The stars of Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom 2, and now Teen Mom 3 are no strangers to being in the spotlight. From public spats with their parents or boyfriends to emotional breakdowns on the reunion show, the viewers see it all. And there’s another aspect of the stars’ lives they aren’t so private about: plastic surgery.
Several of the show’s cast members have vocalized their experiences going under the knife. And others have remained on the quieter side, leading to audience speculation. Here are the stars who’ve had work done, as well as one particular photo that proves this mom has had the most plastic surgery of them all.
Three Teen Mom stars all went to get plastic surgery done at the same time
It turns out plastic surgery serves as a group outing for three Teen Mom stars. People reports in January 2016, sisters Brittany and Briana DeJesus and Kailyn Lowry all went to Dr. Michael Salzhauer in Miami to get work done. Kailyn reportedly had a Brazilian butt lift and tummy tuck, while Briana had a butt lift, labiaplasty, and larger breast implants put in. Brittany chose to get the Brazilian butt lift along with fat transfers to her breasts.
While these stars are only in their 20s, the doctor defends their decision to go under the knife. He says it’s not about age, but rather what your body has been through over the years.

Jenelle Evans’ features have drastically changed over the years
Jenelle’s intense fights with her mother (and the law, for that matter) are what usually take center stage. But over her years on Teen Mom 2, we’ve also noticed her ever-changing look. In Touch Weekly reports Jenelle has admitted to getting breast implants in 2012 and temporary lip fillers in 2016. After her backside looked more lifted than usual, fans also speculated that she may have had a butt lift.
“If I want a bigger butt, I’m going to work for it,” Jenelle says, denying the speculation. “I’m going to build it with muscle, not implants or injections.”

Amber Portwood’s ‘mommy makeover’ is well documented on social media
In 2016, Teen Mom fans remember seeing Amber Portwood show off her new body on Instagram. Daily Mail Online says Amber admitted to getting her breasts lifted as well as body contouring. But when questioned about her face, the star promised she had no work done. “I just learned how to do my makeup!” she says.
She also recommends a “mommy makeover” to anyone who wants their old body back. And criticism over her new look doesn’t seem to phase her, either.

Maci Bookout’s chest sparked plastic surgery rumors a few years ago
Fans were surprised when Maci Bookout looked as if she’d had breast implants back in 2011. And though the star has never publically spoken about going under the knife, International Business Times notes the huge difference in Maci’s chest just the year prior. The publication also notes a friend of Maci’s told Life & Style that Maci did indeed have “breast enlargement surgery.”
We can’t say for sure what procedures Maci underwent, if any, as she still has not addressed the rumors.

This 1 photo shows off Farrah Abraham’s extreme plastic surgery
Perhaps the most infamous mom of them all, Farrah Abraham has been quite open with her plastic surgery over the years. And she hasn’t just had one operation, either. It’s clear through her photos that she’s had many.
This one full-body image from her Instagram highlights breast and butt enhancements, and the lighting also shows off her nose job, lip fillers, and chin implant. In Touch Weekly also reports in August 2017, Farrah went under the knife to “rejuvenate” her vagina.

And Farrah has had serious mishaps with going under the knife in the past
Farrah’s well-known for enhancing her body with frequency — but her botched lip surgery in 2015 really highlights what can go wrong. Us Weekly reports Farrah talked about the experience as a “wake up call,” as the numbing product applied to her lips caused them to nearly triple in size. She even posted photos of her horrifying experience on Twitter to serve as a warning to other women.
Even after her scary reaction, she still revealed back in 2015 that she was considering a butt enhancement. And according to In Touch Weekly, she went through with the procedure two years later.

Kailyn Lowry recently made another plastic surgery appointment — but decided against it
Kailyn is no stranger to plastic surgery, as noted before — but more recently, she had a change of heart. Us Weekly says the star tweeted, “I came to Miami for lipo & a boob job. But hours before my surgery I decided I don’t want to go through with it.” Kailyn reportedly determined that instead of spending her money on cosmetic procedures, she’s opting to get a nutritionist and head back to the gym. Since the star has had at least three surgeries in the past, however, we’ll see if that lasts.
Next: Celebrities you never knew went under the knife
Chances are that no one would have guessed the young Modern Family star went under the knife if she didn’t openly talk about it. Winter got a breast reduction and talked openly about it in 2015. She addressed how puberty had an unexpected painful effect on her body, which made her come to the decision to get surgery.
“It really did happen overnight,” the actress told Glamour. “I remember being in my sister’s wedding and being so flat and thinking, ‘I just wish I would grow boobs!’ and then overnight I did. But then they kept growing and growing and growing and it didn’t seem like they were going to stop.” She then continued, “I was 15 years old with [size] F [breasts]. It’s like, how do you navigate that?”
She said that she had so much back pain that she decided to get a reduction, and went down to a 34D. The good thing is that she said a lot of women in her family have large breasts so they were very understanding about it. “A few of my cousins have had breast reductions,” she told the magazine “so it wasn’t a shock when I decided to get one.”
Since the surgery, the actress has proudly shown off her surgery scar on the red carpet. That includes the black dress with a low cut back that she wore to the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She also tweeted about her visible scars.
Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all. :)

