Jennifer Lopez is one of those multi-hyphenate entertainers that changes her look as often as she changes her designer outfit. For years, there have been rumors that some of the changes in Jennifer’s appearance come courtesy of plastic surgery. Recently, Jennifer opened up about the rumors, saying that she has never been under the knife.
Since being a Fly Girl, Jennifer has gone around the block and back when it comes to her looks. And with each change, comes a new rumor including a possible nose job, lip reduction and breast augmentation. Then there’s the rumors of Botox, chemical peels and injectable fillers like Restylane and Juvederm.
According to Jennifer’s Twitter account, none of it is true. Jennifer replied to rumors via Twitter after British plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayham Al-Ayoubi, posted a “before and after” of Jennifer, claiming that Jennifer had clearly been undergoing plastic surgery improvements. In one photo, Jennifer is fresh-faced and natural and in the other, she looks much more glam, with mascara, lip gloss and bronzer.
Apparently makeup is truly transformative because Jennifer says that is all it takes to make her look “amazing”—the term the plastic surgeon used to describe her “after” appearance.
Jennifer posted her response to the doctor’s initial photos, saying, “@DrAyoubi Sorry Sir, but I have never had plastic surgery of any kind. #fact.”
Once Jennifer’s fans responded to Dr. Ayoubi with a lot of grief for his post, he immediately apologized to the natural beauty with two posts including one that read, “Dear @JLo I wonder if you can accept my sincere apologies about the wrong tweet which was written by my assistant without my knowledge….”
Jennifer recently revealed to Cosmopolitan for Latinas that since early in her career she has been told to make changes to her body, including her manager. She says that growing up in the Bronx, her curvy body type was nothing out of the ordinary, but once she started on television, people would tell her that she had to change.
Luckily, Jennifer had a positive body image thanks to growing up in a strong, supportive family and she was able to stand up to criticism.
While Jennifer is pretty firm on her no plastic surgery stance and has said as much in various interviews throughout the years, some people think that she may use some procedures that are non-invasive enough that she doesn’t count them as plastic surgery. Chemical peels and laser treatments that have minimal downtime and remove fine lines and wrinkles to refresh and enhance the skin may be some of Jennifer’s secrets to staying young.
The dancer/singer/actress probably also has a very good skincare regimen using skincare products that help treat and prevent signs of aging and undo damage caused by makeup. Jennifer is likely adamant about sunscreen use, even on cloudy days and even uses quality makeup that does minimal damage to her pores.
Through her years in the entertainment industry, Jennifer has clearly picked up enough tricks of the trade to keep fans guessing. Like, how did she keep that famous plunging Versace gown from revealing too much?
