Has Jennifer Lopez Had Cosmetic Surgery?

If we tell you that superstar actress, singer, and dancer Jennifer Lopez wasn’t always the perfect-looking, glamorous and voluptuous woman with the show-stopping sense of style, would you believe us?

Did you know that before she got her start in Hollywood, J Lo actually looked so different that people always wondered if she had plastic surgery afterward?

Once known as “Jenny from the Block,” J Lo hasn’t gone on record and never admitted to any kind of cosmetic enhancement. In fact, in 2013, the “Maid in Manhattan” star confronted a top plastic surgeon who tweeted that she enhanced her beautiful image with face fillers or botox and made changes to her body through science.

You’ve got to wonder, though — how does Jennifer manage to maintain her hot and appealing looks over the years? She has been in the business for more than three decades and yet she still looks like she hasn’t aged a day. J Lo has also given birth to twins but she still has amazing shapely breasts. People suspect a boob job, but Jenny is keeping her mouth shut about it.

She has also kept her bottom firm all these years. Yes, J Lo has one of the best bum shapes in the business and it makes sense that she takes good care of this asset with cosmetic procedures. With all the complicated dance moves she has to do when she’s on stage, we doubt she makes do with just a fake butt.

If Jennifer’s looks and appeal aren’t the work of cosmetic surgeries, then what’s her magic secret?

Before & After Photos

To find out whether Jennifer had any beauty enhancements done by doctors, we examine many photos before and after she became famous. This should help us find some definitive clues.

Let’s take a look at our comparison pics below!

Did Jennifer Lopez Get Butt Augmentation?

Did Jennifer Lopez Have Butt Implants?

Jennifer is a pioneer of embracing the big bum long before Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj made it the norm. But then, the real question…is Jennifer’s butt real or fake?

Plastic surgeon Dr. Wilberto Cortes told InTouch Weekly that he thinks J Lo’s bottom hasn’t got any augmentation. Her butt is all-natural, thanks to her Latina genes, and it actually shows in her old music videos or films from the 1990s, as well as in this “before” photo.

The “Booty” singer also said in interviews that she has never thought of getting butt implants. She apparently works on toning her bum shape at the gym regularly.

Does J Lo Have Breast Implants?

Has Jennifer Lopez Had A Boob Job?

It’s no secret that J Lo has men drooling at her from all around the world and she knows she has the body to die for. But is her breast size for real or did she get a boob job?

In her younger years, Jennifer’s old photo on the left reveals a budding woman ready to take on Hollywood by storm, but her chest back then was at least two sizes down from the bigger and rounder breasts in this “after” image.

Besides, breast implants make Jennifer’s boobs look a lot better when she’s wearing those sexy costumes and body-hugging red carpet gowns, which she does a lot of times, by the way. So we think she made a good call if she did get breast augmentation surgery.

Has She Had A Nose Job?

Did Jennifer Lopez Have A Nose Job?

Even if she denies it, several plastic surgeons say that J Lo’s face shows some subtle signs of rhinoplasty. Her old nose had a nasal bridge that looked wider compared to her latest photo.

Jennifer’s nose also had a rounder tip when she was just starting out in showbiz but even if she got it fixed now, it still looks natural. What do you think? Does that look like a nose job to you?

Did Jennifer Have Botox & Facelift?

While the work on her nose is subtle, her possible face lift is a lot more noticeable.

Dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz told The Hollywood Life that J Lo seemed to have botox done to lift her eyebrows. New York plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Pearlman also told the publication that Jennifer’s face appears to have had fillers and it’s most obvious on her cheeks when she smiles.

Some surgeons also think that Jen had more botox as she aged to deal with the wrinkles, which is why she still looks almost the same from 15 years ago.

It’s unclear, however, if she went as far as getting a neck lift and browlift. J Lo swears that her anti-aging secrets involve regular cleansing and microdermabrasion from her dermatologist, medical grade moisturizers and lots of sleep.

Did She Have Cosmetic Work On Her Teeth?

No doubt, J Lo has one of sexiest smiles in showbiz, but according to Dr. Katz, her lips’ fullness and the defined mouth shape are the results of lip injections like Juvederm or Restalyne.

