Did Lady Gaga spend the last few months getting some subtle plastic surgery?

A few weekends ago, I covered Lady Gaga’s first public appearance in months. She came out for the NYC Pride Parade, allowing Terry Richardson and several photo agencies to photograph her. She gave a little speech and sang a little bit, and mostly I thought she looked and sounded better than she has looked and sounded in more than a year. Gaga had oversaturated the media for too long, and everybody needed a break. While Gaga’s hip injury was probably extremely painful, it came at a convenient moment because Gaga needed to step away from the cameras for several months, and that’s just what happened. But here’s the kicker: when Gaga re-appeared at the Pride Parade, some people were really suspicious of just HOW good she looked. Some people think that Gaga has spent this time “away” getting some plastic surgery!

Lady Gaga has sparked speculation she has recently undergone a nose job, after it appeared more streamlined at a recent Gay Pride event. The 27-year-old singer took to the stage to speak at the celebration in New York and her nose appeared to be slimmer and smaller.

A spokesperson for Gaga refused to comment on the claims.

Gaga has spoken out about her looks and in a past interview claimed she would never go under the knife. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2011 after sporting prosthetic horns and claiming they were her ‘bones’ she said: ‘I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.’

She continued: ‘And how many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery?’

While Gaga’s looks might be causing controversy, her absence from social networking sites has also raised eyebrows. Lady Gaga, who has over 39million followers on Twitter, recently announced she was leaving the site – albeit for a temporary period.

The singer has changed her profile picture to the default egg and has written: ‘This interface has been shutdown temporarily. Please check back for updates.’

It’s thought her departure from Twitter is to coincide with the promotional drive for her new album ARTPOP.

Obviously, I’m including some photos of Gaga (courtesy of Terry Richardson) from the past month, and I’m also including some pics of Gaga from last October, with brown hair. I really do think that it’s mostly makeup and hair that makes the difference. I’m really looking at her nose and her eyes… and I’m not seeing any work. Her nose is the same, right? I think the biggest difference might be that Gaga is more sober and well-rested than she’s been in years, and that really does make a big difference. Plus, she has the kind of features that can look wildly different depending on her styling.

    I don’t know.
    Something in the lips area,fuller.
    But the nose and eyes…don’t know.
    She has changed hairstyle. But yes she looks a bit different.

  2. bokaki says:

    what about her teeth in the 5th photo? did she get veneers?

  3. mzizkrizten says:

    We already know she’s a hypocrite, as evidenced by her little monsters bullying tactics even as she decries bullying. She is a fascimile of a human anyway.

  4. Tapioca says:

    How dare you! Gaga never has surgery, except when she has surgery! Oh, the nose-jobs denials…

    I almost miss the heady days of her ubiquity and the try-hardedness of the hourly costume changes. THAT is how “attention-dressing” is done Miley!

  5. Ilookbetterafter says:

    I love her eyebrows!
    But they look even more raised without lines ( like when u normally raise brows u get thoes creases)
    I don’t see how that area could be so taught naturally.
    Also, subtle rhinoplasty ages ago. Looks good, still looks like her, but her old nose was bigger, took over her face, now it is still strong and has character without being ‘ugly’

  6. Seagulls says:

    I’m not very good at this game, but I think she had some subtle tweaks on her nose. Just ever so narrower and a little lower. Not by much, it’s stil “her” nose, but it looks a hair different.

  7. Rose says:

    I don’t think she’d bother with a nose job at this point, I remember her saying in interviews that she was thinking about doing it before she got famous but then didn’t. Mainly I think, in the recent photos, it’s a tight wig causing the uplift in her face?

  8. break says:

    It was so nice when she disappeared for a while. Let’s hope the album bombs and we won’t have to endure her fame2.0.

  9. Aussie girl says:

    Most def with the lip fillers. I’m going with her been sober and more fresh and rested. Isn’t there rumours that the hip op was really operation stop ga ga from using coke???

  10. lucy2 says:

    I think it might be because she’s in almost “normal” makeup, instead of some craziness. But I could also see her getting tweaked.

  11. marie says:

    I don’t see it, but I’m never good at spotting work anyway..

