Dr. Gary Linkov, a certified facial plastic surgeon who has examined many famous features, detailed the former New England Patriots quarterback's face from 2001, when he was 24.
Brady's frontotemporal recession and unique eyebrows were the "ideal" look for guys, he declared in a 2022 YouTube video. Linkov speculated that Brady underwent feminization surgery in 2002 after seeing his significant forehead crest removed.
Linkov feared Brady had Botox in 2022. "At the age of 45, now I'm starting to see some signs of Botox," Linkov said at the end of his film, referring to the retired quarterback's "smoother appearance to his forehead" and "reduced animation."
On September 5, 2023, Brady appeared more different than ever in an NFL commercial video, sparking further Botox rumors! As predicted, people noticed the difference!
One follower commented, "Dude needs to chill on the plastic surgery," while another labeled him "Botox city Jesus," and another "Botox Brady." "The plastic surgery is creepy," said another devotee. Another hypothesized, "He definitely got buccal fat removal," which leads to our last point.
After retiring earlier this year, the seven-time Super Bowl champion looked dramatically different, which the internet attributes to buccal fat removal surgery. After his divorce from Gisele Bündchen, was it his way to shine? The change in his cheeks is hard to miss.
In his film, Linkov remarked that Brady had lost lateral and medial cheek fat, which may be part of aging. Brady's look in 2023 was not taken into consideration in the 2022 video, therefore he may have had the disputed buccal fat reduction since then.
