Getting categorized as having an eternally young face is suppose to be a good thing right? For some that is quite the ironic opposite. Bob Costas is one star in the field of Sports field casting that has kept a very similar appearance throughout his career, from the 1980s to today he still has those trademark dimples and curves that make him look quite a bit younger than he should. Beyond those babyish features, though, his overall skin looks entirely too fresh and young.
What is the professional take on Bob Costas, plastic surgery or lucky genetics?
Even if the Sportscaster won’t admit to having any work done, the telltale signs of smooth, almost shiny flesh in areas of his face, the forehead in particular, point to regular use of Botox injections & facelift. There is also possibly some use of fillers, and in some cases there are likely some eyelid modifications to help counteract the natural occurrence of sagging after a certain age.
The bottom line, though, according to the professional opinions of Hollywood plastic surgeons, is that he has had subtle work done over the years. Unlike many cases of where people indulge in frequent cosmetic procedures, Bob Costas is one of those rare instances of doing it right. There is also no doubt that he has been blessed with very forgiving genetics that help slow the signs of aging and makes it easier to keep treatments to minimal levels.
How has plastic surgery affected his career?
Despite being the topic of some friendly joking among the field, his perpetual baby face status is part of his iconic career. He could of easily had some major procedures done to give him a less juvenile roundness to his features, and something that he has been slowly working towards that. Although many feel that if he had opted for major alternations, he may of found a large upset among followers and colleagues.
For someone who was born in 1952, his never ending sense of youth gives a lot of people a smile. No matter how run down, they feel, they can take a look at him and see a bit of youth that has been captured. The enthusiasm and dedication in his voice very much match the youthful face that subtle and well done cosmetic procedures have helped to preserve.
