What Changes Did Nicole Kidman Make To Her Face? (2024)

Nicole Kidman has had an interesting Hollywood journey. From Oscar-recognized performances to her whirlwind marriage with Tom Cruise and a missed date with Jimmy Fallon, she's certainly given fans plenty to talk about over the years. And at the age of 54, the actress continues to make headlines — such as for her role as Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos, and for how she's managed to age gracefully all these years.

She's played a diverse set of roles in the last decade, yet she was never stuck in tropes typically given to women her age in Hollywood. It's intrigued fans and plastic surgeons alike — did the Eyes Wide Shut star get anything done on her face? Here's the truth about her transformation throughout the years.

Plastic Surgeons Weigh In On Nicole Kidman's Transformation

In the last years, critics have made comments about Kidman's "inability" to make dramatic facial expressions. According to dual-certified Las Vegas cosmetic surgeon Dr. Samir Pancholi, Kidman's "stiff" face and youthfulness could actually be owed to botox and fillers.

"Nicole naturally has high cheekbones. However, they do appear plumper and less defined than they have in recent years," Pancholi told The List. "This is likely the result of repeated Botox treatments, as regular neurotoxin injections can cause facial muscles to soften over time. The smoothness and elasticity of her skin are superb and there is a fullness of her mid-face area which indicates the use of filler."

Dr. Pancholi also pointed out where the Aquaman star may have gone a little overboard. "I do think Nicole has had maybe a touch too much Botox in her brow, which has caused it to droop slightly," he noted. "However, photos may exaggerate this visual because she is so tall and often looks down in photos. Overall, I think Nicole looks naturally beautiful for her age, which, in addition to cosmetic injections, is likely also attributed to a healthy diet and exercise routine, proper sunscreen application, and good skincare practices."

So we're guessing it's 80% self-care. After all, Kidman follows an 80-20 diet — eating mostly healthy foods, and in moderation. Growing up, her family was also into running half-marathons. She regularly exercises, from running to swimming, spinning classes, tennis sessions, vinyasa or ashtanga yoga, and bike rides with her kids.

However, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Manish Shah and Dr. Matthew Schulman insist that Kidman had surgical work done. "If I had to guess on a possible procedure, it looks like she has had a mini-facelift," Dr. Shah, who has not treated the actress, told Life & Style. "Her jawline is so tight and you can really outline the muscles of her neck. She also has a tell-tale shadow and crease in front of her ear that looks surgical to me." Dr. Schulman also noticed the change in the Bombshell star's brows and upper eyelid.

"She also looks like she’s had a temporal brow lift because the tail of her eyebrow looks lifted and her upper eyelid area is more hollow appearing," said the NYC surgeon. "Nicole has always had flawless skin and this may be from good genetics or a little help from good daily skincare products, chemical peels or lasers."

Again, it's all about proper maintenance. Kidman has a low-maintenance routine for dry and sensitive skin. Her skincare routine consists of vitamin C serum, La Mer Crème moisturizer, Sera Labs Seratopical Day & Night Brilliance Cream with CBD, Sera Labs Seratopical Love Your Eyes Anti-Aging Serum with CBD, and Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50. You're welcome.

What Nicole Kidman Has Said About The Plastic Surgery Rumors

Kidman has consistently denied getting plastic surgery. "To be honest, I am completely natural. I have nothing in my face or anything," she said. "No surgery for me; I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again… I wear sunscreen, I don’t smoke and I take care of myself, and I am proud to say that."

But if fans want to hack their way into fine aging like Kidman, sans the disciplined active lifestyle, then fans might want to take Jane Fonda's recommendations.

Although the Barbarella star puts exercise on top of her beauty secrets, she's admitted to having a full facelift in her 40s, a second facelift in her 70s, a chin lift, and eye surgery to get rid of her eyebags. And the reason why it all looks natural on her? She prefers maintaining parts of her face that define her.

"I made sure that they kept my lines," she said. "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."
