Are Gillian Anderson Plastic Surgery Rumours True?
Gillian Anderson plastic surgery rumours were the result of her amazing youthful looks on her comeback to pay FBI agent Dana Scully from the science fiction show The X Files.
This is how Gillian looked like back then, scroll all the way down for her latest Twitter Pic:
She appeared with amazingly wrinkle free facial skin, a perfectly smooth neck and overall glowing and supple appearance. Gillian Anderson definitely had those plastic surgery scouts looking. She looked nothing like the 47 years of age at all.
And her amazing appearance prompted some overly eager plastic surgery fans to put up a graphic that shows many arrows at different part of Gillian’s face:
Gillian Anderson has made a brave and successful comeback for the role she played 15 years ago. And mind you, that was back in 1993 when The X Files was one of the highest rated shows. It was seriously quite sometime ago. Her youth is an amazing feat that fans started to question if Gillian’s seemingly everlasting beauty is due to her excellent natural upkeep – or was it with the help of surgical intervention.
Some of the comments included:
‘The aliens clearly implanted a lot of Botox in Scully’s face,’ wrote one commentator on the social networking site Twitter.
‘Loving the return of X-Files, even if Scully physically can’t move her face,’ said another. ‘Is she happy, sad, nostalgic? Who knows?’
The New X Files Mini Series Had Many Plastic Surgery Fans Raving
The new mini series of the X Files was aired on Monday night and it drew instant reaction from the fans. Many of the fans were hungry for the revival of the series which proved to be so popular and intriguing at the same time.
X Files was able to blur the lines between reality and realistic imagination.
The story lines made Gillian Anderson and her co star, David Duchovny, household names of that era.
In fact, her previous appearance in the BBC One remake of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace did not solicit such a raging response from the fans. There was no awakening of Tweets or Facebook comments during the airing of the series, which ended on last Sunday.
Such is the drawing power of the X Files.

Gillian Anderson Mentioned about Plastic Surgery in 2013
In 2013, Gillian Anderson spoke of plastic surgery and it did cross her mind if she should get some procedures done. She said “ (I had a) period of time thinking ‘ Surely something can be done without having to be cut into’” . So the question is : Did Gillian really fall into the temptation of plastic surgery?
Gillian Anderson Forehead Drew some Plastic Surgery Comments
Her appearance in the X Files comeback showcased an ultra smooth and almost shiny forehead. For a lady at age 47, it is near impossible to have such a well maintained forehead. Furthermore, there almost no exercise one can do to remove the frown lines or sagging skin near the hairline.
But Gillian Anderson has done the almost impossible, having a smooth forehead at age 47.
There were also speculations that her shiny forehead was a tell tale sign that her skin has been stretched by plastic surgery procedures. The possibility of using Botox was also not ruled out by one plastic surgeon.
However, another camp suggests that the well maintained forehead could be due to the latest ultrasound treatment, which does not require invasive surgery or injections. The ironing out of wrinkles could also be done using broadband light treatment.
Did Gillian Anderson undergo eyelid surgery?
With Gillian’s beautiful eyes, there were other rumours about her having eyelid surgery. Some plastic surgeons believed that she has had surgery on her lower eyelids to remove the fat pockets around her eyes. There were also others who suggested that her brilliant eyes could be due to the clever use of makeup, resulting in deeper set eyes and more mesmerising feel.
What about Gillian Anderson’s Cheeks?
Her latest appearance also set tongues wagging over her full cheeks. As we know, sunlight causes the degeneration of skin cells and it is always important to protect oneself from the sun.
And that is what Gillian Anderson did.
She once admitted to using a scrub by Clarins and also an Estee Lauder serum. On top of that, she also uses Clinique face cream and Laura Mercier Tinted moisturiser during the day. Despite her revelation about the products she used, unbelievers say that she could not have achieved those astounding results without plastic surgery. Some suggest that it must be some chemical she underwent.
Gillian Anderson Lips and Chin
Gillian Anderson also appeared with fuller lips in her show. One make up artist, Mariman Pouranpir. says that Gillian’s “clever use” of nude lip liner and matt natural colours create the effect of more pouty and fuller lips.
Disagreeing with the above, one of the plastic surgeons says that due to a tiny “shadowing” in the middle part of the upper lip, it shows that she must have undergone a dermal filling procedure.
Further plastic surgery speculations include her chin, which retained all the contours a woman twenty years younger than her should have. However, some suggested that her nice chin could also be due to the application of a liquid highlighter on her chin.
Gillian Anderson Wrinkle Free Neck
The skin of the neck is one of the best tell tale signs of aging. Its hard to work on and there is not exercise that can stop the formation of the wrinkled neck. Thus, when Gillian Anderson appeared on the show with a flawless neck, it sent shockwaves on the internet.
A skin expert Lee Garrett, as reported in the DailyMail, .said Gillian Anderson might have undergone a cosmetic surgery to tighten the loose skin in the neck and also a chemical peel to remove the veins and wrinkles on the neck.
Gillian Anderson Reacts to the Plastic Surgery Rumors
Despite the heavy speculations, Gillian Anderson put up a strong denial over the plastic surgery allegations. Her tweet says it all, she wrote :” If it weren’t so sad, this bollocks would have made my day”
Whatever it is, we are still grateful for Gillian to make a comeback in the X Files. Though it might not run as long as the original series, we hope that it will continue to stretch sci-fi fans imaginations. There are still some signs of aging on Gillian, its not a perfect face, but Gillian has done a fantastic job to look this good at age 47. We applaud her for that.
Just for the last bit, Gillian has updated her Twitter with her latest picture. Judge for yourself if she underwent any cosmetic enhancements :
And since she has denied the plastic surgery rumours so vehemently, we can take her word for that. Meanwhile, enjoy the run of the X Files while it lasts. What do you think of Gillian Anderson plastic surgery rumours? True or False?
