Vladimir Putin is once again running for President of Russia and once again is causing speculation that he has had plastic surgery.
59-year old Vladimir Putin is once again under speculation of having plastic surgery, after debuting a wrinkle-free look on television. The Prime Minister of Russia may have had a facelift, as well as blepharoplasty and possible Botox injections.
ABC News speculates, ” Putin, like Kim Kardashian before him, is the latest celebrity to cause wild speculation online about whether he recently had some work done.”
“Putin, who turns 59 next month, appeared at an event over the weekend to accept his party’s presidential nomination. His skin looked smooth and taught, visibly free of wrinkles and bags under his eyes.”
“The Russian magazine New Times ran an article earlier this month titled “What Has Happened with Putin’s Face?” Four plastic surgeons told the magazine he likely had undergone plastic surgery – receiving Botox injections in his forehead, an eyelift, and cheek injections.”
Prime Minister Putin likely has only one procedure at a time, to minimize the downtime from plastic surgery recovery in his busy schedule.
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, ” If I was a plastic surgeon in Russia, I’d be afraid to speculate on him. This isn’t the first time he’s come under scrutiny for having possible plastic surgery. I previously commented on a possible eyelid lift and necklift.”
In an older post, Dr. Youn writes, “If I had to guess I’d say he probably had a minor injury on part of his face, maybe from walking into a door in the middle of the night. He doesn’t appear to have had a facelift, although an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is possible. The skin of his neckline is still somewhat loose, and there are no telltale scars around the ears to signify a facelift.”
“Even if I thought he had plastic surgery, I don’t know if I’d admit it. He’s one scary dude.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “ It is possible that Vladimir Putin has had Botox injections to his upper forehead. His eyes definitely appear to have had a little work as his eyelids are remarkably smooth and look like that of a 25 year old.”
The former president and current Prime Minister is running for president again, leading to international speculation about his plastic surgery.
