Amid the swirling rumors enveloping his appearance, Zac Efron previously addressed the pervasive speculations regarding plastic surgery. Breaking his silence in an interview with Men’s Health, Efron clarified that changes in his face shape were a result of a jaw injury and subsequent physical therapy.

Efron catapulted into the public eye in April 2021 after a notable Earth Day special appearance alongside scientist Bill Nye. The event sparked a digital discourse termed Jaw-Gate, with discussions ranging from Botox and fillers to implants and dental surgery.


The actor recounted to Men’s Health a household accident in which he slipped and collided with a granite fountain, resulting in a broken jaw. Collaborating with a physical therapy specialist during recovery, Efron revealed that certain facial and jaw muscles had to exert more effort in response to the injury.

Notably, the masseters, responsible for chewing and situated on the side of the face from the cheekbone to the lower jaw, experienced significant growth.

The actor explained, “The masseters just grew. They just got really, really big.” This revelation injected a new layer of intrigue into the ongoing narrative, captivating fans and critics alike.


However, in an unexpected turn, an expert plastic surgeon has entered the discourse, offering insights into potential issues with Efron’s facial transformation.

In an unexpected turn, the plastic surgeon has unraveled the intricacies surrounding Efron’s facial procedure. He sheds light on potential complications during the transformation.


Renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk suggests that Efron, attributing his changed look to the aftermath of breaking his jaw in 2013, may have undergone additional procedures. Rizk speculates on jaw advancements, chin implants, or mandibular angle implants.

According to the New York Post, he stated,

“He probably took the opportunity, in addition to correcting it, to do something better. He might have had jaw advancements where they pull the chin a little bit more forward because his chin looks a little bit more prominent. Or a chin implant or mandibular angle implants [in the lower jaw] or all of the above.”

Notably, the Baywatch star’s raised eyebrows indicate a potential brow lift or Botox, contributing to a more effeminate appearance. Further, the surgeon revealed,


“He always had a straight eyebrow, and now they have more of an arch. His eyebrow is a little bit higher, which indicates he had some type of brow lift or he had Botox.”

Rizk also dispels notions of natural aging, suggesting filler injections in Efron’s cheeks for enhanced volume.
