Today, we’ll take a look at Tom Cruise’s facial features and discuss the possibility of any plastic surgeries he may have undergone. We’ll reveal the costs at the end. In 1981, at the age of 19, Tom had a low hairline with no signs of recession. His eyebrows were strong and linear, which is typical for men. He had a smooth transition from his lower eyelid to his cheek, highlighting his prominent cheekbones. Tom had a characteristic nose with a bulbous tip and bridge asymmetry. His lips were well-defined, and he had a strong chin, jawline, and neck angle.

In 1983, at 21 years old, Tom displayed some upper eyelid hooding but still maintained a youthful appearance. It was noticeable that Tom’s face had slight asymmetry, with the right side being slightly bigger in all dimensions. His right eyebrow sat higher, the right side of his nose was positioned higher, and even the muscles on the right side of his face pulled stronger than the left. This asymmetry is common in everyone to some degree.

In 1985, at 23 years old, Tom’s jawline was highlighted by shadowing, emphasizing its defined and masculine features. His philtrum, the distance between the base of the nose and the border of the upper lip, was relatively short, and his upper teeth were visible when his mouth was gently open.

In 1987, at 25 years old, Tom’s masseter muscle, located in the jaw, provided definition to his strong gonial angle. This muscle can be the target of treatments like Botox for conditions like TMJ or for slimming the face.

By 1989, at 27 years old, Tom still maintained a strong hairline, but slight infraorbital hollowing appeared under his lower eyelid. Additionally, his full smile showed some gum display, which made him a poor candidate for a lip lift procedure.

In 1990, at 28 years old, Tom Cruise’s nose was seen as a defining feature that worked well for his appearance, despite not fitting the textbook ideal. This highlights the fact that you don’t need a perfect nose to be successful.

In 1991, at 29 years old, Nicole Kidman had entered Tom’s life. From a distance, Tom’s hair and eyebrows, as well as his jaw structure, were easily distinguishable features.

From 1992 to 1997, there didn’t appear to be any major changes in Tom Cruise’s facial features.

In 1997, at 35 years old, some early signs of aging became apparent, such as forehead wrinkles and more pronounced crow’s feet. The medial cheek also appeared more prominent, raising speculation about potential cheek implants to improve infraorbital hollowing and cheekbone structure.

By 2000, at 38 years old, Tom’s appearance remained relatively consistent. However, his central hairline started to show signs of thinning, potentially due to the natural pattern of hair growth.

At 41 years old in 2003, Tom’s lip appeared fuller than before, leading to speculation of lip fillers. There were also possible signs of cheek fillers, as the cheeks appeared more filled in both the medial and lateral aspects.

From 2004 to 2009, at ages 42 to 47, no major changes were observed in Tom Cruise’s features.

At 47, in 2009, signs of potential tear trough filler were noticed settling under Tom’s right lower eyelid.

By 2010, at 48, the lateral brows showed signs of descending more than the central brow, a common aging characteristic.

From 2011 to 2014, at ages 49 to 52, there were no significant changes in Tom’s facial features.

By 2017, at 55 years old, Tom Cruise showed signs of hair thinning in the central partition and developing static wrinkles, commonly known as ridids, on his forehead, glabella, and crow’s feet. Some pseudo herniation of fat under the lower eyelids raised suspicion of a lower blepharoplasty procedure.

From 2018 to 2021, at ages 56 to 59, there were no notable changes except for the appearance of fuller cheeks, potentially a result of weight changes, fillers, or other treatments.

At 60 in 2022, there appeared to be less swelling or edema in Tom’s face, indicating things have started to normalize.

The total estimated cost of all these procedures would reach $245,000.
