Over the past year, there has been much speculation surrounding Zac Efron’s changing looks online, with the High School Musical star addressing the rumors in September.

The 34-year-old actor recently revealed he underwent corrective surgery following a chin injury that had led to a swollen face – photos of his new appearance went viral last year.

Now, Efron spoke about the accident in the cover story for Men’s Health’s Oct. 2022 issue. Efron had been running through his house in socks, slipped on the wet floor, and smacked his chin against the granite corner of a fountain. Zac recalled that when he regained consciousness, his chin bone was hanging off his face. He underwent surgery, and things seemed okay until April 2021, when he appeared in a video with Bill Nye to promote an Earth Day special.

The actor was all smiles at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival – a week after responding to rumors he had undergone plastic surgery on his face.

Since making his red carpet return, rumors have been rife about Efron’s surgery transformation as some fans of the actor have called him ‘unrecognisable’ after he unveiled his new face.

Watch the short clip below:

After the injury, Efron said that the muscles on the inside of his face grew in order to “compensate” for the injury.

“The masseters just grew. They got really, really big,” he told Men’s Health magazine.

Although Efron was the center of plastic surgery rumors in the spring of 2021, he has now come forward to reveal that his new appearance was the result of a terrible accident at home that left his face transfigured. His interview about the injury will be printed in the October 2022 issue of Men’s Health magazine.

Efron’s mom, Starla Baskett, was the one to clue her son into the plastic surgery speculation, as he chooses to remain off social media.

The “17 Again” star did not appear fazed, telling Men’s Health, “If I valued what other people thought of me to the extent that they may think I do, I definitely wouldn’t be able to do this work.”

Fans began to speculate that Efron went under the knife after he made an appearance in April 2021 for Earth Day! The Musical. In a clip on Twitter, Efron spoke about how scientist Bill Nye was a “genius” after he learned that Nye and Justin Bieber were working on the Earth Day musical together.

In a TikTok video from April 2021, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn suggested that it looked like Efron underwent dental surgery, not plastic surgery.

“Everyone is talking about Zac Efron and how strange he looks. Has he had surgery to reshape his jawline, Botox, or fillers? I don’t think so. I actually think he has had dental surgery, not plastic surgery.”
