1 of 15

Plastic surgery and Hollywood celebrities seem to go hand in hand. With the endless amount of money that celebrities have and the endless amount of plastic surgeons looking to do their job, it’s no surprise that black celebs too have gone under the knife for enhancements and changes. Here are 14 black celebs who have clearly had plastic surgery.


Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj has definitely had a few body parts enhanced and upgraded with the help of breast implants, butt injections, a nose job, and probably more.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Though it’s never been confirmed, it looks like Jada has gone under the knife for cheek implants.

Lil Kim

Compared to past pictures, Lil Kim has definitely had a nose job, lip injections, and breast implants.


After being called a man and a hermaphrodite, Ciara added to her femininity by getting breast implants.

Patti LaBelle

Patti LaBelle is one of the few celebrities to actually admit to having a nose job, and thankfully hers looks great.

Janet Jackson

Must be a family thing! Janet Jackson has also gone under the knife to sport a thinner nose. But it’s obvious that she’s gotten other work done.


Unsurprisingly, Beyonce had a nose job but her new nose looks just fine. She’s also possibly had a breast augmentation.

Elise Neal

Elise admitted to getting breast implants in order to make her more curvy and voluptuous.

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson’s bad nose job turned off a lot of Black folks to the idea of plastic surgery. But he loved it so who cares.

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland had breast implants and possibly a nose job, although she’s only confirmed her new chest size.


Amerie had her nose shaped and sculpted to be much more narrow. Thankfully her nose job turned out okay.

Vivica A. Fox

Vivica has had breast implants as well as Botox to keep her youthful look.

Wendy Williams

Wendy has had plenty of plastic surgery including a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Tyra Banks

Model Tyra Banks wasn’t born with her model-esque face. In fact, she somewhat admitted to having a nose job in 2007.

    I live in LA and I have a friend who’s a technician at a cosmetic surgery clinic. She knows exactly what some celebs have done and how many times. I was so surprised!!

    Beyonce has had a nose job, fat transfers in her butt and boobs, and of course liposuction in her stomach, flanks and inner thighs. The thigh lipo happened recently.

    Many women get fat transfers now because it makes it look more natural and it’s not as obvious. Kim K is not a good example of that. She’s said to have had THREE fat transfers into her butt and two nose jobs. She’s also clinically diagnosed with body dysmorphia.

    The celeb life is totally not as enviable as I thought.

  • S2C

    Jada Pinkett’s cheek implants make her look older than she really is. Don’t know why she decided to have surgery. She was quite a lovely lady before. Surgery DID NOT enhance her beautiy.

  • rune kristensen

    black celebs? they all look like tanned white women!

  • Leah Robinson

    Ciara also had a nose job and looks like she’s added extra eyebrow hairs in to make them appear naturally thick. It seems like the common trend with these are nose jobs…why can’t wide noses ever be the standard of beauty smh

  • Just saying!!

    Mariah Carey, Oprah, Alicia Keys. Sadly most black celebrities have had nose jobs. 🙁

  • Kaylalives

    Unfortunately , this is inaccurate. Beyonce has not had a nose job. There is a little make up trick called contouring. The way you know that she didnt is through proof! her nose gets fat as she gains weight, and as she looses it it may look slimmer. She also didnt have a boob job. the pic you see in that Versace dress is when she was still breast feeding Blue. C’mon people you know how the human body works! I wish people would get their facts straight.

    • Just saying!!

      hmmm I think she has had a nose job actually. Her nose looks much thinner now, and the contouring they did for her in DC couldn’t have been THAT much different than now lol you can tell even when looking at her without make up

  • Miko Blouin

    OMG…are they f’ing serious….Jada Pinkett has always had high cheek bones, she did not have plastic surgery…i swear the nerve SMFH

  • what about Hallie..?

  • sistaB

    Janet and La Toya are not beautiful anymore. They used to be gorgeous but they messed with their faces and skin tone too much just like Michael did.

  • NO_Name

    CIARA never looked like a man. I just don’t know why people say that… She’s beautiful.

  • LeeLee

    Kelly Rowland absolutely got a nose job. Look at early DC pics and you’ll be able to tell.

    I can’t believe the only thing they credited Viveca Fox with was a boob job and lip. She has had several (unnecessary) nose jobs and I believe she had her eyes done. As with most of these women, I don’t know why she tinkered with herself. She looked so much better before the knife.

  • I hate those cheek implants that Jada got. When I watched Hawthorne, those things bothered me constantly. She was so pretty before. I think she tinkered with her nose too.

  • besides

    so what, they have the money and they earned the right to look and feel how they want to. womoen do it, men do it, why is this newsworthy. unless you were writting an article on celebs who wished they hadn’t gone under the knife. its all entertainment and i love it.

  • gstat1

    Jada looks just like a younger version of her mother. She appears to have just lost whatever baby fat (on her face) she may have had from her, “Different World” days.

    • tt

      nope! jada definitely had cheek implants & they look horrible. she’s still pretty, but those cheeks…

  • MissAmerica

    Amerie needed surgery. I think she got more than a nose job.

    • Reina

      Ameriie is gorgeous irregardless, and she did not have more than a nose job.

      • irregardless- not a word. word

        • Umm Ashaad

          Actually, Irregardless is a word, it is an action and adverb of regardless, check your dictionary. (we should learn to check ourselves, before checking someone else).

