Kelly Osbourne denies she’s had plastic surgery other than ‘a couple of injections’

Kelly Osbourne wants to squash rumors that she’s had any plastic surgery. Since Kelly has been on her “I’m Not a Racist” non-apology tour on her mother’s behalf, everyone is getting to see the new Kelly. Kelly lost weight and has been posting photos of her new look on Instagram. Because Kelly looks extremely different people are saying she’s gone under the knife. Kelly wants to set the record straight. In a post on Instagram, Kelly says that besides a few injections, presumably fillers and Botox, she had not had any procedures done on her face. Kelly goes on to say that she wishes people would just be happy for her and that she is always honest about her life. Below are a few more highlights via Female First:

In the video clip, which is captioned “Let’s squash these stupid rumours!!! Can’t you just be happy for me?,” she tells her fans: “Good morning everyone. I’m currently in hair and makeup right now.

“I just want to bring up a topic that you guys are all talking about because I’m always really honest and really upfront about what I’ve done to my body and who I am. And I have not done plastic surgery. I’ve never done anything to my face other than a couple of injections in my lip, in my jaw, and in my forehead. I do not lie, but thank you for the compliment.”

Speaking of her decision to have gastric sleeve surgery, she said: “I got sober. I replaced drugs and alcohol with food, my body metabolised differently. Once I got sober and I gained weight uncontrollably, it was insane.

“People kept telling me, ‘You should do the surgery.’ I was so against it … I thought the surgery was a cop-out and that it was like cheating. That couldn’t be further from the truth. What the surgery did was give me a fighting chance.”

[From Female First]

I can’t believe I am going to say this but I agree with Kelly. As much as I dislike her personality and overall disposition, she’s right, people should just be happy for her. Looking at her before and after pictures you can tell she has had some Botox and fillers, specifically in her lips, cheeks and possibly chin. Maybe a bit of injections on her nose (you can actually create an illusion of a nose job with a nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedure). Most of the changes in her face really can be chalked up to her weight loss. But again, I am just not one to constantly comment on someone’s looks in this way or speculate about their surgeries unless they are looking unwell (in which case I will ask if they are ok). Other than that, it ain’t none of my business. I also don’t like society’s preoccupation with women’s looks in general. Folks want women to look perfect then drag us for having surgeries to live up to those standards. I need society to make up its mind about what is acceptable and then I need it to mind its business. Even if Kelly have had work done, it is her right to decide when and if she wishes to discuss it. I hope to never again have to defend Kelly. I’m gonna go shower because I feel dirty.

    Weight loss don’t change your bone structure, surgery does.
    The doctor that did this work must be not be Sharon’s plastic surgeon, but then you can only work with what you have, he/she must be miffed at not getting credit for some of their best work.

    • gemcat says:

      I mean fillers can and do mimic/change bone structure in some cases. I am not saying that she has or hasn’t done more.. but CRAZY amounts of change can be accomplished with “just” filler injections

      • Me says:

        Very true— with Voluma you don’t have to get cheek and chin implants anymore—the injectables nowadays are pretty amazing.

      • ElleV says:

        Yep, this is fillers and a VERY tight pony tail – possibly some face tune / filters – but you can see in the video it’s her original face / bone structure

    • Chrissy (The Original) says:

      It looks like she had her jaw shaved down. The shape of her entire face has become more streamlined. She had a square face shape previously, just like her mom. Unrecognizable!

      • Sid says:

        I was thinking that Chrissy. I’ve seen fillers make people’s faces look narrower, as with botox in the jaw muscles for example, but I’ve never seen fillers completely change the jaw shape and size to make it smaller.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        Maybe not. I lost almost 200 lbs (I had gastric bypass 16 yrs ago, and like Kelly, I found it to be my lifesaver; the ONLY thing I could lose the weight with (after a lifetime of dieting), and I’ve kept it off since. Does take work though to keep it off!) and my face went from looking like an overblown beach ball to oval/diamondish (and my mom’s great cheekbones popped out!) lol. It does happen.

