As for his transformation, the award-winning host shared what procedure he did first--and that is getting his teeth fixed.
Moreover, he admitted that it's more than just veneers.
Interestingly, the stand-up comedian went to detail the whole process.
For Jimmy Carr's transformation, he underwent a three-day teeth renovation explaining that he spent almost 12 hours in the dental chair to fix his teeth.
"I did 12 hours in the chair the first day, then 12 hours the second, it was like a three-day thing where you've got temporary things on. It's pretty full-on," he mentioned.
As for getting surgeries like facelift, he mentioned that he refuses to get this done because it would totally change his look, and that's not what he's going for.
"I think that thing of age is that people don't really see what's there, people are good at pattern recognition, that's all they do, teeth and hair.

With his line of work, he wanted to look presentable, hence getting face alteration.
He admitted that maintaining the look is the hardest, adding, "I don't think there's anything you can do plastic surgery wise, or augmentation wise, that makes you look better, you can just sort of stay the same, that's what you can hope for."
Aside from this, he is also looking after himself by exercising and getting food supplements.
