Merry Christmas, [livejournal.com profile] hydeology! :D

I feel a bit silly posting in this comm since it's been pretty inactive, but I'm going for it anyway. I've seen several people mention online that they think Hyde has had a facelift recently, or that they've at least heard rumors of him having undergone such a procedure. I admit, I have been thinking that he's been looking a little funky lately, but I had attributed that to his increasingly older age and a (slight) weight gain. He was looking surprisingly fresh when VAMPS debuted last year, too. But I feel like his face looks natural, and I don't feel like he's very vain, obsessed with his looks, or concerned about how his looks will affect his career at this point.

Do you think he's had any work done? Do you think he'd be the type to maybe try to surgically preserve his looks in the future if he hasn't already?

Hehe, I actually think it's a pretty good thing when the community is quiet for a long time, given the whole rumor aspect. xD

As for looks, he looks to me like he's aging naturally. A lot of older people do facelifts in the business, and there's nothing wrong with that type of procedure in my opinion. It honestly doesn't look like he's had anything done, though. It makes the skin look tighter, and his skin doesn't look tight at all.

If it really come to it, I think he might actually be pressured to doing something like that by management and the fan expectations - I don't think it's a matter of vanity or even his personal opinion (sadly). And it's not like doing something like that is wrong anyway...

However, I'm pretty sure that he hasn't done anything yet (or at least, that's what I want to believe). He's showing his age more often, if anything. Wouldn't it be the other way if he had something done?

I think he just takes care of himself and that's why he looks young, and a bit of make up helps a lot too xD

like some grandmas

Nope, never. Impossible. NOOO!!!!

Excuse my fangirl shrill.. *serious mode*
I think it is all about the makeup. I flip through this beautician friend of mine's textbook, and saw an example of this lady with a humongous birthmark on her face... then, lo and behold! The magic of makeup cover it up without an evidence left.

Anyway.. all the creases and lines are lining up proudly on his face especially when he smiles while facelift is all about tightening facial muscles.

People will just have to accept that he is naturally dashing and live with their jealousy. MWAHAHAHAHA!!

I don't think he's had anything done, yet. His face still seems to move naturally when he smiles and talks and all that. You can see lines of laughter when he smiles, and lines on his forehead, too. So his face, at the least, doesn't look like he had a job done there, yet. And I hope he never will. Not that I consider it a wrong thing to do in general, I just... I have never seen it go WELL, I suppose. It always, always ends up looking fake.

What we can attribute his looks to, however, is geneology. According to this report I saw once, the aging process for the Asians starts approximately 10 years later than in the Western world, but catches up all the more quickly. So they'd look younger a bit longer, but catch up as far as aging looks go pretty quickly at one point. No idea if it's true, but it could be part of the reason why Hyde still looks as good as he does.

In general, though, I feel as though you are starting to see age on his face. Not in a bad way, mind you, just in a way that makes me think he hasn't done anything. Add to that the fact that they are photoshopping him more than ever... heh. Even in the BLESS PV they seem to have smoothed over his face a great deal. I actually love to see him age, and I do hope that neither his management nor his fans will ever pressure him to do anything about that. I bet if he allows himself to age naturally, it won't look at all that bad, but rather charming and endearing.

haha, the irony lies in your photoshopped icon, gakkuhai &♥ just teasing~ I love it. ;)

Double ditto inkcharm, on that last paragraph...
However, the retouching doesn't bother me. It comes with the territory, and makes those moments of uncensored natural beauty all the more cherished. ♥♥♥

I doubt he is the type to undergo this type of procedure at his own will. I feel he is more like the type that waking up 1 day, look at himself in the mirror and realize his late nights and out drinking with friends too often are taking a toil on his face, and decided to take a much more healthy life style. But I'm not saying he would never get it done, because he could be pressured into it one day. Personally I don't think he is vain with his looks, because he is always comfortable with himself to show his make-up-less face to the fans.