        Now, if only my nose and ears would stop “growing” with age (and gravity!!) lol

      • ElleV says:

        samesies – had a dramatic weight lost and it changed the shape of my face – gained in back, got a different face yet again
        the video doesn’t lie, she still has the same face shape

      • JennyF says:

        I have had Botox injected into my jaw bc of issues brought on by teeth grinding, and it made my whole lower jaw area much narrower.

      • h-barista says:

        If fillers could change the shape of your jaw the Willis sisters would have pursued that option.

        Kudos to them for addressing their anxiety and body dysmorphia directly.

    • Ronaldinho says:

      She’s had a brow lift and cat eye lift via threads perhaps if not scalpel
      Jaw can be slimmed via advanced botox
      Nose, jaw and cheeks can be augmented by fillers

      • Seraphina says:

        Please no more. I’m growing faint as I read these. I am vain enough to get procedures but the knowledge of they would do stops me cold in my feet.

    • Adrian says:

      Botox can slim down the masseter area. Threads can lift the eye. She probably had Ultherapy or similar procedures to tighten some parts and also Botox in the nose area. I can believe her that her transformation was due to non invasive procedures.

      • Lola says:

        It’s not only the masseter area that’s a fraction of its size and a completely different shape – it’s her ENTIRE mandible.

    • Huhwhutt says:

      The purple haired kardashian w the Pinocchio lips …how not shocking.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      well, I think she had jaw botox. You get a big jaw from constant tooth grinding. I have a fairly bulky jaw. So you inject botox into the masseter (IIRC) muscles to paralyze them. You stop grinding your teeth because the muscles atrophy, and it changes the shape of your face. Kelly used to have that broad jaw indicative of tooth grinding. So did Olivia Munn and she did the same to change her face shape.

      I reallllly want this done bc for the life of me, I can’t relax my jaw and jaw pain is an issue! Only thing holding me back is that it’s quite a commitment…you have to keep it up. Anyway, Google before and afters for masseter botox and you’ll see the transformation!

      • Sister Carrie says:

        I just had Botox for my TMJ, and if you can afford it, go for it. After twenty years of waking up with a headache and a jaw locked in place, this is the only thing that has worked for me. (Massage, ultrasound, steroids—none worked as well as Botox.). I haven’t noticed any major difference in my jaw being more narrow, though.

      • GrnieWnie says:

        @Sister Carrie omg, that’s good to know. I might go for it, then. They say the difference to the muscles in your jaw takes about 4 months to become apparent.

      • stormyshay says:

        I have TMJ and am a chronic teeth grinder to the point I have worn away the cartridge in my jaw. Those of you that had the Botox, did you go to a dentist or plastic surgeon? I really want to have it done but do not even know where to begin.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      Yeah, she had wide square jowls. Weight lose would have only made her jowls looser. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with getting plastic surgery (except when celebrities use surgery as a replacement for needed therapy), but just don’t lie about it. Lying is like saying “I think the public is stupid and blind,” which is insulting.

  2. Heylee says:

    “I also don’t like society’s preoccupation with women’s looks in general. Folks want women to look perfect then drag us for having surgeries to live up to those standards. I need society to make up its mind about what is acceptable and then I need it to mind its business.”

    THANK YOU OYA! Articles like this = why I have been a dedicated reader of this blog for over a decade.

  3. FHMom says:

    Nah, she’s had surgery.

  4. lucky says:

    Meh. I think it gets toxic when people say, “I didn’t get anything done! This is just how I look!,” because I think it sets many women up to feel shizy about how they look. I don’t think people need to talk about what they have had done, but that means saying, “I don’t want to talk about that,” rather than denying it. Do I believe she only had a ‘couple injectables,’ no. Was I even considering what she had done before she denied having it, no.

  5. Bunny says:

    Surgery, for sure, but she looks good.

  6. Eleonor says:

    I see lips injections and a nose job.