  12. NM9005 says:

    You need to compare pictures where she is not wearing make-up. Any good make-up artist can completely transform your face.

    It’s possible though, the lips definitely got injected, that’s for sure. The rest, I don’t know.

  13. beebee says:

    maybe she didn’t have work done… her makeup styles are just too diverse. kudos to her style team.

  14. Snowpea says:

    I cant stand Gaga.

    She is all style no substance and she strikes me as an out of control egomaniac who has totally fallen for her own hype.

    Get with the programme Gaga. You aint all that. And I think she looks awful most of the time.

  15. pretty says:

    if you compare her poker face/just dance days and now, her lips have gotten enormous over the years and of course, before she became “lady gaga”, she already had work done on her nose. but she still looks like Amy Whinehouse’s sister or something.

    with that horse mouth + crooked nose combo~

  16. Mayday says:

    I feel like maybe she had something done to her chin area a la sarah palins daughter who I dont care to google the name of (but I do remember she had something done to her chin area)

  17. anneesezz says:

    Honestly, if she did, I don’t care. It’s her body.

  18. Jag says:

    Mid-face facelift and a subtle tweaking of her nose, imo.

  19. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Her boyfriend is hot.

    That’s the only nice thing I can think to say about her.

  20. Dethammer says:

    She’s definitely had more work done. I’ll say this again- if you look at recent pics of her in a string bikini there is NO labral tear surgery scar. All people who’ve had legitimate labra tear surgery have a small linear scar on one of their upper thighs. Onto the plastic surgery- her lips are obvious and her nose is all around smaller even than in her past videos, when they contoured the hell out of it with makeup. She had eyelid surgery back in 2007/2008 and either had a browlift as well or she keeps her brows lifted with botox. She looks freshly botoxed now too.

  21. Mandy says:

    Eh, I don’t think she had anything done. Nor do I think she should. She is very striking the way she is and shouldn’t ever change a thing.

  22. kim says:

    Maybe she looks dif bc she sobered up a bit? Drank a glass of water and got some sleep? Did not miss her being away…she gets preachy and it’s put offish to lots of people. Her music is not as fun when she copies, preaches and ego trips to the world.

  23. fabgrrl says:

    Well, kudos for getting subtle, natural work done.

  24. Matty Strom says:

    Sorry, she´s kind of ugly. Agree that she looks like Amy W.

    • Annie says:

      Gaga does indeed look strikingly similar to Amy W which is why she first died her hair and eyebrows blonde….people kept getting her mixed up with Amy esp after she started getting tatted up. Personally I always thought Amy was a bit prettier though.

      As for surgery I’m not seeing it. She looks the same except for lip plumper, botox and various weight changes.

    • some bitch says:

      Amy was a beautiful woman (especially when she was healthy!) and was truly talented.

    • Hakura says:

      @Matty Strom – I’m w/some bitch on this one.

      Amy used to be beautiful, before drugs & alcohol destroyed her life. She became the poster girl for all the horrible effects substance abuse can have on your appearance. It truly looked like it was eating her from the inside out.

      The extreme weight-loss did a real number on her body, too.

  25. some bitch says:

    Never knew the hipbone was connected to the nose! This phony bitch didn’t have hip surgery, she got a ton of work done to her mug and picked DOMA/Pride Week to make her “comeback” because she’s been exploiting LGBT culture for years.

    The Fame was a fun album but Born This Way is shit. Gaga’s fans are some of the biggest bullies around, too. Their reliance on gay slurs and constant bullying of others speak volumes.

    • Annie says:

      Yeah, Born this Way sucked ass. The whole album sounded dated, and I don’t mean in any cool, retro sort of way, I mean in a borderline copyright infringementey, hmmm, where have I heard this song before? sort of way. Almost every song reminded me of a couple of other songs a little too well. The Fame, while overhyped at least was fresh and fun.

      Gaga needs to hire her some good co-writers if she wants to stay relevant.

  26. A says:

    Something has happened to her face. She’s morphing into the joker.

    This image during her speech last week says it all:


    There is NOTHING natural or genuine with her.

  27. drdoolittling says:

    Something with the shape of her face. Like her jaw and chin look different to me and her face is more heart-shaped now.

