Martin Short is believed to have had plastic surgery in an order to prevent the aging signs. Mainly, he is suspected of having Botox and a facelift. Martin Short has not made serious confessions about having plastic surgery though he has sung a song about wanting to get the procedures.

Another thing he is on the receiving end of is plastic surgery speculation. Many people suspect he has had Botox and a facelift. He has not admitted it seriously. So, the speculation might be untrue. Either way, let's take the time to learn more about Martin Short's plastic surgery!
Martin Short's Plastic Surgery: He's Made a Song About Wanting It and He's Made a Confession That He Had Not Had Any and Was not Going to Have Any!
Martin Short is suspected of having had plastic surgery to deal with the signs of aging as in to remove those. He is thought to have had Botox and a facelift. Some people also believe that he has had a nose job. This one could have been done for aesthetic purposes.
Martin Short is in his 70s now but he does not look any different than he did in his 50s. 20 years is a lot to not go through any changes, not develop any lines and wrinkles other than the ones you already have, and like not sag down. But it looks like Short has managed to escape every aging sign from taking over his face in these two decades. So, that can't be natural, right? He had to have taken the aid of plastic surgery.
He has definitely had Botox. Yeah, I know his forehead is not super creepy and slippery smooth and it does not look waxy. But that does not mean he has not had Botox. That just means that he has not had too much of it and that he hasn't gone overboard. He got the anti-wrinkle injection with just the right dose to just make those lines disappear and nothing more. It's not technically plastic surgery but it still counts as it's not natural.
Martin Short also looks more natural because he has crow's feet around his eyes and a few laugh lines on his cheeks. The comedian must have gone to the greatest expert in plastic surgery because people often go overboard with everything and end up making everything go botched whereas we can't even tell if he has gone under the knife or injections because he looks so natural. Yet, people usually don't look that young in their 70s.
The 72-year-old actor also must have gone under a facelift as well. Now, I know it does not look like he has had one because he does not look all snatched up with tight and stretched skin as a facelift is supposed to make you look. But a lot of people believe he had plastic surgery done to uplift his cheeks or rather say, keep it where it exactly is. Maybe instead of going for the defensive and pulling his cheeks up before aging would pull them down, he just didn't let nature make his skin sag and droop.
Because it certainly does not look like Martin Short has super elevated cheeks to explain a facelift but it also is not normal for people his age to have cheeks that don't sag or droop down. There's absolutely no way the Saturday Night Live alum would still look like that in his 70s no less if he had not had some kind of plastic surgery done.
He is also said to have had a nose job done. Apparently, he had an extremely thick nose before so, he got it slimmed and narrowed. This one might be just a baseless rumor. Because his nose does not look very different from before. He always had a bit bigger nose. It hasn't changed now. If he had plastic surgery done on the nose, it was very subtle.
However, we have no unambiguous words from Martin Short himself about plastic surgery. He once sang about it and how he wanted to have it to look young and handsome on David Letterman's show. 'I'll take a squirt of Botox, left and right,' he had said. Was it just humor or a revelation? With him, it should be easy to tell it's the former one. The whole song was just to get laughs and not a serious confession.
In 2011, on The Rosie Show, he had given negative words about plastic surgery saying he thought that the procedures 'wouldn't work.' And so, he never had any. Since then, maybe he's changed his mind about that one.
