Zac Efron is a popular actor and entertainment professional who first came to the world’s attention thanks to his role in the High School Musical, which launched him to fame and led to later roles in movies such as Neighbours and Dirty Grandpa.

It’s important for stars such as Efron to look their best, considering their constant place in the spotlight, and therefore it should come as no surprise when they decide to seek aesthetic improvement through cosmetic surgery and other treatments. Zac Efron has not fessed up to anything, but his subtly evolving looks over the years have led many to believe that he has had cosmetic surgery. Most agree that he always looked good but some claim that the enhancements he has had have made him all the more appealing.

Let’s take a look at the rumors and discuss how much truth there is to them.

 The Rumors

Most of the rumors surrounding Zac Efron’s looks focus on the appearance of his nose. Nose jobs (rhinoplasty) are popular among celebrities and others seeking a smaller or straighter nasal appearance. Many of those speculating about Efron’s nose claim that the tip of his nose was rounder and say that his nasal bridge was broader. Even experts have chimed in claiming that the cartilages in the tip of his nose look smaller now, and his nasal bones narrower.

Another source of speculation regarding Efron’s looks involves the shape of his chin and jawline. Those doing the gossiping claim that he may have had a chin reshaping procedure with placement of jaw implants.

Most would agree that Efron’s jaw does appear sharper than it used to, but this is different from believing that he underwent a complex procedure to achieve a squarer jawline. Though photos of Efron through the years do show that his jaw has become more defined and squarer, he does not appear to have any scars. It’s also important to remember that men’s jawlines naturally become more square and defined as they progress from boyhood to manhood. If Efron’s jaw appears to be more round in older pictures, it is probably because he still had some “baby fat.”

 What Is Dr. Sam Rizk’s Opinion?

It’s true that many celebrities undergo cosmetic surgery to keep themselves looking tip top. In fact, Dr. Rizk himself has treated some of them. However, Dr. Rizk doesn’t like to speculate about what procedures a particular celebrity has or hasn’t had, because it’s very difficult to know for certain without having been there. So has Zac Efron had plastic surgery? Since it’s all speculation, your guess is as good as his.

More Men Having Plastic Surgery

While it’s unclear whether Zac Efron has undergone any cosmetic enhancement procedures, it is true that more and more men are opting for plastic surgery these days, particularly male celebrities. Three of the most popular cosmetic surgeries among men are rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty and facelift.

Men made up more than 20 percent of all rhinoplasty surgeries in 2015, according to statistics from one of the major plastic surgery organizations. Rhinoplasty enhances the appearance of the nose by improving its proportions in conjunction with other facial features, and therefore creating a more harmonious appearance. Rhinoplasty can also improve breathing.

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery is also very popular among men. The eyelids naturally become droopy or saggy as a result of the aging process. Luckily, eyelid surgery is an effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of the area around the eyes. The procedure can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids to improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin.

Facelift, too, is becoming very popular with men. This procedure improves the appearance of the face and neck by reducing or eliminating wrinkles and saggy skin.

Last but not least, a whole host of minimally invasive facial cosmetic treatments have become very attractive to men in recent years, including injectables like Botox and Juvederm; skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing and chemical peels; and a number of other cosmetic procedures, from tattoo removal to non-surgical fat-reducing treatments.
