Her 2005 autobiography "A Lotus in the Mud" reportedly reveals that Goldie has in fact undergone breast augmentation in addition to frequenting cosmetic doctors for skin smoothing injections (perhaps laser resurfacing or Botox).
She has expressed her surprise in a 1992 edition of People magazine (vol.37 No.3):
"Why would somebody want to talk about plastic surgery? I don’t think it’s anybody’s business."
Goldie Hawn may occasionally fall victim to another celebrity plastic surgery rumor-mill but she has been allowed to age gracefully. This is attributed to her healthy lifestyle and not multiple trips under the knife.
Many are left wondering, though, with those beautifully arched cheekbones and full lips, if the iconic actress has in fact gone under the knife for some touch up work.
The overall consensus seems to be, that even if she has in fact had some work done, it’s not over the top and she is still as beautiful as ever.
On the other hand though, weighing 115 pounds at 5’6”, Goldie Hawn would appear to be a more likely candidate for touch up work on facial features and not more invasive procedures like liposuction.
Besides what was told in her autobiography, Goldie Hawn has managed to keep her surgery secrets under wraps while keeping the words true "less is more."
Dr. Paul S. Nassif has been quoted on MakeMeHeal.com stating "Goldie Hawn may have had filler injected to her lips, as they do appear more pouty in certain photos. Overall, if filler was injected, it was not too overdone. Her look still appears natural."
The "trout pout" look is a nickname given when the filler starts to wear off and a noticeably uneven effect is left in the injection site. For Goldie Hawn, this may be a result of Restylane or Juvederm.
On the flipside, many Hollywood critics have noted that Goldie Hawn’s face looks much different now than when she started in the film industry. Other critics would claim that some plastic surgery may do her some favors.
Recent pictures show Goldie Hawn with a larger, upper lip and cheekbones that appear to be lifted or possible implants.Her natural glowing beauty shines through, although her skin is showing aging, especially on her neck and chest.
There are plastic surgeons that beleive that Goldie Hawn has gone overboard with plastic surgery! According to celebrity plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated Goldie Hawn "The actress has looked a tad puffy recently, with cheeks that appear to have been plumped by fat grafting. In addition, some of her wrinkle lines look filled and blunted, likely with an injectable like Restylane. Also, her skin is taut and smooth, a possible result of laser treatments. I suspect that a facelift has contributed to her sharp jaw line, which is unnaturally tight for a 66-year old woman," Dr. Youn added.
While it's more than obvious that Goldie had a lot of work done, the doctor approves of how she did it but considers she should slow down and realize that enough is enough.
"Overall, Goldie looks youthful, happy, and at least 15 years younger than her real age. Even so, I recommend that she let things settle down a bit before having any further treatments. She should stop so she doesn't look like she belongs in the First Wives Club!" Dr. Youn said.
There are some plastic surgeons that don't seem to agree with Dr. Youn's estimation and claim that Goldie doesn’t seem to have had nearly as much plastic surgery as many credit her with. In fact, they suggest that she could likely benefit from some facial procedures to reduce the bags around her eyes and tighten the skin on her neck.
Plastic surgeon Dr Sherrell J Aston says, "In my opinion, Goldie Hawn looks great. With that said, there are several procedures she could do to improve her overall appearance. I would recommend a Face Lift, Neck Lift and Blepharoplasty. Ms. Hawn would also benefit from laser resurfacing to combat years of sun damage. In addition to those surgical procedures I would suggest that she try a diferent hairstyle with a softer color that compliments her facial features and skin tone."
To date, Goldie’s procedures seem to be pretty minor, and likely involve subtle fillers rather than invasive procedures. Instead of drastic plastic surgery, Goldie usually wears concealing make-up and hides flaws behind her signature shaggy mane of golden locks.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery says: "Goldie Hawn is not one of the women out there who appears to be overdone with plastic surgery. She may have had some Botox and minor facial work done which is apparent in certain photos, but nothing over the top."
Plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Ellenbogen states: "Goldie Hawn seems to have lost some of that silly grin and sparkle in the eye. There is a joke that goes: in 1950 everybody wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, but in 2000 nobody wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando. No one can stay young forever. Goldie is one of my favorite actresses. Charles Dickens used to create a hero then spend the rest of the book breaking him down and we do that with celebrities. We judge too sharply…her plastic surgeon should have his picture up and ridiculed, not Goldie…leave her alone."
