But as we take a closer look at the “queen of mean"’s famous face, we can’t help but wonder if pressure isn’t the only thing she’s been under lately.
"I did not work on Ellen but looking at her face I can see that it is starting to look a little pulled,” says Dr. Worldwide of Texas, "which is one of the first 'tell-tale' signs of a facelift."
Dan Holtz, owner of Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center, agrees it's possible that the 62-year-old has gone under the knife.
"Although I have not worked on Ellen, looking at her recent photos it does appear she has done some work. Ellen appears to have had a lower face and neck lift,” he says.
In addition to being on television every day, Ellen’s face became the focus of CoverGirl advertisements in January 2009.

"I'm thrilled to be a CoverGirl," says DeGeneres said at the time as she promoted CoverGirl’s Simply Ageless Foundation. "I've been practicing in my bathroom mirror for years... Now finally, you'll all be able to see it."
But perhaps makeup couldn’t do all the tricks she needed. Pam Agullo, MD concurs Ellen, who is no longer contracted with the beauty brand, has had some work done, although her fresh face could have been achieved without surgery.
"Ellen definitely looks like she has more volume in her high cheeks as well as under her eyes,” she says. “She could have achieved this with either fat injections or fillers."
