Lady Gaga is well known for her appearance, which ranges from beyond avant-garde style choices to prosthetics glued on to her body. Still with all her playing with the idea of body modifications, Lady Gaga insists that she’s never been under the knife for plastic surgery.
25-year old pop performer Lady Gaga opened up her views on plastic surgery, despite rumors of having had rhinoplasty and liposuction and breast augmentation in the past (See Make Me Heal’s story on Lady Gaga’s plastic surgery).
In the May issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed, “I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have.”
“I think promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.”
“And how many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery?”
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia writes, “Lady Gaga plays the media like a violin so her motivations are not always easy to understand. Images of her before her fame are hard to come by and she modifies her appearance constantly via numerous elaborate outfits. In few words, that makes her hard to figure on the question of plastic surgery. How she justifies significant modification via non surgical means and denounces anything surgical is kinda arbitrary as well.”
“On her vow to never have plastic surgery, she is only 25. Give her time.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, “So strange. I would bet on makeup, since body modification like this (implanting metal rods), especially if performed by a non-plastic surgeon, is extremely painful and fraught with complications. Her music is pretty darn catchy though!”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It looks like Lady Gaga may not have been born that way. She appears to have had a very conservative Rhinoplasty and clearly uses Botox to give her that perfectly smooth forehead.”
Lady Gaga certainly knows how to create controversy, both with her songs and public statements, but mostly with her outlandish appearances.
