Dr. Hassan Soueid stated that he believes that Jung may have had "a chin filler to increase the projection of the chin." Another physician, Dr. Jacob Duman, agreed with Soueid, as they both claimed that the actress may have had "buccal fat removal surgery that aims to remove the excess fat pads in the cheek. This reduces the size of the cheeks."

Meanwhile, Prof. Dr. Fuat Yuksel strongly feels that the woman — who was named a "Top 50" fashion model by Vogue — did not have any cosmetic treatments, and her beauty is all natural.
