A popular Beverly Hills plastic surgeon has claimed President Joe Biden has had a slew of cosmetic tweaks, including a face and brow lift.
Board-certified surgeon Dr Gary Motykie alleged on his TikTok that the president has spent the equivalent of $100,000 throughout his political career to tighten and lift the skin on his face using what Dr Motykie has called ‘outdated techniques’.
Some of the tweaks Dr Motykie claims Mr Biden has received include a face and brow lift, eyelid surgery to reduce bags, Botox, and fillers.
Dr Motykie said: ‘It left him with pixie ears and unnatural forehead lines. His hairline has also been restored but the transplanted hair doesn’t appear as natural as it would if it had been done with modern technique.’
Rumors have swirled in DC for years that Biden may have had some facial tweaks but the veteran politician has never confirmed it.
Dr Gary Motykie, a plastic surgeon practicing for 15 years, believes Mr Biden had a face and brow lift to tighten his skin and appear younger. He also speculated the president has had fillers and Botox injected into his face
Former Vice President Joe Biden is thought to have had cosmetic procedures done, including hair plugs as far back as his first entre into federal politics in 1973

The surgeon, who has never met or treated Mr Biden, said if the president had undergone these procedures, he would have spent about six figures in today’s rates of facial rejuvenation.
Dr Motykie has nearly 200,000 followers on Instagram and 61,000 on TikTok, giving him considerable reach.
The president is not the first public figure he has weighed in on. The surgeon has speculated on many celebrities’ alleged cosmetic tweaks, including that reggaeton star Bad Bunny had his jaw surgically enhanced, musician Adam Levine and actor Donald Glover had ‘secret’ hair transplants, and actress Emily Blunt either had fillers or fat grafting done to make her face appear fuller and more heart-shaped.
And in President Biden’s case, Dr Motykie said: ‘I think he’s definitely had some plastic surgery.’
‘And I don’t think it’s necessarily recent plastic surgery, I think he’s had procedures throughout the years.
‘We can see that even 30 to 40 years ago, his hair was thinning quite dramatically and then we see some signs that he underwent a hair transplant procedure and probably one of the older techniques because you can see some of the unnaturalness to the hairline.’
Dr Motykie went on to speculate about a possible brow lift, drawing comparisons between recent pictures of the president’s face and those of actor Burt Reynolds and musician Kenny Rodgers who are believed to have undergone these procedures.
The doctor said: ‘He has that same look to the upper brow and upper eyes where there’s an unnatural appearance to the lines. If we look at his brow lines on the side normally they would come like this and come down slightly but on him we see they’re turned up and going this way’, and drew an invisible line with his finger from the corner of his eye up past his temple.
Dr Motykie then highlighted a black and white photo of a young Biden taken between 30 to 50 years ago next to a recent photo, both close-ups of his left cheek to show taut, smooth skin from the corner of his mouth to his ear ‘where it looks like at some point he had a facelift.’
He added that throughout the years, Mr Biden has ‘probably done touch-ups with Botox and fillers, but overall I think he’s had a significant amount of plastic surgery throughout his career’.
Dr Motykie is far from the only person to speculate that Mr Biden has gone under the knife.
Last month, Republican Congressman Greg Murphy from North Carolina said Mr Biden had undergone ‘so much plastic surgery’ and ‘so much filler’.
Four years ago, several plastic surgeons insisted the president spruced himself up with cosmetic procedures before launching his 2020 presidential campaign.
They cited large vertical scars beginning at the top of the outside of his ear canal to about half an inch below the lobe on both sides of his face, as well as separate horizontal scars stretching from behind his ear to his upper neck.
A well-performed face lift will typically lead to virtually invisible scarring behind the ear. And in the case of a successful brow lift, there may be small incisions above the brow that leave nearly non-detectable thin white scars.
Some social media users agreed with Dr Motykie’s speculations, with one saying ‘Makes sense, he’s aged very well and looks good! I’d be curious about Hillary Clinton (who has also aged well) and Trump!’
Another wrote: ‘Showing my husband this in a desperate attempt to convince him that plastic surgery CAN make people look a lot different, and that Joe Biden has NOT been replaced by an animatronic body double’.
