Bond Girl Britt Ekland Admits to Plastic Surgery
The 71-year-old shares that her current career path has made her appreciate the value of growing old gracefully. “The funny thing is for the last few years my career has been in the theatre, and natural expression is seen as a good thing.
“I think people look so much better if they don't have surgery,” she adds.
But despite her surgery regrets, the Swedish beauty has a lot to be grateful for as 2013 comes to a close.
She welcomed her first grandson and shares how she wanted to “scream the good news” when she found out she would be a grandmother.
“As soon as they told me it was okay to announce, I went into full-on 'grandma mode,’” says Eckland.
“When I first saw the baby he was so tiny. I thought 'Oh my God, maybe I'll break him.’ Within one day, my instincts came back and I knew exactly what to do,” she tells Hello! magazine.
In detail, Britt Ekland, 70, is speculated to have had a facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, botox injections, lip injections, a nose job and facial fillers.
Britt Ekland has admitted to having plastic surgery in the past, claiming that plastic surgery is great but it should only be used by people over 40. "I think it's wonderful. But there should be an age limit. It should be absolutely forbidden for anyone under 40. It's for older people - to lift the chin here and take a couple of crow's feet out there - not for young people who want to be bigger and plumper or thinner," Ekland explained.
Judging by her recent appearances, it is clear that Ekland has gone too far with plastic surgery in a desperate attempt for everlasting beauty as she is now the latest victim of trout pout and a windswept-looking face.
In spite of her youthful complexion, possibly an indication of collagen injections and a face lift, Ekland's lips are too puffed up, the result of an over zealous lip enhancement using a filler like Restylane or even collagen.
Despite having undergone many plastic surgery procedures, Ekland revealed that she is not a fan of botox. She previously talked about how Nicole Kidman apparently has over-done it on Botox after watching her in "Cold Mountain". "Her face was neither sad nor glad - nor anything. She was just like a painted doll, I thought: "Why would she do that?,"" Ekland was quoted as saying.
In an interview before her show "Britt on Britt" during the Edinburgh Festival in 2008 in Scotland, Ekland stated she's not worried about no longer being labeled a "sex kitten": "I guess you could say that I was a sex kitten until I was 54. I'm a bit long in the tooth to be a sex symbol. I have three beautiful children; two sons and Victoria, my daughter I had with Peter. My eldest son, Nikolai, is getting married to a lovely girl later this year and I can't wait to become a grandmother. I celebrate my age and I'm happy because I believe in staying fit and healthy and slim. I look pretty good, my skin is clear and I'm happy with my hair, even if it's no longer quite so glorious as it used to be. As for plastic surgery, I have no problems with having work done on my face," Ekland admitted.
The question is: "What plastic surgeon experts believe about Britt Ekland's plastic surgery?"
Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has never treated Ekland, revealed to RadarOnline: "Britt looks like she's had quite a bit of work done. I suspect that she's had a facelift to smooth and tighten her jawline, a browlift and eyelid lifts to open her eyes, and injections of fat into her cheeks to plump them up."
Dr. Youn recommended that Ekland should stop plumping her cheeks and try Botox to smooth the crow's feet. Youn added that Ekland defied her age, but didn't seem natural. "She surely doesn't look her age, but she doesn't look natural, either! If I could give her two pieces of advice, it'd be to avoid any further plumping of her cheeks and to maybe try a touch of Botox into her crows feet," Dr. Youn advised.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer was quoted as saying: "Britt Ekland looks fabulous. She has certainly maintained her beautiful looks with multiple facial cosmetic surgeries such as an upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), eyebrow lift, rhinoplasty (nose job), lip augmentation and facelift."
