At 58, Ellen Barkin still holds her own among the young Hollywood starlets, and now she looks better than she has in years!

At the NBC UpFronts in New York City on May 14, the Ocean’s Thirteen star appeared to have refreshed her face with surgery but while many older actresses go over the top, “She looks better than she used to,” celebrity plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, said in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.

“I suspect that she's had a facelift, causing her face to look tight and a bit pulled,” Dr. Youn told RadarOnline.com. “Her face appears terribly tight nowadays, as if she's in a wind tunnel but if it was done recently, I suspect that she will look more and more natural with time.”

Barkin opened up about the aging process and her secrets to looking great at over 50 to Oprah.com five years ago, when she revealed that she wasn’t a fan of Botox.

“I don't like the way it makes people look. Too many people go overboard, and for an actress, that's deadly. It keeps you from being able to have expressions,” said Ellen.

Instead, she explained her dream was to get, “Just a tighter version of my face.”

While Barkin appears to have softened her attitude about plastic surgery and attained her dream of tightness, Dr. Youn still thinks she is opting for other less restrictive injectables over Botox.

“She appears to have had filler injections to some of the wrinkles of her face, causing her to look smooth,” he explained.

Whatever she has had done, Ellen isn’t going to let age get in the way of living life to the fullest. “Old is the new sexy!” gushed the Modern Family guest star, who happily flaunted a boy toy 31 years younger her junior last year.
