Since she went from Fly Girl to Diva, Jennifer Lopez has sparked rumors of plastic surgery. Now she has finally spoken out on the subject.
For years, Make Me Heal has reported on 40 year old Jennifer Lopez’s various plastic surgery rumors, including a nose job, cheek implants, and a lip reduction, breast augmentation, Botox or Restylane injections as well as SmartLipo and laser treatments like Fraxel, Pixel, or Active Fx. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jennifer Lopez’s plastic surgery).
Plastic surgeon Dr Sherrell J Aston says, “Jennifer Lopez is part of a Hollywood a baby boom that we have seen over recent years. However unlike some of the other stars she has said it wasn’t easy for her to loose the pounds. In my opinion it is likely that she has undergone liposuction to help with the stubborn trouble areas. After reviewing her photographs I do no think Mrs. Lopez is unfamiliar to plastic surgery. I estimate she has had several procedures like Rhinoplasty, Blepharoplasty, and her Cheek Bones appear to be more contoured than in her earlier pictures. Each procedure has been done very tastefully and she does not appear overdone by any means. She is a very attractive talented woman and I wish her the best in her new role as a mother.”
More recently, Make Me Heal pondered whether or not Jennifer turned to plastic surgery after having her twins, Max and Emma. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Jennifer Lopez’s Mommy Makeover).
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “She looks radiant on the cover of the September issue of InStyle magazine. She had twins, Max and Emma and reportedly gained 50 lbs during her pregnancy. She does look slimmer, so diet and exercise are definitely in her regimen. Sometimes after multiple births mothers are often left with excess skin and fat around the lower abdomen. An abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) is a good solution to remove this excess skin that is hard to get by exercise and diet alone.”
Jennifer recently admitted to having trouble losing all the baby weight.
She said, “I thought the weight was going to drop off easily because I’d been in shape my whole life. But it wasn’t easy. It was an uphill struggle. I had gained about 50lbs while pregnant. The first 30lb dropped off like that and I was so pleased. Then I had to lose the last 15 or 20lbs that just didn’t want to go. I had to diet and work out a lot.”
She went on to reveal that while she considered having plastic surgery, she ultimately decided against it, although it may still be in her future plans, “I have to say I feel awesome! I feel the same way I felt when I was in my 20s.
“I don’t see myself having any plastic surgery, but I’m not at that point yet, so I don’t know. I don’t know how I’ll feel when I’m older. But I’m more of a natural person and I believe in beauty not being an outside, physical thing. Luckily, I’m used to seeing myself everywhere now that I no longer obsess about the way I look.”
New York plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “At forty years old, Jennifer Lopez, can make dramatic changes in her body just through diet and exercise. So, it is hard to tell if she has had any plastic surgery help.”
While Make Me Heal thinks it unlikely Jennifer is as natural as she claims, she certainly looks as stunning as ever.
