It's been nearly 10 years since the first episode of Jersey Shore premiered on MTV — and with the highly-regarded Jersey Shore Family Vacation currently racking in a ton of viewership, fans are finding themselves with some not-so familiar faces on their TV screens. Meaning, not all of Jersey Shore's cast members — specifically Angelina Pivarnick — look the same!
The sassy brunette has yet to make her slated appearance on the reality reboot, so we decided to uncover a little bit about Angelina from Jersey Shore now to brace ourselves for her return. Seeing as it's been approximately eight years since Angelina last made an appearance on Jersey Shore Season 2, and there's no question her face has changed slightly since the last time we saw her, but has Angelina turned to plastic surgery in recent years or is it just natural aging? Life & Style reached out to the experts to find out.

According to Dr. Andrew J. Miller — who has never treated Angelina personally — the 31-year-old's face may be more natural than people originally thought. "I don't see much there. Her eyebrows are thicker, and she has aged a bit, but nothing obvious," he exclusively told Life & Style. "Possibly some lip filler because her upper lip is a little bigger," he added.
Fellow plastic surgeon Dr. Vartan Mardirossian, on the other hands, thinks there's more to Angelina's face. The doctor, who also has never treated the reality star, thinks she could have gotten "Botox to [the] forehead and around [the] eyes," as well as some "filler to [the] cheeks and lips." He also added that the Staten Island native may have even undergone a "possible rhinoplasty prior to [her time on Jersey Shore]."

Angelina had previously revealed to In Touch that she had indeed gotten her lips done. Back in September 2016, she told the news outlet that co-star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was trying to "copy" her look after the mother-of-two got lip injections. "It’s funny how she goes and gets her lips done at the same exact place that I got mine done. Yeah, so now all the times on [Jersey Shore] she used to call me ugly, now she’s trying to look like me."
She continued, "I don’t really think [the new lips] are doing much for her to be honest with you. I don’t know what the hell that's about but, whatever. But with me, I look totally different with it, you know?"

Angelina, who has since retired from bartending and is now a New York Fire Department EMT, will make her return to the hit show, along with Snooki, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley, Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz- Magro, and Deena Cortese. While her previous stints on the show ended prematurely, we'll have to wait to see if she gets along any better with her housemates! One person she won't have to worry about clashing with? Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, who declined to appear on the reboot.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation premieres on MTV on Thursday, April 5, at 8 p.m. EST.
