It’s a occurance that’s not uncommon: You are clicking through some #TBTs and happen upon an old picture of a celeb that looks more like a plastic surgery before and after than a just a childhood photo. And, yes, while it’s true that tons of celebs have had some alterations—and will even admit to it—not all famous people are super open about their plastic surgery adventures, leaving us to wonder if they’ve gone under the knife or if they are just contouring masters.
Obviously, landing in Hollywood means you have access to the world’s best plastic surgeons, most of whom are adept at tweaking a star’s visage just enough to make them look like a more attractive version of their God-given selves. Translation: Not everyone gets brand-new faces, but rather a thinner nose here, a chin implant there, an ever-so-slight brow lift—the list goes on.
Here, we’ve highlighted 30 celebrities who all seem to have some work done. Granted, many have aged or thinned out which indeed can contribute to facial changes, but if you really turn a critical eye to their actual features, you might start to see that all look quite different from they once did.
We’re not here to judge, just make educated guesses.
