People’s appearance change as they age. It’s just a law of nature. They develop wrinkles on the face and other parts of the body. Crow’s feet begin to show up. Lips start to look less youthful and full like they used to.
The skin responds to gravity in a rather unpleasant manner. This can be attributed to decreased collagen production by the body. P.S: In case you don’t know, collagen is what keeps us looking youthful and pretty.
Some celebrities seem to age backward, going by their looks. One good example is Nicole Kidman. Since her first appearance in Hollywood in 1983, the Australian beauty has aged very little—physically, that is. She was only 16 when she moved from Australia to join the long list of Hollywood stars. She is currently 53 years but has the body and face of a 20-year old. No kidding!
Nicole’s Facial Features over the Years
Ever since Nicole entered the entertainment space 37 years ago, rumors about her going under the knife to correct her looks have emerged repeatedly. Magazines have written countless articles about her transformation over the years, claiming she’s gone through several procedures to look young and plump. Print media has done pretty much the same thing, so have tabloids and online media outlets.
When Nicole first became a star, she sported natural red curls. Of course, she looked natural, young, and beautiful. No one doubted her when she said she had never done any procedure to repair anything.
Over the next decade, Kidman’s hair changed first to lush waves and finally to super straight hair. The color of the hair would go from red to blonde to brunette and back to red. As for her facial features, Kidman can be said to have sustained a young-looking appearance.
Expectedly, rumors about going under the knife filled the air when the beauty showed up for the 1994 Oscars sporting a difference in her eyebrows. It could have been a change in make-up, but most rumors pointed to plastic surgery. Her nose was also more angular than before, and her cheekbones more pronounced.
Somewhere around 2001, the actress showed plump lips. Fans wondered if injections were to blame or if it was the result of kissing Ewan in the movie Moulin Rouge a million times. In 2002, Nicole’s face had zero blemishes. This, too, raised many eyebrows, no pun intended.
Two years later, her face looked unusually full and plump—way more than her previous years. By 2007, Nicole was a totally different woman. Her beauty radiated across the room. Her features were defined, and her skin flawless.
2013 was especially big for Kidman as she had several nominations under her belt for different awards. It was also the specific year the Oscar winner admitted to having done Botox.
She called it “an unfortunate move,” claiming to have gone natural after that. Over the next couple of years, the actress showed minor signs of aging. Crow’s feet could be seen on her face, but she somehow looked young and pretty despite being close to 50 years old.
So, How Much Plastic Surgery Has Nicole Gone Through?
Apart from her little confession in 2013, Nicole Kidman has denied all plastic surgery rumors directed to her. She’s always maintained that she’s natural. According to her, she looks the way she does because of her clean diet and workout routine, among other things.
The Australian beauty says that she was taught to look after herself from an early age. She also adds that she has no qualms about people who prefer going the plastic surgery route.
Two surgeons have weighed in on the matter surrounding Nicole Kidman and plastic surgery. According to them, the actress has no doubt gone under the knife on more than one occasion. Although none has treated Nicole at any point in her life, the surgeons can tell when one has done a procedure or two.
Here’s what one of the surgeons had to say.
“I would deduce that Nicole has gone through several surgical and nonsurgical treatments over the years to remain youthful and modify some physical features in her body. I would propose that the star may have done rhinoplasty, which is the term for a nose resection procedure.
This is why her nose’s bridge is thinner than before, and the tips of her nostrils are much smaller and lifted than before.”
The surgeons, who are both American board-certified, said that they believe Kidman has had a mini-facelift, some Botox treatments, and a temporal brow lift. The actress might have gone through minimally-invasive procedures for her intact skin, including chemical peels and laser treatments. It could also be a result of perfect genes.
Nicole Kidman is known for her massive Hollywood success. The actress has rubbed shoulders and acted alongside some of the big names in the entertainment industry. Although she denies it, there’s a high likelihood that she’s done not one, not two, but several procedures over the years.