Next: One of America’s favorite fitness stars
The Biggest Loser star is all about being healthy and looking great. She is also all about doing so through hard physical work. So it might be surprising that she has gotten plastic surgery herself! However, it didn’t have anything to do with her weight, and she got it done when she was very young.
“I had my nose done when I was 16 years old, and I’ll be honest, it did change my life,” she told People Magazine. She got the procedure done because she was being bullied for her nose. She also wanted to feel more confident about her body. But she warns against turning to plastic surgery every time you feel insecure.
“Not to say you should let your physicality define you, but there are some things that can make people feel really insecure. So, if there is something you want to fix that allows you to feel a little bit more confident, I support it.” She then continued, “I think it’s about [doing it for] the right reasons.”
Next: This Friends star had work done when she was only 16.
A big part of the actress’s appeal is how funny she is, so many people probably haven’t focused on her looks or wondered whether she’s gotten plastic surgery. But you may be shocked to find out that she went under the knife when she was only 16 years old. Right before changing high schools she got a nose job. Kudrow has talked openly about how that surgery has changed her life.
“That was life altering,” she told The Saturday Evening Post. “I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”
Before that, the Friends actress was a bit of an outcast in school. “All of junior high felt upside down to me,” she explained. “It was not, like, the nice people who were popular; it wasn’t the most entertaining people — it was the meanest people who were popular.”
Next: This star grew up alongside of Beyoncé.
The public has pretty much watched Rowland grow up beside Beyoncé so you might think that everyone would notice if she got anything done. But pretty much no one noticed that she went under the knife later in life. It was Beyoncé who also gave her sister advice on what to do before she did it.
“I wanted to get breast implants when I was 18, but my mom and Beyoncé’s mom told me to really think about it first,” she told Shape magazine. “I took their advice and waited 10 years.” When the time came and she decided to go through with it, she went through a little exercise beforehand.
“Once I felt ready, I tried on padded bras and walked around in them to see how it would feel. You have to know what you’re getting, no matter what type of surgery it is.”
Next: America’s most famous model and actress had work done on her chin and nose.
The Hollywood star is remembered for her movies, but also her beauty. She has inspired many actresses and people to try out the blonde hair and penciled beauty mark look. But many probably don’t know that she got plastic surgery in order to look like the beauty icon she is remembered as.
According to Allure, there are X-rays of the movie star’s skull and medical records that show that she got surgery on her chin and nose. Also the memoir, Are Those Real?: True Tales of Plastic Surgery from Beverly Hills revealed that a plastic surgeon claimed the actress was his patient. “Gurdin had mentioned to me casually over the years that Marilyn had been a patient of his and that he had seen her shortly before she died,” read the book. This is referring to a UCLA plastic surgeon named Michael Gurdin.
According to a book called The Youth Doctors, the actress reportedly overheard someone call her a “chinless wonder” which made her seek surgery in 1958. The author then said Monroe got a cartilage graft, and afterwards had to postpone a screen test. She claimed she had to miss it because she fell on her chin.
Later in 1962 she reportedly got a nose job and checked in under the alias Joan Newman. The reason behind the procedure was because she thought she broke her nose from a fall. However, a radiologist later said he could not find a break in her nose.
Next: Even Betty White had a little work done.
The Golden Girls actress has had a long career, and is one of the few in Hollywood who seemed to have aged naturally. So many would be shocked to find out that she actually has had work done. It’s a surgery that is less common, and perhaps more subtle than others.
“It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature! But in 1976 I had my eyelids done,” she admitted in her book, If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won’t). “I scolded myself forever, but now I’m glad I did it.” Who would have known? Even into her 80s the actress still resembles her old self. No one would have guessed that she has gone under the knife to alter her appearance.

Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis is one of the few actresses in Hollywood that has rocked her grey hair, and has seemingly embraced aging without fear of it damaging her career. So many would assume she has also refrained from surgery. But the actress has spoken out about getting a huge procedure done.
“I’ve done it all,” she revealed according to The Telegraph. “I’ve had a little plastic surgery. I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little Botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it.” A big influence on her decision was the 80s aerobic craze that required her to wear leotards on-screen repeatedly. That led to her getting a lot of procedures that were new at the time, but common now.
“Ten years ago,” she continued “before anybody did that, I had fat taken from underneath my eyes because I was on a movie and I was puffy. I remember the cameraman saying: ‘I can’t shoot her now.’ I remember being mortified.” But that ended up not improving her confidence. “And yet, you know what? Nobody tells you if you take fat from your body in one place, it comes back in another place. All of these ‘bettering’ experiences are not without risk. And there is this illusion that once you do it, then you’ll be fine. And that’s just horse shit. I looked worse.”
