Amanda Bynes became extremely defensive recently after noticing that tabloids were using old photos of her as opposed to current ones. While many didn’t notice much of a change, besides the new piercings and different hair, there is at least one brand new feature — Amanda’s nose. Over the weekend, the former child star admitted to the surgery and explained why she made the change.
“The reason I’ve asked all magazines and blogs to stop using old photos of me is I don’t look like that anymore!” Amanda told her followers on Twitter. “I had a nose job to remove skin that was like a webbing in between my eyes. I wasn’t going to tell anyone, but I look so much prettier in my new photos that I don’t want old photos used anymore!”
Since the surgery, Amanda has been tweeting close-ups of her sniffer around the clock so clearly she’s happy with the results, but we can’t help but ask, Was her old nose really that bad? It seems like a perfectly good nose and as for the webbing, it appears to be unnoticeable in photographs.
Amanda is also rumored to have gotten a breast augmentation, but so far she hasn’t admitted to it. However, she has been posting plenty of photos (some even topless) in which she looks a lot more top heavy than before and by a lot we’re talking a couple cup sizes.
Has Amanda Bynes Had Plastic Surgery?
Despite accusations that Amanda Bynes is now a young plastic surgery star, she has not confirmed any sort of cosmetic procedures. Like others such as Kat Von D (see Kat Von D’s plastic surgery), no one seems to know.
For that matter no one has come forward and said they have insider information, or that they’d seen her medical chart.
All that people have scraped up so far are the obligatory images that show Bynes with a changing appearance.
And if you look at those pictures they do clearly show that Bynes looks different now than she did when she was younger.
Bynes has a slimmer face now, and it looks as if her cheekbones are higher and more defined.
Her teeth are bright, and some have accused her of getting dental veneers which make her mouth look over crowded.
And there are also the obligatory accusations of breast implants, lip procedures, rhinoplasty and other, “standard” cosmetic surgeries in Hollywood (see also Kim Kardashian plastic surgery before and after)
But just because she’s been accused, does that mean that Amanda Bynes has gone all the way and gotten celebrity cosmetic surgery at such a young age?
There is, however, another explanation for the differences that people see in the Amanda Bynes before and after pictures.
It’s important to remember that Bynes was a child star, and most of her acting was done in her teens.
Even her photos in Maxim magazine, showing that she’s definitely all grown up, were when she was in her early 20s. The simplest explanation for the fact that her face and lips have changed shape is that she’s growing up.
Bynes kept her baby fat for longer than most actresses, and it was very obvious that she was keeping it because of all the work she was doing at the time.
Now that she’s finished growing and maturing, she’s finally shed the looks of her teen years.
That isn’t to say that one explanation is right and the other wrong, but it’s important that when you listen to rumors about plastic surgery that you look at every possible angle to see what seems most likely.
Given how young Amanda Bynes is, and the fact that she never had any mysterious down time that would indicate surgery recovery, the idea that she’s gone under the knife seems ludicrous.
But who knows, maybe the Amanda Bynes cosmetic surgery rumors are true, after all.
