Though a whisper of the actress’ rumored Megan Fox plastic surgery has been around for a while, she’s been quietly keeping out of the spotlight, focusing instead on her husband and young children.
Since then Fox has appeared in films like the first two movies of the Transformers trilogy, in addition to the horror flick Jennifer’s Body.
She skyrocketed to prominence almost overnight, and as a result people have been looking very carefully at what Fox does and doesn’t do. As the fan fame and fortune has gone to Fox’s head, she has also become a plastic surgery celebrity at age 25.
Of course, unlike the Rose McGowan plastic surgery rumors which have at least a hint of confirmation, there doesn’t seem to be much backing up these speculations about Fox.
Megan Fox: Bad Plastic Surgery?
According to the celebrity plastic surgery watchers, Fox has undergone some bad plastic surgery.
Bad in this case meaning obvious, though it isn’t so obvious that there isn’t a lot of latitude for debate on the subject.
As is the case with Halle Berry plastic surgery rumors, Fox has denied that she’s had any sort of cosmetic procedures done on herself and that her good looks and body are the same as she was born with.
Of course it is expected in Hollywood for celebrities to deny any plastic surgery, especially plastic surgery gone wrong, so the assumption is often guilty till proven innocent. But just what is Fox supposed to have had done, exactly?
Many of the rumors start out with the gateway drug of plastic surgery, Botox injections (see Nicole Kidman and plastic surgery).
These injections smooth out the face by putting a small amount of neurotixin into the person’s body that will make the muscles let go of their shape and thus eliminate wrinkles.
Beyond that accusations raises the stakes, claiming that Fox has gotten breast implants, a rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a nice job), and that her lips and face have been filled artificially using materials like Restylene.
Megan Denies Botox on Facebook
And just what has Fox had to say to all this? She has denied and denounced the rumors, but in a display of a celebrity throwing back at least one of
the accusations she created a photo series on her Facebook page entitled “Things You Can’t Do With Your Face When You Have Botox.”
This photo series showed Fox making a number of facial expressions that lead to a wrinkled forehead and raised eyebrows, things that are hard to do once the Botox injections really settle into your system.
So while a series of photographs may have debunked one accusation, just what do various celebrity photographs say about the other plastic surgery rumors flying around regarding Megan Fox and her possible visits to a plastic surgeon?
Megan Fox’ Surgeries: What The Surgeons Say?
Various pictures taken by the paparazzi have showcased Megan Fox in all states of dress and undress, and it’s these pictures that have been used to look for the marks and remains of plastic surgery.
However, even the professionals are stumped by some of the accusations and how they’re not lining up with the pictures in question.
For instance, Make Me Heal asked plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia whether or not in his professional opinion Fox had undergone breast enhancement surgery.
Di Saia was confounded, since if Megan Fox did have breast enhancement done she kept the augmentation small and made it seem more natural with her lithe form.
Dr. Anthony Youn, another plastic surgeon who like Di Saia has not actually worked with Fox at any point, believes that the high riding, perky nature of Fox’s breasts is a giveaway for surgical enhancement, though that could just as easily be because Fox is still in her 30s.
Moving on to the other surgical rumors, Dr. J Walden says that it is possible, even very likely, that Megan Fox underwent a rhinoplasty procedure to refine and shape her nose.
Walden also remarked that Fox might use fillers in her lips to give her the signature pout that has made her so easily identifiable.
Other accusations about Fox’s look that the doctors interviewed by Make Me Heal agreed were likely included dermabrasion and skin peels, and though they said Botox was a possibility it’s clear that Fox did something to show that she was most definitely not undergoing that particular procedure.
Is There Any Real ‘Evidence’?
So in the end, what do we really have to go on here?
Fan speculation about Megan Fox and the procedures that she has or hasn’t had is driven primarily by the photographs of her on set or on red carpet events, with a dash of the pictures taken in unguarded moments by the paparazzi.
However it is important to note that most of these photos are taken when Megan Fox has been decked out for an event or a scene, and the Hollywood magic of cosmetic artists, talented fashion designers and teams of professionals have been called on to make her look even more stunning than she might normally.
Given that, without any sort of visible scarring on her body it’s going to be very hard indeed to determine whether Megan Fox’s looks came out of a makeup studio or from under a plastic surgeon’s knife.
Despite all of this logic though, and despite the unsure statements of professional surgeons as well as Fox’s own denials that she’s undergone any plastic surgery procedures at all, the rumors are still being churned out and circulated through a combination of celebrity gossip and fan speculations.
In the end though there is not any hard evidence and unless the actress and model decides to reverse her stand all you really have is a lot of Megan Fox plastic surgery gossip.
Ever since her sexually intoxicating break through role in Transformers people have been asking whether or not uber hottie Megan Fox has had and plastic surgery performed. Tabloids and bloggers have speculated on everything from a nose job to boob job to lip injections to cheek filler, but through it all Fox’s rep adamantly denies that she has had ANY enhancements done.
Being the diligent journalist that I am I thought I might take on this important question and see what evidence I could find (if any) of perceptible alterations in Megan’s face or breastial area. The conclusion? There’s no doubt Megan’s lips can get a little puffier nowadays than they used to be, but since that isn’t really permanent and relatively easy to see by just googling “Megan Fox” I’m going to skip it here.
As far as a nose job goes, the best side-by-side evidence I could find is in the photo above. I think it is pretty clear that something is different between those two Fox schnozes – it looks as though she had the tip shaved and the bump in the bridge smoothen out. (With these two images I just don’t see how you can debate whether or not she’s had plastic surgery done to her nose, but feel free to disagree in the comments below!)
Cheek filler was a no go. I couldn’t see it anyway. Perhaps that’s because I have a poor vision eye, I don’t know.
One thing I do have a trained eye for are breasts! I’m sure anyone who’s a Megan Fox fan remembers when the faux topless photos of Megan surfaced from the set of Jennifer’s Body in May of 2008 showing Megan dripping wet in nothing but a couple flesh-colored nipple pasties. Here’s one of those images (I added an extra layer of censorship just to be safe) paired next to Megan’s infamous wet dress scene from How To Lose Friends And Alienate People from the summer of 2007:
I don’t know about you, but I just can’t see how those Megan mounds on the right could possibly be tucked under that flimsy wet top on the left! Plus, it would seem to make sense that Megan would have an enhancement done prior to making Jennifer’s Body because she was the central character in the movie and it required nude scenes.
Unlike her nose, I’m willing to concede that it’s possible Megan hasn’t had a boob job. But, I’m still feeling pretty confident that she has! That being said, here’s a photo of Megan and David Gallagher at a Lakers game in 2004 that would seem to suggest Megan has had a lot going on upstairs for some time, but I’m going to chalk it up to Megan’s amazing ability to squish mountains out of a mole hills. (Plus, she looks a bit heavier all around)
