Nicki Minaj is famous for her ever-changing appearance, which is more than usually cartoonish. While she’s most noted for her daunting derriere, long time fans have noted that it’s not just her body that has been augmented over the years, it also looks like her face has undergone some plastic surgery as well.
29-year old Nicki Minaj favors tight ensembles and crazy wigs with eccentric makeup choices. Looking beneath the layers, it seems that Nicki has also used plastic surgery to change her appearance over the years, to help with her various “alter egos” (See Make Me Heal’s story on Nicki Minaj’s plastic surgery).
In addition to some form of buttocks augmentation and breast implants, Nicki has also likely undergone a nose job as well as cheek augmentation using fillers or fat.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Westreich says, ” Unquestionably she had a rhinoplasty. The tip of her nose is significantly smaller and the nostrils are narrowed. No amount of filler or botox, makeup or lighting could possibly create that change. Unfortunately, it looks like she had a certain type of tip procedure that may significantly narrow over time and even twist off midline. Hope it continues to settle well.”
“I also think that she either had a cheek augmentation with fillers and/or a procedure called a buccal fat extraction to make the cheek a little flatter. There is an accentuation of her high cheek bones that suggests it.”
Although Nicki is bold in her fashion statements, she has remained suspiciously muted in her openness about plastic surgery.
