Brazilian model Adriana Lima is best known as one of Victoria’s Secret Angels. She has earned the distinction of being part of the prestigious annual fashion show for nearly 10 years (1999-2018) and was named the Most Valuable Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2017.
Adriana started making a mark in the modeling world at a young age of 15, after winning in the “Supermodel of Brazil” competition. Since then, her gorgeous face and hot body have graced magazine covers and billboards all over the world. She’s also the spokesmodel for the popular makeup brand Maybelline.
But even as her appearance is close to perfection, rumors abound that Adriana underwent plastic surgery to improve her looks. Specifically, people speculated that she had a boob job that really made a difference to her cup size.
Fans also guessed that the supermodel had augmentations to her nose and lips to enhance her beauty. And now that she’s a bit older, Adriana may have also started having regular botox.
But despite the rumors, this Brazilian runway star and some-time actress has denied that she sees a plastic surgeon. She doesn’t participate nor indulges the press in discussions about what part of her is real or fake.
Before & After Photos
Did the most lauded VS Angel ever get help from cosmetic surgery? To find out what’s natural or cosmetically enhanced with her beauty, we’ve gone through many pictures before and after Adriana became famous.
See our “exclusive” comparison photos below.
Did Adriana have botox?
Something about Adriana’s face seems different in these images. She had lines and prominent cheekbones in the before photo but those disappeared in the after image.
Has Adriana gained weight, which contributed to the change in her face shape and puffiness? Or is this the result of botox injections? The area around her cheeks and under the mouth is unusually smoother in the pic to the right.
Now that she’s in her late ’30s, Adriana may be showing signs of aging so that could explain why she may be getting a cosmetic enhancement to keep her youthful appearance. What do you reckon?
Has Lima had breast implants?
When this supermodel was just starting out, she had small breasts and a flat chest like this before photo will show. But as she became in demand, Adriana’s boobs became busty. The change in the breast size clearly suggests that she had a breast augmentation.
However, if this is true, then her implants look quite natural and fitting for the size of her upper body. And, if she did this to help her career then it’s obviously a good move. She looks even hotter and more perfect after the boob job.
Does she have nose job?
Adriana has been rumored to have a rhinoplasty, with some fans citing that her nose bridge looks thinner and the tip appears to be pinched. But nothing indicates those changes in these before and after photos.
Comparing what’s here, Adriana’s nose seems to be similar in shape and size. It doesn’t look like she had a nose job. If you see a difference, you can bet that it’s the work of a good makeup artist. Don’t you think so?
Did Adriana Lima get lip fillers?
People speculate that Adriana gets lip injections to enhance that sensual and alluring expression on her face. But based on these photos, it looks like this supermodel has naturally pouty lips. We’d wager that she has no lip fillers. Her younger photo shows that the size of her lips is the same as her older self.
What about Adriana’s teeth?
It looks like Adriana might’ve had a gum reduction surgery to fix the depth of her gumline so that her smile looks better on camera. But the way we see it, her teeth show no signs of dental veneers or braces. She did not need to do much with her dentist to change that beautiful smile and we love it!
Adriana Lima: Then and Now
Let’s take a look at this Brazilian model’s transformation. See if we can pick up any “extra” work or prove once and for all that she is indeed a natural hottie. Who knows!
Adriana in her childhood
Since Adriana Lima has always been a pretty girl, she joined and won numerous crowns in beauty competitions as a child. Those big eyes are unmistakably her best features. Doesn’t she look like Britney Spears in this photo?
Adriana as a teenager
This was how Adriana looked like as a teen when she won the title “Supermodel of Brazil.” Gorgeous at 15, Adriana had a beautiful nose shape and chin that made her profile stood out.
Adriana in 1998
By this year, Lima landed her first magazine cover for Marie Claire Brazil and started ramping on the catwalks at fashion shows. She had a short hairstyle back then that others think was ugly but it actually drew attention to her baby face. Besides, she had a knockout body shape that’s perfect for the runway.
Adriana in 2000
As 19-year-old Adriana Lima graced GUESS ads, she was on her way to becoming a star on the international runway. This time she had medium curly hair and dark purple lipstick that made her look more mature for her age. But notice that her chest area was quite flat. It was unlike how it would appear a few years later…
Adriana in 2003
Adriana has modeled at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show quite a number of times before this. However, this was the year her frame was in top form with her boobs fuller, her cleavage deeper, and her legs in perfect shape.
People speculated that she had breast implants to boost her bust size as she modeled one of the most expensive push-up bras from Victoria’s Secret.
Adriana in 2006
Adriana Lima was on the cover of GQ’s top-selling issue for this year. The magazine dubbed her “The World’s Most Voluptuous Virgin.” She looked so refreshingly beautiful in this photo with her wavy hair and bright eye makeup. You can see that her teeth and gums aren’t flawless but she still has a gorgeous smile.
Adriana in 2009
At 35 years old, Adriana married NBA star Marko Jarić and became pregnant with their first daughter. She looks so classy and elegant in this beautiful close up with only a pair of hoop earrings to accentuate her look.
Adriana in 2012
Adriana still commanded the stage in this Victoria Secret’s lingerie even after giving birth to her second child. You can see some cellulite on her body but there are no traces of liposuction or tummy tuck on her form. To get in shape, Adriana works with a personal trainer for her exercise and diet.
Adriana in 2016
Adriana attended the Met Gala the year she divorced from her husband looking unbothered by the rumors about her married life. She looked so slick with her neatly groomed eyebrows. She wore a little trace of cosmetics, except for a striking red lipstick and deeply drawn eyeliner.
Her hairdo drew out her eyes, chin and jawline. Her lavish and extensive skin care routine worked so well for her because her face is still unblemished after all these years of wearing makeup.
Adriana in 2018
Adriana’s puffy face cheeks sparked another round of botox rumors but could it simply be the makeup she’s wearing? And did she have a breast reduction surgery to get her implants removed?
It looks like she’s back to her real boobs in this dress. There’s a tiny hint of cleavage to her form unlike when she’s walking the runway in that sexy VS lingerie.
Adriana in 2020
Saying that Adriana looks spectacular at 39 is probably an understatement. I can’t even find a wrinkle on her. Can you?

Adriana Lima has never talked about her alleged plastic surgeries so the buzz about her botox, nose job and lip fillers remain speculations. It’s hard to tell differences to her face. From where we sit, nothing much has changed in those areas. But we do notice the very dramatic transformation of her breasts, especially after becoming a mother of two. She has never talked about her boob job but the changes to her chest are quite obvious since she puts her body on display year after year at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
With her possible breast augmentations, her fans wonder if she has also had done alterations to her body including her buttocks now that she’s older. In fairness to Adriana, however, it is public knowledge that she has a rigid workout schedule at the gym and follows a strict diet plan, as she often posts these on her social media accounts.
But people will continue to speculate about what’s natural or fake about her looks because it is her bread and butter. Yet, if she wants to keep her plastic procedures private, she’s totally entitled to be mum about it too.
