  • After years of playing similar characters, legendary actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro finally appeared in the same film after decades in the business. Although their film Righteous Kill wasn’t a success, it was interesting to see how the legendary actors have aged, with or without plastic surgery.

    Al Pacino, Plastic Surgery

    68-year old Al Pacino has come under the Make Me Heal radar before for his facial plastic surgery. Most likely beginning in the 1990’s, when the former Michael Corleone would have been in his 50’s, the actor began undergoing a series of subtle cosmetic surgeries to reduce the sags and bags that can come with aging.

    Pacino looks to have had a browlift (forehead lift), facelift, and potentially a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), not to mention skin laser treatments and dermal injections such as Botox, Restylane, or Juvederm.

    This is evidenced by recent photos showing Pacino’s sunken eyes becoming more refreshed, less sagging around the lower lids, a rather unusually tight neck and jawline without any evidence of sagging that is typical of his age. Moreover, Pacino has a rather tight forehead free of horizontal creases, no nasolabial folds (those are the smile lines that emanate to the corner of the mouth to the edges of the nose) which are improved with a facelift, and his crow’s feet around his eyes appear to have improved over the last decade.

    The relatively wrinkle free forehead, mouth and eye areas suggest continuous use of injectables such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm, as well as the possibility that Pacino had a laser skin resurfacing procedure using some ablative or non-ablative laser. Finally, it is possible that Al Pacino had a rhinoplasty to lift up his tip as his nose tip appears to be narrower than before. (See Make Me Heal’s original story on Al Pacino’s plastic surgery).

    Robery DeNiro, Plastic Surgery

    On the other hand, his co-star 65-year old Robert DeNiro’s deep wrinkles seem to be untouched by knife or needle. Not enough the large mole on the right side of his face seems to have been touched.

    The lines going both horizontally and vertically across his forehead indicate that DeNiro doesn’t use dermal injectables like the ever popular Botox. The loose skin around his neck and his sagging cheeks indicate that he has likely not had a facelift or injections to keep his skin firm.

    Even though Pacino and De Niro finally gave fans a chance to see both legends together in action in their film, Righteous Kill, it seems they would have been better off taking better care of their skin or investing in some good plastic surgery.

      Robert De Niro is a real 65 years old man, Al Pacino is a mummy. I don’t like mummies. De Niro resemble his young himself, but this man in left side is not Al Pacino any more. I think, Robert de Niro shouldn’t investigate in plastic surgery.

      A little off topic, but De Niro and Pacino were both also in ‘Heat’. Not the first time they’ve done a movie together.

      De Niro looks great ,there are some men such as Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery who look sexy at their age, wrinkles and all. Plastic Surgery just hasn’t gotten the kinks worked out for men yet. Most men who have had it their eyes shrink, the implanted cheek bones just don’t cut it….freaky

      First of all, I know this was written years ago, but, it is the first time I PERSONALLY have read it. I work for plastic surgeons, in America’s largest & most populous (by density) city; NYC.

      Both surgeons specialize primarily in facial plastic surgery. They are both Otolaryngologist’s (their specialty is in ear, nose, & throat/ENT) & both are board certified. Also known as facial surgeons, they have secondary degrees in facial reconstruction (aka facial plastic surgery). This means they spent additional years of training, and the same amount of training one would spend on any specialty service, while in medical school, working solely on. Facial reconstruction, throughout those years. They both have majored & are Board Certified in both ENT, and facial plastic surgery. Two years after I began there, on of them left to an additional specialty to do full body plastics. He’s now at an office that specializes in full body reconstruction. So, I know and have learned alot about facial reconstruction, from my time with them.

      You can tell a few things from the differences in the pictures: both on the left & right & what may have been touched up on Al’s face. If this is truly a photo of him on the right, & not of a strikingly good look alike. I make this notation/distinction based on on the fact not only is the nose slightly smaller (when we age our noses typically grow, unless drastic amounts of weight is lost) than at left but, also he has different color eyes on the right than the left photo.

      Anyway returning to my point; the man on the right has NOT had a face lift. His eyebrows would be slightly higher on the forehead. He has also NOT had a nose job, if anything the nostrils look slightly smaller (but, the photograph was taken from a much further away position than photo one) but the bridge of the nose is clearly larger. Like it has been punched or broken.

      If this is Al, in 2008, which was a year he had some health issues, that would alone explain some of the major changes in his facial features, due to massive weight loss plus aging.

      The photo on the right isn’t as clear, which can also equal/mean Photoshop. If you don’t believe me go ahead enlarge the pics side by side. The photo on the left remains pristine, unpixalated, & easy to see. However, the one on the right the pixilation starts to blur the larger you make it (& happens quickly).

      If you look at Pacino’s chin, you’ll see he has evident jowls or sagging of skin & tissue around the chin in the photo at right. He’s also sporting a small beard/scruff, which is a notorious way of hiding abundant skin & tissue with aging.

      I do think the author of this article is 50% right, Al’s definitely had a little work, but, it’s mostly maintenance rather than the whole shebang.

      Clearly he’s had Botox rather than restylane or juvaderm. My conclusion it must be Botox, is bc the other two are fillers, rather than paralyzers, like Botox is. So the face would appear more full rather than just stiff like the appearance after botox.

      Also, Al’s crows feet are still prominent on the left, just more difficult to see bc of the photo quality compared to the right.

      The other thing I’d say the guy on the left had (& author guessed right), was a blephroplasty. But, not on the upper and lower eyelids. ONLY (based on the skin texture, sagging) on the lower eyelids.

      Finally, pertaining to the surgeries, I agree that he has most likely had some sort of facial laser treatment, as you can see evidence in, by the still slightly pinked color in his face, especially on his nose & the balls of his cheeks. Which is the primary focus area of many peels/lasers. Also some of the nasal swelling in the center of the nose, could still be swelling caused by a recent peel/laser work on his mid-face.

      So those are my thoughts on that. Also “some guy” (a commentor on the article) mentioned Pacino, being in “Heat”, with DeNiro. The authors claim it’s their first movie together, was correct. During the filming of “Heat”, they both had such busy schedules, that neither of them could be on set at the same time. They never shot a single scene during the filming of “Heat”, “together”. It’s the magic of movies (behind, sides, & front shots) with the help of “body doubles” (also recently more popularly called stand-ins), camera angle, & editing which give us the illusion they filmed scenes together.

      So we’re they both in the film “Heat”. Yes, absolutely. But, “Righteous Kill” was their first film on set together.
