This past weekend, Rihanna shimmied on stage as a performer at the Video Music Awards, losing out on the Moonman for best female video to Britney Spears’ triumphant return to the VMA stage. In the past, Make Me Heal has speculated as to whether or not Rihanna has had any plastic surgey. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Rihanna’s plastic surgery). Little did we know that the 20-year old diva has been doing some plastic surgery speculating of her own.
Although she says she hasn’t had any plastic surgery so far, the Barbados-born beauty doesn’t rule it out in the future especially when it comes to her breasts.
“If my breasts started to drop, I might not like that. But for the next 20-25 years I’m going to stay as natural as possible,” says Rihanna.
In addition to a possible breast augmentation and mastopexy (breast lift) in the future, Rihanna has faced rumors of having had a nose job. As the shape of Rihanna’s nose seems to change depending on the angle of the photo as well as lighting and make-up, it is hard to say that she has definitely had a rhinoplasty. Pictures of the star do show that the singer used to have a wider nose, whereas now the nose appears slimmer, more projected, and the bridge and tip are narrower now than in older pictures of Rihanna. Being that Rihanna’s look has improved dramatically in the last two years, a nose job is clearly a strong possibility.
Fast forwarding to pictures of Rihanna’s nose over the last two years, however, shows that her nose is narrow and sculpted in some recent photos, but then mysteriously returns to being wider again in photos taking around the same time. This suggests that what is at hand here is probably clever use of makeup, which apparently Rihanna is very fond of because of her having grown around a mother who was very makeup-savvy.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn also believes that Rihanna’s nose is likely the result of excellent makeup skill.
“The first ‘after’ photo looks like her nose is a bit thinner and more projecting. It is possible that lighting may be the cause, but not obvious. The second ‘after’ photo looks pretty similar to the before photos. Difficult to tell, but most likely there is no surgery there,” says Dr. Youn to Make Me Heal.
Make Me Heal did conclude that Rihanna’s skin tone has changed slightly, due to the possible use of bleaching agents and skin lightening creams or simply better make-up that brightens up her skin.
Rihanna gets a lot of criticism for her wild fashion choices, but as long as she’s young enough to pull off the bustiers and minis, Make Me Heal thinks the talented young woman should carry on pushing the fashion envelope until her breasts really do start to drop.
