(ONTD Original) Plastic Fantastic: Pop Girls Who Got A Little Work Done


🔪

No, your faves are not doing lip squats to get plumper lips, or drinking dieters tea for a sunken cheek look. They booked an appointment at a cosmetic surgery facility *ahem Epione* to mess with their face. I've seen so many fans wanting to deny "plastic surgery" as if there aren't non-surgical procedures that are common, and most of this list includes injectable fillers.

👃

If you haven't noticed earlier this week I've been #displaying #questionable photos of certain artists and sparked the curiosity of what they've done, recognizing something looks 'off' but cannot point it out. That's where you come in to help crack down the code in our #discussion.

💉

OP's Note: This post is not to shame or degrade anyone who chooses to get plastic/cosmetic surgery. *blah beauty is relative, do what makes you happy, cultures always altered appearances for beauty, etc. blah*

👄

Most of this is all inferences I took from scouring insights across cosmetic procedural forums, so obviously we're not gonna have the actual tea. Some celebs might want to shy away from admitting to altering their appearance and it's totally their bidnezz, so we'll note if any of them addressed their changes. With that said for legal reasons, our pop girls *ALLEGEDLY* did the following -


6. Lana Del Rey


Before/Then:




After/Now:




📝 Speculative Report:
- Procedures circa 2011
- Lip injections: we all probably took notice since the viral "Video Games" when she was doing her pouty singing. They've settled down through the years.
- Rhinoplasty: her side profiles show a more defined curve at the bridge
- Fillers (face): weight has been fluctuating throughout the years so it might not be as prominent, but other folks here have pointed out she's been looking smoother and fuller in parts of her face.

💬 Addressed?
Sort of. Lana's words -


- Bonus: Comments from peers

OP's note: A mess to admit this but I was in the LM.com chat when Gaga said this. This isn't my tweet, but I pointed out the similarities when Gaga was having her lip injection spree circa 2012 and she responded to the comment. She also directly responded to other minor things from me in those chats (I had the screen grabs in my now broken decade old computer) lmao.

5. Ariana Grande


Before/Then:




After/Now:




📝 Speculative Report:
- Procedures circa 2012
- Surgical brow lift: No she ain't surprised or bewildered, she began to have that perpetual look in 2012. Apparently brow lifts are popular in South Korea.
- Rhinoplasty: finer tip.
- Occasional fillers/lip injections: Grande has been open and proud of being vegan since 2014 so her weight shifted during her transformation into a pop singer, but in certain instances she has the appearance of fillers even though she's still young. Fans insist it's only lip liner that's giving the pouty looks, but they need to remember injections settle in and out.

As ONTD member margot6 said on her before and after pics: "they don't even look like cousins."

💬 Addressed?

Addressed and made it sound like it was all just hoopla, but no where in her words did she deny anything.

4. Britney Spears


Before/Then:




After/Now:




📝 Speculative Report:
- Procedures circa 2013
- Rhinoplasty: thinner bridge+tip, prominent since her cover on Women's Health.
- Fillers/lip injections: around the mouth area. Assuming to smooth out laughing wrinkles, so it ended up giving the 'joker' smile with the curves on her top borders.

💬 Addressed?
Says she had lip injections.

3. Kesha


Before/Then:




After/Now:




📝 Speculative Report:
- Procedures circa 2015.
- Lip injections: but they've settled since
- Fillers

💬 Addressed?
N/A

2. Lady Gaga


Before/Then:




After/Now:




📝 Speculative Report:
- Procedures: lip injections around 2012, real differences in 2015
- Face lift: cheek and chin (see very sharp quarter profile). She took note of drag queens and played around with face tape which seemed like she used often, until she consistently looked liked it all the time, thus a face lift.
- Lip injections
- Fillers

Notes: People have been speculating about a nose job SINCE she debuted in 2008 all the way through BTW era. I believe she didn't touch her nose at all, but those bangs she used to sport made her large nose appear more protruding.

💬 Addressed?
Gaga addressed her lip filler phase in 2013 and that a photographer wanted her to stop.

1. Christina Aguilera


Before/Then:




After/Now:





📝 Speculative Report:
- Procedures circa 2016/2017
- Lip injections: we were stunned and shocked by the now deleted IG picture (top left in the after photos). Now they're an asymmetrical mess (bottom in the after photos).
- Fillers: we started to see fillers in 2016 and now they're more noticeable, especially in movement.
- Had a boob job circa 2006 but likely removed them since

Notes: Legend X fluctuates her weight a LOT through the years and gossip sites always speculated she had lip+nose jobs throughout, but those changes we likely weight-related.

💬 Addressed?
N/A, just like that damn album



At the end of the day you just have to do you boo, and let others do them. Sometimes these operations can be a snatch, others got us thinking

But from my understanding, none of us are celebs who have to always make public appearances, be close-up ready, doing photoshoots, and be criticized all the time. What IS moderation?
