Has Mariah Carey Undergone A Tummy Tuck?

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I think so!  She claims to have lost a total of 60-70 lbs after giving birth to twins 7 months ago.  Mariah looks amazing.  Her tummy is completely flat and there is no excess skin anywhere, including above her strangely round belly button.

I’ve seen a lot of patients who’ve had twins.  Although the population I see for tummy tucks is skewed (people who have excess abdomen skin), I think it’s highly unlikely that Mariah became as flat and stretch-mark free as she is after having twins without a plastic surgeon’s help.  In addition, her belly button looks like a “tummy tuck belly button.”  I suspect that she underwent a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) a few months ago.

Although it’s her business whether or not she underwent this surgery, I do think it’s a bit disingenuous to be a paid spokesperson for a diet plan when  you’ve secretly had body contouring surgery.



Mariah Carey Comments on my Plastic Surgery Speculation

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

On a recent interview on E! Radio, Mariah Carey commented on my recent speculation that she’s had plastic surgery:

“One of the rumors I just heard about was that I spent $150,000 in plastic surgery. What in the ham sandwich do they think I did? It’s very annoying.”

Oops. I think I annoyed her.

The much-disputed $150,000 figure was asked of me by the magazine, and my thought was that it is possible she could have spent this much to look so good. Not all of it would be attributed to plastic surgery, but also to skin care products, gym memberships and/or equipment, personal training, facials, chemical peels, body skin treatments, and even specialty foods and vitamins. When these things are taken into account, $150,000 for an A-list star like her is not outside the realm of possibility.

I am actually a fan of hers. In fact, the first CD I ever bought was her Vision of Love album when I was a freshman in college. I think she is a major talent and have enjoyed her music over the years, so I hope my comments haven’t caused her any hurt. I do think she looks fantastic.

Mariah Carey – The Purple Eater

Friday, June 30th, 2006


Mariah Carey is eating only purple foods in order to “keep a facelift away.” According to the Sun online, Mariah is reportedly eating only purple-colored foods three days a week because of their anti-aging benefits. Apparently her nutritionist (wouldn’t we all like to have our own nutritionist and chef?) believes that purple foods are nature’s best weapons in the battle against aging, due to the large amounts of vitamins and antioxidents.

I am not one of those “anti-aging” gurus, who focus their attention on hormone manipulation, vitamins, and organic dietary supplements. There is a Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, but it is not one of the boards which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, which means it is still a bit on the fringe. I encourage my patients to eat a balanced diet and avoid bad habits such as smoking, tanning, and overeating. I believe that it is important to live a life of moderation, which means that it is ok to enjoy eating out and some bad food every once in a while. Not everyone is meant to be 5’6″ and weigh 120 lbs.

On the lighter side of things, I guess that the 2 liter jug of Purple Passion that’s been in my fridge since college isn’t so bad afterall!

Mariah Carey – breast implants?

Friday, February 24th, 2006

Mariah Carey is busting out… I have always been a Mariah Carey fan (except for the brief “Glitter” period). I liked her most when she first appeared on the scene with “Vision of Love.” Back then she was in her early twenties, in great shape, and appeared very natural. In the last few years, she has gained a bit of weight and it seems that her breasts have at least doubled in size. She appears to have had a breast augmentation, with the implants placed below the muscle. This accounts for the space between her breasts, and the fact that she really can’t move them together to get midline cleavage, ala Dolly Parton. This is a classic sign of breast implants placed under the muscle. I tend to place the implants both above and below the muscle, depending on the wishes of the patient. Mariah has also either had her implants upsized recently, or her breasts have grown as she and her career have.
