Britney Spears rose to fame in the 1990s as the princess of pop. Today, she still looks quite different than she did when she was 16 and dressed up as a schoolgirl in the “…Baby One More Time” music video. This has caused many to ask…has the singer ever had any plastic surgery done?
Why People Think She’s Had Plastic Surgery
Rumors first started about Spears’ looks when she was just a teen, as there were reports that her mother made her get breast implants and that she later had them removed.
In 2014, more speculation arose, as some thought Spears looked very unlike herself on the cover of Women’s Health. In response to the magazine cover, one Twitter user wrote: “Dude Britney Spears needs to chill with the plastic surgery.”
The tabloids got in on the action, too, and Radar Online quoted two plastic surgeons (who haven’t treated Spears) who speculated that it looked like she had filler in her cheeks and Botox in her forehead.
However, sources involved with the photoshoot told TMZ that it wasn’t surgery—just contouring. Makeup artists have a lot of tools at their disposal, so it is best to avoid jumping to conclusions on the basis of a single magazine cover.
Has Britney Spears Gotten Plastic Surgery?
So are any of these rumors true? Well, in 2014, Spears spoke about her beauty regimen, sharing, “A doctor I see, Dr. Kanodia, does fun stuff to me sometimes—I’ve had lip injections before.”
In 2021, she turned to Instagram to say that, no, she did not get a boob job. “I have boobs in these pics cause I devoured food!!!!” she wrote (via ET Online).
However, in March 2022, she revealed (in a now-deleted Instagram post) that she had considered getting a breast augmentation. She even went as far as going in for a consultation with a plastic surgeon but ended up leaving before meeting with the doctor.
A month prior, she also admitted she was considering getting Botox and talked about “the last time” she had the injections done. “My eyebrow was raised like the funny girl in the movie ‘Just Go With It.’ For three weeks, it wouldn’t come down; it stayed up there!!!”
Whether people’s guesswork about this pop star’s cosmetic procedures is fact or fiction, we can surely all agree on a couple of points: Britney Spears is free, and she looks great.
