Ben Affleck seems to have gotten a new face for his new life as a single man! The actor recently debuted a youthful new look, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that his cosmetic procedures quickly turned into utter disaster.
“He looks different –– but he doesn’t look better,” board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lyle Back, who has not treated the star, said of the ordeal. “In fact, he doesn’t look like himself at all!”
After the 43-year-old came under fire for allegedly cheating on soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Garner with the children’s nanny, sources say he was inspired to change his look. (Affleck denied the affair.)
Unfortunately for Affleck, the transformation did not bring a desirable outcome.
“He’s had the entire upper third of his face worked on, and the result is he looks more like Jack Nicholson‘s Joker than Batman,” Dr. Back said.
Dr. Back told Radar that Affleck has also undergone plenty of Botox over his eyes, leaving a perpetually surprised expression on his face.
“A small amount of Botox fills your wrinkles and makes you look relaxed and well rested,” Dr. Back explained. “He’s had so much put in that his eyebrows look jacked up and he’s just downed 50 cups of coffee.”
To make matters worse, Dr. Back believes that Affleck has also undergone cosmetic procedures on his perpetually puffy eyelids.
“Again, it’s a case of too much work where only a little was needed,” he said. “Fat and skin has been trimmed from both above and below the eyes, and it’s so starkly different that he might as well be Kenny Rogers.”
Other experts surmised that Affleck recently opted for cheek fillers and laser skin treatments as well –– but it’s gone too far.
“He’s got skin as smooth as a 20-year-old,” said Dr. Anthony Youn of the actor’s treatments.
“It’s way too much. He’s lost the definition in his face and it’s actually feminized him a bit,” Dr. Back countered. “It’s a pretty-boy baby face that doesn’t belong on him. If he was just trying to look like he’s not getting older –– he failed. If he was trying to look like Justin Bieber –– it’s a bull’s-eye!”