  7. Cel2495 says:

    I believe her….she had some type of weight loss surgery as per her confirmation. My aunt did the same and after the weight was shed, her face is completely different. She even has to get fillers because her face was too skinny. Err Kelly still an asshole though

    • L84Tea says:

      I’m with you. I’m one of those people that when I gain weight, it shows in my face big time. Like full on round, chubby cheeks tennis ball face. But what’s underneath are some really kickass cheekbones. And when I lose weight and am on the thinner side, my cheek bones pop out and my face structure completely changes. I did a side-by-side photo of myself once on the WW app and people couldn’t believe it was the same person. As for Kelly, she definitely had injections, but a lot of the rest looks like weight loss to me. I can’t say anything about her nose because I honestly don’t remember what it looked like before.

    • kgeo says:

      Same. My weight doesn’t fluctuate much. However, if I put on even 10 pounds, I look just kind of gross in my face. I have a big nose and thin lips and while I really like those features when my face is a little thinner, it doesn’t work as well if you can’t see my jaw line and cheek bones. I always heard that you need to choose between your ass and your face when you’re my age, but it doesn’t apply to me. Also, my ass just keeps getting bigger all by its lonesome. :/

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        LOL That was Zsa Zsa Gabor’s famous quote: “After a certain age, a woman chooses between her hips or her face. I choose my face”.

    • Sid says:

      Kelly has been thin before and still had the same fuller face shape.

  8. SarahCS says:

    She is looking a lot more like her mother but I’m unsure about how much of that is weight loss vs. other interventions.

  9. josephine says:

    I don’t care if she’s had surgery or not. But I think she’s following the Kardashian playbook of doing or saying anything for attention, so I just assume that she has no relationship with honesty. And I just can’t get past the constant need to play the victim, especially in relation to the family’s history of racism.

  10. Aitana says:

    Yes society is hard on women regarding their looks & it is demoralizing , but Kelly can’t expect 4 people to not be curious after such a dramatic change of her face.

    And yes, she’s definitely had more than a few injections, & yes, she should just deflect & say she’s not gonna talk abt it. Her reaction in this instance tells me all I need to know really. She looks like a completely different person.. this isn’t just injectables. Sorry-not sorry.

  11. Chaine says:

    She can have all the surgery and injectable in the world, it still won’t change her constant sour “who farted?” facial espression.

  12. Wiglet Watcher says:

    It’s become a fine line what gets classified as plastic surgery these days. Some people classify it as necessary vs. unnecessary and that’s up to the interpreter.

    Like lap band and then body contouring. For some it’s necessary. For others it’s elective to remove a few inches here and there to reshape for their own reasons.

    If she’s claiming she never went under the knife for vanity sake she’s got lies injected onto that face.

    And she’s a racist who defends her racist mother so I’m not happy or unhappy for her. Just stop giving her a platform to get validation and pity.

  13. AA says:

    I dislike her and her mother for being racist POS, but as a cosmetic surgery / procedure obsessive, I am gonna say this: She could be telling the truth. I think everyone who says “it must be surgery!” simply doesn’t know much about how far cosmetic injectables and non-surgical procedures have come…. If you have money and you can combine a number of procedures and you can afford top-ups and revisions, you don’t need surgery to look like that.

    And I noticed that she said “injections” and not just botox and fillers. So it is quite possible she had fat-dissolving injections too, on her chin for example (see aqualyx, kybella etc)

    Botox doesn’t only prevent wrinkles, but you can use it for eye and brow lift, and to ease the jaw muscles… Fillers you can use to sculpt to a great extend, not just for lips. People are now using them for non-surgical “nose jobs”, for jaw and cheek contouring, and even as a BBL alternative.

    And of course if you are rich you can have regular radiofrequency etc to tighten your jowls and face…

    Lastly, I have noticed that many people do not even consider threads surgery – so you could have PDO / threads, that give an instant facelift look, and still say you didn’t really have surgery…

    I love cosmetic procedures and they can do A LOT, but unfortunately they cannot fix racism and asshatery….

