The veteran actor Ray Liotta’s career has endured the test of time. His face has been said to defy his age, from his soap opera days on ‘Another World’ to his evil cop role on ‘Shades of Blue.’

Ray Liotta is a well-known actor who has been in films such as “Goodfellas” (1990) and “Field of Dreams” (1989). His boyish good looks add a fascinating contrast to his film performances, especially when he played a tough gangster with a soft face like Henry Hill in “Goodfellas.”

Although Ray Liotta has not publicly disclosed his plastic surgery experience, it is widely assumed that he has had work done on his face. The actor has reportedly had at least one facelift.

So, is there any truth behind Ray Liotta’s plastic surgery rumor mill? Let’s find out:

Ray Liotta’s Age-Defying Looks

During his heyday as a mobster in ‘Goodfellas,’ Ray Liotta was regarded as a good-looking man. He has appeared in over 100 films during his career and continues to have a stronghold in Hollywood.

His visage has created some controversy in recent years, largely due to rumors concerning his plastic surgery. According to pundits, evidence of cosmetic surgeries is littered all over his face when comparing his photos from ten years ago and now.

In 2014, Liotta sued Nerium International, a skincare company, for using his face to market their line of anti-aging treatments. The complaint stems from the fact that they did not seek his consent before their action.

The fact that this corporation decided to use Ray Liotta’s visage to sell their products demonstrates that he is still thought to look younger than his age.

Ray Liotta is suspected of receiving botox injections and facial fillers in addition to the alleged facelifts.

His jawline, which is not natural for a 65+-year-old man, is considered to have been lifted. Doctors who have weighed in say he appears to have had work done on his eyes, corners of his mouth, and laugh lines.

Overall, the speculation about Ray Liotta’s plastic surgery stems from his appearance, which is considerably different from what one would expect of a middle-aged guy.

What Experts Have to Say about Ray Liotta’s Plastic Surgery?

Dr. Anthony Youn, a board-certified plastic surgeon, believes that Liotta has had at least a few trips to the plastic surgeon over the past decade or so. He said:

Ray appears to have had at least a few trips to the plastic surgeon over the past decade or so. His upper eyelids are more open than they used to be, possibly signifying an upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty.

Dr. Youn added:

His jawline is tighter than it should be at his age, a possible sign of a previous face and neck lift.
And his mouth and smile lines appear to have been altered. The corners of his mouth are elevated, almost with a ‘joker-type’ smile, and his smile lines appear blunted and almost nonexistent.

The surgeon suspected that the change in Liotta’s mouth and smile lines is possibly due to the aggressive use of Restylane.

Restylane dermal fillers and Skinboosters help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, enhance contours, and improve the appearance of the skin.

Dr. Youn said:

I suspect the appearance of his mouth and smile lines could be due to aggressive injections of a filler like Restylane. Overall he looks very different than I would have expected him to look at this age!

Fame and success in Hollywood are transient and ephemeral. If one wants to remain relevant, refreshing one’s appearance might become a necessary evil.
