Besides winning awards, Taeyeon is also a skilled artisan at winning hearts. The count of her fan base stands at a million. Being in the forefront almost all her life, Taeyeon, like all other celebrities, is not free from people speculating about her personal life.
One such speculation is of her cosmetic procedure rumours. Has Taeyeon undergone facial reconstructive procedures? Here is what you need to know:
Before and After Pictures
Did Taeyeon get a nose job?
If you compare Taeyeon’s before and after pictures, you will find many distinct changes on her face. One such change has to do with her nose.
Looking at her photos taken in 2007 to her recent pictures, you will notice that her nose has undergone a good number of changes. Taeyeon’s original nostril looked broader, and the tip of her nose seemed to be blunt.
The speculation is put forward, keeping in mind that many filter apps can easily manipulate photos. Thus, in this regard, it is important to watch her performances too. Her videos during her Girl’s Generation days show the same nose. It looked shorter and more centred.
Taeyeon is an absolute beauty with very delicate features, except for her nose, which seemed quite thick and broad. However, her recent pictures show a more defined thinner nose with a unique contoured nose and a slightly pointy tip. Many fans opined that her nose looked incredibly beautiful, and it seemed to have brought her whole face into proportion.
Did Taeyeon undergo eyelid lift?
The second most common cosmetic procedure in South Korea is eyelid surgery. The majority of Koreans are born with mono-eyelids. Thus, the desire for a double-eyelid is a whole another level for South Koreans.
Netizens speculated Taeyeon to have undergone a very conservative eyelid surgery to widen up the corners of her eyes and give herself fuller, more doll-like eyes.
Simultaneously, she was rumoured to have done a double-eyelid surgery since her natural eyelids were almost non-existent. In the context of these rumours, channel-Korea.com uploaded Taeyeon’s baby pictures (aged 4 and 7) in 2019 to prove that her eyes are natural and that she has not undergone any cosmetic surgery procedures to alter the shape of her eyes.
If you take a good look at the images, you will notice that Taeyeon’s eyes are naturally big with a thin double-eyelid.
It is thus, unsure if Taeyeon had done anything to eyes. This is said keeping in mind that her eyelids must have taken their definite shape over the years. As she matured into a young adult under the spotlight, she may have altered her appearance by experimenting with diverse eye-makeup techniques such as double eyelid tapes, false eye-lashes and circle contact lenses.
Did Taeyeon Get jawline surgery?
In 2019, channel-Korea.com posted two zoomed-in photos of Taeyeon of 2009 and 2016, respectively. The picture of 2009 showed a healthy Taeyeon with a chubbier, fuller face.
Years later, she had the same hairstyle and hair colour with the cute bangs, but her face had changed completely. Her chin looked sharper with a more prominent jawline. Additionally, the 2016 photo appeared as though Taeyeon might have a high cheekbone.
After these images made headlines, netizens began to speculate that Taeyeon must have undergone jawline surgery to make her face appear smaller and more defined. Furthermore, fans refused to believe that it can be the work of make-up and contouring since make-up can enhance features but not reduce the size of a face.
In South Korea, the cost of a nose job or rhinoplasty can range between $4500-6000, $3500-4000 for blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery, $10000-$15000 for jawline and chin surgery.
