Another day in Hollywood, another plastic surgery. Most stars have had at least one nip or tuck here and there at some point in their careers. Having enlarged photos of their faces plastered on posters and billboards all around the world has to leave celebrities nit-picking every single little detail of their appearances. Sometimes, you just can’t blame them. Too many stars emerge with new work done, only to have the media buzzing about their botched boob or nose jobs. You’d think that with the mountains of cash they sit upon, these celebrities would be able to find a decent plastic surgeon.
Lucky for some, there are quite a few stars whose minor adjustments compliment their natural looks, leaving us doubting that they even had any work done at all.
Through all of the botched procedures we’ve seen time and time again, (we’re looking at you, Tori Spelling…) there have also been plenty of attractive, flattering adjustments by celebrities who just needed a fine chisel to make minor improvements to their appearances.
13. Blake Lively
Blake Lively truly is a natural beauty. By looking at a few “before” photos on their own, it would be easy to pass over her wider, slightly bulbous nose. However, once you put it next to more recent photos, you can clearly see that her slight adjustment noticeably slimmed and elongated her face. The modification is subtle, and gave her girl-next-door baby face a more slender, grown up look. There is no denying that there has been work done, but we can certainly say that the procedure was beneficial to her appearance, and I’m sure her career. Some have also speculated that she had some work done on her hooded eyelids. Whatever procedures she has had done have been sweet and subtle, and I know we all hope that it stays that way.
12. Nikki Bella
How could I possibly compile a list of plastic surgeries, and not put a WWE Diva on it? While many Divas have spent their fair share of time under the knife, Nikki Bella’s final product seems to be the most flattering, and more natural looking than the others. There have been complaints that her larger breasts, next to her twin sister Brie’s natural bust, throw off the twin dynamic. However, there’s no doubting that Nikki’s breast augmentation is certainly attractive, and flatters her shape. Many stars feel that “bigger is better” when it comes to having their boobs done. However, sometimes it is more like a little bit bigger, but still proportionate to your body, is better. Well, to each their own, it is impossible to please everyone. We love her look, as long as Nikki does not encounter a situation like Eva Marie’s leaking breast implant on a recent episode of Total Divas.
11. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson seems to have gone from a flat-chested beauty to a full-bosomed bombshell overnight. Her new, yet proportionate, augmentation gives her a more womanly figure without overdoing it. At the age of thirty-six, the mother of two certainly doesn’t need a couple of DDs, but you can’t blame her for wanting a more busty appearance. In addition, it is speculated that Kate also gets some medical assistance maintaining her youthful face. Possible lip fillers and a couple of occasional Botox injections to fight wrinkles may be the crutch she needs to get by in Hollywood these days. However, this is not confirmed. We’d all like to think that it is perfectly possible to age as gracefully as some of these stars seem to have. However, we could just be giving ourselves false hope.
10. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson has never exactly been open and honest about her appearance, but judging by quite a few photographs, we can see that there are some very noticeable changes. We’ll start with the obvious – a boob job. It appears that Johansson has actually had two procedures done on her breasts: one to enlarge them, and another one more recently to reduce them down to a more average, manageable size. Was it becoming a mother that changed the actress’s outlook on her busty figure? It is hard to say. There are also noticeable changes in the size and shape of her nose. Early in her career, Johansson had a larger, more rounded nose. Nowadays it seems to be more petite and slender. Speculations also swirl around lip injections and cheek fillers being on the list of adjustments she’s had over the years. All we know for sure is that whatever she’s doing, she’s doing it right.
9. Ashlee Simpson
Ashlee Simpson is just another celebrity with a fantastic plastic surgery outcome who has never come straight out and admitted that she has gone under the knife. Looking at photos from early in Ashlee’s career in the early 2000s, compared to today, there is really no denying it. Sorry, Ash. Her face has gone through an obvious transition, a great one, at that. She has come a long way from the pretty teen we first knew as Jessica Simpson’s baby sister. Now a mother of two, it has been widely rumored that in addition to an obvious rhinoplasty, Simpson has also undergone some sort of procedure on her chin as well. All I know is that whatever she has had done, it transformed her face in the best way, and she should be proud of the outcome.
8. Kelly Rowland
Open about her breast augmentation, Kelly Rowland explained that she waited 10 years to make the final decision to go through with the surgery in 2007. Although, it is hard to see how she could ever deny having work done. Rowland was known for her more flat-chested figure, and she admitted how much it always bothered her. Especially being in the public eye, with paparazzi following your every move (and every beach vacation), it’s hard to blame her for wanting to plump up her figure just a bit. Kelly went with a very natural, proportionate size, and she looks fantastic.
