Rihanna is one of the hottest and most captivating singers in America. Despite her amazing voice, she’s been the “Go To” trend symbol for many females, all thanks to her gorgeous face and sizzling hot body.
Like most successful celebs though, this led to many gossips and rumors, with some speculating that the Barbadian star has had plastic surgeries to look so damn good!
From breast implants, nose job to forehead surgery, there’s been countless reports suggesting that the singer-songwriter had gone under the knife to achieve her flawless looks. Some fans even suggested that the only reason why Rihanna’s eyes look so beautiful is that she’s undergone a laser eye color change surgery.
Whether her eyes, nose, and boobs are fake or not, we’re not 100%…just yet.
But one thing we know for sure is that whenever you hear her name, you just can’t help but start humming phrases from her hit songs, ‘Umbrella’, ‘Diamonds’, ‘Stay’, to the more recent ‘Work’ work work work work…
Which leads us to this question….has Rihanna ever had “WORK” done from a cosmetic surgeon?
Let’s find out!
Before & After Photos
To determine whether Rihanna had sought plastic surgery to enhance her face and body features, we’ve gone through numerous photos before and after she became a superstar. Here’s what we found:
Did Rihanna Get A Boob Job?
Many people have been wondering whether the Barbados born beauty underwent a breast augmentation surgery to increase her bra size. This came after photos emerged showing an obvious difference to the size of her boobs.
Although some may argue that she’s simply gained weight here and there were speculations that she might’ve become pregnant too. But if the enlargement of her breasts didn’t come from accumulated fat nor breast milk, then there is a good chance that Rihanna has gotten a boob job to gain those extra bust volume.
Has Rihanna Had A Nose Job?
Even though Rihanna is not an African American, but she does have a rather large and wide nose just like many ebonies or dark skin people who are born in the islands of the Caribbeans. If you look at her “Before” photo, her nose shape was bulky and her nasal bridge was quite flat.
Now compare that with the “After” photo, you can clearly see that her nose bridge is much more refined and narrowed. This extends to the tip of her nose as well as both sides of the ala. So could this be the evidence we need to prove that Rihanna has had a nose job? We’ll let you call the shots…
Did She Have Forehead Reduction Surgery?
We all know that Rihanna has a big forehead, it’s almost like she’s got implants in there. However, we found out that she’s had it ever since she was young. There’s also been some noise suggesting that she’s had a forehead reduction during some stage in her career, but we haven’t found any evidence to support those claims.
So NO forehead surgery as far as we’re concerned.
What About Her Hairline?
Rihanna’s hairline has been the center of attention for a number of years. Sometimes, it appears as though she was losing hair as indicated by the thinning patches on the BEFORE picture above.
Now if you look at the AFTER pic, it seems like she’s got some hair growing back around that receding hairline. So this could be an indication that she’s gone through some type of hairline surgery. Maybe even a hair transplant procedure to rejuvenate her hair regrowth cells around that area. What do you think?
Does Rihanna Have Eye Color Surgery?
One of the most mesmerizing facial features of Rihanna has to be her eyes. That’s because it’s not often that you’ll see black people with light colored eyes (though very possible). She has these beautiful green hazel eyes that at times almost seems light blue.
That’s why many people think she’s had an eye color surgery to change her natural eye color. But the truth is, those are her true eyes…not fake! Even though at times, she may have worn color contact lenses to achieve certain looks (like dark brown), but if you want to know her original eye color, well…you’ve been looking at them!
Rihanna’s Beauty Transformation
Let’s see how Rihanna’s face and body have changed throughout the years. This will tell us whether or not she’s had help from cosmetic surgery in other areas that we may have missed.
Here’s a rare photo of Rihanna in her teenage years when she was just an innocent girl living in Barbados, a small country in the Caribbeans. Her face shape has remained identical so there have been no signs of facial surgeries such as cheekbone and jawline contouring procedures. She’s got that same large forehead and her chin is also similar to now, so no reshaping or chin implants happening there.
This was the year Rihanna made her debut album, Music of the Sun. At just 17 years of age, you see that she still had baby fat on her face. Her nose was visibly wider so perhaps there’s a reason why people said she’s got a nose job after all.
2007 was a breakthrough year for Rihanna in which her lead single, “Umbrella”, topped the music chart in 13 countries worldwide. She was also named the ‘Celebrity Leg of Goddess’ by Venus Breeze.
Here she was attending the Gillette event showing off her hot legs at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. Looking at Rihanna’s legs, you can see why she fully deserved the title and we can assure you it had nothing to do with plastic surgery. There were also reports about her getting her legs insured for $1 million.
Rihanna attends the 2009 Grammy with short updo hairstyle at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California. She has one of prettiest lip shape for a female artist. Not too thick and plump like so many that we’ve seen with lip injections or fillers, but not too thin either. Just the perfect shape with a beautiful cupid’s bow that compliments her V-shaped chin.
