Gwyneth Paltrow grew up in the Hollywood spotlight as the daughter of a famous actress (Blythe Danner) and a successful television producer (Bruce Paltrow). While she is known for her acting abilities and business ventures, she is also known for being outspoken about any and all topics. She recently stated that she will “never” have a drastic cosmetic procedure because she does not want to stop looking like herself. Even if she feels this way at the moment, there has been gossip in the past about cosmetic changes to her appearance.
The 48-year-old actress has said in the past that she is a fan of Xeomin (an injectable that reduces the appearance of wrinkles). Paltrow says she has only used the product to maintain an appearance that is “rested and vibrant”.
When asked about the subject of Xeomin, Paltrow said “[My friend] Dr. Few said ‘[Xeomin] is a totally different formula and it’s purified and it’s going to be really natural and it’s just a teeny drop.’ So I felt it made a really big difference and I thought it was really cool that there was a more pure formula that was better for you. This makes me feel like I [look like I] had a really good night’s sleep. I never want to do anything where I don’t look like myself. I don’t want to look younger. That’s not the thing. I just want to look rested, vibrant. I want to look good for my age.”
While Paltrow says she would “never” have a drastic cosmetic procedure, she has also stated that she is not totally against the idea of having a cosmetic procedure. She told the magazine Stylish, “I’m open to it. If there was something that I heard about that I thought would be really game-changing, but I would still look like me. I might try to. I’ve learned that I never say never.”
Earlier this year, The National Enquirer ran a story that speculated on a possible breast augmentation surgery for Paltrow. The tabloid newspaper interviewed Dr. Yoel Shahar, a New York-based plastic surgeon for his opinion about the topic. The doctor said “There’s virtually no question that her breasts have been augmented. She’s gone up at least a full cup size!”
An anonymous source told the newspaper, “Gwyneth knows she’s getting older and that Hollywood is an extremely competitive place for a woman her age. She’s going to do whatever she needs to do to get an edge.”
The article speculates that her breasts have grown from an A cup to a C cup through the use of fat transfer or breast implants. Dr. Otto Placik, a doctor based in Chicago, said “Given the larger appearance of the bra and that her weight seems to have remained the same, it would lead me to believe this was achieved with the use of implants. She might have had fat transfers, but the progression from her upper chest suggests an implant.”
While Paltrow has never admitted to having any kind of work performed on her nose, the current appearance of her nose seems to suggest the actress had rhinoplasty at some point in the past. In the 1990s, her nose had an appearance that was wider and rounder than its current look. In the early 2000s, the appearance of her nose changed to the point that her nostrils were flatter and the bridge of her nose had a straighter look.
Even though Gwyneth promotes living a healthy lifestyle, she has admitted to trying Botox in the past. From her comments about Botox, it is clear that she was not a fan of the experience. Paltrow says she did not like the way the Botox made her look and that it was “uncomfortable”.
In an effort to fight wrinkles and maintain a good complexion, she has admitted to undergoing laser treatments and is open to having more of them in the future.
From the information detailed above, it seems that Gwyneth Paltrow is full of contradictions when it comes to cosmetic surgery procedures. She would “never” want to undergo any type of plastic surgery that would drastically alter her looks but she is suspected of undergoing breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. She is an advocate of healthy living and aging gracefully but she has admitted to having Botox and laser treatments while also being a fan of Xeomin.
It seems that Gwyneth Paltrow thinks everyone should let the effects of the aging process be visible to others (except for her when she feels like she might need to reduce the appearance of wrinkles). She also says “never” to procedures that would make a big change in her appearance but there are many who feel that she has made significant changes in her look. It appears that the public might never know how Gwyneth Paltrow feels about cosmetic surgery because her opinion about cosmetic procedures seems to change every year.
