NeNe Leakes Visits
NeNe Leakes has been open in the past about the numerous cosmetic procedures she’s undergone during her time in the spotlight! But ahead of the June 14 premiere of her new show, To Tell the Truth, Leakes sparked some new talk about her face after it appeared she may have had yet another nose job! And several top doctors quickly sounded off on the controversy and what was possibly really going on with Leakes’ face.
"It appears that NeNe has a new nose," Dr. Anthony Youn also told RadarOnline.com. "It looks thinner, more refined and it projects more than it did before." He went on to explain the procedures that are sometimes used to make noses appear thinner. “Often, the extra projection and thinning of the nose is due to a combination of inserting a solid silicone nasal implant and breaking the nose. Overall it looks great! Different, but great," Dr. Youn, who has not worked on Leakes, said.
Leakes first ignited the new plastic surgery rumors with a selfie she uploaded to her Instagram account on June 7. Many of her followers quickly took to the comments section of the picture, expressing their thoughts on her rumored new look!
And the talk about Leakes’ possible new cosmetic procedure was fueled even more when the first episodes of her new show, To Tell the Truth, aired on June 14.
Though the episodes aired in June 2016, they were actually filmed almost a year before during July 2015, shortly after Leakes’ shocking exit from The Real Housewives of Atlanta in June 2015. And many fans of Leakes took to their social media accounts to once again offer their thoughts on Leakes’ current look, comparing her face from the 2015 tapings to her 2016 appearances to promote the show!
Leakes has yet to comment on the controversy over her nose. But while speaking to RadarOnline.com about the drama, several top doctors offered their own possible proof that Leakes may have once again gone under the knife.
"I am 99 percent sure that she had rhinoplasty, a.k.a. a nose job. She's busted!" said plastic surgeon Dr. Susan Evans of Beverly Hills, California. Dr. Evans, who has not treated Leakes, added, “It appears the surgeons elevated her nose bridge, narrowed and lifted the tip as well.”
Dr. Michael Salzhauer — who is also known as Dr. Miami and has not treated Leakes — supported Evans’ claims! "NeNe appears to have had rhinoplasty to improve the contour of her nose and tip,” he said. "They did a great job her profile is much sleeker ."
Cosmetic Rejuvenation's esthetician, Dr. Zara Harutyunyan, also agreed that Leakes looked to have had some new work done. "Nene does look like she did go through a rhinoplasty nose surgery, or she could have done a non-surgical nose job with the help from dermal fillers,” Dr. Harutyunyan said, who has not treated Leakes. And Dr. Sheila Nazarian , who also has not treated Leakes, echoed the comments of her fellow medical professionals. "Nene appears to have had a rhinoplasty to define and lift the tip of her nose and narrow her nose,” Dr. Nazarian said.
Leakes previously revealed to People the details of her first nose job, admitting that she did undergo the procedure in April of 2010. "I'm very comfortable and confident in myself. I just wanted a tune up," she told the publication, adding that she got her breast implants reduced and lifted. She also said she received liposuction to contour her waist, People reported. "I still wanted to look like NeNe, the black woman that I am," she said, "but a better version.” However, amid the talk surrounding her 2016 plastic surgery scandal, Leakes remained mum, offering no comments on the nose job chatter following the debut of To Tell the Truth!
