Douglas and the face that put back the clock

Smooth forehead and chiselled jawline: Michael Douglas

For a 60-year-old, the look is eerily fresh-faced.

So if speculation about a facelift is true, at least he seems to have got his money's worth.

As reported in the Daily Mail, Douglas arrived in Barbados with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones two weeks ago showing all the signs of recent cosmetic surgery. Scars on both sides of his face were bleeding.

On the beach a few days later, his slimmer physique suggested possible liposuction and a tummy tuck.

Close examination of his face now reveals a dramatic reduction in the number of wrinkles around his eyes and the bags under them. His forehead lines are gone and his eyebrows also appear to have been lifted.

Behind his fuzzy greying beard - grown presumably to disguise the scars still to heal from the surgery - the tightened skin around his neck and chin has also given him back the chiseljawed looks he had in his early 40s, when he starred as Gordon Gekko in the film Wall Street.

This is said not to be Douglas's first encounter with the cosmetic surgeon's art. He reportedly paid £7,000 to 'freshen up' his features with a face and eye lift before marrying Miss Zeta-Jones, who is 25 years his junior.

She in turn reportedly had an eye lift at 31 because she was concerned about fine wrinkles.
