Has Tom Brady had plastic surgery? Expert explains how NFL legend's face has changed over the years
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS: NFL legend Tom Brady has always had the looks to go with his illustrious career. However, rumors about the Buccaneers athlete getting plastic surgery have resurfaced recently. Brady has denied the claims and has informed the doubters that the secret to his looks is a healthy diet and his commitment to his workout routines.
A recent report by Amomama notes that rumors about Brady getting plastic surgery started floating when he took eleven days off to recover from a surgical procedure, although he did not specify what procedure. While eleven can be too short a timeframe to recover from some surgeries, it is enough to recover from receiving botox injections. And now Dr Linkov, a certified plastic surgeon, has weighed in on the possible procedures that he believes Brady has had done.

Dr Linkov first addressed a possible frontotemporal recession from back in 2001 when Brady was 24 years old. He noted Brady’s eyebrows are distinctive and considered "ideal". He also drew attention to the athlete's upper eyelids and claimed it could be a result of brow ptosis or excessive upper eyelid skin.
Dr Linkov also observed that Brady had a short philtrum (the area between the nose and upper lip) with full dental show. Besides, Brady has a strong jaw and a Y shaped dimple in the middle, he noted. Dr Linkov then draws the conclusion that Brady must have had feminization surgery in 2002. He also explains that Brady’s equally filled lips may not be surgical and that he may just have grown into them naturally. Besides, he believes that Brady did not take any botox injections when he was 36 and cites his glabella crow’s lines, which are more curved than they would be if he had taken them, as proof.
Brady, who is in his 40s now, frequently attracts comments about his face. However, Dr Linkov defends Brady and says his loss of lateral and middle chic fat has more to do with the natural aging process than surgeries. Nevertheless, he does believe that Brady got the procedure done to get a smoother appearance around his face. He says the procedure would have cost him at least $1,500.
