May 22, 2019

Melania Trump is a unique first lady, and she’s the first of her kind in many respects. Take as an example her occupation: we don’t remember any other former U.S. first ladies with a career in modeling!

Melania has always been a striking beauty. She started her career as a model when she was in her late teens and was living in Ljubljana. She went on to work in Milan and Paris before moving to New York in 1996, where she met her future husband, Donald Trump.

Now in her late forties, the First Lady looks incredibly youthful. But has she enlisted the help of plastic surgeons to achieve this fresh look? Let’s see what the professionals have to say!

Life in plastic?

Dr. Dev Patel took a look at Melania’s old and new pictures, and certain transformations that happened to her face in recent years were immediately obvious to the doctor’s trained eye.

He told that the First Lady had overdone it with Botox:

I noticed the very obvious signs of likely Botox recently, when watching her on a TV interview. She was given a rather personal account of her background yet her upper face was not moving in harmony with her words. In fact, it was not moving at all. This suggests too heavy doses are being used by her doctor. The effects of Botox look great but only when the result is more natural in appearance.

He also noticed a change in the shape of Melania’s nose, a change that simply cannot be age-related. Consultant plastic surgeon Jag Chana also agreed that Melania likely had a nose job at some point:

Comparing the earlier photo from when she is younger and the later life pictures one can see that the nasal shape has changed.

The nose is narrower and the tip is more refined. The very minor irregularities along the bridge line are suggestive of an osteotomy which is part of the procedure during a rhinoplasty which narrows the nose.

He also added that the First Lady may have used fillers to give her lips a fuller look:

Compared to her younger photograph the top lip appears fuller. This likely as a result of lip fillers.

What does Melania herself say about whether or not she had plastic surgery? She says her look is completely natural.

She insists she looks so youthful because she leads a healthy lifestyle, which includes a wholesome diet and regular exercise. Also, an elaborate skincare routine and daily dose of vitamins do the trick!
