Did Jane Fonda Have Plastic Surgery?

Updated on

Jane Fonda has been in the acting business since the 1960s and became a cultural icon in the 80s. Back then, Jane ushered a fitness revolution with the release of her exercise videos that sold millions of copies worldwide.

Now at 81, the public often wonder how Jane looks so good. Her face doesn’t age much and one could argue that she has a body of a 50 year old, at worst. This led to many plastic surgery speculations.

Despite a few wrinkles on her face today, people speculated that the “9 to 5” actress had a facelift and gets regular botox.

With an illustrious Hollywood career and a keen business sense, Jane certainly has the money to find a great doctor to make her look ageless.

But did she?

Before & After Photos

Has Jane had cosmetic surgery long before it became the norm in Hollywood? Let’s compare some photos of the superstar to validate.

Did Jane Fonda Have Facelift?

Did Jane Fonda Have Facelift?

Jane’s face has obvious lines and wrinkles, so it can’t hide the fact that she’s truly aging. But after comparing these before and after photos, we can see that the wrinkles around her eyes and mouth have greatly reduced. So this suggests to us that she might’ve had a facelift to smoothen those areas.

Her facial skin clearly looks tighter too so whatever she’s done, have reversed her age by as much as 15 years.

Did She Get an Eye Lift?

Based on this photo evidence, we think there’s a good chance Jane had an eye lift.

The loosened skin around her eyes seems to have tightened. Her eye bags have also faded.

If true, then her plastic surgeon didn’t overdo it because there are some leftover fine lines which made it look natural.

Has Jane Fonda Had Botox?

We can see signs that Jane may have used botox injections to keep her skin stretched and taut. At her age, her face cheeks should be drooping but you don’t see it here.

If you look closely, her cheek area looks especially plump and this is often the result of face fillers.

What do you think?

Does Jane Have Breast Implants?

Does Jane Fonda Have Boob Job?

While it might be surprising for a woman in her 70s or 80s to get breast implants but the chance is there.

If you look at the comparison above, her after photo shows a much fuller chest than before, where she hardly had boobs or even a cleavage.

Some may argue that this could be her choice of outfit that shaped her body this way. We certainly wouldn’t disagree because for someone her age to get a boob job is quite risky, don’t you think?

Jane Fonda: Then and Now

Let’s see how Jane has transformed over the past 80 years of her amazing life.

Early Childhood

During the ’60s, Jane did at least two films a year and thus became one of the biggest stars of that decade. Color photographs became the norm then, which highlighted her beauty even more.

The actress with an attractive face shape looked so alluring this photo with her lush cheekbones and big beady eyes, which we doubt needed enhancement like an eyelid surgery. Jane also has imperfect big teeth, which we think makes her smile look sexier.

Fonda became an activist in the ’70s and was called “Hanoi Jane” for supporting the end of the Vietnam Wars. She also won two Oscar Best Actress honors during this decade. With her hipster haircut and clothing choices, Jane had the look and style of the ’70s down to pat.

She had a mainstream movie hit in the ’80s with “9 to 5,” along with best friends Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. This was also the year she launched her fitness empire, where she released a series of workout videos.

Her wavy hair and gorgeous blue eyes were on most home’s television as women everywhere followed her aerobics routines to obtain her body.

The actress had prominent laugh lines on her face back then. We think this made her look very authentic and approachable.

Year 1990

This was the year Jane announced that she was retiring from the movies after three decades.

At 53 years old, she still looks young for her age, however, the talks of plastic surgery became louder. People also grew curious of Jane’s skincare routine.

Year 2000

At a Vanity Fair Oscar party, Jane toppled other stars when she graced the event looking so stunning. She wore a silver gown with an eye catching necklace to match. The dress that hugged her body shape so well sparked rumors of a boob job and a tummy tuck.

But would Jane, the health buff, get a liposuction in her ’60s?

We highly doubt it.

Despite her retirement, Jane did another movie with Jennifer Lopez in “Monster in Law.” She showed up at the premiere with a chic cut for her hair. Though she had fine lines around her eyes, Jane still managed to look younger than her 63 year old self. Obviously, she had help from quality cosmetics and skincare products to look this great.

Year 2010

Now 73 years of age, signs of aging on her skin has definitely caught up with time. Jane’s face registered deep lines and wrinkles, as well as obvious crows feet all around her eyes.

Year 2013

But a few years later, Jane reversed her age by having her skin tightened with a possible facelift. Does this look like a 76 year old woman to you?

Some experts believe Jane also had an eye lift and a neck lift to achieve this younger look.

It’s quite possible she wore the collar in this photo to hide the scar from the procedure. Clever woman!

Year 2017

Jane Fonda stunned the crowd when she attended the Oscars in a hot pink gown and ponytail hairstyle that belied her age. She also changed her hair color to a lighter shade, matched her lipstick to her dress and finished off her makeup with fake eyelashes.

It’s amazing how a woman her age could get away with this look!

Year 2018

At 80, Jane looks at least 2 decades younger than her real age. Her skin looks nearly flawless, apart from some lines around her eyes.

What Did Jane Say About Plastic Surgery?

Speaking with The Guardian, Jane Fonda admitted she had cosmetic procedures and she’s grateful for it.

I wish I were brave enough to not do plastic surgery but I think I bought myself a decade.

But if people wonder why she’s not completely wrinkle-free, Jane said she did not try to hide some of the lines on her face.

I made sure that they kept my lines. I didn’t want to lose my wrinkles; I just wanted to lose the bags under my eyes. I don’t like it when it’s overdone, but we do live in a time when, if you can afford a good doctor, you can have subtle plastic surgery.

In terms of her breasts, she revealed she did not get breast implants in her ’70s but she temporarily had protheses on her body and loved the reaction she got from people for her fake breasts.
