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, thanks to her gorgeous face and sizzling hot body.

Like most successful celebs though, there are gossips and rumors speculating that the Barbadian star has had plastic surgery to look this good!

From breast implants, nose job to forehead surgery, there have been countless reports suggesting that the singer-songwriter had gone under the knife to achieve her flawless appearance. Some fans even suggested that the only reason why Rihanna’s eyes look so beautiful is because she has undergone an laser eye color change procedure.

So the big question here is – Has Rihanna ever had any “WORK” done?

Let’s find out!

Before & After Photos

To find out the answers, we have gone through numerous photos before and after Rihanna became a superstar. Here’s what we have found:

Did Rihanna get a boob job?

Did Rihanna get a boob job?

Many people have been wondering if the Barbados born beauty underwent a breast augmentation to increase her bra size. This came after photos emerged showing an obvious difference to the size of her boobs.

Some suggested that Rihanna has simply gained weight and there were speculations that she has become pregnant too. However, if the enlargement of her breasts didn’t come from fat or hormone changes, there is a good chance that Rihanna has gotten breast implants as the extra bust volume is quite obvious.

What do you think?

Has Rihanna had a nose job?

Has Rihanna had a nose job?

Even though Rihanna is not an African American, she had a rather large and wide nose similar to many black or dark skin people. If you look at her “Before” photo, her nose shape was bulkier and her nasal bridge was actually quite flat.

Compare that with the “After” photo, you can clearly see that her nose bridge is now more refined and narrowed. This extends to the tip as well as both sides of the wings.

Now, whether this is a nose job or simply makeup, we’ll let you call the shots.

Did she have a 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 this at a young age. There has also been some noises suggesting that Rihanna had a forehead reduction, 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

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 looks like some hair are growing back around that receding hairline. This could be an indication that she has undergone some type of hairline treatment like a hair transplant procedure.

With the amount of money she makes, she can easily afford it.

Did Rihanna have an eye color change surgery?

Rihanna's Eye Color

One of the most gorgeous facial features of Rihanna has to be her eyes. It’s not often you see black people with light colored eyes and Rihanna is one of them.

That’s why many people think she’s had an eye color change procedure, but the truth is, those are her real eye colors. She has naturally green hazel eyes that almost seems light blue at times.

Even though at times, she may wear color contact lenses to achieve certain looks (like dark brown), but that is just to achieve a certain style.


Rihanna: Then and Now

Let’s see how the singer have changed throughout the years. Her transformation will surely be interesting.

Early Days

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 from a young age, so there are no signs of facial surgeries like cheekbone and jawline contouring procedures. Rihanna also has that same large forehead and her chin looks the same as it is today. This tells me that the singer has never had any reshaping or chin implants.

Year 2005

This was the year Rihanna made her debut album, Music of the Sun. At just 17 years of age, you can see that she still has baby fat on her face. Her nose looks visibly wider so perhaps this is the reason why people said she’s got a nose job after all.

Year 2007

Rihanna 2007 - She won the celebrity leg of goddess!

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.

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 suggesting that she had her legs insured for $1 million.

Year 2009

Rihanna attends the 2009 Grammy with short updo hairstyle at the Beverly Hilton hotel. She has one of prettiest lip shape for a female artist. Not too thick 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. Now whether she required cosmetic procedures to correct her face after that horrific incident, we’re not too sure.

Year 2012

This was the year Rihanna released her hit single “Diamonds” and topped the chart in over 20 countries. Again, there is no way she’s gotten breast implants here and even the boob tattoo (under, center or side) that she is so famous for was nowhere to be found, not even in this black deep V dress.

Year 2015

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 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 tone looks so smooth and radiant. Given that the singer is only 27 years old, botox injections or a surgical facelift wouldn’t even be in the equation.

Year 2018

Rihanna 2018

I don’t know what happened here, Rihanna seem to be embracing her ‘plus size’ body while performing at the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City. Looking at her stomach, you really can’t blame the media and fans from speculating that she’s pregnant.

Year 2021

While Rihanna’s body has not gone back to its glory (skinny) days, I think she looks amazing and very healthy, too.

It doesn’t look like she had liposuction either and have most likely have achieved this great body through exercise and dieting.


What did Rihanna 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?

From the sound of it, it doesn’t look like RiRi minds what her body looks like, which kind of matches her personality to be honest. Good on her!

After going through all the photos of Rihanna, one thing we know for sure is that her body has become larger. Since her boob size has increased around the same period as her weight, it is 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 areas appear natural. Her teeth also looks great and it’s very unlikely that she’s had any dental work done. However, she may have done something to stop her hair loss.
