Lorraine’s secret facelift? Surgeon reveals verdict on her new ‘tight’ face
she’s looking younger than ever, and fans can’t help but wonder if Lorraine has had a secret cosmetic procedure
‘Jowls can start to sag with age’
At the age of 58, there is simply no denying that Lorraine Kelly is looking far younger than her years.
And after she hosted her regular morning chat show recently, fans have been commenting that the presenter’s face appeared to be particularly tighter than usual.
‘She’s another one who looks to have been messing with her face. Why is it that too many women in the limelight have to do this when it’s so obvious that they have had work done?’ one fan commented. While another wrote, ‘What has she done to her face? Looks like Botox and fillers have changed the shape of her face.’
Despite Lorraine previously admitting her youthful complexion was down to the use of a £350 moisturiser morning and night, John Ryan of MYA Cosmetic Surgery believes the star may have had some work done.
‘It is possible that Lorraine underwent non-surgical treatments,’ he explains. ‘The area at the bottom of the cheeks – often referred to as the jowls – can start to sag with age as soft tissue becomes deflated over time.’
And when you consider that Lorraine is gracing our screens daily, it’s understandable that she may want a little bit of help to reduce visible signs of the ageing process. An insider close to the TV personality has even revealed to Woman’s Own that the subtler the better as far as Lorraine’s concerned. ‘Lorraine knows looking young is a key part of her job – she’s the first thing a lot of people see on TV in the mornings,’ our insider reveals. ‘She wouldn’t want to make any drastic changes, it’s all about subtle ones that help her age gracefully.’ John Ryan adds that one of the non-surgical treatments that could have helped Lorraine rewind the hands of time is a type of non-invasive ‘facelift’.
‘A potential procedure that Lorraine may have had is the non-surgical procedure known as a Silhouette lift. This treatment is also known as the “one-stitch facelift” as it involves placing a fine thread (or stitch) down the cheeks or jawline,’ he reveals.
‘The thread pulls up sagging skin from the inside, giving a more defined and youthful look. The treatment is done under local anaesthetic, takes just
hours and has very minimal downtime, so it’s possible Lorraine could have recovered very quickly.’
John adds that it’s very possible Lorraine would have been able to have undergone the procedure without anyone noticing, as it is said to also offer a low risk of leaving bruising to the face.
‘Any bruising will be light and can always be hidden with make-up – ideal if you’re on camera every day,’ he continues.
However, this isn’t the only procedure the expert believes Lorraine could have indulged in, as he revealed that fillers may have also played a part in enhancing the mum-of-one’s flawless complexion.
‘Lorraine looks like she has had cheek fillers – which is a very common treatment for women her age,’ John goes on. ‘The fillers give volume to the cheek area and help lift the sagging skin around the jowls.’
However, Lorraine has always been very open about her views on surgery, with the star previously admitting, ‘I’ve seen far too many people looking like Klingons [an alien race from Star Trek] and I don’t want to look like that.’
That is why this non-surgical process might have been the perfect solution for Lorraine, with our insider adding, ‘Lorraine is someone who has always had strong opinions on celebs with botched surgery, so it’s very important to her that she doesn’t go down that road.’
Beauty and diet regimes
Over the years, Lorraine’s always credited her youthful looks not only to regular moisturising, but also down to a sensible regime of healthy eating. ‘I just eat well and moisturise lots because my mum always told me to,’ she confessed. Lorraine has previously said that she would never have cosmetic surgery, explaining, ‘Nope! I would never do it. I think you can always tell. When people put their make-up on, it has a sort of waxy sheen. Also, I think it’s odd. Why would you put something in your face that is not going to make you have any expression?’ But bearing in mind her recent appearance and the comments on it, could Lorraine have relaxed her stance?
