She’s the highest paid supermodel and Tom Brady’s wife. Yes, we’re talking about Brazilian beauty Gisele Bündchen. Though we see more photos of her off the runway now with her husband and two kids than on, there’s no denying that even in her late 30s, her striking looks are still something to talk about.
Though she’s not typically at the center of controversy, photos from 2015 had our attention. Rumors flew that Gisele may have had plastic surgery. Here’s the rumor, how she feels about going under the knife, and of course, the infamous photo itself.
1. Gisele says she’d never consider cosmetic surgery
Though many stars are open about getting cosmetic surgery, Gisele maintains that she’s never even considered it. Back in 2008, Vogue reports the young Brazilian said that she asked her mother if she would ever get work done. And her mother said she absolutely would not.
” … [S]he said, ‘It’s taken me 58 years for me to look like this. You think I’m going to ruin it now?'” Gisele said at the time. “She looks great, so I hope I will look the same.” That was many years ago, however, so perhaps her feelings have now changed.

2. Many believe Gisele had a nose job early in her career
Maybe it’s just the heavy runway makeup, but many believe Gisele’s nose has changed dramatically throughout the years. Plastic surgeon Dr. Rawnsley is one of those people, saying her nose is very typical for her Brazilian-German descent. Rawnsley speculates that she didn’t have anything too severe done, but that she had contouring to slim the bridge of her nose and smooth out a bump that was just below her eyes.
Gisele never commented on this rumor, so we can’t say for sure. But she has said in the past that many believed her nose was too big for her to be a model, so take this into account.

3. One source says she was concerned over her ‘sagging breasts’ in 2015
Having two children can certainly take a toll on your body, even if you’re a supermodel. And one source in 2015 told Page Six Gisele had concerns over her “sagging breasts” in 2015, when the rumors started flying. For this reason, the source believes she went to the International Clinique du Parc Monceau in Paris to get work done.
Another reason Gisele might be fine with going under the knife now is that she’s out of the modeling spotlight. The source believes the surgery may have been a birthday present to herself for turning 35, and a celebration for retiring.

4. A plastic surgeon also says it looks like she’s had a breast augmentation
Experts have weighed in on Gisele’s changing looks over the years. And plastic surgeon Dr. Tal Roudner says it does appear that she may have had a breast augmentation within the last few years, Life & Style reports.
Roudner has never personally worked on the supermodel, but he says this area of her body appears a little larger in recent years. He suggests she still looks very natural, however, “which is the ultimate goal of cosmetic surgery at the end of the day.” So she probably only went up one cup size if she did go under the knife.

5. This 1 photo of Gisele in a burqa had all of us wondering
In 2015, Gisele was spotted in a burqa with her sister in Paris. It was during the holy month of Ramadan, so wearing traditional Muslim outfits wasn’t too suspicious. But in the photo, Gisele’s wearing open-toed shoes, which is a definite no for women in traditional Muslim culture, Page Six reports. According to one source, the real reason she was wearing such concealing clothing was so that she could sneak into the Paris plastic surgery facility unnoticed.
The source reports that she had work done on her breasts and eyes and recovered for five days in an exclusive spa before leaving Paris. And in the airport on her way back to the U.S., the burqa was nowhere to be found.

6. Experts say it definitely looks like she’s at least had Botox
We can’t say for sure if the Brazilian beauty has gone under the knife. But nurse practitioner Jennifer Leebow tells Life & Style that Gisele has definitely at least had facial fillers to keep her complexion looking perfect. Leebow also says, “She appears to have some minor lift to her brows from a moderate amount of Botox” too.
Gisele clearly has a very good maintenance program, Leebow notes, as she still looks fresh and youthful as she approaches 40.

7. Gisele denies the rumors, saying she looks great because of her daily routines
So, what keeps Gisele looking so young? She attributes it to her and her husband’s strict, plant-based diet instead of cosmetic work. Harper’s Bazaar says the Brady family doesn’t eat white sugar, white flour, MSG, caffeine, fungus, dairy, or even nightshades, such as tomatoes. Gisele says this is the way she’s eaten for 10 years, and she’s turned Tom onto the diet as well.
When she cooks, she’s also restrictive with what she uses. She chooses coconut oil over canola, and Himalayan pink salt instead of traditional table salt, says Life & Style.