Her dazzling smile can also be attributed to dental veneers. Jennifer’s teeth have definitely been treated and enhanced with whitening techniques so that she’s always ready to show off her pearly whites for the cameras.

Jennifer’s Transformation

The A-list star didn’t stumble into the industry by chance. She had to work her way up from a background dancer to a lead actress and producer. J Lo is one of the hardest working stars of Hollywood. If she sees herself as a brand, it seems right to invest in her looks with beauticians, stylists, personal trainers and perhaps…plastic surgeries.

Let’s see how her style, facial and body features have changed through the years.

Early Days

When she was young, teenager J Lo had thick hair. We’ll give her a pass for this hairstyle though because it was the ’80s and her hair was on trend.

Year 1991

At the start of her career, Jennifer performed as a backup dancer in the sketch comedy series “In Loving Color.” She sported curly hair and had a less sophisticated style. She also had a rounder face shape during these years.

Year 1995

One of her first big Hollywood movies was a film called “Money Train” with Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes. Jenny had a fuller body shape, a rounder upper body and fat arms back then. Her boob size was also smaller. By no means was this “Hollywood standard,” but that was about to change.

Year 1999

Cutting her first hit single, “If You Had My Love,” Jennifer slowly transformed her looks by this time. We suspect it began with a chin implant as her chin became well-defined. Here in a cleavage bearing dress, Jennifer looked so comfortable showing off her natural breasts.

Year 2001

Thus began J Lo’s experimentation with her looks. She came to the Teen’s Choice Awards wearing a wavy hairstyle and enhanced her skin color to a darker shade of tan to exude the vibe of the 70s. Her nose shape looks slightly altered in this photo but is it a nose job or makeup?

Year 2003

This busty look says “Superstar!” as Jennifer attends the premiere of “Maid in Manhattan” in a shapely dress that hugged her body. It’s hard not to notice the transformation of her bust size, which literally screamed implants in there. But if her boob job rumor is true…then her surgeon has done well because they looked quite natural.

Year 2007

The American singer arrives at the 2007 Vanity Fair Oscar Party at Mortons in West Hollywood, California. Jennifer’s makeup in this photo emphasized the beauty of her eyes and defined her cheeks and jawline. We can’t tell if she had eye surgery to open up her eyes but they definitely look bigger.

Year 2010

Once again, J Lo played up her eyes with a dramatic eye makeup and a nude shade for her lips when she attended the Met Gala. She brightened her hair color with a lighter shade of brown.

Year 2014

Jennifer turned heads with this dress at the MTV Video Music Awards because it showed off her best asset – the buttocks. People perhaps wondered if she had a butt augmentation but the outfit also left little to the imagination as the slit and cuts revealed her legs and side boobs.

Year 2016

Jennifer said that after pregnancy she lost weight through diet and exercise. Face surgery rumors such as a facelift, however, grew even louder now that she’s a mom of twins in her 40s. We notice the slight change in her face cheeks and nose in this photo but her lipstick color choice called more attention.

Year 2017

Jennifer shut down the naysayers who said that her body began to sag a little after giving birth by wearing a dress with an out-of-this-world style. J Lo sparked buzz about plastic surgeries yet again but whether she had liposuction or a tummy tuck, this hot momma owned the red carpet at the Billboard Awards.

Year 2018

To combat aging, fans suspect that Jennifer regularly goes to the doctor for lip fillers and may have also had a brow lift. We noticed that she kept her brows thicker to make her face look younger — an anti-aging trick makeup artists use.

Though Jennifer was quite outspoken about opposing cosmetic surgery and became salty with a surgeon, we still think that she might’ve had some enhancements done on her face such as botox or injected fillers. The most noticeable change is in her nose via rhinoplasty. But if true, J Lo only underwent a subtle beauty transformation.

J Lo did not need any butt implants. We believe that her best asset is also her most natural asset. There were no signs of Brazilian butt lift including fat transfer and butt injections either. However, we think there’s a good chance that she did go under the knife for breast implants because the bust size difference is just too obvious.

Despite her talents and abilities as a singer, actress, dancer, and businesswoman, Jennifer invested in her face and body to help her get to the top. Whether that’s through surgical or non-surgical help, it’s good to know that everything worked out well for her, as she is indeed one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
