Kim Basinger is looking wrinkle-free and youthful in new images of the movie star. Beauty and plastic surgery experts spoke with the Express about the 69-year-old’s changing face in this exclusive.
Kim Basinger shocked the world last week as the 69-year-old actress looked unrecognisable at her daughter Ireland Baldwin’s baby shower. Some fans of the L.A. Confidential actress have been speculating about her look.
Last week former Bond Girl Kim Basinger was photographed arriving at the wild strip-club-themed baby shower at the Jumbo’s Clown Room in Hollywood, California.
Her skin looked smooth and wrinkle-free, likely leaving other 69-year-olds sick with envy.
Kim has never confirmed whether she has had any plastic surgery, and her daughter has claimed in the past that the actress has never had any treatments to turn back the clock. In 2012, Ireland Baldwin wrote: “You are the most naturally beautiful woman there ever was and will be. Your skin care, workouts and advice on eating healthy inspire me to do the same.
“Ladies, if you want to avoid Botox and any other skin treatments, listen to my mom! She hasn’t had one treatment done because she’s stay (sic) completely out of the sun all these years!”
Now two beauty experts have weighed in on her youthful visage and suggested the sort of treatments that might help create a look as youthful as Kim’s.
Dr. Omar Tillo is a medical director and senior plastic surgeon at the specialised plastic surgery clinic CREO. He puts Kim’s look down to a “healthy diet, lifestyle, and exercise.”
The medical expert said: ”Kim is ageing beautifully and I’m sure most of it is the result of a healthy diet, lifestyle and exercise.”
However, the actress may have had some treatments, the doctor said: “From looking at these photos, I’d say it is likely that Kim has enhanced her appearance with some treatments.
“If you look at previous photos, you can see apparent lines and wrinkles around Kim’s eyes (crow’s feet).
“These could be treated with anti-wrinkle injectables such as Botox. She also has clear lines around her mouth area (nasolabial), which could be the result of being smoothed out with dermal filler.”
The senior plastic surgeon also spoke about the actress’s wrinkle-free skin despite being 69 years old and said: “Kim’s skin also seems much fresher with a more even complexion – this could be due to several factors such as laser treatments.”
One other expert also weight in with his expertise. Mr. Reza Nassab is a consultant plastic surgeon who is also the founder of the CLNQ Clinic. In his expert opinion, Kim Basinger appeared “flawless” during her daughter’s baby shower and gave insight into what has changed.
The surgeon praised the actor’s “youthful and glowing appearance.” Mr. Nassb said: “The forehead shows hardly any wrinkles and is glowing. Wrinkles may be reduced using anti-wrinkle injections and this can help reflect light giving smooth-appearing skin.”
The consultant noted Basinger has always had high cheekbones which are often seen as a “feature of youthfulness.” He said: “As we age the cheek fat descends and loses volume but in her case, the cheeks appear full and in the right place.
“This can be achieved with non-surgical procedures such as fillers but also surgical options such as fat transfer.”
Another feature of Kim Basinger’s the consultant noted was her “nicely defined jawline” which is another youthful feature as “ageing results in jowls and skin laxity in the area”
Mr Nassab described surgeries that can result in a more youthful look, and said: “There are many technologies now that can help reduce skin laxity in the lower face and neck such as laser, high intensity focused ultrasound or radiofrequency like the Morpheus8. Surgical procedures such as facelifts will give more noticeable and longer lasting results.”