7. Kim Kardashian
You can love her or hate her, but there is no denying that Kim Kardashian has had some fantastic work done. I’m sure the list of procedures is much longer than we can imagine, but it has certainly made drastic changes to her entire appearance. Her face is particularly different. The work she’s had done has given her a softened, more feminine face, and like it or not, she seems to be the epitome of Hollywood perfection. There is no denying her beauty, and hats off to the doctors responsible for the transformation.
6. Jennifer Aniston
It took years of rumors and speculation, but Jennifer Aniston finally came clean about having some assistance maintaining a youthful face. It is believed that Aniston has actually had two nose jobs; one to repair a deviated septum, and one to fix the outcome of the first procedure. The slow and subtle changes over time have always made it difficult to pinpoint just how much work this timeless beauty has had done. Aside from her new nose, Aniston admitted to being “obsessed” with laser therapy to maintain her notoriously youthful face. An apparently terrifying process, the laser gets rid of skin cells and essentially causes a layer of your face to shed, revealing new, youthful skin beneath it. Aniston certainly knows how to keep us guessing, but we’re all glad that she was able to open up about some of the secrets behind her everlasting beauty.
5. Lady Gaga
With all of the outrageous costumes, wigs, and makeup Lady Gaga wears, it is always so hard to determine exactly what she looks like Au Naturel. Her on stage appearances make such a drastic change, that once she is stripped of it all, we can’t help but wonder if it was the stage makeup, or surgery, that has given her such a different look. Gaga seems to be straying a bit from her original kooky get ups and behavior, so is it just her natural looks we are now seeing? Or is there more to it? The most obvious difference is her nose. Her Italian descent is most likely to thank for her long, protruding nose. However lately, we are seeing a more slender, and overall smaller nose on her. The change does not seem to be drastic, and the nose we are now seeing seems to suit her. Reports have been circulating that she’s had more work done than we think, including a face lift and lip fillers. It is refreshing to see this calmer side of Lady Gaga, and her new and improved appearance compliments her new demeanor.
4. Britney Spears
First of all, I must applaud Britney Spears for looking as good as she does after what she has been through. After the infamous meltdown of 2007, I don’t think any of us were prepared to see Britney recover. To our surprise, the former teen pop star has given us a run for our money, emerging just as radiant and beautiful as ever. While age may be a factor in her slimmer face, we can’t help but notice the slimmer nose, as well. With just the right nips and tucks in all the right places, her flawless nose job gives her a more mature look. It is nice to see her with a youthful and healthy face, as well as a full head of hair these days. Her surgeons have done her well.
3. Halle Berry
The ever-envied Halle Berry. Notorious for being one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, it is hard to believe that this beauty is in her 50s now. Good genes certainly play a roll, but we can never help but wonder what kind of help she is getting from doctors. The only real speculation on Halle Berry has always been her nose. Early in her career, Halle had a slightly larger nose, as opposed to the more slender one she sports today. All I want to know is where is she hiding the fountain of youth that she seems to sip from every morning? No amount of plastic surgery can give you such a perfectly ageless face.
2. Tyra Banks
One of the most notorious supermodels of our time, Tyra Banks seems to have been another victim of a larger nose in her youth. The America’s Next Top Model host has always had a radiant glow about her, (Hello? SUPERMODEL) and has always been a natural beauty. However, Hollywood seems to get the best of even the most beautiful of stars. The subtle change in Tyra’s face slims and matures her looks just enough, without hardening her features or giving her the infamous “plastic” look. She seems to be yet another star who we aren’t sure will ever age.
1. Dianna Agron
Dianna Agron openly admits that she underwent two nose procedures due to a broken nose. It is always hard to believe celebrity stories on why they got their plastic surgeries. The deviated septum excuse has been used time and time again, and is only getting harder to believe. Dianna’s TWICE broken nose is yet another story that may or may not be the whole truth. After originally having a procedure done to repair a broken nose in high school, we can’t help but wonder if this beauty just wasn’t happy with the outcome of her first surgery. Just like Jennifer Aniston, maybe the second time was a charm when it came to the overall appearance of her nose job. Or, maybe she really did break her nose… twice. Whatever the reason is, both noses suit her well. The Glee star is a knockout, thanks to the more natural looking outcome of both surgeries. You’d never guess she had anything done!