  14. AmyB says:

    This comment had me laughing: “I hope to never again have to defend Kelly. I’m gonna go shower because I feel dirty”. LMAO

    It is true, it IS none of our business. HOWEVER, it really does irritate me to no end when celebrities/influencers look completely different and then, deny cosmetic surgery. AKA Kylie Jenner denying she had lip fillers, but then later admits it. Either say nothing (because that is their prerogative, or no comment, whatever) or admit to it. I hate these half assed comments that “sort of” admit to something but it could be more. Someone else pointed out here, and this is a very good point – the fine line about cosmetic surgery is getting harder and harder to distinguish, with so many different procedures now. AND more than that, it gives the wrong message to younger, more impressionable women who think, OH, if I do a, b, and c) then maybe I will look like her. When in reality that person may have gone under the knife many, many times like the Kardashians!!!! That is what really infuriates me. I don’t care, I am a 52 year old woman, confidant in who I am, and willing to grow old gracefully by taking care of myself. However, I do know what it is like to grow up, and be self conscious, have body image issues and be susceptible to bullshit mixed messages that constantly come from the media.

    • MF1 says:

      It irritates me too! I don’t have a problem with plastic surgery. If I had Kelly’s bank account, I might consider a nose job myself. What annoys me is that you’re telling me that what I see with my own eyes is not true.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      What she does to her body isn’t our business. You’re right about that. She wants to make it our business. She wants us to talk about it. She could ignore easily, but chooses to engage because she has reasons for caring what faceless strangers and possibly bots type out.

      Idk how someone that puts so much of their time into social media validation can ever be truly happy. One power outage and their world crumbles.

      • AmyB says:

        @Wiglet Watcher – YES exactly this ^^^^ If she is so hell bent on denying she had cosmetic surgery, or defending her much altered appearance…like WHY? If she is truly happy with it (which I doubt, like you said, being constantly on social media, and posting is essentially looking for outside validation #sorrynotsorry) then why should she care? Or just say none of your business/no comment???? Yet, she is not doing that! She is inviting a WHOLE conversation about it, which, my gut instinct says, is not 100% truthful. That is what pisses me off. Because of the effects that will have on younger, impressionable girls. This is the stuff which can plant the seeds for eating disorders, body dysmorphia, body image issues, etc. It literally infuriates me. I struggled with anorexia for almost 15 years – I know something about this personally….I am proud to say, through much therapy and rehab, anorexia has zero to do with my life now, but I am well aware of the contributing factors. Media is not all of it, by far. My childhood dysfunction/trauma had much more to do with it, but these false narratives DO NOT HELP!!

  15. Anna says:

    Lip fillers, botox, nose AND jaw job

  16. Midge says:

    Give me a break. She had surgery. Stop gaslighting. I have two eyes.

  17. Lisbeth says:

    I saw her on Fashion Police; she’s quite willing to judge others.

  18. Penny says:

    She used to have her dads jaw line. That must have been shaved down.

  19. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Who cares? Look at her mom! Even look at her DAD! Frankly, I’m surprised she’s not sporting 1,000 piercings through 10,000 tats. She’s pretty though; looks just like her mom.

  20. Lola says:

    She got half her jaw sawed off into a completely different shape. That has zero to do with weight loss, she has had the same jaw all her life no matter what her weight was.

    It’s not good to hound women about their bodies when they don’t want to talk about it, don’t say anything about it and it’s none of our business.

    However, when they try and use their bodies to distract us from their horrible racist statements and defenses, and they are the ones who bring up their bodies in the first place, then they shouldn’t be telling obvious lies to the public, because that’s extremely dangerous for young girls and others with body image issues. If they do choose to tell obvious lies then the topic is absolutely on the table as far as I’m concerned.

    And I’m not going to be happy for someone who got half their jaw shaved off for cosmetic reasons, EVER. I think that’s incredibly sick, to do something so dangerous for cosmetic reasons. It’s sick that an entire nation has pressured their little girls into thinking they have to get that procedure or else they will be repulsive and unworthy of love or even employment. These things are so insidious.

  21. Gobo says:

    Yeah, no. Somebody took an angle grinder to her jaw.

