Last week, when Kim Basinger made an appearance at the Los Angeles premiere of the film While She Was Out, Make Me Heal thought we spotted signs of plastic surgery on the stunning actress.
55-year old Kim has long been a Hollywood sex symbol, appearing in such notable films as 9 1/2 Weeks and Batman. But her skin elasticity is just as firm as it was back then, a likely sign of plastic surgery.
Kim’s skin is unusually firm along her jawline, usually a dead giveaway for a facelift.
According to Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California, “The after photo may be indicative of a facelift. Her jaw line looks too youthful. She looks good. Her cheeks are still too perfect.”
Indeed Kim’s cheeks have always been high, so it is unlikely that they are the result of an augmentation or fillers. It also does not seem that she has used anything like Botox or fillers like Restylane because her face is still expressive and crinkles when she smiles.
Kim has never admitted to using cosmetic surgery to help maintain her looks, but she is rumored to be a fan of collagen therapy gel, a hydrolysed wheat protein system that, when applied to the face, sits in fine lines, plumping them out and has a similar effect to injectable Botox.
A few years back, plastic surgeon Alex Karidis told the Daily Mail that he suspected Kim used fillers around her mouth to help decrease fine lines and may have also had eyelid surgery.
He said, “I am absolutely convinced that Kim has had some filler put into her lips and work done around the mouth.”
“If you look carefully, there is a slightly raised area above her top lip – a sign that she has had some kind of injectable filler put in to plump up her lips and make them project more.”
“Surgery-wise, she looks like she has had an upper eyelid job with a small slither of skin removed from her lids to take away the heaviness around the eye area. In 2004, her eyelids were slightly impinging on her eyelashes but two years on they no longer are.”
Whatever magic Kim is using to look good, it is certainly working for her, as she looks as fit and radiant as ever.
