Korean singer IU, or Lee Ji-eun in real life, wanted to be a professional singer since she was a little kid. In middle school, she went to different auditions at talent agencies and landed a deal to make her first album at the age of 15.
Now a successful Kpop star in her mid-20s, IU has been making headlines not just because she’s talented and has churned many hits. She has also been the subject of many plastic surgery rumors.
The Korean beauty, who is known for songs like “Good Day” and “You & I,” is said to have undergone cosmetic enhancements to her face. Indeed, from her little sister image when she was just starting out, Ji-eun has blossomed to embrace a more sophisticated look and style, more so because her body has also matured.
In particular, people speculated that she had gotten an eye surgery to make her Asian eyes large and wide. There have also been rumors that IU had a nose job after she shifted her career to acting.
Fans have also come forward to show pictures of the Kpop star at a dermatology clinic and the stories surrounding IU’s beauty enhancements quickly escalated. But the singer and star of “Scarlet Heart Ryeo” have denied the plastic surgery rumors each time it’s brought up in interviews.
Before & After Photos
Is IU’s transformation really so drastic? Is this the reason why speculations that she has gone under the knife never stop?
Let’s examine pictures of the Korean star before and after she became famous. We should be able to see some evidence of the procedures she has supposedly undergone.
As a child, IU had big rounded eyes. The singer looked so adorable, yet trendy, with that green scarf on her head. This childhood photo of her might perhaps shut down the rumors that she had her eyes widened. The evidence clearly tells us that her big eyes are indeed natural.
Although minimal, she definitely had eyelids too.
When she was a young girl, IU had typical Korean features. She’s a beauty alright but not quite the standout she is today. With her natural long black hair hanging on the side of her cheeks, you can see she had a slightly chubby face shape. Her nose, on the other hand, looked flat and less prominent.
Here we see IU’s pre debut photo featuring her little sister persona. Her cute hairstyle suited her well but she had a noticeable gap on her front tooth that might have been fixed later with braces.
IU’s eyes, though naturally big, appeared to have been enhanced further because she now has very visible double eyelids. This started the rumors that she had blepharoplasty but then her defenders say they likely came with age.
What do you think?
At 15 years old, Lee Ji-eun joined LOEN Entertainment and soon released her first song “Lost Child.” You can clearly see she still had baby fat as a teenager with a much rounder face. Just look at those chubby cheeks and wide jawline. They were actually part of her appeal as the nation’s budding star.
With the release of “Nagging” in 2010, IU became a certified Korean hitmaker. She also decided to try her hand in acting casting for the teen drama “Dream High” and made a slight change to her image. Donning a reddish brown hair color, the gorgeous singer wore more mature makeup to enhance her feminine features. However, her flat nose remained the same, especially around the nasal bridge.
IU’s cosmetic enhancements seemed more obvious at 19 years old. First off, the possible nose job. It’s not hard to miss the nose bridge when there was no higher bone right there before.
Her face shape also appeared to change because of her pointy chin when she used to have a square jaw. Did she get a jaw reduction surgery or was this shot the result of photoshop? Perhaps she lost weight?
This was the year Ji-eun visited Los Angeles for the KCon. It might just be the camera angle but her face size looked bigger again. Her jawline and chin also looked less defined but her nose shape seems unmistakably enhanced. Whether it’s makeup or surgery…we’ll let you decide that one.
Deliberate or not, IU attempted to look more mature with the red lipstick and fashionable choker. It appears she really wanted to show the world she’s no longer just the little sister of South Korea.
Lee was a revelation during her performance in China. A slimmer upper body enhanced the star’s breast size. Speculations that she got a boob job quickly became the hot topic among fans but she might have just been wearing a really good bra underneath the body-hugging dress. In fact, you can see the push-up bra’s silhouette if you look closely in this photo.
Meanwhile, at this side angle, IU’s pointy nose tip is becoming more obvious. This further adds to the nose job rumor that we’ve been hearing.
During this year, IU once again changed her image following the release of her album “Palette.” Opting for a short hairstyle and minimal makeup, the singer achieved a more natural look without too much cosmetics. She obviously has a good skincare plan because her skin appears smooth and blemish-free.
In October 2018, IU launched another single and music video, “Bbibbi,” to celebrate her 10th year in the business. This selfie confirms just how much she has developed into a stunning woman. So far, her lips show no signs of lip fillers so we can at least tick that off our list. Her V-shaped face in this one, however, is still puzzling us.
What did IU say about plastic surgery?
In 2011, IU addressed the stories about her nose job. In an interview on the show “Night by Night,” the star confessed:
“My company didn’t want me to get surgery. But I wanted to get plastic surgery so I begged them. I have a small and flat nose, and it’s always been a complex of mine. I asked my company before my debut, and I visited a plastic surgery clinic. They told me that I had such thin skin that if they raised my nose, it would only be raised 1mm. I was disappointed and just came back without getting the procedure.”
