This plastic surgery expert has revealed the cosmetic procedures which he claims could explain the radical changes in Cristiano Ronaldo’s appearance.
The President of the Colombian Society of Plastic Surgery, Ernesto Barbosa, himself a surgeon, commented on the procedures he believes Ronaldo may have undergone in order to explain the radical changes in the forward’s appearance. He reportedly made the comments in 2015 but they have only just surfaced in local media.
Local media report Barbosa said Ronaldo could have gone through “at least five procedures” calling them “very positive” surgeries.
He reportedly said: “When one makes comparisons, he (could have) undergone some maxillofacial surgeries to improve his middle and bottom third. He (could have) had an osseous displacement in both his upper and lower jaw and besides that, as you can see from his teeth, he (could have) had his teeth aligned with orthodontics and smile design.”
The doctor used a picture of the Portuguese star from his time with Sporting Lisbon, when the athlete first entered the world of professional football, to compare the differences in the appearance of his face.
He told local media that his “nose is still the same but when he moved his jaw (maxillofacial) and bone, it changed a little bit”.
He went on to say: “His eyebrows, compared to how they were before, are now in a slightly different position. In the past, they were saggier but they are currently higher.”
According to the plastic surgery expert, Ronaldo could also have had “liposculpture with ultrasound that allows the definition of the abdominals”.
It is unclear if Cristiano Ronaldo has undergone cosmetic surgery.
