Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is not only famous for his culinary talents, but he also has a reputation for having a fiery personality especially when it comes to his number one passion, FOOD!
Due to his controversial TV persona, it wasn’t long before the public scrutinized Gordon’s looks. Every time he started shouting and swearing, people easily noticed his wrinkles, which seemed to be getting deeper with age.
Recently, however, Gordon looks a lot different in his public appearances. In fact, he was looking much younger. His face is not dry like it used to be and those deep lines seem to have faded too.
So, many people wondered if he got plastic surgery, including me.
Before & After Photos
How did Gordon manage to turn back the clock? We have done the research below.
Did Gordon Ramsay have a facelift?
Maybe it’s his Scottish genes, but Gordon’s face is full of wrinkles, especially on his forehead and chin. They appear on all of his photos.
A few years later, however, those deep lines have been slowly disappearing, which led us to believe that Gordon might have had a facelift.
While the TV chef has only admitted to having laser wrinkle treatment and not a face surgery, I still find it a little hard to believe.
Regardless, whatever procedure he got has definitely altered his appearance and softened his look. He looks more friendly, pleasant, and approachable.
Did he get botox injections?
Based on the comparison photos above, there is little doubt that Gordon used botox for his sagging skin. The chef himself has actually admitted it too.
Even if he didn’t, I’d say he has gotten face fillers to add some volume to his cheeks and to help cover those deep lines. The difference in these before and after pictures is huge!
That man on the left looks about five years older. The man on the right looks so fresh, even though his face appears a little puffy.
Has Gordon had a hair transplant?
I think it is quite possible.
Gordon used to have a receding hairline, as evidenced in this before photo. Hair loss comes as no surprise too since his hot-tempered nature on TV likely brings him a lot of stress.
But something changed in his hair in recent times and it seems like Gordon has done something to correct those thinning patches.
He looks a lot better so if this is true, it is a job well done!
What happened to Ramsay’s chin scars?
When he was just new on TV, Gordon’s chin had very deep lines. Rumor says that those are chin scars and they were from a rough game of Rugby during his youth. Gordon, however, never publicly discussed how he got them.
Those lines have literally disappeared these days. Now I don’t know if a scar removal procedure can correct such imperfections but I think it may require a little more work than that.
Gordon Ramsay: Then and Now
Let’s check out Gordon’s transformation over the years. See how he looks in his younger days and compare how he looks now.
Young Gordon Ramsay looked like he couldn’t hurt a fly in this photo. Maybe he was about four years old here and had that typical apple haircut as a child. He looked so cute with his big blue eyes and round face shape.
Gordon as teenager
As a teen, Gordon was into football, fishing, and other sports. He had lots of hair too.
He apparently wanted to pursed a career as a football player, but due to an injury that set him back from becoming a professional athlete, Gordon studied culinary arts instead.
Gordon in 1980s
As a happy and handsome young adult in the ’80s, Gordon got his education in the kitchen of Marco Pierre White. The prominent chef and restaurant owner was known for his temperament and there were stories that he made Gordon cry.
Gordon in 1990s
When Gordon opened his first restaurant in the 90s, hair loss wasn’t a problem yet and there were not many wrinkles on his face, except on his forehead. He also looked chubbier.
Gordon in 2004
At 38 years old, Gordon became a TV star and wore a familiar hairstyle. Though he still looks quite young, he had lines on his face that TV makeup couldn’t cover.
I’ve never noticed this before, but Gordon has really big ears!
Gordon in 2008
Gordon might be pushing himself too hard by appearing on several TV shows week after week. At 42, he’s looking old and tired. This is quite a transformation after only four years and yes, he’s losing hair too!
Gordon in 2012
Besides running his million dollar empire, Ramsay likes to maintain a lifestyle balance of healthy food and exercise. Here, he joins his youthful wife, Tana, during the Virgin London Marathon in England.
Reports say the couple regularly workout together to maintain a healthy body.
Gordon in 2014
Gordon debuted a new face at Elton John’s Oscar party.
Besides all the things that we have discussed, I think he might have had a brow lift too. His eyes seemed to have opened up more compared to before when they were quite droopy.
He has definitely lost weight.
Gordon in 2017
A smartly dressed Gordon Ramsay attended the Emmy Awards looking as dashing as James Bond. His body shape looked so toned and fit in this red carpet photo, but we don’t suspect he had liposuction. Instead, we think his secret is diet and exercise. Around this time, he also started a line of healthy recipes for Fit Food.
Gordon in 2018
At 52 years old, Ramsay simply couldn’t look any better.
Apparently, Gordon is good friends with Simon Cowell and has been taking his advice anti-aging department. It shows, right?
Gordon in 2021
Looks like the TV chef has stepped away from the kitchen this year hosting a new game show called, Bank Balance.
With a better-looking face, I don’t blame him.
What did Gordon say about his appearance?
Gordon Ramsay openly talked about the cosmetic work done on his face. He revealed that he sought the help of a plastic surgeon after his encounter with his children.
I’ve got four children, and they’d say: ‘Dad, why have you got so many wrinkles on your face when Clementine’s daddy has no wrinkles?’ The lines were pretty horrific, like Scarface, and I was never embarrassed by it but my children helped me become more paranoid about it.
He also discussed what Simon Cowell’s advice was about his appearance.
Simon Cowell suggested that now I’m a success in America, I should do something, so I had a filler put under the deep crevices. It hurt.
Makeup artists in Hollywood also suggested Gordon should get cosmetic enhancements. So, he had a laser wrinkle removal procedure.
It took four minutes each side, lasered not Botoxed. No one noticed until I mentioned it. When you don’t say anything you’re classified as a liar, so you can’t win.
Gordon, however, said that his doctor did not want to touch his forehead. That might completely change the essence of the celebrity chef people have come to know on television.
