ELON Musk may have spent thousands on a beauty regimen to combat his hair loss and sagging skin, a plastic surgeon has claimed.
And he believes the billionaire entrepreneur’s celebrity makeover has been completed in the run-up to his Twitter coup in October.
In an exclusive interview, Dr. Richard Westreich told The US Sun: “I think Elon took care of his hair, his eyes and the sagging skin under his neck.
“Earlier this year he looked weird where you could see the kind of swelling you would get after a neck lift.
“He’s since recovered and doesn’t seem to have the odd fullness under his throat anymore.
“His possible neck lift could have cost as much as $60,000, but he may have also tried undereye fillers, which would have been a fat transfer that would have cost around $10,000.
“Otherwise, the shape of Elon’s hairline appears to have changed at least four times over the years, which would have cost around $40,000.”
Speculations about the Twitter owner’s changed appearance have circulated for years and have mostly focused on his hair and jaw surgery, which Elon has never confirmed or denied.
And since the 51-year-old Tesla founder has an estimated net worth of around $164 billion, delving into cosmetic surgery or a series of hair transplants would only be a drop in the bucket.
The neck lift he may have had is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck, resulting in a smoother, slimmer profile.
It can be done alone or in conjunction with fillers and even eye lifts.
“Usually it’s an incision under the chin and then around the ear and sometimes in front of the hairline,” explains Dr. Westreich, who specializes in facial plastic surgery.
“Elon seemed to have gained a lot of weight around 2015 and then he started losing it.
“Unfortunately, when aging is combined with this type of weight loss, the loose skin gets worse every year and leads to problems with skin sagging.
“With Elon, the problem would be all the loose neck that he’s experienced.
“It makes sense that after losing that weight he had a little more skin and he probably would have wanted his jawline to look tighter.
“You can see where he’s wearing the black bow tie at the 2015 event with Kanye West, he’s very heavy and has quite a bit of fat under his chin.
But in photos from 2002, it appears to be “what’s almost like an incision around his earlobe.”
dr Westreich said: “This is what his face looks like to me after the operation.
“Also there is discoloration that looks like bruises and the very unusual swelling under his chin.
“You can also see an indentation just behind his chin where there’s a bit of extra hair.”
While Elon may have been busy streamlining its looks in recent years, the noise surrounding its controversial Twitter acquisition has intensified, with recent calls for the CEO to resign.
At the same time, the South African-born tech star has become a paparazzi favorite while courting the media at some of the world’s most glamorous events, like the Met Gala.
Over the weekend he was photographed with Jared Kushner at the World Cup final in the VIP area of Qatar’s Lusail Stadium.
“Another thing that can happen as you get older and lose weight is cavities under your eyes,” reveals Dr. western empire
“Elon was very hollow before.
“And he’s not hollow anymore, so that was either filled in or put grease on his eye area.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a little botox in there too.
“His hair is also getting a bit shorter and seems to grow back over time as over the years you can see the hairline starting to fill in.
“Usually the last thing they fill in is the shape at the front of the hairline, which is getting flatter for Elon.
“In the beginning it looks very triangular so they did the middle triangle and then you can see the triangle gets flatter and flatter over many years, until now almost a very flat hairline and all in one line.
“Generally, grafts fill very slowly over many years, so he’s probably had a few rounds.
“Sometimes they just can’t transplant everything in one session, but you can see with Elon that the shape of his front hairline has changed at least four times.
“I don’t think Elon overdid it and changed things that are typical of a man who has become a celebrity.
“Elon is in the public eye all the time now.
“Some men don’t like the sagging skin under their necks anyway, and when they’re wearing ties and a collared shirt, it drives them crazy.
“The youngest Elon may look good in the photo wearing the black bow tie with Kanye West, but then unfortunately he’s overweight.”