Unfortunately, it was reported that Chris Brown beat Rihanna in the same year. She ended up with busted lips and swollen eyes after the beating, but whether she required cosmetic procedures to correct her face, we’re not too sure.
Here the Barbadian-American singer arrives at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas with medium wavy red hair. You can see that her chest area was rather flat so no signs of boob job here.
This was the year Rihanna released her hit single “Diamonds” and topped the chart in over 20 countries. Again, there’s no way she’s gotten breast implants here and even the boob tattoo (under, center or side) that she’s so famous for was nowhere to be found, not even in this black deep V dress.
After experiencing with curly blondes, Rihanna was back with a more natural short black hairstyle. Here she is attending the American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. She also brought a few new friends with her including the tattoos on her hands, between her breasts and on the side as well.
This was perhaps the year where she had the best body shape. Not fat and not too skinny. Her waistline was in proportion with her belly, so definitely no need for tummy tuck procedures.
If Rihanna had done a rhinoplasty, then we guess it must have been somewhere between the year 2013 to 2014. You can see that her nose was visibly sharper here, particularly around the bridge and nose tip areas. Regardless, she has beautiful eyes to compliment it with stunning double eyelids and possibly an eyebrow tattoo as well.
One more thing, her cup size appears to be larger than it was in previous years. Now it may have been the effect of a push-up bra, or it could be what many have been speculating….breast implants!
Here the singer steps onto the red carpet for the 2015 Grammy Awards at the Staple Center in LA. We really love this pink princess look where she is letting her natural skin color tone do the talking. Her cheeks look absolutely gorgeous, it’s almost like she had no makeup on!
We are curious as to what skincare product she uses because her skin looks so smooth and radiant. Given that she’s only 27 years old, it’ll be a while before we hear any rumors about her getting Botox injections or a surgical facelift.
Here we see Rihanna performing at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden. Wearing a high leather boot, her thick legs were nowhere to hide. But given that the fat on her thighs blends with her buttocks so naturally, so we doubt she’s ever had butt implants nor does she need a butt lift.
Did Rihanna gain weight? Oh DUH! Her waist had literally gone up 2 sizes, but so did her boobs!
After she attended the movie premiere of “Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets” in Paris, there was plenty of noise suggesting that the Ocean’s 8 star had gotten breast augmentation, as you can see why from looking at her cleavage. But then….it could simply be the gained weight that’s contributing to her increased bust size. Hmmm…
Here we’ve got the ‘plus size’ star performing at the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City. The amount of weight Rihanna has put on is astonishing. From looking at her stomach, you really can’t blame the media and fans from speculating that she’s pregnant.
She’s literally lost the cheekbones on her face, gained a double chin and a new pair of fat legs. To her credit, she is still the confident Rihanna that we all know, singing and dancing in that sexy pink dress. Based on her publicized personality, it’s unlikely she’s going to change for anyone, not even for the industry.

What Does Rihanna Have To Say About Plastic Surgery?
There was an unconfirmed report in 2014 by OK Magazine about Rihanna wanting to get a breast lift. Unfortunately, we can no longer access the same article, but if this was true we can at least guess that the singer wasn’t exactly thrilled with her natural breast shape, or that she was experiencing sagginess.
In 2016, Rihanna’s facialist spoke with Coveteur and hinted that her clients preferred her Resculpting Facial as an alternative to fillers, botox and plastic surgery.
I start with microdermabrasion, crystal-free, works with a diamond tip, followed by my proprietary Resculptor machine to firm around the jawline and eyes for an immediate lift, it’s very effective and relaxing.
Clients like Diane von Furstenberg, who I have had the pleasure to work with for two decades, come in weekly for a facial. I’ve also been lucky to work with huge influencers like Rihanna and Oprah Winfrey, as well as heads of states.
In 2017, Rihanna spoke with The Cut and during the interview, she admitted that she has a fluctuating body type while giving a few tips on how to get dressed.
It’s like…What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?
We know she’s definitely gotten bigger in 2018 so it’ll interesting to see where she’ll go from here. Will she go the exercise and diet route, or seek liposuction from a plastic surgeon to get rid of all that body fat?
After going through all the photos of Rihanna up to the year 2018, one thing we know for sure is that her body has become larger. Since her boob size had increased roughly around the same period when she put on the weight, it’s difficult to confirm whether it’s the result of a boob job, as women’s breasts do change with their body mass.
In terms of her facial features, it appears as though she may have gotten a subtle nose job. Other than that, her forehead, eyes, and mouth appear natural. Her teeth also look great when she smiles so it’s very unlikely that she’s got any dental cosmetic work done. However, she may have done something to stop her hair loss.
There has been no other evidence found in regards to cosmetic surgery on her neck, arms, legs, tummy or butt.