In a separate incident reported by Soompi, there was a screenshot of IU’s old interview with an unknown magazine that was posted online and it had a title of ‘The honest IU, coolly admitted it (plastic surgery)’.
Apparently, there was an anonymous writer who wrote:
IU goes to the same hospital as Kang Yumi. This place is famous for two-jaw surgeries. Why would IU go here instead of a regular dermatologist?
Now according to Koreaboo, ID Esthetics is a dermatology clinic, but unfortunately we are unable to verify nor pinpoint the exact location of this clinic.
At least, their analysis of IU’s eyes seems to match ours so we are on the same page in this one.

Cosmetic surgeries are nothing new to Korean stars and IU joins the ranks of other famous people whose physical appearance has been talked about over and over. Despite her denial in 2011, there appears to be some evidence suggesting that she may have had rhinoplasty sometime later. It just seems impossible to grow a nose bridge that high and prominent without the help of a Korean plastic surgeon. So, we’ll let you decide that yourself.
However, we’ll hold off the verdict on her eyelid surgery. If there was a change in her eyes, it was a subtle one and there simply isn’t enough proof to support this claim. We’re also not firm on the talks that she had a jaw reduction surgery. Arguably, these enhancements may be achieved through good makeup techniques or angling in front of the cameras.
It’s also hard to say that Ji-eun had boobs augmentation since she grew up in the limelight. People will immediately notice if her body appearance changes too much. But whether IU’s physical features are real or fake, it doesn’t take away the fact that she’s still one of the best and most bankable Kpop music artists today.

Victoria Beckham Before and After Plastic Surgery Photos
Victoria Beckham is most popularly known as Posh Spice from the girl band Spice Girls. She is also the better-half of soccer star David Beckham, whom she has been married to since 1999. I know…what a lucky girl, right?
After the Spice Girls disbanded, Victoria charted a career in fashion and was quite successful at it. Because of her persona and image in the public, however, people grew curious about her style and beauty.
As a mother of four children, Victoria managed to remain gorgeous, slim and pretty hot too. That’s why people think that the former pop superstar had plastic surgery to improve her appearance. She doesn’t seem to age and there appear to be some unnatural features on her face and body.
Victoria has been rumored to have gotten a nose job and fillers to improve her facial features. The shape of her rounded breasts, on the other hand, has also been scrutinized and even ridiculed because of how odd it looks against her body.
Posh Spice used to deny these cosmetic procedures but as she got older, she has been more open about the things she has done to transform her looks.
Before & After Photos
While there are a lot of before and after pictures of Victoria Beckham on the Internet that can detail her transformation, but I promise, you have seen nothing like these.
Did Victoria Beckham have botox?
Victoria has such a rigid face and it might be because of all the botox she’s getting. If you look closely at the “after” photo, her face cheeks look a little swollen.
There are hardly any lines or wrinkles around her forehead, her cheeks and mouth area. Also, she has this one expression on her face, which I believe is likely due to botox injections.
Has Victoria had a nose job?
Not sure if you noticed, but there is a dramatic difference in Victoria’s nose in these photos. Posh had a bulbous nose when she was just starting out as a singer with the Spice Girls.
But now, her nose bridge is much thinner and the tip looks more refined. If this was the result of rhinoplasty, then I think her plastic surgeon has done a good job. The lovelier nose shape compliments her small face really well.
Did Victoria get lip fillers?
Something is definitely going on with Victoria’s lips and I doubt it was just good lipstick or makeup application. Her top lip looks much bigger than her natural pluckers so yes, I think she might have tried lip injections here.
The good thing, however, is that she didn’t get her lip fillers overdone. I think the size of her new lips fits her face shape quite well so good for her!
Yes, she had breast implants
Until recently, Victoria was not open about getting breast implants in her youth. But you can clearly see that she was flat-chested in this “before” photo, in her younger years. Her breasts grew at least two times bigger in the “after” photo.
I remember Victoria used to get a lot of bad press for her augmentation procedure because her full and rounded boobs looked so odd against her thin body frame. I wasn’t impressed with her boob job either because, to be honest, it looked like she had some built-in floaters on her chest.
She also got breast reduction
Years after getting her boobs lifted, Victoria decided to have a breast reduction surgery following the birth of her fourth child. She admitted that her earlier boob job was a mistake and she regretted messing it up.
Now, Victoria Beckham’s breast size looks a lot more natural, as shown in this pic where she’s wearing a plunging black dress. She’s down to a 34A cup from the 34DD she used to have. I think she looks more sexy and attractive compared to those fake implants before.
