Lana Del Rey has come on the music scene from nowhere, and poised to be the next celebrity sensation people are already asking if she has had any cosmetic enhancements. Del Rey is a singer from New York with songs like “Video Games” that have garnered her a good deal of attention.
However, despite her rise from the trailer park, as she says that’s where she lived previously, there has been a lot of speculation about the singer’s lips.
They seem fuller now, almost too much, and lots of bloggers have suspected that Lana Del Rey has had lip surgery to improve her pout.
Has Lana Had Cosmetic Surgery?
While discussions of lips often involve other starlets such as Scarlett Johansson, Ms. Del Rey is making her own ripples in the area. Those who believe the rumors claim that it’s entirely possible she’s received lip injections like collagen to add volume, and these are considered non-surgical procedures.
On the other hand it isn’t impossible that she’s lip implants like softform or fat grafting to give her lips that softer, fuller look that she has when she sings.
On the other hand several people have put the question to the singer herself, and while no one has made any claims, Del Rey has vehemently denied that she’s had any work done on herself at all:
“I’m sorry, but I was living in a trailer park for a few years. I didn’t even have enough money to buy Cocoa Puffs. It’s not like I crawled from under the bridge and got surgery,” Del Rey said in an interview with Complex.
Before & After Pictures
Of course, as with pictures of other celebrities, there are clear differences that fans are looking to fill with explanations.
While Del Rey herself may deny that there’s been any sort of surgery, there are very noticeable differences in some pictures from her early career and pre-fame and the way she looks now in interviews and appearances.
And given that it isn’t unusual for young and beautiful celebrities to turn to surgery to improve their looks, that’s one of the first places that fans turn to for an explanation as to what’s going on with Del Ray’s looks.
However, plastic surgery is not the only possible explanation for the singer’s look.
It’s entirely possible that she’s being honest and that she got nothing done. Average women have access to cosmetics that range from lip plumper to colored gloss, all of which can create the illusion of fuller, softer lips.
Celebrities have access to the very same tips and tricks, but they can also afford the top shelf illusions and cosmetic artists whose job is to make them look entirely different from who they were before.
As such, it’s entirely possible that what audiences are seeing is not Lana’s lip surgery, but just a clever illusion that’s created from light and cosmetics, making her lips seem bigger.
