Did Jeff Bezos get a facelift? Billionaire's plump lips and tight cheeks spark speculation
'We see you, Jeff. Next time get the filler a month earlier so that the swelling has time to die down,' dermatologist Dr Corey L Hartman said
Jeff Bezos’ considerably plump lips and super smooth, tight cheeks have sparked rumors that he has had a facelift. Bezos looked different in recent photos and videos taken before and after his $5.5 billion sprees into space earlier this month.
It's unknown if Bezos, 57, underwent any cosmetic surgery as he hasn't said anything publicly, and there have been no official statements from Amazon or his media relations team. Nevertheless, the apparent transformation has caught the interest of some, including Dr Corey L Hartman, a dermatologist in Birmingham, Alabama, who said, "How can you not be obsessed [with how Bezos looks]? It's such a drastic change. He's an easy target." He further said, "Clearly he does not care because to me it looks like to me that he went and got his very obvious filler and injectables done right before he burst into the spotlight with this trip into space," he added.
Hartman also posted a picture of Bezos, who is worth an estimated $192 billion, on Instagram last week and stated, "We see you, Jeff. Next time get the filler a month earlier so that the swelling has time to die down. Keeps people (like me) out of your business." While talking to Daily Beast, he offered advice on how to avoid unsightly swelling after cosmetic injectables. The doctor said: "These are temporary implants that your skin is not used to, and your skin is going to respond to what you’ve put in it."
Corey Kindberg, a brand strategist, said: "I don’t necessarily think people care that he [might have] had work done. I feel like we’ve moved past the stigma of getting injections. I definitely had more of a visceral reaction to Jeff using filler—if he has used it. You just think, someone with this kind of money could afford to have the best filler in the world. To me, he could have gold melted down and injected into his face. It’s just kind of shocking to see that, if he has had it, no matter how rich you are, you could still get bad filler." Bezos' girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, 51, also has an extremely youthful appearance, although it is not clear if the world's richest man got a suggestion on a makeover from his partner.