          • November

            It is slang. Most dictionaries list it as “nonstandard” or “incorrect” usage, and recommend that “regardless” should be used instead.

            • Umm Ashaad

              It is still a word, whether you agree or not: Irregardless is a word commonly used in place of regardless or irrespective, which has caused controversy since the early twentieth century, though the word appeared in print as early as 1795. Most dictionaries list it as nonstandard or incorrect usage, and recommend that “regardless” should be used instead.

              • November

                lol, ok…maybe in your world. Enjoy it. I wouldn’t dare say it in my neck of the woods. Happy New Year.

                • Umm Ashaad

                  My world consists of dictionary and word usage resource, maybe yours does not….oh ok, I understand so you can be killed for using it? Sounds real hard to live in a place where you can’t use a certain word because it will be seen as a major faux pas and you will be shunned, you’re neck of the woods you have a nice year as well and many more peace.

          • November

            Irregardless is a lot like folks who say, “Flustrated”. No, the words are either: Flustered or Frustrated.

            The words are either: Regardless or Irrespective; not irregardless.

  • MissAmerica

    I don’t think kelly Rowland had a nose job. Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Janet Jackson, Vivica Fox, and Jada Pinkett didn’t need any kind of surgery or cosmetic enhancements. I don’t know why they went there. Patti Labelle did get a nose job and it looks very authentic and natural. I’m surprised Toni Braxton is not on here. Jay-Z got lip reduction.

    • Kelly Rowland had her breast done and possibly a nose job.

    • November

      Just look at her photo when DC first started and look at her now. She had her nose done.

  • Blayke_Love

    The only ones I am suspect of would be Ciara, she has always looked the same, Beyonce has pictures on her website of every year of her life from age 3 months…SHE HAS ALWAYS HAD THE SAME NOSE… So i am gonna need to see a receipt or video on these two. they look the same as always. Can a black woman just look pretty with nice features? just asking?

    • MissAmerica

      Beyonce had a nose job. She didn’t always had that nose. Beyonce and Solange had similar nose types. Solange’s was more profound. They both had their father nose. Tinal Knowles had A LOT of surgery and work done. That was one ugly looking woman.

      • Miko Blouin

        you are a moron,,,where is your picture…Bey has not had surgery and Miss Tina that is a pretty woman and she def has not had anything done….please show yourself hater

        • Just saying!!

          Although I think that was an ignorant comment, I’m afraid Bey has had a nose job. Her nose is much thinner now…

        • November

          Where is your picture? it’s called, “Googling”. All you have to do is get your old CD of DCs first album and look at Beyonce today. She. Had. A. Nose. Job. Many black celebrities have had nose jobs. You’ll be surprised. Just look at them when they started and look at them today.

          Once again: Beyonce, even though she is a beautiful woman and was beautiful before: that gurl got her nose did. Yup. ….and she didn’t give birth to Blue. (I just threw that in to cause problems.) lol.

    • Sorry honey, Bey had a nose job, and a boob job! And to say she has nice features, that is objective. I think money can make ANYONE look good regardless of the features you have.

      • tt

        i don’t think beyonce had a boob job because her breasts are still small. she just pushes them up/together w/a bra, but her breasts are small.

    • Britney Robinson

      There are things you can put in your nose that make it look more defined sometimes I swear celebs must wear them, because you can see them in all stages of life and they have a different nose shape depending on the day!

      • leana

        I know it can, be hard to expect that, Beyonce has hard work done, but her nose drastically thinner. Make up can, only do some much. It can’t completely Change the shape like surgery.

        • Britney Robinson

          Sweeetie, I can have my opinion and you can have yours. There are nose shapers that change the shape pretty well, I never said make-up now did I? NO.

        • November

          You are correct.


    Patti Labelle nose is still fug; Lil Kim had every work done, MJ part 2; MJ suffered from extreme bleaching…..look at his “kids” no pigmentation; vivica fox def had other procedures done, she’s a different person; latoya and lil kim are related in the plastic surgery world. Everybody and their mama had work done in Follywood

  • realadulttalk

    How in the world did you leave off Halle Berry?

    • MissAmerica

      Halle had nose job and skin lightening treatments.

      • Miko Blouin

        i dont like Halle Berry but that woman has never had plastic surgery or lightened her skin, you sound like a hater

        • Christine Ahern

          Actually I saw Halle Berry on Oprah some years ago and she clearly and unabashedly stated that she had rhinoplasty (a nose job) after she was crowned Miss America. She said she had it done to refine the shape of nose.

          • Britney Robinson

            Well if she had one it isn’t very defined. They did a great job it looks exactly like her moms nose! Also Halle Berry gets tans too look darker.

            • leana

              All you, have to do is Google Halle before and after surgery. It’s quite clear that she had her nose done. Make up can only due so much.

              • Britney Robinson

                All you have to do is google Halle with her mom, it is quite clear they have the same nose.

        • themeowster

          She’s had a nose job and liposuction. You’re delusional LOL

  • Jane Doe

    My bf is white and he told me I am so beautiful I don’t need plastic surgery.

    • TRUTH IS

      Now I can sleep peacefully now you have shared that tid bit 😀

    • enoni pond

      why did you feel the need to say your b.f was white???? so because hes white and you are not that means you must be beautiful if he said so,? im just wondering thats all
