In the past several years, the American singer has had to face several plastic surgery rumors. What happened to Carrie Underwood’s lips? We will try to find out today.
Carrie Underwood Plastic Surgery Rumors
So, has Carrie Underwood undergone plastic surgery? Did she maybe get any lip injections? Carrie Underwood fans have asked these questions in the past few years.
The June 2020 issue of Life & Style magazine stated, “Carrie has clearly had lip enhancement. Her lips look good, although she put a bit too much in on the sides. She is also taking good care of her skin, probably with regular facials, cosmeceuticals, and the occasional laser treatment”.
But what is the truth behind Carrie Underwood’s lips? Is it really plastic surgery? Or something else might have played a role?
Carrie Underwood’s accident might have played a role
If you didn’t know, the American country music singer suffered a freak accident in 2017. She had taken a hard fall down the stairs outside her Nashville home. The fall resulted in a broken wrist and upwards of 40 to 50 stitches.
The singer shared with her fan club members the following statement, “Even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not looking quite the same. When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”
And when she returned to the spotlight, her face appeared as flawless as ever. Naturally, fans asked if she has had any procedure done.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer gave his professional opinion, saying, “There are many ways to improve scars to help smooth the contour, blend the color and reduce shadowing. At my office, we treat scars with laser, micro-needling, topical treatments, injecting medications, and using dermal filler to smooth the contour.”
Carrie Underwood Reveals Scar
The American Idol winner is not afraid to show off her battle scars. She shared a selfie from the set of her Love Wins music video, showing the scar from her facial injury incident. The mark is above her lip and it reminds her of the fall on the front steps of her home in Nashville.
Speaking about the scar, she said, “Any time someone gets injured, it looks pretty bad in the beginning, and you’re like, ‘What is this going to wind up like?’ You just don’t know. It was also a perception thing because I look at myself [now] and I see it quite a bit, but other people are like, ‘I wouldn’t have even noticed.’ Nobody else looks at you as much as you think they do. Nobody notices as much as you think they will, so that’s been nice to learn.”
Carrie was quick to shut down rumors that the injury served as a cover-up for plastic surgery. The Grammy winner said, “It’s a little sad because the truth is just as interesting. I wish I’d gotten some awesome plastic surgery to make this [scar] look better.”
Following the accident, Carrie had to accept the fact that her face might not look the same after healing. And in the same time, she had to battle with online speculation and plastic surgery rumors.
Asked about what she would say to her fans to encourage them and boost their confidence, she said, “The first thing I would tell them is that we’re all insecure; that’s just called being human.”
She then continued, “I feel like the most important thing to realize is that even people who seem to be super confident have insecurities that they are dealing with. Honestly, you just do the best you can. Don’t worry about things you can’t change.”
In March 2018, Carrie came to social media and posted on her Instagram profile. She wanted to share her postpartum body struggles. The caption read, “I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. But I’m going to take it day by day, smile at the girl in the mirror, and work out because I love this body and all it has done and will continue to do!”
