Britney Spears Plastic Surgery
- Date of birth: December 2, 1981
- Rumored procedures: breast augmentation, lip augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck
Since she became part of the music scene in the late 1990s, people have wondered if Britney Spears has undergone any plastic surgery procedures. Early in her career, people speculated that the pop star had breast implants placed and a rhinoplasty procedure. After she had children, some media outlets claimed that Spears had undergone tummy tuck and liposuction surgery to help get her pre-pregnancy figure back. Despite the rumors, the former princess of pop has never publicly stated that she has undergone cosmetic surgery.
By her late teens, Spears' breasts were noticeably larger than they were when she released her first single ...Baby One More Time. This fueled speculation that the star underwent breast augmentation to fill out the chest area. The rounded shape of the breasts and perky appearance did seem to be the result of implants. However, many experts believe that she has since had the implants removed or replaced with smaller models. Aside from the time that she joked about the possibility of having implants during her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live, Spears has not commented on the breast implant rumors.
Although the plastic surgery rumors associated with Spears generally focus on the size of her breasts, it appears that the first plastic surgery procedure the singer underwent was a rhinoplasty during her teen years. After comparing before and after pictures of Spears at varying stages of her career, it appears that the bridge of her nose is thinner and the tip more refined than it was during her childhood.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty is the third most commonly performed procedure on patients in their teens (behind male breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia and cosmetic ear surgery). The procedure can minimize the appearance of a prominent nose and bring it into balance with surrounding features.
Though it does not appear to be part of her regular beauty maintenance routine, photos of Spears have surfaced showing the pop star with a plumper upper lip than usual. Plastic surgeons have said that this is most likely the result of dermal fillers such as Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®.
Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
After Spears had two children, several media outlets reported that she had lipodissolve performed at a Las Vegas clinic, while others claimed that she underwent liposuction and tummy tuck surgery to remove excess fat and skin from problem areas. Others disagree, saying that if Spears had undergone mommy makeover surgery, her figure would be more taut and toned; since getting pregnant with her first son, Spears has been unable to get her pre-pregnancy figure back.
