Joan has had surgery says top doctor

London: Joan Collins who claims never to have had cosmetic surgery has gone under the knife, according to a top UK surgeon.

The 72-year-old actress says her secret age-defying weapon is make-up. She recently told US TV: “The most glamorous thing you can do is use lipstick.”

However, Alex Karidis, a London based plastic surgeon, claims he saw evidence of cosmetic surgery when he met Joan 18 months ago.

He said: “I clearly saw the scars behind her ears indicating a facelift. I saw that she had also had her eyes lifted. I would say she has had this done in the last five years.”

The glamorous actress – who has revealed her top tips for staying young in her new book ‘The Art Of Living Well’ – has previously made her position on surgery abundantly clear, and recently described Botox as “poison”.

She said: “Everyone should do what they want. If they want lips like a trout let them. Plastic surgery is the plain women’s revenge
