Did Mel B (Scary Spice) Have Cosmetic Surgery?

Updated on

Spice Girls member Mel B, or Melanie Janine Brown in real life, made her mark in the music and entertainment industry in the 1990s. She was the girl band’s most outspoken member “Scary Spice” and stood out because of her unique physical features, namely her fuzzy hair, tan skin, and busty body.

Like many celebs, her best assets have led Mel B to face numerous controversies in life including a number of plastic surgery claims. Some fans believed her boobs were augmented because her breast size seems quite large for her slim body frame. There were also talks about her using cosmetic enhancements for her face, nose, and even butt.

This is especially true during recent years where talks of Mel B using botox as her anti-aging secret became headlines. The truth is, she’s no longer a spring chicken so it makes sense to seek alternatives if traditional skincare routes no longer work as effectively.

Now, are beauty surgeons really a big part of her life as a celebrity?

Does she visit a clinic often to maintain her smoldering hot appearance?

Allow us to break it down for you…

Before & After Photos

Did Mel B get a few procedures to alter her looks or is she a natural beauty? Let’s compare some before and after pictures to find out.

Are Mel B’s Boobs Real or Fake?

Did Mel B Have Boob Job?

Rumors stated that Mel B had a boob job after giving birth to her first child. She allegedly got breast implants to give her bust a more defined shape and a larger bra size, as seen in this after photo. But even then, Mel B’s breasts have never lacked volume as evident in this before shot.

To be fair, it’s hard to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s faked with surgery by looking at these images. However, she seemed to have gained some weight in the pic on the right so that could be the reason why her boob size appears fuller. What do you think?

Did She Get Botox on Her Face?

Mel B’s face is striking and beautiful but you can tell from these photos that something has changed. She looks more puffy in the after photo, especially around the cheeks. This tells us that she may have used botox injections as her way to combat fine lines and wrinkles.

Has Melanie Brown Had Facelift?

Has Mel B Had Facelift?

At first glance, it might seem like Mel B had a face lift to look younger. Her before photo shows prominent laugh lines but the wrinkles are gone in the after pic. But we’re not inclined to believe she had her face done despite the rumors. These changes are most likely the effects of botox, a lot of makeup and a good use of foundation.

In all honesty, we just don’t think she’s reached the age to seek a facelift…yet!

How Did Mel B Lose Weight?

Admittedly, Mel’s body had more meat after she gave birth. The changes to her weight are clearer if you compare the size and shape of her arms in these before and after photos. She looks a lot more fit these days with her firm arms, flat tummy, and overall slimmer body shape.

Rumors suggested Mel B had liposuction and tummy tuck to get rid of the body fat but it’s no secret this Spice Girl is a fitness buff and has released exercise videos. Yes, she is a fighter so we highly doubt she needed plastic surgery in the weight loss department.

Mel B’s Transformation

The UK born singer was an active teen who loved dancing and performing. She’s gifted with a flexible body and she can do a mean split or follow a complicated choreography with ease. She became a dancer in high school and landed her first job with a dance group.

Year 1994

Mel B became part of the world famous girl band Spice Girls. She was nicknamed Scary Spice along with Sporty (Mel C), Posh (Victoria Beckham), Geri Halliwell and Baby Spice (Emma Bunton). The sexy celebrity had a slim waistline then and her chest size was sufficient for her body shape.

Year 1997

With the Spice Girls’ skyrocketing, Mel B and the girls were always splattered in the headlines. This photo of Scary Spice performing while wearing a leopard top became her trademark. But this busty image also sparked rumors of breast implants because it seemed her cup size grew and her cleavage got deeper.

Year 2000

As the Spice Girls unofficially split up, Mel B tried to launch her solo career. She looks super pretty in this photo with just as a speck of blush on her high cheekbones and subtle eyeshadows. The singer revealed she had laser surgery around this time to correct a problem in her cornea but it left her almost blind in one eye.

Year 2005

Now a 30 year old mom, Mel B still looks fresh and young with her curly hair. Her smile reveals a set of uneven teeth, suggesting that she didn’t have veneers or braces before. But she definitely had a teeth whitening procedure. This smile makes her sparkle.

Year 2010

At 35 years of age, Mel B, photographed here on an exercise bike, became the host for a weight loss reality TV show in the UK. She also launched her own fitness video game on PC. Aging has slowed down her metabolism and for a while, she had more body weight around her thighs and hips.

Year 2016

A fit and firm Mel B walked the red carpet for the opening of a new season of “The X Factor” in the UK. She looked great in hot leather pants, which hugged her butt so well. Fans wondered if Mel B’s bum shape is natural or if she got help from a plastic surgeon. We dare say it could be due to her fitness routine.

Year 2018

Mel B rocked a short hairstyle while showing up at a red carpet for an NBC Universal City event. Her eye makeup and sleek eyelashes made her look different. There are hints that she might’ve gotten facial fillers to plump up her cheeks and did she get eyebrow tattoo?

Did Mel B mention anything about plastic surgery?

Speaking to a UK Newspaper The Sun, Mel B admits she have gotten cosmetic enhancements but her procedures are mostly non-surgical which included facial rejuvenation and radio frequency treatments.

I believe in being the best version of yourself and I’m a great believer of looking and keeping your natural beauty.

She was apparently very happy with Dr. Nyla Raja’s work.

I love the fact that you don’t have to take drastic scary procedures and go under the knife. It’s important we start talking about it more so more people know about the safer and more natural options out there.

Mel B has been speculated to have undergone many plastic surgeries over the years. People have endlessly talked about the alleged implants on her boobs and the augmentations on her hot body as much as her weight fluctuated.

We believe, however, that Mel B’s breasts are real and her body changes are due to her workout routine and diet plans. In fact, she became an endorser of Jenny Craig, the popular weight loss treatment company. At that time, she needed to lose the pregnancy weight and keep her body slim and fit like before.

In terms of her face, we haven’t been able to spot any signs of eye surgery, nose job or lip fillers. She has only confessed to getting non-surgical procedures to enhance her appearance. While she didn’t go into full details, we think she probably gets botox regularly, but not a facelift as some have claimed.

Regardless, she is still one of the hottest celebrities around. This amazing woman has gone through a lot, both in her career and her personal life. She has remained tough and steadfast through everything. But then…she is the gorgeous and fearless Scary Spice after all.
