    Vladimir Putin has yet again been accused of getting plastic surgery after new pictures showed his "swollen butt filler cheeks".

    The Russian despot has recently been the focus of attention due to his apparently ailing health, while others have claimed he is using body doubles. However, it has now been claimed that the 71-year-old uses plastic surgery to stay youthful-looking.

    The Sun previously reported that hard man Putin has denied undergoing any cosmetic procedures to improve his looks, but recent images of the dictator show his cheeks looking puffy.

    Attributing his cheek changes to "butt implants", one social media user asked: "What the f*** is going on?"

    Another joked: "Did he get stung by bees in both of his cheeks?"

    In April a doctor weighed in on the possible causes of why Putin’s face has become more “puffy”, claiming that in rare cases such symptoms can be a sign of a serious underlying condition.

    Dr Gareth Nye, a programme lead for Medical Science at Chester Medical School, said: “The face can appear puffy for a number of reasons ranging from the acute to the chronic with varying levels of severity.

    “The first thing to consider is that age plays a huge role in every aspect of our bodies including the face which may give an appearance of something underlying when it's just natural.

    “As we age, skin isn't as smooth and robust as it is in youth meaning it sags and gets loose allowing the natural fat deposits to move lower than previously. In combination with the changes in ears and nose with age, most faces end up with a puffer appearance in the lower half around the chin and neck.”

    And even as far back as September 2018, experts were saying Putin probably went under the knife. According to a plastic surgery expert from MYA Cosmetic Surgery, a London based specialist, the Russian leader has had procedures that could have cost him up to £8,000 a pop.

    Amy Scott, from the firm, said she believes Putin has undergone "very subtle cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedure" to make him look younger.
