In an effort to reduce his wrinkles, Gordan Ramsay admits he has had surgery on his chin.

"Simon Cowell suggested that, now I'm a success in America, I should do something. So I had a filler put under the deep crevices," he tells new issue of British weekly Radio Times. "It hurt."

He spent around $650 on an off-the-shelf filler like Restylane, which can be injected underneath crevices to plump them up.

He will apparently need to get the procedure a couple of times a year to keep up the smooth-chin look.

According to the New York Post, his decision to go under the knife comes a year after his publicist laughed off reports that the tough-talking chef had any work done. "Gordon would be the first person to take the piss out of anyone that has had surgery," the rep said at the time.

But Ramsay is now changing his tune.

"My mother said they were smile lines," he tells Radio Times. "I could deal with that at 21, but not at 42."
