I'm a plastic surgeon – this is what famous blokes like Tom Cruise and Elon Musk get done, from fillers to nose jobs

DOES your fella love a bit of filler?

We told recently how Dale Cullen, 28, has spent £25,000 perfecting his face for social media. 

The social media fanatic, from Chester-le-Street, County Durham, said the pressure of looking perfect led to him having a nose job, a chin implant and crowns on his teeth.

He told Chronicle Live: "I spent so much time, money, and energy on chasing that perfect look, it's crazy.”

But he’s not the only man on the planet feeling the pressure to look perfect – with famous stars paving the way by talking frankly about their surgery experiences.

Here, Tunc Tiryaki, consultant plastic surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic, analyses the striking looks of male stars – from fillers and facelifts… to just good genes.

Zac Efron, 34

When the High School Musical actor appeared very different last year, fans speculated the heartthrob may have gone under the knife. 

But his friend Kyle Sandilands denied this, saying: “It's like getting a Picasso and having a kid finger paint all over it. Why bother?”

But Mr Tiryaki says while Efron might not have had surgery, he looked different. 

He said: “It looks like he has had dermal fillers in the cheeks, lips and jawline.”

Simon Cowell, 62

Simon Cowell admits overdoing the botox while filming X Factor

The X Factor boss’s face has changed since he first rose to fame for his cutting comments on the talent show. 

He says some of fans' shock is down to too many anti ageing injections. 

He told the Mirror: “I love watching ‘the Botox years’. All of us are like, ‘Christ, we had a lot that year. Not so much that year… maybe a bit too much that year’.”

Mr Tiryako said: “He’s certainly had botox on the forehead. 

“But he has possibly had cheek and jawline fillers and potentially a facelift too.”

Tom Cruise, 59

The Mission Impossible actor had dental work to help his career reach dizzying heights, but previously told Playboy of surgery: "I haven’t, and I never would."

Last October, he was spotted at a basketball game with an unusually puffy face.

Mr Tiryaki said: “He was doing very well for a long time, possibly using systemic anti-aging treatments. 

“The last photo is out of norm for Tom, he has possibly had fillers or a steroid treatment.”

Elon Musk, 50

The South African billionaire has gained a lot since starting company PayPal in 2000.

Not only is he richer than most, his thatch has thickened out nicely too. 

Mr Tiryaki said: “As far as hair transplantation goes, this is the gold standard.

“It looks very natural and well done.”

Daniel Craig, 53

The Bond actor appeared at the BAFTAs in 2018 looking noticeably different than before. 

His appearance led fans to speculate whether he had botox or fillers, with one quipping: “That frozen face will endure minimal . . . Eyefall.”

Some said he appeared “plastic” as he presented an award on stage, but Mr Tiryaki disagrees.

He said: “If Daniel has had anything done, it's been done in a very natural way. It’s impossible to tell.”

Craig Revel Horwood, 57

Strictly judge Craig has spoken publicly about having a nose job aged 18 and an operation to remove his moobs. 

Craig told podcast White Wine Question Time: “When I took the bandages off, I just started crying in the mirror because it was the first time I’d had a flat chest.” 

Mr Tiryaki said: “We know Craig had a nose job in his youth and also a procedure to help his gynecomastia. 

“He is likely to have had a touch of mid-face filler and forehead botox.”

Mickey Rourke, 69

Diner actor Rourke saw his love of boxing ruin his good looks.

He says his nose was reconstructed using cartilage from his ear. 

He told the Daily Mail in 2009: "I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together." 

Mr Tiryaki said: “A lot of this work has been reconstructive as Mickey says – for example, rebuilding his broken nose. 

“However there are signs of a face lift and lip filler here too.”

Marc Jacobs, 58

Designer Marc Jacobs told his fans about getting his facelift over Instagram with caption “#LiveLoveLift”. 

Marc told Vogue shortly after: “Yes, I’m vain. I find there is no shame in being vain.”

Mr Tiryaki said: “Marc has been extremely honest about the work he’s had done. And he’s clearly chosen a skilled surgeon. 

“This is a very neat facelift which has been beautifully executed.”

Two million men considering treatment

Figures from cosmetic clinic Uvence found two million men in the UK are considering a cosmetic treatment – with nonsurgical treatments which target the jawline, chin, and neck among the most popular.

Consultant Plastic Surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic Tunc Tiryaki says he has seen a 17 per cent increase on male procedures and treatments since 2020. 

He says men are being sold on plastic surgery as celebs show off the results. 

Mr Tiryaki said: “Seeing celebrities, and social figures having surgery makes it more acceptable for them.

“Second, they are having more and more information on this topic and are getting convinced that they will look natural. This is the most important thing for male patients.”

But keeping men looking young comes with its own set of challenges. 

Mr Tiryaki added: “Male plastic surgery is more delicate than female procedures.

“The first reason is even slight overcorrections have a feminising effect on facial procedures. 

“On the other hand, female patients have a deeper understanding of the nature of aesthetic procedures, given the fact that they are dealing with these issues for longer time.

“They are more open to talk and discuss with their friends.”

Brad Pitt, 58

The Benjamin Button star looks great for his age – but has he been under the knife?

The actor is incredibly tight lipped about how he stays looking so youthful and is rumoured to have had his ears pinned back. 

But Mr Tiryaki says it could be down to genes and ageing.

He said: “He is ageing very well. His face looks natural.

“I don’t think he has had prominent ear surgery.”

Barry Manilow, 78

The Copacabana singer has undoubtedly changed since his glory days in the seventies.

But Barry denies ever having any cosmetic procedures to help with aging. 

He told Jonathan Ross in 2016: “Really, this is what I look like. I don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.”

Mr Tiryaki said: “His face has changed substantially since his youth. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had undergone a facelift and topped this up with cheek fillers.”
