Celebrity Plastic Surgery: Did They or Didn't They

Celebrity Plastic Surgery: Did They or Didn't They

Every now and then a celebrity comes out of the plastic surgery closet and admits what we all already know—that they've had just a tiny bit of work done. But, more times than not, we're left to guess whether or not Hollywood's most well-known faces have had a little help from the pros. We checked in with New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Levine* to get her professional opinion on whether or not some of today's most talked about celebs may be keeping some surgery secrets of their own.

*Dr. Levine has not worked with any of the stars mentioned.

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey was looking a tad thin in the hairline department, but soon after he was back to a lush set of locks. What gives?

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Likely

What Dr. Levine says: "Matt looks like he has temporal hair loss; the hairline is starting to recede at the side parts of his forehead. This is clearly not the case in the 'after' photo, so he certainly could have had some hair plugs as well as extensions."

Nicole Kidman

Nicole has come a long way from the frizzy-haired girl we met in the '80s. Though Mrs. Keith Urban recently told Marie Claire that she is all natural, using only sunscreen and moisturizer on her face, that doesn't explain why her lips look so different from when she was Mrs. Tom Cruise.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Likely

What Dr. Levine says:
"She's clearly had some enhancements. Botox gives her eyebrows an unnatural arch, which also gives her a slightly angry appearance. Her face and forehead are devoid of lines, contributing to her ice queen image. She looks like she has had some injectibles to her lips and nasolabial folds (the crease between her nose and corner of mouth). She may have had some surgical refinements to her nose as well."

Janet Jackson

Janet is the ultimate yo-yo dieter—one month she's up, the next she's down. The singer recently revealed her once-again rock hard abs to the skeptical public, who think Janet may have gotten some help with that six-pack.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Not Likely

What Dr. Levine says: "Janet Jackson credits her abs to diet and extensive training," Dr. Levine reminds us. "However I can't rule out liposuction or liposculpture as additional help to her abs."

Jessica Simpson

Jessica has always had big boobs—remember when she said that they get in the way of her playing golf—but we're thinking Ashlee's big sis may have taken a dip or two into the collagen pool to beef up her kisser.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Likely

What Dr. Levine says: "Jessica Simpson has played around with some injectibles to her lips and clearly has had Botox as well. In the "before" photo she has artificial and asymmetric winging of her eyebrows that give her a surprised look. In the "after" photo she probably has also had Botox to her crows feet to open her eyes."

Angelina Jolie

Angelina's pillowy ruby reds are the source of international envy. We're pretty sure that the star was just blessed by Mother Nature, but some think the lips that get to kiss Brad Pitt may get a boost every now and then.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Doubtful

What Dr. Levine says: "Angelina Jolie, in most photos, appears to have naturally full lips."

Paris Hilton

Some people think Paris Hilton has had a nose job—others think she still needs one. Though the socialite has never admitted to enhancing her natural beauty—she wouldn't dare—her before and after shots make us wonder.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Likely

What Dr. Levine says: "Paris Hilton has narrowing and shortening of her nasal tip in the 'after' photo. Her tip doesn't droop down as much as well."

Gisele Bundchen

Model Gisele flaunts her stellar bod on runways all over the world, but before she put the "super" in supermodel, Tom Brady's lady may have shaved just a tad off her sniffer.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis:
Doubtful

What Dr. Levine says: "Gisele may have had some slight narrowing and contouring of her nasal tip to give it some sculpting."

Jennifer Aniston

Jen's admitted to having a nose job (reportedly her second one), but did the actress make a good friend in her plastic surgeon and return for a little breast enhancement?

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Definitely

What Dr. Levine says: "Jennifer Aniston definitely has had revision rhinoplasty, but breast implants, I'm not so sure. I think that it is a good push-up bra and some padding."

Halle Berry

Pictures of a young Halle Berry show a very different nose than the one the pregnant actress is sporting today. Though Halle has never admitted to getting a nose job, we're thinking it goes without saying.

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Likely

What Dr. Levine says: "Halle Berry has had some very well done surgical enhancements to her nose. Her nose is narrower, as well as less flat. Her tip is much narrower and more defined, and goes up at the tip slightly, all of which are very aesthetic changes."

Brad Pitt

Brad's been a looker from day one—nobody will dispute that—but he has recently reached the big 4-5 and still looks as flawless as ever. Has Brad just been blessed with good genes?

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Doubtful

What Dr. Levine says: "Brad Pitt is just naturally handsome and is aging well. He's taken off his glasses, cut his hair and is 20 years older. It all works really well for him. Everyone should be so lucky!"

Kellie Pickler

After winning the country's heart as the dim-witted Southern gal on American Idol's season 5, Kellie Pickler returned for the finale of season 6 with two big hits (wink, wink). When Ryan Seacrest asked her if she made any new purchases, the blonde just said coyly, "Yes, shoes."

Plastic Surgery Prognosis: Likely

What Dr. Levine says: "Kellie Pickler has definitely had breast implants. They are much larger and are unnaturally round."