Her teeth look better now
The thing is, Victoria’s fans don’t often see her teeth because Posh Spice has a trademark “bitch face,” where she doesn’t actually smile in her photos. One of the reasons could be because she had darker and crooked teeth before.
It’s obvious she had those corrected now based on this “after” photo. Her front teeth look more even and it’s a lot whiter too. So looks like teeth whitening and dental veneers were inevitable.
Victoria Beckham’s earlier boob job didn’t make her look attractive at all. It was a good thing she decided to remove those implants because I think it didn’t do her any favors.
Posh Spice admitted she had to deny her plastic surgery procedures in her younger years because of her insecurity. I have to give her props for opening up about this because not a lot of celebrities would be upfront about the artificial changes they have done to their appearance.
While she hasn’t fully embraced her natural beauty — she’s still likely getting botox, after all — it’s refreshing to see Victoria becoming more open about the flaws on her face and body. Vanity is part of being a public persona but I appreciate that Victoria is more honest about her procedures.

Did Nicki Minaj Get Breast & Butt Implants?
Isn’t it amazing how curvy Nicki Minaj is with such a small frame?
She’s not exactly tall by Hollywood standards, but her chest and rear ends are larger than life. Yes, they are almost unnatural.
So if you’ve ever thought that she might be a work of plastic surgery, me too!
But I prefer to let the pictures do the talking.
Anything else is pointless.
Teenage & Early Adult Years
There is only one way to do this.
We have to go way back to Nicki’s earlier days, before she stepped onto the scene. This should give us a rough idea of how her face and body have changed.
Check these out.
This was during her high school days. I’m guessing she’s around 14-15?
18 Years Old
When Nicki turned 18, a full grown woman, she joined a group called “The Hoodstar”. She still looks rather innocent here so I doubt she even thought about having breast implants. To be fair, it doesn’t look like she needed it either.
Before signing with Young Money
This picture further confirmed my assumption. The rapper looks around 19 or 20 years old here. It’s clear that she already has large breasts and real too.
If you’ve never seen the skinny version of Nicki Minaj, you’re not alone! I’m not sure when these photos were taken, but it was hard to ignore her “smaller” bum size.
Before and After Pictures
With these evidence, I started to piece together the puzzles by comparing them side by side. This should tell us whether the star has implants in her body.
Did Nicki Minaj have a boob job?
This one wasn’t easy.
It’s obvious the rapper has bigger boobs these days but her body size also seems bigger in general. The fact that she had a decent bust size to begin with makes it even harder to believe she had an augmentation.
While it’s not unusual for breasts to grow larger with increased body mass, I believe Nicki enhances them with the way she dresses also. So no, I don’t believe she did it.
Does Nicki have fake butt implants?
I guess we all had our answers.
But when I saw how small and flat her bottom used to be, it was quite a shock. I just didn’t expect the difference to be this massive. Looks like her backside is likely to be fake and is enhanced by implants or fat injections.
What do you think?
Let’s be honest, we all kind of knew that there was something unusual about Minaj’s body. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here, right?
Don’t get me wrong. Nicki looks absolutely gorgeous and even if she does have a surgeon by her side, it doesn’t take away the fact that she is a true talent.
Miley Cyrus: Before and After
Miley Cyrus has made a name for herself at an early age. Starring as the titular character in the Disney series “Hannah Montana,” Cyrus had legions of fans composed of young girls who look up to her and idolize her as the coolest person to be.
But Miley’s public persona changed when she got older. Following her infamous twerk at a music awards show, Miley today is known as the wild child who’s in the spotlight because of her controversial behavior and views about life, which has overshadowed her talent as a singer and actress.
I remember how a big deal this lewd dance was with people saying that Miley ruined her wholesome Disney image. It was definitely a bold move and a shocking change as Miley made it known to the world she was no longer an innocent girl.
Growing up before the eyes of the public, people wondered if Miley had undergone plastic surgery to change her looks to go along with her sexy image. When the “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker started wearing revealing clothes, there were speculations that she had cosmetic augmentations to her breasts and perhaps also changed the shape of her nose through rhinoplasty.
Given the world she thrives in and growing up in a showbiz family, these speculations and talks about Miley’s plastic surgery may have a basis. With the superstar seemingly open to trying anything, it doesn’t look like Miley might be one to shun a procedure to enhance her appearance.
Before & After Photos
So, did Miley have any plastic surgery and what could those possibly be? We’ll have to go through some of her before and after photos for the answers. What we’ll find might just surprise us — in the classic Miley way!
Did Miley Cyrus have nose job?
Nose jobs in Hollywood are as common as breathing. While some fans claim she got her nose fixed it’s hard to see how she had rhinoplasty when there are little changes to its size and shape. These before and after photos show that Miley has had the same nose shape all her life. Shocking, I know!
