Jeff Bezos’s dramatically plumped-up lips and super-smooth, tight cheeks cheeks spark rumors he had cosmetic surgery before blasting into orbit on Amazon’s Blue Origin rocket.
The wealthiest person in the world appeared different – mostly puffier – in recent photos and video taken before and after his $5.5billion joyride to space earlier this month.
It’s unknown if Bezos, 57, has undergone any cosmetic surgery. He hasn’t said anything publicly, and there’s been no official statements from Amazon or his media relations team.
Nevertheless, it’s caught the interest of some, including Dr. Corey L. Hartman, a dermatologist in Birmingham, Alabama and social media personality, who told the Daily Beast, ‘How can you not be obsessed [with how Bezos looks]? It’s such a drastic change.’
‘He’s an easy target,’ Dr. Hartman told the Daily Beast. ‘Clearly he does not care because to me it looks like to me that he went and got his very obvious filler and injectables done right before he burst into the spotlight with this trip into space.’

Dr. Corey Hartman’s Instagram post about Bezos
Hartman posted on Instagram last week a photo of Bezos and said, ‘We see you, Jeff. Next time get the filler a month earlier so that the swelling has time to die down. Keeps people (like me) out of your business.’
Hartman did stress to Daily Beast that he doesn’t want to stigmatize cosmetic surgery, especially among men.
‘More men who are into this should go for it,’ he said. ‘So, good for Bezos for stepping out and not being afraid to go for it.’
Getting cosmetic surgery ranks near the bottom of seriousness of the Bezos bashings, which include more serious accusations of not paying taxes, union-busting and hoarding his wealth without giving to charity, among a laundry list of other criticism.
But people do have an infatuation with his looks, as evidence by a July 14 YouTube video claiming Bezos is a reptilian, which was posted Gina Maria Colvin Hill and titled ‘I’m not sure if he is human!’
‘That’s an alien in his neck,’ she says in the video. ‘Look at that two eyes in his neck. This Jeff Bezos has got an alien in his neck.’
It’s been viewed thousands of times on Facebook and was the subject of a USA Today ‘fact check’ on July 22.
The publication concluded the allegations were ‘false.’
‘Based on our research, we rate FALSE the claim that there is an alien’s face in Bezos’ neck, proving he’s not human. The video used as evidence shows Bezos’ neck wrinkles move as he talks. There is no evidence that Bezos is a reptile or alien – or that it is scientifically possible for another species to mask themselves as human. This claim draws on several unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.’
