Selena Gomez & Plastic Surgery: Experts Claim She Had Work Done
Selena Gomez undergoing plastic surgery has been a prominent topic on social media. While the speculation garnered mixed responses, with some users body-shaming the actress and her fans defending her, certified experts have also weighed in on the matter.
Selena Gomez has been upfront about the visible changes her body displayed resulting from life-long health issues. While people’s comments on social media about her body have been hurtful, she has embraced body positivity and is no longer apologetic about her body image.
The long-time actress recently responded to the online opinions of her looks and clarified her stance on her TikTok account. Still, she hasn’t confirmed nor denied the specific procedures claimed by professional plastic surgeons and plastic surgery YouTuber Lorry Hill.

Selena Gomez’s Recent Photos Spurred Fans to Defend Her Natural Body
Earlier this month, Pop Base released paparazzi photos of Gomez on Twitter, depicting the singer enjoying a dip in the ocean while vacationing in Cabo, Mexico. The post attracted many responses, pointing out how “different” she looked.
One user said they hadn’t seen her pictures or music videos in approximately five years but claimed Gomez “looked so different.” The said Twitter user wondered if Gomez had undergone plastic surgery on her face.
Another Twitter user said they were “10,000% sure” that Gomez had done “ponytail plastic surgery.” In March 2022, another post where Gomez flaunted her new hairstyle garnered the same opinions, with commenters saying the “Same Old Love” songstress looked like a “totally different person.”
Gomez’s fans took to Twitter to defend her, with one user claiming that most American women weighed 170 pounds on average; hence, Gomez was a prime example. Another user seemed to speak against the stigma surrounding plastic surgery, though with some reservations, as they said:
“All Botox does is prevents wrinkles it’s not like she got lip injections plastic surgery on her butt etc.”
Experts Thought Selena Gomez Hadn’t Had Plastic Surgery but Did Other Procedures
In 2019, Gomez sparked rumors about having done surgery breast enhancement surgery after stepping out in a black fitted dress with a deep neckline. When asked for their professional opinions, Board Certified Plastic Surgeons Drs Norman M. Rowe and Manish Shah suspected breast augmentation.
Dr. Rowe and Dr. Shah doubted Gomez had undergone any facial modifications and attributed any claimed changes to makeup and weight fluctuation. However, after reviewing the actress’s photos, Dr. Rowe added that Gomez had lip fillers since her lips appeared “fuller than before.”

Lorry Hill, a plastic surgery YouTuber, also provided her perspective. She detailed her reasons for believing that Gomez had done facial modification procedures, including brow lifts, lip fillers, and buccal fat removal. However, it is worth noting that her observations were simply her opinions.
Selena Gomez Feels She’s “Perfect the Way” She Is despite Body Shaming
Much like Fantasia, Lizzo, and Adele, who felt that her body had been objectified – Gomez has been criticized for her weight gain. In 2019, she explained that her weight has continuously fluctuated due to her medical diagnoses and treatments.

The changes her body exhibited affected her self-image, and it didn’t help that people attacked it online. However, despite the body shaming she faced, Gomez eventually concluded that it didn’t matter what she looked like, as she explained:
“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people [expletive] about it anyway. ‘You’re too small,’ ‘you’re too big,’ ‘that doesn’t fit.’ ‘Meh meh meh meh.’ [expletive], I am perfect the way I am. Moral of the story? Bye.”
Before she made the inspiring declaration, Gomez had reflected on how she tried to “stay skinny,” but her love for food sometimes outweighed the desire to conform. She recalled how she once got herself and enjoyed “four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings, and a spicy chicken sandwich” in one order.
