often after skin treatments and fillers, the patient can have temporary swelling for a day or two. In most cases, the swelling resolves quickly. However, if the patient demands too much product or the doctor in not conservative, then unnatural results can occur."
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer claims: " Kim Basinger’s swollen face appears to be a sign that she may have very recently had dermal fillers injected into her face- specifically her cheek areas. Slight swelling is normal and goes away after 1-2 days. If she had recently undergone a face lift she would most likely have some visible bruising as well."
The cream, when applied to the face, sits in fine lines, plumping them out and has a similar effect to injectable Botox.
But while an unlined forehead has become the accepted norm for celebrities in Hollywood those who looked a little closer spotted a few small lines on Kim's radiant face.
In detail, at thirty Kim was beautiful with large breasts due to breast implants and smooth, healthy skin. Over the years, Kim has had many plastic surgery procedures including the removal of her breast implants and at least one procedure to tighten the skin on her face – either a mini lift or a full facelift.
Today Kim has features that don’t look too far removed from herself twenty years ago. Her face appears chiseled and well defined. Her brow is smooth and her lower face is smooth with only a few noticeable lines and wrinkles. There is obviously no sagging skin along the jaw line and her neck is smooth and supple as well. It appears Kim is aging backwards.
