Simon Cowell has always been open about his use of botox, and now the music mogul has admitted he went under the knife recently.

Cowell visited cosmetic surgeon Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh, known as the “Picasso of dermatology”, for a Silhouette Soft Lift costing $3,856.20 NZD.

The procedure involves sewing bioplastic-infused thread into the face and neck and tugging it to get rid of sagging skin.

Cowell, 58, told The Sun on Sunday: “There’s lots of things you can do now.

"You don’t just have to stuff your face with filler and Botox.

“It hurts like hell but it gets rid of sun damage and unplugs all the crap.

"For me now, it’s all about having clean skin.

"If you have clean skin, you look better.

"But you have to be very careful with some of this stuff.”

His decision to have a facelift comes after he admitted he has had "too much Botox" in the past.

He said before his facelift: "Hopefully I look better now - I probably did have a little too much Botox a couple of years ago, because everyone on TV has it. Now I have facials, but nothing too extravagant at the moment. I have a girl who comes here and does a great face massage - it's very relaxing. I also had a sheep placenta facial once, which was quite out there.
