Liam Payne Shocks With New Facial Look, Fans Speculate About Plastic Surgery
Liam Payne is turning heads thanks to his chiseled new look.
On Thursday (Mar. 16), the "Strip That Down" singer walked the London red carpet for the premiere of his former One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson's documentary, All of Those Voices.
When photos of Payne began to circulate, fans speculated that Payne underwent some sort of plastic surgery for his jawline and cheekbone area.
Some fans theorized that he underwent the viral buccal fat removal procedure which other celebrities have done to achieve a more defined jaw and cheekbones. During the procedure doctors cut out the fat pads from the inside of the cheeks, which in turn gives a defined and angular look.
Payne previously spoke out about his appearance on The Diary of a CEO podcast. He revealed he suffered from "moments of suicidal ideation" due to struggles with addiction.
"There is some stuff that I’ve definitely never spoken about to do with it. It was really, really, really severe. It was a problem," he shared.
It wasn't until he saw photos of himself in the press that he decided to cut alcohol and drugs out of his life.
"There were a few pictures of me on a boat and I was all bloated out and I call it my pills-and-booze face," Payne said. "My face was 10 times bigger than it is now. The problem was, the best way to secure us was to lock us in our rooms, and what is in the room? A mini-bar."
At the time of this article's publication, Payne has not responded to plastic surgery rumors.
While some online trolls poked fun at the look, many fans showered him with love and support.
