Did Yoona Go Under The Knife To Get Into SNSD?

By PSP Team


Updated on

Yoona is a popular singer and actress in South Korea.

Thanks to her debut with the SNSD (Girls Generation) group back in 2007, her fame has risen dramatically.

Ever since joining the Korean girls group, Im Yoona Ah has become one of the best selling music and TV artists in the country.

While her voice is no doubt mesmerizing, her beautiful face and body has come under constant scrutiny.

To be precise, some fans believe she’s had plastic surgery.

Before & After Photos

To find out the truth, let’s take a look at how Yoona’s appearance have evolved throughout the years.

Early Days

This was back in 2002 when Yoona was 12 years old. She went for an open casting audition held by SM Entertainment. You can definitely see shadows of the star.

Yoona’s eyes seems to look bigger in her teens.

But since she was too young to get an eyelid surgery, so it must have been the makeup.

Did you notice change on her chin?

Yoona might have gone through a chin reduction procedure to make her chin look more pointy.

Let’s compare the 2 photos again…

Yoona jawline and chin comparison

The tip of her chin looks different and her side jaw bone seems to be shaved off too.

Something is suspicious here.

Year 2009

With so much training, Yoona is looking skinny but fit. At least she won’t have to worry about the weight side of things.

Year 2010

There is something pure and innocent about the way she looks. Maybe it’s the dimples on her cheeks when she smiles or that little curve contouring on her forehead.

Year 2012

Okay, let’s forget Yoona’s possible boob job here and focus on her cheeks.

There is something fishy going on.

If I remembered correctly, Yoona’s cheek bones weren’t as full and round.

Let’s compare this with her previous year.

Yoona face cheeks before and after

See the difference?

Her cheek bones on the ‘before’ photo was almost flat while the ‘after’ photo looks plumped.

It could be cheek implants or botox. What do you think?

Year 2013

Up until now, I still haven’t seen any evidence of a nose job.

So I guess it’s safe to say that Yoona’s nose is all real.

Year 2015

Back to Yoona’s body.

It think we might be seeing the top outline of Yoona’s breast implants here.

I’m not sure but the way her boobs are pushing up against her chest just looks a bit unnatural.

Year 2017

While Yoona is more mature at the age of 27, she still looks adorable from every angle.

Just look how thin her lips are. I guess we can scrub lip injection off our list.

Year 2021

Fast forward a couple of years, the South Korean star is looking as gorgeous as ever.

By the way, she’s 31 years old.

Well, this was interesting.

There were some signs suggesting that Yoona might have gotten cosmetic surgery back in 2012. I’m mainly talking about her chin here.

Other than that, I couldn’t find anything else. She definitely don’t have any issues in the anti-aging department. Not yet anyway.