A slight or subtle nose change would have been a complete waste of money because it won’t have any significant effect on her face. Although her nose isn’t perfect, I don’t see any indication that Miley had a nose job.
Has Miley had breast implants?
Miley has also been the subject of a boob job rumor especially when she dresses so provocatively. I believe her breast size and shape are all-natural though, which might be surprising for her critics. These photos don’t show any evidence that she had breast augmentation.
I would say that “The Climb” singer’s body changed because people saw her transform from an adolescent to an adult. Naturally, her boobs would have taken shape by the time she was old enough to wear sexy clothes. Her bust size, for me, isn’t too large or too small. Lucky her!
Did Miley get botox on her face?
Miley is too young to get botox on her face. So, any rumors saying that she’s getting botox injections are completely off the mark. She’s in her mid-’20s and doesn’t have to worry about lines and wrinkles for the next 10 years, I would think. The fact that she’s a vegan might have helped her maintain a gorgeous and flawless skin, too.
Does Miley have lip injections?
I actually watched Miley on “The Voice,” where she was one of the singing mentors. The thing that I noticed about her most, aside from her big round eyes and crazy outfits, are her beautiful lips. I must admit that I have suspected her of getting lip injections.
However, after comparing these before and after pictures, Miley’s lips look naturally puckered up even when she was young. This is particularly evident on the top lip so I don’t think she needed fillers to enhance them.
What about teeth braces and veneers?
This girl definitely did undergo cosmetic dentistry. She has much better-looking teeth now than before. Her dental procedure looks extensive because of her prominent gums (see photo on the left) but that seems to have been fixed now (see photo on the right).
You can also see signs of braces by looking at her bottom row which has clearly been straightened. The singer wasn’t shy about sharing her dental work on social media either when she was 22 years old. Miley even posted photos of the molars that the dentist took out and it seems like she has veneers for her upper teeth.
Miley Cyrus: Then and Now
Let’s check out how different Miley looks before she became famous as we dive deeper into her transformation over the years.
An adorable Miley Cyrus was nicknamed “Smiley” by her parents because she smiled a lot. Thus, the nickname stuck and was shortened to Miley.
Miley in 2004
The actress was 11 when she auditioned to be Hannah Montana. She looks like a vibrant and spunky child and those eyes also smiled when she smiles.
Miley in 2006
Miley became a certified teen idol following the massive success of “Hannah Montana.” She has maintained that adorable smile and spark on her face, which was why young girls continued to idolized her back at the height of her Disney popularity.
Miley in 2008
She’s slowly growing up. Miley kept her dark long curly tresses the way it was for years because it was part of her “Hannah Montana” persona. I have to mention that Miley has sexy long legs and she modestly showed it off in this outfit with the gradient blue above-the-knee dress and half-boots.
Miley in 2010
Hannah Montana is now a woman at 18 years old, which was hard to digest for some parents with young girls. I think her makeup here was nicely done and she tamed her curly looks by straightening out some of the waves and changing her hair color, which made her look sexier.
Miley in 2013
The drastic change began with Miley chopping off her locks. This hairstyle made Miley go from “nice” to “naughty” and some people couldn’t handle the change. Although she looked different, there were no signs of cosmetic surgeries anywhere on her face and body.
Miley in 2015
Miley was every-inch a grown-up in this black dress for the Grammys. The brushed up short hair and no jewelry were a nice touch because the focus was on her dress with the asymmetrical cut. It hugged her shapely figure perfectly.
Miley in 2017
For some reason, I see some resemblance to a young Madonna in this photo. What do you think? I’m not especially fond of her white off-shoulder top but I think she carried it well with the matching white pants, layered jewelry, and cowboy hat.
Miley in 2019
She looks quite odd in this photo from the Met Gala. It could be the over-styled hair. It looks too flat and straightened, and the photographer caught her with an odd pose. Still, her big round eyes draw all the attention. It’s just so blue and bright.
While there were talks that the singer had her nose thinned, but I think it’s simply the magic of makeup.
What does Miley Cyrus say about plastic surgery?
In 2011, Miley, who was then 19, addressed rumors that she had a breast augmentation. Posting on Twitter, the superstar said:
“Thank you for the compliment but these babies are all mine. I wish they’d realize you don’t have to be fake to be beautiful!”

I’m part of the unpopular opinion that Miley Cyrus is an all-natural beauty. Apart from her dental fixes, I don’t think she has had any other procedures done to her face or body just yet.
It doesn’t look like Miley got a boob job nor a nose job. In fact, it will be a while before she’ll even consider any anti-aging treatments because of her age. She doesn’t need these for now.
In due time, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did get cosmetic surgery. And only because I think she’s a woman who will boldly try anything once. But for all her controversies, I appreciate that Miley lives her life by her rules, which is actually quite hard to do if you’re a Hollywood celebrity and has to maintain an “image.”
