Bruce Willis is adored by fans for being the ultimate rugged real man, someone who ages gracefully. So it goes without saying that the words Bruce Willis and plastic surgery do not typically coincide in the same sentence unless his ex-wife and cosmetic surgery proponent Demi Moore is being mentioned. But this may be a thing of the past, as Bruce Willis’ appearance at the MTV Film Awards this past Sunday changed everything (see video below).
Looking relaxed and casual in a Hawaiian shirt, the 52-year old star of the upcoming summer blockbuster “Live Free or Die Hard” looked ten years younger than other fifty something colleagues with radiant skin, a forehead with no deep lines or wrinkles that would be otherwise typical of his age, no naso-labial folds (laugh lines that emanate from the corners of the mouth to the nose), no glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows and above the nose), and very faint crows’ feet around his eyes. Bruce also has no jowling on his tight jawline and his neck has no sagging or slack skin that normally occurs at his age.
Being that Bruce Willis is bald, hiding plastic surgery scars would not be an easy task to achieve by a plastic surgeon — although not impossible. If plastic surgery is behind Bruce’s youthful look, then there is a small probability that he had a mini-facelift to address his neck and jaw. More realistically, however, it appears that Bruce is just using Botox injections or Restylane to erase the lines and wrinkles on his face and probably has had more than one chemical peel, or dermabrasion, or laser skin resurfacing along the years to smooth his skin.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn spoke with Make Me Heal and was equally amazed by Willis’s age-defying look at the awards show. “I just saw the show [2007 MTV Film Awards] and I thought he looked great. Definitely younger than most men his age. He may be using some Botox to decrease the wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Probably has had laser treatments and/or chemical peels tokeep his skin tight and rejuvenated,” says Dr. Youn. However, Dr. Youn did sound caution against jumping to the conclusion that invasive plastic surgery was involved and said, “I doubt any real surgery though. Hard to hide the scars with the bald head!”
Given Bruce’s close relationship with ex-wife Demi, it is likely that over a family get-together Demi gave him some advice about how to turn back the clock. And her favorite plastic surgeon’s telephone number.
