Has Chrissy Teigen Undergone Plastic Surgery?

Short Bio

Popular model and social media darling Chrissy Teigen has been turning heads since her modeling debut in Sports Illustrated 2010’s Swimsuit edition. Ever since, Teigen has become a TV and internet personality which includes hosting Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle. However, with all her fame also comes rumors of plastic surgery that run the gamut from a boob job to lip fillers and even cheek implants.

However, has Chrissy Teigen really had any plastic surgery or is it simply the changes that the aging process combined with having children and new hair and makeup causes?


Chrissy Teigen’s career has been quite remarkable in terms of her rise in popularity. A photographer saw Chrissy working in a surf shop and started her on a career in modeling. For years, she did standard modeling work, including being a substitute model on NBC’s Deal or No Deal, when she landed the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

That changed everything as Chrissy’s popularity skyrocketed and she appeared in the next five swimsuit editions. Plus, she branched out to include popular magazines like Vogue, Glamor, Esquire, and Cosmopolitan. Chrissy’s popularity continues today as she has become a mother and branched out to other fields of entertainment. However, she has also been dogged by rumors of plastic surgery.

Rumors of Plastic Surgery

Admittedly, it’s difficult to separate the serious accusations from flights of fantasy when it comes to the rumors about cosmetic surgery. The before and after pictures of Teigen in most cases do not help and Chrissy herself does not comment on such matters.

Nose Job

This is one of the most common rumors for any model, in part because the nose does change somewhat from the teen years to adulthood. However, in looking at the before and after photos from her pre-modeling days, there has been no appreciable change in her nose.

Boob Job

Arguably the most ridiculous rumor is whether Chrissy has undergone breast augmentation. Since she has had large breasts since her teen years, such rumors make little sense. While nothing can be ruled out, it’s fair to say that this rumor has nothing to back it up.

Cheek Implants

Cheeks: Did Chrissy Teigen undergo plastic surgery to augment her cheekbones?

Here is a rumor that is understandable, if still not provable. In recent photos, Teigen’s cheeks seem high and stand out which can be interpreted as having implants or at least fillers that are used to augment the cheekbones. However, photos take of Teigen when she was in her late teens also show the same high cheekbones, it’s just that she has lost some baby fat so her cheeks stand out even more.

The only plastic surgery that Teigen has admitted to is liposuction to remove the fat in her armpits. She admitted to having it done and now is looking to repeat the procedure. Otherwise, her still remarkable face and physique can be attributed to a healthy diet and plenty of exercise which keeps her in shape. So, the rumors of plastic surgery beyond liposuction seem to be just that with no proof.
