Ellen Pompeo Plastic Surgery Before & After

Short Bio

Before she got into acting to win several awards including a Golden Globe nomination and the hearts of her million fans, Ellen Pompeo served cocktails in Miami for two years. The 45-year-old Pompeo, best known for her role as Meredith Grey in the popular ABC medical drama series Grey’s Anatomy, also has movies like Moonlight Mile, Old School, and Daredevil to her credit.

Despite all the adulation and success in Hollywood, the pretty American actress still doesn’t find acting to be a particularly noble way to make a living. Teaching or working for UNICEF is what Marci from Catch Me If You Can finds more noble as compared to acting.

One of the highest paid television actresses—Ellen Pompeo—was once nicknamed the pencil and stracciatella (an ice cream flavour) in her younger days by her siblings while growing up in Boston, 10 miles away from her husband Chris Ivery. However, the couple only realized it after they started dating each other in 2003.

Pompeo began her show-biz career with small independent films and commercials. The television debut came her way in the year 1996 with a guest appearance in legal police drama on NBC titled Law & Order. The first movie that the gorgeous actress worked on was Coming Soon (1999), in which she played a minor role.

The big break in Ellen Pompeo’s life came in 2002 when director Brad Silberling selected her for the lead role in Moonlight Mile opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie received positive reviews and Pompeo found the much-needed commercial success. Then came Grey’s Anatomy and Ellen Pompeo became a household name. With success Ellen Pompeo plastic surgery rumors too came along. But, are these really rumors or there’s any truth behind the Ellen Pompeo plastic surgery stories? Pompeo’s ever-changing face will reveal the truth. As they say, there’s no smoke without fire.


The most evident changes in Ellen Pompeo’s face are her fuller cheeks. Although, this can also be a result of substantial weight gain, we suspect filler injections as the cheeks are significantly different from her early days.


At 45, Pompeo has very little faint lines on her face. Although, her forehead is clear of wrinkles, her brows show some signs of aging. Ellen Pompeo doesn’t have a frozen look which can be due to partial or mild Botox.

There are also chances of Ellen Pompeo being one of the rare Hollywood cases where the actress is aging naturally and gracefully. If that’s the case, a huge round of applause from our side.
