It was reported on Saturday that Mexico's number one drug lord, Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman, was captured and as the first pictures of him surfaced online, people were curious to see whether he looked the same as in 2001 when he escaped from prison.

For many years it had been speculated that Guzman underwent plastic surgery procedures to hide from authorities. After 13 years in the manhunt, having a cartel flooded with marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other illegal drugs, authoritiescaptured Guzman on Saturday morning when he was at the Miramar Hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico, a popular place for tourists on the Pacific coast. Guzman was transferred to Mexico City Saturday morning where DNA and dental records are being used to confirm that the man is indeed the drug lord.

"We've been actively tracking him for five weeks," a US security official said. "Because of that pressure, he fled in the last couple of days to Mazatlan. He had a small contingent with him."

The Telegraph posted a photo of the suspect as he was being taken away by marines on Saturday. The picture resembles the same facial features seen in photos from "Chapo" from several years ago but has aged. His cheeks are bigger and his lips appear smaller. There are several other images from the past that show it is unlekily that he had plastic surgery.

There is a photo on Motherboard that shows a picture from a year ago of a man that looks like the drug lord. He strikes a similar resemblance to the photo in The Telegraph with the same facial features and mustache.

Rumors that Guzman had used plastic surgery to change his appearance spread over the web as it is known that several Mexican drug loards in the past have used such procedures to change their facial features, according to Forbes.

Sinaloa singer Omar Meza talked about what other people tend to think of Guzman.

"A lot of people here see Guzman as a success story because he is a poor guy who has been able to beat the system and become richer than you could ever imagine," Meza said. "They refer to him as a valiente (a brave one)."
