As OK! readers know, Carrie Underwood tripped and fell on a step outside her house in November 2017. The accident was worse than she thought and she quickly realized that she had to go through cosmetic surgery. Carrie was upfront with the accident and the medical procedures she had to go through all because she didn't want the world to think that she chose to get plastic surgery. She opened up about this tough choice in a recent interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, September 19.

If you look at Carrie before and after the accident, you would never guess that anything happened, let alone that her face was covered in stitches less than a year ago. When she shared some of the details of her accident in the beginning of 2018, all of her fans expected her to look WAY worse when they saw her for the first time.

“People pick apart, you know what that’s like…being under a microscope,” Carrie explained to Ellen. “I felt like people were going to say like, ‘what has she done to herself,’ you know … electably. And it definitely was not a choice," she said.

The 35-year-old explained that she tried to catch herself with her hands, but injured her wrist and face when she hit the ground. “I didn’t realize how bad it was,” she shared. “I feel like anytime anything happens….it’s adrenaline or something. You don’t really know until you take a second to assess.”

The majority of people were very sympathetic to the blonde but there was also a lot of negative comments when she posted a photo of her face for the first time after her accident on Instagram.

One person said, "You are taking your accident and turning it into so much more than it really is. Boo, you broke your wrist and ended up with 40 plus stitches. AND healed! Get over yourself!"

"Pathetic I’ve seen such a big deal made over ur face and it looks exactly the same," said another commenter.
