Has Audrey Hepburn Had Plastic Surgery?

By Emel Gerdaneri • Medical review by Berat Cigdem, MD

Has Audrey Hepburn Had Plastic Surgery?

We love to examine the lives and plastic or cosmetic surgieries of celebrities.Every person likes following the celebrities they love and wondering about the details about their life.

Audrey Hepburn is one of them. Looking at the naive proportion of her face, we wondered if Audrey Hepburn had undergone any plastic surgery, and Plastic Surgeon Berat Cigdem MD explained:

“Yes, Audrey Hepburn is one of the artists that I really admire. As for your question, I think she hasn’t got any surgiries. I even read one of her interviews, in 1990 Phil Donahue asked Audrey if she had ever had plastic surgery and she said no.

I can understand why this question was so curious because she looked very young despite hher advancing age.

17-Year-Old Audrey

young Andrey HepburnWhen we look at her photos from 1946, Audrey is only 17 years old and this period is when she was the most overweight.

Right after the war and during the war, Audrey states that she was obsessed with bread and chocolate and gained weight.

Also, she doesn't have her iconic eyebrows or a sleek, short haircut in these photos. Her makeup is minimal and her face is a little fuller.

Always Beautiful

Audrey Hepburn older agesAudrey looked absolutely beautiful even at her advanced age. I think she even shone in her last big role, the overlooked movie "Always," as far as I know.

If you ask what would have happened if she had done something, Audrey could have been slightly intervened in that movie, and she could have gotten help from plastic surgery.

Maybe a mini face lift could be done to tighten the neck area and eyelid surgery could be done to remove the tired eyelid drooping.

But as I said, Audrey always looked great and had a grace that is rarely seen today. She was able to tell how it was possible to stay natural and beautiful as she got older.

Audrey Hepburn's youngest son, "Luca Dotti", said that his mother Audrey Hepburn never considered as a beautiful woman. She even complained that she had a big nose and feet.

She was even dissatisfied with her weight, thinking she was too thin and had no breasts. She would look in the mirror and wonder why people consider her a beauty icon.

Contribution of Weight Control to Beauty

Audrey Hepburn love in the afternoonAs a matter of fact, weight control, that is, living at a constant weight without gaining or losing weight, is extremely important for the skin. In this way, you prevent your skin from sagging in a way.

In short, if you want to experience a good aging process in the future, you should definitely control your weight and keep it in balance.

Although Audrey is said to have complained about her weakness, I think that balanced weight control is the basis of her grace and naivety when she gets older, and her aging well.”

After doing a little research in the light of this information given by Berat Cigdem MD, we came across the diet list in an interview she gave:


  • 2 boiled eggs

  • 1 slice of wholemeal rye bread


  • Cottage cheese

  • 1 fruit (apple, wild strawberry or cranberry)

  • A little fat-free and sugar-free yogurt

  • 1 small square of unsweetened chocolate


  • 150 grams chicken breast

  • Steamed vegetables
