While many people might think she’s too old to make the tabloids, Christie Brinkley’s cosmetic surgery gossip still holds a prominent place in a lot of magazines to this day.
Brinkley, who held the longest running contract a model ever possessed in history with Cover Girl, is famous for her stints on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in the late 1970s and early 1980s, in addition to her marriage to Billy Joel.
Given that she’s made her career from her looks, it only makes sense that Brinkley would still draw a lot of looks in her 50s, but as the years go on even more rumors of celebrity plastic surgery fly.
Has Christie Brinkley Had Surgery?
While Brinkley has been quoted in public as saying that she doesn’t rule out plastic surgery as an option, she has alluded that she’s “just too chicken,” or at least she was at the time she said it.
While she hasn’t become a victim of bad celebrity plastic surgery, not like Mickey Rourke or Michael Jackson had anyway, people expect to see certain signs of aging, even when you’re a blond bombshell.
And of course when people don’t see crow’s feet or laugh lines, and your skin remains taught and wrinkle free, that’s when the rumor mills start spinning.
However Brinkley hasn’t said yay or nay to whether or not she went under the knife, so all we have is supposed before and after pictures, supported by the opinions of fans and doctors who like to weigh in on the plastic surgery guessing game.
Christie Before and After?
It may seem unfair comparing pictures of Brinkley now, while she’s in her 50s, to when she was much younger, but you need to take a look at how she changed and aged over time to see whether or not there’s any weight at all to the rumors of her getting plastic surgery.
According to Celebrity Plastic Surgery, there is speculation that Brinkley has gotten a brow lift, possible eye lid surgery and has most certainly undergone the use of Botox and face fillers like Juvederm and Restylane.
The justification for all of these declarations is that most women don’t age as well as Brinkley, no matter the exercise routines, genes or diet they keep.
Her forehead is wrinkle free, and the corners of her eyes are free from crow’s feet. Her skin is just as smooth now as it was decades ago, and it doesn’t appear to have any sort of sun damage.
Thin evidence for speculation, but since no doctors have stated they’ve performed procedures, and the rumors haven’t been addressed by the long term model either to confirm or deny them, speculation is really all that we and the tabloids have to go on.