  28. heyheyhey says:

    the truth is, if you have on that much makeup and still look KINDA UGLY, that means you’re pretty ugly, at the least.

  29. krtmom64 says:

    Not an attractive woman!!!

  30. Happy21 says:

    I do agree that she looks different but make up can do wonders. HELL, look at all the photos around the web of stars without make up on. They look like shit and then when they have make up on we think they look amazing.

    I’d have to say that I do for sure think that she has had fillers in her lips (which technically isn’t surgery). Her nose doesn’t look that different.

    I’d like to hope that she stands by her plastic surgery comments and doesn’t become just another hypocrite celeb who thinks that we, the minions, are blind idiots!

  31. Nerd Alert says:

    My vote is cheek fillers and jaw sculpt. Maybe lips, too, but what I saw immediately is the lift in her cheeks. The narrower jaw could be due to weight loss, but the cheeks sure as hell aren’t!

  32. Meaghan says:

    In the first black and white pic, she reminds me a lot of Amy Winehouse. She did have a bunch of work done, for sure. I wonder if she maybe went to rehab for her break from the limelight?

  33. BusyBee says:

    Wow, from the blonde pics, I thought it was Anne Hathaway!

  34. Nicolette says:

    Not sure. If any work was done it was a great job because it’s barely noticeable. Lips look a bit plumper though.

  35. Jane says:

    To me it looks as if she has finally eaten healthy, slept more, calmed down the drinking and perhaps enjoyed life instead of working 24/7. She also went crazy with make up for a while there, so the different make up could have certainly changed her looks as well. Meh, I’m no expert, just my opinion.

  36. Maggie says:

    I dont think she’s had anything done to herself. She’s simply cleaned up her act. I find her quite pretty actually.

  37. Dorothy says:

    Nose job, fillers, microdermabrasion. For sure

  38. Itwillrain says:

    Yes I believe some posters above hit the nail on the head…her entire face shape has changed from overly long and narrow to more heart-shaped. I believe she’s had some small cheek implants or something along those lines.

  39. Lorie says:

    She was in rehab people!! That is why she looks better. Well known “secret” that is where she’s been recently. She got off coke.

  40. Kim says:

    She is full of it. She has had multiple nose jobs to slim her nose down. She has also had other work done. Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes, Cameron Diaz, the list goes on and on. All these girls have done small tweaks over the years versus 1 big nose job that would be obvious to the public. Oh and lets not forget the deviated septum excuse many of them use when called out on their nose jobs.

  41. Dethammer says:

    “well rested”= plastic surgery, fillers and botox. That’s the celeb code.

  42. amilu says:

    “Did Lady Gaga spend the last few months getting some subtle plastic surgery?”

    Without a freaking doubt!

    But I’m not sure how subtle it is if we can all tell. She’s sort of morphing into Peaches Geldof in that last photo.

  43. Kristine says:

    She is so ugly in the before and after.

  44. Learned One says:

    The one thing that seems very different to me is that her eyebrows are groomed differently…different shape/arch and not so deeply colored…

  45. KelBear04 says:

    I still can’t believe she is the same girl that was on that mtv show a while back called boiling points. No sign that she was ever going to become “Gaga”.

    • TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

      Yes that is also on Youtube; shows you what pr, marketing, professional stylists, engineers, producers, endorsers can do – but her “music” is like Mcdonald’s french fries – tasty with the first bite, but then rapidly declining in taste and savor – as another poster said, she has no substance; if i want music i’ll listen to everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Donna Summer, the Allman Brothers to Esperanza Spalding. Hopefully Artprop bombs and that will be the end of her unimpressive run.

  46. Jess says:

    She had her nose done ages ago and has been having her lips done for at least a year or more.

    It’s hard to say if she’s had more done. Wigs (which can be used to disguise tape that’s pulling her skin) and heavy, heavy make-up can do a lot.

  47. Satan says:

    All the work in the world ain’t gonna change BORING UGLY!

  48. Bella says:


  49. Rebecca says:

    It looks like her nose is different, her lips are fuller, and she may have gotten some small jaw implants.

  50. Cantina Bell says:

    From the photos it looks like she had labia reduction.
