Zac Efron Face: The Truth Behind The Plastic Surgery Rumors

The video also featured the likes of Justin Bieber, Dixie D’Amelio, Bill Nye, and Steve Aoki. Many fans concluded that the actor had gone under the knife to enhance his facial features, but the procedure went south. Some also blamed the situation on botox injections that might not have gone the way the actor wished.

But is there any truth behind the rumors? We have all the answers so keep reading.

However, once the rumors hit the internet, many fans and surgery experts proposed different theories on what the High School Musical star may have done to his face. According to celebrated plastic surgeon and YouTuber, Dr. Youn, Zac Efron may have done dental surgery. He explained that Efron may have had his wisdom teeth pulled out and that may have contributed to his swollen face.

He also suggested that the Neighbors star appeared to have done some kind of intensive dental surgery that has resulted in the distention of his face.

According to Dr. Anthony Youn, “Has he had surgery to reshape his jawline, Botox or fillers? I don’t think so. I actually think he has had dental surgery, not plastic surgery. That’s why [his face] is swollen”. 

However, many internet users didn’t agree with the doctor’s comments. According to some fans, the doctor was just climbing on the back of the ‘Zac Efron face’ brouhaha to catapult himself and his career into stardom.

One notable person who sided with the fans was the celebrated Australian talk show host Kyle Sandilands who claimed that Zac Efron’s face change rumors were fake. Sandilands claimed that if indeed the actor had done something to his face, she would be the first to know. She concluded that Efron was a very handsome lad and as such didn’t need to alter his appearance.

What Zac Efron Said About His Face

The actor himself has not admitted nor denied the plastic surgery rumors. However, even if he had gone under the knife he wouldn’t be the first celebrity to do so. Many celebrities who were not pleased with parts of their bodies enhanced those features through all sorts of surgeries.

What appears to make Zac’s case a curious one is because of his natural looks. Many fans agree that Zac Efron has one of the most handsome faces in Hollywood today. The actor has consistently made the list of the sexiest men in the movie industry so it would be a bit surprising if he decided to change his looks.

After all, who would want to change a perfect look? However, if the actor had indeed undergone surgery, then it apparently didn’t go well since many fans think that the surgery was botched.

Zac Efron’s appearance has changed over the years since he starred in the movie High School Musical. However, it may be due to several factors such as aging, heavy makeup, exercise, and excellent editing skills. The actor once confessed that he had to get ripped for his role as Matt Brody in the 2017 Comedy, Baywatch, and though some fans swooned over his ripped body, Zac despised it.

According to the actor, the ripped beach body was ‘stupid’ because of the amount of energy and time it took to achieve. During an interview on the popular series, Hot Ones, Zac explained that he wasn’t against looking good or healthy, but the mental and physical toll it took on him.

“…I realized when I was done with that movie I don’t ever want to be in good shape again. Really. It was so hard. You’re working with no wriggle room. You’ve got things like water under your skin you’re worrying about. Making your six-pack into a four-pack…it’s just stupid. It’s just not real.”

The actor continued, “…I’m happy that it worked. I’m happy that it got me through it. I may do it again if it was something worthwhile but let’s wait till it gets to that. Take care of your heart. Take care of your brain. I’m good.”

Zac Efron’s Facial Injury in 2013

Zac’s popularity means that whatever he does is carefully scrutinized, thus back in 2013, his face became a subject of discussion. The 34-year-old slipped in front of his Los Angeles villa and broke his jaw, requiring a few stitches. The freak accident was caused by a puddle of water that the actor failed to see in time.

Fortunately, Zac Efron didn’t suffer any major setbacks and was well in no time. The rumors began to swell that the actor had undergone dental surgery, but Zac did not respond to any of those rumors, leaving fans to the figments of their imaginations.

Our Verdict on Zac Efron’s Face

The truth is Zac Efron’s face has seen some changes from his puffy cheeks to his more squared out jawline. Scrolling through his Instagram photos, it is easy to spot the changes but would be difficult to point out when they occurred. The photos are a mixture of his personal life and behind the scenes of projects, he is working on, thus making it difficult to piece together a timeline.

Some of the pictures show him with a full beard while others show him with a clean shave. For instance, a recent web series, Down To Earth With Zach Efron, shows him wearing a beard while his mini-series Dubai Presents: A Five-Star Mission, shows him with a clean- shave.

Thus, what we think is that the Hollywood star is just aging, and as common with everyone, aging comes with a lot of physical changes. Zac is no more the fresh-faced guy we met in 2006 and fell in love with. He is now in his mid-thirties and therefore has experienced some physical changes that correspond with his age.

Some movies have also seen the American actor with facial prosthetics thus, pictures from those scenes may have fueled the rumors of oral surgery. However, since the actor has not denied or confirmed the rumor of undergoing surgery, we can’t possibly rule out the fact that he’s done it.

And even if he did, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, we only hope that he doesn’t end up on the list of celebrities with a botched surgery.

Meanwhile, the Ted Bundy actor has starred in the movie The Greatest Beer Run Ever directed by Peter Farrelly and it features Russel Crowe, Bill Murray, and Viggo Mortensen.

Set to be released later this year, the movie tells the true story of how John Donahue brought beer from New York to his friend in Vietnam. So, keep an eye out for it.