Sometimes I do wonder the same (despite how much I love him, there are still rare moments that I get incredibly jealous of his beauty. It is so damaging to my self esteem that a man who is so much older happens to be so much more beautiful than me T^T), but I don't think he has done it yet, because I had seen with my own eyes how he could look 10 years younger in 24 hours, which is not something botox can achieve. The true magic behind all the mystery is a good make-up artist. I always have the highest respect to 荒木尚子 san. I take my hat off to this amazing girl.

I was in Japan for the last VAMPS tour. The very first VAMPS live I attended was the second last day at Universal Studio Japan, I was a little sad to see how tired and old looking he was, I'm pretty sure he did his own make-up that day, which consisted of lining his big eyes with loads of eyeliners and pretty much nothing else... and his voice wasn't at his best. Then just the very next day, he was like a completely different person. He seriously looked 10 years younger, completely refreshed. At that time, I suspected that particular live was going to be recorded for a DVD release so he got his make-up artist in. OMG, it was an absolutely spectacular performance. He was at his best. I really hope they will release this live on DVD soon because all the fans need to see this. It was the best one out of the whole tour in Japan, in my humble opinion. On my way back to the hotel, I heard so many fellow fans exclaiming how kawaii HYDE was on that day, including a male fan to his girlfriend LOL

Nahhh, not Hyde. Braces are one thing but if he was the type to get work done he would've fixed his little eye thing/scar and such. Or, well, who knows. As long as Hyde's happy, but I don't think he would. I love his aging! He gets better as time goes on, like wine *-*

But, they're photoshopping him so much he looks like a cartoon character sometimes. Lame :(

Yes some are so faded and glowy and you know? The kind that makes him look CG. *sigh* Ah well.

I read your comment. Heh. It was funny because at Los Angeles, which was recorded, he looked a lot more tired than at San Francisco. He was probably just more well rested. :)

Mmm...like you've said, I too feel like if it was up to Hyde, he wouldn't really choose to get it for vanity/self-consciousness 's sake which is the main driving force behind so many other celebrities nowadays. He uh, actually looks his age here and there when he chooses to show it for example that studio recording of bless, his face looked very angular to me with bones showing more here and there for some reason and he looked his 40 almost 41 years. I do actually think its the make up, or the lack of smoking? Okay scratch that last one he's been smoking for a good 2 decades and still defies all the physical consequences of it.

Hyde wore alot more make up when he debuted with Vamps what with all the eyeliner and light chocolate complexion, but again there were photoshoots in which his age was made more apparent

Then there's always the damning fact that whenever he smiles, ^^", his face just breaks into all those laughing wrinkles we all know so well lol

If he were to get a facelift anytime in the future, that's really up to him hen, there isn't much else he needs to change about himself.

ooooh! Butting in very late here. IMO i don't think a man who couldn't care less about letting his bed hair, swollen hungover face, scruffy facial hair, puffy eyes and age wrinkles and all that jazz appear on recordings would bother getting a facelift, at least not now. I personally think Hyde already has good skin, and plus Japanese men are already very into and what not. I think he generally takes care of his skin. So, facelift? I think not. Collagen water or anything other face cream or placenta intakes/application? Maybe.

I'm kinda late to this post, but I wanted to comment anyway. Haha.

I don't think he's had any major cosmetic procedure like a facelift or plastic surgery, but I think he might occasionally use less noticeable things like, face creams, makeup, etc. I don't really think that he'd get any kind of cosmetic surgery done in the future. He doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to get any work done since he's been known to sometimes show up at photos shoots and concerts looking slightly ~un made up~ XD But even if he does do it, I'm sure I'd still like him as much as I do now. ;)

The solution to beautiful skin... natto x_X; I swear it.

But Hyde's tiny weight gain is due to I think I heard he FINALLY! quit smoking~ YAY. ._.; But with smoking, you tend to have less of an appetite and (I heard) Hyde ate tons O_O
