Fashion designer Alex Perry has made no secret of the fact he relies on fillers and Botox to achieve his unique appearance.
And during an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, the 56-year-old raised eyebrows when he displayed a noticeably puffy visage.
After in-studio footage was shared to Instagram, KIIS FM listeners soon began accusing Alex of overdoing the cosmetic work and having one too many ‘facelifts’.

‘How many facelifts has he had?’ one fan asked, prompting another to comment: ‘He looks like an old sock.’
It comes after a leading plastic surgeon accused the fashionista of ‘excessive’ use of anti-wrinkle injections last year.
Dr. Randal Haworth observed that Alex looks remarkably different in before and after photos and may have taken things too far.
The Beverly Hills-based surgeon also claimed that Alex’s face now looks rather ‘crowded’ as a result of ‘too much’ filler.
‘There is no denying that Mr. Perry has undergone significant change to his countenance,’ Dr. Haworth said at the time.
‘Compared to his younger self, his face is now “crowded”, making his eyes appear smaller and closer set.
‘Most likely, a generous recipe of injected filler and more than a drizzle of Botox in and around his forehead, brows and temples contributed to this look.’

‘Additionally, his mid-face (the area between his lower eyes and upper lip) has been amply plumped to attain the “apple cheek”, a feature I feel is best left flatter in men,’ he added.
Dr. Haworth went on to say that it’s hard to determine whether Alex’s cosmetic work is permanent or temporary.
‘Hopefully the fillers used to obtain Mr. Perry’s current look are absorbable and therefore temporary,’ he said. ‘However, if fat was used (which is a permanent, living filler) his options, unfortunately, will be more limited.
Alex, whose celebrity fans include Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, told Yahoo Lifestyle in 2013 that he is not ashamed of using fillers and Botox.
‘There is nothing not real, there are a few fillers and there is a bit of Botox but that’s that. That’s normal, right?… It’s all real. It’s all real,’ he said.
In 2016, the Australia’s Next Top Model judge was criticised for his appearance by one of the show’s contestants, Kassidy Ure.