  22. Alexandria says:

    Weight loss and buccal fat removal. I’m actually interested in that because I have a square face. The thing that’s stopping me is whether I will look older in future. I just hate taking photographs because of my square face. Celebs tend to get it because they’re on camera a lot so I can understand.

    Anyway she looks good. She’s just not a good person.

  23. lolalola3 says:

    She was so much cuter when she was curvier. Now she looks like a kartrashian. Is there only 1 look in California now? Or maybe only 1 plastic surgeon?

    • Seraphina says:

      She looks like her mother more and more. They must see same doctor. Plus, that smugness also adds to the resemblance.

    • JanetDR says:

      I honestly thought that photo was Khloe.

  24. BirdsGalore says:

    I believe her. You can definitely shape and contour a jaw line with injectables. She should have extra skin though on her neck from being heavier – maybe not enough for a lift but a laser procedure can tighten that skin.

    • Lola says:

      Injectables don’t remove 30% or more of someone’s jaw and change the bone structure from a full, rounded shape to an angular inverted triangle a fraction of the size.

  25. Nyro says:

    After seeing her live and in the flesh in the video, I believe her. She really doesn’t look that different.

  26. Cee says:

    Her jawline and lower bone structure tell a different story! Why is Botox and fillers OK in altering their faces but OH MY GOD NOT SURGERY, HOW DARE YOU!

  27. Catherine says:

    Girllllll why are all of these celebrities with completely different faces than they started with so dedicated to trying to convince us it was just an injectable or 2? If you’re ok with it who gives a f**k what anyone else says.Enjoy your new face and quit grandstanding for attention.

  28. MsIam says:

    She looks like she’s had a brow lift. Can Botox do that? I think she looks good in that “Instagram face” kind of way. She’s not really on my radar though, so whatever floats her boat I guess.

    • Jenn says:

      You can indeed lift the brows with Botox, which tends to result in a wicked-looking “Spock” brow. Personally I think it looks more like threading, which is pretty invasive compared to Botox but also more natural-looking. (Neither procedure is permanent, so her claim to being “surgery-free” would technically be true. I think she must have a wonderful cosmetic dermatologist.)

  29. Terri says:

    She now looks a lot like the few pictures I have seen of her sister.

  30. Kaykay says:

    Plastic surgery, makeup, and fillers can sometimes look very good on camera, in SOME cases. But as soon as you start moving on camera or in real life, everything looks distorted and off AF. It’s just sad that people ruin their natural faces to look good in selfies – and selfies only. I love watching movies from the 80’s and early 90’s where people had their real faces. Can this trend please die down. I’m so tired of this vanity.

  31. Turtledove says:

    Bllergh. i don’t care what people do as far as procedures. I really don’t. But I think celebs get far too precious over the languae used. At the end of the day, she is NOT recognizable, she has an entirely new face. Does it matter if scalpels were or were not used? If it WAS “just”injections or . threads or whatnot, it was enough of them to completely change her face.

    I don’t care what people do, I am just sick of them downplaying it, Her lips alone are over the top, she didn’t get a little filler, she used ALL the fillers.

    I inherited my irish side’s neck/chin, as I am aging, I am less and less happy wih it. If I had the money, I would absolutely consider surgery. And I am not famous/on tv. So I get it. But if I DID get the surgery, and looked very different, I wouldn’t be saying “I bought new contour makeup” or “I just lost some weight”. I’d say “I got my neck done.” Why lie??????????????????????

  32. Margo says:

    She seems like an okay person, but honestly, this ‘I am so honest, so real’ is just pure B.S. Maybe she thinks it matters to people, but the fact is, it does not. Who gives a rats a** if she has botox or fillers? One thing is for sure – she is her mother’s daughter – but she looks more like her mother’s sister, IMO.

  33. Miasys says:

    She’s trying so hard to be Angelina Jolie.
    She may be an awful person but I can’t help but feel badly for someone who is so clearly miserable in her own skin.

  34. House of No says:

    Ah! The whole “Are you going to believe me or your eyes?” approach to obvious surgery. Yeah. It never works. Stop using it.

