Before-and-after photos of “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham were posted on In Touch Weekly, including a poll to see whether readers thought she looked better or worse after her chin augmentation and rhinoplasty. To the surprise of plastic surgeons everywhere, a shocking 95% thinks she looks worse after her procedures than before!
I’d have to disagree. I don’t know her plastic surgeon, but I think he did a nice job. Her profile is definitely improved. Her chin projects appropriately and the bump on her nose is gone. I’d give the result a thumbs up.
So why do people dislike her new appearance? Is it the Jennifer Grey syndrome? Sometimes we get used to how a person looks- flaws and everything. When those perceived flaws are removed, then sometimes we don’t like it. That person may technically look better, but can appear too different and even unrecognizable. Maybe that’s why so many people are disliking her new look.
Or maybe they’re just haters.

MTV’s Teen Mom Farrah Abraham previously underwent a breast augmentation during the taping of the reality show. She’s now come forward to In Touch magazine (complete with photos!) revealing that she underwent a rhinoplasty and chin augmentation. She admitted, ”I’ve hated my nose since I was 13. I don’t have to hate anything on my face ever again! I feel gorgeous!”
It’s nice to hear a star be so positive about her plastic surgery. I enjoy combining rhinoplasty and chin augmentation, since they work so well to improve the harmony of the face. I’ve seen many people who believe their nose is too big, when the real problem is a small chin! I typically use a solid silicone chin implant, placed through a small incision inside the mouth. There is no visible scar, the area heals quickly, and the implant can be removed easily if the patient doesn’t like it.

Farrah Abraham, the nineteen year old star of MTV’s Teen Mom states that the new season of the highly rated series will feature an episode where she undergoes a breast augmentation. According to a recent report:
“This season, you’ll see me get a breast augmentation,” Farrah, 19, says, “just because I feel like I lost boobage from having a baby! I think it’s helped my confidence and for me to feel more like a woman.”
Although breast augmentation in teens occurs all the time, I do not perform this procedure in women under the age of 18 unless it is for a developmental deformity. Women who are between the ages 18-22 I decide on a case-by-case basis, since the surgery is very serious and the potential patient must be mature enough to understand the potential risks and complications.
I’ve never seen Teen Mom, but somehow I wonder whether Farrah is actually a good candidate for this surgery!

MTV’s Teen Mom Farrah Abraham appears to have gotten a new pair of breast implants at the tender age of 19. The FDA prohibits silicone gel implants for breast augmentation in women under 22, so she undoubtedly has saline breast implants.
