Does Ellen DeGeneres Have Plastic Surgery?

The Emmy-winning host of the most popular daytime TV talk show in America, Ellen DeGeneres, is a senior in her 60s. However, she looks a lot younger than her age, leading people to wonder about her secrets to anti-aging.

If making people laugh is the reason, then maybe she will never get old. But while she has that youthful look and energy, she’s not totally without lines and wrinkles.

Whispers from her fans suggest that she had cosmetic procedures, such as botox, to minimize the signs of aging. This is perhaps a must since she is always on television.

While it seems uncanny to read about a funny girl who prioritizes her looks and appearance, we need to discover the truth.

Before & After Photos

To find out everything that Ellen may have done, we will take a close look at her pictures and see if we can spot any differences.

Did Ellen DeGeneres Have Facelift?

Ellen had some serious wrinkles on her face, as seen in this before photo. But it looks like those deep lines have faded over time.

On TV, you’ll see Ellen glow with her infectious smile and peaches-cream skin texture. But in recent times, her skin appears tighter, especially around the eyes and towards the cheeks. This could mean that she has gotten a subtle facelift and it worked wonders.

Has Ellen Had a Nose Job?

There have been talks about that Ellen had a nose job but we couldn’t find any evidence to support it.

Both the tip and bridge of her nose looks similar. They both appear to be the same size too.

Does She Have Botox?

The photo on the left had such bad light that it emphasized Ellen’s aging face and pale skin texture. The photo on the right, however, shows Ellen with smoother and glowing skin.

Those puffy face cheeks could be the result of botox injections and she looks kind of cute!

Did Ellen Get a Neck Lift?

Ellen’s neck had wrinkly and loosen skin back then, which people described as turkey neck.

But later on, she’s seen in public with a smoother neck, as well as some light scars. So, people speculated that she had a neck lift and we can’t really blame them given the evidence shown here.

Who would have thought that Ellen had so much baby fat on her face as a 15-year-old teen? She actually looked very chubby.

During the 80s

DeGeneres lost weight when she started touring for her work as a stand-up comedy artist in mid-1980s. She had a leaner body and kept her hair short and thick.

Year 1994

At 36, she starred in her own sitcom “Ellen” on ABC. People had no idea about her true sexuality yet so in her promo photos, Ellen wore earrings and dressed like any other woman.

Here, her face shape looks more rounded but it also showcased her sparkling blue eyes and a nearly perfect set of teeth.

Year 1997

Viewers thought it was Ellen’s preference to dress up like a tomboy on her show. But then, she confessed on Oprah Winfrey’s show that she’s actually a lesbian.

Today, she is one of Hollywood’s most powerful gay women.

At 45 years old, the hard-working comedian has become a major success and started her own daytime talk show. She also met her future wife, Portia De Rossi.

Signs of aging have started cropping up on her eye area, with more prominent fine lines.

Year 2008

DeGeneres became a skincare cosmetics spokesperson and also married Portia by this time. However, rumors that she has regular facial fillers also surfaced.

Year 2014

With her short hairstyle and glowing skin, Ellen was looking great on TV. Her people say she maintains a healthy diet and exercise routine, but some fans speculate something else.

Year 2018

At 60 years old, Ellen is a dominant but well-loved Hollywood A-lister.

Though she could still pass off as a 50-year-old, you can definitely see the lines around her eyes.

What Did Ellen Say About Plastic Surgery?

Ellen has never chatted up with any media about her alleged plastic surgery procedures. She does, however, have a strict diet free of carbs and sugar and she’s vegan. She told Shape magazine:

“Food used to be really important to me. I loved steak, I loved hamburgers, I loved all that stuff. I can’t believe how irresponsible I was, eating what I ate. I want to be on my toes; I want to have energy. And as much as the [vegan] diet seems like a sacrifice, it’s helping me.”

Ellen, however, acknowledges that she’s lucky to be able to afford a chef and a trainer. And like everyone else, she can’t believe she’s already in her 60s because she still acts like a child and pulls pranks on people.

This might explain her youthful energy and glow, and why she never acknowledges her cosmetic procedures in public. She’s an advocate of healthy living.

Back in 2015, however, an insider told InTouch that she wanted to have something done.

Ellen hates the wrinkles around her eyes and her turkey neck. She wanted to get work down while The Ellen DeGeneres Show is on summer break, [but] Portia talked her out of it.