  35. SurvivalIsTheGame says:

    The only procedure she needs isn’t available and that’s a personality transplant. I don’t even understand why she has any relevance whatsoever, except for the fact that her and her trifling mother have made trollling into the family business.

  36. Blaine says:

    She lies so hard. She’s got those upturned eyes like all the models. It’s surgery 100%.
    I wish people would stop gaslighting us and own up to it OR just don’t say anything. 😒

  37. Briamatia says:

    Just curious as to why Celebs want to hide behind surgery? Like come out with it, if you did it, really who cares? We know what the industry demands of women (forever young, no signs of aging, etc.) But these constant defenses put up by people who OBVIOUSLY went under the knife is interesting to me. Attention seeking behavior anyone?

  38. Meg says:

    ‘I’m always really honest and really upfront about what I’ve done to my body’
    Didnt she neglect to say she got some type of weight loss surgery at first and was just saying her body change was due to the very little amount of food she ate and how often she worked out, which sounded excessive, then was called out on it afterwards only to then admit weight loss surgery?
    So no shes not ‘always upfront ‘. ah revisionist history.

  39. KT says:

    Uh huh. As someone who lost a lot of weight at one point, there’s simply no way she lost enough weight to change the shape of her face that much and not end up with loose skin around the jowls.

    Skin that tight means work’s been done.

    • caitlin says:

      Good point about loose skin. I wonder about the rest of her body (e.g. legs) and the implications of such drastic weight loss. Can’t tell from her IG as photos seem to be upper body only. Maybe she has good skin elasticity?

  40. Susie says:

    Her lies perpetuate a lot of harm onto the public and she does it for cash. A lot of people especially those not on the internet don’t realize how wide spread plastic surgery. I mean people legit think it’s weight loss and a bit of filler which her jaw line and upturned eyes make it clear it’s not. Also interesting how filler which dissolves is ok to admit to but permanent surgery is still bad. People know about fillers and bbls but I don’t think people get just how much of the pics we see are manipulated either thru a docs office or photoshop. Even the videos are now photoshop. It really messes with people’s head when celebs refuse to admit the truth and claim it’s all water exercise and a few fillers. And tbh I remember it genuinely helping when I saw some unphotoshopped photos. I’m the type of person who has never owned a scale and I don’t wear makeup cuz I’m lazy and untalented and I fine with that but the IG look was even getting to me and creating all these insecurities I never had. Even when you know the truth constantly seeing these photos make you feel ugly and insecure. I really feel bad for gen z cuz they are growing up in an era where a manipulated look is so prevalent and almost mandatory AND calling it out gets you called mean. I don’t believe in speculating on plastic surgery for non celebs that’s not my business. But for people making money off their look given to them by plastic surgery and photoshop I need them to be honest or I believe others being honest for them is fair game. In what world should a person be left alone to make money off a lie that creates harm.

  41. LokiMa says:

    She went full Khloe – literally the exact same new face.

  42. Rnot says:

    I hate that I like that ridiculous hair.

  43. Ornamental says:

    That’s right Kelly!
    At least we can all agree – that you’ve paid thousands of dollars for procedures to “enhance” your face. And this makes you extraordinarily honest – and relatable!

  44. Valerie says:

    Mmm, no, not gonna be happy for a racist and xenophobe. I think she has had work done, but look at who her mother is. Is it really a surprise?

  45. HME says:

    It annoys me no end when celebs who have DRASTICALLY altered their appearance get all annoyed that people have noticed. Kelly is almost unrecognizable here so yeah people have noticed and are gonna have questions.

    And while its true its non of our business what she’s done I find it really disingenuous of her to claim this is the result of just “a couple” of injections. That kind of claim only furthers unrealistic beauty standards. There are people who are going to believe that if they get “a couple” of injections too they can look like this. And they won’t because whatever the hell she’s done to her face its way more than just “a couple” of injections. (also…why do so many people think that injections don’t count as “doing something” to their faces??? How is that not doing something? No its not surgery but its still a medical procedure that alters your appearance)
